Hello one and all! I have missed you, and I have missed writing these little posts every night. We have only been away a few days but we are back... sort of. Check out our explanation of what went wrong for us last week, and what we're doing to try and fix it here. Now, on with the good stuff.

  • Some quotes were doing the rounds today, supposedly from the mouth of Massa but it looks as though they were not things he actually said. The man himself is reported to be doing his first interview since his accident today at some point, and that will be an excellent thing to read, to confirm that he is getting better and better every day.
  • Peter Sauber has confirmed that he will do his level best to find a solution for BMW, to save hundreds of employees finding themselves out of a job. Sauber admits he can only advise the BMW board and the final decision will be theirs, but he is on the hunt for possible routes to salvation, even if time is short.
  • And finally, the Concorde Agreement has been signed, after months and months of talking about it. As Steven has pointed out in the comments, this should calm the politics down a little. I'm surprised the agreement only runs until 2012, but perhaps long-term thinking isn't too advisable at the moment. I can relate to that!

So, there you have it, a return to the daily posts as we know and love them. That means it must be time for me to wheel out that old phrase, I'll see you in the comments.
