Featuring Ben Edwards, lead commentator for C4 in the UK. We reflect on the 2017 season, on whether Ferrari can survive without creating a crisis and, briefly, on the new logo and why we shouldn’t talk about the new logo.

Rob’s graphic design degree gets a workout as we decide whether F1’s logo reveal was exciting enough to reverse the effects of the least exciting season climax in recent years (it isn’t) and we ask what Santa McGinley might be gifting this Christmas.

As the most visual show on radio we use audio to analyse F1’s newly trademarked logos, but to balance it out Peter sings a Christmas carol to close this week’s podcast.

Featuring Lawrence Barretto from Autosport. Peter questions the validity of Rob’s rostered show off, Pirelli creates a new Softy McSoftyface tyre compound, and we consider the future of the Brazilian Grand Prix.

Ferrari threatens to quit F1 (again), Felipe Massa retires from F1 (again) and Peter McGinley is absent from the show (again). Plus Dieter Rencken reveals that he’s actually South African, disqualifying him from ever sitting in the Australian Parliament.

We revive the mythical Bathurst Man after Formula One’s dalliance with pre-race driver introductions, and Peter’s McGinley’s union steps in to curtail this week’s recording after a number of Ferrari-esque technical failures.

Michael and Rob are mysteriously absent from the potentially title-deciding USGP preview, so Peter and special guest host Trent Price reminisce about their plunger-related pastimes (not a euphemism).

McGinley talks about his theoretical calendar exploits, Rob pays tribute to his F1 2016 teammate Jolyon Palmer and Michael asks Dieter what he Renckens about dyed blonde hair.

Peter espouses his wisdom regarding power sockets and instant coffee, Rob peaks behind the curtain of last week’s show and Michael invokes the memory of the Maldonado era.
