Over the hump of the week now, and we're heading towards the weekend. Still an entire Thursday to go through first though, and Thursday's are rubbish. Nevertheless, I'll be keeping an eye on F1 news to keep going. Here's what we've been talking about today:

  • What would the ex-Honda team livery look like if they are bought out by Richard Branson and his Virgin Group? We've had a couple of examples already, and if you're feeling creative you can leave them in the drop.
  • With testing drawing to a close in Bahrain today, the teams will be hoping to finish up what they've been working on. Toyota will probably be racking up the laps, BMW will need to find some speed, whilst Ferrari may need to work on their cooling issues.
  • FOTA have announced they'll be revealing the direction they want the sport to go in early next month, as they hold a press event. I didn't realise we were expecting anything from them, but apparently FOTA have finalised all their research and have a vision of the future. What might that hold, I wonder?

As ever, keep your comments coming. They don't have to be strictly about anything I've mentioned above, or about Formula 1, in fact. We just like to hear from you. I'll see you in the comments.
