Yesterday was a good day in Sidepodcast Towers, and whilst I would usually be dreading the appearance of Thursday tomorrow, instead I am still happy about the great Tuesday we had yesterday. Let's see how long this lasts.
It is Lucas di Grassi's birthday today. The Brazilian is 25 years old today, and must be sad that the factories are all shut, because it means he won't get a cake. Still, with so many new teams turning up next year, does di Grassi have a shot at a race seat?
We've reached and passed the mid-point of the summer break, which means it's all downhill from here. Things are quiet with the factories closed, but we are still managing to keep ourselves amused.
Sunday rolls around, and it's worth noting for anyone wondering that there won't be a live show tonight. However, we'll be around all day for comments, so you can still come and talk to us.
According to Wikipedia, it is Andy Priaulx's birthday today. What's he up to these days? I mean, probably he'll be celebrating today, but in racing terms? Anyway, here are some of the things we're discussing at the moment...
It's Friday at last, and that means we're heading into another weekend. We know that Jon is busy this weekend, and will most likely return sans voice, but what are you up to? Let us know.
Here we are again, horrible Thursday, but I won't let it get me down, and neither should you. There's plenty going on to distract from what day of the week it is, so let's get right down to the F1 stuff.
We are halfway through the week now, and it seems as though things are getting nasty in the world of F1. Piquet's having a go at Renault, Ferrari are having a go at Williams, who's next? Meanwhile, here at Sidepodcast, we're being nice to each other!
Morning all. Today is the day that Dom Perignon supposedly invented champagne way back in 1693. I wonder what the podium ceremonies would be like if that had never happened. We have replacement champagne these days but what if the bubbles had never been invented in the first place?
Hello one and all! I have missed you, and I have missed writing these little posts every night. We have only been away a few days but we are back... sort of. Check out our explanation of what went wrong for us last week, and what we're doing to try and fix it here.
The ever-lasting hiatus continues as Sidepodcast Towers takes a break from all things Formula One. Here is your daily thread, that was written days in advance, so will contain no information of relevance.
Wow, it's a new month already. Hasn't time flown this year? Unreal. By now you'll know that we're on hiatus, so this is your pre-scheduled daily post to keep the conversation flowing.
We are still on hiatus, but it's a new day which means it's time for a new (scheduled in advance) daily post. I wonder what topics you are all talking about.
Yes, it's all true. Sidepodcast is on hiatus. This daily thread is here to keep you all occupied whilst Mr C and I take a break from anything Formula 1 related, which includes this site.
We're midway through the week now, and apparently it is National Anthem Day in Romania. I don't quite understand why an anthem needs a day dedicated to it, and I can only imagine that it means the song gets played a lot.
We are at Tuesday already, which means it's time for another daily post, and that means more links and news to keep you going. The good news is that this weekend's Debrief is edited, so if you haven't already, you can hear the condensed version.
We're headlong into another week now, and facing several of them without races. For us here at Sidepodcast Towers, this is good as we can get round to all those things "on the list" that have been put off for breaking F1 news. However, we will endeavour to keep you entertained during the summer break.
Of course today all our thoughts are with Massa, and we're hoping for more good news updates from the hospital. However, it is still race day and we should still enjoy what we can of the Hungarian Grand Prix.
Qualifying day is always the best one of the weekend here at Sidepodcast Towers in terms of F1 action, and then Sunday is better for podcasting fun. However, I get ahead of myself. Having seen some Free Practice laps today, are we in a better position to know what to expect?
Friday is here, and that can only mean it is Free Practice day in Hungary. Now Free Practice is usually the least exciting day of the race weekend, and if you multiply that by being at the Hungaroring, we're not expecting much.
