After the RB5 hit the ground running yesterday, we're now ready to see it in action as the test in Jerez gets underway. In fact, we really do need to see it in action, as it got cut off after only 14 laps.
It's launch day yet again, with the RB5 expected at some point today. That will lead on to a week's worth of testing, so it's all go again. If you want to keep up with what's happening, don't forget to check out the calendar on F1 Minute.
We're racing towards some new F1 action, with a launch and some testing due next week. Until then, we can bathe in the relative silence of a weekend, that is, until the live show begins later tonight.
The weekend is finally upon us, and I personally couldn't be happier about this. Two whole days off, apparently being buried in the snow, so let's talk about Formula 1 instead.
Personally, I had quite a bad day yesterday, but then news came in that cheered everything up. Let's hope we get more of the same today, because it's always good to end the week on a high.
Now that snow really isn't dominating the headlines anymore, I'm not sure what we're going to talk about. Just kidding, there's still plenty going on in the F1 world. Here are just a few topics...
So here we are for another day. The snow seems to be gradually disappearing, and is therefore not such a topic of discussion as it was previously. Ah well, the good ol' British weather saw us out for two days, can't ask for more than that.
With the possible return of in-season testing, and the news that Singapore will finally have a safe pit lane (boo about the bumps), yesterday was a good day in Formula 1. Let's hope today brings us more, but for now, here's what Sidepodcast stuff we're talking about...
February is here, and we are looking forward to a busy day at Sidepodcast Towers. However, that doesn't mean we'll leave you with nothing to discuss. Here's what's going on at the moment...
The end of the first month of the new year is upon us and we will rapidly be heading into February. Supposedly, Honda's deadline is today, but they've been playing that down all week, so let's see what else is going on...
Yesterday saw an impromptu field trip to catch the new Renault in action. I don't think today will be quite as exciting, but we can try our best.
What news will keep the Formula 1 conversation flowing today? There was plenty to discuss yesterday - Renault found a new partner, the Malaysian GP is heading into darkness, and the Pussycat Dolls approve of Lewis.
The month of January is drawing to a close, and whilst we were concerned about a particular Honda-shaped deadline approaching, a spokeswoman has told us not to panic. So, we won't, and we'll look at what else is going on in the F1 world.
It's been a quiet day today, with no testing or launches, but it seems as though the credit crunch is hitting more than ever.
Another week begins as we roll into Monday, and it looks like it's going to be a pretty quiet week. There are no scheduled tests or launches, as far as I know, although chances are the teams need time to recover from their windswept adventures during the week just gone.
We were out and about yesterday, and missed out on any news that might have been happening. Thankfully, though, it looks like all was quiet on the F1 front. A1 GP seems to have got it's fair share of comments yesterday, and here's what else was going on...
On the face of it, yesterday was a pretty dull day. The weather brought proceedings in Portugal to a halt, and the teams all packed up and went home, their testing finished with. However, elsewhere, little tidbits of F1 news were beginning to surface.
The inclement conditions seems to be clearing up for our boys out there testing. That's good because I was starting to get worried about poor Trulli having to don his wet weather gear. Nevertheless, testing continues for just one more day, so we have that and more to discuss...
Yesterday seems to have been a pretty important day, all things considered. Not because of the BMW launch, either. Thankfully, there are no more launches this week, as I think we can only take so much ugly at a time. Now we need to concentrate on the testing going on, albeit completely useless as a tool for comparison.
Another launch today, and this time it's the turn of BMW. They've been keeping us amused with teaser videos, but now it's time to see the real thing. Let's hope it's slightly better looking than the ones we have seen so far, as our recent admission that "the 2009 cars are not so bad" is looking a bit shaky.
