Midway through the week and we have ourselves another launch to pore over, this time Virgin will be revealing their new car to the world. It's an online launch which is different to everything we have experienced so far this year, and I don't know about anyone else but I'm hoping for more: "Are you ready?" from Glock. Anyway, here are some of the other things we're discussing:

  • The first Aside with Joe of 2010 is edited and published and awaiting your consumption. I was present for this one which makes a nice change, and we covered all manner of topics, including how to write history books and the logistics of a meetup in London. There's some F1 stuff in there too, of course.
  • Over on his blog, Paul has been looking through some of the old liveries, year by year. So far, he's up to 1997, which features a Jordan looking a little bit like the current Renault, plus a McLaren running the West sponsorship that I would like to see return. Love these livery posts, keep them coming Paul!
  • Meanwhile, testing will continue today and we'll be covering it in a dedicated thread as usual. So far, testing has been a lot more popular than we expected, and that is brilliant. If you haven't managed to be around for any of it yet, then all I will do is recommend this Twitpic account. Mr C says it's his favourite page on the internets at the moment.

That's all for now. Let us know what you're up to and how you're liking the return of so much Formula 1 news and action. I will see you in the comments.
