Monday heralds the start of a new week, and the start of the 2010 season proper as the first team launch gets underway. Mercedes will be showing off some new stuff in Stuttgart, and there'll be a thread along later to discuss it all. For now, though, here's what we're talking about:

  • We're all sorted on the Fantasy Racers front now, as there was a bit of a confusion over what the Sidepodcast league was going to be called. We're now known as the Panda Racing 2010 league, so if you haven't already, head on over to Fantasy Racers, set up your team, and follow this link to join the league.
  • We released an F1 Debrief podcast yesterday, another one that was recorded off-air, and it was actually an unscheduled one. We had a lot to discuss though, and the show features a brand new advert for the daily threads made by my own hands. I'm not good at the music but hopefully it fits in the podcast quite well. Also, don't miss the outtake on the drop.
  • Nico Rosberg has stuck his neck out and said he's not afraid of Schumacher. Speaking to the L'Equipe paper (and assuming my French is up to it), he said he plans to win in Bahrain and he's not afraid to stand up against the seven times world champion. Go Nico! (Another thing I never thought I would say about him.)

That will do for now. We're also expecting some news about US F1's first driver announcement, so it will be a busy day for breakout threads! I'll see you in the comments.
