Suzuki blasts Fry

The end of Super Aguri’s Formula One effort leaves the grid with just 20 cars, but Aguri Suzuki didn’t leave the without letting Honda Racing Chief Nick Fry know how he felt about his role in bringing about the end of his squad.

Fry has had much to say about Super Aguri’s future over recent days, and it has been previously reported Fry was the one who impounded Super Aguri’s cars in Brackley last week.

Allegedly, Fry was also responsible for telling Bernie Ecclestone the Leafield squad would not be participating in Turkey, even while Suzuki was working on a rescue deal with the Weigl Group.

The end result was the team getting locked out of the paddock.

At the Tokyo press conference announcing the end of the team’s race operations, Suzuki questioned Fry’s role in recent affairs, pointing out Super Aguri’s backers were Honda, not Fry’s Honda Racing team.

Suzuki also expressed disenchanted with Formula One, saying he had little interest in “dipping his hand” into the “piranha club” again any time soon.

For its part, Honda expressed disappointment Suzuki’s dream had come to an end, however, it accepted it was inevitable. It has been reported Super Aguri is indebted to Honda to the tune of $100m.
