Race day in Turkey, and we're looking forward to it in Sidepodcast Towers, it's been a good weekend so far and hopefully the race will live up to expectations. Here are some of the things we're talking about:

  • What was up with Alonso so that he could only qualify eighth with a ridiculously light car? We all know that the Renault is slow, and Piquet couldn't keep the darn thing pointing in the right direction, but this is Alonso we're talking about. Give him a light car and he should know what to do with it.
  • Hamilton is already turning his attention to 2010, although perhaps only really hinting at it. His actual quotes suggest that he knows this year is a struggle and basically a write off, so he's looking forward to the McLaren comeback next year... if there is a next year, I suppose.
  • We have finally managed to blog about the potential Lotus meetup. We've only been promising to do so for a couple of weeks now, so it's about time we got round to it. All the details you need to know are here, and we hope you can make it.

That'll do it for now. Don't forget you can catch up with all of yesterdays action in F1 Digest, in case you missed it or if you want a quick refresher. There'll be plenty of live threads popping up throughout the day, so I'll see you in the comments.
