Formula 1 Grid Talk Episode 31: The Driver Musical Chairs Begins

Welcome to Episode 31 of Formula 1 Grid Talk, hosted by George Howson!

In this episode joining George we have McLaren superfan Owen Davies, co-host of The Inside Line Podcast Kunal Shah, and motorsport journalist and broadcaster Chris Medland.

When Sebastian Vettel announced he would not be renewing his contract with Ferrari at the end of 2020, it kicked off a game of musical chairs that saw Sainz and Ricciardo quickly grab new seats, but may leave the four-time World Champion without a seat for himself in 2021…

In This Episode

  • Sebastian Vettel will leave Ferrari, then what?
  • Carlos Sainz makes a big step up going to Ferrari
  • Daniel Ricciardo will move to McLaren, is it the right move?
  • Doubleheaders at Silverstone and Austria
  • Will there be a Portuguese Grand Prix in 2020?
