    Rowdy Arabia, Michael Messy - 2021 Saudi Arabia GP Review

    Rowdy Arabia, Michael Messy - 2021 Saudi Arabia GP Review

    OMG! It's happening! Lewis Hamilton & Max Verstappen will arrive at Abu Dhabi on equal points. It's the 'perfect' setting for Formula 1 and we have to ask - did the FIA have a role to play in this?

    Whilst celebrating Max Verstappen's almost pole lap for the 2021 Saudi Arabia Grand Prix, one has to ask, did Verstappen-Red Bull Racing make it tougher for themselves in Saudi Arabia? Is this 'deal or no deal' role of the FIA a normal one? Would you rate Verstappen's driving as fair? All of this and more in this weeks' much-awaited episode of the Inside Line F1 Podcast.

    Jeddah Jeopardy + 5 Things To Watch For - 2021 Saudi Arabia Grand Prix

    Jeddah Jeopardy + 5 Things To Watch For - 2021 Saudi Arabia Grand Prix

    'Howdy Arabia?', yeah, Soumil was in a crazy mood whilst recording this episode of the Inside Line F1 Podcast. We hope that along with 'speed', 'human rights' is also the buzzword this weekend. 🙃

    The 2021 Saudi Arabia Grand Prix will be held at the Jeddah Corniche Circuit, a circuit that was built in record time. In fact, it was only on the Thursday before the race that the FIA homologated the circuit. 

    Governance aside, this high-speed & narrow racing circuit should entertain us. After all, the barriers are just where they should be for a street circuit. There are 27 corners - so you (and we) are pardoned for goofing them up. What else?

    79% throttle, track position, DRS zones, high grip, Mclaren & then the banked Turn 13 - we expect these to be the key talking points through the weekend. Tune in!

    The Wolff & Horner Show - 2021 F1 Season

    The Wolff & Horner Show - 2021 F1 Season

    The 2021 Formula 1 Season hasn't just been about Red Bull Racing vs. Mercedes or Max Verstappen vs. Lewis Hamilton. It's also been about Christian Horner vs. Toto Wolff.

    We reckon that EVEN IF the Verstappen-Hamilton title battle comes to an end, the Wolff-Horner show might just continue for years to come.

    In this Pits to Podium segment of the Inside Line F1 Podcast, Soumil and Kunal look back at some of the most-feisty moments between Wolff-Horner. Their pot shots have been about track limits, disqualifications, front wings, rear wings, tactical fouls & a lot of other stuff. In fact, is there any part of the other's car they've not brought up for public scrutiny? Remember the recent 'score marks' comments from Horner?

    It's race week for the inaugural 2021 Saudi Arabia Grand Prix - and we'll be back with our race preview in a few days. Till then, sit back & enjoy the 'Toto Wolff & Christian Horner' show in Formula 1 & on the Inside Line F1 Podcast. Tune in!

    In this Pits to Podium segment of the Inside Line F1 Podcast, Soumil and Kunal discuss Lewis Hamilton-Mercedes' advantage over the rest of the field. Why aren't Red Bull Racing-Max Verstappen worried at their pace deficit? If they're worried, they're definitely not expressing it in public - apart from Christian Horner's crass statements every now and then, of course. 

    What happened to the Mclarens? And how did the AlphaTauri drivers not score despite starting in the top-10? Alpine's fantastic strategy for Fernando Alonso, Sergio Perez's charge & yes, the tyre bursts in Qatar. We discuss them all. Tune in!

    Can Mercedes Sustain Pace? 5 Things To Watch For - 2021 Qatar Grand Prix

    Can Mercedes sustain the monstrous pace they showed in Brazil last weekend? We think that's the more pertinent question to ask than to wonder if Red Bull Racing can strike back.

    It's a new Grand Prix venue for everyone this weekend - a first for the 2021 Formula 1 season!

    And of course, do Mercedes actually have the 'right to review' an incident that wasn't investigated by the FIA whatosever? Yes, we're referring to the lap 48 incident between Max Verstappen and Lewis Hamilton. Tune in!

    How Scary Is Hamilton-Mercedes' Turn Of Pace - 2021 Brazil GP Review

    Should Red Bull Racing and Max Verstappen be worried at Mercedes-Lewis Hamilton's turn of pace in the 2021 Brazil Grand Prix? In fact, should Formula 1 be worried with Mercedes looking ominously quick?

    In this Pits to Podium segment of the Inside Line F1 Podcast, Soumil and Kunal hope that the Formula 1 title doesn't get decided before the season-ending race in Abu Dhabi. The irony is that after every race, the feeling has been that one team-driver would run away with the title only to see the rival team-driver strike back harder in the following race. Let's hope this trend continues till the last lap of the 2021 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix!

    Also, has Ferrari pulled away for good from Mclaren? Just how much better are Hamilton-Perez compared to Bottas-Perez? Tune in to for our key talking points from the 2021 Brazil GP, a Lewis Hamilton overtaking fest.

Some thoughts

The humor paired with sports analysis is excellent! Some of their critiques of DTS are valid, but it is to the point now where they are turning off new North American fans to the pod as a result. Also, the audio quality sometimes is catastrophic.
