    Singapore GP preview: Who will master the Marina Bay challenge?

    Singapore GP preview: Who will master the Marina Bay challenge?

    After two years off the calendar, the Singapore Grand Prix is back this weekend as Formula 1 returns to the Marina Bay Circuit for the first time since 2019. Tom Clarkson, Natalie Pinkham and Damon Hill explain the unique challenges of F1’s original night race when the drivers will be forced to cope with hot and humid conditions, a tight track and frustration in the cockpit, if they are to come out on top. Touring Car star Rickard Rydell also joins the pod to chat all things F1 – including the junior category rookie who could be Sweden’s next F1 star; and the gang dissect all the big news stories, from what Audi joining means for Formula 1, to the latest moves in the driver market – and make a few predictions for what the race weekend in Singapore will hold for some of F1’s most experienced chargers. And of course, a couple of lucky listeners get to put their questions to the 1996 World Champion in ‘Ask Damon’.

    Max’s dominance, De Vries’s delight and Alpine’s driver dilemma – Triple Header Review

    Max’s dominance, De Vries’s delight and Alpine’s driver dilemma – Triple Header Review

    After a breathless spell of three dramatic races back-to-back, Tom Clarkson, Natalie Pinkham and Damon Hill take a moment to look back at three very different Grands Prix – even if all of them were won by the same driver – and look at how Red Bull and Max Verstappen have pulled away from Ferrari since the summer break. Plus they chat about the mounting pressure on the Scuderia, and ask whether Mercedes will be able to break their duck and win a race before the season is out – and whether it could be George Russell rather than Lewis Hamilton who sees the top step of the podium first. The gang also reflect on Nyck De Vries’s impressive debut last time out at Monza – and where that puts him in the race for a full-time place on the grid for next year. Also on the driver market, they examine Alpine’s options for 2023, and why Daniel Ricciardo seems to have dropped out of the running for that seat. And of course, a couple of listeners get to put their questions to the 1996 World Champion in ‘Ask Damon’.

    Home joy for Max, pitwall pressure + driver moves - Dutch GP Review

    A pulsating Dutch Grand Prix showed the ice-cool thinking and red-hot pace of Max Verstappen and the pressure the F1 pitwall. Red Bull Team Principal Christian Horner and Max Verstappen’s father Jos reflect on a fourth successive victory for the 2022 F1 World Championship Leader, whose lead is now 109 points. If Mercedes or Ferrari had made different strategy calls, could the race have ended differently? Tom Clarkson, Auto Hebdo’s Julien Billiotte, Christian Menath of Motorsport-Magazin.com and Allard Kalff from Viaplay in the Netherlands take a deep dive into the Dutch Grand Prix, how and why Max Verstappen won, and the difficulties F1 strategists face when making big decisions. After missing out on points in Zandvoort, Alex Albon joins the team to look forward to Monza. Plus, the team examine great drives from Fernando Alonso, Lando Norris and Lance Stroll, Ferrari’s aims for the rest of 2022, and the 2023 driver market: what’s next for Alpine, AlphaTauri, Daniel Ricciardo and Mick Schumacher?
