F1 Podcast: Mercedes' progress and team-mate rivalry

1 min read

Mercedes' recent upswing in form and George Russell's performance against Lewis Hamilton coming up to the end of the second year of their Formula 1 partnership are discussed in this new edition of The Race F1 Podcast.

Host Edd Straw is joined by Valentin Khorounzhiy and a special guest, Brazilian journalist and broadcaster Lito Cavalcanti, for the Brazilian Grand Prix preview episode.

There is also a discussion of - and some caveated sympathy for - Felipe Massa's bid to overturn the outcome of the 2008 championship.

And, with no Brazilians having raced in F1 full-time since Massa's exit from the grid in 2017, Cavalcanti and Khorounzhiy make their picks of who from the current crop of juniors looks likeliest to snap that barren streak.

Finally, the panel tackle questions from The Race Members' Club, including whether the likes of Max Verstappen and Lance Stroll came into F1 too young, and whether Alex Albon is best-positioned to be the next team-mate to Verstappen at Red Bull.

The Race F1 Podcast is available free to subscribe to from all good podcast suppliers, including Apple Podcasts and Spotify.
