Welcome to the JA on F1 podcast for September.
This month with the announcement that Red Bull are giving the big break at their championship winning team to 24 year old Daniel Ricciardo, we are going to look at opportunity in F1.
In this edition we will hear from a woman making moves in F1 – Claire Williams has been given the opportunity to progress to the highest levels of team management and is now deputy team principal at Williams. She opens up to Holly Samos.
Making moves on the track recently has been Caterham’s Guido van der Garde, who was given a chance this year by Caterham – after a difficult start to the season Guido had a breakthough result in Hungary and in qualifying at Spa. We’ll find out what F1 looks like from his cockpit and how he sees Caterham’s progress.
And we have insight from two of our regular luminaries – former Williams chief operations engineer Mark Gillan runs the rule over the Ricciardo move and looks at how the teams are gearing up for the challenge of all new technology in 2014, while Zak Brown founder of Just Marketing International, F1’s pre-eminent sponsor finder and business expert, explains why there aren’t enough sponsors to go around all the teams and what impact Russia is having on the business side of F1.
