But was that the case today? Listen to find out.

524: Russian Grand Prix Review

Ariana is battling with a cold which means she’s lost her voice, so her producer Martyn Lee is off the bench to host the show today with Luke Smith (F1 Reporter, Autosport) and Jess McFadyen (Director of Digital Strategy, Motorsport Network) to look back at a race which will ultimately be remembered for a major milestone for the record books but, in the immediate aftermath, is more about the broken heart of one driver who was looking good for a maiden F1 win.
26/09/211h 3m

523: Russian GP Qualifying Report

*No spoilers* 2021 really is the season which keeps on giving! With a top three nobody could have predicted before qualifying. Alex Kalinauckas (Grand Prix Editor, Autosport) describes the pole position result as a ‘shock’ and has good reasons why.  In the press conference after qualifying, Alex says the pole sitter admitted this is the one circuit he wouldn’t want to be on the front row for, especially if there is a headwind. However we’re set up for an unmissable race tomorrow. 
25/09/2125m 47s

522: Russian GP Practice Report

Ariana Bravo is joined by Stuart Codling (Executive Editor, GP Racing) to look at the two practice sessions earlier today, with Saturday’s running looking increasingly like it will face disruption from rain. Red Bull has confirmed Max Verstappen will take a new power unit and therefore start from the back of the grid, so they focused on long run pace. In the past Verstappen has driven from 19th to 5th at this circuit. The same power unit change also applies to Ferrari with Charles Leclerc.  Whilst the front of the grid might be easy to forecast this weekend, it was as tight as ever in the midfield today. Overtaking is possible in Sochi if drivers can get a good slipstream and have a decent speed offset from the car they’re following, so we could see plenty of moves up the field on Sunday.

521: The Future of Junior Single Seaters: Part 1 with Karun Chandhok

We're entering a period of change for the top level junior single seater categories in the UK.  British Formula 4 has launched the careers of Lando Norris, Oscar Piastri and Colton Herta since its creation in 2015.

Stephen Lickorish and Stefan Mackley present a two-part special about the future of young drivers working their way up the motorsport ladder. Our very special guest Karun Chandhok explains why it's so important for junior single seaters to thrive, and why he took up the offer of Motorsport UK to help guide the new era of Formula 4.

Marcus also gives us his circuit guide, corner by corner, and the best spots to watch the action

519: Review: Schumacher Netflix Movie

A new Netflix documentary on Michael Schumacher that offers an intimate portrait of the seven-time Formula 1 world champion is released today.  You can read Jonathan Noble's review online here, and listen to today's podcast for a discussion about the documentary. Martyn Lee is joined by Jon and James Allen (Motorsport Network President, F1 Journalist and Schumacher biographer) to look at why the Schumacher family gave their blessing to this project. The movie features plenty of Formula 1 footage but stands out for how many home movies are used to show the human being rather than the character created by the media at the time. Netflix not only obtains rare footage of interviews throughout his career but also new interviews with his family, as they talk about how life has changed following Michael's accident in 2013.
15/09/2128m 10s

518: Italian Grand Prix Review

Ariana Bravo is joined as usual by Jess McFadyen (Director of Digital Strategy, Motorsport Network) and two new voices to the Autosport podcast.

Harry is a motorsport commentator for multiple series, including those on the F1 support calendar in 2021, and also host of the Motormouth Podcast.  No spoilers here, but once again Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen wanted the same piece of race track, but how did it turn out this time? And which team will be partying long into the night after a long-awaited return to the top step of the podium?

This weekend at Monza sees the second sprint race format, so Friday afternoon was all about setting the grid for Saturday’s sprint qualifying.  The pole sitter tomorrow isn’t officially on pole, instead he earns the title of ‘speed king’.

515: Tonio Liuzzi On His F1 Career and Monza Preview

What better way to get in the mood for an Italian Grand Prix at Monza, than an Italian who has driven the track. We’re joined by Vitantonio Liuzzi. Enjoying drives for the newly birthed Red Bull Racing team, Toro Rosso, Force India and HRT, on the podcast today he looks back at a Formula 1 career which he says was often defined as being in the right place at the wrong time. Tonio talks about what it's like to race at Monza with the passion of the fans behind you, his best lap around Monza, why he credits Michael Schumacher as the key to his early success, the events which stopped him from rising up to be a team leader in a main Red Bull seat and remembering the famous Turn 1 crash which took out Nico Rosberg.   Finally he tells us why 2010 was the year he drove most of the season with just one hand on the wheel, and his duties this weekend as an FIA steward.

513: #ThinkingFoward: Mattia Binotto on why sustainable fuels are “a big deal”

Formula One will have new power units from 2025 that will run on 100% sustainable fuels.  So how big a change is that going to be? As great as the shift from V8s to hybrids? And while many governments around the world seem to speak today only of electric cars as the future, how powerful a message will Formula One be sending that the future of cars and mobility doesn't have to be all-electric? To help us answer this, we spoke to Scuderia Ferrari team principal Mattia Binotto and his F1 fuel partner István Kapitány, Shell’s Global Executive Vice president for mobility. Your host as always on #ThinkingFoward is James Allen.

512: Russell To Mercedes, Bottas To Alfa Romeo Confirmed - 2022 Driver Market Analysed

It's Monday 6th September and a breaking news episode on today’s podcast. Ariana is currently flying from the Netherlands to Italy to prepare for hosting this weekend's TV coverage, so you've got Martyn to introduce the news today. Well it's the announcement we thought was coming but you never know until it's a done deal. George Russell will be driving the Mercedes-Benz next to Lewis Hamiton and Valtteri Bottas will join the Alfa Romeo Formula 1 team in 2022 at the start of what the Swiss outfit says is a multi-year deal. The Finn's departure from Mercedes has been expected for some weeks, and a return to Williams was also a potential option before it became clear that his destination was Alfa Romeo. Kimi Raikkonen's retirement announcement on Wednesday was the first in a series of pieces of the driver market puzzle fall into place. Confirmation from Mercedes that George Russell is to join the world champion team as replacement for Bottas will follow this week. Bottas is reunited at Alfa Romeo with team principal Fred Vasseur, with whom he worked at ART in F3 in 2009 and 2010, and in GP3 in 2011, when he won the championship. Despite the strong contribution of Bottas over the years, the prospect of promoting Russell from Williams ultimately proved irresistible for Mercedes and team boss Toto Wolff. The Austrian was involved in Bottas's management before a conflict of interest obliged him to step back. Wolff has long stressed that he wanted to ensure that his former protege found a new seat should Russell be given the nod for the Mercedes drive, and said after Bottas's move to Alfa was announced that "he would absolutely have deserved to stay" in 2022. The news that Mercedes driver Valtteri Bottas will join Alfa Romeo next year is the first key move in Formula 1's 2022 driver market. In an exclusive interview with Autosport, team boss Fred Vasseur explains why the Finn he last worked with a decade ago has the traits his team needs for 2022, as F1 enters its brave new era.

508: Belgian GP Race Review

Calling Sunday’s track action a ‘race’ is stretching the definition according to many of those who sat through hours of delays, only to see the absolute minimum done to achieve a result. However, an official classification and podium ceremony was held after the shortest race in the history of Formula 1®. Despite that, there’s a surprising amount of questions our readers and listeners want answered. Listen to today’s podcast as Ariana Bravo is joined by Luke Smith (F1 Reporter, Autosport) and Jess McFadyen (Director of Digital Strategy, Motorsport Network) to discuss a controversial day.

506: Belgian GP Practice Report

Formula 1 teams are back in action after the summer break and today was two practice sessions which told us quite a lot about the possible form. Ariana Bravo is joined by Jonathan Noble (F1 Editor, motorsport.com).  There’s good news for drivers who have been able to announce contract extensions, and bad news for teams who are facing the prospect of grid penalties as they exceed their allocation of three power units for the season.  The midfield battle looks tight once again, and can Alpine keep their momentum of a victory last time out?

493: British GP Review - Analysis from the UK and Netherlands

The fallout from the frantic first lap, which saw Max Verstappen hit the tyre wall in a 51G impact at Copse corner and Lewis Hamilton receive a 10 second penalty, has continued for hours after the race. We wanted to understand some different perspectives on the podcast today, so first up we talk to Ben Anderson (Editor, GP Racing). Ben has driven many laps of Silverstone and competed in races where overtaking at Copse did not end up the same as we saw in Formula 1. Ben provides an insight into what it’s like behind the wheel when going into battle at that corner. Then we talk to Mike Mulder (Editor, motorsport.com Netherlands) to hear the Dutch perspective, and how they viewed the incident.  Ariana Bravo is fresh from interviewing the divers in the paddock and joined by Jake Boxall-Legge (Technical Editor, Autosport) to analyse the rest of the action at the British Grand Prix.

491: British GP Qualifying Report

The crowds filled the Silverstone grandstands at the British Grand Prix as part of a trial project to re-open sporting events, and they saw plenty of action. That's because this weekend sees qualifying move to a Friday evening, which dictates the starting grid for Saturday's Sprint qualifying race. Whilst today wasn’t an official pole position (that honour goes to the winner of tomorrow’s race) it certainly had all the tension of a typical shootout. Ariana Bravo is back in the paddock hosting coverage for our colleagues at Formula 1, and she is joined today by Jonathan Noble (F1 Editor, motorsport.com) to discuss if this new format was a success.

On the podcast today we're going through that interview and picking out some of the highlights from George about the season so far, and also his wider ambitions in Formula 1.  Will he be at Mercedes in 2022?

463: Can Alonso Win A Third Title?

Alonso’s tricky start to the 2021 campaign with Alpine has raised some question marks but, as the Spaniard tells Alex Kalinauckas in our cover interview for Autosport Magazine, it’s far too early to know where Alonso really stands. Even drivers that have just changed teams have found it hard to adapt and Alonso has had two years out of F1.    As Alonso points out, it seems only fair and sensible to give him more time. It’s quite possible that Alpine’s progress and the state of F1 following the rule changes for 2022 will have a bigger impact on how realistic his aim is.

445: Max Verstappen Interview - This Week's Autosport Magazine

Formula 1 fans have known for a long time that Verstappen has the speed to challenge for world titles. Now he seems to have the car with Red Bull’s RB16B, the one question that remains is: can he rein himself in to avoid throwing crucial points away in a championship fight? Verstappen has never won a title in car racing but, as he tells Alex Kalinauckas, he has done so in karting. Knowing when to go for a gap and when not, a balance Lewis Hamilton regularly finds, could be vital in a season-long fight against the reigning champion. But it’s clearly something the Dutchman has thought about and he believes it will be easier to fight for a crown in a competitive car than sniping for wins in a slower one. Alex Kalinauckas (Grand Prix Editor, Autosport) spoke to Max, and discusses his chat with Kevin Turner (Chief Editor, Autosport) and Ben Anderson (Editor, GP Racing).

This was the battle that every F1 fan hoped for. A straight fight between the champion and the challenger. A mix of performance and strategy that could have gone in any direction. Lewis Hamilton narrowly held onto the win by 0.7secs ahead of Max Verstappen. On the podcast today we explain the two sets of rules which allowed Hamilton to run wide at Turn 4 almost thirty times during he race, but which caused Max Verstappen to hand back first place after doing the same. Other standout performances we discuss are Lando Norris putting in a solid drive to fourth, and Sergio Perez who charged from a pit lane start to finish fifth. Does this mean we are set for a championship battle which could go down to the wire? Was it a five-lap thriller at the end or do you agree with JBL who thinks it was an anti-climax?

Formula 1 is back! This morning the cars rolled out of the pitlane, with Fernando Alonso waiting at the lights to be the first on track for the first competitive session of the season. Today was a new look to F1 weekends. Free Practice 1 and 2 are now 60 minutes, losing 30 minutes each, and the reduced running did give both sessions more energy. Red Bull continue the strength seen in pre-season testing, whilst Toto Wolff says Mercedes know what they need to fix. Further down the grid McLaren did well but both drivers complained about the car. Is it a bluff? Or has McLaren made a fast car which is difficult to dive on the limit?

Can Sebastian Vettel Win Races With Aston Martin?

As F1 teams assemble in Bahrain, the countdown to the 2021 season is now being measured in hours, rather than days and weeks. Whilst much has been carried over from 2020 there are still plenty of unknowns. And one of those is how Aston Martin will go this year. They recently unveiled their new branding, livery and a 4-time world champion driver in Sebastian Vettel, at a glitzy launch event. The major talking points from today’s podcast: •With Vettel coming into the team to replace Sergio Perez, can he get podiums this year? And can he win a race? •We look at the car and ask if they have what it takes to overhaul other midfield teams to finish 3rd this year •And if Lawrence Stroll is serious about his goal to be a championship contender, how will the team get there?

Bahrain Testing Day 3 - Why Red Bull's Pace Is The Real Deal

Formula 1's 2021 pre-season testing was a fast and furious three days in the desert. Unlike recent years with three different tests, or going back to further to unlimited testing, the last three days required an intense plan from the teams. Tyres, fuel loads and new aero parts all had to be evaluated in a vastly compressed time.. For McLaren, the only team moving engine partner, they had to assess their winter efforts to integrate a new Mercedes power unit. So who were the winners and losers? We think Red Bull are a credible threat from the very start of the season unlike recent campaigns. Mercedes are not in dire straits but they never looked comfortable, whether that was a car which wasn't dialed in, to Hamilton making unforced errors. Aston Martin had a tricky test and, whilst Vettel and Stroll are both upbeat, they would have loved more miles to understand the car. Surely Vettel's vast experience means he will have a good idea about the potential of the car, even if they couldn't deliver an ultimate lap time this week. Your host Jake Boxall-Legge (Technical Editor, Autosport) is joined by Luke Smith (F1 Reporter, Autosport) and Jess McFadyen (Director of Digital Strategy, Motorsport Network).

Murray Walker - A Personal Tribute From James Allen

Former broadcast colleague and now Motorsport Network president JAMES ALLEN explains what made Murray so special. Murray Walker’s was a life extremely well-lived. He brought joy to tens of millions from Southend to Sydney and popularised the sport of motor racing for many generations. But what made Murray Walker the person and the broadcasting legend that he was? Fittingly for a man who was unique it was an exceptional combination of factors. First his heritage in the sport and passion for it. Like me, he was drawn in by a father who raced, in his case on motorbikes, and worked in the sport. He is known as the voice of F1, but Murray had a boundless enthusiasm for many racing categories and was equally at home providing the soundtrack to all of them. You have to be committed to travel the world and put yourself out there, race after race, year after year and Murray was still properly into his late 70s, when the relentless travelling inevitably began to catch up with him. Next was his ability to know what the audience wanted. That came from his long advertising career, where he made millions of consumers believe that ‘Trill makes budgies bounce with health’, or that ‘a Mars a day helps you work, rest and play’ among other slogans he either invented himself or oversaw as the account manager. Broadcasters are, by definition, on ‘transmit’ all the time, but the best ones listen too. They know what messages and delivery styles cut through and resonate with the audience and Murray’s was as thorough and well curated an approach as you will find. His notes were meticulous; tiny, tidy writing on a pad he rested on top of a camera tripod case he placed directly between him and the TV Monitor. The product of hours of walking the pitlane and paddock, chatting to people. He understood exactly what the British public loved about Nigel Mansell and Damon Hill and layered that into his commentary. He understood the mystique of Ferrari and how to express its triumphs and its failures. He knew what made Juan Manuel Fangio and Jim Clark great because he’d seen them race with his own eyes and so he knew greatness when Michael Schumacher burst onto the scene. Schumacher had immense fondness for Murray and appreciated how he handled the narrative of the German duelling with the plucky Brit. He brought to his commentary huge energy and emotion; he not only stood up to commentate, but was on the balls of his feet the whole time. He’s known for his ‘gaffes’ but they were an inevitable consequence of being permanently on the ragged edge, leaving no margin for error. If he’d been a driver he’d have spun off frequently, like Mika Hakkinen at Monza that time, where Murray brilliantly channelled the drama and empathy of the moment and found the perfect words, as he so often did. He was always ‘in the moment’ and that is what you can hear in any of the clips you see on YouTube or Sky F1’s Classic Race re-runs. We have heard since his sad passing at the age of 97 many stories of how he was so well respected. He could walk into any team garage or motorhome whenever he wanted, a privilege afforded to very few in F1. And this is true. But less well known is that he was just as much at home on the shop floor, with the mechanics and truckies, with whom he always spent time. his came from his experiences in World War II when he was called up to serve in the Tank Regiment and became part of the force that swept through mainland Europe and brought the war to an end in 1945. Britain was very class ridden and hierarchical in those days and Murray didn’t care for people with aristocratic airs and graces. Life in the barracks threw everyone in together and made everyone the same and Murray loved that. It also made him the man he was; he treated everyone the same whether you were Ayrton Senna or his gearbox man. We could fill volumes with the stories about him and the anecdotes that he told. We travelled the world together for five years, I drove him from airport to hotel to race track and heard his countless stories, shared many great moments on air and was privileged to have had so much time with a man whose unique appeal you are seeing reflected now in the tributes to him. He loved being Murray Walker and all that came with it and he would be pleased and proud with the send-off he is receiving. A gentleman, a pioneer, an Everyman and an exceptional man. That was Murray Walker.

How Ferrari Will Recover From Its Nightmare Season

Welcome to our latest episode, a dedicated look at the cover feature topic for this week's Autosport magazine, Ferrari's quest to recover from its nightmare 2020 season. This time 12 months ago, Ferrari was preparing to leave the soon-to-be abandoned Australian Grand Prix under a considerable cloud. Its F1000 car had an extreme aerodynamic design to try and increase the number of places where its package was competitive. When winter testing got underway, it was quickly evident that there was something seriously wrong. The Ferrari powered cars languished in the speed trap classification at Barcelona, and in the final minutes of preseason testing, it became clear why the FIA communicated its famous settlement agreement regarding the controversial 2019 power unit. Ferrari suddenly lacked power and its new era philosophy created large amounts of drag. So even when the delayed 2020 season finally got underway, Ferrari knew it was in for a tough campaign. However the 2021 season has started with positivity as Ferrari held its team launch introducing new hire Carlos Sainz, Jr, who replaces Sebastian Vettel, and its new SF21 machine will be unveiled later this week. To discuss how Ferrari hopes to do better with that car in 2021, what challenges it still faces and also have a look back at some of the best cars that he has produced in Formula One, we're joined by two special guests, Kevin Turner (Chief Editor, Autosport) and Luke Smith (F1 Reporter, Autosport). Your host is Alex Kalinauckas (Grand Prix Editor, Autosport)

Rebuilding McLaren - Autosport talks to Zak Brown

This week we look into the reviving fortunes of a fallen F1 giant - McLaren Racing. But is it still a sleeping giant? They have consistently improved their results since finishing 9th in 2017 (with Honda power) to third in the constructors table in their final year with Renault. In 2021 McLaren will compete again with Mercedes power units and a new driver in Daniel Ricciardo. What do they have to do to get back on the top step of the podium? Can anyone beat Mercedes whilst being a customer? Perhaps, after all McLaren beat their engine supplier Renault in 2020. We sat down with Zak Brown (Chief Executive, McLaren Racing) to talk about how he's rebuilding McLaren.

Why Williams' revival in F1 is real

Williams Racing has fallen far from its heights as one of the championship supersquads, and it has regularly pledged its determination to re-tread old ground further up the grid.

F1 News: McLaren's New Chassis, Sainz's Unforgettable First Test and Mercedes Benz Talk Tech

This week James Allison (Technical Director, Mercedes-AMG Petronas Formula One Team) opened up on why the team fear they could trip up with the rule changes for 2021. Is it a bluff? Or perhaps an insight into mindset of a team so used to winning? Also this week, Carlos Sainz Jr said his first appearance in a Ferrari is "a day I will never forget". What did our own Jonathan Noble make of his first 100 laps in a Ferrari? And finally we hear from McLaren about how the majority of their 2021 chassis is brand new because of their move to Mercedes-Benz power. Production Director Piers Thynne told the McLaren website: "Whereas every other team will carry over most of its car from last year into this year, our switch to the Mercedes power unit means that's not the case for us. It's driven a huge amount of change and, essentially, we've been building a new car. The number of new parts on the MCL35M is about the same as when we built the MCL35."

Senna's Greatest Title? 1991 Autosport Magazine Special

Welcome to our celebration of the 30th Anniversary of the 1991 motorsport season, which is also the subject of a special feature in this week's Autosport Magazine. 1991 was a special year for Formula 1 with new races in France and Spain, the arrival of Michael Schumacher and Mika Häkkinen, new points allocations plus the first stop/go penalty. In our 1991 special, we argue that Senna's campaign - both on and off track - make it the greatest of his F1 crowns, while Williams co-founder Patrick Head is brutally honest about his team's failings that season.

Which driver will be Hamilton's F1 heir?

This week's Autosport podcast looks forward at Formula 1's future. There's no doubt Lewis Hamilton is currently F1's dominant force but, when he decides to stop driving, who can take his crown? It will be a tough act for anyone to follow but three of the drivers we've picked in this week's issue of Autosport magazine are discussed on the podcast. In Luke Smith's first cover for the magazine we look at why Sainz, Norris and Russell are our picks of the next generation. Also on this show we review the 2020 Formula 2 season. The title was won by Mick Schumacher but it wasn't a season of domination from the eventual winner, compared to previous years of F2/GP2. However that doesn't mean we shouldn't be excited about the Schumacher name being back on the F1 grid in 2021, and the curious reason why it could be even better for 2022. Alex Kalinauckas (Grand Prix Editor, Autosport) is joined by Luke Smith (F1 Reporter, Autosport) and Kevin Turner (Editor-in-chief, Autosport).

Or is this more about 2022 and the new regulation changes? Also this week, we talk about Williams changing philosophy and sharing more parts with the Mercedes F1 team. Plus with Australia's season-opener being postponed, Alex pitches his plan for why F1 should return to Silverstone much earlier in the season.

Why Racing Has A Purpose with Susie Wolff, Alejandro Agag and more

Our sport has a unique ability to reach, unite and empower millions of people globally, and its return is being eagerly awaited worldwide. The world’s top sporting events are some of the world’s most watched, bringing enormous visibility. Athletes and racing drivers like Lewis Hamilton are powerful role models that inspire others and lead by example. The events of recent weeks and the support for Black Lives Matter has shown that motorsport has an opportunity to bring the world together and to raise public awareness of societal issues and solutions. We had already seen signs before the pandemic crisis that sponsors and manufacturers were looking for sport to demonstrate a sense of purpose and it is increasingly clear that in the post Covid world, sport risks looking irrelevant if it does not have a higher purpose than just entertainment. In the FIA eSport Conference MSN president James Allen tackled this subject with a panel featuring Formula E founder and Chairman Alejandro Agag, Susie Wolff, who is team principal of Rokit Venturi Formula E team and the founder of the Dare to be Different initiative to bring more females into the sport; Andrea Adamo team principal of Hyundai motorsport, Bob Bell former CTO of Renault and Mercedes F1 teams and founder of Grid4Good.org and Yath Gangakumaran, Director of Strategy and Business Development, F1

Can Mercedes' W11 power Hamilton to seventh title?

The W11 that Mercedes unveiled on Friday morning looks distinctly similar to last year's title-winning W10. Even if its new challenger does carry over developments from the end of 2019, that leaves Mercedes well placed to pick up where it left off Autosport's Technical Editor Jake Boxall-Legge is joined by Ben Anderson to discuss why Mercedes-AMG remains favourites.

Car Launch! Explaining the new McLaren MCL35

Earlier today McLaren were the latest team to reveal their 2020 Formula 1 car, the MCL35. We were at McLaren's Woking headquaters to get up close with the car tasked with edging away from the mid-field pack and challenging the top 3 teams. Lando Norris and Carlos Sainz will hope this is the car to power them to a breakout season as more than just 'best of the rest'. Autosport's Technical Editor Jake Boxall-Legge joins Grand Prix Editor Alex Kalinauckas to discuss the first car designed under the technical directorship of James Key. Finally we cross live to Woking where Luke Smith had just watched the unveiling and gave us his first impressions.

Car Launch! Reb Bull's Refined RB16 and Renault's Season Launch

Red Bull just revealed their Formula 1 car for 2020, the RB16, and immediately became the first team to turn a wheel on track as they headed for a filming day at Silverstone with Max Verstappen. Jake Boxall-Legge runs his eye over the technical aspects of a car which goes into the second season powered by a Honda engine. Could this be the year the former World Champions take the title? They will have waited seven years to climb back to the top. Recent years during the V6 hybrid era have seen Red Bull almost limp into a season but Team Principal Christian Horner says there is a new philosophy in Milton Keynes to ensure they are on the pace from Australia. JBL and Alex talk about how this could be the best chance Red Bull have because they're evolving the car from a successful 2019 season, with three wins and a competitive package. As they are the first team to run a 2020 car does this show signs of confidence? Also Jonanthan Noble and Codders headed to Paris for the launch of the Renault R.S.20...without a car. Cyril Abiteboul told us he doesn't feel it's worth revealing the car before testing. However we did catch up with Daniel Ricciardo and Esteban Ocon to talk about their feelings about the new driver line-up. Tune in tomorrow to hear about McLaren’s new car, live from their unveiling on Thursday.

How Ferrari shocked F1 in the Singapore GP - Race Review

Even the Ferrari Formula 1 team itself thought the Singapore Grand Prix would be a comedown after its Belgian and Italian triumphs. Instead it took its first one-two of the 2019 F1 season, as Sebastian Vettel ended his year-long win drought ahead of a disgruntled Charles Leclerc. In the Autosport Podcast's Singapore review, Edd Straw and Scott Mitchell break down all the elements in Ferrari's shock result - from the upgrades that transformed the car to how its tactic of focusing on qualifying and then pegging the field back in the early laps backed its rivals into a corner. They also tackle the controversy over Vettel jumping Leclerc in the pits, and argue that the position swap was an innocent byproduct of Ferrari surprising itself. Mercedes' mood after its surprise defeat, the way the GP "fizzled out to a nothing conclusion at the front", the race's collisions and the wild events of the midfield are covered in depth too.
