WS: Miguez latest to call it quits.

Although it is heading into another mid-season break, the World Series by Renault is assured of the latest in a series of changed line-ups when it resumes at Donington Park in September.

With time aplenty for further changes to be made to an already much-altered field, Celso Miguez has started the August ball rolling by calling time on his deal with Pons Racing. A lowly 29th and last among those to have actually scored points this season - albeit a single score from Istanbul last month - the Spaniard has not enjoyed the sort of result he had hoped for by remaining with the former champion team at the start of the season.

As a result, he decided to bring his season to a premature end after last weekend's Nurburgring round, leaving team boss Sito Pons to look for a new team-mate for rookie James Rossiter, who remains in the top twelve in points despite a recent barren spell.

The usual suspects from both GP2 and the World Series, most recently Olivier Pla, plus those looking to sample the extra horsepower prior to a possible graduation next season, will be in the frame, but Pons has a several weeks to weigh up his options before naming Miguez's replacement.
