Ah-ha, the end of the week at last, and another weekend just around the corner. It's been a nice slow end to the week in terms of F1 news, but I have a feeling (and Joe said) it's all going to start kicking off again next week. Meanwhile, here's what we're focusing on instead:

  • We started turning our attention towards the Sidepodparty yesterday, and came up with the Christmas Carol that will replace the 12 days of Christmas. Last year, during the party, we all took turns to sing an F1 themed 12 days, and this time it's all about Jingle Bells. Naturally, we've set up a wiki page for alternative lyrics and volunteer voices.
  • Yesterday's Thursday Thoughts was a good one, taking a closer look at the possibility of a group launch by FOTA rather than the individual team launches we know and love. We had some great answers from Lukeh, Jackie, Pat, Sean and Lady Snowcat. Mr C said he was writing one, but I haven't seen it yet, so it will have to be a Friday thought instead.
  • Finally, we did a bit of an F1 Minute catchup yesterday, posting two of everything. There are two delicious shows about Donington and FOTA, whilst the Big Picture took a slight turn away from normal programming to feature DTM cars and politicians.

That's all for now, I think. As ever, let us know what you're up to over the weekend and if you have anything exciting planned. Watch out for the Friday Fun game appearing later in the morning, and I will see you in the comments.
