Usually, I would have a look at Wikipedia and dig out what kind of special day it is today so that I can share a random fact with you good people. I don't need to do that today, because I know what day it is - it is an important day in the Sidepodworld. It is... Flibster's birthday!!! Happy Birthday! Anyway, moving on, here is some F1 stuff:

  • Sam Michael says that Williams' performance can only be measured on their position in the constructor's championship, and they are sixth. But he says he doesn't believe they are the sixth fastest car, he reckons they are better than that. I wasn't convinced they were even that far up!
  • Ross Brawn has been pondering the situation F1 is in at the moment, and says that all parties need to learn from it. I am thinking perhaps what they really need to do is sort. it. out.
  • Finally, Alonso is still touting the party line that they are working hard and hoping to turn things around for the rest of the season. He does mention that the double diffuser should have taken 15 weeks to introduce but they managed to bring it to the car in 5. So, they really are working hard!

That'll do it for now. I can't think there is anything else to talk about today, nothing special happening at all, it is not an important day. Therefore, I'll see you in the comments.
