It's Franck's birthday! Woooohoo. Happy Birthday to everybody's favourite Frenchman. I hope he is having lots of lovely cake and celebrating as is appropriate for one's 32nd birthday. Meanwhile, I need to return my attention to more Formula 1 shaped things, so here's what's catching our eye at the moment:

  • As Pat pointed out yesterday, we seem to be on a bit of a redesign tip at the moment, so it's only fair to point out the brand new Viva F1 site, that is actually the new destination for Pitlane Fanatic fans. It's a fresh year and a fresh start for the blog and forum, and they kick off with a great post about G forces, and a book review as well.
  • Good news for Kubica fans as it looks like he will remain at Renault after concerns emerged at the end of last year regarding the investment by Genii Capital. His manager said there weren't any real doubts but they just had questions that needed answering, and it absolutely wasn't about money. Whatever it was about, it looks to be sorted now.
  • I also wrote a post yesterday about the complaints from Peter Windsor over the summer shutdown. He has some interesting points but it doesn't look like he has much support, so I'm curious to hear your thoughts on the topic.

That'll do it for now. Don't forget to put yourself on the listener map if you haven't already, and I will see you in the comments.
