In English football action, 

Arsenal are up to 5th place in the Premier League after this morning's 5-2 thrashing of Reading. 

Playing away, Lukas Podolski broke the deadlock in the 14th minute. 

That was followed by a hat-trick from Spanish playmaker, Santi Cazorla. 

And Theo Walcott wrapped up the big win in the 80th minute. 

So the Gunners are now 2 points behind Tottenham and Chelsea, while Reading remain rooted at the bottom with their 10th loss in 17 matches. 

Switching over to motorsports news, 

Romain Grosjean will remain at the Lotus F1 team for the 2013 season. 

The team delayed a decision until they had held talks with the Frenchman, to reassure themselves he would reduce the number of errors he made in 2012. 

Earlier this season, he was given a 1-race ban after causing a multi-car pile-up at the Belgian Grand Prix. 

And that was his 7th incident in 12 races up to that point. 

But despite finishing 8th in the world drivers' championship, the 26 year old has been allowed to continue his partnership with Kimi Raikkonen at Lotus.
