Test driver Franck Montagny says Toyota colleague Ralf Schumacher’s problems this year have also hurt him.
The Frenchman explained at Magny Cours that because racer Schumacher is struggling with the TF107, most of the private testing miles have been assigned to Ralf.
“We only have one car, so unfortunately for me all of my planned days have been taken away,” Montagny said on Thursday.
“That’s the deal; when you sign the contract you know it can be like this. You hope it’s not, but there is the possibility,” Montagny, who spent all week at Silverstone last week despite not actually driving the F1 car, added.
