It's taken all of three races, but the first 2015 feud between Nico Rosberg and Lewis Hamilton erupted in the wake of another Mercedes one-two at the Chinese GP.
Rosberg's accusation that Hamilton "unnecessarily compromised" his race chances naturally prompted many column inches in the press and online media in the days after the race, with the German's psyche also put under the spotlight after he suffered yet another defeat to his world champion team-mate.
Two men who have seen plenty of intra-team rivalries down the years, Williams co-founder Patrick Head and F1 journalist Peter Windsor, are perfectly placed to judge the latest fascinating round in Lewis v Nico and they joined Natalie Pinkham in the studio to debate that burning topic and all the other talking points from Shanghai.
In addition to the ructions at Mercedes, the trio take a look at veteran Kimi Raikkonen's improved form after his second successive fourth-place finish and, at the other age of the F1 age spectrum, the rise and rise of Max Verstappen. Is the 17-year-old a future superstar in the making?
And, given their respective links to Williams, former director of engineering Patrick and team manager Peter also analyse the situation at their old team after they were again overshadowed by Mercedes and Ferrari.
So, as you can tell, it’s a packed show and one we hope you enjoy!
