What Will Mercedes Do With Lewis Hamilton?
THEÂ INSIDE LINE F1 PODCASTÂ IS HOSTED BY MITHILA MEHTA AND KUNAL SHAH. THISÂ FORMULA ONE PODCASTÂ OFFERS A UNIQUE HUMOUROUS VIEW ON THE SPORT.Â
What willÂ Mercedes do with Lewis Hamilton after his public act of disobedience in the season-ending Abu Dhabi Grand Prix? To us, all of it seems to be extra PR that Mercedes, Hamilton and even Formula 1 are enjoying. But seriously, what should theyÂ Mercedes do? (Rosberg Wins, But Was Hamilton Fair?)
As for Nico Rosberg, he settled the ‘worthy World Champion’ debate by successfully overtaking Max Verstappen (yes, he overtook Verstappen)! In this episode, we also speak about Jenson Button’s farewell race and how a retirement before his sabbatical makes perfect sense. Irony of life, maybe. Although, we believe he’ll be perfect as a TV host, with or without his bubbly! (If Schumacher Had Turned TV Commentator)

We were the first ones to point out that Sebastian Vettel acted on purpose when he held station and not overtake Nico Rosberg in the race. Was this a calculated move by Vettel to ensure that Hamilton’s title tally remains at three and not add up to his tally of four? Cheeky! (Vettel Should Replace Ecclestone As Formula 1’s CEO)
And thank God that Max Verstappen ran into the other Nico, but given his pace, strategy and Hamilton’s disinterest in winning the race, could he have won in Abu Dhabi? Also, Rosberg’s title-winning party featured Ricciarodo, but did his shoey make an appearance too? Keke believes that Hamilton got lucky twice and we’re still scratching our heads about the second instance. Lastly, we welcome Zak Brown to Formula 1 in our own little ways.
