For the first time in 2023 we discuss a Ferrari victory on The Race F1 Podcast, albeit at the Le Mans 24 Hours rather than in a grand prix.
Sam Smith, fresh from Le Mans, and Scott Mitchell-Malm join Edd Straw to discuss why Ferrari can be successful on its return to top-class sportscar racing while still floundering in F1.
We explain how the way the hypercar project is run differs from the Ferrari F1 project and in what areas there is crossover, as well as whether the sportscar programme might have been a distraction.
There’s also a look at the impact of Ferrari’s latest F1 updates, and whether this season’s struggles has to go down as another chapter in what is all-too-frequently a tale of underachievement for the Scuderia.
And with Charles Leclerc at Le Mans to witness Ferrari F1 reserve Antonio Giovinazzi win alongside Alessandro Pier Guidi and James Calado, we ask if his talent is being wasted.
Lastly, could the Le Mans success pile yet more pressure on the struggling F1 team?
