It's been a relatively quiet day both on the blog and for Formula 1. I think we're all recovering from the shock of last weekend, me included. I stepped out of my front door again, big mistake, and have picked up yet more germs. Can't even blame Silverstone or Cardboard tents this time. Oh well. Here's some of the things we have been discussing:

  • Day 1 of the Jerez test - Toro Rosso lead the way, Buemi better than Bourdais again? Raikkonen was back in action, whilst McLaren had test drivers aplenty. No Red Bull or Toyota, though.
  • Autosport is reporting that the standard engine will be going ahead as no less than five teams have registered their interest. That's half of the current grid, or more than half if you discount Honda. Interestingly, the article says Renault are amongst those signing up for the deal. No more Renault engines?
  • We're also trying to decide which iPod Scott should buy. I'm personally a big fan of the Nano, although I sometimes run out of space, especially if I'm behind on my podcasts.
  • Don't forget we're on C in the I Spy game, and I think 73 is the next to be completed on the Numbers game. If we could get to 100, that would be cool.

I'm hoping the second day of testing might be more interesting than the first, as it was hampered by bad weather conditions, and no surprise cars looking awful. Either way, feel free to add your thoughts on the above, or any other things that come to mind. I'll see you in the comments.
