It's the day after the night before and I can only imagine what kind of sugar hangover I will have after all that Milky Bar. Nevertheless, the week goes on, and here are some of the things we're talking about at the moment:

  • Nick Heidfeld has been blown away by the number of submissions for his helmet design competition, with other 5,000 to date. Apparently one of the designs is a panoramic view of the Nurburgring, which can only be described as bizarre. If you haven't had a go yet, head on over to the site to submit your design. (Please note, we still think Button's competition is better.)
  • I had an overdose of more than just sugar yesterday, when a host of Franck pictures hit the Sidepodcast drop. Firstly, James made me an awesome Franck montage, whilst Gavin - newly returned from Le Mans - has pictures of the man on the start line. Yay for pictures.
  • In actual F1 news, Renault have defended Piquet's um, Piquetness, by suggesting that he is still learning, still inexperienced, and if there is no confidence in the car, how can they expect confidence in the driver? I would suggest that a lack of confidence is not the problem Piquet has.

Those are just some of the things we've been thinking about, if you have any more to add, please feel free to use the daily post to discuss anything on your mind. Yesterday, we managed to combine conversation about both politics and kettles in the same thread, so anything goes. I'll see you in the comments.
