Good morning. It is going to be a lovely day for me with all my favourites playing tennis today, so I do wish it will be a good day for all of you too. In other (more F1 related) news:

  • Amy suggests that F1 should also have a karaoke session Roland Garros style. I (heart)ily agree.
  • Rubens Barrichello's awesomeness is spreading through Twitter. Are you following him yet?
  • He is not the only one making waves though. Lukeh has been retweeted by Claire of Williams.
  • Wet weather is not only invading the F1 season in real life, but also in virtual reality.
  • Jon gets the job that everyone wants. Except for maybe the having to work with Darth part.
  • Christine's rankings are up. Amy wants Heikki to overtake Karun, but the 9 point gap seems a little too large to overcome for now. Christine also blogs on Karun's 24th May in 2008.
  • By the way, Karun also names his engines. Unlike Sebastian's habit, naming engines makes no sense since you will change it regularly and it may very well blow up. But whatever makes him happy, I guess.
  • Alex Snell's highlights on his F1 world tour is now on Sidepodcast. I am really jealous indeed.
  • Sidepodcast has been through a lot recently. Mr C blogs on what could have been, should have been, and how our homepage became what it is now. And has a word with Sir Geoff on what fans really want.
  • England's 2012 Olympics doesn't seem to be proceeding along very well. I now really hope that the world cup doesn't end up there too. #supportsrussia
  • Pat has a song to recommend. It is pretty catchy (and gets stuck in your head).
  • I have been rather busy lately what with the Champions League final, the French Open and all. Yet I still found time to collate my pictures (taken on my handy Motorola Milestone) and blog on my visit to the Marina Bay Circuit. Warning: not dial-up friendly!
  • And a very happy birthday to James!

This week is going to be a bumper weekend with F1 Turkish GP, WRC Rally Portugal and Indianapolis 500. Don't you wish the week would end already?
