It is the day after Bonfire Night, so hopefully it is all peaceful now the fireworks have been used up. Unless there are going to be more at the weekend. Oh dear. Well, it's Friday today, Thursday is done, so nothing will get us down. Here are some of the things we're talking about:

  • Yesterday, we had quite the discussion about Renault and their non news. Mr Ghosn has said we need to be patient and wait for a decision, but it seems as though little snippets still keep appearing about what is going to happen to the team in the future. I am happy to wait for an official announcement. Anyone else?
  • We realised that it will be time for some best of podcasts soon, so a wiki page has emerged for you guys to log your favourite moments from the year of Sidepodcast. We're talking F1 Debriefs and stuff from the live streams. As pointed out in the comments, so far it very much seems like a place to collate Mr C's useless moments!
  • Talking about Toyota's exit, Christian Horner said that although it was a shame, he still thinks that F1 is in good shape at the moment, and with 13 teams still keen to be involved, it isn't time to panic yet. Yet! He also said that FOTA is doing some great work, but... what have they done recently?

That's all for now. Let us know what you've got planned for the weekend, particularly if it's very exciting, but also if it is simply sitting back and watching TV. I will see you in the comments.
