Márquez Does A Vettel


Yes, we are the Inside Line F1 Podcast, but Marc Marquez’s performance in 2014 has been such that it merits a mention and more in the latest episode of our Formula1 podcast. I get so consumed by Formula1 as a sport that I am unable to follow MotoGP as much as I’d like to, especially in a season when there’s one rider dominating the proceedings.

And that’s the point. I wonder how many Formula1 fans (the tertiary ones and otherwise) felt that way when Vettel dominated the second half of the 2013 Formula1 season. On the contrary, TV figures dropped! I wonder why this trend.

The other surprising trend is how teams have agreed and complied with each other to observe the ‘August shutdown’ period. If only they did the same for their commercials, rules and other key aspects, Formula1 could’ve possibly been a better sport over all. Yes, there’s much scope for improvement, especially on the marketing side!

A BIG thank you to everyone for the good feedback on the ‘Know Thy Racer‘ episode from last week in which we featured Sahara Force India’s Academy driver Jehan Daruvala – ‘Living The Dream‘.

But before we proceed with the latest episode of the Inside Line F1 Podcast, we pay our condolences to Kevin Ward Jr. and his family. It is never good to lose a life on the race track, I mean this isn’t why we go racing!


I return to work and the Inside Line F1 Podcast a week post-Spa, so miss me while I am away! And till then, Keep Racing!
