For Wendlinger read Boullion or Collard
As we were closing for press, no-one seemed to know which of the three was the most likely; but Benetton had announced that it was planning a press conference on Wednesday in Monaco, involving Collard. This might be the long-overdue announcement that Collard is the team's test driver, but it is more likely that Flavio Briatore will be telling the world that Emmanuel is being loaned (at a price, of course) to Sauber for the rest of the season.
If this is the case, the news will spark a rush of drivers to Benetton eager to give their sponsorship money to Briatore in exchange for a chance to drive one of the top F1 cars at the moment.
