The FIA has clarified the slight confusion surrounding what engine Minardi will use in the upcoming winter tests at Valencia after the team refuted it was using what the FIA described as "the old Cosworth engine." Spokesman for the team Graham Jones said Minardi would be using a European V10, which he said was a derivative of a Cosworth.

The FIA have now updated the testing report to concur that Minardi will indeed be using a European V10, with this explanatory statement:

"Minardi will be testing at Valencia from 26-28 November using the PS01B (2002 gearbox, rear suspension and floor) with additional PS02 updates. The PS01B will be running with a European V10 engine (based on the Cosworth VJ and VJM units developed and uprated by the European Engine Division at Ledbury)."

Ron Dennis couldn't have said it better.
