The second pre-season test is underway in Barcelona. While the form factor of most teams is predictable, in this week’s episode of the Inside Line F1 Podcast, Mithila and Kunal wonder which team will actually put in a ‘PR’ lap. Also, which team needs one the most?
On the note of sponsors, there’s talk that Force India might turn pink IF a particular sponsor joins them.
We tell you Vijay Mallya’s link with the brand and name Pinky and why at least two people wouldn’t mind the Force India being coloured pink.
Williams followed up their JCB announcement with a partnership announcement with Bombardier. Is the air plane partner the best (and cheapest) way to transport spares across the world just in case Lance Stroll turns out to be the next Pastor Maldonado?
Finally, we talk about Hamilton-Bottas’ team-mate relationship, Hamilton-branded Monster Energy can, the dip in Formula 1 viewership in 2016, before we finally conclude with our ‘The Joke’s On Mclaren’ section. Tune in!
The Sport360 Talking Cricket podcast returns after a brief Pakistan Super League enforced hiatus with the team talking all things T20 cricket.
In a bumper show, Sport360.com deputy editor Barnaby Read is joined by Sport360 regional editor Joy Chakravarty to look at the shortest format of the game.
Not only that, Pakistan Super League chairman Najam Sethi speaks on the phone after hosting this year’s PSL final in Lahore on what it took to stage the final, match fixing and the future of himself and the tournament.
We also chat with Tymal Mills about his life as a globetrotting T20 cricketer and Chirag Suri rounds things off to speak about life after becoming the UAE’s first IPL player.
All of this and more in this week’s podcast which you can listen to below.
In this week’s episode of the Inside Line F1 Podcast, Mithila and Kunal refrain from cracking too many Mclaren-Honda jokes as they discuss the world of Formula One as testing season kicks-off.
The ‘t-wing’ has been the talk of the paddock and the pre-season test in Barcelona. While most teams have one, Mercedes have gone and got themselves two.
Will the t-wing be outlawed, like the t-bone, and what about the shark-fin cover which seems more like an ugly whiteboard this season? The 2017 cars look sexy, no doubt, but get rid of these aero add-ons, please, say the team.
They also discuss the trigger for Williams-JCB partnership, Liberty Media’s liberty to Formula 1 teams for generating social media content, Fernando Alonso’s Red Bull Racing inspired helmet design and how RAI won Hamilton’s helmet design competition.
