JA on F1 podcast #5: Behind the scenes special - Button, De Villota, Whiting, Todt
Jul 3, 2013, 10:47 AM

Welcome to the JA on F1 podcast for July.

Welcome to the JA on F1 podcast for July.

This month we have a very special edition coming from behind the scenes at the FIA Sport Conference week in Goodwood. The three day event, in the days leading up to the British Grand Prix weekend, featured a wide cast of characters and was focussed on the challenges facing the sport, as well as the work that has been done in key areas.

We had a unique opportunity to go behind the scenes and talk with some of the big names;

In a rare interview, FIA Race Director Charlie Whiting explains his role and talks about the new rules on Driver Penalty points and the 2014 engines. In a fascinating insight, he estimates that the 2014 cars will be around three seconds per lap slower than today's cars.

Maria de Villota was injured a year ago in a horrific accident while testing the Marussia F1 car at Duxford. She talks about her recovery and why it has made her a passionate ambassador for safety.

FIA President Jean Todt talks about his vision for the sport and particularly the new generation 2014 F1 turbo engines. He also speaks about the International Tribunal hearing.

Formula E CEO Alejandro Agag gives us an update on progress with the new series due to kick off in September 2014.

Former Williams chief engineer and JA on F1 technical adviser Mark Gillan looks at the fiasco at Silverstone with tyre failures.

And in a reflective interview Jenson Button talks about revising his expectations in the face of a disappointing car this year and advises his team mate Sergio Perez to learn from Fernando Alonso.

It’s a must for all F1 fans looking to get closer to the sport.
