    Great podcast but why is there no RSS feed for this? It would make life much easier if i could allow the technology do its stuff and get these podcasts automatically rather than downloading each episode from the website.

    ..a most enjoyable hour listening to your musings, chaps….personally, I think all teams should be compelled to use a young driver four or five times a year on a Friday morning, then it’s the same for everyone….I also think Mercedes should ‘persuade’ Schuey to retire at the end of the season, and presumably take on Di Resta or Hulkenberg…..looking forward to the imminent new edition of MS…..wonderful entertainment as usual…thanks to you all…

    Makes more sense to test after the race weekend if you ask me. The track is cleaned and rubbered up, teams have a race of data to compare the test results to and there’s no fear of testing being used to prepare for the race. You can also test out fixes for problems discovered in the race.

    How about the top five in constructors being allowed to run a third car (not counting for constructors points) for a driver with less than ten races experience, in the first three races of the following season? And in addition, allowing a days testing after each race (but no other in season testing), and only using the same basis for the drivers?

    Great podcast!

    As for Vettels alleged lack of “overtaking skill”, what often seems to be ignored in analyses is that the Red Bull doesn’t have a good top speed, just as it was in 2010.

    It is the perfect car for getting pole and then leading from the front, when you can properly use the cornering strength. But with about 10 kph missing on the straights compared to the Mercedes, McLarens and Ferraris, you will always have a difficult time trying to overtake, even with the new DRS…

    I wonder if the World Sportscar Championship will become a place for all these F1 “reserve” drivers to get noticed again – as Schumacher, Frentzen, Brundle etc once did.

    Still smiling at “get real”…

    I’m sure you’ve heard it before – make a digital version of your wonderful mag, i will sign up today…….

    Your podcast certainly made my slow train trip this morning a great deal more bearable. I smile when they say Clark was never a great “racer” but I saw him dice with Stewart for nearly the whole Tasman Series race at Lakeside in 1967 – which he won – and he had a great dice with Chris Amon’s Ferrari at Sandown a year later. What doesn’t make sense is how Webber beat Vettel home by over 30 seconds in Germany. Vettel took Mark’s settings but still couldn’t make the car work for him some how, intriguing.

    Another great podcast.

    Good news about the World Sportscar Championship, real racing at last. I hope this means that Sebastien Loeb will now leave rallying behind and pursue a full time drive in series, another driver I’d love to see in one of the LMP1 cars would be Kimi. Him and Seb going head to head with the likes of McNish, Rockenfeller, Minassian and Pagenaud at Le Mans would make nearly any F1 race look very tame.

    Please, please put an RSS feed on this podcast. That way you’ll get more people to listen regularly. Increasing popularity and even your subscription base! It also would mean that I can listen on the internet radio while doing odd jobs round the house.

    Please PLEASE, I beg you! Please don’t limit the Murray Walker podcast to the usual hour, it needs to be longer!!

    have yet to listen to this one but I’m sure it will be as great as the others

    Can’t believe you guys took two years to discover Truth in 24! Where have you been hiding?
    It was funded by Audi USA & they did offer it to Audi Germany but the price was too high for them to take it up. It is a true marketing opportunity missed by Audi though, even considering how many spectators attend Le Mans each year.
    If you look very hard & have someone to shop for you in the US it is available as a free HD DL from i tunes or on a DVD for $8 from the Audi Collection
