Episode 46 - It's like Fantasy F1 audio waveform

A welcome return for the audio half of Sidepodcast, this first show of 2008 covers some of the news stories that have cropped up over the holiday period. We also introduce a couple of new segments to the show, and as ever, solicit some feedback.


Mobile phone fun, as the new theme tune is uncovered in grand, theatrical style. Or not.

Good week / Bad week

A new part of the show, featuring some of the shorter news items of recent days. This week featuring Super Aguri, Toyota and Autosport International. I'll leave you to guess who fits in which category.

News and views

We start with some thoughts on Williams decision not to launch their 2008 car - is it down to consistency or just because they're boring? Then we cover the ridiculously inane rules the FIA are proposing for the coming season. In fact, we cover them in quite some detail, so be prepared to soak up some serious geekiness. We finish with a quick look at suggestions from the paddock, with Honda's budget cap ideas, and Coulthard's conversations about the wet weather.


A quick update on our plans to cover the launch period. Today the new Ferrari was revealed in all its glory, so you'll hear some first impressions but nothing too detailed - that will come later. Talk turns to F1 Rewind and how we are processing the amazing feedback we received from all corners of the globe. Finally, there's always time to plug the fact that we are up for an award.
