Following an historic 2007 Spanish Grand Prix for the Super Aguri F1 Team where race drivers Takuma Sato and Anthony Davidson took the chequered flag in 8th and 11th positions respectively, the test team has arrived in Southern France for a one-car, four-day test at the Paul Ricard High Tech Test Track (Circuit du Castellet).

New recruit James Rossiter was undertaking the testing duties today and put the SA07 through its paces for the first time. The team completed balance work for the Monaco Grand Prix and long runs in the afternoon to gather data for the softer Bridgestone Potenza tyres available for the coming race.

Takuma Sato will continue the test for the team tomorrow.

James Rossiter:

"It has been a great first day with the Super Aguri F1 Team. It felt good to be driving again having last driven in February and I thoroughly enjoyed it! After quickly getting to know the team and the car, we worked on finding good car balance and running with the Monaco wings in the morning."

"In the afternoon we did longer runs evaluating the tyre options for the next race and we had good reliability. The team is very professional and we worked well together, so overall it was a very good first day for me."

Driver Day 1: James Rossiter
Chassis: SA07-05
No. of Laps: 128
Best Lap Time: 1:08.026
