34: Will Leclerc Be Rosberg's Next Target?

34: Will Leclerc Be Rosberg's Next Target?


Lewis Hamilton wasn’t the only Mercedes driver who felt the heat in Monza. Nico Rosberg, Formula 1’s famous YouTube influencer and former World Champion Mercedes driver, was under fire too – from Max Verstappen and Lewis Hamilton himself. Rosberg has already toned down his comments, but after attacking three out of the top-4 drivers, we wonder if Charles Leclerc would be Rosberg’s next target. After all, Leclerc is Formula 1’s new race winner, the darling of the fans and maybe the FIA too?
Also in this episode, we talk Sebastian Vettel, because he needs to be spoken about and will Giancarlo Fisichella get a call up if VET does indeed get a race ban? Leclerc learned from Verstappen, Hamilton’s learning from Lerclec – is Max Verstappen singlehandedly changing Formula 1 by bringing back ‘hard racing’? Hear Kevin Magnussen talk about luck and being in the right place-right time, while we pull out a Charles Leclerc interview from our archives. It was about a year ago when Lerclerc told us on our show that he didn’t think he was a superstar. Oh, just how times have changed, for the better. Tune in!
