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.

Drive to Survive S3: Storylines We Would Love To See But May Not Get To
Netflix has made 'looking back' at the previous Formula 1 season very cool with it's F1-only show, Drive to Survive. 19th March is when Season 3 releases - a highly anticipated opening. Understandably, the current chatter is about the storylines Season 3 of Drive to Survive will showcase. In this episode of the *_Inside Line F1 Podcast_*, Soumil and Kunal are joined by FIA-accredited journalist Niharika Ghorpade. The trio discuss storylines they would love to see in Netflix's F1 documentary...but may not get to. Typically, Netflix will focus on driver-team rivalries, hero/zero moments and other politically correct events. But could the show focus on Ferrari's 'settlement' with the FIA around their power unit saga or how Mercedes rose to Ferrari's power unit challenge. Will the ever-honest and Netflix-star Guenther Steiner reveal the real reason behind signing Nikita Mazepin? We would also love to see how Red Bull Racing used their political clout to get Formula 1 to sign off an engine freeze from 2022. And of course, Ferrari's fair(?) treatment of Sebastian Vettel throughout the 2020 Formula 1 season. There are several such interesting & alternative events discussed in this week's episode that we would hope to see in Season 3 of Driver to Survive. Have a moment or two of your own that you'd like to see on the Netflix-F1 documentary? Write to us via the *_Inside Line F1 Podcast Facebook page_* and we will read out your views in the next episode.
