On this day, six years ago, the US government confirmed the existence of Area 51. I know this isn't even remotely F1 related, but I do find the relation between potential extraterrestrial life and certain paddock regulars an interesting concept. Anyway, here are some of the things we've been up to:

  • The final F1 Digest for the German GP weekend is finished and ready for listening, and it rounds out the weekend nicely. One thing I have noticed following the race is Horner's comments about Webber. Whilst saying he did a great job, he also mentions how annoyed they were that the Australian didn't mention his injured shoulder over the winter, and that Newey isn't happy about the extra weight in a leg full of metal. Full of sympathy that team, aren't they?
  • There are lots of fun things going on in the wiki following the Parade Lap this weekend. We've got Giggles Made-Up Media, otherwise known as GMM, plus Sidepodbond Film Titles and Sidepodale. All of these are pretty explanatory, I reckon, so head on over to the wiki and add your thoughts.
  • In a slightly less fun, but just as important and interesting wiki addition, we've put up a page for anyone wishing to sign up to help with show transcripts to sign up. All the information you need is on the page, with an example of a completed show as well. We've had two volunteers already - RG and James - so join these excellent peeps and get writing.

That should keep you busy for a while, I guess. Mr C is busy planning a trip to Oviedo in Spain so he can see Mr Alonso in action. I am not so keen. Anyway, I will see you in the comments.

    Ooh! Extra terrestrial stuff. I find all that kinda fascinating and totally not because of a certain band seem to implement all sorts of conpiracy theories into their music. Nope sireee.

    I wonder which area has more secrets - the F1 paddock or Area 51?

  • Steven Roy13/07/2009 at 23:32

    On this day, six years ago, the US governement confirmed the existence of Area 51. I know this isn’t even remotely F1 related,

    It's amazing the things that find their way on to the daily post. I didn't know they admitted Area 51 exists even though it has been obvious for many years that it does.

    and that Newey isn’t happy about the extra weight in a leg full of metal. Full of sympathy that team, aren’t they?

    I assume the Newey comment is a joke.

  • Nick13/07/2009 at 23:37

    I assume the Newey comment is a joke.

    It sounded like it.. Or maybe he really cares that much!

    Did we forget to do the guess giggles memorabilia thing in the parade lap on Sunday?

    Ah, not the worst problem in the world!

  • Steven Roy13/07/2009 at 23:42

    I think we just ran out of time. That was about the fastest hour I can remember.

    It sounded like it.. Or maybe he really cares that much!

    At least the metal in the leg gives more forward weight distribution.

  • Nick13/07/2009 at 23:44

    He should have his legs chopped of and replaced with lightweight carbon fibre then they can put lead weights in his feet

  • me13/07/2009 at 23:56

    ahh, that seems like a good place to leave it tonight :)

  • Nick13/07/2009 at 23:56

    I wonder if there are rules about that sort of thing...I am sure it will become an issue sooner or later.

    nah.

    a) i agree with what he did.

    b) anyone can make a mistake once. schumi made those "mistakes" 4, 5, 6 times.

    light years of difference. anyhoo, another day.

    I didn't even realise the All star game was this soon. They only finished voting last week

  • Nick14/07/2009 at 00:09

    I thought i caught the end of it the other night from Seattle, must have been a warm up or an old one.

  • Steven Roy14/07/2009 at 00:11

    I have a feed

  • Nick14/07/2009 at 00:14

    I think F1 should have some sort of All star event.

    Probably at the end of the season so it would be more like the pro bowl.

    It would give them a big televised event to present the world championship trophy's.

  • Nick14/07/2009 at 00:16

    Was that not part of it then?

  • Steven Roy14/07/2009 at 00:18

    I think F1 should have some sort of All star event.

    It used to be great when the top drivers went to the Bercy karting event. IROC was orignally set up to get the best drivers form al over the world together but that just turned into a NASCAR benefit.

    Procar was good as well in the late 70s when on the Sunday morning of a GP a grid full of BMW M1s raced and the 5 fastest qualifiers from the GP raced against the regulars.

    I would love to see an end of season event with the top F1 drivers, top sportscar drivers and IRL, NASCAR etc in equal cars or karts.

  • Paul14/07/2009 at 00:19

    Isn't that the idea behind the race of champions?

  • Pat W14/07/2009 at 00:20

    Right that's a big chunk of my Google Reader caught up with, still loads to go though :-)

    See ya tomorrow.

  • Pat W14/07/2009 at 00:21

    Isn't that the idea behind the race of champions?

    The original one was a good idea, moving to a stadium should have worked but the track is too small

  • Paul14/07/2009 at 00:22

    I have no idea what that means.

    Night Pat.

  • Nick14/07/2009 at 00:23

    Isn't that the idea behind the race of champions?

    Yeah, but i would love to see an F1 only one. All the teams and drivers.

    They could have

    Knockout drag races

    Fastest Pit stop challenge

    Any other ideas?

    A Kart race would be great. Maybe a team principles Kart race as well

  • Paul14/07/2009 at 00:25

    Any other ideas?

    Might be a good use for those A1GP cars I guess.

    I like the idea of some drivers who are not in F1 competing - those that could not make it for one reason or other. The problem is you never seem to get the right drivers to these events.

  • Nick14/07/2009 at 00:26

    I love the way they are measuring home runs by the deck of the stands they hit it too... Big Mac Land...4th Deck!

  • Paul14/07/2009 at 00:26

    So they have a steroids and non-steroids comp?

    I like the idea of some drivers who are not in F1 competing - those that could not make it for one reason or other. The problem is you never seem to get the right drivers to these events.

    Id like it to be an official F1 event, televised like a Grand Prix.

    They could do it the week after Abu Dhabi in Dubai or something on the Friday

  • Nick14/07/2009 at 00:28

    So they have a steroids and non-steroids comp?

    It appears to be mixed.I haven't seen Mr Female Hormones yet

  • Paul14/07/2009 at 00:28

    I think the F1 drivers are mostly too afraid of being beaten in an event like that.

  • Nick14/07/2009 at 00:30

    I think the F1 drivers are mostly too afraid of being beaten in an event like that.

    But if it was only F1 teams and drivers and they were required to go...

    I am sure the sponsors would love it

  • Steven Roy14/07/2009 at 00:34

    I think Horner would stroll that.

    It's just another example of how Bernie is holding the sport back and his business acumen is massively over-rated

  • Paul14/07/2009 at 00:37

    It's just another example of how Bernie is holding the sport back and his business acumen is massively over-rated

    Although he is going to sort out all F1 problems in the next 48 hours. I like that.

  • Nick14/07/2009 at 00:37

    It's just another example of how Bernie is holding the sport back and his business acumen is massively over-rated

    Yeah id like to see him push for more races first i cant see why we cant have 20-25 a year.

  • Nick14/07/2009 at 00:37

    Although he is going to sort out all F1 problems in the next 48 hours. I like that.

    How long has he got left?

  • Paul14/07/2009 at 00:38

    How long has he got left?

    23?

  • Nick14/07/2009 at 00:38

    They do have a very cool effec on the baseball. Flourescent trails on the ball as it is hit live.

    Might be interesting to see if they could use that for live line comparison in the f1

  • Nick14/07/2009 at 00:39

    23?

    What happens if he doesn't make it?

  • Paul14/07/2009 at 00:40

    What happens if he doesn't make it?

    He makes up some excuse. Presumably in ron-speak so nobody understands

  • Steven Roy14/07/2009 at 00:40

    Although he is going to sort out all F1 problems in the next 48 hours. I like that.

    I just saw that on Autosport. We'll see.

  • Steven Roy14/07/2009 at 00:41

    What happens if he doesn't make it?

    He will make the same statement again in another few weeks like he has done before.

  • Journeyer14/07/2009 at 00:55

    What happens if he doesn't make it?

    The reason he said 48 hours is because he will meet with the FIA and FOTA just before the end of that 48 hours. Either they sign the Concorde Agreement, or CVC-FOTA split.

  • Nick14/07/2009 at 00:56

    The reason he said 48 hours is because he will meet with the FIA and FOTA just before the end of that 48 hours. Either they sign the Concorde Agreement, or CVC-FOTA split.

    Dont CVC-Fota have a separate deal.. Wont the split be with the FIA?

  • Journeyer14/07/2009 at 00:58

    Dont CVC-Fota have a separate deal.. Wont the split be with the FIA?

    I said CVC-FOTA because they've more or less made an alliance already. They will indeed split from the FIA.

  • Journeyer14/07/2009 at 00:59

    I said CVC-FOTA because they've more or less made an alliance already. They will indeed split from the FIA.

    And even then, a split would be temporary. If Ari is voted in, I'm pretty certain CVC-FOTA will manage to agree terms with Ari.

  • Nick14/07/2009 at 01:00

    And even then, a split would be temporary. If Ari is voted in, I'm pretty certain CVC-FOTA will manage to agree terms with Ari.

    You think the split with the FIA is inevitable?

    That could be interesting...

  • Journeyer14/07/2009 at 01:01

    You think the split with the FIA is inevitable?

    Nope, I actually think it's unlikely. But in case FOTA does split, CVC will at least have them covered. CVC can either have a hand in both championships, or leave F1 for GP1 altogether.

  • Nick14/07/2009 at 01:06

    Nope, I actually think it's unlikely. But in case FOTA does split, CVC will at least have them covered. CVC can either have a hand in both championships, or leave F1 for GP1 altogether.

    At least F1/GP1 has stability now. We know there will be a championship next year, and most of the circuits it will go to.

    The FIA isnt really an issiue anymore as if they are obstructive everyone can leave.

    I still wonder if Manor will become an issue though, the teams seem to be quite unhappy about that.

    Also interesting that Force India and Williams still dont have a full seat at the FOTA table.

  • Journeyer14/07/2009 at 01:09

    Also interesting that Force India and Williams still dont have a full seat at the FOTA table.

    If GP1 happens, I'm pretty certain FI and Williams will go with them. Their money didn't come from Max; it came from Bernie.

    I still wonder if Manor will become an issue though, the teams seem to be quite unhappy about that.

    Good point on Manor. I think they'd stay with F1 if a split happens.

  • Nick14/07/2009 at 01:11

    Good point on Manor. I think they'd stay with F1 if a split happens.

    Im still not sure FOTA will let them be there next year with or without a split.

    Will be interesting to see how they react to the N.Tech lawsuit

  • Journeyer14/07/2009 at 01:16

    Will be interesting to see how they react to the N.Tech lawsuit

    FOTA are saying nothing at the moment. As Martin Whitmarsh said, why should they say anything? They don't have a vote. ;) Pretty convenient excuse, actually. :D

    That said, I think they'll let the courts decide that matter. Would be interesting to find out if they're doing anything about it privately, though (which, even then, I doubt).

    But hey, swapping Manor out for N-Tech is unbelievably convenient, no?

  • Nick14/07/2009 at 01:18

    But hey, swapping Manor out for N-Tech is unbelievably convenient, no?

    I dont think they nececarily even want n.tech in (outside of ferrari maybe)

    But its more a case of manor being so tied up with Donnely and the FIA, and Max-simtek that the teams will want to out them on principle and give max a black eye as a parting shot.

  • Journeyer14/07/2009 at 01:29

    I dont think they nececarily even want n.tech in (outside of ferrari maybe)

    true, but FOTA would want a full grid.

  • Nick14/07/2009 at 01:31

    true, but FOTA would want a full grid.

    Maybe, I am not convinced.

    But i don't think they would be too worried about 2 new teams next year and another the year after?

  • Journeyer14/07/2009 at 01:35

    But i don't think they would be too worried about 2 new teams next year and another the year after?

    I guess so - but it's easier for 3 new teams to enter altogether, rather than leave 1 to join later - the latecomer will lag behind everyone else, even behind the 2 earlier comers.

  • Nick14/07/2009 at 01:49

    I guess so - but it's easier for 3 new teams to enter altogether, rather than leave 1 to join later - the latecomer will lag behind everyone else, even behind the 2 earlier comers.

    That might bother Bernie, but i cant see why the teams should be too worried.

    It might add a new bolt of excitement in 2011

  • Amy14/07/2009 at 04:50

    You cant leave me with that!

    I'm totally out. No ideas and the manual was no help.

  • Alex Andronov14/07/2009 at 04:50

    Well there aren't that many people up at this time but I am litterally going to phone a friend in a moment and sing the tune down the phone to him. He'll know it's name.

  • Nick14/07/2009 at 04:55

  • Paul14/07/2009 at 04:58

    But... there aren't words!

  • Nick14/07/2009 at 05:03

    Nick, you might need some sidepodsleep

    This is the origin of the problem!

  • Paul14/07/2009 at 05:04

    If you had an iphone, you could try singing to shazam.

  • Alex Andronov14/07/2009 at 05:10

    I'm on my way to the office. I have to wait for fourstar to leave his house. You don't want me to wake his children for this.

    or rather he won't want that!

    Hope he's ready soon otherwise you're going to force

    me to sing on the train!

  • Nick14/07/2009 at 05:11

    If you had an iphone, you could try singing to shazam.

    unfortunately i dont!

  • Nick14/07/2009 at 05:11

    Hope he's ready soon otherwise you're going to force

    me to sing on the train!

    Hehe... if only you could video and call at the same time!

    Does Alex have an iphone? It could test his singing prowess :-)

  • Nick14/07/2009 at 05:13

    the things I do for sidepodcast

    This is awesome... I will call into the the parade lap!

  • Alex Andronov14/07/2009 at 05:13

    I do but it doesn't really work that way sadly :(

  • Alex Andronov14/07/2009 at 05:13

    yes!

  • Paul14/07/2009 at 05:14

    I do but it doesn't really work that way sadly :(

    I was thinking you could try Shazam, if you have it. It never worked for me with singing though.

  • Nick14/07/2009 at 05:31

    I was thinking you could try Shazam, if you have it. It never worked for me with singing though.

    If you like you could try singing whats been written here in a variety of different ways!

    I wonder what you could come up with!

  • Alex Andronov14/07/2009 at 05:31

    Right I have spoken to him. Like me he has recognised it and like me he can't remember the name. However his encylopedoc brain is now working on it. We shall have the answer shortly :)

  • Amy14/07/2009 at 05:31

    Right I have spoken to him. Like me he has recognised it and like me he can't remember the name. However his encylopedoc brain is now working on it. We shall have the answer shortly :)

    I vote record and drop.io the bit you know because someone is bound to know the name :D

  • Nick14/07/2009 at 05:33

    I vote record and drop.io the bit you know because someone is bound to know the name :D

    Oh god no... I cant subject everyone to my singing!

    My goodwood narration is cringeworthy enough!

  • Amy14/07/2009 at 05:35

    Oh god no... I cant subject everyone to my singing!

    I'm sure Alex is more than willing ;)

  • Alex Andronov14/07/2009 at 05:36

    hehe... Thanks again, Did you have to sing on the train?

    just before I had to get on. Now though recording the video is going to be trouble because you can't do that on hands free. So I would have to sing loud on the train and that's not fair on anyone!

  • Paul14/07/2009 at 05:37

    Nick, I think you have a lot to answer for.

    I am now listening to "one hit wonders". I fear I will now have some stupid song in my head for the rest of the afternoon.

  • Nick14/07/2009 at 05:37

    If you do at least you will know what it is!

  • Alex Andronov14/07/2009 at 05:46

    Right no need for video thankfully. But I am in the process of dropping the audio while I change trains!

  • Nick14/07/2009 at 05:47

    Perhaps we should start a game of what time will nick go to sleep? :D

    Thanks for all the help though, Amy & Paul read this and i am sure it will come to you!

    Music: Chunk

    Vocals: ooo ahhhh

    Music: Chunk

    Vocals: ahhh ooo

    I belive the song also includes the word 'enemy' ;)

  • Paul14/07/2009 at 05:57

    It was a lot more rock based!

    I presume you have tried the googles? If you can get enough lyrics together, you should get close.

  • Nick14/07/2009 at 05:58

    Morning all,

    Has anyone linked to Bruno's Cartoon yet?

  • Gavin Brown (RubberGoat)14/07/2009 at 06:11

    On this day, six years ago, the US governement confirmed the existence of Area 51. I know this isn't even remotely F1 related, but I do find the relation between potential extraterrestrial life and certain paddock regulars an interesting concept.

    You mean like Peter Windsor and USF1?

  • Nick14/07/2009 at 06:11

    I have a plan!

  • Nick14/07/2009 at 06:12

    I have a plan!

    Ok this is the worst quality ever heard by man... but it is the song!

    http://drop.io/sidepodcast/asset/really-really-bad-wav

    :D

  • Nick14/07/2009 at 06:14

    and the lyrics are a bit like this...

    Music: Chunk

    Vocals: ooo ahhhh

    Music: Chunk

    Vocals: ahhh ooo

    But a bit more rocky...

    and long aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahssssss

    If you could help it would be most appreciated!

  • Amy14/07/2009 at 06:21

  • Nick14/07/2009 at 06:26

    I think that was Gwen steffani?

    But thanks for your help... the audio clip was amazing... and verry funny! :D

  • Nick14/07/2009 at 06:27

    An a capella version would be fantastic, because I've realised everytime I hear the proper version when I hear the guitary bit in my mind I picture Heikki crashing into a wall. I blame Singapore and the fact while I was there I saw that video approximately 487 times.

    to take a different meaning of pound, points per pound gained for the 2009 season? didn't everyone else lose weight?

    That should keep you busy for a while, I guess. Mr C is busy planning a trip to Oviedo in Spain so he can see Mr Alonso in action. I am not so keen. Anyway, I will see you in the comments.

    I have a colleague who comes from Oviedo - naturally he's a big fan of Alonso!

  • Gavin Brown (RubberGoat)14/07/2009 at 08:17

    to take a different meaning of pound, points per pound gained for the 2009 season? didn't everyone else lose weight?

    KERS-wise, that's a good stat to look at. :)

    Yes it is. Heikki embraced the beef over the off season - because he said it gave him better fitness and endurance right?

  • Christine14/07/2009 at 08:24

    Good day to one and all.

    Yup. While other drivers dropped the pounds.

    Ah, I would not be good at it.

    I had to sing in the middle of a street! (On Drop.io) But at least I got another person to promise to come on the Parade Lap! :)

  • me14/07/2009 at 08:30

    Ah, I would not be good at it.

  • Alex Andronov14/07/2009 at 08:35

    I sent him a message asking him to give me a call when he was out of the house and he did :)

    I would not have been popular with Solveig. But because Adrian and I start so early, and the busiest time of our day is when we first walk in the office at 7 it we are usually at full steam around six thirty.

    We are not like "normal" people :)

  • me14/07/2009 at 08:39

    if you find any inconsistencies. things like me saying kers is going to be a fantastic addition to the season, and just you watch out for those mclaren's because they've been doing a lot of pre-season testing... keep 'em under your hat m'kay?

    Midseason shuffle?

    Nelsinho? Nope. In fact, he hasn't tweeted since Sunday night. Fishy, fishy...

  • Journeyer14/07/2009 at 09:02

    There's also a Swedish article that came out saying Kimi is moving to rallying with Alonso taking the F1 seat. I'm waiting for the page to load, but am guessing that's pure speculation at this point.

  • Amy14/07/2009 at 09:03

    I hate silly season. I like that there wasn't much of one last year that I remember. Maybe I stopped listening after Heikki got confirmed.

  • Amy14/07/2009 at 09:07

    Isn't Alonso's this year just as obvious?

    this isn't the first year that the Alonso one has been around, and thats what bothers me so much. Plus the fact that both Ferrari drivers are still contracted and it'd be super expensive to get rid of them. I just don't see it happening in 2010.

  • Alex Andronov14/07/2009 at 09:09

    Yes! The point was that we are much more mates than anything else. So he didn't mind.

    But Kimi's Ferrari rumors also came out in 01. I still suspect that either Kimi and FIAT will mutually agree to tear up the contract, or Kimi will get paid the same money to go rallying. Probably the former rather than the latter.

    I feel people have had the 'Alonso is going to Ferrari/no he isn't debate in these comments at least 10 times in the last few weeks. This is why I hate silly season. Same thing over and over and over again.

    It's very difficult as it's different to Danish and there's no Swedes in the Office today, but it basically says that Kimi Raikkonen will stop F1 after the last race and start a rally career. His replacement will be Alonso.

    Kimi's friends say that he has no desire for F1 anymore - he wants to rally. There's some stats and then it says that Gazzetto wrote a story that Alonso has signed a 5 yeat contract with Ferrari and it will be announced at Monza.

  • Journeyer14/07/2009 at 09:12

    I don't think Ferrari could afford the latter.

    If Ferrari could afford Schumacher when FIAT was struggling, the latter shouldn't be too difficult (albeit unlikely, indeed).

    We are a strange group of people. A while ago, very groups have led (small) campaigns to get the word "girt" back into modern use. They fail every time. We could rebrand it as the Webber campaign and maybe it will work.

    Understood. But no harm in asking I suppose.

  • Christine14/07/2009 at 09:48

    I'm guessing the three words he knows aren't "you like him" then you could just saying "kubica?? you like him?"

    As far as I know, it is "clean desk, ok?"

  • Christine14/07/2009 at 09:48
  • Jon Waldock14/07/2009 at 09:48

    hmmmm, not so good

  • Christine14/07/2009 at 09:50

    hmmmm, not so good

    That's all he's ever said.

    Someone tried to ask him about Speedway this morning (did Poland do well or something?) and he just shook his head.

    I guess I could break the ice by saying "Kubica clean desk ok?" but where do you go from there?

  • me14/07/2009 at 09:51

    the video makes up for it. watching now.

    loving this talkback. they're cuing up the 3d graphics (cars on the grid) as fast as possible, to get to the rubens interview quicker.

    sorry, but i'm really interested in this stuff. maybe someone can rip it for you. it doesn't make sense without the f1 pics, so the bbc have no choice.

    cleaners across the world love me. probably because i'm the only person who stays late or comes in early to get things done. the fact that i speak so little of the local languages has never stopped 10 minute conversations and you can get there. so it's all in the trying :) and gestures.

  • Christine14/07/2009 at 09:54

    Ah-ha! He says "rubbish" and "thank you" as well.

    So, I can say "Kubica is rubbish, thank you" :)

  • me14/07/2009 at 09:55

    what's amazing, is katherine doing the timings, had cued up the press conference, told jake massa's 'out' line and the second he hears "cue jake" he just goes for it.

    he can walk and talk and listen to three other conversations at once!!

  • F1Wolf14/07/2009 at 09:56

    I just re-read the review of 2008 Australian GP on grandprix.com where Le Seb on his debut found himself in 4th place with 3 laps to go before his car broke down. this is what (probably) Joe Saward said in his review:

    "In the end, he was classified seventh and took two points, which makes it an impressive F1 debut - at least on paper. The Frenchman will need to do more in the future to convince the cynical F1 crowd that he is a star in the making."

  • Christine14/07/2009 at 09:58

    he can walk and talk and listen to three other conversations at once!!

    Unbelievable. I can't even ramp up to music when I'm sat there staring at the times!

  • Scott in Italy14/07/2009 at 09:58

    did that at school. nothing funnier than the teacher asking me "Scott - what was I saying?" knowing full well I was in the middle of a conversation about a weekend, and from deep inside my brain I recited the last 15 seconds of what she said word for word. I still got sent out.

  • me14/07/2009 at 09:59

    he doesn't see the timings. he has katherine reading out 5... 4... 3... 2... 1... in his ears between each segment, and you can hear him slowing down to make the out. which he does to perfection.

    Yup, transcribe it however best it makes sense. The idea is to be able to search inside a show, so it's key words and thoughts that are important, rather than down to the very finest hum's and ha's.

    We are a strange group of people. A while ago, very groups have led (small) campaigns to get the word “girt” back into modern use. They fail every time. We could rebrand it as the Webber campaign and maybe it will work. {Comment #290}

    I used "gird" properly about two years ago. Somebody was silly enough to try posting a seriously anti-Spyker comment on a Spyker forum. They were even sillier to not spell-check their post before hitting the "Submit" button.

    My response was to point out to said individual that they'd just called Spyker a "gird filler" and this meant they'd come up with a witty way of saying "knight"...

    For some reason, I haven't seen the spammer in question since!

    If you've made a boat that can't get wet, you may end up in trouble at some point...

  • Lukeh14/07/2009 at 12:07

    Wow! I've just seen/listened to Jakey's blog too. Major respect for the amount of stuff he has to take into consideration.

    If you’ve made a boat that can’t get wet, you may end up in trouble at some point… {Comment #427}

    The dryer a boat is when it enters the water, the faster it travels. If the water stays in the boat too long, it can also warp the materials - or so Dad tells me.

    It's a bit like F1 cars need to be polished every time they come back to the pits to maximise the aero. In extreme cases dirt has been known to cause retirements - for example when Maurice Trignitant's car stopped in Monaco in a race soon after the Second World War due to rat droppings in the wrong part of the car...

    Since a lot of Vettels reputation was based on him being quicker than Bourdais, and now Le Seb has been sacked. Does this mean he is now just a normal driver, or is he still 'the chosen one'?

    All done for the summer. I'm not getting ahead of myself with that resit as I'm really not arrogant enough to fgo saying it's done and dusted but I had everything it asked for, it all worked, and there's no problems plus our tutor seemed 100% happy with it so I should be able to relax and begin concentrating on my dissertation plans soon, and a subject I'm quite looking forward to in september actually :)

    And then he can take some overtaking lessons and all will be right in the world ;)

  • Steven Roy14/07/2009 at 13:26

    Why not leave Bourdais in the car until then?

    They know that he is not as good as Buemi so they may as well give Jimmy a go. He will be the youngest GP driver ever so they will get some publicity from that. If he kicks Buemi's butt then I guess he is Loeb's team mate next year.

  • Nick14/07/2009 at 13:26

    Webber admitted he is expecting the fight between himself and team-mate Sebastian Vettel to reflect in the championship situation, but he reckons one of them will eventually have to play a supporting role if the title is at stake.

    cleaning and tidying is different to ringing in and being on a podcast. one is easy and reasonably alright to do, and the other is amazing to listen to (when you're not in them) and scary to take part in ;)

    surely "testing" implies that some kind of mechanical evaluation is occurring? when piquet is in the car, isn't that called learning?

  • me14/07/2009 at 17:14

    well at least muse have been using macs whilst making their new album! ;)

    the reason i own a mac is because i was laughed out of a studio for owning a pc many years ago.

    the professional music industry as a whole shuns the very idea of windows, partly because microsoft have always supplied awful audio drivers and partly because it's an industry full of snobs.

    before macs they all used atari's, never windows. even when apple was a dying company and nobody used macs, the professional print and music industries stuck by them.

    muse absolutely use macs. even if they didn't they'd have to lie about it anyhow.

    wow. didn't know it was so often used in music to be honest... although im not really surprised. Kinda cool actually :)

    even music industry accountants used to have to use macs, and for a long time there was no excel and no accounts packages. madness yes, but also true.

    Piquet was driving at Kemble wasn't he? How many runs did he do?

  • Steven Roy14/07/2009 at 17:20

    :) longer than "NZ people in F1"

    seriously it was a short piece. my use of the word "feature" was exaggerating perhaps. Yeah it was Sir Jack and AJ. And now webber.

    Amon, Mclaren, Hulme - see, we had three as well! Just none since 1970 :(

    there was a time when christine used to throw half a podcast away, because of audio glitches created solely within the mind of vista. sometimes when recording and then again on playback.

  • Nick14/07/2009 at 17:22

    before macs they all used atari's, never windows. even when apple was a dying company and nobody used macs, the professional print and music industries stuck by them.

    When i was working as a journalist we used macs but it was completely absurd, the only browser on them was IE and outside of the page making software all the work was done in MS office.

    Everyone seemed to have windows laptops and tablets though

  • Jon Waldock14/07/2009 at 17:23

    I've found the amount of testing Piquets done, lets just say, no wonder he's not doing well. Alonso got so much more track time than him, like over double

    the first mac i used was os 7, and the screen was black and white. at the time i had a million and whatever colour windows 95(?) machine, and couldn't for the life of me figure why they wouldn't want to use what i had.

    turned out they were right though.

    That does sound rubbish. It's annoying enough organising items (seriously, why take out the file type or date modified option when right clicking to sort? grr!!). Least you reached the promised land with macs for sidepodcast!

    Alonso has more experience. Its a shame he wasn't able to make the car 5/10ths quicker like he normally does.

    He must be absolutly amazed at how mclaren made the jump they did without him :P

  • Jon Waldock14/07/2009 at 17:28

    But when you think about it who will the team get better feedback from Alonso or Piquet on a brand new car?

    Yeah and look at the amazing work Alonsos done to make this car good? Not!

    They don't give him a chance, he's a decent driver, Saturday showed that, he just plays second fiddle to Nando

  • me14/07/2009 at 17:28

    I say decent in a better than he's made out to be. Rather than 'good good'

  • James14/07/2009 at 17:30

    Alonso has more experience. Its a shame he wasn't able to make the car 5/10ths quicker like he normally does.

    Hehe I get the impression from your comments on Alonso that your not a fan :P He did well at Germany though set the fastest lap which was 6 tenths faster than Mark Webber's fastest lap.

    But when you think about it who will the team get better feedback from Alonso or Piquet on a brand new car?

    You have to remember the other teams are developing at the same time as Renault so the upgrades have to be like Ferrari's at Spain or McLaren's in Germany to make a real impact.

  • Nick14/07/2009 at 17:30

    ?? piquet ??

    I think he is a far better driver than people give him credit for. Without flav it wouldn't surprise me if he wins races.

  • James14/07/2009 at 17:31

    But when he went to mclaren he claimed he could deliver 7 tenths (not 5) to any car.

    Either his ego has a puncture or he just isnt trying.

  • Jon Waldock14/07/2009 at 17:33

    Was it not 6 tenths? I don't remember but McLaren's form improved in 2007 compared to 2006 and I know that wasn't all Alonso but he would have helped.

  • Christine14/07/2009 at 17:34

    Do we know that Alonso hasn't brought six tenths to the car? Perhaps it's really, really bad, and he's just made it less bad? Just a thought.

  • Nick14/07/2009 at 17:35

    Right I am off to buy myself a dinner, see you later!

    Still need to have that conversation with mr c about alonso's pit stop :P

  • James14/07/2009 at 17:35

    Do we know that Alonso hasn't brought six tenths to the car? Perhaps it's really, really bad, and he's just made it less bad? Just a thought.

    Well he has scored points in that car unlike Piquet.

  • lou14/07/2009 at 17:37

    They don't give him a chance, he's a decent driver, Saturday showed that, he just plays second fiddle to Nando

    didn't Alonso spin on his last lap in Q2 or something, meaning he didn't get the chance to put in his fastest lap? surely that it doesn't mean Piquet was any better for outqualifying him?

  • Jon Waldock14/07/2009 at 17:37

    Well he has scored points in that car unlike Piquet.

    That dosent mean anything, he's clearly favoured in the team.

    McLaren's improvement in 2007 was predicted before Alonso was announced. McLaren were competitive in 2005 when tyres had to last a whole race and the 2007 tyres were similar to the 2005 tyres although pit stops were allowed. McLaren knew how to design a car to heat up hard tyres.

  • Pat W14/07/2009 at 17:40

    Hellooo. I'm reading the comments from this morning, sounds like Nick had fun.

  • James14/07/2009 at 17:40

    That dosent mean anything, he's clearly favoured in the team.

    Piquet knows that, he's said so himself several times it motivates him but whilst Fernando gets the new parts and makes them work Piquet's performances don't seem to improve.

  • James14/07/2009 at 17:42

    I didn't know that, thanks :) I do remember though that Alonso urged McLaren to build a car that was reliable and quick rather than mega fast and fragile.

  • James14/07/2009 at 17:43

    but he span? he got the opportunity and made the most of it

    The conditions weren't great though, and its one slip considering some of Piquet's performances in the rain.

  • me14/07/2009 at 17:43

    Well he has scored points in that car unlike Piquet.

    That dosent mean anything, he's clearly favoured in the team.

    did you hear what ted had to say about piquet and kazuki last friday? he said every team try to rate the drivers in the field, and as far as her could tell, nobody rated either of those two.

    he didn't specifically say it, but the inference appeared to be... including they're own teams.

    bourdais was rated above both and now appears out of a drive. piquet is nothing but a waste of space, and there is no evidence to suggest otherwise to anyone.

  • lou14/07/2009 at 17:44

    That dosent mean anything, he's clearly favoured in the team.

    Alonso would be favoured in any team over Piquet i think, even if it's just because Alonso doesn't go about crashing and spinning as often as Piquet does...

  • Jon Waldock14/07/2009 at 17:44

    The conditions weren't great though, and its one slip considering some of Piquet's performances in the rain.

    i know i know, my point is just that he isnt as bad as he's made out to be. if he were given a good car, engineer, a chance....he'd do better

  • Lukeh14/07/2009 at 17:45

    bourdais was rated above both and now appears out of a drive. piquet is nothing but a waste of space, and there is no evidence to suggest otherwise to anyone.

    I feel bad for bourdais, think he had a lot more potential in f1 that went untapped in a toro rosso.

  • Jon Waldock14/07/2009 at 17:45

    I feel bad for bourdais, think he had a lot more potential in f1 that went untapped in a toro rosso.

    agreed, he was amazing at Le Mans, he's clearly a great driver. just not given the chance

  • me14/07/2009 at 17:46

    I feel bad for bourdais, think he had a lot more potential in f1 that went untapped in a toro rosso.

    i dunno. he claimed slicks would really suit him, and they didn't. i feel sorry that his car died on the line in italy (something i think the team did deliberately), but in the end he had a fair chance.

  • Pat W14/07/2009 at 17:48

    We are a strange group of people. A while ago, very groups have led (small) campaigns to get the word "girt" back into modern use. They fail every time. We could rebrand it as the Webber campaign and maybe it will work.

    Rown 'yer we use 'girt' ev'ry day.

  • James14/07/2009 at 17:48

    i know i know, my point is just that he isnt as bad as he's made out to be. if he were given a good car, engineer, a chance....he'd do better

    The same can be said of any driver. Last season Alonso won two races and scored 38 points in the last five races of the season. Piquet didn't make the podium at any point other than his podium in Germany and scored 6 points in the last 5 races.

  • Lukeh14/07/2009 at 17:48

    i dunno. he claimed slicks would really suit him, and they didn't. i feel sorry that his car died on the line in italy (something i think the team did deliberately), but in the end he had a fair chance.

    True enough. Maybe if he gets a better car we'll see but thinking back he does sem inconsistent, you think of performances like spa last year where he was absolutrly excellent if it weren't for that rain but then you get a lot of races where he was quite simply invisible. Whether this is a case of him or the car can be discussed but I'd like to see him at renault instead of piquet.

    The same could be said abotu Piquet though I suppose, look at germany last year...

  • me14/07/2009 at 17:49

    but I'd like to see him at renault instead of piquet.

    he'd never bow to flav's demands sadly.

    Seems to be at the moment. She's got the Tamiflu and probably every disinfectant-related product you can think of.

    OK, that's kind of an exaggeration, but she's taken all the necessary steps including wearing disposable hygiene gloves. I am also keeping myself topped up with a lot of fluids to try and help keep myself in good shape. I feel perfectly fine at the moment. Mind you, I drink no end of orange juice so the Vitamin C must be doing something right!

    Thanks for all the support anyways, I hope and am sure everything will be OK. :)

  • Pat W14/07/2009 at 18:01

    very well. Considering i came out of original exam knowing it'd all gone wrong, I come out of this one with everything I had to do working, minus a not found message for when you make the program search for entries with no results. The examiner said that part wouldn't add to the grade (which I find brilliant stupid) so I just left what I had, which all worked as specified, which should be a delightful pass :D

    Congrats! Now you have some free time to write more Goodwood blog stuff!

    I feel bad for bourdais, think he had a lot more potential in f1 that went untapped in a toro rosso.

    Absolutely no question about it in my mind - trouble is, he needs a settled well set-up car and I don't think STR are capable of achieving that, whereas the main Red Bull team are.

    Call me a party pooper if you like RG but I think the motivation for people doing shows every week will go awry. It's different when it's your own website but as a contributer, I think guilt will kick in if for some reason you couldn't manage to do a show and then it becomes a chore and not fun anymore

  • Maverick14/07/2009 at 19:16

    I'd forgotten just how many adverts ITV can squeeze into a program, or rather, how little TV they can squeeze in between the adverts.

  • Pat W14/07/2009 at 19:16

    They were Channel 4 WRC logos, I was confused.

  • Lukeh14/07/2009 at 19:22

    Obviously only a second but i bet if you went back and paused it you'd be able to see clearer as jenson wasn't going super fast

    or maybe some onboard footage...

    I was complaining about serious lack of rookies in F1 and it seems that we'll have 2 already in Hungary. That's what you call slightly unexpected developments at F1 pace.

    So somebody mentioned 'Ari for the FIA president Facebook group', maybe there's a link to it? I'd like to join. Will try to search Facebook but it won't be easy.

    it might say somewhere, I just remember reading that everyone had to wear helmets no matter what class of car...

    I have a copy of a DVD called 'Tales from the Tarmac' which is a roundup of each BTCC season from 91 to 2001... it's very good!

    Charlie Cox narrates too! :D

    Yeah, that's the only bad thing about it really...

  • Scott Woodwiss14/07/2009 at 20:17

    Hey, Cox is awesome. :P

    I liked him on touring cars, to a point. He's annoying on the MotoGP, largely because it's the same schtick he had a decade ago on the touring... needs new material.

  • Gavin Brown (RubberGoat)14/07/2009 at 20:19

    And Mr C: because I've heard you ask this several times now (i've listened to the debrief that much) Kimi was the first of the Ferrari/McLaren guys to get a a podium he did so in Monaco :)

    While she looks nice her presenting and interviewing skills on the ITV GP2 coverage did her no favours at all. Not a fan.

    She's good in the speedway.

    While she looks nice her presenting and interviewing skills on the ITV GP2 coverage did her no favours at all. Not a fan.

    In saying this, she did gradually improve through the year... in the sense that how she ended the season was where she should have been at the beginning of it.

  • me14/07/2009 at 20:26

    laughably awful.

  • RG14/07/2009 at 20:26

    Which, hold my hands up, is the only thing I've seen her in.

    Might have a picture her on the camera.

  • me14/07/2009 at 20:26

    i had given up watching by then. but fair enough.

    She wasn't that bad - at least she got to talk to the drivers because of her, ahem, 'assets'!

    i had given up watching by then. but fair enough.

    I say this in the sense that by Monza (the last GP2 race) she came across as newbie presenter who knew a little bit about GP2. This is the foundation she should have begun the year with, not ended it. I was willing to give her a chance this season and write it off advancing up the ranks too quickly (like drivers, presenters need to start at the bottom..), but then the coverage moved.

  • Pat W14/07/2009 at 20:28

    She wasn't that bad - at least she got to talk to the drivers because of her, ahem, 'assets'!

    I don't think that was the reason.

  • RG14/07/2009 at 20:30

    but then the coverage moved.

    Possibly has learned from GP2 to be fairly decent on the speedway.

    She is, at least, better than the other paddock reporter on Sky Sports.

  • Pat W14/07/2009 at 20:30

    I felt the same about Crofty on that coverage too btw. Early on he was useless. Much better toward the end. Still insisted on referring to each team car as if they'd built the car though.

  • Gavin Brown (RubberGoat)14/07/2009 at 20:30

    She wasn't that bad - at least she got to talk to the drivers because of her, ahem, 'assets'!

    I don't think that was the reason.

    Aw come on, the drivers were lining up to talk to her because of her looks, surely? Those drivers were like excitable dogs around her!

  • me14/07/2009 at 20:31

    I felt the same about Crofty on that coverage too btw. Early on he was useless. Much better toward the end. Still insisted on referring to each team car as if they'd built the car though.

    to me he improved faster than that though. at least he improved before i stopped watching.

    By the end of the season I was convinced Crofty should be the F1 commentator based on his GP2 work.

    I feel left out now cos I'm the only one here who hasn't watched the GP2 last year.

    i don't think you missed much. i gave up halfway through the year and have no intention of watching this year.

    the drivers are rubbish.

  • Nick14/07/2009 at 20:33

    somehow the bbc though legard was better.

    I think the brundle/croft disagreement is more likely.

    Legard had moved on to football and his appointment was a shock

  • Jon Waldock14/07/2009 at 20:34

    the first 2 years were good, the rest seems to have not been anywhere near as good

  • me14/07/2009 at 20:34

    there is one?

    Aw come on, the drivers were lining up to talk to her because of her looks, surely? Those drivers were like excitable dogs around her!

    They were like that, yes, but that's not the reason they were there. She was stood in the pitlane with a live TV camera, not many of the other coverage providers did that - you didn't see a media swarm as you do elsewhere.

  • Pat W14/07/2009 at 20:35

    to me he improved faster than that though. at least he improved before i stopped watching.

    Absolutely

  • Nick14/07/2009 at 20:35

    there is one?

    There was a rumour at the back end of last year that Brundle refuses to work with croft. And part of his bbc deal was that have wouldn't have to.

    I thought last year was good but that was the first I ever saw it...

    What puts me off is that hardly any of those drivers will become F1 stars so what's the point?

  • Pat W14/07/2009 at 20:36

    By the end of the season I was convinced Crofty should be the F1 commentator based on his GP2 work.

    I went as far as thinking he was only doing the GP2 gig as a warm-up for BBC F1 on TV.

    they aren't good enough. the standard is too low or something.

    watched a race. pos1 and pos2 smashed into each other off the line and pos3 tried to kill himself on the armco. that was the head of the field, the farther back it went the worse they got.

    I haven't seen this year yet but I will. The drivers are not of the standard they were in the Rosberg or Hamilton years. They do make silly mistakes for that level and I'm going to enjoy Haven/Rees double-act again, they really do lay into the stupid errors - both from drivers and officials. Did you see 2007?

  • me14/07/2009 at 20:38

    It sounds quite similar!

  • me14/07/2009 at 20:38

    probably. gave up mid-season, so around then.

    Magny-Cours 2007. The man who tried to kill himself is EJ Viso and he's turned out to be a revelation on ovals in IndyCar - his Magny-Cours shunt wasn't his fault, he was unsighted and couldn't see the yellows.

    No you're right it was '08. I thought he went to Champ Car for a year but I was mistaken - I remember putting a blog post up early this year with a YouTube vid of his accident, because my IndyCar followers had never heard of him.

    it is. ted said so.

    It is, there are videos for the other red bull juniors including Hartley. I want them both in F1 now :D

    How about, Red Bull Kidz in da F1?

  • James14/07/2009 at 21:05

    Until I can say his name, I'm going with Christine's idea and calling him not Seb.

  • lou14/07/2009 at 21:06

    I heard Hime, so I'm calling him Lime Guy.

    it's easier and definitely correct if you just call him 'not le seb' ;)

    he is. he calls vettel with a 'v'. just like it should be.

  • lou14/07/2009 at 21:06

    i'm with James and Christine while i wait to see what Croftie and Ant call him.

    I'm making fun of you guys.

    People don't understand humour. :)

  • James14/07/2009 at 21:07

    i'm with James and Christine while i wait to see what Croftie and Ant call him.

    They will probably call him, "the new guy at Toro Rosso"

  • Nick14/07/2009 at 21:08

    he is. he calls vettel with a 'v'. just like it should be.

    Is there an alternate pronconciation?

    K?

  • me14/07/2009 at 21:08

    no, no. ted is correct, der seb is incorrect.

    then i shall call him the same :P

    fettel.

    no, no. ted is correct, der seb is incorrect.

    i see.

  • lou14/07/2009 at 21:09

    fettel.

    which is what Croftie calls him i think?

  • RG14/07/2009 at 21:09

    fettel.

    They sound exactly the same?

  • James14/07/2009 at 21:09

    Brendon Hartley with shorter hair!! :D

    I'm happy I found this site. I want them both to get F1 drives next year.

  • me14/07/2009 at 21:09

    which is what Croftie calls him i think?

    and he is incorrect. ted trumps croftie.

  • Nick14/07/2009 at 21:10

    fettel.

    Where did that come from!?

    How odd

    and he is incorrect. ted trumps croftie.

    :o but it's Croftie!!!

  • Pat W14/07/2009 at 21:10

    fettel.

    Fettle

    not Vett El, as Brundle says.

  • me14/07/2009 at 21:10

    :o but it's Croftie!!!

    hmnm. it'sa tough one ill grant ya.

  • Christine14/07/2009 at 21:11

    No, he's right. I heart Croftie, but Ted does trump him.

  • Pat W14/07/2009 at 21:11

    He's German.

  • me14/07/2009 at 21:11

    not Vett El, as Brundle says.

    v-ettel.

  • lou14/07/2009 at 21:11

    Where did that come from!?

    in German 'V's are pronounced as 'F's or something like that. and Vettel himself pronounces it as 'Fettel'

    yup, hehe. apparently his dad raced in Formula Atlantic....

    this does mean he is wrong

  • James14/07/2009 at 21:14

    In 2009 nine drivers have been signed up to the Red Bull Junior Team.It is the smallest squad since the Junior Team was fouded in 2000, because: quality comes before quantity.

    Red Bull really are planing the future of their F1 team :)

    The problem is money, and the fact they are not from a sexy country so they're not assumed to be any good!

  • Jon Waldock14/07/2009 at 21:18

    Are you saying england is sexy?

    No what I mean is, if you are English, Spanish, Italian, German or Brazilian you are more likely to get a good ride in a feeder series. I can't explain why, it just seems to happen that way,

  • Pat W14/07/2009 at 21:21

    The problem is money, and the fact they are not from a sexy country so they're not assumed to be any good!

    There's a massive number of very good drivers on the Lights/Atlantics periphery who can't find the money. And then there's the ones who actually are driving who should have moved up to IndyCar but for lack of funding.

    Exactly the same as F3/WSR/GP2/F1 I suppose.

  • Gavin Brown (RubberGoat)14/07/2009 at 21:21

    Man, how could I forget van der Drift.

    He's the only one i know

    Reid, Bamber, Halliday and Van Der Drift did/do A1GP

    Cunnigham does Indy lights ... not sure what the others are doing though...

    No what I mean is, if you are English, Spanish, Italian, German or Brazilian you are more likely to get a good ride in a feeder series. I can't explain why, it just seems to happen that way,

    I would say it seems like that because there are more drivers from those countrys.

  • Jon Waldock14/07/2009 at 21:22

    I would say it seems like that because there are more drivers from those countrys.

    That was a stupid point to make, my point is that theres more racing drivers coming from those countrys so theres bound to be more of a good quality

  • RG14/07/2009 at 21:22

    Reid, Bamber, Halliday and Van Der Drift did/do A1GP

    Maybe... but why are there more from these countries?

    Also with NZ drivers it's a bit geographic (farrrrrrrrrrr away).

    Look at NotSeb - why was he picked over anyone else? He's certainly not the best driver not in F1... Could it be because of his nationality?

  • Jon Waldock14/07/2009 at 21:25

    Yes he was supposed to have a seat fitting with Honda and test their F1 car but it never happened... He told me he was really disappointed by that :(

    You misunderstood. Sorry, I meant, the best driver who ISNT in F1 and wants to be.

  • Jon Waldock14/07/2009 at 21:26

    Spanish?

    Oh yeah the repsol thing. He's coming into F1 because he's got backing from Repsol and frankly (according to Red Bull) he's good

  • Nick14/07/2009 at 21:26

    Look at NotSeb - why was he picked over anyone else? He's certainly not the best driver not in F1... Could it be because of his nationality?

    We have 2 spanish Grand Prix... makes sense for Bernie to want 2 spanish drivers...

    I dont know what pressure he puts on the teams but he always seems to have some guiding wind on the direction of the driver market.

    Spanish?

    Oh yeah the repsol thing. He's coming into F1 because he's got backing from Repsol and frankly (according to Red Bull) he's good

    and maybe pdlr.

  • Nick14/07/2009 at 21:28

    I dont think he is quite as box office as "the next alonso"

  • RG14/07/2009 at 21:28

    Yes but is he better than for example, Liuzzi?

    Not in for Red Bull so not really gonna be an option.

    Course Liuzzi is brill, but doubt he'd go back out with Red Bull or her sister Toro Rosso.

  • Jon Waldock14/07/2009 at 21:28

    Yes but is he better than for example, Liuzzi?

    Nobodys knows, but he's younger, and if he gets this seat for hte next few races, they can suss him out, if he's good, keep him, if he's not, get someone else

  • me14/07/2009 at 21:28

    true enough.

  • Jon Waldock14/07/2009 at 21:31

    From an "you could do well in F1" perspective, i believe it is

  • me14/07/2009 at 21:32

    From an "you could do well in F1" perspective, i believe it is

    if f1 survives and he has a drive next year. he's still young enough to outclass sutil.

  • Pat W14/07/2009 at 21:32

    it's not over yet, is it?

    The STR ride was supposed to parachute him in at Red Bull when DC retired. Instead he's stuck as Force India's third driver.

  • Pat W14/07/2009 at 21:33

    as for Klien... Klien could have been the next Heidfeld, unspectacular but a very solid hand with a long career

  • Jon Waldock14/07/2009 at 21:33

    if f1 survives and he has a drive next year. he's still young enough to outclass sutil.

    He is, but if he does get a seat, he has to get in it and drive his feet off.

  • RG14/07/2009 at 21:34

    if f1 survives and he has a drive next year. he's still young enough to outclass sutil.

    He's the best driver in that team I reckon

    Actually I like him so much I'm going to write a blog post about him.

    Sometime.

    Just reading about Piquet on AUTOSPORT and I believe Hungary is his last chance because he will have the same parts on the car as Alonso. Although seeing Flavio in the car might be amusing.

    "My contract is complex, with many points agreed only verbally," he said. "Renault promised me the same conditions as Alonso's, but I've never had them. During the winter I tested for 2,000 kms, while Alonso did 4,000 kms.

    Got cancelled last night after me getting out of my sick bed to see it and they decided on a 48 hour delay because today's weather was not at all promising

    I'm a fickle fan tonight. Earlier I felt bad for Bourdais, then didn't then thought maybe Piquet had a hard time then laughed off such a suggestion within 4 seconds, then liked bruno Senna for 5 minutes until lou reminded me of the great Honda scupple for that seat. Perhaps at some point this evening, I'll have an urge to give legard a chance and wonder if EJ is underrahahahaha. oh I can't finish that sentence.

    just to clarify, it was a large glass of wine and the mac took the brunt of it. i didn't touch the it for at least 20mins because we were live (aside from clearing excess with tissue).

    i figured it was a gonner, and might even melt live on air. but when we ended the show, i just tipped it sideways and poured the wine onto the desk.

    i don't recommend anyone try this, but macs truly rule.

  • Pat W14/07/2009 at 22:28

    3.5 is the current version.

    That's odd, normally FF tells me when there is a new version.

  • Paul14/07/2009 at 22:28

    no. bought 2 months before spc. a very old workhorse.

    Wow! Lucky.

  • Lukeh14/07/2009 at 22:28

    firefox 3.5 is awesome. It has an awesome bar, which is the official technical term.

    Not that old compared to some, I've seen quite a few Titanium Powerbooks still working fine after 7 years.

  • Nick14/07/2009 at 22:32

    Hello. Just back from the beach

    Hehe, alright for some!

  • me14/07/2009 at 22:33

    not worked as hard as this one, surely? we make HDTV with it.

  • Jon Waldock14/07/2009 at 22:33

    *Drum roll please*

    It works!

    Cool

  • Paul14/07/2009 at 22:34

    not worked as hard as this one, surely? we make HDTV with it.

    It's time you got a new one.

    Can I have the old one? :D

  • me14/07/2009 at 22:35

    It works!

    ace.

  • Nick14/07/2009 at 22:35

    The Live shows are HD?

  • me14/07/2009 at 22:35

    Can I have the old one? :D

    it should be put in a museum.

  • Jon Waldock14/07/2009 at 22:35

    ace.

    however, i've already turned it off

  • me14/07/2009 at 22:36

    The Live shows are HD?

    inside track is filmed and edited in HD. we put one video out as 720p, but it didn't have much takeup.

  • me14/07/2009 at 22:36

    haha!

    I hear it's healthier. poppycock and balderdash, I say.

    ooh. you gotta have a sailing show...

  • Andy Taylor14/07/2009 at 22:41

    you want me to walk?

    Shouldn't that be:

    Mr C: Do you expect me to walk?

    The rest of us: No Mr C, we expect you to stay at home where it's safe.

  • Steven Roy14/07/2009 at 22:42

    umm....i've built a boat out of bottles, and had to jump in when my 90cm boat sank (im screwed for the bigger one), do you really think im the best person to do that?

  • Lukeh14/07/2009 at 22:42

    The Jon and Jackie Show.

    Standard seems to be an hour but you can do more

  • Pat W14/07/2009 at 22:44

    FF had a bit of a funny while it updated but I'm here again now.

  • Andy Taylor14/07/2009 at 22:45

    If there was a snooker show would it be called sidepotcast?

    It could also be the name for a podcast about Cannabis. That could be called "Top Gear" too. (Sorry)

  • Jon Waldock14/07/2009 at 22:45

    hmmm, can i be the opposite of Moyles and play looooooooooads of music with very little talking?

  • Pat W14/07/2009 at 22:45

    FF had a bit of a funny while it updated but I'm here again now.

    and the noise does work :-)

    what's so good about this bar? it looks the same as v3

  • Andy Taylor14/07/2009 at 22:45

    I think it'll work better if you leave the bottles empty.

  • me14/07/2009 at 22:46

    I think it'll work better if you leave the bottles empty.

    :P :D ;)

  • Jon Waldock14/07/2009 at 22:46

  • Pat W14/07/2009 at 22:50

    I've turned the noise off too but it is nice to know it is there if I need it. :-)

    Same reason I turned off Tweetdeck when I used that - but I like Seesmic Desktop's solution. Tweets are silent but replies and DMs make a quick noise.

  • lou14/07/2009 at 22:50

    For anyone who is looking for some unusual podcasts Robert Llewelyn was on TWit and mentioned his website. He does a series of podcasts where he drives people somewhere they have to go like their daily commute and has a conversation on the way.

    i love old fashioned polaroid cameras. we have one somewhere but it doesn't work anymore :( to be fair i'm not sure i could fit another camera in my camera cupboard, i've made sure i have a fish eye lens shaped hole though for next time i go on a camera accessory spending spree, i may need to save up for a nice polaroid camera at one point.

  • Andy Taylor14/07/2009 at 23:03

    It's not about the quality but the unique characteristics of the medium. Check out the Holga camera - it's made of plastic, including the lens, it leaks light, costs about £60. It has quite a large enthusiast following.

    Absolute perfection!

    Can't actually tell you what a lot of it was, as the menu was all in French, everyone was talking in French, and my French is only slightly better than my Spanish and German.

    Luckilly the chef in charge was an old schoolmate so I got the nod on what was good and what wasn't. ;)
