We have arrived at Tuesday, and my first job is to remind you that the deadline for the season review submissions is up! Technically it was yesterday, but I forgot to remind you, so I've extended it by a day. If you haven't already, and want to call in your thoughts on the season just past, there are more details here. Now, let's get on with the good stuff:

  • Trulli and Kovalainen were confirmed at Lotus yesterday. It happened in the early hours UK time, and must be our earliest breakout thread ever. I find the driver selection odd, but still, it's good for familiar faces to retain seats.
  • Massa is going to get back behind the wheel of the F2007, with demo tyres on. Felipe said he wanted to get back behind the wheel of an F1 car before the end of the year, so he's grateful to Ferrari for giving him the opportunity.
  • The Schumacher rumours continue to be fuelled with Ferrari reported as saying they would not stand in the seven times world champ's way... at the moment. That doesn't mean it would be a straightforward switch to Mercedes of course, but I suppose it is one less barrier to entry for him.

That'll do it for now. Don't forget the Advent Calendar is still ongoing, and today, I know for a fact we are finally moving away from the Hungarian GP. Hoorah! I will see you in the comments.
