With both Goodwood and Wimbledon over and done with, it's time to regroup and turn our attention back to Formula 1. Sadly, there is little going on at the moment, but things should be ramping up towards the German Grand Prix as the week progresses. Meanwhile, here are some things we're talking about (and it's all self promotion today):

  • We're in the midst of my latest mini series now, with five episodes under our belts. Yesterday's episode focused on the process of how an accident is dealt with, including notes on the Safety Car and on the different types of flags.
  • We also spent some time yesterday rehearsing things and improving some of the technology we use to produce live shows. We went live for some of the process, and it can be replayed here, but don't panic, there is nothing major in there if you missed it. If you've got a spare two hours, though, feel free to listen to us muddle our way through.
  • During yesterday's show, to pass some of the time, we came up with a game where you simply have to sum up each driver in three words. A good example from Steven about Vettel: "Ain’t no Schumi." And I came up with "Dangerous Whilst Pitting" for Nakajima. Have a think and see what you can come up with you.

That'll do it for now. Please feel free to discuss your adventures, if you were out and about this weekend, and discuss anything on your mind if you weren't. I'll see you in the comments.
