Post-F1 Paths - The comeback

Sun, 10 Dec 2017 15:02:45 +0000

Hello, welcome to Sidepodcast, this is a brand new mini series called Post-F1 Paths, I bet you can’t guess what it’s about! I’m your host, Christine, and I’ll be guiding you through seven short shows taking a look at what drivers choose to do once they’ve decided, or it is decided for them, that their time in F1 is over. This first episode is based on something we’ve seen happen a lot in 2017. What to do when you retire from F1? Come straight back, of course!

Wed, 06 Dec 2017 19:58:31 +0000

Daniel Abt crossed the finish line first for the second race of the Hong Kong double header, but his victory was snatched away from him when the FIA disqualified the driver. The reason for the DQ was an issue with the barcodes on the car not matching with the FIA's technical passport.

Rosenqvist wins second Hong Kong race after Abt disqualification

Sun, 03 Dec 2017 14:51:00 +0000

Felix Rosenqvist earned himself pole position for the second race in Hong Kong, but the Mahindra driver spun on the first lap and dropped himself down to 11th place. That was after a safety car start, where the cars trawled around for one lap due to a failure of the starting lights. The action got going, but wasn't as frantic as yesterday's race thanks to the extra laps and fuel saving required.

Sat, 02 Dec 2017 15:36:00 +0000

Jean-Éric Vergne had pole position for the first round of the 2017/18 Formula E season, but he lost out to Sam Bird after an early red flag period halted the race. The front runners got through the first few corners cleanly but at the back, Lotterer hit the barriers and caused a four-car traffic jam as the others couldn't get past.

Much of the focus of Formula E tyre supplier Michelin is on season five of the sport, as they are set to introduce tyres for the brand new next-generation cars. In the meantime, though, they have agreed to extend their partnership with the sport until the end of the 2021 season, bringing their total tenure up to six years.

BMW continue partnership to supply official vehicles

Fri, 01 Dec 2017 19:59:18 +0000

Formula E and BMW have agreed an extension to their partnership which has been in existence since the sport began, with the German manufacturer supplying the official vehicles. That's the safety and medical car to you and me, and it's a good looking one. The BMW i is a fully electric car, naturally, and the i8 provides safety car duties whilst the i3 is the smaller medical car.

Thu, 16 Nov 2017 20:50:33 +0000

Former F1 racer Kamui Kobayashi will join the Andretti team for the first round of this year’s Formula E championship, lining up alongside Antonio Felix da Costa. He’s not expected to run the full season, but a one off appearance should be great for the driver, the team and of course, the fans.

CEO of Formula E, Alejandro Agag, has warned that he may be forced to take the sport out of the UK overnight if the Brexit deal isn't satisfactory in terms of tax and employment clauses. He said: "We have a lot of expats that work in the company, and a lot of our contracts come from the European Union in terms of sponsorship, so if there is not a deal in terms of tax and employment, we will leave."

Sun, 25 Jun 2017 22:17:00 +0100

Coming up on this show, we discuss three part rage, another change of attitude and several surprising top threes. It was a packed race so naturally we have a packed podcast full of discussion about the top three on the podium in Baku, and many of the events that allowed them to get there.

Fri, 26 May 2017 22:02:00 +0100

Following the feedback we received after our last show, we have attempted to rectify the situation by getting the experts in to talk all about the Indy 500. If you've never seen any IndyCar racing before, like at least one half of the Sidepodcast pair, then pay attention as Pat and Lukeh guide us all through what to expect over the next couple of days.

The Great Debates - Series 1 Omnibus

Mon, 01 May 2017 12:05:04 +0100

Hello and welcome to a new mini series from Sidepodcast, The Great Debates. Formula One is surrounded by endless discussion, speculation, rumour and opinions, but there are some subjects that are more deep rooted than others, some that go right to the heart of what makes F1 the spectacle that it is today – for good, or for bad.

The Great Debates - Can you compare F1 eras?

Thu, 27 Apr 2017 18:00:00 +0100

Hello there, F1 friends, and welcome to The Great Debates, the latest mini series from Sidepodcast. The intention here is to shine a light on topics that cause conversation amongst everyone involved in F1, always have done and likely always will do. We have covered six topics in our journey so far and now we’re on to our seventh and final debate, and it’s a big one.

The Great Debates - What is the ideal length of an F1 season?

Wed, 26 Apr 2017 18:00:00 +0100

This is The Great Debates, a mini series by Sidepodcast, and you’re listening to the sixth of seven episodes. In this series we’re looking at some of the topics that are endlessly debated, usually with no definitive answer and that’s good because I’m not looking to provide answers, just shed light on the conversation. Yesterday was all about circuits and today we’re continuing that theme but moving to a different aspect of the F1 calendar.

The Great Debates - Should classic F1 circuits be so highly rated?

Tue, 25 Apr 2017 18:00:00 +0100

Hello and welcome to the fifth episode of The Great Debates, a mini series brought to you by Sidepodcast in search of the reasons behind some of the endlessly discussed topics. In this series, we’re not looking for answers – these are debates that almost have no answer – but instead highlighting the subjects that most F1 fans have some kind of opinion on. We’ve covered races, drivers and teams and now it’s time to look at another aspect of the F1 circus.

Sun, 23 Apr 2017 18:00:00 +0100

Welcome to The Great Debates, a mini series brought to you by Sidepodcast, focusing on some of the hot topics that surround Formula One that may or may not ever be solved.

Sat, 22 Apr 2017 18:00:00 +0100

Hello there, welcome to The Great Debates, a mini series brought to you by Sidepodcast. This is the second episode where we will delve into one of the great mysteries of Formula One – not to find answers, but simply to ponder all sides of an ongoing argument. Yesterday, we looked at a fundamental building block of the sport itself, today, we’re focusing in on a specific part of the race weekend.

The Great Debates - Is F1 entertainment or sport?

Fri, 21 Apr 2017 21:10:00 +0100

Hello and welcome to a new mini series from Sidepodcast, The Great Debates. Formula One is surrounded by endless discussion, speculation, rumour and opinions, but there are some subjects that are more deep rooted than others, some that go right to the heart of what makes F1 the spectacle that it is today – for good, or for bad. This series, we aim to investigate some of those debates and whilst not definitively answering the questions, at least making sure they are asked.

F1 Debrief - Go as fast as you can and hope for the best

Sat, 15 Apr 2017 19:11:00 +0100

On this show, we talk about Alonso's big news regarding a stint in the Indy 500, and the reaction from fellow drivers and team bosses about this decision. We ponder how McLaren will get on in Monaco without him, even with the return of the super fit but slightly rusty Jenson Button.

Media Files:

F1 Debrief - I really give that a thumbs up

Mon, 10 Apr 2017 22:45:00 +0100

On this show, we discuss the new style of Formula One, from the lower rear wings to the wider tyres, and everything that brings to the race track. After two events of the 2017 season, we're excited to see what's been happening and to ponder what the rest of the year might bring.

F1 Debrief - Long live F1!

Mon, 23 Jan 2017 22:26:00 +0000

It's the first Debrief of 2017, and what better topic to be discussing than the change of leadership for the commercial side of Formula One. Bernie Ecclestone is stepping aside at long last and letting someone else take control of the sport we know and mostly love.

F1 Debrief - He can just write his name in the history book and walk away

Fri, 16 Dec 2016 22:50:56 +0000

It's been a while since there was some sincerely shocking F1 news that made you sit up in your seat and do a double take. With Rosberg's retirement, it's only natural we took time out to talk about it, so coming up on this show, we accept the challenge of a listener, ponder outside bets for Mercedes, and the possibility of a fabulous 2017.

Fri, 11 Nov 2016 23:38:00 +0000

On this show we discuss robot drivers, genius suggestions, and get replaced by a better podcaster. Two of our favourite people have been talking about similar topics to do with F1, so we thought we'd get in on the act. Following on from a fabulous guest spot by Giggles, we discuss what F1 is missing at the moment and how we can get it back.

F1 Debrief - The man's a walking cliché

Sat, 08 Oct 2016 00:02:00 +0100

Media Files:

F1 Debrief - Do we have any feedback on this?

Mon, 07 Mar 2016 19:50:20 +0000

After just one show, the feedback came flooding in, so here we are with a collection of emails, tweets and voicemails to discuss the change to the qualifying format as well as Red Bull's paint job, Kimi Räikkönen's answer to everything and taking the first step on the journey to better head protection.

Fri, 26 Feb 2016 20:43:00 +0000

Sidepodcast returns for a new year of podcasting, starting with a discussion on the big news this week - the potential changes to qualifying.
