The Flying Lap, Episode 44: Abu Dhabi GP Preview; Jaimie Alguersuari
November 11, 2011
Duration: 1:13:35
2011 was always going to be a big year in the life of Jaime Alguersuari - and he has stepped up to the plate with some superb drives into the points. The youngest driver ever to start a World Championship Grand Prix (Jaime was 19yrs, 125 days when he made his debut for Scuderia Toro Rosso in Hungary, 2009), Jaime has evolved into a consistent and fast racer. He qualified a brilliant seventh in China this year and then backed that up with a P6 in the changing conditions at Spa and then P10 in India. Jaime has also scored points in seven races so far this year, most recently in India, where he finished an excellent eighth. We spoke to Jaime at his home in Barcelona just prior to his departure for Abu Dhabi. He talks about his early days, the pressures that came with his F1 debut, his performances this year - and his love of music (specifically the music he mixes as one of Europe's most acclaimed house DJs). We are also joined live by the very experienced F1 composites engineer, Ian Thomson. With successful spells at Williams, Ferrari, Sauber and Super Aguri behind him, Ian is playing a major role in the new Moldex composites facility in India. Ian will be talking about the engineering styles and approaches of the various F1 teams and about India as a major new racing manufacturing base.

The Flying Lap, Episode 45: Abu Dhabi Debrief with David Tremayne
November 17, 2011
Duration: 1:10:21
Our guest in the studio this week is David Tremayne, the noted F1 author and journalist. "DJT" during the golden days of "Motoring News", David has been covering all aspects and disciplines of motor sport for nearly 40 years. His work has appeared in magazines, newspapers, race programmes and special editions throughout the world and his books include "Nigel Mansell" and "The Lost Generation" (which chronicled the too-brief lives of Roger Williamson, Tony Brise and Tom Pryce). A world authority on land speed records, David has also written the definitive work on Donald Campbell. With David, we will be dissecting the Abu Dhabi GP, the 2011 F1 season - and much more besides. Also joining us live will be the very talented young English driver, James Calado. Having finished runner-up in this year's GP3 series, James made his mark on the world stage last Sunday not only by winning the GP2 sprint race in Abu Dhabi but also Pirelli's Eu 15,000 bonus for the best result by a GP2 rookie.

The Flying Lap, Episode 89: Abu Dhabi GP Debrief
November 9, 2012
Duration: 1:12:08
No-one has a better understanding of Kimi Raikkonen's driving technique than Rob Wilson, the British-based coach who appears regularly on The Flying Lap. Rob has worked extensively with Kimi at various stages of his career and predicted months ago on the show that Kimi would win again before season's end. Join Rob Wilson live from Bruntingthorpe, therefore, as we celebrate Kimi's brilliant win in Abu Dhabi with a close-up view of what makes Kimi so sublimely special. Championship contenders Sebastian Vettel and Fernando Alonso also had big races on the Yas Marina circuit and to discuss those events - and more - we're delighted to welcome to the studio Nigel Roebuck, the pre-eminent F1 journalist, columnist and author. Nigel's encyclopaedic knowledge of Grand Prix racing and down-to-earth witticisms have left their mark on F1 fans around the globe for the past 41 years via numerous books, columns and feature articles. Today he is Editor-in-Chief of the world-famous motor racing monthly magazine, Motor Sport.
