This is F1Minute for the 5th March.
Nick Fry has all but confirmed that the ex-Honda team will continue racing. At the FOTA press conference in Geneva, he said: “All the teams and their support have helped us preserve our team. So I, Ross and our 700 employees thank them.” That is as much information as we got, except that their new colours would be blue and red, and Fry said more details would be coming soon.
Meanwhile, FOTA announced their proposals for the future of F1, that they are submitting to the FIA for agreement. They want shorter races, more open-ness when it comes to data, fuel loads, and strategies, and a change in the points tally to try and encourage racing for the win. The entire press release is available, and well worth a read, on F1Minute.com.
Finally, it was the last day of testing in Jerez, with Heidfeld quickest. Notably, Hamilton crashed into a barrier after a gust of wind sent him off course. Trulli also struggled with front wing damage after crossing the kerbs.
That’s it for today, I’ll be back tomorrow with another F1Minute.
