Davidson determined to stay in F1

Britain's Anthony Davidson says he intends to stay in Formula One after financial problems forced his team Super Aguri to withdraw from the sport.

"It's a difficult time of year to suffer this bitter blow, but I'll bounce back," he told BBC Radio 5 Live.

"I'm fully confident of my ability behind the wheel, and I'm sure things will be better in the future for me."

The 28-year-old started his career as a test driver for BAR and joined Super Aguri in 2007.


Super Aguri's demise is an unfortunate turn in the career of Davidson, who made his Grand Prix debut in 2002 filling in at F1 minnows Minardi.

This latest twist leaves Davidson out in the cold, with 24 races under his belt but no points from any of them.

But Davidson said he wants to remain in the sport he loves.

"I have to stick to F1. That's the priority at the moment and for the future. That's what I have to do, it's what I'm trained to do," he said.

"I really want to concentrate and get a good chance to do it properly. I really feel it's unfinished business for me in F1. I feel it's where I belong.

"But you never know in this game - you ride the up and downs on this rollercoaster.

"This has been a downward slope but I'm sure we'll bounce back.

"You begin to realise just how much you love it when it's taken away from you."
