This is F1Minute and today is the 10th July 2008.

The third and final day of the test at Hockenheim came to a close with Felipe Massa the fastest man. Button was in second, and Kovalainen third. There were three red flags throughout the day, one caused by Fisichella – who suffered quite a crash – Nakajima, and Alonso. Fisichella lost control of his car and smashed into a nearby wall, he was unharmed but there was significant damage to the Force India.

Elsewhere, Donington Park have revealed their plans for improving the circuit for when the British GP descends in 2010. They are lengthening the track to get it to the required standard, introducing a new facility for race control and the media, and updating the pit complex so the teams will feel quite at home.

Finally, renowned F1 photographer Bernard Cahier has passed away at the age of 81. He had worked in motorsport since the 50s and was instrumental in organising the structure of F1 media.
