Today is Tom Walkinshaw's birthday, and if you're like me and feel like it's a familiar name without recollecting why - he's a racer/team manager. Mr Walkinshaw purchased the Arrows team and bought Damon Hill on board and together they scored a podium. Meanwhile, here are some of the more up to date things we're talking about:

  • Of course the main topic of conversation is Mercedes, and we have a breakout thread for that very subject. Plus, our excellent guest writer Stuart offered up a fascinating insight into what might be going on in terms of driver selection.
  • As we have very little new information to go on with the Mercedes deal, let's look at other teams. Mr C turned his attention to another team on the grid, and how they might be aligning themselves in the future. Joe, though, wrote a post with a mention of Franck. It's mean to get my hopes up about the lovely Frenchman, but I like FKM getting column inches.
  • It was a story from last week, but F1 Wolf has looked into the story of the potential GP in the Czech Republic in much more detail. Wolf looks at the potential area of the track, and some background of the organisers.

That's all for now. Make sure you let us know how Tuesday is working out for you, and I will see you in the comments.
