    Episode 308 – Max Verstappen World Champion

    Episode 308 – Max Verstappen World Champion

    There were so many names we could have given this week’s podcast given the controversial nature of the 2021 season finale in Abu Dhabi this past weekend. But we’ve decided to err on the side of caution and not make any references to spineless creatures like jellyfish or any title with an asterisk next to it.

    So the 2021 season is in the books and RedBull’s Max Verstappen has finally got his hands on the World Driver’s Championship (correct at time of going to press at least) after a race that will probably go down as the most controversial end to a Grand Prix that we’ve seen in all the years of F1. This week the 4 of us try and make some sense out of what happened leading up to and including the las 5 laps at Yas Marina where race control did something with the rules to ensure that the race (and the season) didn’t finish behind a safety car and the fallout that’s come from it all.

    We try to go team by team this week, but there was really only 2 teams in it, so much so that nobody noticed Carlos Sainz sneaking into 3rd place until the race had been over for about 10 minutes along with a few of the usual tangents to try and keep our spirits up in the knowledge that F1 is done until next year of course we had to chuck in a Total Shunt from someone whose name Lee was never going to get right so it was left to Paul to make a complete garbled mess of it as well.

    Thanks for all your support this year and we’ll be back in a couple of weeks for a season review. But in the meantime check out our Discord server where you can sign up for our iRacing league as well as joining in with all the chat on there and you can keep in touch on Facebook & Twitter as always.

    Happy Christmas from the 5 of us and all the podcats too

    Episode 307 – Watching From Behind The Sofa

    Episode 307 – Watching From Behind The Sofa

    Are any of us sure what we watched at the weekend? In all the years of F1 I don’t think any of us have seen a race quite like the first ever Saudi Arabian Grand Prix from the Jeddah Corniche Circuit. Max & Lewis came out of the penultimate race of the season level on points but with even more tension between them after various off-tracks and brake tests.

    Luckily for us this week we’ve got help from VirtualStatMan Sean Kelly in sorting through one of the most chaotic races ever in one of the best ever Formula 1 seasons we’ve had. There’s an attempt at the team by team review but lets face it, the main talking point is the Max v Lewis battle for the World Driver’s Championship that hit new levels of attrition and controversy as we head to Abu Dhabi for the season ending decider.

    There’s all the other usual stuff as well with a few tangents and as Sean’s with us, an extra Who’s A Total Shunt for good measure. Thanks as always for your support and once again, apologies for missing last week while Sian & Paul settle in to the new 3Legs towers!

    And while you’re online, check out our Discord server where you can sign up for our iRacing league as well as joining in with all the chat on there during the race and the rest of the week and you can keep in touch on Facebook & Twitter as always.

    Episode 306 – Gives You Whinge

    Episode 306 – Gives You Whinge

    Another Grand Prix and another aero related controversy. This time it was all over the question about some suspect markings on the Mercedes rear wings. Once again the battle between the 2 main antagonists (not the drivers) threatened to overshadow the debut of the Qatar Grand Prix. We needed to look at what’s been going on in a bit more depth, so once again this week we’re joined by our resident technical expert Craig Scarborough

    This week on the podcast we do our usual look back the the most recent race from the back to the front, but with more of a technical slant as Scarbs takes us through how the teams have developed their cars this season (except Haas, who haven’t) and how things are looking for their prospects for next year.

    Bit of a cut down team as well as being a couple of days late this week thanks to work and illness, but after a this weekend’s race we really had to talk about all the F1 issues at the moment ahead of the end of season showdowns in Saudi Arabia & Abu Dhabi next month. Also as we didn’t have chance to do a shunt this week, there’s a competition with an actual prize and you can win a copy of Maurice Hamilton’s new book Murray Walker: Incredible! So listen out for that

    Episode 305 – Winging It (Once Again)

    Episode 305 – Winging It (Once Again)

    Well that was a weekend in Brazil that will be talked about for a long time to come and may not be all sorted yet as the pod comes out. The newly renamed Sao Paolo City Grand Prix had it all from Friday qualifying with added wing poking, disqualifications, recovery drives up and down the grid and a win that nobody expected on Saturday morning, or possibly Friday for that matter.

    This week on the podcast we have a go at unpicking all the events of the last race to feature a sprint in 2021, along with the last race on a circuit or configuration that the teams have actual race experience of too. There’s the usual team by team review along with a load of discussion about the major talking points of the weekend along with trying to shoehorn the news that was available at the time in there. This was all recorded before the Tuesday news of Mercedes requesting a review of the turn 4 incident and Alfa Romeo confirming Guanyu Zhou this morning as well!

    No shunt this week as we were running a bit long, but it’s a 2 hour plus show so you’ll probably not notice! But don’t forget that we’re running a team in Jimmy Broadbent’s Race For Mental Health next month, full details and donations at https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/raceformentalhealth2021

    Episode 304 – Hola Mexico (City)

    Episode 304 – Hola Mexico (City)

    Another race back on the calendar after the madness that was 2020 is the Mexico City Grand Prix (formerly known as the Mexico Grand Prix.) With a new name to reflect that it’s the city rather than the country that’s putting the funding behind it, it’s still at the same circuit and is still going to be a challenge as it’s the highest altitude race of the year (we think.)

    This week on the podcast we take a look at what we think might play out in the Mexican capital where engine power has notoriously been reduced previously due to the thin atmosphere, although the lack of atmosphere is only in the air and not around the circuit as the event itself is always pretty spectacular.

    There’s a load of tangents and bits of news thrown in for good measure too and a very very dubious Who’s A Total Shunt.

    Episode 303 – Erm Murica

    Episode 303 – Erm Murica

    The US Grand Prix is always a major spectacle and this year was no exception as the organisers of the Austin race went all out to make up for missing out on a race in 2020 (damn you Covid.) With all the spectacle and general “American-ness” you can cram into a weekend that you would expect and they certainly didn’t disappoint when it came to the bits that mattered on track as well as all the extras (not sure about the Neil Diamond tribute act and Kool and some of the original Gang though)

    This week on the podcast we do our usual team by team review of this weekend’s race where RedBull once again showed that they are more than prepared to not only take the fight to Mercedes, but beat them at their own game by out-strategizing them when it came to the udercut.

    There’s all the usual tangents as you’d expect and don’t forget there’s a Formula Lee competition running as well, along with Paul and the rest of the 3L4W racing team taking part in Jimmy Broadbent’s Race For Mental Health next month, full details and donations at https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/raceformentalhealth2021
