Welcome to F1Minute, it’s the 13th January 2010.

Giancarlo Fisichella has said that he is still hopeful that he might get a race seat for one of the teams with a seat available in 2010, even though he is signed with Ferrari as a reserve driver. Fisi said: “Abu Dhabi could have been my last race, but maybe not. It would be nice to know my future, but in the case of not racing I’ll be in the Ferrari team as third driver and for me that’s still a very good opportunity.” Ferrari have already said there is nothing in Fisichella’s contract to stop him racing elsewhere.

Whilst we’re on the subject of Ferrari, the team confirmed the launch of their new car will be on the 28th January - a Thursday - and naturally, it will be in Maranello.

Finally, the new points scoring system has come under fire from Bernie Ecclestone who thinks although the numbers are bigger, the incentive to win still isn’t enough. It seems as though the teams are still discussing the system, though.

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