|Frentzen's Christmas wishes...
||[26 Dec 2002|02:09am]
It hasn't been the easiest of years for Heinz-Harald Frentzen, the German driver hoping to begin the 2002 with the Prost GP team who signed him up after he was surprisingly dropped by team boss Eddie Jordan halfway through the 2001 championship. However, when Prost was forced to liquidate, Heinz made the move to Arrows instead.
There another story of disaster unfolded with the team running into severe financial difficulty just prior to the British GP. Frentzen soon left the team to cope with their problems without him and sat and watched the season unfold without him. A one off appearance at the USGP for Sauber, replacing Felipe Massa after the Brazilian was handed a ten place demotion, was the only other highlight of his year.
Now, the 2003 season is dawning and the German driver is looking forward to his new role with the Swiss based squad. Here he thanks all his fans and supporters over the last 12 months and wishes everyone a very Merry Christmas.
A year of turmoil comes to an end. Many things have happened this season. There were great races, but I also went through a period of uncertainty. But there is one thing I can always rely on: the support of my trusty fans, he said on his official website. Now that the year arrives on the finishing straight, I want to thank you for your praise, the positive but also the negative comments. Despite many highs and lows, it is clear that I enjoyed the 2002 season. Now I am eagerly anticipating a new challenge: the forthcoming F1 season with Sauber Petronas. I wish a Merry Christmas and a successful start into a promising 2003 season to all my friends, fans, colleagues, partners and their families.
