The big news of the moment is Red Bull's return to two-team ownership, as Mateschitz buys out Berger's half of Toro Rosso. This raises many, many questions, and is what we've been talking about in the comments. Well, that and a game of Space I Spy, obviously.

  • At the time of writing, the game stands with Lou and she has offered us a 'w'. Make your best guesses in the comments.
  • Why the sudden turn around from Dietrich? Five minutes ago he wanted to wash his hands completely of Toro Rosso and now he has taken full control. Where does this leave Berger? And what does it mean for the driver situation?
  • The discussion still keeps coming round to Coulthard's baby name: Dayton Minier Coulthard. Can't have too many DC's in the world, I guess.
  • And in non-Red Bull news, Rosberg has said he will rethink his position at Williams depending on how they do this season. There's us thinking he's a one-team man. Who do you think he could go to? Where would he fit best?

Don't hold back if you've got something to say that isn't on the above list. It's all very flexible round here and we love to hear from you, no matter what. Also, don't forget to check out the very recently released fifth episode of Sidepodpanel. I will see you in the comments.

    so, the great "top gear downloaded via itunes" experiment came to an abrupt halt this evening when the file i acquired (the one i'd paid for by means of a season pass, ontop of my licence fee which already paid to make the program), contained a rather scatty audio track, followed by silence.

    that means not only do i watch the show a week later than everyone else, i now have to learn to lip read too.

    on plus side, because i resorted to watching it on iPlayer, i opted to watch this week's show too, so at least i'm up to date.

    Hello to everyone, I'd like to see Berger working in Red Bull next year, in my opinion he is the man behind the technical development and knows very well how to take the best of a pilot.

    In the other hand, switch motors with Toro Rosso is very risky, Renault will have chance to improve their engine this winter like Ferrari, but as we know Ferrari had engine problems this year (BBK), while Renault with DC used the same engine in 3 races, ok someone would say he didn´t finished all those races but at least it didn´t exploded.

    Sorry for my English I still learning=)

    Bye!

    Hello to everyone

    hi camilo.

    I’d like to see Berger working in Red Bull next year, in my opinion he is the man behind the technical development and knows very well how to take the best of a pilot.

    i can't believe that he'll be happy to turn his back on f1 after the year he's just had. he must have a master plan hidden somewhere?

    while Renault with DC used the same engine in 3 races

    they did, although didn't webber have a failure in china? i think renault must have learnt a lot from their engine troubles this year. here's hoping anyhow.

    Sorry for my English I still learning=)

    just like the rest of us then :)

    Good Morning all,

    On the RedBull/Toro Rosso thing - is Dieter buying back his stake to make it easier to sell, or is he doing it to take the best bits from both teams and make a 'Super RedBull'?

    I can't help wondering if the fact that Toro Rosso beat them AND they had better engines than RedBull have something to do with this...

    Interesting thing I've just found. Been playing Need For Speed Most Wanted for the past couple of days and I've noticed something. When you install nitrous on a car, if you use it all up, it regenerates as you drive fast. So in essence, it's not a nitrous system - it's KERS! :D

  • Dank26/11/2008 at 12:48

    Buemi and British F3 driver Brendon Hartley will be covering Webber at testing in Jerez between Dec 15-17. Buemi will spend all three days in the car, whilst Hartley will be in it for the first day before Vettel takes over for the remaining two.

    Yup, that was what I thought. But wait, the article said they'd switch for 2010, but they're staying with McLaren for 2009. So I don't think they're sponsoring more than one team at a time. :)

    The only thing that remotely makes sence about the medals thing is that by handing out 3 sets of medals per race (as opposed to 8 sets of points per race) Bernie is chopping FIA's expenses while at the same time jacking up FIA's prices for hosting races so that he can use the services of the best devoice lawyers on the planet.

    Looks like there will be no money left for Bernie, Slav and the kids or for that matter the entire F!A at the end of this one.

    Never been done. Twice we have had a driver win the championship with only one win. 1958 Mike Hawthorn had one win but there were not many races in the championship in them days. Then in 1982 Keke Rosberg only had one win but 11 different drivers won races that season so it was a bit unusual to say the least. Had it been a remotely normal season FerrFerrari would have strolled it but their number one driver Gilles Villeneuve was killed then his number 2 Didier Pironi smashed his legs to bits and never raced again.

    Is Bernie playing the Mosley-game when he says “all the teams are happy”? I’m yet to read a quote from any of the teams about this proposed change, much like how the mysterious letters of support Max received during his saga in April never saw the light of day.

    From my post on the medal system, just published.

    I don't get why the teams are so silent on this either - perhaps Bernie is negotiating something with them all and this is what the teams have decided he should get in lieu of whatever it is they will get. Quite what though, I have no idea - just speculating, of course.

  • Kathi26/11/2008 at 18:04

    I think the last few years have proven that they can do whatever they want. The fans will still watch and I guess the medal system is easier for newbies. Instead of having to remember who gets how many points there will just be a medal table.

    And Bernie has managed to get everybody talking about F1 at the quietest time of the year

    Off topic: comment about episode 84.

    Christine and Me were discussing how Renault were changing several paramaters at the same time in their testing and made the comment that it was not "scientific." As a scientist, I must disagree. Changing one variable at a time is one way to test systems, but not the only way. In a F1 car, I bet DOE (design of experiments) is commonly used. DOE is a methodology by which several factors are changed simultaneously in order to better understand how the performance space (in several dimensions) is influenced by several orthogonal factors. When properly used, DOE provides far more information about a system than does changing one factor at a time.

    Here's a good link if you would like to learn more: http://www.itl.nist.gov/div898/handbook/pri/section1/pri12.htm

    i have just been informed christine made a quiz. this isn't a sidepodquiz. and possibly i'm in a lot of trouble for not being aware of it sooner.

    however, if you find yourself with a minute or two to spare:

    nope and not 'floating tools' either.

    Given that:

    - You get fined £80 for dropping a cigarette on the pavement in the UK (or similarly-sized item of litter)

    - A cigarette weighs 1.5 grammes

    - The UK covers 94600 sq mi, which is 0.187% of the Earth's surface (50409497.819 sq mi)

    Then:

    - Assuming that none of it was burned up by the atmosphere (which would seriously complicate matters, as it is unclear which country's littering law would apply and to what proportion)

    - Also assuming the effects of gravity were considered when the weight of the rubbish was quoted,

    - 30.45 tonnes would fall on the UK

    - If the average "bit" is the weight of a cigarette end, then that would be 45675 separate littering offences

    - This would lead to the UK police sending NASA a bill for £3.654m.

    This doesn't count the bill from other countries which ban littering.

    Probably cheaper to take it all home and recycle/landfill it the normal way, then...

    8 in both.

    I'd like to make a complaint, you said Robert Kubica finished the Chinese Grand Prix in 12th, however, he finished 6th, he had qualified 12th, not finished the race in 12th.

    I demand an extra point :(

  • R.G (Undergoing secret missions to bring Buemi and Sato to STR)26/11/2008 at 22:16

    Part 2, would be 7 if I'm right. Where did Kubica finish?

    It's an average of both (and I think I may have calculated it incorrectly, since I got 80% on the first one and 70% on the second one).

  • Dom26/11/2008 at 22:20

    By the way, I've found out Sidepodcast gets everywhere (as if I shouldn't have known already).

    There I was, reading through Force Fans Online, which I've recently become admin of, when all of a sudden I see one of my fellow forumites ask, "Are you the same Alianora that gets mentioned occasionally on Sidepodcast?" It was quite amusing :D

    Wikipedia says he qualified 12th and the BMW Sauber official site says 11th.

    Oh, didn't someone get a 5/10 place grid drop?

  • Dom26/11/2008 at 22:22

    And what is the penalty for littering in Malaysia/Singapore again? (spitting out chewing gum? something like 200 lashes with a cane?)

    In other, non-eyespy related news (and I'm really sorry for dragging the site down with F1 related news here),

    "Autosport.com understands that Toro Rosso are leaning towards Sebastien Buemi and Takuma Sato as their line-up for next season."

    you’re an admin now? well done you :) {me - 85 comments ago}

    Well... ...I've been a co-admin at Formula 1 Home since mid-2006 (and still am), but this is the first time I've been principal admin anywhere.

  • lou26/11/2008 at 23:56

    now i know what it is

    you make it sound like you didn't know before :P

  • me26/11/2008 at 23:56

    you make it sound like you didn’t know before

    :D

    might've missed a comma.

  • Steven Roy26/11/2008 at 23:57

    what’s a fluke?

    It's a bit of a whale. Something to do with the tail.

    fingers?

    beginning with f?... erm formula 1? font?

    i feel a little silly that i don't know...it's one of those things that's sooo easy it's really difficult....

  • Alianora La Canta26/11/2008 at 23:58

    Fonts?

  • lou26/11/2008 at 23:58

    erm... feeds?

    Feeds?

  • me26/11/2008 at 23:59

    clever, but if they get that on the iss, i will eat my cap.

  • me27/11/2008 at 00:00

    Feeds?

    it's not geeky.

  • Alianora La Canta27/11/2008 at 00:01

  • Dom27/11/2008 at 00:02

    Err...

    Formatting?

  • me27/11/2008 at 00:02

    Fonts?

    more obvious than that.

    Finances?

    something physical.

  • me27/11/2008 at 00:03

    Formatting?

    it's object. normally you can hold it / them. you might struggle with the one the spacemen are looking at though.

  • Steven Roy27/11/2008 at 00:03

    frog?

  • lou27/11/2008 at 00:03

  • Dave in NZL27/11/2008 at 00:04

    inside the ISS?

  • me27/11/2008 at 00:04

    frog?

    they have frogs?

  • me27/11/2008 at 00:05

    inside the ISS?

    can't say for sure. i would expect so, but i haven't spotted one.

    i know there is one, and maybe a second outside.

  • me27/11/2008 at 00:06

    Files?

    it is not a living thing.

  • Steven Roy27/11/2008 at 00:06

    they have frogs?

    No that's why they would have difficulty holding it. Clever huh?

  • Jolly27/11/2008 at 00:06

    How else do they prepare for Fantasy Racers?

  • Dave in NZL27/11/2008 at 00:07

    so. these f’s are not necessarily related to space - you see them everyday. but without it / them, the mission would hold less significance.

    flags?

  • lou27/11/2008 at 00:08

    fan? but i suppose there isn't one staring me in the face...

  • me27/11/2008 at 00:08

    No that’s why they would have difficulty holding it. Clever huh?

    yes, but again overestimating my intelligence.

  • me27/11/2008 at 00:09

    flags?

    w00t!

  • me27/11/2008 at 00:09

    dave in nzl, i believe it is your turn.

  • Dom27/11/2008 at 00:10

    w00t!

    Is that it?!?

  • me27/11/2008 at 00:10

    Is that it?!?

    yes.

  • lou27/11/2008 at 00:10

    w00t!.

    Flags?! ..... where are flags staring me in the face?

  • me27/11/2008 at 00:11

    Is that it?!?

    specifically one flag, the big one on the wing.

  • lou27/11/2008 at 00:11

    specifically one flag, the big one on the wing.

    oooo that's clever!!

  • Dom27/11/2008 at 00:11

    yes.

    I see no flags.

  • me27/11/2008 at 00:11

    Flags?! ….. where are flags staring me in the face?

    look at the blog posts. what discussion did i just have with jolly about?

    countries / people on the iss.

  • Dave in NZL27/11/2008 at 00:12

    All right - eye spy with my little eye something beginning with 'R'. I've have seen it in a photo, so I know there is one on board.

  • me27/11/2008 at 00:13

    I see no flags.

    blog title - where are we still coming from?

  • lou27/11/2008 at 00:13

    btw.. i can't seem to 'click quote' any text that is in bold, e.g your 'w00t!'

  • me27/11/2008 at 00:13

    oooo that’s clever!!

    i think there's one on the moon too, but lord knows if they can see it.

  • Dave in NZL27/11/2008 at 00:13

    Actually, wikipedia says that it starts with T. The word starting with R is what we call them.

  • me27/11/2008 at 00:13

    btw.. i can’t seem to ‘click quote’ any text that is in bold, e.g your ‘w00t!’

    tis okay, doesn't work with italics either. it's on me list.

    Damn those charity people get everywhere

  • me27/11/2008 at 00:14

    huh? cryptic.

  • Dom27/11/2008 at 00:14

    the space people may be able to see more than one of these f’s.

    yes. and not that far removed from the sport we know and (mostly) love.

    so. these f’s are not necessarily related to space - you see them everyday. but without it / them, the mission would hold less significance.

    it’s object. normally you can hold it / them. you might struggle with the one the spacemen are looking at though.

    Oh yeah, that does make sense... :P

  • Steven Roy27/11/2008 at 00:15

    w00t!

    I can quote the bold w00t! It just doesn't come out bold

  • me27/11/2008 at 00:15

    Oh yeah, that does make sense…

    i was questioning my sanity for a bit there :)

  • lou27/11/2008 at 00:16

    look at the blog posts. what discussion did i just have with jolly about?

    i see... oh ok, not that obvious then. very clever though. i'll put it on the wiki list

  • me27/11/2008 at 00:17

    i see… oh ok, not that obvious then. very clever though. i’ll put it on the wiki list

    on the realtime thing it was more obvious. in one comment it said "give me a clue" and right above it said "Perhaps none refers to those living on the international space station?".

  • me27/11/2008 at 00:18

    Actually, wikipedia says that it starts with T. The word starting with R is what we call them.

    radar?

  • lou27/11/2008 at 00:20

    to me... that isn't that obvious :P well done to Dave in NZL :) awesome guess.

  • Dave in NZL27/11/2008 at 00:20

    radar?

    No. And my elite google skills say the UK calls them both T or R.

  • me27/11/2008 at 00:21

    to me… that isn’t that obvious well done to Dave in NZL awesome guess.

    i should've taken a screenshot. it was like jolly answered your question, except on another thread and in relation to a different conversation.

  • Dave in NZL27/11/2008 at 00:21

    well done to Dave in NZL awesome guess.

    Thanks. I was googling for 'inside the ISS' and there were a string of flags in one of the images.

  • lou27/11/2008 at 00:22

    ahhh lol :D

  • me27/11/2008 at 00:24

    rivets.

  • Steven Roy27/11/2008 at 00:25

    rocket?

  • Dave in NZL27/11/2008 at 00:26

    rocket?

    rivets.

    No. - And I haven't yet got the hang of this multi-quote thing...

  • me27/11/2008 at 00:28

    No. - And I haven’t yet got the hang of this multi-quote thing…

    radio.

  • Dave in NZL27/11/2008 at 00:30

    radio/transistor - I like it, but no.

  • me27/11/2008 at 00:31

    radio/transistor - I like it, but no.

    are you sure?

    ;)

  • me27/11/2008 at 00:36

    radio/transistor - I like it, but no.

    rudder / tail?

  • Dave in NZL27/11/2008 at 00:38

    rudder / tail?

    No. And I'm sure about liking the radio/transistor guess, too.

  • Alianora La Canta27/11/2008 at 00:45

    thruster/rocket?

  • Dave in NZL27/11/2008 at 00:47

    thruster/rocket?

    No - good guess though, the 2 letters could end up being a gift or a curse!

    Let's go to the new thread for the 27th (which it has been here for almost 14 hours already...). Does that mean I get my F1 news a day early?

  • lou27/11/2008 at 00:48

    wow..... am listening to the Chris Evans show from today on Radio 2 in bbc iplayer (cause someone told me to) and they were discussing F1... and Bernie (quiet a bit), and how he really should know better (regarding the new proposed medal system). I'm pretty sure they wouldn't have been discussing that a year ago.. Lewis being champ really has boasted people's interest f1... wow.

  • me27/11/2008 at 00:49

    Lewis being champ really has boasted people’s interest f1… wow.

    that and the fact bbc have the rights now.

  • lou27/11/2008 at 00:56

    yeah i suppose... what made me laugh was that it the presenter commented on the sport news, discussed Bernie and how much of an awful idea it is, and then asked for song suggestions they should play for Bernie, and other people that should know better. My favourite was 'should i stay or should i go' XD

  • me27/11/2008 at 00:57

    My guess is he should go. Am I right?

  • lou27/11/2008 at 01:07

    My guess is he should go. Am I right?

    if he is gonna insist on stupid changes to f1 like medals... then yeah i so...

  • Dave in NZL27/11/2008 at 01:25

    Yeah, but then who would be the 'comely old man' that young children will run to, that women will swoon over, that men want to be like?

    Not Max - he's queer as eggs. Flavio? He'd get my vote. Although Renault would go straight to the dogs without him, IMHO.
