Hello! RG here and as today’s first ever guest writer for the Daily, I believe it is my duty to welcome you to the weekend. For me, I am delighted it is the weekend, having spent the past day and a bit stuck in bed feeling ill. Not ideal, but yesterday saw some awesome news to keep me happy.

  • The brilliant ‘Tonio Liuzzi was confirmed at Force India alongside Adrian Sutil. Fantastic news there, Force India managing to keep two decent drivers and with more testing for him, I do think Liuzzi will go out in 2010 and score a few good results. Especially since he is awesome.
  • Then there is the news of Montreal being confirmed for the 2010 season. Brilliant. One of my favourite tracks on the F1 calendar returns. Of course, that is where BMW Sauber scored their one and only victory in 2008. All we need now is a race in the USA and to get rid of a few other circuits. I am looking at Valencia and Abu Dhabi for starters.
  • So to top that off, there will have to be something really special. That something special came in the form of BMW selling the team back to Peter Sauber. To a lifelong fan of the team, this is simply the best news ever and has kept a smile on my face. Of course it is with conditions, but I am certain Sauber will be on the grid next season. Can’t wait to have Sauber next year, perhaps a return to the popular blue liveries? I have my fingers crossed.

Of course, I won’t go away without some plugs. My Timo Glock dedicated blog at Only One Timo Glock and my general blog The Northern Waffler. Do also check out one of the ten kazillion posts that were wrote yesterday, a personal favourite of mine being Predictions Revisited, showing how many of us were wrong more or less this time last year. Have a fun Saturday!

Oh, nearly forgot to mention, it is the birthday of a certain Rob Smedley.

    He's not following Rubens to Williams?

    Good article from Joe about the legal possibilities of Stefan GP to take over Toyota's entry.

    ah well...Jock's a bit rubbish anyways

  • lou28/11/2009 at 00:10

    dunno.. it's on the brawn site.. and it still has jenson etc on it, so i assume it will change or a new website will appear next year?

  • Pat W28/11/2009 at 00:11

    ah well...Jock's a bit rubbish anyways

    agreed. plus the only other guy he ever followed was JV

  • Lukeh28/11/2009 at 00:12

    I think we should enter this race by watching that epic race from Jonathon Ross

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W9Cmz8gKO4o

    Silly Youtube taking ages to sort the quality. There's a naughty word in there too just to warn.

    He probably won't. He's been there since he followed Jacques to BAR.

    Has anyone heard of this Lockerz.com site? Something about answering questions and playing games which earn you points which you can spend on things like iPods, games consoles, etc, and they DO send them to you. Apparently, this isn't a scam, it is legal and there are many unboxing videos of prizes from Lockerz.

    But you can't just register an account. You have to be invited by someone which gives you a combination to put in along with your e-mail.

    Reading back through the predictions thread from last year I found a reference to one of the Friday night games we played. Haven't had one of those in a very long time. Just as well Lou is not competitive or she would be trying to beat last year's highest scores.

    Atari have put some classic games on their website, namely Asteroids.

    When will Activision put Kaboom! on their site?

    More to the point - you know these classic PS1 games you can get from the PlayStation network? I want them to put Ridge Racer Type 4 on there! Loved that game when I had it, especially the music. For me, best video game music ever. A brilliant mix of acid jazz, funk and breakbeat mixed in with Namco synth pieces. Ab-so-lutely awesome :D

    it was really, my team leader is leaving and he said 'we don't have anything work related to discuss' so we went to the pub. And I am a lightweight so got a little drunk really, really quickly.

  • Steven Roy28/11/2009 at 02:49

    Don't get drunk at a meeting. That could get you fired

  • me28/11/2009 at 02:50

    And I am a lightweight so got a little drunk really, really quickly.

    i can help with that too. drink more, more frequently.

    if you don't put in the work, you'll never enjoy the game.

    all your talk of starbucks and things last night makes me think I should head out and get a gingerbread latte. I havent been to starbucks in about 3 years, but people keep telling me the gingerbread lattes are life changingly amazing.

    am trying to think of an #mfc way to consume starbucks, but it's just drinking coffee.

  • Amy28/11/2009 at 03:05

    am trying to think of an #mfc way to consume starbucks, but it's just drinking coffee.

    and you're not into christmas so the gingerbread latte probably doesn't sell it to you. There's also a caramel brulee latte, apparently.

  • Amy28/11/2009 at 03:07

    oh, there is no starbucks in Finland.

    that is acceptable. I am sure they still have coffee.

  • Kathi28/11/2009 at 03:13

    yep. 12 kilo per person per year. that's 2 kilos more than Norway who have the second highest coffee consumption per capita in Europe.

  • Amy28/11/2009 at 03:27

    yes and some others

    I discovered that they sell Monster here, which I didn't know. And I decided not to buy it simply because I don't like their sponsorship of Jenson. That, and I don't like energy drinks.

  • me28/11/2009 at 03:28

    wow!

  • Kathi28/11/2009 at 03:34

    I know mad croc because they sponsor Mika and I think Heikki occasionally. And battery because they are the most famous. But I've never tried any.

    Many thanks James...

    Here goes... sorry if it's a bit long...

    Verse 1

    Running fast and low

    In a sponsor-less machine

    No-hopers have the glow

    Of winners not has-beens

    Who’d have thought the Brawn

    Could beat the big grandees

    No-one thought when they were born

    That nightmares turn to dreams

    Chorus:

    Jenson wins, Ross Brawn grins

    Champions all the way

    But big Ron comes a calling

    And steals the “1” away

    Merc are cross, at their loss

    Though Rosberg’s on the way

    Norbert works a big surprise

    And signs Nelson Piquet

    Verse 2

    Lewis looking down

    Doesn’t like the “2”

    Makes damn sure the car

    Puts Jenson in the poo

    Anthony will smile

    John Button getting cross

    War will break out in the pits

    And Macca lose their gloss

    Jenson wins etc...

    Verse 3

    Silver arrows team

    Just can’t win a lot

    But off the track it’s clear

    They’re seen as very hot

    Call in Simon Cowell

    To help Norbs with a plan

    To make back his investment by

    The Jnr/Nico band

    Jenson wins etc

    That's it...

    Something's a tad wrong as I haven't mentioned Kimi....

  • Pat W28/11/2009 at 13:24

    And I am a lightweight so got a little drunk really, really quickly.

    i can help with that too. drink more, more frequently.

    if you don't put in the work, you'll never enjoy the game.

    I agree.

    There were complaints in our local newspaper when a Costa Coffee opened in our little town. "How dare they! They'll take trade from our local coffee shops. We don't want our town looking like all the others."

    It opened. It's fine. It's much better than the boarded up windows of the failed bar who's premises it occupies.

    Good choice :D

    Beebplayer is a must have

    Barcode reader is good, wheter you actualy use it or just amuse yourself with it :D

    wikitude is fun to play with

    Compass is quite handy

    Flashlight is really silly and looks pointless (it just turns the whole screen bight white) but i have found it quite handy

    Another tip would be to have bookmark shortcuts on one of your homescreens, its much better than using the HTC widget ;)

    something different for your saturday. i haven't heard it yet, shall listen now.

  • Rich28/11/2009 at 15:14

    Before F1 goes to far in their cost reductions and trying to get everyone to have Cosworth engines they should look at the disaster that Moto 2 (250 series of MotoCycle Racing) is.

    "Moto2, where bikes will use 600cc engines, replaces the 250cc category.

    All bikes will have to use Honda engines and Dunlop tyres."

    Aprilia has withdrawn despite having had six bikes in the top ten in last year's championship and supplied bikes to the majority of the field.

    Their statement goes

    "Therefore the Group feels it unnecessary and damaging for the image of a great Italian and European motorcycle manufacturer - who has won 43 world titles in road racing and off-road - to take part in competitions forcibly centered around the engine technology of a rival constructor."

    Oh, nearly forgot to mention, it is the birthday of a certain Rob Smedley. {Original entry}

    Happy birthday Rob!

    I am celebrating by re-reading the interview he gave Autosport last week (he also did one for F1 Racing but I think the Autosport one is better).

  • Scott Woodwiss28/11/2009 at 15:53

    Oh shoot, I just remember I still haven't re-paid the deposit for Ali's karting event in January! Ali, would you mind sending an invoice now so I can get it done? :)

  • Alianora La Canta28/11/2009 at 16:03

    When I moved to Melbourne there was one on every corner and then they seemed to realise that was ridiculous and they shut 80% of them. Now they're quite hard to find.

    am trying to think of an #mfc way to consume starbucks, but it's just drinking coffee. {Comment #132}

    My nearest Starbucks is 20 miles away, though there are a number of smaller chains in my hometown.

    #mfc way of consuming Starbucks: get it made from the comfort of your own home via the Hyper Text Coffee Pot Control Protocol. Originally it was an April Fool's joke, but the write-up was so detailed that there have been attempts to make it a real protocol. It hasn't been made compatible with Firefox, for example, so a genius programmer will be needed to take the concept mainstream, but after that...

    Though since I don't like tea or coffee, even that wouldn't sell a Starbucks coffee to me!

    Will do! There's still time :) And by the way, the amount on the invoice is the full fee, not the deposit...

    Think of them as telling a story in numbers rather than words...

    I had to visit 10 tube stations (that were picked out for me) in a certain order...

    However i got there at 12 and realised that i wouldnt be able to get round them and have a fair crack at the trade show i'd gone up for, so i went there first and did that then did the other stations, but i couldnt do Westminster as the District, Circle and part of the Jubilee lines were closed, and as my camera wouldnt work (not enough phone battery) by that point, there wasnt a great deal of point in walking

    Evening all.

    I'm just waiting for my train home which isn't for another half an hour. I haven't been home because I had a Christmas party last night and a dinner party tonight. Christmas party was great - was drinking until 3am and got way too drunk. So I spent today nursing a hangover at my mates house where I stayed. We went for a bike ride and he made rotis with fried chick peas which were a brilliant hangover cure. Then we went to another friends house and he made Paella for us. Excellent stuff!

    I hear something happened to Lukeh. I hope you're ok dude!

  • lou28/11/2009 at 22:32

    you have an underscore in your name! Boo, thats why

    ohh.. sorry.. i wouldn't have picked it up anyway.. text messages are the only way to contact me while i'm out and about most of the time..

    Yes. The name that goes on the entry computer will be the one I expect to be used in any reference to that individual when discussing the event. I will also prevail on people to not post pictures of people who want their anonymity respected on the internet and hope everyone gets the message this time.

    Perhaps a cheap assortment of masks might be useful...

    was just checking the site and provisional dates are 2-4 July.

    The theme has been announced too - 'Viva Veloce! – The Passion for Speed'

    his theme celebrates Italy’s all-consuming fascination with motor racing, and its global influence on the sport. From Alfa Romeo to MV Agusta, Ascari to Agostini, and Monza to the Mille Miglia, Italians have raced with breathtaking fervour, inspiring desire and devotion that transcends national identity.

  • Alianora La Canta28/11/2009 at 22:59

    I didn't see the organisers demand passports or anything last time, so I would guess that a suitably mature-looking 17-year-old might be able to sneak in. However that would be disrespectful to the organisers and risks the lot of us being thrown out if we were caught doing it.

    I should explain 12-18-year-olds and under-16s can also compete at the track, but only in their own age categories, not mixed. I think there are safety reasons involved. And yes, there is overlap.

    I should emphasise that there is no age limit on spectating.

    i forget the story, but given the tools at the time it was damn close. gps puts it further away under the nearest hedge i believe.

    i should google it really.

    I am seeing if rFactor works with my upgraded PC. I don't have a wheel but I want to see if it looks any better.

    an improvement!

    if your PC is old I would suggest you take a look at iRacing - it's a lot better use of the system resources...

    how much?

  • lou29/11/2009 at 00:03

    mercedes?? noo.. he does these things occasionally. during the summer he did alot of cycling in a group in monaco. he loves Lanzarote so.. maybe a group decided to go out and do something like that?

    okay.... Tri Ichban was the name of his tri team for the london tri.. there was a group of them.. RGActive is just something i've picked up from Twitter, but he looked like he was training Jenson and a group of them this summer...
