Mexican Champ Car competitor Mario Dominguez has turned down the chance to be Jordan's reserve driver this season.
Dominguez may be in F1 in 2006
But it appears that the 29-year-old could still race for the Formula One team when they become Midland in 2006.
"I have signed a letter of intent to drive for Midland Jordan in 2006," Dominguez told autoracing1.com website.
"I was offered a deal to be the Friday driver for 2005, but I had to turn it down because I have a Champ Car deal for 2005 and I intend to honour it."
Russian-born Canadian businessman Alex Shnaider bought the Jordan team in January.
