Podcast: The politics of upgrades and the stat F1 got wrong

1 min read

On the latest episode of Aramco F1 Focus, host Tim Silvey is again joined by Sean ‘Virtual Statman’ Kelly and our resident racing driver Alex Brundle.

Sean explains why F1 stats aren’t always what they seem to be as he reveals how an oft-mentioned historical stat about consecutive laps led was discovered to be wrong – just as Max Verstappen was set to eclipse it.

Following that, Alex dives into the thorny subject of car upgrades, and in particular the politics that often play a part behind the scenes and can have a considerable impact on driver psychology and performance.

And in our Aramco Focus, we hear from Roger England of Valvoline about the lubricant company’s recent link-up with Aston Martin.
