Bowlby on the move
The possible F1 opportunities are mostly in the midfield and could include Toyota, Jaguar Racing, Jordan Grand Prix and Arrows. An announcement is expected shortly to throw some light on the mystery.
It is worth noting that, according to the Arrows team, Mike Coughlan lost his recent High Court action to establish whether or not he can leave Arrows to join McLaren. The court apparently upheld Arrows's contract but this does not mean much in that it is pointless for Arrows to try to make Coughlan work if he does not want to. The procedure now will be that a settlement will be found and then Coughlan will have to sit out a period of sixth months of what is called "gardening leave" - which he has already begun.
