Apparently, not only is it the first day of a brand new month, it is also International Children's Day. With that in mind, we should be very aware of the cry "Won't somebody think of the children?" which has been used a couple of times in the comments already this week. Here are some of the other things we are discussing:

  • Alex Wurz and his new team Superfund are set to make a heroic entrance into F1 - if they are selected, of course. The team have funding in place but aren't getting anything organised until they get the nod. It will be good to see Mr Wurz back in the sport, although I can't see him in the team principal role. Mr C thinks he might be quite good as the boss, however.
  • It's also Martin Brundle's birthday today, which is only really interesting because I was thinking about Alex Brundle and his performance in F2. I kept an eye on the results, and find myself interested in Brundle Jr, and Natacha Gachnang, and that is pretty much it. Anyone else catch it, interested in it, got a fave or already? Or couldn't care less?
  • BMW have confirmed in their Turkey preview quotes (oooh, is it that time already?) that they'll be running the double decker diffuser. Is it going to make any difference for them? Or have they scuppered their own season this early on?

That'll do it for now. The replay of the live streaming show we did last night is up if you feel like watching, or the edited show should be out this evening. Don't forget to vote on the Circuit Cup semi final, and I'll see you in the comments.
