    The Autosport Podcast is coming live from our temporary studio in the GP Racing Fan Village. OK, we'll admit it, we're in a marquee which looks like it's normally used for wedding receptions! Situated on the outside of the Maggotts/Becketts complex, Stuart Codling and Matt Kew have hot-footed it from the paddock to join Martyn Lee for a special edition of the show.

    Canadian GP Review - with Luke, Jess and Matt

    Canadian GP Review - with Luke, Jess and Matt

    Round 9 of the Formula 1 World Championship saw Max Verstappen extend his championship lead as his main rivals faltered – teammate Sergio Perez retired with mechanical failure and Charles Leclerc managed fifth from a back row grid slot due to engine penalties.  Verstappen led home Carlos Sainz by just 0.993 seconds, who pushed him all the way to the line for the final 16 laps following a late safety car caused by Yuki Tsunoda hitting the wall on pit exit. Lewis Hamilton said he feels ‘young again’ after his third place finish and a visit to the podium for the first time since Bahrain.


    Host Martyn Lee is joined by Luke Smith, Jess McFadyen and Matt Kew to discuss whether Ferrari had any chance of ending Red Bull’s 6-race winning streak in Canada.  Could Sainz have made a one-stop strategy work for their first win since Australia? And with rivals talking up Mercedes’ pace today, did they finally unlock some secrets of the W13, or is that just mind games from the others amid the FIA’s potential regulation change to stop the cars bouncing.

    Canadian GP Practice - with Matt Kew

    Matt Kew joins Martyn Lee to analyse the first two practice sessions for the Canadian Grand Prix. Formula 1 is back in Montreal for the first time since 2019, with a severe weather warning arriving shortly after the teams arrived in the paddock.

    With the ever present threat of rain, the first practice session was busier than usual with teams and drivers maximising track time to try different setups and scenarios. However the rain stayed away throughout the second session, which saw both Ferrari and Red Bull quick on the low fuel runs.

    The long race pace was good for the Red Bull of Verstappen, whilst his teammate Perez was a second off the pace, something which Christian Horner put down to setup differences between driving styles.

    Grid penalties are already becoming a topic after just 8 full weekends of running, as the Alpha Tauri of Tsunoda will start from the back of the grid due to taking a complete set of Red Bull powertrain components. The big question remains over Ferrari, and whether Leclerc will take the pain of a grid penalty here, at a track where passing is possible if you have the pace.

Like the refreshed format

Ariana is a breath of fresh air, great to hear some different voices and much preferred to Alex’s mumbling (I can barely tell what he is saying)... keep up the good work and ignore the miserable old gits complaining :)

Mediocre

I subscribed for in-depth analysis of races and F1 news and developments - just like the magazine/website. Instead there’s unnecessarily long questions and links from one presenter and a presentation style reminiscent of Harry Enfield’s “Smashie and Nicey”. The latest episode reviewed the new on-screen graphics from F1 TV! Seriously? Where’s the insight from the pitlane or analysis of the newest technological innovation? At least Luke and Alex stick to the subject at hand and sound far more natural and knowledgeable when they speak. Thankfully there’s better F1 podcasts out there.

Needs a shake up

What’s happened Autosport? This is quickly becoming the worst motorsport podcast. It’s not been the same since all the top journalists left and started The Race. It’s scripted to the point listeners can tell it’s literally being read out from a script. It’s lost it’s professionalism and quality of content. The latest podcast on ‘Rating the best drivers of the century so far’ is an absolute joke, you can’t just have one guy reading out a load of stuff for 24 minutes!
