Super Aguri deal close

The BBC is reporting Super Aguri is in final talks with German automotive company Weigl Group that should see it remain on the grid for the “foreseeable future.”

Team principal Aguri Suzuki has been on a desperate search to find funding since Magma Group and Dubai International Capital pulled out of a deal in April.

Suzuki was meeting with Honda this week to get its approval for the Weigl Group's deal, which would give the German company a "substantial shareholding" in Super Aguri.

The Honda board are expected to make a decision before next week's Turkish GP.

Sources report to the BBC that Super Aguri’s cars are on their way to Istanbul.

Kovalainen believes he’s ready to return

Just days after his spectacular crash in Barcelona, Heikki Kovalainen believes he is ready to return behind the wheel for next week’s Turkish GP.

It remains to be seen if he will pass the mandatory FIA fitness test.

Kovalainen said he has no recollection of the accident, which saw his McLaren bury itself to the airbox in a tire wall after a wheel rim failure.

It took nearly 10 minutes to extract the Finn from his car, yet he suffered no injuries save a "slight headache and stiff neck."

Kovalainen is currently training in Finland after spending several days resting in Spain. Don't miss the top stories of the day, subscribe to the SpeedRead Web newspaper now! -- Email SpeedRead -- Learn more about author C.D. Six
