Podcast: Mastering a necessary evil of modern F1

Max Verstappen’s recent domination goes under the statistical lens in this episode of the Aramco F1 Focus podcast.

Host Tim Silvey is joined by Alex Brundle and Sean ‘Virtual Statman’ Kelly, who examines Verstappen’s run of consecutive laps led that until recently had run unbroken, where that streak ranks all-time, and, most significantly, how impressive it is considering the current regulations in place.

Race management is just one of the attributes in Verstappen’s armoury and Brundle looks at this requirement of F1 in more detail – explaining which drivers are best at it, the role F1 teams play in helping them, and whether it’s an innate skill or something that can be learned – as well as outlining good and bad examples of it.

And this episode’s Aramco Focus features The Race F1 Tech Show’s Gary Anderson, who doubles as Chair of Judges for F1 in Schools – a competition helping to inspire the engineers of the future.
