We gamble through the FOTA meeting and what may come of it, the action from the Spanish Grand Prix, and take calls from all three sides of the Brawn GP argument. Yes, there are three. All that and more in this week's F1 Debrief.

Intro

I'm all about the radio now, whilst he just does the numbers.

Good week / Bad week

It's been a good week for circuits, as Barcelona make improvements and Donington get the extension they were looking for. It's a bad week for sponsorship as Brawn get chased by the Terminator, and also a bad week for KERS as it's being dropped all over.

News and views

A quick run through what the teams and FOTA are saying about the budget caps Max proposed last week. It's enough to say that they aren't keen.

The race

Ferrari need to buck up their ideas, whilst Red Bull are catching up to the Brawn guys nicely. Talking of Brawn, we talk to three callers about the possibility of team orders within the team.

Fantasy Racers

I'm now at 58th whilst Mr C sits in 245th. Kathi is leading and streaking away with it, but at least she is keeping Sidepodcast top of the private leagues.

Housekeeping

The Parade Lap has returned, but it won't be hitting the feeds.
