    So Flavio wasn't poison for Alonso only.

      It's funny how Wurz was insanely lucky to get into F1 but as soon as he arrived there nothing went his way.
      Could have been at Ferrari, decided to stay at Benetton.
      Could have got a McLaren race seat, Dennis went for Kimi instead.
      Could have been at Jaguar which later became Red Bull, was unlucky to not be released twice.
      Just when he finally left McLaren, Montoya leaves after half a season so he lost the opportunity to race for them.


      In a parallel universe he might have been a world champion but then again in another one he also would have ended up at his fathers business. His career is just such an amazing story.

                                                One of the most interesting episodes so far. Gread guy this Alex Wurz! Very sorry for him, that he did not get his break through.

                                                  Ah, so finally it makes sense: Alex Wurz' promising start in F1 came to a shuddering halt the moment Flavio Briatore returned to Benetton.

                                                    I'd like to see a track designed by him on the fl calendar.

                                                    Btw, his commentary with Hausleitner is the best.

                                                      Always have great respect for the man, one of the very first drivers I've spotted, thanks for his famous blue and red shoes. Such a shame it didn't turn well with Benetton (thanks Flavio...again) and McLaren didn't let him race full time, but I was very happy he came back in 2007 and his Montreal podium was a great moment.


                                                      This podcast made me love Wurz even more. One of your best episodes for sure ;)

                                                        he was one great driver .. will you do a Jos Verstappen Beyond the grid? He has great story's i think, riding next to shumacher, and other great drivers from back then, or just Max verstappen . :D

                                                                                      Es wäre manchmal in einem Rennen interessant warum Fahrer Schwierigkeiten mit Ihren Fahrzeug haben.
                                                                                      Über Setup Einstellungen bzw. Setup finden redet der Profi sehr wenig.
                                                                                      Für einen ehemaligen Piloten kommt für mich zu wenig Inhalt raus. Der BMX Weltmeister ist und war immer ein wenig Showman.

                                                                                      Wendlinger und Lechner machen hingegen eine sehr gute Arbeit.

Mir kommt vor dass er den Ernsti auf der Uhr hat, weil der gern viel cooler (und männlicher) wär, als er eigentlich ist. Ist aber nur meine Vermutung.
