Welcome to F1Minute for the 21st October 2009.

A while ago, I reported on the teams concern over the 2010 calendar, with some of the races too close together. The FIA confirmed today that they are moving the Monaco Grand Prix to the 16th May, which is forward by one week. This means they have the regular fortnight gap to be able to get to Turkey, rather than the back to back it was scheduled to be originally.

Meanwhile, Webber is feeling super confident for next year, after the team’s and more importantly his own improvements throughout this season. He says: “Up until Singapore there were only a couple of points between Sebastian and I so there is absolutely no reason at all why I can't fight for the championship next season. I am disappointed that my championship bid faded, but as always you need to put a whole season together.” He’s sure that a consistent year will help them bounce back from this seasons defeat.

That’s all for now, I’ll be back tomorrow with another F1Minute.
