Peter Windsors' TheFlyingLap
I'm not sure if you guys and girls have seen his online programme, called "The Flying Lap" before but he's just completed episode 82.
Peter is very well known in F1 and hosts the show normally on a Wednesday evening, UK time, occasionally on Tuesdays.
He attracts good and interesting guests to take part. He also invites the viewers, which come from all over the globe, to put questions to himself or the guests. The show is live and if you miss it, it's available on Youtube a day or so later.
I recommend that you give it a try, as Peter is very knowledgeable about many aspects of F1 and it gives you the chance to ask questions that you may have burning away inside you. (I personally have had several questions answered to date).
Peter is definitely all for the fans and this programme brings the F1 circus closer to them. This week he had Paul Hembery (Director of Motorsport, Pirelli), Rob Wilson (Driver Coach) and Mark Barnett (WilliamsF1 strategist).
The show is available here: -
He also gives out a prize for the best question from the fans, of which I'm a previous winner!
Fantastic podcast I agree, always worth a listen.
Peter is well-known on this side of the pond too as he used to be the pit reporter for the SPEED Network's F1 telecasts. I was unaware of his online show, but will give it a try.
By the way, what was your question that bestowed you the honor of best question?
Rob Wilson is an absolute legend. I listened to him once a few years ago when he was giving some "basic" theory to a couple of young and up and coming drivers (if I remember correctly I think a certain Josef Newgarden was there) and the amount of tiny tiny details about braking, downshifts, weight transfer etc he was talking about really do make you respect racing drivers a whole bunch more. Well, at least the ones who get it right and manage to go fast.
It was in Ep 44 and the question was: -

I used to love going to the test sessions and being able to walk down the paddock and the pit lane during the lunch time breaks.
