Slow

This week we discuss the merits of a potential new FIA president, talk about Rubens' rant at his team, and wonder why it took Webber so long. Plus, voicemails from Goodwood, and a Fantasy Racers update.

Intro

It's all blah, blah, blah, blah. I want to get on my plane and go home.

Good week / Bad week

It's been a good week for Spanish fans and race fans in general, as Alonso is going to Oviedo, but won't be going to Fuji anymore. It's been a bad week for Force India and their motorhome, plus that weird rollercoaster at the Nürburgring.

News and views

The FIA could be in trouble about how they chose the teams for next year, but it's okay because the saviour of the FIA Mr Vatanen is definitely standing for the presidency in October.

The race

We talk more about qualifying than the race itself, as all kind of good things happened during the early sessions of the weekend. However, as usual, it was a tale of two teams with Brawn going head to head with Red Bull, and Webber coming out on top.

Fantasy Racers

There are lots of great team reports still coming in from Fantasy Racers players around the globe. We also discover that Mr C is falling backwards the more he tries.

Feedback

A few emails covering International Sidepodmeetups, the state of driver choices for USF1 plus a new voice in the press conference. We also hear some excited people at Goodwood.

Housekeeping

There's a quick update on our Sidepodscience experiment - it's not going well, and we decide what to do next week.
