Christmas Special Podcast: JA on F1 readers' view of 2013 and F1 direction for future
Dec 25, 2013, 3:00 PM

A very Happy Christmas to everyone who celebrates it and to those who do not; compliments of the season.

A very Happy Christmas to everyone who celebrates it and to those who do not; compliments of the season.

As a bonus, after a really fantastic year on JA on F1, we've done a special fans' eye podcast featuring some JA on F1 readers giving us their views on the season just gone and looking at F1's pathway ahead with new rules for 2014.

We discuss Sebastian Vettel, Fernando Alonso and others, look at which UK TV coverage they prefer and why, we talk about attitudes to the Pirelli tyres and to the 2014 hybrid turbo engines.

The session was recorded at the recent day JA on F1 prizewinners spent at Mercedes' HQ in Brackley, driving the F1 simulator, in a competition organised with Mercedes AMG Petronas F1 team and our partner UBS.

There is first hand feedback from the readers about what that once in a lifetime experience was like and Mercedes F1 reserve driver Sam Bird gives us his thoughts on how the readers did.

The winners were Patrick, Lucy, Steven, Alex, Daniel, Nathan, Neil and Joseph.
