Podium or Pits is Badger’s weekly guide to what’s hot and what’s not in Formula One. Stay tuned for all matters F1, including online F1 gaming, commitment with Bernie, small businesses winning large competitions, sexism with Bernie and True Grit with Mark Webber.

It’s probably not Grand Prix 1, 2, 3 or 4, but, you know, it could be fun – Web-based motorsport gaming? Yes please.

Apparently you work your way up the motorsport heirarchy, eventually arriving in F1 or NASCAR (which, to be fair, we’re not sure is the “ultimate challenge”).

According to the blurb you have to “listen to our drivers – winning isn’t just about speed and reactions, it’s about understanding the technology and how Mobil 1 keeps engines running at their peak.” Not quite sure what this will involve. Something about oil, probably.

Like death, taxes and penalties for Lewis Hamilton – That’s right, another one of life’s inevitabilities has struck again: Bernie’s getting married.

And, as is de rigueur with aging billionaires, his bride to be is only the small matter of 46 years younger than him.

We’re sure it’s his sparkling personality.

P.S. Tamara’s not going.

Are you a small business? Look this way  – You can enter a competition with Vodafone to put your logo on the McLaren cars at the British Grand Prix, which is pretty nifty. The information we’ve got isn’t exactly the most clear, but it appears you have to have Vodafone phones for your business and sign up for their VIP service online.

Last year’s winners were Swimhut.com.

To be fair, this could have been a lot worse – While it feels a bit rich for The Sun, albeit their Scottish scion, to be criticising someone for being sexist, we do feel that given Bernie’s track record this could have been a lot worse.

Referring to Scottish racing driver Susie Wolff, he said:

If Susie’s as quick in a car as she looks good out of a car, she’ll be a huge asset.”

Word association with Mark Webber – Russell Ford, designer of Minimal Movie Posters has had a crack at a Mark Webber poster on the theme of True Grit.

To be completely honest, POP prefers some of Russell’s earlier work. But what do we know? And that’s a rhetorical question.
