Episode 80 - His nose flew over his head audio waveform

This week we discuss Canada's removal from the calendar, and all the action from the Japanese Grand Prix, plus we have a record number of call about the subjects too.


Of course we're tired, but that still doesn't mean I'm important enough to be in good week / bad week.

Good week / Bad week

A good week for test drivers and sponsorship deals, but a bad week for Renault and the other manufacturers.

News and views

It's all about the lack of Canada on the '09 calendar this week, and pretty much nobody is happy about it.


We talk about the tyres, what we were expecting from Fuji (which wasn't much), the few incidents that were worth talking about, and of course, our race predictions.

The race

ITV let us down, but the race did not. The first corner held all the drama and influenced the rest of the race. Naturally, we discuss all the penalties and get some callers with varying views on them.


A couple of emails regarding the last show, with some corrections, some history, and another about Canada.
