Just one more day of testing to tide us over until next week, but it's been a pretty interesting ride so far. Here's what we've been talking about recently:

  • What is up with Bernie and his desire to make everyone change their name? USF1 have had to become USGPE, not nearly as catchy. Force India have had to redo their logo, because it looks too much like F1. Crazy times.
  • Talking of logos, we caught sight of the official FOTA design, and boy it is not pretty. In fact, it's so bad that we're pretty confident you could do better. Why not have a go and drop.io the results? If we get enough submissions, we could have a little poll, and everyone loves a good poll, don't they?
  • Sato has revealed that talks with Red Bull to become the reserve driver for both RBR and STR have now fallen through. The statement on his site suggested that they couldn't come to an agreement (over money, or opportunities, or what?) and that he is now looking for something else to occupy him in the future.

That'll do for now. If you've got a spare few minutes, don't forget to listen to the first episode of the latest mini series. While you're at it, I'll see you in the comments.
