Today is apparently National Literacy Day, so... why not read a book, or something? Anyway, useless fact of the day out the way, here are some of the things we're talking about at the moment.

  • Liuzzi finally has the second chance he's been looking for, with his confirmation as Fisi's replacement at Force India. The universal opinion on Sidepodcast appears to be a resounding: yay! So, let's hope Liuzzi can live up to his potential.
  • The ongoing Donington saga continues, with Simon Gillett continuing to assert that plans are on schedule for the track to be ready. The quote: "Donington has moved forward an awful lot and we are really comfortable." I feel better, don't you?
  • James has written a great silly season starter, with the six drivers we know have contracts, and a lot of speculation about the rest. It took me by surprise to note there are 20 seats without a driver at the moment. 20!! We have some fun and games ahead of us.

That'll do it for now. As ever, you can use this thread for any topics you want to talk about, but if there is some F1 news that requires a breakout thread, let us know and we'll get one started. I'll see you in the comments.
