Bring Back V10s returns for series 4! We're kicking off by looking back at how Fernando Alonso got his break in F1, driving the slowest car on the grid. Mark Hughes and Edd Straw join host Glenn Freeman to revisit how Alonso took the backmarker team to heights that couldn't have been expected, embarrassing more established drivers and teams along the way.

We also look at how close Minardi came to not racing in 2001, Alonso's two-seater F1 crash with Nigel Mansell (!), and why Renault took him off the F1 grid for the following season.
