Can you imagine if this sort of thing was about when we still had people like Ken Tyrell, John Cooper, Piers Courage, Clark, Chapman etc ? I think it would have been very interesting to hear what they had to say.
I don't know if the Rob Widdows stuff did on Radio in the 70s would be similar to that?:

Love the chat with Warwick. How I wish he'd lumped one on Schumacher!

I was still familiar with the Motorsport Magazine podcast and was rather reluctant at first. Well worth listening to. I don't remember him talking in detail how he likes team briefings. Arguably the Godfather/architect/sowed the seeds that enabled Team Schumacher.

Its US centric, but you might like the "dinner with racers" series. They are typically longer than BTG (especially when they couldn't shut Bobby Unser up biggrin ). There is a recent one with Derek bell and an older one with Brian Redman along with many others - I liked Bobby Allison's one ".. then he went to beating his nose on my fists..". The Don Garlits one tells an incredible story and the very first one with Andy Lally and cheating in NASCAR is pretty funny too. Lots and lots of names past and present https://www.dinnerwithracers.com you should find it on most podcast listings.
My favourite motor racing podcast. Gone through the first 50 so far. Johnny O Connell trying to run over Dario Franchitti, jeez....

Marshall Pruett is another good one. Some great interviews from Indycar and US sportscar.

I had no real plans to listen prior to reading your review. It really is excellent.

Despite being a household name, as we did not have social media back then, it is amazing how little we actually knew about a driver if they were not at the front every weekend.

So it was great to have him fill in the gaps in such an honest and open way.
Derek's was a great one, some real highs and lows.

Schumacher's team mate made me laughlaugh
"Hit him, HIT HIM!" laugh

Alex Wurz this week...


..admittedly it didn't particularly excite nor did I recall Wurz having an F1 career to be excited about but my goodness the podcast's nearly 100mins in length! WTF! I'm guessing this is why there's been no response yet from PHers.

TBH I wouldn't mind if it went for 3 hours! Amazing interview. Unputdownable or whatever the podcast equivalent is.

I listened to the first one (Lewis H) whilst decorating a bedroom. Long story short these podcasts have now fuelled my working through the entire house with a paintbrush and roller, laid a floor downstairs and fitted a new bog smile

These combined with the Netflix show give a really great new level of insight - I'm a big fan.

Wurz was very engaging, his story of dealing with Ron Dennis was quite enlightening. He's a clever guy and I quite enjoyed it. He was driving when I was getting into F1 and I admired him for racing in F1 because he was tall, and as a 10 year old I wanted to race but I thought I couldn't because I was tall. Turned out I couldn't race because I was poor, but I always liked the guy.

And yeah, it's longer than the others but I think it sort of suits it because some of the previous chats seem to skirt through a lot. Like the Brawn GP I think could've been longer.

Didn’t think much of the Todt one. He needed to ask more searching questions than he did.

Not a Beyond The Grid Podcast but very much worth watching.

Seems to be lacking any sense of self awareness, one of the least enjoyable interviews in the last year.

I found the opposite, enthusiastic, honest and incredibly passionate about the sport.

I'm somewhere in between I think. I enjoyed it a lot and PM definitely has infectious enthusiasm but even for a racing driver, the arrogance level was pretty high!

Same, like him or not the Lotus situation especially must've been a pretty stty environment to have to go racing in for all involved. Maldonado is always going to be one of those nearly drivers for me, he had a lot of the right ingredients to be really good but just never put them all together consistently so as a result is always nearly a really good F1 driver.

he presents with a distinct lack of awareness of his own shortcomings, which sums up his racing!

Roll with it, cut him a little slack and its an enjoyable listen.

Enjoyed the Alex Albon one, very honest and down to earth. Impressive rise through the ranks considering where he was in 2012.
