The first episode of the new run sees Chris Harris, Paddy McGuinness and Freddie Flintoff taking on F1 drivers Lando Norris, Sebastian Vettel and Antonio Giovinazzi at Silverstone on the weekend of the British Grand Prix. Let’s just say it’s an experience one of the three presenters is unlikely to be allowed to forget in a hurry. There’s also an emotional tribute to Paddy’s boyhood hero, stunt motorbike rider Eddie Kidd, who was left with life-changing injuries after a 1996 crash that ended his career.
