Jordan’s German sponsor Deutsche Post tried to get Frentzen to sub for the injured Giancarlo Fisichella at last week’s French GP after he failed to qualify his Arrows.
The move was greeted with amazement in the paddock as Frentzen was sacked by Jordan after last year’s British Grand Prix following a string of disappointing performances. Frentzen was furious at his sacking and had been planning to take Jordan to the High Court for unfair dismissal.
Fisichella and Takuma Sato are contracted for next season but Sato’s place is by no means certain as Honda may opt to supply BAR as their only team next season. Frentzen could rejoin Jordan if Arrows lose their current battle for survival as Deutsche Post are keen to have a German driver in the team.
Speaking at Hockenheim, Frentzen said: "I have to say, Deutsche Post is quite keen to have a German driver.
"But I think to go back to Eddie's team there has to be something sorted which is quite important: I didn't sack Eddie Jordan, Eddie sacked me."
Frentzen also spoke of his regard for the the team's new technical duo of Gary Anderson and Henri Durand.
"They are two people who I really think are good for the team. I have great faith in them."
