The latest on Jordan

The Jordan team is going to run with its usual drivers this weekend but there are still deals being discussed between the team and Dutchman Jos Verstappen. According to our sources, the stories about Verstappen stepping in are not far from the truth but the team would replace not Giorgio Pantano but rather Nick Heidfeld because the German is driving for the team without money. Verstappen would bring sponsorship from Trust but it seems that there are still problems getting an agreement between the team and Verstappen's management. It is not clear why there is a sticking point in the talks but the fact that the driver line-up in Imola is unchanged suggests that there is still a problem.
