Why No One Wanted Pole

In this week’s episode of the Inside Line F1 Podcast, Rishi and Kunal tell you why neither of the Mercedes drivers wanted to be on pole. They stir the pot further by wondering if we missed an exciting Hamilton vs. Rosberg battle thanks to Raikkonen and Alonso’s scary crash. Given Mercedes’s dominance at the Red Bull Ring, should the circuit (whose name we can’t pronounce yet!) be renamed to the Mercedes Ring? Lastly, we cheer Nico Hulkenberg’s epic Le Mans win. Tune in and laugh along! (Season 2015; Episode 21)
