This is F1Minute and today is the 13th May.

The FIA have confirmed that the Turkish circuit could face sanction after two dogs got onto the track during the GP2 race this weekend. A spokesman said: “This was a serious lapse in circuit security and safety. How could such a thing happen at an almost brand new Formula One track?” He went on to say that the Safety Commission will investigate and sanctions can’t be ruled out.

Elsewhere today, Force India principal Colin Kolles has said that the independent teams in F1 can still do well, and that Super Aguri failed because of the lack of a business model and not because smaller teams have no place in F1’s future. He said: “You can find investors and shareholders if you have the right business model, a clean sheet, and you have a clean company.”

And finally, in sponsor news, AMD are not going to renew their contract with Ferrari, and Lewis Hamilton is apparently interested in a $20 million sponsorship deal with sportswear brand Reebok.

Thanks for listening, I’ll be back tomorrow with another F1Minute.
