No change at Minardi?

GIANCARLO MINARDI says that his F1 team will probably stick with the same drivers next year and has confirmed that even if there is not a Grand Prix in Argentina Esteban Tuero will remain with the team. It is still to be decided whether Shinji Nakano will remain as Tuero's team-mate but the Japanese driver is well-connected and should be able to swing a deal which will keep him in F1. Other drivers who are said to be interested in a Minardi drive are Brazilians Ricardo Rosset and Tarso Marques and Spaniard Pedro de la Rosa, although he is expected to get a job with Arrows.

Minardi is to continue its policy of testing up and coming young drivers and is planning to run Spaniard Marc Gene and Dutchman Donny Crevels - the new Italian Formula 3 Champion - at the start of December.
