Albers' to get Jan. teammate
A F1 teammate for Minardi rookie Christijan Albers will be named early next year, Paul Stoddart said. The team owner and principal, sitting next to the 25-year-old Dutch star, revealed at a media conference in Amsterdam (the Netherlands) that he is not yet decided on Albers' teammate, from a final list of seven.
He said: "The name will be unveiled in January." Hungarian incumbent Zsolt Baumgartner is thought favourite, but Patrick Friesacher, Tiago Monteiro, Nicolas Kiesa, Pastor Maldonado and Robert Doornbos all ran for the Faenza-based squad recently at Misano.
Stoddart said in Holland: "Minardi has ambitious plans (for 2005). It is very gratifying to see a number of Dutch companies getting behind a talented young driver in order to help him take that final step to the highest level of motor racing."
