This is F1Minute and it’s the 22nd March 2010.

Toyota and Stefan GP have parted company now that the hopeful 2010 entrant did not get the grid spot they desired. Zoran Stefanovic has said: “We are very grateful to Toyota, which is a great company and doing a great job in what they are doing.” Whatever that is. He added that they are looking to the future and intend to initiate the process with the FIA, but are deciding how best to go about it.

Elsewhere, a section of tunnel at Spa has fallen in, causing minor damage to some run-off area on the track. The Blanchimont access tunnel collapsed slightly which has left a hole off-track, and some cracks in the surface of the circuit itself. No one was hurt, though, thank goodness.

Finally, the preview quotes are pouring in for the Australian GP and Alan Permane of Renault believes they can get both drivers into Q3. That’s the target, anyway.

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