It’s the 7th April 2009 and this is F1Minute.

McLaren have been called before the World Motor Sport Council on the 29th April to face charges regarding the misleading of the stewards in Australia. The FIA have levelled several breaches of the Sporting Code against McLaren, with several separate incidents listed where the team continued to lie about what happened in Melbourne. McLaren have acknowledged the hearing and said they will co-operate at every opportunity. Also, the team have confirmed that they have parted company with Dave Ryan for good.

Elsewhere, Williams chief Patrick Head has said that the issue they raised against the Ferrari and Red Bull sidepods in Australia will now be brought up at the Technical Working Group meeting in a couple of days time. They appealed against the teams at the race but later withdrew their protest, suggesting it was for the good of the sport. Now Head says the matter will be resolved behind closed doors instead.
