Interesting times. First they funded a driver in the team, then went on to buy the team outright.

Klien or Pantano?

Minardi were often one of the leading teams at testimg our drivers with the biggest and fastest wallet.

Pantano was a strange case.

Rubbish in 2004 but then showed his talent after he was dropped from F1. Did he deserve a second shot? Maybe.

Problem is only 10 teams on the grid when he won the title, and 2008-09 we only saw 2 driver changes(Vettel replaces the retiring DC at RBR and Buemi takes Vettel's place at STR, although Senna came close to getting the Brawn drive in place of Rubinho). So Pantano was left to do some Megane racing. A season later when the new teams came in, it might have been a different story

Indeed! I recall his part F3000 season with GA the previous year was supported by the same sponsor/s that was supposed to fund the Lambo effort?
I do wonder if the real reason he withdrew from 3000 was because the money wasn't there in the first place!

I thought Apicella was going to get one of the drives but they signed EvdP instead alongside Larini. Suspect Eric brought a bit of much needed sponsorship from Leaseplan!

I think your favourite Marco ended up as test or reserve driver in the end

"For 1985 Lotus made me an offer, and I really wanted to go. Ken had given me my chance, but he hadn’t got a turbo engine, or a sponsor – the car just had Tyrrell written down the side. Ken had an option on me which he had to exercise by November 30, and he wouldn’t let me know what he wanted to do."

Interesting.....so Lotus made an offer to Brundle earlier than to Senna? Or they wanted Brundle to replace De Angelis and go with a Senna-Brundle duo?

Wasn't Mauro Baldi supposed to drive for them? Or he only did the testing?

Baldi definitely did most of the testing for them and I think was linked to a return with them

About the Brundle to Lotus offer, I would hazard a guess they would have him alongside Senna. After all Lotus did sign Senna for 84, but JPS blocked it, as it would have meant dropping Mansell and they insisted having a Brit in the team. So having got Senna onboard for 85, I would say Lotus tried to get the Brit Brundle to keep JPS happy. And of course for 86 they signed a Brit, Warwick, with help from Renault, only for Senna to veto it and so they bought Dumfries another Brit. And then it was all change for 87, with Camel being the title sponsor and Honda insisting they had a Japanese driver in Nakajima

No, it wasn't as complicated as that. Brundle & Lotus were both from Norfolk, they were probably related!
