Today is the 20th October 2008 and this if F1Minute.

BMW technical director Willy Rampf believes the team should be very proud of what they’ve achieved this year, despite being out of the hunt for the championship now. He said there’s no need to be disappointed because they are still competing with the two teams in front. Regarding Kubica, Rampf has only the highest praise: “During the race he is sometimes asking questions – it is something when a driver has enough time and mental capacity to think about things. He is a very quick driver and also a very intelligent driver.”

Meanwhile, the Canadian Grand Prix organisers have refuted Bernie Ecclestone’s claims that they breached their contract. The suggestion is that they owe money from both 2007 and 2008, but the marketing department says: “"It is true that we have a commercial disagreement regarding our monetary obligations, but only for 2008. This is the result of an historical difference within the contractual understanding between the two parties.”

That’s it for today, I’ll be back tomorrow with another F1Minute.
