Ken Tyrrell told the press he wanted a Brit in his car for 84 and listed Brundle, Palmer and Watson as the drivers he was considering

Never heard that before?

Presumably with a view to 1983?

What was the source for that out of interest?

Back in the day everybody was going to drive for everybody else.
I'm sure the motor magazines of the day made most of it up to get suckers to buy their magazines.
Worked for me I bought plenty of motor mags to keep up with the goss..

This is indeed true, I have a stash of old bike racing magazines from the early 90's and I would say three quarters of the gossip type news in them is wrong and nothing came of it, you cold see why there was the story but most of it was made up!!

Mexican Indycar Josele Garza was linked to Minardi for both 87 and 88. A little known fact is he did compete in F1, when he drove a Brabham during one of the practice sessions at the 86 Mexican GP. Long before Friday drivers became a thing

Seem to recall he had been mentioned as a possible for the Brabham no.2 around that time too.

I think 50% of the drivers at F2/F3000/F3 and Indycar level got linked to Brabham at some point or another during their latter days.

Chris Amon was all set to join Marc for 73, before Jarier and his backers put paid to that

Just read, Nick Fry said Hamilton was negotiating with Honda to make his F1 debut with the Japanese manufacturer in 2007.
But didn"t Button and Barrichello have long-term contracts?

Prost was offered a third McLaren seat for the 79 US GP, but felt it was of little importance for his first full season in 1980.

Hamilton also turned down DLR’s McLaren seat at the 2006 Brazilian GP

There was talk of Piquet and Boutsen doing a swap for 88, i.e. Boutsen to Williams and Piquet to Benetton. Both eventually happened...

Thomas Kaiser certainly was, IIRC.

In 2012 Red Bull(Mr Marko) tried to put either Ricciardo or Vergne into Caterham. As they couldn't manage it, they put both of them into Toro and as a result Alguersuari had to leave.
Meanwhile Buemi was a candidate for Williams.
