Qualifying day, and if you're anything like us, this is the best day of the weekend. We're very much looking forward to watching the battle for pole position, and hope you'll join us when the live commenting threads appear. Here are some of the other topics we're talking about:

  • So, why has Geoff Willis left Red Bull? They say his position was no longer there, redundant, if you will. Is he heading to another team? Is he just unable to hang on to a job for any reasonable length of time? What exactly is going on with all these movers and shakers in the paddock?
  • Will this really be Bourdais' last weekend? He says not, naturally, but the rumours are circling, and there's even talk that his wife might have accidentally mentioned something somewhen. Even though I am in the Le Seb fan camp, I kinda hope this is true. It's about time we had some mid-season driver changes.
  • What is all this about Force India and their motorhome? We already know that Jake Humphrey off the good ol' Beeb was struggling with the doors, but now there are money issues to go with those doors? It seems odd that the bailiffs would turn up at a racetrack, but I suppose at least you know the team will definitely be around.

That'll do it for now. As ever, let us know what you're up to, if you're watching qualifying and the race, and who you tip to do well. I'll see you in the comments.
