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 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.
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2017 driver line-up announcements after we record, which makes our references to Home Improvement sound embarrassingly out of date.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.
With Murray Walker. This episode requires no further description.

With Dieter Rencken. Mercedes wins the world championship, Lewis Hamilton escalates his Snapchat addiction, and staff members at Dieter Rencken's hotel are forced to listen to a conversation about Formula One in the lobby.
Peter McGinley delivers Lewis Hamilton a championship pep talk, Michael consider the advertising value of tattoos on Formula One drivers, and Rob makes branding changes to the programme without ABC consultation.
Peter McGinley goes on his midseason break, bankrupting Felipe Massa of confidence and sending him into retirement. Michael and Rob discuss the effect of football hooliganism on motor racing, but the Herald Sun doesn't buy it.
