Will Taku join Midland in 2006?

If rumours come true, Japanese driver Takuma Sato could be coming home to drive for the team that gave him his big break in Formula One.

Despite being powered by Japanese Toyota engines in 2006, Midland F1 are looking to give the BAR Honda driver a race seat to potentially partner current Minardi driver Christijan Albers.

Colin Kolles said "We are very interested in Takuma. We talked about the issue with Toyota and they are happy."

The current BAR driver has had an inconsistent season with the team this year so much so that he is being replaced by Rubens Barrichello, despite his links with the teams engine manufacturer. Takuma however would be a most welcome driver with Midland. His rookie year with Jordan started slowly but a fifth place at the Japanese Grand Prix cemented him as a talent for the future.

Rumours suggest that there have been talks with a number of other drivers including the current Jordan drivers along with the likes of Anthony Davidson who tested for the team earlier in the year.
