The big news of yesterday was about Silverstone and the fact that the future of the British Grand Prix is now secure. I am mostly happy about this news because it means we don't have to talk about any more deadlines. I like it when things get settled. Meanwhile, here are some of the other things we're talking about:

  • Stuart has made quite an impact on his blog already, with an excellent post about that age old problem - the so-called F1 journalist, that stays at home and lets everyone else do the hard work for them. The more we vote with our feet, the more influence we can all have.
  • The edited version of this weekend's F1 Debrief was posted yesterday, and we use the brand new Disco Dan theme tune as an outtro. Thanks to Nikki and her friend Julie Mahendran - there must be drinking and there must be disco.
  • Stefano Domenicali has been discussing how he thinks Ferrari might fare next year, and of course he's saying they'll do better than 2009. I don't see how they could do much worse really. It was a tricky car, and they had a lot of bad luck and troubles to keep their attention off improving the car. How will they do in 2010 though? How will Alonso fit in? Stefano says he'll be a breath of fresh air.

That's all for now. Let us know what you're doing today, and how your week is going so far, and as ever, I will see you in the comments.
