Ah, today it is Jenson Button's birthday. The man is World Champion, has lots of money and a beautiful girlfriend, is facing the "fresh challenge" that he so desperately craved for 2010, and is now turning the big 3-0. What do you get the man who has everything?? Meanwhile, here's some of the things we're talking about:

  • Excellent cartoonist Stuart Taylor has returned after the success of his original guest post with a follow up - taking a closer look at how young Nelson Piquet Jr might fare once he crosses the Atlantic for the NASCAR series. Don't forget you can rate posts now, so make sure you select the required amount of stars once you've enjoyed the cartoon.
  • The first F1 Debrief of 2010 was released yesterday, a slightly muted affair as we couldn't do it live, but I hope it is still worth it. We cover all manner of topics, catching up on the state of Formula 1 after what was pretty much just a week's worth of the off season.
  • Opinion is mixed on the success of Autosport International, but I do like their round up post of the big stories and their posted interviews. (Ignore the rankings bit as the top major story. Eh-hem.) Dank has written about his distaste of the event, whilst Scott tells us about his grand day out. I believe Pat is planning a post too, so perhaps he'll have the deciding vote?

That should do it for now. I hope your week has started out okay, and I will see you in the comments.
