Fine, we promise not to do a bunk today. We'll stay indoors where it's safe and nothing ever happens.

If you missed the events of yesterday, you'll be needing to look at this photograph. Hand on heart, Rob Smedley is every bit as fantastic in person as he appears on the TV/Radio and Sidepodcast loves him to pieces.

In terms of what's happening elsewhere in F1, what do we have to consider?

  • Rachel found a video interview with Bernie, where he claims he doesn't want F1 to leave Silverstone. Yup read that sentence again and then watch the video. Finally, pinch yourself to make sure you didn't dream the whole thing.
  • Dan's been keeping abreast of Joe's latest postings and recommends we all check out this fine article. I'm going to read it right now and you should do the same. Go right ahead, we'll meet back here in five.
  • F1 Wolf has also posted about his day in the Paddock Club sipping champagne and driving in an F1 simulator (hopefully not in that order). The man returns to Silverstone later today.

In Sidepodland, we've had a spate of de-lurking in the comments these past few days, and we welcome all newbies with open arms. If you're still yet to join in the fun, now would be a really good time to step up and say "hi". We'll be around all of Saturday, live commenting our way through Free Practice and Qualifying. Try it once and you'll wonder how you ever enjoyed racing without it.
