Mclaren’s Five Wheel Pitstop In India

I have been vocal about the 2012 Indian Grand Prix being a bore and RJ Rishi Kapoor and I try not to discuss that too much in this Formula1 podcast. I am still surprised that we went through an entire Formula1 race with only one pitstop for most drivers!

Anyway, here’s what the latest podcast has to offer:

  • Why was the 2012 Indian Grand Prix a bore? Who is to blame! We s-p-e-l-l it out!
  • Red Bull Racing is the stronger, no doubt, but what is Vettel doing that Webber can’t? (Read: Vettel Inches Closer To Third World Title)
  • Webber let Alonso through on purpose? Conspiracy theories! And hats off to Alonso!
  • I told Narain to ‘take care’ post-race, want to know why? (Read: Has TATA Made The Wrong Decision With HRT?)

  • Fastest ever ‘five wheel’ pit-stop by Mclaren? We watched in awe, did you too?
  • Rishi has an insight on Mercedes after their announcement of signing Hamilton. Hear it! (Read: Hamilton To Replace Schumacher In Mercedes In 2013)
  • And movements in the driver market, also in the Constructors’ Championship!
  • Hulkenberg moves, Vergne and Ricciardo stay – few cockpits, many names being discussed

The 2012 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix kicks off tomorrow. Rishi wants Vettel to clinch the crown and I want Alonso. While we are on opposite sides, do let us know who you are rooting for!

Over to Yas Marina!
