Some important things happened yesterday in the world of Formula 1, but if you were anything like me, you were busy hiding out in the daily thread thinking happy thoughts. Sadly, they have run out now, and it is back to the politics in F1. Thankfully, it doesn't matter because it is Franck Day!! Here are some of the things we're talking about, not including Franck:

  • The FIA have provided a bit of an overview of the three new teams who are hoping to make their name in F1. Naturally, although these are confirmed teams, it's still worth taking their entry with a pinch of salt because anything could happen at this point. Still, if you want to find out who Campos, Manor and USF1 really are, it's worth taking a look.
  • Jake Humphrey has been out and about mingling with F1 drivers, and in his latest blog post he discusses what it's like being driven by, and driving, them around Silverstone. Mostly, everyone looked pretty scared!
  • It's been a dangerous week so far, as we've had two sporting injuries - Franck only went and broke his leg before the biggest race of the year, and Ollie hurt himself in Monaco. You can find out more about these and other Sidepodinjuries on the wiki.

That'll do it for now. I suppose all politics talk will return to the daily thread for today, but that's okay because I'll be hiding in the Franck thread! I'll see you in the comments.
