45: Mugello Mayhem: Did You Miss The Procession?

45: Mugello Mayhem: Did You Miss The Procession?


They said, the 2020 Tuscan Grand Prix at Mugello would be a boring and processional race. They said, the race would be all about tyre management. They also said, there would be no overtaking! They were wrong. We were a part of the ‘they’, weren’t you, too? There was mayhem at Mugello – undoubtedly the best race of the season yet! In this Pits To Podium (https://bit.ly/pitstopodium) segment, Soumil and Kunal present our race debrief.

In this episode – a chaotic race gave us a Mercedes 1-2 + Red Bull driver on the podium; but it was ‘how’ we got there that made for a fun race. Daniel Ricciardo’s almost-podium with Renault, Alexander Albon’s first career podium, Lance Stroll’s almost scoring a career-first back-to-back podium, George Russell’s almost-point score, a double points finish for Ferrari and Kimi Raikkonen finally opening his points tally for the season. And of course, we discuss and dissect the carnage at the Safety Car restart that saw 12 drivers let off with a warning. Tune in!
