JA on F1 Podcast #7: New F1 game, driving standards and celebrating mechanics
Sep 13, 2012, 9:39 AM

Welcome to the JA on F1 podcast #7 for September, presented from the Williams F1 Team factory.

Welcome to the JA on F1 podcast #7 for September, presented from the Williams F1 Team factory.

This is the busiest podcast we have put together yet. It features not only a sneak preview of the new F1 2012 game from Codemasters and an interview with its creator, but also a celebration of 25 years of the Mechanics' Trust with contributions from my fellow Trustees Patrick Head, Sir Jackie Stewart and Jo Ramirez as well as former drivers Derek Warwick and John Watson.

Plus we speak to the next British driver aiming to follow in the footsteps of Lewis and Jenson - GP2 front runner James Calado. And Sky F1 commentator David Croft tells us why he and a group of engineers and journalists run around every F1 circuit the night before the race for charity.

It's full of interesting insights, some strong views on the driving of Romain Grosjean and Pastor Maldonado, expert opinion on the rights and wrongs of cockpit canopies plus insights from Ramirez on the Senna/Prost feud and some thoughts on Lewis Hamilton at McLaren.

We think it's a good listen, please send us your feedback.

This podcast is dedicated to the memory of Professor Sid Watkins, who was one of the longest standing Trustees.
