Episode notes

The 'Cut to the Race Podcast' returns from its Christmas break with a very special guest, as Oli, James and Sam are joined by Manish Pandey.

Writer of the phenomenal, award-winning 'Senna', Manish has an endless catalogue of fascinating stories.

From the creation of that critically acclaimed film, to then getting drivers including Mika Häkkinen and Felipe Massa together for his next documentary 'Heroes', to his most recent endeavour 'Lucky!' - a discussion with one of the most influential and controversial figures in Formula 1 history, Bernie Ecclestone.

He also answers our questions on topics such as which modern driver he thinks will likely have the best story to tell in the future, and of course steps into the FormulaNerds Motorsport Time Machine!
