We ask if the new Mercedes Formula 1 upgrade package is legal – and perhaps more importantly if it’s considered within the intent of the regulations, in the latest episode of The Race F1 Podcast.

Scott Mitchell joins Edd Straw to explain why some teams are questioning the Mercedes design – particularly its wing mirrors – with Gary Anderson also cropping up to give his thoughts on the new Mercedes and the challenge of porpoising.

We also delve into how Alfa Romeo and Valtteri Bottas got on after their difficult test at Barcelona, and discuss how Kevin Magnussen is settling in with Haas.

The possibility of extra running for Haas after its freight dramas, and the late scuffle between Lance Stroll and Fernando Alonso are also discussed.
