This is F1Minute for the 27th January 2010.

We’ve heard from many teams who intend to miss the first test of the pre-season, but Campos Meta are taking it a step further, and will most likely skip all the testing. Their head of strategy Daniel Eisen has been talking to the AP, and said: “Bahrain is a test, it’s not a first race for us. The cars are very advanced, we have a driver under contract and our intention is to be in Bahrain for the first race.” He said they are still negotiating for funding but that everything is going according to plan. It also looks as though they won’t be announcing a second driver until much nearer the start of the season.

Meanwhile, Ferrari have become the next team prepared to stream their launch online. The 2010 car will be revealed in Maranello tomorrow and the event will be streamed at ferrari.com.

Finally, new driver José María López said he was sure his chance of getting into F1 had passed, but says his goal is for US F1 to be the best of the new teams.

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