The Formula One Paddock makes a welcome return to the comfortable and familiar surroundings of the teams' motorhomes as the 2007 Formula One calendar commences its European leg in Montmeló, which is located a short distance from the exciting city of Barcelona, this weekend.

Both Super Aguri F1 Team drivers made a solid start to the Spanish Grand Prix weekend, focusing on completing longer runs and evaluating the Bridgestone Potenza tyre options.

Takuma Sato:

"We came to Barcelona with good car balance from the test, but it took a little time to work on the set-up today. We are happy with the evaluation the tyres we completed during the practice sessions, but I think that we need to look over the data tonight to work on a competitive package for tomorrow."

Anthony Davidson:

"It was an interesting day. We had different weather conditions to what we experienced at the test; it's a lot warmer here now and the car reacted slightly differently. We changed the way we worked with the tyres as well, so it was not as predictable a day as we thought, but a good day nonetheless. I am happy with the work that we achieved during the sessions and we came away finding a good balance."

Graham Taylor, Sporting Director:

"It was a very productive day for the team. We had a good session this morning and although the circuit was quite green we seemed to pick up from where we left off at the test here last week. We concentrated on a number of longer runs in the afternoon and I think we have found a good handle on the Bridgestone tyres."
