Inside Line F-1: P3 is the new ‘Best of rest’ position


F1 2020 has been a roller coaster and P3 is the new & coveted ‘best of the rest’ position – in the race & in the championships. Did you know that before the 2020 Portuguese Grand Prix, 6 different drivers finished in P3 in the last 6 races?

Mercedes & Lewis Hamilton are on course to clinch their respective titles for yet another season. But worry not, it’s the battle for P3 that will keep us entertained in the remaining races of the 2020 Formula 1 season. And it’s not just the battle for P3 in the Drivers’ and Constructors’ Championship, it’s also in the races. Did you know that 6 different drivers have finished in P3 in the last 6 races (stat valid for before the 2020 Portuguese Grand Prix)? Also, 8 different drivers have finished in P3 in the 11 races held yet.

In this week’s episode of the Inside Line F1 Podcast, Mithila and Kunal discuss the new ‘best of rest’ position in Formula 1 – P3. They also talk about the probable calendar for the 2021 Formula 1 season, the rumours in the driver market or the ‘silly season’ and the prize money earned by the teams in 2019.

Should Sebastian Vettel be upset that Red Bull Racing have overlooked him as a possible replacement for Alexander Albon? And finally, Esteban Ocon and George Russell to join Pascal Wehrlein in the list of Mercedes junior drivers who had a broken career in Formula 1? Tune in!
