A light-hearted look at the fast and furious world of Formula 1 including race recaps, news and trivia.




124. Hungarian GP (To a lesser extent, Bronson)

Are you ready for the summer break? Well there's one last race to cover before we can officially relax. This week we talk about the Force India administration situation, the Valtteri Bottas incidents, fitness and injuries in F1 and, to a lesser extent, Bronson.


123. German GP (Secret cranes of the Pharaohs)

An unpredictable race deserves nothing less than a suitably random recap podcast, and we feel we truly delivered that this week. We talk about how Vettel threw the victory away, Hamilton dragged himself back into the championship, and Sergio Marchionne sadly slipped away from us.


122. British GP (Too hot for my porridge)

Things didn't go the way Hamilton had dreamt, but the British Grand Prix was another barnstormer that delivered action on all fronts. With the world's eye on a cup of a different kind, Zach brings the noise with a football/Formula 1 hybrid quiz, and establish a new measure of success in motorsport.


121. Austrian GP (Yummy, yummy, lots of points for me)

We're over the hump of the triple-header and Austria gave us a race that nobody could predict and nobody will forget (although Mercedes probably wish they could). Rod gets weird in the Superquiz, we analyse the strategy calls that shaped the race and visualise the Sky commentators demise following a dramatically elongated haranguing.


120. French GP (A rival quinoa clothing brand)

F1 returns to Circuit Paul Ricard, which means it's time for a recap Superlicense style. This week we talk Alonso's Le Mans win and career trajectories, cover some histoire du sport automobile in the quiz, and learn which driver has an ambitious sibling with musical aspirations.


119. Canadian GP (A Scandanavian Political Crime Thriller)

It's another recommend-o-cast from the Superlicense crew, as we scratch together a recap of the Canadian GP, discover what's wrong with Pirelli, what's wrong with Rod's socks, what's right with Verstappen and play "What famous people do you know?"


118. Monaco GP (Centi, Deci, Milli, Curly & Moe)

Monaco left you with an entertainment deficit? Your boys have you covered, polishing the jewel in F1's crown, Porsche-ing it up in the Superquiz and pulling apart the news and controversies of the week. The con is on!


117. Spanish GP (Kilty pleasures)

Season 2018 took a breather in Spain, giving Hamilton the space he needed to stretch his legs and extend his championship lead. With a suspect Ferrari strategy call and drivers and spinning right round baby right round, we plumb the race for all it's worth, and wrap things up with a real page-turner of a quiz.


116. Azerbaijan GP (A strong embouchure)

In a season this continues to throw split-finger curve-balls, we reunite yet again to discuss the Verstappen/Ricciardo incident, Grosjean merry-go-round, trouble in paradise at Red Bull, the weather (of all things) and do you hear about that intra-team battle that turned sour?


115. Chinese GP (More Verstappen than Verstappen)

With Ricciardo snatching victory from Bottas at the Chinese Grand Prix, we look at the status of number 2 drivers amongst the frontrunners, ask is F1 for hipsters, learn about driver superstitions, get Zach's "trackside" analysis and send our thoughts and best wishes to a former racer who this week made a stunning recovery.


114. Bahrain GP (Clap your hands emoji say yeah)

Was Bahrain a rorschach test for Bottas fans? With the race delivering on all fronts, we dive into the action on and off the track (insulting half of the grid in the process), look to social media for likes and quiz inspiration, and wish Zach bon voyage as he sets sail for next week's Chinese GP.


113. Australian GP (Confused by colours)

Vettel claimed the biscuits in Australia, leaving Hamilton to settle for the water-crackers and Bottas picking at the crumbs. After a polarising race, we make wild judgements about the remainder of the season, shine a spotlight on grand prix promotional events, and we get to the bottom of just how many Verstappens are on the track at any given moment.


112. 2018 Season Launch (WhatsApp group tensions)

F1 roars to life as racing returns to Albert Park. With testing in Barcelona run and done, we discuss who is on form, who has their work cut out for them and how things will shake out on track this season. All that, and we learn about F1's latest rookies, unpack the implications of the F1 drivers WhatsApp group, and Rod shares an update about his latest personal project.


111. 2017 Season Review (Get some awards up your grill, w. Box of Neutrals)

Who was the biggest whinger of 2017? What about the best actor on the grid? Who made the least gracious exit for the season? Will the new logo finally be put to rest? As always we finish the year with a bang as we join forces with Box of Neutrals for our fourth annual roundtable discussion of the F1 season.


110. Abu Dhabi GP (Logo breaking my, logo breaking my, logo breaking my heart)

To wrap up the season we spend longer talking about F1's new logo than the race. We dissect what little action the race provided, speculate wildly about next year (so what's new? Kubica? Yeah... it's looking likely isn't it), farewell Felipe Massa and the season that was F1 2017, but fear not! We'll be returning for our annual season wrap-up/Christmas episode with some surprise guests (yeah, those guys). Join us, won't you?

109. Brazil GP (F1 means undue pressure)

What would you pay for Felipe Massa's underwear, could Hamilton really have won in Brazil (really?), and get the skinny on Rod's fake beef with an official F1 news source. As we crawl toward the finish line this year our tense and weary hosts are digging deep to expose the chocolatey tip of the Cornetto that is the 2017 Formula 1 season.

108. Mexico GP (DJ Lippps Inc.)

We look back at what could be Hamilton's best championship winning year, learn about Brendon Hartley (and induct him as an honorary Australian), update everyone about our latest season of Race/Off, and is Rod a crotchety old man for not liking the podium DJ?

107. United States GP (Firm for Verstappen)

It was hyped to within an inch of it's life, but the US Grand Prix did deliver some interesting talking points even if the drivers' championship remains on life support. We discuss which drivers are staying put, which are moving on and which new-comers look like existing drivers. Did you like the pre-race hype-o-rama? Us neither, and we work out definitely "Which F1 Driver are you?" via a highly scientific measure (the results may surprise you).

106. Japanese Grand Prix (Science Vs Formula 1)

Hamilton has pretty much wrapped up the championship, leaving us to do all the work hyping up the rest of the season and picking through the remains of the Japanese Grand Prix. We farewell Jolyon Palmer, dream of Jiro dreaming of sushi, debate the virtue of taking cameras into the driver briefings and Zach brings peace and enlightenment in the return of the Haikuiz.

105. Malaysia GP (Sebastian with a Vengance)

Verstappen claims his second career victory, Vettel has a mega comeback driver after starting last and ve-ry strange things happened on the cool down lap. This week we look at the race, discuss whether "taking a knee" is a problematic for F1, put qualifying performances under the microscope and unlock the secret to Kubica getting a seat once more.
