Welcome to F1Minute for the 30th November 2009.

The FIA released the official 2010 entry list today, with plenty of to be confirmed notes. A couple of things stood out though, with Manor Grand Prix being listed as Virgin Racing. We’ve been expecting an announcement from Virgin to this effect, but it looks as though the FIA might have beaten them to it. Brawn GP are still listed as Brawn but it’s pointed out they have indicated their intention to change to Mercedes Grand Prix before next year.

Red Bull have been signed up with Renault engines, although Christian Horner has pointed out they still have not come to a final decision. Also, notably, Toyota are missing off the list, as you would expect, and there is no mention of whether the grid slot is going to be filled by anyone, with Sauber still facing an unknown future.

On that subject, Mario Theissen confirmed that he will be staying with BMW as head of motorsport, rather than moving to Sauber.

That’s all for today, please join me tomorrow for another F1Minute.
