Digital Warmup Qatar is hosting the World Cup (Hi, FIFA & David Beckham) George Lucas loves F1 enough to travel to Qatar Zak Brown shows off his new tattoo to David Beckham Pierr…
 
You know what they say, what happens in Brazil...comes to Qatar. We unpack the ensuing Red Bull v. Mercedes drama (Toto & Christian give the Real Housewives a run for their money with the awkward tension and sick one liners). Then, we dive into Qatar GP prep covering track deets and what to expect Sunday. Let’s go, Boxes! Digital Warmup Lap 1: Merc…
 
What a pão-some weekend in Brazil! There was racing. Lewis Hamilton was a GOAT. Lando Norris felt 22. The FIA was consistently inconsistent. Christian Horner was predictably petty. And, oh look! A wild Fuming Toto Wolff appears. Boxes, let’s unbox-box the Brazil Grand Prix! Digital warmup Lap 1: F1 news Goodbye Antonio “Italian Jesus” Giovinazzi an…
 
Ch-Ch-Ch-Ch-Checo. Checo, Checo, Checo the F1 driver! What a race! And by ‘what a race’ we mean ‘what a first part of the first lap’! The majority of the drama might have been condensed to the first couple minutes, but there’s still plenty to talk about (conspiracy theories, French sandwiches, & that smoke show of a pit stop🤦‍♀️). But, there is one…

Can you say Box Box?! Digital Warmup Lap 1: Box Box Inbox Rachelle’s grandma watches a GP for the first time We have the bestest Boxes Valtteri Bottas’ …
 
The US GP gave us a lot of Cowboy Mojo. Track limits were exceeded, spots were conceded, & some of our drivers got a lil overheated. But we witnessed some spectacular battles along the way. So, Boxes, let’s mosey on down to COTA and chat all things US GP! Digital Warmup Lap 1: Box Box Inbox Lap 2: McLaren Zak gets a phallic tattoo to commemorate Mo…
 
This ain’t our first rodeo, but it is our first US GP! Saddle up, because we’re prepping hard for our first stateside race weekend. We get to know the lay of the land, including a COTA track walk + what to expect. But first, it’s time for an XL Digital Warmup (doo doo doo) where we get into all the F1 gossip from the last couple of weeks. Boxes, le…
 
A couple of months ago we took to IG for a vote on films to review. And in the spirit of America (and the American GP this week), we chose the film that got zero votes. And now we know why. Today we’re reviewing Herbie Fully Loaded! Starring America’s sweetheart (circa 2000s), Lindsay Lohan!!! This movie isn't gonna shift your gears, but maybe our …
 
Istanbul was once Constantinople! Now it’s Max in first, not Lewis Hamilton!

To summarize, there was a rain cloud over Vladimir’s mother! The Russian GP gave us race-y racing and shady strategizing and drizzly despair. We saw some spectacular performances, like Lando charging through Sochi and Max starting from the bottom and now he’s...where?! Because as is often the case in F1, the rain washed away all our expectations le…
 
Grab your vodka and your babushkas, it’s time to prep for the Russian Grand Prix! We’re headed to Sochi — a subtropical resort town and a beautiful vacation destination...for most. Athletes, however, seem to regard the place as more of a bleak nightmare built on a pile of framed Putin portraits. Who’s excited?! During our Digital Warmup, we brush u…
 
Today’s Italian GP felt like it went from Buongiorno to A-river-dirt-chi real quick. But the day was still jam-packed with moments like the Verstappen vs. Hamilton battle coming to a bizarre head, a totally un-bleak comeback from Valtteri, and a TRIPLE McLaren shoey (love a Zak Brown moment). Safe to say, we’ve got a lot of action to unpack from Mo…
 
Mama Mia, what a week! In a surprisingly unsurprising turn of events, Alfa Romeo replaced a Finn with a Finn. Valtteri Bottas’ multi-year Alfa contract means bleak afternoons will soon be but a distant memory. George Russell’s move to Mercedes put a swagger in his step that we hope never turns bleak. And Alex Albon joins Williams in an AlphaTauri T…
 
Orange you glad the only thing clogging up Circuit Zandvoort was a bit of race traffic (+ some literal clogs) rather than puddles on puddles of rain water?! In a blissful change of pace, we saw happy spectators, race-y racing, and your typical 2021 podium finish (fav trio Max, Lewis, and Valtteri). But before we get into what happened on track, we’…
 
Welkom to the sandy dunes of Zandvoort! Where the track is popping, the people are orange, and the weather is most definitely 💯 sunny. It's been 36 years since the last race, so instead of taking a short view back to the past, we decided to focus on the very thrilling present. Get ready for a full-send Digital Warmup followed by the ultimate Zandvo…
 
So, what do you do when the rain is pouring in your face, and the whole world is on your case? Do as Michael Masi (not Adele) does & stare at the same graph for four hours while everyone just...waits. The Spa Grand Prix was a cold rainy mess, seemingly to no one's shock but the FIA's. Sure, we gave it the old college try and got a couple riveting l…
 
Did someone order an F1 race, a rainy forecast, and a side of Belgian fries? The Belgian GP weekend hasn’t even kicked off yet and it’s already serving us more excitement than a Lewis Hamilton outfit. As always, the first half of the episode breaks down everything you need to know before heading to Spa. Then, we revisit the ghosts of GPs past. We’r…
 
Today we’re reviewing the latest installment in the Fast & Furious franchise, F9: The Fast Saga. Although it has almost nothing to do with F1, we noticed some similar themes.

To sum up our takeaway from the McLaren documentary in three points: 1) Bruce McLaren was literally the coolest 2) Kiwis might be the loveliest group of people ever 3) We feel majorly justified in being McLaren fans 'til we die But before we delve into our McLaren analysis, we've obviously got to chat about F1 summer holidays and what everyone's be…

DISCLAIMER: We are neither engineers nor mechanics. Our expertise is in the drama. Not the physics. So, please bear in mind that we are all learning together! Without further ado, class (…
 
We may be a week into summer break, but Aston Martin and the FIA just can’t let the Hungarian GP go. With Sebastian Vettel’s disqualification came a lot of fuel-related questions. Why does the FIA need a fuel sample? Why didn’t Seb’s car have enough fuel? What even is fuel? We walk you through F1 fuel basics and break down Seb’s DQ as well as Aston…
 
If you were hung(a)ry for more racing, then the Hungarian GP was the all-you-can-eat buffet of races. A mere drizzle turned the track into a bowling alley right in lap 1. And with half the grid out (or attempting to chug along with a duct-taped chassis), it was finally time for the underdogs & senior citizens to shine. It was unexpectedly crazy, gl…
 
Hung(a)ry for more racing? We sure are! We’re back at it this Sunday at the Hungaroring. Instead of our usual pre-race tradition of telling a story from the past, we're focusing on the drama of the present. It’s an extra long digital roundup featuring a full-send analysis of the ongoing Mercedes/Red Bull feud. And, of course, a Hungary GP primer so…
 
What a cheeky little weekend in Silverstone! Max Verstappen and Lewis Hamilton got into a bit of an argy-bargy on track. Which Christian and Toto carried off track (there were emails involved).

'Ello govna (soz, Brits) from Silverstone! We celebrate the British GP with a short view back to the past to revisit the scandal of scandals. The gate of gates.

This week, we use Will Ferrell's groundbreaking satire Talladega Nights as a vehicle to delve deep into motorsport culture and how sponsorships work.

To quote a famous Austrian, we’re baaaack (assuming that’s what he said once he came back)! The Austrian GP exceeded all our wildest dreams. From race-y racing to penalties galore, it was exhilarating action all weekend long. Not even gravel could stop our (mostly) fab 20! Let’s break it down. Digital roundup Birthday boys Sebastian Vettel and Dani…
 
To celebrate our second weekend in Austria, we're taking a short view back to the past to meet the F1 legend, Niki Lauda!

James Hunt, played by Chris Hemsworth, was F1's resident playboy (he was no Thor…
 
The hills are alive with the sound of engines (except Pierre’s 😭 )!!! The Styrian GP (round 1 in Austria) was a lot like schnitzel -- simple, nothing too crazy, but yummy nonetheless. There were some overtakes, a few heartbreaks, but a lot of great driving really took the cake. Let’s get to it! P.S. We know F1 made the same Sound of Music reference…
 
Guten tag! We celebrate the first round at the Red Bull Ring with a short view back to the past to revisit Austria 2002. Scandal. Betrayal. Dire consequences. It’s the kinda drama we live for.

Episode 004 of the F1 Hobby Box Box Podcasts has about as many twists and turns as the Paul Ricard circuit; a review of the dramatic French GP, a discussion on 'breaks' and whether they are over priced, not done for the community and how we wish to change that. Spoiler alert. Mark enters a passionate waffle about this which does last for around 4 m…
 
C'est le French Grand Prix! And like everything French, the weekend was filled with tradition and style. We saw overtakes and undercuts. We saw teams under strategic pressure and tyres with just the right amount of pressure. All wrapped up in a red and blue striped box box (and the occasional gorilla). O là là! Let's break it down.…
 
Bonjour! We celebrate the return of the France GP with a short view back to the past to meet the man behind the circuit, Paul Ricard.

Vive la F1! Vive la F…
 
We celebrate what could have been with a short view back to the past. We revisit one of the most dramatic races of all time: Singapore 2008. But before we get knee-deep in all the drama, our digital roundup this week is a special one. First, we’re Internet famous! And second, we merge The Bachelor and F1 worlds together into some of our best memes …
 
It’s the Baku Grand Prix! And what an action-packed, drama-filled race it was. There were heartbreaks and overtakes and smoking brakes and popping tyres (ffs).

We celebrate Baku 2021 with a short view back to the past to revisit one of the craziest races in F1 history. There were retired cars, penalties abound, flying car parts and fighting words. In other words, it was the drama we live for. But before we dig deep into that story, this digital roundup is one of the most comprehensive ones yet. From missi…
 
Tyres with a why?! Let's learn all about tyres. We talk the business side of things, break down all the technical stuff, explore tyre strategy, and delve into pit stops. And of course, we get a little side-tracked (we love track limits as much as Max) with some funky F1 tyre stories and conspiracy theories. Boxes, let's roll 😎 The (en)tire history …
 
It’s the Monaco Grand Prix! What the Monaco circuit might have lacked in action, it made up for in drama.

We celebrate Monaco 2021 with a short view back to the past to revisit a story about one of F1's true icons, Taki Inoue. Plus we give all our hot takes on F1 news and the upcoming weekend. A brief note: If the sound is a bit off, it's because we recorded it to sound like we were coming live from the tunnel on the Monaco track. You know, for authent…
