Welcome to the October edition of the JA on F1 podcast, brought to you by UBS.
This month we’ve been quick to react to the confirmation of Lewis Hamilton’s move to Mercedes – we analyse why Hamilton jumped from a sporting and business point of view with former McLaren Mercedes driver, turned driver manager Mark Blundell and study the timeline and behind the scenes details with Daily Telegraph F1 writer Tom Cary.
Plus with the recent death of pioneering F1 doctor Professor Sid Watkins, we have a moving tribute from “Senna” film-maker, fellow surgeon and close friend of the Prof, Manish Pandey.
With six flyway races in eight weeks, we get an amazing insight into how the teams move the cars and equipment around the world,from Caterham team manager Graham Watson, while F1 business expert Zak Brown tells us about why Singapore has renewed its F1 contract for five years and why it’s so important to F1.
And we speak to Marussia F1 Team boss Graeme Lowden about the challenges of staying alive at the back of the grid and why F1 urgently needs to get its act together on cost control or risk losing some teams.
