A lighter look at Formula 1 from a group of guys with a good sense of humor! Keep up the great work!
Great F1 coverage
Young, energetic, insightful and several other words describe the Box Of Neutrals crew. If you want a weekly F1 podcast you're in luck fella, because they deliver the good stuff.
Although it doesn't go out as a podcast, these guys currently broadcast a one-hour live show as a race lead-in. Very welcome F1 media coverage here in Australia, the national broadcaster should take note.
In summation, these guys are a bunch of good sorts (with top norgs), worth a look.
