Albers and Jordan

Dutch rookie Christijan Albers has emerged near the top of Midland owned Jordan's driver shortlist for next year. The Minardi man, a lauded ex-racer in Germany's tin-top DTM category, is the 'fastest Dutchman in formula one,' according to Jordan principal Colin Kolles.

Earlier, Albers' teammate Robert Doornbos – former 2005 'Friday' driver at Jordan – was believed to have a Midland offer in his pocket.

But Kolles, who last week showed Christijan around the Silverstone factory and reportedly is also keen on BAR tester Anthony Davidson, told ''If we sign up Albers there is only one seat available for a Dutchman.

''I read a lot of negative things about our team and I wanted to show him all the positive things,'' he explained of the factory tour. Meanwhile, Jordan's sporting relations manager – ex-F1 racer Johnny Herbert – agrees that Albers, who was also an F3 champion, is the 'best Dutchman that we can sign up.'
