Max Attack, Max Points, Max Impact – 2022 Emilia Romagna Grand Prix Review – Inside Line F1 Podcast


The 2022 Emilia Romagna Grand Prix showed just how lethal Max Verstappen is when his Red Bull is a pace setting car and of course, reliable as well.

Red Bull Racing was practically unchallenged at Imola and Verstappen made the most of it to take a sizeable chunk out of Charles Leclerc’s early season lead in the Drivers’ Championship.

34 points – the maximum a driver could score on a ‘Sprint + Grand Prix’ weekend format; and that’s exactly what Verstappen did in Imola. In fact, it’s the first time in the history of this format that a driver has scored the maximum available points through the weekend.

On the Inside Line F1 Podcast, Soumil and Kunal review the 2022 Emilia Romagna Grand Prix – did we all jinx Ferrari’s homecoming at Imola? Should Charles Leclerc have patiently settled for P3?

Could Daniel Ricciardo have done any different at the start?

Is George Russell’s experience from Williams helping him cope better with a struggling Mercedes?

Is there more to Toto Wolff’s post-race apology to Lewis Hamilton? 

The colder temperatures – were they a performance differentiating factor this weekend? 

Finally, are Alfa Romeo & Haas the underperformers of the season yet?

Tune in!
