Arrows picking up the pieces
TOM WALKINSHAW's Arrows team spent last week working flat out in order to have three serviceable cars at the Italian╩Grand╩Prix. The team suffered badly at Spa with Mika Salo crashing on Saturday and then both the Finn and Pedro╩Diniz becoming involved in the multiple car accident on the first lap. With three of the team's four cars badly damaged there was no time to test at Monza.
The car which Diniz used to finish fifth at Spa (chassis 06) will be raced from now on by Mika Salo while Diniz will use a new chassis (07) which is now being finished at Leafield. The team has rebuilt chassis 01 which Diniz crashed at the start of the race in Belgium and this will be the spare car at Monza. The team says that chassis 05 and 02 which were crashed by Salo can both be repaired, although they were extensively damaged in their respective accidents.
