Welcome to F1Minute for the 7th August.
Today, Peter Windsor has been talking about his new team USF1 and confirms that they are well within their schedule to be ready for the beginning of the 2010 season. Speaking to Sports Illustrated, he said: “We haven’t lost any time at all, to be honest. We’ll start manufacturing the car in the next couple of months. We don’t have to have the car built until early January. In general, the design is completed, but you never say it’s completely done.” He went on to add that they really are hoping to get American drivers in both of their seats, and reiterated that Danica Patrick is too big a name for them right now. He says there is plenty of talent out there to choose from though.
Meanwhile, the news is scarce as the teams have all agreed to shut down their factories for two weeks in order to help cut costs. The summer break really is a break! That being the case, F1Minute will take a week off, as will F1 Big Picture. There are plenty of photos in the archive though, if you find yourself bored.
Have a great weekend, and I’ll be back on the 17th August.
