We're all feeling the after effects of staying up/getting up to watch what was essentially a non-existant Free Practice session. Well, I say "we" but I slept through all bar one installation lap from Alguersuari. Anyway, we're hoping for more action today, no doubt. Here are some of the things we're talking about in lieu of any on track stuff:

  • Glock was unwell yesterday, but the team are pretty sure he'll be okay to get back in the car today. Kobayashi took a turn behind the wheel but it was hardly an exciting debut at his home circuit. At least it gave the fans another driver to look out for though, while they waited.
  • Whilst we're on the subject of Toyota, Trulli reckons he'll have a seat in F1 next year, although whether it is with Toyota or not remains to be seen. The team are supposed to be chasing heavily after Robert Kubica, who is weighing up the options. Will Renault be attractive to the Pole though?
  • Vettel is still mad about his drive through penalty from last weekend, suggesting that he cut the corner of the timing beam and that's why the sensors thought he was speeding. He says there should be a speed penalty not a distance penalty. Perhaps he's right?

That'll do it for now. We'll be along with plenty more in the way of threads, results and podcasts throughout the day, so stay tuned and as ever, I'll see you in the comments.
