We're still coming down from the Race of Champions high, but now it is time to turn our attention back to Formula 1. There's more testing going on this week, so there should be plenty to keep our eye on, although it will no doubt be more of the same - not knowing who is actually fast, and who is just running 2008 rather than 2009 setups. Elsewhere:

  • Mosley has admitted that the current points system isn't exactly ideal and it may even have been a mistake to bring it in. However, he doesn't want to bring in a new points system without consulting the public, as he doesn't want to confuse everyone. This just sounds so out of character!
  • Hamilton missed out on the BBC Sports Personality of the Year award, and if you look at the screen shot used for the BBC video story, he doesn't look too happy about it. I bet he's just wishing they could have duelled at the RoC cause he was bound to have won.
  • Sebastien Loeb pipped DC to the Race of Champions trophy, which is really telling considering that Loeb was recently testing in the Red Bull. Was this just a demonstration of Loeb's multi-car skill, or would he have outshone DC in Formula 1 machinery as well?

Please feel free to share any thoughts or news you come across today, and don't feel limited by what I've mentioned above. I'll see you in the comments.
