In each episode, Hannah and Emma discuss the latest news in the world of F1 and IndyCar, including race results, driver performances, team updates and everything in between. They are proud fangirls and are here to help you get up to speed (get it?) with the series'. Expect some pop culture references, history lessons, mentions of other forms of motorsport, and the personal opinions of a couple of girls just talking track.
A Smooooooth Operation in Singapore
vor 3 Tagen
58:35Is Emma delusional or is she the real curse in F1 this season? We still don’t know, but we can confidently say that Singapore has been one of the most exciting races of the 2023 season so far. From quali to the last lap, we were all on the edge of our seats. No Red Bull on the podium…we’re still stunned. We saw some fantastic racing and some heartbreaking ends and maybe, just maybe, we’re seeing a new number 1 driver at Ferrari? We are not in any position to try and guess what the future has in store for Red Bull Racing and AlphaTauri, but of course we talk about it anyway, along with Suzuka Track Stats and the painful history that’s important to discuss but even more important to learn from.
ICYMI: Sliding Around in Laguna Seca (BONUS EPISODE)
47:29The 2023 IndyCar season comes to an end, but of course they saved the most chaotic race for last and we are here to recap it all (or at least we try to..there was a lot that happened) A lot of drivers struggled on the resurfaced track which of course led to yet another unpredictable race. We are still waiting to hear about a handful of teams and their driver line up for 2024 and until then, remember to be nice on social media because these drivers don’t deserve hate. But if you must go online, we encourage you to scroll through Arrow McLaren’s page because with Lil Dave joining the team, you know we’ll be getting some good content. Thank you to everyone who has joined us this Indy season and a special thank you to everyone who has helped us learn all about this sport. And don’t worry, this is not the last of In Case You Missed Indy, we’re still waiting on Hannah’s WAGment.

37:12This whole episode is sponsored by: Delusion! From putting drivers in The Hunger Games to trying to figure out what Checo is doing next year, we will admit to being all over the place. But at least we mean well, unlike whoever is chopping down those trees in Vegas for more race visibility (Sebastian Vettel would not be proud). Some Track Stats for Singapore, a WAG update that will have your jaws drop and did someone say...Charles in Eurovision..? We may not know how many teams will be on the grid in the future, but that’s a 2025 problem and all we care about right now is trying to figure out when Danny Ric will be back. (Deja Vu am I right?)
In Case You Missed Indy - Extended (BONUS EPISODE)
42:47Alex Palou is our 2023 IndyCar Champion and Emma still thinks he could give Max Verstappen a run for his money. Silly Season has not ended in this series with new driver rumours popping up every day, but don’t worry, Pato, king of the Indy spotlight, is staying at Arrow McLaren. As for our other Social Media Menace, Malukas may not have a 2024 seat yet but we’re still rooting for him. For the Formula Fans…do the names Christian Lundgaard, Callum Illot and Marcus Armstrong sound familiar? Maybe because you’ve seen them in the Formula 1 feeder series and they could easily become your new favs in Indy. There’s a lot of crossover and connection between current Indy drivers and the Formula series so take notes! And of course it would not be an In Case You Missed Indy if we didn’t recap their latest race in Portland.
Max v. The Monza Curse v. Nico Rosberg
47:00Great weekend for Tifosi and the Orange Army! Not so great for Oscar, Yuki or Alpine..but don’t worry, we figured out what happened to Este Bestie. Monza started with chaos and ended with Ferrari fans at the edge of their seats but man oh man was it nice to see Carlos on the podium in Italy. We still don’t know if the Monza Curse exists or if the Nico Rosberg Curse is simply stronger, but we do know that the drivers are besties and love a little competition, on and off the track. Alex Albon was driver of the day in our hearts and Furious Hot Takes is BACK! Make sure to submit yours and let us know your thoughts on today’s takes.

The (Flying) Dutch(man) Grand Prix
47:41The Flying Dutchman (Max, not the character from SpongeBob) claimed his ninth win this weekend at his home Grand Prix and hey, you know what, he deserves it! Can he claim a 10th next week or will the Monza Curse get in the way? We saw a few red flags, a new face on the track and a new driver on the podium. We’re all wishing Danny Ric a speedy recovery and we’re also wishing that people stop comparing drivers who aren’t anywhere in the same league. Some change ups at Indy because Indy Silly Season just keeps on giving. Finally, Track Stats is back as we prep for Monza and once again, don’t trust George with any forecasts.
The Final Countdown (To Zandvoort)
45:08Less than a week till we are OFFICIALLY back to talkin’ track but for now we’ve got a whole list of other things on the radar, starting with Motorsports at the Olympics...let’s not hold our breath quite yet. Instead, let's talk about inclusivity in Formula 1 and why don’t we see more drivers and teams speaking up or advocating for change? We’ve got a couple of Furious Hot Takes headed your way and a fun new segment Hannah likes to call The WAGment. She finally does a deep dive on all the queens in the paddock to get you up to speed and if you didn’t love Alex and Lily before, you will now. Track Stats is FINALLY back and of course, we can’t forget about IndyCar.

Contracts and Camp Rock
41:45IN CASE YOU MISSED INDY…Alex Palou is currently spearheading the 2023 Silly Season, RLL is alive and well, and the dislike for McLaren Management seems to not be confined to just Formula 1 Fans. We love our Canadian drivers at Track Talk because, well, we ARE Canadian and we sound it too, sorry, eh? We also love Mick Schumacher who is glowing and taking fashion advice from Sir Lewis Hamilton. Track Talk has also teamed up with Furious Motorsport to bring you a new segment…Furious Hot Takes (and we want you to submit your own hot takes - use the link below) The takes will just get hotter as the weeks go on! We talk about our fav 1989 babies, T Swift and Danny Ric and finally, the Camp Rock x F1 crossover you didn’t know you needed because we are nothing but chaotic and delulu over here at Track Talk. Happy Silly Season everyone.

Welcome to Silly Szn
48:53There’s no race but that doesn’t mean we can’t talk about the season so far and all of its highs and lows. Of course we’re all waiting for Danny Ric’s return to COTA and what the rest of Silly Season will bring, especially since there aren’t too many drivers at risk of losing their seats this year. Looking even further ahead, the most important questions are what are the F1 drivers going to wear to the Apex movie premiere and also, how excited is everyone for the 2024 season of F1 Academy? As usual, Emma talks about Lance, Hannah’s got some great ideas for the FIA and we introduce a new segment to the pod.. ICYMI - In Case You Missed Indy.

The Return of the Honey Badger
54:41Danny Ric is BACK and his opening credit scene isn’t everything Emma hoped and dreamed of but at least he finished the race unlike Alpine struggling with back to back double DNF's. We had such high hopes for them and Aston Martin but it seems that the teams to watch out for are McLaren and Mercedes. Oh and what about Ferrari, you ask? We’re disappointed, but not surprised and we have a totally unserious theory as to why Charles might be struggling. Red Bull broke records, Lando broke a trophy and we can’t forget about Track Stats with Han this week, but if you haven’t watched the 2021 Spa race, that is truly okay.
