The new Midland-Jordan Formula 1 will announce this afternoon that it has signed contracts with India's Narain Karthikeyan and Portugal's Tiago Monteiro. We are upgrading this rumor to 'fact' now ahead of the announcement. 02/01/05
Rumors out of Europe suggest that Tiago Monteiro might be close to signing a deal for the other Midland Jordan F1 seat alongside Indian driver Narain Karthikeyan, though the team has not confirmed the claims by Narain that he has already signed. Others in play for the seat include Anthony Davidson, Mario Dominguez and Robert Doornbos.
