Here we are at Wednesday, and supposedly the weathermen and women predict more snow. Weird though, because everything they've predicted so far has not happened, so I am not sure I'll believe them this time either. Anyway, here are some of the F1 things that are on our mind:

  • Virgin Racing are having a reshuffle before they've even begun, with John Booth taking over as team principal from Alex Tai. I didn't realise this Tai fellow had taken over, but it doesn't matter now as he has handed the reigns back, saying he would rather move on to fresh projects.
  • Schumacher got behind the wheel of the GP2 car today - we posted a couple of pictures on the drop. It was a bit damp out there in Jerez, though, and he only managed just over 50 laps before calling it a halt. Still, a couple more days to go, so we'll keep an eye on his progress.
  • Red Bull have suggested they won't be at the first test of the season, which simply echoes what they did last year. The story features in today's F1 Minute, and it also got me thinking about testing in general - so I wrote up some of my thoughts about visiting one of the pre-season tests.

That will do for now, keep your eyes peeled for F1 news, and as ever, I'll see you in the comments.
