Sato hoping to drive new car in France

Friday June 16 2006

It has been a long and slow year thus far for the Super Agruri team but according to reports the newest F1 team could be set to unveil their new car on the team return from the American GP.

Takuma Sato and Franck Montagny struggled for pace at Silverstone last weekend but Sato is excited about the possibility of a new car from the team.

The former Toyota man hinted this week that the teams new challenger is nearing completion and could be ready for the 11th round of the Formula One season.

"It (the teams race pace at the British GP) was shocking. I thought we could be closer but the other teams are developing well.''

"Everyone is making a big effort to get the new cars ready for the French grand prix."

"We're really excited about that!"

Earlier this season Montagny replaced Yuji Ide after the Japanese driver struggle but now the Frenchmen looks set to be axed in favour of the teams Friday practice driver, Sakon Yamamoto.

It is not clear how many more races he will have but the change seems very much on the cards in the new future.
