Australian GP podcast: Is Leclerc already favorite for F1 title?


We ask if Charles Leclerc is now the big favorite for the Formula 1 World Championship in our Australian Grand Prix review episode of The Race F1 podcast.

Mark Hughes and Scott Mitchell join Edd Straw to explain how Leclerc and Ferrari dominated, and what went wrong for Max Verstappen and Red Bull.

There’s also a look at the de facto number two drivers, with Sergio Perez finishing second but Carlos Sainz having a disastrous weekend – culminating in his second lap exit.

Mercedes’ ongoing struggles and the unexpected revival of McLaren’s fortunes are also explained.

Fernando Alonso’s pace and misfortune is another talking point, as is Alex Albon’s first point for Williams.

And with Aston Martin returning home with no points and with the damage of four crashes to count the cost, we detail its horrible weekend.
