Uh oh, it's that most worrying day of the year - April Fool's Day. There will be nothing to see here, I'm not really a huge fan of the tricksy business. Instead, I will promote the first day of the Jordan Rally instead. I'm assuming we're expecting to see Kimi there, as Lady Snowcat has headed on over to watch proceedings. Let's hope he gets a good result. Now, what else are we talking about?

  • It was an incredibly busy day on Sidepodcast yesterday, with not one but two guest posts. In response to the ongoing discussion regarding regulation changes, where F1 is headed, and Steven's epic post on his view of the ideal formula, KerbRider shared some of his own thoughts with us. Then Alex also had his own radical solution to try and solve some of the problems (although possibly creating plenty more along the way).
  • In part, these posts were a response to Mr C's thoughts on the prominence of tyre strategy so far this year. You must go into this post with the right frame of mind though - it is about tyre strategy vs refuelling strategy, not the existing refuelling ban debate. However, the fabulous debate in the comments meandered among all the topics, so feel free to add your own thoughts!
  • Finally, to start moving forward to the Malaysian race, we have all the information you could possibly need about the upcoming weekend and of course, F1 Digest is here to run through some vital statistics, what happened last year, and what the drivers think might happen this year.

Phew. I'm assuming that Thursday is going to be a little bit quieter, although I do believe there is a Joe Show on the cards somewhere. Keep your eyes (ears?) peeled for that, and I will see you in the comments.
