#273 F1’s new qualifying rules disaster. We review the first day of the new F1 term and Channel 4’s coverage of the opening race. Sniff Petrol on Alonso’s contract, Bernie in a restaurant and a new F1 friendship. Plus Gareth performs “F1’s Back 2016”.
Gareth Jones On Speed - F1’s Back 2016
F1’s back 2016
Now we've got an American team
They did quite well as it came to pass
Looks like they’re here
To kick some Haas.
New qualifying was hard to explain
Looks like they won’t be doing it that way again.
Red Bull won’t use
Renault for their power
But we know that they do
They just badge it TAG Heuer.
Verstappen’s language turned the Melbourne air blue
Button went well, and Alonso flew
Lewis and Nico put on a rockin’ good show
But Nico had the get-up-and-go
At least Mercedes maintain the F1 status quo.
