We are into Tuesday already, which means Monday is well and truly gone. I don't know about anyone else, but I found it to be quite a stressful one. Turning towards today instead, then, here are some of the things we're discussing:

  • Alguersuari seems to think that this weekend saw a big improvement in his own performance, and that it was one of his best weekends in Formula 1. I can see what he's trying to say, that the car was good and he felt comfortable in it and everything was working well, until he crashed into the barriers - as illustrated here.
  • We've talked about Harry's blog before, she's spending a year following Formula 1 around the world and writing about it as she goes... sort of. Posts have been missing in action recently, but there's been a round up of the last few races, and it's fair to say she's having a good time!
  • We've not been shy about expressing our Jake love here at Sidepodcast, but I have to say his post-race blog entries are one of the best things about the BBC's coverage. He's got a genuine enthusiasm for the racing drama, but fills us in on plenty of behind the scenes gossip from the paddock as well. Far from showing off, Jake has a way of bringing us along for the ride without going over the top. Yay for Jake!

That should do for now. There's the possibility of an announcement or two today, but I'll save that for the potential breakout threads. I'll see you in the comments.
