A very special 800th episode of The Parc Fermé! Join Paula nd me as we review the Formula 1 Italian Grand Prix. We review each team as they finished and offer our awards of the race and answer your listener questions. We close with a very special message to all of our listeners.
Yet to listen to the podcast but I hope this was mentioned.
It’s been 15 years to the day.
We didn’t discuss it but it was a day of days in F1. The year we started podcasting. :)
Congrats to the 800. I think I am now listening for at least 10 years and I still enjoy your podcast very much! F1 drivers come and go, but you guys stay!

It’s been a long road but we’ve enjoyed it. :) As for Williams, that’s the question, where would they be if both cars averaged Albon’s results? Slightly ahead in championship or not?
