Heinz-Harald Frentzen is an important player in the F1 driver market at the moment because of a number of good showings this year with the Arrows team. Frentzen joined Arrows late in the day but has done well despite all the troubles which have surrounded the team. Now he is a man in demand again and, ironically, was in demand from Jordan (which fired him a year ago) at the recent French GP. There are doubts about the future in F1 of both Deutsche Post and Benson & Hedges but big name drivers from the right markets might make a difference. Deutsche Post is reported to be keen on a German driver - and Frentzen is the only one available.
But in order for that to happen a legal settlement must be found over the contract for this year.
Frentzen is being mentioned as a possible Toyota driver, and also as a potential driver at Sauber and we have also heard suggestions that Jaguar Racing want him. Germany is a big market for Jaguar and sales have been slow to date.
One way or another Frentzen does not have to worry too much about the future.
