The final JA on F1 podcast of 2012 is a real cracker, with a panel of F1 experts in the studio analysing the key talking points of the F1 season and we also have interviews with World Champion Sebastian Vettel and Red Bull Boss Christian Horner.
In the studio we have McLaren Sporting Director Sam Michael, Oliver Weingarten, general secretary of the F1 Teams’ Association, leading F1 journalist Mark Hughes, and F1’s top photographer Darren Heath, who brings some fascinating observations on driving styles from standing trackside, with input from Pirelli’s motorsport boss Paul Hembery and insight into F1 business from Zak Brown, founder of JMI.
– How the World Championship was won, analysis of the performances of the main title contenders..and whether Fernando Alonso is the “Dick Dastardly” of F1
– The two halves of the F1 season; was the sequence of multiple winners in the first half of the season good for the sport? We get a handle on why 2012 happened the way it did.
– The big stories of 2012: Hamilton to Mercedes, Kimi Raikkonen’s triumphant comeback, the Concorde Agreement negotiations.
– Why the racing in 2013 will be even closer than this year.
