Today is the 12th March 2009, and you’re listening to F1Minute.

Barrichello took Brawn GP to the top of the timesheets for the second day in a row in Barcelona. The final day of testing saw Rubens collect the best time of the week, and he’s feeling very confident. He said: “The car has proved fast and reliable throughout the week so we go to Jerez feeling positive and pleased with the results of our first test outing.”

Meanwhile, Rosberg finished second in the Williams, with Glock in the Toyota third. Ferrari posted the sixth fastest time, whilst Hamilton dragged the McLaren off the bottom to end the day in 8th. Buemi and Bourdais shared the testing role today, with Toro Rosso having a little better reliability than in previous days.

Elsewhere, Autosport is reporting that FOTA are determined to get F1 back into North America, with Martin Whitmarsh suggesting that the association support the race, rather than search for a track willing to give the most money.
