Monteiro eyes 2006 seat

The race is hotting up for Midland's two 2006 race seats. While BAR tester Anthony Davidson and Minardi's Christijan Albers appear at the front of the queue, existing Jordan driver Tiago Monteiro reckons he has also staked a claim to hang around.

The Portuguese rookie, pretty impressive in his run to eighth in the Belgian grand prix, revealed that he met with managing director Colin Kolles on the morning of the race.

''We talked about next year,'' Monteiro, 28, told Autosport, ''and I think I have good chances to race for Midland.''

He added: ''Nothing is signed yet.''

Renault's Franck Montagny is also linked with a Silverstone based ride, but he would also be required to bring along a bag of sponsorship.
