It's been a hard slog through the long cold winter but Rod and Zach are back like an evolutionary missing link to bring you all the news and insights from testing ahead of the season 2016 launch in Australia.

We couldn't possibly cover all of the testing action by ourselves so we called in some favours and asked Fernando and Sergio from the F1 Podcast Brasil to lend a hand.

64. 2015 season review (with Box of Neutrals)

It's a Christmas extravaganza as Rod and Zach join the Box of Neutrals crew for a look at all things weird and wonderful in the 2015 Formula One Season. As if that wasn't enough there's also a taste of what happened when we joined Chris and Luke from the Parc Ferme Podcast for their epic trivia session, and we reveal who took brought home the christmas bacon in the prediction and fantasy leagues.

From the squad at Superlicense HQ, we hope you have a great Christmas and Happy New Year!

51. Austrian GP (You were recording, right Rod?)

You'd have to be an A-grade amateur to get through an entire podcast only to realise that you weren't recording, right? Heh-heh. 

Yeah, so let's just say we got better with age and call the first attempt a rehearsal. This week we cover the action-packed Austrian Grand Prix, canvas all the news from the paddock and beyond, and turning a negative into a positive this will be the first episode not to feature a SuperQuiz (mostly because after the first time through Rod knew all the answers!). #Pioneers

Best of all we caught up with Formula E commentator Jack Nicholls ahead of the season finale double-header at Battersea Park. For the full "F1" Chat with Jack check out our website and hear his true thoughts about Fan Boost, what car he drives and whether Michelin are legit about returning to Formula One.

What a race! Glamour, controversy, you couldn't have asked for more and Rod and Zach are here to dive into all of it. Do you think refuelling is a good idea? Perhaps a refuelling SuperQuiz will help you make up your mind, and stay tuned after the show for a special "After Dark" bonus section.

46. Chinese GP (It's good to know the rules)

Once again Rod and Zach bring you all the F1 action that's fit to print and some that isn't fit for anything truth be told. We catch up on some Formula 1 news, a very successful designer inspires a SuperQuiz and listeners are treated to the triumphant return of a fan-favourite segment... F1 Dreams.

45. Malaysia GP (Fan boost is charity)

Malaysiyeah! Your old pals Rod and Zach run you through the race that shook up Formula 1 and gave us all hope for an end to Mercedes dominance. We milk Giedo Van Der Garde for the last time (I promise) preview the China Grand Prix and mention House of Cards, Friends, sexy pool photos and plenty of other nonsense.

We also streamed this episode live as a bit of a test, if you are desperate to listen to us making this sausage we'll tweet out the day/time/link but for the foreseeable future it'll be early morning Australia time, evening UK time.

44. Australian GP (No money, no honey)

Hear all about Rod and Zach's "eventful" grand prix weekends, we unravel the Giedo van der Garde vs Sauber court case that threatened to bring Formula 1 to it's knees (and learned a thing or two about the team in the Super-Sauber-Quiz). All that and a bumper crop of predictions in the season opener of the Superlicense F1 Podcast.

40. Brazil GP (A bit of horse-arsery)

Oh man, we've reached episode 40 which explains those aches and pains!

This week we'll deconstruct the Brazilian GP, Rod tests Zach's knowledge of championships this went down to the wire, F1 dreams gets a run and we use up all the of the champagne.

39. Austin GP (BBQ Happy Hour)

Yeeeehaw! Well that podcast title kind of writes itself doesn't it. Things get a bit schizophrenic this week we manage to pull it together to talk about the Austin Grand Prix, there's an unexplained horse race in there somewhere, references to obscure podcasts that you'll either love or hate (we hope you'll love it) and we caught up with one of the most dapper men in F1, the one and only Mr Trent Price.

38. Russian GP (And other adjacent jokes)

in Soviet Russia podcast listens to you.... WELCOME back to the Superlicense F1 Podcast after a slight delay. With a return to "normal" we discuss F1 news headlines from the last three weeks or so, recap the race and this week's quiz tests what you know about F1 slang terms.

It's a little longer due to F1 Dreams, and just generally we felt we owed a little more to the community so lean back or set that treadmill to "extreme" and enjoy!

37. Japanese GP (#ForzaJules)

With Jules Bianchi in our hearts, Rod and Zach discuss a very difficult week for F1 in a slightly different incarnation of the Superlicense F1 Podcast.

While we await (hopefully positive) news regarding Jules following his horrific crash, we discuss the race, preview the Russian Grand Prix in Sochi and feature a chat with F1 journalist Kate Walker via dodgy hotel WiFi (starts around the 31 min mark and seriously, the audio quality starts off poor then gets much better). Hopefully it'll get you back in the mood for Formula One because Sochi will be here before you know it.

36. Singapore GP (Handy on a Luge)

Zach and Rod make a triumphant return from their week in Singapore to rip through all the news, happenings and good vibes from the Singapore Grand Prix. It wouldn't be an episode of Superlicense if it didn't go far longer than necessary, but to be fair we also touched on the inaugural Formula E race, a listener F1 dream and much more.

35. Italian GP (Monza is a Flat Circle)

M-M-M-M-Monza! I'm pretty sure if there's one place in the entire world that a pretty lady could get away with actual murder it's the Italian GP. Rod and Zach discuss the race, breakdown all the news that fit to print, Zach excels in the "Were They Teammates?" SuperQuiz and we reference far too many non-F1 things to mention here.

34. Belgian GP (Orange is the new JEV)

Well, the summer break is well and truly over and if you thought some time away was going to allow the drivers to cool off you've got another thing coming my friend! We decompress the race for probably far too long, unleash the Superlicense Predictions Podium, Zach slaps Rod with a Spa Francorchamps quiz and there's many references to Bane for some reason. Enjoy!

33. Summer Break (Groin Roids)

We are smack-bang in the middle of the summer break, so it must have been a short show this week, right? Nope. I'm blaming the very fact that we had no race for letting us get so wildly off track. We still manage to cover F1 news, Formula E news, offer up some of the internet's best F1 dreams and we launch our exclusive interview with Nathan from Beer Mogul games creator of Formula Legend, and if you haven't heard of it... you have now.

All that and a little bit more in this week's Summer Break episode of the Superlicense F1 Podcast.

32. Hungarian GP (Halt and Fall Before it Exists)

Ahhhhhhhhhh, it's the last race before the summer break - we rip into the controversial Hungarian Grand Prix, Zach gives us a quiz about food and food adjacent food-like things, we finally get to break some news on the podcast (although, with a 24 hour delay between recording and getting the episode edited and released it's not new anymore... shhhhh, you never heard anything) and we sizzle our Summer Break Episode!

SPRING BREAAAAKKKK, yeah!
