Russia vs. USA In Formula One Too?

Oct 11, 2015, 06:23 PM

Congrats Mercedes for dominating and winning the 2015 Formula 1 Constructors' Championship. Congrats to Sergio Perez and Force India for a well earned podium finish in Russia. But this week's episode of the Inside Line F1 Podcast has much much more.

Mithila and Kunal wonder if Vladmir Putin's interest in F1 in Russia puts Barack Obama under any pressure to match up at the upcoming GP in America. Is there a Russia vs. USA cold war developing in F1?

They also talk of Raikkonen's Maldonado styled move on Bottas, Alonso's possible retirement in 2018, Sainz's luck at turn 13 in Sochi, Pirelli's disastrous PR skills and if making team radio private makes any sense. Tune in! (Season 2015, Episode 35)
