The bracing wind in Germany affects some more than others

Hello lovely people, it is Monday and this is your daily for today. Doesn't Mark Webber look cold in that picture? The weather in Germany was a lot cooler than we were expecting, although the rain never came. Every time there is never a sign of rain, despite all weather forecasts saying there will be some, I swear off predicting the weather. But every time a race swings by, I start pondering what the weather will be again. It's addictive.

Next weekend is the Hungarian Grand Prix, back to back racing, and Luiz Razia has turned up a little bit early. He tweeted that he'd arrived at the airport last night:

Anyone in Budapest? Just arrives at airport, head to the hotel in 30min, it is raining a lot here and is not so warm! See ya chaps!

Another cold weekend! Will that favour Ferrari again? Is it too early to start predicting things?

Yes, yes it is. We still have the antics from the Nürburgring to ponder. If you need any recaps, we've got you covered here on Sidepodcast, and over on F1 Minute. Here are some links you may need:

Mr C wanted me to let you all know that the F1Minute app is available in 33 more countries than it was before. If you're in Iceland, you can buy it in your own store now. Fabulous.

Other race related things: Make sure you check out Lukeh's review. The good news is that Fernando Alonso had enough fuel in his car to get away with the post-race scrutineering, and Mark Webber was not penalised for his taxi-service. We managed to catch some great pictures on Posterous. Although there are good safety reasons why the FIA don't want to encourage such behaviour, it's always fun to see drivers do something a little out of the ordinary. Last race Alonso was running along to catch the driver's parade, this time he's hitching a lift on a Red Bull ride. What will he do next week?

In non-F1 bits and bobs, our podcasting hero Leo Laporte has moved to a new studio. After being tucked away at the TWiT cottage, he's now somewhere a little bigger. A sneak peek before they went live showed how shiny the new place is. Mmm, studio.

A while back Mr C and I were talking about the short web series Everything is a Remix, and that's become something of a oft-used phrase at Sidepodcast HQ these days. Part 3 is available to enjoy, with one final part to come soon. I also like they are encouraging remixing the videos, so that means remixing the work on remixes. All a bit meta, but very cool.

Finally, if you've got a spare few minutes, why not have a guess at these final movie scenes? Kottke blogged about it a while ago, and Mr C and I pooled our limited film knowledge to get 21 right. The answers are at the bottom of the page. Let us know how you get on.

Have a good day, keep it positive, and I'll see you in the comments!
