Salo to join Tyrrell
Before making its decision, Tyrrell tested Salo alongside British Touring Car Champion and former F1 man Gabriele Tarquini; and ex-Williams test driver Emmanuel Collard. The team also had talks with Christian Fittipaldi, Erik Comas and Karl Wendlinger. Tarquini is expected to stay in touring car racing with Alfa Romeo, but Collard is still looking for an F1 ride. The former World Karting Champion has around 40OOkm of testing for Williams under his belt and is thus an attractive proposition for some of F1's smaller teams - if he can find a budget. His name has been linked with Larrousse and with Pacific.
