NEWS STORY
16/02/2006

Following the shakedown at Kemble Airfield on Tuesday, when Super Aguri drivers Takuma Sato and Yuji Ide both got to run the car they will drive in the season opener at Bahrain, the team's chief technical officer, Mark Preston, spoke exclusively to Pitpass

"Yesterday's test at Kemble kicked off without a hitch," he revealed. "The car now has the full mechanical and electronic specification that will run in Bahrain. All systems checked out OK, including completely new software for the gearbox and chassis.

"Although only a short test," he continued, "we were extremely happy with the level of reliability and the level teamwork and interaction that has developed between Super Aguri F1 and Honda. I would like to thank everyone for their enormous effort over the proceeding weeks to get the car to the track as planned. It gave Sato and Ide a chance to feel what the car will be like and prepare themselves for the next few hectic weeks of testing before Bahrain."
