We bring this weeks Formula 1 Podcast in with a discussion on the Russian Grand Prix. Which is a race that Brad and I are not very fond of. However, this race did not disappoint! The excitement from the opening laps in Sochi turned out to be foreshadowing for the excitement that would come in the week following. Some of the most interesting Formula 1 news in a long time came when Red Bull dropped a bomb on the F1 fans. That bomb of course was the news that Formula 1 driver Daniil Kvyat was being demoted to Torro Rosso and Max Verstappen was being moved up! Brad and I spend a long time discussing our views on this and the various controversies surrounding it. We also discuss what sort of common reactions we have seen to this online.
Once we finish with that controversy there is another one that seems to have been almost overshadowed by Red Bull, and that is Lewis Hamilton and Mercedes. The internet is a broad source for Formula 1 conspiracies, and we always enjoy them. However, we this one seems so crazy we think it may actually be true! Is Mercedes really sabotaging Lewis Hamilton to promote their German agenda? We will tell you what we think!
