So remind me, how does this work again? We're down one Sidepodmember today, as the girl picked up a bit of a cold after experiencing fresh air recently - it's a dangerous world out there people, be warned. As a result I'm left to write the daily post and all I've been doing all day is geeky things, the kind that bore people senseless at parties.

However, if you're so inclined, you may like to check out Christine's other site - F1 Minute, and tell us if you can spot any noticeable performance improvement. I'm busy looking for the elusive last tenth that should make the everything feel snappier, and just like Valentino Rossi in charge of four wheels, I'm finding it's tougher than it looks.

Regardless, there's plenty to discuss in the ever changing world of F1:

  • It's the final day of testing in Jerez. McLaren just revealed their grotesque side, by rolling out the '09 spec front wing, who's left to show their hand and how late can they leave it?
  • The Motorsport Business Forum continues in Monaco. Max was truly on form yesterday, but what will the major headlines be before everyone heads home this evening?
  • Sato's already talking like he own's that STR seat and Buemi finished ahead of Bourdais again, so what happens if Button takes up the alleged offer for one of those seats? Who will accompany him?

There's bound to be plenty more to discuss, it's Formula One, there always is. Yell if you hear anything exciting or if you happen to find my missing tenth.
