We are at the very last day of August now, and for those of us in the UK that means a Bank Holiday. We are still recovering from what was an excellent Belgian GP, though, so I don't imagine we will be up to anything exciting. Here's what we're talking about though:

  • Jake Humphrey of the BBC has written up his experiences over the weekend, and it's fair to say they have had quite a profound effect on him. He even says he enjoys hanging out with DC.
  • Gavin has written up his Fantasy Racers stats, and it's worth taking a look to see how the game reacted to the madness of the race itself. We also covered the Fantasy Racers updates in last night's Debrief.
  • Away from the racing, the interesting news to come out of yesterday was the fact that events at Singapore last year will be investigated. We all pondered whether Piquet's crash hadn't been just a bit too convenient, and now the FIA are going to do the same thing.

That'll do it for now. Let us know what you're up to - whether you have the day off, or have to work. There'll be an edited Debrief and a Digest up later today to keep you entertained. Until then, I'll see you in the comments.
