Double Dutch at Minardi

The FIA President Max Mosley likes to say that Paul Stoddart comes out with double Dutch and it looks like that is going to happen at Hockenheim with Robert Doornbos almost certain to be named as the replacement for impecunious Austrian Patrick Friesacher alongside Christijan Albers. The news will have the large numbers of Dutch F1 fans dancing in their clogs but it is unlikely to please the two drivers,who do not get on, as both are trying hard to be Holland's biggest racing star, a job title which is currently vacant now that Jos Verstappen has faded from the scene. Putting the two men head-to-head will sort out the problem of who is fastest.
