I’m Christine, this is F1Minute and it’s the 20th February.

Barcelona took the brunt of the wet weather today, with Felipe Massa topping the timesheets just ahead of Mark Webber in the Red Bull. Massa was also the cause of a red flag, spinning off in the morning, along with Timo Glock in the afternoon. McLaren were due to run but decided not to use up any of their limited testing miles in the wet weather.

Over in Valencia, BMW had improved conditions. The track was wet in the morning, but dried up in the afternoon. They carried out a full race simulation, and overall Kubica was slightly faster than Heidfeld.

In other news, the Fuji circuit have announced plans to improve customer satisfaction after complaints in 2007. Transport to and from the circuit is set for an overhaul, whilst fans should benefit from better viewing screens, more accessible walkways, and an increased number of staff.

Two very quick snippets to finish, Trulli has changed his mind and decided Toyota are capable of challenging the top cars next year, whilst Rosberg says his goal is simply to be better than in 2007.

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