It is supposedly the shortest day of the year today, which means that after today, the evenings will be getting lighter again. This is good as seeing the darkness come in before 4pm each day is not much fun at all! It also means we are really into Christmas, and the F1 news should be slowing down. Good stuff! Meanwhile, here is what we're talking about today:

  • It was the Sidepodcast Christmas Party last night where we handed out a bunch of awards for good and bad performance throughout the year, drank some wine, pulled some crackers and sang a Christmas Carol. Check out the replay which should be available soonish, and the edited show will be along later.
  • Our displaced F1 Debrief that was recorded live on Saturday was edited yesterday, so you can listen to that here. We discuss all manner of things, including the new teams and their signings, plus Michael Schumacher and his future. I remember the days when retirement was retirement!
  • Guest writer, (or should that be guest artist?) Stuart Taylor shared a great season review with us in the form of some illustrations. I am jealous of anyone who can draw like that and particularly like the depiction of Bernie Ecclestone. Head on over and have a look, and why not rate the post?

That'll do it for now. It's Monday again, but the holidays are drawing near, if you are not in them already. Let us know what you're up to and I'll see you in the comments.
