It's so close you can almost feel it, we're starting to get atmospheric pictures from the Sidepodcommunity on the ground in Australia. There's just one more day before things kick off, if you can count tomorrow as a full day. Meanwhile, here's what we've been discussing:

  • Two reserve drivers were revealed yesterday, with DC signed up for RBR and STR until poor Hartley can get his superlicence sorted. Meanwhile, Davidson will be the backup for Brawn GP. The BBC are losing their drivers all over the place, aren't they?
  • He's plugged it twice in the comments already, so I thought I'd save him coming back and plugging it again. Alex has a predictions game over on Sofa F1 that Mr C signed up for, and somehow I have been talked into it as well. It looks like fun, just a guessing game at the moment, of course. If you're interested, head on over to make your championship predictions.
  • Don't forget that if you've got a few minutes, you can post a comment with your short summaries for the F1 Digest - Australia Preview show. There's more info available here, and all I can reiterate for now is the shorter the better.

That'll do it for now. Just think, the next Daily post is due to go up about an hour before the live commenting gets underway. That's a nice feeling, isn't it? There's more info about our schedule for Australia here, and as ever, I will see you in the comments.
