F1 racer Lando ‘Baldo’ Norris’ online racing obsession via Twitch – will he virtually race in other series, too? Bernie Ecclestone’s un-statesman-like comments + disagreeing with Flavio Briatore & more.
At the moment, Lando Norris is the only ‘thing’ about Formula 1 that’s operating. The Mclaren racer has become a Twitch sensation – entertaining the much-deprived fans with obsession for virtual racing. If we were MotoGP, Formula E and the Indy Car series, we’d invite Norris to race virtually in our series, too. We like how Norris is building his positioning in Formula 1 – fast, friendly, social and funny; a positioning that actually clashes with the other jokester of Formula 1, Daniel Ricciardo.
In this episode of the Inside Line F1 Podcast, we discuss if Bernie Ecclestone’s comments are worthy of the ‘Chairman Emeritus’ of Formula 1. He’s advised Mercedes to leave Formula 1. Are Flavio Briatore’s views generally disagreeable? We tell you why a possible delay of the new rules to 2023 is actually good a decision for the business of Formula 1. Lastly, let’s applaud all of Formula 1’s engineering and financial might coming together to fight the virus. Tune in!
