    Canadian GP Review 2022

    Canadian GP Review 2022

    Oh Canada. We got a wild Checo in the woods. A wild Fernando Alonso on the front row. A Lewis Hamilton comeback (in the worst car ever btw). Appalling pit stops from McLaren. Brilliant drives from Charles Leclerc (P19 > P6 > P12 > P5) & Hometown Hero Lance Stroll (P17 > P10). And an epic battle for 1st between Carlos Sainz & Max Verstappen. This is the most entertainment Canada’s produced since Justin Bieber! Let’s un-box box the Canadian GP!

    Azerbaijan GP Review 2022

    Azerbaijan GP Review 2022

    Baku is always a wild ride. Perhaps a little too wild (Lewis, how’s your backside?). We got battles galore. And three more Ferrari power unit failures (but who’s keeping score). George is straight up Mr. Consistency. And McLaren is back (give it up for mutual efficiency ✔️). But best of all, Pierre Gasly finished P5! But who cares about that? Liked by Pierre Gasly 💓  has blown up worldwide! We chat about all that & more, so let’s un-box box the Azerbaijan GP!

The makings of something great

Audio quality is an issue. Vocal fry is perhaps a bigger issue. These ladies are smart and have good information and insights. Unfortunately, they don’t seem to trust their own skills and too often end up in nervous self deprecating giggles.

Mason Plumlee ,

totally delightful

My favorite f1 podcast! And one of my favorite sports podcasts in general. Hannah and Rachelle cover all you need to know without the self-important braggadocio of most sports commentary, presenting a fuller picture of politics, culture, and the emotional life of sports than you’ll find anywhere else. Love listening in to this conversation every week! Doo-doo-doo.

Giggle supporters

I find Hannah and Rachelle’s presentation, vocal fry, giggles and all, refreshing specifically because they are not professional podcasters. It’s like talking about f1 with knowledgeable and fun girlfriends. I’ve listened to many other f1 podcasters but they are the only ones I’ve heard who analyze the drivers social media presence. There are many nice touches, like talking about the food they’ll eat the match the country of the upcoming race.
