  • Terrific podcast, Jonesy is so Aussie, could of listened for hours. Kind of refreshing to hear him tell it like it was with all the anecdotes of the era.

  • AJ could not have spoken in a more Aussie way. After having recently lived there for 9 months I found his expressions outrageously hilarious.

  • Tom, this is a cracking series. AJ's podcast is a gem, like most of the podcasts with the guys who no longer have skin in the game. They can speak freely and that makes great interviews. Pablo Montoya's and Gerhard Bergers interviews were good fun, loved the one with Alain Prost. The ones with Emerson and Jackie were really moving as you get the feeling that even after all these years they still struggle to process the cruelty of their era. What about Jacques Laffite and Jody Sheckter? By all means thank you for these great podcasts

    Donny PopovskiDonny PopovskiPřed 27 dny
  • one of the most impressive races I have seen is AJ substituting for an injured Mario Andretti in 1985 CART(Indycar) race at road america . Flew in , no notice , no testing , no experience in the Indycar and came third , ran 2nd and had a chance to win . You don't see that level of diverse race craft these days.

    • I saw an early model Williams (maybe a replica) in an Adelaide museum (I think) and it was tiny compared to modern cars, hell, even 90s F1 cars seem small. Not a fan of the current crop of land yachts, even though they look great on TV. More like light planes.

I want to find the moment/video, where Grosjean/Hulkenberg (yellow F1 car) communicate through the radio, and his crew broadcast song, which he reply "quite lonely out here" and "is it Madonna or Kylie Minogue". I'm just curious, for 3 days straight now. Any help would appreciate it. Thanks.

    • +BP.AUS it is correct moment, Wetpractice at monza 2018. But, the song is different from what I remember. Maybe it's edited. Unlike high pitched electric keyboard sound in Madonna-Hung Up, it has more soft-beat-groovy sound like flute. Anyway, thank you.
