Williams boss Patrick Head reopened old wounds with his driver Juan Pablo Montoya, when he speculated that the Colombian had signed a contract with McLaren for 2005 because of an argument he had with him at the 2003 French Grand Prix. Montoya swore at his team over the radio when he believed it had altered the strategy of his team-mate Ralf Schumacher to give the German an advantage. Head said: "I think that Juan was not impressed at having his knuckles rapped and I know the decision to sign with McLaren was taken within a few days of that. Juan incorrectly thought that we had notified Ralf of his actions and called Ralf in one lap early. So he was pretty strong on the radio, abusing the team verbally for the next ten minutes."
