Today is the 14th August 2008, and this is F1Minute.

A few snippets of news today, starting with Mark Webber who says that Red Bull are targeting fourth in the constructor’s championship by the end of the season. They’ve struggled slightly recently, but Mark believes they can get back on form: “It's a significant target and it would be nice to get it. Dietrich Mateschitz is very keen to finish fourth and there's always pressure. We know what we have to try to achieve, but I don't think he's going to sack everyone if we finish fifth instead.”

Also today, my favourite story for a long time, it’s emerged that Kimi Räikkönen is to be honoured on some Finnish stamps. They are to celebrate the Finnish Postal Services 370th birthday, and Räikkönen will get his very own copy of them at the Belgian Grand Prix.

Finally, Fisichella still says he is happy with Force India, despite the fact that he’s heading towards his first pointless season of his career, and says he looks forward to next year’s car instead.

That’s it for today, I’ll be back tomorrow with another F1Minute.
