This is F1Minute for the 22nd April.
A quick update on Super Aguri, co-owner Fumio Akita has said that as far as he is aware, the cars have now been sent on their way to Spain. This is after the short term future of the team looked very pessimistic following the collapse of the latest takeover deal.
In other news, Ferrari team president Luca di Montezemolo has said that they don’t really want to have Alonso in their team, squashing the rumours that he is destined for a seat there in 2009. Montezemolo said: “To line up a Räikkönen/Alonso double act would mean wanting to damage yourself. I want two equal drivers that work together.” Not necessarily as a response to this, but with coincidental timing, Alonso has said he has many options, including staying at Renault, but he’s also interested in Williams, BMW and Toyota.
Finally, today, a commissioner for the EU will be investigating the Valencia street circuit project after questions were raised by an environmental group. The concerns involve how the contract was decided upon, and also the potential noise levels.
That’s all for today, join me again tomorrow for another F1Minute.
