It seems like order had been restored in the sporting world as the favourites reign supreme (well almost) in both football and tennis. As for Formula One, all seems quiet for now. But with a grand prix coming up (even if it is just Valencia), things might heat up soon:

  • Lotus had a family outing of sorts, with Heikki and other older company coming around to drive antique cars. How sweet!
  • Mercedes may need a spy of their own as their current methods of copying have not been very effective...
  • Meanwhile, some Schumacher fans just don't give up. But this quote (along with Mr. C's reply) is simply classic.
  • Alex Zanardi's thirst for racing has not died down. National handbike champion is another title he adds to his list of achievements.
  • It has been a positive day on Christine's rankings as the selected few register a large gain in points. Tweets of the week has also been posted, with Ferrari dominating proceedings as usual. :D
  • Another F1 blog goes bust. Thank goodness Mr. and Mrs. C thought of downshifting instead of clearing out for good.
  • It hasn't stopped other sites from messing with each other though.
  • James Allen's site has been taken over by FOTA. Let's hope it will not end up like their own.
  • Goodwood is approaching! Who are you going to watch out for?
  • rFactor has received a new mod in the form of FSONE 2009 1.0. Brawn cars, Kimi's helmet and the option to use KERS await!
  • In fact, Jenson may think of getting this update for a ride on his winning car, rather than unpleasantly fighting with his former employers.
  • Jon is planning something epic. Stay tuned.
  • Brazilians racers join in the football fun. But where is Rubens?
  • Is all the football talk confusing you? Or just not getting what Wimbledon is about? But no worries as here at Sidepodcast we are going to have breakout threads to keep things in perspective. And if in doubt, you can always consult Christine.
  • For those who have really nothing better to do (though I doubt it with the amount of sports waiting for you to enjoy) you can always watch a map where trains move along the tracks. Because it is like, fun. ;)
  • Finally, there is a new cute way of shortening those troublesome long links!

Wow, I didn't expect it to be that long. Anyway, hope you have a lovely sports-filled day and remember to join us on the breakout threads (or even contribute one of your own)!

    sato was unlucky though - at iowa if you sitting that distance from someone's rear, you lose; however if you literally on top of them you can keep it through the corners

    it happens unfortunately

    perfectly understand where that one came from. facing same situation. you start doing something for fun, then it starts to grow, you get some audience, you happy about it, you want to grow it. to keep and grow that audience requires more and more time and one day you realize it is all taking up way too much time that is missing somewhere else. then a decision has to be made ...

    Not fun though.

  • Alex Andronov22/06/2010 at 08:30

    True...

    What if Franck made you breakfast? Actually that would probably be the same as the parachuting version.

  • Christine22/06/2010 at 08:34

    What if Franck made you breakfast? Actually that would probably be the same as the parachuting version.

    It's tricky, because I don't really like breakfast. But I wouldn't want to be rude and refuse breakfast from Franck. Then again, I would probably have fainted anyway, so eating would be tricky.

  • Alex Andronov22/06/2010 at 08:36

    It's tricky, because I don't really like breakfast. But I wouldn't want to be rude and refuse breakfast from Franck. Then again, I would probably have fainted anyway, so eating would be tricky.

    What if... You stayed up really really late because you were watching Franck winning Le Mans and then he came and made you breakfast because it was actually breakfast time, but actually because you'd all been up all night he actually made you dinner and there was cake for desert?

    I think that could work, except for the fainting of course.

  • Christine22/06/2010 at 08:37

    I think that could work, except for the fainting of course.

    That would work. And we know he gets hungry after driving, so it's a very likely scenario.

  • Christine22/06/2010 at 08:40

    I think that could work, except for the fainting of course.

    Also, if I have to stay up all night, I'd probably either be really drunk or high on energy drinks, so that might solve the fainting issue too.

    Users have no control over them, they just fly off and land anywhere, so it's akin to littering. If they land near wildlife they can seriously scare them. If wildlife eat bits of them they can die. If it lands in crops, it ruins tractors and things.

    the flame goes out once the solid fuel cube burns out and then the whole thing drops down as there is no hot air to keep it up. so, should not be much danger there

    i was looking at the goodwood site the other day and there was a FAQ about earplugs. Their answer was that children should wear them etc... and if you needed some they are sold in the shop.. so i'm guessing they wouldn't want to give them away if they can sell them :( silly goodwood.

    McLaren have a system where one preson is responsible for designing next year's car then next year that person switches to the race team to run the car and someone else does alternate years. He is one of those people but I don't know if he designed this year's car or is workng on next years.

    So they have time to slot someone else in there and it won't affect the running of this year's car

  • lou22/06/2010 at 18:31

    McLaren have a system where one preson is responsible for designing next year's car then next year that person switches to the race team to run the car and someone else does alternate years. He is one of those people but I don't know if he designed this year's car or is workng on next years. McLaren will not be greatly affected because they have so many people and such a complicated structure but Ferrari could gain a lot next season.

    ah okay. well a close fight at the front is what we want :)

  • lou22/06/2010 at 18:31

    he designed last year's lemon.

    so.. f1 drivers who'll be in action over the weekend =

    Heikki, Karun, Jenson, Lewis, Rosberd, Heidfeld, Trulli, and Bruno Senna.

    I'm assuming maybe Gary Paffett will be there on the friday to take the mclaren up the hill, seeing as JB and Lewis are there Sat and Sun.

    this needs to be a post at some point but...

    re: the mark webber video. if you play it on the homepage, or in the post itself, the video plays in standard definition. if you download the video using the normal podcast feed, you also get the standard definition version.

    however, there is also a link in the post to download an hd version of the same video. the hd version also plays if you view the video on this page:

    http://sidepodcast.com/video/

    it should be noted that if you use firefox or ie, you'll need a really good computer to play hd footage within flash. users of safari or chrome will likely have a better experience (html5 rocks).

    finally, you down subscribe to hd videos using this feed:

    http://feeds.sidepodcast.com/sidepodcasttv/hd/

    hd videos look great in itunes, but will not sync to iphone 3 / ipod / itouch, but they will sync to the ipad (and i think the iphone 4).

    we are thrilled to confirm that throughout the weekend the cricket pitch will rock to the sound of 20 car-related songs. A display of 20 cars immortalised in each song’s title or lyrics will be shown around the Goodwood cricket pitch, with a troupe of dancers performing around each appropriate car as the corresponding song is played on a special radio show compiled and presented by the legendary disc jockey Johnnie Walker.

    whoops!

    Jenson Button climbed back up to seventh in the Castrol Rankings this week, despite not being in action.

    no.words.

    There must have been an event this weekend 1 year ago which they removed. {Comment #273}

    Yes. His British Grand Prix (where Jenson finished 6th) will have fallen off the ranking. Alternatively, other people around him may have lost results where they excelled (have Vettel, Webber and most especially Barrichello lost positions?)

    I'm still sceptical about Pat (not Nick) Fry going to Ferrari he was one of people responsible for the MP4-24 and it doesn't seem McLaren did a lot to keep him.

    they really didn't. on the other hand, he could still be of use to ferrari, if only from a "here's how mclaren plan to follow up the f-duct", point of view.

    he doesn't need to design anything.

    they really didn't. on the other hand, he could still be of use to ferrari, if only from a "here's how mclaren plan to follow up the f-duct", point of view.

    The only problem is that the tubs are homologated, making it difficult to for the rest to copy McLaren completely. He can defiantly help though I'm sure.

    He was also working on the MP4-26 as part of the McLaren rotation, so some secrets to be passed there ;)

  • Steven Roy22/06/2010 at 21:39

    Just thought of another reason for Ferrari to hire Pat Fry. Ferrari have run nothing but Bridgestones for a very long time so they may want someone who knows how to make a car work on Michelins either because Michelin get the tyre contract or to use that knowlegde and extrapolate from it if Pirelli do

    i can add the ticket i want to buy without logging in but it then tells me there is nothing in the basket..

    It messed me around a bit. I added the ticket without a problem, but I went to add the programme and it lost the ticket. I had to re-add it.

    he usually does things like this for me if he's building up to ask me to spend a day or two doing something IT based for him... i feel i am about to acquire another project...

    but thank you :)

    wow. i have my own debit card which is awesome... but Dad said he'd pay for goodwood and i'm not going to argue with him if he offers to pay for me :D

    Pay it yourself, print the receipt and get the money off him.

    Yes. One of them went out in the street and did it while the other one commented. I can't believe people get paid for that when I used to get in trouble for doing it when I was a kid
