It is Monday once more and we are thrown headlong into another week. With the extended break before Germany, though, we are not counting down to a race weekend, but rather another 'off' weekend. Still, as it is only Monday, that would be looking quite far ahead, wouldn't it? Here are some things going on at the moment:

  • Ferrari have admitted that they could very well be shifting their attention to the 2010 season, which isn't exactly a surprise given how poor they are doing at the moment. The only problem is, no one really knows what 2010 is going to be, so it's a bit early to be puting all your eggs in that basket, isn't it?
  • Apparently the continued building works at Donington are set to resume in August, which seems like an awful long time away. Now that they have all the necessary paperwork in place, and Gillett keeps saying financing shouldn't be a problem, why can't they get started now?
  • We recorded a fun Debrief yesterday with lots of feedback and Fantasy Racers stats, plus all our findings from the Shell visit at Silverstone. The live show can be replayed here, or you can tune into the podcast version here.

That'll do it for now. I'll be tuned in to the tennis all day, so if anyone else is watching, please join me in a spot of live commenting the Wimbledon action. Feel free to ignore the tennis-shaped talk if you like, though, and discuss anything that comes to mind. I'll see you in the comments.
