We are in the middle of the week now, and it is Gil de Ferran's birthday today. Part time racer, part time director, we're a fan of Ferran after meeting him at the Honda quiz a few years ago. Anyway, here are some of the more F1 related things we're talking about:

  • The team who are allowing Trulli into their NASCAR test say they are taking things very seriously, even if Jarno himself says it is just for fun. Apparently they like bringing drivers in from other series' to see how they got on and they want him to be as fast as possible. They do know it's Trulli, right?
  • Meanwhile, Trulli's teammate may not have much in the way of a drive at the moment, but he does have a fan. RG has written up the first of a three-part series on Glock's best drives of the year. I really like the idea of reviewing a drivers best performances, particularly when it's written with such passion.
  • There were a couple of conversations about how qualifying will turn out next year, and here are Jackie's thoughts on the subject. A great post which weighs up the pros and cons of the regulation changes for 2010.

A couple of things to finish: we also featured a great post from Chris about his weekend at Top Gear Live, and whilst that show returns to TV this weekend, we'll be watching Cars during the Sidepodfilmclub. That'll do it for now, I'll see you in the comments.
