Sebastian Vettel – from spinning on track, he’s now spinning in the simulator.
Is this Vettel’s way of trolling his trolls? Let’s remember, the German has an impeccable sense of humour too. Instead of wins, pole positions and fastest laps, his spin count (4 in the last 10 races) leads the chatter among Formula 1 fans. One thing is for sure, Vettel will bounce back. But which race will it be?
In this week’s episode of the Inside Line F1 Podcast, we discuss the celebrations around Formula 1’s 1000th Grand Prix (and the unneccessary fuss around the number 1000), a possible Verstappen-Ocon pairing at Mercedes, which driver prodigies will place his hands on the title trophy first – Leclerc or Verstappen, Formula E’s new ambassadors – Bernie Ecclestone and Lewis Hamilton and of course, the possible addition of a Q4 to our ever-so-fun qualifying session. By the way, there’s a ‘What Villeneuve Said This Week’ section. But worry not, it isn’t replacing our ever-famous ‘What Wolff Said This Week’ section. Okay, now tune in!
