The first half of the year ended in style, and all that happened in Hungary is discussed in the last podcast before the summer break.The race was made so great largely by the chaos of the first few laps, with Valtteri Bottas channelling his inner terminator and Lewis Hamilton being the only man on the grid for the restart after a mishap on his part. Such chaos is what the PF1 team look at first. The pair then turn their attention to the fight for the win that followed. Esteban Ocon prevailed thanks to a perfect performance, while Fernando Alonso played a big part too with the stunning manner in which he held off Hamilton. Has the Frenchman restored his reputation as one of the best young guns around, and being a team player, is the Spaniard better than ever?Alonso wasn't the only older head to impress in Budapest with Sebastian Vettel crossing the line in P2 after an excellent drive. Disqualification may take away the result, but it takes nothing away from his performance, and Michelle and Finley couldn't be happier to see him thrive. They agree though that in a day full of feel-good stories, perhaps the biggest of them came further down the grid, with Williams scoring their first double-points finish since 2018 and their first points at all since 2019. How big a result was that for them, and how great was George Russell's emotional reaction to it?To round off the episode, the bigger picture is looked at, with the state of the title fight between Hamilton and Max Verstappen heading into the second half of the year being discussed.Twitter: @Planet_F1Facebook: Planet F1 Learn more about your ad choices.

It took less than a lap for the British Grand Prix to produce one of the biggest talking points of the season, and plenty more followed.The race at Silverstone started with a bang as Max Verstappen went crashing out of the race after colliding with Lewis Hamilton, and that incident is the first thing that the PF1 team discuss. Did Hamilton deserve his penalty? Should he have had a harsher one? Or was it a racing incident?Regardless, it was an excellent drive from Hamilton from that point onwards, and one that well and truly brought the title fight to life again. In fact, Finley and henry think it may have been one of his best races of the season. After paying tribute to that performance, the pair then move on to an arguably even more impressive one from the Ferrari of Charles Leclerc, who so nearly won in a car that isn't anywhere near the fastest on the grid. The drive reminded us all of just how good he is, and made the battle with McLaren very interesting indeed.The Monegasque may well have been the driver of the weekend, but Fernando Alonso could stake a strong claim for that title himself after a stunning sprint qualifying and a very solid race. How good is he at the age of 39? Judging by how he did at Silverstone, as good as ever.Sebastian Vettel spun fighting his old foe early on and thus ruined his race, but he deserves plenty of plaudits for his off-track display as he kindly stayed behind after the race to help clean up. On a day when things got perhaps a bit too heated in the world of Formula 1, it was the sort of feel-good story that the sport needed.Twitter: @Planet_F1Facebook: Planet F1 Learn more about your ad choices.

Formula 1 was back for the second of a double-header at the Red Bull Ring, as Max Verstappen ran rampant again in front of a passionate crowd draped in the orange of the Dutchman's home nation.Henry is joined once again by Charlotte Lines and the PF1 team applaud the continuing heroics of McLaren's Lando Norris, after the young Briton was praised by the seven-time World Champion, no less.Lewis Hamilton has signed a new contract to stay at Mercedes, leaving just one seat open at the Silver Arrows for next season. George Russell came agonisingly close to getting his first points for Williams - again - and the hosts ask the question about whether Russell knows more about his future than he lets on...Penalties were the order of the day in Austria, and the team dissect just how busy the Stewards will have been in Austria - and whether or not they were right to dish out as many punishments as they did, with some decisions much more justifiable than others.There's a brief look ahead to what will be a new-look race weekend at Silverstone, and Henry and Charlotte feel the Formula 1 paddock has earned a well-deserved rest after three gruelling weekends on the bounce.Twitter: @Planet_F1Facebook: Planet F1Instagram: @planetf1com Learn more about your ad choices.

Formula 1 returned to the Red Bull Ring for the first of two races in Spielberg, and the latest episode of Torquing Point dives straight into Sunday's action.It was Max Verstappen's most dominant performance of the season as he took his third win in four races, which left Mercedes scratching their heads as to how they can claw back the gap Red Bull have created at the front.Henry is joined by Charlotte Lines and the pair discuss just where Mercedes go from here, and just how much they believe Toto Wolff when he says the team won't be bringing any more upgrades to their car this season.The performances of Lando Norris, Carlos Sainz and Charles Leclerc are all in the spotlight - as well as the misfortunes of Daniel Ricciardo and the agony of George Russell being denied a fantastic chance of earning his long-awaited first points for Williams.The two Haas drivers were at it again and the PF1 team talk about Guenther Steiner's unusual present to one of his drivers - which we wouldn't know whether or not it was a nice gesture or simply insulting.After a strong race in France, is Fernando Alonso back to his best? Henry and Charlotte discuss the two-time World Champion's fortunes and all the latest gossip from the paddock, with a brief look ahead to next weekend's race.Twitter: @Planet_F1Facebook: Planet F1 Learn more about your ad choices.

A real anomaly is discussed in the latest episode of Torquing Point; an absolute thriller of a French Grand Prix.There are a number of things that made it so good, but the main one was the titanic battle at the front between Mercedes and Red Bull.In a reverse of Barcelona, it was Max Verstappen's team that won the race thanks to a two-stop strategy this time around, but the Dutchman still had a lot of work to do. He drove a near-perfect race, as did Lewis Hamilton, and Finley and Henery applaud them both. The fight for the win was made all the more interesting by the fact that Sergio Perez and Valtteri Bottas got involved? just how important is the Mexican to Red Bull, and why oh why didn't Mercedes listen to the Finn? Behind the top four, McLaren were the winners of the day with Lando Norris and Daniel Ricciardo in P5 and P6. The PF1 team discuss how strong a lineup that is when firing, and wonder where the fight for P3 in the standings will go from here after a terrible day for Ferrari. Coming home just behind the McLaren pair was Pierre Gasly, who was once again one of the most impressive drivers of the weekend. Given how good he looks and the fact that Esetabn Ocon was firmly second best to Fernando Alonso, have Alpine been a bit rash with their decision to give their man a new three-year deal?The Aston Martin drivers are then looked at, with both doing excellently to secure a double-points finish. Is Sebastian Vettel back? And does Lance Stroll get the credit he deserves?Twitter: @Planet_F1Facebook: Planet F1 Learn more about your ad choices. Visit
As far as races go, few require more discussion than those that take place in Baku, and that was the case again this year.As usual, Finley and Henry start off the latest episode of Torquing Point by taking a look at the fight at the front between Red Bull and Mercedes. For the first time this year, Sergio Perez got himself right in the mix of it, and while it was issues for his rivals that handed him the win, he drove well enough to deserve it, holding his own against Lewis Hamilton all day. Given how good he looked, you can't help but wonder: is this the start of his career as a top driver who can regularly challenge for victories? As for Hamilton and Max Verstappen, they both ended up leaving Baku with zero points added to their tally, but which of them does the 0-0 draw benefit more in the context of the title fight, and who will be rueing their ultimately poor result more? One thing's for sure, neither will feel quite as bad as Valtteri Bottas after his disaster of a weekend.Hamilton's and Verstappen's losses were Sebastian Vettel's and Pierre Gasly's gains as they both claimed their first podiums of the season with excellent performances. Looking at his last two races, it's hard not to think that the old Vettel is back, and looking at his last two years as a whole, it's hard not to wish that Gasly could be given a top seat already. Vettel wasn't the only older head to impress in the City of Wind as, not for the first time, Fernando Alonso also did so, thanks in large part to a stunning last few laps. The efforts of the Spaniard are applauded before the improved but less impressive display of another man who has impressed at the track in the past, Daniel Ricciardo, is discussed.The fortunes of Yuki Tsunoda and the clash between the Haas boys are also looked at, and the PF1 team then wrap things up by trying their very best to get excited about the next race, the French Grand Prix.Twitter: @Planet_F1Facebook: Planet F1 Learn more about your ad choices.
