Time on Track Podcast: Week 1, Bahrain

Welcome to episode 2 of Time on Track, a Worn & Wound podcast covering the current season of Formula 1 racing. This week, Blake and Ricardo discuss the results of the first race of the season in Bahrain, which took place last weekend, and look ahead to round 2 in Saudi Arabia taking place the weekend of March 17th. There was plenty to discuss this week, even setting aside the apparent Red Bull dominance right out of the gate, including an emerging battle between the Aston Martin, Ferrari, and Mercedes teams, including some heavily anticipated duels between old teammates Lewis Hamilton and Fernando Alonso. Plus, given the unique surface of the Bahrain circuit, things might not be so cut and dry moving ahead with the season. We chat about all this and more in episode 2 below.

We’ll be back next week to discuss the race at Jeddah Corniche circuit in Saudi Arabia, a fast street circuit that’s undergone some minor changes for just its third race. How will the lower deg surface play into the hands of the top tier teams teams? Can Bottas sneak another top 10 finish? Are Williams a legit mid field contender? Is the W14 really that bad afterall? Hopefully get answers to these and more of our questions in week 2!

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!
