Episode Artwork

Dare to Swear S04E07 "Growing pains"

Remember Yuki Tsunoda? Superlicense remembers. Without wanting to beat up on anybody, we realise just how "low stocks" F1's drivers get beyond the midfield, and question an over-used storytelling device.

What a difference a month makes! We've done a 180 on Russell, Schumacher's done a 180 on his form, and Ricciardo has everyone in a spin. In the Superquiz this week Rod dusts off an ancient tome seeking wisdom, and we try to remember Bernie Eccelstone.

Episode Artwork

205. Quack quack, Leclerc Championship?

Still high off the on-track action in Australia Rod and Zach return to discuss the opening races of the season, preview a brand new segment, scrutinise the on-going "Suck my balls, honey/mate" debate that just won't die and ask in cautiously hushed tones... will this be the year of Charles Leclerc?

204. 2022 pre-season chat with Box of Neutrals

It's better-late-than-never week at the podcast with good friends Box of Neutrals switching things up to join us for a pre-season show. Sure it was recorded before Mazepin was sacked, but what it lacks in timeliness it more than makes up for in gusto and hot takes.

Shakedown #3

We got into the Halloween spirit with Treehouse of Horror style nicknames, try out a new segment called "Zachoropolis", sort out why / if Rod keeps mispronouncing Vettel's name, and we learn what is the better name, Michael Hamacher or Lewis Schumilton?
10/20/202032 minutes, 35 seconds
Episode Artwork

173. Eifel GP (Fourty odd years of gastric)

Hamilton writes his name alongside one of the absolute greats, so we mark the occasion by retracing his 91st race win, celebrate Ricciardo's triumphant return to the podium, Rod offers a look at the world of F1 supersubs in the Superquiz, things run off the rails when we remember why Stroll didn't race AND wonder what the heck DC was talking about?
10/13/202057 minutes, 35 seconds

Shakedown #2

Honda leaves F1, Red Bull engine options, COVID encroaching on F1's bubble, that stupid idiot at the go-karts and our first Shakedown twitter poll: Who invented the wheel? Cavemen or Aliens.
10/6/202027 minutes, 57 seconds
Episode Artwork

172. Russian GP (Mostly snorefest, but not us, the race, listen to the show)

With 2020 still curbing our enthusiasm for F1 and the world in general we look at the Valtteri “Lucky Boy” Bottas 4.0, why Hamilton was harshly dealt but not in the conspiracy type of way, why Turn 2 needs a rethink and we use the Superquiz to examine some of F1’s most controversial penalties.
9/29/202057 minutes, 58 seconds

Shakedown #1

We're trying something same same but different, because the only thing that's certain right now is that nothing is certain. On Shakedown we just pop up to say a quick hello and talk the news of the day, like the Le Mans 24, F1 brainfarts being reported as news and more (but not too much).
9/22/202016 minutes, 42 seconds
Episode Artwork

171. Tuscany GP (The Albon Strikes Back)

Thanks for sticking with us! Rod and Zach wade through the carnage of the Tuscany GP, we hear from racers past and present and learn their views about the Mugello circuit, and Rod launches a new initiative to highlight what's wrong with the qualifying timing tower. 
9/16/20201 hour, 12 minutes, 18 seconds
Episode Artwork

170. Italian GP (Step on the Gasly)

Rod and Zach return, one jet-lagged and one sleep deprived, to offer their medium-energy perspective on the showstopping Italian Grand Prix that everyone is talking about. Zach, rightly, looks toward Pierre Gasly for inspiration for the Superquiz and Rod reveals some greviances about making podcasts.
9/9/202054 minutes, 35 seconds
Episode Artwork

169. Belgian GP (Too slow to spin)

Zach may be sunning it up in Italy, but Rod is still in lockdown and that's his excuse for sliding into hysteria. Good thing too, because we extracted everything we could from a snoozer of a race, we take Cyril Abiteboul from zero to hero in the Superquiz, and I guess some more... I zoned out toward the end. Bon appetit.
9/2/202056 minutes, 51 seconds
Episode Artwork

168. Spanish GP (The Verstappen Dynasty)

With the Spanish GP setting a new benchmark for lacklustre races, Rod and Zach whip through the on-track "action", lament our F1 Fatasy performance, fight for our right to party with the Superquiz and then train our focus on a high-profile recovery strategy for Formula 1 in 2021.
8/19/202046 minutes, 20 seconds
Episode Artwork

167. 70th Anniversary GP (Definitely not the British GP)

Chances of a Mercedes clean sweep this season were dashed by the romping Red Bull of Max Verstappen... so why does the 70th Anniversary GP feel so stale? We offer luke-warm takes on the events of the race, someone rightly pulls Rod up for his woeful pronounciation and Zach makes it an episode worth listening to with his 70th Quiziversary.
8/12/202048 minutes, 11 seconds
Episode Artwork

166. British GP (Nico Hulkenbubble burst)

We recap the explosive British Grand Prix, speculate wildly *coughVettelAstonMartincough* about who will be "bubble buddies" for 2021, and we get a little closer to the man they call Cheeky Checo Perez in this week's Superquiz.
8/4/202051 minutes, 46 seconds
Episode Artwork

165. Sam Mareemro, San Rameena

Imola is IN, Brazil is OUT, what's that all about? Just like isolation, Rod and Zach don't believe in taking a week off so we're back with a look at the F1 news of the week, we answer listener questions, offer some recommendations to help fill your newfound abundance of spare time, Rod announces his side-project podcast, and hopefully you didn't skip lunch ahead of another Superquiz.

164. Hungarian GP (Caravan of Courage)

Send us your questions ahead of the next episode: [email protected] Coming at you live-to-tape, adjacent to the Caravan of Courage, it's the Superlicense podcast. If the prospect of rain that never came dampened your enthusiasm for the Hungarian Grand Prix, never fear! We're back with our patented race review and (patent pending) Superquiz to keep those fires burning between triple-headers. 
7/22/202048 minutes, 20 seconds

163. Styrian GP (If I can catch you and kiss you)

We set the latest Styrian Grand Prix in its appropriate historical context, take sides in the Renault vs Racing Point technical stoush, reacquaint ourselves with someone called Fernando Alonso, and speculate on a possible road back to Red Bull for Sebastian Vettel.
7/15/202042 minutes, 49 seconds
Episode Artwork

162. Austrian GP (Lewis got a Hamilton)

We finally have some racing to talk about and Austria was.... worth the wait? Maybe? Granted it was a loooong wait. Ok, but it was good even if Zach had to wait a little longer than the rest of us to catch the final lap. Rod challenges Zach to answer his back-to-back, and we upset some folks on twitter while avoiding the anger of others (aka business as usual).

161. 2020 Season Preview (Take 2 -- All kinds of odd)

Ok, let's try this again! The post-COVID world looks very different in some key ways, so we're delivering a primer, a spotter's guide if you will, to what to expect when you're expecting a return to racing in 2020. It's not just the cars, but what's around them that's changed, and Zach looks to live and let livery in the Superquiz.

Dare to Swear #9 (A "Drive to Survive" S02E09 commentary)

With the end in sight we follow Drive to Survive as they gaze behind the curtain of the Williams F1 operation, poke and the soft underbelly and ask the hard questions. Zach calls out the folly of predictions from years gone by in the Superquiz, and Rod was also there although sometimes you wouldn't know it.
6/18/202056 minutes, 57 seconds

Dare to Swear #8 (A "Drive to Survive" S02E08 commentary)

We're back to business as usual, although absolutely EVERYTHING we said last week still stands and needs vigilance to ensure change. Your boys cover the pre-penultimate D2S episode, and you had better be paying attention if you want to stand a chance in this week's Superquiz.
6/11/202053 minutes, 2 seconds

A full and frank race discussion

Sorry if you're expecting another Netflix commentary or upbeat Superquiz, but it just didn't feel right this week. Instead we offer a heartfelt, reasonably informed and hopefully constructive discussion about racial injustice before switching back into F1 mode.  Resources mentioned:  Bridging the Gap Beyond Blue Campaign Zero Reclaim the Block Black Lives Matter Show racism the red card and more  Closing track: Hell You Talmbout (Janelle Monae f.

We open with some slapdash well-wishes to Zach the birthday boy before briefly covering the latest developments as F1 scrambles to return to racing, rip through another rambunctious Drive to Survive commentary and reminisce about some ruthless sim racing in the Superquiz.

Dare to Swear #6 (A "Drive to Survive" S02E06 commentary)

We cover the Silverstone situation, Sainz's success and Ricciardo's recovery ahead of another commentary of the Netflix series Drive to Survive.

Dare to Swear #5 (A "Drive to Survive" S02E05 commentary)

Little bit of news around... Sebastian Vettel is leaving Ferrari and is likely to retire, so we talk through all the possible permutations in the driver market, and continue our look at Drive to Survive -- this week a look at the rise and fall of Pierre Gasly at Red Bull.

160. Australian GP (Please wait: Season loading...)

Well, that didn't entirely go to plan! Like us you're probably in various states of lock-down, and flying in the face of various travel bans we thought you'd buy you all a ticket to visit the Superlicense universe. We react to the shambles that happened in Melbourne, speculate wildly about the season ahead and offer a ray of hope in the Superquiz.

159. 2020 season preview

We're back to blow the cobwebs away with our super-chilled season preview. What was up with Ferrari's engine? What is up with Mecedes' steering wheel? Will Zach actually be travelling to a country while a Grand Prix is on... AND ACTUALLY ATTEND!?!?!

158. Season 2019 Awards Gala (w. Box of Neutrals)

Four (wink) pundits come together to bestow awards on teams and individuals from throughout the F1 2019 season. Nobody asked for it, and some would downright refuse their legitimacy, but whom are we to mess with tradition? See you in 2020!

157. Abu Dhabi GP (We're not experts)

You can hear it in our voices and our hearts, the season has almost broken us. Before we (and F1, I guess) take a well-earned break we recap the lacklustre Abu Dhabi race, commemorate a departing statesman as only we can and scrutinise our own hits and misses throughout 2019. Stay tuned for our end of season show!

156. Brazil GP (Green smoothies all 'round)

In a year of stand-out races, this one might be the most eventful yet. Round after round of battles between drivers, teams and strategies, and as usual we judge them all from high atop our ivory tower. McLaren's long-awaited return to the podium is fodder for a Superquiz, and things get spicy as the fantasy league approaches it's conclusion.
11/27/201952 minutes, 56 seconds

155. United States Grand Prix (That’s why you need shotguns)

With Hamilton basking in his newfound "six appeal" (make it a thing), we recap an otherwise unremarkable United States Grand Prix, learn why you need shotguns as we dredge up F1 Dreams one more time, and go from influenza to influencer with Zach's Hintstagram superquiz.
11/6/201952 minutes, 33 seconds

154. Mexico GP (Dirty air around a package)

Did you snag yourself a podium-selfie with Vettel? Well then you're over-qualified for this week's Superquiz about the "Greatest" F1 selfies throughout (recent) "history". We recap the festival of speed that was the Mexican Grand Prix, unpack how the strategies dictated the result, and make a bold prediction about the Drivers' Championship.
10/29/201943 minutes, 48 seconds
Episode Artwork

153. Japanese GP (Six isn't as good as seven, last time I checked)

Mercedes have wrapped up the Constructors' Championship, and one of their stallions will claim the Drivers' title... so what exactly did they f*** up? A race in Japan means the return of the Haikuiz, and we learn that spoiling the race result is a sure-fire way to get removed from Rod's Christmas card list.
10/16/201948 minutes, 50 seconds
Episode Artwork

152. Russian GP (Rearrange the whole world to suit my personal circumstances)

Despite the "off-track" action, Russia was about as dull as Bob Dole's keynote address at the Festival of Particularly Dull Folks. To address the deficit, we weigh in on Ferrari's team orders, look at how pitting under Safety Cars could be improved, and use the Superquiz to take a whole new look at the Formula 1 grid.
10/1/201957 minutes, 40 seconds
Episode Artwork

151. Singapore GP (Don't speak about it, and also Spiderwebs)

Did Ferrari dud their young star driver to appease Sebastian Vettel? Where did their performance come from in the first place? Will we stick to our usual formula of discussing the podium, what Ricciardo did and something from the backmarkers? What was that weird reference to someone connecting with Zach on LinkedIn? It's fine, don't even worry about it.
9/25/201949 minutes, 29 seconds
Episode Artwork

150. Italian GP (Hey man, I'm a racer, don't worry about it)

For our big 150th episode and we had no shortage of talking points. With Mercedes dominance a distant memory, we heap praise on Charles Leclerc, break-down the black-and-white flag controversy, put Toro Rosso under the microscope, and ask what can Vettel do to get Ferrari back on his side?
9/18/201955 minutes, 48 seconds
Episode Artwork

149. Belgian GP (We agree, which is a bit nice)

After a tragic weekend for Motorsport, we recap Charles Leclerc's maiden victory, analyse whether Vettel could have saved a podium, compare the careers of two Ferrari stalwarts, and lay out all the driver movements for 2020.

148. Unraveling the Vettel myth (w. Spanners Ready)

Here's an idea... Albon will win a race before Vettel does. You heard it here first. As always when there's no on-track action to recap we turn to a luminary, and this time we have a real doozy.... none other than the firecracker that is Spanners Ready from the Missed Apex Podcast to discuss driver movements, the year so far and which driver has the worst fans.
8/21/201947 minutes, 48 seconds
Episode Artwork

147. Hungarian GP (Stoppers for cars)

What a good race (great tho? it's debatable) to usher us into the summer break. With a brilliant strategy giving Hamilton victory, we're left to ask about the future for the drivers (cough, Bottas, Gasly) and even the teams (cough, McLaren, Renault). Come back for more throughout the break, and stay subscribed!

Episode Artwork

145. Britain GP (Spray, drink, drop and figure eight)

Was the British GP the best race in years? We discuss what makes a classic race, unpick the Mercedes strategy that helped Hamilton and left Bottas battered and bruised. Is Vettel a spent force? What else could go wrong at Haas? And what the hell is up with Rich Energy anyway?
7/17/201942 minutes, 25 seconds
Episode Artwork

144. Austrian GP (The Big Massa Thing)

Did Verstappen deserve a penalty? What brought Hamilton's dominance to a halt, and where to from here? We unpack what made the Austrian Grand Prix such a classic, celebrate the youngest ever front row in our Superquiz, and introduce you to the latest recruits to the Superlicense Army: General Conjecture, Major Villages and Server Bill.

143. French GP (A chapter from Alexei Sayle's autobiography)

We know, we know. But what are you gunna do, not watch F1? Of-course not. That's why we stuck around to recap the French Grand Prix, Zach's Superquiz is guaranteed to "Tilke" your funny-bone, and we stumble through a round of "what's your flair?"

142. Canada GP (Double reverse reverse Bradbury)

We talk all things Vettel vs Hamilton, Daniel Ricciardo's return to form, Hamilton vs Vettel, Bottas' disappointing race, Vettel vs the rules, Norris did start the fire, the Vettel controversy, and much more about the race-deciding penalty.
6/12/201955 minutes, 17 seconds
Episode Artwork

141. Monaco GP (Your pink socks have been revealed)

Like Lewis, Rod is in severe conservation mode this week but we pull one out of the proverbial bag to tribute Niki Lauda, question Leclerc's mental state, and Zach asks... "which Ferrari driver would you want to have been number 2 alongside?"
6/2/201955 minutes, 23 seconds
Episode Artwork

140. Spanish GP (His friends call him Louis)

Where is it going wrong for Ferrari, the BBC, and F1 in general? Your old mates Rod and Zach don't waste any time discussing the thrilling race whatsoever, with only limited mentions of ABBA, Koala Whiskey, and the triumphant return to Zandvoort (because people want Dutch).
5/14/201943 minutes, 25 seconds
Episode Artwork

139. Azerbaijan GP (What even is this season?)

A disappointing follow-up to a lacklustre 1000th race, but your boys hold strong. Zach gropes around in the bargain bin looking for F1 related nuggets for a media-focused Superquiz, and Rod... well, excuse Rod. He can be grumpy, but we still love him.
4/30/201944 minutes, 52 seconds

138. Chinese GP (Races since Vettel spun: 1)

Formula 1 storms into its second millenia, albeit with a snooze-worth borefest. We scoop up the dregs for our race recap, Rod conjures the hardest quiz that we've ever attempted, and construction on Zach's 2nd office continues. All this and more on the podcast that asks the question..... SCMODS?

Episode Artwork

137. Bahrain GP (Winning when you're crap)

We're all commiserating with the new heartbreak kid, Charles Leclerc. The lack of sleep and busy days utterly cook Rod's brain, instead we offer highlights from the Fantasy League, low-lights for Vettel and Renault, Zach talks fancy beers and we learn a truly bewildering pnuemonic for remembering one team's full name.
4/2/201939 minutes, 49 seconds

136. Australian GP (An MGU-K full of big dick energy)

Do you even believe that drive from Bottas? Rod and Zach kick off another F1 season with a recap of the Australian Grand Prix with a revamped format. We delve into the Fantasy League results and Zach tries to beat the clock in our new recap challenge.

134. End of season awards gala (w. Box of Neutrals)

What a season it's been, and we couldn't let another year wind down without recapping the highs and lows with our good mates from Box of Neutrals. For sure one of them (naming no names, Peter) won't win any awards for promptness, but the champagne flowed and the canapes were plentiful punctuating another successful end of season gala.

133. Abu Dhabi GP (The Fresh Sheikh of Abu Dhabi)

It's the "Abu Dhabi and Friends" edition of Superlicense as we wind back the clock to the Brazilian GP for news and predictions, then skip forward to the season finale in Abu Dhabi. It's not as convoluted as it sounds, and if we can reach the right influencers we might just get the term Empty Nest into the F1 lexicon.
12/5/20181 hour, 2 minutes, 56 seconds

132. Mexican GP (One of the greatest car-drivers ever)

Is Lewis Hamilton the best of all time? The championship was decided in Mexico, so we talk all around it during our race recap, we rewind things for an old skool Hamilton quiz, and always one to leave them wanting more... Rod's accompanying the Mariachis all weekend leaves his voice wanting.
10/31/20181 hour, 4 minutes, 19 seconds
Episode Artwork

131. United States GP (We haven't talked about Kimi for several minutes)

Are you not entertained? What everyone expected would be a dead-rubber turned out to the best race we've had in, I dunno, yonks. We talk about the ins and outs from COTA, letting all the richoes pay to race, more driver market chatter, and we relive some of Raikkonen finest moments in the Superquiz.
10/24/201856 minutes, 45 seconds
Episode Artwork

130. Japanese GP (When you explain things they make sense)

Japan was the penultimate nail in the coffin for Vettel's title hopes, and with a handful of races left and Hamilton's fifth championship virtually in the bag almost anything could happen. Zach's quiz creates such an aura of mystery and artistry that Rod transcends to a new level of zen in which he forgets how to think.

Special bonus episode: Drift (Episode 8)

Confused? Until we can reunite for our Japanese GP recap, we're filling the gap with a special release of our Superlicense Club-supported podcast: Drift.

129. Russian GP (You've got to be in it to be in it)

It's a good, old-fashioned sleep-deprived grumpcast this week as we look back at the most controversial race of the year. With team orders being the topic du jour, Rod and Zach also discuss the proposed qualifying changes, fixing the engine penalty system, we play "Kvyat or nyet" and unpack the hidden meaning of a 90's RNB classic.
10/3/20181 hour, 16 minutes, 30 seconds
Episode Artwork

128. Singapore GP (Kaboom! BBQ Curry)

The people have spoken. You voted for a Driver of the Day that the podcast deserves, but not the one F1 needs right now. With a "slow race week" on our hands, we trade off obscure Twistie flavours, Rod showers himself in failure during the quiz, and things get downright adults-only near the end. Yes, this is still an F1 podcast.
9/21/20181 hour, 4 minutes, 26 seconds
Episode Artwork

127. Italian GP (That phone doesn't ring anymore)

Kimi broke the hearts of millions of Ferrari fans after taking a mega pole position, but Hamilton's victory was no less impressive, and equally important for the championship. All that plus: Norris lands at McLaren, Renault and Haas have beef, and could we ever get predictions from outer space?
9/5/201848 minutes, 26 seconds
Episode Artwork

126. Belgian GP (Full-kit wankers)

Huge crashes, overtakes for the race lead, new teams—the Belgian grand prix had everything you could want from the first five corners of a race. To keep things rolling we cover all the rumoured driver changes, learn some obscure facts about one of the great drivers of our time and deploy full snark toward those with all the gear and no idea.

125. Summer break (Drop it like it's Hartley w. Luke Smith)

We waited until all the news had broken (well, almost) before recording our big summer break show. Joining us to reflect on the season so far is Luke Smith, with whom we dissect all the driver movements, consider a return for Jean-Eric Vergne, and ask which driver will snub his father and discover The Clash?

124. Hungarian GP (To a lesser extent, Bronson)

Are you ready for the summer break? Well there's one last race to cover before we can officially relax. This week we talk about the Force India administration situation, the Valtteri Bottas incidents, fitness and injuries in F1 and, to a lesser extent, Bronson.
8/1/20181 hour, 30 seconds
Episode Artwork

123. German GP (Secret cranes of the Pharaohs)

An unpredictable race deserves nothing less than a suitably random recap podcast, and we feel we truly delivered that this week. We talk about how Vettel threw the victory away, Hamilton dragged himself back into the championship, and Sergio Marchionne sadly slipped away from us.
7/26/20181 hour, 9 minutes, 42 seconds
Episode Artwork

122. British GP (Too hot for my porridge)

Things didn't go the way Hamilton had dreamt, but the British Grand Prix was another barnstormer that delivered action on all fronts. With the world's eye on a cup of a different kind, Zach brings the noise with a football/Formula 1 hybrid quiz, and establish a new measure of success in motorsport.
7/11/20181 hour, 4 minutes, 57 seconds
Episode Artwork

121. Austrian GP (Yummy, yummy, lots of points for me)

We're over the hump of the triple-header and Austria gave us a race that nobody could predict and nobody will forget (although Mercedes probably wish they could). Rod gets weird in the Superquiz, we analyse the strategy calls that shaped the race and visualise the Sky commentators demise following a dramatically elongated haranguing. 
7/4/20181 hour, 40 seconds

120. French GP (A rival quinoa clothing brand)

F1 returns to Circuit Paul Ricard, which means it's time for a recap Superlicense style. This week we talk Alonso's Le Mans win and career trajectories, cover some histoire du sport automobile in the quiz, and learn which driver has an ambitious sibling with musical aspirations.

119. Canadian GP (A Scandanavian Political Crime Thriller)

It's another recommend-o-cast from the Superlicense crew, as we scratch together a recap of the Canadian GP, discover what's wrong with Pirelli, what's wrong with Rod's socks, what's right with Verstappen and play "What famous people do you know?"

118. Monaco GP (Centi, Deci, Milli, Curly & Moe)

Monaco left you with an entertainment deficit? Your boys have you covered, polishing the jewel in F1's crown, Porsche-ing it up in the Superquiz and pulling apart the news and controversies of the week. The con is on!

110. Abu Dhabi GP (Logo breaking my, logo breaking my, logo breaking my heart)

To wrap up the season we spend longer talking about F1's new logo than the race. We dissect what little action the race provided, speculate wildly about next year (so what's new? Kubica?

It was hyped to within an inch of it's life, but the US Grand Prix did deliver some interesting talking points even if the drivers' championship remains on life support. We discuss which drivers are staying put, which are moving on and which new-comers look like existing drivers. Did you like the pre-race hype-o-rama?

98. Austrian GP (Hashtag it's not a corner)

Austria was a good race if your name rhymes with Saltteri or Flebastian, and damage control at best if it rhymes with Kewis.

94. Spanish GP (A nard-smash simulator)

We should have known the Spanish Grand Prix was going to deliver the goods. Not only did (almost) everyone bring their major engine and aero upgrades, but the racing got an upgrade. Just a bee's dick separated Vettel and Hamilton in qualifying and a race either of them could have won. With plenty of juicy stories up and down the grid, we also manage to place F1 merchandise under the microscope in the Superquiz, and a last-minute wager is sure spice up next week's Monaco GP.

We cover the action-packed Austrian Grand Prix, canvas all the news from the paddock and beyond, and turning a negative into a positive this will be the first episode not to feature a Superquiz (mostly because after the first time through Rod knew all the answers!). #Pioneers Best of all we caught up with Formula E commentator Jack Nicholls ahead of the season finale double-header at Battersea Park this weekend. For the full "F1" Chat with Jack check out our website and hear his true thoughts about Fan Boost, what car he drives and whether Michelin are legit about returning to Formula One.  Links Brawn targeted as the man to save F1: Jonathan Noble reports that Christian Horner wants F1's favourite fisherman to set the regulations straight. Ferrari ready to supply Red Bull with engines: Crazier things have happened. Pirelli and Michelin go head-to-head for 2017 Formula 1 tyre deal: What is it good for? Hopefully quality racing. Monza and Imola could share Formula 1 Italian Grand Prix: #StillABatterLoveStoryThanAzerbijian. Is now the time to change open-top racing?: Friend of the show Michael Lamonato lays down the argument for introducing cabins in F1. Superlicense F1 Chat: Rod catches up with Formula E commentator Jack Nicholls. Rod's profile on The Roar: Newest member of the Expert line up on The Roar, now bringing you a weekly column rather that just a race recap.
