It's Thursday once again. So far this year, I haven't found Thursdays too bad, but I can only imagine the bad vibe is waiting round the corner for me. To battle it, it turns out it is National Hug Day today. I'm not that good at hugging, but make sure you celebrate the day for me, and give someone a big ol' hug. Anyway, on to F1 things:

  • There's been a nice comment over on F1 Minute, from Mike of Sweet F1. I am already married, of course, and I am also slightly concerned about the word "us" used in the proposal, however, I can certainly manage a link or two. It looks like the site is on hiatus at the moment during the off season, but it will be racing time once again before you know it.
  • Whilst we're linking to things, the Forza Toro Rosso blog has an interesting post about the team's decision to sack Bourdais, pondering whether they were right to do such a thing. The post is generating quite the discussion, and I just know we all have opinions on the subject as well. Add yours!
  • Finally, RG wrote a pretty awesome guest post for us yesterday, taking a closer look at how easy it is to make up news on the internet. Although an ultimately harmless experiment, RG's made up headline actually got passed on as fact, so it's definitely worth reading how that turned out.

That's all for now, let us know what you're up to today, and how the weather is where you are, and I will see you in the comments.
