F1 podcast: The pointless posturing in FIA's latest misstep

1 min read

The FIA cited Lewis Hamilton's status as a role model in its decision to revisit the Mercedes driver's track-crossing punishment at Formula 1's Qatar Grand Prix. But was it fair to have done so?

That's the main question on this episode of The Race F1 Podcast, where Ben Anderson, Glenn Freeman, and host Edd Straw unpick the FIA's wording - and discuss how that's turned a sensible initiative into a silly mess.

They also compare that to the FIA's response to another controversial moment from the previous race, Lance Stroll's shove of a team member, before exploring the Aston Martin F1 driver's current lack of form.

There's a proper delve into the world of Mercedes too as the upgrade it has planned for the US GP and what it expects from it is explained, plus a debate on whether the Austin race will be kinder to two drivers struggling at the moment - Sergio Perez and Logan Sargeant - and a look at Daniel Ricciardo's long-anticipated return from injury.
