Formula 1 podcast: Fired boss Bernie Ecclestone should get hired by US President Donald Trump

Bernie Ecclestone was fired from Formula 1. What should he do next? We think he could be a TV commentator, so he gets to travel to the races for free (since he’s known to be cheap). Or his good friend Donald Trump could hire him as an government relations expert. Current affairs indicate that Trump might need Ecclestone's service immediately. Or maybe he could start up a business with his fellow unemployed men from the paddock, Nico Rosberg and Ron Dennis.

We always knew that Formula 1 would find it hard to replace Bernie — that’s why the new owners have replaced him with three people. The new management also thinks Formula One’s existing offices are too small — obviously, they were made for a one-man team only. And should Formula 1 hire circuits expert too?

The new year might not be Bernie’s year, but in all other sports, it is fast becoming the 'Year of the Oldies'. Does this mean that Kimi Raikkonen will finally win some races this season? Likewise for Ferrari and McLaren too? In this week’s episode of the 'Inside Line F1' Podcast, we talk about Lewis Hamilton’s helmet design competition (what would it look like if Adrian Newey designed it?) and Daniel Ricciardo’s oral tinea thanks to the shoeys (seriously).
