Episode #295: Desert Storms (MotoGP 2021 Qatar/Doha Reviews)
To catch up with MotoGP, we decided to put BOTH weekends into one big podcast to watch. In it:
We talk Yamaha vs Ducati, as while the latter broke speed records and lap records, but both times round, it was the factory riders of Maverick Vinales and Fabio Quartararo that took a win each, even if Johann Zarco hit 225mph on Saturday, and Pecco Bagnaia and Jorge Martin took shock pole positions!
We had Sam Lowes win a pair of very different and tense Moto2 rounds, and Pedro Acosta won a Moto3 race FROM THE FRIGGIN' PITLANE. HE'S 16, and WE FEEL OLD AF. Also, FIGHT CLUB!
Episode #294: Overdrive (2021 Bahrain Grand Prix Review)
Well... That wasn't what we expected, eh?
2021's F1 season opener at Bahrain ended up being a surprise classic of the era, with Lewis Hamilton genuinely on the back foot for most of the weekend. But he still took advantage of a damaged Red Bull, and some superior strategy from his Mercedes team to take win Number 96 of his legendary career.
We also talk about the track limits mismanagement heard around the world as Turn 4 became a figure of ridicule for the viewers and teams, as a change from Race Direction... Didn't look great. We also review F2's season opener, as it was a big weekend for the rookies, with Liam Lawson and Oscar Piastri impressing with wins, while Guanyu Zhou took the feature race!
Episode #293: The 2021 MotoGP Season Preview
It's a bit close to the mark, but right before the season starts in Qatar, here's the gangs full Preview of MotoGP's 2021 Season in Qatar. It includes talk on Joan Mir, the sport's almost forgotten reigning World Champion and Suzuki's quiet test. We have Yamaha with an incredibly fast, but volatile package and Fabio Quartararo making the jump over. Ducati's ultimate high speed package with a big reshuffle in the rider department. And the big question... Is Aprillia real? Oh, sorry, is Marc Marquez coming back?
All that, and a review of IMSA's 12 Hours of Sebring included!

In our 140-minute special F1 Season Preview edition of Motorsport101's #SZNPREVSZN, we preview F1's 2021 Season, as well as survey the paddock. From Mercs and Red Bull's struggles and gains, to an ultra-competitive midfield, and whether there's any hope for Haas or Williams at the back.
We also pay tribute to the tragic passings over the last few days of Murray Walker OBE, Formula 1's greatest broadcaster and Top Gear presenter and Queen of the Nurburgring, Sabine Schmitz.
Episode #291: Failure To Launch (Formula E 2021 Diriyah Review)
It was a chaotic opening weekend for Formula E in Diriyah, that included, but wasn't limited to, the most dominant first race in the series history from Nyck de Vries, two pretty scary major incidents in FP3 and Race 2 from Edo Mortara and Alex Lynn, EIGHT post-race penalties, and Sam Bird running down a pitlane with high fives. It's a trip.
Oh and there was a bomb threat. As you do. Formula E's Season Opener here on Motorsport101!
Episode #290: Regen Seven (2021 Formula E Season Preview)
Okay, again, a little weird, if you're on YouTube, yes, this is the full Episode 290 of Motorsport101, including the Season Preview for Formula E we uploaded there early. Also in the episode, we get miserable over the Daytona 500, despite the underdog winner in Michael McDowell, and talk about the possibility of whether F1 might finally bring in Sprint Races. Enjoy!

let me into the discord
I generally don't listen to a lot of podcasts but Andre and the crew are like listening to your friends in the pub chat about race cars. The commentary is thoughtful and progressive, and the rotating cast of people on the show is always a delight. Two enthusiastic thumbs up!
Audio quality is subpar but aside from that Motorsport101 is a mildly entertaining podcast
