Here we are then, another Monday is upon us. Don't forget that if you would like the chance to write a daily post at some point in the future, then the option is there! I am taking volunteers for a series of guest written daily posts, and it's a good excuse to plug your own blog, or links that you like. We've had a great response so far, but there's always room for more.

  • It seemed to be the weekend for F1 visiting NASCAR as both Vettel and Kovi attended the race. Vettel was particularly outspoken about things F1 could learn from the sport, highlighting the spectacle that fans get, both visiting and on TV.
  • F1 Wolf has some rather stunning and you might say amusing photos of the Macau Grand Prix, which didn't exactly get off to a great start at all. Mr C and I both looked at the video of the start and wondered if David Coulthard had got in the car by mistake. Oops, sorry DC.
  • In Sidepodscience news, the Large Hadron Collider was relaunched on Friday and is apparently doing a lot better than it did first time round, in terms of research and stuff. Clearly I don't know what I'm talking about, but I know it hasn't killed us all. We did have quite a bad live show last night though... Hmm. Anyway, the original and best Big Picture has some great photos of the LHC if you haven't seen them already.

That's all for now. After two days off last week, I'm back at work and probably faced with piles of paperwork to sort through. Nevertheless I will see you in the comments.
