2023 AzerbaijanGP Preview: Mercedes’ Technical Reshuffle, Will It Pay Off?

This week we delve into the potential effect of Mercedes' reshuffle of technical roles as well as Daniel Ricciardo's upcoming demo run at the Nürburgring circuit. We also delve into the new F1 Academy, and it's future with the void a faltering W Series leaves behind, and of course, the upcoming Azerbaijan Grand Prix on the streets of Baku. Plus, our predictions for the race, a hypothetical scenario where we create a new Formula One team, brainstorming potential changes to the F1 rules and more listener questions.
