It seems Jordan may have gained the sponsorship of Trust, Jos Verstappen's backer, despite the Dutchman not racing for the team. A few weeks ago it appeared that Verstappen's signing was imminent -- during testing Trust's logos were on the car, although Verstappen never actually got behind the wheel.

The deal fell through and the logos disappeared from the Jordan. Trust and Eddie Jordan blamed Verstappen's management for the breakdown in negotiations and Jordan signed Giorgio Pantano instead.

Trust said at the time that it would continue to back Verstappen but not with his current management. The company is still interested in being a racing sponsor and this week Jordan was testing at Silverstone with Trust logos back on the car.

There has been no comment from Jordan or Trust regarding the situation.
