The Flying Lap, Episode 33: Belgian GP Preview; McLaren, Daniel Ricciardo & @virtualstatman
August 23, 2011
Duration: 1:20:00
With back-to-back wins for Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button in Germany and Hungary, Vodafone McLaren Mercedes went into the August break on a high. Can the two British stars continue the momentum as the F1 world re-ignites at the Belgian GP at Spa? McLaren Racing's MD, Jonathan Neale, joins us live from the McLaren Technology Centre, in Woking, England, to talk us through the team's preparation for Spa and their chances of winning still more races in this 19-round championship. And, two days after his brace of podium finishes at Silverstone WSR - and only four before he returns to F1 to race for HRT at Spa - F1's most talked-about star of the future, Daniel Ricciardo, joins us live to talk about his meteoric career, his hopes and his goals. F1's favourite stats man, Sean Kelly, also returns to The Flying Lap to look ahead at the Belgian GP. Any questions about this great circuit and equally famous race? Sean will be with us to share his unique blend of knowledge and raw passion.

The Flying Lap, Episode 34: Belgian GP Debrief with Adrian Sutil
September 2, 2011
Duration: 1:03:12
A classic Belgian GP resulted in yet another one-two finish for Red Bull Racing - the team's tenth. This, though, was a race with a difference. A small window of dry-weather running on Saturday placed a premium on Pirelli tyre management on Sunday; there were eight lead changes in the first 18 laps. Vodafone McLaren Mercedes' Jenson Button carved his way through the field from 13th to the podium; Michael Schumacher, celebrating the 20th anniversary in F1, became the sixth successive driver to score points after being eliminated in Q1; and Force India's Adrian Sutil was in the points again, this time climbing from 15th to an excellent seventh. Live from Switzerland, Adrian joins us to talk about this amazing race - the usual first-corner dramatics, the tyre situation, his battles with Schumacher and Lotus Renault's Vitaly Petrov - and about his love for this most historic of F1 venues.

August 30, 2012

After a much-needed summer break, the F1 season bursts into life this weekend at one of the greatest races of them all - the Belgian GP at Spa. Our resident Technical Expert, Craig Scarborough, will be joining us live in the London studio to examine all the latest updates we can expect to see on the cars at this fast and demanding circuit - and joining us live on line will be Sahara Force India's Third Driver, the very talented Jules Bianchi. Fresh from a sensational World Series by Renault win at Silverstone last Sunday, Jules will be bringing us up to date with all aspects of his diverse 2012 season. WilliamsF1's Strategy Engineer, Mark Barnett, completes our Belgian GP preview line-up - aside, that is, from our usual overload of live questions, comments and original ideas from F1 fans around the world.

The Flying Lap, Episode 82: Belgian GP Debrief; Italian GP Preview
September 4, 2012
Duration: 1:07:17
There's lots to talk about in Episode 82 of The Flying Lap as we look back at a sensational Shell Belgian GP and ahead to another of the great races - to the Italian Grand Prix at Monza this weekend. To take your questions live - and to delve further into the heart of the World Championship as it is poised, pre-Monza - we welcome back to The Flying Lap the Director of Motorsport for Pirelli, Paul Hembery. As Pirelli prepares for it's all-important home race, Paul joins us live from the company headquarters (in Milan, Italy) - and fresh from McLaren's superb one-stop win at Spa. Our resident driver coach, Rob Wilson, will also be on-line from the Bruntingthorpe Proving Ground in England, and will no doubt have plenty to say about that first corner accident at Spa, and we'll have all our usual race preview features, including the HiltonHonors guide to Monza with Spa winner, Jenson Button, and a look at the strategic side of the Italian GP with WilliamsF1's Mark Barnett.
