It's tough being an F1 fan at the moment. If you're on Twitter, all you need is the hashtag #f1happyplace and you'll be fine. Whilst you're having a look at that, here are some SPC things to chat about:

  • Once again, Jake Humphrey has provided some great insights into the life of a BBC anchor, and what one gets up to when there's no racing to get excited about. Good to know that he misses F1 when it's not around.
  • F1 Punter has some thoughts about the upcoming race and the chances of seeing the safety car. We know that last year's German GP helped Piquet to his first F1 podium, all thanks to the SC, but this time we're at the Nurburgring rather than Hockenheim, so how will that affect things?
  • On the very sore subject of politics, Maverick has some interesting thoughts on the Pitlane Fanatic Blog, and Joe has also summed it all up in a great post, and really... in the title itself - SOS in morse code..

That should do it for now. It's really tme to start turning our attention to the German GP (the Preview Digest will help), so let us know what you are expecting from the upcoming race. I'll see you in the comments.
