Peter Sauber has confirmed that Felipe Massa will be Giancarlo Fisichella's partner at Sauber next year but there is still not going to be an official press statement until the deal is physically signed and although the deal is done in principle, there are still legal issues being sorted out - which has caused the delays.

Massa has spent this year test driving for Ferrari after racing at Sauber last year. He is now under the management of Nicolas Todt, the son of Jean Todt, having been bought out of his previous contract. It is expected that Ferrari will reclaim Massa in 2005 as team mate to Michael Schumacher.
