Welcome to F1Minute, today is the 26th May 2009.

Following Kimi Räikkönen’s third place podium finish in Monaco this past weekend, Ferrari boss Stefano Domenicali has said that the Finn could have won if there hadn’t been a problem with a pit stop, and this return to form is just the start. He also added: “On a track where talent is important, Kimi has shown what he is able to do.”

In a similar show of solidarity, BMW’s Mario Theissen has rubbished rumours that Nick Heidfeld could leave the team at the end of this season. I hadn’t heard these but apparently the German media think Quick Nick could be replaced for 2010. Theissen says their driver lineup is decided in September and he isn’t even thinking that far ahead just yet.

Conversely, Timo Glock is sticking up for his team, saying that the uniqueness of the Monaco track is why Toyota performed poorly, and he’s expecting an improvement for Turkey.

That’s it for today, please join me again tomorrow for another F1Minute.
