Andrew Benson and Jolyon Palmer join Jack to look ahead to the race in Jeddah. They ask whether the Red Bulls really are unbeatable this season after their one-two in Bahrain. And with Ferrari and Mercedes already struggling this season, will Aston Martin prove to be the second-best team in F1? Plus we find out if Jolyon has ever pulled a “sickie” to avoid media commitments when he was a driver.
All episodes of Spygate available right now on BBC Sounds. In 2007 an improbable, low-fi crime nearly brought the high octane world of Formula One to its knees. Narrated by Pete Tong, Spygate draws in some of the most powerful men in the sports history and pits iconic teams McLaren and Ferrari against each other, all set against the backdrop of Lewis Hamilton’s record-breaking debut and his ferocious rivalry with Fernando Alonso. Buckle up - this season is one hell of a ride.
