Welcome to Sunday, we are three days in to 2010 already. I hesitate to say time is flying, but seriously, that is quite scary. Five minutes ago we were seeing in the new year. Still, the F1 news is beginning to wake up again, and that means we will have to do the same. It's been a good holiday, so we'll make the most of this last day. Here are some of the things we're talking about:

  • Tony Fernandes has been speaking about the new era in Formula 1 and he believes that the the fresh teams and faces coming into the sport can only do it some good. He said the new ideas will be a bonus to F1, and should brighten it up. I am certainly hoping so.
  • Elsewhere, organisers at Silverstone are hoping they can deliver a spectacular event for fans - suggesting that the circuit will go back to its former glory, despite not having super duper investments, as somewhere like Abu Dhabi does. It's easy to say though, and I suspect they are just glad to have the race back. It might take some time before we see any major overhaul.
  • Finally, we had a great guest post with added pictures from JPancoast, who visited the Indianapolis Motor Speedway and the museum there. I am a little disturbed by a couple of the wonky cars, but the pictures are great, so I highly recommend it.

Anyway, that's all for now, I hope you are having a fabulous weekend so far, and I will see you in the comments.
