Daily: 30th November 2009 - It is Monday once again and to steal the title from the song by The Boomtown Rats; I don't like Mondays, the weekend is over and I'm having to get on with some work. This is the third daily post as part of the takeover, who knows maybe we should takeover more often? The aim for this daily thread is to be free of anything Formula One related. I hope the teams don't decide today is the day to reveal anything but by saying that I have probably tempted fate so if something does happen I'm sure breakout posts will appear as soon as humanly possible.



Daily: 22nd April 2010 - Hello! Welcome to Thursday, that dreaded day of the week, and the day I, James, have the pleasure of writing the daily post. A random fact for you all I was born on a Thursday and according to the popular nursery rhyme 'Monday's Child' those born on this day have far to go, where exactly is anyone’s guess.

Daily: 29th April 2010 - This should be an interesting daily post considering I haven't a clue as to what has been going on, F1 or otherwise. I can't even remember when I last commented on Sidepodcast! This has to be the longest time that the doohicky has not been open on my computer but whilst I have work to do it will have to stay this way as much as I hate it!


Daily: 6th May 2010 - Hello! and welcome to Thursday the 6th May 2010. The long wait between races is almost at an end, the first free practice session of the Spanish Grand Prix starts tomorrow after almost three weeks of no action. Also this weekend there is a Rally in New Zealand, I won't pretend to know anything about what is happening though.

Daily: 13th May 2010 - Hello! Welcome to Thursday 13th May 2010. We are only 4 days removed from the Spanish Grand Prix and they are at it again, this time around the twisty streets of Monaco. For the only time this year we get free practice on a Thursday rather than a Friday to allow the streets to be opened to the public again on the Friday.

Daily: 20th May 2010 - It is Thursday again! Where does the week go? Time is marching on and whilst we have a breather from F1 this weekend, the F1 World has certainly not gone quiet.

Daily: 22nd May 2010 - The week is over and it is now the weekend! Woohoo! There is no Formuala One this weekend we get a break before the Turkish Grand Prix will be taking place next weekend. This time last year we were in the gap day that exists for the Monaco Grand Prix, it has nearly been an entire year since Jenson Button went for a run down the pit straight. Doesn't time just fly by?


Daily: 3rd June 2010 - t is Thursday once more and after missing last weeks daily post due to illness I have returned to hopefully bring you an interesting post once more. Whilst we have no Formula One action this weekend the aftermath of the race in Turkey has left us with a number of news stories, the majority focusing on the Red Bull team.

Daily: 10th June 2010 - It is Thursday once more, it feels like time is just flying by. Whilst these is a dislike for Thursdays on Sidepodcast it is the last day before what is a weekend full of sport with the Canadian Grand Prix, Le Mans 24 Hours and the start of the World Cup so make the most of this time.

Daily: 17th June 2010 - Welcome to Thursday 17th June 2010, the F1 circus has moved on from Canada and the teams will be working on the upgrades they will be bringing to the European Grand Prix in Valencia a week on Saturday.

Daily: 24th June 2010 - It is Thursday once more, the day that seems to be everyone's least favourite day of the week. Normally not a lot happens on Thursday, at least from my perspective, but with a huge amount of sport taking place hopefully today will just fly by.


Daily: 1st July 2010 - It is July! The year seems like is just flying on by, it is day 182 of 2010 and with only 183 until the end of it is essentially the middle of the year. After the last couple of weeks of almost non-stop sport we have time for a breather with the World Cup taking a break and no Formula One this weekend, Wimbledon though carries on and as always there will be a post for that.

Daily: 8th July 2010 - Hello and Welcome to Thursday, I know what you are thinking its Thursday the worst day of the week. The weekend is so close but yet still so far away. The good news is that there is only one day until the British Grand Prix starts to get underway at Silverstone.

Daily: 15th July 2010 - Hello and Welcome to Thursday, yep its that time of the week again the weekend is so close but yet still so far away. This week there is no F1 to look forward to this weekend but there is Superleague which means one Franck Montagny will be racing.

Daily: 22nd July 2010 - No suprises today I'm afraid, it is Thursday once more and I know its an awful day and no one likes it but we have the German Grand Prix to look forward to this weekend, with marginal tyres and rain on the cards it could be a good one.

Daily: 29th July 2010 - Yep it is Thursday again, the weeks feel like they are just flying by. With back to back races we are off to Hungary this weekend where last year live timing failed during qualifying leaving everyone wondering what was going on. Also this weekend we have a rally in Finland (come on Kimi!) and Superleague (come on Franck!).


Daily: 5th August 2010 - Welcome to Thursday. The F1 break has begun so there is nothing really happening in the F1 World, essentially nothing is going to happen between now and the Belgium GP, so we best make the most of the quiet to enjoy other things.

Daily: 12th August 2010 -

Daily: 19th August 2010 - Thursday once more, which means I have the the privilege of writing the daily post. Just over one more week now until the Formula One action returns with the Belgium Grand Prix, exciting right? Have you enjoyed the break or have you spent the last two weeks wishing for Formula One to return?

Daily: 26th August 2010 - Thursday again! We are now so close to the return of Formula One action, if I'm honest I'm not that bothered about it. A bunch of commenters are off to Spa this weekend to get wet, enjoy the race and atmosphere.


Daily: 2nd September 2010 - Welcome to Thursday, yep I know again. For the Apple fans amongst us yesterday saw the release of a new range of iPod’s, noticeable Mr C and myself were most excited over the iPod Touch finally getting a camera. After an racing action last weekend at Spa Francorchamps there is no F1 action this weekend, no rallying for Kimi but possibly racing for Franck

Daily: 9th September 2010 - Hello and welcome to Thursday, it is so very nearly the weekend and there is F1 action at Monza along with rallying for Kimi to keep us entertained. The winner of last year’s Italian Grand Prix at Monza was Rubens Barrichello, who this weekend will be starting his 301st grand prix (lets hope it goes better than the 300th).



Daily: 9th February 2011 - 'Ello and welcome to the 9th February 2011, how exciting! Gavin is off on holiday at the moment (lucky for some) so here I am with a daily post, my first of 2011 as well, to help you on your way today.


Daily: 17th May 2011 - Hello and welcome to the 17th May 2011, how exciting! eh? For those longing for the weekend, well we're one day closer to it and the Spanish Grand Prix, so lets take a look at what has been going on;

Daily: 31st May 2011 - Good day to you!, with the Monaco GP behind us and the next race in Canada not until the following weekend we get a small breather from Formula One action.


Daily: 14th June 2011 - Why hello! You've had a day to recover from the prolonged chaos that was Canadian Grand Prix, so hopefully you are all doing well.

Daily: 28th June 2011 - Hello Sidepodcastians, it is Tuesday the 28th June 2011. Which means we're a day closer to the weekend! Okay amittedly its not that close... ok I give in it isn't close at all. Lets move on and see what has been happening yesterday.


Daily: 12th July 2011 - Hello Sidepodcast fans, it is Tuesday the 12th July 2011. Two days removed from the British Grand Prix at Silverstone. I hope your start to the week has been good, but fear not Tuesdays are generally better than Mondays

Daily: 26th July 2011 - Hello Sidepodcast fans, it is Tuesday the 26th July 2011. Two days on from a thrilling German Grand Prix at the Nurburgring, which does seem to produce better racing than the chopped up Hockeinheim. I hope your start to the week has been good, but fear not Tuesdays are generally better than Mondays.


Daily: 9th August 2011 - Hello Sidepodcast fans, it is Tuesday the 9th August 2011. Formula One is currently on 'holiday' for the summer, although some news is still trickling in and here are a few things to tide you over.
