May 20 (GMM) Next year, Anthony Davidson could finally earn a spot on the formula one grid.
British magazine F1 Racing reports that the long-time Honda test driver, who has raced in actual grands prix just three times since 2002, is being eyed by Honda-backed Super Aguri.
''Next year Anthony would be fantastic for us,'' team principal Aguri Suzuki was quoted as saying, but he also admitted that Honda would have the final word.
The same magazine also claimed that David Coulthard could be a feature of the 2006 driver market, with Toyota apparently keen on the veteran Scot as a possible replacement for Italy's Jarno Trulli.
The Red Bull driver's manager, Martin Brundle, said: ''I wouldn't want to comment on the Toyota rumours -- besides, David remains extremely keen to drive a (Adrian) Newey-designed RB3 next year.''
Elsewhere in the F1 media, 'ITV' quoted a GPMA spokesman as confirming reports that Bernie Ecclestone finally put his signature to the carmakers' peace-making 'memorandum of understanding', which is likely to be the basis of a new 'Concorde Agreement' for 2008.
The spokesman said: ''I can confirm to you that it is true, that (Ecclestone) has signed.''
