I hope everyone had a good New Year's Day. We've just heard some fireworks going off, meaning that someone is celebrating exactly 24 hours too late. Bless them. It's been a quiet day in F1, which means there's only one news story to talk about, but we've been filling our time with other things.

  • Apparently, Hakkinen supports Bernie's medal idea. Well, he said it was interesting, and I guess that counts as support, doesn't it?
  • We're still looking for people to join in our Sidepodcast BatRacer game. All the details can be found in the Wiki, thanks to Scott Woodwiss for setting it up and writing a guide. If you want to join in the fun, head over to Batracer with a password of sidepodcast.
  • The Sidepodcast header poll is now closed, and Mark Webber beat Ferrari 21-20 points. That's a close one, just like the '08 championship. Thanks to everyone that voted, and the header will be refreshed later today.

Don't feel constrained by anything I've listed above. The Daily thread is your place to discuss anything on your mind, whether it's related to Formula 1, to other motorsports, or any other topic you feel like. I will see you in the comments.
