The Honda-backed Super Aguri team has finally admitted defeat after months of struggling to survive.

Honda have withdrawn their support, and the team have been unable to find a new backer to enable them to continue.

Financial problems meant the team have did almost no preparation for this season and they were limping along only with Honda's support.

But the end was practically inevitable when Honda decided it no longer wanted the drain on its resources.
