It's Thursday now, which is never a good thing, but more importantly, it is Waterloo Day. This is to do with the battle and not to be confused with April 6, which is the Abba day. Anyway, here are some F1 related things to talk about:

  • Nick has written his first couple of posts on a new F1 blog - Racing Politics. What a great time to start up a politics blog, there is loads to discuss! It's a good first post, and the header picture is pretty nice too.
  • Former British champions have been talking up all things British, with Mansell suggesting that Button might be the best thing since sliced bread, whilst Hill is sure that Formula 1 is going to miss Silverstone. Well, yes, it will, but he would say that, wouldn't he?
  • Joe has a nice and cynical take on some of the latest FIA/FOTA happenings, which naturally appeals to us if only because it has the words conspiracy theory in there.
  • Finally, Mr C pointed out a really good video from the Beeb with Jenson Button, in which the championship leader takes part in 'Fastermind', a take on the good ol' question and answer format. Highly recommended.

That'll do for now. Please keep your great comments coming, we love to hear from you. I do, especially on Thursdays, they make my day. I'll see you in the comments.
