It's turning out to be quite a difficult week at Sidepodcast HQ, as we stumble from one disaster to the next. That being the case, I would like all comments today to be happy and fluffy. Don't make me start going on about rolling meadows and whiskers on kittens and stuff like that. So, here are some of the things on our minds:

  • Thank goodness for Alonso's move to Ferrari being confirmed already, as the driver market has finally opened up. Renault confirmed their new signing of Robert Kubica for 2010 yesterday, and I have a feeling it won't be long before we're looking at the next announcement as well. Is Kubica a good fit for Renault? Discuss on the breakout thread.
  • Lukeh has written us a guest post with a great background into how and why he made the Ari Vatanen support video. You can read more about it there, and join in the calls for Lukeh to write some more. Particularly if it's about changing Formula 1 for the better!
  • In the last little bit of self-promotion for today, I released the first of a new series of Forgotten F1 Teams yesterday. It's about time we had another mini series, and it seemed right to look back at some of the teams we have lost, as we are currently fighting off more teams than you can shake a stick at. Enjoy yesterday's show and stay tuned for today's.

That'll do it for now. It's Thursday which means we are almost at the end of the week, and that can only be a good thing. I'll see you in the comments.
