We are midway through the week now, which will make Mr C happy as he thought it was Wednesday yesterday. He's gained a day! Meanwhile, the rest of us know what day of the week it is, and are talking about more sensible things:

  • The Trulliometer has taken a bit of a downward turn as the Italian says he has given up predicting when Toyota are going to win. He thinks there have been so many missed opportunities that it's not worth repeating "maybe this time". Poor Trulli.
  • Liuzzi  has expressed his gratitude that his first race will be Italy and not Singapore, as he feels he's ready to race round Monza, whereas the street circuit will be a bit tougher. He says he will be right up to speed though, and on the pace. The good thing for Tonio is, he only has to be less than two seconds off the pace, and he'll be doing okay.
  • Finally, Massa underwent his surgery a couple of days ago, and Ferrari issued a simple statement to say it was successful and that the Brazilian would have a short stay in hospital before returning home when his training can begin in earnest. Yay for Massa! There was also an in-depth interview with him in The Guardian yesterday that is well worth a read if you haven't already.

That's all for now. We're heading straight towards the Italian GP action. There should be a digest preview out later today, plus a schedule of what we're doing over the weekend. Keep your eyes peeled and I'll see you in the comments.

    Morning *yawn*

    Question to Mr or Mrs C....

    on Music Alley it says about saying where the music comes from that you use in the show...now some music i.e in the mini series comes from there but Music Alley isnt mensioned, and you play music at the beginning of the live shows too. How do you get round not saying it?

  • Jeremy08/09/2009 at 23:24

    it's not a preview thing, sometimes my link button fails and it removes a tag at the end which means that it links the whole darn post

    they changed the t&c's recently. and they didn't tell us. in future shows we will, but you didn't use to have to do that.

    Oh i awoke to the most wonderful news! Bye Murray! Roger for 16! And my final foray into gambling to pay off!

    not so fast. last time in Roland Garros/Wimbledon was OK because Roger needed to put the ultimate signature to an amazing record career. but this time is for Del Potro ;-)

  • Nick09/09/2009 at 00:27

    :-) people would discuss forever if it's valid or not. better for him to win a proper grand slam next year (beating Nadal in Roland Garros)

    We got our first pre-recorded show uploaded today with Jon's feeder series show. I have listened to it and the half hour flew in.

    We need to see more pre-recorded shows being uploaded soon and we also need people to phone in and leave voicemails either as contributions to shows or just as links between shows etc.

    We now have a full 12 hours scheduled again with Jon's show and one that Gavin is working on but as ever we can use short filler shows and of course there is the usual list of people looking for contributions to their shows.

    Check the wiki http://wiki.sidepodcast.com/page/Sidepodradio and click through the links to individual shows and see what you can contribute. It would be fabulous if everyone had a contribution however short on the day.

    I am going to bed now. No shouting my name. I wish Alex would tell me how to switch off the head ping.

    I'd like to tell you but... goodness knows what you might do with the information.

    But I don't want to turn his head pinger off. What if we need him in an emergency?

  • Paul09/09/2009 at 05:57

    But I don't want to turn his head pinger off. What if we need him in an emergency?

    Very true - I don't suggest it.

    There do seems to be a couple of other "head pingers" around though.

    Speaking of which - if I was an author, I think I could write a whole book about this place......!

    heh... I think, luckily, there isn't much dramatic tension here which means that it's a) a fun place to hang out and b) it wouldn't be a very interesting book.

    Did Andy Murray lose and did that make Amy happy?

    Looking at the news... it says yes! :O It should make Amy happy. :D

    Did everyone see Dieter Rencken's paywall article about conspiracy theories for next year's entrant list: http://www.autosport.com/features/article.php/id/2368

    The reasoning behind Proton's entry sounds very convincing... Basically:

    Proton are owned by the Malaysian Government

    The Malaysian Government were already bankrolling BMW with Petronas

    Proton has a new CEO Dany Bahar

    He was the man who got Red Bull into F1

    Jean Todt was the person who arranged for Sauber's Ferrari engines to be rebranded Petronas.

    Jean Todt was recently named as Tourism Malaysia's international ambassador

    Apparently according to one of his sources Nicholas Todt will manage Proton.

    This is all good and well... except that Bahar is managing Lotus, not Proton.

    That said, Bahar did come from Ferrari...

  • Amy09/09/2009 at 08:08

    eeeeeeeeeee even the start sequence is epic. Everyone without a console should buy a console so they can buy this game.

  • F1Wolf09/09/2009 at 08:08

    This is all good and well... except that Bahar is managing Lotus, not Proton.

    I take it that the whole Petrona Lotus Proton Todt thing is based on takeover of the existing Hinwil operation, not on building a new team from scratch. I seriosuly doubt that anyone who does not have entry by now, facilities ready a at least some work done on 2010 car (like having 2009 in one hand and drawing of huge fuel tank in the other) can realistically think about being on the grid in Bahrain in March next year

    the only criticism I read of this game is right - when you are playing you are focusing on the notes you have to hit so you don't get to watch the fantastic background graphics. The mannerisms are perfect :D

    Ringo is still alive in this game, which is good.

    Thats the one!!

    I'd recommend checking out theb Exogenesis symphony off this new Muse album when it comes out. It's 13 minutes long and all composed by the band, but in many interviews they've mentioned how much they've looked up to some of his stuff and been influenced by it for this track.

    I watched it at the cinema by accident.

    My friend said, "hey there's this classic film on at the renoir do you fancy going to see it".

    "Sure," I said, "what's it about".

    "Oh it's about this couple who work in an office and they fancy each other but can't do anything about it, it's in French"

    "Okay cool, sure".

    We were really confused by the long establishing shot, it was only 20 minutes in that we realised that we probably weren't going to get any dialogue.

    Afterwards we realised that my friend had read the title of one movie and skipped down to the next review and got a bit confused.

    “We need to get Karun in the Formula 1 car quickly,” he said. “And he has got the talent and the ability, so it’s a case of somebody just getting on and doing it now.”

    Nadal is back to number 2 now which is nice :D Nadal and Delpo have exactly the same odds to win so they're probably joint favourites. Nadal might get the edge because hes who he is, but hes not 100% at the moment.

    I think Journeyer is right about Ferrari but it could be:

    Fisi-Kimi then Liuzzi/Trulli and they wouldn't mind... But Liuzzi is more likely given the car...

    Actually I think bizarrely Kimi-Fisi would be better (and more likely) because if that happened every Italian paper would be happy. If it was Fisi-Kimi most would be but there would be comments about why they pay Kimi so much money.

    Nah - they'd be fawning over Fisi so much they'd forget about Kimi's salary. The last time an Italian won at Monza was in a Ferrari - Wikipedia says it was Scarfiotti - in 1966. That's 43 years ago! Imagine the headlines if Fisi pulled it off.

    #mfc news - Strange one this, but interesting

    Polyphony Digital mastermind Kazunori Yamauchi has confirmed that the forthcoming Gran Turismo 5 features support for head-tracking via the PlayStation Eye camera accessory.

    The head-tracking feature is restricted to the in-cockpit view within GT5. Employing facial recognition, the PlayStation Eye scans the position of your head and adjusts the viewpoint in the cockpit accordingly, effectively replacing the use of the right analogue stick on the DualShock 3. Your display stops being a flat 2D representation of a 3D world and effectively becomes an interactive window into the game experience.

    Want to see how close your opponents are to catching up? Turn your head and look at the wing mirror. Want to see which gear you're using? Look down at the transmission and see for yourself as you would in a real car. Want to check out the racing line beyond the next corner? Look beyond the turn just like real drivers do.

    If you wanna read mroe you can check it out here. I have a Playstation eye camera so I'll check it out when the game finally decides to come out :P

    Why don't you phone in with your F1 related top 5 and help Christine out with her show? It's easy you can call Sidepodcast on Skype or you can call them on 0121 28 TRACK!

    Or presumably you can record an mp3 and send it in which is what I should have done... Christine I am sorry I may have spent more time laughing at my inability to read than I did actually giving my top 5!

    The trick is to pretend you are talking to the recipient as if they were there and not responding?

    I'm sure it's brilliant! If you want to do it again, you can, and we will disregard the first one and promise not to laugh :) Or you could do ANOTHER top 5. That would be even better.

    However, if you're happy with the one you've done, then I'm happy, and you are still my favourite :)

    Question: If sony are releasing one too, and so are Asus....how does the book-going-on-to-the-device-work, because clearly for the kindle you just buy off amazon but what about the other 2?

    Question: If sony are releasing one too, and so are Asus....how does the book-going-on-to-the-device-work, because clearly for the kindle you just buy off amazon but what about the other 2?

    The kindle is over the air... And Amazon had to get completely different deals for all of their stuff...

    My guess is that this is going to be a greater problem than iTunes.

    With an iPod you can buy from iTunes or you can rip yourself. With other mp3 players you have to rip yourself and the lack of conveniance of no itunes is slightly annoying but not too bad.

    With books it's much worse. Without a iTunes equivelent for books you are stuck. Or just able to use Guttenberg.

    My guess is that if we get no Beatles we will get no Steve. And in my heart I think EMI have said no Beatles.

    Hey Journeyer, What's this all about?

    Oh, THAT. It was announced this morning our time. After Cory died lot of people were clamoring for Noynoy, Cory's son, to run as president to continue Cory and Ninoy's fight. The support for Cory and her values was visible throughout her wake and burial. It doesn't mention there that his party was supposed to already have a standard-bearer (a grandson of a former president), but he gave way for Noynoy in the name of unity and reform.

    Made our 2010 elections THAT MUCH MORE interesting...

  • Jon Waldock09/09/2009 at 13:10

    Mic up, Main Mix up. Sorted.

    Thanks all

  • Nick09/09/2009 at 13:11

    used to run f1 racing. now does pr at mclaren.

    Ah i know the one... :D

    Guess tomorrow will be announcement fever...

  • Journeyer09/09/2009 at 13:13

    known to be a bit email happy ;)

    what does that mean? :P

    somehow, i'd think that if it were true, they'd keep it secret until the day they announce it. i'm not convinced.

  • Journeyer09/09/2009 at 13:13

    used to run f1 racing. now does pr at mclaren.

    twitter says it's the other way round? he's now at f1 racing?

  • me09/09/2009 at 13:14

    what does that mean? :P

    nothing. at least nothing that could be proved :)

    somehow, i'd think that if it were true, they'd keep it secret until the day they announce it. i'm not convinced.

    true.

  • Nick09/09/2009 at 13:14

    I dont think anyone is capable of keeping gossip secret in F1.

    It just doesn't happen

  • me09/09/2009 at 13:15

    matt bishop? he is at mclaren, he was in the garage during the FOM valencia highlights video.

  • Journeyer09/09/2009 at 13:16

    I dont think anyone is capable of keeping gossip secret in F1.

    Alonso to McLaren was kept secret until the moment they announced it. No one saw it coming.

    It can be done.

  • Journeyer09/09/2009 at 13:17

    matt bishop? he is at mclaren, he was in the garage during the FOM valencia highlights video.

    ohhh. i thought you meant roberts. silly me for not reading older comments properly. :D

    still don't believe it, though.

  • Nick09/09/2009 at 13:17

    Alonso to McLaren was kept secret until the moment they announced it. No one saw it coming.

    That was only because they announced it a year early.

    If the paddock had been together for a few more races it would defiantly have got out.

  • me09/09/2009 at 13:17

    still don't believe it, though.

    that kimi is going to mclaren, or that james received an email?

    ok...so i should rephrase what i was meaning....(but im still likely to be wrong)....

    no-one at Autosport will write a story about a rumour thats on twitter, that Rubens is actually him, thats as good as a post-race press release quote. i mean that they (usually) wouldnt write about it if it was just a twitter rumour

  • me09/09/2009 at 13:25

  • Journeyer09/09/2009 at 13:35

    Apparently Fizzy didnt commit career suicide by taking the Ferrari job...

    Stefano is doing the right thing. With the testing ban, there's no other way to keep their current drivers sharp. They learned from the Badoer debacle.

    If the Lotus-Proton-Bahar-Todt rumors are true, we know where Fisi will end up next year.

  • me09/09/2009 at 13:56

    Does it make it any easier/harder to get replays?

    makes no odds really. long term, we want to do our own thing because you can customise it more, offer audio only feeds, stream to iphone etc.

    but as a one off for sidepodradio it wouldn't be the end of the world.

    i should add, i don't like that the player is 4:3 format too and few other things are more annoying.

    on the upside it stays alive for more than 40 mins.

  • Nick09/09/2009 at 14:00

    Always use the horn.

    If there is a cycle lane they arent using; swerving towards them as you pull back in front is usualy a good idea.

    Stuart,

    Before you depart... Any chance of you contributing a Top 5 Formula 1 related thing?

    All you have to do is think of a topic, for example Top 5 things that David Tremayne would like to rant about, and phone in with your list to Sidepodcast on Skype or on a land line 0121 28 Track.

    Thanks :)

    The Trulliometer has taken a bit of a downward turn as the Italian says he has given up predicting when Toyota are going to win. He thinks there have been so many missed opportunities that it’s not worth repeating “maybe this time”. Poor Trulli.

    Sorry, it is my fault that the Truillometer is down as well, I could not resist purchasing a Ferrari driver at Force India prices! Trulli was let go as I feel very comfortable that while Trulli could not get out of the bottom five, Glock will be anywhere from 3rd to 5th at Monza!

    Is that a buiscuit or a biscuit bar? I need Bassano to send in this feature... I feel completely lost!

    That's a chocolate bar that has biscuit inside it, don't get confused

  • Bassano Clapper09/09/2009 at 15:48

    Oooh, Bassano, I finally had one of them Kit Kat Chunky Caramel things!

    And, your thoughts?

    Ooooooh

  • Christine09/09/2009 at 15:49

    I was expecting it to be the runny type you get in a Cadburys bar, so I was surprised. Tastes nice though.

  • Bassano Clapper09/09/2009 at 15:50

    I was expecting it to be the runny type you get in a Cadburys bar, so I was surprised. Tastes nice though.

    Do you think they should have a Orange Caramel KitKat Chunky hybrid?

    I did

  • RG09/09/2009 at 15:50

    Again? The rain at Monza comes along like (thinks of something other than buses) hot days.

    I have phoned in 2 questions for RG to predict about in his radio show on SidepodRadio...

    I wonder if you can see where this is going...

    Don't make me say it ;)

    Thanks :)

  • RG09/09/2009 at 15:52

    I have phoned in 2 questions for RG to predict about in his radio show on SidepodRadio...

    Was hoping you weren't going to phone in. That requires me to think on the spot man.

  • Christine09/09/2009 at 15:52

    Do you think they should have a Orange Caramel KitKat Chunky hybrid?

    Would they be able to fit the name on the packaging?

  • Bassano Clapper09/09/2009 at 15:53

    Would they be able to fit the name on the packaging?

    They can omit 'Hybrid' if they choose

    Or make it bigger

  • Bassano Clapper09/09/2009 at 15:53

    Would they be able to fit the name on the packaging?

    Or I'd settle for Orange KitKat Chunky

  • Bassano Clapper09/09/2009 at 15:55

    On a serious note Bassano it's very easy... There are all kinds of free topics over here on the wiki page: http://wiki.sidepodcast.com/page/F1+Top+5

    Are you suggesting that biscuits is a subject not warranting serious discussion of supremacy?

    I do hope not

  • Alex Andronov09/09/2009 at 15:55

    Was hoping you weren't going to phone in. That requires me to think on the spot man.

    You put that I should in the wiki...

    I only followed the wiki...

    ... I can tell you what they were if you like?

  • Alex Andronov09/09/2009 at 15:56

    Are you suggesting that biscuits is a subject not warranting serious discussion of supremacy?

    No, no there was a timing issue with our comments... I actually now want from you two top 5s one for buscuits and one for buscuit bars

  • RG09/09/2009 at 15:57

    ... I can tell you what they were if you like?

    Best solution I reckon will be to voicemail them in to me, thats good. But like pm me your question to me via the wiki cos I can't predict on the spot if you know what I mean. Its intresting as I was just writing that on my plug post for the show.

  • Alex Andronov09/09/2009 at 15:58

    Okay here's a show that needs promoting...

    [I honestly am going to shut up now honestly... But Steven needed his sleep so I promised I wouldn't ping him and so instead I have to use all my plugging powers for Sidepodradio]

    But did you know that Sean is doing a show about other sports than F1?

    He is you know... I've thrown a could of questions his way and you can too.

    Want to know more... It's on the wiki:

  • Bassano Clapper09/09/2009 at 16:01

    If Steve Jobs is at the event later (it's not certain if he is yet)...

    I predict that, if RG were so inclined, he would say that Mr Jobs will be wearing Jeans & a Black Top

    (Did I just predict a prediction there?)

    I could be raring to go but I'm not sure

  • Alex Andronov09/09/2009 at 16:03

  • Alex Andronov09/09/2009 at 16:04

    (have sent the pm to you)

  • Bassano Clapper09/09/2009 at 16:05

    A good show is abbreivated.

  • Nick09/09/2009 at 16:05

    Yup... Sure.

    I think Gavin is the last one who needs to volenteer, but its a school night so i should really check...

    We can do it with 4 contestants, but if he cant do it i am sure steven will find a replacement ;)

  • Bassano Clapper09/09/2009 at 16:05

    No you'll be fine and raring...

    Is the show subtitled:

    "Whose sidepodtime is it anyway?"

  • Bassano Clapper09/09/2009 at 16:06

    Whose startline is it anyway...

    (I will have that blog post done by tomorrow night, but i am shirpish on time...

    It doesnt need a great deal of contributuions though so hopefully it will be ok ;)

  • Bassano Clapper09/09/2009 at 16:09

    Why HD on such a small screen?

  • me09/09/2009 at 18:21

    Why HD on such a small screen?

    because every time i buy a HD tv show. apple insist on sending me the SD version as well. only so that i can watch it on the ipod.

    i'd rather have one version and a device that can be plugged into a HDTV.

    Yeah... Not something I would be buying... But then I don't know why people want an iPod Touch rather than an iPhone...

    i have an ipod touch rather than an ipod for a few reasons..

    1. i like having seperate gadgets, and have no urge to need to have them all rolled into one, specially when i always have a handbag with me.

    2. the camera on the iphone, while good, is no where near as good as the one that i have on my phone.

    3. i can live without browsing the internet on the move... plus my phone does that (all be it badly)

    i would add, that having a single device means you always have to make a choice about battery. i can run the itouch down to 0% knowing nobody might call me on it.

    more people podcasting = more people realising how amazing christine is = more happy christine.

    i do.

    thing is i know that podcasting is harder and more expensive than blogging, and i didn't want us to be the go-to people for anything podcast related. we like making 'em not talking about making 'em.

    thankfully, that hasn't happened at all. both you and jon are up and running almost hassle free and everybody is chipping in with advice and help and i really like the way it's happening.

    so... more podcasts please.

  • Alex Andronov09/09/2009 at 19:16

  • Alex Andronov09/09/2009 at 19:21

    but more so now, right?

    Right...

    Lets put it this way... At the beginning when you come to Sidepodcast you think wow there is a lot of content how to they do all of this...

    Then after a while you settle in and you think... Another this show another that show... Really cool but you think you can see how it works. It takes an evening here an evening there.

    Then you try and make a podcast and you go... Hold on... Where did my life go?

    And then you look at that steady stream of content... The regular as clockwork amazingly high quality of content and you think... How? HOW? Is that possible... Maybe it's hard for me because I have a blog, she has a blog, maybe it's hard for me because I go to work, she goes to work...

    um... HOW? HOW!

    Only by being ubersuperfreakinamazing that's how!

    So yes more so now! :)

  • RG09/09/2009 at 19:21

    Is saltire wandering on spc.com?

    Occasionally, lurking more so than commenting

    Under the radar

    Is saltire wandering on spc.com?

    out of interest, why? i just emailed her.

  • Steven Roy09/09/2009 at 19:39

    Essentially says that all is not completely rosy with Macca-Mercedes marriage (since Macca are blocking Mercedes to supply engines to Red Bull). Brawns will be Silver next year and and to be 75% owned by Mercedes through Abu Dhabi and Nico is favourite to team with Jenson (poor Rubens).

    Norbert Haug said two days ago that Mercedes will own part of McLaren for many years into the future and they look forward to working with each other for many years. I suspect this is just GMM's translate button fail.

    Chris, are you near an Apple store?

    You may have an issue, is it a 3GS and therefore in warranty?

  • Steven Roy09/09/2009 at 19:40

    That... is an interesting way of seeing things... But why block RBR considering they did not block Brawn?

  • me09/09/2009 at 19:41

    remember our good friend chris h? just thinking he is on the quiz.

    yup. that's why i left. and emailed the same explanation.

    i don't want to dictate who does what on their own site, but i didn't want to leave without explanation either.

  • Gavin Brown (RubberGoat)09/09/2009 at 19:41

    well done lou.

    :) it annoys me that he says he did nothing wrong legally, but i'm pleased it's not being used anymore and i can forget all about it :)

    Legally maybe but morally and ethically he used stuff without asking... so he was wrong to...

  • RG09/09/2009 at 19:41

    i twigged from the underscore!

    what did he say about the game?

  • Chris09/09/2009 at 19:41

    Chris, are you near an Apple store?

    10 miles away. My hours at work are 9:30 to 6:15, so there's no way I can go 'till the weekend. At least the phone recovery works!

    You may have an issue, is it a 3GS and therefore in warranty?

    3g, and just over a year old.

    that he phoned the developers behind the game to get a release date.

  • Journeyer09/09/2009 at 19:42

    It was mentioned on the PF forum, so only fair to mention it here too:

    Race-day meeting key to Renault case

    Most interesting bit:

    A report in Italian magazine Autosprint also suggests that telemetry data from Piquet's car has emerged as another reason why the matter has gone to the WMSC.

    At Turn 17 where Piquet crashed, normally the rear wheels of the Renault would lose grip on the exit - requiring the driver to ease off the throttle briefly. However, on the lap he crashed, Piquet kept accelerating even though the rear wheels had lost grip.

    This spells trouble.

    I completely disagree.

    There is another Chris who writes the blog "Snakes on Level 9". He is into gaming and last I heard had an interview to work for a gaming magazine. IMHO either Chris H is copying him, or it is him.

    They had so many chances in the first half and didn't take them. Kenny Miller had an open goal and hit the goalkeeper who was horizontal from a previous shot.

    our history course isn't the best thing ever though :( we've been the 'trial' year again! :( so our AS course was full of the Crimean, Boer and WW1 (and their effect on Britain, plus Russia (from Lenin to Stalin).... which we all basically failed :( then our A2 course is Germany and then coursework about international relations leading up to the cold war (only interesting part so far really). The new AS course that they have selected for the year below us is amazing :( it studies both modern(ish) history concentrating on media, music etc... (the beatles feature heavily in it for some of it) and the other paper they do is about Russia i believe...the year below us always get a better deal than we do. grr.

    the best course i've done for history was our GCSE course which was on the history of medicine - soooo interesting!

I will concede that OSX is probably the best operating system but most Linux distros are now so close that it is really rather academic.

    That sounds like a great course to do. Lots of useful stuff to learn from it. We always seemed to do Romans and Henry the 8th. I still don't believe Henry the 8th was a Roman. It doesn't make sense

    Some of the Linux distros are now really awesome - Arch with KDE looks nearly as good as OSX with a very light footprint. I did try OSX on the MSI Wind - it works fine but it just hammers the battery (which is a bit small - but it weighs less than 1KG so I forgive it). Gentoo-based Sabayon is I think the nicest looking OS I have ever seen. Ubuntu in its various forms is OK but rather get Linux Mint as it is really well sorted out (Ubuntu done properly).

    so... i'm looking up the GQ Men Of The Year Awards cause i wanted to find out what Jenson won... and i had no idea it was yesterday... not that i would have been able to be all stalkerish and go to london anyway cause of school... but nice to know that random awards are being given to Jenson just because he is grabbing headlines this year :)

    Exactly.

    I remember saying back in March that Brawn is a new Williams in the making. It probably won't be - it's firmly tied its future to Mercedes-Benz. But I don't see any reason why they can't win multiple championships.

    I am sure Mercedes would have no problem selling them lumps to put into their car. Since I think Renault will be gone by that time they could get either a Cosworth or Toyota or produce their own. I am not sure Macca would want to go to Ferrari for an engine - it would be funny. Their new road car definitely looks a bit like a Ferrari!

    oh.. well... yeah... hmm.. :( why can't they just get sponsors and be like Williams and be all independent?.. i'll still love them if they become another version of mclaren.. but yeah.. it just seems one step further away from the team they once were i suppose.

    oh i'm not explaining it at all well. i blame my cold :(

  • lou09/09/2009 at 21:33

    It sounds more like they want Brawn to be a 'Mercedes 1' team!

    but they'll just be like Mclaren are now... in the way they are all silver and stuff...

    ignore me.. i'm all grumpy anyways, plus i hate change.

    What do you want? Williams are 'nice' but they have no chance of winning ... F1 is not nice and they need big money - very difficult to find in 2009. It's a good deal for the team. You should be happy that Jenson will have a good car next year!

  • Rich09/09/2009 at 21:34

    It sounds more like they want Brawn to be a 'Mercedes 1' team!

    Actually Norbert Haug has surprised me this year by seeming to be genuinely interested in the sport. Mercedes basically saved Brawn's bacon. Macca would obviously have been consulted and agreed. I think it is good news for Brawn and I think Mercedes will treat them well. I do feel sorry for Rubens though - but he might end up being World Champion this year!

  • lou09/09/2009 at 21:34

    yeah i suppose. i think it's because Mclaren have been my least favourite team of the grid for a while now, and the thought of Brawn GP being anything like them makes me angry. i'll get used to it, and they are in a much better position than they were this time last year, i'll just be a bit grumpy about it for a while.

    if Rubens doesn't retire at the end of this year, then i'll be gutted if he isn't in Brawn... specially if it's because Mercedes want Nico there... stick Nico in Mclaren... he'll be much better than Heikki ( #sorryamy ) and leave the brawn drivers alone.

    gosh i'm grumpy today.

  • Rich09/09/2009 at 21:38

    No disrespect to Rubey, but I doubt it

    I think he stands more chance than Mark Webber. In the last five races Rubens has been way faster than Jenson - he just does not have the luck.

    I think Mercedes will give the team more independence than any other manufacturer. Honestly it is good news for the team and its employees. I think Honda were quite fair in their pull out (unlike BMW who would not accept Sauber's offer which was actually quite good).

    OK fine - so you want them to be like Williams then?

    Let me tell you something - I have been and always will be a Williams fan. You know what? I am so desperate for them to win again I would wish for any kind of deal like this (even with the red cars) just to see it. Then you have RG who likes Toyota and Rich who likes BMW - what would they give to see it? Your team has had 7 wins and now has a secure future to build on.

    If you don't like the idea of Mercedes making a deal, I suggest we swap teams...

    I was actually a Sauber fan and so BMW by default, my second team is Toyota because I like Timo as a driver. - As both teams are somewhat uncertain it has not been a good year. Sure my dog will watch Jenson and listen to his audio clips.

    I like Peter Sauber - because he was passionate about motorsport and he was an independent, but then Red Bull sponsorship moved to form their own team and he needed to survive so he made the agreement with BMW for his employees.

    ...His horse racing show was great he tricked somebody in to thinking he could predict who was going to win the race and every time whatever he said won... the whole way through the program you were amazed by what was going on if she was a stooge, you thought, then she was the best actor ever.

    Turned out he had just run the trick enough times so that he had enough people in the pyramid of probability that by the last race he had 8 people left and 8 horses. But he told you in the show that's how he had done it.

    You will find you sleep better if you look at http://wiki.sidepodcast.com/page/Sidepodradio before you go to sleep and find a show that you can make a contribution to. Then leave voicemail for Christine and go to bed happy that you have made her day.

    Or you can ignore this advice and have nightmares

    "Symonds apparently claims that it was Piquet's idea, but Briatore is reported to have said that nothing of the kind was discussed."

    I think they better get their storylines to agree! I have lost all respect for the team and Symonds though. Never trusted Flav since Schumacher days.

    I have a problem...

    I have a ticket to England vs Australia at lords on Saturday which I want to give away to someone to watch the cricket with me. However I appear unable to get anyone to go....

    Is anyone here interested? It's a completely free ticket!

    depending on your willingness at degrees of separation very occasional commenter and all round good egg fourstar might well be interested. You may recognise him from such shows as podcast 1 on http://goforodd.com

    I'm not here obviously.

    No I didn't but now I do.

    I still think I am chatting to a bank of computers.

    I was hoping Vijay would give Karun (Chandhok, of GP2) a chance,” Ecclestone told Hindustan Times, “and I’m a little disappointed that he has put the Italian guy (Vitantonio Liuzzi) in… {Comment #170}

    I see Bernie's pet wallet is once again demonstrating that, in common with many predators, its mouth is larger than its brain.

    Apparently Fizzy didnt commit career suicide by taking the Ferrari job… {Comment #511}

    This is a very logical move on Stefano's part. The Badoer episode was so embarrassing that it does not bear repetition or even the risk of repetition.

    It also makes me happy because I want to see Fisi race next year but wouldn't want to wish the sort ill-fortune on another driver that would generally be necessary for a reserve driver to be needed.

  • Alianora La Canta10/09/2009 at 00:24

    If Fisi is Ferrari test driver…and he races for…FIF1 and then Nando sneezes and breaks his…splein….does Fisico just go running back to Ferrari leaving FIF1 having to use its test driver? {Comment #519}

    I believe that is how it would work, contractually speaking. Some teams would cope better with this requirement than others...

  • Alianora La Canta10/09/2009 at 00:29

    Off to Monza tomorrow, but may not be able to do any commenting owing to the skanky internet charges (over 100 euros for the weekend). This is a bargain basement job – Ryanair and everything. {Comment #586}

    That sounds unfortunate. Wouldn't mind swapping with you, but journalists deserve to have their internet paid for at the track (I understand Monza isn't the only one which charges). It is an essential tool of their job after all!
