Speculation about BMW drivers

While Jacques Villeneuve remains confident that he will hold on to one of the two BMW drives next year, there are rumours in F1 circles that Alexander Wurz may be pushing hard for the job. The McLaren test drivers has tried several times to restart his racing career on a full-time basis, including earlier this year when he stood in for the injured Juan Pablo Montoya. The Austrian is hugely experienced as a tester and would be a big asset to the BMW team as it tries to get Sauber up to speed. This might create some legal questions.

There is also speculation, incidentally, that Anthony Davidson is on the short list for a job at BMW.
