Will McLaren release Wurz?

Jaguar Racing has made an offer to sign Alexander Wurz but it is still not clear whether McLaren will let the Austrian go as his knowledge of the McLaren-Mercedes Benz testing programs is very valuable and the team is keen to keep hold of him. Wurz has been a test driver for the last two seasons and needs to be back in races if he is to make a good career in F1 in the future.

The latest word in F1 circles is that McLaren is asking for around $1.5m from Jaguar in order for them to release Alex.
