SUPER AGURI F1 TEAM CELEBRATES FURTHER MILESTONE

Fledgling Super Aguri F1 Team is celebrating its second milestone, albeit an unexpected one. Official F1 statistics show that Takuma Sato and the Super Aguri F1 Team completed more laps, and therefore greater distance, than any other team during the first three race weekends of the 2006 FIA Formula One World Championship thanks to the reliability of the team's chassis and engines.

Despite only taking one chequered flag in three race starts, rookie SAF1 Team driver Yuji Ide reached an impressive eighth place out of 22 in the total distance table.

Aguri Suzuki, Team Principal, Super Aguri F1 Team said: "I am very proud of what the team has been able to achieve so far. For us to compete in Bahrain for the first race of the season was beyond many people's expectations and we were able to reach this goal. Now for us to have completed more laps than any other team over the first three race weekends is incredible."

"I would like to thank Takuma for his solid driving and expertise, as well as the whole Super Aguri F1 Team for their great teamwork and determination in facing this challenge. We must also thank our partners at Honda for the reliability of our engines and our colleagues at Bridgestone. We will now concentrate on the coming rounds of the championship and on reaching our next goal as soon as possible."
