    Looks like Honda have finally had enough.

    Lets see how he does. Hopefully his engine will last longer this time.

    Good luck to the lad! Shows the power of a big manufacturer if you can drop a pay driver :)

    It's a shame for Sato. He can be quite good on his day, but sadly his day doesn't come very often (or usually last that long :p)

    I sort of feel bad for Sato but he's really blown it, and the fact that he had some powerful sponsors keeping him in F1 despite bad performance doesn't sit well with me.

    He has over 100 races under his belt but no win. I wonder what this season would have been like had he been driving a Renault or McLaren.

    Maybe Sato can drive for Toyota when they join NASCAR next year...

    or he could also go to the WWE

    That said, I am glad that Honda is going full stop for F1 next year but I just can't see what they see in Button.
    His ability to win races?
    His decisiveness?
    His dedication to his team?
    His technical expertise?
    His ability to pass and avoid being passed?
    His incredible ability not to get around a slower Jarno Trulli at Monaco in 2004?

    Must just be the sunglasses.

    Sato is the most out of control driver in F1. He does NOT deserve to hand such an awesome machine. Send him to Nascrap or go-karts.
