Sparks fly in the shed this week as the cider lovin’ chief graphics designer and social media guru Craig Alderson rejoins the panel alongside bromantic partner and uber brah Anil “Nutella” Parmar who is probably not a student and definitely wields a mean beard comb.
Queen V, the ever fabulous Vivian Bove, makes it 2 in a row in hopes of getting Kimi Raikkonen’s contract extended and decidedly classes up the joint with her posh frock that throws Spanners for a loop. Speaking of which, Host in Chief and raconteur extraordinaire Spanners Ready makes it an official anniversary as it was a year ago this week that the first emails began to fly about the creation of the show now known as the “The Judge 13 F1 Courtroom Podcast”. Spanners is joined by a bottle of rum in celebration.
The ever loquacious Mattpt55 joins Spanners in holding down the fort and goes for a personal best in pauses. No word yet from the lads in the record room but there’s no doubt it was a doozy.
This week the many changes wrought by the WMSC are examined by the panel starting with a good round of calendar bashing along with a bit of a geography lesson. Tyres are on the menu to as a battle royale erupts between the Pirelli and Michelin factions as the merits of each proposal are savagely debated.
Spanners throws a twist into the Quiz this week as he tests the autocomplete knowledge of his panel. Find out which contestant winds up on top in this fiendish battle of wits and play along yourself for free.
The panel gets back down to business by exploring the goings on at Lotus and attempt to prognosticate it’s thorny path as the creditors tighten the screws on the gang at Enstone, and explore the implications of teams going into administration of the entire ecosystem of F1 businesses. The gang then picks up where they left off to have a close look at the nonsensical nature of the new SuperLicense system being put into play by the FIA.
This week the panel learns Things about the unusual literary lurker in F1 and exactly the right way to properly express oneself in Elizabethan English.
Thanks again to the Jury for providing an excellent stream of comments and facts. Unfortunately we were too distracted by Anil’s beard comb and sippy cup to get to them but we’ll do better next time, Jury, we promise. Honest. Join @SpannersReady, @Mattpt55, Anil Parmar @FormulaEDiary, @Craig_Alderson and @VivianBove on Twitter where we sometimes talk about stuff. With Words.

iTunes 5 star reviews: We would also like to take this opportunity to ask you all for your support. As the TJ13 community grows the Podcast is becoming a huge part of the journey. From recent chats within the F1 paddock in Jerez we have found it is establishing a following within the world of F1 and we would like to continue to grow and make TJ13 the number one site for F1 information across the globe.
One way to establish this would be if you could all vote on iTunes with a five star rating as this then pushes the podcast up the rankings and in turn brings more people into the site. This will allow further development of the site, contributors and always with the vision of giving everybody a voice.
