Montagny extends Super Aguri deal

Franck Montagny will continue to race for Super Aguri at the British, Canadian and US Grands Prix. In the weekend between the British and Canadian events he will be racing for the Pescarolo Sport team in the Le Mans 24 Hours, sharing a car with World Rally Champion Sebastien Loeb and Eric Helary. Montagny hopes that good performances result in the team deciding to keep him on for the rest of the year. The team had hoped to fins another Japanese driver but the problems involved seem to be insurmountable for the moment as there is no Japanese driver with sufficient knowledge of the F1 tracks.
