Davidson Tipped for Drive with New Team

Anthony Davidson has been tipped to join Takuma Sato at the new Honda-powered Formula One team next year, by his current boss

Nick Fry has said BAR would reluctantly let Davidson go from his current duties as test driver if he was offered a drive at the new F1 team.

"Anthony has got a good chance," said Fry, ahead of this weekend's Japanese Grand Prix. "He has proven himself and he keeps proving himself.

"At the last test, last week, he did an absolutely sensational job and he wants to drive a race car. He is well known to Honda and we would not stand in his way, even though it would be a loss to our testing efforts if he went elsewhere.

"I am sure he would have both our and Honda's backing and we would applaud someone who wanted to take him up."

Sato has spoken publicly about a firm offer he has from the Honda junior outfit and Fry believes that the new team would be very attractive for his current drivers.

"It is obviously a very good place for Taku to go," added Fry. "Obviously with Honda engine backing, the same engine as we are using next year, it is not going to be an out of date engine. So it is promising for him."
