New Feature - F1 Minute News
« on: September 23, 2008, 08:45:10 PM »
I've teamed up with F1 Minute to bring you the latest headlines from the F1 world in a handy 60 second package. The player is located on our Home Page and the news is updated every weekday.

You no longer need to trawl through pages and pages of news sites, just tune in to GPWizard each day to hear everything you need to know.

F1 Minute is written, produced and presented by Christine Blachford.

Christine began her Formula 1 career working for Sidepodcast, a weekly Formula 1 talk show that sprang into life in late 2006. She writes for numerous online publications including BellaOnline and also presents the ever popular F1 video broadcast Sidepodcast TV.

Try it and let me know what you think.

Seeing as I spend a lot of time on Sidepodcast I am quite familiar with Christine and F1 Minute.  It is definitely worth a listen every day and on rare occasions like race day at Spa twice a day.  Glad to see two of my favourite F1 places on the net getting together.

Christine writes on so many sites you would not believe it and the weekly podcast has been joined by many others during the week.

Excellent, Wizzo! I've just listened to a few of them. First rate!

Eh, Wizzo, now that I've seen Christine's picture, is there any way you could do it as a video feed instead of audio only? ;)

Cos go to and there are videos of Christine all over the site.  However you should know that the disembodied male voice who is known only as 'me' is her husband.

Disembodied is right...I thought they were using him just for fun a couple of times, but I really wish she would go back to using him as her tech and keep the mic's away.

I've been listening to F1 minute as a podcast for months (pretty much ever since I got my iPod Touch in May).  It's sort of a re-hash of what I read on F1 Live, but of course she rams it into a minute a day which is impressive in itself. 

I don't know why they both kind of sound not terribly interested in what they are doing though.  Could use a bit of excitement in their voices when there is stuff to be excited about (Spa for example).  Sidepodcast is a pro site though - great track previews and stuff.
