Another day closer to the Bahrain Grand Prix, but we're still getting to grips with what happened in China first. These back-to-back races are not popular in Sidepodcast Towers. Anyway, here are some of the things up for discussion today:

  • The Shanghai edition of AUTOSPORT's Paddock Life sums up a lot of the questions we had over the weekend. The explanation for Vettel's car sticker, why Bernie really likes China, and how Ferrari paid their respects to the earthquake victims in Italy, all that is in there. My favourite bit is more madness from Flav, though.
  • Webber's BBC column is an interesting read, if only to hear directly from him about finishing second. He reviews the race and then looks forward to Bahrain with: "It is a good little track for overtaking, Bahrain..." Condescending, much?
  • Ollie has a summary of Adrian Sutil's bad luck over at BlogF1, which got me thinking. Will Force India ever score a championship point? Should Adrian be looking elsewhere to try his hand at finishing in the top 8? Or is it Sutil who is the bad luck charm at the moment?

That'll do it for now. Feel free to discuss whatever is on your mind, the above topic list is just a suggestion. I'll see you in the comments.
