Welcome to the JA on F1 podcast for June.
This month we have a great mix of personalities, intrigue and insights into the money flow in F1. We talk to a Hollywood legend, the world champion team boss, a former F1 driver and we get right to the heart of the stories of the moment, with analysis of the secret Mercedes Pirelli test and JA on F1 technical adviser and former Williams chief engineer Mark Gillan tells us what potential benefit Mercedes may have got from the test.
F1 Business expert Zak Brown CEO of Just Marketing looks at where the money is coming from these days, why the Concorde Agreement still isn’t signed, six months after the last one expired and why CVC is talking about postponing the flotation of F1.
With the British Grand Prix taking place later this month, BRDC president Derek Warwick gives us a very frank appraisal of how the circuit has learned lessons from last year’s washout.
And we catch up with Oscar winning movie director Ron Howard after the first preview screenings of Rush – his film about James Hunt and Niki Lauda.
It’s a must for all F1 fans looking to get closer to the sport.
