It's back to work then, if you weren't already, and now we can start turning our attention to the Spanish Grand Prix. Preview quotes are beginning to emerge from teams, and there's plenty of chatter about what to expect once we get going again in Barcelona. Meanwhile, here's what we're talking about.

  • Having a lovely bank holiday here in the UK meant that not one but two podcasts were published for your listening pleasure yesterday. The Debrief catches up with all things news-worthy, including McLaren, Donington, and the last race in Bahrain. The Sidepodpanel is hosted by both Jackie and Lou and has some really great questions and a lot of laughs.
  • Alianora has been looking at the 2010 regulations in a lot of detail and written a great post on the subject. It's a long one but well worth a read. The last paragraph, though, features the phrase: "...mostly it is a mess..." which does basically tell you all you need to know.
  • Don't forget that if you're on Twitter (or fancy counting out 140 characters), then take part in the F1 Nostalgia competition. We've even started using a hashtag - #f1nostalgia - which makes the entries really easy to find. RG has signed up to Twitter especially for the competition, so if you're not a member yet, you've got no excuse.

That'll do for now. There'll be more news along later today, no doubt, so I will see you in the comments.

    In unrelated motorsports news, because that's my 'thing', Indy500 practice gets underway today with Rookie Orientation. Of note for us is Mike Conway who was BAR's tester in another life, wasn't he? He hasn't done too well in IRL so far this year.

    To link that to the Twitter note above, anyone into IndyCar can follow the series itself as well as a host of teams and drivers on Twitter. Full list is here:

    http://indy500.com/news/13798/IMS__IRL__Teams__Drivers_Embracing_Social_Media_For_Fans_During_May

    It got me thinking that F1 generally could do a much better job. Us fans and bloggers are holding up our end of the bargain but the teams are still writing as if they are doing press releases or using it as a linkfeed (compare @BMWSauberF1Team to @VisionRacing). There is no Official F1 Twitter account, and we're relying on the Fake Drivers for our kicks. Over in IndyCar the team-mates are using it to rip into each other!

    That's one of the reasons. I'm kind of a lurker on most websites and forums I visit. Mainly because I'm scared I'll say something that will offend or be laughed at by the regulars. Thankfully, this site seems more grown up, so I'm more confident. That's increasing my posting rate as well.

    Is it not good that it took off?

  • Flibster05/05/2009 at 11:54

    Is it not good that it took off?

    No.

    No certificate of airworthyness

    Only ground running condition

    No airworthy spares

    Unsure if it was a licenced pilot at the controls..

    No insurance for flying

    Very bad indeed.

  • Gavin Brown (RubberGoat)05/05/2009 at 11:56

    This aircraft, named Teasin' Tina *still wearing her Gulf Argument colourscheme* was retired from the airforce in 1993 - most of the Victors at that time had flown right up to and int his case past her normal lifespan.

    Very bad indeed.

Good news is, my fave band (the barenaked ladies) released 3 of their songs on the latest album in a compatable form with Audacity, so I can remove the voice track and add my own, with the original music playing underneath!

    I've chosen the song another spin. Thinking about singing either about Piquet or Silverstone last year

    Interesting that KERS seems to be falling out of favour isn't it? I think it is a pity as we've not yet had a chance to see the WIlliams system in action.

    It's also just as well that there's no wide-area network version of KERS ;)

    Because they suspected I had Epliepsy. Stupid really, because I have an office job and I have been a computer geek my whole life.

    Every time I get tested, they tell me "oh, you're fine, but we're going to have to run another test." Every test has shown I'm in rude health, which makes me more depressed that they can't just draw a line under it!

    donington news:

    "The promoters of the 2010 British Grand Prix at Donington have been given until June 30th to provide the local council with the paperwork it needs in order to get the planning permission signed off so that the race can go ahead."

    8 more weeks? After giving them 2 extensions already?

    *sigh*

    Bernie - just can the British GP now - Donnington's promoters appear to be useless and Silverstone is almost as bad.

    If you want to get the British fighting for the GP - send it to France or Germany. Then people will actually do something to get it back from them.

    it's the same old thing with a big constructiong thing in the UK really. It always amazes me how quick Abu Dhabi has come together when we have our problems, look at the new Wembley and the ridiculous problems it had with it's budget, other money issues and the deadline of building it.

  • Alex Andronov05/05/2009 at 17:59

    So here's a fun thought for an evening conversation...

    What is your favourite F1 moment of all time?

    What I mean is a moment that gave you simple pure F1 joy. It's worth thinking about because you have to have a favourite really.

    What I'm thinking of are moments like Jenson winning after so many years... The moment you realised Alonso had toppled Schumi's dominance... One of Murray's crazy comments. Or was it something away from the track?

  • Jackie05/05/2009 at 18:02

    What I'm thinking of are moments like Jenson winning after so many years... The moment you realised Alonso had toppled Schumi's dominance... One of Murray's crazy comments. Or was it something away from the track?

    It was Lewis in China on the kitty litter for me, sorry if I offend people but that was just so funny.

  • Lukeh05/05/2009 at 18:03

    What is your favourite F1 moment of all time?

    My absolute favourite is a choice of three, I couldn't choose between either of these:

    1) Murray in Japan when Damon Hill came round the final chicane and that legendary line 'And I'm going to have to stop, because I have a lump inside my throat' - it's just a legendary moment of happiness and success and everthing, plus that was when I started really, really getting into F1

    2) Rubens Barrichello's first win in germany 2000 and seeing him in tears on the podium and when he got out the car being so damn happy and everything :) Amazing moment and I was so so so so so proud for him!!

    3) Brawn GP's 1-2 in Australia, the underdogs overcoming the odds and just everything, I know it's a very recent thing and there could be so so more many possibilities but the feeling I got from this rivals the previous 2 I mentioned and a Honda fan it was an incredible moment to see Jenson, Rubens and Ross al there huddles in sheer bliss :)

  • chris evans05/05/2009 at 18:03

    What is your favourite F1 moment of all time?

    Not sure if it is my favourite of all time, but the last couple of laps in Brazil last year were pretty special. I went through the full range of emotions in the space of five minutes. It still sends a shiver down my spine every time I see it.

  • Bassano Clapper05/05/2009 at 18:04

    It was Lewis in China on the kitty litter for me, sorry if I offend people but that was just so funny.

    Same thing happens to me whe I see Sutil running

    Jackie it was supposed to be a nice happy thing! Tsk!

    Were you really happy when that happened?

    I much prefer moments when somebody does something to win than when somebody does something to lose.

  • Jackie05/05/2009 at 18:05

    Itw as just one of them awwwwwwwwww :) moments when you just feel so pleased for them and you know it means the world to them. I still think rubens got such a raw deal at ferrari in terms of how good he was, but when your teammate is michael schumacher, you're always going to get that

  • Jackie05/05/2009 at 18:09

    Jonny Herbert in the Stewart getting the teams first win at the Nurburgring after frankly, a dreadful year for him.

    First lap of The Eurpoean Grand Prix at Donnington in 1993

    Mika Hakkinen's first race in the McLaren MP4/8 - outqualifying Senna

    Mika Hakkinen's first win at the European Grand Prix at Jerez in 1997 - I know it was team orders - but it was wonderful to see.

    Hakkinen's title in 1998

    Finally - the 1987 Monaco and Detroit Grand Prix. Team Lotus' final wins at the hands of Ayrton Senna. Happy, but also sad.

    It's just the travel arrangements which we're trying to sort out which is why the suggestion of staying with Dad is coming up.

    Nice - you should have sung my song because you can actually sing...

    You know, I was listening to Tell Me Lies in the car this morning when I was getting a lift to work and I thought about your song. I was also going over how I'd sing it. :D

  • Alex Andronov05/05/2009 at 20:07

    Fourstar talked me into it. It was a silly thing where there were some people suggesting the scores for the match. And then I boldly suggested this score (off the top of my head). Obviously I needed to back it up. So I said... "I will place all of the money in my pocket on the outcome".

    Turned out I only had 91 pence. But Paddy Power* will take any amount as a stake.

    *Other betting firms are available.

    :) I still remember the adrenalin when i was listening to the horses as a teenager. winning $11 seemed like a great afternoon, but the fact i lost about $15 in all the other bets just never seemed to factor into my joy of winning a whole $11.

  • Alex Andronov05/05/2009 at 20:15

    Apparently it's your reaction to this that decides how you feel about betting.

    If your reaction is like mine where I feel I lost the winnings then you're unlikely to come back. Whereas if only the wins mean anything to you then you are likely to become addicted.

    Very interestingly in the world of betting beginners luck has been proven. It sounds silly but it is true. People who continue to gamble are generally far more likely to have experienced beginners luck. Because on average of course you always lose but of course at random some people are lucky at the beginning. Those people are always chasing those early highs.

    It is of course, in statistical terms, a self-selecting sample.

  • Alex Andronov05/05/2009 at 20:16

    That was a lot of "of courses" from me!

  • Steven Roy05/05/2009 at 20:17

    The score is now 3-1 so you could be half right

  • Alex Andronov05/05/2009 at 20:18

    The score is now 3-1 so you could be half right

    Woohoo. If it stays this way I will just explain to fourstar that he misinterpreted what I meant.

    You are totally right. I'm still convinced I can make it big, but I rarely gamble now - it's really the more personal bets that I'll make. Like betting on a friend moving overseas and random stuff like that.

    I'll listen when I get back, and maybe I'll even leave a voicemail, but there won't be any singing. If I get bored while travelling, I'll write some Haiku about Sunday's race. Anyway, hometime for me. Have a good night everyone :)

    Without wanting to seem silly about this... The best tactic is to go on the offensive. Actually decide what you want to do and make it clear that you have made a decision and explain what it is. Then say this and oftentimes this is all that Mother's want to hear. They want you to decide.

    Sometimes you think that just letting it wash over you is the quickest route to peace. It is not. Making them run out of subject is by far the quickest method.

    In my experience the answer is to say not just why you get it but what you are going to do about it. Even if it is something like, "that's interesting, but of course I would have to discuss it with Dad. I'm not sure quite what I think yet. But his reaction will have a bearing"

    "So you will discuss it?"

    "Yes I'll talk to him on XXX"

    also a link to gp+ magazine farther down, as joe's been sending us loads of links recently.

    I like the update and if you are planning on making those players available to other sites, pls let me know.. Agreed on not knowing whether fwd or back should go to the next show..

    Looks and sounds good though.

    we pretty much discussed all the changes at the weekend. i'm not that brave ;)

    if you are planning on making those players available to other sites, pls let me know..

    f1 minute player is already available here: http://www.f1minute.com/share/

    we didn't think there was much call for embedding spc shows?

  • me05/05/2009 at 22:58

    it's in the podcast feed (as suggested by commenters), and the player just plays the feed. again, i am not a brave man :D

    OK, it's good if you know what's going on. Something to think about though, if you are a new visitor, it's not at all obvious. I know web sire design is really hard so I'm not criticizing, but it would be good if there was a list of recent podcasts or similar somewhere. I do like the player though!

    Got F1 Minute already :-)

    Just thought it would be a cool thing to have the SPC shows on blog sidebars. I have no idea how much it would get used. If it turns out 'not much' then pull it. Depends if it is worth the work.

    Actually, I'm in two minds about this. When I discovered SPC, it took me ages to find everything on the site. In some ways that's a good thing, it kept me coming back :-)

    you're more than welcome to copy the html from the sidebar and add it to your site. same for anyone else.

    we'll have a think about setting up a page, the video player is quite popular, but i can't imagine that many people would want us waffling on their website?

    there is that too. maybe we'll look at working the idea into the redesign?

    Well after listening to the last panel, you should advertise the "sexyest voices in F1". (Just between us guys that is)

  • Steven Roy05/05/2009 at 23:07

    I like the idea of the player on the front page but I think you need to differeniate between each show. As it stands on a race weekend we will have 4 digests one after the other which could cause people problems.

    On the Joe advert would it not be better to advertise one of his free sites so that people could see how he writes and they can be diverted to his pay site from there? If people get sent straight to his pay site they may leave immediately on finding that there is a cost.

    I have no idea. And I have no idea if anyone would sit on the webpage and listen for half an hour for a debrief, rather than download the MP3. Its just an added option.

  • me05/05/2009 at 23:13

    damn good point. we're limited by what the player can do and space at the moment, but you're right.

    fair point, but my selfish reason for linking to gp+ is because i love what joe's doing with micropayments. same reason i champion the autosport online subscriptions. i love the idea of niche content at affordable prices and wanted to encourage that. rather than "here's a cool blog you should check out".

    i can be easily swayed though.

  • Andy Taylor05/05/2009 at 23:16

    i can be easily swayed though.

    I disagree, of course you should be linking directly to Joe, the advert itself clearly states the cost.

  • Andy Taylor05/05/2009 at 23:19

    It should be the Japanese. Though on current form, the German theme is just as likely to be heard.

    What's the criteria though? The company is Japanese, as is the Team Principal, but based in Germany. It's the same for Force India isn't it? Owned and run by an Indian, based in the UK.

  • Flibster06/05/2009 at 00:08

    An little update on the Victor incident from Sunday.

    UK air accident specialists are not intending to investigate an unusual incident at an air show during which a Handley Page Victor bomber unexpectedly became airborne during a high-speed taxi demonstration.But while the Air Accidents Investigation Branch says it is "aware" of the incident, it is not conducting an inquiry. The Civil Aviation Authority has so far been unable to comment further, pending clarification of the incident, but says the aircraft is not on the civil register.

    So someone is going to get spanked by the CAA.

  • Steven Roy06/05/2009 at 00:10

    I guess they get a little bit sensitive when a plane that is not certified for flight takes off.

    Not get it close to V1 is the obvious one and respect the crosswind limits on the airframe.

    The Victor is a difficult beast. The wings are very canted so it has been known to take off with liberal forward stick pressure - where the nosewheel remained on the ground and the main gear to leave the bonds of the earth..

    Stull an ugly beast though - and I love it. :D
