Hello Sidepodcast fans, it is Tuesday the 9th August 2011. Formula One is currently on 'holiday' for the summer, although some news is still trickling in and here are a few things to tide you over.
Hey, hey, welcome to Monday, hope all is well where you are. Another week begins, and we are right in the middle of the summer break. So far, so good, there's still F1 news trickling in to tide us over, and there's plenty happening elsewhere in the world to keep us occupied until the action starts up again in a few weeks. Here are some of the things I've been perusing...
Hello everyone! I can’t believe it’s Sunday already, this week has just flown by! Fingers crossed the next few weeks pass quickly too so we can get back to some F1. However just because it’s the off season doesn’t mean we don’t have any news or links for you all to enjoy on this beautiful day.
I slept through my planned daily writing last month so now I have 8 weeks of Heikki news to catch up on. Sorry all! A big thank you to Christine for jumping in with some excellent Heikki tweets in my absence too! We’ve had five races since my last post, and sadly three of them ended in retirement. Did you know Heikki hasn’t finished two races in a row for the last seven races?
T-minus 3 weeks until Formula 1, Muse and Doctor Who clash all on the same weekend. Oh my god I may just explode. 3 weeks to prepare but let's make the most of this Friday. Why not come in and enjoy today's daily in the comments? You won't regret it. We have cake. That's right, Jenson. Lots and lots of cake.
Another day, another fortnightly post. We're now in the first week of the summer break as far as the F1 season is concerned but the Sidepodcast community continues unabated. We all watched the Hungarian Grand Prix last Sunday, a track that doesn't normally produce exciting racing and is probably my least favourite track of them all, but was spiced up by the weather and produced some great overtakes and yet another wet-race win by Jenson Button. It seems that once again this year he can produce the goods in the rain where Vettel can't.
Good morning, great citizens of Sidepodcast, it is Tuesday once again. There are tumbleweeds rolling down the roads that are usually filled with the noise of F1 cars; for some reason it was felt that the notoriously workaholic staff of Formula 1 teams deserve a life outside of the paddock and factories, and that would be best served by a mid-season break. Given that it means I have to wait four weeks until Spa, I'm not convinced.
So, the summer break is here. Despite Hungary's reputation for being a dull race, we had quite an exciting one! Vettel proved that he could actually pull off a decent overtake; Heidfeld lost most of his exhaust before his engine blew up; Hamilton actually made a decent apology; Button defied the usual jinx that accompanies significan races to win his 200th Grand Prix.
Would you look at that, last day of July already! The months are just flying by! Today isn't just the last day until we head into the hopefully warm days of August, it's also the last before the 2 and a half F1 summer holidays. I wonder where the likes of Stefano Domenicali, Christian Horner and Martin Whitmarsh, along with the hundreds of others that grace the paddock will be spending their time off?
Hello and welcome to another edition of Friday. On today's show... who's birthday are we celebrating? What famous TV show has managed to get into a video game? And are the rumours true - is there a new member at Sidepodcast HQ? All this and so much more, and a little bit more than than, all in the daily thread!
Hello. The big news on the site at the moment is the ongoing discussion about the future of Daily posts. Do check out Allan McNish's article on FIA Stewarding, and Joe Saward's piece on fluff news at this time of year. I hate the log flume.
Date - the eve of Wednesday 27th July 2011. Sector - Final Third. Destination - Sidepodcast.com. Mission - to write A Daily that will Go Out With A Bang.
Hello Sidepodcast fans, it is Tuesday the 26th July 2011. Two days on from a thrilling German Grand Prix at the Nurburgring, which does seem to produce better racing than the chopped up Hockeinheim. I hope your start to the week has been good, but fear not Tuesdays are generally better than Mondays.
Hello lovely people, it is Monday and this is your daily for today. Doesn't Mark Webber look cold in that picture? The weather in Germany was a lot cooler than we were expecting, although the rain never came. Every time there is never a sign of rain, despite all weather forecasts saying there will be some, I swear off predicting the weather. But every time a race swings by, I start pondering what the weather will be again. It's addictive.
Hey all, hope you’re all okay on this lovely race day, and that your Sunday is full of wonderful things! It is of course time for the German Grand Prix, so why don’t we have some predictions to start the day, unless you’re reading this after the race then well maybe ignore this bit.
Heyyy! It's you! You made it onto the homepage! Well done you. Have a pat on the back. Have a cookie. I had one here for you but it disappeared. It later reappeared. Then I ate it. But hey, it's the thought that counts. The taste, too. But well done you for coming to the homepage and/or reading this on an RSS feed or Facebook. If you are one of those people, shame on you. Also, visit Sidepodcast.com.
Guten tag and welcome to this fortnight's Memorable Moments post, which includes clips from the German Grand Prix, as well as the lowdown on another important sporting event going on at the moment - well, it's important to me anyway. The last few weeks have been like Jekyll & Hyde here in Edinburgh weather-wise. Two weeks ago it was torrential rain and thunder, last week it's been beautiful sunshine and this week we're back to torrential rain and thunder. Global Warming. There, I've said it, can we move on?
