50: Nurburgring: Cold Tyres & Turns 8-9 To Watch For


The 2020 Eifel Grand Prix couldn’t have chosen a better venue than the infamous Nurburgring. In our Pits To Podium (https://bit.ly/pitstopodium) segment, Soumil and Kunal talk about the circuit, its history, how the cold and wind will make for interesting racing and how starting from P2 will be a statistical advantage. And of course, ‘cold tyres’ will be a unique challenge that teams and Pirelli will look to overcome this weekend. Who will come out on top? Send in your predications for our Grand Prix Predictions League (https://www.instagram.com/pitstopodium/) .

And of course, we discuss the uber-competitive mid-field battle, Kimi Raikkonen’s record, Mick Schumacher & Callum Illot’s Formula 1 debut and Sergio Perez finally getting the upgraded RP20 for himself! Btw, look out for the drivers absolutely raving about Turns 8-9. Will they go flat out? Tune in.
