33: In F1, Ferrari = Google, Mercedes = Apple – Kunal's F1 Blog

33: In F1, Ferrari = Google, Mercedes = Apple

33: In F1, Ferrari = Google, Mercedes = Apple


The Ferrari vs. Mercedes battle in the current Formula 1 season is like the Google vs. Apple battle in the world of smartphones. There’s little doubt why Mercedes have managed to come out on top for two consecutive seasons. Tune in to hear more on this analogy. 

Also in this week’s episode, we have Lucien’s ‘Moments in Time’ section where we remind our viewers that there is more to our Russian Grand Prix memories than Daniil Kvyat’s torpedo moment. Will Daniel Ricciardio’s haste with Renault turn into waste? Is it cheaper to pay for a young driver’s seat elsewhere than run a third car altogether? And have we seen the first signs of a crack in the otherwise strong relationship between Sebastian Vettel and Ferrari? Tune in! 

A summary of this episode and what is discussed when: 

00:00-3:00 – Hello & Welcome! 😀 

03:00-05:00 – Why Ferrari is like Google and why Mercedes is like Apple…

05:00-09:00 – Will we have a USA vs. Russia in Formula 1 too? Or will it be a USA vs. China? And how is it that Mr. Putin isn’t doing a demo run in a Formula 1 car to promote the upcoming Russian Grand Prix?

09:00-11:00 – RIC-Renault, let’s hope haste doesn’t make waste

11:00-13:00 – VET, VER, LEC and GRO on sports psychologists. 

13:00-16:00 – BOT’s ambitions & aspirations, can he win a race before the end of this season? OCO-KUB pairing at Williams? VAN to Formula E? 

16:00-18:00 – ‘What Wolff Said This Week’ section! 

18:00-21:00 – Moments in Time with Lucien 

21:00-23:00 – A first visible crack in the VET-Ferrari relationship?

23:00-25:00 – VER-RBR talking like Mclaren-ALO did in 2017? Did RBR talk to ALO behind VER’s back for RIC’s seat in 2019?
