The topic I opened earlier (due to this picture: http://www.ophidian.dj/uploads/piquetmclaren1990f1hond.jpg ) has inspired me to open one in which we can share pictures, videos and stories about silly season moves and tests of F1 drivers with unlikely or unexpected teams. I find it really interesting to see which drivers were considered for which jobs and the reasons it didn’t happen.
Some questions I can think of right now:
- I think many of us have seen videos on youtube of Senna’s early tests for McLaren and Williams, but I also heard a rumor in ’92 I think that he was talking to Benetton for the ’93 season. Is there any truth to that?
- After his rather sensational debut for Tyrrell Jean Alesi signed 3 contracts for the ’91 season: Tyrrell, Williams and Ferrari. We all know how it played out… But did he in fact ever test for Williams and are there pictures of it?
Please share if you have answers or anything else good :)
