Jarno was a star in karting from 1983 and by the time he moved into cars the slightly built Italian had racked up successes all around the world. His mid-1995 debut in German F3 was sensational: in his half-season he amassed enough points to place fourth in the final rankings, signing off the year with wins in the last two rounds at Hockenheim.

It is not surprising, therefore, that Trulli was the hot favourite for the title with his KMS Motorsport Dallara in 1996. The little Italian delivered with six wins and it was only the late-season appearance of Nick Heidfeld that gave him cause for concern.

Benetton boss Flavio Briatore had the Formula 3 star under contract and duly found him a seat in the Minardi team for 1997. Paired with the experienced Ukyo Katayama, Jarno soon proved the faster driver and his already astonishing rise towards the top was further fast-tracked when he was moved into the Prost line-up to replace the injured Olivier Panis.

Sixth place on the grid on his debut for the team at the French Grand Prix was a sign of good things in the offing, and a fourth-place finish in Germany was followed by a brilliant performance in Austria where he led the race before his engine failed.

Naturally impatient for success, Trulli had to endure a largely barren season in 1998 when his car was overweight and unreliable. The frustrated driver hardly got a decent run throughout the year and his motivation was given another searching examination at the beginning of 1999, when the Prost was still a midfield runner at best.

It is fair to say that the Prost team was not the happiest of ships during the year, both Trulli and Panis having their differences with the demanding proprietor. Trulli, not unnaturally, grabbed his big chance by signing for Jordan for 2000, and relationships subsequently soured to the point that Jarno's second place in the European Grand Prix was dismissed by Prost as 'lucky'.

Trulli has thus far been a bit-part player and now he has been handed a leading role. It will be interesting to see whether the Italian has what it takes to be a star.
