Welcome to F1Minute, it’s the 12th May.

Autosport.com is reporting that the Singapore Grand Prix timetable has been revised, after fears throughout the paddock that the Practice sessions weren’t going to be useful to night running. The original schedule had the first practice session of Friday and Saturday in daylight, but that has now been revised so they start later. The change means that the gap between sessions is reduced.

Barrichello became the most experienced F1 driver this weekend but now the celebrations have died down, he has revealed that the next target is to reach 300 starts. This would mean his staying in the sport for another two years.

Despite leading the driver’s championship and defending his world title, Kimi Räikkönen isn’t completely satisfied with his performance so far this year. He’s admitted that qualifying is the worst part of his race weekend, and is something that needs some serious work. He lined up 4th on the grid in Turkey, and says that was partly because of fuel, and partly because the lap just wasn’t good enough.

That’s all for today. Join me tomorrow for another F1Minute.
