Today is the 7th April, and this is F1Minute.

After featuring on the podium for all three races of 2008 so far, BMW are looking to be a strong contender for the championship this year. At least, that’s what Ferrari boss Stefano Domenicali thinks, saying today that Kubica is a driver to watch out for. Domenicali also said that although McLaren appear to be struggling they shouldn’t be written off just yet.

Meanwhile, Ron Dennis has weighed in on the subject admitting that for McLaren, BMW are not a worry for the future. He said: “I think that we respect all competitors and they’re doing a better job than they’ve done at any other time in their involvement in F1. But it is when we get to Europe that the R&D and speed of manufacture starts to make a difference.”

At least everyone agrees it will be a tight race to the title, everyone, that is, except Alonso. He’s again reiterated that he’s not expecting to fight for the podium this year, and in response Renault have promised him an updated aero package and well, basically, a better car.

That’s all for today, join me again tomorrow for another F1Minute.
