Wurz Claims He Is Brawn 3rd Driver NOT Davidson
Alexander Wurz, the well spoken Austrian driver, has told German motorsport presses that he is indeed the 3rd driver (i.e. backup) for the Brawn GP team continuing his role from Honda.
Wurz has been the subject of some rumour with newspapers and magazines claiming that Super Aguri refugee, and former Honda test driver Anthony Davidson was racing for the team, and would deputise.
Davidson has been seen at both races so far, but claims it is only within his role as a commentator for BBC 5Live radio.
Wurz is sure his position is stll valid.
“I am the third driver.” He told Sport Bild “If one of the drivers cannot for any reason drive, I will substitute him,”
“In addition I am a sort of connection between the drivers and the team,” said Wurz.
