You know it is a slow news day when the daily post reverts to telling you what kind of public holidays are being celebrated on the date in question. Today, 10th June is Portugal Day in... well, Portugal, obviously. I don't know what kind of celebrations take place on a day such as this, but I like it. Anyway, here's some F1 stuff:

  • FOTA's response to Max's suggestion they fall under the budget scheme and work on the regulations like one big happy family was apparently "not entirely negative." Does that mean they said "no but nice idea"? Or perhaps the FIA are just playing it down for now. Roll on Friday is all I say.
  • Nick Heidfeld is doing a Jenson (and to a lesser extent a Franck) and offering up a helmet design competition. We had one very happy commenter last week, when Lou picked up third place and a signed Brawn cap, so who wants to win Nick's prize? Tickets to the Nurburgring and a paddock entry.
  • Mr C got quite excited about the mention of an F1 app in Will Buxton's blog, and wrote an entire post about it. Is it so, can it possibly be, that Bernie is starting to realise there is more to this internet thing than meets the eye?

That should do for now. I am going to quickly abuse my power here to wish my mother a happy birthday (and to provide a reminder to myself to do so in person later in the day), and as per usual, I'll see you in the comments.
