As the latest series of Bring Back V10s approaches its end, we tackle another spectacular array of listeners’ questions about Formula 1 from 1989 to 2005.
Glenn Freeman brings in Gary Anderson, Edd Straw and Andrew van de Burgt to take on a typically varied inbox.
Could McLaren have stopped Ferrari’s early-2000s Formula 1 domination sooner (and beaten Ferrari’s best ever F1 car) had Adrian Newey not fallen out with Ron Dennis?
How would Ayrton Senna have fared in IndyCar? How much did McLaren lose from its brake-steer system being banned in 1998?
Would Jenson Button have taken Williams-BMW to greater heights than Ralf Schumacher and Juan Pablo Montoya? Could a Ford-powered 1994 McLaren with Mika Hakkinen (or Alain Prost) have battled Michael Schumacher’s Benetton-Ford for the championship?
Those are just some of the questions about front-of-the-grid topics. As you’d expected from the Bring Back V10s audience (and pundits), the backmarkers get plenty of airtime too, with the brief Shannon/Forti alliance, Giorgio Pantano’s career and the prospects of a Red Bull-owned Arrows team all featuring too.
And the panel also make their suggestions for F1’s worst livery of the V10 era.
