Midland drivers ready for French Grand Prix
12 July 2006 – Midland Formula 1 Racing heads to the Circuit de Nevers Magny-Cours for Round 11 of the 2006 FIA Formula 1 World Championship, the French Grand Prix - the first of an intensive European stretch of races that includes three GPs over the next four weeks.
Tiago Monteiro said about the upcoming race: "I like the track at Magny-Cours. I raced there quite a bit while I was competing in France in the lower categories, so I want to be able to take advantage of that experience. It will also be nice for me to see some friends and old sponsors I was close to when I was living there. The team has been working really hard to introduce some new parts for the car, so we need to recompense them with a good finish. We've had some competitive performances that haven't yet translated into good race results, so I really want to keep pushing hard to score the first points for Midland this year!"
