This is F1Minute, I’m Christine from Sidepodcast, and these are your top headlines for the 20th November 2007.

Following Flavio Briatore’s hints that the Renault line-up for next year will feature all new drivers, Fisichella has said he has other opportunities within Formula 1. He hasn’t named names, but says he is looking around for other options.

The other news today is Toyota’s announcement that their new car, the TF108 will be launched on January 10th. Next season’s contender will be unveiled at their headquarters in Cologne. They are one of the first teams to announce the launch of their new car, with BMW being the only others. Their offering will be launched January 14th but they have not yet named the place.

And because that’s all the news there is, here’s an interesting quote from Mario Theissen about the future of the F1 calendar: “20 races is a lot and will place a heavy burden on the whole team. However, this is something we can live with. At the end of the day, we put a huge amount of resources into racing in Formula One. And if we do end up with another two races on the program, it will mean that these resources are actually being used more efficiently.”

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