Red Bull Racing are missing! They’ve lost their challenger tags to Ferrari, who in turn have snatched the leaders tag from Mercedes. In this episode, we discuss the Schumacher cousins, the 2nd seat at Red Bull & feel pity for Bottas’ accountant.
Red Bull Racing Missing! In the races after the summer break, Red Bull Racing-Honda has struggled to mount a challenge. They’ve had on-track incidents and penalties marring their progress, but this is the second half of the season – the time when Red Bull Racing are supposed to be at their strongest best. Will the Max Verstappen camp be worried? And after all these years of drama, does one really care who occupies the second seat at Red Bull Racing?
In this week’s episode of the Inside Line F1 Podcast, we talk about the Schumacher cousins and if both would make it to Formula 1. We discuss reverse grids and how soon before Kevin Magnussen joins Lewis Hamilton’s crusade against use of plastic. Given the lack of clarity around the black-white flag, should the FIA rename it as the grey flag? Finally, it would be a pain to be Valtteri Bottas’ accountant – living in the hope that Mercedes would pay back for playing wingman to Lewis Hamilton. Tune in!
