It's Friday night/Saturday morning and that must mean it is my turn to write the daily again. I am so loving the variety we're getting with multiple daily authors, thanks must go once again to our fabulous volunteers. If you want to have a go but don't fancy a regular stint, just let me know and you can take over this Saturday as a one-off, if you so desire. Anyway, on to fun things:

  • The above picture is courtesy of Lou who designed us a fabulous piece of art, just because. It's so amazing, encompassing everything that Sidepodcast is about, and we're so grateful for it. It was supposed to be handed over at the London meetup that we didn't attend due to general F1 anger issues, but we're pretty sure that would have cheered us up.
  • F1 is back in action, with Free Practice Friday under our belts and some more practice and qualifying sessions still to come. So far, the track action itself hasn't been incredible, but it's been fun looking at the motorhomes again, and feeling the general enthusiasm from the paddock now that we are back in Europe.
  • There's a great post from Joe about secret goings on at the Toyota team - not only their future plans but also a potential send off for John Howett. I'm a big fan of Mr Howett as he spent a lot of time on Sidepodcast TV discussing the upcoming races. It looks like he might have crashed an F1 car. Oops.

That should do it for now. I hope you'll join us for live commenting throughout the day, and begin making predictions for the race tomorrow. Let us know who you've selected for your Fantasy Racers team, and I will see you in the comments.

    true, but it must be an hour journey to the hotel, you'd be lucky to be in bed by 3am.

    not sure they're quiet enough / warm enough to sleep in. you could get a campervan thing like rosberg i guess. jenson used to do the same didn't he?

    hehehe yep, i think one of JB's old fan videos was set in his mobile home thing... then his old girlfriend Flo made him sell it, and when he went through his 'hippy' stage... make him by a VW campervan....

    One of the problems with the space shuttle is that there is no way to get the crew cabin away from everything else if there is a problem during the launch. All the conventional roccket stack vehicles that existed before it had launch abort systems. The shuttle replacement which has supposedly been cancelled except for the Mars mission has had the first test of its launch abort system and it was perfect. On top of the capsule there is a tower with 3 or 4 directional rockets that can lift the capsule from the rocket and take it a mile or two away from the scene of the accident. Video of the test at

    i know he took it to goodwood one year.

    where's the luxury in VW?

  • Alison07/05/2010 at 23:40

    who is they?

    Silly schedulers. It doesn't matter what you're doing in a day, it's more or less guaranteed you'd be doing it at that time of day!

  • me07/05/2010 at 23:41

    it's like a rocket in itself.

    JB used to park his mobile home next to DC's and JV's. If you were stuck in the pits with nowhere to sleep the best place in an emergency is the driver's room in the motor home. So you could sleep in Jenson's room because he only needs it during the day.

    did he not sleep in it at night too? i think nico does.

    i think he used to go camping a bit though.... then he met Jessica and realised he'd much rather go on holiday all the time to amazing very hot places...

  • Steven Roy07/05/2010 at 23:43

    it's like a rocket in itself.

    It's a baby rocket. The explosive bolts between the capsule and the main rocket get blown and the abort system lifts it away then the abort system and the blast shield on top of the capsule are jettisoned and it parachutes safely to the ground

  • Steven Roy07/05/2010 at 23:43

    Not the room in the team motor home

  • lou07/05/2010 at 23:43

    yeah they all used to right?... i remember DC and Jenson discussing a drivers bbq once...

    oooo you mean like the one i saw from the brawn pics last year where JB would have a massage and things before a race?

  • Steven Roy07/05/2010 at 23:44

    They used to have their vans all parked next to each other.

    Yep. All the drivers have them but are only there during the day so you can steal it and have somewhere free to sleep

  • Steven Roy07/05/2010 at 23:45

    I think we were all on slightly different pages.

    lou, just so you know... if you skip a trip to monaco to do a mock paper i will never speak to you again.

  • startledbunny07/05/2010 at 23:56

    But one is the monkey and the other is the organ grinder

    no they are equal. you can't have one without the other ( i started hearing the music to "magic moments" in my head then)

  • Amy07/05/2010 at 23:56

    You would be living my dream honeymoon. This means you only have a week to get married.

  • lou07/05/2010 at 23:57

    lou, just so you know... if you skip a trip to monaco to do a mock paper i will never speak to you again.

    hehehe! :) s'alright, i've basically given up caring about history anyways...

    you are all forgetting one thing though... the monaco gp is next weekend and Lukeh doesn't have a passport..... :(... not that ari has offered him a trip yet..

  • lou07/05/2010 at 23:57

    Getting a passport isn't dependent on where you are going, that's a visa

  • Alison08/05/2010 at 00:03

    That's a really bizarre connection, if I may say

    That's all I think about when I think Monaco. Really really gorgeous women.

I'd have to leave by 30th June but I can split my trip in Dubai for a week for free so I don't see the difference but apparently it's no good....

    I think you just need to get him to tell you what dates work for him then try to get a flight. No point in you constantly trying to do stuff just for him to dismiss it.

    Sian Lloyd, the weather lady.

    Last night they introduced a political commentator to talk about him not getting elected. Oddly she had the same name. I nearly had a heart attack. Surely they weren't passing this woman off as a political analyst so they'd fight on air... Sadly it was another woman of the same name.

    Yeah, if you download the latest version. It scans your hard disk or checks your itunes library. I'm mixing tracks from my own list with tracks they have available. Just as a collection for now, not in any order.

    Actually I'm testing this too, by playing one of your shows :) I've stacked them up until I found the time to note down what tracks I want and how to get hold of them, and this means I don't have to do that, if they have it I can just add it to a playlist.

    And it links with Facebook so you can share things.

    sounds tempting. i am a hoarder of music. i like to have the song. i know i'm behind the times though,

    i was watching 24hour party people recently, which is a film about the days of factory records and the hacienda days in manchester, and tony wilson. since then i've been downloading tracks from joy division and new order, and looking into other bands around that time.

    I have been at the jazz bar. I am a little jealous of my friends though because the tram stop is at the end of their street. They are probably already in bed. After I get this tram I then have to get another one and could have to wait another 30 min if I don't time it right. i really need to socialise in my own neighbourhood more. Or get over my hatred of taxis.

    I hate taxis because to get home from here would be about $30 whereas my tram ticket cost me $3 for the day.

  • Amy08/05/2010 at 14:07

    Its 12.06 TRAM IS NOW LATE grr. Don't they know I have qualy to watch when I get home and every minute I spend passing time on an f1 website is another chance of being spoiled?

    While I have been standing here for 17 minutes 3 have gone in the other direction. Maybe there is a black hole up there and they aren't turning around like they are meant to. This tram stop is also by some traffic lights and I keep getting heckled by cars who stop :(

  • Amy08/05/2010 at 14:15

    9 minutes late. Thats pretty shocking when you only have to run 3 trams an hour on time. I might cry.

    I am on a tram! I wonder if this is the late 12.06 or an early 12.25. Dear foreigners, if visiting, don't read our timetables, they don't actually mean anything.

    You're doing better than my local buses. I sometimes wait for an hour for one of those. Considering that they're half hourly, this is confusing for me....

  • Amy08/05/2010 at 14:27

    I don't normally bother aiming for a specific time, I just show up and get on the next one that arrives. It's not a big deal during the day but the streets and the public transport itself feels so dangerous at night. A train would have been quicker than this but I refuse to use them alone after about 10pm, they are so much more crime ridden than trams

    Former Leyton House, Jordan, Midland, Spyker and Force India commercial director Ian Phillips was in the Barcelona paddock today. It was his first appearance at a race since he split with Vijay Mallya over the winter and he is in no hurry to return to the sport.

    well probably, but it's frustrating cause it's such a cool word and I never get to say it :( .... Don't laugh lol :)

  • Pat W08/05/2010 at 16:51

    In the LMS, Bourdais is on pole, Montagny 3rd, McNish 6th, Davidson 7th.

    Fisichella and Alesi are 13th in their class and 44th overall. Not sure they are getting the hang of it yet (might prefer the top class..)

    i'd rather the guy was rubbish and went home to be honest.

    How much money do Mercedes have to develop 2 versions of this year's car to suit both drivers? Rosberg has a couple of races to warm to this new update, and I reckon he'd ask for the old one back just on his side. If that was developed side-by-side, I reckon Mercedes would be quick with both drivers.

  • Pat W08/05/2010 at 16:55

    i was enjoying the undoing of his legacy. the man who could drive anything unable to drive anything.

    True I suppose. He was always going to run better in Spain though, he always does. Spa as well if he makes it that far.

    i should say in defence of Fisi/Alesi/Vilander (not sure who was driving), GT2 was separated by 1.4 seconds from 1st to 14th.

    They've been practically dormant for a couple of years, thought I'd make use of them. I used the £3.78 on lots of little things because the odds were tiny. The £2.80 is on Webber to win because I decided what the hell its no money at all and I get £6 if he wins..

    I love the Wii, it's a fantastic machine in the vast amount of interest it's gained from so many different types of people but I can emphasise with their feelings. When you have alternative consoles in the same generation being far more powerful and doing more, you can see why they feel like that.

    Of course, the PS3/Xbox focus far different in terms of audiences they're targetting to that of the Wii so there's no real reason to complain about it anyways. What the Wii does it does fabulously :)

    The knackered old Mazda rebadged as a Ford that Dad begrundingly bought as our first car when we moved to NZ.

    It leaked, rusted, was awful to drive, uncomfortable and had a horrible habit of breaking down every time we went on holiday!

    It does seem optimistic to think they can cap it with a lump of metal. I would have thought they should have a boat with a big pump, a big tank and a long hose above the outlet now sucking up the oil that is coming out.

    If only it were that easy. What's scary is that a device supposedly safe and in use in hundreds of rigs around as a last resort and failsafe didn't work - yet nobody knows why...

    So until they figure out the cause every rig in the world is suspect?

    In theory, yes. In practice as long as the Blow Out Preventer (the failsafe device) is regularly tested (as it should be SOP anyway), the risk is low, as long as the guys on the drill floor keep their eyes on the gauges...
