    Mercedes to win again? Another chance for McLaren? More to come from Red Bull? – 2024 Hungarian GP Preview with Andrew Shovlin

    Mercedes to win again? Another chance for McLaren? More to come from Red Bull? – 2024 Hungarian GP Preview with Andrew Shovlin

    Tom Clarkson and Damon Hill are joined by Mercedes Engineering Director, Andrew Shovlin, for F1 Nation’s preview of the 2024 Hungarian Grand Prix.

    Mercedes are on a roll. They’ve won back-to-back races for the first time since 2021. Will they make it three in a row in Budapest, or will Red Bull, McLaren or Ferrari take another win in this unpredictable season?

    Andrew talks about the celebrations after Lewis Hamilton’s sensational win at Silverstone and why the seven-time World Champion was back to his very best, how much scope Mercedes have to continue getting better in 2024, whether they’ll be in the mix for victory again this weekend and why the Hungaroring represents a big test for their car.

    Also on the agenda: have Red Bull reached their peak of development under the current regulations? And what have McLaren learned from missed opportunities in the last four races?

    Lando had the ‘best car’ so how did Max win? – 2024 Spanish GP Review ft Pedro de la Rosa

    Tom Clarkson is joined by Pedro de la Rosa and Argentine journalist Juan Fossaroli in the F1 paddock to discuss why Max Verstappen won the Spanish Grand Prix, despite Lando Norris having what he and Max agreed was the ‘best car’ in Barcelona.

    Also on the F1 Nation agenda: how did Russell not win after sensationally taking the lead into Turn 1? What changed for Lewis Hamilton to have his best weekend of 2024? Will he be concerned by Ferrari’s dip in form? And what can we expect from the next two races of this triple header in Austria and Silverstone?

    Plus, Chloe Chambers tells Tom how she claimed a dominant first victory in round 3 of F1 Academy.

    "How could we have been so dumb?!"

Good Podcast With Slight Bias

Good podcast, includes driver interviews and in depth analysis however I do feel like a lot of the people on the podcast hype and love Daniel Ricciardo way too much and that can be annoying.
