Box of Neutrals is joined by Superlicense Podcast’s Rodney Gordon and Zach Priest to celebrate Peter McGinley’s ability to make his own sound effects and other developments from the 2016 Formula One season.
With Olav Mol. Ziggo Sport’s Olav Mol talks about Max Verstappen fans, *that* Brazilian Grand Prix commentary, and his enthusiasm (ahem) for the French Grand Prix.
With Ben Edwards. Peter McGinley begrudgingly continues to fulfil his contractual obligations. Some world champion retires. Channel 4 F1 commentator Ben Edwards reflects on the 2016 season, though doesn’t mention Placido Domingo.
With Dieter Rencken. We eulogise Lewis Hamilton’s excruciatingly slow loss of his world championship, Peter McGinley attempts to make his own sound effects, and Dieter Renckens he has the flu.
We preview the last race of the season to honour the drivers who are retiring and/or being forced out of Formula One against their will, McLaren is disappointed with Fernando Alonso’s progress as an actor since 2014, and some championship is up for grabs.
Max Verstappen’s racing was inspired, but the Olav Mol’s ‘Dutch’ commentary was better. Peter McGinley refuses to apologise for not satisfying his fans. We shortlist our impromptu should-have-been champions awards.
With Dieter Rencken. All the teams make their 2017 driver line-up announcements after we record, which makes our references to Home Improvement sound embarrassingly out of date. Plus Dieter renckens Ross Brawn might be the man to make F1 great again.
We reference Burgo’s Catch Phrase and Gardening Australia to balance Sebastian Vettel’s Peter McGinley-eque language and keep the show family friendly on average. Also, a race happens in Mexico.
McLaren prepares to thaw Martin Whitmarsh from his cryogenically suspended state, and Rob didn’t manage to see the United States Grand Prix, so we talk about his sewerage problem instead.
With Murray Walker. This episode requires no further description.
