We are halfway through the week now, and it seems as though things are getting nasty in the world of F1. Piquet's having a go at Renault, Ferrari are having a go at Williams, who's next? Meanwhile, here at Sidepodcast, we're being nice to each other! Here are some of the topics we're talking about:

  • F1.com have a round up of what the drivers will be doing over their summer holidays. My favourite thing about this post is that I have now learned Fisichella has a boat called Fizzy!
  • Pat wrote a post yesterday to celebrate the one year anniversary of his home on the web. It's always interesting to look back at where you started, and see how far you've come, so here's to Pat and bring on the next year!
  • On the blogging subject, Maverick has written an excellent post (with added graphs!) about the state of overtaking in Formula 1 at the moment. You probably know plenty about how little overtaking there is, but Maverick makes some great points along the way.
  • We also have more information about the inaugural F1 Rocks concert which will take place at Singapore. The silly Black Eyed Peas and Beyonce are taking the headlines away from Backstreet Boys, who are heading up the concerts organised by the circuit themselves. Grr.

That'll do it for now. If you've been following the safari park saga (no pandas, pah!), then the photos are finally up. I will see you in the comments.
