Fresh perspectives on F1 2023 with the Aramco F1 Focus podcast

1 min read

The Race's Aramco F1 Podcast brought you fresh perspectives on the 2023 Formula 1 season with Tim Silvey, resident racing driver Alex Brundle and Sean ‘Virtual Statman’ Kelly, plus a host of special guests.

On this episode, Alex explains the rationale behind the old motor racing adage of trying to win a race at the slowest possible speed, and why in F1 going fast is sometimes about going slow.

Following that, Sean opens his statistical archives and looks back on those rare occasions when usually dominant teams suddenly have an unexpected blip.

And in our Aramco Focus, we hear from Aston Martin performance director Tom McCullough, who explains how teams go about extracting performance from their cars.

On this episode, Alex muses on how the sprint weekend format contributed to Mercedes and Ferrari running into ride height problems at Austin.

Plus Sean lets his statistical mind run wild as he looks back on the first 200 races of the current turbo-hybrid era.

And in our Aramco Focus, we hear once again from Aston Martin performance director Tom McCullough, who explains the process by which teams bring upgrades to their cars.

On this episode, Sean gives us a deep dive on ambiguous statistics, after Max Verstappen's run of dominance led to statisticians reappraising previous records.

Following that, Alex climbs onto his soapbox to have his say on the thorny issue of track limits and how he - as a driver - thinks the sport needs to evolve.

And in our Aramco Focus, we have the final instalment of our trio of interviews with Aston Martin performance director Tom McCullough, who this week explains how teams go about designing a new car.
