Default NEW Japanese team to join Formula One

A Japanese team powered by Honda engines has applied to join Formula One from next year. The new team formally notified the FIA of their intention to race in 2006 last week, ahead of the November 15 deadline for entries.

The last new entrant was Toyota in 2002, when there were also 11 teams. There have been 10 teams since Arrows folded during the course of that season....

Quite outdated news. No concrete evidence just yet. So no need to speculate any further.

Would that be Suzuki - the company ?
I thought it's Suzuki - a person/surname ... or does this person own Suzuki (the company) ?

As in, Aguri Suzuki, ex-Japanese F1 driver. His last name makes for an interesting read though.

I am sure this new team will be there in 2006 with complete backing of Honda and will have Bridgestone as tyre supplier and probably Sato as one of the drivers. But they have very less time for new season to start, so I expect them to be only just as good as minardi.

I read this article in my BBC news mail..and they will indeed be supplied with Honda engines and may have Sato(the Japanese Factor)as their driver and Bridgestone as their supplier for tyres...and may be just as good as Minardi because of the lack of time.

Super Aguri has also appointed former Arrows and McLaren engineer Mark Preston as its technical chief.
