Bottas’ World Porridge Day Tribute – 2021 Turkish GP Review – Inside Line F1 Podcast


Whoever founded the ‘World Porridge Day’ couldn’t have asked for a better tribute than Valtteri Bottas scoring his first win of the season at the 2021 Turkish Grand Prix. The Finn inherited pole position on Saturday & then drove a controlled race to finish ahead of the Red Bulls of Max Verstappen & Sergio Perez. 

In this Pits to Podium segment of the Inside Line F1 Podcast, Soumil and Kunal discuss the damp-but-boring race at the Istanbul Park Circuit.

In this episode – why was the circuit not drying up despite no rainfall for most of the race? Is the Pirelli intermediate a racing tyre? Should Mercedes have taken Lewis Hamilton’s power unit-induced grid penalty at another race? And of course, should Mercedes have opted for the ‘0-stopper’ strategy for their reigning World Champion?

Should Red Bull Racing be pleased with a double podium finish? Mclaren lost a bit of ground to Ferrari – Leclerc’s missed podium and Sainz’s brilliant recovery drive. The surprising part was that the race saw now SC / VSC despite being held in damp conditions and despite an on-track battle between the two Haas drivers. Tune in!
