Uh-oh, it's the dreaded Thursday. Last week I had to stare at pictures of baby panda's all day to make it bearable. If only I had a baby panda, that wouldn't be necessary. Anyway, where was I? Oh yes, F1 discussions:

  • Williams have lost yet another sponsor from the end of 2010, in the form of RBS. There's plenty of time for them to find a replacement, so it's not panic stations yet. Frank himself is confident the team will get through these difficult times.
  • Force India turned up at Silverstone today, apparently, to run a super-secret, hush-hush shakedown. No news on who was driving, or how they feel the car went, but at least it is something from the team who haven't been seen since Brazil.
  • If you haven't read it yet, check out Stuart's guest post on the subject of moaning about F1. It's an interesting topic, and one very relevant to us here at Sidepodcast. I still maintain the rear wings are fugly though!

That'll do for now. Hopefully we will hear more about the Sidepodtrip to the KERS lecture in London throughout the day. Either way, I'll see you in the comments.
