Prost May Dump Mazzacane

Zonta, who sparred with teammate Jacques Villeneuve while driving for BAR last season, downplayed the reports, but admits he would like to race again soon.
"I would love to race this season," Zonta told Autosport magazine. "But I am not sure whether that would be good for the long term."
Zonta has been impressive in his testing role with Jordan, while Mazzacane has finished 22nd, 12th, and 13th in the season’s first three grands prix respectively.
The Prost team insists that Mazzacane’s seat is not in jeopardy, but doubts were raised when the team tried to bring in Pedro de la Rosa as a test driver in the off-season. De la Rosa has since left for Jaguar Racing, leaving the team stuck with Mazzacane and his lucrative PSN sponsorship arrangement.
