It’s the 15th January 2010, and it’s time for F1Minute.

Force India have confirmed they will be skipping the first test in Valencia in February, just as Red Bull are. Adrian Sutil said: “The new rules are a big challenge for everybody, so to make a clear statement about how good we have been in interpreting those new regulations we will have to wait until the first test in Jerez, where I will drive the VJM3 for the first time.” Interpreting the regulations sounds too much like the double diffuser debacle for my liking.

Moving on, Christian Horner has been talking on the Autosport International stage about the continuity of his team, suggesting that the drivers, the car, the engine, the staff, all of it will help enormously as they fight for the championship this year. He said they believe continuity is crucial.

Finally, to finish, Massa revealed that he asked Piquet Jr about the Singapore crash after it happened, and the Brazilian just laughed and wouldn’t answer the questions. Laughed!

That’ll do for now, please join me tomorrow for another F1Minute.
