Thu, 27 Apr 2017 18:00:00 +0100Hello 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.
Wed, 26 Apr 2017 18:00:00 +0100This 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.
Tue, 25 Apr 2017 18:00:00 +0100Hello 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.

Sat, 22 Apr 2017 18:00:00 +0100Hello 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.
Fri, 21 Apr 2017 21:10:00 +0100Hello 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.
Sat, 15 Apr 2017 19:11:00 +0100On 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.
Mon, 10 Apr 2017 22:45:00 +0100On 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.
Mon, 23 Jan 2017 22:26:00 +0000It'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.
Fri, 16 Dec 2016 22:50:56 +0000It'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 +0000On 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.
Sat, 08 Oct 2016 00:02:00 +0100F1 Debrief makes a welcome and musical return to talk about all things lyrical. This week we're discussing the curious case of the missing McLarens, the prancing horse with no name and why some drivers are just phoning it in.
Mon, 07 Mar 2016 19:50:20 +0000After 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 +0000Sidepodcast returns for a new year of podcasting, starting with a discussion on the big news this week - the potential changes to qualifying. Whilst the exact details are still unknown, we delve into the topic with relish, pondering how on the face of it the changes seem minimal but as you dig deeper, you find many people who will be affected by these session structure tweaks.
Fri, 15 May 2015 20:52:00 +0100Sidepodcast's 2015 break takes a break of its own as we hustle a quick podcast out the door regarding the FIA's recent statement of a potential refuelling return. As big fans of refuelling before it departed, we now discuss our mixed reactions to the possibility of a return and ponder just what the governing body are thinking with their latest batch of changes to the sport.
