Following on from yesterday's discovery of what kind of holiday it was, today I can tell you it is St George's Day. It's not a bank holiday, though, so it's off to work as normal for us at Sidepodcast Towers. Anyway, here's some F1 stuff to discuss:

  • Supposedly, AUTOSPORT has found that Red Bull are looking into maybe switching engine supplier next year. The article suggests reading the magazine for more information, but from the quotes they've published on the site, the only hint that Horner is looking at Mercedes is he referenced Brawn's ability to switch at the last minute.
  • Force India will be bringing lots of new parts to Bahrain, including a new floor and the ever-popular rear diffuser. The front wing and sidepods will also get some slight revisions, so will we see improved performance in the desert?
  • Finally, am slowly catching up with my feed reader, and discovered Dan Brunell's latest Power Rankings on his Racing Eagles blog. Definitely worth a good look, and there's even a little joke at the bottom.

That'll do it for now. Don't forget there's plenty of podcasting goodness been released this week to keep you busy: F1 Debrief, Sidepodchat, Sidepodpanel. While you catch up with those, I'll see you in the comments.
