Frentzen takes a rest

HEINZ-HARALD FRENTZEN spent the early part of last week in the hospital in Vienna, Austria, undergoing tests in an attempt to ascertain the cause of the illness which hampered his efforts during the Hungarian Grand Prix weekend. Despite a fever and a stomach upset which meant that Heinz-Harald was unable to eat during the race weekend he still managed to finish fifth in Budapest.

After the race, however, he had to be treated for exhaustion and spent some time at the circuit medical center on an intravenous drip. He was then helicoptered to Budapest's Ferihegy airport from where he was flown in his private plane to Vienna. Frentzen spent Sunday night in the Central Hospital in Vienna and remained there until Wednesday morning. He then returned home to Monaco where he was due to spend a few days resting in preparation for the forthcoming Belgian GP.
