This is F1Minute for the 12th October 2009. Welcome.

It was only a matter of time before the FIA hit headlines again, and this time they are criticising whoever it is that is leaking vital documentation regarding Flavio Briatore. The Guardian newspaper has printed a story about some of the phrases used by Briatore in his case against the FIA and their motorsport ban on him. But the FIA have said they “condemn the selective leaking of extracts from Mr Briatore’s pleadings...” and they “reject the allegations made in these leaks and confirm the decision to impose a sanction against Mr Briatore was made by an overwhelming majority of the attending World Motor Sport Council Members.” The hearing is later this month, let’s hope there are no more leaks before then.

A quick note to finish, Mike Gascoyne, new chief at Lotus, believes they will be the best of the new teams - that’s their ambition, anyway, and he thinks they are making good progress.

That’s all for now, I’ll be back tomorrow with another F1Minute.
