Of course today all our thoughts are with Massa, and we're hoping for more good news updates from the hospital. However, it is still race day and we should still enjoy what we can of the Hungarian Grand Prix. Here's what we're talking about at the moment:

  • Alguersuari did pretty well, no? The engine failure scuppered him a bit, but even he says the aim of the weekend is simply to finish the race. I guess the big question now is whether Bourdais would have done well with the new car updates.
  • The McLarens didn't manage to keep up their Free Practice pace, but they didn't do so badly either. Both qualified in the top ten, and with the added benefit of KERS (are they the only ones using it now?) they could make some progress today.
  • The other major question is what the weather will be like. So far we have seen really hot conditions, and also some cooler and more windy conditions as well. The temperatures will make all the difference in the race, so I can't wait to see how that will pan out too.

That's all for now. If you're watching the race, please join us in the live comments, and let us know how you're watching. If not, you can tune in to the digest later to get a full recap of the action. I'll see you in the comments.
