It's Saturday at long last, and the day of the Sidepodmeetup/real life Christmas party. We know many of you aren't able to make it to the party itself, but we'll keep it as interactive as possible, and I'll be glued to the comments, as usual. Anyway, it was a busy week in F1, so here's some related stuff we're talking about:

  • Talking of meetups, Joe has been mulling over the concept of fan meetups and how he can connect with you, the reader, more. It seems to be aimed at people who might attend a race, and who might part with some cash to spend some time chatting about F1. Seems like a brilliant idea to me, head on over and leave your thoughts.
  • The FIA introduced a lot of information yesterday, including a revised calendar, confirmation of the new points system, and some revised stewarding plans. We posted a breakout thread on the story, and there is more info over there. The stewarding looks to be improved, but Abu Dhabi as the last race of the year again? Were they actually watching this year?
  • Since launching his new blog, Stuart has not stopped writing, which only serves to make me wonder how much we've missed out on whilst he's been blogless. Nevertheless, he has some post-Forum thoughts from Monaco, summing up the experience nicely. I don't think anything came out of the Forum that was a surprise, but it's always good to hear what is said.

That'll do it for now. Let us know how you're spending your weekend, and I will see you in the comments.
