Arrows confirms Jos Verstappen
The team's technical director Mike Coughlan hopes that the new car, which has been designed by Egbahl Hamidy with input from the new Arrows head of research and development Dr. John Davis, will be a significant step forward.
We hear that the consortium which is bidding to buy control of Arrows has not produced enough money at the moment but is in the process of trying to find additional finance. Walkinshaw is not keen to sell but may be forced to do so if he cannot raise more sponsorship this year. The team is still well short of the minimum budget it requires in 2000.
A few good results may make a big difference.
