Lehto was imo better than Wingbender but they were close. Benetton obvs thought the same in comparimg how Schu had also fared against the Austrian when they tested the Finn late in '93 and he blew the other contenders away.
If he hadn't have been injured JJ would have had a good 2-3 years at Enstone and if that went well I could envisage him joining Ferrari, wh he tested for at the end of the 80's.

Presumably Pryce would have been on that list had he not perished. Although I believe he was more heavily linked to Lotus to partner Andretti.

Button's contract may well have become irrelevant after Montoya pulled that move on Schu at Interlagos. Frank and Patrick were ecstatic!

Ronnie Peterson apparently signed or came close to a contract with Shadow in 75

If Jack Brabham didn't let Denny Hulme go to Mclaren for 1968, the second Mclaren would be driven by Jean-Pierre Jaussaud. Also he had offers from Matra and BRM(one-off drives) and talked with Honda to partner Surtees.

Didn't he do a race or 2, or was it '81 when he drove for them?

It was 81 he drove for them. In 1980 they only ran one for Cheever in the end

Damon Hill wanted to retire after the 1999 British Grand Prix. So Eddie Jordan agreed with Mika Salo to replace the 1996 champion from Germany onwards.
However some guy called Michael Schumacher broke his leg in a Ferrari..

Moreno was considered to replace the injured Zanardi at Monza in 93

I thought his decent performance at the British GP gave him a bit more encouragement to complete the season. Although his head clearly wasn't in it by Japan

Barrichello revealed in the Beyond the Grid Podcast that McLaren approached him to partner Lewis in 2010, but by then he had already signed for Williams. He also was offered a seat at Benetton alongside Alesi for 96, but Berger’s move scuppered it

In the most recent Beyond the Grid podcast with Mark Blundell, he mentions he was close to a deal with Arrows in 1994. But some sponsorship deal fell trough, so he went to Tyrrell instead.
