Dan Wheldon and BMW

As we suggested a month ago Dan Wheldon had been busy trying to get into F1 and there are reports from America - from the extremely well-connected journalist Robin Miller that Wheldon is about to sign an F1 deal that will see him testing in 2006 and racing in 2007. If this is the case the most likely destination for Wheldon is the new BMW team as Wheldon is denying a deal with the other likely option Williams.

Wheldon won this year's Indianapolis 500 and the IRL title but has never made a secret of his desire to be in F1 and his option to continue with Andretti Green Racing expires on Tuesday.

One way of the other Wheldon seems to be bound for Europe.
