The last day of June has rolled around (already!?) and it is Ralf Schumacher's birthday today. Yes, him, the other Schumacher. I wonder what he will be doing to celebrate his 34th birthday. Anyway, here are some of the things we've been talking about:

  • Mario Theissen has become the next team boss to admit that the overtaking rules need some work. We can all see it, obviously, but it means a little bit more coming from the people who help to shape the rules in the first place. He does add that the fact the field has closed up so much is unexpected and has made things a lot more excited. Qualifying, yes, Mario. The race, not so much.
  • Following on from Heikki's triumphant attempt at the Ask the Expert quiz on F1.com, Adrian Sutil steps up to have a go. He's not so hot on getting the correct answers, as Heikki managed to top the field of drivers asked so far, whilst Sutil falls way down the bottom of the order. Sounds familiar, no?
  • I was thinking, you know those games where you take the best parts of various people to make an über-person? Who would make up your ideal driver? We're talking qualifying skill, overtaking ability, temperament, helmet colours, anything that makes up a driver. What do you reckon? I'm giving it some thought, let me know what you come up with.

That'll do it for now, I reckon. Feel free to discuss how quickly June has gone for you, I know it has absolutely flown for me. As ever, I will see you in the comments.
