About WTF1 Podcast
Harry Benjamin and Callan O'Keefe are back for the last post-race Podcast of 2023 as the boys review the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix! In it, they ponder Ferrari's sketchy form, the star-making drive of Yuki Tsunoda as Callan gives the man his flowers, and ask whether Sergio Perez should have been hit with a time penalty for his pass on Lando Norris and the impact it had on that fight for second in the Championship!
It's another Hot Takes Wednesday on the WTF1 Podcast channel and Dre Harrison is joined by WTF1 Talent member and YouTuber Josh Marsh! On the show, we discuss whether Andretti deserves a seat more than Haas does, whether Max Verstappen's record-breaking season means F1 needs to work harder to have closer racing, and is Aston Martin forever doomed to mediocrity?
