The fortnight gap between Australia and China has dragged on…but here we are!
In this week’s episode of the Inside Line F1 Podcast, Mithila and Kunal talk about the Ferrari vs. Mercedes battle that will resume at the Shanghai International Circuit on Sunday.
Will Ferrari’s pace be further validated or will it prove to be that Australia was a flash in the pan?
Our hosts also discuss how and why Max Verstappen doesn’t know of the ever-popular heel-toe concept that’s used in racing ever since. Is it because the junior formula cars have moved to Formula 1-style paddle shift cars too?
Like always, we’ve got a few funny ones on Mclaren, we decode the typical April Fool’s jokes that were cracked on April Fool’s Day, of course, we pick our favourite too.

In this week’s Talking Cricket podcast, we turn our attentions to a new rivalry and emerging tournament.
First up, it’s a retrospect on the fierce feud between India and Australia, one of cricket’s most competitive rivalries but one born out of less traditional reasoning.
And ahead of the third Test between the two nations, what better time to look at just what the fixture means and why it’s become such an enthralling contest.

Listen to all of this and more in the link below.
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!
