Episode 56 - Formula One Management finally giving the people what they want audio waveform

What a race! Absolutely incredible start to the season, and as ever, we have plenty to say about the winners and losers of the weekend.


A podcast of two halves, it's difficult to explain.

Good week / Bad week

It's a good week for teams and their debut's, Super Aguri make it to Australia, whilst Toro Rosso will be getting their new car. It's a bad week for a couple of the drivers in McLaren and Red Bull.

News and views

A quick catch up with Trulli's mood, the future of the Australian Grand Prix, and Patrick Head's "crazy" idea for reversing the grids. Also, did Pedro de la Rosa join the GPDA for something to do?


The ITV feed, where's the reliability, Räikkönen, Piquet and the very green track. Plus, our predictions for the race.

The race

Räikkönen and Massa have a very poor showing, whilst Bourdais impresses. Poor Timo Glock, what's that bump doing there anyway? Piquet is still struggling, so why's Flavio being nice? And we try and understand the engine/gearbox situation.


A Fantasy Racers Sidepodcast league update, a request for a new tagline, and an Alonso / Hamilton exclusive!


The schedule is now live, so even we know what's going on. The live commenting was wonderful and we want more of the same next week.
