Spanish Grand Prix Podcast


Despite Sunday being Nico Rosberg's first win in almost 12 months, the Pitpass team completely ignores this championship milestone as it instead ploughs into the hot topics from the F1 paddock.

Joining host Mat Coch is Max Noble who, together with editor Chris Balfe take a deeper look into the events of the Spanish Grand Prix weekend, paying particular attention to the continued trials and tribulations at McLaren.

Coch has a bee in his bonnet about Red Bull, branding the team arrogant and childish for the way it has handled an admittedly difficult start to the 2015 season, while the Pitpass team is quick to heap praise on the situation in which Ferrari finds itself.

As the Strategy Group, with a little help from CVC co-chairman Donald Mackenzie, ponders the future of the sport, Noble reveals his grand hopes for the 2017 regulation set including giving the teams greater freedom and a choice of tyres, while Coch suggests stripping radio out of the cars is all that really needs to be done to improve the show.

Balfe scoffs at the notion of Lewis Hamilton joining Ferrari but does ask just how long Felipe Massa might hold his drive alongside Valtteri Bottas at Williams, and indeed whether the Finn could be tempted away from Grove.

There is also the revelation that Sauber could well be the best bet for Audi, should the German manufacturer elect to join the Formula One grid, with the team revealing there were discussions between the Swiss outfit and a potential purchaser last season.

To round out the show Balfe takes off the gloves and gives Formula One Management a hiding over the F1 Live Timing app, branding it not fit for purpose as he seemingly leads the crusade for Formula One fans who have paid their 19.99 only to have the app fail in every race so far this season.
