May 7 (GMM) Anthony Davidson has fended off suggestions that the Super Aguri collapse means he may never again contest a grand prix.
The British driver spent many years on the sidelines as a Honda tester, and - at the age of nearly 27 - finally earned a full time drive with the Japanese satellite Super Aguri outfit in 2006.Davidson, now 29, described the Honda-powered outfit's financial collapse this week as a "bitter blow" just four races into the 2008 season."But I am fully confident of my ability behind the wheel, and I'm sure things will be better for me in the future," he told BBC radio.Davidson vowed to "stick to formula one" for now, even though immediate racing opportunities in other series - such as A1 GP - may crop up."That's the priority at the moment and for the future. It's what I have to do, it's what I'm trained to do."I really want to concentrate and get a good chance to do it properly."I really feel it's unfinished business for me in formula one," Davidson said. "I feel it's where I belong."You only begin to realise just how much you love it when it's taken away from you."You never know in this game what can happen. You ride the ups and downs on this rollercoaster, and if it's been a downward slope today, then I'm sure we'll bounce back," he added.Davidson described the reduction of the F1 grid to just ten teams as a "sign of the times" that "privateer teams can't survive now".
