It is Thursday and whilst that is usually a bad day around Sidepodcast Towers, it has been tempered during this off season with the ever-excellent Thursday Thoughts. Today it is Gavin's turn to host the question, so keep an eye on his blog for your prompt this week. Now onto some F1 things we're talking about:

  • Massa returned to the track this week, getting behind the wheel of the F2007 again, to continue his training for 2010. He completed just under 100 laps over two days, and afterwards said that although it was a different car, he felt comfortable in there, his driving style hadn't changed and he was still pretty quick.
  • Scott has the opportunity of a lifetime, working at the fabled Classic Team Lotus on a voluntary basis at the moment. Some excellent work experience, some great sights to be seen, and famous faces to be met! He's blogged about his first few days on the job and it sounds like an amazing time already.
  • Of course the big news of yesterday was Renault's announcement, but I was very intrigued to read about Kubica and his manager's concerns over the changes. It makes perfect sense that he signed up for one thing and now it's different he has questions. I am interested in how this one works out.

That'll do it for now, assuming we all get through Thursday together, then Friday is just around the corner and that's always good times. I'll see you in the comments.
