Why Microphones To Enhance F1 Engine Sounds Is A Good Idea

10/4/2017
More
Is Formula 1 going too artificial by thinking of introducing ceramic microphones to enhance the sounds of the F1 engines? Or is it an acceptable solution from a sports broadcast point of view? Unlike the DRS, this is one solution that we don't mind supporting the sport for. In this week's episode of the Inside Line F1 Podcast, we wonder if the race organisers of the Malaysian Grand Prix blurted out the absolute truth about the sport, while also claiming that they wouldn't play host to...

12/13/2016
More
Nico Hulkenberg debuts on the Inside Line F1 Podcast! In the off-season, we will bring to you a few Formula 1 drivers talking about their favourite radio messages and jokes from the sport. After Nico Rosberg and David Coulthard's successful interviews on the Inside Line F1 Podcast, we now have the famous 'Hulk'. In this week's episode, Hulkenberg tells us his funniest radio message, how he found Juan Pablo Montoya funny in Austria in 2001 and his struggles in trying to remember his favourite...

Formula 1's Game Of Thrones

12/2/2016
More
Nico Rosberg's shock retirement has just kicked off Formula 1's silly season to fill THE throne that will be left vacant by our reigning World Champion in 2017. Why the hell did Rosberg quit? We'd have loved to see him defend his title against Lewis Hamilton. But is this exactly why he quit? We consider his move 'ballsy', given that quitting at the top is not everyone's cup of tea. But has he made sport suddenly look like a sales target? We discuss this in our special episode of the Inside...

What Will Mercedes Do With Lewis Hamilton?

11/30/2016
More
What will Mercedes do with Lewis Hamilton after his public act of disobedience in the season-ending Abu Dhabi Grand Prix? To us, all of it seems to be extra PR that Mercedes, Hamilton and even Formula 1 are enjoying. But seriously, what should they Mercedes do? As for Nico Rosberg, he settled the 'worthy World Champion' debate by successfully overtaking Max Verstappen (yes, he overtook Verstappen)! In this episode, we also speak about Jenson Button's farewell race and how a retirement before...

Rosberg Wins, But Was Hamilton Fair?

11/27/2016
More
In a special and unplanned episode of the Inside Line F1 Podcast, we celebrate Nico Rosberg's first-ever Formula 1 World Championship victory. We debate whether Lewis Hamilton's tactic to slow down Rosberg was fair. A clash of objectives between a team trying to win every race it can and its driver trying to win his fourth Drivers' Championship! How will Mercedes settle Hamilton's disobedience of a team instruction? And should Mercedes have interfered this much in the race given that the...

The Best Driver Did Not Win

11/22/2016
More
As the Hamilton vs. Rosberg title battle goes down to the wire, the big question is who will win the 2016 World Drivers' Championship. While the odds may be stacked in Rosberg’s favour, this is Formula 1 – and nothing’s over till it’s over. Could Max Verstappen and Red Bull Racing be Lewis Hamilton’s best ally in the ‘duel of the desert'? Here’s a prediction we’re going to stick our heads out and make – respective of the outcome, when fans look back on the season they’ll probably believe...

Let's Not Belittle The Formula 1 Drivers' Championship

11/8/2016
More
The 2016 Brazilian Grand Prix could be a Grand Prix of firsts for the Mercedes drivers. Lewis Hamilton could win his first-ever Brazilian Grand Prix OR Nico Rosberg could win his first-ever Formula 1 Drivers' Championship. Let's hope the 'best driver' wins. In which case, shouldn't it then be Fernando Alonso? We're loving the suspense and surprise of title fight this season and don't mind it being taken forward to Abu Dhabi. After all, there's finally some surprise in the sport other than...

And That's How The FIA Avoided The Shoey On The Podium

11/1/2016
More
FIA was sneaky in its ways to keep the shoey off the podium. We had an instance where 3 drivers were classified 3rd at least once. Thank you FIA, for embarrassing Formula 1. And thank you (not!) for ensuring the shoey man doesn't find himself on the podium, during the podium. Daniel Ricciardo's shoey was missed in Mexico, but is it time for a new party trick? We're excited to know what it could be and how he's going to up that game! The Mexico Grand Prix will be remembered for the FIA's...

The FIA Bans 'The Verstappen'

10/25/2016
More
The United States Grand Prix was a joke in itself. The only saving grace was the brief wheel-to-wheel battle between Carlos Sainz Jr. and Fernando Alonso. The BIG chatter from the weekend was the FIA banning 'The Verstappen' and Venus Williams snubbing Martin Brundle. Shame on you, Williams. (Martin Brundle drove a race for the Williams F1 Team in 1988 - had Venus Williams known this fact, would she still have snubbed Brundle?) How do Formula 1 drivers ensure that they don't become victims...

Nico Rosberg Should Invite Nicole Sherzinger To The US GP

10/17/2016
More
Is the United States Grand Prix Lewis Hamilton's new home race? Going purely by his Instagram feed, we'd like to believe so. How many of Hamilton's reported girlfriends would cheer him in the Paddock? Would 'Joey' be visiting too? If so, they should broadcast a live car-to-television radio chat between Joey and Hamilton. We actually try simulate what this conversation could be like. In the 'Race to the White House', who would Hamilton vote for - Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton? Also, would...

Will Hamilton Still Back Verstappen's Aggressive Moves?

10/13/2016
More
Max Verstappen pulled off a 'Verstappen' on Lewis Hamilton at Suzuka. This made us wonder, will Lewis Hamilton still back Max Verstappen's aggressive moves? The Hamilton vs. Verstappen battle was our highlight moment! The FIA had a chat with Verstappen and told him that they're 'watching' him. Well, if not for Verstappen, who have the FIA been watching all of 2016? This lad has had our eyes glued on him. Maybe, Baby Vettel is now THE Vettel for Red Bull Racing. The Rosberg vs. Hamilton...

Will The FIA Ban The Shoey?

10/2/2016
More
Nico Rosberg is lucky that Mercedes built him a tank that went through the 2016 Malaysian Grand Prix undamaged. Rosberg was lucky on multiple other counts too, including that he had a clean getaway (the Mercedes cars can’t take that for granted anymore) and the two VSC periods that helped him climb back up the order. Daniel Ricciardo had a great result to win the race. Will drivers not want to be on the podium with Ricciardo though, given his love for the ‘shoey’ (gross!)? Mark Webber was...

Tim Cook Could Replace Ron Dennis At Mclaren?

9/26/2016
More
Yes, another one of those titles where we urge you to judge our podcast by the title, or not. Disclaimer: we’re only having fun and we hope you do so too. In the Apple-Mclaren story, we wonder if Tim Cook could be the man to turn Mclaren around. And how is it that despite attracting iconic brands such as Honda, Fernando Alonso and now Apple (possibly), Mclaren isn’t able to repeat its iconic performances. However, if Apple do get involved, let’s hope that their creative team comes up with...

Pokemon GO Monsters At Formula 1 Races?

9/20/2016
More
With Jenson Button’s help we’ve cracked the perfect idea to bring younger audiences to F1 races – install Pokemon Go monsters at every Grand Prix! Maybe they’re already working on this and decided to live test in Singapore on the perfect target audience, Max Verstappen. Yes, we are referring to the ‘Godzilla’ on track. Although, this novel idea of ours may lead to more jaywalkers on track - like the marshal in Singapore (but seriously, shouldn't the FIA be penalised for this incident?)!...

Verstappen vs. Ricciardo For Victory In Singapore, Possible?

9/13/2016
More
Mercedes to be challenged in Singapore, really? Or is this yet another Ferrari-inspired pre-race PR hype? Singapore has been tagged as Red Bull Racing’s track, and boy are we excited! Will we get to see some Verstappen vs. Ricciardo action (and will Red Bull Racing let it be a fair fight!)? To keep his championship hopes alive, Nico Rosberg must fight against all odds in Singapore. Forget winning, he's not been on the podium here since 8 years! At the same time, he had his ‘first-ever’ wins...

Nico Rosberg Suffers From Major FOMO?

9/5/2016
More
Nico Rosberg has done it again – surprised the hell out of us, that is. He won his first ever race at Monza, right on the heels of his first ever win at Spa. He also won his first Driver of the Day award! Is his FOMO, or ‘Fear of Missing Out’ driving him? The BIGGER question is, will it culminate into his first ever World Championship victory too? The Inside Line F1 Podcast turns football analysts as we analyze the friendly match between 'F1 Stars vs. All Stars', held on the pit-straight in...

Both Mercedes Drivers Got Lucky In Spa

8/30/2016
More
Yes, we’re the first ones to say it – both Mercedes drivers got lucky in Spa. Nico Rosberg won his 20th Grand Prix because of Lewis Hamilton’s grid penalties. In the same breath, we’ve got to agree that Hamilton was lucky to make it to the podium (from P21) thanks to the Safety Car period and the red flag. Though we wonder why Lewis Hamilton didn’t win the 44 lap Grand Prix, if 44 is his lucky number! Only 9 points separate the duo, which way will the remainder of the season go? Formula 1...

Max Verstappen Obeyed Team Orders

8/3/2016
More
Max Verstappen vs. Daniel Ricciardo seems more fun than the battle of the Mercedes drivers. Well, it will seem so till Red Bull Racing decide to play favourites. Since the flavour of the season is ‘Verstappen’, did Nico Rosberg get penalised for pulling a Max Verstappen on Max Verstappen? Well, he learned it the hard way that NO ONE overtakes Max Verstappen! And on that note, we tell you why Verstappen obeying a team order isn’t too bad (for him) after all. Nico Rosberg might need a sports...

Kimi Raikkonen Finally Wins Something

7/26/2016
More
Kimi Raikkonen finally won something - the ‘Driver of the Day’ in the Hungarian Grand Prix. Did Max Verstappen's fans vote for him as a 'thank you' gesture for not overtaking their driver again? And of course, we applaud Lewis Hamilton’s perfect race start - one that took him nearly 10 races to master. Not to forget, his ‘international hand gesture’ to a lesser known Esteban Gutierrez. Nico Rosberg’s third (or fourth?) consecutive date with the FIA Stewards? Did they pull him up three hours...

Hamilton & Verstappen, F1's Dream Team?

Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen, what rock stars! Both drivers were on top if their game at the British Grand Prix. Can any constructor manage to pull off the dream team pairing of Hamilton and Verstappen? Hamilton nearly collided with the Safety Car, clearly he is most susceptible to crash with another Mercedes when it is leading! After Max Verstappen’s gutsy overtake on Nico Rosberg, his popularity among British fans has risen exponentially. Speaking of popularity, Verstappen won the...
