Otmar Szafnauer Interview on Andretti, Pink Mercedes, Aston Martin-Alpine, Perez-Ocon (Part 2) – Inside Line F1 Podcast

Otmar Szafnauer Interview on Andretti, Pink Mercedes, Aston Martin-Alpine, Perez-Ocon (Part 2) - Inside Line F1 Podcast



How does one get hired as a Team Principal? Is Otmar Szafnauer in touch with Andretti to lead their Formula 1 team? What was the Pink Mercedes saga all about and how painful was it to lose 3rd place in the World Constructors’ Championship in 2020? 

In our part 2 of the Otmar Szafnauer interview episode, the former Alpine, Aston Martin and Force India / Racing Point chief talks to Soumil Arora and Kunal Shah about several interesting topics on the Inside Line F1 Podcast. 

How many teams are sufficient for Formula 1? Sergio Perez and Esteban Ocon – two solid midfield drivers that Otmar worked with, how was it with those two? Alpine’s lack of a customer team, is that a competitive limitation in Formula 1? And of course, the many heads to Alpine – did that complicate decision making?

After a blockbuster Part 1, we’re back with Part 2 of the Otmar Szafnauer interview. For those who missed Part 1, hear the episode “Otmar Szafnauer on Lawrence Stroll, Vijay Mallya, Force India, Alpine and more“.
