Super Aguri’s troubled pre-season continued today as the team cancelled plans to attend this week’s three-day test session in Barcelona.

The team were initially due to unveil their new car for the coming season tomorrow, but then ran into sponsorship difficulties.

Now the team have withdrawn from the test altogether, although hope to be back on track at the Circuit de Catalunya next week.

Team boss Aguri Suzuki confirmed: “We will not be participating at the test in Barcelona this week due to circumstances beyond our control.

“We are planning to attend the test at the Circuit de Catalunya next week with two cars.”

Suzuki has yet to confirm his driver line-up for the new Formula One campaign, leaving the future of Anthony Davidson up in the air.

Davidson did comment last week that he was hopeful of signing a new deal, although with less than four weeks to go to the season -opening Australian Grand Prix, time is running out.
