It's D-Day all round for everyone, as we should be getting the results of the diffuser hearing, and we're also heading to the science museum for the meetup. So, chances are those two items will dominate discussions today:

  • Big apologies to anyone not going to the Science Museum who has had to put up with us wittering on about the Sidepodscience meetup for weeks now. If it makes you feel any better, I'm spending my one year wedding anniversary in a stuffy museum looking at F1 technology that will probably all go way over my head.
  • Having said that, we should have lots to talk about with the lovely people we meet, and we'll take some pictures and report back to you as we always do. We'll be taking as much equipment as mobility allows so that if the opportunity arises we can snap photos, record audio and maybe even capture some video. Who knows what will happen?
  • Finally, we'll be keeping our ear to the ground and waiting for the diffuser decision. Part of me thinks the FIA will string it out and make us wait another couple of days. They have the power, you know. However, should the result occur today, we will finally found out how the rest of the championship is going to shape up, and at last it can be put to rest... as if!

That'll do it for today. Again, apologies to those who aren't sciencing it up, but there will be plenty more opportunities for meetups in the future. Thank you to my mother-in-law for manning the blogging pumps in our absence and I will see you in the comments (as much as signal and battery life allows).
