To those not accustomed to racing norms, especially that of F1, are likely surprised and disgusted. Imagine the Montreal Expos or Minnesota Twins troubles from a few seasons back ending in June. “Yep, season’s over, boys. Pack up your gear and head home. We can’t pay you.” In fact, last I checked, Safari failed to open http://www.saf1.co.jp/en/
In Super Aguri’s case, Honda can’t continue financially supporting Aguri Suzuki’s team. Sponsorship from SS United Oil & Gas Company didn’t pan out. And, as already mentioned, race results hadn’t come around after two years. This exit leaves 10 teams and 20 cars in Formula 1 for the remaining fourteen races.
