The news we were waiting for yesterday was not as exciting as one might have expected, as it wasn't really a surprise, was it? Nevertheless it has captured the imagination of many:

  • Pat isn't particularly impressed, putting it mildly. Ollie is reserving judgement until we have seen what Mr Todt can come up with. Bootneck is equally not happy about the appointment, whilst Dan takes a look at the challenges that face Jean for his presidency. Don't forget there is a breakout thread full of thoughts about the appointment, and we'd like to hear views.
  • We were all sad at the news that Dank was giving up his Red Bull focused blog, but fear not, he is still writing. This time the Motorsport Musings blog is taking a look at a wider range of subjects, starting with Loeb. Yay for blogging!
  • Finally, a couple of Sidepodupdates. Last night, we posted the long-awaited breakdown of where some of your very kind donations have gone. It was also good to get the latest Aside with Joe show posted, after a lot of hard work and swearing at software by Mr C.

That should keep you occupied for now, but let us know if you are doing anything more exciting we need to know about. As ever, I will see you in the comments.
