Minardi part with director
MINARDI have announced that they have parted 'on friendly terms' with director Cesare Fiorio.
Fiorio, who is a former manager of Team Ferrari, joined the team in January 1999 but has watched the Italian outfit continually placed at the back of the grid.
Minardi officials insisted the decision had been made as a result of differing team strategies, and vowed to continue normal preparations for Sunday's Hungarian Grand Prix at the Hungaroring.
