FIA bans former Formula One driver Franck Montagny for two years

Former Formula One and Formula E driver Franck Montagny has been handed a two-year suspension by the sport's governing body after testing positive for a metabolite of cocaine.

The Frenchman failed the anti-doping control last November at a Formula E race in Malaysia and had been provisionally suspended since Dec. 23.

After hearing his case, FIA's Anti-Doping Disciplinary Commission said Montagny's ban will end on Dec. 23, 2016.

In an interview with L'Equipe newspaper earlier this year, Montagny admitted he was guilty and said he did not ask for the B sample to be tested.
