Super Aguri F1 Team third driver Giedo van der Garde (Netherlands) joined the team on track in Spain today driving the SA06 B-04 to accrue the necessary mileage required for his FIA Super License application.

Unfortunately a mechanical issue with the car curtailed his running prematurely. It is hoped that there will be enough circuit time available tomorrow to facilitate qualifying for his Super License.

Takuma's testing programme in the SAF1 Team Interim Car comprised continued analysis of the Bridgestone Potenza tyres and control systems development. This progress was hampered however by the unusually inclement Spanish weather.

Anthony Davidson will take over the test driving duties tomorrow from Takuma.

Drivers: Takuma Sato and Giedo van der Garde
Chassis: Takuma SAF1 Team Interim Car, Giedo SA06 B-04
No. of Laps: Takuma 37, Giedo 4
Best Lap Time: Takuma 1:14.812, Giedo 1:26.348
Position: Takuma 14th (out of 16 cars), Giedo 16th
