This daily post is slightly late as I was caught up watching the Red Bull Crashed Ice final. We also live commented it, along with the 12 Hours of Sebring. You know, we are an F1 site, honest. It's Sunday, and with no racing this weekend, it seems like a pretty quiet time in terms of F1 news. Nevertheless, here are some of the things we're talking about:

  • Preview quotes for the Australian GP are starting to appear already, and the Hispania ones are very sweet. The team are simply aiming for one car to get to the finish, not even both. That is probably the least ambitious thing we have heard all year. It's completely fitting though, and I appreciate the team's honesty in terms of what they can achieve.
  • Joe has what he calls A Mish-Mash of News including discussion of Natacha Gachnang, and how the FIA will get new teams into the sport for 2011.
  • Ferrari allowed their three development drivers to have a go in the F2008 at Fiorano during a test session on Friday. Apparently there will be five such tests available for the young drivers and I think it's good to see Ferrari taking the approach of encouraging young talent, rather than hoping a driver who hasn't raced for ten years might be up to the job. Eh-hem.

That's all for now, I hope you're having a fabulous weekend, I know I am. As ever, I will see you in the comments.
