Rubens Barrichello is in talks with Williams about a team switch, but his 2009 teammate Jenson Button looks set to remain at Brawn next season.

Despite reports of a disagreement over his push for a pay-rise, a team source told the British Daily Mail newspaper that Button, 29, is not also going to leave the Brackley based squad.

It is expected that either Brazilian Barrichello, 37, or Button will have to make way at Brawn for the arrival of Mercedes' favoured German driver, Nico Rosberg.

"We've been told by Ross Brawn that Jenson is staying and that's that," the Brawn source said.

The Daily Mail added that Button's manager Richard Goddard is not in talks with any alternative teams.
