It's back to work then, if you weren't already, and now we can start turning our attention to the Spanish Grand Prix. Preview quotes are beginning to emerge from teams, and there's plenty of chatter about what to expect once we get going again in Barcelona.

It was a really quiet day yesterday, so we had to come up with other ways to amuse ourselves, like record a panel and debrief show. With it being a beautiful bank holiday in the UK, these should both be edited and available later today, but no promises, as I am coming down with the sniffles.
Daily: 3rd May 2009
Well, there really is no F1 news at the moment, which is only fair, as we're taking a nice break and I guess the F1 people are as well. That being said, here are some of the other motorsport news happening at the moment...

Heading into the weekend now, apparently it's David Beckham's birthday today. Good to know, hey, fact fans? Anyway, it seems to be a quiet time in F1 at the moment, as teams have a rest before Spain, and digest the budget cap information.

We are starting a brand new month today, and for those of us in the UK we're heading into a bank holiday weekend. That means the weather is no doubt going to be bad, but that's okay. We're used to it. Here's what is on our minds at the moment...

Last day of April, and we're expecting the last bit of news from the FIA for the month. They already essentially cleared McLaren to race for 2009, and now they'll discuss how things will shape up for the future of the sport.
Daily: 29th April 2009
I would continue the tradition of pointing out what special day it is today, however it can only be the "day where McLaren face the FIA." It's bound to be on the minds of everyone, but are we expecting an answer today or will the governing body need a day or so to think about it?

Continuing my trend of recognising random holidays, today is apparently World Graphic Design Day - celebrating... well, graphic design, obviously. Therefore, we will have to encourage lots of pictures and artwork today.

It's been a rough weekend in Sidepodcast Towers what with The Case of the Disappearing Doohickey, and Mr C's Illness: The Return. However, we're into a new week so things must be looking up already.
Daily: 26th April 2009
Ah, it was an eventful day yesterday both on and off track in Bahrain, and back here in Sidepodcast Towers. Here are some of the things you might have missed...
Daily: 25th April 2009
Things really should be all about the racing right now, but there are certain elements of the politics of F1 still hanging over our shoulders. The Donington Park saga still rumbles on but there is plenty more to talk about.
Daily: 24th April 2009
The action gets underway in Bahrain today, and we're looking at a dry race, at least. The prospect of a sandstorm seems to increase the more we talk about it, so we'll see what happens. Here are some of the things we're discussing at the moment (but they'll soon be outdated by FP1 and 2)...

Following on from yesterday's discovery of what kind of holiday it was, today I can tell you it is St George's Day. It's not a bank holiday, though, so it's off to work as normal for us at Sidepodcast Towers.
Daily: 22nd April 2009
Halfway through the week, and apparently it is Administrative Professionals' Day. According to Wikipedia, this is a holiday celebrated in the States to recognise the work of receptionists and the like. Don't tell me that Sidepodcast never teaches you anything.

Another day closer to the Bahrain Grand Prix, but we're still getting to grips with what happened in China first. These back-to-back races are not popular in Sidepodcast Towers. Anyway, here are some of the things up for discussion today...
Daily: 20th April 2009
The Monday following the race before, but there's no time to relax as it's time to start thinking ahead to Bahrain. What will we see in terms of performance? Will there be any more diffusers present? Will KERS ever return to those who have dumped it?
Daily: 19th April 2009
Another race under our belts, and it's almost time to look forward to Bahrain, as the back-to-back racing continues. However, there's still time to relive what we've just witnessed as we enjoy all the reaction...
Daily: 18th April 2009
What a brilliant qualifying we have just witnessed. I don't know about anyone else, but I wasn't expecting great things from China, and all things considered it looks like it's going to be a good race. Here are some of the things that will keep us chatting today...
Daily: 17th April 2009
We're into the race weekend now, with Free Practice already done and dusted. There'll be plenty to talk about this weekend, as the teams start adapting their cars depending on how their performance has been of late.
Daily: 16th April 2009
Ah, the meetup yesterday was brilliant and expect to hear more on it soon. Meanwhile, plenty has been happening in the F1 world, and although I haven't had a chance to catch up with the comments yet, I imagine these are the things under discussion...
