LOVECARS ON THE GRID. LEWIS 100TH POLE – BTCC THRUXTON – FORMULA E MONACO. EP8
Welcome to Episode 8 of the “Lovecars On the Grid” podcast, the global motorsport roundup!
This week with Tiff Needell and Paul Woodman, we toast Sir Lewis Hamilton the GOAT in terms of pole positions with his 100th pole of his career, after another almost flawless weekend of racing in what’s normally a bit of a snoozefest at the Barcelona Grand Prix.
Have Red Bull cracked under the pressure? Long pit stops. Bad strategy. No second driver to rely on. Or are Mercedes-AMG just in a different class?
Did Valtteri Bottas disobey orders to make Lewis’ pass more difficult? And are Lewis and Max Verstappen just on a completely different level to the rest of the field? All is revealed!
Also on this weeks show, it’s Formula E in Monte Carlo. A BRILLIANT spectacle and great to see Formula E looking so good on this historic street circuit. Still not sure about the little gimmicks though… what do you think?
And it was the return of the BTCC at Thruxon, the fastest race circuit in the UK. Reigning champion Ash Sutton will be determined to make an impact, together with old hands, Jason Plato and Colin Turkington, and the only rookie in the field, Rick Parfitt jnr. Are the rear wheel drive cars better? Or would the front wheel drive cars take the advantage?
We also take a look at the reverse grids in Formula 3. Are they ruining the opportunities for the best drivers? Together with the whole Thruxton roundup with MINI racing, Ginetta Cup and Formula 4.
