It's back to work then, if you weren't already, and now we can start turning our attention to the Spanish Grand Prix. Preview quotes are beginning to emerge from teams, and there's plenty of chatter about what to expect once we get going again in Barcelona. Meanwhile, here's what we're talking about.

  • Having a lovely bank holiday here in the UK meant that not one but two podcasts were published for your listening pleasure yesterday. The Debrief catches up with all things news-worthy, including McLaren, Donington, and the last race in Bahrain. The Sidepodpanel is hosted by both Jackie and Lou and has some really great questions and a lot of laughs.
  • Alianora has been looking at the 2010 regulations in a lot of detail and written a great post on the subject. It's a long one but well worth a read. The last paragraph, though, features the phrase: "...mostly it is a mess..." which does basically tell you all you need to know.
  • Don't forget that if you're on Twitter (or fancy counting out 140 characters), then take part in the F1 Nostalgia competition. We've even started using a hashtag - #f1nostalgia - which makes the entries really easy to find. RG has signed up to Twitter especially for the competition, so if you're not a member yet, you've got no excuse.

That'll do for now. There'll be more news along later today, no doubt, so I will see you in the comments.
