Williams to try Button?
THE BMW Williams team is due to unveil its new car and driver line-up on January 10 in Munich and although there is speculation that the team may decide to keep Alex Zanardi for another season, our sources suggest that this is not very likely and that the team is still looking at signing up a young driver as partner to Ralf Schumacher.
It is possible, therefore, that the team will not nominate a second driver until after the next test and that there will be no driver announcement made at the event in Munich. It is also possible that the team will announce that Zanardi will continue - as it cannot do otherwise until a severance agreement is reached between the team and the Italian.
