Hello there, F1 friends, and welcome to The Great Debates, the latest mini series from Sidepodcast. The intention here is to shine a light on topics that cause conversation amongst everyone involved in F1, always have done and likely always will do. We have covered six topics in our journey so far and now we’re on to our seventh and final debate, and it’s a big one.
On the face of it, the Russian race doesn't look set to thrill. The new track has exceptionally smooth asphalt which is light on tyres, and therefore one stop strategies are the norm. Given that the 2017 rubber is even more durable than before, if the drivers didn't have to stop at all, I'm sure they'd get to the end no problem. It's hard to overtake in Sochi, so qualifying is crucial, and so far this year Mercedes have had the edge on a Saturday.
This is The Great Debates, a mini series by Sidepodcast, and you’re listening to the sixth of seven episodes. In this series we’re looking at some of the topics that are endlessly debated, usually with no definitive answer and that’s good because I’m not looking to provide answers, just shed light on the conversation. Yesterday was all about circuits and today we’re continuing that theme but moving to a different aspect of the F1 calendar.
The F1 Strategy Group met with the F1 Commission, the FIA, and FOM boss Chase Carey to agree on changes to the sport for 2018 onwards. The most visible changes will be around the engine covers with the regulations being tweaked so as to limit the shark fins and t-wings that have taken precedence this season.
Quite understandably, Daniil Kvyat has been upping his media duties in the build up to his home race of Russia this weekend. The Toro Rosso driver appeared on a talk show playing what looked like an entertaining game, and then worked with his teammate to earn a good score in F1.com's official quiz.
Hello and welcome to the fifth episode of The Great Debates, a mini series brought to you by Sidepodcast in search of the reasons behind some of the endlessly discussed topics. In this series, we’re not looking for answers – these are debates that almost have no answer – but instead highlighting the subjects that most F1 fans have some kind of opinion on. We’ve covered races, drivers and teams and now it’s time to look at another aspect of the F1 circus.
Hello there, you’ve tuned in to an episode of The Great Debates, a mini series from Sidepodcast discussing some of those Formula One topics that just never seem to disappear. We’ve talked about specific format arguments, as well as fundamental sporting discussions and now it’s time to move on to a new conversation, the ongoing debate about safety.
Welcome to The Great Debates, a mini series brought to you by Sidepodcast, focusing on some of the hot topics that surround Formula One that may or may not ever be solved. This is the third episode of our series and we’re moving on to another debate that gets the fans talking. We’ve covered already the specifics of qualifying, and a more fundamental area of the sport, and this is another of the latter category. Let’s get going!
