This is F1Minute and I’m Christine from Sidepodcast. It’s Friday, 12th October and time for a bit of reflection and remembrance.

Mark Webber has complimented his Red Bull team on making vast improvements to the car recently. He cites the final Jerez test as the turning point, and is sure they’ve made good progress. He also points out that some decisions they face for the 2008 car are momentous in terms of new direction, and he’s expecting a busy winter.

BMW boss Mario Theissen is very proud of their championship position this year. At the beginning of the season, the guys started out with hopes of finishing in the points, but they’ve now secured second place behind Ferrari. Theissen continues that it’s all because McLaren were booted out, and they need to start winning on the racetrack.

And finally, Lewis Hamilton is thinking about visiting the grave of F1 legend Ayrton Senna next weekend in Brazil. He’ll have some spare time after the championship has been decided and wants to honour some racing history. He’s decided to wait until after the race is over, because he admits it will be an emotional experience.

That’s all for today, enjoy your weekend, and join me on Monday for another F1Minute.
