2012 Formula1 Podcast: Monaco, Pirelli And One-Stoppers

RJ Rishi Kapoor dons a bikini in this podcast, while I refuse to let go of my racing overalls and helmet. Here we go speaking about the 2012 Monaco Grand Prix.

  • Pirelli’s super-soft and soft tyres. Will we actually see any driver attempt a one-stopper?
  • If the race is down to conserving tyres, we go about picking our favourites!
  • We make a list of non-winners of 2012 and who are capable of winning, trust me, this is a long list and there are too many who can win in Monaco.
  • We also discuss a possible list of repeat winners for 2012 – see if your list of names matches ours
  • Schumacher, can he finally come to the core? Win his 6th Monaco GP race? And his replacements and Rishi has an insight on his contract (much like an exclusive)

  • And talking of replacements, we count the number of drivers in contention for Massa’s seat in 2013 or earlier. And I discuss one very interesting driver, one who doesn’t have a drive this season, but finished in the top 10 last year
  • Rishi tries to bring up something about Caterham and Kovalainen…
  • And we rally in support of Narain Karthikeyan, he needs to up his stakes and of course speed!
  • All teams are saying ‘we will perform better in Monaco’, we try and decipher what they mean
