The Times newspaper reported earlier today that former Ferrari Technical Director Ross Brawn, is leading the management buyout and the new team will be funded by a combination of money from Honda itself for this year and funds from F1 supremo Bernie Ecclestone.

The newspaper reported also that the team will conduct a shakedown test of their new car next Thursday at Silverstone and a full test will follow in Barcelona on March 9.

Alongside Jenson Button, who is reportedly confirmed in one race seat, no decision has been taken yet on his teammate. It’s being rumoured this will be either Rubens Barrichello, who has been with Honda for the past three seasons, or Ayrton Senna’s 25-year-old nephew, Bruno Senna.
