Van der Garde was confirmed in Super Aguri’s driver line-up last December and made his test debut with the team at Jerez on Wednesday. However, after completing just four laps with the Japanese squad, he is understood to have signed a Spyker contract in the early hours of Thursday morning.

Outlining their position on the matter, Super Aguri have issued the following statement: "Super Aguri F1 Team has a valid contract with Giedo van der Garde to drive for the team in the position of Friday and Test Driver for the 2007 FIA Formula One™ World Championship. The contract was submitted by the SAF1 Team to the Contracts Recognition Board on 23rd January 2007."
