Hello everyone, today is Friday the 10th November, and this is F1Minute, bringing you the top headlines.

Renault have issued a statement saying that engineer Phil Mackareth arrived from McLaren with disks of information, but, although some of the other staff may have seen the details, none of it influenced the design of the cars. Mackareth has been suspended, the information has been deleted from Renault’s computers and returned to McLaren and they are confident that the FIA will be able to judge their innocence.

More courtroom drama, with Timo Glock’s future in F1 being decided by the Contract Recognition Board. BMW have always insisted they are happy to let their test driver race elsewhere, but it appears now Toyota may have signed him up for 2008, contract irregularities exist. We don’t know for sure what they are but the CRB will be making their decision shortly.

Also in the news, the British government say they are fully backing Silverstone, but still refuse to part with any cash, whilst the Australian government are trying to limit rumours that the race may relocate.

That’s all for today, have a wonderful weekend and join me on Monday for another F1Minute.
