Podium or Pits is Badger’s weekly guide to what’s hot and what’s not in Formula One. Stay tuned for all matters F1, including a film preview, an unholy match, Villeneuve in a Ferrari, Tamara in Dubai, and a Red Bull charity photo montage…


What a happy coincidence – Do you want a sneak preview of the new F1 film Rush? Well, according to BridgetoGantry, this is footage of the production crew recreating Niki Lauda’s famous 1976 crash at the Nurburgring.

Talk about a walk in the woods….



Sauber, Sauber, what have you done? – Is nothing sacred any more? NOTHING?! Essentially, one of POP’s favourite F1 teams have joined up with one of POP’s least favourite football teams. Sauber and Chelsea, sitting in a tree, K-I-S-S-I-N-G. Eurgh.

The press release emphasises the “new and innovative” nature of the partnership. We’re not sure what’s particularly new or innovative about it, apart from maybe the fact that they’re both sporting organisations. Great.

The moment John Terry turns up at a Grand Prix with Sauber we may as well all go home.


We presume this might be quite emotional – Jacques Villeneuve will be taking to the track in a Ferrari at Fiorano in his father’s memory. The purpose is, of course, to mark thirty years since Gilles’ death in a crash during qualifying for the 1982 Belgian Grand Prix.

See here for more info and a rather cracking video.


Tamara and a doughnut – It involves Tamara, some watersports and a bandage dress. Good grief.

Just another day in the life, etc etc…


Wings For Life is back – Do you fancy having your face on a Red Bull car at Silverstone? You do? Then go here.
