96: George Russell on racing close friends, getting Toto Wolff’s attention and more
Play • 1 hr 8 mins
This week we welcome one of the bright young stars of Formula 1 to the show: Williams driver George Russell. The British racer has been making waves this season, dragging his car far higher up the grid than many thought possible, and giving us a glimpse of the talent that made Mercedes sign him as a young driver. So listen in for some great stories as he describes the unusual way he approached Silver Arrows boss Toto Wolff, how Alex Albon’s family used to cook him dinner, why he’s flattered by comparisons to Williams greats, and much more…

S3 E2: Nurburgring 1995 - Schumacher stuns Alesi
Michael Schumacher put in one of his greatest F1 drives on home soil in 1995, snatching victory from Jean Alesi's Ferrari in the closing stages after bringing down a gap that at one stage was more than 40 seconds. Edd Straw and Matt Beer join Glenn Freeman to look back at all the stories going on in F1 back in late-'95: starting with a team orders debate at Williams, how Eddie Jordan sold Eddie Irvine to Ferrari and made himself some money in the process, why Alain Prost tested for McLaren around this time, why Tyrrell plucked Gabriele Tarquini from touring cars to make a one-off final F1 appearance, how Jacques Villeneuve's imminent arrival from Indycar with Williams was being perceived after Michael Andretti's McLaren disaster in 1993, why Jean Alesi and Gerhard Berger both fell out with Ferrari management, how good the 1995 Williams really was (and how well Nigel Mansell could have done with it). Then getting into the race we look at how Alesi got himself into such a huge lead, Schumacher's bizarre strategy, the incidents both had with Hill during the race, and the significance of Hill's crash amid the personal battles he was trying to deal with during a difficult season. And of course we finish up by looking at how Schumacher hunted Alesi down, and if the Ferrari driver could have done anything to prevent the Benetton snatching the win in the closing laps.
