Hello everybody, this is F1Minute, I’m Christine and these are your top headlines for 10th October.

Autosport.com are reporting that Prodrive, the 12th entrant for the 2008 season, may actually struggle to have a car ready in time for the season opener. After the FIA announced the hearing for the legality of customer cars in a couple of weeks, Prodrive’s misery has been compounded by McLaren dropping negotiations to be the supplier, for the time being. Team boss Dave Richards remains confident these are just short term issues.

McLaren have also made headlines today by reiterating their equality policy for drivers, especially for the last and deciding race in Brazil. There have been mumblings in all directions that either Alonso or Hamilton will be favoured, but McLaren are adamant this will not happen, despite strained relationships within the team.

And finally, UK newspaper, the Daily Mail is reporting that Williams have made a £28 million loss in 2006, down from a similar sized profit the previous year.
