Juan-Pablo Montoya has suffered the same ignominy as Williams-BMW team-mate Ralf Schumacher and had his driver’s licence revoked for speeding.

The Colombian had his licence confiscated after he was caught speeding on the French Riviera near to his home in Monaco. He was trapped doing 204 km/h in his BMW.

Furthermore, he could face a heavy fine and a long ban after being chased by police before pulling over.

Although the incident should not stop Montoya competing in GPs, since his competition license is not affected, it is another blow to a driver who has endured a disappointing season so far.

CARtoday.com reported late last year that Austrian police had confiscated Schumacher’s licence after the Williams BMW driver was caught speeding for the umpteenth time. The German has lost his driver's licence three times.

The tabloid Bild am Sonntag reported that Ralf was caught going 130 km/h in an 80 km/h zone while racing to Williams BMW’s Christmas party near Kitzbuehel.

Ralf was nabbed by traffic police from an overhead helicopter in 1996 “for driving too aggressively”. Then in April 2001 he was clocked going 170 km/h in a 100 km/h zone in Austria, costing him his driver's licence for 14 days.

More recently, Ralf plowed into a car in a traffic jam near Cologne, slightly injuring a woman and causing R170 000 in damage.
