Rumor in Formula One

Almost every time there is a rumor in Formula One, it is later revealed to be true. Often a story starts out as a news leak or offhand comment by a driver or team manager. Soon you get an additional scrap of information, perhaps another comment, and the story starts to firm up.

For example, last week we heard a rumor that Minardi Driver Alex Yoong may not compete in the final races of this F1 season and may be replaced because of his poor qualifying performance.

It's not been confirmed that Yoong is out for the remainder of the season. However, comments by Yoong seem to point in that direction.
