Podcast: Is Binotto set to take over at Alpine?

RacingNews365.com journalists Michael Butterworth and Dieter Rencken join Balve Bains to discuss the key issues from the last week in F1, and to gear up for the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix.

Rumours over the past week suggested that Mattia Binotto might be set to take over from Otmar Szafnauer as Team Principal at Alpine. Alpine's poor start to 2023 led to public criticism earlier this month from CEO Laurent Rossi, leading some to suggest that Szafnauer's position may be under threat. But even if Alpine are keen to ring the changes, would ex-Ferrari boss Binotto be in a position to take over, and would he even want the job? Joining host Balve Bains to discuss the last week in F1 are RacingNews365.com Asia Correspondent Michael Butterworth and Editorial Director Dieter Rencken. Red Bull reserve driver Daniel Ricciardo had a seat fitting at AlphaTauri earlier this week, but does this mean he's set to step in and replace the underperforming Nyck de Vries? Why have Pirelli applied to the FIA to change the specification of the sport's tyres? How is the technical partnership between Red Bull and Ford shaping up? And what can we expect from this weekend's Emilia Romagna Grand Prix at Imola? All this and much more, on this edition of the RacingNews365.com podcast!
