Here is the third and final part of this week’s show, specially segmented for YouTube viewers. In this section we look back at last weekend’s Indian GP and then talk to the GP2 Championship leader, Switzerland’s Fabio Leimer, shortly after his arrival in Abu Dhabi. Fabio, who drives for the Spanish-based Racing Engineering team, currently holds a slender points lead over England’s Sam Bird (who is well-known to regular viewers of our show). In our analysis of the GP2 and GP3 title deciders, I’m joined in the studio by Tom Gaymor, the former lower-rung single-seater driver whose promising career was cut short by an accident (from which he has now fully recovered). As well as voicing the new F1 smart-device, livetream app, Tom also calls GP3 and Porsche Supercup races for Eurosport. He loves his racing – as he loves all sport – and is as passionate about it now as he was when he was competing himself. He lives in nearby Teddington, sharing an apartment with the very talented Porsche driver, Richie Stanaway. Don’t forget that the full-length version of the show can be downloaded from tonight on iTunes; in the meantime I hope you enjoy this special “preview” segments.
