F1 NATION: Allan McNish joins the gang to explain how Perez reigned in the rain in Monaco – and much more
Allan McNish joins F1 Nation this week to unpack the 2022 Monaco Grand Prix, in which Sergio Perez took his maiden win in the Principality, and his first victory of the season.
Ex-Toyota F1 driver McNish – a veteran endurance racer with three Le Mans 24 Hours wins under his belt and many, many more successes to boot – joined F1 TV as part of the Monaco GP commentary team. So who better to join F1 Nation and help pick the major stories of the weekend?
McNish tells Tom Clarkson and Natalie Pinkham about his own Monaco experiences, weighs up the FIA's calls amid the rain in Monte Carlo and explains how Charles Leclerc lost out on Monaco victory – and how Perez made history as Red Bull turned things around.
We also grab a quick word with race-winner Perez after his dive into the Red Bull pool. "It's a mess, but it's worth it," he says, before Team Principal Christian Horner weighs in too...
Max Verstappen's mother, ex-karter Sophie Kumpen, also joins the podcast to talk about the family's racing DNA and her World Championship-winning son – notably, the pride she feels watching him compete every weekend.
We also have Williams' Alex Albon talking about his race – which ended in a DNF – while ex-McLaren boss Eric Boullier makes a cameo to talk about the rainy race on Sunday.
