Jos Verstappen hasn't given up on Formula One and is still hoping to find a race seat for the future. Unceremoniously dumped by Arrows in favour of Heinz-Harald Frentzen at the start of the season, Verstappen still intends to take legal action over the incident but meanwhile he is busy behind the scenes.

"I am not worried, we are very busy in the background. We are talking to teams and potential sponsors," he told his official website. "My feeling is that I will have a seat next season, that hasn't changed. If there is a free seat this season that would be convenient, depending where that free seat is."

"I would prefer a drive with a good team with some future perspective for next season above as seat now with a team that drives at the back of the field. Concerning the names, that's okay. Nothing is for certain in Formula 1, even if you have a signed contract your future is not secure."

Asked if his return to F1 is definite, he replied: "Same answer as always: we are talking to everyone. It does look very good for 2003, I am very confident. We are also making progress with sponsoring. We are getting closer, step by step."
