F1, Back In Business?

After months of waiting, the 2016 Formula 1 Season is finally here. And while you wait for the five red lights to go out, tune in to the pre-Australian Grand Prix episode of the Inside Line F1 Podcast.
Mithila and Kunal talk about how Lewis Hamilton is the ONLY one who is seemingly having the best start to the new season already. They also reveal Williams’ strategy to beat Force India while Red Bull Racing prove that the best way to react to being beaten is to quit!
We tell you why a Hamilton-Vettel pairing MIGHT just be needed in 2017, or better, a Hamilton-Alonso pairing in 2018. ‘Can Nico Rosberg FINALLY beat Lewis Hamilton?’ – our prediction on THE story of 2016. Lastly, Jenson Button could be in his last Formula 1 season. Tune in to find out why.

IF the changes in qualifying do make the session more interesting, it will be a great advertisement for the sport to encourage fans to tune-in on Sunday. BUT when they do tune-in, we will showcase a product that relies on artificial measures such as DRS to spice up the action. Here’s your chance to tune-in to ‘DRS Has Ruined Formula One‘.

  • Sorry guys DRS was put there to stop dominance and make the field closer..F1 fans can remember the past and know that there has always been dominance of two or three teams with the most money.You talk about the past but really , tell me examples,..F1 is what it is today good or bad by the manipulation of rules year in and year out .. I suggest you are sensationalizing things a tad 🙂 Love your posts though keep it up 🙂

    • Thanks Troy for your comment and good words. We love to hear from our listeners / readers.
      To be honest, F1’s rules have led us to where we are. The cars are too good in aero and that’s working against the sport. DRS is a gimmick to entertain the fans, to be honest. As someone who has done a little bit of racing, I can tell you that the joy lies in the fight and not just in the overtake. I have written on the ‘Truth About Overtaking’ and you can read that here – http://bit.ly/1NRDkcS
      Having said that, I think we’re onto something interesting in 2016 with the three compound rule introduced. Let’s hope the excitement that started in Australia remains. Cheers!
