Here we are, Monday once again, and the Le Mans weekend is over. It wasn't the result I was hoping for, naturally, but it was still a good race, and a really fun thing to experience with all our Sidepodfriends (coined by Jeremy). Here are some of the things we're talking about:

  • Wurz won the race in Le Mans over the weekend, with my team of Franck and Bourdais coming in a close second. They led a lot of the way but couldn't make it stick through to the end. Still, even though Franck looked miserable afterwards, he must be happy to have help stop the Audi run of victories.
  • Despite the fact they haven't managed to get on the entry list for 2010 as yet, Lola still aren't quitting their F1 dreams just yet. The boss says the decision will be made on Tuesday, which seems odd to me. Either you're going to wait for the next Max deadline, or you're going to pull out now. What's so special about Tuesday?
  • Finally, anyone using the Safari web browser may spot an addition to the Live Commenting Live... Thing - a checkbox to activate an alert when new comments come in. At the moment, it defaults to on, which means you'll hear a maraca sound each time there are new comments. We will default it to off, but are just going through the motions of testing it out at the moment. Let us know what you think.

That'll do it for now. Monday means back to work which means we're already on the road to Silverstone, not literally of course. Let us know if you are making preparations for the big trip though, and we'll listen jealously. I'll see you in the comments.
