Formula 1’s summer break is over and Formula Feud is back with an all new back to school special. We open the show with the big news that Kimi Raikkonen is confirmed for Ferrari for 2016. As if you could miss that news. Everyone, including most of the hosts of this show, thought Valtteri Bottas was going to be in red next year but it seems like those rumors have only hurt his relationship with Williams. How will Formula 1’s silly season pan out now that the biggest vacant seat has been filled?
Romain Grojean echoes Brad’s feelings from last week about the Renault buyout of Lotus. Who cares if he was fired before? He would be a lock as a French driver for a new French team.
Brad and Brandon have a discussion about heat. What is it, and who has it? The conversation sparked after Daniel Ricciardo said his performance in 2014 should maintain his reputation as a good driver for at least another year.
We discuss some of the ideas talked about in the latest F1 strategy group meeting with the cleverly titled slide “Stay Grounded”. The big idea getting kicked around now is the ground effect for the cars in 2017.
All this and more before we even get to the race preview. One of Formula 1’s most iconic tracks is up next in the calendar and we are very excited. Will the new stat procedures be enough for Sebastian Vettel to mount an offense for the driver’s championship? The speculation runs wild in this all new episode of Formula Feud!
