Welcome to F1Minute for the 4th June 2009.

Max Mosley has spoken out for the first time since the teams submitted their conditional entry. He simply said that the Concorde Agreement would be received too late to be signed by the 12th June, and that if the teams wanted to make the rules for a series, they’d have to go out on their own, as the FIA have control over the current Formula 1 championship. In the Turkey preview press conference, Mario Theissen said the teams aren’t interested in starting their own series, they want to work with the FIA to find a solution.

We also learnt today that BMW won’t be running their KERS device in Turkey. We were expecting to see a new and improved version this weekend, but the team want to concentrate on their new aero updates rather than the troublesome KERS.

Finally, two more potential teams for 2010 - N. Technology and the Brabham name, although the Brabham family are distancing themselves from the project.

That’s it for today, I’ll be back tomorrow with another F1Minute.
