It is little Anthony Davidson's birthday today, and as it turns out, he's over 30. Perhaps we should stop calling him little Ant now. It's also Jordan Allen's birthday, but I already gave him a mention in the daily that was really a weekly. Happy birthday though Jordan! Meanwhile, here are some things we're talking about:

  • Mr C managed to break through the great firewall of China to chat with Joe for the latest Aside with Joe podcast. There's plenty of great stuff in there, but one thing sticks out for me. I want to sit on a yacht in Monaco chatting to Joe. Who wouldn't!?
  • The talk about tyres continues, only this time we're looking ahead to who is going to supply for 2011. Michelin have been the name bandied around recently, but now it looks like Cooper Avon could also step up. I've never heard of them before, and it looks as though the Spanish GP is a self-imposed deadline for things to be confirmed.
  • Thanks to Lady Snowcat and Kathi who have been keeping us updated on Kimi's progress through the rally in Turkey. He's currently in sixth and about 4 minutes behind the leader. I don't know if that's good or not but it's certainly better than crashing into a tree. Go Kimi!
  • Finally, Mr C is loving the new watch from Bernie and his people: the F1™ King Power watch. You have to be careful how you say that, you really do.

That should do it for now. Enjoy the racing today, and you know I will see you in the comments.
