The Swiss Sauber team have confirmed that Pedro Diniz has signed for the team for 1999.

This comes as a blow to the Arrows team, who no longer will have access to his sponsorship funds. Separately, Arrows sponsor Danka continues to be dogged with financial problems and is reported to be getting close to a critical situation after a further profits warning and a collapse in share price.

This could lead to the Arrows team seeking a new title sponsor and backup sponsors.
