Thanks for the great series Danny/Drew! Looking forward to seeing whatever you guys do next.

Helped spark my interest in F1 and had me watching every second of it this year and loved it. Thank you!

Edited by MachoFantastico

I really hope you guys return for next season, shame if they end it here.

Edit: You are ending it here, I guess your reasoning makes sense but still. :(

ALT+FE @Giantbom.com.

(No plus.)

You guys should do some kind of Motorsport/Racing Game show on GB/Gamespot! You've done so well getting people into F1, so why not get people into motorsport in general and racing games! I know that Drew has spent time in iRacing etc. and Danny likes the F1 games, so maybe a short weekly show about all things 4 wheeled and fast (centered around video games) would be a cool thing to do!

I've listened to every podcast, and the only time I watch races is when I travel and they're playing on the big tvs in the airport or when I can't sleep in the hotel room and all that's on is cricket or F1. So long and thanks for all the fish, Alt+F1!

I'm really sad that this is the end of this podcast, but what a perfect ending.

Edited by Sessh

Really bummed that this is over. It was just such a great show every time. Maybe they'll at least do a few special episodes or whatever next year still, that would already be something.

Does anyone know of a good F1 podcast that doesn't get too opinionated?

Always liked that Danny and Drew pretty well avoided the whole 'this is my favourite driver/team' thing and just talked about everything.

Danny & Drew,

Thanks for making such a good podcast. I have been an F1 fan on & off since the 90s when my uncle introduced me to it as a child. I also lightly follow WEC & WRC & of course Formula-E. The only reason I have the giantbomb.com premium membership was because of this podcast funny enough, your first episode sold me & I love hearing Drew bring up his F1 activities on TGBC. I'm sad to hear you wish to end it but I understand the need to move on creatively & the tiresome job doing this podcast can be for you.

If I make a request, please do mid-seasons & finale wrap up episodes next season. This would abdicate you from having to write notes for each race, maybe a sentence or two to summarize your feelings on a race/ season standings as well as focus only on the highlight (Pastor lighting on fire, Pastor crashing, etc.). I think the community would really appreciate it as I have only found one other F1 podcast that is listenable & consistent in posting episodes. It however still falls far short of the entertainment I get from you guys. Best of luck in your new podcast venture, I look forward to hearing what you guys are going to create.

I'm going to miss this so much :( Alt-F1 was so good... Perhaps now Danny and Drew could start doing Fifa videos or something :P

Thanks for the awesome podcast guys - it got me into F1. Sad it's over, but it makes sense.

Edited by Traviswell

I neither started watching or already watched f1. I watched f1 for 16 years, then got bored the middle of last season and this season just listened to this. It's still an interesting sport, it's interesting what the engineers and designers do, but I'd be more excited if they all had the same car and it was just down to the driver.

Posted by Hurvilo

Thanks a lot for this podcast, it's been very enjoyable. I hope the long awaited ANIMECAST will be the replacement. ;)

Every motorsport fan should watch Capeta, it's actually pretty great.

EDIT: Also, God damn if Ricciardo isn't just the most fun to watch. To this F1 newbie, at least.

Firstly: Is that an LICD avatar you're sportin' there?

Secondly: Yeah. Pretty bummed myself. I'd take a Giant Bomb's Gaming Minute-esque "Maldonado Minute" check-in. :p

Thanks for this podcast series it was great!

Sad to se Jules Bianchi go out they way he did but shit happens and there really aint anything to do about it. Hes out of artificial coma and can breath on his own but hes still in coma and hasnt awakened, just wanted to add that.

Yes, it is. I've been a fan LICD for years now, so I thought Rayne would make for a great avatar.

Even that would already be better than nothing, yeah.

@corevi: NASCAR has a lot more passing, though, and minor collisions don't mean a car is out for the rest of the race. Less racing against the track, more racing against the pack of drivers. Also, there are a couple road courses in the season where they mix things up and have to turn right. While it's nowhere near as technologically amazing as F1, it certainly still has its redeeming aspects.

I hate that the races are like 3 hours, though.

Posted by xenolon

I just finished listening to this episode and now I'm kinda bummed out.

When I was a little kid we went to the Detroit Grand Prix and I was instantly hooked. I followed the sport all the way up until college when I lost interest. This podcast got me back into F1 (and racing in general) and I wish it wasn't ending.

In any case, thanks Drew, thanks Danny.

Nyoooooom.

So...Cricket podcast then?

Edited by Hassun

Despite the Mercedes dominance, it was an enjoyable season.

@drewbert @dannyodwyer I have thoroughly enjoyed tagging along on this journey and I am looking forward to your next project which I am sure will happen.

Posted by Anund

Loved the podcast guys! I'm also one of those who listened to this first, before the actual Bombcast if I had them both available at the same time. It's been great following the F1 season with you guys and I am sad to see the podcast end.

That said, I am excited for what you come up with next!

Posted by Cypherix

I was hoping you guys would continue for the 2016 season! It wont be the same without the podcast. :(

Sphere is far and away the best book Michael Crichton ever wrote. Everyone should read it. The movie was the worst adaptation of the material possible.

It's been an honor boys!

Posted by gaggle64

It's been a wild ride. Thanks for the podcast guys, it will be missed.

Posted by Ett

Alt+FE ?

Posted by cooljammer00

Guys, what are the odds this Danny and Drew podcast evolves into like, ALT+FIFA, or ALT+WRESTLING or something else that Danny knows a lot about and Drew knows very little about?

Posted by super2j

I learned something about F1, will I watch F1 now that alt+f1 is over? probably not... Just like Danny, what drove me to watch them was for the podcast. It was fun though, so can't wait to see what you guys do next.

My podcatcher is hating the way this name is formatted, DoggCatcher on Android. Switching to manual.

Edit: Ah, the RSS link doesn't 404 on my browser but does on my phone? Hmm...

@smek said:

pretty sure its the ó character breaking downloaders. jdownloader failed to grab it too from rss or website, damn you @dannyodwyer and your fancy pants languages!

@doomocrat: Same podcatcher, same issue. :(

Yeah, it was the ó messing everything up. I uploaded a fixed file that should work. Try downloading it again, and if that doesn't work, try re-subscribing to the Premium RSS feed.

Posted by ramagamma

Been a great run but I'd love to see Danny and Drew move onto analysis of other sports.

Thoroughly enjoyed! Can't wait to hear what you have next.

You might try watching IndyCar, which is more of a spec series these days.

Edited by lighthaze

So, how about WEC as the next project? Including a 24-hours Le Mans live stream?

Posted by cooljammer00

@emuprime: Maybe they flip the script and do CROSS+F1T

Posted by Afroofdoom

Thanks for the podcast guys, it's been emotional.

Looking forward to whatever you come up with next, though I'm hoping for Alt+FIFA (Alt+EPL?). As long as the magic Drew + Danny formula is maintained, we'll always have Alt+F1 in our hearts.

Can we get a language learning podcast next?

Edited by ehbunner

Been great listening to this show, like many others I started watching f1 because of this podcast. While I am bummed it won't be around next year and hope that I can keep my interest up without it but regardless Thanks for doing this this year!

And like someone else said please consider doing a few episodes next year, maybe just for big races, or once every 6 races?

Posted by OldGuy

Thanks Drew and Danny for a great cast!

Alt+Sumo would be great fun. :-)

I also second the call for suggestions for a good F1 podcast to listen to now that is relatively balanced...

I'd be really happy if they came back just before next year's season with talks about testing and so on. If this is indeed the last one, thanks for the podcast, it's been really enjoyable and it made me watch more races than I'd normally do!

Posted by Silan

My favorite podcast by far on this site, and really sad and kind of surprised you are killing it like this, but your reasoning is fair. Really gonna miss it and if Magnussen is out next year i guess im done again. Oh well, hope you find something else to make a regular podcast about!

@dannyodwyer: Idea for next year: do a Premier League podcast and get Drew into football (soccer for you Americans). Don't turn him into an Arsenal supporter though.

Posted by Zeno

Aww, I was hoping for Alt+F1 to return next year. Sounds like that won't be the case. This has been my favorite content on the site, by far, for the past year. I pretty much bought a premium subscription just to listen to this, which I probably won't renew now - unless D&D return with something new and awesome?! (Alt+UFC!)

Thanks for the laughs, guys! Hey Pastor...

@dannyodwyer No Danny, Smashzeug is not the word for Hammer, it's the word for drum kit...
