A job for Kovalainen

Heikki Kovalainen is expected to be named as the Renault F1 test driver, following the news that the current incumbent Franck Montagny is leaving the role. The Frenchman was signed up to give the team a more French feeling three years ago but has never really been considered as a potential racer by the team. This is very frustrating for Montagny, who will now try and use his experience in F1 as the key to get a job with another team. Montagny might find work at Jordan if he can raise the money but otherwise seems unlikely to land an F1 job.
