The second edition of the popular Sidepodpanel, and our inaugural episode with a guest host. Alex Andronov takes the helm and discusses the upcoming championship decider, plus green F1 and Kovi's future.

Joining us on tonight's panel:

  • RG
  • Andy
  • Scott
  • Journeyer
  • Mr C

There are plenty of topics up for grabs this week, including a throw in question from Scott Woodwiss, and there's even an impromptu engine impersonation competition. It would be a shame to miss out on our panelists fine efforts.

  • With a seven point lead going into the final race, does Lewis Hamilton have what it takes to be World Champion, does he deserve it and do you think the FIA would be willing to disqualify him from Brazil?
  • You are, for this question only, Lewis Hamilton. What do you say to wind up the opposition ahead of this race?
  • KERS is coming in to Formula 1 next year. Can Formula 1 ever really be green?
  • Quick-fire question – who do you think will win the race this weekend?
  • If you were in charge of Formula 1 for one day and could introduce one rule which would be irrevocable forever, what would it be and why?
  • In a super team of Franck Montagny and Sébastien Bourdais, which has been formed with the Sidepodcast Euro millions fund, which engine and chassis do you choose?
  • (Scott’s interjected question) Apparently, Heikki has been told some people close to him that he is unhappy at McLaren, and that he possibly wants to move elsewhere. Do you think there’s any truth to this, what’s your opinion on it, and if he was to move, where could he possibly go?
  • Quick-fire question. I would like you please to do your very best impression of a Formula 1 car.
