12: Lando Norris & Twitch – F1's Latest Obsessions

12: Lando Norris & Twitch - F1's Latest Obsessions


At the moment, Lando Norris is the only ‘thing’ about Formula 1 that’s operating. The Mclaren racer has become a Twitch sensation – entertaining the much-deprived fans with lots of virtual racing action. If we were MotoGP, Formula E and the Indy Car series, we’d invite Norris to race virtually in our series, too. We like how Norris is building his positioning in Formula 1 – fast, friendly, social and funny; a positioning that actually clashes with the other jokester of Formula 1, Daniel Ricciardo.
In this episode of the Inside Line F1 Podcast (https://bit.ly/insidelinef1pod) , we discuss if Bernie Ecclestone’s comments are worthy of the ‘Chairman Emeritus’ of Formula 1. He’s advised Mercedes to leave Formula 1. Are Flavio Briatore’s views generally disagreeable? We tell you why a possible delay of the new rules to 2023 is actually good a decision for the business of Formula 1. Lastly, let’s applaud all of Formula 1’s engineering and financial might coming together to fight the virus. Tune in!
(Season 2020, Episode 12)
Here’s what’s in store for you in this episode:
0:00-3:00 – Lando Norris and Daniel Ricciardo – the fight to be Formula 1’s best jokester?
3:00-6:00 – How soon before Norris live-streams his entire life on Twitch?
6:00-9:00 – Just how many of Flavio Briatore’s statements are agreeable? Michael Schumacher had it tougher than Lewis Hamilton? Hamilton not being put under pressure by a rival?
9:00-12:00 – Bernie Ecclestone’s comments not worthy of a person who’s the ‘Chairman Emeritus’ of Formula 1
12:00-15:00 – A new candidate makes himself eligible for Sebastian Vettel’s seat at Ferrari – it’s none other than Daniil Kvyat
15:00-18:00 – Is Formula 1 right in delaying the new rule changes to 2023 (possibly!)? Let’s applaud Formula 1’s foresight in dealing with the economic impact of the corona-virus.
18:00-21:00 – Formula 1 needs all existing teams to stay in the sport, at least in the near future. Will FOM release advances or a stimulus package to help teams stay afloat? 
21:00-end: Let’s applaud all of Formula 1’s efforts to help fight the virus. We’re putting all our engineering might together for a good worldly cause.
