And so the 2018 seasons lumbers to a close in Abu Dhabi, and all the drivers basically sum up their season in one race. Hamilton gets his 11th win of the season, Vettel comes close but not close enough, and Verstappen gets a bit stroppy. Cheeka, Phill and Terry look back at the Yas Marina goings on, and there’s exciting news of the next Christmas Number One.
Fight! Fight! Fight! Well, pathetic shoving. Verstappen and Ocon come to blows - nearly - after an eventful Brazilian Grand Prix. Cheeka, Phill and Terry discuss all the goings on and mention in passing that Mercedes won a championship, even though no one really cares. Plus Terry learns that meeting your heroes is awkward.
Right, that’s your fun over for another year. Hamilton wins the title in Mexico and will be phoning it in for the rest of the season. Max Verstappen won the race but failed to impress Terry, who together with Cheeka and Phill reflects on the Mexican Grand Prix, moans about everything and swears a lot. As usual.
The US Grand Prix saw Lewis Hamilton wrap up his fifth world title and oh no wait, he didn’t. Kimi won. What? Cheeka, Phill and Terry reflect on Ferrari being fast, Vettel being useless and unexpected sound effects. Plus Terry starts another inter-podcast flame war, for no discernible reason.
Cheeka, Terry and Phill give the lowdown on Hamilton's championship-winning (probably, getting it in early) race at the Suzuka, and his other milestones. Plus: haikus and Terry's bid for another F1 championship called 2018½.
The Russian Grand Prix saw a pleasing lack of Novichok, but it also saw Mercedes tell Valtteri Bottas in no uncertain terms that he is Hamilton’s Dobby the House Elf and should be thankful for it. Cheeka, Phill and Terry analyse the fallout from Sochi and the rest of the usual nonsense that F1 spews our each week.
Singapore saw a god-like lap from Lewis, god-awful mistakes from Ferrari and God knows what was going on with Perez and the midfield hooligans. Cheeka, Phill and Terry talk via the wonder of the internet about all the goings on at Marina Bay, and reflect on Kimi returning to his roots.
Crashes, calamitous strategies, booing fans, Hartley and Ricciardo breaking their cars - Monza had it all, and more. Cheeka, Phill and Terry look back at the Italian Grand Prix, ask whether McLaren and Williams are doomed and try to warn Lando Norris.
Cheeka, Phill and Terry are back, with a round up of all the summer news, reaction to the Belgian Grand Prix, and plenty of excuses for missing the last episode. We talk halos, musical chairs and how Alonso shafted his own career, and Terry reminds us on occasion that he’s in pain.
There are too many races, and everyone is on holiday. So whilst we await Cheeka, Terry & Phill's verdict on Hungary (due any week now), here's the first ever Hungary episode we ever did - in fact, the first FF1S we ever did - in all its embarrassing 2015 glory. Enjoy.
For an entertaining race, just add water. The German Grand Prix provided slow-burn intrigue and then slippery excitement as Vettel ditched it in front of his home crowd, Hamilton gambled everything and won and Charles Leclerc did a cool 360. Cheeka, Phill and Terry dissect the race with their usual surgeon-like precision, while drinking beer in a pub. And without an audience this time.
It’s FF1S Live! Sure, more people went to Silverstone than came along to watch Cheeka, Phill and Terry dissect the British Grand Prix, but we all know who had the best time. Raikkonen’s cheeky tap, Hamilton’s sulking and there’s a LIVE Cheekaquiz
Barely has the smoke settled over Spielberg, and Cheeka, Phill and Terry are already dissecting the carnage from the Austrian Grand Prix. Mercedes messed up, Verstappen took full advantage, and everyone's engines exploded. Also, Terry sings. Sorry.
After a decade away, Formula 1 returned to France, bringing with it Magic Eye track graphics and travel chaos. Still, at least the race was a bit less tedious than recent outings. Cheeka, Phill and Terry discuss Vettel’s clumsiness and the almost immediate failure of all the French drivers, and there’s still time to get tickets to our live show.
After two dull races, the Canadian Grand Prix spectacularly failed to liven up the season with yet another snoozer, despite the best efforts of Lance Stroll and Brendan Hartley. Cheeka, Phill and Terry despair, but make the best of the situation by analysing the boredom, before Terry heads off to watch Le Mans instead.
Monaco! The glamour! The skill! The unending boredom! Cheeka, Phill and Terry look back on the monotonous race in Monte Carlo and reflect on Verstappen crashing AGAIN, Ricciardo exorcising the demons and Leclerc annihilating Hartley's rear. Plus, Terry went on a plane, Phill met rock royalty and Cheeka toured Colombia in a golf buggy.
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?
