Welcome to F1Minute, it’s the 3rd November 2009.

BMW boss Mario Theissen has said that he’s keeping his options open for the future. He said: “I certainly have the option to stay with BMW with the other racing programmes. But I deliberately pushed the decision out of my way until the final race, so I will decide in the coming weeks. But the top priority is to get a place on the grid for the team, and even after that I will think about my own future."

Meanwhile, Red Bull have a decision to make over who their engine supplier will be for next year. It looked like they might want to change, as they were a high profile team struggling with engine reliability, but now Autosport reports that they will likely be staying with Renault. Christian Horner said: “Since Monza, Renault have remarkably raised their game and done everything they could for us to have such a strong finish of the year. Renault has fuel-efficient engines which will be very important in 2010.”

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