As reported on

Super Aguri have signed Japanese Formula Nippon driver Sakon Yamamoto as their third driver to replace Yuji Ide.

“Sakon drove at the Japanese GP last year (in free practice) so there’s no licence problem,” the team said.”But we are trying to comfirm it with the FIA so we do not repeat Ide’s example.”

Yamamoto is eventually expected to jump over Montagny in the all-Japanese team’s pecking order.
