Super Aguri announced that Anthony Davidson would be joining Takuma Sato at the team for the 2007 F1 season. Davidson had been a Honda test driver for the last few seasons after making his F1 debut in 2002 when he drove two grands prix for Minardi with a one-off race for Honda in 2004. “This is a great opportunity for me and I’m really excited about my first full season as a race driver,” said Davidson. “I’ve been impressed with the improvements the team has made through the 2006 season, and I can already see from my first visits to the factory that the team is very hard-working and highly motivated. I can’t wait to get started.” He drove in 21 grands prix in 2007 and 2008.
