Hello everybody, I'm back for the second time this week to bring you your daily dose of goodness. Double Christine this week, aren't you all lucky? Although there's no racing, there's still plenty going on that we can talk about - and no, I don't mean the golf. (Sorry, RG). Here are a couple of the things on our minds:

  • The big question on everyone's lips at the moment is: what on earth is going on at Hispania? Fresh from booting Bruno out of the team for a weekend, they've decided he can return whilst Chandhok gets to be a spectator instead. Yamamoto gets another turn behind the wheel, which is weird, because... he wasn't that good. Mr C has more on the blog, please let us know what you think of this messy situation.
  • We are onto the third matchup of the Character Cup already and so far it has been a ridiculously close run thing. Who would have thought Alonso would be beaten by Petrov? Or that it would be so even between Hulkenberg and Buemi? Anyway, today we're voting on two Brazilians - di Grassi and Barrichello. I feel this one won't be as close and all I can say is phew!
  • A little bit of self-promotion now - I spruced up my Twitter account with some lovely purple paint, and have also blogged about the process on my personal blog. It's also worth repeating that the fabulous Anthony Davidson is on Twitter now, and has actually been tweeting. Lovely stuff.

That should do it for now, it's Saturday, the start of the weekend, so I hope you are having a good one. Let us know what you are up to and how you plan to spend your Sunday now that Franck has been kicked out of Superleague. Eh-hem, I promised myself I wouldn't go into that... See you in the comments!
