We have reached Thursday once again, and it seems to have been a bit of a trying week for a lot of commentors so far. Let's hope that Terrible Thursday isn't too bad this time round. What we'll do to ward off the evil spirits, is talk about Formula 1!

  • It's all about new and young test drivers today, with Toro Rosso confirming they'll run Bortolotti and Renault planning to give 3.5 series champ Baguette a go. Oh dear, just think of the headlines there will be! That name is pun-tastic.
  • After reports over the previous few days have suggested that N.Technology's claim against the FIA has been rejected, it looks like the decision hasn't actually been made yet. Joe believes the rumoured answer is what is going to happen, but we won't find out till tomorrow.
  • Grosjean is the latest victim to undergo the Ask the Expert quiz on F1.com. He doesn't do particularly well, only coming joint 14th with Barrichello and Vettel. Can't quite believe they ask a Frenchman lots of questions and don't mention Franck.

That'll do it for now. Don't forget that if you use the doohickey, Mr C has made a few changes so that links now do the drop.io lightbox cool thing rather than opening in a new tab. Have a play around and I'll see you in the comments.
