The Fish Rots From the Head
Elle is back this week and we dive right in to the story that has everyone talking: why is Mohammed Ben Sulayem’s foot constantly in his mouth and how does his shoe taste?
But seriously now, we tackle the issue of politics in sport and how it has actually NEVER been apolitical. Pull up a chair friends, this took a lot longer than we anticipated, because the FIA is not a serious organization and F1 is in many ways not a serious sport.
We also talked about budget woes of various kinds, lingering displeasure about Monaco, and much more.
Please remember to rate and review us wherever you’re listening and why not recommend the pod to a friend too; it would really help us out.
