It’s the 22nd June 2009 and this is F1Minute.

Two teams who did well at yesterdays race are still keeping cautious on their form, as Felipe Massa isn’t entirely sure where Ferrari stand at the moment. He says: “For me, you have now Red Bull, you have Brawn, and then you have two or three teams who are in a similar position, and for the moment we are inside these teams." Massa thinks KERS is a real benefit for them, but their improvement could just have been because of track temperatures on Sunday compared to qualifying on the Saturday.

Adrian Newey celebrated the Red Bull 1-2 on the podium, picking up the constructor’s trophy, but now the champagne has settled he says it’s too early to think they can catch Brawn in the title battle. He says: “I think this circuit has suited us very well, and equally it hasn't suited the Brawn. So it hasn't been a normal weekend - we shall see. I will continue to take each weekend as it comes, and do the best we can in those weekends."

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