    Bonus Episode – Ford v Ferrari: Formula 1 Explained

    Opening track: Greta Van Fleet – Highway Tune



    It was movie night over at our place so we saw Ford v Ferrari. (Legit it may be the 4th movie we’ve ever seen together.) Is it a cinematic masterpiece? No. Is it fun? You betcha. Go see it, then give a listen as we talk about LeMans, the rivalry between Ford and Ferrari, what the movie got right, and what was hugely glossed over.

    F1 A to Z: Women in Motorsport with WSeries driver Sabré Cook – F101: Formula 1 Explained

    Opening track: Wax Tailor – Que Sera



    I’m super excited about this one as I’ve got a special guest for you, WSeries racing driver Sabré Cook.



    Sabré grew up karting, pursued a mechanical engineering degree, won a coveted spot in the Infiniti Engineering Academy where she’s now working for Renault’s F1 team as a composites engineer and somehow managed to find time to race competitively in the inaugural WSeries season in 2019. She’s on the hunt to improve in the coming 2020 season where WSeries will add two races to the calendar. She also shared her experience at the 2019 United States Grand Prix where she was on site for the weekend for Infiniti.



    Have a listen and then head over to sabrecookracing.com to find all her social accounts to follow.

    F1 A to Z: Team Dynamics, the Tow, the return of the quiz, and a special guest host! – F101: Formula 1 Explained

    Opening track: Ice Cube – It Was A Good Day



    I planned to cover so much more (as you’ll hear in the introduction) but my special guest host is so good at getting me talking that we ran for nearly an hour on just two topics! We’ll have to do another T episode at some point I guess.



    Also, as we wind down the A-Z we’re thinking of how else we can cover Formula 1. Let me know your thoughts at feedback@f1explained.com or over on Twitter
