The Bloke and A Bird Show Episode 86

It really wouldn't be an exaggeration to say that Formula 1 felt a seismic shift this past week.  The sacking of Bernie Ecclestone from the role he has held over Formula 1 for 40 years may have been expected to many, but yet still came as a surprise to all who follow the sport.  What happened this week was arguably one of the biggest events in Formula 1 in the last 30 years.  We discuss what happened, why it happened and wonder where the sport goes from here.

There were other stories this week though - Pirelli is concerned that the racing won't be great this year.

Filipe Massa will test a Formula E car.

Esteban Ocon will not serve as a Reserve Driver for Mercedes.

Stewards have new guidance for assessing penalties - and we're not sure it's better.

And it's the end of the line for Manor.
