Ahead of what should be one of the most interesting races of the year from a car upgrade perspective, host Edd Straw and former F1 technical director Gary Anderson convene to discuss the changes coming to the cars in Imola – or later – and how they’ll be assessed. Of course, there’s a particular focus on Mercedes, with the former world champions set to introduce a ‘course correcting’ upgrade to their troublesome W14.

After that we switch focus to a topic many of you have wanted to hear more about – the tech behind F1’s TV coverage.

Edd is joined by Dean Locke, F1’s Director of Broadcast and Media, who has worked for F1 and been heavily involved in the television coverage for a quarter of a century. He offers a unique perspective on the evolution of the coverage, the remarkable technological effort required to bring it to our screens, and what new developments will be coming in the near future.

And finally, Gary answers a couple of questions from listeners; the first on whether it would be feasible to ban front and/or rear wings to improve racing, and the second on the changes the drivers (and teams) can make to the cars during the race.
