Halfway through the week, and apparently it is Administrative Professionals' Day. According to Wikipedia, this is a holiday celebrated in the States to recognise the work of receptionists and the like. Don't tell me that Sidepodcast never teaches you anything. Anyway, on with the F1 stuff:

  • It looks like FOTA are struggling, as we have long suspected they would. At least they are admitting that things aren't as rosy as they once were, instead of pretending that everything is fine minutes before they break up for good. It also seems everyone involved still wants to try and maintain good relationships which makes for a good foundation to work from.
  • Bourdais says that he's just not comfortable within the STR4 and it's not working for his style of driving. Hmm. I'm sure we've heard this before somewhere. Oh yea, that's right, last year! It's no big secret that Le Seb and I have fallen out, but I can't be the only one that thinks this is just a big, fat excuse.
  • It is another day of note for Mr C, as he has yet another picture published. Okay, this one is more the online variety, but just as important as any page 22 goings on. Ollie at Blog F1 has selected a pic for his weekly caption competition, and it is one of Mr C's from Silverstone 2007. Go and have a look now, and leave a caption.
  • Finally, there are two excellent rants in the blogosphere to keep you occupied. Scott's a little bit annoyed that Piquet is still around, whilst RG would rather not see any more rain... for a while, at least.

That'll do it for today. Keep the conversation flowing, it must be time to start looking ahead to Bahrain now, and I will see you in the comments.
