    Pretty In Pink - Can Vettel take Racing Point to the next level?

    ‘Flat Chat’ is back for November alongside a new edition of GP Racing magazine. Stuart Codling is joined by Ben Anderson and Mark Gallagher to ask if Sebastian Vettel can propel the new Aston Martin towards the front of the grid. We look into Renault’s on-track renaissance. A timely feature because immediately after we’d written and designed it, Daniel Ricciardo scored Renault’s first podium since its return as a manufacturer in 2016. We talk about McLaren’s plans to sell and then lease back its factory. And we interview Kimi Raikkonen, who has now started more grands prix than anybody else. Spoilers: he’s not impressed.

And as the Williams family bows out of Formula 1, we explain why there should be no sadness around their incredible journey.
