Welcome to F1Minute, today is the 1st May 2008.

The Max Mosley saga rumbles on, this time with speculation increasing that Ron Dennis may have had some involvement with the story being leaked to the press. The head of the Czech Automobile Association stated his belief that Ron Dennis may have been getting revenge for the spy scandal last year, saying the Mosley revelations were a set-up. Dennis, however, has denied any such allegation, saying: “We are writing to Mr Novak and are currently considering the appropriate route via which the remarks that have been attributed to him may be withdrawn or corrected.” Another war of words begins, it seems.

Elsewhere today, recent Indy-Car winner Danica Patrick has said she would love to have a test drive with one of the Formula 1 teams, and Honda have stepped up as an interested party. Honda currently supply her engines, so the link is already there. Nick Fry commented: “We haven’t instigated anything, but if Danica wanted to be test driver then we’d be more than happy to talk about it.”

That’s all for today, please join me again tomorrow for another F1Minute.
