After 348 Grand Prix starts, just one remains. Ahead of his final race in Formula 1, Kimi Raikkonen joins Tom Clarkson to look back at his 20 year career: the races, the teammates, the bosses, the championship he clinched in 2007 and those he missed out on. ‘Everything comes to an end sometime’, says the most experienced driver in F1 history, who r…
 
Fear is something F1 drivers don’t often admit to feeling. Pedro Diniz does. In his 98 Grands Prix during the 1990s and into 2000, the Brazilian experienced the highs of hard earned top-six points finishes and, on his day, was a match for teammates Jean Alesi and Damon Hill. But, as he tells Tom Clarkson in a rare interview, lucky escapes from a fi…

Tommy Byrne’s talent in a racing car was likened to that of Ayrton Senna and Michael Schumacher. To those who watched him closely, he was a champion in the making. Why, then, did his Formula 1 career last just five races in an uncompetitive car? Tommy tells Tom Clarkson the story of the impressive wins in junior categories – including one in Ayrton…
 
Matching Daniel Ricciardo in the same car and twice finishing 6th in a Grand Prix is a Formula 1 record to be proud of.

In an honest and unflinchingly self-critical interview, Vergne tells Tom Clarks…

A life-long lover of beautiful cars, he tells Tom Clarkson what two things con…

Plus, Mazepin explains his long compet…
 
This week’s guest is that rarest of creatures: a man who was both a Formula One driver and a team owner.

Mick tells Tom Clarkson about adjusting to life in F1, the lessons he’s still learning from his fa…
 
The story of how Michael Schumacher made his debut, 30 years ago this week in Belgium, could have been lifted from a Hollywood movie.

The Californian is a four-time NASCAR champion and global motorsport icon, who in 2003 enjoyed a life-changing F1 test with Williams. He tells us all about that outing, how close he came to a switch to F1 afterwards, wh…
 
Some drivers seem destined to race in F1. Others have to fight for it. Roberto Moreno was in the latter camp.

This week’s guest was a brilliantly fast racing driver – in pure pace terms, arguably one of the best over his years in the sport.

We spoke to him about all of the above, as well as what it wa…
 
We’ve done something a little different this week, because we haven’t got one special guest, but four!

Lord Alexander Hesketh, who bankrolle…
