Enge to drive for Prost at Monza
AS we speculated would happen Prost Grand Prix has signed up Tomas Enge to drive for the team at the Italian Grand Prix at Monza this weekend. The announcement comes after Enge completed a three-day test with the team at Magny-Cours. He will replace Brazil's Luciano Burti who is still recovering from his accident at Spa-Francorchamps during the Belgian Grand Prix.
Enge will become the first Czech driver to race in the Formula 1 World Championship but he will not be the first in the history of Grand Prix racing as the country's most famous racer Elizabeth Junek not only competed in major events in the late 1920s but also led the Targa Florio.
Lucianjo Burti spent the weekend in the University Hospital in Liege under the care of the head of the hospital's trauma department Gary Hartstein, who happens also to be Professor Sid Watkins's assistant at all the Grands Prix.
