Hello and welcome to Thursday! It's not normally a good day for the Sidepodcommunity, but we will instead concentrate on good things. Congratulations to Jon who passed his driving test a couple of days ago. Also celebrations for Alex who got a promotion yesterday, which is awesome. We'll also keep our fingers crossed for Amy who is in the process of attempting to get a promotion.
- Talking of Amy, she is spearheading the breakfast effort in Australia, meeting up with other F1-bound visitors to chat and talk and eat croissants or similar. We seem to have a record number of Sidepodvisitors to this Grand Prix, so we've set them up with a dedicated thread.
- The subject of meetups is a popular one at the moment as well, because there's a London meetup in the planning stages - with more information available on the wiki. If you're available in the midst of April, head on over and note your name down. Sidepodmeetups are the best!
- With the refuelling ban still a hot topic, Leigh has written a post about the change in regulations, asking if the ban came too soon. It's probably worth plugging Steven's post again as there has been lots of debate in the comments. If you read the post and moved on, please head on back and see what other people are saying about the way F1 should be.
That's all for today, don't forget we've got all the preview information you need ahead of the Australia weekend - including maps and schedules, plus the Digest Preview podcast as well. That should keep you busy for a while, and then I will see you in the comments.
