Frentzen welcomed at Prost

LIKE Jean Alesi at Jordan, Heinz-Harald Frentzen will be allowed to conduct a maximum of 30 miles in his shakedown test at Magny-Cours tomorrow (Friday), as he gets used to his new team.

As Alain Prost seeks to maintain 'serenity' in Alesi's absence, Frentzen must readjust to life in his new team - just as his new team mate Luciano Burti did after he joined the French team from Jaguar Racing prior to this year's Spanish Grand Prix.

"I would like to welcome him at Prost and I know very well how difficult it is to change teams in the middle of the season," said Burti. "I will offer my help so he can adapt to our team as quick as possible."
