Super Aguri Formula 1, running in interim livery, participated in its first official FIA Formula One test at the Circuit de Cataluña, Barcelona today.

Mark Preston, Chief Technical Officer:

"The priority of this test was to begin track testing of the SA05 systems - including electronics, hydraulics and brakes. Although our reliability was not great today, it is the reason why we are here, to test and sort these kinds of problems out."

"This morning's running was cut short due to a small hydraulic problem which was soon rectified. However, in the rain-drenched afternoon, Taku spun at the hairpin, with no damage to the car, while experimenting with new traction control software."

"This afternoon's running was cut short by a similar problem to the one we had this morning. We will now be working overnight and are hoping for a successful day's running tomorrow when we start our tyre programme for Bahrain."
