Theunser should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
In 1982 Williams approached Gilles Villeneuve.
He would only be 70 today.

McLaren also made an offer to him for 82. In the 81 Canadian GP, they used pitboards to communicate a possible deal between the two

After BMS pulled out at the end of 93, their drivers Alboreto and Badoer both were contenders for the second Benetton seat for 94. In the end they BMS's merger with Minardi meant they went there, Alboreto as race driver, Badoer as test driver

Andrea Montermini tested a Larrousse pre-1992, and was expected to go there, but it didn't happen.

I always felt Gilles would have won the '83 title cauae the C2b was arguably the best car, aftet all it won the constructors.
But logically he would have left Ferrari at the end of '82 after getting 'effed over' so the Mclaren deal is more than likely true.
He would have been in prime position for the Tag engine programme....
Prost may never have been signed as Gilles would have partnered Lauda.

Red Bull thought they had a deal to buy Jordan the year before they bought Minardi and would have started 'Torro Rosso' in 2004 with Bernoldi and the winner of their American driver search of 2002 Paul Edwards. Scott Speed who finished runner up in the driver search would have been test driver.

Prost only signed for McLaren after being fired by Renault and the fact Wattie was still working out a contract with Macca. So yes it’s logical to suggest Prost wouldn’t have gone there with Gilles already there

Prost was talking to Ferrari first, after he was sacked by Renault. But they kept Arnoux and the recently signed Alboreto.

How did that work out for them?

If they seriously had the chance to sign Prost for '84 they would have fared much better than they did. No disrespect to the late Michele but he wasn't in Le Prof's league but woukd have mafe a great back up man.
However at the time Alboreto was as hot a property as anyone else I guess.
