It's the second day of Autosport International - another trade day - and if the headlines are anything like yesterday, we'll be tearing our hair out by the end of proceedings! Nevertheless, despite our reservations about the concept of trade shows at all, it continues, and we will keep our eye on what's happening. Meanwhile, here's what we're talking about:

  • Yesterday was Thursday, and that means Thursday Thoughts. Although it is now Friday, I wanted to give the blogging project a quick shout out as we have run out of lead bloggers to set the questions now. It's a great thing to take part in, you just have to set a nice, easy question and see what answers come flowing in. Let us know if you'd like to take part!
  • Schumacher has finally had the weather behind him and the GP2 bosses say he is right on pace for the final day of testing at Jerez. Schumacher himself says he's feeling really ready to bring on the F1 challenge, after being completely comfortable testing this week.
  • Finally, I suppose it has to be mentioned, the Castrol Rankings nonsense. I wrote about it briefly on Franck's behalf, whilst Gavin took a much closer look. Coming from someone who analyses numbers so well, the post is well worth a read. Yesterday I said let's never mention it again. I think I'll go back to that now the plugging is done!

That's all for now, it's Friday, so it must be time to start gearing up for the weekend. Let us know what you're up to, particularly if you're heading up to Autosport International, and as ever, I will see you in the comments.
