Ferrari are leaning towards letting Minardi contest their home grand prix in Melbourne, Paul Stoddart said. The Australian team owner emerged from a new meeting with Jean Todt and said the Ferrari principal would now consult with lawyers in New York. ''Apparently we can expect a letter saying that if they are the only team still objecting … then they'll give in,'' said Stoddart, visibly tired. ''It's true,'' he added, ''I haven't slept all week, I think.'' At time of writing, it's a little past 8.30pm New York time.
