Inside Line F1 Podcast: Márquez Does A Vettel

Yes, we are the Inside Line F1 Podcast, but Marc Marquez’s performance in 2014 has been such that it merits a mention and more in the latest episode of our Formula1 podcast. I get so consumed by Formula1 as a sport that I am unable to follow MotoGP as much as I’d like to, especially [...]

Inside Line F1 Podcast: Mercedes Prefer A Blonde On Top

My views on the team orders saga involving Lewis Hamilton, Nico Rosberg and Mercedes in the 2014 Hungarian Grand Prix created much hullabaloo on social media! So much so that I almost ended up getting trolled, so in this week’s episode of the Inside Line F1 Podcast, I offered to clarify my views further. Funnily [...]

2014 Formula1 Season: Has The Dust Settled Yet?

Technically, we are nine races into the nineteen race calendar of the 2014 Formula1 Season and that means we are half way through, whichever way you prefer your math. Time flies, they say, and if you’re a Formula1 fan, it flies a tad bit faster from March till November! Much like every new season in [...]

Inside Line F1 Podcast: Michael’s 92nd Victory

The moment that almost every Formula1 fan (a Schumacher one or not) was waiting for finally arrived yesterday. Schumacher’s manager finally released news that the German legend was no longer in coma and was being moved to a rehabilitation centre for further recovery. As someone who understands media and PR, this piece of news was [...]

Inside Line F1 Podcast: The Mont-Real Deal

So I did an FIA, so to say, while uploading this week’s episode of the Inside Line F1 Podcast. I uploaded the unedited file (yeah, they passed the draft resolution that included the ‘double points’ in Abu Dhabi!) Just what a boo-boo! I am sure the surprised many who heard the unedited version (some 150 [...]

Inside Line F1 Podcast: Nico And Nicole

Red Bull Racing missed their best chance yet of the 2014 Formula1 Season to stop the Mercedes dominance. But Nico Rosberg didn’t! And strangely, I am yet to come to terms with a distraught Hamilton’s comments and reactions. I wonder how he deals with Nico and Nico-le in his life on and off track. (Read: [...]

Inside Line F1 Podcast: Someone Please Fight Back

It seems a little funny that I was absolutely enjoying the Vettel-Red Bull Racing dominance in 2013 and have a polar reaction when I now see Hamilton-Mercedes dominating the 2014 Formula1 Season. I guess this is what it feels like when a driver you don’t support much is dominating. And of course, I wasn’t one [...]

Inside Line F1 Podcast: Formula1 Puts Fans First

After years of being ignored, Formula1 fans are now being treated as the real ‘asset’ of the sport. And it is after years of campaigning, writing and talking about this issue on my Formula1 blog and on the Inside Line F1 Podcast that the sport and its various stakeholders have finally taken heed. One could [...]

Inside Line F1 Podcast: Know Thy Racer

The first Formula1 break of the 2014 Formula1 Season is upon us and while it gives fans time to ponder whether the new ‘formula’ has been a success or not, Rishi and I decided to take this time to launch a new feature segment on the Inside Line F1 Podcast called ‘Know Thy Racer’. Formula1 [...]

Inside Line F1 Podcast: Mercedes Is The New Red Bull

First, it was Ferrari, followed by Red Bull Racing and now it seems to be the era of domination for Mercedes. Whether the domination is boring or not, depends on where your loyalties lie. For me, they lie with the other Mercedes of Nico Rosberg. So like I said before, I now feel what it [...]
