Christian Fittipaldi had an offer for 1995 but he rejected it to race in IndyCars.
He has been mentioned to Mclaren before and was talking with Sauber and Tyrrell.
He could have achieved much more in F1

There’s been a few who haven’t raced in F1 who have come close to doing that

Rob Wilson almost got a Tyrrell drive in the 81 Belgian GP, depending on whether or not Alboreto could get sponsorship for the drive. He did, so Wilson missed out

John Nielsen missed out on a Tyrrell drive in 85 replacing the late Stefan Belloff due to lack of funding

Marco Greco was supposed to drive for Eurobrun in 1990, but missed out

Dave Coyne was a strong contender to replace the imprisoned Gachot at Jordan for the 1991 Belgian GP (as was Stefan Johansson), but EJ was convinced by Merc to take Schumi

Giuseppe Bugatti was going to drive for Fondmetal at the 92 Portuguese GP, but the team pulled out of F1

Finally Pacific tried to get their test driver Oliver Gavin into a race seat for the 1995 Australian GP, but was refused a superlicence despite being British F3 champion. Yet the FIA had no problem with the same team earlier running Giovanni Lavaggi and Jean-Denis Deletraz, both drivers with more money than talent. Go figure...

Gabriele Tarquini had an offer from Lotus for 1991.
The seat eventually went to someone called Mika Hakkinen.

Patrese came close to going to Ferrari for 1982 before they decided to stick with Pironi

Stefan Johansson was originally planned to do the final two races for March in 82

I'm wondering if Hill didn't get the Williams seat nor the Ligier one, where would he ended up?
Lotus maybe..or even Tyrrell maybe Jordan, but I couldn't find anything about it

Back to Rob Wilson, he was approached by Fittipaldi as well in '81 to replace Emmo

Oh yeah, and he was mentioned to Sauber before 2014.
I like him, he has real passion for racing.

I suspect he would have continued as test driver. He didn't have money to buy a ride. Williams saved his career and also nearly ended it.

No-one has mentioned Herbert. Although Benetton/Peter Collins were looking after him, before the Brands 3000 shunt he was being heavily courted by Frank Williams and apparently Ferrari were also keen.
So Impey may have had a difficult choice at the end of that year had he not been hurt.
Would Ferrari have signed 2 Brits for 1989??
If he had joined Williams, pres Boutsen would have gone, although he had only just joined them for the 88 season.

One of you asked about Gugelmin. Senna tried to get him in as his no.2 at Lotus for 1986 but Lotus wanted soneone more experienced for the other seat. This is partly why he ended up in 3000 with the JPS money. I don't recall him ever being seriously considered for a top drive whilst he was with March.

Frentzen could have gone to Benetton in 1996 alongside Bartichello but in the end Briatore took the Ferrari guys as they were bigger names at the time and he must have thought the 96 car could allow those 2 to challenge Hill in a Wiiliams!

Senna only suggested Gugelmin to Lotus after he vetoed Del Boy.

Mauro Baldi tested the Lambo car in the winter of 1990/91 and apparently came close to making a comeback with that team

Roberto Moreno could have replaced Alex Zanardi at Lotus in mid 1993

Also Ron Dennis tried to buy out Herbert from the Lotus contract to race at Mclaren in 1994.

Brundle had on offer from Jordan in 1994. That would left Irvine out in the cold. Would he have a seat in anywhere else?
