Thursday has arrived and although it is an unpopular day amongst Sidepodcast readers, I am determined we should all make the most of it. To help us along the way, here are some of the things we're talking about:

  • Pitlane Fanatic have kicked off a great new series of posts, going deeper into some of the well-used phrases of an F1 weekend. This first entry looks at the racing line, particularly when cornering, and how getting it right can affect your performance when you come out of the corner. A very insightful post.
  • James Allen has shared the latest in the Schumacher rumours, and although the speculation hasn't stopped, it still seems to be erring on the side of unlikely. I also enjoyed James' top 5 drivers post, where at the bottom he picks some winners of his book. He follows it by saying, if you didn't win, still buy the book anyway! Made me chuckle.
  • Meanwhile, it seems like Simon Gillett just isn't ready to give up on the British GP dream, despite the fact that his company have gone into administration. He thinks the possibility is still there for a buyer to come in and save the day. Hmm.

That's all for now. Let us know what you're up to today and how your week is panning out, and I will see you in the comments.
