With the Spanish Grand Prix over, there's a lull in the action before Monaco in two weeks time. It's good for us as we get a rest, but there'll still be news to discuss, such as:

  • Bourdais has said that he was lucky not to have had a bigger accident yesterday, as he could have ended up rolling the car. Both Toro Rosso boys consider the accident a surprise, as the first thing Buemi knew of it was seeing Bourdais' tyre, while the latter couldn't do anything as all the cars in front of him just stopped. Will the team find someone to blame though?
  • Vettel says his bad start cost him the victory, particularly the fact that Massa got past him so he spent the entire race staring at the wrong end of a Ferrari. Will he be another driver going back to the team and saying we need that KERS?
  • Button says Brawn have regained the advantage of the field now, which I find a bit odd because I'm not sure they ever lost it? He's won four out of the five races there have been, so I can't see them having been behind at any point.

That'll do it for now. Please keep the excellent thoughts coming, and let us know what you're doing the day after the race before. As ever, I'll see you in the comments.
