The driver market stalled...
THE Formula 1 driver market is currently waiting to see what happens with Prost Grand Prix. We believe that Heinz-Harald Frentzen has a deal with Arrows which is conditional on whether or not Prost is taken over by a new management. If that happens Frentzen will be free to go to Arrows. This explains why he has been denying a deal despite strong rumors that an agreement with Arrows is in place.
The signing of Frentzen would mean that Jos Verstappen will come on to the market and the Dutchman is now waiting to hear if he has to move on. However he is virtually certain to be in F1 as he will move to either Prost or to Minardi.
The other available drives will then all fall into place with the indication at the moment being that the three seats will go to Verstappen, Tomas Enge and Mark Webber. It remains to be seen which driver will end up where. That will largely depend on who is in charge of Prost and how much money they have available to pay for an experienced driver.
