Kiesa may eye Champ Cars

(GMM) Nicolas Kiesa is unlikely to return to Formula One next year with Minardi. The Dane, who had a fleeting grand prix flirt in 2003 following Justin Wilson's move from Minardi to Jaguar, was thought to have found enough sponsorship to renew the affection of owner Paul Stoddart. But a source at the Italian team now says the Minardi principal will almost certainly make a selection for 2005 'from among the list of drivers present at (the recent) Misano (test).' Kiesa did not test a black car in Italy. The Faenza-based source also advised media publications to ignore the tips of enthusiastic driver-management representatives. ''Anything that may be said,'' he added, ''falls into the realm of speculation.' Now will he take what sponsor money he does have and turn to Champ Car?
