It is the 4th February 2010 and this is F1Minute.

Mercedes GP have confirmed their reserve driver for 2010 and it is none other than Nick Heidfeld. Having missed out on the Sauber seat, it was rumoured that Heidfeld would make the move to the all-German team, alongside Michael Schumacher and Nico Rosberg. He said: “While I would of course have preferred a seat as an active driver, I am really proud to be part of the new Silver Arrows team. I have seen how committed everyone at the team is and I feel the same.”

Meanwhile, Ferrari boss Stefano Domenicali has been talking about the team’s excellent performance in the first pre-season test, but says they’re not about to get carried away: “We can’t take anything for granted and we shouldn’t delude ourselves by indications, which could be completely misleading. We can’t work like in football where two good or bad results are enough to pass from riches to rags or vice versa.”
