Thursday is upon us again, and as ever, it was not a quiet day in the world of Formula 1 yesterday. I am sure I mentioned hoping for a bit of peace, so if I do that again today, what on earth else will happen? Anyway, here are some of the things we're talking about:

  • Naturally, the number one topic on everybody's lips is goodbye Flav and Pat. Naturally, there was a breakout thread, and Mr Briatore also featured on our F1 Big Picture yesterday. The conversation continues, and I guess what we really want now, is to hear from Pat.
  • Elsewhere in the news, Williams are confident that going back to the higher downforce circuits will see them return to form, after a couple of races with badly behaving cars. It's funny, I don't really remember them being on particularly good form before, but perhaps they can end the season on a high.
  • RG has written a great post about Paul di Resta and his chances of making it out of DTM. I don't really give much thought to drivers until they get to F1, but it is always good to take a step back and see where they are coming from (or not, as the case may be).

That'll do it for now. The usual Sidepodradio plug applies here: 0121 28 87225 for your shoutouts and transitions, please. You know we'll love you forever if you call. I'll see you in the comments.
