Welcome to F1Minute for the 29th June 2009.
Ferrari have already hinted that they are about to push 2009 under the carpet and turn their attention to 2010. Now, Heikki Kovalainen has said that McLaren are doing the opposite, and are trying to learn from their struggles. However, he does note that they could be preparing for next year as well, saying: “It is still important to keep pushing and trying different concepts and different directions, especially with the aerodynamics – the floor, the wings, to understand and make sure that the philosophy of next year's car is correct. It will be different to this year's car." Let’s hope so.
Meanwhile, Christian Horner has confronted the age old question regarding team orders but says that at Red Bull, there will be full driver equality. He says: “There is no number one driver. Updates are being introduced to the cars equally at every race, and that's the way it will continue for the rest of the season."
That’s all for now, I’ll be back tomorrow with another F1Minute.
