Apparently it is Apple Day today, and that is not to do with the iPod people, but more to do with apples and orchards. Once again, I don't know how you are supposed to celebrate these things, but I think a good apple crumble is on the cards. Meanwhile, F1 related stuff:

  • Yesterday's F1 Minute from a year ago (did you follow that?) is really quite intriguing. On the right hand side of the F1 Minute homepage is a link to the show a year ago, and yesterday's featured the news that BMW should be proud of what they've achieved, and Bernie was arguing with Canada. Things change, huh? Oh maybe not.
  • Williams are once again being particularly vocal about their desire not to see 14 teams on the grid. More than anything, they say they are worried about the space, particularly in the Monaco pitlane. On that point, I agree, but is that really what they are protesting about?
  • Bruno Senna has been talking about his future again, and says he's in contact with all the new teams bar US F1. It's also rumoured that he will have a test drive with Renault as soon as testing is allowed again.

That's all for now, I reckon. We're halfway through the week - how's it going for you? As ever, I will see you in the comments.
