It really was a slow news day yesterday, with just a glimpse of testing in Bahrain to keep us entertained. Let's hope for more today, but until then, here's what we've found to talk about:

  • KERS took another hit today, with Ferrari having a three hour delay in their testing programme to sort out a cooling problem. Williams also emerged and suggested they wouldn't run their flywheel device in Australia. If they won't, who will?
  • Organisers of the Singapore GP are holding a competition for winners to name three of the corners at the revised circuit this year. Now, we already did this sort of thing during the 2008 season, so would consider ourselves experts, but apparently the suggestions should be "punchy, have a strong local connection and are easy to pronounce." I'll have a think.
  • Also, don't forget that there's a 1986 Batracer game just waiting to kick off. We've had a few more joinees, but need a couple more people to sign up. If you enjoyed the last game, or missed out on that one and would like to have a go, sign up to Batracer now. The password is Bourdais, and there's lots of information on the wiki.

That'll do it for now. Fingers crossed we see the drivers in Bahrain packing in the laps again, so we can have plenty to talk about, and pictures to ogle. Until then, I'll see you in the comments.
