Selection box - New Year’s resolutions across the paddock

Getting back to business with an upcoming race to consider

Sidepodcast: Selection box - New Year’s resolutions across the paddock

by Christine

It's a new year and that means we can look forward to a new year of racing fun and games, kicking off with Daytona this month. Fernando Alonso is upping sticks and taking part in another extra-curricular series in 2018, this time heading to Daytona at the end of the month. There are a couple of links about that amongst the bumper selection below, as well as reviews and resolutions, Roborace and more.

It's Christmas week and that means it's hard to concentrate too much on full length articles about motorsports that have long since calmed down for the winter. That being the case, I have a selection of links for you today that are predominately audio and video. A few wordy posts have snuck in, but settle in for some audio/visual entertainment as you snaffle another mince pie.

It's almost time for the festive holidays, and that being the case, I wanted to provide you with a handful of great links to peruse whilst waiting for your turkey dinner to be ready or avoiding conversation with forgotten aunts and uncles. Instead of joining the festivities, have a look at the below selection of choice cuts from around the motorsport web - from the ongoing debate about grid girls, through a disappointing message from the lawyers, to a nice end-of-season quiz.

Usually, when I curate these Selection box links, I like to group together topics that complement each other, and split up the post into various sections of conversation. However, this time is a little bit different for a variety of reasons. Some motorsport seasons have finished, some are just getting started. Some of these links are older, some are brand new, and above all that, we're delving into a few different series rather than just plain old Formula One.

The first round of the 2017/18 Formula E season is mere days away now, and you may have noticed that we're gearing up to go all in on the electric racing series this year. We've got a few posts on Sidepodcast already, and a few podcast episodes too, but there are people far more knowledgable than us out there creating great content. So, if you're knew to Formula E and want a quick start guide, have a perusal through the below links to get fully up to speed for the future of motorsport!

Formula One meets NASA in Texas

Sidepodcast: That's Max, walking on the moon

by Christine

When I went to Texas a couple of years ago, there were two things I knew I had to do before I left - go to a baseball game, and visit the Johnson Space Center in Houston. It looks like Mercedes and Red Bull have gone to the US this weekend with the same thoughts in mind, as their drivers were spotted hanging out at NASA, and generally having a good time. There are no words to describe the video of Max Verstappen in simulated low-gravity, and it just keeps on getting better from there.

Here it is, then, the summer break that splits the Formula One season not quite in half with an enforced rest. Some greet the break with enthusiasm - a moment to take a breath and consider what has happened whilst resting and preparing for the final push to the title. Others can't wait for the racing to return. The following links might help to entertain, no matter which side of the fence you fall on!

You’d be forgiven for forgetting we’re rapidly heading into the summer break for Formula One, as there is news hitting the headlines constantly. If it’s not building up to this weekend’s race, it’s more fallout regarding the halo cockpit protection, and if it’s neither of those things, then it’s Sauber and Honda splitting up, or the pressure the sport is coming under from other motor racing series’.

Sidepodcast: Selection box - Two clear sides to this argument

by Christine

The British Grand Prix weekend gave us plenty to think and talk about, with the live in London event still causing a stir, the race under-delivering give or take a couple of surprising laps towards the end, and the huge swing in the championship battle. Along with that, we've got the recent announcement that the halo is, after all, the chosen cockpit protection device to be put into practice next season. This year is nothing if not packed, so here are a few links from the past week to keep you up to speed.

Now, you saw it, right? The Azerbaijan Grand Prix and everything that came with it? Well, would you believe it, there are some opinions about the Vettel and Hamilton incident that need to be shared. I've got a few links to start with on that subject this week, but then we move on to other topics as it's not all about those two drivers, much as you might think it is right now.

Naturally, this week's selection of links from around the motorsport web have a handful of discussions about Fernando Alonso's appearance in the Indy 500. The good news is that he's done it, he did brilliantly, and he's coming home in one piece. The bad news is that we now have to ponder what the fall out is from everything that happened this past weekend.
