    (could it be when Sato passed Alonso, this investor wanted to make the team Spanish? ;} )

    Super Aguri remain in talks with a number of investors about becoming partners in the team, but have denied reports that a deal has been completed with Spanish businessman Alejandro Agag.

    The Leafield-based team have made no secret of the fact that they have been looking at linking up with potential investors to help secure their future, and have held talks with several interesting parties.

    One of those interested was Agag, who is a majority shareholder in the Campos Grand Prix GP2 team.

    Talks between Agag and the team were held in the middle of last year, and reports in German newspaper Auto Bild at the weekend suggested that a 50 percent buyout had been agreed.

    That claim has been denied by Super Aguri, however, with managing director Daniel Audetto making it clear that no talks had recently taken place between the team and Agag.

    "We have had no recent dialogue or an ongoing relationship with Agag," said Audetto on Monday.

    Super Aguri are due to launch their new car at Barcelona on February 19, and are expected to retain drivers Anthony Davidson and Takuma Sato.
