Yesterday went by without a single breakout thread, which means it must have been relatively quiet in the world of Formula 1. Suddenly, it is Friday, and the end of the week already, which is always a good thing. Here's what we've been talking about:

  • Kubica spoke out yesterday, saying he was basically waiting for the Renault hearing before deciding which team his future lies with. This, I think, is the best silly season trail we have so far: Kubica to Williams instead, taking Rosberg's place, who is heading on to Brawn. Are there other trails longer that I have missed?
  • If you're looking for a change of pace, I released our first Media Future Change podcast yesterday. It's only short, and if you're interested in anything to do with the media, or the future, or... change, then you might want to check it out.
  • Back to F1, though, Ari Vatanen announced his cabinet for his presidential campaign, and for once he wasn't drowned under Renault news. It still didn't emerge with much fanfare though, and I'm starting to worry the member clubs will have forgotten who he is!

That'll do it for today. Let us know what you've got planned for the weekend - aside from listening to 12 hours of Sidepodradio, of course. I'll see you in the comments.
