Hello once again to all visiting the wonderful world of Sidepodcast as we enter another Friday. I'm totally not getting deja vu writing my Friday posts up I swear. But it's always a pleasure to bring you guys into the last day of the week and guide you into the weekend. We're getting some glorious weather in the UK right now so I hope you're having a great time wherever you are! Now onto my favourite part of writing a daily - those lovable scamps, the bullet points.

  • Yesterday James mentioned how Red Bull need to draw a line under their Water-crash Scandal. (See ManipeF1 for more on the Water- tag). Guess what? They did indeed draw a line under it! Good times were had by all in this line drawing activity clearly. I think we've heard enough from this story now though if I'm honest, as crazy as it was. Let's draw a line under drawing a line. Although both Webber and Vettel looked just as confused as we all did by this picture Red Bull released. Yeah, I haven't a clue either guys.
  • If you're going to do one thing Sidepodcast related today, make sure you check out the mini Sidepodchat released yesterday including several commentors such as myself and Mr C discussing the Force India/Lotus wrestling match. That's not a good choice of words in retrospect as I seriously do not want to see Tony Fernandes and Vijay Mallyah settle this in a Rage in the Cage Match. Let's just have a civil affair and listen to this 10 minutes of podcasting bliss. Hope you guys enjoy it because it was a blast to contribute to! Remember if you have any feedback, Sidepodcast are more than happy to hear as to how this format can be improved or altered. For me I love the short bursts of discussion, so fingers crossed more appear soon!
  • This evening writing this wondering what songs could replace The Chain as a Formula 1 intro. Now I adore The Chain, I really don't want it to go and it isn't - don't start any GMM rumours! I'm just considering, don't shout at me! A few years ago Sony Liverpool used Butterflies and Hurricanes by Muse as an F1 game intro and it worked quite well I reckon. Although for me I'd like 21st Century Crooner by Ghinzu as an intro. That, or 99 Luftballons of course. Ahem. What songs do you guys think would work as an F1 intro?
  • Many commentors from Sidepodcast have fantastic F1 related blogs you may not know about - Leigh O'Gorman's blog The Formula 1 and Motorsport Archive is definitely worth a look, with his most recent post looking at the legendary Bruce Mclaren. Pat W's been providing some useful times from the motorsport world on Too Much Racing for the coming weekend. Another plug approaching - Jon Waldock posted an awesome podcast interviewing a certain Allan McNish on the Feeder Series last night - how awesome is that?! Finally, An F1 Blog (I love that name) is asking people to design their own dream livery, something I'm totally intrigued by to say the least from my own ideas but even more so by everyone else's ideas! There are plenty more out there so remember to ask us in the comments for more fantastic F1 blogs!
  • On a more personal level, I've been reading a few entries here and there outside of F1 - Christine has been discussing the recent "Re-blog" addition to Wordpress blogs. To me, doing this in a Daily Post could be considered a 'reblog', so I am unsure on Wordpress' idea so make sure you head over and give your own view on this new addition. I myself have been blogging this week, as I've given into Gavin and Stacey and began watching it from the start. I know, I know. With the World Cup just a week away (WOOHOOO!!!!!) RG has joined many footballers in ranting at the new ball being used at the finals. See, for me, I just kick it and fail miserably so it sounds like the perfect ball for me.

So, thats another Friday daily done for me. So many plugs today but I wanted to give you guys plenty of content to keep you happy as, in just 4 weeks time, the Goodwood Festival of Speed returns and I am really very excited for it! 3 weeks today also marks the day I get my degree results and see what I'm graduating with, so whilst excited for Goodwood, I am equally nervous. Nevertheless, that is then and this is now so I shll see you all right in those comments below me! I'll leave you with this utterly adorable clip. Awwwwwwwww.

    I am sure last year we did quali and the race. Not sure if quali was a breakout though

  • RG03/06/2010 at 23:16

  • Jon Waldock03/06/2010 at 23:18

    I'm struggling to convert my levelator file back to mp3 :( boo

    Blast Ryan Giggs was never given the nickname RG. Could've been a stressful Worlhahahahahahahaa,

    Sorry, for a moment there I was going to present the idea of Wales being in a World Cup. Very hard to keep a straight face.

  • Pat W03/06/2010 at 23:18

    do we need qually threads too? i have time to watch i think.

    If there is sufficent interest, which there could be. Lots of former F1 drivers in the mix.

  • lou03/06/2010 at 23:19

    i can't stop watching cute videos of cats!!

  • Jon Waldock03/06/2010 at 23:19

    If there is sufficent interest, which there could be. Lots of former F1 drivers in the mix.

    Quali is over 2 days in 3 x 2 hour sessions, i think a quali thread would be good

  • Steven Roy03/06/2010 at 23:19

    do we need qually threads too? i have time to watch i think.

    I think it is worth putting a thread up for first quali to see what the response is like

  • me03/06/2010 at 23:19

    If there is sufficent interest, which there could be. Lots of former F1 drivers in the mix.

    am happy to write the race threads, i have enough info i think to put them together. anyone fancy explaining qually format (twice)?

  • me03/06/2010 at 23:20

    Quali is over 2 days in 3 x 2 hour sessions, i think a quali thread would be good

    single thread for both? or one each?

  • Jon Waldock03/06/2010 at 23:20

    One for all should do id imagine

    I think its a case of fastest lap wins, but clearly weather is different in each session etc etc, so they have to push in each session

  • lou03/06/2010 at 23:22

    next question then. how does the world cup work? is it on every day, cause that might be an issue?

  • Pat W03/06/2010 at 23:24

    ta, i'll pencil you in if that's okay? i have pics i think. just no knowledge :)

    Yep no problem. It's fairly straightforward, just long.

  • Jon Waldock03/06/2010 at 23:24

    its gonna suck majorly

    More or less, apart from towards the end of the tournament to give the teams a rest.

    Group stages last a week-ish, leads straight into the 2nd round, leads straight into the quater finals, break till the semi finals, then break till final

  • lou03/06/2010 at 23:25

    every day? seriously?..

  • me03/06/2010 at 23:25

    its gonna suck majorly

    hence the plan to bounce comments into a special thread... or 14.

  • Pat W03/06/2010 at 23:25

    Yep no problem. It's fairly straightforward, just long.

    I mean qualifying is quite long, but the post should be quite short as there isn't much to it... Can't make English work any more.

    Should be able to keep the post short and simple.

    what do you think would work best. i can see the need to keep comments out of the daily, but that is a lot of posts, isn't it?

  • Steven Roy03/06/2010 at 23:27

    every day? seriously?..

    Yes. Great isn't it?

  • RG03/06/2010 at 23:27

  • Jon Waldock03/06/2010 at 23:27

    what do you think would work best. i can see the need to keep comments out of the daily, but that is a lot of posts, isn't it?

    you could just do one each time you get too many comments?

  • me03/06/2010 at 23:27

    Yes. Great isn't it?

    am kinda excited by it. which is odd.

  • lou03/06/2010 at 23:27

    Yes. Great isn't it?

    you mean lukeh is going to be busy watching football every evening for weeks?!

  • Pat W03/06/2010 at 23:27

    I think there's the potential for people to jump into the Daily and start talking about it without checking, so we'll all have to be quite vigilant. A thread per day could be excessive though..

  • lou03/06/2010 at 23:27

    are you sure you are mr c?

    sounds good.... am guessing 8? i'd be happy to write a post or two, but the content may not contain any facts.

  • Steven Roy03/06/2010 at 23:28

    Then you and Christine could do a round up later in the year of the 'other sports' you've been watching. Relate it to F1 if you see any ideas in the coverage.

    #sidepodspace

    Some of you may remember on the space show I did for sidepodradio there was some discussion on the space rock that no-one ever saw that his Jupiter and left a black mark. NASA has issued some photos showing how the planet has healed itself. One thing however caught my eye. Mr C and I were trying to figure out live how big an area was affected due to my lack of planning. We suggested NZ size but due to Jupiter being so big it was probably more like Australia. Apparently the affected area was actually the size of the Pacific Ocean so I am very happy it hit Jupiter and not us.

    Beats me. You used to always see the rear of the grid form up on TV but it used to take a very long time from the poleman arriving on the grid and the race starting. The whole procedure is so slick now you miss things like this.

    Last time I had the repeated problem of links that did not close when I did the HTML manually, you suggested using the link button.

    normally we just say, paste a link in raw, with no tags. then site then turns it into a clickable link. so i copy the url above and paste it:

    Thanks again for the plug in the daily the other day. I even got a few comments on that article.

    Guest posts? Love the idea but I worry about updating my blog reasonably regularly and keep writing these articles that require far too much research. I started an article on the history of the USA GP and the topicality is receding. It might be finished by the time they run it.

    your latest is relevant to the next aside show, so i'll squeeze a link in there (hopefully tomorrow).

    always a problem. you could've split your ferrari post into two or three parts, if that helps? that way you get fresh content and give yourself time to research.

    I need to have shorter ideas. I write longer posts than Alianora. Actually, I once wrote a comment on a post of hers that was only marginally shorter than the long post.

    I wrote the KERS piece originally thinking to submit it as a guest-post pre-season last year, but got stuck trying to cover voltage conversion issues. But with it being back in the news, I cut that aspect and put in on the blog.

    I received awful news last night - my in-laws are going to get an iPod :(

    Why is that bad?

    Because I am already spending half my time fixing their laptop, printer, internet, mobile phone, camera, DVD Recorder every time I visit...

    Seriously, I gave my niece an old camera a year ago, gave her parents the cable and the CD to install on their PC. They stayed over a couple a weeks ago, and 5 minutes before we were about to leave for a day out, they hand me the camera and ask me to empty it...

    It hadn't been since I gave it to her, and of course being a 10-year old digital camera the software didn't work in Windows 7 and I don't have a CF card reader ... so I spent the next half hour making an ISO out of the CD, installing the software on a Win XP Netbook, then transferring and emptying the pics from the camera :(

  • RubberGoat04/06/2010 at 07:56

    Uh oh, another golfer - http://twitpic.com/1tr96s

    You should see the name of the place where he is golfing ... I giggled like a schoolboy when I saw it :)

  • Amy04/06/2010 at 07:57

    Because I am already spending half my time fixing their laptop, printer, internet, mobile phone, camera, DVD Recorder every time I visit...

    it might be like my mums iPod, which I taught her how to use two years ago and she has never plugged it into the computer since. If she's not trying to put music on it, she can actually handle pressing play and pause.

  • Christine04/06/2010 at 07:57

    i have no idea what it sounded like.. it might be why Lewis was angry after the race though. He must have thought either the team lied to him or Jenson 'rebelled' ... fun times..

    So Jenson actually did what a racing driver ought to do? Nice mind games there - I am sure it was the team who made sure they switched back though ;)

    Please don't let this turn into another Senna-Prost-type rivalry. Especially when it's between two British drivers.

    Hmm. Dunno about that - I think Jenson was just reminding Lewis that he could have taken him - although looking at Red Bull's example I am glad McLaren told them to calm down!

    both of them have been around for years but never done too much, Stosur sort of started a streak last year when she got to the semis, but this year she took out someone who hadn't lost at RG since 2004, the current world number #1 and an ex #1 in a row. Absolute domination. Plus if she won it would do great great great things for Australian tennis so I'm quite excited :D

    His closing comment was...

    "And, irrespective of where he finished in Portugal, Raikkonen remains one of the finest drivers ever to grace the globe.

    Keep the faith."

    And, of course, I will...

    Story on Twitter about Kimi signing up for Citroen Juniors alongside Petter for next year ... apparently a 2 year contract...

    But the official release won't happen until July so I guess I'll have to wait...

    What happens to Ogier? Does he move up to Team A and kick Sordo out? :D

    Hi folks. Just dropping by.

  • RG04/06/2010 at 18:07

    What happens to Ogier? Does he move up to Team A and kick Sordo out? :D

    As soon as I start supporting, he has a good year eh....

    Hey mate.

  • Journeyer04/06/2010 at 18:08

    As soon as I start supporting, he has a good year eh....

    he's gotten a LOT closer to Loeb than Sordo ever has in the same car... and they're not even teammates yet!

  • Alison04/06/2010 at 18:09

    Interesting question, that. It does mention that it would be a 3-car team if it happens. But I suspect Citroen wouldn't mind dropping Sordo if it meant they could keep Ogier and Raikkonen on their books and get Solberg on board too.

    And with that line-up Ford may as well stay at home..

    No as the senior team has vitually said they will run three cars next year... Seb Marks I and II plus Mr Sordo...

    That will mean there are still 5 Citroens...

    Of course this story may just be a load of "Red Bull"...

    Indeed so. It's much more predictable when there's only 2 manufacturers, though.

  • Journeyer04/06/2010 at 18:21

    I'm not expecting them to challenge right away for the title in Year 1, though. But I think it'll give people like Ogier, Sordo, and Solberg options, which can only be a good thing. I'd like to see a field where most or all teams are competitive.

    How can he not cook pasta properly? You boil water, put it in the pan, add pasta, let it boil for as long as it says on the packet. Sieve. Done. ?

    He tried to put spaghetti into cold water on the hob and was surprised when it wouldn't fit in the pan....

    If you put it into water that's already boiling, you just push it and it coils into the pan.

    Between 2 and 4 million depending on the GP I think. Canada, Brazil and Britain are a bit higher.

    Yes - F1 typically attracts 4 million UK viewers, assuming it's on its regular time spot, the circuit is neither reputed for quality or lack of same and the previous race hasn't been a thriller.

    I think treble that watched the Brazil qualifying

    Though that mighta been because it over ran Strictly...

  • RubberGoat04/06/2010 at 20:54

    Ummm... did we not just have a race?

    They have more than one

    Yeah I heard about this the other day, called a Champ-ee-on-ship or something? It's a great idea - have a number of races, score points in each and the guy who scores the most point is declared a champ-ee-on? :D

    I am watching TNT and just lloked up to see some guy with a seriously bent racket on JR's show

  • startledbunny04/06/2010 at 22:17

    This one, but don't worry, I've figured it out thanks to some sneaky "View Selection Source"...

    i've used photobucket, only because i keep flickr for other things.

    me, Spa, ticket... :P

    sorry, the story is that I announced last week that I had made a reservation for a ticket for Spa. I did at some inconvenient time for the European audience (1 AM in Argentina), I think only Amy was awake...

    anyway, today they actually debited the money from my credit card, so now it's official!

    nice

  • startledbunny04/06/2010 at 22:43

    it might be in the podcast.

    oh on the topic of goodwood i learnt something about the countryside today.. you can't talk about goodwood and how awesome it will be, and climb a style in 3/4 length jeans... it will resort in a cut leg :(

  • Steven Roy04/06/2010 at 22:44

    It should be on tnt4 when it is put up.

    which option should i go for for tickets? would general admission be enough?

  • Pat W04/06/2010 at 22:45

    have you SEEN the confirmed guests already for goodwood!! it's going to be epic!

    I haven't seen anything official. I don't usually go two years running but given the level of SPC attendees this year I'm tempted, if I can juggle the money.

  • Pat W04/06/2010 at 22:45

    Is Goodwood the first weekend of July?

  • me04/06/2010 at 22:47

    I don't listen to the podcast..

    you can listen live now instead?

    http://live.twit.tv/

  • startledbunny04/06/2010 at 22:47

    goodwood. spa is not an option i'm afraid :(

  • lou04/06/2010 at 22:47

    Is Goodwood the first weekend of July?

    yes.

  • Pat W04/06/2010 at 22:47

    The mention has been and gone.

    What is it about?

  • me04/06/2010 at 22:48

    goodwood. spa is not an option i'm afraid :(

    always GA at goodwood. no reason to sit down.

  • guille230604/06/2010 at 22:49

    which option should i go for for tickets? would general admission be enough?

    I went for general admission because it gives me more freedom to move around...

    Ok, maybe it being much cheaper than the other tickets may have played a role there... :P

  • Steven Roy04/06/2010 at 22:49

    you can listen live now instead?

    It has finished and they are unlikely to mention startledbunny again

  • RG04/06/2010 at 22:49

    yes.

    Hmm... Pop down to Goodwood for the weekend, stay in London for a few days, go to Cardiff for the speedway.....

    I doubt that will work.

  • Pat W04/06/2010 at 22:49

    goodwood. spa is not an option i'm afraid :(

    If you're there for one day, gen.admin is more than enough, it is barely possible to get around the place in a day. Unless you prefer to stay in one place of course.

  • lou04/06/2010 at 22:49

    always GA at goodwood. no reason to sit down.

    true. too much to do.. plus if you want to watch the hill climb there are plenty of places to watch.

  • lou04/06/2010 at 22:50

    I doubt that will work.

    ah we could make it work

    chichester isn't too far from London..

  • startledbunny04/06/2010 at 22:57

    what time does it start?

  • RG04/06/2010 at 22:58

  • Pat W04/06/2010 at 23:00

    sunday goodwood ticket bought

    what time does it start?

    I think it opens at 9 or earlier? I'm not really sure as I don't usually rock up until 11 or so..

  • lou04/06/2010 at 23:01

    sunday goodwood ticket bought

    what time does it start?

    wohooo!! :D

    erm..... 9ish?.. i'm not really sure. i always end up being there around 10-10:30...

  • lou04/06/2010 at 23:01

    Everything stops at 6 though, so you may want to maximise your time. Staying in the area?

  • startledbunny04/06/2010 at 23:02

    erm..... 9ish?.. i'm not really sure. i always end up being there around 10-10:30...

    means an early start for me then

  • lou04/06/2010 at 23:03

    yeah, it's always an early start for us too.. but not this year! :D

  • Pat W04/06/2010 at 23:03

    Might bung it on the credit card and wipe it off in late July.. I may bring food with me. £5 for a burger is a bit much, more for a cheeseburger.. I mean really :)

  • lou04/06/2010 at 23:03

    Yeah.... but you don't have a... an angel.

    :D

  • startledbunny04/06/2010 at 23:04

    no homeward bound afterwards. and yes, i am crazy.

    :( more holiday time though? maybe you could come to Spa?...

  • Alison04/06/2010 at 23:08

    The daft thing is that the date he originally said was a DISASTER is the exact date I'm going to visit him.... Very weird

    perhaps a rethink

  • lou04/06/2010 at 23:11

    perhaps a rethink

    might be worth staying a bit closer to chichester.. i think all the hotels in central chichester are booked, but you could probably find somewhere reasonably close.

  • guille230604/06/2010 at 23:14

    there is always something else to save for...

  • Bert04/06/2010 at 23:15

    That is like 3 Grands Prix in the Trulli Train!

  • Pat W04/06/2010 at 23:15

    If you're mad, well-rested the day before and bring a gallon of Red Bull you may be okay.

    I've done from here to Dundee in a day, similar sort of distance.

    Goodwood does take it out of you mind so you'll need to stay somewhere Saturday, even if it is an hour away

  • RG04/06/2010 at 23:20

    Who? and who is the captain now?

    Micheal Dawson. Gerrard is the new captain I thinks.

  • Pat W04/06/2010 at 23:21

    Remember the queues going into Goodwood will be miles long unless you are there early

    ...or late. :) By 10.30 or 11 the car queue isn't too bad... But I do plan to get there earlier this time and it is a good idea so as not to miss stuff.

  • Steven Roy04/06/2010 at 23:23

    Micheal Dawson. Gerrard is the new captain I thinks.

    How do you explain the England captaincy to non-football fans? John Terry was the captain but he had a relationship with a team mate's girlfriend so they decided he was not suitable. Unfortunately the squad is full of people with unfortunate back stories. Ferdinand was given the job despite having previously being banned for 9 months for missing a drugs test. Steven Gerrard who should have been the obvious candidate to take over thumped a bar manager live on cctv.
