Sorry that something went wrong, repeat again!

We have winter here so no joy thanks James wekeends are getting boring. This break mseems longer than last year


Two podcast in month, yea baby 🙂


Man, this summer break is too long.


I cannot agree more 🙂


Did Mike Gasgoine really say “I think you need a budget cap, but you leave people free to spend whatever you like” (around 26:04)

I wasn’t sure if he meant the ‘but’ part as a description of the current situation, or to mean that people choose where they spend the budget (all on wheel nuts to paraphrase a previous podcast).


Hello James

A special request,would appreciate an article on Rubert Kubica, as to how close he is to returning to F1, a detail update on his health.


That would mean we would need to sit down wit someone and go on the record as to how he is……looks like he will not be doing that. 🙁


You can write an article as long as you have some information. But from what I could find in the media, there isn’t much info out there. I looks like Kubica is staying put and doesn’t go out much.

Or maybe that media lost interest in him and don’t even bother checking how he’s doing.


James, thank you for the Podcast and all the work you are doing to keep fans engaged:-)

One idea from my side – could you create a post for us to brainstorm on what will happen in the second half of the season? Who will win which races and why? Can Alonso capitalize on his lead and what has to be true? Who stands the highest chance – Alonso, Vettel or Hamilton?




If I were being mischievous, I’d say you were hedging your bets (selective quote…):

“….Who will win which races and why? Can Alonso capitalize on his lead and what has to be true? Who stands the highest chance – Alonso, Vettel or Hamilton?
