Welcome to F1Minute, it’s the 2nd March 2010.
Today, US F1 have called it quits. It’s been on the cards for a long time now, and the speculation has only been increasing, but it was revealed today that any staff who had remained at the factory were out of a job. Dieter Rencken had the story, and reported that Ken Anderson and Peter Windsor stayed away from the factory, leaving production manager Dave Skog to break the bad news. Not good form. There has been no official announcement from the ex-team as yet. This may pave the way for Stefan GP to get their desired entry, but it is too early for that decision to be made.
On the complete opposite end of the spectrum, Lotus Racing have confirmed a deal with CNN - the US news network. Tony Fernandes said: “It’s a sign of the positive impact we have already made in the global business market that such a prestigious brand... has made the decision to partner with us.”
That’s all for now, please join me again tomorrow for another F1Minute.
