Retro Silly Season

I've been reading the 'Almost Moves' thread on Autosport Forum and I found some interesting things.

But still I have some questions about some possible driver transfers:

1, Barrichello had an offer in 1992 from an F1 team.
Does anyone know which was that? And also what teams he talked to about a potential debut for 1993?
(I know about Tyrrell, and obviously Jordan)

2, What was Modena's other options for 1992?

3, Did Mauricio Gugelmin ever had a chance to move to a top team, and what other offers he had in 1992 instead of Jordan?

4, Eddie Irvine was interesting for many F1 teams at the end of 1993. One was Jordan. But which were the others?

But to not jusk ask here's some i came across:
1, Ivan Capelli, after he gave his seat to the pay driver Wendlinger at March, was mentioned to replace Gianni Morbidelli at Minardi, because the italian left to replace the sacked Prost.

2, Also Capelli got an offer from Briatore to replace the injured Nannini at Benetton

3, Prost was in talks with Jordan for 1992 seat

4, Erik Comas and Bertrand Gachot were a candidate to replace Hakkinen at Lotus.

5, Pierluigi Martini was in line for March in 1993.

6, Hill got a two-year offer from Ligier for 1993, but instead choosed to wait if he can have a chance at Williams.

Martin Brundle was offered a Lotus seat for 1985
Arnoux was also a possibility for Lotus in 1983 when they had Renault engines

Capelli and Cheever were on the initial 1986 entry list for Osella and Tyrrell respectively, before the seats went to Ghinzani and Streiff

Cheever was also linked with Benetton.
And If Streiff couldn't have the Tyrrell seat he would be at Minardi. Rothengatter and Dumfries were linked with Tyrrell as well.

Welcome to the forum.

In 93(?) Ron Denis apparently offered Schumi and seat.

Schumi had a contract to Sauber as well for 1993.
And Mr Benetton said at the begin of '92 that Prost comes to his team, Schumacher moves to Ferrari to replace Alesi and the frenchman is moving to Jordan.
I think that Dennis talk was for a '94 seat.

Thanks for welcoming!

Brundle actually signed a contract with Williams for 93, before Frank decided instead to go with Hill. Just imagine how different it would have been with Martin in a Williams and Damon in a Ligier

But I belive they signed something with Hakkinen as well. But because they were late on the entry and they needed every team to accept a petition or something that they can race in the season. And Lotus boss Peter Collins said he only accept it if they don't race Hakkinen.
(Sorry for bad english)

But what would be if Mansell decides not to return in 1991 from his retirement?
Boutsen could have stayed. But I read an interview on GrandPrix.com with Ivan Capelli where he says he has talks with Frank Williams. Or maybe a comeback for Piquet?

Doubt they would have kept Boutsen, he was never really felt part of the team. Williams really wanted a number 1 driver in the team again, which is why they caved in to Mansell’s demands. I think they were rumours of Senna going there. Of course they did have an option on Alesi, before Jean decided to go with Ferrari. That was after Nannini was announced as a Ferrari driver, before contract talks broke down

Nannini was about to sign for Ferrari but he wanted a two-year contract and Ferrari was only willing to give him one. So he signed with Benetton. And that was the moment when they approached Alesi who was signed by Williams.
