McLaren to announce drivers in Hungary?

We hear that the McLaren team will announce its 2004 driver line-up in Hungary and all the signs are that the team will retain both Kimi Raikkonen and David Coulthard, despite lengthy talks in recent days with Juan Pablo Montoya. The team is also expected to name test drivers but there are still suggestions that Alexander Wurz wants to get back into racing and has been talking to other teams, notably BAR. Wurz drove for Benetton when it was being run by BAR boss David Richards and he is a fan of the Austrian although he says that there is no rush to decide on drivers and is talking to a number of other drivers in addition to Jacques Villeneuve and Wurz. Takuma Sato, the team's test driver, is also in the picture at BAR.
