We're into the weekend now, and I realise I haven't asked what you're all doing? Our plans are naturally structured around the Formula 1, but perhaps there are others out there who might be... gasp... going outside or something. Let us know, anyway.

  • As it turns out, Force India have done a Williams and entered the 2010 championship regardless of what FOTA are trying to acheive. It looks as though the team will get suspended from the association, leaving them with just eight members still in the conditional entry. Will that be enough to turn Max's head?
  • There appears to be a significant lack of grip on the softer tyres in Turkey, although some teams found the two compounds very similar. With Bridgestone bringing compounds two steps apart, it seems to have caused nothing but trouble so far this season.
  • It is qualifying day, and that means before the knockout phases get underway, we have to make our predictions in the Sofa F1 Pole Poll. Simply state who you think will be on pole and the top eight finishers in the race. It's just a bit of fun, and the chances are you won't get all eight right!

That'll do it for now. There'll be a Joe Show along at some point today, along with plenty of other podcasting goodness, so keep your eyes peeled. I'll see you in the comments.
