Our weekend has been ruined by the hunt for a mixer that actually works, and we are completely behind schedule. But that's no different from normal, really! Here's some of the things we're talking about at the moment:

  • Dank's got all the info you need on testing. Who's turning up, when and where. With just a few teams in attendance, there's less room for comparison, but it looks like it's Brawn GP vs McLaren for a couple more days yet.
  • Ferrari aren't at the test, and Domenicali is suggesting that their performance is exactly where they want it to be, the team are all in the right head space, it's just a matter of sorting out reliability. That will be their downfall, if any.
  • Toyota have finally admitted that they were thinking about their future in F1, and that Panasonic's continued sponsorship was a major factor in them staying in the sport. Yamashina reckons F1 is good value, but they need to start winning now. We could have told him that!

That's it for today. Keep your fingers crossed for a podcast later today, as we continue to work through studio troubles. As we do, I'll see you in the comments.
