Firman will not race

Jordan Grand Prix driver Ralph Firman will not be racing at Monza this weekend because of a balance problem related to problems with his inner ear. Firman crashed at high speed in Hungary three weeks ago.

It is not yet clear who will replace the British driver but it is likely to be either Bjorn Wirdheim or Zsolt Baumgartner. The team is expected to make a decision some point this evening.
