Minardi on schedule to depart

THE first Minardi-European PS01 was finished during Tuesday night and the team is on schedule to have all its cars and equipment ready in time for the departure of the F1 freight to Australia on Friday. The team is yet to announce any sponsorship but it is expected that there will b a function in Melbourne to unveil the team's new color scheme. It is still going to be a real struggle for Fernando Alonso and Tarso Marques as they will be trying to set-up cars which have had no testing at all. However, down in Faenza, there are some proud but rather weary people who have won the first race - getting the cars to Melbourne.
