Jacques Villeneuve unironically tells F1 drivers to shut up, Peter McGinley is warned about tattoo parlours, and because Box of Neutrals is 100 per cent live (ahem), our preview of the Chinese Grand Prix is very, very complete.
Time zones strike again and we fail to mention that qualifying has changed (again), Peter McGinley drops a three-week old joke, and we make good on a promise for the first time in years, and it happens to be hamburger-related.
Featuring Dieter Rencken. Peter McGinley says ‘punce’, we read your fax facts, Michael and Rob dissect Bernie Ecclestone’s open telegram to the Grand Prix Drivers Association, and Dieter tells us what he Renckens about F1’s qualifying shambles.
Read Dieter’s columns in Autosport and F1 Racing magazine.
Feat. Trent Price. Peter McGinley takes the day off (even though we didn’t record on Good Friday) , so eRacing Magazine editor Trent Price joins us in a lengthy discussion about how the Big Bash League isn’t very similar to Formula One.
F1 is finally starting, so Craig Scarborough joins us to preview 2016 and Michael catches up with AGPC CEO Andrew Westacott to ask him about the cost of a plate of hamburgers and Renault principal Frederic Vasseur to talk to him about the colour yellow.
Qualifying has changed again, and to help fans deal with the change Formula One has hired the advertising prowess of Peter McGinley to sell its message. Nothing much else happens, so we talk about regional Australian geography to fill time.
Featuring Dieter Rencken. Peter tries to disqualify himself from the show to avoid working. Romain Grosjean has his Facebook videos taken down by Bernie Ecclestone. We ask Dieter what he Renckens for the first time in 2016.
Michael, Rob, and Peter McGinley are back with news from the new-year break for the 2016 season, which Bernie Ecclestone has already described as the worst Formula One has ever been. Get appropriately excited
