Time is ticking onwards, and I have spotted a lot of people starting to get restless and impatient for the season to start. It's so close now, though, and we have waited so long, a few more days isn't going to do any harm.

  • The FIA have published the final entry list for the 2009 season, and there's just a couple of tweaks. Brawn have moved down and the Ferrari boys seem to have swapped over. Do you think Massa had a bit of a moan?
  • Raikkonen reckons that he is ten times more comfortable in the new than he was in last year's machine. He doesn't want to make any predictions about the upcoming season but is feeling more confident than this time in 2008. That's a good start to the season for the Finn, because we know a lot of last year's problems were an unsuitable car.
  • Martin Brundle is not afraid of making predictions, though, and the BBC commentator has his money on Renault, and specifically Alonso, for success this year. Pat Symonds is also determined to win a couple of races this year, so if all this talk translates to success out on track, we're looking at a Renault resurgance!

That's about it for now, please feel free to veer off topic if you've got something to say. That's what the Daily threads are for. As ever, I'll see you in the comments.
