Yesterday was a relatively quiet news day, compared to those we have seen over the past few days. Things are slowing down momentarily, just before everything ramps up again for Brazil. Meanwhile, here's what we're talking about:

  • Trulli is going to test out a NASCAR drive, which he says is just for fun. Of course, this leads to epic speculation that he is on his way out, with Mr C announcing that if the Italian does make the jump, he might actually start watching the sport. Weird.
  • We learnt yesterday that Massa would be waving the chequered flag at Brazil, his home race. That's going to be kinda tough for him, knowing how difficult the race was last year, and being frustrated that he can't be in the car this time round. However, he says it's an honour, and I'm sure he'll do a fab job.
  • Alguersuari is preparing for the final Renault 3.5 series race towards the end of this month, but he is adament (again) that it isn't interfering in his Formula 1 participation. Why do people keep asking him about this? The man himself admits that the cars are different, but surely all racing is good racing, as you will always be learning?

That'll do it for now. The phrase thank god it's Friday has never been so apt as this week, however, things are looking much more positive now. Let us know what your plans are for the weekend, and if they are as exciting as ours (moving furniture). I will see you in the comments.
