Christine: So this is my second Sidepodcast Diary. I'm on my way home from work. Today I've been thinking a lot about Kubica's crash. It was a huge crash, wasn't it? I've never seen a crash that big before. Mostly, I'm thinking, you know, I'm sure I'm not the only one that sort of likes the occasional incident in Formula 1. You know, like when Massa caught fire, it was like, wow, that's so cool. But this incident was not cool. I mean, it was seriously, could have... He's lucky to get away with a broken, or sprained ankle, whatever it is. So I'm thinking where is the line between, you know, an accident that you want to see and one that you really, really wouldn't wish on anybody. I wonder.

I also think it's really funny that Anthony Davidson said that a groundhog got in his way, or a marmot, or whatever. We were kind of ribbing him, saying how rubbish he'd been but turns out it wasn't really his fault. That's pretty much all I've been thinking about today. I'm headed home now so I can check my news, find out if Kubica's okay, if there's been any other update on his status, and if anyone else has blamed their poor performance on small rodents. Maybe a rabbit, or a mouse. See you later.
