The Flying Lap, Episode 61: Qantas Australian GP preview
March 14, 2012
Duration: 1:03:42
As the new F1 season bursts into life in Melbourne, we preview the race - and the season ahead - with a detailed look at the teams, cars and variables that may come into play. The very talented Craig Scarborough has in previous episodes talked us through the new cars and the developments we have seen during testing - but what will be the final, race specifications we'll see in Melbourne? Can Red Bull Racing begin where they left off in 2011? Or have the new regulations opened the door to Vodafone McLaren Mercedes, Scuderia Ferrari or perhaps to LotusF1 or Mercedes AMG Petronas? In addition, and in the first of regular updates we'll have throughout the year, WilliamsF1 Strategy Engineer, Mark Barnett, will be guiding us through the key, specific, elements of F1 racing on the Melbourne circuit.

The Flying Lap, Episode 62: QAGP debrief; Petronas Malaysian GP Preview
March 22, 2012
Duration: 1:14:58
The 2012 F1 season is now firmly under way, with two, demanding double-header race weekends stretching human resources and logistics to the limit. To this backdrop, we catch up with an ebullient Romain Grosjean while the memory of his stunning Albert Park qualifying lap is still fresh in his mind. What corners in Melbourne did he particularly enjoy? How does the LotusE20 feel in general? Romain spoke to us about these subjects and more on-line from Malaysia, where the temperatures and the humidity provide a whole new challenge; in addition, Williams F1's Strategy Engineer, Mark Barnett, talks us through the variables that will affect the race on the Sepang circuit in Malaysia; and, live from the SpeedTV studio in Charlotte, North Carolina, USA, Sean Kelly - statistician to many of the world's top TV networks and race series - will be taking your questions and providing some thought-provoking new graphics as he joins our analysis of Melbourne and our preview of Malaysia.
