F1 Nation podcast: Who’s favourite to win the title after the Qatar GP?
Eight points. That's the margin in this ever ebbing-and-flowing Formula 1 title fight after Lewis Hamilton won over Max Verstappen in Qatar. In this week's F1 Nation podcast, the gang pick the bones out of the first ever Grand Prix at the Losail International Circuit.
Mathematically, Verstappen could land the knock-out punch in this astonishing title fight at the Saudi Arabian GP in Jeddah, but as Tom Clarkson and Damon Hill explore, it looks more likely that we’re heading for a breathless, brilliant final-race showdown.
The pair analyse how each title challenger got the most out of the Qatar GP, how Verstappen can win the title in Saudi Arabia, and whether he or Hamilton will be feeling more confident heading into the final two races.
Elsewhere, what was the secret to Fernando Alonso’s joyous return to the podium, and have Ferrari struck the decisive blow in their P3 fight with McLaren? Tom and Damon are joined by MBC Action F1 TV presenter and host of the official Saudi Grand Prix podcast, Sabine Sassine, who tells us why there’s no room for any mistakes at the unforgiving Jeddah Corniche Circuit, especially if a December rain shower blows by.
