Episode 272 – Another Blast From The Past

during the Turkish Formula One Grand Prix at the Istanbul Park circuit on May 8, 2011 in Istanbul, Turkey.

Another return to a track from F1’s recent history is coming this week as the circus returns to the Istanbul Park circuit in Turkey, location of the notorious RedBull coming together that spelled the end of any cordial relationship between Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber back in 2010. F1 has a fairly brief history at the Turkish circuit, hosting races there from 2005 to 2011 with Felipe Massa being the most successful driver with 3 victories at the Herman Tilke designed circuit.

This week on the podcast we look forward to F1’s return to the circuit along with a look at a couple of the news stories that have cropped up during a rare week off for the teams. There’s also our thoughts on being a little burnt out by the races coming thick and fast this year as F1 tries to put on a calendar around the Covid-19 pandemic. There’s also our thoughts on the announcement of the 2021 Saudi Arabian Grand Prix, which seems to fly in the face of F1’s We Race As One campaign that’s been running all season.

There’s all the usual tangents on the show as well with a live interruption from Paul’s mum of the kind that usually ends up on the Patreon show and a Who’s A Total Shunt. Don’t forget our Discord server where you can sign up for our iRacing league join in the chat during the races and practice/qualifying sessions along with during the week as well and of course you can keep in touch on Facebook & Twitter as always .
