Another double birthday today, as Giancarlo Fisichella celebrates alongside Narain Karthikeyan. Fisichella is also looking for a race seat in 2010, alongside his testing duties for Ferrari. Busy man! Meanwhile, here are some of the things we're talking about:

  • Bernie has been talking again, with a couple of suggestions, including a bit of a tweak to the new points system, again. He doesn't think the change has made any difference at all, and wants still more of a gap. He's also proposed the idea of shortcuts on a racetrack to stir things up a bit. Odd.
  • There's even more testing news, as Schumacher's GP2 fun was hampered by the weather yet again, Ferrari are going to give Valentino Rossi another test, and Virgin are preparing for the second test, skipping the first just like Red Bull.
  • Meanwhile, I've been handing out homework assignments again, with a blog post request for the sentences on circuits. Essentially, your thoughts about each circuit on the calendar in some quick soundbites. You know you want to.

That'll do for now. It's the first day of Autosport International, when trade and media types head up to the NEC, so keep your eyes peeled for news and pictures, and I'll see you in the comments.
