An Aside with Joe - The absolutely greatest thing since toasted, fried bread audio waveform

Joe Saward returns from an extended summer break to bring us all the news from the Formula 1 world. With the 2012 calendar confirmed we discuss alternating motor races, a village with a happy atmosphere, taking F1 to Le Mans and China's giant paddock Pac-Man.

Further topics on the agenda include Lewis Hamilton behaving oddly, a lack of professional explainers, proving anything and everything with statistics and why Kubica suggested anyone but Heidfeld.

Additionally, Joe puts his cap on backwards in honour of Swizz Beatz and Puff Pastry, justifies the need for nearly-men, before re-living a hot lap around Chimay.

All this and much, much more in this post-Belgium episode of An Aside with Joe.
