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

AUTOSPORT have done some digging into the Singapore Renault investigation and found that the initial complaint has come from Nelson Piquet Sr, and subsequent information has come from his son. There is talk of a meeting between Piquet Jr, Flavio Briatore and Pat Symonds on the day of the race, in which the plan to throw the race for a convenient safety car was discussed. Apparently, Piquet says he was instructed to do so, whilst the other two insist that it was actually the young driver’s idea.

Two quick snippets, Ferrari have confirmed that should Fisichella wish to drive for another team next year but still retain reserve driver status with them, they’d be all for that. Presumably they have learnt that having an active driver on standby can be useful.

Finally, Williams and Force India have been allowed back into FOTA, following a meeting of the association today.

That’s all for now, please join me tomorrow for another F1Minute.
