The latest whisper in the Formula 1 paddock on Saturday morning is that Sauber will do a deal with McLaren to get Alexander Wurz into the second car to replace Jacques Villeneuve. Speculation has been rife in recent days that Villeneuve will be replaced because of poor performance this year. Peter Sauber is by nature conservative and we would not expect any immediate action but the pressure for change will increase if Villeneuve continues to be overshadowed by Felipe Massa. The obvious answer to the critics from Villeneuve would be some good times to stop the talk but until that happens the speculation is going to continue.
