Inside Line F1 Podcast: Can Hamilton rebound from Baku's travails?

Pre-Austrian Grand Prix Inside Line F1 Podcast where Kunal Shah and Mithila Mehta share their predictions and discuss Lewis Hamilton's season.

Overview of the Red Bull Ring

If he has any hopes of winning his third championship on the trot, the real Hamilton needs to stand up – show us the quick racer he is, minus the distractions (music, movies and Penelope Cruz).

Meanwhile Niki Lauda was spotted sharing ice cream with Nico Rosberg, where was Hamilton in all of this?

Hamilton is smartly planning his retirement with Mercedes – he will be building supercars and doing demos, basically becoming the next David Coulthard?

With autonomous cars likely to be the biggest threat to Formula 1, guess all drivers need retirement plans.

Apart from hanging out with Lauda, Rosberg has been doing various other things we thought are Hamilton’s specialty.

This includes hanging out at exotic destinations (Ibiza), posing with private jets for no apparent reason, fanboy moments with Hollywood stars and pissing off F1’s sponsors. Hopefully, the next Hamilton-inspired move he pulls off is winning a World Championship.

Strange things are happening in F1, Hamilton and Rosberg’s relationship has never been better, thanks to some dubious bonding in a Monaco swimming pool.

The poster boy of capitalism, Bernie Ecclestone, is planning to do away with bonus payments for the big teams. The silly season rumours continue to fly, will Kimi Raikkonen stay or go?

More speed but less races, should we be excited about the 2017 season? Or is it all a marketing hoax? Britain may have voted to Brexit, but when will F1 get the big Ecc-xit?

Mclaren-Honda and Fernando Alonso continue to make a joke of themselves on and off track and we are happy to laugh along.

With the 2016 Austrian Grand Prix coming up, we predict that the Red Bull Ring might need to be renamed as Mercedes Ring.

Season 2016, Episode 22:

 

 

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.
