Sakon Yamamoto on the deck

We've been live commenting Santa as he makes his way across the globe, and that doesn't stop now. He's just passed through the UK, and is heading towards the Americas. The chances of there being any real F1 news today is slim, but that doesn't stop us trying!

  • Karthikeyan has been moaning about his association with Force India, or lack of it. To be clear, he wants the world to know that he's not interested in the team and never has been, so whether Mallya wants him there or not, he doesn't care. Good to know, although it seems a harsh reaction to a simple link with a team.
  • Apparently, Domenicali's next stop on the cost-cutting tour is to reconsider Schumi's contract. 2009 will go ahead as planned, but then there will be some serious cost/benefit analysis to be done for 2010.
  • Mosley has said that he still doesn't intend to continue as president of the FIA next year, although his final decision will be made in June. He has mentioned that it will be hard to find someone to fill his shoes. But will it though?

As mentioned above, there's little in the way of F1 news, so feel free to share what you are doing with your day, whether you are celebrating, what presents you get, all of the above. We'll be around most of the day (unless we're sleeping) and I'll see you in the comments.

Merry Christmas to all in Sidepodtown!
