Glimpse of F1 without Red Bull domination - 2023 Singapore GP Review - Inside Line F1 Podcast


OMG! It actually happened, Red Bull Racing and Max Verstappen’s record-breaking race-winning streak ended in Singapore. Singapore remains Verstappen and Red Bull Racing’s unconquered frontier for yet another year.

Remember 1988 and McLaren’s race-winning streak then? Ferrari broke the streak back then. In 2023, it’s Ferrari that broke Red Bull-Verstappen’s race winning streak. Above all else, the 2023 Singapore Grand Prix was an absolute thriller.

Four cars were battling for the race win in the last 4 laps of the race. When last did we see that in recent times? 

In this week’s episode of the Inside Line F1 Podcast, Soumil Arora and Kunal Shah dissect the 2023 Singapore Grand Prix. How did Carlos Sainz win this race for Ferrari? We explain his ‘smooth operation’. Just why was Carlos Sainz driving so slow in the first half of the race? 

Why did Red Bull Racing have a sub-standard car in Singapore. How did McLaren score yet another podium with Lando Norris? Why did Mercedes pit George Russell and Lewis Hamilton under the VSC (courtesy: Esteban Ocon)?

Helmets off to Liam Lawson and Oscar Piastri for scoring points on their Singapore debut. And of course, an ode to the fantastic qualifying session from Saturday, we discuss that, too. We love Singapore, don’t you, too?

Tune in!
