FF1S.18.04 Raging Bulls - Azerbaijan Grand Prix

Who would have thought Azerbaijan would turn out to be a future classic Grand Prix venue? Cheeka, Phill and Terry pick through the bits of carbon fibre as they attempt to analyse the Baku race. Bottas hits a rogue shard, the Red Bulls hit each other and Grosjean hits the ghost of Marcus Ericsson in an entertainingly chaotic race that makes for entertainingly defamatory debate.

FF1S.18.03 Double Stack To The Future - Chinese Grand Prix

Copy books were blotted, stacks were doubled and easy wins were thrown away. It could only have been the Chinese Grand Prix, or perhaps quite a few other races. Cheeka, Phill and Terry talk about the inevitable disasters that befell most of the grid, apart from Daniel Riccardo, and there’s a very sweary quiz. F*ck yeah.

FF1S.19.01 - Why does it always drain on me? - Australian Grand Prix

The Australian Grand Prix threw up plenty of surprises, not least Valtteri Bottas remembering how to drive and chuck the F-bomb around rather liberally. But some things never change, and Williams were reassuringly shit. Cheeka, Phill and Terry mull the outwash from Albert Park with all their usual insight and professionalism. That is, not much.
