Welcome to F1Minute, it’s the 27th February 2009.
Williams have finally unveiled their official new livery for this year, after running various different paint jobs during testing. It’s disappointingly not the dark blue of the winter test, but a bright blue and white, similar to last year’s car. The pictures of the new livery also reveal some aerodynamic fins either side of the cockpit, which are apparently in place to help the airflow onto the rear wing. These have been dubbed “skate fins”, by the team themselves.
Elsewhere today, Bernie Ecclestone has suggested that Rome could have a Grand Prix by 2013, if certain circumstances are met. The Senator needs to approve the idea, and is optimistic it will go ahead. The race would be held on the outskirts of the city, and would be a street circuit.
Finally, Autosport reports that all the drivers will now give in to the FIA demands and pay the superlicence fees, joining the six that have already done so.
That’s it for today, have a great weekend and join me back here on Monday for another F1Minute.
