Today is the 14th July 2009 and this is F1Minute.

After the news that Bourdais will most likely be leaving Toro Rosso by the time we get to the next race, the attention has now turned to Nelson Piquet. Flavio Briatore hasn’t helped matters by neither confirming nor denying whether Piquet would be in the second car in Hungary. However, Piquet seems to think he will be there, as he says he’s been promised the same car as Alonso.

Elsewhere, the 2010 season is losing races by the minute, as the German Grand Prix could be a no go. Hockenheim officials have already confirmed they are struggling to find the funds to host the event, and today the Nurburgring has said they wouldn’t want to hold the race every year, rather they prefer the alternate years deal that they currently have. However, the managing director of the circuit did say the only way it could happen was if Bernie reduced the fee and quote: “I cannot imagine that he is willing to accept my wish.” Me neither.

That’s it for now, please join me tomorrow for another F1Minute.
