Welcome to Wednesday! It's the last day of March already, and I can't quite believe it. Still, there's no time to relax as F1 is moving straight on from Australia to Malaysia, and back to back racing means busy, busy times! Here are a couple of things we're talking about:

  • Renault have given a fabulous insight into the goings on back at the factory as the team prepare for the next race. They're talking about new updates to the car and their hopes for improved downforce. It looks like this is the first part of several posts, which is great news.
  • Manipe has another take on the boring/non-boring race debate, which is about tyres and the requirement for stopping to change compounds. It's an interesting idea, but my one concern is that the racing has been all about tyres in 2010, so if you take that out of the equation, what are you left with?
  • The McLaren debate is another that is rumbling on - two sides of the garage and whether they get on or not. James Allen had a balanced look at both sides of the argument, and I covered it a little in F1 Minute as well.
  • Also, this is a rather fabulous photo for F1 Big Picture to celebrate a moment in history of the Malaysian GP. Finally, if you haven't seen it already, a quick reminder of how we cover the build up to each race in photos.

That should do it for now. I'm still having a rather stressful week, but I'm just grateful it's a four day weekend soon. I will see you in the comments.
