Super Aguri are going into qualifying for the United States Grand Prix with plenty of confidence, despite a relatively low-profile day of practice at Indianapolis for Takuma Sato and Anthony Davidson.

Although it was not a day free of drama when Davidson was forced to have the gearbox and Honda engine changed on his car, both drivers came away pleased with the balance of their machines and they seek to build upon the form shown at the Canadian Grand Prix a week earlier.

"It was a good day," Sato said. "There was a problem with Anthony's car in the morning so we had to change to a combined programme which was not what was originally planned. In the end I think we got what we wanted to achieve and were able to evaluate the different wing levels and the tyres. It was normal, smooth-working Friday."

Despite the delay to his running, Davidson was pleased with the outcome of his day and quietly confident that the team can show well in qualifying once again.

"It was a really interesting day with the track changing a lot from start to finish. The track really came to our car as the rubber kept coming. We found a good balance and I'm happy with our day's work and looking forward to tomorrow's qualifying."
