    Opening Track: Calvin Harris – Feels



    Woah boy. We thought back-to-back races at the same track could be boring and we were proved wrong thanks to tires giving up the ghost. This week I dive into tires and explain just what the heck we saw at both British GPs and how it may affect the upcoming Spanish GP.



    In other news I touch on an announcement by the FIA to limit qualifying engine “Party Modes” and I’m now proudly blogging for CMC Motorsports!

    Opening track: Morcheeba – The See



    A bunch has happened in the last couple of weeks with respect to changes coming to F1 in 2021. Cost caps, technical regulation tweaks and more so I thought I’d break it down for you.



    Not to worry, I’ll be back just before the season (hopefully?) kicks off prior to the Austrian GP to get you Race Ready.

Incredibly helpful

Like a lot of people I started following Formula 1 after the Netflix series and considering I don't even drive and grew up at a time when my brother was always sent to learn about cars with our Dad while I, the girl, had to help with all the housework, I really know very little about cars or racing. The Netflix series was obviously a great jumping off point, and I've been watching and reading as much as I can, but definitely this podcast has been the most helpful to me so far.

Thanks so much for explaining everything so clearly and covering a lot of the history. It's really enhanced all the races I've been watching.
