Episode #490: Back-To-Bagnaia – The 2023 MotoGP Season Review

It’s about time we put a bow on Season Review Season, as Dre and Cam go wild and review the good, the bad and the ugly of MotoGP in 2023, as the season eventually went back, to Bagnaia!

We go factory by factory across the grid. The end of an era as Honda loses their Shohei Ohtani with Marc Marquez leaving for Gresini, and what happens to the genuinely talented team left behind. What about Yamaha? Are they about to walk into their own Marquez situation, but with Fabio Quartararo instead? And does Yamaha now have the best lineup in the sport with Alex RIns joining over?

Aprilia kinda spun their wheels this season, beating Yamaha but losing out to KTM. But their riders are still strong, is that enough? And what do we make of the Trackhouse move now its official that the NASCAR outfit are joining the grid in 2024?

KTM themselves are in an interesting place, after moving up to second, but a distant second. Is Brad Binder alone enough to close the gap for an inconsistent factory effort? Has Jack Miller become cooked? And was the right man flipped for Pedro Acosta?

And finally, Ducati. From the brilliance of Bez and Diggia’s late surge, to Marini’s shock departure. And don’t forget the frustrating brilliance of Jorge Martin’s title campaign and Bagnaia becoming the point stuffer he was always meant to be. And what do we make of the future as the sport heads into a rocky 2024?

All that and so much more in our MotoGP Season Review!

December 22, 2023 The FF1S Review Of The Season Of Driving 2023

The FF1S Review Of The Season Of Driving 2023

Never mind the final race of the season, never mind the annual FIA prize-giving – this is what it all comes down to. The FF1S gang gather IN PERSON, at an ACTUAL PUB to debate the 2023 Formula 1 season and all who sailed in her. We’ll reflect on the good, the bad, the hilariously inept and the grudgingly rather impressive, before pronouncing an actual winner that isn’t Max Verstappen. It’s the only record he doesn’t have. Listen, be merry, buy us a drink (pintpintpint) and we’ll see you in 2024.

Episode #489: Wolffghazi And The 2023 F1 Season Review

If you’re the sort of person who likes an old school Motorsport101, this is the episode for you, a 2 hour-long deep dive into the 2023 Formula 1 Season, and a bonus segment into what happened the previous week in what we called Wolffghazi – As the FIA opened and very quickly closed a conflict of interest investigation against Susie and Toto Wolff as all 10 F1 teams distanced themselves from a governing body who took a story from a baseless sourced. Ugly.

Then we get into the season review itself, as we go in reverse and break down team by team. The battle for seventh comes first between a struggling Haas team, Alfa Romeo and the participation trophy role they became infamous for, Williams massive improvement and their fight with the mess that was AlphaTauri.

Then the midfield as Alpine was in no mans land and a mess of a management structure fell on its head again, then the heated battle for second between Ferrari and their poor start, McLaren with one of the greatest comebacks of all-time, Aston Martin’s shockingly great start but mid-season collapse and Mercedes, who were “Luigi wins by doing nothing” team.

And of course, one more look at Red Bull and the greatest F1 season of all-time. All that in a massive bumper edition of Motorsport101!

Ep.248 – Adrián Fernández, Pt.2

Adrián Fernández is a one-of-a-kind story with deep roots in IndyCar and sportscar racing. Raised with modest means in Mexico City, the idea of tenacity is redefined with his story, literally having himself smuggled to the Netherlands with no money to further his career, and eventually becoming a multi-time winner in IndyCar and IMSA, many of which were achieved with his own team. Beyond that, his legacy is probably best seen with re-invigorating the next wave of Mexican racing heroes, paving the way for many of today’s names. Dinner was served courtesy of Bulla in Coral Gables, Florida, with “Miami Beach” by Cosmonkey taking us out. Thanks again to Continental Tire for making it all happen.

Ep.246 – Alex Job

Alex Job is one of the most accomplished and respected team owners in the history of sportscar competition. Starting as an amateur racer balancing motorsport ambitions with a career in auto sales, the Florida native would use a rarely seen level of caution and calculation to slowly build his own racing team, Alex Job Racing, into a powerhouse that would not become one of the most heralded Porsche teams in history taking wins at Daytona, Petit Le Mans, and an unprecedented 10 victories at Sebring. Dinner was served courtesy of Rodello’s in Leesburg, Florida, with “Somewhere New” by Louis Island taking us out. Thanks again to Continental Tire for making it all happen.

Ep.245 – Pipo Derani

Pipo Derani is one of the most talked about characters in IMSA racing today. One of the most aggressive and unapologetic drivers in the GTP and prototype ranks, the Brazilian’s tenacity has to led to victories at Daytona, Sebring, and with a reputation of being as fast as they get. What makes Pipo interesting, however, is his completely opposite off-track character, being nothing but a polite and likable family man and a remarkably pleasant guest. Dinner was served courtesy of THE NOW DEFUNCT Maloko Miami in Miami, Florida, with “Don’t Look Anywhere” by Sara Flint taking us out. Thanks again to Continental Tire for making it all happen.

Ep.244 – Sebastien Bourdais, Pt.2

Sebastien Bourdais is probably best known as the king of IndyCar (formerly ChampCar) racing throughout the mid-2000’s. Winning four-consecutive titles, the Frenchman was as dominant as you could get in that era, before heading off to careers in Formula One, returning to IndyCar, and now in the GTP ranks of IMSA. Fiercely analytical and incredibly honest about himself,Sebastien’s candor makes for a truly one-of-a-kind look at one of the sport’s quiet greats. Dinner was served courtesy of Il Ritorno in St. Petersburg, Florida, with “On Fait la Fete” by Bamton taking us out. Thanks again to Continental Tire for making it all happen.
