    BAR had taken up their option on Button's services for 2005, but the driver's management team have used as an excuse to exercise their wish to move to Williams the claim that the contract is not valid because of a technicality.

    That technicality is believed to be based on the small print of BAR's recently-extended contract with engine supplier Honda.

    The contract is understood to reflect Honda's concerns about BAR's future with the possibility of a global ban on tobacco advertising being brought in over the next few years - the team are owned, and almost entirely funded by, tobacco giant BAT, which has been looking for buyers.

    Button's contract contains a clause that allows him to leave the team if BAR risk losing their Honda engines

    Probably - if Button wants to move to Williams, ultimately there is little BAR can do to stop him. Under European legislation that would be counted as a restraint of trade.

    However, BAR boss David Richards says the team will contest the move, and the row is likely to go before F1's contracts recognition board.

    If this rules in BAR's favour, then Williams will have to pay their rivals compensation for taking Button away.

    Button will drive for BAR next season as the Contracts Recognition Board ruled in favour of BAR. Hehe pirma kasi ng pirma ng contract.


    Natapos na rin ang 2004 season

    Tingin ko in 2005 season it will be another ferrari domination. The only reason why the 2003 season was competitive is because ferrari made a mistake in their cars.

    They made the wheelbase longer making it difficult for both drivers to drive. MS even said the 2003GA is quick but its twitchy.

    IF your going to take a look at the 2004 spec car. Halos wala naman pinagkaiba sa 2003GA. Plus, WIlliams made a risk by using an unconventional approach and mclaren sobrang palpak ang mp4-19.

    But the biggest leap frog we have all seen is BAR. 2nd in constructors championship. Galing:D
