An Aside with Joe - Saying nothing is not promotion audio waveform

An early morning start in Malaysia gives Joe chance to catch up on all things new in Formula 1. Ahead of the weekend's first sweltering practice session there is much to cover and plenty more to discover.

With one race down and 18 still to go, we discuss F1's new mindset, the lessons learned in Melbourne and a massive failure to communicate. Old meets new as talk turns to the rookie drivers marking their territory, plus the inevitable attack of the aerodynamicist and why F1 needs more Felipe Massas.

Brand new regulations offer brand new possibilities and Joe talks up those fabulous new engines, plus some astonishing numbers and the entire field's wildly impressive finishing rate. We cover Rosberg's good fortune, why Red Bull might need to make a good impression, balancing the needs of everybody and popping to the shops for a fuel flow meter.

All this and more in the very first Aside with Joe of 2014.
