In this Pits to Podium segment of the Inside Line F1 Podcast, Soumil and Kunal re-live Esteban Ocon’s win – something that we didn’t see much of apart from a few onboard shots and the final celebrations. They also discuss – why did Hamilton not pit during the restart? Were teams-drivers permitted to discuss tyre changes during the restart? What if Carlos Sainz Jr. had pitted when Ferrari actually wanted him to pit? And of course, why could Sainz Jr. not pit despite knowing that Hamilton would pit?
News of Sebastian Vettel’s disqualification & Aston Martin Racing’s appeal came through while recording this episode – so why exactly was Vettel disqualified? Why does the FIA require a fuel sample from all the competitors? There are several questions answered in this episode. And of course, Sundaram delivers his classic stats review. Tune in!
