Welcome to F1Minute, it’s the 9th October 2009.
We mentioned Massa’s return to form earlier in the week, but now the Brazilian has admitted he doesn’t think he will be back in the car for Abu Dhabi, although he had hoped he would be. He said: “I hope that I’ll be back soon, but I also know that the best thing is that I’m coming back 100% at the start of next season.” Massa will be waving the chequered flag at the upcoming race. He says it’s an honour, I think it will be difficult for him.
Elsewhere, Renault and Red Bull are heading to the streets to give fans a taste of Formula 1 up close. Renault are off to Romania for their roadshow, with Romain Grosjean and reserve driver Lucas di Grassi driving last year’s R28. Red Bull are in India, with David Coulthard ready to get behind the wheel in Mumbai, crossing a recently opened bridge in an F1 car. Apparently this “Red Bull Speed Link” event has been going since Wednesday, I hadn’t heard of it, and it will continue until Sunday.
That’s all for now, I’ll be back tomorrow with another F1Minute.
