Hello everybody, it's me again! I am plunged back into the world of writing the daily. Thanks to everyone who took part in the takeover week, I hope it was fun to write and read, and perhaps we can repeat the process again soon. Meanwhile, I am back and it's time to talk about Formula 1 again (maybe)...

  • Firstly, I must plug my advent calendar series. Who's silly idea was it to extend a mini series to 25 shows? Still, we are a fifth of the way through as there should be another episode up very shortly. I'd love to hear what you think about the idea, if they're a good season round up or if you're just sick of 2009 and want it to be 2010 already.
  • That Ricciardo fellow seems to have made the most of his test with Red Bull. He has been talking up his time in the car and said he's proud of what he achieved while he was there. It's hard for us to know what that is, being testing times and all, but if his constant smiley face is anything to go by, he did a good job.
  • There are more pre-announcements doing the rounds, with the ongoing speculation over Renault and whether they will confirm their future at some point soon. We were expecting something yesterday, so it seems more likely it will be next week now. There's also talk of a Silverstone press conference about the British GP. That can only be good news, can't it?

That's all for now, I reckon. As ever, I'd like to know what you're doing with your weekend, whether it is particularly exciting or the same old, same old. We'll be doing Sidepodcast stuff and preparing for a live show on Sunday. I'll see you in the comments.
