Aguri bidder emerges - report

Weigl Group reportedly interested in F1 strugglers

Cash strapped Formula One team Super Aguri could be bailed out by Automotive company Weigl Group, according to a report on Autosport on Tuesday.

Weigl Group boss Franz Josef Weigl was reportedly present at last weekend's Spanish Grand Prix and has been linked with a 6.5million bid for the team run by Aguri Suzuki.

Super Aguri are close to financial meltdown after deals with Magma Group and Dubai International Capital failed to materialise.

Their participation at the Turkish Grand Prix on May 11 is likely to hinge on securing fresh investment in the near future.

According to the report, any deal with Weigl Group would likely only secure Super Aguri's future for the remainder of the 2008 season, with a long-term solution to be sought at a later date.

Team principal Suzuki will meet with Honda's top brass in Japan this week and he is expected to urge Super Aguri's parent company to accept the Weigl Group bid.
