Briatore was seen in with Wolffin and Lauda in Azerbaijan.
Rumours have Briatore looking for new drive for Alonso for next year and both Ferrari and McLaren are in his sights. They are the two teams that are on top of the game at the moment. Red Bull and Force India can excel from time to time, but neither is at the front consistently enough at present to win the title
Wonder if either Hamilton or Vettel have clauses in their contracts to veto co-drives for the team. It would be safe guess that both would rather keep their current co-drivers.
