This Week: Episode 2 - January 15 2021


THIS WEEK: EPISODE 2 - 15/01/2021
In this week's episode we take a look at what's happening at the Alpine F1 Team as an interim livery for the team's car was unveiled as part of the much publicised "Renaulution." We talk Mercedes, Ferrari, McLaren and Red Bull and take a look at what's going on with the 2021 F1 calendar.
In addition to answering some of your questions there's news on W Series, Indycar, Formula E, Extreme E, MotoGP, the WRC, the Dakar and WEC as Toyota unveil their stunning hypercar.
Apologies for the EXTREME close up. Got the audio fixed, but working with the Osmo Pocket for the first time I got the framing all off... who knows, next week I might get audio AND visual sorted!
Thank you for your support, your comments and your subscriptions. Keep your questions coming and I hope you enjoy the episode.

Signed Copies of Will's book, "My Greatest Defeat" are available now:



    Will you do a great job. Thank you for sharing your time with us.

    Hello there will ! Love your content ! Sorry for another covid question but in some sports a few teams already vaccined their athletes, cf Team UAE in Cycling with in it Tour de France winner Tadej Pogacar for exemple, could we see F1 Teams have their whole factories or maybe just race staff to get vaccined to ease travelling ?

    Suspicious Hamilton hasn't signed yet. Heard rumours he seemed a little greedy, which made one of the major owners quite annoyed. Now, WHEN exactly is the GO/NOGO DATE for that signature? If the discussions are continued to be procrastinated, WHO would sit in that car? I was hoping the Hulk... Getting George out of Williams should not be that easy...

  • Raghav Kejriwal

    Hey Will, loving the videos. One question related to brexit is will the teams in UK that have driver academies be affected by it? The reason this comes to mind is Premier League football clubs, under Brexit rules have/will be banned from signing Under 18 international players.

    I have a question for you Will Buxton: You think maybe with the new incoming budget cap, can be possible on 2022 the F1 will have a major interest for new manufacturers like (for example): Lamborghini, Porsche, Audi, Ford, Toyota. Or maybe in the later future. What do you think? Love this video because i like having new on the Motorsport.

    Will can talk so much and so fast that when he slows down to a normal pace he can make a 20 minute plus weekly news shows mostly about Formula 1 during the offseason. #IMissWillBuxtonOnTheGrid

    Hey Will, thanks for another week of catching up on motorsport news. Question. In the 2020 F1 Season, there was a lot of backlash in the media when Checo tested positive for covid19. A lot of questions asked, like where did he get it, Instagram sleuthing to find pictures of him and his wife out and about. However, when the rest of the grid started to get it, the reaction from the media seemed a lot more mild. No questions as to how or where Hamilton got it just a quick footnote when the rest got it, no major news articles when Norris, Leclerc or anyone else tested positive. Why is this?

    I have a question for the f1 gaming fans. Obviously you played a huge role in the evolution of the game with the my team feature, so can you give us any update as to the status of the new tracks Ie, imola and portimao. Are they going to be in the game or are we having to have another year of the same calendar even though we don’t have it in real life. Any information in the slightest would b greatly appreciated not only by me but millions of others😅! P.s these videos r very ez to watch and very enjoyable!

  • lifeschool

    Thanks for making these shows. I know other channels already do this kind of Woodland Talk format, but as you can see, there are a lot of fans hungry for news. Thats all we might get if they decide to shut down half of the GPs again this year. Yourself, Lando and Sir Lewis already had the virus and are safe - maybe it would have been safer to infect everybody back last April.

    Hi Will, really enjoying your weekly dose of motorsport news. Regarding Brexit, there is a goods passport system that affects transporting race cars, and it would be good to understand this further. Something to do with 40% of value of car. That’s a mighty big passport bill for 2 x F1 cars in each team isn’t it?!
