Episode #335: Indefensible (2021 F1 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix)

Well.…. That was an ending wasn’t it.

Sorry you’ve had to wait a little bit for this, but we’ve had a backlog of episodes to record over the off-season. But given we’re STILL relentlessly talking about Abu Dhabi a month on, now’s as good a time as any to bring our thoughts to the table.

For just the second time in modern F1 history, two title challengers went into this final round tied.
And even before that final lap, we had a stoking 10tt pole lap from Max Verstappen, a horrible start that changed the entire complexion of that race, an opening lap clash where the stewards made another controversial no-call, and a strategy battle that left Lewis Hamilton more vulnerable than you might think…

..But as you can imagine, half the episode is dedicated to Nicolas Latifis late Safety Car causing clash and everything that came afterwards. Michael Masi breaking the sport’s own regulations in order to guarantee a last lap decider. Verstappen’s Championship and the impact that finish may have had on it. Lewis Hamilton’s exile of social media and losing with dignity, as well as Mercedes, whether they would launch an appeal, and the team boss getting shitfaced after the race had finished (But sssh, don’t tell the admins, they might sue you for data protection.)

We also try to clean up a lot of the loose ends at the end of the season. Kimi Raikkonen’s final race in F1 for example. But we all know what this episode will be about, and I hope despite it being a little late, you enjoy it nonetheless. Plenty more fun content coming in the off-season soon, so enjoy!

January 12, 2022 Alex Albon | My big break

Alex Albon | My big break

Alex Albon has a second shot at Formula 1 with Williams this year, continuing his rocky journey from karting champion to the grand prix paddock.
In our latest My Big Break podcast, he tells Chris Medland how he rose through the ranks of F3 and F2, battling for race wins and championships with Charles Leclerc, George Russell and Lando Norris.
Albon recounts losing Red Bull backing after a tricky first year in Formula Renault, before picking himself up, graduating to GP3 and challenging Leclerc for the 2015 title. He explains why his friendship with George Russell resulted in a broken collarbone that wrecked his debut F2 season; the goodwill that brought him a second year in the championship; and the bold move — combined with a timely win — that brought him back into the Red Bull fold and into an F1 seat just before a switch to Formula E.
Ahead of the 2022 F1 season, the upbeat, grounded Albon shows since again why he’s one of racing’s most popular figures.

Ep.205 – Scott Sharp

Enjoying a long-lasting and diverse career, Scott Sharp went from a staple of Trans-Am, to a staple of IndyCar, to finishing his career in the IMSA ranks. Most importantly, he won in all of them… a lot. A true American racing icon, Scott’s ability in the car is only matched by his relationship and business acumen outside of it, which has helped him maintain some of the longest running sponsorships in the sport, and even running his own racing team. Lunch was served at Sailor’s Return in Stuart, FL, with the song “Layaway” by Chief Keef & T-Shyne taking us out. Thanks again to Continental Tire, Acura and Valvoline for making it all happen.

Ep.204 – Jack Hewitt

Jack Hewitt is unlike any other in the sport, which is probably for the better? A dirt track legend, Jack has no shortage of accolades in different dirt track categories, including winning the famed Triple Crown and being the first to win all four categories in one night at the Four Crown Nationals. He’s probably most know, however, for his mouth. You’ll have to listen to understand Dinner was served at Three Bananas in Crescent City, FL with the song “Bad” by Royal Deluxe taking us out. Thanks again to Continental Tire, Acura and Valvoline for making it all happen.
