Hi there.  Hope your week is going well.  Hot on the heels of the announcement that Sidepodcast will be boycotting the 2011 Bahrain Grand Prix, I have decided that I will be boycotting Thursdays, as they are rrrrubbish.  I won’t be doing anything of any use on that day, in order to avoid getting deeper into more rubbish.  Until the situation changes that will remain the case.  It should be noted that the choice is not a tricky one to make for me – I can always choose to have the day off or call it my second Wednesday.  I urge you to join in so that Thursdays can be banned for good… ;)

In other news, well, there’s not much really.  Damon Hill is stepping down as chairman of the BRDC, to be replaced by Derek Warwick…Sergio Perez is sure he will be fit for Canada, giving a great interview with F1.com… and the Senna movie has done really rather well in the box office.

Have you checked out Christine’s Driver and Team Rankings, or the Tweets of the Week?

It’s the Canadian Grand Prix later this week, but for me the big excitement of the weekend is Le Mans, which is an awesome spectacle.  The action begins later this evening with qualifying, covered by the excellent commentary of Radio Le Mans.  I cannot wait to see the titanic battle between Audi and Peugeot – it looks so tight right now that I have no idea what will happen!  I have also found an excellent form guide and spotters guide for you too.  BadgerGP has a great guide to life at Le Mans – which there is lots of ;) Oh, and Anthony Davidson has taken a pic of his rooms for us ;)

Finally here’s a funny print error from the Grauniad to make you chuckle – well at least it made Em Bearpark smile ;)

Have a great day and see you in the comments ;)
