Rahal looking for an F1 star
Frentzen is waiting to hear whether Williams will take up its option for his services in 1999. Frank Williams says that he is not going to make any decisions for some time but there has been much speculation that the team will dump JacquesÊVilleneuve and sign up new drivers next year because it is unlikely to be a very successful season with ageing Mecachrome engines. The man thought most likely to join the team is Columbian Formula 3000 racer Juan-Pablo Montoya.
Other names which have been linked to the Team Rahal drive are Damon Hill and CART star Jimmy Vasser.
