Huhu! Welcome to my first daily of the new F1 season. As you all have noticed by now Sebastian Vettel won the first race ...*yaaaaaaaawn* ... and you also know what else happened from here, here , here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here (copying Thomas Morgenstern ... phi!), here and of course here.

For a non-Vettel fan living in Germany has become really hard. Vettel not only is all over the media, but he is everywhere! Not only in Heppenheim, but genuinely everywhere! *screaming* Today I bumped into him at my chemist, laughing at me with this %§$%$/)=(/( smile I do not like at all. But it got even worse! I found him in my shower too! I assume my flat mates clearly want to make me suffer. Why? Why like this? As if this in 156563483 copies all over the city hasn't been enough???!!! *sigh*

Though if you take a closer look, Seb can't even match - in whatsoever and whatever whenever he might do - with this drop-dead chap. I mean, Seb can only dream of eyebrows like THIS!! ;-)

Errrmmm ... so where there some good news? Ah yes, 38% of German inhabitants say Schumi should retire Only 38%? I'm sure it's propaganda. I'm sure they switched the numbers or something. It should have been 83%, I bet!

While everyone is praising Vitaly Pettrov for his Sunday's performance, let us not forget Paul di Resta who made a super debut, and despite finishing behind his team mate ... what's his name again? .............. ehm ... oh, yes, this Sutil guy ... Paul finished the race and scored his first F1 point.

I feel sorry for the Sauber lads, though. What a fantastic race they've both had! Here you can find a very fine explanation (in Dutch) what was wrong with the Sauber wings and why they got disqualified.

While I am writing this very words Lukeh posted this video on facebook. It's "not available in my area" but I'm sure it is worth watching ( so Lukeh says and he must know, because in his area this video is very much available) so have a look!

There's also something to listen for you all out there produced by our lovely Christine and Mr.C who were very prolific in the recent days to provide all the news not only from the Australian F1 action, but also from some domestic (for them of course), and lovely British rowing action from London. I haven't been able to listen to it yet, however I'm going to fulfill my duty of a good sidepodcaster tomorrow at the gym. You should try the sidepodwork-out yourself. A whale of a time! :-)

Keep an eye on this site 'cause a new and shiny edition of Christine's Rankings is going to turn up here soon, I am sure about that.

There's been also this football thing called the Euro Qualifiers going on recently. Wales played England in Cardiff and lost 0:2. England can survive without the talents of Wayne Rooney, but let's not forget that this England played against very poor (let's be honest) Wales. Prior to that match there was a huge captaincy discussion and John Therry was the man to lead the Tree Lions out on the pitch eventually. After the match Fabio revealed he must look for another captain for the friendly against Ghana on Tuesday. Again. Who could it be? Who should it be? Who has to become the new man waring a piece of cloth on his arm? The speculations arose. Again. And then the BIG news came: Gareth Barry named England Captain for the Ghana friendly. The best option Fabio had, if you ask me. Anyway, you can hear all about this, and much more, in the always excellent Football Weekly podcast.

Oh, and Blackburn want to sign Ruud van Nistelrooy. Frankly, as much I love and respect Ruud, I do not think he'll be able to cope with the English football as he used to. It's not the age - it's Ruud (!), so age isn't an issue - but it's more the injuries he had.

Scenes and more scenes at the Cricket World Cup! There's this captain issue thing going on to ... what's going on with the captains, people? And finally: huge excitement (and more scenes) before the mother of all matches (so they say) and I have also learned a new word: "futile" (Ger.: "nutzlos"; Esp.: "inutil").

And to wrap it all up: it's time for some tennis. :-)

    that is true. I'd hope they'd be nice enough to help a fellow Lotus fan. Because I don't know 127 people :)

    Some actually got a headstart, which I'm not very keen on. But then again, this person doesn't have Sidepodcast behind him...

  • Journeyer29/03/2011 at 01:47

    Since Alison posted it already, I just reposted what she had. :D

  • Amy29/03/2011 at 01:47

    the guy with the headstart has over 800 facebook friends so if hes only posting it on his wall to try and get his friends to like it his conversion rate isnt very good.

  • Bassano29/03/2011 at 01:48

    I think it would help if you tagged yourself

  • Amy29/03/2011 at 03:21

    Tell me about t!

    there seems to be an awful lot of people in the UK who don't want to travel if its anymore than a 1 or 2 hour flight, I'm not meaning on sidepodcast, just UK people I know in general.

    Living in a place where theres nothing else within about 8 hours its an odd mindset for me :D

  • Bassano29/03/2011 at 03:21

    :D Alison, it's not that far from Australia, too. ;) Take Nick with you too! :D

    I have to bring Nick too? Deal's off!

    I really don't see what the issue is, Businness Class is quite comfortable and First is always an option. Bunch of softies I reckon

    I'll have to think about it, I may have no money left. If I get all the tickets I apply for its $1500, flights wil be about $2000 and I don't even want to think about accommodation prices during that period! I'm going to try tack a GP on too if theres on in Europe during that time ;)

    I'll probably end up watching just because the timezone works out alright, its on here between 5pm and midnight. I think I shall go with the UKTV coverage because it's a simulcast of BBC One and I'd rather hear the BBC telling me about it than some Australian journalist :)

    It came from Canada - apparently it was bounced around for a while before it finally arrived

    I sent something to Italy once at Christmas and it came back with 'address unknown'. Funny thing is that before or since they have arrived fine!

  • Journeyer29/03/2011 at 08:04

    first Journeyer gets a twitter for me then you get a Facebook. I'd even be down for a giant sidepodhug if anyone was nearby

    Hahaha! AMAZING. :D

    my friend Kait isn't on Facebook so I've told her to log in as her boyfriend. Sneaky :D

    I trained to Monza station and then walked to the circuit the day I went when the shuttle buses weren't running, but there is a public bus that goes there too.

    If its a big event they might put shuttles on too?

    It's only the F3 / Blancpain Endurance series, so can't imagine them going all out. Will probably need to be there early to get my passes and whatnot.

    Isn't there a train service to Monza from Milan Centrale as well?

  • Amy29/03/2011 at 08:10

    do you mean Monza station or the actual station at the track? During the F1 trains only run to that station on the Sunday, I don't think its part of their normal public transport system.

    Is the Monza station near the circuit?

    So we could set up a million facebook accounts each? This should be easy

    So we could set up a million facebook accounts each? This should be easy

    I used to have another one but its so long since I logged into it it wouldn't let me, and then I couldn't log into the email address to get the reset code they sent me because I haven't used that email address for years, so I gave up.

    its about an hour 20 walk, it's not close!

  • Alex Andronov29/03/2011 at 08:13

    This has made me have to listen to Frank Black. He has a song called Massif Centrale (which is in France rather than Italy but that's just the way my brain works)

    About half way through the song it goes totally amazing: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YzjxI1bEs30

    (This is quite rocky music if you don't know about Frank Black)

  • Leigh O'Gorman29/03/2011 at 08:15

    its about an hour 20 walk, it's not close!

    I'm sure I can sort something - it will be one long morning of travelling though to get to the circuit in time for qualifying.

  • Amy29/03/2011 at 08:16

    yeah theres definitely a bus,I just hate dealing with buses in English so much that I wasn't even going to bother trying to deal with one in Italian :)

    Yep - have to pick up some cursory phrases before I head out. I may also be doing Nurburgring, Paul Ricard and Spa (or at least two of them), so languages would be a bonus.

    It's not the most aggressive flame war ever. You should listen to Another F1 Podcast. It's a couple of Aussies who swear a lot and decided to start a flame war but in the next sentence they decided they like sidepodcast.

    British aren't they?

  • Alianora La Canta29/03/2011 at 10:52

    Chicken shish with lettuce, tomatoes, cucumber's, red cabbage and diced potatoes - all very civil really.

    Oooohh errrr...

    It's hard to be happy with 8ths and 9ths... But if Kimi thought F1 sponsors were demanding, NASCAR is just on another planet.

    That said, Raikkonen vs Montoya in NASCAR would be fun.

    Haven't heard anything about Kimi to NASCAR, although rumours of him doing the Vegas challenge are getting a bit loud

  • Alianora La Canta29/03/2011 at 13:39

    Vegas I can believe (he has no clashing races in WRC). NASCAR? Less so.

  • Mr C29/03/2011 at 13:39

    wow. if kimi goes to nascar i'm watching every race he's in. it'll be like the most awesome years of f1 with him and juan.

  • Pat W29/03/2011 at 13:44

    Assuming that's the report (don't see it on Aspt yet) it could be to get oval experience in time for the IndyCar Vegas race.. and it might not be top level NASCAR.

    On the palm here they have the silliest traffic lights ever, they only have red and yellow lights. When they aren't red they flash yellow, supposedly to be safer than green. But nobody thinks they are traffic lights the first timethey come across them so they go straight through the red...

    At certain times of day (well, late at night/early morning, usually) a lot of intersections in the US will switch to blinking yellow for one road then blinking red for the intersecting road. Mainly if there's very little traffic during that time.

  • Mr C29/03/2011 at 15:57

    Very good stuff... I migrated my old computer to my new computer over the wifi connection... Only took 6 hours!

    i should've done that, but i can't resit a clean install and fresh config files :)

  • jpancoast29/03/2011 at 15:58

    Although, given the choice I prefer console games on disk

    If I had my way I'd like to have the game disc but not have to use it to play the game (like with Blizzard games). Actually, with blizzard games all you need is the serial number and you can download them if your disc gets borked.

  • Alex Andronov29/03/2011 at 15:59

    i should've done that, but i can't resit a clean install and fresh config files :)

    I actually have a very clean system and have hardly any apps installed so this seemed pretty straightforward. Although of course that would have also been an argument for just starting fresh.

    I have to move over the wirecast licence and then I'll be ready... I will need to do a test broadcast at some point to make sure everything is going to work for Sunday.

    Plus:

    McLaren/Button for the Bathurst run if that wasn't in last week's.

    Minus:

    Huge bundles for HRT slowness.

    Karun for crashing at turn 1 lap 1 although I didn't hear if he said anything about it on 5Live so maybe he redeemed it there.

    Trulli for whining about tyres.

    signs that it is the end of the world which such an event. Plenty of space for everyone in my bunker.

    have commented :) It seems my hunch at the weekend that Ferrari and the BBC have fallen out wasn't that far off.

    I think I can trace exactly when that happened...
