sup cheetah !

massa with ferrari ?
..the 2nd driver seat is not an attractive seat as long as MS is in ferrari ..
ferrari offered Button a seat as their 2nd Driver ...
BMW with Villeneuve sounds interesting ...but i think Button is more suited to drive the BMW ..

as far as NK goes ... A-1 GP team india hiring for their pit crew ...

I don't think much of the driver lineup is going to change except for BMW team, Massa will be joined by Heidfeld and Villeneuve will be out I guess.
Rubens will stay at Ferrari and Button will move to Williams.

Turbo, Villeneuve is not going to BMW. Its just that Sauber is being acquired by BMW and being renamed as BMW. Thus Villeneuve just retains his seat in Sauber.

Button is going to Williams but it is not sure if they will be able to keep their BMW engine supplies next year.

i know ..its team BMW Sauber ..i dbout jacques will have a seat with BMW/sauber..
i thought williams has a contract with BMW till 2007 ..correct me if i am wrong ...
Nothing has been signed yet ... Button has been offered a seat in Ferrari ..
- Irvine had lots to say about that btw ... -
there is a strong chance of barri going to BAR if Button leaves for ferrari ...

BMW will be crazy to have JV drive for them. Even if they have a contract, they should just pay him the money and ask him to relax.

NK claims that he has more sponsors lined up for next year. So money is not a problem. My feeling is they will keep NK for the money and hire the second driver based purely on skill.

Also expect Heikki Kovalanen to replace Fisi in Renault.

Just came in.....

Sauber confirms Massa will be leaving them for 2006 and probably moving to Ferrari
http://www.planet-f1.com/news/story_20509.shtml

Simultaneously there is speculation that Barrichello has signed a contract with BAR

Fisi's deal is secure with Renault for 2006, so no changes in Renault's driver lineup.

I dont think Button will move to Williams esp. with the performances that they are putting up and one more thing is that WIlliams is going to be supplied wiith engines by Cosworth..
Massa moving to Ferrari is almost certain, I dont think he will stay with a team that is being taken over by williams...and he has supported by Ferrari from the beginning of his career.

If Rubens moves on, it wull surely be Massa going to Ferrari since he has been a test driver for them a few seasons ago. Button would want to stay put at BAR but all that depends on his Williams contract though.

About Kimi I had read a piece of news about Kimi stating that "If I dont not get the reliability I want ans upport from the team I may consider other teams even though I have a contract with Mclaren for 2006"

NKs survival in F1 will be on the amount of moolah he can rake in though I feel a seat at Red Bull would do wonders for him. Red Bull have shown good potential in their first year itself
