With Cheeka away on a Colombian drug binge, reserve presenter Ollie Peart joins Phill and Terry to peer through the smoke at the Spainish Grand Prix. Grosjean blots his copy book, Hamilton gets his groove back and Ferrari throw it away again. Plus there’s news on an exciting new FF1S venture, and Terry reveals his favourite Instagram filter.

Who would have thought Azerbaijan would turn out to be a future classic Grand Prix venue? Cheeka, Phill and Terry pick through the bits of carbon fibre as they attempt to analyse the Baku race. Bottas hits a rogue shard, the Red Bulls hit each other and Grosjean hits the ghost of Marcus Ericsson in an entertainingly chaotic race that makes for entertainingly defamatory debate.
Copy books were blotted, stacks were doubled and easy wins were thrown away. It could only have been the Chinese Grand Prix, or perhaps quite a few other races. Cheeka, Phill and Terry talk about the inevitable disasters that befell most of the grid, apart from Daniel Riccardo, and there’s a very sweary quiz. F*ck yeah.
What in the hell is going on? Honda engine cars are in the top four, Verstappen is rubbish, Bahrain is exciting, up is down and black is white. Cheeka, Phill and Terry discuss the Bahrain Grand Prix and consider horrific injuries, unlikely heroes and the Red Bulls throwing away their better-than-usual early season advantage. Also, grid girls are back. Yay?
G'day cobbers, it's the Australian Grand Prix, fair dinkum Bouncer from Neighbours. Cheeka, Phill and Terry get stuck into the lack of overtaking, Haas messing everything up and Ferrari spawning a win. Plus we take a look at the hottest new rookies on the grid - the Lastname brothers - and consider how Sainz's car waterboarded him to the point of vomiting.
F1 is back and it’s just as catastrophic and hilarious as always. Cheeka, Phill and Terry get the 2018 Formula 1 season underway by looking back at the off-season. Halos, testing and the dearly departed grid girls are all expertly assessed and analysed through the medium of poorly-researched, judgemental rants and no small amount of swearing. Listen, why don’t you? Thanks.
Formula 1 is all done and dusted, but Cheeka, Phill and Terry roast some chestnuts over an open fire and reflect on the 2017 season, with special guest Jack Nicholls from off of the radio. We announce our 2017 Sports (Driver) Personality of the Year and remember that time when that thing happened and that driver did something stupid. Oh, happy times. Merry holidays!
[19:58, 12/20/2017] Phill Tromans: Oh, are you still here? Well, you’d better listen to the second half of our chat about the 2017 Formula 1 season, then. If you haven’t already, listen to the first half, and then come back for FACTS. And SWEARING. And A BLOKE FROM THE RADIO.
The 2017 F1 season ends with a whimper and a silly new logo in Abu Dhabi. Cheeka, Phill and Terry look back on the final race of the season and generally talk nonsense about everything and everyone, as per usual. PLUS: we anoint the winner of The 2017 FF1S Fantasy League...
Bring out the revolving DJ, it’s the Mexico Grand Prix episode! Hamilton is champ, Vettel is a chump and Verstappen is a cheeky chappy. Cheeka, Phill and Terry reflect on a weekend of unexpected results and oxygen depletion, and there’s a special appearance from SANTA HIMSELF. Kind of.
In the wake of the Italian Grand Prix, Cheeka, Phill and Terry talk grid penalties, shitty poetry and disappointing Ferraris. Will Mercedes now dominate? Will McLaren sign with Renault? Will anyone hire that random drummer girl again? Literally none of these questions are answered, as per usual.
F1 is back after the summer break and Belgium provided some much-needed mediocrity, punctuated by Vettel and Hamilton thrashing at the front, Ocon and Perez thrashing each other and Alonso parking a perfectly functional, if utterly shit car. Cheeka, Phill and Terry are in London in the summer and have to battle with terrible buskers to take the piss out of it all.
K-Mag becomes our new favourite driver after a foul-mouthed offer to Hulkenberg; perhaps the highlight of an ultimately tedious Hungarian GP. Still, away from the race there's plenty of soap opera-level nonsense to dissect, from mandatory flip-flops to what Sauber will be powered by next year. Cheeka, Phill and Terry drink beer and discuss it all.
The hills are alive with the sound of Vettel moaning about other drivers again, shoey-gate hits a low point and Cheeka is educated about the one and only Stefan Dennis - yes, it's all the obvious talking points from the Austrian GP.
Baku was all set to be dull as ditchwater, but then everything went fucking ridiculous. Cheeka, Phill and Terry look back at a topsy-turvey Azerbaijan Grand Prix and talk about Lance Stroll as F1's new saviour, Vettel as Satan himself and why Force India's new name is just as shit as the current one.
Stroll got points, Palmer didn't crash and Ferrari weren't competitive. It was all change in Canada, apart from at McLaren, where Honda were still shit. Cheeka, Phill and Terry.com analyse all the action from the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve, announce the winner of our story competition, and reflect on their own brush with greatness at the Motor Sport Hall of Fame.
The Monaco GP came and went and bored us senseless like it always does. Cheeka, Phill and Terry ruminate on Monte Carlo and what we can do to make it more exciting. Clue: it involves plumbers. Don't forget you can still enter our competition to win a day with Terry and Phill, watching the British Grand Prix (not at Silverstone - we're not made of money).

The Indianapolis 500 was everything that Monaco wasn't: exciting, fast and with a Spaniard in it. Fernando Alonso braved the high speed oval in search of the triple crown, but Honda had other ideas. Cheeka, Phill and Terry dissect a different type of racing and try to make sense of it all.
It's the FF1S guide to the Indy 500! Cheeka, Phill and Terry won't let a lack of knowledge stop them from bringing you everything you need to know about America's biggest race. With Fernando Alonso taking part in the 2017 edition, it's sure to bring in plenty of F1 newbies, and this podcast brings you FACTS aplenty about milk, face sculpting and why it's basically the USA's version of the Great British Bake Off.
Cool overtakes, flaming engines and a squealing child: yes, the Spanish Grand Prix had it all. Cheeka, Phill and Terry review the best race of the season so far, in the State Of F1 we consider if F1 should have the NASCAR model of open scrutiny and we launch the greatest competition EVER.
