The roundabout continues...

The carousel of rumors about who will drive for Arrows in Hungary continues with the latest idea to surface being that Fernando Alonso, who was being tipped as a possible Minardi driver, being mentioned as a possible signing at Arrows for the rest of the year. This would probably involve Alonso's management (which is either Renault or Flavio Briatore or possibly both) paying some money to the team. It would be a good investment in that it would give the Spaniard some more F1 mileage.

The mystery remains of who will drive for Minardi in place of Alex Yoong with Alonso having moved back into the frame when it became clear that Justin Wilson could not fit into the car. If Alonso is given the choice between Minardi and Arrows it is logical that he would chose to the latter as the car is more competitive and there would be less danger of him being shown up by his team mate. If Alonso was with Minardi it would put him into competition with another Briatore/Renault contractee Mark Webber.

We expect part of the puzzle to be solved tomorrow...
