Saturday at long last, and it is still that pesky racing show taking up all the headlines. Actually there were not that many yesterday, except from a certain Jon Waldock who tweeted that he spotted Franck, and just at the thought of him being there, I got all giggly, so it's a good thing we didn't go this year. Anyway, here are some of the things we're up to:

  • There seems to be a lot of talk about Twitter at the moment, as we suddenly realised there are certain members of the Sidepodcommunity who passed the 9,000 tweet mark and that pretty much blew our minds. Mr C is somewhere in the late 3,000s whilst I still have yet to reach 1k. We really must tweet more. This also seems like a good opportunity to plug the SPC Twitter list on the playground.
  • We've got another great guest post from Steven, taking a look at the history of another driver in F1, and particularly at some of the safety aspects in the sport. Don't forget if you have an idea for a guest post, we are all ears!
  • I also want to plug this week's Friday Fun, because although it is no longer Friday, it really is a good one. Try and fit in as many song lyrics from a particular band in a made up F1 related press release. It's sometimes easy, sometimes hard, depending on which artist you pick. If you haven't had a go already, please do, we're really enjoying reading them.

That will do for now. It turns out we're not doing a live show this weekend, so ignore what the calendar says. However, I will see you in the comments.
