McLaren are to set an F1 car loose on the famed Mount Panorama circuit in Bathurst, Autstralia.
Top F1 links from the past 24 hours:
“Moves are underway for V8 Supercars’ Team Vodafone star Lowndes and former Formula One champion Jenson Button to swap cars and race around the famous Mount Panorama street circuit in the lead-up to the Melbourne Grand Prix.”
Thanks to Mike for the tip
“Maybe Max Mosley is unusually brave. Or maybe he?óÔé¼Ôäós just found that the best way to respond when you are cast as a depraved pervert is to reinvent yourself as a freedom fighter.”
“On the reliability front, the first assessment can be seen as positive: the mishap that forced Felipe Massa to spend a long time in the garage yesterday is in no way the sign of some congenital defect in the car.”
“Seen the new HRT F1 2011 livery. Big improvement on last year.”

Debating a major talking point for this season: how well the new Pirelli tyres will work.
Happy birthday to Smitty and Chris Gordon-Smith!
On this day in F1
Just a few weeks before the start of the 2009 season, Toro Rosso confirmed Sebastien Bourdais would race for them.
It was hardly a ringing endorsement of the driver who had made his debut for them the year before, and sure enough he was dropped halfway through the season for Jaime Alguersuari.
