We are halfway through the week now, as Wednesday has arrived. I thought yesterday might have been a Thursday, it wasn't going very well - particularly for US F1 - but apparently we still have one of those to come this week. Meanwhile, here's what's happening at the moment:

  • As mentioned, yesterday was not a good day for US F1. The team have ceased operations and the entire handling of the situation doesn't reflect well on Anderson and Windsor. Apparently they are still keen on entering the sport in 2010 - but who would be keen to work with them now? Have your say over on the dedicated thread.
  • You have to feel sorry for all the employees, but Jose Maria Lopez looks like he's got somewhere to go. The Argentinian driver appears to be ready to join Campos as reserve driver - but is that just jumping from the frying pan into the fire? At least he gets the chance to remain in F1 which is the first step.
  • I released the third episode of the four-part F1 Digest 2010 Season Preview special. This time round we're looking at the calendar, so expect a trip round the globe as I give you a brief overview of what to expect at each circuit. Except for Korea because they haven't actually built that one yet.

That's all for now, it's the middle of the week, so it's all downhill to the weekend from here. I will see you in the comments.
