1 Williams seat settled?? Webber

Williams are expect to announce next week that Mark Webber will be joining the team in 2005.

Although the Aussie admitted on Thursday that he'd already decided which team he'll be driving for next season, he refused to name them saying the public will have to wait another "two races" before all is revealed.

"I know everything, you guys know nothing," Webber said during a press conference at Silverstone. "And that's how it will be today."

However, according to The Sun newspaper it is the BMW Williams team that the 27-year-old will be leaving Jaguar to join. Although Webber is only in the second year of his three-year deal with Jaguar his contract has a get-out clause that he will be using.

A Williams insider said: "Mark is joining the team and we feel he'll be a tremendous asset.

As for Webber's 2005 team-mate that is still undecided. The insider continued: "Anthony (Davidson) is on our shortlist but several other drivers are being considered. Jacques Villeneuve is one, along with Giancarlo Fisichella and our test drivers Marc Gene and Antonio Pizzonia."
