The future of Justin Wilson

Minardi boss Paul Stoddart was quoted yesterday as saying that Justin Wilson has a future in Formula 1 but not with Minardi but now the Australian says that this does not mean that Wilson actually has a deal with another team.

"He has done enough in his first year to be in F1 next year," said Stoddart. "It is not likely to be with me but at the moment no deals are done and I don't want to say any more because I don't want to screw up the deal that is being discussed."

There is a speculation that Wilson could move in at Jaguar alongside Mark Webber. This makes a certain amount of sense as this would allow Stoddart to negotiate a better deal with Jaguar Racing's sister company Cosworth over the supply of engines in 2004. At the moment however this all remains speculation.
