F1 for Wheldon?

Dan Wheldon is doing very well at the moment in the Indy Racing League but the young British driver is still keen on breaking into Formula 1 and at the weekend Wheldon's manager Julian Jakoby was busy chatting to teams in Barcelona to see what jobs might be available. Wheldon is a big favourite with Honda in the United States and with the Japanese firm rumoured to be stopping its IRL programme, it could be that Wheldon may try to get into F1. BAR will almost certainly have a vacancy as Jenson Button will leave to join Williams and the team needs a replacement. Several other drivers are already talking to the team about deals.
