The Aguri Suzuki rumours

super-aguri

There are reports circulating the web suggesting that Aguri Suzuki may be considering return to Formula One. Some sites refer to Reuters as the source while Reuters site refers to Japanese Sankei Sports. I looked up the Sankei Sports website, Google translated their article and … haven’t really found anything other than the sentence copied around by different news and F1 sites:

“If it’s physically possible I would certainly like to (come back to F1)”

I am sure there are many fans around the world who would like to see the Super Aguri team back in F1. It seems to me however that the media are making too much out of Suzuki’s words. I would be very surprised if Super Aguri name appears among the 3 new F1 entrants …

It is also interesting that these rumours appeared exactly a year after Super Aguri team left Formula One

The applications to compete in the 2010 Formula One World Championship have to be submitted to the FIA during the period 22-29 May 2009. The FIA will publish the list of cars and drivers accepted on 12 June 2009. So far USGP, Prodrive, Lola and iSport expressed their interest (intentions) to enter Formula 1 in 2010.

    Let’s make it more ridiculous. Are there again some rumors of Spanish investors? A year before I believed thanks to the Spanish and French press that Super Aguri would receive Spanish backing… And now what? It is possible that they get a place, while there are free places. But very implausible that they reach a candidature when already failed once in the F1, they’re the team which less repercussion would have, they even have the facilities, neither for build-up a car with customer pieces from here and there and standardized engine or build something by their own, and well… They would be the team which less implausible would have probably, but yes, they have their own fans and they push hard, if they have already not forgotten the F1 team or switched to another one :P

    I don’t see much future to these rumors, even the words are not clear if there is a wish to enter, while the candidatures are open, we can expect anything but not the improbable return of the Japanese boys. If there are committed to join the championship and are doing all possible to reach the budget, then I’ll wish them much ‘aguri’ (that’s an Italian expression to wish good luck).

    With three spaces open for teams, and one already taken by the USGP team, i can’t really see Aguri being one of the teams to enter next year.

    Probably more likely to be Richards team in whatever guise that is and the 13th slot won’t get filled for another year.

    FIA blew it the last time by having a “tender” for the last place but didn’t bother (as usual) to make rules clear for what you can and can’t do. Hopefully this time, the rules are little more simple to follow so that a team can make it on to the gird next year. (I doubt it will be simple though as with this “two-tier” system and such no one entering will find this easy!)
