Intelligent, informed Grand Prix comment and news
One of the best F1 journos around. Always inciteful, always on the money.
James Allen is unreal
The authority on everything F1. Fantastic insight!
This is just like the interviews that James Allen does before a GP, except maybe a little more in depth. I really like the original content, hearing different questions and answers, and also the range of people interviewed. Great podcast.
