In the latest edition of The Race F1 Podcast we answer listener questions, starting with a discussion about what Mercedes technical director called Lewis Hamilton’s “unblemished record” as a grand prix driver.
Scott Mitchell, Mark Hughes and Edd Straw start off discussing Hamilton’s on-track ethics before moving onto answering a wide range of questions about contemporary and historic F1.
George Russell’s chances of earning a Mercedes seat in the future and Carlos Sainz Jr’s Ferrari hopes are tackled in two questions about the driver market.
And with the 2020 season on hiatus, we also discuss how big a threat to F1 the COVID-19 pandemic is and whether F1 will push for more new teams to join the grid given the threat to the existing 10 outfits.
The relative merits of Kimi Raikkonen and Juan Pablo Montoya at their peaks are debated, along with a look back at the Phoenix F1 team that unsuccessfully attempted to run the remains of the Prost team in 2002.
