We are midway through the week now, and apparently this is the 280th day of the year. That is quite a lot of the year gone already, huh? Still, here are some of the things we're talking about:

  • As we're looking at where we are in the year, it's interesting to look at what we were talking about this time last year. Over on F1 Minute, we were discussing BMWs decision to retain their drivers for this season, plus the Ferrari complaints about Singapore. BMW and Singapore are both topics on our minds in 2009, but for very different reasons.
  • Here on Sidepodcast, albeit on the 5th October last year, we adopted a panda, who is now a bit of a diva who likes to star on the live streams. We also spent that day listening to the excellent Tremayning work done by the community. We really need to do that again, I think.
  • Back to the present, sort of, Alex came up with a brilliant question yesterday: "I thought it might be nice to go for a bit of a positive vibe today. So I would love to hear who your #F1Hero is. These could be serious like Fangio, or comical like Montoya’s personal chef. But whatever they are the idea is to say who it is and why you think they are your #F1Hero." You may have answered already, but if not, let us know what you think, and perhaps we'll compile them on the wiki.

That'll do it for now, I reckon. Mr C is officially addicted to the doohickey, so if you see him around this evening, tell him to get on with the homepage. I'll see you in the comments.
