It's Halloween!! Well, it will be at this time tonight. Are you going to any parties? Dressing up? Or simply eating a lot of sweets? I know what sounds good to me. I carved a pumpkin once and it was gross. Anyway, here are some F1 things to discuss:

  • Williams confirmed they would be running Cosworth engines yesterday, which is something we had suspected for a long time. On the one hand, we were surprised as Mr Williams has said previously that Cosworth aren't his favourites, but on the other hand, he seems to know what he's doing. So, we'll wait and see.
  • Did anyone else see the free practice sessions that I saw yesterday? The track in Abu Dhabi is interesting and looks good under lights, but there wasn't much to talk about on track, and none of the drivers seemed that perplexed despite being faced with a brand new circuit. I'm hoping today will offer a little bit more.
  • Autosport reports that Bruno Senna has as good as signed a deal with Campos META (don't forget the META) which means he has a seat for next year. He was so often rumoured with Honda that their demise can't have done his chances any good. However, this new development means some more fresh blood into the season in 2010.

That'll do it for now. We'll be back with live commenting threads and podcasts throughout the day (am running slightly late on the FP Digest), and we look forward to seeing you there. I'll see you in the comments.
