We're into Tuesday already, and that means just minutes after finishing up the F1 podcast goodness for the weekend in Valencia, teams are already producing their preview quotes for Spa. Not exactly easing us back in gently after the summer break. Anyway, here are some things to ponder:

  • Statistics ahoy, as Gavin spent a good amount of time working on this blog post to compare Barrichello and Hamilton throughout the race on Sunday. When Whitmarsh tells us they didn't have the pace to win without the pit stop blunder, is he telling the truth? Gavin knows all. Also, over on the Pitlane Fanatic blog, there's a great School Report for Luca Badoer.
  • Jake Humphrey has written a roundup of the weekend's coverage, and how things went down from their side of the camera. It's an interesting read, but I'm not sure I agree with the praise of EJ. But then I never do. Still, Jake promises more to come in the way of pictures soon.
  • Turning to Spa, then, as the teams are already doing, and Red Bull will be hoping for better things. They seemed a bit downbeat after the race, which is understandable. Dank has posted his Belgium Preview, and assesses the teams chances for the upcoming weekend.

That should keep you busy for now. Let us know what you're up to, and whether you're totally over Valencia and looking forward to Spa, or if you'd prefer more time to digest what happened at the weekend. Either way, I'll see you in the comments.
