BTW who is BAR going to throw out.I bet it must be Sato that is if they manage to retain Button.But the question is who will be the NO 2 driver then.Leaving a Ferrari No 2 spot to become a no 2 at BAR will be big mistake.
Also Massa is a good driver as he has shown by keeping Villevnue behind him.

IMO (and I don't mean to start a fight), this is merely a political move as Massa's representative (agent) is Jean Todt's son. I haven't seen Massa doing much that he would really be considered as the next frontman for quite possibly the biggest success story in F1 history.

We heard the same talk when Eddie Loudmouth Irvine moved out of Ferrari. We know where he ended up....

Schumacher's on a different plane altogether - a change of cars wont help the others.

Like merve said, it'll be Felipe Massa. The rumours have been that...
1) Barrichello opted to leave Ferrari although Ferrari wanted to renew Barrichello's contract
2) No other top drivers wanted to play second fiddle to Schumi, which was why Ferrari had to settle for Massa.

he's going to be in much better positions than before, which is very very good.

Guys the question now is...will Barrichello play 2nd if Button remains in BAR itself...and will he have the same fate that Sato has been having?
