    Lewis Hamilton + Ferrari = This episode

    Lewis Hamilton + Ferrari = This episode

    Lewis Hamilton will be a Ferrari driver in 2025. We don't usually do straight reaction episodes, but this was big enough that we found time to do that even when Chris had planned to be off in Rome. Find out if Lawrence was witnessing contracts being signed and how many jokes Nate had this week, as well as the way the news came out

    The RB stands for 'rubbish branding'

    The RB stands for 'rubbish branding'

    WARNING: This is a very moan-filled episode, but Visa Cash App RB just seems to set us off in that direction. Chris has a couple of zingers, Nate's joke is deep and meaningful, and Lawrence (without his microphone) finds it very hard to comment on anything other than Charles Leclerc's new deal

    Our 2023 F1 awards show

    For the first time since we last did one, it's a season review where we hand out a few awards. Or we roughly discuss a few topics and don't actually award anything to anyone, while the absolute highlight of the year very nearly gets totally forgotten

    Nate dropped a clanger after his Vegas high

    Nate dropped a clanger after his Vegas high

    Finally getting round to chatting about Las Vegas adventures, which includes probably Nate's coolest story ever, but he has since ruined it all. Chris explains how Gasly tried to kill him, and Lawrence went to Venice with Kimi (not that one)

    Are you Sad-Hoc or Glad-Hoc the season is over?

    Are you Sad-Hoc or Glad-Hoc the season is over?

    Vegas became impossible to record at and then Nate decided he'd rather be in Tampa than Abu Dhabi, but all three are finally able to go over the final race from three different timezones. Chris has a great Mercedes story, and Lawrence really doesn't understand the point of the game in the episode title

    Tweeting rumours and making humours

    Lawrence is definitely here, and it's not just Chris talking about all the gifts he got from being in Mexico, or Nate taking absolute liberties with his 60-second review. They also address *that* paddock rumour (spoiler: there isn't one)

Perplexed.

Great podcast guys. I hope you can answer one question. Are all F1 journalists able to punch so far above their weight as much as Chris? Just how did his relationship with Jess start? Bravo Chris. Perplexing as Jess is intelligent, witty and beautiful. What’s the secret?

GOAT of “F1” podcasts.

Three likeable blokes talking about F1 and everything else - how could this not be amazing? There are so many more serious F1 pods that this offers a refreshing change - case in point, Lawrence was drunk on the first pod I listened to (and it was brilliant). Also, never heard of Nate before this but I now think I want to be best friends with him. Keep up the good work lads - would love to see a live recording one day!

Has the potential to be the G.O.A.T. of F1 related podcasts

I love this pod, you can tell that the hosts are friends in and out of F1, the banter between them is fabulous. A great blend of F1 inside knowledge and just friends shooting the breeze (like you or I would do down the pub).

I found the edit button.

Thanks for the Pad-Hoc mug Chris, this obviously did not at all influence me to update this to a five star review, at all ever.

I still think there is potential for more Pad-Hoc gear, not to generate funds for the hosts, but for us mere fans.

Keep up the good work fella’s. A new section “Guest from the paddock, a random journalist, photographer or team member” maybe ? What would the Pad-Hoc burger contain ? Would there be a vegan option ?
