Ecclestone Steps Down

Ecclestone Steps Down


So it seems that the Ecclestone surname isn’t necessarily a ticket to outstanding business acumen say Mithila and Kunal in the last episode of the Inside Line F1 Podcast. And by last, we mean the last of 2015. Happy New Year!

They wonder if the Lauda-Hamilton bromance was timed with Lewis-Nicole’s split and if Toto is Formula 1’s ‘crying wolf’! Is Raikkonen capable of aiding Vettel’s title challenge? Could Kevin Magnussen have helped save Jenson Button-Jessica Michibata’s marriage?

They talk about Renault’s smart $1.50 purchase of Lotus but believe the French manufacturer is displaying lack of smartness when it comes to their driver line-up. And lastly, on the second anniversary of his life-threatening accident, they pray for Michael Schumacher’s speedy recovery. Tune in!
