Good morning, Sidepodcasters!

Are you enjoying this long weekend? The Royal Wedding was celebrated yesterday, and yes! Finally William and Kate got married in Westminster Abbey, but, talking in terms of money, was the wedding good for the British economy?

If you live in Britain you are heading into the second day of this particular weekend. If not, don't worry. The world is very big and full of unlucky people, who had to go to work/study yesterday... Yes, I didn't stay resting at home, instead of this I got up at 06:30am and went to my High School. How lovely my routine is!

Would you like to take a look at the images of the Royal Wedding? Here is a gallery, made by the BBC, and here is another, made by the Spanish newspaper 'La Vanguardia'.

Let's talk about Formula 1. Jarno Trulli thinks drivers would spend too much time focused on pressing the right buttons if the FIA allowed them to use the DRS system in Monaco. Talking to Autosport, he said:

It is not a benefit and won't help you at all for overtaking, so I don't think there is any point to run it.

Adam Parr is confident about Williams. He thinks the season has just started, and Williams can still bounce back.

We come here to win, but we've finished eighth, seventh and sixth in the last three years and I wanted to take another step. So fifth, minimum would be good. We are only three races in, this is a long season and it's not game over yet.

Rubens Barrichello has been interviewed by F1's website journalists, who asked the Brazilian driver about his thoughts about the sport, in a fantasy way. He'd like F1 to race at Argentina and Rio, his fantasy teammate would be Ayrton Senna and, if he was a team boss, his perfect line up would be Lewis Hamilton and Robert Kubica. Do you want a read more?.

Yesterday Nicolas Hamilton, Lewis Hamilton's brother, survived a big crash in a testing session. He is OK, but he might not be able to race this weekend.

This weekend F3 Euroseries' drivers are competing at the Hockenheim circuit. The Spaniards drivers Roberto Merhi and Daniel Juncadella set the two fastest times of the first Qualifying (the one that decides driver's positions on the grid for the first race), while the German Marco Whittmann got the pole on the second Qualifying (relevant for the third race of the weekend). You can visit F3 Euroseries official website for more info.

So those are some of the highlights of the four-wheeled motorsports, but there's a MotoGP Grand Prix this weekend too!

Have a great day!
