I highly doubt that. One was from Kings Lynn, the other was nearer Norwich. I think my theory could hold some weight here

Would Senna have wanted Brundle in the other car? If he vetoed Warwick because it would stretch resources, surely he knew more about Martin's potential to create the same sort of issue.

He didn't mind having Elio in the car for 85, but that was before he realised Lotus couldn't run two cars effectively

There were quite a few linked to the second Jordan seat for 2004, Verstappen, McNish, Frentzen, Firman, Lyons, Wilson.

Pedro Lamy got linked to Sauber during a succesful F3000 campaign.
"While Lamy, ’tis said, is courted by Sauber"
https://www.motorsportmagazine.com/a...ing-the-strain

Also he was in talks with many teams for 1995. He tested a Sauber, a Tyrrell, an Arrows, talked to Pacific and Forti and yet he ended up replacing Martini mid-season at Minardi.

Also he tested for Sauber during 1997 as of the chart I posted earlier.

If i recall Lamy was managed by one of the original AMG partners Domingos Piedade?
So the Sauber link makes sense even if they went for Frentzen instead.

Éric Bernard was linked to join Ligier-Renault for 1992, and staying at Larrousse was also possible, before his accident in Suzuka happened.
(You can find the part in the "Présentation de l'épreuve" section)
Whoever can speak french this site worth checking.

So that would likely have been the '89 DAMS 3000 line up once again? Or was he ahead of Comas?

Bernard has as much promise as Alesi but never got the same breaks. Ditto Comas.

Well, Boutsen had a contract, so I assume it's for Comas(who I belive also had a contract, but I'll check it and post it later). The rumours of Prost joining Ligier were already starting by then as well.

Actually the Alesi-Comas-Bernard trio is amongst my favourite.
Alesi. It's just so fun and enjoyable to watch him drive a car. The way he did it was so natural, no people could learn it.
Bernard lost a bit of momentum when his accident happened in Japan, I guess he never recovered entirely.
Comas was just unlucky. He was beating Boutsen in 1992, but couldn't agree on a deal with the team for '93, so he had to opt for Larrousse. Had he stayed at Ligier he might have grabbed some podiums, and his career could have gone in a different way.

But It's just one of the many generation of drivers who didn't fulfill their potential.

Yeah, this article mentions that both Comas and Boutsen had some kind of contract for 1992. Both as we see now with the Perez-case, that doesn't mean anything.

Chris Amon was asked to replace the injured JYS at Matra for the 68 Monaco GP, but Ferrari wouldn’t let him go. Typical Amon luck when you saw what Servoz Gavin did in that GP

I recall he dropped out of the running for the Pacific seat when he told Keith Wiggins that he was testing for a better team (Tyrrell), obviously that didn’t go down too well with Keith!

Lamy did very well to be back in F1 at all after that big crash he had at Silverstone. For me he was one of those drivers he didn’t do much wrong and could have had a longer career

Too many careers ended in 1994...

Indeed and that was also the year we had the dreaded refuelling back, which would ruin the racing for the next 15 years
