This is F1Minute for the 20th May.

It’s a bit early in the year for contract negotiations to become newsworthy, but a battle between the teammates seems to be brewing at Red Bull. Webber recently announced that he would be starting talks with the team for the future, whilst Coulthard is keeping quiet about his own plans. And whilst keeping his future on the downlow, Coulthard had a dig at Webber, saying: “When you think about it logically, you do your private negotiations in private and then when you’ve reached an agreement you make an announcement. I would conclude that it was a positioning tactic rather than anything else.”

Also today, Fisichella has said that when he celebrates his 200th Grand Prix start in Monaco this weekend, he wants to do it with a point or two. “One point is my target – everything else that comes on top of that is a bonus. We have a new aero package that will for sure help us, but the whole race is a lottery so you’ve got to be lucky too.” I thought Force India were still targeting getting into second qualifying, but we will see this weekend.

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