On The Eve.

So the Canadian GP weekend starts tomorrow, and there's a bunch of 'backstage' stuff going on... but very little actual, y'know, racing.

For example, the subject of the homogenous engine plans for 2008 came up at a general meeting of the teams today. The teams voted against it 8-4, which was enough to put paid to the idea. Except the Emperor Mosely and Darth Bernie, through their mouthpiece, the Grand Moff Whiting, decreed that the teams would get no say in the matter. "Oh. This is different."

Michelin announced today that they will not bid to be the sole provider of tires next year. "F1 is about technological advancement, and this won't allow for that," said the Michelin rep (I'm paraphrasing). Michelin's next win will be their 100th in F1, behind only Goodyear.

There's more, but it's all just noise right now... we want racing, durnit!

1 It has all been too long since the last race, I'm jonesing for my F1 fix now. Tried a bit of Le Mans last weekend, just didn't hit the spot quite the same.

I did see this clip of Taki Inoue the other day. It really isn't funny. At all. Honest.

2 No, it isn't funny.
He's not joking.
Not funny at all.
