Max Verstappen had to go hard to win his 59th GP of his career (Fun Fact: Every other member of Red Bull’s history also has 59 combined), at the Emilia-Romagna Grand Prix last week, but he had to earn it after a spirited fight with Lando Norris for McLaren.

Max was going so easy on his tyres at the back end of the split, he lost a 7 second lead in the last 20 laps of the race, leading to Norris being in the DRS zone of Max right at the end of the race. Is it the first sign that Red Bull are being caught?

There’s also dialogue on the state of the silly season after Carlos Sainz is still on the fence about signing with Audi, as well as Valterri Bottas being seen coming out of Williams garage citing “coffee” as the reason. So who may end up where in F1? Listen in to find out!

And finally, F1 has had to deny it’s going to America for a fourth race on the schedule, and instead made it clear they want to make moves in Asia, with Thailand set to join the calendar in 2027 and South Korea also potentially joining in the future. Is this the right move for the series and will European rounds suffer as a result?

All that and more on another episode of Motorsport101!
