The Flying Lap, Episode 31: German GP Debrief, 2014 Regulations
Duration: 1:23:50
Peter discusses the sensational German GP with the inimitable Craig Scarborough and looks ahead to this weekend's Hungarian GP. Can Lewis Hamilton and McLaren-Mercedes win again? Will Red Bull Racing bounce back? Can Ferrari win another? Peter and Craig also examine the new 2014 F1 technical regulations - both chassis and engines. Are they all step forwards? And what will the new cars look like? All this and more on Episode 31.

The Flying Lap, Episode 79: Santander German GP Preview
Duration: 1:02:07
Nothing stays still in F1, particularly when a young team is finding its character and building its future . And so it is with Caterham F1. Hopes are high for Hockenheim as the team puts in more mileage with promising new aero updates on the CT01. Back in the UK, meanwhile, Caterham are now in the process of switching base from Hingham, Norfolk, to the Leafield Technical Centre in Oxfordshire. We'll be talking about all this and more with Caterham F1's Heikki Kovalainen as he joins us live from Germany in preparation for the season's third double-header race sequence. It was in 2008 that Heikki finished fifth in Germany and then won in Hungary for Vodafone McLaren-Mercedes. His challenges this year are different but in many ways every bit as enthralling. Travel schedules permitting - Caterham's aero test this week was moved at the last minute from Kemble in the UK to France due to weather conditions - we also hope to spend some time with John Iley, the former Jordan/Renault/Ferrari/McLaren aerodynamicist who joined Caterham F1 early this year as Performance Director.

The Flying Lap, Episode 80: German GP Debrief; Hungarian GP Preview
Duration: 1:11:13
In our last show before the August summer shut-down, we look back at last Sunday's Santander German GP and ahead to this weekend's Hungarian GP. Craig Scarborough will be talking us through all the key technical developments on the leading cars and in the studio Rob Wilson will be looking at the drivers in detail and at the way the season is panning-out. Are Ferrari and Fernando Alonso now set fair for the 2012 World Championship? Can McLaren rebound with a win in Hungary? And where is the prodigious speed shown by Red Bull in Valencia? We'll be talking about all this and more with two of the best-informed people in the F1 business.
