5RedLights- Williams vs Haas, The Fight for P9
In this episode we consider which team will come last in the Formula 1 Constructors Championship in 2021. Williams look to have the better car in most conditions, though Mick Schumachers P13 in Baku has given Haas 9th and the advantage over Williams who sit in 10th again. Can Williams pull it back to avoid 4 consecutive last place finished? Their hopes may ride with Mercedes junior and widely recognised Valtteri Bottas replacement George Russell...

5RedLights- Azerbaijan GP 2021 Preview
Thanks or not thanks Baku? This weekend F1 returns to the streets of Baku in Azerbaijan. Red Bull look good after the first two practice sessions, however it will take more than pace on a Friday for Max Verstappen to extend his championship lead over Lewis Hamilton. Hamilton however is driving a car that both him and teammate Bottas think is simply not fast enough this weekend.

5RedLights- McLaren Back on Top?
In this episode, we consider whether McLaren are on their way back to the top of the Formula 1 grid. They've been on the up since they suffered two ninth place finishes in two years, finishing third last year and aiming for another third place this year if they can hold off a resurgent Ferrari. Lando Norris has recently signed a new long-term contract with the team and hopefully they can carry across their success as a team into 2022 and the new regulations.

5RedLights- Spanish GP 2021 Race Preview
In this race, we preview the 2021 Spanish Grand Prix, held at the Circuit Barcelona-Catalunya, in Spain (shocking right). Mercedes looked back to their old form last weekend in Portimao, and Red Bull and Max Verstappen will be looking to dent their confidence this weekend, going into the historic Monaco Grand Prix next time out. At a circuit that isn't known for its overtaking, lets hope Verstappen can take another win away from Mercedes, at the track at which he recorded his first win in Formula 1 in 2016- on his Red Bull debut following a crash between Mercedes duo Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg on the opening lap.
