Button to Ferrari, Williams or BAR

Jenson Button could move to Ferrari in an $18-million deal if rumors in Silverstone can be believed. "I read that this morning as well. A nice piece," he grinned when asked at a news conference about a headline on the back page of the Daily Mirror proclaiming "Jenson to join Ferrari".

The newspaper said that Button, who has yet to win a race in 92 starts, was being lined up for a 20 million pounds move to the Italian team as a replacement for Brazilian Rubens Barrichello.

"I can't say anything on my future next year, I'm just living in the moment which is pretty good," said Button. "I won't (deny the story), but I cannot talk about my future next year. That's it. I am not going to say yes or no."

Although Barrichello has a contract with Ferrari through 2006,Bernie Ecclestone was quoted as saying Ferrari would be good for Button but he would bet on a move to Williams, where Button started his career in 2000.

"If I was a gambling man, my money would be on Jenson with Williams next season because it looks as if he cannot get out of his contract with them — even if he wanted to," he told the Daily Express. "It wouldn't be the worst move he has made."

BAR boss Nick Fry admits Button might not be easy to hold onto but he is hoping the driver will choose to stay.

"Our contract (with Button) is not watertight but we're relying on the fact Jenson will see there is a good future with Honda," Fry told BBC Radio Five Live.

"Honda have a huge heritage in F1, we've won in the past and we will in the future. We're a good place to be and Jenson's got to make up his mind."
