Super Aguri announced Takuma Sato and Yuji Ide as its drivers, putting the final pieces into place for its debut season. Headed up by ex-F1 driver Aguri Suzuki, the team received financial backing from Honda to run Sato, who had been replaced by Rubens Barrichello at BAR. The car was based on a 2003 Arrows and was a long way off the pace of the rest of the field. Sato scored some respectable results but Ide, who had very little experience in a high-powered single seater, struggled and was eventually replaced after just four races by Franck Montagny. The team pulled out of the sport completely in 2008 when Honda withdrew its backing.
