Consistency is the key

Published March 19, 2010

Now, it’s not unusual for a misspelling of Franck’s name to occur. Quite often the unusual ‘c’ is missed out, and whilst grating, it is understandable. Most of the time, when I try and write it spelt the other way, as in Frank Williams, I add in the extra ‘c’. This is a much more acceptable spelling mistake, I find.

With FKM’s new gig in the Superleague Formula, I pointed out the nice photo that came with it. I was too distracted by a certain smiley Frenchman to actually notice the glaring errors.

This is at the top of the page, a title to the photo:

Franck Montagny spelling

And this is at the bottom of the page, more of a caption:

Franck Montagny spelling

Both incorrect, and not only that, but also both completely different. If you’re going to misspell someone’s name, a bit of consistency would be nice so that we knew it was just a mistake rather than utter carelessness.

This is not a good start.
