Arrows to name driver line-up on Friday

Arrows will announce their driver line-up for the 2001 World Championships at the United States Grand Prix at Indianapolis on Friday.

The Leafield-based team will unveil their line-up for next year and current drivers Pedro de la Rosa and Jos Verstappen will be present at the announcement, suggesting Arrows will retain the duo.

Brazilian Ricardo Zonta, who has been replaced at British American Racing by Frenchman Olivier Panis, had said he was in talks with Arrows over a possible drive for 2001.

But the Orange-backed team are expected to announce that Spaniard De la Rosa and Dutchman Verstappen will continue their partnership for a further year.
