Interesting stuff. Regarding camera shots and angles, I remember seeing footage of the end of the first lap of an F1 race, in Portugal I think, taken from a handheld camera on the pitwall. Wow! It was spectacular. This was back in the late eighties or early nineties. But I don’t think this footage was a part of the live broadcast as far as I can remember, being shown in a documentary or something.
If it were up to me – more handheld cameras close to the road on the high-speed parts of the track.
It’s been so long since the last one, I went back to the beginning and started listening to all of them that are still available. I’m currently stuck back in whatever time it was when Turkey officially dropped off the calendar … much to your delight 😉
It’s been a fascinating exercise in studying the history of F1 from 2009. It’s also rather impressive quite how many predictions and other opinions you’ve offered – which were eerily accurate.
I hope we don’t have to wait as long for the next podcast!
Cool stuff indeed! Nice job. Interesting that bit about cameras, but with F1 it is like – narrowing it plain down to the core – Bernie needs to sell Rolex’s whereas Agag doesn’t need to sell The Arch of Triumph
Stumbling across the “An Aside with Joe” Sidepodcast was what lead to my GP+ subscription. I know you put a lot of work into GP+, but I admittedly enjoy the podcast format more. I have no people in my life I can really talk to about F1, so it’s nice to be able to listen to people having an informal chat while also providing a wealth of information and very informed opinions. I just wish the podcast was released on a schedule…frequency is irrelevant, but consistency is nice.
Windows 10 PC with chrome, must have been a temporary issue with the site its hosted on (maybe you crashed it with the number of people coming from your blog) as just tried again and its worked so downloaded it to listen later.
Regarding convergence, would anyone have caught Red Bull if the rules stayed the same into 2014? By the end of 2013 they were more dominant than ever, several years into the rules, and I fear that Mercedes will do the same if the rules stay the same.
Well done. You work hard at bringing F1 to those outside Pasquale Lattuneddu’s inner sanctum. Much of it is at no cost to the recipients and it is most appreciated.
CVC and the wee fella should realise that you add value to their product.
Well Joe, have to say I’m not upset with the sound of your voice and the “horrible” audio quality didn’t seem all that bad to my ears (have heard worse).
All in all a very entertaining chat that I was sorry it ended, left me wanting more. I won’t bother you by asking for this monthly or on any schedule at all. Whenever you do produce one though, I’ll be sure to listen!
Thanks for the chat!
Not sure why this last post of mine showed up as gi0lui (one of my many internet forum alter-egos). Have posted maybe 3 or 4 times as John C – guess I’ll just ‘sign’ at the end of each post in the future until I figure that out.
Sidepodcast is always worth keeping an eye or ear on. Yesterday’s item on the ban on visor tear-off strips being discarded in the pit lane and on the track was new to me. It is a tricky subject, though simple, the solution will have to be innovative as there does not seem to be a common sense one.
I really enjoy listening to you on these podcasts Joe, thank you for doing them.
Shame they are not more frequent but appreciate that is unrealistic as you are very a busy man.
I wonder if you might be able to comment on the idea of F1 events being live streamed to cinema screens? Imagine Spa on the big screen! I guess broadcast deals would prevent such a thing but one day maybe….?
As always a good listen, although I do find it amusing that on one hand you ask everyone to stop complaining about F1 but at the same time you complain about F1’s governance, rule changes, lack of transparency, 2017 technical changes, etc.
