The latest episode of The Race F1 Podcast delves into the FIA’s ongoing review of the way the late-race safety car period was handled in the 2021 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, and how seriously to take the suggestions Lewis Hamilton could retire.

Mark Hughes and Scott Mitchell join Edd Straw to explain what the governing body’s process is – and is not – about and the areas where change is needed to ensure the FIA’s credibility is rebuilt after what happened in Abu Dhabi.

We explore how Hamilton’s ongoing silence and the implied threat of him walking away might feed into that process, and ask whether he could really not be on the grid for htethestart of the season.

There’s also a look at the other big stories in Formula 1, including Marcin Budkowski’s departure from the Alpine team and what it means for the Renault-owned operation’s ambitions.

And we discuss new Aston Martin team principal Mike Krack and what qualities he will bring to the role.
