    I'm sure I read somewhere he was demanding £15m per season. That's a ridiculous amount of cash to drop on a driver that hasn't really performed since '97. Even if they paid Jense and Takumu a Million each (which they don't) that'd be an extra £13m to put into the car.

    At the end of the day, after all the pre-season posturing, the figures speak for themselves:

    JV - 6 pts
    JB - 17 pts

    Hell - Takuma scored half as many points as JV did all season in one race!

    Anyway, he (JV) did say at the begining of the season that if he didn't outperform Jense he ought to get out of F1.

    Goodbyeeeeeeee!

    :clap:

    £15m!!! For JV! That's stupied no wonder BAR had finance trouble. Ever since he left Williams he has not performed. His car can't have been that bad considering Button finished with almost 3 times as many points as him.

    Here is the provisional calender for the 2004 season:

    March 7 AUSTRALIA Melbourne
    March 21 MALAYSIA Kuala Lumpur
    April 4 BAHRAIN Bahrain
    April 25 EUROPE Nürburbring
    May 9 SPAIN Barcelona
    May 23 MONACO Monaco
    June 6 SAN MARINO Imola
    June 20 USA Indianapolis
    July 4 GREAT BRITAIN Silverstone
    July 11 FRANCE Magny-Cours
    July 25 GERMANY Hockenheim
    August 15 HUNGARY Budapest
    August 29 BELGIUM Spa-Francorchamps
    September 12 ITALY Monza
    September 26 CHINA Shanghai
    October 10 JAPAN Suzuka
    October 24 BRAZIL Sao Paulo

    Should be a interesting season with new tracks being introduced.

    I'm glad to see the schedule back up to 17 races for next year. Looking forward to bahrain and china! I don't know much about their tracks and what kind of passing opportunities they will have so we'll see! Too bad about the Canadian GP though :(
