There's another launch today, as McLaren get ready to unveil their 2010 car. They're streaming at a much more reasonable hour of 11am UK time, so keep an eye for a breakout thread later in the morning. Meanwhile, in much more important news, it's Jackie's birthday today, so many happy returns for the day! Hope it's a good one. Here are some of the things we're talking about:

  • Apparently, the organisers of the Singapore GP are considering making some changes to their circuit for the 2011 season, particularly the area where a certain Mr Piquet crashed a certain Renault. I don't mind if the track changes too much but I can't believe Singapore are considering it, whilst Abu Dhabi believe their circuit is just fine and dandy.
  • Yesterday was Thursday, and with such a day comes some real thinking. Dylan from Triple League Racing gave us the question and it was a good one. Read all about how I would change the calendar, and yes, I know it's not a particularly popular idea. Mr C and I are weird like that.
  • Some pictures of the work going on at Silverstone emerged recently, and it already looks a million times more productive than Donington ever did. It's always worrying to see a track with diggers and earth littered everywhere, but I get the feeling Silverstone will come through this one unscathed. There are some pictures to be seen over on Autosport.

That'll do it for now, I have a feeling it's going to be a busy day, but even so, let us know what you're up to and what you've got planned for the weekend. I'll see you in the comments.
