It's October, a brand new month, and things are showing no signs of slowing down in Formula 1. In fact, it's all gearing up, as the championship could be over this weekend. There's plenty to be talked about, so here are some snippets:

  • Ferrari finally did the decent thing and put us all out of our misery. Alonso has been confirmed for three years at the team starting next year, with Raikkonen's contract coming to an early end. The driver market should really start hotting up now. There's a breakout thread available if you have thoughts on this topic.
  • There are new blogs aplenty, as RG sets up his third corner of the web, this time dedicated to one particular driver. No prizes for guessing who. Also Bootneck has been blogging his way through last month, with plenty of thoughts on the racing action.
  • In the podcast world, there's a new Digest Preview available for everyone looking to build up to Japan. We also released a Joe show in the early hours of yesterday morning - that may or may not have got lost amongst the Sidepodradio stuff. It's a good one, so make sure you check it out if you haven't already.

That'll do it for now. Let us know how your week is going, and how you're going to cope with the different timings for Japan. I'll see you in the comments.
