On this day, six years ago, the US government confirmed the existence of Area 51. I know this isn't even remotely F1 related, but I do find the relation between potential extraterrestrial life and certain paddock regulars an interesting concept. Anyway, here are some of the things we've been up to:

  • The final F1 Digest for the German GP weekend is finished and ready for listening, and it rounds out the weekend nicely. One thing I have noticed following the race is Horner's comments about Webber. Whilst saying he did a great job, he also mentions how annoyed they were that the Australian didn't mention his injured shoulder over the winter, and that Newey isn't happy about the extra weight in a leg full of metal. Full of sympathy that team, aren't they?
  • There are lots of fun things going on in the wiki following the Parade Lap this weekend. We've got Giggles Made-Up Media, otherwise known as GMM, plus Sidepodbond Film Titles and Sidepodale. All of these are pretty explanatory, I reckon, so head on over to the wiki and add your thoughts.
  • In a slightly less fun, but just as important and interesting wiki addition, we've put up a page for anyone wishing to sign up to help with show transcripts to sign up. All the information you need is on the page, with an example of a completed show as well. We've had two volunteers already - RG and James - so join these excellent peeps and get writing.

That should keep you busy for a while, I guess. Mr C is busy planning a trip to Oviedo in Spain so he can see Mr Alonso in action. I am not so keen. Anyway, I will see you in the comments.
