  Dane Miller, Stephen Vilardo & Greg Kokot

Greg Kokot, Stephen Vilardo, and Dane Miller are back to discuss the Americanization of Formula 1.

Stephen starts the episode off by previewing the Miami Grand Prix with various facts about the track.

Greg then gives his take on the layout of the circuit and the international knock on the Grand Prix for being run in a parking lot.

Dane goes on a rant about last year’s questionably poor broadcast of the race, along with his disgruntlement with the overuse of replays during live action. Greg then chimes in with his take on the poor production decisions.

The conversation then transitions to Brad Pitt/Lewis Hamilton’s movie and the controversial decision to allow Pitt to race around the tracks in a real car later this year.

All three hosts lament the poor decision and why fans outside the United States are tired of the Americanization of the series.

Stephen then reads a tweet by NASCAR driver Landon Cassill that took a shot at Formula 1 drivers, and each host gives their reaction.

A brief discussion about NASCAR follows with each host pointing to the similar entertainment-over-racing trend that F1 is heading down.

The episode ends with a discussion of the rumors surrounding Formula 1’s potential purchase of Indy Car, Hamilton’s position in the standings, and the expectations for Ferrari moving forward.
