Friday at last, and the massive news week I predicted seemed to come to nothing. However, there were plenty of things to discuss yesterday, that will keep us going through today.

  • It looks like the drivers will be paying the superlicence fees after all. It's not really a surprise, of course, the chances of a strike were pretty small. However, it does make me wonder what all the fuss was about? They must have known it would make no difference?
  • In fugly news, Bridgestone have decided green is the colour of choice to mark the soft tyres from the hards. Without grooves to play with on the new slicks, we're getting green markings round the sidewalls. It's not pretty. But then, what about the new cars is?
  • Also, don't forget to read Mr Roy's latest guest post about a certain Bernd Rosemeyer. Always a fascinating look into the depths of F1's history. If that's not enough for you, Ollie has a well-written post on Elio de Angelis that is also worth a read.

That should do it for today. Don't forget to let us know if you're doing anything super-exciting over the weekend, and equally you can let us know if you're not. I will see you in the comments.
