Of Names and Chassis
Although Aguri Suzuki exclusively confirmed to this column in Brazil that his tiny Super Aguri team's SA07 chassis was ready for the wind tunnel, a very strong chance exists that the design will remain unraced.
This situation may come to pass not, though, as a result of any shortcomings in either the engineering or finance departments - although, for obvious reasons, both operate under rather large constraints - but through the plans of another team, an operation whose only relationship with Formula One's newest outfit is that both are listed at the very bottom of the 2006 constructors' championship points' log.
And, Super Aguri is not the only team whose future chassis options are affected by the recent take-over of the Midland team by Spyker, the Dutch-based maker of way-out cars. Scuderia Toro Rosso, too, could be affected should the latest rumours surrounding Spyker mutate to fact.
