Ah, it was an eventful day yesterday both on and off track in Bahrain, and back here in Sidepodcast Towers. Here are some of the things you might have missed:

  • Brawn GP have started to wonder whether it is their one-lap pace that is letting them down in qualifying, which equally has a knock-on effect going into the Grand Prix in itself. Button lines up behine Toyota and Red Bull on the grid, with Barrichello further behind. Branson must still have faith in them though, as he is in Bahrain to discuss further sponsorship.
  • In Sidepodcast news, you may have noticed the Doohickey as disappeared, and is currently redirecting to the LCLT. We got in a bit of a mess with comments yesterday and couldn't afford the admin overhead to sort out all the posts to the correct threads. Apologies for anyone this inconveniences, but we're doing our best to rectify the situation.
  • And of course, it would be remiss of me to not point out the good luck charm I have sent Felipe's way. It's great fun to record a song about F1, and there seems to be some interest in the comments to do the same. I encourage everyone to do so, as RG has set up a wiki page to catalogue all our efforts.

That'll do it for now. We're mostly counting down the hours till the racing starts, and then once that's done, it'll be looking forward to the podcasts. See you in the (LCLT) comments.
