JANUARY 12, 1998
Muller confirmed as Sauber tester
Jorg replaces Argentina's Norberto Fontana, who has been Sauber's test driver since the start of 1995. Fontana did not impress the team last year when he stood in for the injured Gianni Morbidelli. Fontana is understood to be talking to Tyrrell about a possible drive for 1998 although there seems to be only a slim chance of a deal as Jos Verstappen remains the favorite to retain his seat in the coming year.
