Tuesday arrives, and it is time to wish Tom G a very happy birthday! I hope the weather isn't too bad for you, Mr Tom, and that you are not falling down anywhere! I notice there were some Tom-shaped updates on the Sporting Injuries page on the wiki - don't forget to update it if you have anything to add! Anyway, here are some of the things we're talking about:

  • Alonso has been spotted out and about with his new Ferrari team, wearing some particularly striking red outfits. There are a few pictures on the drop. It's interesting that Alonso looks right at home in the red, whilst Button's appearance in his new McLaren gear was a bit of a shock. It's also good to see Massa looking so well.
  • Kovalainen has been talking about who he thinks will be battling it out in 2010, and has picked out Alonso vs Hamilton for the championship fight. This is bringing back all kinds of memories from 2007, and the debate is raging in the comments once more. If Kovi is right, I hope F1 is prepared!
  • Today, Michael Schumacher is getting behind the wheel of a GP2 car at Jerez in a development test for the series, which presumably also helps him continue to acclimatise to driving fast again. It's an interesting mix of the oldest driver on the grid taking part in the feeder series testing for young drivers to get into F1. I'm sure they'll be some pictures throughout the day.

That's all for now. Let us know what you're up to and how the weather is where you are, and I will see you in the comments.
