Hideki Noda,Emanuele Naspetti,Alex Zanardi,
Gianni Morbidelli,Allan McNish,Andrea Montermini,Roberto Moreno,Mauricio Gugelmin,Christian Fittipaldi,Gil De Ferran,Paulo Carcasci and Pedro Lamy

Also for Christian Fittipaldi in 1995:
Negotiations with Mclaren,Tyrrell,Jordan,Sauber and Arrows. But as he didn't want to stay in a low-midfield team, he left for CART

Lauda almost made a u turn on his decision to retire at the end of 1985 when he was offered a big money move to Brabham for 86. When you realise how bad the BT55, he was probably relieved he stuck to his original decision

Bernie tried to sign Hunt as well. I think in '82.

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?
May I ask what the purpose of this thread is?

If it is to try and obtain answers to the questions in the original post - have they been answered?

Or is it just to list every possible seat a driver may or may not have been offered?

Actually both. I'm interested in those questions.
But also I would like to share the articles I came across.
For some reason I really like the driver transfers in F1.
That's one of my favourite part of it.

After being dumped by McLaren at the end of 83, Watson was linked to Tyrrell and actually came close to getting the second Brabham drive, but Piquet refused him and Senna and his own choice of Moreno failed, as Parmalat wanted an Italian driver, hence why they signed up Teo, with Corrado taking his place when he was racing in Indycars

Wattie was actually supposed to make a comeback in 85 with Tolemann, alongside Johansson, but due to a lack of tyre contract, it never happened.

Penske was planning to run a two-car team with Watson and Ronnie Peterson.

The Penske plan was for 1977, I forgot to write that

Ligier was planning to run a Brundle-Irvine duo for 1996.
In the end they had Panis and Diniz.

Tyrrell made an offer for Capelli in 1991. Also the team was about to sign Mika Salo, but Ken Tyrrell found out he was drunk.

Panis talked to Ligier,Tyrrell and Benetton after he won F3000. There were rumours he would take over the Benetton from Patrese in the last two races in 1993.
In the end he ended up at Ligier.

Hunt the Shunt said during the commentary for the 1990 Japanese GP, that it was a shame Del Boy had already committed himself to WSC for 91, as he could have taken the seat at Benetton. Does make you think
