Hello, hello, only me. It's Saturday, and that can only mean one thing... time for me to write the daily. I swapped shifts with James last week and then forgot my rescheduled post, so thanks to Mr C for covering. It's always fun to test him, particularly as he is so busy with the iPad this week. Anyway, I am rambling, so I will move on to F1 related goodness:

  • Brad Spurgeon has written an interesting article about the health of F1 at the moment, with a particular note about the possibility of increasing the number of race weekends, but reducing the size of a race weekend (i.e. dropping Fridays). This appeals very much to us, who have always said that more races would be too much work for everyone involved, plus it means a Mon-Fri job wouldn't interfere with race enjoyment.
  • There's a new article on Autosport (subscribers only, sorry) from Glenn Dunbar, photographer for Williams who we have used many times, and it's a fascinating insight into the mind of an F1 snapper. He talks about how he will come back year after year to try and get a shot, and as he is focusing on Turkey, adds that there are no classic spots around the circuit. Indeed.
  • Steven has pointed out some photos from Adam Cooper of Sato's helmet for the Indy race. He's got an old Lotus on one side and a new Lotus on the other. It's very green! Photos are here, here and here.
  • A couple of days ago, RG published this round up on Triple League Racing, taking a quick look at each team and summing up their season so far. He also reviews the races and the regulations to see what is working and what isn't.

That's all for now, I hope you'll be joining us in the live comments over the weekend, we'll be there for each session in Turkey. As I say every time, I'll see you in the comments.
