We have reached Tuesday, and as mentioned in this weekend's show, it is Jeremy's girlfriend Zoe's birthday today. Happy birthday Zoe! It's also Valentino Rossi's birthday today, although I believe he is older than our Zoe. I wonder if it is nice to have a birthday near to Valentine's Day or if it has a similar effect as the Christmas birthday - just one set of celebrations. Anyway, here are some F1 related things:

  • There wasn't an enormous amount of news yesterday, with most people seemingly focused on what the weather will be doing at the next test. Autosport reported that the weather is expected to be bad, whilst Ferrari tweeted that they would prefer to be somewhere a bit warmer (a bit more Bahrain shaped?) Clearly they've forgotten what happened last year.
  • Christine's Rankings updated yesterday with a few new entrants on the list. Already, I'm planning some of the adjustments to next week's rankings. It doesn't take long to fall out of my favour, let me tell you that much! Meanwhile, Gavin has also blogged some rankings, with added graph goodness, plus percentages and a scary formula!
  • It's about time I promoted the next section of my F1 story: Life in the Fast Lane - Part 4. You get to vote on the outcome of each section, until we reach number ten, so make sure you head on over and submit your vote if you haven't already. Alex has mentioned that so far he has disagreed with each outcome, and my mother has said the same thing as well. The only way you can change it is by voting!

That will do for now, I think. Just time for a quick congratulations to Pat W for passing his exams, and I will see you in the comments.
