Podcast: What shock exit means for McLaren's F1 rebuild plans

1 min read

McLaren's shock technical departure and upgrade expectations for the Japanese Grand Prix top the bill in the latest edition of The Race F1 Podcast.

Josh Suttill and Glenn Freeman join Edd Straw to explain why David Sanchez has left McLaren just three months into his job there and what it means for the team's recovery plans.

We also discussion the significance of performance at Suzuka this weekend given the last Japanese Grand Prix was just six months ago, making this the best test yet of how much progress teams have really made.

The case for Suzuka being F1's best track is also made, as well as why it needs to remain a mainstain on the calendar beyond its current contract, which runs to 2029.

Home hero Yuki Tsunoda's progress and Liberty Media's takeover of MotoGP are also tackled, including what F1's growth in recent times might tell us about what to expect for MotoGP.
