Can anyone now stop Sebastian Vettel in 2013?

That's the question everyone - including Red Bull's rivals we strongly suspect! - have been pondering in the days since the German's resounding Canadian GP victory at the weekend and it's a topic The F1 Show will be tackling head-on on Friday night as we dissect the events of Montreal.

We'll be assessing whether Fernando Alonso is now the only man who can take the fight to his perennial rival in the championship, while the team will also discuss the implications of the World Champion's decision to stay with Red Bull until at least the end of 2015.

Sebastian and Fernando were race day's two front-running stars at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve of course, but the man who stole the show in qualifying was Williams rookie Valtteri Bottas and Natalie Pinkham has travelled to Finland to catch up with the young star on his return home.

Elsewhere and it was a weekend of contrasting emotions for McLaren and Force India in Canada and during the show we'll hear from Sam Michael and Otmar Szafnauer as they discuss their respective team's form and the battles in the midfield after a third of the season.

But as well as looking at the here and now in F1, Friday's show will also pay tribute to one of the sport's most famous and charismatic figures of the past. Twenty years to the week of his untimely death, and ahead of the eagerly-anticipated summer release of the movie Rush that depicts the story of his 1976 title-winning year, we'll look back at the career of the great James Hunt.

And finally...in that other mid-season development race you will have heard all about by now, we check in with Ted Kravitz and Johnny Herbert to see how work is progressing on Sky Sports F1's entry for the Red Bull Soapbox Race on July 14. We have high hopes boys...

So that's The F1 Show, presented by David Croft and Natalie Pinkham with guests Karun Chandhok and Johnny Herbert, from 8pm on Friday on Sky Sports F1. Don't miss it - but in the event that you do, remember it's repeated across the channel over the weekend and will be available on the website to watch via Sky Go.
