42: Verstappen's Comments Are Fun, Just Like His Racing


Max Verstappen’s been having fun – more so in his media briefings than his Red Bull Racing car; especially in the races after the summer break. But could his latest ‘Ferrari are cheating’ comment cost him a potential drive with the Scuderia in the future? Let’s hope the young Dutch prodigy doesn’t lock himself out from global car manufacturers who spend millions on their Motorsport programs world over. It’s too early to forget Fernando Alonso and the learnings from his mistakes.
The second story we talk about is the possibility of Lewis Hamilton joining Ferrari in the future. After all, could he target what the great Michael Schumacher attempted to do and failed? The dream of winning a Formula 1 World Championship title with the two giants of the sport – Ferrari and Mercedes. 
Also in this week’s episode of the Inside Line F1 Podcast, we wonder if Sebastian Vettel will trigger the next big changes in the driver silly season. Why is Jacques Villeneuve always so anti-Williams? We discuss Formula 1’s socialist approach – the financial regulations and why they could be good for the entire ecosystem. Chase Carey’s target of having at least 7 teams challenge for race wins under the new regulations and all the noise around Renault’s possible exit from Formula 1. How many times have they quit Formula 1 only to re-join after a few seasons? Tune in!
