Welcome to the fourth day of the sixth month of 2009 - the 155th day of the year, with 210 to go before the year end. It was a relatively quiet day yesterday, the quiet before the Turkish storm, you might say. Here are some of the things on our minds:

  • Talking of storms, it looks as though there could be some rain in Turkey today, but the rest of the weekend is due to be sunny. If this rain takes it's time getting to the track though, it could affect some of the early proceedings over the weekend. Keep your eyes peeled for the weather as we head towards Friday.
  • The Backpacker is back, and her guide to F1 is gradually being updated. She's disappeared over the last month or so, but has plenty of insight into the last few races now.
  • You voted in your droves but finally we have crowned the winner of the 2009 Sidepodcast Circuit Character Cup. Spa won the vote by an impressive 126 votes to Monaco's 30 - and was winning by a majority for most of the day, including the extra half hour as we forgot to close the polls. Nevertheless, we will crown the circuit soon, and look forward to the race there later in the year.

That'll do it for now. Your F1 Digest preview for Turkey is already up and waiting to be listened to, if you haven't already. As ever, I will see you in the comments.
