Shnaider eyes Canadian and Russian lineup

Jordan-Midland owner Alex Shnaider's ideal grand prix driver lineup would be a Canadian and a Russian. The Toronto based billionaire, who was born in Russia but became a naturalized Canadian, reportedly met with French Canadian Champ Car driver Andrew Ranger, 18, in Montreal.

He told the 'Canadian Press' agency that Midland's door will be 'open' to all nationalities. But, asked about the potential Canadian-Russian combo, Shnaider replied: ''It would be great to have.''

He also defended his team amid criticism it is not spending enough money to be deemed a serious Paddock player. ''We bought Jordan a year early,'' Alex told CP, ''in order to learn everything for 2006.''
