Limp launch, confusing identity - but will Red Bull's no.2 team be quick?

Scott Mitchell-Malm and Ben Anderson join Edd Straw to reflect on the snappily titled Visa Cash App RB F1 Team's limp car launch, which took place in Las Vegas - not that fans could watch it.

What the Andretti rejection means for F1

Scott Mitchell-Malm and Glenn Freeman join Edd Straw to discuss the news that Formula 1 has rejected the bid for a new General Motors-backed Andretti Global entry, despite the FIA’s prior approval. They meticulously pick through the reasons F1 gave for rejecting the American team's bid for a grid slot (and the validity of those reasons), explain what the Andretti camp's reaction has been, and debate what's likely to happen next in this long-running saga. They also discuss the optics of the rejection, whether they feel it was fair, and how it's likely to be viewed by fans, many of whom were clearly keen to see an 11th team on the grid.

Rob Smedley on the secrets of race engineering, Massa's court case & more

Legendary race engineer Rob Smedley, famous for working with Felipe Massa at both Ferrari and Williams, is our very special guest for this episode of The Race F1 Podcast. He joins fellow North-Easterner Mark Hughes and host Edd Straw for a wide-ranging chat on the topic of engineering in F1, including how the task has changed in the past 25 years, why there are fewer and fewer 'generalist' engineers these days, and just what it takes to develop a good driver-race engineer relationship.

And before signing off, Rob also gives us his thoughts on Felipe Massa's legal proceedings around the outcome of the 2008 world championship, and in particular that controversial race in Singapore.

Do McLaren finally have something to hide after surprise livery reveal?

McLaren sprung a surprise for fans on Tuesday with an unexpected reveal of its revised 2024 F1 car livery. So what better time for a catch-up on all things papaya, with Scott Mitchell-Malm and Ben Anderson joining Edd Straw for a wide-ranging chat. They explain why McLaren's decision to kick-start its 2024 preparations without showing a car could actually be a good thing, and, with Scott and Ben having recently spoken with Team Principal Andrea Stella and CEO Zak Brown, provide the latest on where the Woking team is placed heading into another season. Amongst the topics discussed are how McLaren's new technical recruits have settled in, why there's considerably more optimism around the team this year than there was 12 months ago, why Brown is so against Red Bull's ownership of two F1 teams, and the prospect of either Lando Norris or Oscar Piastri claiming a maiden victory in 2024.

Track limits: We debate how to fix F1's most contentious issue

Track limits - it's become a phrase we hear nearly every Grand Prix weekend, with drivers, journalists, commentators and fans all having their say on drivers straying beyond the limits of the circuit and how to punish them if they do. We've seen lap times deleted in qualifying, drivers being penalised for gaining an advantage in races and, more recently, a post-race protest in the US from Haas, aimed at recovering points from drivers who repeatedly strayed beyond track limits but weren't punished. Clearly, this is state of affairs that needs to be fixed, so as the end of the season approaches, Edd Straw is joined by Scott Mitchell-Malm, Glenn Freeman and Ben Anderson for a debate on tracks limits, with each of them presenting their vision for how to solve F1's most contentious issue for good.

Could Verstappen's rivals do what he's doing in the Red Bull?

Red Bull boss Christian Horner was recently moved to say that he doesn't think that there's anyone in the world who could match Max Verstappen's performances in this year's Red Bull RB19. But is he right, or might one of his rivals be able to step into the car and get as much (or more) out of it?

The upcoming F1 decision that could have a massive impact on racing

For many F1 fans, tyres are a boring necessity - essential to the sport, but dull to talk about. On this episode of the pod (which we promise is far from dull), Edd Straw is joined by Scott Mitchell-Malm and Glenn Freeman to explain why, with Bridgestone interested in returning to F1 in place of Pirelli, fans should be very interested in what tyres the cars are running in the future. They also debate whether F1 would benefit from another ‘tyre war’, where rival tyre manufacturers would vie for supremacy rather than every team using the same rubber.

SPECIAL: The making of Villeneuve Pironi, F1's new mega doc

On March 18th a new feature-length documentary entitled Villeneuve Pironi: Racing’s Untold Tragedy is coming to Sky Documentaries in the UK. It tells the powerful story of two of Formula 1’s fastest ever racing drivers, Ferrari team-mates Gilles Villeneuve and Didier Pironi, whose relationship pivoted dramatically from friendly to fatally fractious over the course of one April afternoon in Imola in 1982. On this very special episode of The Race F1 Podcast, we’re looking ahead to the film’s release with some of the key players in the project, including the director Torquil Jones, Gilles' wife Joann Villeneuve and Didier's partner Catherine Goux. Host Edd Straw discovers how the project came to life, how the narrative was shaped, the lengths the creators went to discover archive footage, and how the deep wounds left by this dramatic period in F1 history were harnessed.

Are you interested in F1 design and technology? Then you need to listen to The Race F1 Tech Show! Check out this episode of the show, and if you enjoy it be sure to like, follow or subscribe on your favourite platform.

Just how did the team go from midfield runner to podium contender in such a short period of time, especially when the rules have remained so stable? Can they keep up this form all season? And is it unfair to suggest their car design takes all its cues from Red Bull? Joining host Edd Straw to answer those questions and more is former Jordan, Stewart and Jaguar F1 technical director Gary Anderson. Gary also shares his thoughts on the first race of the year, and in particular why the field spread was much closer than last year.

BONUS: The secrets of semi-automatic gearboxes

This week we have a bonus episode for you, lifted directly from our sister podcast: The Race F1 Tech Show. Each week, host Edd Straw and former F1 technical director Gary Anderson dive headfirst into the wonderful world of F1 technology, discussing the sport’s big technical talking points, getting into the nitty gritty of car design and engineering, and answering fans’ burning tech questions. On this week’s show, Edd and Gary take an in-depth look at a bit of serious F1 tech that’s used by every team on the grid: The semi-automatic gearbox.  With the help of special guest John Barnard, the man responsible for bringing the first iteration of the paddle-shift box to F1 in 1989 with Ferrari, we look at how the technology works, what performance benefits the system has brought to F1, and how gearboxes have developed over the last 30-plus years.  Gary also talks through his experience of developing such technology at Jordan in the Nineties, but not before giving his opinion on F1’s recent cost cap controversy...  And in our listener questions section, Gary answers a question on the performance characteristics of 2022-spec F1 cars in wet conditions and low-speed corners. To have your burning tech question answered on the show, send a voicenote or email to [email protected] And if you enjoy the podcast, please search for The Race F1 Tech Show in your preferred podcast app and be sure to like, subscribe or follow to make sure you never miss an episode.

How Alpine let Piastri slip into the hands of McLaren

We explain how Alpine got it so wrong with its Oscar Piastri deal in the latest edition of The Race F1 Podcast.  Scott Mitchell-Malm joins Edd Straw to discuss the Contract Recognition Board ruling that Piastri had a valid contract to race for McLaren in 2023 and '24 and not Alpine, which was the big talking point in the Dutch Grand Prix paddock on the first day of practice at Zandvoort.  The timeline of the deals, and how that intertwines with McLaren driver Daniel Ricciardo being told his services were no longer required, is laid out - particularly with regards to the revelation that Piastri's contract was signed as long ago as July 4. We also discuss Alpine's likely choice as team-mate to Esteban Ocon having missed out on both Fernando Alonso and Piastri, and what it means for the rest of the F1 driver market.  This podcast is sponsored by GridRival. Click here to download the GridRival app. To join The Race league, click here.

Audi announces F1 entry - the key questions answered

Audi has finally confirmed it will come into Formula 1, but has it set too ambitious a timeline to be successful? That's one of the questions we ask in another edition of The Race F1 Podcast, recorded on the day Audi made its F1 plans official at Spa.  Scott Mitchell-Malm joins Edd Straw to question their very public expectations to be successful within three years, and to fill in the gaps where Audi was a little more reticent about its plans - notably what is going on with its widely-anticipated acquisition of the Sauber team.  We also delve into how the project will work, why it's independent from that of sister company Porsche and what it is that makes this project uniquely Audi.  This podcast is sponsored by GridRival. Click here to download the GridRival app. To join The Race league, click here.

BONUS: Zhou's Silverstone crash analysed + why F1 fuel is going synthetic and sustainable

This week we have another bonus episode for you, lifted directly from our sister podcast: The Race F1 Tech Show. There are two big topics on the agenda for host Edd Straw and former F1 technical director Gary Anderson, the first being Zhou Guanyu’s terrifying British Grand Prix accident. Together they take a closer look at the structures that saved the Chinese driver and ask what F1 can learn about further improving car and barrier safety. They then turn their attention to this week’s other major topic: synthetic sustainable fuel, with Formula 1’s tech chief Pat Symonds joining the pod to give us the ultimate guide on what the teams will be putting in their cars in 2026 - and just why the sport is heading down this specific route.

Bring Back V10s: Spa 2000 with Mika Hakkinen

In a special one-off takeover of The Race F1 Podcast's feed by our sister podcast, Bring Back V10s, Mika Hakkinen joins us to look back at one of his most famous battles with Michael Schumacher, which was decided by an iconic overtake in the closing stages. Mika joins Glenn Freeman and Edd Straw to discuss the whole race in great detail, from starting on pole position behind the safety car, to McLaren's cautious strategy that worked against David Coulthard, Hakkinen's spin that handed Schumacher the lead, and how he set about catching the Ferrari. Mika then describes in incredible detail how he felt when Schumacher chopped him on the run to Les Combes, how his run through Eau Rouge on the following lap was key to making the pass for the win, the role of backmarker Ricardo Zonta, and how it felt to see Schumacher's Ferrari in his mirrors after he'd pulled off one of F1's most memorable passes. Mika then explains his post-race conversation with Schumacher, and why declined to share details in public at the time or even discuss the block that left him "pissed off". Away from Hakkinen's heroics, Glenn and Edd look back at all the other big stories from the Spa weekend, including pre-race crisis talks at Ferrari, Jenson Button's move from Williams to Benetton, Schumacher and Jacques Villeneuve falling out (again), the idea of Juan Pablo Montoya signing for Toyota, Jarno Trulli emerging as a qualifying specialist, and the breakdown of Prost's all-French relationship with Peugeot.If you like what you here, please subscribe to Bring Back V10s free via your podcast supplier of choice to enjoy two season's worth of episodes covering everything from Damon Hill's near victory in Hungary '97 and the real story behind Alain Prost being fired by Ferrari to Ayrton Senna's final home grand prix and Nigel Mansell's disastrous stint with McLaren.
