Frentzen replaces Fisichella for French GP

Arrows driver Heinz-Harald Frentzen will replace Giancarlo Fisichella of ****** in Sunday's French Formula 1 Grand Prix after all the teams agreed, the International Automobile Fedestration (FIA) has announced. More than five hours after the finish of Saturday's qualifying the FIA said they had approved a request from ****** to allow Frentzen to replace the injured Fisichella, assuming there were no contractual difficulties and all teams agreed by Sunday morning.

Fisichella was hurt after crashing at more than 200kph in the morning's final free practice session. The Italian was taken to a hospital in nearby Nevers for a medical examination which revealed no damage, according to the ****** team, but a FIA medical delegate advised Fisichella to rest.

The stewards of the French race said that Fisichella's accident was enough of an exceptional circumstance to allow him to be substituted by Frentzen.

Arrows, meanwhile, involved in a financial crisis, made just one attempt to post a qualifying time with Frentzen and teammate Enrique Bernodli finishing outside the 107 percent limit of the leader, Juan Pablo Montoya of Williams. Therefore the Arrows drivers did not officially qualify for the race but its participation kept it eligible for financial benefits of FIA.

Frentzen clocked 1:18.497 while Fisichella's morning practice time was good enough for 15th in that session at 1:14.949.

Frentzen drove for the ****** team between 1999 and 2001 and won two Grand Prix races for them, including the 1999 French Grand Prix. However he was fired by the team just before the 2001 German Grand Prix and finished 2001 with the Prost team, which went out of business earlier this year.
