Jacques Villeneuve was rumoured to take the Sauber seat in the last few races of the season in 1995 to gain experience.

Franchitti was considered for the second Jaguar seat alongside Irvine in 2001. And de Ferran was linked to a Ligier seat in 95. Also Paul Tracy came close to a Benetton seat in the mid 90s

Jonathan Palmer to partner Prost at Mclaren in 1987.
Eventually they choose Johansson, who had a great season at Ferrari.
But I would have watched what Palmer could do in a Mclaren

Palmer was actually briefly on the 1990 entry list for McLaren, until McLaren made Senna apologise to the FIA

David Brabham agreed to replace Olivier Grouillard at Tyrrell in the 1992 Australian Grand Prix. But Elf, what was sponsoring Tyrrell didn't want the deal.

Eric van de Poele also was in contention for the seat in 1993. But they opted to sign Katayama instead to get Yamaha engines for free.

That was that Japanese driver, Akira something I think, who was going to drive for Brabham in 1992, but was refused a superlicence, so they gave the drive to Miss Amati

Also Pedro Chaves was in line for a March drive for 1992, but missed out I think due to funding

When Larini was fired by Sauber midway through 97, they asked Brundle to take his place, but Martin turned it down, as he didnít think the car was competitive enough

Riccardo Patrese was talking with Ligier,Sauber and Mclaren for a seat in 1994. Also, he was about to join Williams in 1995, but Senna's accident changed his mind.

When Mclaren was with Peugeot engines, the french company wanted their drivers to get a seat. Namingly Yannick Dalmas or Philippe Alliot.

Blundell agreed to race for Sauber in 1996.
A year before he was close to Simtek.

Johnny Herbert has been linked to many teams after his second Benetton stint. Jordan, Ligier, Tyrrell and even Mclaren (and CART) was a possibility. He ended up at Sauber.

Actually Patrese was going to replace Senna with immediate effect after Ayrtonís death, but then decided against it

And Prost was also linked to a McLaren seat for 94, although the fact he was still technically under contract with Williams counted against that happening

Well we know what the Doctor's limit was, as showed when Alesi turned up in a Tyrrell and blew him away first race!

Indeed, Palmer ever the realist saw that and retired at the end of the season.

Williams were interested in Caffi for 1989.
Also he could have raced at Benetton in 1990 if Piquet decided to retire at the end of 1989.

Also Patrese would have raced at Scuderia Italia if Williams signs Alboreto for '89.
