29: Verstappen A Legit Hamilton Beater?


After years of waiting, does Formula 1 finally have a Lewis Hamilton beater in Max Verstappen? Frankly, we don’t care who beats who as long as we have a battle to witness for the seasons to come. Sorry, Seb, but the narrative does seem to now be all about Verstappen vs. Hamilton.
In this week’s episode of the Inside Line F1 Podcast, we discuss Verstappen’s talent, form and his psychological attacks on Hamilton. Is Nico Rosberg the new Jacques Villeneuve? Did Toto Wolff drop the biggest hint yet of his aspirations to becoming the next F1 CEO? Pierre Gasly deserves a hug and everyone needs to stop playing Helmut Marko. And finally, is Captain Planet Sebastian Vettel racing in the wrong Motorsport series? Tune in!
(Season 2019, Episode 29)
Here’s what’s in store for you in this episode:
0:00-3:00: Our love-hate for back-to-back Formula 1 races. Did Toto Wolff just drop the biggest hint of his future as F1 CEO?
3:00-6:00: It’s officially on, Max Verstappen vs. Lewis Hamilton, on track and in the media. Sorry, Seb!
6:00-9:00: Someone go give Pierre Gasly a hug because EVERYONE wants to play Helmut Marko with him. Can we also end the Fernando Alonso back to Formula 1 talk? Everyone wants Alonso back, but no one wants him in their team
9:00-12:00: Is Nico Rosberg the new Jacques Villeneuve of Formula 1? Both one-time World Champions…also both making outrageously strange statements
12:00-15:00: Captain Planet Sebastian Vettel is racing in the wrong Motorsport series. But, we love his old school ways, do you too? Also, Leclerc’s been spinning often, but we find out something really cool that the Ferrari driver does after he spins
15:00-18:00: What race would Ferrari choose to film their Netflix episode? Did Red Bull Racing miss a trick by letting go of Carlos Sainz Jr.?
18:00-end: Moments in Time with Lucien
