Honda deal in place?

AFP has picked up an unsourced report in Italian newspaper La Stampa Mexican billionaire Carlos Slim is taking over the Honda F1 team.

"The saviour has arrived: Carlos Slim, 67 years old, the second richest man in the world," AFP quotes the newspaper. "The news is not official as all the details have yet to be formalised. But two things are certain - the team has been saved and the drivers will be Jenson Button and rookie Bruno Senna in place of Rubens Barrichello."

The BBC will only go as far as saying Slim is one of four parties talking to Honda.

A spokesman for Slim has denied the claim.

"There is no deal for the Honda team. There is neither agreement nor negotiations," the source told AFP.
