Hey Sidepodcastees, it's another happy, shiny qualifying Saturday and I invite you warmly to spend this Daily with me as we watch all the Saturday action. There's Formula 1 and there's Wimbledon tennis, but I don't know anything about tennis so I won't be mentioning it again. Now, Valencia is normally a boring track, unless you count Webber's smash last year - but with all the new-for-2011 improvements we're all hoping for an ace weekend and that we'll fall in love with the sport again. Valencia may be a street circuit, but it has no tramlines , unlike Singapore; it does, however have very tight barriers, so you can't fling the car around like a rally car, or it'll be game, set and match for you. The midfield will be hoping that the DRS zone on the straight sets them up for some overtaking moves and give them an advantage over the cars in front.

This Weekend In F1

  • Webber Won't Move Over: With Mark Webber's team mate having handled the opening third of the season significantly better than him, the murmurings are bubbling over when Red Bull will ask the Australian to play defence to Vettel's title run. But Ol' Markie scoffed at the thought. At least it was reported like scoffing - our man on the scene, Sid Pödkast, reported that the driver 'choked back tears of sadness and/or rage'. He then made a quiet reference to the lure of Ferrari and froze on the spot, potentially due to the myth that, like the T-Rex, the sports media cannot see you if you aren't moving.
  • Heidfeld: "New Clarity at Renault": Nick Heidfeld has said Renault have found a new understanding of its problems and is ready to move forward. The German, who is leading the team despite having just a one-year contract says the situation is completely clear with the Malaysian-French-English Renault-powered, Lotus-sponsored, Proton-owned team that is coloured in the livery of a cigarette company that doesn't sponsor it. "[We are] back on course" and "know which direction we are facing", added Quick Nick, who ended the last grand prix facing in the wrong direction down a non-racing part of the track.
  • Massa Predicts More Overtaking in Valencia: Felipe Massa has suggested that the Pirellis and the double-DRS zone could lead to even more overtaking at Valencia than in previous years. It's one hell of a feat to imagine, after consulting the list of classic Valencia overtakes: Fuel hose overtakes Raikkonen's pitcrew (2008); Massa overtakes Raikkonen [in the championship standings] (2008); Grosjean overtakes Badoer by spinning him out (2009); Button lets Webber through after cutting the chicane (2009); Webber overtakes Kovalainen upside-down and in the air (2010); Hamilton overtakes the Safety Car (2010). Phew! 2011 has a lot to live up to!

This Time Last Year

  • Button: "Dude, Where's My Car?"*: Jenson Button was annoyed at Mercedes GP (previously Brawn, Honda, BAR and Tyrell) for not rewarding him with his 2009 championship-winning car. Button was contracted to receive the BGP001 if he won the title, but Mercedes seemed reluctant to actually hand it over. Mercedes were unavailable for comment and journalists were unable to reach their Brackley HQ as the driveway was mysteriously jammed with lorries from Airfix, Tipp-Ex and the Stabilo Bros Highlighter Pen company.
  • USF1 Banned from F1 Forever: The final nail was pounded into USF1's coffin after the FIA forfeited its entry fees and banned them from entering F1 for life. Peter Windsor still had hopes though for his assetless motorsport venture, citing Flavio Briatore, whose lifetime ban was rescinded: "Flavio made a driver plough into a concrete wall and he's allowed back, so I don't see why USF1 won't be on the grid in 2011."
  • Drivers Criticise 'Proximity Wing' Proposal: The drivers were cool to the idea of a rear wing that could be adjusted if a driver gets within a second of the car in front (what would become DRS). Barrichello didn't like that the attacking driver could use it but not the defending one; Kubica said that there was no entertainment in seeing cars overtake on a straight; Webber said it was too much like a video game; Sutil said that it took away from the skill of defending.

This Time Next Year

    F1 Shake Up On The Way: Bernie Ecclestone has declared the DRS/KERS/Pirelli era of F1 far too boring and has demanded that the FIA change the rules. 'The races are too consistently entertaining,' said the billionaire magical river sprite. 'Everyone turns up knowing that there's going to be great overtaking, mixed-strategies and a surprise winner. It's dull. We want people to watch without knowing if it's going to be a dull procession or not - I think the ideal amount is 10% great races, 90% dull processions because you've got to keep people waiting for the good ones.' Rumour has it that the new Tilke-designed Moscow track will be 26 chicances joined end-to-end in an effort to clamp down on overtaking.

    'No Issues With Morality', say Ferrari: Stefano Domenicali has rebutted claims that Ferraris sponsorship deals are contrary to the spirit of F1. 'When we race, we race only with the logos and liveries that we are allowed,' said the team principal of Scuderia Ferrari Marlboro Herion. 'As a business, for sure we work with a number of companies outside the scope of F1, but that is the business and F1 is the racing.' Domenicali has been fighting fires left and right after official photos of the team's motorhome featured a poster on Alonso's bedroom wall with the slogan, "Iranian warheads are the best warheads" and the team announced a technical partnership with Packard Bell.

    The F1-2010 Driver's Perspective: Valencia

    As an F1 driver in the simulated world of F1-2010, I pretty much have an exact idea of how the experts drive the Valencian race, so here's the low down:

    At the start, the drivers drift to the inside and go late on the brakes - don't worry, the cars ahead will slow them you down when they crash into them and push them into the wall on the outside. The drivers will want to try and keep close to the cars ahead as they make their way to the swing bridge where they will inevitably spin out over the kerbs. After recovering, they will head down the back straight, only to be overtaken by two or three cars on better setups, but an aggressive late brake into the chicane will force a few retirements. They'll need to manage the sliding car around the back of the circuit until they reach the final slow chicane and from their its a full throttle adventure to the final corner. At this point the drivers will probably have their eyes closed and praying for their lives and they zip between the barriers at full speed. Expect to see the likes of Kobayashi and Massa reaching for the Restart button as they make errors in this section. The final corner is a tricky one, so lots of drivers will probably accidentally drive into the pitlane as they brake too late and get confused by the circuit lines. Then, cross the finish line and repeat until the chequered flag. Simple!

      Searching the site reveals the only options are lots of football and volleyball (non-beach), with a bit of weight lifting..

      Thinking will dovetail the £FOC road cycling with some volleyball then.

      True. On the other hand, at least he now knows where his limit is. Might help him avoid crashing in the race? At least I hope so - Sato's been a lot better in IndyCar, but it seems that along with his newfound pace, he's also rediscovered his old friend, raggedness.

      He doesn't crash when he has a stable car under him. See BAR 2004 and Super Aguri 2007 (which is a Honda 2006 in effect). He might've gotten a good amount of help from the TC too. Come to think of it, he may have left F1 at the right time, if he was more reliant on the TC than first thought.

      A lot like Koybayashi (?, can never get it right).

      Right now, I'm inclined to say Kobayashi has more potential than Sato. Kobayashi's finishing rate is much higher, and he had excellent overtaking numbers in 2009 and 2010, before DRS was implemented. Sato did get a very good car under him - the 2004 BAR was no slouch, and was 2nd-best car of that year behind only Ferrari. To get only 1 podium in that car (and throw away a 2nd one after a reckless accident with Rubens where only Sato got damaged) is very disappointing.

      Barrichello was a comfortable 2nd ahead of Button, so I still think the Ferrari was better. Also, one factor that is taken against BAR is that they didn't win a race, when the next 3 teams behind them (Renault, Williams, McLaren) won 1 apiece.

      Perhaps, but with a 17 rider field, a couple of injuries and you are down to 15-14. Blah. MotoGP needs a way to have backup riders ready to go at a moment's notice, i.e. an injured rider in Quali should be able to be replaced for the race. Perhaps even for the race-day warm up. Next year looks better with what, 6 new bikes (or is that teams)?

      Nope. Manufacturers have been pulling out. And unlike F1, they don't sell their teams to privateers when they do pull out. Privateers have also struggled financially.

      Hmmm... Drop-in's aren't really Garageband's speciality to be honest. You may need to add a separate track for each piece you want to re-record and then line them up later using the drag tool.

      Thereafter you could export as a single wav file, but I find there's no real easier easier way to do it on Garageband in a professional manner. I suppose it depends how you want it to sound.

      You could apply a noise gate, but if I remember correctly Garageband doesn't have one. To be frankly honest, noise gate's can be a bit hit-and-miss - I often find it's easier to just re-record the piece again and try to "dampen" the room to block out excess outside noise.

      It could also come down to the type of mic used. The poorer the mic, the more noise spillage it picks up.

    • Pat W25/06/2011 at 15:39

      I saw a Blundell mention earlier. Anyone else we know in it?

      I've been trying to work that out. The biggest names from an F1 perspective are Blundell and Herbert, sharing a VW but not a front-running one (well it is in their class I think).

      Lots of names we know from Le Mans. Pedro Lamy in a BMW (actually entered into two cars..).

      The leading Ferrari is one from Le Mans and has Farnbacher and Simonsen joined by one of Alia's favourites, Jaime Melo.

      Timo Bernhard, Lucas Luhr and Romain Dumas who've all raced Audis in LM are in a Porsche.

      Mika Salo is sharing a nice-looking experimental Ferrari P4/5 with Nicola Larini and Fabrizio Giovanardi. It isn't built by Ferrari though, built by N-Technology for those who might know them..

      Still looking through the very long list..

    • Christine25/06/2011 at 15:39

      The driver of the other car involved in the accident, which stayed in the gravel trap, is still in the car and they want to cut the car to get rim out.

      The track is sending extra machinery to help with the cleanup.

    • Kai25/06/2011 at 16:38

      The driver is out and walking back to the pits.

      The irony is the other driver who had a less intense looking shunt into the tire barrier is still in the car and they trying to get him out. He's alert and awake but they wanted to use the jaws to cut the car. The driver said it's his car and he will not let them cut it. Doctors are attending to him. Joe Foster is the driver, I just heard.

      When does the Indycar race kick off?

      2am.

      There's a Villeneuve-does-NASCAR-Nationwide-at-Road-America at 10.30pm and the N24 is live now.

    • Steven Roy25/06/2011 at 19:51

      2am.

      I may watch a bit of NASCAR later and I will definitely watch a bit more from the Nurburgring

      When he got pole I posted a comment saying that I would bet he would crash on lap 1. He didn't wait that long. He crashed in a practise session later the same day so he starts from pole with a re-built car

      Not all F1 stewards are slow - and Lamy's been in the wars again.

      @lendurancelive

      Pedro Lamy gets a three minute stop and go for his assault of a slower car at Karussel: that's a four hour wait for the decision there.

    • Steven Roy25/06/2011 at 21:28

    • Pat W25/06/2011 at 21:30

      Lamy's penalty appears to be for driving in the wrong direction

      He did. I ran wide at the preceding corner which put him on the grass on the inside of Karussel, he t-boned a slower class BMW and ended up facing the wrong way. Couldn't turn immediately due to the banking so he drove back down the course 50m to turn around (although the slower car managed a 5-point turn without going anywhere).

    • Pat W25/06/2011 at 21:30

      he ran wide not I ran wide

      I saw it in replay on Audi TV

      1)Valencia F1 race is on a 4 hour delay tomorrow. National 'free to air' FOX affiliates, just delayed. BTW, this is only one of a very few on the national 'free/over the air' schedule. The rest are exclusively on cable/SPEED

      2) NASCAR @ Sonoma airs on TNT (another cable network) tomorrow @3pm. One of two road course races and they stuff it onto a network that some cable providers don't even carry in their basic packages anymore

      NFL, OTOH, gets prime-time priority to the detriment of their other programming.

      You have to wonder how the teams let JV and Papis get those penalties. They should be talking to them and making sure those things don't happen. Getting a penalty for something in the heat of battle is one thing but those were both slo mo incidents

      There are so many "minor" rules that you can' be yapping in the drivers ear all day long. I am sure that if I had to pass a driving exam, 100%. There would be a few places I would make mistakes, knowing I can't make any mistakes.

      A twitter chat is hardly "knowing", but thanks for that. :)

      I saw them in NYC last fall - phenomenal show. I've loved them since "Sounds from Thievery Hi-Fi" but that was my first time seeing them.

      I'm waiting to hear if the audition I sent in will be used so I can have my first official hired job as a voice over actor. The job comes from the Netherlands where a company is working on an iPad story for children. I don't have a great feeling about it, and usually I'm pretty good at being able to tell, but we'll see.

      I would agree. As a feeder series, even Nationwide is all FAIL, since the Sprint cup guys/teams usually dominate that series, as well.

      "ohh, we'll just extend the race a half dozen laps until we get a racing finish"

      How about they not throw a full course caution/yellow? (that would take track marshals who can retrieve a stricken car without getting in the way of the actual racing)

      Yeah. Daytona is worse, where each class has their pit lap, so any yellow is a 4 lap deal. 1 lap to regroup. 1 DP, 1 GT, one regroup. Green. Last year, or the year before in Montreal there were 52 minutes of yellow over a 2 hour race.

      Joe, you're down in Miami area right? I think we may have talked about heading to the cape for a launch a few years ago

      I am in SW Fla, Ft. Myers area. Are there anymore launches?

      No last one was last week...right Steven/

    • gravit826/06/2011 at 00:42

      okay 1 more

    • Bert26/06/2011 at 00:42

      No Papajohns, large up to 7 topping for $11

      Damn! They deliver to Montréal? I'll have the vegetarian, but replace the peppers with sausage, the tomato with cappicolo, the mushrooms with more sausage and 4 more sausage.

      Hey, I used to work for Clay County Fire/Rescue. I freaking hated it

      So is my stepmonster. Steer clear. :)

    • gravit826/06/2011 at 00:42

      I think it was the last night launch, I really wanted to see that.

    • Joe in Fla26/06/2011 at 00:42

      So is my stepmonster. Steer clear.

      Will do, tell her to stay off Sanibel

    • gravit826/06/2011 at 00:43

      yeah I got laid of a year ago...lived outta my truck for a few months b/c my lease was up the same month, and no jobs to be found. Left the swamp far behind

    • Kai26/06/2011 at 00:43

      Will do, tell her to stay off Sanibel

      I think you're safe there.

      Can't do Florida unless there is very long delay -6 months

    • gravit826/06/2011 at 00:45

      I find it soo depressing. I'm a big sci-fi buff and we're backing away from space.

      boooooooo

    • gravit826/06/2011 at 00:45

      k so finally everyone realizes thay'd like to finish

    • Steven Roy26/06/2011 at 00:46

      I find it soo depressing. I'm a big sci-fi buff and we're backing away from space.

      The good thing is there are going to be a lot of private companies launching all sorts of things

    • gravit826/06/2011 at 00:46

      THAT TEARS IT. I'm done with nascar

      I was at UCF and they were always shooting something off and from Orlando, it looked great

    • Steven Roy26/06/2011 at 00:46

      There are more people in the gravel now than any of the other three times they could have finished the race

    • Bert26/06/2011 at 00:46

      A few cars around.... this should finnish under yellow in a a bit.

    • gravit826/06/2011 at 00:47

      yeah, I know...I moved to New Mexico so I guess I migrated along with the spaceflight

    • gravit826/06/2011 at 00:47

      un-flippin-believable.

    • Joe in Fla26/06/2011 at 00:47

      I bet the deep desert is a great place to star gaze

    • gravit826/06/2011 at 00:48

      Yellow, and now they have to make it back across the line on fuel. WHAT A JOKE

    • Kai26/06/2011 at 00:48

      I bet the deep desert is a great place to star gaze

      ooh, yeah.

      very much so

      Shocking :)

    • Pat W26/06/2011 at 00:49

      Struggled to watch the end due to choppy feed but it seems they just can't finish a road course race properly.. worse than a touring car race with all the bumping and pushing off

    • gravit826/06/2011 at 00:49

      This is unreal. a dozen cars out with a wreck, a dozen caution laps, and now the finishing order relies upon the cars making it back to the s/f.

      this is so ridiculous

    • Joe in Fla26/06/2011 at 00:50

      I bet the deep desert is a great place to star gaze

      I remember at Boy Scout camp, with no ambient light, the sky looked like a piece of art. And in the summer, the star showers were rampant

    • lou26/06/2011 at 00:50

      Shocking :)

      :) i must now sleep/listen to coldplay i'll see ya'll for the race :) thank you for not getting mad at my coldplay love. Seeing them headline glasto is epic :) anyways... nighty night! enjoy IndyCar! x

    • gravit826/06/2011 at 00:50

      'Oh, you ran out of fuel after we threw the last caution and froze the flag, so you don't get the place you were at when we threw the caution'

    • Steven Roy26/06/2011 at 00:50

      This is a total mess. NASCAR has a policy of not changing the result after the race but the leader passed under yellow. Something has to give

    • Steven Roy26/06/2011 at 00:50

      I'd be throwing things at the screen if I was a fan right now

    • gravit826/06/2011 at 00:52

      Fireworks guys are all 'FINALLY! I've been holding the lit match for a half hour!'

    • gravit826/06/2011 at 00:52

      getting a push from a teamate. that, at least, is classy

    • Joe in Fla26/06/2011 at 00:52

      3rd degree burns on fingertips?

    • Steven Roy26/06/2011 at 00:53

      I'd be throwing things at the screen if I was a fan right now

      Imagine you are a driver who lifts off when you see a yellow and someone else just drives past you. Absolutely crazy.

      If they allow this the next time they throw a yellow in this situation everyone is going to ignore it and someone could get killed

    • gravit826/06/2011 at 00:53

      F1 stewards would be busy all night with a finish like this

    • gravit826/06/2011 at 00:54

      If they allow this the next time they throw a yellow in this situation everyone is going to ignore it and someone could get killed

      which is exactly why they have those rules in place. On an oval, it's pretty easy to figure out who was where but this is absurd

    • Kai26/06/2011 at 00:55

      Every time they mention Ron Fellows I think of that Tracy Morgan character on Saturday Night Live, Brian Fellows.

    • gravit826/06/2011 at 00:55

      wrecker pushing and towing a car around the track, some bumping to JV (which he rightly deserves)

    • gravit826/06/2011 at 00:55

      fistfights in the post-race?

      Thank God.

      max and JV gonna get into it

    • gravit826/06/2011 at 00:58

      DAMN that kid is young. Wonder if he's got a proper DL

      He looks like he's about 15.

    • Steven Roy26/06/2011 at 00:59

      Is there an Indy thread or are we just going to switch to Sunday's daily?

    • gravit826/06/2011 at 01:00

      was just wondering the same thing

    • Joe in Fla26/06/2011 at 01:00

      cool vortices coming off the rear wings

    • gravit826/06/2011 at 01:02

      sweet the feed just jumped over

    • Steven Roy26/06/2011 at 01:03

      Can we move all Indycar comments into Sunday's daily so that we are all in the same place?
