Today is apparently Inventor's Day in Europe, which is a day set aside to celebrate all things independent and inventing. This is good, as we have a wiki page setting out all the things the commentors want invented. If anyone is good with a hammer and stuff, then dive right in! Meanwhile, here are some of the things we're talking about:

  • Mr C and myself met up with some Sidepodders at the Mercedes-Benz day yesterday. We had a fantastic day, so thanks go to Jackie for sorting out the tickets. There are tales to be told and pictures to be shared, so stay tuned for that. Although, if you want a sneak peak, there are some shots on drop.io that we uploaded throughout the day.
  • Meanwhile, it has been a quiet day in F1, but seeing Anthony Davidson behind the wheel yesterday started us pondering whether he will be racing next year. His final commentating duties for 5live did seem to contain a lot of goodbyes, and there are some new slots opening up on the grid. Where would he fit in?
  • James Allen had a piece on his website yesterday about Williams CEO Adam Parr and his thoughts that the era of manufacturer's is over. He would be one of the first to say that though, and I know the man has ruffled some feathers in the past. Do we think this is the case or is he just trying to promote his own team and their independent status for a change?

That should cover it for now. I can't quite believe it's Monday again, but there we go. Let us know how your weekend went, and as ever, I'll see you in the comments.
