Finley and Michelle kick off the latest episode of Torquing Point by discussing just that. Max Verstappen may have won because of strategy rather than superior pace, but with hotter temperatures set to stick around for the next few races, could he put together a title challenge?

Behind the Dutchman and the Mercedes drivers was the Ferrari of Charles Leclerc. The pair discuss his excellent start to the season, in which he has dragged his team to P3 in the standings, and wonder whether he’s getting the credit he deserves.

A moment is taken to applaud the efforts of Nico Hulkenberg before a brief look at what to expect from next week’s race in Catalunya. Will it be the start of a titanic title fight? Cross your fingers…
