Anthony Davidson, who has a permanent home at F1B due to our Big-fan status, says he was very close to securing a driver or support role for Honda before the Brackley Based F1 team announced it’s immediate withdrawal from the sport.
“I was in serious talks of not only trying to get a race drive for this year with the team, but as the bare minimum as the reserve driver,” said Davidson at the Autosport International Show.
“Talks were progressing really well, and the deal was almost done just with a few weeks to spare before the announcement, and it now leaves me in a very similar situation to what Jenson (Button) faces now.
“I think in terms of Formula One drives it is looking very, very slim at the moment. You should never give up, but I am a realist as well and I have learned that over the last year and the year before. Working with Super Aguri really put me in a good position for now, for these times , because it was always a kind of rocky road anyway.”
