No sign of Arrows in America
It is not a surprise but there is no sign of the Arrows team at Indianapolis and no-one seems to think that the team will be seen again this year. The team has not raced since the German Grand Prix in July and it is highly doubtful that the team actually has the rights to return to the World Championship next year although so far no-one has actually challenged the team's right because it has not been necessary to do so and because in F1 there appears to be a consensus that the other teams will go easy on Arrows.
There is still supposed to be the potential of an American investor but it is now more than a month since Tom Walkinshaw announced he had signed a deal.
