Australian GP Podcast: Is Leclerc F1 title favourite already?

1 min read

We ask if Charles Leclerc is now the clear favourite for the Formula 1 world championship in our Australian Grand Prix review episode of The Race F1 Podcast.

Mark Hughes and Scott Mitchell join Edd Straw to explain how Leclerc and Ferrari dominated, and what went wrong for Max Verstappen and Red Bull.

There’s also a look at the de facto number two drivers, with Sergio Perez finishing second but Carlos Sainz having a disastrous weekend – culminating in his off on lap two.

The ongoing struggles of Mercedes, and the unexpected revival of McLaren’s fortunes are explained too.

Fernando Alonso’s pace, and misfortune, are another talking point, as is Alex Albon’s first point for Williams.

And with Aston Martin going home point-less and with the damage from four crashes to count the cost of, we detail its horrendous weekend.
