Episode 276 – Did Anyone Stay Awake To The End?
Play • 1 hr 55 min

After a unique season, the likes of which we’ve never seen before and hopefully we’ll never see again. 2020 finished for Formula 1 with a bit of a parade round the Yas Marna Circuit in Abu Dhabi. So how do we review this? We kind of gloss over it and instead we’re joined on the show this week by Sean Kelly (@virtualstatman) to go through the grid and look at some of the performances in this massively compressed year of 17 races in just over 7 months!

Sean as always throws up a few facts and figures that you may have missed this season, including one of the most surprising ones ever about this year’s Ferrari results, and loads more as we look at the positives and negatives up and down the grid and we can already start looking forward to 2021 (just over 3 months to go until the new season starts!)

There’s all the usual stuff as well including a Who’s A Total Shunt that we didn’t expect to end the way it did.. And also check how you did on the Prediction League for this season. Even though there’s no F1 over the winter, you can still join our Discord server where you can sign up for our iRacing league as well as joining in with all the chat on there and you can keep in touch on Facebook & Twitter as always.

Don’t forget to put your thinking caps on for the Shunt Special over Christmas as well


As always, you can listen here or on Stitcher and iTunes and most other podcast apps too along with SpotifyAcast and TuneIn Radio on your smart speakers.

S3 E8: The end of Lotus, with Johnny Herbert
Johnny Herbert joins Bring Back V10s to revisit the final year of Lotus in 1994, when the team sadly bowed out of F1 without even scoring a point. Herbert, Glenn Freeman and Edd Straw go through Lotus's entire final season in great detail, from starting the year with a C-spec version of its 1992 car, with an ageing "dumbell" of an engine, which was finally replaced at the Italian Grand Prix - where Johnny famously qualified fourth. Johnny and Edd both offer their theories on where he could have finished that day at Monza, were it not for a heartbreaking punt from Eddie Irvine at the start. The following day Lotus went into administration. We also look at McLaren's attempts to sign Johnny at the start of 1994, how the team was affected by its own incidents on F1's horrific Imola weekend, and Johnny recounts in amazing detail what he encountered when he arrived at the scene of team-mate Pedro Lamy's terrifying airborne accident in testing at Silverstone shortly after the San Marino GP. He also explains why even the new Lotus 109 wasn't any fun to drive, and how Lotus's miserable season left him not even wanting to drive the car. Eventually Johnny was snapped up by Ligier and then Benetton, but he watched from afar as Lotus limped on without him, before it was bought by David Hunt, who had to shut the team down a month later.
