Albers confirmed - Holland goes nuts!

Christijan Albers has been confirmed as a Minardi Formula 1 driver for next season and Holland is currently rejoicing. The sport has been in decline in Holland since the disappearance of Jos Verstappen and the arrival of Albers will be a shot in the arm for the thousands of dedicated Dutch fans. But there is probably even better news to come because all the signs are that in the New Year Robert Doornbos will be named as one of the two Jordan drivers. Doornbos is currently biding his time, waiting to see what happens with the ownership of the team but, come what may, he is the man most likely to join the Silverstone-based team.

Nothing is going to happen for a while however as team boss Eddie Jordan has taken off to Barbados for Christmas.
