F1 NATION: Who will cope with the heat of the Singapore pressure cooker?

F1 Nation

After two years off the calendar, the Singapore Grand Prix is back this weekend as Formula 1 returns to the Marina Bay Circuit for the first time since 2019.

And on this week's F1 Nation podcast, Tom Clarkson, Natalie Pinkham and Damon Hill are on hand to explain the unique challenges of F1’s original night race, when the drivers will be forced to cope with hot and humid conditions, a tight track, and frustration in the cockpit if they are to come out on top.

It's a circuit where Max Verstappen has never won – but he could seal his second World Championship title if he takes victory this time out, and other results go his way.

Meanwhile, British Touring Car champ Rickard Rydell joins the pod to chat all things F1 – including the junior category rookie who could be Sweden’s next F1 star, what he thinks of the Colton Herta super licence situation, and what Audi joining Formula 1 in 2026 means for the health of the sport.

The gang also dissect all the big news stories from the F1 world, including all the latest moves in the driver market – and make a few predictions for what the race weekend in Singapore might hold for some of the grid’s most experienced chargers. And of course, a couple of lucky listeners get to put their questions to our very own 1996 World Champion in ‘Ask Damon’.
