Ide banned

Post by Selcouth_Feline »

I read this morning that Ide is only allowed to test this weekend and not race because his driving is "too dangerous". The decision was taken after he crashed into Klien in his last race.

I'm pleased that they've taken this decision because he does do rash things - does anyone know if it's a ban 'forever' or if it's just for the next race?

Klien? Thought it was Albers he punted off? Not sure about how long the ban will be, but it is needed. :roll:

Ironically, Montagny has never raced either, only test driving and Friday practice, but lots of it.

Lol - that's not saying much! ;) Montagny seemed a bit 'choppy' on the wheel, but otherwise ok, from what I saw. Only time will tell.
