Honda Racing F1 Team driver Jenson Button has declared that he hopes the team will keep Rubens Barrichello as his team mate for the upcoming 2009 season. According to Button, speaking with 'autosport', the team will need feedback from experienced drivers during the difficult transition year ahead where KERS and slick tyres will be introduced in F1.

Jenson Button said: "There are so many changes aerodynamically with the car, and with the KERS also, and the slick tyres, they will need a lot of feedback from us. And having a new boy in the car, I don't feel that you get as much feedback. But it is not my decision."
