After the race stewards have cleared Frentzen to drive for Jordan, it appears that legal issues have prevented Frentzen from accepting the offer and therefore Jordan will have 1 car in the race today. Of course this whole situation arose when Fisichella was advised to pull out of the event after his crash during practice and the Arrows team which Frentzen drives for failed to qualify. Session starting in 2 minutes.
Session starting at 9:30 AM local time. It is mainly sunny with an air temperature of 17 degrees.
