Vern Schuppan 1973 BRM

this wasnt an almost move - Schuppan had signed for BRM in 1973 as 'cub' driver, whatever that was meant to be, only to have the seat pulled from under him when Lauda signed to drive the third car with his invisible sponsorship. Schuppan did drive for the team at the Race of Champions after Regazzoni was sidelined with burns after his S.A Gp shunt.

In his autobiography Innes said that he had offers from BRM for both 1960 and 1962. He turned down the first offer because he felt that staying with Lotus was the better bet, and the second because he had already verbally agreed to join BRP and didn't want to go back on his word.

One question. Did Patrick Tambay have opportunities to drive in formula 1 for 1980 ?

Is there any truth to the rumor that Bernie almost got Piquet to come back just after Imola 1994?

Last week's Autosport said that Renault couldn't get Pironi out of his Tyrrell contract for 1979, so gave Arnoux the second drive.

I am not sure, I read a wild story on another forum about Nelson and Bernie.

 

Something along the lines of that Nelson played a bit of a hoax on Bernie and led him along. I never got confirmation if it was true or not.
