F1's governing body has reserved two spaces on the 2009 formula one grid for a team to potentially be bought from Honda.

In the official FIA entry list, cars 18 and 19 are reserved because the Brackley based squad has formally entered the forthcoming world championship.

"The FIA understands the team is now for sale," an addendum to the statement said.

The list featured no surprises, with only Sebastien Buemi's teammate at Toro Rosso the only other unconfirmed space on the grid.

Kimi Raikkonen has been allocated the higher racing number (3) at the Ferrari team, despite Felipe Massa failing to win the drivers' title from McLaren's Lewis Hamilton by a single point.

Following the end of its supplier relationship with Ferrari, Force India is to be now known officially as a constructor as Force India-Mercedes.
