Welcome to F1Minute for the 22nd September 2009.

Singapore organisers have been fixing up some of the track to make it perfect for the weekend. Changes include resurfacing the pit lane, kerbs being raised, and a couple of modifications to corner apexes, to make things a little bit trickier.

Meanwhile, to move on from their hearing this week, Renault are concentrating on the upcoming race, and Alonso says he’s hoping to get a podium, despite the fact development has switched to 2010. Technical director Bob Bell said: “There’s nothing major but they are sensible upgrades that are already in the production process. Our main development focus is now completely on the R30 and getting ready for 2010.”

Another team looking forward to next year is Williams, with Sam Michael saying they may actually get round to running KERS. They’ve been developing the only flywheel based system this year, but haven’t yet run it, but Michael says they will continue working on it for next season.

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