How much more ridiculous the things can get? According to SpeedTV sources close to the Super Aguri team say that Honda effectively sabotaged its customer outfit’s chances at Spa.
Super Aguri were not allowed to use a wing design that it had used at the Spa test in July and found to be very competitive. Instead come the race weekend Honda provided Aguri only with less effective options, including a Barcelona-spec wing.
Indeed Anthony Davidson was so frustrated by the performance of his car in qualifying spec that he opted to drop out of parc ferme and start from the pit lane with a different wing fitted.
Ironically, in the race Takuma Sato still managed to fight his way past Jenson Button by going around the outside at the corner at the end of the straight, much to the embarrassment of the works team.
This would not be the best PR ahead of Japanese GP…I hope both Honda and Super Aguri deny this news as a piece of rubbish …
