Inside Line F1 Podcast: A 'Ecclestone' steps down

Final Inside Line F1 Podcast of the year with Kunal Shah and Mithila Mehta Shah discussing the 'Ecclestone' name stepping down.

So it seems that the Ecclestone surname isn’t necessarily a ticket to outstanding business acumen say Mithila and Kunal.

They talk about Bernie's daughter Tamara stepping down from the role of director of her beauty company.

Further, they wonder if the Lauda-Hamilton bromance was timed with Lewis-Nicole’s split and if Toto Wolff is Formula 1’s ‘crying wolf’!

Is Kimi Raikkonen capable of aiding Sebastian Vettel’s title challenge? Could Kevin Magnussen have helped save Jenson Button-Jessica Michibata’s marriage?

They also talk about Renault’s smart $1.50 purchase of Lotus but believe the French manufacturer is displaying lack of smartness when it comes to their driver line-up.

And lastly, on the second anniversary of his life-threatening accident, they pray for Michael Schumacher’s speedy recovery.

Season 2015; Episode 42:

Kunal Shah is a former racer who works in the sports business industry. He pens his view on Formula 1 on his personal blog: kunalsf1blog.
