As reported yesterday, Franck Montagny will drive his home Grand Prix at Magny-Cours. Today, though, the team announced that Sakon Yamamoto, the third driver of the team, will take over from Montagny at the German Grand Prix.
Yamamoto "The last three Fridays at race weekends with the SAF1 Team have taught me a great deal, but I also hope that I have been able to give important and valuable information back to the team. I know the circuit at Magny-Cours from my F3 driving days and so I am looking forward to driving there again. The team is improving everyday and maintains its good motivation, so I see no reason why we should not have a good weekend in France."
