I managed to go four days without mentioning the Lewis Hamilton hype.

Christine: Hi everyone, I've just been to the shop to pick up this, Autosport commemorative issue 14-page Lewis Hamilton special. So let's have a look at what we've got in here. Race report, Lewis' career in pictures, like we hadn't seen that already, what Ron Dennis thought, what Lewis thinks, what Lewis' dad thinks, what Jackie Stewart and Stirling Moss think about it. Oh, and by the way, Robert Kubica had a crash. [screenshot of magazine - small picture]

I don't know if it's just that I've been really good at avoiding the media, or if there hasn't been as much as we expected, but all I've seen is on Monday morning my neighbour's newspaper was lying against his front door, and it wasn't even the headline, it was on the front page. Lewis Hamilton, Britain's Greatest Hero, Newest Talent, all that stuff. And also they said it on Radio 1, which I was only listening to to hear if they said it because they usually are all about the football. But they talked about it on the News and Sport, so that was good.

Lewis is going to be at Goodwood, as we know. It's going to be absolutely manic. I can't believe how quickly Goodwood has come upon us, it seems like only 5 minutes ago that we were there last year and now it's almost time again. I'm so excited, we're gonna be there all three days. It's gonna be really good, although I have just realised that I wanna wear a Sidepodcast t-shirt for three days but I only have one. Yea.
