Minardi fans prove that they care
Minardi fans all over the world have responded by making their thoughts known and the team reports that it has already received several donations from individual race fans and from corporations. The money involved is tiny but as one Minardi fan in Australia wrote "if every F1 fan in the world sent in a few dollars there would not be a problem with the budget."
Team boss Paul Stoddart says he has been touched by the donations which, he says, prove the passion which F1 fans have for the team - the perpetual F1 underdogs.
