This is F1Minute for the 18th June 2008.

Irate F1 fans in Japan are launching a lawsuit against the organisers of the Grand Prix, saying there were not enough toilets or food stands. 109 fans are complaining that the 2007 Japanese Grand Prix at Suzuka caused them emotional distress, and they are looking for 32 million yen, which is about £150,000, in damages.

Ahead of the French Grand Prix, Fisichella is looking to end his run of bad luck that has seen some poor results so far this year. However, he’s not a fan of the track. He says “It’s the circuit where I had my biggest accident in Formula One, back in 2002… so for sure I don’t have great memories of it. Also I don’t see any particular challenge with it. As you know though, in our job you have to accept the good and the bad.”

Finally today, the results of Jenson Button’s triathlon over the weekend are now widely known, with the Brit placing 117th out of over 1700 entrants.

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