Sunday has arrived and it is race day in Australia. We were slightly confused by the fact that people were arriving at the circuit before we had even managed to get to bed, and when you add in a stupid daylight savings time change in the UK, we're not sure what time it is at all. Never mind, though, here are some things we're talking about:

  • Ollie has written a great post about the adjustable ride height concept. Yet again, we're faced with another loophole in the regulations, and it paints the Ferrari and Red Bull speed in a whole new light. I wonder if the FIA anticipated the number of concerns that would arise from banning refuelling - perhaps it's not as simple as they hoped.
  • Schumacher has asked the FIA for clarification on blocking, wondering if things have changed since he's been away. I'm not sure we've seen traffic issues like we did yesterday for a long time, so it's not just Schumi who is concerned. Pedro de la Rosa in particular made it his mission to get in everyone's way, so he was reprimanded. I dread to think what's going to happen in the race.
  • F1 Wolf has been posting loads and loads of pictures from his time at Melbourne - so far we have shots from Friday and Saturday. It's good to see some nice close ups of the liveries, and I might start using them as a reference.

That's all for now. We'll be recording a show later, but it won't be live as we're not quite ready for that yet. Soon! Don't forget to call in your thoughts about the race, though: 0121 28 87225. I'll see you in the comments.
