A nice, relaxing Saturday in store for Sidepodcast Towers. I intend to spend a good hour or so reading through F1 Racing before getting on with the usual weekend stuff. What are you guys up to?

  • We saw the new and official Williams livery yesterday, with some new pictures released. The blue is much brighter than I was expecting, and we have yet to spot the new sponsor that was talked about last week. The big news is the flip ups by the cockpit though - how are they getting away with that?
  • Kyle Busch has pondered the possibility of joining F1 for a couple of years, just to have a bit of fun, before returning to the day job. As a NASCAR man, it would take more than a couple of years to get success, wouldn't it?
  • The speculation is hyping up again that the FIA are looking at the budget caps option as a way of cutting costs in the future. There's no confirmation of this, but I hope it's not true. I was in favour of budget caps before, but am now convinced they wouldn't be able to police it at all.

That should do it for now. If you were taking part in the Batracer 1986 game, you'll need the updated details for the game, which should be starting soon. Meanwhile, I'll see you in the comments.
