Who faces the media in Shanghai this weekend?

Following the Ford’s shock announcement last week, Thursday’s team personnel conference is sure to be packed. And the presence of returning former champion Jacques Villeneuve will doubtless guarantee the same on Friday. The exact line-up is as follows:

Thursday September 23, 1500 local time (0700 GMT):
Flavio Briatore (Renault), Ian Philips (Jordan), Tony Purnell (Jaguar) and David Richards (BAR).

Friday September 24, 1600 local time (0800 GMT):
Fernando Alonso (Renault), Michael Schumacher (Ferrari) and Ralf Schumacher (Williams). Then, from 1630, Rubens Barrichello (Ferrari), Juan Pablo Montoya (Williams) and Jacques Villeneuve (Renault).

Saturday’s and Sunday’s conference will take place immediately after qualifying and the race respectively, with both featuring the top three drivers.

As always, Formula1.com will bring you full transcripts of all conferences.
