Super Aguri have opted to postpone the official launch of their 2008 car it was revealed on Tuesday. The Japanese squad had intended to unveil the SA08, which passed its mandatory FIA crash tests last week, at Barcelona’s Circuit de Catalunya on February 19.

Instead of launching their new challenger, team principal Aguri Suzuki and technical director Mark Preston will be present at the Spanish track to answer questions. The team’s finalised driver line-up, livery and sponsorship package is not expected to be unveiled until the season opener in March in Australia.

Takuma Sato is currently testing for the squad in Spain. The Japanese driver is behind the wheel of an SA07-5B at this week’s multi-team session at Jerez.
