Super Aguri Lifeline?

Super Aguri Team

Autosport reports that German automotive company, Weigl Group, is engaged in talks to support Super Aguri for the balance of 2008 and take some ownership or involvement in the team. The deal must be sold to Honda and Aguri Suzuki is flying to Japan to sell the 8-ball committee on the idea.

It must be said that I hope this deal goes through and that Honda, unwilling to support SA further, will help the team engage the Weigl Group in a meaningful manner to keep them on the grid.  We need Super Aguri!  I also hope that Mr. Ecclestone can be influential in helping this deal materialize.

Those comments may have spoiled his welcome at SA and should come after SA was officially dead or at the end of the season.

He was trying to be positive when interviewed on the track just before the start of the Spanish GP. So his comments are born of frustration and are no doubt felt throughout the team.

Hopefully a deal, any deal, comes off soon.

I’d love to see what he could do in a competitive car. The Ant’s attitude and passion is quickly making my opinion of him rise closer to the level of my favourite Brit – Johnny Herbert.
