Although Ross Brawn, one of the main players in Ferrari's dominance at the start of the millennium, which saw the team win five consecutive championships, adheres to the principle of "never say never", the Briton denied thoughts of a return to the team from Maranello. Brawn left Formula One at the end of last season and was soon rumored to be returning to the wagon. "I did visit Maranello in May, but it was a completely private visit.

At Honda, they said they are worried, as they are expected to fall behind the other manufacturers, who will gain experience with the new 2014-liter turbo engines on the track throughout the 1.6 season. But the three current manufacturers will have to homologate their engines by February 28, and from then on the engine will no longer be allowed to change due to the freeze on engine development, unless there are changes that are supposed to provide greater reliability.

Red Bull Racing boss Christian Horner has revealed that at the end of the 2008 season, Jenson Button was interested in a transfer to the Toro Rosso Scuderia.
