The best cake I have EVER seen. A proper Futurama cake!!!

Ohh, hello again! I haven't seen you chaps for a while which is a shame but it's Friday and I'm back bringing you today's daily. Peter did a fantastic job last week filling in with his debut daily! Today is of course the start of another Formula 1 weekend, YAY! Remember as always to go and check out the Race Info thread for all your times, weather conditions, tyre graphics and pretty pictures. Did you know that today is International No Diet Day? Sounds like my kind of day to be honest, so if feel like a snack or pigging out remember - it's International No Diet Day! Hurrah! Now, for more pressing matters.

Paddock News

Basically, Williams Needs More Awesome Sir Rubens of Brazil has been out and about commenting on his team this week with all the talk about the changes and whatnot and this and that. He's actually pretty outspoken here and makes some really interesting points about Williams, saying more changes are needed and surely you can't fault him for at least being honest about the situation. Strange times at the historical British team though, to say the least. I am happy to work for them as a Rubens fanboy, should they be looking. Interestingly, it seems Adam Parr and Patrick Head have been in a bit of a verbal scuffle too. Who on earth picks an argument fight with Patrick Head? Adam, you craaaaaazy.

Sound like you need some Calpol, whispering like that - Poor Horse Whisperer. He's always whispering all the time and now he's got a load of allergies. Has he seen a Doctor about this? I'm sure there's a very good vet at Maranello who can help, and wonder why a horse is whispering. Perhaps he's a 'Hoarse' whisperer! Oh hoh. But yes, the mysterious character of Ferrari fiction has been talking about crazy rumours again and still being generally entertaining. I do hope when he or she writes these articles they write them on a platform looking over the small people.

Suddenly I have decided I don't like the new rules - No, no, I kid. Formula 1 has been pretty fabulous so far this year and even Michael Schumacher has decided he's remembered how to smile and enjoy the sport. That's nice of him! But he does seem impressed with the new rules and the fact he can actually race again now. I wonder if he was dominating in the red car again if he'd enjoy the rules as much always being at the front? Food for thought there, chaps. Food for thought. Now I'm just thinking about food.

Elsewhere...

Take out your note books, and get your pencils ready - You back there, sit up straight! I hope you are listening, because I will ask you questions after this test. Professor Andronov from the School of Giggles has provided us with the next best thing to Look and Read with a video guide to Sidepodcast and it is an educational, entertaining watch for all involved. So I expect you to take down notes and follow the video and his wise words!

The definition of classic from a classic dude. How classic - Another dose of the Rubensnator, I know, but I do very much enjoy watching the classic races on the BBC and this week they asked Rubens to choose his classic races to broadcast. He's got some fab choices as well, as you can imagine I'm delighted to see him choose Hockenheim 2000 but I'm also tingling with happiness that he chose Silverstone in 2008 as well! As a Honda fan watching their team struggle despite the dream team doing their absolute best, this podium was just the most amazing thing. Good times. Also, FIIIIIVE MASSA SPIIIINS! So pleased they chose 5 Live for the footage too.

You Can Now Hear the Doctor - You can never get enough Doctor Who awesomeness and yesterday Matt Smith, who you may know as the Doctor I suppose, turned up at Radio 1 and spoke to Greg James about the show. He does seem like such a nice chap plus I do like his stripey top. Lovely to hear BBC America, and the US in general, is really getting Doctor Who! To quote the 9th Doctor - FANTASTIC!! Whilst we're talking about Radio 1, I had to share this brilliant clip of Brian Cox explaining N Dubz - a bit of bad language but very, very funny!

And Finally

Tim Burton's got nothing on Dali - I can't believe I've never seen this before but this is SO cool. Back in the swinging 60's that crazy old legend that is Salvador Dali decided to make his own version of Alice In Wonderland, but this time with no Johnny Depp and in a book as to where it originated of course. You thought Tim Burton liked to make the story a bit dark and twisted? You ain't seen nothing till you've seen this by Dali. Surreal and just totally awesome. Very, very pretty too. What I would do to spend a day in that man's imagination...

Is there such a thing as Catography? Well there is now! - D'awwww. What a lovely moggy. This three legged little feline, known as Nancy Bean, has had a camera on her automatically taking photography and she's got a gallery of photos on display very soon. Such a cute little idea, don't you think? Plus she gets around mighty fine despite being having the three legs, plus the crazy wibbly wobbly photos remind me of my own superb talents of failing to take a good photograph. Go Nancy! It's also a valuable opportunity to blog Lou's latest work on her photography course, with a few select shots from her self directed course out there on her Tumblr. Let her know what you reckon of her mysterious locations in the comments or on Twitter!

And I am done for another week. I've missed writing a Daily quite a bit wierdly enough, collecting the links and putting it together is grand fun. Rememeber that Free Practise 1 and 2 start today at 0755 GMT and 1155 GMT this morning, although there will be no Anthony Davidson as he's in Spa being generally awesome. Shame, but you gotta do what you gotta do to be awesome. I'll see you lovely people in those comments below for another action packed day!

    Doesn't really matter what people think though. He's presumably the fittest man on the entire planet, has lots of money, a world championship under his belt, and a beautiful girlfriend. He seems happy and is mostly pleasant to those around him, who cares what his IQ is.

    Thing is, you still have to be very clever to be an F1 driver, if anything because of the technical requirements.

    It's not the sort of thing anyone can just roll up and do.

    True, but he wouldn't have become world champion if he was thick, no? No one should really question his IQ given what he achieved.

    if he grew up wanting to be a racing driver, and still had time to study, he clearly didn't want to be a racing driver nearly enough.

    surely only young karters rich enough not to need to try, or those lucky enough to be sponsored by ronald mc.claren could afford the time to do anything but drive for their livelyhood?

They just did a final poll of 22 flight controllers. 21 goes and the last one was weather who said no go. So we have a ten minute hold.

  • Steven Roy06/05/2011 at 20:51

    ahh, is the pulsing the overrun?

    The pulsing is weird. I thought the point of dumping fuel into the exhaust on the overrun was to get constant airflow. I have no idea why they would want pulsing

  • Barrie06/05/2011 at 20:52

    That is incredible. Easy to see the benefit of exhausts in that position

    I wonder how that works though......with the exhausts blowing out to the side like that, would it work in a similar way to the skirts of the 80's? almost making a seal around the underside of the car? It would be inconsistent though, because of the engine revs going up and down......but at least there wouldnt be the overheating problem at the rear end - like McLaren had with the octopus exhaust.....

    Blimey that was almost sensible. I need a lay-down.

  • Barrie06/05/2011 at 20:52

    more like the bow-wave on a boat.......

  • Barrie06/05/2011 at 20:55

    pulsing - could that be the engine at idle? foot off the throttle, maybe some of the cylinders cut out like in fuel-saving modes?

    thinking is bad. I have a headache now.......

  • Steven Roy06/05/2011 at 21:01

    pulsing - could that be the engine at idle? foot off the throttle, maybe some of the cylinders cut out like in fuel-saving modes?

    What most if not all the engine manufacturers do is inject fuel straight into the exhaust when the driver lifts off the accelerator. This helps maintain the flow to the wing/diffuser so that by lifting off the driver doesn't reduce downforce.

  • Barrie06/05/2011 at 21:07

    It would be interesting to see a smoke trail from above, or even a high up camera shot of the renault in the rain though.....the flow lines would be very telling......

    if the outward flow of the exhaust gases decrease the pressure under and around the rear end of the car, wouldnt that force the air from the front under and around? it is more like a bow wave....creating a small increase in drag yet increasing the flow under the car.....

    I just remember seeing similar airflow patterns when they DID have skirts, shaped floors and the Brabham fan car!

  • Barrie06/05/2011 at 21:08

    just watching it again, the spray from the back of the renault does seem a little more spread out....not so much of the rooster-tail look...??

  • Steven Roy06/05/2011 at 21:12

    if the outward flow of the exhaust gases decrease the pressure under and around the rear end of the car, wouldnt that force the air from the front under and around? it is more like a bow wave....creating a small increase in drag yet increasing the flow under the car.....

    I think it will act like a vacuum to the air from the front of the car so it's a bit like having a second diffuser in the middle of the car. Because of the speed of the exhaust gases they will pull any air around them creating a low pressure area which will pull in the air around that.

  • Steven Roy06/05/2011 at 21:13

    just watching it again, the spray from the back of the renault does seem a little more spread out....not so much of the rooster-tail look...??

    I need to sit and watch more of that car in the wet later to understand it. I bet all the teams have people checking the video too

    I'm watching FP2 on Speed.

    I havent seen FP2 yet

  • Kai06/05/2011 at 22:44

    yeah. All the same. I like "pick-up" the best. "Clag" is getting really annoying to me.

    From the Towel Day celebrations list:

    Someone in San Fernando Valley posted a craigslist ad looking for people to celebrate Towel Day with. We like his/her sense of humour: "The beach, while appealing, fails because there might be false positives".

    Do a half roll first to keep the G's positive before executing the half-loop. The turning radius is also tighter when you do the half-roll first, taking up less vertical separation.

    This is why Lou and myself are the pilots in this here outfit....

  • Mr C06/05/2011 at 23:50

    Other direction. Immerlmann is used to describe a steep climb with a roll in the climb to get the wings level and upside down to teh direction of the follwong attack or escape. It this point the pilot can eitehr dive to attack again or half roll to be right side up and escape at a higer altutide.

    "Inverted Immerlman" would mean to me that you are trying to climb with a plane upside down..... I would not want to try this stunt in a Harrier, let alone anything else....

    Half loops while diving are more like those power dives tht you see in all the WWII air combat movies when the planes "peel away"....

    Funny you should mention that Steven. I think the Red Bulls got their downforce advantage after the Red Bull Ms Extra 300's where able to start a climb from the inverted position during one of those Red Bull Air Races that they sponour ......

    The Simtek. Interesting story - '94; a dog of a car with a bit of cash - '95; half decent car with no money left.

    '94 was originally a decent runner, but the last minute rule changes floored simtek badly

    I am truly surprized that an F1 team has not come up with a way od dropping an F1 car into a vertical tower of water just to see how quicky it would reach the bottom. I mean nay nation that has submarines in their Navy would have such a tower for their submarine crews escape the sinking submarine training.

    With water being 25 times more dense than air it would surely tell you where you lack aerodynamic grip.

    Just before CFD came into F1 there were teams experimenting with small scale water tunnels. Water has 16 times the viscosity of air. Viscosity is more important than density

    interesting idea. it might break when it gets to the bottom though.

    Anybody know the number for accleration of gravity of a submerged object from slightly below the surface to the depth equal that of the length of an F1 car ? We can then calculate teh impact speed when the noe reaches a distnace of 250 feet which is how deep one of those things are.

    We can then add foam padding at the bottom to cushion the impact of the car. And Christine would have an awesome career as the diver who has to set everyhting up....

    I guess not. I have updated my flickr with the requested photos. Sorry about the quality. I blame the cheapie underwater camera.

    they look amazing sir, although i can't for the life of me remember requesting them

    May have been a week ago now. I was in the process of switiching over to Win 7 then. Something about me putting my foot into my mouth after Christine's idea of become a diver to see Nessie.

    What's this "audio alert" under "follow comments" in the realtime viewer. I do not remeber it being pointed out by Giggles ?

  • Mr C07/05/2011 at 00:37

    What's this "audio alert" under "follow comments" in the realtime viewer. I do not remeber it being pointed out by Giggles ?

    old school. no idea if it even works anymore?

    What's this "audio alert" under "follow comments" in the realtime viewer. I do not remeber it being pointed out by Giggles ?

    It's been there for months. It makes a scissor click type noise to let you know a new comment has been posted

  • Steven Roy07/05/2011 at 00:37

    It does

    you tick it, you get a snippy type sound after each comment.

    using it right now

  • Mr C07/05/2011 at 00:37

    It does

    bonus!

    So, how were FP1 & 2?

    I heard Vettel stacked it

  • Journeyer07/05/2011 at 01:04

    I heard Vettel stacked it

    Bigtime. Only did 4 laps yesterday - all in FP1.

    Good form from the Maccas and the Mercs.

  • Bassano07/05/2011 at 01:04

    Good form from the Maccas and the Mercs.

    Be nice to see the balance of power shift, for a little bit at least

  • Kai07/05/2011 at 01:06

    I heard Vettel stacked it

    He hit pretty hard. They should be about 1/4 done with repairs by now. :)

  • Journeyer07/05/2011 at 01:06

    Good form from the Maccas and the Mercs.

    Be nice to see the balance of power shift, for a little bit at least

    True. Hoping the Mercs show good form when it counts. But something tells me RBR will be there when they need to be.

  • Bassano07/05/2011 at 01:06

    True. Hoping the Mercs show good form when it counts. But something tells me RBR will be there when they need to be.

    Yeah, that won't change. He'll be glad of it by the time he's forty though

    He's fun on twitter, too, but it's mostly about the Jimmy Fallon Show. They're the house band there and work so great with Jimmy's improv. He does a lot of musical stuff. I like it.

    those mclaren black jumpers look so damn warm

    the thing I don't like about them this year is the way the logos are stuck on, it looks cheap

    because the fabric is sort of patterened, the logos are printed on a different black fabric then sewn on and I don't like the way it looks, the fan ones look even more obvious than the team ones too. It's the only thing that put me off buying one when I saw them in Melbourne, even though black is so much nicer than the grey one I have, at least the grey one has nice looking logos.

    it's cheats baking, get a square of frozen pastry, whack on some nutella fold in half and bake til golden. Om nom nom little choc hazelnut tarts that only take about 10 min.

    It's what my mum always did with left over pastry when I was a kid, except with jam.
