No one could have predicted the qualifying order from yesterday, and I wouldn't ask you to have a guess at what's going to happen in the race today. It was great fun though, and am expecting more of the same. Here are some of the things we're talking about:

  • Fisichella and his pole position makes us even more sure that qualifying is better than the race itself, so much so that we decided to hold a poll about it. We prefer Saturday to Sunday but what do you think?
  • Continuing on the same theme, it's worth noting that our results posts for qualifying now have added graph goodness. It's really just there to help me make notes for the Digest, but it adds a bit of colour to the post as well. As Maverick points out in the comments, he has better graphs over on Pitlane Fanatic.
  • Don't forget, if you've got an hour to spare before the race this morning, head back here to tune in to the Parade Lap. Host Alex will guide us through fun and games, as he lives out his radio DJ dreams. He's written about that here, so please tune in to support him.

That'll do it for now, it's going to be a busy day today, but stay tuned to Sidepodcast throughout as we try and figure out what on earth is going on in Belgium. I will see you in the comments.
