Lewis Hamilton

132. Mexican GP (One of the greatest car-drivers ever)

132. Mexican GP (One of the greatest car-drivers ever)

Is Lewis Hamilton the best of all time? The championship was decided in Mexico, so we talk all around it during our race recap, we rewind things for an old skool Hamilton quiz, and always one to leave them wanting more... Rod's accompanying the Mariachis all weekend leaves his voice wanting.

129. Russian GP (You've got to be in it to be in it)

129. Russian GP (You've got to be in it to be in it)

It's a good, old-fashioned sleep-deprived grumpcast this week as we look back at the most controversial race of the year. With team orders being the topic du jour, Rod and Zach also discuss the proposed qualifying changes, fixing the engine penalty system, we play "Kvyat or nyet" and unpack the hidden meaning of a 90's RNB classic.

113. Australian GP (Confused by colours)

113. Australian GP (Confused by colours)

Vettel claimed the biscuits in Australia, leaving Hamilton to settle for the water-crackers and Bottas picking at the crumbs. After a polarising race, we make wild judgements about the remainder of the season, shine a spotlight on grand prix promotional events, and we get to the bottom of just how many Verstappens are on the track at any given moment.

107. United States GP (Firm for Verstappen)

107. United States GP (Firm for Verstappen)

It was hyped to within an inch of it's life, but the US Grand Prix did deliver some interesting talking points even if the drivers' championship remains on life support. We discuss which drivers are staying put, which are moving on and which new-comers look like existing drivers. Did you like the pre-race hype-o-rama? Us neither, and we work out definitely "Which F1 Driver are you?" via a highly scientific measure (the results may surprise you).

77. German GP (Skulls of wings of fire of death)

Hamilton is well on his way to winning the championship by something like 10,000 points after another crushing victory in Germany so we lighten the mood with some positive F1 News headlines and we look back at a very famous occurrence in F1 history for this week's quiz.

Rod and Zach waste no time getting straight into their Japanese Grand Prix coverage this week, including as much of the F1 news as was known at the time, Rod looks to Jenson Button for some trivia inspiration, an "overtake cake" is mentioned for some reason and we pretty much overcook it by the end of the show - hopefully you'll still find it entertaining enough! ;)

56. Italian GP (Like a baboon heart)

Phwoar what a controversial finish and we thought we'd do something a little different like talk about it for far too long. What do you know about the Monza banking? Not much? Well the Superquiz will help you out and why the heck is the title called "Like a baboon heart"? Well if you're looking to this extract for answers you are SOL, better have a listen to the episode instead.

42. 2014 season review (The one with the Box of Neutrals crossover)

It's been a long time coming, but apart from covering the final throws of F1 news for the year, the third round of the Formula E and giving the SuperQuiz one final crack for 2014, we can finally unveil the cross-over that our audience has been demanding for so long.

Throughout history there have been numerous meetings of the minds, two brilliant entities coming together to advance the cause of humanity; Socrates and Aristotle, Albert Einstein and Mileva Maric... Larry Emdur and David Koch.

For the first time Superlicense and Box of Neutrals have joined forces, and the result is truly epic. For over two hours the trials of tribulations of the 2014 F1 season are hashed out, with many pointless divergencies and indefensible examples of slander. We thought it was a fantastic way to finish off the year, there's certainly plenty of content here to tide you over for a while and there'll be plenty more to come in 2015 so that's about all we have to say about that.

We want to say a massive thanks to the following people for their assistance and support throughout the year:

And last but not least YOU THE LISTENERS!

41. Abu Dhabi (The definitely not breaking up show)

*** Details of the Superlicense Melbourne meet-up are on the Facebook page ***

Well we did it. We know who won, the high is wearing off but that doesn't mean we can't have a little fun talking about the race, and contest that never was and touch on the Formula E, a Fame and Fortune SuperQuiz and some of the best audio predictions you will ever (yeah, EVER) hear!

You won't want to miss this one AND we still have a season review episode to come - good times.

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!
