Jordan Grand Prix has thrown another name into the ring, regarding who might drive one of the Jordan-Cosworth EJ13's in 2003 - namely Arrows driver, Enrique Bernoldi.

Currently the team has two drivers under contract for next year - Giancarlo Fisichella and 2001 British F3 Champion, Takuma Sato.

A spokesperson for the Silverstone-based team, told Reuters: "We can confirm that Bernoldi is one of the drivers we've had contact with about 2003."

A number of names though have been linked to the Jordan team over the last few weeks, following news that former title sponsor, Deutsche Post, has decided to quit the sport. The team has also freely admitted that 'commercial considerations' may influence driver selection for next year.

Bernoldi's attraction then is thought to have less do with his talent and more to do with the fact he comes with considerable backing from Red Bull. The Brazilian did little to impress the F1 paddock during his two seasons with Arrows and his biggest claim to fame, was the controversy surrounding the Monaco GP in 2001. Then the Brazilian, calmly held up David Coulthard for much of the race, the Scot having dropped to the back of the field after his launch control failed at the start. DC had put the McLaren on pole the previous day and despite being considerably faster was held up for a good portion of the event.

Bernoldi's name then can now be added to the list that includes Eddie Irvine, he is thought to be favoured by Jordan sponsor, Benson and Hedges as he is British, Felipe Massa, who lost his drive at Sauber and also BAR-Honda test driver Anthony Davidson, who impressed during his two race stint this year, standing in for the 'rested' Alex Yoong at Minardi.
