Sidepodcast: Up for promotion

by Mr. C

One of the trickiest challenges we've long struggled with at Sidepodcast HQ, is the promotion of feature length podcasts in the social media era. With shows averaging an hour in length and no logical means of splitting them up, audio remains a tricky medium to generate buzz around.

We're starting to see F1 faces creeping from their winter hibernations and getting themselves ready for the season ahead. We've had three teams participating in winter testing, the announcement of a handful of launch dates, plus some engineering department changes up and down the grid. For fans at home, it's simply a matter of waiting for the fun to begin, and here are a few links to while away the hours whilst you do so!

It's 2016, we're tentatively opening the curtains to a brand new year and a new season of F1 racing, and that means people are starting to talk, and more importantly write, about this year's sporting endeavours. Selection box makes a welcome return to highlight some of the little gems you might have missed over the last few days, this time including some thoughts on champions, a look at key designs from 2015, and a glance back even further at some old time liveries.

It's New Year's Eve, a day when you can safely look back on the year just gone, and prepare yourself for the one ahead. Here at Sidepodcast HQ, we are looking forward to 2016 because it can only be better than the twelve months that preceded it.

The 2016 driver line up is a familiar one, with few changes from last year's roster of names and faces. The brand new Haas F1 Team have allowed for two more drivers to make the step up (or back) to F1, with Esteban Gutiérrez returning to the sport after a year as Ferrari's test driver. He joins Romain Grosjean at the new team, with the Frenchman leaving behind Enstone for the first time in his F1 career. Jolyon Palmer moves up to partner Pastor Maldonado for the new season.
