This is F1Minute for the 24th August 2009.

The news that everyone is talking about is Badoer’s performance in the European Grand Prix yesterday. He was rather slow, spent most of his time at the back of the field, almost tangled with Grosjean in the pits and received a drive through penalty for crossing the white line at the pit exit. Ferrari have supported him, though, sort of.

Stefano Domenicali said: “Ferrari cannot be satisfied with a car in last position. That is pretty clear, but we need to consider all the circumstances and everything that happened.” It looks likely they will keep him in the car for Spa this weekend, but he may be replaced for Italy.

Meanwhile, Red Bull are thinking about introducing KERS into their car before the seaosn is out. It was suggested strongly that they might implement a device in time for Spa, however Christian Horner said: “We will make a decision for Monza after Spa. It would be the Renault/Red Bull KERS one that was developed at the beginning of the season.”

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