Episode #294: Overdrive (2021 Bahrain Grand Prix Review)

Well… That wasn’t what we expected, eh?

2021’s F1 season opener at Bahrain ended up being a surprise classic of the era, with Lewis Hamilton genuinely on the back foot for most of the weekend. But he still took advantage of a damaged Red Bull, and some superior strategy from his Mercedes team to take win Number 96 of his legendary career.

We also talk about the track limits mismanagement heard around the world as Turn 4 became a figure of ridicule for the viewers and teams, as a change from Race Direction… Didn’t look great. We also review F2’s season opener, as it was a big weekend for the rookies, with Liam Lawson and Oscar Piastri impressing with wins, while Guanyu Zhou took the feature race!

Episode #293: The 2021 MotoGP Season Preview

It’s a bit close to the mark, but right before the season starts in Qatar, here’s the gangs full Preview of MotoGP’s 2021 Season in Qatar. It includes talk on Joan Mir, the sport’s almost forgotten reigning World Champion and Suzuki’s quiet test. We have Yamaha with an incredibly fast, but volatile package and Fabio Quartararo making the jump over. Ducati’s ultimate high speed package with a big reshuffle in the rider department. And the big question… Is Aprillia real? Oh, sorry, is Marc Marquez coming back?

All that, and a review of IMSA’s 12 Hours of Sebring included!

Episode #291: Failure To Launch (Formula E 2021 Diriyah Review)

It was a chaotic opening weekend for Formula E in Diriyah, that included, but wasn’t limited to, the most dominant first race in the series history from Nyck de Vries, two pretty scary major incidents in FP3 and Race 2 from Edo Mortara and Alex Lynn, EIGHT post-race penalties, and Sam Bird running down a pitlane with high fives. It’s a trip.

Oh and there was a bomb threat. As you do. Formula E’s Season Opener here on Motorsport101!

Episode 289: Free Rolex (2021 24 Hours of Daytona Review)

It’s truly the presence of a miracle! The boys finally convinced Dre to watch a Sports Car race! And it was a damn fun Rolex 24 Hours of Daytona as Wayne Taylor Racing took a hat-trick and fourth win in the last five years! We talk about them, the Cadillac and Kevin Magnussen’s debut, and heartbreaking finish, and we laugh at LMP3’s Meme Class!

We also catch up on all of January’s news, and Dre wears a weird shirt.

February 19, 2021 Episode #288: If You Ain’t First (Talladega Nights Watch Party)

Episode #288: If You Ain’t First (Talladega Nights Watch Party)

A much, MUCH requested Watch Party from years ago, as the boys sit down and watch along to Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby, a film that probably did more to capture the spirit of NASCAR than Days of Thunder did!

WARNING: We watched the unrated, Director’s Cut version of the movie, it’s about 15 minutes longer than the cinema version. Now, note, the unrated version contains multiple ableist slurs and a couple of jokes that imply non-consent. It’s a product of its time and while we don’t endorse it, this is what the movie is, and some discretion may be advised!

Episode #287: Roar Before (2021 24 Hours of Daytona Preview)

Now, I know what you’re thinking – You’re quite right, Episodes 285 and 286 are missing! That’s intentional, they’re both still in the works, but we wanted to get this episode out first, we recorded this on Wednesday and it involves a full preview of IMSA’s Rolex 24 Hours of Daytona, featuring a full run down of the field and state of play!

We also catch up with January’s news, including a surprise MotoGP to F1 switch for Suzuki’s Davide Brivio, calendar changes due to COVID-19 in all the major series we cover, and asking why (Sir) Lewis Hamilton is still a free agent.

Episode #284: Flat Finale

Finally, we got the F1 season over and done with! In this episode, we review an absolute snoozer of an Abu Dhabi GP, as Max Verstappen dominated from start to finish over a surprisingly subdued Mercs, and a less than 100% Lewis Hamilton returning from his COVID-19 case.

We also discuss McLaren selling off 33% of their team to a sports group and discuss the changes in the WEC as the Hypercar category comes closer to fruition. Oh, and Cam goes OFF on an awful ending to the Kyalami 9 Hours. Next up, the Motorsport101 Awards!

Episode #283: Bahrhombus

Behold, the Bahrhombus! This was our Motorsport101 Race of the Year and for good reason. We covered all of the George Russell substitution and how he was robbed of the win. Twice. How Sergio Perez went from 18th on the opening lap to win, as well as midfielders taking up the entire Top 5. And the long-term ramifications of Lewis Hamilton missing the race, Russell’s future, and a moment for Sergio Perez finally winning at the 190th attempt. Enjoy!
