Hello my pretties, how are we on this fine Friday? I can't tell you how happy I am that it is Friday, as I am getting to the end of two rather tough weeks in the office. Nothing but a weekend full of Franck ahead of me, as well. But more of that in a moment. First up, here are some of the things we're talking about:

  • I wrote a post yesterday, picking up on some of the most recent comments from Ferrari chief Luca di Montezemolo. We know already that this man isn't shy about saying what he thinks, or simply trying to stir up trouble, but this time, it's all about the backmarkers. We've had loads of great comments pondering whether the cars at the back of the grid in 2010 are just too slow or not. The general consensus is that everyone has to start somewhere, but why not let us know what you think?
  • I saw a tweet yesterday highlighting some great pages on Viva F1 detailing all you need to know about each of the circuits on the calendar. Some great statistics and pictures to fill you in. Have a look at Europe as that is the next stop on our global tour this season.
  • The latest victim of F1.com's Secret Life series is Nico Rosberg. The interviews delve into things the drivers might rather you didn't know, although Nico says he hasn't cried at a film since he was seven years old. I find that hard to believe. Even I have cried at a film since then and I have a heart of stone.

That should do it for now. As ever, we'll be discussing the World Cup today in the dedicated thread. They will also be selecting the draw for Wimbledon today, so we'll find out who all our favourite tennis players will face in the coming weeks. Franck is racing this weekend in the Superleague Formula. It looks as though it might be another weekend of sport for us! So, I will see you in the very busy comments.
