Today's solid two-car finish by Super F1 Team drivers Takuma Sato and Anthony Davidson epitomises the team's year. The pair took the chequered flag at the end of the 2007 Brazilian Grand Prix in 12th and 14th positions following a tough, but exciting race.
The team will now be celebrating its own victories this evening as it has exceeded the goals set at the beginning of the year. The team ends the 2007 season in ninth position in the Constructors' Championship and Takuma finishes in 17th place in the Drivers' competition with four points. A further set of impressive milestones have been etched into the history of the Super Aguri F1 Team in only its second year.
"It was a tough, but exciting race. I did not get a great start off the line, but into turns one, two and three I was side by side and overtaking lots of people, in fact the whole lap was full of exciting moments and I really enjoyed it. I then started to struggle with the balance and pace, but I think that we had done everything we could and it was a tough race for the team."
"It has been a fantastic season and we have achieved so many things. Our result has been a great achievement. I would like to thank the whole team, the factory back in Leafield and our colleagues at Honda, our sponsors and fans for all of their hard work and support."
"It was a fun last race. The car didn't quite have the pace to match our stronger competitors in the mid-field, but we had reliability on our side again. The team did a fantastic job in all the pitstops and considering I got taken out by Sutil early on in the race I thought that my pace was really good towards the end on the prime tyre and I really enjoyed it. It was a good race to end the year on and I would like to thank everyone in the team, back at home in Leafield and in Japan, for their hard work this year."
Aguri Suzuki, Team Principal:
"The team has done an excellent job here in Brazil this weekend. Our target for the year was to end in a top ten position and with a Championship point and we have achieved this, so I am very happy. I want to thank everyone in the team, our Drivers, sponsors and all of our supporters and fans."
