Here we are, halfway through the week, and the news has been pouring forth over the last few days. What else can there be to come over the next few? Here are some of the things we're talking about:

  • Mark Webber was at Paul Ricard yesterday, testing out the new GP3 car. I hadn't realised there was going to be a feeder series into GP2, the feeder series to F1. Still, Webber had a go around the track and seemed to have a good time. I bet he can't wait to get back behind his F1 car instead, though.
  • Yesterday we heard that Glock has signed up to Manor GP, and the story has it's own breakout thread with plenty of interesting thoughts about why he would make that decision. Still, at least he has a drive for next year, unlike many of the other drivers we are keeping our eye on.
  • Elsewhere, Luca di Montezemolo has suggested that he doesn't want to head up FOTA for too much longer, as he has a regular day job to attend to as well. Does this mean that someone else will take his place? Who would that be? Or will FOTA start falling apart - if they aren't already?

That'll do it for now, enough to keep us going for another day. Let us know what you're up to and how you're getting through the week, and I'll see you in the comments.
