All quiet on the Verstappen front
According to Verstappen's people the contract signed between the Dutchman and the team was registered with the FIA Contract Recognition Board and was even checked by the independent lawyers just before the Frentzen deal was done. If this was indeed the case it is hard to see how Arrows can argue that the deal was not binding.
The wheels of the British legal system are slow in turning but with six weeks having now passed since the announcement of Frentzen things should be coming to a head soon. For the moment however no-one is talking about what might happen.
