Hello there, it's Christine again, I'm filling in for a rather under the weather Alex, and I'm sure you'll join me in wishing him better. I'm not going to do this daily in rhyme, because that took quite a long time, but I still have plenty that you need to know about.

First up, brand new writer Rory has given us a brilliant review of the new Senna movie. It's a really excellent summary of what is right and what is wrong with the film, most of it being right. In fact, as excellent as the review is, all it's really done is make us want to see the movie NOW. June is far too far away.

We're not the only ones who appreciate Rory's words, as the writer of the film tweeted:

@sidepodcast @asifkapadia & I are lost for words after this review ( http://sidepodcast.com/post/the-senna-movie-they-nailed-it ) Thank you

Last night, Mr C and I hurriedly put the studio back together amidst the drying paint so that we could record a brand new Sidepodchat with Naoise from Manipe F1. I'll be editing the podcast this very day, so look for it to be published later on. It was great fun to chat, and I think we'll be hearing more from Manipe in the future.

Whilst I'm talking about things that are yet to happen, this evening sees Jake Humphrey and friends take over BBC Radio 5live for an F1 season preview. It starts at 8pm GMT and what do you know, the Factbyte Factbox will be listening in. Hope you can join us and Jake, it sounds like a great way to get March off to a good start.

Back to the paddock, the official F1 website published a video capturing pretty much all the current drivers at a recent test wishing Robert Kubica all the best. It's a great video giving a glimpse into all the different personalities we will be watching this year. I know I'm selecting some favourites already, how about you?

Sutton Images have also been thinking about testing, and have selected their best images from the recent pre-season stuff. There's something for everyone in there, including Pastor Maldonado struggling to keep control of the car, Rob and Massa having a heart to heart, and some McLaren staff looking for souvenirs.

Finally, David Croft has been arguing in the pub with a friend. I think these things usually end up with silly bets being made, although that may be because I have ready too much Danny Wallace and Dave Gorman. Our Crofty, though, he was talking more sporty things, and has a question for you all.

Just having a fab debate with a mate of mine about the biggest hard luck case in F1 past & present. So tweeps what's your fave F1 sob story


CroftyF1's Twitter avatarCroftyF1

Clearly, the answer is Franck, who was robbed, ROBBED I tell you, of a decent opportunity by Toyota. But perhaps you have another idea? Let us know, and let Crofty know too.

Hope you have a fabulous day, hope Alex gets better soon, and I will see you in the comments.

    Heya Kai,

    Jetlag free yet?

  • Kai03/03/2011 at 00:05

    I was just checking out the Sidepod Boston wiki

    http://sidepodcastwiki.com/SidepodBoston

    I don't have a preference for the weekend we choose - the first or last in April. It's more up to you guys coming from far away.

    Just about, just tired from all this work.

    Janna and I are both leaning towards the earlier one, especially as the latter is a public holiday and could make flights a little bit more difficult

    Dear Mr C:

    was there a bigger hard luck case than luca badoer? if not him then, justin wilson, who had to sell shares in himself for a chance to drive a minardi.

    never tried. i guess so. the voicemail would have to be the last number you call.

  • Amy03/03/2011 at 00:51

    money is :(

    Although last night I found an account called '2011 flight and hotel fund' that I forgot I had. Not a lot of money in it but some is better than nothing!

  • Amy03/03/2011 at 00:51

    I'm not sure I want opposite, I want more Spa

    its hot and night time and in the middle of a city and the drivers are accessible and its expensive and theres no beurb.

    those last 2 aren't so great.

  • Bassano03/03/2011 at 00:53

    I'd rather do that too. But Singapore is shiny under lights! It's all they have!

  • Bassano03/03/2011 at 00:57

    I'd rather do that too. But Singapore is shiny under lights! It's all they have!

    I do love Asia but I'd have to tack it onto a holiday either side and getting confirmed tickets is difficult in advance for the price I'm willing to fly at [which is not a lot]

    Now that sales are open I had a sneaky look at the stand I want and it's trying to sell me the front row just like last year. I have the feeling it won't hurt to wait a bit :)

    Not even an overnight stay, is that wise for a 71 year old who passes out on an aircraft?

    Stubborn

  • Kai03/03/2011 at 01:35

  • Alianora La Canta03/03/2011 at 01:36

    Not even an overnight stay, is that wise for a 71 year old who passes out on an aircraft?

    I suppose if the medical people are satisfied that there are no underlying conditions and Jackie is in general good health, they may have concluded that telling him to be a little more careful in future or something might be sufficient.

  • Bassano03/03/2011 at 01:36

    :(

    Motel 6 or similar?

  • Kai03/03/2011 at 01:41

    It's just the nature of staying there. I can manage, though. At least pounds are stronger than dollars for you guys.

    There must be a cheap option, 15 mins from town or something

  • Kai03/03/2011 at 01:45

    There must be a cheap option, 15 mins from town or something

    It's okay for me, I can budget for it, I just hope everyone else will find something doable. Looks like $140 per night is the lowest in the city so far.

    I was thinking of suggesting we pair up for rooms, especially as Janna is keen now

    That makes it more bearable

    I need to check the BA rate too

    It does, but I don't do roommates well. I'd need a room on my own. I hope that doesn't mess up any plans.

  • Bassano03/03/2011 at 01:53

    I need to check the BA rate too

    £80 at the Sheraton Boston. Per room, per night

    4.5 *

    That'll do

  • Bassano03/03/2011 at 01:53

    That'll do

    Can do more than one room I think

  • Bassano03/03/2011 at 01:56

    Can do more than one room I think

    Yup

    Similar price but a pretty good standard

  • Kai03/03/2011 at 01:57

    £80 at the Sheraton Boston. Per room, per night

    It's in a great location, too, kind of near anything. It's a great choice compared to the ones I've looked at. I've always had good luck at Sheratons.

    We'll see what Eric and jpan think.

  • Bassano03/03/2011 at 01:58

    Just having a fab debate with a mate of mine about the biggest hard luck case in F1 past & present. So tweeps what's your fave F1 sob story

    Allan McNish, Tommy Byrne, Mike Thackwell. All of them were good enough to win a pile of GPs and should have had a few championships but not one of them started a race in a competitive car.

    I assume they are not considering drivers who did not reach their potential because of accidents or you would need to add the likes of Johnny Herbert and Martin Donnelly.

    Then there were those like Johnny Dumfries who were very good drivers but were beaten by great drivers (Senna in his case) before people realised the extent of the ability of their team mates.

  • Pat W03/03/2011 at 11:56

    Mark Webber was close to making the list of 'hard luck cases', so much unreliability at Jag and early RBR! Meanwhile Alonso was winning titles in the car Webber could've been driving.

    Then he was nearly ousted from his only ittle chance last year by team owner politics.

    Glad he's proving he's worth keeping.

    He asks for a bit of help on the March 751:

    This bizarre rear wing on the March 751 was designed to smooth out the airflow at the rear of the car and the low side platforms may well have acted similar to a diffuser. That’s all I know about this one I’m afraid, so if anyone has any more information on the reasoning behind it, please tell.

    Does anyone know more about this car?

    Depends how the contract is written. Is the Bahrain GP contracted to a number of years or a number of events?

    If it's the latter, then only the 8th Bahrain GP has been postponed, meaning the contract would last one year longer than originally anticipated.

  • Alianora La Canta03/03/2011 at 14:00

    How could they have a Grand Prix in November and then March anyway? When that happened to Malaysia nobody turned up to the second one...

  • Maverick03/03/2011 at 14:00

    See this wouldn't be a problem if we didn't have so many races.

    If we had a more sensible 15 race calendar that ran from the end of March to Novemeber instead, we could have easily found a spare week when the race could have been fit in.

    It's just a list of favourite different questions - ie. name a song that makes you think of an event, name a song from your childhood etc etc - but obviously rather than just answering elaborating on the answer and chosen song.

    It's not so much that that's making me think about it's the fact it'd be 30 days in a row of very similar content. Whether people would get sick of it as is playing on my mind a bit.

  • CAMikaze03/03/2011 at 20:12

    Saw the comment from Bernie that was tweeted. I was thinking why not have the teams aspiring to compete in F1 be at a track to do the perverbial dippping of their toes in the F1 waters to see if it suits them sort of like what was done back in the '70's. I remember hearing about Roger Penske having a team in F1 for a breif period back then. Maybe something for Joe to discuss in a future 'Aside', perhaps?

    As for # of teams, I'd love to see a full 26 car grid. 13 would be perfect for me. ;)

    Ant: "I'm way too busy to be The Stig... I'm way too tall, too."

    not to mention there's no longer a Australian version of Top Gear.

  • Pat W03/03/2011 at 20:35

    News Lady is very abrupt and doesn't want to be there, how is she not in awe of being sat next to Murray Walker?

    And now Sport Man darts off in a hurry.

    Why is Jake need his iPhone and two screens?

    You can never have enough screens

    i have 4 screens and i'm just watching jake :)

  • Lukeh03/03/2011 at 20:37

    I haven't missed kimi in f1 to be honest. never a huge fan but pleased he's doing pretty good in rallying though.

  • Kate03/03/2011 at 20:37

    Hehe, I've come across Kimi fans who would be howling in rage at what Murray is saying.

    I agree with him personally!

  • Kate03/03/2011 at 20:38

    Good driver but I don't miss him.

  • Pat W03/03/2011 at 20:38

    I miss Kimi. I couldn't care less if he doesn't give great interviews. Most racing drivers don't. He was worth watching on the track more than the vast majority.

  • Lukeh03/03/2011 at 20:39

    Not really. Audi owns Lamborghini

    And this year's tyres will suit him a lot more since the fronts are grippier compared to the rears.

    That should also help Lewis against Jenson

  • CAMikaze03/03/2011 at 21:00

    Ahh batracer good times. Until it got forced to take out the teams :(

    Yeah, sadly. I do still play it though

  • Pat W03/03/2011 at 21:01

    The grip will help but the wear will kill him, Lewis eats tyres

  • Kate03/03/2011 at 21:02

    Am I the only one who doesn't really buy that Lewis and Jenson are friends? I mean they clearly don't hate each other, but the friends thing seems a bit PR.

    Porn Again...why?!?

  • Lukeh03/03/2011 at 21:02

    Well I NEVER thought I'd hear Jake say that.

    I am not so sure about that. He didn't suffer any more wear than Jenson at most races last year

    I can only remember the Moby theme tune. Though I do seem to remember some very blue opening titles at some point.

  • Pat W03/03/2011 at 21:18

    Will anyone be surprised at all if the new pits isn't ready until next year?

    I'd be very surprised because I saw it well under way in September at the LMS race.

    I can only remember the Moby theme tune. Though I do seem to remember some very blue opening titles at some point.

    The first one was in a very dark wind tunnel or something with mechanics. The music went something like DUH-DUH-DUHHHH DUH DUH! over and over with lots of noises and then vrooooooooom

    Pretty technical description that.
