Welcome to F1Minute, it’s the 29th October 2009.

Nico Rosberg has confirmed today that he will not be driving for Williams after this final race in Abu Dhabi. He wouldn’t be drawn on where he was going and simply said: “I’ve been with the team for five years. They’re the only team I’ve worked with... There’s no reason why they can’t be as good as this year, but I’m not sure they can win races at the moment, and I would like to win races.”

Talking of drivers and their futures, Kimi Räikkönen has reportedly told Finnish TV that he’s not interested in Toyota, despite them offering him a deal. He thinks any future in F1 would only feature McLaren, but he’s not confirming anything just yet.

Finally, it really is bad news for Donington this time, as Bernie has confirmed that they have finally exasperated even his patience. He said it’s not going to happen, and talks with Silverstone are now ongoing. I’m gonna miss reporting every single deadline for you.

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