S1 E3: Goodbye Monaco, Hello E-sports

*This week's Episode may sound different. For obvious reasons we were unable to get to our studio!*

Finley Crebolder and Michelle Foster kick off episode 3 of Planet F1’s podcast by going over the ramifications of the sport's most famous race, the Monaco Grand Prix, being cancelled, and try to figure out just how the 2020 season is going to take place.

The global pandemic isn't just affecting this season's calendar anymore, either. The big regulation changes originally slated for 2021 have been delayed a year and, failing to hide their disappointment, they go over why this decision was made and what it means going forward.

With a lack of real life track action, E-sports has stepped up, and Finley and Michelle attempt to answer all the big questions surrounding it. Can it fill the void? Will more F1 drivers take part? Would a Kimi gaming stream be the greatest thing in motor racing? 

With the help of some comments from the site's readers, they then wrap things up by discussing Pedro de la Rosa's somewhat controversial claim that the Hamilton/Alonso pairing was the best ever.
