Magny Cours will ‘definitely’ be Franck Montagny’s last grand prix for now with Super Aguri…..Yamamoto, to re-complete an all-Japanese line-up, is sure to appear at Hockenheim, with Montagny saying: ‘I know this will be my last race. ‘From Hockenheim onwards I will certainly be the third driver.’

So we’ll have to see another banging-into-other-cars Japanese driver ? Once more the language-problem excuse for axing the driver ? Montagny at least kept his hands clean and stayed away from other cars [not that he could catch them]. But I can understand the pressure Aguri Suzuki might been feeling to have all-Japanese driver lineup, thanks to his Japanese sponsors.

The fledgling team's boss, Aguri Suzuki, admitted that the language barrier played a notable role in 31-year-old Ide's struggle earlier this year, and subsequent loss of his Super License credentials. 'He'd done just 200 kilometres in an F1 car before Bahrain,' said the Japanese.

Aguri Suzuki, who has temporarily replaced Ide with Franck Montagny, told Britain's F1 Racing magazine: 'Because he's so inexperienced ... even I found his answers hard to understand.'
