We are at Tuesday already, which means it's time for another daily post, and that means more links and news to keep you going. The good news is that this weekend's Debrief is edited, so if you haven't already, you can hear the condensed version. Meanwhile, here's what's going on:

  • Martin Whitmarsh has said that of all the team, he feels like he really needed this win more than most. Having taken over from Ron, Whitmarsh has seen the McLaren's lapped and slow, so he's probably right. It's about time he got his moment of glory on the podium.
  • Valencia have asked the FIA to think of the fans with regards to the Renault penalty. They know that a vast majority of their visitors will only be there to see a certain Spanish driver, and if he's not racing, it's going to seriously affect the turnout. The FIA won't listen, but will Bernie?
  • Finally, don't forget about Sidepodradio! I have written another update with more details, and if you're not involved yet, why not? There is plenty you can do from a simple phone call or donation, to turning up on the day and commenting, to hosting a show. You'll find a role that suits you.

That'll do it for now, I reckon. Keep us up to date with any news you spot over the next 24 hours, and as ever, I'll see you in the comments.
