Today it is the birthday of one Mr Sam Bird, sometime test driver for Williams, who is currently racing in the GP2 Asia series. That series confuses me greatly because it is a feature and sprint race, but only at two circuits, just a couple of events, and quite far apart. Still, it keeps the drivers busy over the winter months, I suppose. Meanwhile, here are some of the things we're talking about...

It was Hamilton's birthday yesterday and I missed it! I am not very good at keeping up with these important days and things, am I? Anyway, Happy Birthday to LewHam, hope he celebrated with his new friend Jenson Button. Anyway, thankfully there wasn't an enormous amount of Flav news yesterday, so we could concentrate on other things.

Daily: 7th January 2010

We have reached Thursday and most of the news is still about Flavio and how that is affecting everyone in the sport at the moment. There isn't much more to go on though, so perhaps it's worth looking at other things going on right now. Before I start, make sure you check out the new F1 Minute video. Onwards...

We are halfway through the week and there is snow in the UK causing traffic chaos all around. That's why we recommending staying indoors! There is plenty going on in F1 for now to keep you occupied. Here are some of the things we're talking about...

It's Franck's birthday! Woooohoo. Happy Birthday to everybody's favourite Frenchman. I hope he is having lots of lovely cake and celebrating as is appropriate for one's 32nd birthday. Meanwhile, I need to return my attention to more Formula 1 shaped things, so here's what's catching our eye at the moment...

Daily: 4th January 2010

Back to the grindstone, today, then, as the year of work begins again. It's Franck's birthday tomorrow and I'm mentioning it today because firstly, I will probably forget when it matters, and secondly, it's nice to start the week with a mention of Franck, and hopefully he'll get a mention tomorrow as well. Meanwhile, here are some of the things on our radar today...

Welcome to Sunday, we are three days in to 2010 already. I hesitate to say time is flying already, but seriously, that is quite scary. Still, the F1 news is beginning to wake up again, and that means we will have to do the same. It's been a good holiday, so we'll make the most of this last day. Here are some of the things we're talking about...

Daily: 2nd January 2010

We are well and truly into the new year now, the partying is over and it's time to start concentrating on getting back into a routine. It's my final weekend off before returning to work and it'll soon be time to try and remember to put 2010 on documents, instead of scribbling out 2009 for the next few weeks. Meanwhile, here are some of the things on our minds...

Daily: 1st January 2010

2009 has been and gone and it is to 2010 that we turn our attention. Happy New Year to everyone who reads, listens, participates, lurks and shares with Sidepodcast. I hope you are having a great day, and that it is the start of a wonderful year.

Daily: 31st December 2009

It has arrived, the final day of the year two thousand and nine. From tomorrow onwards we will be into double figures in this new millennium, and it is a chance to have a fresh start. Or equally, things will carry on in the same awesome way they have been. I am good at this fortune telling stuff. Anyway, here are some of the things we're up to...

Daily: 30th December 2009

In my research for daily facts and figures I have come across the best one ever. From the people's dictionary, today is the day in 1853 when a dinner party was held inside the Iguanadon in Crystal Palace Park. We knew this! Mr Giggles took us to see those dinosaurs and told us that fact! In your face, Wikipedia! Eh-hem, here are some more F1 related things...

Daily: 29th December 2009

It is Allan McNish's birthday today, and as it is drawing nearer to January, he must be getting prepared for the Autosport International show. Just like DC, we have seen him up in Birmingham pretty much every year that we have been. Although we still haven't decided if we'll go this year. Anyway, here are some of the things we're talking about...

Daily: 28th December 2009

It is Bank Holiday Monday in the UK, granted to us because Boxing Day fell at the weekend. There is still little to go on in the news stakes, which is a breath of fresh air and means we have been able to get other stuff done. Here are some of the things we're talking about...

Daily: 27th December 2009

Wikipedia tells me that today is "Crate Day" - the day after Boxing Day when all the boxes were loaded into crates. I don't really understand - what boxes? what crates? But still, I do like the idea that soon every day will have an official name. Anyway, here are some of the things we're talking about...

Daily: 26th December 2009

Boxing Day traditionally means recovering from the day before and eating all that leftover turkey. It will be turkey sandwiches and turkey curry for everyone for weeks, I'm sure. We were right about the F1 news, though, there was very little. Here's what we're talking about...

Daily: 25th December 2009

Hello and Merry Christmas! It's the 25th December, and I think we are safe now, there should be no F1 news today. Instead, it's all about chocolate, mince pies, and tracking Santa. Still, there are a couple of things we've noticed on our travels around the web, and we'd like to share them with you...

Daily: 24th December 2009

Happy Christmas Eve to one and all. I trust there will be no news today, right? I do hope so. I can't quite believe all this news keeps on happening. Here at Sidepodcast, we treasure the Christmas week as one where everyone else stops and we keep on going. It's not fair if they keep on going as well. Anyway, enough whining from me, here are some of the things we're talking about:

Daily: 23rd December 2009

It is ex-F1 driver birthday central today, with Bertrand Gachot celebrating his 47th birthday today. He seems to have raced for every team that has ever appeared in the Forgotten F1 Teams series, including but not limited to Onyx, Jordan, Coloni and Pacific. It also appears that Michele Alboreto was born on this day. The Italian raced for Ferrari and Tyrrell in the 80s, and died in 2001. Anyway, on to more current things:

Daily: 22nd December 2009

Tuesday has dawned, and silly me for thinking the news had ended already. We are just a few days from Christmas now and yet there are still new things to discuss each and every day. Here are some of the things we've got on our list at the moment...

Daily: 21st December 2009

It is supposedly the shortest day of the year today, which means that after today, the evenings will be getting lighter again. This is good as seeing the darkness come in before 4pm each day is not much fun at all! It also means we are really into Christmas, and the F1 news should be slowing down. Good stuff! Meanwhile, here is what we're talking about today...
