32: Mick Schumacher To Join The Red Bull Junior Program?

9/20/2018
More
Helmut Marko has denied being in talks with Mick Schumacher to join the Red Bull Junior Driver program. Could this actually be a hint that Red Bull are already in talks with the young Schumacher? There's going to be a race to sign him - who will win this one? In this week’s episode of the [Inside Line F1 Podcast](http://bit.ly/ilf1ponkf1b), we have Ashley give us a brief summary of the Singapore Grand Prix and her experiences from the Marina Bay Circuit. Also, we discuss the ‘mini race’ in...

31: Leclerc Exclusive: 'I Am Not That Famous Yet!'

9/12/2018
More
After weeks of rumours, the Raikkonen-Leclerc swap was finally announced. Hats off to Ferrari for making an exception and realising that an early investment in Charles Leclerc's progression in the world of Formula 1 is only going to pay them early dividends. But is this also a sign from Ferrari that they are beginning to lose hope in Sebastian Vettel's erring ways? In this week's episode of the Inside Line F1 Podcast, we have bytes from the man-on-the-move himself, Charles Leclerc. We met...

30: Kimi Raikkonen For Vice President

9/9/2018
More
Will Ferrari re-sign Kimi Raikkonen? Or will Kimi Raikkonen resign from Ferrari and Formula 1? There are tons of rumours doing the rounds last week and while we ignore them all, we wonder if Kimi Raikkonen would actually be well suited to become Vice President. In this week's episode of the Inside Line F1 Podcast, Mithila and Kunal argue over Raikkonen's possible extension, Nico Rosberg's sudden love for Lewis Hamilton, the possibility of drivers becoming title sponsors of their home Grands...

29: Ocon Exclusive: 'Hope To Retain Force India Seat'

9/3/2018
More
Where could Esteban Ocon race in 2019? For Formula 1 fans, this question is as intriguing as 'who could win the Drivers' Championship in 2018?' - and given how the driver silly season has panned out, let's hope that Ocon gets a suitable car that compliments his talent. In this week's episode of the Inside Line F1 Podcast, we have a special guest - Esteban Ocon himself. The Frenchman rates his performances against Sergio Perez, he answers whether he has done enough to retain his seat at Force...

28: Fernando Alonso Can't Be F1's Ambassador

8/30/2018
More
Formula 1 hopes that Fernando Alonso will be the sport's ambassador despite choosing to race elsewhere in 2019\. Well, we're certain Alonso (also Briatore?) wouldn't mind the 'ambassadorship' if it comes with some money & maybe a guarantee of a faster car in the future? Either way, why Formula 1 would ask Alonso to be their ambassador baffles us. The double World Champion has only had negative things to say about the sport for the last many years. In this week's episode of the [Inside Line...

27: Where Will Racing Point Force India Finish In 2018?

8/24/2018

Hats off to Formula 1 for pulling off the unthinkable! Is Force India's resurrection the first instance where every stakeholder of the sport has come together and acted with the _'sport first'_ intention? It will be good to see the _Pink Panthers_ continue racing in 2018 and we're putting our bets on them not finishing last in the Constructors' Championship despite having all their points docked off. In this week's episode of the [Inside Line F1 Podcast](http://bit.ly/ilf1ponkf1b), we bring...

The [Inside Line F1 Podcast](http://bit.ly/ilf1ponkf1b) returns after a sunny summer break from the beaches of Greece. In this week's episode, we commemorate 25 years since James Hunt and who better than his son Freddie to narrate stories, incidents and the passion of the 1976 Formula 1 World Champion. Did _Rush_ add to Hunt's popularity? And what if social media existed back in the Hunt-Lauda era? Know more in our **Hunt exclusive episode**. We also talk to Freddie about his racing career,...

25: Mclaren Approached Lewis Hamilton Too?

7/26/2018
More
Lewis Hamilton, Formula 1's reigning World Champion and super star, recently admitted that a 'rival' team attempted to sign him for 2019 and 2020\. In this week's episode of the [Inside Line F1 Podcast](http://bit.ly/ilf1ponkf1b), we speculate if this 'rival' was Mclaren indeed. Given their love for PR and attempts at signing high-profile drivers, should we be surprised? Also in this episode, we discuss the ONLY pitfall of the double and triple headers in Formula 1, the driver sillier season...

Nico Hulkenberg, one of two German drivers racing in the 2018 Formula 1 Season, joined us on this special episode of the [Inside Line F1 Podcast](http://bit.ly/ilf1ponkf1b). We discussed Hulkenberg's career prospects, relationship with Renault and Carlos Sainz Jr., the possibilities of racing for either Ferrari or Mercedes and even about his elusive podium. Hulkenberg also expresses his positivity on the changes being introduced in Formula 1 from the 2019 Formula 1 Season and who he would...

23: Motorsport's Quadruple Crown Cometh?

7/18/2018
More
If Motorsport makes it to the Olympics, would winning 'gold' become the Quadruple Crown of Motorsport? In that case, we know one driver that would chase this crown irrespective of what category of racing it may be and of course, irrespective of how old he would be then. No brownie points for guessing who we are referring to! In this week's episode of the Inside Line F1 Podcast, we discuss the 2018 German Grand Prix, Renault's profit making Formula 1 operations, why Red Bull Racing should be...

22: Points For Everyone? Please, No, F1

7/11/2018
More
The 'points for all' topic is disturbing. No, please don't go down this road, Formula 1\. We've gone from awarding points to top-6 to top-8 and now 50% of the grid (top-10) scores points. By increasing the base of points scorers to 100% (all-20), we will go from incentivising drivers to win or finish higher to simply just finishing races. Is this Formula 1's way of retaining Fernando Alonso? In this week's episode of the [Inside Line F1 Podcast](http://bit.ly/ilf1ponkf1b), the 'What Wolff...

Welcome to the world of podcasts, Formula 1\. We've had your back for the last 6 years and now we look forward to you increasing the size of the pie for all of us ;-) In this week's episode of the [Inside Line F1 Podcast](http://bit.ly/ilf1ponkf1b), we wonder if Sebastian Vettel will conclude the triple header by scoring a hat-trick of penalties; or can he actually win the 2018 British Grand Prix? Fernando Alonso holds the key to the driver market for 2019, or does he? Btw, we speculate if...

20: Charles Leclerc Has Outperformed Max Verstappen

Charles Leclerc has had a phenomenal start to his debut season in Formula 1 - better than Max Verstappen even! In this week's episode of the [Inside Line F1 Podcast](http://bit.ly/ilf1ponkf1b), Mithila and Kunal do some math and tell you why. Well, even if they could be evenly matched on talent, is maturity one key area where Leclerc scores higher? We know such stories create controversies, but they are still worth visiting. Also in this episode: we try and calculate how old Fernando Alonso...

In a bonus episode before the 2018 French Grand Prix, we have the senior-most French driver in Formula 1, Romain Grosjean, as a guest on the [Inside Line F1 Podcast](http://bit.ly/ilf1ponkf1b). In this week's special episode, we speak to the Haas F1 Team driver about his season so far, emotions about finally having a home race in France, ambitions for a Ferrari drive and his contract extension talks for 2019. Also, Grosjean, who stood on the podium of the 2013 Indian Grand Prix, has a...

18: Red Bull Demote Renault, Promote Honda

Renault has joined the list of demotions at Red Bull Racing, while Honda find themselves with an unexpected promotion. In this week's episode of the [Inside Line F1 Podcast](http://bit.ly/ilf1ponkf1b), Mithila and Kunal wonder what would crack first in 2019 - the Honda engine or Max Verstappen? (But of course, we're kidding!). On a serious note, Red Bull Racing seem to have a made a sensible decision, let's see if Daniel Ricciardo thinks so too. Has Winnie Harlow triggered the FIA to replace...

5/31/2018

The business of Formula 1 seems to be changing. With Liberty Media looking to restructure team payments, budget caps, standardisation, etc. - is this the best time to invest in a Formula 1 team? Will owning a team finally be about its business rather than passion? We discuss more in this week's episode of the [Inside Line F1 Podcast](http://bit.ly/ilf1ponkf1b). Daniel 'Shoey' Ricciardo is the hottest property in the paddock these days; we actually celebrated his win in Monaco with a shoey!...

After 3 back-to-back races of absolute chaos, excitement and unexpected results, is Formula 1 finally Formula Fun? Hats off to Liberty Media for not resting on the laurels and great races in Bahrain, China and Azerbaijan and for forcing through (literally!) the aero changes for 2019\. Whether they deliver on-track or not, 10/10 for trying.

14: Ferrari Should Be Scrutinised For Ruining Raikkonen's Races

4/25/2018

The FIA has put Ferrari under scrutiny for various reasons. We think, the FIA should also scrutinise Ferrari for ruining Kimi Raikkonen's races in 2018\. Maybe for 2016 & 2017 too? In this week's episode of the Inside Line F1 Podcast, Mithila and Kunal tell you why Daniel Ricciardo should leave Red Bull Racing. Has Mercedes lost out to Ferrari in the race to sign Ricciardo? Will Ferrari's stepchild treatment of Kimi Raikkonen make Ricciardo wary of signing with the Scuderia? Will Fernando...

There we said it, well someone had to. We know Max Verstappen has been smug about working with a sports psychologist, but maybe it is time that he does? Some of the world's top athletes do so and Verstappen is on his journey to becoming one - this is one vital support system that he should definitely consider as we all wait for his temperament to come on par with his talent! _PS: We are in no way pointing out a flaw or a shortcoming in Max, IF ONLY people hear the podcast BEFORE commenting;...
