It's Halloween!! Well, it will be at this time tonight. Are you going to any parties? Dressing up? Or simply eating a lot of sweets? I know what sounds good to me. I carved a pumpkin once and it was gross. Anyway, here are some F1 things to discuss...
At last we have reached Friday. Yesterday was another rubbish Thursday for me, so I am glad we have finally made it to the end of the week. It's also Free Practice Friday, and we get to see the brand new track in action.
Can it really be Thursday already? Oh well, Thursday it is then. We are just one day away from seeing the brand new Yas Marina circuit in action, and I don't know about anyone else, but I am intrigued to see how that pit lane exit works out for everyone.
It is Wednesday, and that means we are about to start properly talking about Abu Dhabi. I mentioned it on Monday, but it still doesn't seem like it's really happening yet. Hopefully, when the schedule appears, it will seem more exciting.
It is the 300th day of the year today, which is a nice round number. I approve. It's also Tuesday, which means we're well underway in the week now. Here are some of the things we're talking about.
Lo and behold, we are now entering the last week of the 2009 season, with the build-up to Abu Dhabi starting now. Even though the championships are no longer at stake, there's still some racing to be had.
We spent quite a lot of Saturday finishing off our move, but at least we are done now. All bar the unpacking of the boxes this end. I'll save that for another day though, eh? Meanwhile, here are some of the things we're talking about at the moment.
The news we were waiting for yesterday was not as exciting as one might have expected, as it wasn't really a surprise, was it? Nevertheless it has captured the imagination of many.
We have reached Friday at long last, and it is, of course, FIA elections day. I have no doubt it will be impossible to avoid it, and we may even have another breakout thread at long last! Still, I would like to reserve the daily as my F1 Happy Place, thank you.
Here we are at Thursday, and it's time to start thinking about the weekend. It's the last free weekend before the end of the season, when there will be weeks without racing, and we'll finally be able to get stuff done.
Apparently it is Apple Day today, and that is not to do with the iPod people, but more to do with apples and orchards. Once again, I don't know how you are supposed to celebrate these things, but I think a good apple crumble is on the cards. Meanwhile, F1 related stuff.
Roll on Tuesday then, and it appears that yesterday I missed the opportunity to wish Heikki Kovalainen a happy birthday. I must say a belated Happy Birthday, then, and also a #sorryAmy.
Naturally, we are still recovering from the events of yesterday, not only a massive championship-deciding race, but also hosting the debrief into the late hours. Still, that doesn't take any shine off what was another awesome weekend in F1.
Yesterday was something to behold, wasn't it? For those of us watching qualifying, we had quite a long time to wait to get to the results. For those who didn't, the highlights will sum it all up for you in a much more sensible amount of time!
Friday turns into Saturday and there is one more Free Practice session to enjoy before the best part of the weekend is upon us. Qualifying for this crucial championship race will be something to behold, I'm sure.
Free Practice Friday has reached us once more and we are in Brazil, this time not for the last race of the year. It feels very odd to think that there's another race after Brazil, and it will feel even stranger if the championship is decided this race.
We have reached that dreaded day of Thursday, but it turns out that some people have been experience Thursday symptoms on a Wednesday and sometimes, more annoyingly, on a Friday. We are going to have to do more to contain it, I think. Anyway, here are some F1 related things to discuss.
Today is World Standards Day, and supposedly this is to celebrate those who create and uphold standards in organisations. Do we need to come up with some Sidepodcast standards? For instance, pandas must be mentioned at least once a day? Or Mr C must bake a cupcake at least once a year and document it on a live show? What do you think?
Monday is over and done with then, so we're onto Tuesday. Things are ramping up towards Brazil as teams start releasing their preview press releases and we start looking at the weather forecasts. Here are some of the things we're talking about.
It's Lou's birthday today! Lou has been commenting on the site since August 2007 and I know that everyone will want to wish her a happy birthday. Today is the day to do it. We're also talking about some F1 related things today, though.
