Ralph Firman had a consultation with FIA Medical Delegate Professor Sid Watkins upon arrival at the circuit yesterday afternoon and it was decided that he should not participate in the Italian Grand Prix this weekend due to the residual effects of his accident at the Hungarian Grand Prix three weeks ago.

Jordan Ford has been given permission by the stewards of the meeting to replace Firman with Zsolt Baumgartner, who will drive car 12 for this round of the Formula One World Championship.

Firman will remain at the circuit until Saturday afternoon before returning home to continue his training programme in preparation for a test session at Silverstone on 17 and 18 September.
