Time On Track Ep. 3, Round 2: Saudi Arabia

Welcome to episode 3 of Time On Track, covering round 2 of the Formula 1 season which took place at the Jeddah Corniche Circuit in Saudi Arabia this past weekend. In this episode, Ricardo and Blake return to discuss the ever evolving mid and backfield teams still hoping to make an impression, a pair of struggling Ferrari cars, a nearly broken Lando Norris, and much more. The race itself didn’t have much drama on its face, but some interesting storylines emerged, as well as confirmation that those Astons are indeed fast race cars. Additionally, we ponder if the Mercs are really that bad, and what kind of competition we might see emerge between the front running Red Bull drivers, Sergio Perez, and Max Verstappen.

On top of the action on track, there was also some drama surrounding the FIA this week, and their inability to correctly apply a penalty in time during the race, causing some confusion about the final podium spot after the race. Fortunately, they eventually got it right and Alonso was able to retain his third place finish, securing his 100th career podium in the process.


We’ll be back for coverage of round 3 of the season the first week of April, which is taking place at Albert Park in Australia on April 2nd. This is a shorter track which was just repaved last year, and now boasts a 4th DRS zone which is sure to bring a bit more spice to the race this year. Last year, the race saw DNFs by Verstappen and Sainz, leaving a clear victory for Leclerc, ahead of Perez and Russell. How will the Astons factor into this year’s race? Will they both finish? Join us after the race to discuss all this and more.

Let us know what storylines you’re paying attention to this year, and what teams you’re paying attention to the most. We welcome any feedback on the podcast as well, so don’t hesitate to reach out with any comments or suggestions. Until next week!
