Honda confirms current drivers

Honda Racing F1 has confirmed that Jenson Button and Rubens Barrichello will remain as team-mates for a third consecutive year in 2008.

"It goes without saying that 2007 has been extremely frustrating but over the past few races we have gradually started to see some improvement," said Button. "We have not had the performance to be competitive this year but what we do have is a very solid team of people which has been boosted recently by some key new appointments. Every team has good times and bad and I am confident that our recent difficulties are now behind us and that next year looks promising."
