Lastly, will F1 lose Fernando Alonso to another series? Tune in! (Season 2015; Episode 27)
Topics to look forward to:

  • Why is the Strategy Group meeting on a Tuesday? Ever wondered? We tell you why!
  • Will F1 lose Alonso to another racing series?

  • Red Bull Racing – Mercedes seems like a possibility sooner or later. Will they get equal engines though?
  • If not, why would Mercedes not treat them equally?
  • Pirelli’s F1 budget is close to that of a mid-field team. Why do they not run a team then?
  • FIA finally does some policing – thank you for saving two teams from the ruins!
