Jan.1 (GMM) Former F1 driver Franck Montagny failed a drugs test at a recent Formula E race, the French daily L'Equipe reported on Thursday.
The 36-year-old, a former Renault and Jordan test driver who raced seven times for Super Aguri in 2006, drove for the Andretti team in the new Formula E series this year in Beijing and Putrajaya.But Montagny was replaced by Jean-Eric Vergne at the Punta Del Este event, and he has now admitted it was because he tested positive for a cocaine derivative.The French sports daily said he is suspended from racing until the FIA hands down a sanction."After the event I saw the guy who tests signalling me," Montagny admitted. "There, in my head, I knew immediately. It was over."I made a mistake, I'm guilty," he added.Montagny has also worked as a F1 commentator for French television.
