The Case Of The Pirelli Right Rear Tyre

Pirelli’s ‘right rear’ tyre shared the limelight with Lewis Hamilton at the 2015 Belgian Grand Prix say Mithila and Kunal in the latest episode of the Inside Line F1 Podcast. As they pray for Justin Wilson’s recovery, they talk about Grosjean’s Belgian homecoming, Raikkonen’s new lease of life, Williams’ desire to not win and the yet to conclude Ferrari-Pirelli saga. Tune in and laugh along! (Season 2015, Episode 28)
Topics we discussed:

  • The eerie coincidence of the Pirelli right rear tyre
  • How Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg robbed us of an episode title
  • Honda finally matched Ferrari as Renault matched Mercedes – we had parity for the first time!

  • Congratulations to Romain Grosjean and Lotus; we hope their cars reach Monza
  • ‘Driver of the Day’ in Spa (Pastor Maldonado it to the list too!)
