Honda to drop Barrichello and Button?

By on

Speaking with 'GPWeek', Honda's Nick Fry declared that Rubens Barrichello and Jenson Button are not guaranteed of a Honda seat beyond 2008. The contract of both drivers expires at the end of the year and Fry said that Honda is an attractive team for talented drivers on the market.

Fry said to 'GPWeek': "We're open minded at the moment and our drivers are aware of that. Obviously when you have a Team Principal and technical guru like Ross in the team, we become possibly even more attractive than we were before and the change in the regulations for next year gives teams like us a big opportunity. Hopefully we can take advantage of that. At the moment we're not short of offers."

Honda is already focussing on the new 2009 car which will be adapted to the new regulations.
