Aston Martin’s possible Honda deal, Alpine’s internal ructions and Daniel Ricciardo’s seat fitting are all discussed on the latest edition of The Race F1 Podcast.
Valentin Khorounzhiy and Scott Mitchell-Malm join Edd Straw to hit the big topics that have dominated F1 news in recent days and help sort the rumour from the fact.
Honda’s ongoing participation in F1 from 2026 onwards has been in the balance for some time, but as The Race reported last week a deal to power Aston Martin is looking increasingly likely.
As for Alpine, it came into 2023 targeting a repeat of its fourth place in the constructors’ championship and to be closer to the top three than fifth place but has fallen short. Given CEO Laurent Rossi hasn’t been shy of criticising them, we discuss the impact that has on the team.
And with Daniel Ricciardo, F1’s most talked-about reserve driver, the subject of rumours about the possibility of him replacing Nyck De Vries, we delve into where things really stand at AlphaTauri.
