Inside Line F1 Podcast: Verstappen showing his age?

Kunal Shah and Mithila Mehta rewind to the Australian Grand Prix weekend discussing the highs and lows of the 2016 Formula 1 season opener.

Max Verstappen showed his trademark speed at the Australian GP, but did he also show some immaturity? Is he behaving like a typical teenager asks Kunal and Mithila.

Verstappen's request on the radio for 'team orders' shows that he's learned well from our current and previous World Champions.

In addition, they wonder why Nico Rosberg's race winning drive wasn't covered as well on TV just as Lewis Hamilton's off-tracks antics received their due interest.

Given our reigning World Champion's interest in taking selfies while riding a bike, should Bernie Ecclestone also put out a message saying 'Think Before You Take A Selfie?'.

As we wrap up this show, we wonder why F1 is this expensive and why Haas F1 team won't have be paid in their first year despite delivering a dream result on their debut.

And finally, a Vettel-Webber show on F1?

Here's a video preview to the podcast.
