An interesting choice

It's amazing what drivers will do to be in F1. Frank Montagny has just signed to be Super Aguri's third driver for the first three GPs.

Quite normal you might think, but the boys (and girls, I guess) only have two cars. So what's the point? I assume that Frank thinks that staying under the noses of the F1 team managers means that should a vacancy arise, which would probably mean avain flu wiping out half a dozen drivers, he would be on hand to step in.

Sad that he has to turn down a drive in the US, but that's the way it goes these days.

Either that or he's counting on Ide being so slow that they drop him and give the third driver a chance.
