episode 7: 7: From World Champions To Mule Champions

Williams F1 Team - is still in the pre-season spotlight; for all the wrong reasons. One wonders what it could be like once the season starts, but then, we could have other under-performers to focus on. And would that be Mclaren? Well, Helmut Marko certainly thinks so.  

In our pre-pre-2019 Australian Grand Prix episode, we talk about Ferrari's masterstroke for Mission Winnow or did common sense just settle in? How easy or difficult is it for one to identify the Pirelli tyres? Why Red Bull Racing need to change their points of reference and is everyone too critical about Formula 1? Finally, we have our young and budding Formula 1 podcaster/reporter from Australia, Ashley Blutman back on our show. Tune in!

(Season 2019, Episode 07)

Here's what's in store for you in this episode:

0:00-3:00: Ferrari's masterstroke with Mission Winnow - two reasons why they dropped their controversial surrogate sponsor

3:00-6:00: Will Charles Leclerc be allowed to fight Sebastian Vettel? Ferrari say yes. Ferrari also say no! Sigh!!

6:00-9:00: Confused about identifying Pirelli's tyres this season? Well, you are not alone. Could 2019 be the season when Renault fades away into oblivion in the world of Formula 1?

9:00-12:00: Red Bull Racing need to leave Daniel Ricciardo and Mclaren all alone. They desperately need a change in their points of reference

12:00-15:00: Kunal's crystal ball looks into what could be the future of Robert Kubica. Formula E? Simulator driver? Or both? Unfortunately for Williams, they've gone from being former World Champions to the team that no one minds providing Pirelli with a mule car for 2021

15:00-18:00: Is everyone too critical about Formula 1? Should Formula 1 'control' the messaging that goes out from the sport and its stakeholders - the teams, drivers, etc.?

18:00-21:00: Finally, should a championship point be awarded for the fastest lap of the race? And we have Ashley Blutman, a young and avid Formula 1 fan from Australia, back on our podcast. She shares her expectations from the upcoming season and what she thinks of the Ricciardo-Renault partnership
