Hey guys, after subbing in yesterday it’s time for my proper Daily today.  And how are we all?  Have you ever felt like writing a Daily Post for Sidepodcast?  You have?  Well you are in luck, because some spaces have opened up.  Why not check out this post, which should tell you all that you need to know…

My, the Turkish Grand Prix was a corker wasn’t it?  There was loads of overtaking, with many conclusions to be made… Some might say that it’s F1 – but not as we know it!  There was plenty of things worth drawing a picture about and with drivers like Kobayashi starting in last place and finishing tenth, some drivers think it is the end of qualifying

Michael Schumacher had a poor race, which he didn’t enjoy very much.  There have been some people in the paddock pondering about his future in the sport, but he does have the full support of the Mercedes board.  Which means if he was a football manager he’d be a week away from getting the sack…

Nico Rosberg has been up to lots this week, showing RTL how his seating position looks in his car, starting a video blog and earning himself and his team lots of points in Christine’s Rankings this week.

Apparently Robert is getting better.  Yay!  I’ll bet Eric thinks he is the Pineapple of F1 drivers, eh?  Speaking of finding the Pineapple of drivers, Crofty has been hooning around Brands Hatch helping find a winner in the GT5 Academy.  Apparently he was 4th out of 9 media guys – well done mate!

It’s also time for the final of another F1 talent search – the WTF1’s Got Talent final.  Honestly, how could you not vote for Eddie there?

Also looking for talent is screenwriter Peter Morgan, who wants to make a film about Niki Lauda and the 1976 F1 season.  Oh yes please!  Although, I think make-up in the film industry is a lot more realistic these days Niki…

How about another glimpse at the old days – in the comments someone linked to an old Kart race in Paris at the end of the 1993 season that I remember watching as a kid – the battle between Senna and Prost is so good!

A few more links to finish off…

Leigh has been writing about GP3, which looked like it has some crazy carnage in their races.  The cars still sound awful though!

Here’s a funny cartoon about Portaloos – I’m not sure I want to know how they work, mind you…

Springfield Punx drew the Silence, which looks just as creepy as they did on TV.

Dale Jr. got to play iRacing on the world’s largest TV screen – lucky so and so!

Finally Microsoft have bought Skype – quite whether this is a good or a bad thing I don’t know, but I do hope it doesn’t mean more bloatware!

That’s all from me – I will be in a seminar the next couple of days so I’ll only be able to check in during the evenings.  Have fun and see you in the comments!
