Welcome to F1Minute, it’s the 19th June.

Nick Heidfeld has said that he still thinks he needs more practice when it comes to getting the best out of his tyres in qualifying. So far this year, Kubica has got the better of him on Saturdays, and Heidfeld took the opportunity of an extra days test in Barcelona last week. However, he says it wasn’t just a matter of changing one thing, but it’s a gradual process.

There were rumours going around the paddock that the drivers may be on course to strike at the British Grand Prix in response to the price hike of the superlicence. However, most of the drivers are playing down the talk. Alonso and Kubica are both unimpressed with how much their licence will cost, but Kubica says a strike is unlikely. Max Mosley has confirmed he is happy to meet with the GPDA to discuss the matter.

The BMW Pit Lane Park will be turning up in Manchester on the weekend of the British Grand Prix. There will be cars doing donuts, a Pit Stop challenge, and plenty of other F1 related goodness for visitors to experience.

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