Although I was looking forward to the four day weekend, it now has me thoroughly confused. I've already had one day off and yet it is still only just Saturday. We've got Free Practice and Qualifying in Malaysia today, so expect threads aplenty, but meanwhile, here are some of the things we're talking about:

  • Yesterday, we had the opportunity to catch up with frequent commenter and F1 journalist Stuart Codling for a full length chat, which in turn became a Sidepodchat podcast. It was great fun to record and edit, so I hope you enjoy listening as we discuss the finer points of his brand new book, how F1 photography is changing, and hear a hair-raising tale of passports and visas.
  • James Allen has taken a closer look at what makes the front wings so special, and uncovers the secret of last year's Brawn GP speed as well. Rather than the double diffuser debate, James pays close attention what he calls an "outwash" front wing. Interesting stuff!
  • Don't forget to make your Sofa F1 pole poll predictions. You've got until qualifying begins, and Alex's new system of making your selection is really rather fun. I do find it too easy just to drag and drop without putting too much thought into it though. No wonder I'm so far down the league.

That's all for today. I hope you'll be watching qualifying along with us today, you know the live comments will be waiting for you with added Factbyte Factbox. As ever, I will see you in the comments.
