With the sport turned on its head following news of Liberty Media's takeover, we track down Joe between long haul flights to grab his thoughts on all matters Formula 1.

We discuss who's been wandering around as if they own the place, saying goodbye to a ghastly bunch of people and why working together makes things better. Plus there's talk about pushing revenue upwards, the demolition of pay television and squeezing just a few more races into the calendar.

On the driver front we cover the spare seat at Williams, spinning and mistranslating Verstappen's words, selecting a factory team to move up the grid and the upsides of being excitable by nature. Chatter turns to how the Financial Times backed themselves into a story about Apple and McLaren, Sauber's now reachable target, the next generation of Nascar drivers and who's going where in IndyCar next year.

Finally, there's time for a little glamour as we talk about bringing racing to the masses through the medium of dance and which F1 drivers could win the glitter ball trophy on the Strictly Come Dancing ballroom.

Enjoy this latest instalment of an Aside with Joe.
