Apparently, according to the people's encyclopedia, Dublin was founded on this day in 988AD. If ever there was cause for a celebratory Guinness that would be it, but get this - Odense in Denmark was founded on the same day. Double the fun! Anyway, here is some F1 stuff to keep us going this Friday:

  • Tis Free Practice day, so expect some live commenting threads to appear throughout the day, and an F1 Digest episode later. It looks as though the weather is going to be pretty changeable over the weekend, with Friday and Saturday currently showing as rainy. That'll make for some interesting sessions!
  • I don't know about anyone else, but I am falling more and more to my happy place - so don't forget that if you're on Twitter, you can use the hashtag #f1happyplace to add to the fun. There are no rules about what goes in there, as long as it will cause a smile.
  • Pat has begun the mammoth task of writing up his Goodwood adventures. So far we have pictures and a blog entry about bikes. Can't wait for the rest!

That'll do it for now. Here's hoping Friday is a good one, and as ever, let us know if you have any plans for the weekend - other than joining us for all the sessions, obviously. I'll see you in the comments.
