Formula One is the most expensive sport in the world and not many people know much about it—especially two Canadian women living in the heart of the Prairies. Catch Shanika and Caitlin, newbies to Formula 1, give their un-educated hot takes and teach listeners about what they learn about the sport as they learn it.
Max Verstappen Breaks Records at the Mexican Grand Prix
The race was a bit of a dud with a few highlights: Max Verstappen's record-setting 14th win of the season (beating Lewis Hamilton) and Fernando Alonso getting a little karmic payback. We also share what we learned by diving deeper into Checo's father's political party and our eventful Halloween celebrations. Looking for memes and to stay connected?

A World Champion, A Tractor and the Japanese Grand Prix
The Japanese Grand Prix was...interesting but, we were way more interested in the fallout from the Cost Cap (yes Toto said he would spend to the high heavens), Pierre confirming Alpine, and the rumors that his and Esteban Ocon's family can't attend the same race, and the now infamous tractor incident. Congrats to Max Verstappen, a well deserved win!! Looking for memes and to stay connected? Follow Get Checkered on Instagram, Twitter, TikTok, and watch us on YouTube to see our faces.

We're Back!! The Cost Cap Drama and the Singapore Grand Prix
Weeeee'reee back! We took a mini break because of work, school, and our general health. This week, we chat about the Cost Cap controversy and try to piece together who actually went over the budget; the reason why Pierre and Esteban aren't friends (spoiler! it may be because of a woman); and we chat about the DNF-heavy Singapore Grand Prix.

We Fell Asleep During the Italian Grand Prix
Gotta admit when it really wasn't our race. Great drives by Lewis Hamilton and Carlos Sainz but...with Red Bull and Max having a car that no one can challenge, the season feels like it is dragging on. Max will be the world champion and many teams and drivers will need to go back to the drawing board to figure out how to do better next year. Looking for memes and to stay connected?

Did Mercedes Fumble the Bag at Dutch Grand Prix?
We love you so much that we recorded while on our holiday! The Dutch Grand Prix was a blend of chaos and disappointment. Max Verstappen had another predictable win but...Lewis Hamilton came oh so close to finally getting his first win of the season. We also chat about the brilliant Hannah Schmitz and the Alpha Tauri conspiracy theory. Looking for memes and to stay connected?

64: Takes on the Daniel Ricciardo, Oscar Piastri, and McLaren Drama
The last week in F1 has played out like an episode from an early 90s soap opera.
