What next for sensational Sainz? - 2024 Australian GP Review
Listen now
No appendix. No problem. Carlos Sainz capitalised on Max Verstappen’s first DNF in two years to win the Australian Grand Prix in his first race back since having surgery for appendicitis. In the Melbourne paddock, Tom Clarkson is joined by 1996 World Champion Damon Hill and Australia’s Channel 10 Grand Prix broadcast team - Scott MacKinnon, Richard Craill, Sam Power and Tim McDonald – to discuss how Sainz made such a remarkable comeback and whether he now has the edge on Ferrari teammate, Charles Leclerc. Lando Norris claimed McLaren’s first podium of 2024 but could he have pipped Leclerc to P2? Is Daniel Ricciardo stuck in a rut after being outperformed by Yuki Tsunoda again? And were Williams right or wrong to give Logan Sargeant’s car to Alex Albon after the latter crashed his in practice? As well as the top three, you’ll hear reaction from Max Verstappen and RB Team Principal, Laurent Mekies. Plus, we discuss a double points finish for Haas and that dramatic last-lap crash for George Russell, which saw Fernando Alonso demoted to P8 with a 20-second penalty.
