Sidepodcast Hangout - Bridging the gap // How are you filling your three week F1 race break?

Published by Christine Blachford

We're trialling a new concept today, the Sidepodcast Hangout, where you can come and chat about F1 and more. Our first hangout appears on an off-race weekend and will be live for exactly three hours. The F1 calendar seems to be taking an odd shape this year, with bursts of action interrupted by lengthy breaks. This time we have the introduction of mid-season testing to whet our motorsport appetites, but what else are you doing to fill the gap? Holidays, much needed time with the family, catching up with other sports, or spending time chatting with likeminded fans on the web?




  • Well, today I am mostly hiding from the appalling weather!

  • Err, hello?

  • *waves*

  • Well, today I am mostly hiding from the appalling weather!

    Just today? It feels like it's been raining for months

  • Ooh, I made it in time! Afternoon everybody!

  • Today I'm laughing at QPR.

  • Today I'm letting my liver recuperate :)

  • Afternoon

    Well, today I am mostly hiding from the appalling weather!

    I did venture out to mop up the inside of my car!

  • Just today? It feels like it's been raining for months

    Indeed, although this feels like the first day in a while that I had nothing pressing to do and could have done something. Hiding is something, I suppose.

  • I approve of this time choice.

  • Today I'm letting my liver recuperate :)

    You do not do your bad reputation any favours :)

  • You do not do your bad reputation any favours :)

    No smoke without fire

  • Today I am wearing my awesome new Rubens top that Lou got for our 3 year anniversary yesterday. I have a Rubens tshirt!!!

    Perfect for the Indy Car later :)

  • Anyone been watching the BTCC?

  • Today I am wearing my awesome new Rubens top that Lou got for our 3 year anniversary yesterday. I have a Rubens tshirt!!!

    3 years! Awe and then some.

  • Today I am wearing my awesome new Rubens top that Lou got for our 3 year anniversary yesterday. I have a Rubens tshirt!!!

    Do you have a picture of the t-shirt?

  • Perfect for the Indy Car later :)

    very wet in Sau Paulo apparently, could be eventful

  • Anyone been watching the BTCC?

    Yep, good old ITV4

  • Do you have a picture of the t-shirt?

    I'll get my phone :)

  • I'm watching Juventus. Haven't lost a game all season, so we'll definitely mess up today. ;)

  • Yep, good old ITV4

    have I missed anything good, just switched on after MotoGP all day!

  • in excellent news, its only 26 days until the Eurovision final.

    I've heard good things about Sweden but I refuse to listen to any songs before the night.

  • have I missed anything good, just switched on after MotoGP all day!

    first race was kind of ridiculous in how wet it was. Still wet as but been pretty good stuff so far

  • I've heard good things about Sweden but I refuse to listen to any songs before the night.

    YES.

    I'm glad I'm not the only one that does this. It ruins the surprise!

  • I've heard good things about Sweden but I refuse to listen to any songs before the night.

    I feel like I'm the only one who doesn't like it.

  • I've heard good things about Sweden but I refuse to listen to any songs before the night.

    I refuse to listen to any of the songs ever!!

  • I feel like I'm the only one who doesn't like it.

    you are not alone!

  • I refuse to listen to any of the songs ever!!

    Best. Plan. Ever.

  • I like the Latvian entry :-)

  • Best. Plan. Ever.

    you guys are missing out. Eurovision live commenting is the best thing about Sidepodcast.

  • I refuse to listen to any of the songs ever!!

    You Sir are missing out... just ignore a lot of the songs from this year and go straight for... Iceland 2009.

  • Live commenting the semi finals is where the cool people are at :-)

  • I'm glad I'm not the only one that does this. It ruins the surprise!

    I can't even handle the semi-finals, the one year I watched them the final wasn't as fun.

  • You Sir are missing out... just ignore a lot of the songs from this year and go straight for... Iceland 2009.

    was that Lordi?

  • in excellent news, its only 26 days until the Eurovision final.

    *Makes mental note to be outside* :)

  • Ukraine a few years back was the best, mrs doubtfire!

  • was trying to think of a good analogy for sidepodcast hangouts.

    janna actually came up with a great description a few years back. that sidepodcast was like a pub where different groups of people hang out and discuss various (often overlapping) subjects. that analogy fell down because back then the sidepodcast public house never closed of an evening. now it actually holds true.

    now we just need name for the bar.

  • was that Lordi?

    That was Finland 2006. I'm talking about Yohanna....

  • Seems like the headping is working

  • Yohanna is amazing.

  • That was Finland 2006. I'm talking about Yohanna....

    2006? Jeez that was a long time ago!!

  • That was Finland 2006. I'm talking about Yohanna....

    I can't believe you're still so in love after all this time :D

  • now we just need name for the bar.

    Hold it, this is a bar and I'm not drinking today?

    Must be a dream :)

  • well today its 2 months 5 days 17 hours and 52 mins until I leave for Silverstone !! not counting or owt

  • now we just need name for the bar.

    Hmm... Dumboflugel?

  • I can't believe you're still so in love after all this time :D

    She's just... so lovely.

  • Because the Eurovision countdown is on the same app as all my other countdowns I would also like to point out its 79 days til I get on my plane and 84 days til I'm actually in London #coalhole

  • Is anyone else going to Goodwood this year?

  • Hadn't really thought about it yet. Is it in June or July?

    Last few days of June

  • Is anyone else going to Goodwood this year?

    Definitely want to go Sat (need to buy tickets). Just trying to find out if I can get the Friday off work but it's not looking hopeful as a colleague has the day off already & I can't ask her to change as she's getting married the next day.

  • Hold it, this is a bar and I'm not drinking today?

    a virtual bar. a bar in the cloud.

  • Last few days of June

    Well, I'd like to go...trouble is I'm currently unemployed, so may not be able to justify the cost... I'll see closer to the time

    Bar in the Cloud. That could be a name. Better than Slug & Lettuce any day.

  • Definitely want to go Sat (need to buy tickets). Just trying to find out if I can get the Friday off work but it's not looking hopeful as a colleague has the day off already & I can't ask her to change as she's getting married the next day.

    Which semi worked. Now the states who had no live coverage have their live HD back, but the rest of us who got moved to SD are stuck with it :(

  • Advertising appeasement :)

    Indycar always does it, it so they can say start your wngines and get going for the rolling start

  • Anti Roll Bar works well

    Actual anti-roll bars are disappointing visually.

  • Is anyone going to any Olympic events?

  • Is anyone going to any Olympic events?

    How can you afford all of these sporting events? Do you not eat or something?

  • Actual anti-roll bars are disappointing visually.

    Maybe it needs Jaques Villeneuve looking at a flipped BAR?

  • I'm going to an Olympic event!!

    Well, I'm going to look at the Olympic rings in cardiff. and then probably go to greggs.

  • Really, you should have said!

    speaking of, I have just been linked to www.london2012.co…lists_Neutral.pdf on twitter and I wonder if "– Large photographic and broadcast equipment over 30cm in length, including tripods and monopods." under prohibited items includes the size of the lenses. Because 30cm gives you a bit to play with.

    Think I can work with that

    [grabs ruler and 200mm lens]

  • you should go to GB v NZ womens football and cheer on NZ for me.

    apparently only 10,000 tickets have been sold for that.

    I may have to. I can cheer for GB and NZ, then I win either way. Sods law it'll be a draw.

  • Geezz, this Indy race delay schedule is mixing up our hockey time, here in the EST zone!! :(

    Have fun here everyone in the ignaugurations of the Hangout!! :)

  • I may have to. I can cheer for GB and NZ, then I win either way. Sods law it'll be a draw.

  • Is it at Cardiff?

    yep, there's a fair few matches at the millenium stadium

  • Is it at Cardiff?

    yeah its the very first event of the whole Olympics :D

  • I find it very odd it's the london olympics and it's in cardiff

    One of the NZ matches is in Newcastle... just saying....

    Anyway I must go, have fun!

  • I find it very odd it's the london olympics and it's in cardiff

    Did you miss the PR rubbish about it benefiting all of Britain?

  • apparently only 10,000 tickets have been sold for that.

    theres so many football tickets left and i'm not sure that the schedule of matches being out is going to help now that they're back on sale tomorrow. Surely no ones dying to see Korea v Gabon.

  • Matt Jackson is having a bit of a mega day so far in the BTCC but Shedden is looking good too

  • I find it very odd it's the london olympics and it's in cardiff

    Sadly, there are going to be people who think Cardiff is a part of London...They'll get a shock!

    Well yesterday when Lou and myself were in London I commented how London has too many people, Lou responded "it's London!" and my retort was Cardiff is like London and that has no people at all. apparently London is a lot bigger but psshh, only by about 3 or 4 people.

    #naive

    Too soon would be before you knew the days you're in London. I assume that's not the case...

  • Thurs 26th July?

    I thought earlier in the week might be better for Olympic-hating/crowd-hating people because I assume it'll get busier as the week goes on

  • IndyCar start now 4:30!!!!

    This is comedy scheduling.

    The route goes past work, I'll ask to borrow it for a while and send it your way. Postage might be a bit flammable.

  • No I haven't, mr laptop. You're turning into GlaDOS.

    My computer's like that too. In hindsight, linking it to the turret defence system was foolish.

  • It'd be the SPC Opening Ceremony

  • Relay by day, Coal Hole by night :)

    yes looks like it'll be in the area between 9 and 9.30am. Painful.

  • Jason Plato is like BTCC's David coulthard with his love for Louise Goodman

    Nothing has changed that much really. The page threads are the same as they used to be, comments reading down the page. Dashboard is the same, pick your thread in the drop down. Only change is that comments come in at the top now. The /comments page is (or will be) the same as realtime was.

    Hey Pat

  • Hi Pat

  • in summary we've spent the last 4 months making the site usable on mobile devices. but those devices just are not as good as desktop equivalents. we've made it as good as we can right now.

    movable boxes are missing from the dashboard on desktop, i think that is the only thing we have intentionally removed during the changes and we did that because there's a more efficient way of doing things (but we're waiting for chrome and opera to release updates).

    everything else became technically obsolete (realtime) or is the same.

  • I could've been at Thruxton but didn't want to get too wet, but that meant I had to let some dogs out.. I got there and my aunt was still in, she'd sent a text I'd missed. I could've stayed in the warm and dry!

    Thruxton has looked extraordinarily wet today!

    It's just as big of a scandal as johnny depp not informing lou when he was in farnham. They need to inform people of these things!

    But I thought 3D was the future of cinema *cue Kermodian rant*

    my other housemates are my best friends, so i love them to pieces.. however... this one who is here this weekend is not. He's awful!!! typical art/film/annoying student. I can't stand him, tempted to through his HUGE pile of washing up out of the window one of these days too!

  • i ran up to his room shouting 'do you WANT to kill us!!'

    Wow. That's just.. wow. Heard lots of bad stories of housemates from people but that's insane.

  • Glad there at least one responsible person in the house. What would they do without you?

    My male house mate would have almost certainly killed himself by now. in the first week he had a pan fire because he left honey and oil in a pan :/ his response was to put his head in his hands, while me and the girls put the fire out, and turned the alarm off.

  • I would share stories of my flatmate, but I frequently devote my Twitter feed to that. All I'll say is that private education doesn't teach people common sense or manners.

Comments closed to new entries.

We're trialling a new concept today, the Sidepodcast Hangout, where you can come and chat about F1 and more. Our first hangout appears on an off-race weekend and will be live for exactly three hours. The F1 calendar seems to be taking an odd shape this year, with bursts of action interrupted by lengthy breaks. This time we have the introduction of mid-season testing to whet our motorsport appetites, but what else are you doing to fill the gap? Holidays, much needed time with the family, catching up with other sports, or spending time chatting with likeminded fans on the web?

Event start

14:00GMT +01:00
