I never thought Fisico was a real option for Ferrari - Due to italians sperstitions - but they know how the guy is good and how to use him as a benchmark. Andy, I agree with your opinion.

Hmm Webber will go to Renault I reckon, unless they underperform this year, I'd like to see Villeneuve back in a Williams, Rubens will stay at Ferrari when Schumi retires, Pizzonia no way-look at his Jag form to judge that, Gene maybe, Rosberg/Piquet testing role, too young still i reckon. Coulthard no, Patrick Head has already said so. Maybe Kimi if DC stays at McLaren, which leaves Button and Fisi, Button though IMO will stay at BAR if they are competitive. Maybe Trulli?? Or even Massa. It could be really anyone...

Ralf fans,

How dare you to warns that this poll have no influence on FW's decision?:confused:

We all know, this poll will determine Sir Frank's decision.

First, I have to say I'm deply upset cos' my vote won't influence Fw's decision
Then I voted Nelsinho; not that I 'm so strongly convinced about it, (i'd prefer Nico), but, among the listed name, it looked like being the least unlikely.

If i were in Frank's shoe, i'd opt for Button too.

Williams had worked with Button before and they worked pretty well, deciding to give up Button for JPM because JPM's talent and potential then is hard to resist. Furthermore, Button showed well against well-regarded teammates, and his maturing had impressed many. Lastly, Button would have a year to learn how to lead a team, and if the improvement trend continues, Button would really grow to be a good driver. Many people tend to forget that Button is actually one of the younger drivers around at 24 and has a long time to bid for success.

Fisi is slightly a better driver than Button now perhaps, but age isn't on his side.

Webber is another equally brilliant choice, but Button's English and seemingly more "promotable".

I still say Webber over Button but there is a chance that they could both be at Williams next year.The only reason Webber would get the nod over Button is his results in an under performing car and his ability to get the best out of it.Besides Im biased because hes an aussie.

I wouldn't be so sure with Bernie pushing Webber's barrow this week & Bernie has a habit of getting what Bernie wants.

Barichello was apparently their first choice - they even had initial talks with him. He prefers to be number 2 at Ferrari, though, and has signed on 'til 2006. Ferrari will be lucky to ever find another driver who's quite so ... "accommodating". After him, I think Button is their next choice, then Webber. Webber has some political, and probably financial, baggage courtesy of his relationship with Flavour Flav, plus Button is already familiar to the Williams guys. He's was less irritatingly chirpy/flirty in 2003 than in previous seasons too

For both of them, though, a lot depends on how their current teams perform this year. If Button still can't get on the podium, he'll be talking to Williams by mid-year. If Jaguar fall back into their old ways of mediocrity and disappointment, Webber will be looking at Renault and maybe Williams.

Not sure even Bernie can influence Sir Frank.

Sir Frank is certainly his own man and makes his own decisions... though one has to wonder about the BMW/Ralf connection!

Button/Webber/Fisico deserve it the most especially if there cars arent competitive this year. In my opinion Ralf dosent really deserve it but i suppose it also depends on what happens with Michael in the near future. Plus with Nelsinho and Nico being inexperienced and so far not quick enough they shouldnt get the drive. Frank should go for a quick reliable driver like Button,Webber or Fisico then they will get results!

The other way around is just as likely - if Jenson or Mark manage great things and drag these under-perfoming teams to the podium once or twice it will gain them more credibility than if their respective teams continue to fail. Personally i think Button will be moving to a better team because he is goinng to get some good results for BAR his year, and Webber will also be on his way but in his case because Jaguar will not able to give him the car he deserves but other team bosss already know his potential.
