F1 Podcast: What caused the bizarre penalty confusion in Jeddah?

With Red Bull dominating in Jeddah amid podium confusion, RacingNews365.com journalists Michael Butterworth and Dieter Rencken join Balve Bains to dissect the perplexing talking points from the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix.

Red Bull's tag as Championship favourite was underlined by a one-two finish in a fearsome display of speed at the Jeddah Corniche Circuit. Sergio Perez triumphed on the Saudi Arabian streets ahead of a frustrated Max Verstappen, but reliability concerns remain with RB19 cars. The big talking point was undoubtedly the decision-making going on behind the scenes as Fernando Alonso was penalised and told to hand over his podium trophy, before being reinstated long after the chequered flag. Joining new host Balve Baines to discuss the talking points from the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix are RacingNews365.com journalist Michael Butterworth and Dieter Rencken, Editorial Director of RacingNews365.com . With the race being shaken up by a mid-race Safety Car, were Race Control too trigger happy with their call? In the emergence of a new battle forming at McLaren, which driver should take priority at the Woking team? And what's the state of play with underperforming Formula 1 giants, Mercedes and Ferrari? All this and more, on this edition of the RacingNews365.com F1 podcast!
