Red Bulls’ French Revolution – 2021 French GP – Inside Line F1 Podcast


OMG! Almost no one saw that coming. The French Grand Prix actually entertained Formula 1 fans! As Kunal said, “The 2021 French Grand Prix has raised bar and how for all the French Grands Prix to follow in the next century.” But WHAT IF Max Verstappen had not made the opening lap error at Turn 1 and kept the lead, would the 2021 French Grand Prix have been less entertaining? 

In this episode of the Inside Line F1 Podcast, Soumil joins Kunal to review the epic race at Circuit Paul Ricard. A race that saw all 20 drivers finish AND not a single yellow flag!

Could Mercedes have done different strategy-wise? Could they have switched to the two-stopper mid-race? Why did Red Bull Racing-Verstappen stop twice despite having the lead & track position? Also, how did VER undercut HAM in the race? Oh, just how powerful was the undercut AND of course, Mercedes desperately need to sharpen their race strategy skills. For the third race in a row, HAM’s lost track position in the pit-stops. 

Also in this episode – the racy Mclarens, Lando Norris’ race to fifth, the RIC-NOR swap that we missed on the world feed, Sergio Perez’s play as VER’s wingman & taking points off Mercedes in the Constructors’ Championship, Valtteri Bottas’ expletive-laden radio, Aston Martin Racing’s alternate strategy & Ferrari’s tyre degradation. Tune in!
