It's Thursday already, and whilst this is not a revered day amongst the Sidepodcommunity, we are hurtling towards the Goodwood weekend. A few people are heading to the Festival of Speed, and I bet the excitement is building. Don't forget to leave us a voicemail from the grounds, if you are going: 0121 28 87225. Meanwhile, here's what we're talking about:

  • Timo Glock has revealed his optimistic side by suggesting that it isn't out of the realms of possibility that Toyota could win a race this year. That's actually as far as he goes though, admitting that he's careful when it comes to talking about the team's first win. I guess he doesn't want to jinx it?
  • On the subject of wins, Nick Fry has come out in support of Barrichello saying that he is overdue a win. I've just realised that we see a lot less of Mr Fry since he had to stop wearing those green trousers. It's much better that he is behind the scenes, wouldn't you say?
  • My new mini series started yesterday, so if you haven't heard it yet, please check out F1 Safety - Helmets and Clothing. There will be six more short shows over the next few nights, so we'll be covering all sorts of safety aspects of the sport.

That's it for now. As ever, feel free to discuss what's on your mind, and don't feel constrained by what I've mentioned above. I'll see you in the comments.
