We have reached Friday at long last, and it is, of course, FIA elections day. I have no doubt it will be impossible to avoid it, and we may even have another breakout thread at long last! Still, I would like to reserve the daily as my F1 Happy Place, thank you.

  • The first most important thing to mention is in answer to a question Adie asked yesterday. If, as is looking very likely right now, Mr Todt becomes FIA President, Sidepodcast will continue. You have nothing to fear.
  • It appears that Lucas di Grassis is intent on getting a seat next year, and not content with talking to his current employers Renault for a 2010 drive, he's also been in deep discussions with new team Manor. This news will make Amy and myself very happy, I'm sure.
  • RG has written about the decision Toyota have to make regarding Timo Glock driving for them in Abu Dhabi. He's missed two races already and as yet there's no word on whether he'll be fit and back in the car for the final race of the season.

That'll do it for now. Mr C will have an Aside with Joe show up at some point in the early hours, no doubt, so keep an eye out for that. I'll see you in the comments.
