Cochet and Arrows

THERE are suggestions in France that Prost test driver Jonathan Cochet might be signed up by Arrows. This would only come about if France Telecom, the owner of title sponsor Orange wanted Cochet in one of the cars.

Such a deal might be attractive to the team if Orange agreed to extend the sponsorship beyond the end of the 2002 season. There have been rumors that Orange may decide to switch from Arrows to Renault Sport in the longer-term as both Renault and France Telecom are under the influence of the French government. Having said that Arrows is rumored to be trying to reorient itself to raise money in the United States in league with Red Bull.
