Raikkonen and Verstappen on FIA entry list

It also lists Arrows as Orange Arrows Asiatech, almost certainly ending speculation that Orange was about to withdraw its sponsorship from the team.

Raikkonen's inclusion means that he is Sauber's first choice for next season, although the young Finn still has to have his Super Licence granted by the Contract Recognition Board.

Other items of note are Benetton's power supply which is TBA, although this is more due to them deciding what to badge the Renault engine before Renault's official return to F1 2002.

Minardi and Prost have elected not to name full teams, with Jean Alesi being the only named driver out of the four seats.
