Once again, poorly placed car numbers and helmet-obscuring cockpit padding have made it virtually impossible to distinguish between teammates while watching races on TV.

Please note that this information may change during the year, and that drivers occasionally make re-starts in cars with their teammate's marks. In '96 Jordan abandoned distinguishing marks after the first few races. It would seem they have done the same this year.
