Jos at Minardi - don't hold your breath
So what will Minardi be announcing? It seems almost certain that the announcement will be about a driver as no teams are currently announcing new sponsorship deals. The speculation as to who it will be is rampant and with so many drivers on the market in F1 at the moment it could be one of perhaps 15 drivers. Among the names that could be announced are British driver Justin Wilson, Americans Bryan Herta and Townsend Bell, Italian Giorgio Pantano, Belgium's David Saelens, Verstappen, Pedro de la Rosa, Felipe Massa, Enrique Bernoldi or Tomas Enge.
Minardi boss Paul Stoddart is again playing his cards very close to his chest.
