It’s the 18th September 2009 and this is F1Minute.

Both BMW drivers may run into trouble in terms of engine penalties before the season is out, as the failures in Italy weren’t repairable, as the team had hoped they might be. Boss Mario Theissen said: “Both drivers ran their engines from Spa in Sunday’s race at Monza, which leaves them with one more new engine each and several used ones for the remainder of the season. The key question will now be whether these will be enough.”

Meanwhile, organisers at Singapore are slightly worried about their upcoming Grand Prix, but not because they think the ongoing Renault troubles will overshadow it. They are more concerned about the weather, plus some haziness that has blown in from nearby forest fires. There is still a week to go, of course, but the FIA would make the decision if it was not safe to run the race. Let’s hope it doesn’t come to that.

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