It had been an exciting weekend of racing, so now perhaps we can finally catch our breath and discuss the aftermath. Plenty of opinions have been flying around the paddock, as well as here on Sidepodcast, so let us get to it:

  • First of all, jump right into the Vettel-Webber debate. Mark is winning the votes here, though the result on formula1.com offers a more balanced view. I still maintain that neither were at fault since the Red Bull team was the one that truly screwed up.
  • All of us have our own opinions so just go down the list: Leigh, Australian media, Adam Cooper, Joe Saward, Autosport and me. Alianora also has updated on engine usage this season.
  • F1 wasn't the only racing around as there was also Rally Portugal and Indianapolis 500. Both Sebastiens had a better time in rallying than poor Vettel did in F1, but I'll let Lady Snowcat tell you more about that. #waitspatiently
  • In the meantime, you can always reread Leigh's guest post or Sports Illustrated on the American race. Pressdog also offers injury updates.
  • Christine is hard at work on her film post and rankings Karun loses a point!
  • Jake does a video blog that is quite entertaining, if a little biased. ;)
  • I update on my trip round the Marina Bay circuit. Plenty of pictures ahead.
  • A very happy birthday to Alison! (wow 2 birthdays in a row on my post). She wants a cake like this, but I imagine this or this would be much cuter.

It is going to be a quiet week since there is no F1 (and rallying takes a 5 week break o.O). But thankfully I have tennis and the upcoming World Cup to keep me occupied. For the rest of you who solely like motorsports, I hope the raging Red Bull debate will do. See you in the debates here.

    Force India's wind tunnel is in Brackley.

    In non-F1 stuff, Brackley also has the oldest building in continuous use by a school (the chapel at Magdalen College School has been used for that purpose since 1548). Maybe you could see if you could photograph it?

    There's also a town hall, park and leisure centre.

  • Alison31/05/2010 at 23:21

    It's more of a ruin than anything else - but if you like history, then definitely give it a visit.

    Also look for the old railway station. There's talk there might be a new line going through Brackley and re-opening its station to serve the route.

  • lou31/05/2010 at 23:24

    yeah i saw the leisure centre, might go for a swim

    brackley f1 have a huuuuggeee Gym.. it was new in 2008 so i'm sure they'd let you use that instead of paying the local leisure centre.. then again i doubt they have a pool...

    TRUE! now I remember. So, it wasn't a problem of not paying attention, it was my usual bad memory :P

    Bah, the one day I leave Alistair at home there is no one in the comments to entertain me. Boo.

    soz, have been trying to sort a shortcut key for alex to post comments on his ipad. sadly apple have thwarted me, it can't be done in any sensible way. blast.

  • me01/06/2010 at 02:01

    fyi alex (when you wake), the best ipad solution i can figure:

    1) in "ye olde comments"

    2) type a comment

    3) hit "previous" button

    4) this jumps you back to the "website" input box

    5) you can now hit "go", which will post the comment

    if you're using the bluetooth keyboard you can substitute step 3 for shift + tab. this jumps you back like the "previous" button does, but is quicker (at least it does when using the simulator, i don't have a bluetooth keyboard to do this properly).

    in theory, that's the same as normal commenting but instead of tab+return it's shift+tab+return.

    hope that makes sense, that's all i got.

    I have discovered another two victims of the Great Under The Stairs Cull 2010. Number one is the bag we put all the little plastic bags into, this is quite useful, now where will I find bags to put in my rubbish bin?

    Number two is my favourite purple apron that I like to wear when I bake muffins that my nana made for me. And she can't make me another one because she ain't alive no more :( :(

    Flatmates suuuuuuuuck. I'm all for throwing out rubbish but why throw out stuff that isn't cluttering up the place, they were hanging on a hook on the back of the door!

  • F1Wolf01/06/2010 at 07:21

    How is it that you haven't watched already?

  • Lukeh01/06/2010 at 11:50

    I dunno, just never been interested in it but I've been bugged so much to watch it I have given in. Plus, james corden.

    Plus, james corden.

    Oh yes, well, there is that.

    Sauber released their merchandise*

    I wouldn't mind a Pedro cap, but will he still be there by the time I get it

    *Okay, its a range of 3 caps.

    I'd probably buy something from Hispania Racing... if their colours weren't brown

    Federer just started. You could sleep through the first two sets at least.

    OK, elephant in the room time. Soderling has lost all 12 of his previous matches against Federer. No active player has such a poor record against the world number one.

    Sounds like a great time to have a nap :)

  • Amy01/06/2010 at 13:53

    but he took Rafa out at this exact round last year. Dark horse, that Soderling ;)

    Paris has sooo many empty seats considering its a QF. You'd never ever see empty seats in Melbourne when Roger is on court and considering you crazy Brits camp out overnight to get into Wimbledon I'd imagine it's much the same there.

    i decided to look into how you can get wimbeldon tickets... and i got very confused.. from what i see you have to apply really early to stand a chance, otherwise you can chance turning up in the day, but due to the crazy people that camp it's unlikely you'll be able to see any tennis. am going to hang my hopes on going to the WTFs at the O2 i think..

    yeah I'd say it's your only chance, my friend who has Wimbledon tickets got them in a ballot months ago and they're still pretty rubbish, she is going down to camp to try and get better ones. She got her tickets for Queens months and months ago too.

  • Amy01/06/2010 at 14:06

    its silly, they keep saying they need to move Roland Garros out of the centre of Paris because its too small. Whats the point in more room if they can't fill the room they have at the moment?

    tennis tickets are hard to plan if you're trying to see someone specific because theres no guarantee who will go how far into a tournament, I was very lucky to see Federer/Roddick for my very first ever match, it could have been anyone random really!

  • Amy01/06/2010 at 14:16

    If Roger wins today he is guaranteed to stay #1 even if Rafa wins the title. Which gives him enough weeks at #1 to beat Sampras' all-time-weeks-at-the-top record.

    Hooray!

    6 months away at 22.50. By two months away you're looking more at 70 I'd say. This is why I forward plan, I don't like knowing I paid more than the person sitting next to me at anything :D

  • Amy01/06/2010 at 14:27

    imagine if we'd bought silverstone tickets the day the deal was confirmed.

    thankfully they don't change the rules of tennis every year. They should totally ban refuelling though. No more bananas for Rafa, they tried to kill him once.

    judging by the number of 'it's a bank holiday!' dailies I see I feel like you folk are having long weekends all the time. I need to move.

    I love writing those. Shame the next one isn't till August...

    Hey folks.

    we actually have a long weekend next weekend but I'll be at work. It was tempting to take the day off because it's Canada weekend and the race starts at 2am and I start work at 8, but I need the 2.5x my usual hourly rate for my Spa fund.

  • RG01/06/2010 at 14:48

    Maybe... ever so slightly.

  • lou01/06/2010 at 14:49

    I didn't do the uni thing so perhaps that was the good bit.

    school has had some good times... only regarding friends though.. not so much on the work side though. i would take 4 weeks holiday and no homework over this past year though.. seeing as homework has kinda meant no evenings and weekends to do what i like..

    *shudders* did i mention that i went into the place i painted the other day to find where there had been 13 rooms all together there were now 8.. them having taken all the cables off the wall and knocked through some of the walls..

    you know what that means... it means it needs to be repainted. thank god i'm leaving! i.am.so.angry.

    i actually pointed this out over the weekend. i would guess then that jenson asked for the breakup and jessica didn't see it coming?

    oh i didn't see.. sorry. who knows.. it must have been difficult though. Hopefully they're both alright and happy :)

    on the surface, it looks like they are. i do hope they get back together, because it'll be hard to find someone better than jessica (who, for the record, i think is MUCH better than louise griffiths ever was).

  • Journeyer01/06/2010 at 15:05

    she took it well.

  • lou01/06/2010 at 15:06

    she doesn't look bothered though.

    i've heard reports that she was flying all over the place for him and he wasn't flying to Japan that much.. it's only a rumour and neither have some out and said anything but i suppose that would make sense it if was a mutual thing. but looking at pics Jenson seems much more under the weather last weekend than Jessy does it photos.

    Louise was annoying... Flo turned him into a hippy..but Jessica seemed to make him much happier however we're only seeing it from the perspective of the press... we all find Nicole annoying but Lewis must see something in her..

    Flo was all right for me. Better than Louise, but nothing like Jessica.

    As for Nicole... well... let's just say I wouldn't be surprised if she became the new Victoria Beckham...

    his button tattoo is cute :P and the one on his ankle means Ichiban.. 'number 1' and i can't think of what the other means, but they all mean something... much nicer than Kimi's *runs away from possible angry Amy and Lady Snowcat*

    Walk past the Ferrari garage during practice time and you’ll be sure to see the result of Fernando’s shenanigans. Felipe sits slouched and round-shouldered, with a downturned mouth, watching and waiting as his mechanics fettle his not-so-fast car, miserably contemplating the hell of it all.

    poor Felipe :( it's good he has Rob on his side..

    c'mon, really? felipe is miserable because he worked hard to get better for this season, and his car sucks.

    you makea good point.. i didnt see free practice.. but it seemed odd.. i've have seen lots of pics of sad ferrari people though...

    i know alonso plays mind games, but felipe is stronger than that.

    Really? I have always thought that was a weakness of his. I am sure Rob will sort him out though.

    It shouldn't be forgotten that regardless of practise he qualified and raced ahead of Alonso

  • Steven Roy01/06/2010 at 18:29

    That too but I have always had the impression that he is one of those drivers who needs to feel the team is behind him and if there was someone like Alonso trying to de-stabilise him he could crumble.

    i guess so. i don't buy it given how the pair came out fighting before alonso joined. we'll see, if darren has it right he was the first to call it, if not...

    I've got the works with VM

    The service is usually very good, 10mb package is actually very close to that

    Is definitely a fault. Just need to test it's not the Airport Extreme packing up

    I was confused because the speedo looks like it is from an old Mini or Morris Minor and I recognise some of the switchgear from other cars. Reliant made glass fibre cars and used bits from all sorts of other car companies. I have to say I have never heard of the Sabre before so I learned something.

  • Bassano01/06/2010 at 22:49

    They mentioned it a week or so ago on Macbreak

    It has to be better than Pad Pundit. Despite Andy Inatko, it's a little dry

    Though I do like Scott Bourne's photo website

  • Steven Roy01/06/2010 at 22:51

    How can those two never have done a show together and be that good straight away? It just isn't fair.

    True but that particular speedo looks exactly like the Mini or the Minor

    they have before haven't they? but not for ten years.

    damn those professionals.

    I am at work watching Roger replay. I clearly like torturing myself. Eagerly awaiting the cake I shall buy after work. It can be Australiversary and Rogisseration cake.

  • Steven Roy01/06/2010 at 22:56

    Tom just said they have never done a show together. They worked for the same company and I guess they may have both been on the same show just not one where there were only the two of them

    aww it came as a shock to all of us.. one minute it's raining.. the next Soderling won :( probably a good job you went to sleep when you did.. :)

    You do have the option of not watching

  • Amy01/06/2010 at 23:05

    Do not understand the concept of "not watching tennis" I need Soderling to beat Nadal now so Roger can stay #1

    Half the permanent ISS crew is landing in a Soyuz in the middle of Kazhakstan tonight. It is being covered by NASA TV but the timings mean I will miss it. The times listed are Central times so add 6 hours for UK time so the landing is 4:27am UK time.

    6:45 p.m. -- Coverage of Expedition 23 undocking from station, scheduled at 7:08 p.m.

    9:15 p.m. -- Coverage of deorbit burn, scheduled for 9:37 p.m., and landing in Kazakhstan, scheduled for 10:27 p.m.
