Marques for MF1 Racing?

The rumours suggesting that Nicky Pastorelli's job as the third driver may be under threat because of sponsorship problems seems to explain Tarso Marques's recent remarks about getting a Formula 1 drive. The Marques deal is believed to be close to completion and it is possible that it will include not only a testing deal for 2006 but also a racing deal for 2007. If this is the case, Marques must have found the support of a major sponsor but there is currently no clue as to who that could be.

MF1 Racing has confirmed, incidentally, that Fabrizio del Monte will test for the team next week.
