Today was looking to be pretty low on F1 related fun, until we discovered that Fantasy Racers was up and running for 2009. There was suddenly a flurry of action as we tried to think up some new team names, decide that our old names will do, create the Sidepodcast league, and get all signed up. Either way, you can read all about it here. Elsewhere today:

  • Sidepodcast Diaries is back! There'll be a blog post along soon to re-introduce it properly, but if you feel like checking it out before I get round to that, then head on over to the Wiki where I've set up it's own little Diaries home.
  • Schumacher's words from yesterday caused a discussion in the comments over drivers moving teams. Is it easier to judge a driver if he's been through a few teams? Or is loyalty something to be commended? Check through some of the comments yesterday, and join in the debate today.
  • The BATRacer game still has spaces available, if you're interested. Scott has written a brilliant guide if you're a newbie to the site - like myself and Mr C - but if you've never played before or are an expert, head on over and sign up. The password is sidepodcast

That'll do for today. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for some actual F1 news, as things were very slow yesterday. However, the comments were still excellent, so keep up the good work, everyone, and I'll see you there.
