Melbourne, Australia


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




100. Hungary GP (Thanks a tonne)

For our 100th episode spectacular Rod and Zach reflect on what could be yet again the turning point of the season. Will Hamilton rue the day he sacrificed points to his teammate? Will Ferrari being Ferrari give them the edge in the championship battle? And how much has the show really changed in the last 100 episodes?

99. British GP (A son, a daughter, a pineapple)

Hamilton completely bossed it at his home race and reduced the championship deficit to almost nothing. From the Toro Rosso kerfuffle to the Force India predicament, the boys churn through the entire race weekend, reflect on F1 Live: London, and smash out a Superquiz that'll bring you all up to speed with a gifted driver of prominence.

98. Austrian GP (Hashtag it's not a corner)

Austria was a good race if your name rhymes with Saltteri or Flebastian, and damage control at best if it rhymes with Kewis. In F1 news we ask is Verstappen headed to Ferrari, is Silverstone headed to the scrap heap and is Italian F1 Racing a thing? With some lackluster races of late, Rod looks into some examples of when Formula 1 failed to deliver (clearly they need to find some weird grip).

97. Azerbaijan GP (Giving no quarter, whilst also giving some)

Baku turned up an embarrassment of riches for your humble podcasters. Emotions aside, we pick apart the Vettel/Hamilton controversy, dig into the history of disqualifications in the Superquiz and toast the reversal of fortunes for the race in the land of fire.

96. Canadian GP (Middle-aged men in moustaches making dad jokes)

Stroll in the points, Hamilton on point and everyone else pointing the finger at Sergio Perez. Hear the latest F1 tradition that Liberty Media have revived to improve the show and if you get every question right you will receive your very own, 100% legit super licence(*). * - Subject to your satisfying the remainder of the FIA's conditions, obtaining their approval and you bankrolling all expenses incurred.

95. Monaco GP (A Taki Inoue Baby Onesie)

So Controversy. Much Outrage. As usual, it's up to Rod and Zach to cut through the nonsense to deliver the cold, hard facts of what really went down on the streets of Monaco, only for the banter to dissolve into a completely different kind of nonsense. For Zach's birthday race, Rod delivers a quiz takes you back in time, and find out who won (or lost, most accurately) the Monaco wager.

94. Spanish GP (A nard-smash simulator)

We should have known the Spanish Grand Prix was going to deliver the goods. Not only did (almost) everyone bring their major engine and aero upgrades, but the racing got an upgrade. Just a bee's dick separated Vettel and Hamilton in qualifying and a race either of them could have won. With plenty of juicy stories up and down the grid, we also manage to place F1 merchandise under the microscope in the Superquiz, and a last-minute wager is sure spice up next week's Monaco GP.

93. Russian GP (A white-knuckled thrill ride)

How was that finish! Finnish? Whatever. It was a fantastic result for Valtteri and even the Ferrari boys were happy for the guy, So can we extract a feast from the amuse bouche that was the most boring race in living memory? We utilise the Superquiz to get just a little bit closer to the drivers, and if you ever wanted to know Rod's spirit animal this is the episode for you!

92. Bahrain GP (Comparing chalk and chocolate)

Vettel is two wins from three races and just generally loving life! Join us to discuss Alonso's Indy 500 flirtation, why Mercedes were always going to struggle against Ferrari and we examine some questionable retirements in the Superquiz.

91. Chinese GP (Ultimately it was almost the right decision)

Well it was a steady victory for Hamilton and Mercedes, but that was far from the full story. Beyond the race we find out which team is literally 3D printing parts, farewell the Malaysian Grand Prix and ask "Who cares about Practice?".

90. Australian GP (Record scratch, it's finger boy)

Yawwwwn, just another Hamilton pole and win... WHAT?!? Zach takes the reigns and Rod brings a little bit of the glitz and glamor of the F1 Paddock into your ears whether you asked him to or not. Find out if the threat from Ferrari is real, how much Paddock Club passes cost, and which F1 driver loves dirty jokes.

Dirft: Season 2017 launch special episode

89. 2017 Pre-season review (Trouser Stretching Excitement w. guest Fernando Campos)

Time to settle back into your Formula One viewing nook and join us for a crash course on driver movements and first-impressions of this season's liveries. Celebrating the return of Felipe Massa (and lamenting the loss of his namesake Felipe Nasr) is old friend of the show Fernando Campos from the Podcast F1 Brazil crew.

88 - 2016 Season Review (with special guests Box of Neutrals)

How about that for a crazy post-season? Rod and Zach couldn't possibly cover all the action from such a bumper season, so we joined forces with old mates Box of Neutrals for another sparkling season recap featuring our Top 5 moments from the year.

87 - Abu Dhabi GP (Drinking celebratory whiskey sours)

What a final act the 2016 season had in store for us! We discuss whether Hamilton was "right" to disobey his team, reflect on the battle that nearly brought Mercedes to its knees at several points throughout the season and ask what lies ahead, then Zach brings it home with our pun-ultimate Superquiz.

86 - Brazilian GP (Red Bull's reproduction program)

Nobody would have held it against you if you nodded off during the extremely long Brazilian Grand Prix. If you missed any of the action never fear, Rod and Zach bring you all the crashes and splashes of the raintastic race. In one of our final opportunities to do so we have a peak behind the curtain of the career of Felipe Massa in this week's Superquiz and speculate about Red Bull's young driver breeding program.

85 - Mexican GP (Sebastian Vettel, knower of regulations)

Even we aren't sure who really finished 3rd in Mexico. Instead we entertained further rumours about the driver market, christened F1's young speedsters in the superquiz, and learned more about Zach's social etiquette than he is comfortable with.

84 - United States GP (You call yourselves F1 podcasters)

Lewis Hamilton struck back in Austin which just shows what he can do when he sets his mind to it. Rod and Zach return to deconstruct the race, ponder the end game for Kvyat at Toro Rosso and can Rod fashion an entire F1-related quiz around Taylor Swift?

83 - Japanese GP (2 Silent, 2 Furious)

Has Hamilton fully cooked it? What's a better solution than blue flags? Is the Haikuquiz the greatest one of all time? All these questions and several others and answered to varying degree as Rod and Zach cover all the colour and controversy from the Japanese Grand Prix.

82 - Malaysian GP (Whose yoghurt is this?)

What an exciting time to be an Australian F1 fan! Not only has the championship swung wildly into Rosberg favour, there was plenty of controversy from the race and if that article about how a bolt on an F1 car is engineered then we have a Superquiz for you!
