Feet Up Friday - There's a hole in my track, dear Liza // Recording Feet Up Friday

Published by Christine Blachford

The end of another week brings another round up of all the Formula One action. There have been launches galore, alongside heaps of testing in Jerez - the track which found itself a big ol' hole today that stopped running until it could be patched up. It's been an eventful seven days in the sport that we love so dear, so do settle down and tune in to Feet Up Friday, our attempt at meandering our way through the week's news.

  • Yeah. And you're now on Buxton's radar. (Dunno whether that is good or bad or what?!)

    That was pretty remarkable I thought!

  • How is it that we've had so many FuF's and yet only now I've thought that the slogan for the show should be a take on that brilliant moment from Despicable Me

    "IT'S SO FUFFY!"

  • Yeah. And you're now on Buxton's radar. (Dunno whether that is good or bad or what?!)

    haha. Yeah...awkward!

    That was pretty remarkable I thought!

    I could not believe it.

  • Have to say that it is 'different' for @sidepodcast to be promoting a FuF by not rolling it's eyes at @mrschristine for having 'another' madcap notion.

  • "IT'S SO FUFFY!"

    It's so fuffy I'm gonna diiiie. :)

  • Have to say that it is 'different' for @sidepodcast to be promoting a FuF by not rolling it's eyes at @mrschristine for having 'another' madcap notion.

    A bit of positivity for a change ;)

  • "IT'S SO FUFFY!"

    I'm photoshopping it!

    Now, I didn't say anything about positivity.

  • Evening.

  • Hi Pat.

  • Retro sidepodissues :)

    Hehe. I think we are making progress though. Now we are pre-emptying delays, rather than telling you about them at 8:07pm. Small steps...

  • Looks like Crashed Ice tomorrow will be interesting. A few big names out in the elimination rounds. Check the twitter feed if you want to know.

    Looks like it's 5pm GMT

  • Odd, I'm still getting distortion on the live feed. Never get it on the podcasts.

    I thought I had that last week, might've been my earphones though.

  • #blamepastor

  • Ok, back. Now with chocolate chip cookies!

  • I agree, having shows > minor audio issues.

  • I agree, having shows > minor audio issues.

    Definitely

  • Hugs.

  • Lewis' german is excellent.

  • Call the podcast that!

  • Launchapalooza sounds like a NASA-arranged festival.

    +1 +1 +!

  • Nice launch and nice looking car. :)

  • Mmmm sauber.

    Unveeling.

  • They drove about on little trucks!

  • It's a Purple Red Bull.

  • Another secret podcast. I'm impressed

  • Hey Steven.

  • Microphone stand sporting injury

  • Except you broke youtube!

  • Outside is dangerous

  • I'm reallllly unsure about that RBR livery. I did not like it at all when I first saw it, but I'm still undecided. I like Toro Rosso's so much better.

  • Toro Rosso was worse.

  • It needed the Spice Girls.

    (on delayed video)

  • "When Mic Stands Strike Back"

    This time, it's personal....

  • The Spice Girls were at a McLaren launch a long long time ago

  • Only twice a launch!

  • I'll tell you what Lukeh wants, what he really really wants...

  • I'll tell you what Lukeh wants, what he really really wants...

    He really really really wants a .....

  • 97 from memory. And they all got a free A-Class Merc.

  • It was all very naive from Mercedes understimating the power of twitter and f1 fabs

  • Internet issues... Partnership with Blackberry... Connection?

  • I saw a whole load of tweets with the hashtag, maybe by the time the website worked everyone was bored waiting and went and did something else.. so no tweets

  • And the company that makes Blackberry just changed their name to Blackberry!

  • I had to set up a bunch of Blackberry phones this week for work. Awful little phones, the keyboard thingies are shocking!

  • Blackberries are very popular with teens because they all have to (yes, HAVE TO) be on BBM.

  • Ross Brawn is a Nokia 3310 man

  • And the company that makes Blackberry just changed their name to Blackberry!

    After all this time they figured out Reasearch in Motion is a stupid name

  • After all this time they figured out Reasearch in Motion is a stupid name

    Especially when so much of their time is spent with their data services at a stand still.

  • After all this time they figured out Reasearch in Motion is a stupid name

    Our product isn't going anywhere. Maybe we should change our name!

  • Ross Brawn is a Nokia 3310 man

    I loved my 3210. This wine is nice.

  • There deserve credit for trying something different

  • "The first Mercedes F1 car revealed since 2012"

  • Ask Jeeves disappointingly didn't sponsor anyone

  • Although Minardi Geocities would've been AMAZING

  • We have the show title

    There is a fundle problem with 3D

  • They make a racing version of that gullwing car, it looks amazing. There are some racing at Bathurst 12 Hours tomorrow.

    news.mercedes-ben…hamps-710x420.jpg

  • I know someone with a 3DTV

    ...cineworld.

  • Gee-oh-cities!

  • Although Minardi Geocities would've been AMAZING

    :D

  • Adobe could sponsor Force India and photoshop race results into their favor.

  • Gee-oh-cities!

    That's how Leo says it

  • Gee-oh-cities!

    I'm in that camp.

  • Gee-oh-cities!

    I never thought of the other way to say it. Interesting.

  • Adobe could sponsor Force India and photoshop race results into their favor.

    Or sponsor Caterham and photoshop that nose

  • Gee-oh-cities!

    That's how I always said it.

  • Gee-ocities sounds like some kind of disaster event

    ...which is oddly appropriate.

  • Geo...Cities

  • ...which is oddly appropriate.

    haha

  • Poor toro rosso :)

    I liked the awkward man.

  • Red Bull and Toro Rosso mean exactly the same thing so surely what is appropriate for one is appropriate for the other

  • Toro Rosso didn't even raise a flicker on twitter. I saw no indication that the launch was even happening

  • You put the funk in defunct, Mr. C.

  • It's too bright to be Racing Green

  • Comic-book green.

  • HULK SMASH!

  • HULK SMASH!

    That 's a headline for a FI vs Caterham incident.

  • The chassis does have a similarity

    http://twitpic.com/c16hxd

  • How can you see the front wing while you are closing your eyes to prevent you seeing the nose?

  • It is very similar to Jaguar green but lighter. It is growing on me but I'll wait until I see it on telly.

  • With the way F1 noses are going I think it is time to invent hankies for cars

  • They could have gone with Xbox green.

  • His name is Charles!

  • Pic is the new Petrov?

  • Do all 3!

  • It's all gone quiet

  • We're back

  • I almost refreshed the page.

  • Then Mr C shouted in my ear

  • I always hold my breath during dead-air... has something died?

  • A few second drop-outs

  • I like the green. The nose is hideous.

  • Every time I see the Caterham it is a different colour

  • I always hold my breath during dead-air... has something died?

    me too

  • You were thinking about scores

  • It went quieter than a Taki Inoue appreciation society

  • It went quieter than a Taki Inoue appreciation society

    :)

  • Yes yes yes.

  • I can hear you now.

  • We can hear you

  • I think just dodgy lighting makes the difference

  • you could hum.

  • It was red and yellow and purple and green and olive and something and something and blue...

    Tony and the technicolor Car.

  • I can't say because I'm already over a minute behind, entirely my dying computer's fault.

  • It was a 2-3s pause... Going errrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr would be better than making us panic :P

  • I'm supposed to be working, you guys. #corruptingme

  • Ferrari had a gearbox fire

    https://twitter.c…99979255201284096

  • Adrian sutil's just gonna turn up and be like 'IT WAS ME ALL ALONG!'

    "My plan would've worked if not for you meddling kids!"

  • I had no idea why people were talking about Caprisun

  • its on the front wing.

  • It tastes like medicine.

  • RE FI driver choice: Senna is not in F1 next season.

  • I had no idea why people were talking about Caprisun

    oh, I didn't know what you meant. We say capree-sun. Funny.

  • I had no idea why people were talking about Caprisun

    Oh that!

  • I had no idea why people were talking about Caprisun

    Me neither, I thought he brought Medion and nothing else.

  • They could've at least got Um Bongo

  • Burn!

  • Me neither, I thought he brought Medion and nothing else.

    Medion was his sponsor and was always given as the reasons teams may want him. He has lost the Medion backing though

  • Autosport seemed to think the key point was the guy looking at the hole was wearing a leather jacket

  • I think we are going to be saying its a good thing that Ferrari didn't get rid of Massa this year.

  • massa spent his entire test going 'How awesome is Jenson Button?!'

  • A hole in the track? Oh dear. Sounds like our local roads.

    On circuit choice, maybe Jerez is good for setup and mechanical testing rather than aero?

  • My first prediction for the prediction podcast...

  • I hope not..

  • Backing music bad for editing

  • I think the only things we can really tell are that Marussia are still slow and Mercedes breaks easily.. until yesterday when it didn't

  • On there live blog they mentioned he had a leather jacket

    Then they went on to say they didn't know why the leather jacket seemed important but it did

  • Williams need a Rubens.

  • Will!!!

  • Geez Will!

  • Will!!!

    awww.

    haha

  • That's perfect.

  • Well that's told me then.

  • Then they went on to say they didn't know why the leather jacket seemed important but it did

    hehe

  • Poor Will.

  • Well that's told me then.

    "Will" and SPC - dangerous combo today.

  • I am appalled at myself that you played Under Pressure & my brain heard Ice, Ice Baby

  • I was shouting at Will Power really for looking like cillian murphy

    WILL!!!

    ...POWER!!

  • Bathurst this weekend on RLM. Yes!

    http://gridwalktalk.com/?p=2448

  • All the Will stuff is a bit TFI Friday

  • based on what I've seen of him, G Alert is probably a good bet.

  • Not demoted to 'our other Will', a very good evening indeed.

  • This is all I can think of with the WILL!!! stuff

  • I'm sorry.

  • Ah, if we're plugging, I wrote a thing about UK IndyCar coverage

  • It gave me nightmares!

  • He had scoffed half the grapes

  • High fiving on a segway is very Gob Bluth

  • Mr C just saved himself the cost of a Milky Bar there

    I just had a Lindt white chocolate with vanilla, posh Milkybar

  • Sorry didn't mean to be pushy.

  • I reckon somebody told Will Buxton, word of mouth. Or maybe he's a loyal listener/reader.

  • I need to go out and take pictures of the blizzard while it's calm and beautiful and it won't blow me away. That happens later.

    And it's getting dark.

  • Ah, if we're plugging, I wrote a thing about UK IndyCar coverage

  • Thanks for the show :)

    I think I was meaning that you'd not be able to cut out mini-stumbles from within sections of the Live Show when editing the Podcast... but nevermind ey.

  • Reminds me of Hannibal Lecter...I ate his liver with some grapes...

  • Thanks for the show, nice way to end the week.

  • Yeah, thanks all!!

  • Sauber-esque ending there.

  • Do we want a live thread for Bathurst 12 Hours? Can't remember how popular it was or wasn't last year. I'm not doing a preview. :)

  • ...unless you're good at beat-matching by looking at waveforms

    I think that's what we thought you meant!

    I dunno whether I'll re-listen to check ;)

  • Remember Crashed Ice is in 18 hours 46 minutes 2 seconds

    Just realised that is 4pm. Stupid time for Crashed Ice.

  • I dunno whether I'll re-listen to check ;)

    So, any background music would be on a separate track. Delete the track and it would just be editing like normal, no?

  • Just realised that is 4pm. Stupid time for Crashed Ice.

    GREAT TIME!

  • Do we want a live thread for Bathurst 12 Hours? Can't remember how popular it was or wasn't last year. I'm not doing a preview. :)

    I just looked and apparently there was no thread. My memory is just as weird as Mr C's.

  • Just realised that is 4pm. Stupid time for Crashed Ice.

    Oh god I'm never going to stay awake that early

  • Do we want a live thread for Bathurst 12 Hours? Can't remember how popular it was or wasn't last year. I'm not doing a preview. :)

    If you want to, you totally can. It's just a super easy paragraph these days :)

  • GREAT TIME!

    Just because I got a few time zones wrong doesn't mean you will always be right if you say the opposite of anything I say about time

  • Just because I got a few time zones wrong doesn't mean you will always be right if you say the opposite of anything I say about time

    Hehe.

  • I just looked and apparently there was no thread. My memory is just as weird as Mr C's.

    Normally we do the Bathurst 1000 but not the 24 hours. I haven't seen any of the build up so I literally know nothing about it

  • Just realised that is 4pm. Stupid time for Crashed Ice.

    Perfect although France are playing Wales in the rugby at 5.

  • So, any background music would be on a separate track. Delete the track and it would just be editing like normal, no?

    If you're able to record the vocals separately then :) - I have zero clue about any of this.

    I hope I've not become this season's #BlamePastor or similar.

  • I hope I've not become this season's #BlamePastor or similar.

    Ohhhh Willll :)

    Yes. Mr C has one track, I have another, samples another, music another.

  • I hope I've not become this season's #BlamePastor or similar.

    No one could truly be blamed as much as pastor

    (except steven)

  • (except steven)

    Pastor copied me

    Some say he crashed your blaming party

  • Yes. Mr C has one track, I have another, samples another, music another.

    Ahha. Well that makes a music bed very easy then. I withdraw my objection.

    Reputation is not in grammar, obviously.

  • If you want to, you totally can. It's just a super easy paragraph these days :)

    Ok thanks. Might be fun for a kick around after Crashed Ice if anyone wants to watch cars for a bit.

    Normally we do the Bathurst 1000 but not the 24 hours. I haven't seen any of the build up so I literally know nothing about it

    That's why it'll be fun, all new to us, well that and GT cars being quicker in the twisty bits than the V8s. Although it runs from 8pm to 8am so we might all watch the first half then go to sleep.
