Hi everyone, this is F1Minute for the 15th November 2007, I’m Christine and these are your top headlines for today.

Unfortunately, we’ll have to wait until tomorrow to find out the results of the hearing today, but it looks like McLaren’s lawyer was fighting to get the BMW and Williams drivers disqualified. McLaren are adamant they don’t want to affect the championship but Ian Mill told the court that if rules had been breached, disqualification was the only option.

The final day of testing in Barcelona completed Ferrari’s dominance with Felipe Massa topping the timesheets. He was briefly beaten by Kovalainen in the Renault but that time was deleted for cutting the chicane. Franck Montagny finished up his contract with Toyota by placing the third fastest time. Button completed his two days of testing and after his complaints earlier this week, he seemed quite happy with the new style car. There were a total of 12 red flags today, too many to mention here.

And finally, Formula 1 bosses have signed a deal to allow an Indian company to build a race track 30 miles west of the capital Delhi, in time for the 2010 season.

That’s all for today, please join me tomorrow for another F1Minute.
