Hello and welcome to Monday, it's that time again, time for a daily. I suppose it is also back to school time again. I always remember the fifth of September as the sort of time I'd get that sinking feeling. Thankfully, school was a while ago for me. Anyways, what kind of F1 things are we talking about?

  • This weekend, we put up a couple of posts, the first of which involved David Coulthard and his Mercedes Benz reality versus virtual race. The action kicks off today at 3pm, with live streaming on the website, so if you have spare time, it might be worth seeing who can win - DC on track, or the excellent gamers on the simulator.
  • We also heard from both Lukeh and James who attended the Red Bull Speed Jam in Cardiff, with some great pictures and words about their day out. It seems Red Bull are pulling out all the stops at the moment to keep the crowds entertained, so well done to them.
  • There's also news doing the rounds that Narain Karthikeyan has found himself sponsorship to be driving at the Indian Grand Prix, but are HRT prepared to give him the opportunity? I suppose if the price is right, any opportunity turns into a business transaction. I am always surprised at the lengths F1 goes to trying to get drivers into cars for home races.

We finished recording the latest episode of F1 Debrief last night, so it should be released at some point during the day. Keep your eyes and ears peeled for that one, and have a fabulous Monday!
