Apparently today is the "International Day of Families" and this year's theme is "Challenges in a Changing World." Nice and fitting, as we heard this week about Felipe Baby actually having a baby. Anyway, here's some of the things we're talking about:

  • It's the big pow wow today, as the FIA and FOTA go head to head to discuss the 2010 regulations, and Bernie Ecclestone sticks his oar in as well. There's no knowing whether we'll hear anything tomorrow or not, but at least the debate isn't dragging on and they're getting on with trying to sort things out.
  • In two very different news items, I read that Lewis Hamilton hasn't given up on the title challenge yet, and that he tips Button for the win this year. I'm not sure how you can do both, and I'm not sure who to believe. Nevertheless, that Hamiltonometer is swinging well. I am going to keep using that until it catches on, by the way.
  • Button's signed up to do some running and stuff in London during the summer break in August. I don't know about you, but my idea of a summer holiday isn't participating in a triathlon around our nation's capital, even if it is for charity. Good on him, though.

That should keep you going for now. I imagine there'll be plenty to talk about today, but we'll see. I'll be popping in and out of the comments, so I might see you there.
