Verstappen's Typical Teenage Tantrums

Max Verstappen showed his trademark speed at the 2016 Australian Grand Prix, but did he also show some immaturity? Is he behaving like a typical teenager?

Verstappen’s request on the radio for ‘team orders’ shows that he’s learned well from our current and previous World Champions.

In this week’s episode of the Inside Line F1 Podcast, Mithila and Kunal talk about how the opening round in Australia showcased the best and worst of Formula 1. They wonder why Rosberg’s race winning drive wasn’t covered as well on TV just as Hamilton’s off-tracks antics received their due interest.

Given our reigning World Champion’s interest in taking selfies while riding a bike, should Bernie also put out a message saying ‘Think Before You Take A Selfie?’.

As we wrap up this show, we wonder why Formula 1 is this expensive and why Haas won’t have be paid in their first year despite delivering a dream result on their debut. And finally, a Vettel-Webber show on Formula 1? We’d love that, won’t we!

Tune in!
