Welcome to F1Minute, it’s the 28th August 2008.

It was just yesterday that I told you about BMW’s desire for Nick Heidfeld to start getting some better results, and the German driver has made a good start. He topped the timesheets for Day 2 at the Monza test, pipping Rosberg in the Williams by just two tenths of a second.

Kovalainen was third ahead of Vettel and then Massa, who caused the one red flag throughout the day, having a quick trip into the gravel.

Whilst we’re on the subject of Ferrari, team principal Stefano Domenicali has been talking about the dynamic within the team. Whilst they’re not ready to put their full support behind just one driver yet, Domenicali is quoted as saying that Räikkönen is more than happy to support Massa if it should fall that way. He also said he has faith that Räikkönen can pick up his game once more, it’s just a matter of the team giving him a car that he likes.

And talking of the championship, McLaren’s Martin Whitmarsh believes a big part of the title this year will come down to the uncontrollable factor of the weather.

That’s it for today, I’ll be back tomorrow with another F1Minute.
