Japanese driver Sakon Yamamoto has thanked the Spyker team for giving him a chance in F1 this season, even though he is not expected to retain his drive with the team for 2008 when it will have become Force India.
"This year was quite a variable season for me!" exclaimed Yamamoto. "At the beginning of the season I was a test driver for Aguri, and I raced in GP2 as a way to come back to F1. And I got a chance. The team was different, but it was a good opportunity to join with Spyker, and I really appreciated that they give me a good chance to drive in F1."
"I joined from Hungary, so in total I did seven races," he added. "In the first one in Hungary and the last one in Brazil I retired, but the other five races I finished. I tried as hard as I could and I really appreciate everybody who supported me, the team members and sponsors. So I really want to say thank you for a great season."
