It's Friday at last, and that means we're heading into another weekend. We know that Jon is busy this weekend, and will most likely return sans voice, but what are you up to? Let us know. Meanwhile, here are some of the things we're talking about:

  • Peter Sauber is not at all happy with BMW and their decision to essentially stop him buying the team. We've covered this in F1 Minute, and F1 Big Picture as well, but Sauber says this is the worst time in his entire motorsport career history. That is pretty bad!
  • Mr Brawn has admitted that he can totally see Schumacher winning at some point in this season, if not at Valencia. The Ferrari appears to be on the way up, and Ross knows how the man works, I guess.
  • Yesterday, Whitmarsh has said they aren't giving up on this year's car. Having won their first victory of the year, McLaren are going to keep on developing, and are hoping that this car will be the basis of next year's as well. It better had be, or they'll just repeat this year again, won't they?

That'll do it for now, I reckon. Don't forget to let us know if you have exciting plans for the weekend, and equally if you're not. I'll see you in the comments.
