Big blow to Jenson and Williams..
the contract recognition board have ruled against them..
Williams now have to look for a driver to complete their 2005 line up.. who will at best get a 1 yr contract

will be very interesting to see who they will pick..

was actually looking forward to seeing the button vs webber battle..
guess i'l have to wait for 2005

Maybe this isn't so bad for Button after all.. with the way BAR are outperforming Williams!

I kinda agree, but, wid F1 u never know! Next year, they may not have the pace, or have the reliability(touchwood) McLaren is an excellent example of the fact!

Now, it'll be interesting to see who Williams pick as their driver. Could it be Antonio Pizzonia??

Oh yeah, you'll see that even now. Button's BAR followed by Webber's Williams. Lol.

Good to know Button is back with BAR, he would have wasted himself, with Williams.

dont think BAR will manage to outperform williams again..
and next yr they wont have the advantage of running a 3rd car of friday..

that will go to mclaren.. which will enable them to get their cars setup better and faster..
think they will be the closest to ferrari next season !

speedsatya... DC is really lobbying for the empty seat at williams for 2005..
actually went a long way in saying why he should be picked.. ( experience etc ) at the press conf.

williams are leaning toward pizzonia for next season.. but lets see what happens..

I can't understand why BAR would want to keep Button when he has made his intentions very clear. The should have let him go and picked another driver. There are enough talented drivers out there. I doubt that Williams will opt for COulthard

hakkinen did test a C class DTM. But its highly unlikely that he'll come back to fulltime racing.

Hakkinen i think is also a maybe, i think the team just has to convince him that he needs to make a comeback, and yeah maybe he would drive for williams then

i personally hope mika comes back to full time racing guys. atleast the excitement of "competition" will prevail. no and trust me no one in my opinion has it what it takes to beat shumi except for the "flying fin"
