Happy Tuesday. Only a few more days till the next F1 race in Turkey and, far more awesome, till my well deserved holidays. I am going to visit Baile Átha Cliath and in my thoughts I am already there, struggling to focus on my daily duties, however I shall concentrate now and find some news and links for you.

This was big news in here: Rosberg made a DTM debut as a chauffuer. Well, at least it wasn't Adrian Sutil, but I think they wanted to keep their car in one piece. Paul di Resta went to Hockenheim to visit his DTM friends. Bruno Spengler from Canada won this first race of the new season and made Norbi Haug happy.

Mark Webber said he's open to switch teams in the future if Vettel Racing Team Red Bull doesn't extend his contract. It's a bout time, Mark. They are no good for you.

Bahrain has been given an extension to 3 June to decide whether the country's postponed Formula One race can be rescheduled this year.

Perth has named a suburb after Sir Jack Brabham. More on this at Joe's. And since you're already there you might as well want to read the other stories too, 'cause Joe has been busy yesterday. :-)

Force India want more pints ... err ... points. Paul di Resta: definitely maybe. Adrian Sutil: definitely not. My short opinion on that.

After DC had done some show racing in Singapore, Mark and Jaime raced through the streets of Turin at the weekend.

This cute Jaime chap went to a game of football yesterday and had an very common problem ... I translate: "What a bad referee ...". Sounds familiar? A never ending story.

This is amazing! The Dutch football team, VVV Venlo signed an 1,5 year old boy (!!!) after the had seen this video. Yes, this is ridiculous, And yes, this signing won't help VVV Venlo to reach anything, neither in the near nor more distant future.

In the Barcelona-Madrid-UEFA-saga started after last week's Champions league match and Jose's rant (see above) UEFA has rejected both team's complaints. As an answer Real started a digital war against Barcelona. And Jose called-up 19 players before tonight's Champions League match at Camp Nou. It is not over yet, and this night is going to be a night to remember ...

In the second CL match tomorrow night Manchester United host Schalke 04, but let's be frank, United is as good as through into the final. Schalke won't stop them. *bad language*

In the meantime in the Premier League. We're fifth!! Thanks to Tottenham's 2:1 defeat at Stamford Bridge me were able to overtake them on goal difference. Who would have dreamt about this in December, when we were like 17th or something (I suppressed it)???? And after Arsenal's - like AS Jimbo said "historical 1:0 win (over United), as they got the lead, and kept the lead" - Chelsea now are only 3 points behind the red ones from Manchester and the title race is back on. Chelsea are now our last hope ...

Also, do not miss the tennis action in Madrid.

Before I leave you a quick not regarding Spanish Wednesday. Due to the amount of work I simply do not have as much time as I used to and I am not able to write the dailies regularly every week. I appologize.

Oh, and to end up in style: a postcard from Diego F. :-)

Have a super Tuesday!
