Welcome to F1Minute, it’s the 9th November 2009.

I can’t work out whether Toro Rosso already confirmed their drivers, or if it has merely been suggested that the current pair will stay, but we now know for certain that is what’s going to happen for 2010. Team boss Franz Tost said: “I’m quite confident that from the middle of next year onwards we will have a good driver line-up, because then Alguersuari will know all the tracks, and Buemi is increasing his performance already. The last few races were quite good.” A glowing recommendation, indeed.

Elsewhere, Nico Rosberg is feeling pretty good about himself, and thinks that the season he has just completed really made him a more valuable driver. He said: “This season has been an important year for me, because I really saw it as a kind of stepping stone to have the chance to fight for race wins next year and even the championship.” He thanks Williams for their support, but he’s off.

That’s it for now, I’ll be back tomorrow for another F1Minute.
