Monday is over already? What happened? Where did it go? If it wasn't such an unpopular day, I would ask for it back already. Oh, well, I guess I must turn my attention to Tuesday instead. Here are some of the things we're talking about:

  • Toro Rosso made the most of their two days worth of press announcements by sacking Bourdais last week and announcing Not Seb this week. The rookie is also planning to continue his World Series by Renault racing, which is known as FR3.5. Can anyone explain that to me?
  • Whilst Ferrari have joined the ranks of those looking ahead to next year already, BMW have vowed to keep on pushing for 2009. Really? I'm all for sticking in the year you are in, but of all the teams to make the switch, I would have put money on BMW being at the top of the list. What can they possibly achieve from here?
  • Finally, I have revamped the Birthdays page on the wiki because the wonky calendar style was really irritating me. Hopefully I haven't missed anyone out, but if you're not on there, please add yourself so that when the time comes we can forget wish you a happy birthday.

That'll do it for now. It looks like the teams are starting to release their preview quotes for Hungary, so keep your eyes peeled for anything interesting. I'll see you in the comments.
