36: Celebrating The Legend Of Kimi Raikkonen


Yes, we are still celebrating Kimi Raikkonen’s victory from last Sunday. But that’s how it should be with Raikkonen’s wins – they don’t come as often, so when they do, one better celebrate it in true Raikkonen style 😉 

In this week’s episode of the Inside Line F1 Podcast, we reveal what Ferrari need to do to motivate Raikkonen to deliver as Raikkonen should. And no, this doesn’t include the ‘champagne on the podium’ mantra. Btw, after years of needing to replace Raikkonen, are Ferrari actually replacing him at the worst possible time? Daniel Ricciardo has set his sights on the World Championship for 2021\. But it might not be with Renault – his contract is till only 2020! Finally, someone go remind Chase Carey that Lewis Hamilton WILL win his 5th Formula 1 World Championship this Sunday. Tune in! 

Here’s what’s in store for you in this week’s episode:

0:00 – 03:00: We are still celebrating a RAI win! And cheering for a pole for him before the end of the season 

3:00 – 6:00: F1 Live Miami wasn’t an accurate representation of the sport of Formula 1! We tell you why. 

6:00 – 9:00: Renault will need a BIGGER budget for their car and for their social media efforts IF they want to want to make the most of RIC’s talent and personality 

9:00 – 12:00: How closed is the talent circle in Formula 1? If only the drivers could switch teams with as much ease

12:00 – 15:00: Robert Kubica, if Formula 1 is repeatedly ignoring him, maybe race elsewhere? Formula E would be more than pleased to have him. At Nissan, maybe? 

15:00 – 18:00: What Wolff Said This Week section! (Come, LOL along!); is VET missing a mentor in Ferrari? 

18:00 – 21:00: VET needs to CTRL+ALT+DEL; a 21-race calendar finally getting to one of the drivers? Also, VET and VER preparing well for reverse grids, if they ever happen! 

21:00 – 27:00: is VER the challenger that HAM needs? Let’s pray RBR-Honda deliver in 2019; also, Lucien’s ‘Moments in Time’ 

27:00 – 30:00: BRA spoke of a sport called Football, anyone know what it is?
