It's Friday night/Saturday morning and that must mean it is my turn to write the daily again. I am so loving the variety we're getting with multiple daily authors, thanks must go once again to our fabulous volunteers. If you want to have a go but don't fancy a regular stint, just let me know and you can take over this Saturday as a one-off, if you so desire. Anyway, on to fun things:

  • The above picture is courtesy of Lou who designed us a fabulous piece of art, just because. It's so amazing, encompassing everything that Sidepodcast is about, and we're so grateful for it. It was supposed to be handed over at the London meetup that we didn't attend due to general F1 anger issues, but we're pretty sure that would have cheered us up.
  • F1 is back in action, with Free Practice Friday under our belts and some more practice and qualifying sessions still to come. So far, the track action itself hasn't been incredible, but it's been fun looking at the motorhomes again, and feeling the general enthusiasm from the paddock now that we are back in Europe.
  • There's a great post from Joe about secret goings on at the Toyota team - not only their future plans but also a potential send off for John Howett. I'm a big fan of Mr Howett as he spent a lot of time on Sidepodcast TV discussing the upcoming races. It looks like he might have crashed an F1 car. Oops.

That should do it for now. I hope you'll join us for live commenting throughout the day, and begin making predictions for the race tomorrow. Let us know who you've selected for your Fantasy Racers team, and I will see you in the comments.
