You're doing it wrong, Doctor.

You're doing it wrong, Doctor.

It's Friday! Hurrah! My favourite day of the week for so many reasons. The end of the week, the start of a new F1 weekend, and of course I get to share a daily with you and that's just the cherry on top of an ice cream made of awesome. And ice cream, of course. There's so much win to share today though. I mean, after all, today is Pi Approximation Day - after all, 22⁄7 is an approximation of pi and today is 22/7! We should celebrate with an approximation of pie. And by that, I mean a whole pie. Several of them. Also, it's a race weekend! So make sure you check out Christine's wonderful collection of race information and enjoy Free Practise today if you can. But first, linkables to enjoy...

Paddock News

Long Live the King... - What a brilliant way to kick off a special weekend to be a Rubens weekend. OK, so it may not be Hockenheim, but the German GP was the first top step finish for Rubens in 2000. What a day, tears were had, brazilian flags were flown, and rain was... raining. But now Rubens has expressed the news that he and Williams are negotiating a drive for 2012 and quite right too. With the return of the Renault engines and Rubens still be awesome at the age of 59 it's exciting times!! Isn't it kind of wierd how he nearly lost his drive before 2009 to Bruno, who bugged me immensely because of that, and now he's still going on several years later after almost winning a championship again and now I heart Bruno too?

Costa La Vista, Baby - And it's a very not so warm goodbye to Ferrari chief engineer Also Costa as the team put him on gardening leave and throw him out in the garbage at the end of the year. Whether he will do any actual gardening has yet to be confirmed. I guess it costa lot in how much they've lost out this year already. I suppose Aldo could head to the Costa Del Sol for a bit if he needs a break, and if he's lacking money, he can always go shopping at Costa. For coffee. Puns are fun.

Can the Trulliometer go that low? - I'm quite excited by this news. The man of moan, the source of all issues, Jarno Trulli, has been suited and booted from the car for this upcoming weekend and replaced by the walking Wikipedia that is Karun Chandhok. Fantastic news I reckon and it's time Karun got a go and seeing how close he can finish to Heikki. Of course it's not all good stuff - RG wrote a quite frankly brilliant post expressing his dismay and annoyance at the decision and it's such a well rounded argument I found at least even if you disagree.

Elsewhere...

Formula 1's not for nerds. It's for geeks! - As if you all need any more reasons why Formula 1 is worth watching, why not 10 more geeky reasons why it's worth it? Yeah, go on then. You can never have enough reasons I find. Science, computers, superhuman athletes, science fiction, and so on and so on. Plus as David Croft said a few weeks ago, if enjoying F1 makes me a geek then bring on the anoraks! F1 fans are just the best geeks ever.

Who's your Destination? - Man, I love this. Some people just have too much time and quite right too when they create absolute genius like this. What if the world of Doctor Who was represented in the form of the London Underground? Absolutely stunning job and the amount of depth is absurd! Talking about Doctor Who, the header image was created by the also genius 500year_diary it seems and can be found over at How to be a Retronaut. Doctor Who fans are just the best geeks ever.

Sonic the Hedgehog is almost as old as me? That's scary - A few weeks ago you may have remembered I wished out favourite blue hedgehog a happy blue birthday (da ba dee da ba dye) and by that I mean a good birthday because he is of the blue variant rather than a depressing birthday. Anyways, I digress - SEGA have put together a brilliant little video highlighting the transformation of Sonic as he evolved from a Megadrive icon to a bit of a shadow of his former self (literally with Shadow the Hedgehog). It shows his better moments from early days, less memoerable moments from newer games, and also Sonic the Hedgehog on the Xbox. Gaming geeks are just the bes... you see where I'm going.

Tiny Linkables So Tiny You Could Eat Them for Breakfast

That's that for another week, I'm afraid. I hope you've enjoyed reading because the last few Friday's have been a bit wierd not getting a chance to write a proper daily but huzzah! Hurrah! Well, I chanted that whilst writing at least because I'm cool like that. But I hope you have a wonderful day and enjoy Friday to the full because it's not long until the weekend and more awesome F1 to look forward too. See you in the comments, lovely people!

    Jamie Murray had a wee whinge on twitter about being beaten by Blake/Isner in the doubles then them withdrawing from the next match.

    "Why do singles players enter doubles tournaments with zero intention of finishing the tournament? Something needs to be done. #badkarma

    I guess I can kind of understand what he means but on the other hand it sounds like he's just whinging because he got beaten. Maybe if you played better tennis you wouldn't be beaten by "singles" players and this wouldn't be an issue.

    I totally get it. It's flipping irritating if people stop you having things you want then don't even use them. I think it's silly to enter a tournament if you're gonna drop out for reasons other than injury. I'm sure another pair would have loved that slot. It's just a waste.

    its a waste, but why not beat them and knock them out legitimately?

    Absolutely that would be ideal. I don't feel for Jamie Murray, I feel sorry for whatever wildcard might have been allowed to compete in the tournament instead though.

    I guess its a tough one because organisers like having the singles players there because without them a lot of people don't even care about the doubles, and a lot of singles players are nice and will actually play out a tournament so its impossible to say beforehand which ones will drop out.

    Maybe they should tell them if they drop out, they have to drop out the singles too. Why do they play in the doubles if they can't be bothered?

    The last Australian GP cost $50 million dollars. there's outrage for some taxpayers apparently.

    It would be interesting to see the profit/loss for the entire time the GP has been in Melbourne. I'm guessing that there has been a lot of money made over the years from all the visitors.

  • paul22/07/2011 at 05:13

    Isn't there every year? Some parts of the media, or maybe it's someone else, like to drag this one up after every race. I suppose they will get rid of it eventually. I think motorsport in general is just a very easy target. I thought the crowds this year were huge. I imagine it will be even bigger next year if Webber and Disco Dan are both racing, but some people just don't like it.

    The real shame is that, I suspect, if it goes from Melbourne it will be gone from Australia for good.

    It all depends how the numbers are presented, statistics are works of art. Many different causes can be backed by using the same set of numbers ...

    There is a case of Brno and MotoGP. One of the best attended races on calendar is in danger because of the hosting fees. The fees are nowhere near the F1 fees but still the organizers rely on the support of the local government. There is big chance that the funds gained only in extra VAT generated by visitors, spectators etc would more than offset the funds needed to keep the race going on. Yet the governments like to be re-elected and there are obviously more eligible voters than motorbike racing fans. And not all the eligible voters can comprehend the basic math. But many can understand if someone tells them "we just cut the government spending by XXX millions"

    hmmm, yes.

    Reading the article though, it is a shame that the cost to "taxpayers" has risen from 1.7M to over 50M in 11 year. I wonder if that is Bernie, or other costs. If it is Bernie, he really needs to take a good look at what is going on. Melbourne was huge with the crowd. Sending the race somewhere with 10 people in the stand would just be stupid.

    I really do not know all the financial consequences and I do not want sound like like Bernie's lawyer :-) but again it depends how much the community is gaining. would be interesting to compare for example the hotel prices (and taxes collected) 11 years ago and now. food, drink prices 11 years ago and now etc etc. profits made by everyone involved other than government. also see where the collected tax goes to. there are different levels of government imposing different taxes. the one contributing the most may also be the one gaining the least etc etc

    it is not all black and white

    they like to ignore the $32-$39 million that it bought in, it's still a net loss but its not all bad. I'm sure the 350 full time workers would love being unemployed too :)

    Lessons learned in last 24 hours. Sarcasm doesn't come across well on twitter. MASSIVE!

    It's a dangerous tool with 140 characters to play with and then to attempt sarcasm at the start of a race weekend. Especially following the back and fro of rules at Silverstone

    Poor judgement in my eyes from a professional journo

    One question. What are the ride heights? I see that some drivers talk about that, but I can't find the correct translation.

    Could you explain me what they are, please ?

    Thanks :)

    The height of the car from the ground

  • Bassano22/07/2011 at 17:22

    The height of the car from the ground

    Greater height allows more suspension travel which is more important on a bumpy circuit

    I really have to say, following practise on the live text (on IE6 as well, damn computers) from the BBC at work really makes you appreciate just how good the FBFB is. Mahoosive difference in information provided.

    Well sidepodcast has now been put in the sports quota category at work... Fame at last for Sidepodcast! But it does mean that I am allowed to only look at sidepodcast for 90 minutes a day... Or rather each time I want to look at sidepodcast I have to request a 5 minute block where I can look at it as much as I like, and then it shuts off... So it ammounts to me only being able to look at Sidepodcast 18 times. Which is particularly weird on the realtime pages because updates just stop appearing and I get an error if I try and post a comment. Companies have some very strange ideas about the internet.

    Judy: When I was offered the role, I was immediately cautious, I wondered, could I, Dame Judy Dench, really sustain a consistant dial tone for the required three seconds? I realised that my fear of the role was exactly why I should embrace the role. I through myself into the world of telephony and telephone calls and spend six months researching the role. I feel all of that work and effort has been paid back as I receive this my 8,023rd BAFTA.

    well yes and no. Windows 7 will drive change in browers because while IT could ignore IE upgrades they can't ignore windows 7 and ie 6 or 7 won't run on 7.

    But the other big thing driving change is the iPad... It's being sold into quite a large number of businesses. And people are then going to their IT departments and saying, "why doesn't my machine work like this" and "why is this better than the fancy machine you made me buy".

He gets so het up by the detail, he was complaining one time for 20 minutes about how hopeless it is that the USB cable is symmetrical on the outside by asymmetrical on the inside so you don't know which way up it is.

    Hi

    Seeing as how Vettel will take pole tomorrow, I've decided to play golf instead. Or try, anyway.

    I was looking back over a couple of older posts the other night and forgot how much the video for Republica's "Ready to Go" gives me a startling headache.

    (watches first few seconds) i can see why

    You have S'Express in there as well.

    I found out recently the US version of Theme From.. had no samples in it

    I honestly don't remember it. It was higher in the charts, but for a shorter time - when I heard it recently, I drew a complete blank.

    I always preferred that one, although maybe because of an overdose of hearing Ready To Go on the Sky Sports football coverage

    Well if we thought F1 could be weird...

    @PantherRacing

    Appears every IndyCar media outlet is reporting our practice is moved to 5:15 ... although we haven't been told that from ....... IndyCar.

    So now FANS are telling us today's activities have been canceled ... perhaps IndyCar has lost our team manager's Email address?

  • Leigh O'Gorman22/07/2011 at 21:15
