Hot on the heels of our positive thoughts about Williams for the coming season, we're expanding the topic for a full episode of predictions. On this show we discuss Stefano's toughest task, the best placed rookie and avoiding committing to anything. Packed with facts and figures, poll results and comments, we'll do anything to steer clear of making an actual prediction.
There are a lot of interesting teammate partnerships up and down the grid this year, including the potential title battle between Hamilton and Rosberg, the incoming Ricciardo squaring off the now-veteran Vettel, and rookie challenger Magnussen learning from Button. The line up that everyone wants to watch, however, is at Ferrari. Double world champion Fernando Alonso alongside the comeback king Kimi Räikkönen.
The drivers have been busily preparing and travelling to Australia, and acclimatising to their new surroundings. For a few, it's time to get ready for the first race of their F1 career, but for most it is a return to action. This week, points are available for making good use of Vine, a TV appearance in another language, great photography, and tackling a real challenge.
We've talked at length about the regulation changes, but one of the fundamental things that they affect is reliability. In recent years, Formula One has seen most drivers getting to the end of a race on any given Sunday. Now, looking ahead to the 2014 season, there's no guarantee that all runners will see the chequered flag, if indeed any of them do!
F1 Debrief is back, revamped and ready to face a brand new Formula One season. On this show, we discuss personnel changes, all the money pouring into Grove and the Brazilian succession plan. With just one topic on the agenda, we go in-depth at Williams, weighing up the many pros and fewer cons of life at the Oxford team.
It must have been at least a year since we last posted about the Sidepodcast F1 encyclopedia, and with a brand new season almost upon us, now seems like a good time to recap many months worth of changes.
Arriving three months or more later than expected and cutting it seriously close to the start of the Formula 1 season, the 2014 official F1 App is finally available to download today. The good news is the basic version comes for free, while the premium upgrade costs less than half that of previous years. The bad news is that although refreshed with a modern looking skin, the almost entirely unfathomable user interface remains largely untouched.
Eagle-eyed Sidepodcast readers will have noticed there has been no call to action in terms of submitting your audio predictions for the 2014 season. It's not that we think the year ahead is going to be impossible to predict, although that is going to be my excuse. The predictions megamix is one of those things that has had to be postponed to next year, as we battle with that pesky thing called time.
