It was a historic day for Indian Motorsport as Kush Maini drove in his maiden F1 test with Alpine at the Red Bull Ring in Austria on 5th June, 2024. Kush’s test was a part of Alpine’s young driver test under the “testing previous cars” (TPC) program that is permitted by Formula 1. I was there! A dream come true to have had my first ever Formula 1 test with BWT Alpine F1 Team. Massive thank you to the entire team for this incredible opportunity.

Labeling any active sports figure as the greatest of all time is problematic—especially if the man in question is only 26 years old. However, there are no Formula 1 fans who would argue that Verstappen already hasn’t elevated himself into a bracket not far off from the likes of Lewis Hamilton and Michael Schumacher. While he definitely isn’t alongside them yet, it’s exciting to see such a dominant figure emerge in F1, and many fans believe that his best years are ahead of him. But what will it take for him to win over those who might think he’s a tad overrated and cement himself as the best ev ..read more

What a Formula 1 debut weekend for Oliver Bearman! For starters, he didn’t crash – and mind you, he had two FPs less than the other 19 races at the world’s fastest street circuit. He almost knocked Lewis Hamilton out of Q3, pulled off overtakes in the Grand Prix to score his first points for Ferrari in Formula 1.  And yes, he’s scored more points in Formula 1 in 2024…than in Formula 2. Heck, he also won the “Driver of the Day” in Saudi Arabia. Thanks to Bearman, Ferrari now has three drivers in the top-10 of the Drivers’ Championship! The 2024 Saudi Arabian Grand Prix was the best adv ..read more

Mohammed Ben Sulayem was jealous of the attention Christian Horner was getting with his scandal. So MBS decided to a scandal or three, for that matter, of his. Yes, it’s the 2024 Saudi Arabian Grand Prix, but we expect MBS and the ongoing Red Bull Racing power struggles to take centre stage. Will the Red Bull Racing team agree to internal compromises OR will they implode and fall apart? Let’s hope the end to their dominance isn’t as rubbish as it seems from the outside. In this episode of the Inside Line F1 Podcast, Soumil Arora and Kunal Shah dissect the MBS and Red Bull-gate – what exact ..read more

Max Verstappen won the 2024 Bahrain Grand Prix by a whooping 22 second margin to Sergio Perez. In 2023, a season he absolutely dominated, his victory margin in Bahrain was only 11 seconds.

Let’s add to the doomsday prediction with this stat – for the first time ever in Formula 1 history there was no retirement at the opening race of the season!  In this episode of the Inside Line F1 Podcast, Soumil Arora and Kunal Shah look at some of the off-beat stories from the 2024 Bahrain Grand Prix.

Will Red Bull Racing reveal their decision from the investigation into Christian Horner’s alleged misdemeanours at Formula 1’s opening race in Bahrain? What’s your take, will Horner continue in his role at the World Champion team or will he be asked to go? Of course, any off-track story of such a nature will take attention from Red Bull Racing’s RB20, if it continues to dominate Formula 1. But can it, will it? The narratives at the start of the season could well be different from the middle and the end of the long Formula 1 season. In fact, the pecking order itself might be different in Ba ..read more
