Super Aguri say talks still ongoing

Super Aguri's car parts in Barcelona on ThursdayThe Super Aguri Formula One team say talks to secure their future are ongoing, although the Japanese squad did not confirm if they will race at this weekend's Spanish Grand Prix.

The Japanese squad are still hoping to secure a last-minute agreement after a rescue deal with Magma Group collapsed last week, leaving Super Aguri's future in doubt.

Super Aguri have taken their cars to Spain, but their presence in the race remains doubtful.

The team issued a very brief statement on Thursday saying talks with possible investors continue.

"Further to the statement issued by Super Aguri F1 Team on Wednesday 16th April 2008 we advise that discussions regarding investment are on going, however, due to legal conditions, we are unable to expand on, allude to or provide further details regarding this confidential matter at present," the statement said.

"We would like to thank our Team partners, suppliers, our fans and colleagues in the media for their continuing patience and support, and we look forward to our weekend at the Barcelona Grand Prix."
