The traditional F1 August break is already a distant memory: Fernando Alonso is leaving F1, Carlos Sainz is joining McLaren - and the Force India team is in new hands. In this fast-moving episode of the Motorsport Show, we encompass all of this and more: Edd Straw, GP Editor of Autosport, joins us in the studio to talk about the Sainz Switch and the candidates for the other McLaren seat. We talk to Gunther Steiner, Team Principal of the Haas-Ferrari F1 team, about the role played by Dallara in the team's formation and its subsequent, dramatic improvement - and also about the prospects for American drivers in F1. Alex Albon, an F2 pace-setter this year with DAMS, talks us through a lap of Spa, venue of this week's Belgian GP; and we meet a young Australian who won the marquee Renault Eurocup races this year at Pau and Monaco.
