Podcast #464- The 2016 Season Preview

Join Paul and me as we discuss the final test session of the preseason and look ahead to the 2016 Formula 1 season. Who did what last week and how will they do in two weeks? What do we think about each team in the championship and where they’ll run?

Who do you think will do well in 2016 and where do you think McLaren, Haas, Red Bull, STR, Force India and even Mercedes will run?
