Former Formula E driver Franck Montagny won’t be allowed to race in the next two years. The FIA Anti-Doping Committee announced the verdict in Paris after the Frenchman was tested positive for Benzoylecgonine, a metabolite of cocaine, after the Putrajaya ePrix in November 2014.

Montagny was found to have violated Article 2.1 of the 2014 FIA Anti-Doping Regulations. In addition to the two-year sanction, which expires on December 23 2016, Montagny has been disqualified from the final classification of the Putrajaya ePrix.

The question remains if 37-year old race driver will definitively end his career after this decision. Earlier he admitted the use of drugs.
