Frentzen and Trulli out of race in first few laps of European Grand Prix.

The Benson and Hedges Jordan Mugen-Honda team suffered disappointment at the Nurburgring, both cars being eliminated within three laps of the start of the race. Jarno Trulli's car collided with the Benetton of Giancarlo Fisichella on the run down towards the first corner, damaging the left rear wheel and suspension and forcing him to pull off the track. Heinz-Harald Frentzen was forced onto the grass at the first corner, but recovered to hold 12th position before a suspected engine failure resulted in his immediate retirement on lap 3.
