The 2020 Formula 1 season is GO! We're about a month away from the first race of the revised season and the ONE question on Formula 1's mind is - how do we make sure that the second race at the same circuit isn't predictable? It's strange that they aren't worried about the first race being predictable, too. In this week's episode of the Inside Line F1 Podcast ( , we tell you 3 whacky experiments Formula 1 may never try irrespective of how boring races may get...

episode 22: 22: Bottas Upsets F1 By Ending Vettel-Mercedes Saga?

Valtteri Bottas - what have you just done? By confirming Mercedes' lack of interest in Sebastian Vettel, you've literally just blown F1's best off-season talking point to pieces. Thanks, but no thanks for the anti-climax to the Vettel-Mercedes saga. We understand that you needed the clarity, but maybe the fans didn't? Carey & co. will have to find another big ticket story to keep fans engaged in this long off-season...

episode 23: 23: F1 2020 Driver Ratings - An Impractical Joke?

F1 2020's driver ratings have created a furore among fans. Whether it's Valtteri Bottas' 99 rating in the awareness column or Lance Stroll's pace rating being better than Esteban Ocon's or that Romain Grosjean's overall rating is better than Kevin Magnussen's - the driver ratings have brought us more laughs than a serious discussion. Btw, Nicholas Latifi's overall low rating and Alexander Albon's rating being lower than his Alpha Tauri counterparts are the few ratings that make some sense...

episode 24: 24: Should F1 Add Fake Crowd Noise To TV Broadcast?

Football has had fake fans and fake crowd noise in their TV-only formats. Should Formula 1 follow suit? Does Formula 1 actually need crowd noise in their broadcast? In fact, do you distinctly hear crowd noise while watching the sport on TV? We discuss the considerations that might go into making a decision on whether or not to add fake crowd noise to Formula 1's TV broadcast. Also in this week's episode of the Inside Line F1 Podcast (https://bit...

episode 26: 26: 10 Headlines That Will Dominate F1 2020

Will Honda bring Red Bull-Verstappen into the title fight? Will the Black Arrows create history? And then what about the Pink Arrows? Will they lead the mid-field battle? Not just Ferrari, it'll be Sebastian Vettel at Ferrari that'll create headlines. Let's hope we see 'vintage Seb!'

episode 27: 27: Mercedes Win But Chinks In Armour Exposed

Unsurprisingly, Mercedes are the class of the field this season, too. But the 2020 Austrian Grand Prix did expose a few chinks in their armour. We discuss them in our Pits to Podium ( race debrief along with the other talking points - Hamilton-Albon's incident, Vettel's spin, Leclerc & Norris' charge to the podium.

episode 28: 28: A Gag Clause in Alonso's Renault Contract?

Yes, that's the ONE clause that will come handy for Renault IF they are unable to deliver to Fernando Alonso's expectations. None of Renault's previous drivers have been as vocal about the team's inability to deliver a strong package season after season. But we all know that it will be different with the mercurial Alonso - in the media and on radio! He gives his best and doesn't settle for any less in return. Let's see how Renault rise up to the occasion...

episode 30: 30: Norris' Last-lap Moves Like A Hollywood Action Flick

Lando Norris' last lap moves have made headlines and even memes! In fact, Norris & Mclaren's execution seems just so Hollywood-like - with Norris' engineer giving precise instructions over the pit-to-car radio. And of course, 'Scenario 7' will be remembered for the time to come. Are we in for another Mclaren treat in Hungary, too? This episode is an Inside Line F1 Podcast ( and Pits To Podium ( special...
