Match Fixing and Formula One

After Novak Djokovic revealed that he was offered money to lose a tennis match, we speak about match fixing in Formula One. The sport has remained largely clean over the years – thanks to the FIA!
We hope you see our sarcasm as we welcome you to tune in to this week’s episode of The Inside Line where Mithila and Kunal talk about the sport’s love-hate relationship with team orders. We also salute Max Verstappen – the man (or boy!) who showed the world how to deal with team orders.
And our final piece of unsolicited advice to F1 team – fix engines, not races!
(Season 2016, Video 4)

If you missed our ever-popular episode last week, here’s a chance to tune in – ‘What If Hamilton Had Raced For Red Bull Racing?‘ where we try and calculate the number of Drivers’ Championship titles that Hamilton, Vettel and even Rosberg would’ve won. And then we also bring to you some funny stories in the sport in our ‘Hopeless Happenings’ section.
