Episode notes

On this week's Cut to the Race podcast, Oli is joined by Abby and Sam to review the 2023 season of the bottom five teams in the Constructors' Championship. James makes a brief appearance as well just in time for a quiz on the first half of the season.

When reviewing the season, the panel begin with Haas and what 2023 revealed about the American team. They talk about the difference between the drivers but also the struggles that persisted and whether or not the driver line-up will remain the same in the coming years.

The trio move on to Alfa Romeo, touching on the underwhelming season of Valtteri Bottas and Zhou Guanyu before moving onto whether or not it's time that F2 Champion Théo Pourchaire takes a turn. Up next is AlphaTauri, which results in a lengthy discuss given the four drivers in 2023. The panel touch base on all four, revealing which ones stood out to them and whether or not having Daniel Ricciardo back is the right choice or whether Liam Lawson should be the team's choice.

The panel then dissect Williams' season. Of course, Logan Sargeant's rookie season is discussed as well as Alex Albon's excellent performance, scoring 27 points for the team. Oli, Abby and Sam review Williams' improvement before talking about Alpine. The three panellists talk about both Esteban Ocon and Pierre Gasly but mainly the issues that have seen Alpine fall back in the standings.
