Welcome to F1Minute for the 20th February 2010.

Jenson Button was the fastest man out on track today, in the final day of testing at Jerez. There was absolutely no rain at all today, which was a nice change for the teams, and meant lots and lots of laps for all. Kubica and Kobayashi were second and third with 117 laps apiece, whilst the most laps went to Alguersuari who completed 139. The fewest went to Glock who finished second from last with only 28 laps. Virgin Racing had more problems with their hydraulics, and Glock caused one of the day’s red flags. The others were from Webber and Kobayashi.

Whilst I’m here for this special F1Minute, it’s worth noting the rumours of US F1. There has been a lot of talk that they were about to call it quits, although nothing official. Now co-owner Ken Anderson has confirmed that they are in talks with the FIA to be allowed to miss the first four races of the season. They are lacking in funding, and Anderson believes they could be ready for Barcelona.

That’s all for now, I will be back on Monday with another F1Minute.
