"What if you could walk into a room full of strangers and see names another elephant details floating above everyone's head. Augmented reality can make such world possible. The technology may soon be built into glasses. For example so does virtual content can be superimposed on our view of the real world. Engineers are close to solving many challenges involved in augmented reality at the same time however our understanding of the conditions on the which our brains can or cannot take advantage of the additional information is relatively limited in a recent study at the university of wisconsin madison and newark university. I would dhabi manipulated. The virtual content displayed. We found it under naturalistic. Viewing conditions the brain exploits. Small involuntary had movements which we call head jitter to improve visual perception for augmented reality devices to work well debt for they should record your head jitter and update the virtual content accordingly as an imported aside. We founded commonly available virtual reality headsets. Do not work well for large fraction of the population. Specifically some popular. Headsets provide a poor fit to women.

Legacy Of Muslim Travel Ban Will Be Hard For Biden To Erase

The body and his wife got into the U. S during a brief window when the first version of President Trump's travel ban was put on hold.

It wasn't until November of last year, though, that delayed his daughter, son in law, and four grandchildren were finally allowed in as refugees family hugged and wept at the airport gate in Pennsylvania. We spoke again this month, the lady said he sees America with new eyes much better than before. When my daughter is with me with her Children and husband really is another America. Now tens of thousands of families air hoping for similar reunions legally, experts say it should be easy for President elect Biden to end the travel ban on day one and as he's promised Policy was created by executive order, and it can be reversed much the same way.

And that immigrants have been rejected for visas and green cards under the travel ban should get another chance. People like Pamela Rajabi, I miss him. Don't need those arms holding me tight. Making me laugh. Rajabi has been separated from her husband for more than two years. Her husband off Sheen. Rajabi was born in Iran and lived in the U. S illegally for years.

Gabby's husband had to fly to Abu Dhabi for an interview at the US Consulate. They knew it was risky because of the travel ban, but she says they were trying to do the right thing.

Jessica von is with the Center for Immigration Studies, which advocates for lower levels of immigration. She says. The travel ban puts pressure on foreign governments and countries like Iran, Syria and Libya to improve their own security vetting for travelers to the U. S. The burden should be on these countries.

Saudi Arabia says it seeks a way to end dispute with Qatar
"I think that we should talk about the gulf because the gulf cooperation council due to meet in riyadh on tuesday to discuss a potential end to the blockade of qatar. That has been going on since twenty seventeen And obviously this is provoked Quite a bit of coverage about whether we will finally see a deal and see an end to this blockade So if for example you look and you have to look pretty hard but you will find coverage in the saudi daily arab news Which started with statements from the kuwaiti ambassador to saudi arabia. Says there is a for tunnel and positive atmosphere ahead of the talks. And how credible is the report of fraternal positive atmosphere Extremely good question. A lot of the coverage that we see so for example if you look At some of the coverage online at fronts. Twenty four Aljazeera tells aljazeera which is Very much the focus of some of the irritation from Blockading countries for that coverage They help they also covered this story. it took me a while to find that story to interestingly enough But they both they give different reasons for how close or how far this this group of countries might be to a resolution so if you look at france twenty. Four they mentioned A coach an analyst is saying that bahrain hasn't signed but the other blockading states have They quote The abu dhabi minister for foreign affairs on walker gash a big figure saying that political and social atmospheres in the gulf are looking to end the koto crisis. If you consider that to be a meaningful statement But if you look at what. Al jazeera is doing They kind of casually mentioned that you know any deal. won't be a comprehensive agreement it will be a set of principles and they say the pressure is on saudi from from the us To come to an agreement But the the uae has. It's own agenda so quite different versions of the same situation. What will break this. Because there's no way surely that kosovo will say we supported terrorism. Yes we're too close to run. That's very true. I mean previously. There was a list of i believe it was about twelve points that The blockading states for trying to get caught up to agree to that. Included things like shutting down Their state broadcaster aljazeera And qatar essentially said well. We're we're going to wait it out and did nothing as far as we can tell At least from the outside And so i think that what the customers have shown is that they can outlast this. So i mean i think it will really start with the idea that any agreement has to be a negotiated on more reasonable lines Looks like it will be about things like use of saudi airspace for example And so things you know if they start negotiating along things that where you might be able to reach agreement then an agreement perhaps could be on the horizon.
"Work in vanity fair the new york times magazine and sports illustrated. Let's give them a call. Let's do it. Hello hi. this is cheryl strayed. Thank you so much for agreeing to talk to us. I have my co host. Steve almond here. I am a big fan of your writing. Thank you thank you so we're talking about spending addictions today and we'd love if you could share with us and our listeners. Your story let's go back to the beginning. How how did this begin for you. I think it began Ten years ago. I think it was frankly. Precipitated by My wife lisa job overseas new york university and abu dhabi. And that's kinda hard to make a weekend trip and i was. I was on my own. And i was an empty nester. My last son had just got off to college. And when i was on my own i sort of just started shop i think it was related to repression. In my case. I think it was related to trying to figure out my sexual identity clothing for me is very Linked to sex and so it's one box two boxes. Three boxes four boxes. I mean no one except the ups guy probably felt it was insane. And you know. I got a sexual rush. Every time i opened the box and you know in some cases When even aware it out and it just would not stop and it got worse worse and frankly i wrote a book was a memoir by one of my sons and it didn't do well and that is when i hit the wall and i just felt the press. I thought i don't really give a crap about anything than you know ultimately went into rehab. Did it take you some time to come to the conclusion that it wasn't addiction. People diminish this experience. I think we say oh. You're you're a shopaholic and it's not really an addiction. I'm curious what your experience with that was well. I hate the term shopaholic. Because i think it. Minimizes what this is. I mean this is an addiction when you're spending six hundred thousand dollars on leather three years. That's an addiction. That's insane when you have over. One hundred pairs of leather pants and over one. Hundred pairs hundred fifty pairs of leather jackets in two hundred pairs of leather gloves. And obviously i'm a leather fetishists. That's an addiction and you know it's like any addiction it can destroy can certainly destroy financially but it can store relationships it harm my relationship To to my wife. So i really hate this idea that you know. It's like that movie shopaholic in it's kind of cute and it's ridiculous and i know because of rehab and and fifteen years of therapy but can you point to the moment where you realized you needed to address it. Get into rehab. Whatever it was. What was the the low point. I think it happened in two thousand fourteen because there are a lot of things going on within me. Begin to abuse myself physically. I mean you know. I would burn myself. I would cut myself I would you know play with frankly. With with weather is fixation hoods by myself and then i knew this was getting dangerous. 'cause you know you can kill yourself and that combination of factor said you. I'm really going down a rabbit hole. And i need more than just once a week therapy. I really need something. Very very Intensive edits help. But it doesn't cure everything and you know the the urge in the addiction still doing well. So what did you. You went into inpatient rehab. Is that correct. Yes and what did what did you learn there. I mean how did you learn how to at least control this. Even though you say it's still with you. Well i mean you know. It's it's like anything in rehab for me. I can speak for others. You know you're trying to get to the root cause and you know it's painful to realize i mean for me. I think this shopping outgrowth of tremendous sexual repression Fear of coming to grips with with who i am and i still don't know who i am sexually which i think is fine. I don't think we have to put labels but my wife had been waived in fear and shame as a child was terrified of my mother i could see her as a dominatrix. I never felt comfortable with myself physically. I never felt comfortable with the way. I looked

"Ever going to be completely equal but a qualifying session. it's one lap. Did you get faster than your teammate. For staff and crushed album. Seventeen to zero. Oh boy yeah. Yeah which i. i didn't remember. I wasn't tracking. That is still kind of surprising to see russell. I did know about he. He beat latifi sixteen to nothing. Also ricardo beat okon fifteen. Two two knots o'connor had such a also season. Yeah i was. I was frankly expecting more from from him. Yeah it's he's had might be on the chopping block next year. Yeah i mean my hope. Is that some of this comes down to it being out of the sport for a year. F one. It's such a bigger deal than it used to be. Because they're so stingy with cockpit time in modern f one So it's not like you have people who are like ready to you know it's not a real under study type job where you're doing the same job and you're ready to step in so i am hoping at least that being out of the car for a year and then coming from a different car entirely That this was kind of you know Growing growing pains for for okon. But yeah i think a lot of us certainly like the end of his stint force india. I was like this guy is the shed like. This guy just needs a good ride at a good opportunity. And he's going to do fantastically well. I did not see him. Getting schooled by ricardo. Like this regard is a good driver. But i do not consider him one of those like jordan like greats. Who's like you know. Rise on d'etre is to destroy his teammate. I yeah so oh counting. The beat like a drum like this is concerning. I'm real curious what happens when alonzo who's famously. Brutal teammates shows up their role ricardo. I feel like it was always a. He's more of a rage driver than the quality driver. You know So what do you often the russell's the opposite right perhaps he does quality. Judy weldon struggles a bit and rice. Who else i don't know. Well yeah it depends on the car next. One very surprising peres at qualified stroll. Eleven to three We've got gasoline versus caveat which is actually the same as leclair versus thirteen to four probably most surprising on the ferrari side. Although who knows what's going on there. Hamilton botas eleven to five. Which feels about right to me. I guess again. I would have expected about us to have been a little more competitive than that like in my hand. I'm like both pipped a fair number of but when i think about it no he gets a lot of times like you too. But i suppose when you're when the chips are down q. Three it has been pretty. Generally hamilton finals last clutches. From there though the races are much closer grosjean to magnuson seven to very close. Yeah for those prime positions. And i mean hey man. You've got the same gar against formula two cars. They'd be on top. So do you have not seen reagan eight nine to eight in favor of giovanni yeah. I had totally missed a juvenile staunch. The bleeding that well. Yeah he i mean. I feel like he doesn't show up in rick's is it all the cars not great like yeah he has. He has like incredible first. Labs like this like watching his in car from slap tends to be real good. I just don't follow along with his races enough to know where the pace begins to go away. But i i do think you're right like if you're in a mediocre car like that it's kinda all bets are off. I very hard time. feeling out. Who's four was better on the alfa romeo team and on the team at this point like for me i can like i look back there and i'm like yep seems seems like another rough week and then the last one here norris nine signs eight maybe landau into priory very close. It was less than a tenth in in qualifying this weekend. So pretty good pretty good. That was abu dhabi that we're talking about the news. Let's get into this something light hearted for rob. Yeah okay. so i wasn't here last week and i think this hadn't even happened when we recorded But one of new drivers The newly promoted an akita mazandaran decided to post something to his. Social media was a picture video of him. sexually assaulting woman in a car He posted a video. Where like for. Like i haven't seen the video description is kind of like for the laws. He reaches in from the front-seat To grow up the chest of a woman in the backseat him off the video ends. But it's clearly a unwelcome and nonconsecutive. Consensual physical encounter between between two individuals and clue as in the wrong and video since been deleted from social media But obviously this is pretty unacceptable behavior by you know any yardstick and certainly by what you'd expect from athletes in formula one It's below the accepted standards of behaviour and yet it appears to be. It appears like madison is going to be immune from the consequences of this. Because mazza penn is backed by a lot of money from his father's company and hossa one team is money very very badly and so mazza pin despite having done something that i think would be career ending in a number of sports And i'm not naive here like if you're good enough i. I suspect that there'd be allowances made for this pretty much anywhere in the sporting world but massapequa. Somebody who and and you guys can speak more to this. This is actually not really a shocker. That this dude. Who do something like this. This is totally within his. I mean we talked about the. It's been a couple of years okay. There was incident where he basically decks column gave him a a black guy after a race We talked last week. His behavior on track. You know the result. There was a quote i think drew said a couple of weeks back about him saying like he'll effectively do anything to to win a race regardless of you know putting himself or others in danger but he showed that enough to in the feature race a couple of weeks back and was given four at the strikes against him. Post-race so yeah. It's yeah i. I saw the very posted the video. Where the gracefully thankfully. Somebody blurred the victim's face. But yeah it's just he's just a prick like he just he. There's nothing about you know. Sometimes people just kind of show you where they are and he just looks like a rich kid who's had everything given to him. And i'm in life and has no you know emotional majority or you know kindness in them. I don't know. I think this is a really bad. Look for haas There's no shortage of drivers with money at their You know probably not the same amanda money that nikita maza pins father. managed to hoard at some stage during the past couple of decades of russia's very questionable. You know movement into free market capitalism. I think I think this is a real. I this this is the red flag. That's getting warned before they really have like he signed. But we're months away from testing. And i guess there was the the on this weekend that he wasn't there for a pipe the unrelated reasons for us. It's going to be really weird next year because you essentially have to young drivers coming in one of whom is the son of a you know regardless of how competitive michael schumacher was. He is re you know pretty well regarded and liked. Nfl and it's a famous name. Perhaps the famous most famous name in f one I think including senator. I think if you talk to a lot of people in the west schumacher is a is a name. That means a loss.

"Kimi raikkonen george russell pietro fittipaldi nicholas latifi and then Sergio perez and kevin magnusson. Both of whom were required to start from the back of the grid for use of additional power unit elements pietro fittipaldi filling in again for roman grosjean. Who is recovering back. In switzerland from those burns stayed in surgery. I think yesterday on. Yeah another one on his on his left hand. So yeah. that's the grid. Danny do you wanna take us through the start. Sure whenever i'm watching the first lap of the race. I'm always like oh i wonder what i'll get to get to talk On the next episode of shift one podcast beats speeder as cars. And i don't know if khartoum position during this whole op- drew because they all got off the start for stopping defended. Well it's not the it's not the most difficult corner in the world. I corner in the world to van from generally here at abu dhabi if we have contact it's in the middle of the pack when they sort of concertina up a little bit because it's also not a very slow corner so it's not like the oil breaking oil accelerating out there kind of taking an mkx mid range and approaching it as fast. Not as fast as they would during race pace so you tend to get his driver's either. You know bumbling into each other or escaping. Add of the fairly sizable off. That exists on the outside of turn one on the right hand side of this anti clockwise track. None of that happened either. Everyone was fine for stop and got through. Grace brought to us was fine for of anything that the biggest shock of the i was. How much of a gap that. Max managed to push on the to mercedes. We know boss often has a little bit of trouble over those first couple of turns on an opening lap. Getting a little bit attempts in the tires. It's kind of his thing happened in. Bahrain happened secure. But yeah this time. Hamilton was in a similar spot. He wasn't exactly gobbling up fatah's either the they were kind of behind and it was kind of a microcosm for the race. Nobody crashed into shutter. Everyone's kind of in their spouse and weirdly enough. The mercedes are having a bit trouble. Catching up with max idea. Sorry just go ahead run three. I did kind of wonder watching this though. I feel like the last races. Well maybe the last couple You lou to about us having problems getting good exit from corners of late in the scene. Become a real issue toward the end of the season. I do wonder if there's been sort of an endemic and growing problem with the with the merck's And their hardware as this year has gone because i do not remember like there have been various forms of otas having little bubbles in his game but like just a lack of exit from the corner seemed new. And that's not really a challenging part of the challenging part anyone's game right like You know you're either applying power on time or not but it just seemed like the power was always there on command for both us and at this point now it seemed like neither of the mercedes fully had power at their at their fingertips and that just exacerbated a problem that we've already had ample time to observe which is that this is not overtaking machine Wants the mercedes are buried back in the pack. They've got their workout for them a little bit. I did see some replays. After the race i think from magnusson lap. He did get by a few. He had a good view of the rest of the race in the back of the grid. Yeah But yeah i think the action for most of this race was just characterized by some drs passes lap two ghastly over okon for ninth lap six over norris for fourth lap nine ghastly over viet for eighth And then the next item here last ten boy from from here at zero sergio perez. His car stops working. His steering wheel flashes oil. Kill and he has to. The side of the road was just the american foreign policy sort of mission would just weirdly enough disappeared there. But yeah as you mentioned. Danny this is the end of the season when when parts start to fail we get virtual safety car and then that turns into a safety car and we do get a lot of pits except from ricardo. That'll and leclair. Who will ricardo in federal. On hard leclair's i'm medium. But i guess they're all hoping to capitalize on their harder tyre advantage and extend but for that to work either. Your hard tire has to last for a long time which is not a given on this track or you are going to need another safety car or something weird to be able to give you the same advantage or a better one than everybody else just got otherwise. You're pitting under green and losing time because everybody else under the. It's the dreaded early early safety car where it's it's it's not good for them because it's you know it's earlier than they'd like because it's before the pay window opens up and it's also not early enough for us where it's going to really shake up the pack. It kind of makes everyone drive a little bit more conservatively. Like we love those late safety cars because it basically means lots of people are going to. Some people were off strategy now or they're on new rubber. It's it's sort of. I always feel like this has more of a downing effect on the excitement And especially on attract like this. Where i don't think safety cars are from crashes. Are all that common here. I i'm trying to remember instances where it was the case. I think a few of them have. We've had a few safety. Cars here holcomb upside down at the first laugh. Rast year rice But i'm struggling to really think there's been crashes here and has been incidents but like the so much often so many escape roads on this thing. Yeah i feel like we don't have that type of a protracted limit oriented the might have been a bit of oil off peres's cars while but that didn't seem to actually not realize the thing that it also does for these hard tire runners is that they haven't gotten any advantage by using the hard tire. Yeah everybody else..

"W up. i was very pleased. The kevin magnusson celebrating the end of the racist and thirty knots. Considering he's leaving hats and that was a nice little touch and enjoy. The team mercedes benz of in unison on the pit straight ending up facing each other. That was that was quite nice in the metro and belleek the loss of that also of ending of eras topic. I wanted to ask about with sergio. Perez and racing point and what the latest regarding the possibility presumably remote now of him joining rebel in place of alexander. Well yeah the story that we continue to eight by. Release the final piece of dr market. The that we want to learn often alex album he was very punchy off to the rice. Pilots album sounds very nobody a guy but he said he thought he'd done everything he can. He did a a decent ray state. Well i didn't think it was particularly spectacular blah. He did well to get past norris in that first and by then lewis hamilton. Majority already along the road. Safety bunch them again. He then fell about nine seconds back from hamilton but gap all the way down to one point. Five seconds at the end and it said after the race that he was quite worried. Actually the album will be able to catch pass lewis in those closing stages so became fourth which is kind of the bad minimum. You'd expect from a red bull driver. And i think that had maximum been so dominant. Today the mercedes would have tried split strategies and cover the cover him off a bit like they did imler and be able to sort of leave him with now. Let's go so. I think that it was a decent display christine. Owens said he thought is one of the strongest weekends at the scene from alex album. And we've got white and see a john. I believe you spoke after the race and he gave some other updates as well. He's playing his cards close with saying we'll make a decision in the next few days. But i think what what the decision will tell us. His you know. Just how ambitious red bull is a racing team clearing if they are serious about during the world trump should next year if all series for having to take on felt personal hamilton. Today show you why you need to calls right up there If there hadn't been the safety car period alex would have been fifteen seconds off by the time he cleared. Norris to fall back Would probably fall back. Soft tyres were them pitted and disappeared and left the room free from his eighties to do a pin on max so i think while i did a good job today i think ultimately ripple need someone quicker in that car. They need someone who shadow max. They need someone who's not disrupting the mercedes being ten seconds back. He's disrupting the mercedes by being in front of them Another thing alex. Maybe just doesn't go in his car. Maybe you need a timeout away from away from this call for next year bringing back in twenty two maybe after tory or back into the red bull but i think if ripple is serious next year they probably need someone A bit quicker. And you're still still a leap of faith to commit to alex next season. You're hoping that he can repeat what he's produced today. So why not. Try that leap of faith in paris and debut as i alluded to earlier. I haven't even given a consideration to any drivers ratings after this race because As as i said earlier that the the paddock was opened up a little bit for the the press on site. Today there was a dedicated area next to the tv penn where we could speak. The drivers read pre-arranged things. We've the the press officers. We manage sweetser. Few people just catching people's eyes. There was adamant williamsport. George russell ever for a good chat. And if they're not that so that was excellent continues into twenty and i was very amused by one of our pressroom colleague saying they it given him a felt like he had a purpose in life again After not being able to do that without actually noted down by mistake instead. I thought each day finally had a reason to live again. Did he put it on a stick. It was very sweet reaction. I thought it was a robbery museum. Anyway let's end with the fact that we have got to the end of the formula one season and you know what a good job at the f. wa and the f. one done to get this far because a point after the australian grand prix when you're looking down from the faa today including michael massey foresaw. What was going to happen with the world effectively. Shutting down all international travel. Basically stopped is real. Big danger not gain any any season over its get seventeen. Races in is a tremendous achievement. And how much credit you think. They deserve to pulling off what they did. I think that is a lot of credit. When you think that as we're speaking now of the obviously people will be listening to the podcast on the fourteenth Later but As we're speaking now it's the thirteenth so it is nine months to the day. The the australian grown pre walls postponed. Obviously you guys route that We were manned down so with. We've taken the decision not to send someone out there because that would have just made Meant me working. Twenty four seven if out gone outside. Pol pot's guy sounds fairly normal tomato me working part time working twenty four seven back but but yes i yeah friday. The thirteenth march nine months ago today they australian grand prix officially postponed those of us. Who are still in the office Just produced a preseason video something to go on youtube channel and the end of the day the c. I sat Dot come in on monday. Everyone works from home. And then that was a period where it was very uncertain. We didn't autosport magazine. Went on pause. Gp racing faced very uncertain future. All of us face very uncertain future. We didn't know whether we would have any motor racing to cover whatsoever Whether we'd still have jobs whether anything would happen And so two to actually put together a seventeen race season has been a fantastic achievement. The the faa nfl shop very early. I committed very early to making this happen. to to do it in july Involved setting up planning processes walla of europe still in lockdown. And less. make no mistake the this is. This has been a commercial disaster for f one this season it's had to hire circuits than those places. Pay the sanctioning fay so they've incurred losses. All you guys have had Things rummaged up your nose. Fear covid tests. That's eighty pounds of pop. That is a huge cost just to ensure the season happens so to have had basically thousands of tests e pounds of pop huge expense. Seventy eight thousand. The figure quotes seventy eight thousand tasks equity pop is a massive expense to go through on the fact that so very few people have actually Tested positive very few drivers and participants have tested positive. And when you look at other sports. The have perhaps not taken as seriously as i as i should as as a rugby found. I'll have to cite the episode. Just a couple of months ago. Where the head coach of exeter that same one. Both the uk premise. Ship and the heineken. cup in europe. I pined on the monday achieved either. This is all just a great waste of money. All these tasks stop doing it on the friday pretty much the entirety of another clubs team tested positive and to forfeit a match so The in downplaying. The threat of covid You you make a huge mistake. So i think the although it's been very annoying the some of us have not been able to go or if we have seen. We haven't had the access we should have done..

"Been the biggest factor than the brake ducts and as fans media will have a way can be disappointed in what's going on. I think the the the people who work for racing point going to be even more disappointed. Because i was told that they stood together at ten thousand pound biomass h if they finished the from mr strolls own pockets. I there's there's a lot of people presumably had been thinking. I'm gonna get a nice holiday with this or my family is to get something nice or my children can go to a school or i can buy a car all that sort of thing. An- it's just been snatched away from the last minute. So i feel desperately sorry for them and that may explain is video round of social cars is number one mechanic like looks like he's in tears just completely desolate of on finding out that check us out of the race in paris comes over and puts an online and ever have a hug and yeah is that human side of f one. You remember these. These are real lives as well as as we may observe and fans may chair on teams and chair on people it is there. Humans at the end of he likes being really impacted by these races buffing. We're also needs to remember. They were unlucky at times as well. If you stroll hadn't picked up punk to remove jello if peres didn't have the uk failure in bahrain which they were results that they'd had earned him. We would have had Events they would've finished third so it wasn't that you can blame the team for the stretchy mistakes with dr mistakes that came out there. Were there were factors. But you know this is. This is a former one season where everything will adds up in the end And you've got to go to accept that you see some through luck in some three three mistakes but wasn't all wasn't all the rainfall and just just at mitee cents to bring this service this on joy this level discussion about about racing point. I still maintain is a half done all season. The perez in particular has had an excellent season overall deed underperformance. Thought knocking the wing off in australia. If you qualify performances early on where he could have had a big big points racist. Say lots of things to consider but we must move on and kind of kind of wondering when it's talk about some endings of You know happened at the This race and daniel ricardo leaving reynaud. Call sign steve mcclaren veteran leaving ferrari caveat probably leaving f one. And why don't we start there leak. What was saying after the race about his future yeah. He was fairly forthright about. He said that he is now. A free agent said that when he rejoins. What was russell mcanuff. Atari that it was always a two year. Deo he just said. It was really ashamed that he's not actually been given any official word from avatar area is we. We know pretty much. The odor is going to replace him at the team. Next season that that's going to be announced probably next week and again as happened with i remember in twenty one. Brenton heart was racing for the team. And again it was. It was playing the obvious everyone that he was on his way out. But we have a final media session. And what are you going to do and was like i've got a contract for next year and just stuck to this line because not been officially told anything and it is. It is a shame when dr is can't be given that sort of decision beforehand so they can actually fully enjoy that final formula one race. Yes a shame. I think backs jenson button. Twenty fourteen in abu dhabi. I believe he had a special helmet and everything made up as well just in case because he he didn't know if it'd be his last race on us so yeah it's It's difficult for danny. Basically said he wants back in two thousand twenty two. It's come out with some quotes. I think i would be very proud of this weekend. Is qualifying. That was the best he's ever done. I believe you said at one point. He was in a top car. He could fight for a championship so he's been really trying to his stock as much as possible for a possible comeback easter. But even he was asked. You've been on and off with red bull so many times shortly. This is it and he said you can never say never but it's true it's happened for a while now. Why just i wanted to throw in an anecdote that i just remembered that may be pertinent and relevant to the discussion about keep not getting a sendoff from alpha tower and potentially well expected the. He's not coming in. I think it was on the cheese day night after we arrived w being given our green responds free to explore the hotel. I was enjoying a drink with some of the photographers from multiple images. Also staying in the same hotel and we. We were rather luckily in in in the in the club lounge on the tenth floor of this hotel. We're having a drink. Can having a chinese grow very polite and then at one point i look up and france. Tossed is in full load by sonoda. He's at one look at us and immediately turned out and again as well no idea what they were doing that he wasn't holding a piece of paper. He wasn't holding pens on it and there was no contract signing potentially in. Your thing is definitely happened. I witnessed that we've learned. Is you know the last time i was in that place. A group of us ran into a in rush. The former liverpool footballer. Did you have a good conversation with now. I i as you know. I have no knowledge of football donahue an rush walls but i let the other people be excited on my behalf but we have seen that throughout the weekend. I think that will even pitches on thursday. I believe the snowden gas went for attract franz together with a couple of apple tari mechanics and sonoda's on the pit waller weekend and he's also in the young drivers tax next week so i don't get it 'cause he got suppplies last week so it was like why not just him now. Anthony can probably be find enjoy joyous of i. Just don't understand the policy from a communications point of view. It's not knowing your ass from alabama ironman doesn't say they thought that some you know you know that the poor benighted hass pr apparatchik stewart morrison last week every single walnut. His driver dive bombed by mercedes. Maybe they thought i don't know who knows. Maybe vowed surreal. It will test positive. So we dan announced just in case. Something goes down and mercedes. Trump's our driver enhancement. Where happens a happy. It's announced while i'm flying tomorrow. That's easy were will happens to john when you're traveling and but john i come back to you and we'll talk about sebastian veteran in his ferrari era ending I was very fortunate to speak to him. In the the little bit of the product that was opened up to the media this weekend did raw the doorstep him as a as a as one of the one of our one of our colleagues. Gop earlier was hunting him as a souvenir t shirt the waved veterinary to give a very kindly gave me a few moments of his time. Said is very very emotional day. We saw the foreign mechanics clapping. Amount of the garages of guard of honour. But then the race again. It was just another underwhelming twenty twenty display but probably not really his votes considering charles declare. We'll say struggling. The ferrari being overcome on the streets and just generally ending. Twenty twenty eight has a year being a bit underwhelming. But yeah what did you make of the way. The vessel era ferrari ended Ended up drama ended is ended as well as kind of he could. He and the team could have hoped for an expected off. Pretty difficult season I think there's any real bad blood. i think that. Start the season of being difficult when serving totally wasn't being retained There was a bit of difficulties in politics. But there's been a lot of water under the bridge since then he's not been particularly comfortable. The call this season charles definitely got more out of it. There was a little face..

"Be a little bit of unpredictability as we go into next season. Well that sounds like something to look forward to but definitely far too simplistic to say that because ripple win loss races twenty twenty. He'll be at the front in twenty twenty one of the star twenty twenty one and that is quite key because of stopping me saying after the race. That rebels got stronger. That's that's always that's been east weakness over a number seasons now on the fact that there are so much of the car being carried over into twenty twenty. One does remove that sort of you. There's definitely no more excuses next year but data is for the future to decide to show. Let's let's come back to the race today. What did you make of victory us finishing seconds. We said before the weekend. And i still i still feel. This is no wins this weekend because he beats a covert recovering lewis hamilton nor is best but he doesn't have the chance to hit back against george russell's it's like no matter what he was in a hard place and he ends up not winning the race. That mercedes would have come into expecting to win before the tire staff. And also the angie as well but yeah what what. What did you think of what us today. Yeah much same. Is louis quite anonymous. And we had a couple of times over the radio. His his engineer. Ricky saying like push now try and cut back gap if he can he never really did and i think that he was ultimately stopping your son another level really today. Compared to where mercedes were by the one thing we can take away from this weekend is just the extra level of support that appears in the say these are giving us and he said after qualifying on saturday when we had that right a message from toto wolff that basically come about by chance between tokyo and battery and bossa saying i need more support base wants be hearing from you guys more so i think that's why we had maybe a bit more from toyota a bit more from ricky while during the race and i think that just shows that it's clear the face what they saw him by. We've got talked about this. We can't just let it slide and be like oh he's finally it's just one race or whatever they are actually really looking now as being a flashpoint in relationship to invite you batas and mercedes because also when they could end up. I think whatever happens. Come twenty two. I think that. Ob bahrain will be back on as being very important race for web. Decision is taken. So so i think that's i think that's interesting. I think yeah. Former today was he was he was quitting the lowest which again is is no mean fate as you said he's got covid so it's kind of like well was actually that good. Have you very intrigued. See what you give them on the drive ratings because it was it was decent and he did not qualify team as well. So i've thought about it's been it's been flat out for a reason we should get to Later on in the past. And john. The as i said in the introduction to the fight for third in the construction championship really after a fairly early on in the race was the main focus tones narrative for even that was somewhat of an anti-climax because of peres's retirement launch strode able to make any progress and mclaren being in such a strong position. Leon and as we said the track was never gonna lend itself to you know the the cause that qualify behind the mclarens in the in the racing points being able to get back to them. So what did you make of the outcome of that particular fight. Yeah peres wasn't gonna make the progress. He made loss we can know. Really slater slate get going You start me up a little bit for the engine shutdown. And then he was once he was out of it and stroll just didn't just uninspiring afternoon really didn't pay much fighting him Mclaren's control is a bit of nervousness about the potential of colossians penalty. But i in the end the gap to daniel ricardo was say big anyway the think any any scale of penalty. If you've got one would have made much difference and in the end racing point probably on measure had the third quickest cough much this season a fitness. The mclaren was quick arrival The season mclaren has made more of their more of the opportunities in terms of two drivers going points. All the time strategy was good But we must also not forget Race point loss fifteen points at the first race because of the controversy with the pink and in the end that made all the difference. I do wonder if racing point new at the time that these fifteen points would cost place in the to jump ship. You say might have kicked up a bit more of a stink. Yeah that was gonna be my next point. I'm caught his. I mean how much we're racing point be during losing those fifteen points for having taken the decision to design the p twenty but then at the same time you know it might not necessarily have been in the battle if it hadn't decided to do what it dealings of copying them's eighties car. Yep i think. I thought i could bryce an out and and for a long time. I did and it was a logical decision to make. They've had the missile eighties powertrain for so long and about it. It made sense to adopt the mercedes. So the lower reich philosophy that the mercedes has unto clone the car for what they thought was a single season. I i suppose the tablets that we're kind of looking back and we're looking a lot of it through hindsight and when they set about designing that car they thought there'd be just doing one season with this car before moving onto the next it was. It was a means of sort of forming a closer relationship ship with mercedes. it was a main. It was a shortcut com to competitiveness. It was a means of ensuring that the new avenue saw some return on their investments. And an also let's not forget. The andrew green said this time a year ago that been wanting to do this sort of thing for a long time. They just didn't have the money. So when lawrence stroke comes in with a little bag of gold and says he got voice. I have a guy with this. Let's see what you can do. They're eager to demonstrate what they can do so so they made a pretty decent car that the the trouble is that the strangest thing was for a team for so many years has been able to extract the maximum for every opportunity they get this has been a season. They have the third fastest car and did not extract every single opportunity. They got and that something that will be kicking themselves for. Yeah i fully agree with. And i think that is probably more than the break dot. So that's what they're probably be more annoyed about you look monzo along stroll was in a really obsessions. When that rice fluffed the great star and then blow it completely and finish that you look at stroz run a full money your time. From covert and alex now he spoke the other day for postseason interview about the impacts of dealing with covert for that round of races. But it was the point. Scott says paris was pretty staggering and in the final standings. It's fifty points between the two of them peres is fourth in. The championship is done a superb season. Sco points in every single rights. Why he's got to the finish and stroh just hasn't formed and. I think we saw today. How paul long. Stroh wasn't happy. I i thought it was. I think he's had a good season in a lot of ways. I think he's two podiums. Were very well earned. But i think today the way he might such very heavy weather. It's quite easter called to quote. Patrick head is saying yes patrick. It sorry the way he he struggled so much whereas all the other drives ahead just picked that love pretty easy. Even vessels said over the radio. I'm gonna get eaten up here and strode struggled and struggled and struggled than that. That was really disappointing. I think yeah. I think the there are lots of positives. Racing point can take from this season. And i that the decision scour the pink mercedes was a really great day was at the time really low risk for possibly a very high reward and a nearly one third in the championship is giving them a race when it's giving them a couple of extra podiums as well but the fact that they haven't base mclaren who for the most of the season were slow a team. I think that's you. They've got to look at these missed opportunities. They've had and say. How do we let this happen. Because yeah i think. That's he'd been the biggest factor than the brake ducts and as fans media will have a way can be disappointed in what's going on. I think the the the people who work for racing point going to be even more disappointed. Because i was told that they stood together at.

"Shitty had been racing. Something so wolf was asked about on saturday and he said that decision lies solely with the driver is up to them to decide on their fitness and if they feel prepared to race and lewis. Hamilton is a racing driver. Of course he wants to race which which makes sense so. Yeah i think have been happy just to have got through. Its come away with third-placed me and that's that's a maybe quiet. Understated way said end such dominant championship yet. But to the same end. I think he can be pleased to have got through it and come home in one piece and hopefully now can just spend the winds are fully recovering and be back in full spirits for the season opener in australia which He's he's committed to doing because i think it was the emirates where he sort of threw a hand. Grenade into the press by saying done. If i'm going to be year twenty twenty one. He was saying the exact opposite in the press conference after this race saying he's hoping economics new mercedes deal wrapped up by christmas and he hopes discussions will start this week. Do you have any insight. Inter- do you have any insights into that league. Yes wolf was asked about that in the press conference and he said much the same thing they wanted to get it all done in the next ten to fourteen days. Have everything wrapped up for before christmas. He was he said that it was always a great. That would always sit down and talk once sites up but because lewis covert that kind of delayed everything two weeks or so. and then i asked offset each Talks about he talks about louis being free agent. He was law. You make it sound like he's going to be sign up by baseball team or something. And i said well you're free agent as well. We almost going on with bill contract. What's happening and all he said was. Watch this space and then kind of smirks. Little bits be quite interested. If there's any news coming up soon about His exact role moving forward with it seen indeed. Well we await that vote with bated. Breath code is winning the final race of the twenty twenty season. Does that mean we're going to have a battle. The front between the two teams twenty twenty one barrier your mind the majority of his car. I think question who wanna only said it'll be sixty percent over. This weekend will be carried over into next season so presumably. We're can have a great fight for the next year. And if we don't play me oh great well on the face of it yes but maybe not so much i. I suppose it's a good thing. That red bull have been able to do an awful lot of learning about that car and basically rewind on us on quite a few of the upgrades. They've added to it so it's been a painful season for them but they do seem to be in a place where they've got it dialed in. The question is whether it will work all circuits. That is something we we still don't know all all we can say about. Red bull is the once again. They began the season with a car that wasn't in the right place. They put upgrades on it. Which did not necessarily work. They had to revert back some of our former colleagues points Commit to print inside this season's being a bit of a journey of discovery for them. And so maybe it's actually a good thing that the regulations have been sort of semi frozen for next season because it means i talked have to sort of pratt about doing exactly the same thing next year. So maybe covers has actually despite all the beast and we've gone through in two thousand and twenty as actually handed us a little bit of a golden ticket to a bit more competitive thousand twenty one arts still be mindful of the fact. That mercedes hasn't been pushing on with development on his current cars. We've got a slight illusion of where the performance of the mercedes. The red bull Rebels pushed on making changes. We we've seen a significant trying to rerun the last two races. They moved their waste gay exhausts and went to single pillar Rear wings are obviously a lot of a-rod work at the rear of the car So as as i pushed on mercedes decided not to bring a raft of updates to his cartoon focusing back to the factory so where. That mercedes currently isn't if the parts that is working now to track it could even further at the right. So i wouldn't read too much into it. One of the key things will be what impact these floor changes half next year. I think the more you speak to engineers the moist speak. Two teams appears to be a fairly innocent chopping off. The side of the floor could actually have quite significant shakeup. Yeah it's quite blunt. Instrument isn't take it tapered the main the main elements alva. I think the thing that's going to hit. The hardest is is the bit that seems quite innocent. Which is the tapering of the floor towards the rails on the loss of design have described it as a blunt instrument The outcome of which no one really knows. So we've seen a lot of teams pushing very very hard on development through through this season in the height that they can spend our tokens on other things and some of them are doing it for different reasons. So you have mclaren. He's been pushing very very hard on development guide to a whole new front and philosophy. Because they know they're going to have spent after spend tokens on the adaptation of that. Carter the mercedes engine. You got other people holding back. You've got some teams that haven't been able to develop for lack of money. Say the i think the net effect is going to be a little bit of unpredictability as we go into next season. Well that sounds like something to look forward to but definitely far too simplistic to say that because ripple win loss races twenty twenty..

"It just wasn't enough and esteban on ended up getting knocked out as well so tricky session for mclaren's rivals yet big. I reynaud were really quite disappointed and surprised by that. Because they've they've had that form really fluctuate. I think in recent weeks and to get him in bahrain. Even the rising point of the many points that was a really good boost for a nice so keeping the hope alive little bit but yet to this weekend mean to fade so bobbing qualifying was really religious. Pointing ricardo's such a strong qualified while and really wanted to go out on a high in but he pawn instruments law. This is not how. I wanted things to be spending. But he won't give. Everything's smarmy defy as much c- can and on offline i was actually. I decided he's out qualified. Down your kado in dry conditions. The only other time came at the steering grocery when it was really really writing. Hawed so yeah. It's a disappointing result for them. I think the it's is going to be tricky because as one rights as well the fact that if they all starting on the mediums and it may be a little bit harder to try and get any undercut. all the causes had also on mediums. So maybe try and go and soft sincere with that dave. Yes it's gonna be. It's going to be difficult for them. And i think that yeah i think. Really not five third. They've just maybe a couple of times not been quite on when they needed. Spay and yeah. I think the damage is already done before this weekend. But i think today really does appear to of the final night in that coffin and always something that definitely keep it on throughout the race tomorrow which also be an interesting battle out the front as we said with stopping ahead of the mercedes cars and let's let's end leak back with the leaders particularly victory. What acid lineup seconds. It was really. It was really interesting this session because we sort of said the other night no win situation. He's he's reputations taking quite a hit after being reasonable beaten in the race or that we never got to see how it return. Outthe in guam prairie applicants george russell and and then lewis hamilton coming back but has qualifies him ahead but it'd be easy for for people to say well lewis still recovering from covid. Even though we don't know how much as but it's you know. As i said. I think he's a bit of a no win. Scenario does well. miss downtown. Kovic does badly compounds his position mercedes. So that's why. I was really interesting to hear toto wolff himself. Get on the radio to brought us ahead of his phone run in q. Three or he said. Give it all you have to batas and do did. We'll give an explanation of why he chose that quite wherever team principal to get directly on the blower as it were to driver massively in particularly tysun wolf. You only ever talk to the drivers off to the right so many say congratulations. And even that's quite rare as well actually just see them afterwards and give them a hug. Well done but yes. It's him on the radio. I think from went. Oh hang on and it's quite weights. Be asking both tulsa fans who software say. Oh why did you ever radio cokes. As part of normal thing but also explain that basically they had had some talks in recent days just about how they can support each other off spinner a rough period four value batas. And i think he's done a lot of soul-searching of the posse days after such a. What was ultimately radio defeats george russell and bahrain. I said he didn't look at any social media any news or anything Which is a shame. Because i'm sure he loves all the concept. Paul not spot dot com. But he yeah he wants to get head down and tyson will prevail that they had some talks in recent days about how they can better support each other and apparently bought us. I want more feedback from you. I want you to be giving me more sort of messages and telling me what's going on. So i think protectorates come over the radio. That was a good show for mercedes. They were like able to reacts and give boss starts support when he needs it and yeah it was nice to hear and it just again shows that is something title will spike about on friday that there is the ultimate unconditional support for volleyball task at mercedes and that there's no way he's going to be off twenty twenty one or anything like that because they fully support him he's driver and i want to bring out the best in him and i think it's nice to see them acting on that and they do want to help them basically get out of this slump. Maybe on the season with a good race went absolutely well. We shall see how the ebi grand prix plays out tomorrow league. We should leave the puck class.

"For the second time year as he beats salary revolt ass on the fauna runs. in rate. There is hamilton third his return following his absence of contracting corona virus. Just ahead of mclaren's. London in a brilliant drive when intrum qualifies colossians genius so joining me to discuss all of that more sports ephraim reporter luke smith luke a different result for change in qualifying twenty. What did you make today. It's nice to be rising. Someone different for once. I mean i respect the mercedes guys and very impressive. What they do but yeah amazing. We have the maximum cap on paul for the first time since brazil last year. I find it remarkable that only is third f one pole position given these being around for so long now which is crazy about a young man of twenty three years old but yeah he's been around a while and tony three poles is quite something but probably says more about mercedes and does about max's Influences but yet today he's been getting closer and closer all season we talked. I think quite a few qualifying sessions recently. Where he's being a tenth. Say when it's been quite exciting to the final runs. But then i thought it was a really fantastic end qualify. Having all three of those drivers go we saw hamilton. Beat it's time boss are saying they're going to be hamilton. And then max just a little bit of the class so yeah really great qualifying sense into the season as well to have a fantastic clippings off absolutely and joined the zoom press conference. We saw shook things up on our approach. Reporting because there's been a little bit of paddock access opened up to the onsite media here. In w off trying to flag down drivers managed to get a they would challenge the club. Which about later as you went along to the zoom session for the top three. And how do we shop and reacts because he'd already joked about walking off with the place jab he didn't need it today is on pole positions Yeah he's he's never even winnings going right. He's never the most of free flowing talkative as want. And how was his actions getting his first. Polar twenty twenty did immediately say it's quite nice to be sitting in a different chat today squarely in the middle of to the left of the pulses. Yeah no he was. He was in a good mood. Actually he was quite talkative for once which is quite rare and there were a lot of questions were lewis hamilton as we'll get onto because that was his first time fating the media sentences retired. But max was. Yeah he was he was upbeat about things. He said he felt. We had everything. All together was really happy with how it closed off at the end. No one absolutely perfect lap silvery one good enough and yeah he was he was in a good mood and he said he hopes they can provide some good motivation to write poll going into the winter. Because ultimately i've spent in this league and closer and closer to mercedes and it's kind of a similar story. We have every yet rebelled. Uis tend to make this sort of late season surge and cut the gap and then we get to melbourne and hamilton's on paul behalf second again but we've got we've got to wait and see for that so let's read too much into this result from red bull arena definitely does satisfaction they can take from today and the fact that i believe the last five races in abu dhabi have been one from postition as well so it does give ripple a really great chance try and close out the season with a victory. He also explained how he's handled stock in the cockpit briefly during key one from wide pin and said the up again basically explaining his hand became jams basically explained his hand became jams between his knee and the side of the cockpit which wasn't ideal but he managed to get it free in the end they get through and obviously gone state pulse. I yeah very good day for stopping indeed. Absolutely and it's it's quite tough to predict whether he'll be able to hang on in the race tomorrow because The friday practice long runs much to my annoyances auto sports kwame prieta crunching nizer numbers that the teams late in the session was rather ruined. My kim. you aikins. Alfa america fire for the selfishly of its but fortunately i'm allowed to jacob about that because there was a handle or something. You had initially plane kimmy then. I thought that was unfair. So yeah the customer ferrari power unit is probably to blame where what caused the issue. Certainly the mass amount of flames yesterday. And but yeah. That's that is very hard to see where the team stacks up on the nuns and it but in any case probably wouldn't have been much of a comparison because mercedes opposites put back on the two thousand twenty one peretti's but what we did see rebel. It's quite strong is often thousand and friday as you say the crucial crucial thing. This time around is he's got track position and that's probably going to be pretty key because the basically the prediction is that it's definitely going to be a one stop up already. Recommend the optimum strategies eighteen laps on the medium which is what we're stopping in teams as we'll be starting on as well saints and charleston club as well. I'm not so that's the drive. Through oversee everybody from downwards can choose what they be eighteen laps in the medium before moving onto the hearts for thirty seven laps. Either say is possible to do one stop a starting on the soft which the rest of the top ten. We'll be doing at gopher guy for fourteen laps on those and then forty one laps on the harvard is slightly slower to stop appropriate ruled out because sacrificing trap position. As course famously. It's been in my mind. We can because fernando alonzo is blasting around in he when he drove roaring twenty ten in the world soccer because he couldn't get past renai. Say you don't wanna be stopping too many times. Basically if ever stopping instead in the pit stops he's got a very good chance of winning the rights. The problem rep of got is the tomb sadi's behind then mclaren on the great. Then the other red bull. So in all likelihood they could potentially mercedes chinese to card vantage to attack this happen and see if they can get head around the slopes if overtaking is as difficult as it usually is. Let's come owns a mercedes now. Teams trackside engineering director. Andrew said that it doesn't seem like we've managed to land the soft compounding quite the right window today which is what so of their explanation was for mercedes not being his customary position at the end of qualifying and be. How did the drivers reacts what it. What it lewis hamilton. Say he's back. He's been defeated. But i guess for him..

"How's that yeah. I think i just get the sense that everyone's a little bit tired now. The drivers will be kind of low energy teams alone energy of louis. Louis mentioned a few futile nikolay problems. Today we're all tired I think it would have been great. To have ended the season with a saikia grump rage that brilliant climax to the season would have given us a huge feel-good factor for the winter. But what ago And then i'm sure you'll be tired shattered tomorrow night on sunday night Wake up monday morning. Counting down the days to the australian grand prix it was ever thus or preseason testing as well as always a lot of fun but you mentioned hamilton Having a couple of nearly two issues He has percents mercedes for this weekend. Having delivered gave it negative covid nineteen tests. I should stress but it hasn't been an easy return to the cockpit. How's it he has had very Sessions with with issues in them. Yes a him in he admitted is a little bit Kinda rusty in in first practice was now. There's a like break problem of think. Mercedes to took took thirty forty minutes maybe to get to the bottom of this. Break system replaced the master cylinder. Go back out there. Second section building up his speeds we saw in the pits he started outside outside-half with some suspected gearbox or clutch issue. Not quite sure what that was Just nikolay things but had up their testing as few teams than twenty twenty one bits. Today's well saving. Everyone's looking very much for looking forward to next season. These flow changes diffuses changes breakdown. Changes are going to. i think. We'll we'll actually shake things up more than people think the slot minor chains chopping off a small section the floor. But i think that's been a very very important part of 'cause aerodynamics as i'm sure you're well-versed in gpo so a lot of work on that I think lewis. He's just happy. Happy to be back probably important of him as well to be to be back if you had missed this race. It would windsor of people. Speculating about you know. He's not really interested in formula. One will he come back. The same county. Full was thing but back put all that to bed. Yeah he certainly has an a civil situation because he's had the time out obviously kindness only two weeks and back in the past. Obviously drivers wasted Took a week off per match fit. And he's been out with with covert a so of layoff He said he wasn't feeling to gets. It's get to see him back in the and we did have a few issue issues. L. sweat in the field of stops daniel ricardo. Fb one george russell's williams smoking and fb to and can be records out from that scene after spontaneously combusted down straits towards the end of the second session. I think we take respect about drivers and teams being tied. But i think the the friday engines were russell on. Yeah i think a lot of teams have started to get towards the edge of the life of these engines. The three power units for the season We saw clegg's ample sergio perez so bahrain grand prix. Md uk goes bang which therefore takes a relevance of the engine out so elastic elastic answer revert to a Older engine which fire had enough managed left but the these turbo hybrids. Don't perform as well. You know if the first thousand classes do their final thousand kilometers is performance degradation which has improved over the years. But it's not as best as a few tempts up and you can't run it as aggressively towards the end of their life so this weekend brace important to the decision despite battling for third place 'cause sham ship despite there are some difficult for taking this track is not the easiest on the calendar but they've taken taken the engine hit for sergio they fill guarantee him getting to the finish on sunday. He'll be run into the max. Go to last one race can rather than six or seven Some sure he'll be quite quite feisty on sunday charging through the field. But i think a lot of teams. We saw donnie at a few problems this morning. kinney's spectacular blow up. So i wonder if son sunday There'll be a lot of nursing going on out there. I suspect the certainly will be As you said you know we're in the final bay. I wouldn't be surprised. A couple more power penalties between now and sunday to be honest with the epa. We'll see how that plays out as you say perez from the back of the grid he'll win. Nc shirley yeah. I think he's got to go to tough tally. Now because i think he was the thing the stats people have poured over. And i think he's the first person to win from loss on the first lap of a race i think jenson button famously. One was last midway through that. Canadian grand prix. He won So if surgery is going to try and do some super record. Like being last quarter's the race or something and then charging three to win. Because it's not. It's not the lowest position the anyone's one. From i think john watson did it from twenty-second in in long beach. Nine hundred eighty one. Was it so obviously. We have a short grit now. That's the one stature. Have on that upset story. T the other ends of the grid or say mandatory. First glimpses of shoe macaroni pass. John didn't really see too much him but to the eaten throw off the right i guess. He acquitted himself quite well. It's quite hard to to tell especially in happy one. I think the fact that it was fairly anonymous that You know we didn't see the barrio. We didn't see any spectacular lockups. We didn't see any spins We didn't see him sex of the pace of said a lot. About how kind of good solid it was. You just got on the program Did the job done. Some unique sim preparations with ferrari You would have had this outing at the nurburgring. If it wasn't in the alpha but would have had the outing there wasn't for the weather So perfectly respectable job. Good for him to get at least a free practice session under his belt. Such minimal preparation heading into next season Preseason testing obviously is One half days each driver. There is the young driver test which has some old drivers in next week We'll we'll we'll more monash per every every kind of session any drive can get this state especially for rookies and just get your thoughts on the well. Lonzo has been traveling around in his. Oh championship winning run from two thousand five and the relatively youthful age of thirty nine. Hey will be in the young driver. Test Don ricardo won't get the chance mclaren. Gene you went for for our inspection to win for racing points faster demoss neither probably for our. It would been easy to get caught. Sign senior into the car Was you make of all of these Old hands coming in for what was essentially space to be a test session for the younger driver. I can understand.
Lewis Hamilton returning to F1 for Abu Dhabi GP after negative Covid-19 tests
"Yeah let. Let's come back to two and he released a video earlier on this week so giving an update on how things with going those the first time anybody heard from him speaking publicly since the needs to be positive test was announced and he didn't sound totally healthy and firing all cylinders. He sounded exactly like a person who's had to sort of model. We hope case of corona virus would expect a bit under the weather but you know he seems fairly upbeat but yet how how badly or how much as appropriate for repeated word. How much do you think that impacts his performance this weekend having to recover from from the owners.

"abu dhabi" Discussed on The Autosport Podcast
"Tonight to this topic's more sports reporter alex smith. Now we're gonna start with a bit of breaking news and we went to the listeners. As well. Although i'm sure by the time has been edited and published by people read hopefully not as com. Which is the learning has been cleared to race. In this weekend's event to we back alongside actually bought at mercedes for george russell will return to williams. And i'm going to read out the mercedes statement you force that we all understand the fox that have been released so far and the statement says the mercedes g. China's efan team is pleased to confirm that lewis. Hamilton will drive the team in this begins. Appetite grand prix. Louis tested negative for covid nineteen on wednesday prior to completion of his self isolation period in. Bahrain enabled him to travel to cuba on thursday afternoon. Any tested negative on arrival lewis therefore completed the protocols required by the faa as entry to the product. Tomorrow i will be able to take part in the race weekend george. Russell will return to williams racing for the final event of the twenty twenty season. So what's your actions that breaking news and also you can use plain how the day so played out because it wasn't play really what would happen. I mean the track. I was hearing rumors. That hamilton was in abu dhabi already. Tallies that was often that but you know when it comes to these kinds of speculation. You get these folks things flying about benevolence. He's back on a. Yeah what what do you make it up. It's been a day on that front. Because i think a lot of people and lot fans in particular kind of expensive mercedes like this morning to say lewis will or won't be racing this weekend as we've talked about right the way through the lead up to this race ever since louis detach posted. We kind of ponder when he could return they actually had up until right before qualifying game in the car if they really wanted to. We saw that with how come back when he stepped in greek. So really i think it was kind of hidings. Nothing people were waiting for some news immediately and it was ready case say dis waiting to find out what was going on and they always made clear the if louis detest negative than he would be racing this weekend. That is now happened and the time line and stuff. i mean. that's something you can't rush. I mean you've got to wait until he returned next result. Dan get around the various century requirements for abu dhabi. And the yes side and lockdown your dealing with as well alex and it's all sort of it was never going to be as simple as that. You're saying yes or no. So i think yeah it's been. It's been away day on that front. In terms of awaiting around and a friend of mine is a f one journalist for one the tabloid newspaper. He's kind of what's the story of today because nothing's really happened now has dropped. I'm sure just after their filing deadline as well unfortunately but still. It's yeah. it's a good story. I think it's good ceelo's back in the car. Obviously it is nice. Thought the world champion combat out the race. The season the bahrain. First time wasn't philosophy soil within this year. But you do after you Yeah i think. Spare thought for george russell and jack aitken russell back in the williams after coming so close to winning on his very fast rise from the cities now going to be shooting for points at the absolute maximum and Yeah for jack ikin. He's already he's going to be joining safa. Van dorn played some caller. Gt this weekend. Probably very good very good. Well yes i don't think lewis hamilton. We'll have in squeezed through a gap in the vote. Block erected over the over the right that lead into the track runs just by the track. I imagine he was whisked in full for an potentially for secrecy often end to speculation. But but yeah. I mean i. It was interesting today because as he said. This wasn't confirmed until very late in the day. Erin abba w just gone or it was just coming up to ten pm when the news was released and that meant the eighteen russell did the media. Day did the media. Gt's all the teams. Ira save last weekend. Williams and russell mercedes and it was was an awkward. I mean i mean. I eighty session russell take everything in stride. Just explain you know. Yet if louis test negative then about backer williamsburg so far i've been totally preparing to you. Know to be racing. The w eleven this weekend going over things with mornings and the engineers and getting ready that he didn't do a track walk with the mercedes engineers. Just but let's just maybe that's part of the normal process. And but what was jack. Aitken like in the in the in the william session. How is he sort of looking ahead to a weekend of uncertainty at the time much the same i mean he said he was completely in the dark and obviously he was as eager to get back in the car and prove himself again and jack was privately quite disappointed actually with how barring went because it was a pretty clean weekend nearly qualified nicosia's fee until the final runs key one and then beaten and then in the right. He's driving a pretty pretty clean rights until his mistake. The brought out the safety car and then obviously sort of wheels in motion for everything else happened at the end of the skater. Impre but he. I think he was really excited to get another challenge in that car and to really prove what you can do a he Yeah right by the media sessions. He said the done wisconsin on show this weekend. Obviously a once a rise in the dark is anybody is and it was just a big waiting game. Ready to learn what lewis condition wasn't whether he had a positive or negative test results. I it's Yeah i think you've got to fail. bit disappointed. four him because it's not the way he wanted his single showing an f. Wants to go. And i think if he wanted sort of look other rights program's stuff next year. It's go with two stars on the about rob them wanna be obviously help things but Yeah instead he's going to be back in that reserve role for the rest of the weekend and who knows. I mean that might be the last we see of him informed one which is crazy we. We really don't know what the future holds fame now. So it's yeah. I think a bit of a pill. Bits of bitter of built swallow. I'm sure definitely and of course we wish we're striking with whatever happens going forward into twenty twenty one. yeah let. Let's come back to two and he released a video earlier on this week so giving an update on how things with going those the first time anybody heard from him speaking publicly since the needs to be positive test was announced and he didn't sound totally healthy and firing all cylinders. He sounded exactly like a person who's had to sort of model. We hope case of corona virus would expect a bit under the weather but you know he seems fairly upbeat but yet how how badly or how much as appropriate for repeated word. How much do you think that impacts his performance this weekend having to recover from from the owners. I think it's definitely something that has to be taken into account and talking to people who've had covet and i think even for drivers i believe space salon strauss today for example about the impacts of long covert. I think they call it in. Covid falcons sort of the idea of the even off detests negative.

Branson Beats Musk in Human Hyperloop Test
"A week ago a man and a woman got into a metal pod sat down on vegan leather seats and strap themselves for a trip. Unlike any other the pod was then levitated by magnets and shot through vacuum tube at one hundred seven miles per hour in roughly six seconds. Talk about a wild ride and it was actually an historic first. The two brave souls are employees of virgin hyperloop and they were the first humans to test. The new technology virgin hyperloop focuses on the high speed transportation concept billionaire. Richard branson's virgin group is a minority investor before testing the system with humans virgin hyperloop conducted more than four hundred unmanned tests. Hyperloop has been called the future of transport. The systems are designed to be giant low pressure tubes floating pods or suspended by magnets and carry passengers from point. Eight point at theoretical speeds of up to seven hundred miles per hour. Here's how it works. The pod network uses magnetic levitation two sets of magnets both repel the pod in the tube and help move it forward and the vacuum system used to help accelerate to high speeds is similar to the system. You use to send your documents to the teller at your bank. drive through. Popular mechanics explains inside the pod. G forces were more than three times that of an airplane but the passengers said the ride was smooth. New york times reported ultimately groups like virgin hyperloop hoped to deploy the technology to transport people and cargo. The speed would reduce the time. It takes to get from los angeles to san francisco to less than an hour. The times report says that's faster than a direct flight. When the hyperloop debuts it will be the first truly new transportation technology and more than one hundred years the independent reports branson isn't the only billionaire dabbling in hyperloop technology. You may have heard of a fellow named elon musk. He's credited with conceptualizing the technology nearly a decade ago and he is boring company. Boring as in boring tunnels underground has a test tunnel california that it's using to test. Its hyperloop and other technology. Each year musk's spacex holds a hyperloop pod competition where university students compete to make prototypes of high speed transportation. Pods last year. Students from the university of munich won the competition there. To um hyperloop pod set a new speed record for the competition of nearly three hundred miles per hour a longer track could help teams reach even higher speeds. Musk says virgin. Hyperloop is already designed to route between london. Borough branson says the uk route would be quicker and cheaper than the high speed rail system being put in now. The independent reports and richard geddes co founder of the hyperloop advanced research partnership believes that. There's an opportunity for a hyperloop. System linking abu dhabi and dubai in the united arab emirates. For now the hyperloop is still a theoretical transport system with more than a dozen companies working on bringing it reality and when you have competitive billionaires behind for bragging rights about being first to market things have a way getting done

Talking Arab-Israeli Peace with Acting Consul General Israel Nitzan
"Israel needs on is a veteran. Israeli. Diplomat who has served in a diverse array of postings from Egypt to the UN to his current role as Israel's acting consul general in New York. There's been a lot of news out of Israel lately and Acting Consul General Nitzan joins us now to help us break it down and to share his country's view Israel. Thank you so much for joining us. Thank you very much. Now we wanted to have. You on this week in particular because Israel has brand new diplomatic ties with the UAE and bunkering and you are one of the relatively few Israeli diplomats who actually already has experience representing Israel in an Arab country what do you think actual practical on the ground peace with the in both rain might look like is it going to be similar to the Israel Egypt relationship that you know up close or is it going to be something totally different? Of. All I. think that it is different. This agreement is an important milestone region undermine stolen today in our Middle East. So we strategically and regionally, it strengthens our actually formalize ties within our relationship with very important regional glares in the Arab. Gulf. Sunni Arab countries who first of all perceived a threat posed by Iran we showed the perception of the threat posed by Iran and we agree also on the ways to address this threats basically I think that in the last few weeks I, think that both Israel and needs Sunni Arab neighbors in the Gulf called on the International. Community to continue in the maximum pressure on Iran. So this is at least from this angle. Secondly, you mentioned Egypt and I think that in many ways yes it is going to be a different kind of beast i. think it seems that is much warmer piece. I think that the key to peace in our region is encouraging more and more people to people engagement, and this is what we've seen in the last few weeks when people from the Gulf on social media, it seems clear that there are thrilled about the relationship very excited, actually encouraging and initiating a dialogue with Israelis This is great and I think that this is the key to any future of peace in our region especially with our neighbors that people people engagement is so key and it's so interesting. I mean Israel has had peace with Jordan for. Twenty Five Years Twenty six years peace with Egypt for even longer there's a little bit of Sinai tourism but like it's not a thing for Israelis to you know drive to Amman for lunch right? Do you think Israelis are going to fly to Dubai? Abu Dhabi. Fly to Montana and kind of explore the Arab, Gulf. I think definitely, yes. Of course, we are in a different reality to covid nineteen but I think that the expectation is already an ongoing dialogue between Israelis and moralities over zoom Israeli universities, research centres startups have already reached out and initiated this very important dialogue with their colleagues into golf. They'll talking about basically using our innovative meaning both Israel and the UAE innovative spirit. You know the the needs of people and I think that this is also one thing that is clear that the idea here in this piece that we prioritize both Israel in the UAE, prioritize the needs. Of their people and this is the first step you know to promote the regional peace no. As we said, there is an ongoing dialogue between the peoples between Israeli civil society between startups between companies in Israel I. think that You you mentioned my experience in Egypt and I think that what? I know from my experience in Egypt, the pieces for our job I need must be nurtured, and in many ways, the key to everything is education especially educating the younger generation basically educating them to accept the other two except the different to accept Israel as a legitimate neighbor. In many ways, I, think that the secret to success of any peace in our region will be found in the media and the textbooks, and basically these two means educating people today first of all in the media forming an encouraging public opinion supportive of peace. And also the textbooks educating the leaders of tomorrow through schools, universities, and basically educating them about accepting the other accepting Israel as a neighbor as A. Member neighbor-.

UFC featherweight champ defends title in split decision
"I Will Fight Island was officially christened tonight for the UFC in Abu. Dhabi there was no baptism to be had in the main event of UFC two fifty one. What's going on everybody? Welcome to the official. You have to fifty one post fight. Show here on, May, finding dot com I'm Mike Heck location this week from Boston Massachusetts visiting the parents this weekend. That is Jose Jose. Main Event Kamara, who's been retains a welterweight title against Whore Mazal. Challenger looked pretty darn good in that first round. I'm pretty surprised that judges gave in that first round, but it was the much fresher champion that was able to sort of chip away at the always game, or hey mazda throughout the fire Ab. Fresher champion but Komo. Zeman was basically been in camps since beginning of this year, despite was like Ben Booked and booked in both supposed to fight earlier this by giving burns, and also muzzle steps in, so yes, he's finally fresher because he he's had the full camp and everything but I think Kamara wasn't one hundred percent in that fight, either considering this long extended, Feick at Ala, similar to twenty Ferguson with all these these these fights falling apart, but Kamara who's been one nonetheless, might not have been the most exciting fight. I saw a couple of tweets complaining about the fight and I really take that. I felt it was a lot of fans that were on this very muzzle hype train. He's on the video game cover on this baptism round the resurrection Super Necessary Punches bef tile, and that they were expecting violence, even mice I myself said fight between WHO's minimize well probably has a higher chance of ending in a violent way, but it did not come out who's been one I had them winning all five rounds the first round I guess. Didn't really matter to me. Who won that? I still come who's been what at least four of the rounds comfortably? The people complain about. The foot stopped the wrestling the headbutts. That stuff will come out. Who's been did what he had to do to win. That's exactly why I thought he would. Take, her might as well because all the time Mazal taking this fight on short notice. Kamara also took this fire. On short notice gets an extra a completely different fighter between Gilbert Burns as well. It's completely rechange leftist camp Had his new trevor wittman is corn for the first time fighting the guy all this bad blood is in the air all the pressures on him, and perform a like we ourselves, said all the pressures on who's Madonna not not a whole lot on Mazal, but at the end of the day. Who's been doing what he had to do? I didn't have a problem with the way fought. Might not have been the most exciting, but if I was going to pick up, predict away whose men would pull this off. This is exactly how I thought he would do it. Yeah, when you get a fight like this and you have a guy as hot as MAS. Bat brings in a lot of the casual fan base. Does your watch? As many events as we watch, and some of the hardcore fans watch everything so most people expected this fight to go exactly that way I thought the first row was going to be the most interesting round, obviously, because of Mazda was going to get it done. He's probably going to have to do it in the first five minutes, and this is the fire. We got like Mara. Who's been defends his title. For the second time. It was another classic who's been like performance and he gets a one-sided win and highly anticipated main event so in the end. We like to talk about the overall letter grade, but it felt like just kind of looking at the time slot when we're all said and done. We're getting ready to hit record here. We're just like man this is this is super late like I feel like the card and the whole night in a weird way. Wet Kinda slow did it not. started off really really quickly. Might just. Like I feel like the first few flew by and all of a sudden I had been watching fights for two and a half three hours and I'm like wow, this fight is cars going quickly I like this pace, and then we the main card and Amanda he boss comes in, and just submits patriots immediately i. wish went exactly as I expected, but then there was decision with Rosen on drugs, and then even Yawn Aldo finish, but it was in the fifth round, so there's still basically fought for twenty five minutes, and then we get twenty five minutes, Vulcanology Holloway and then we get twenty five minutes of in Mazda, also of these we've seen. We saw that graphic on the screen like. All the cards are three title fights, and like we used to fourteen had like Woodley Maya in Jones, a cormet and Cyborg Abinger, and then to seventeen to five those had some bangers like like two to seventeen had three epic fights three like violent, like just three of the craziest finishes you'll see. And then, of course to a five, the CONOR McGregor show, and then to seventeen had the DC Jones trilogy, so I think we're a little maybe. We'll. We'll spoiled on these three. These three title fight cars while we're expecting something like that and I loved all all great fights off spectacular fights, but I think a lot of fans are tuning in to see fight island. In the Mazar strain, all these title-fights might have been. A limited. I could see why they might have been little disappointed. I didn't have a problem with it, but probably was the night Dana White wanted in terms of finishes. Yeah, the main event may have disappointed some people but for. The Sake, this is like the best thing that could have happened for the welterweight division like if you're burns. Edwards these guys are pretty happy right now. Especially Gilbert Burns. One hundred percent I mean we. We set it on count after it was on what the heck or or post eyesore produce. All kind of blend together at this point in the summer, but we. We said if Moslem Dole wins. That's going to be a problem for the US's pockets the welterweight division I mean. We were talking about him fighting the bringing the both belts so that the Conor McGregor. The table and all this. Kamara who's been one and it's? It's a no brainer that Gobert burn gets three matches. Suppose he should've been fighting tonight. before covid nineteen October, nineteen. That's applaud the car, so yeah, for all the way division, and the the the martial art fans of the world that don't like quote unquote. Holding divisions I think that's a good thing, but I. Honestly I love chaos at Moscow had one I. Think I, think it would have been fun time in the world of May. And Mazda all. Let's be clear. We all know this. He was the a side heading into this fight. He's the reason. There was a lot of buzz and a lot of fanfare when you had a guy like game bread in the street that he's on. That's what happens, but a lot of people wanNA know where he goes from here. Because despite losing the fight tonight, he still has a ton of options moving forward. Chaos can still rain in some way Jose. Can you say that again? You cut off quick second. Chaos can rain. For horny Mas at all got about it because he's got so many options moving forward despite the loss tonight. Yeah, I mean Hoy Mazdas. All I'm Kamara. WHO's been himself set like he's GonNa. He's like. He's like he's GonNa. Lose all these like excuses. Bill didn't talk the finance days notice flu costs. The country doesn't have was coach in the gym, covert nineteen this and that so like I. Don't think I of course I think Mazda obviously cooled anytime. You lose. You cool a little bit Conor McGregor and Nadir's, and it's such an insane finish that they run it back, and you have another epic fight like that, but for Mazda all you're obviously going to a little bit but he himself said. Let me, get a couple of wins and they'll run back. I'm sure he want. He would love to five full camp but the Colby College. Is there I? Think that is going to drum up a whole lot of interest I. think people might even be more interested in that fight in the dynamic between those two fires, oarsmen and I think that Kobe Covington already Moslems? Fight does not need a title online. That's just two guys. They hate each other I wanNA break brick on each other's faces. WHO'S MCCANN? Fight Gillard. Leeann, Edwards of course out there, wonder boy thompsons, working his way up Santana, positive I think has covered to so he somewhere out there, so the welterweight division will move, but for now Mazda all. Of course cooled, but he's still I think still the hottest commodity hundred seventy pounds.

That is you're in deep as we've now sent the twenty nine hundred season off into the Persian Gulf sunset. I was wondering if you guys guys have some favorite races from the last handful of seasons that new fans like myself can watch during the offseason to fill the void also on a side note for drew as a fellow Athenian from the class of twenty seven. I'm pretty sure your vacation of the last few years has made your made. You are most well known alum. So ex-governor Qassem.

Yeah Germany Yeah Hockenheim ring this year. How can I bring this year with with the slip and slide lied was particularly interesting race in a similar vein race? We often talk about which I believe is on F on. TV is the twenty eleven Canadian Grand Prix. It's another race with rain. Red Flags and Perhaps the most dramatic one of the most dramatic final APPs of a a of a of f one ever at was the twenty was a tooth has an ace presenting. Grand Prix was not the ear. Hamilton won his first I championship. I think it was nice. I think you're right with the master thing. Yes that whole race is is is is a real joy to watch A. That's a that's a an another good one and then trying to think about last year maybe the back who had two years in a row. Two thousand seventeen was the great race race. I think two thousand eighteen was the last year when the rebels had their contact. I think there was a bunch of good stuff that one as well but yeah I think it was the twenty seventeen gene Canadian. or as you're Johnny Grand Prix we had which was which was a real romper stumper. Yeah I think those those are great picks. I think I would only only throw in. I think it might be Brazil. Twenty sixteen where it was like verstappen putting on a masterclass rain. Yeah that's that's what it is. I'll I'll double check that and also put these in the show notes in case you're not writing these down. Yeah I don't I also don't know how many of them are on on TV archive..

We'll get really cold but we were able to start the car every hour or so. Run it for ten minutes and warm a backup that did burn a lot of fuel though Thankfully we refilled filled before. We got there so I imagine they're probably other people who didn't have that luxury and didn't have we met one lady who went down South for a dentist. I appointment and then was stuck on her way back didn't have anything on her car. Oh my God loaded with Thanksgiving snacks so we were able to share with her. This is have you ever played the long dark. It's good because you're prepared then for have what befell your family. That's absolutely insane. What was the what was the? What was the worst part? What was the most difficult part of the whole thing the back when it was like eleven? PM and we. We realized we were going to stay there. Overnight right the the mental preparation for the awesome Houston suck. This is gonNA suck. Did you sleep well. Because presumably were turning on the car to get warmer at that stage. I mean we it during the night we did. Wow yeah so I don't really know it was Kinda like again when you're on an airplane. You think you kinda slept. You're not really sure. Yeah Jeez Yeah. We're glad to have you here. We lived Speaking of cars endanger. If you're new to this podcast welcome. It's the end of the season. If you're new to Formula One is self though we recommend listening to I are preseason primer episode at the beginning of this year and then at that point. No better time. There isn't it assumes no prior knowledge so if you heard about hey the end of the season maybe a bunch of news stories kicking up about Formula One twenty nineteen done. Maybe we should get into that and when we do we literally not retire this until we do the next. preseason exactly you never know when someone's someone's GonNa find the podcast and just click on the most recent one. This year's primer last twenty nineteen primer is episode fifty nine but we are honestly closer to the next primary than we are to that one so our and the February got the data.

Shift one. Click the link in the show notes. What's what's been going on over? There Danny are formative primer has been very popular. We've actually got a couple the emails about it today. So we'll touch on a little bit. We've been we nailed that by the way I really enjoy that. Yeah it was it was it was entertaining throughout but it ended up being like an hour and forty minutes. It's good word. Danny that's really feel. Danny I thought you were making a joke about not having an exhaust. Actually when you said Oh that's very good. Yeah we've we'll have phone game history up this month and of course we will have this month's Patriots podcast up. I think it's going to work Christmas Day. We're still trying to figure out exactly what this one will be at. We have for the ones who are going to do. During the off season. An and yeah we think since Twenty Twenty S in an election year the January patron only one. WE'RE GONNA put up for a vote so expect that one and in a couple of weeks to because we're a couple of weeks away from twenty twenty. Would you believe yes today. However we will be discussing the final race of twenty nineteen That which took place in Abu Dhabi Abu Dhabi do uh-huh practice wise not going ah metal spun and hit the walt turned nineteen a portent of things to come lost an engine Grosjean and botas collided in which Botas was issued a reprimand for that. But it also destroyed grow John's only new specification floor. which was the wrong? You're kidding cars it it really is. I'll I'll bet those guys cannot wait to get the season by the one of the most worrying things I saw in one of the I think they did. One of those is it always the last race of the season where they do the press conference where all the managers they did a fun one. This time around and I was thinking was Williams Amazon. Were both talking about how their car was kind of of like a steppingstone car. For next year he says well thinking. Oh God please if nothing else please give those four houseboys new some new engines a new wheels next year. Yeah speaking of new engines botas starting at the back of the grid for power unit. Changes got some qualifying notes. Here federal again an unforced spin at the final turn to start his hot lap very embarrassing. I heard somebody say boy. That's like formula four mistake or Romain Grosjean mistake. There's somebody who's a video recently to wind up with grow John's worst mistakes which really was a fun journey through through Through his most notable memories. Maybe yeah greatest hits yeah exactly also Russell in Q.. One out qualifies all five cubits twenty-one for twenty one on the year just like Alonzo End van Doren. Guess how many points got though. That's true Guess who is coming back to Williams also true. I saw some more not not confirmations exactly commits it's a saying that he's a he's targeting team for next year. Oh Cool Hashtag which watcher yeah last bit and I'm so glad to be back. No matter who was in that race was going to be. It was a lemon so like yeah it was it was cool to see him around. I wish you know I think he. He will have enjoyed doing this year than the alternative of never coming back. I you know what I mean. I'd like to. It'd be great to have his thoughts on it but I do feel like you'll probably still enjoyed being part of the of the spectacle of the circus yes. Speaking of drivers who were out token Berg gets into Q.. Three for his final qualifying session in Q.. Three Leclair gets backed up for his final run on and does not make it over the line. Wow echoes of Monza. But this time it's just him Lewis. Hamilton gets his first pole position in nine races. Yeah which I guess you know if nothing else does show you. How competitive this year has been even if it doesn't feel all that competitive especially when you go into the final Rayson everything's been wrapped up? But yeah there's there's been battles there's been a little bit of especially the latter half of the season you know and those those Ferraris sure could qualify. Well here's how this battle will shape up Lewis Hamilton on top followed by Max for stap in bow ties actually qualified second but he gets bumped bumped down of course for that engine penalty the Claire and third and fourth Alex Album and fifth behind him. We Got Land Norris Daniel Ricardo Carlos Sainz Nico Nickel Holcomb Berg and Sergio Perez in tenth place and we have ghastly stroll Caveat Magnusson and Grosjean and Fifteenth Antonio Edgy of Nazi Kimi Raikkonen George Russell Robert cubits and vowed parade protests. Starting from the back of the grid do How how much do you blame Ferrari for when Claire? Yeah I mean I listen to the radio so I don't know how how much they were on his arse but like they should be checking Delta's as for him while he's on his Hala so I don't know I think he's probably I think actually raise fan has an article that sort of breaks down the the play by play of what exactly happened and why he was there. But that's sort of ancillary to me. The team should have put him out earlier. You know and I don't I still don't understand why they cut these things so close is it because they don't want to be first and if you're not I then you you well. I wasn't going to say but if you're not first then you're at the mercy of where everybody else slots in Nah. Nah I is it. Is it a gap thing. I don't know I don't know how I'd yeah. I don't understand why they cut it so close because it is a sport. Let's seconds so she just give yourself a ten second gap there in Q.. Three by default though like that is the other thing is when you really do. The math of fear cars. Pardon is fewer cars. There are but just in terms of your out lap. You're flying lap your cool down into the pets for tires like it's such like Q.. Three is gotta be pretty stressful but yet does feel like Ferrari seem to you. Get these things wrong more than other teams a theme. That comes up in the race as well. I there have been rumblings of changing qualifying. which we've seen before in the Bernie years as frustrating as something like this happening happening is I think I like? I think I like it. Yes I think I want the danger of this to be there. Don't change qualifying is what I'm saying. Yeah Monza was a nightmare for all of the drivers and the most entertaining qualifying has ever been yes. It was hilarious of the top. Six here only vessel is starting on soft tyres instead of everybody else's starting on mediums uh-huh and that's all I've got for pre race anybody else before we take to the start. No all right Danny all right. Let's ash way. We go at the front fronts. Pack all fine reasonable seemed like everyone got a decent stars and the only a little bit of action. We usually get something on that first term without big dirty runoff area and the right Was Gosling who unfortunately locked off and then sort of unfortunately for him was right in front of land stroll who also locked up and went into the side of him goslings front wing badly damage stroll had some damage to wing but also just seemed to damage the underside out of the car. Or the right of the chassis or something and we had a lot of action in terms of overtakes hopping kind of from the latter half of sector actor to Or the the latter one into sector to K- Magpies Hamburg on what would be his final race of the of the season. And maybe ever huckabee would probably just happy to try and get around one lap of the circuit. Considering what happened last year. We ended up on his head at the Clare. Got Past for stopping into second on the on the I I D straight. Let's call it the main sort of back straight for the game and the then we had sort of update on Botas who was up in the sixties. Already by that say gee gobbled up a bunch of places early lops that'll then got passed verstappen and Denver stop and got him back. I didn't see the original overtake there. But I saw him getting back at the end of the straight and then we had. I think it was Narus got past signs but by this stage we're open to sector sector three so there was a lot of those already few laughs. There was a lot of an interesting back and forth and not the same type of back and forth. We see here where it's kind of like you overtaken the straight number one at your peril because of the Diarra straight number two being so close to it and I guess some of that that was because there was a problem with the US right there was yeah lap four we get a message. Drs Disabled due to a technical issue. Robbed robbed you. I saw you posted a news story about this. Do you have any my making that up. No no no. So the the thing that laid out basically is the data server for the circuit crashed and and apparently everything hinges off that server so like all the lights off like a lot of the time lowering I guess and also theoreste detection goes off that I don't know why it is timing and scoring seemed to work fine for like the broadcast. Our data avair never seemed to be interrupted But in terms of like what caused the Serva- crash Yeah I it just sounds like the server failed and then they had to spend twenty minutes bringing it back to life again textile one more than that I think they were playing a specially cool because Michael said something interesting he said. I don't want to think about if we turned to non hadn't worked. I couldn't tell you what was going to happen and that makes me wonder. was.

"Through through maybe You know maybe it's always own fault but through his junior singles Ebay. He is going to have to prove the DOT was wrong. Whereas Policy George came in with those big title? GP Three hundred sixty back to back in the the much better than the Nicholas I don't think Nicholas Fail. Held onto by any of the criticism received because I think he'll take ownership of Ebay and be quite proud of the boys achieved or was as good as some of the doors. But I think He's a he's he's very much a man I think it's worth pointing out because is obviously there's A. There's a lot of. There's a lot of kids in these genes Anglesey Grayson Nicholas is always someone who seems to elevate himself a Gravitas that he has in the product when he when he walks around and when he speaks to people very he's very well respected and very highly so upset. I think he'll bring all as a package to to form in Washington You know I think initially the Probably won't be there and it may take him a little bit of time to get up to speed but I think he's shown he's got some of the characteristics needed needed for him to to catch up and reduce that Gupta Georgia over the course of the season. Well we'll be guaranteed always. He's going to be the best rookie of next season. Only because he's the only one but it will be interesting interesting to see how he gets on the page. I've attack see things one. You have to judge drive by what they do. Know how. They got plenty drivable money before and two with the Super License old style. The what what would normally batch does the pay drivers people with absolutely useless eve as you know there have been people go into formula two one. He's never even close to the kind of things he's achieved in formula too. I let's let's be fair. He may not be in the top bracket of stellar genie career. But he's these non idiot.

I'm sure he's the only driver Tova Finish eleventh in in the Porsche. Carrera Cup Great Britain Championship ashore but Yeah he's he's bounced around a lot and opened down singles career for sure formula. Three point five let's it's a two after GP to And and really two thousand eighteen was supposed to be the ED Nicholas Latifi emerged onto onto the scene promptly and with the new after you especially equalize the field there was a lot of rockies. Point your remember Georgia so Alex Albany in London Rolpa Fat Rookie Crop London. Donna race in in two thousand seventeen. GP TO BE COMEDY. Carl L. knows him Having a lot of experience but Nicholas was really supposed to hit the ground running. Not Yeah it was really after eight four with Charles the second half of two thousand seventeen eighteen in GP to and and really taking the fight to him and only Roland in that second. Half of the year and Dutch armies never emerged He was ill in the in. The preseason testimony missed the first test and wants he came back he felt like he was chasing the new call completely completely different to his drive in style in in the Collagen fail anything like the dumbs driven in the previous year in GP and he you went we always on a rabbit. Warren of setup changes that took him in the complete wrong direction. All is happening while Alex album was scoring three consecutive polls From the second race of the season woods and really taken Pfizer to George Russell in London noise in early season so Nicholas really struggled with illness and then and then the missing time the loss free test so that was that was supposed to be his year and it didn't. It didn't go that way. It took till Hungary really for them to undo all the bouts of changes. They'd made an Nicholas. The safety If you've seen we've feature on all export dot com unfortunate is written by me but if you take the time to work through it You know explains that that season in great depth and it was hungry when they When they got together but it also it also shows a a great willingness to look inside himself and dictate to to realize is is made mistakes and he's very honest about in the future if you if you read the quote some Very honorable set of quotes. I would say you know these first presents out to take a long look in the mirror to actually actually realize that it was my fault. We know what was going on there so Twenty nineteen spend much better but still walking a pole position. That's the one thing that you know. Therefore funders of commendable will notice on receive. Eighty is not an orgy. PT Position which is obviously a big deal but East Windsor she took the fights. Nicholas the reason. I think I genuinely think he's been looking at times as we've seen a couple of incidents where he should have scored better results through no fault of his own Definitely Monica it was a big one way or the The flag was applied incorrectly and Nick degreasers leading the race at the time was not then. It didn't have to pay again in that race. Despite the fact that you I should have done further regulations because of the red flag allowed to change tires under the red flags at about SUV made is mandatory tired change later on in the race and they. They didn't have to do that and also also the the drivers further back. We're not giving back which they also should have been so from about eight thousands. I think it was the whole field was lockdown and Nicholas was one of those drivers and he. He fought very hard onto at that race. He was taken out by teammate. In the rebel rink So set camera. He also had a a very Controversial incident move with Guangzhou What's Monster? As well aware he was he came off the western and not bow as well so probably three or four races of the ruined is weak and just just the backbone if you went back into more detail you bill to to find out more. So he's not fighting for the championship this weekend. And trump was replica weekend. Daly by by Nick Debris I think Nicholas feel very hard by having seen Nick Theresa's performances in Abu. But W this weekend. They just can't monetize economic model officer if it had been a final weekend decided I think Nicholas. Let's if he would have had a good chance of winning championships this weekend but it's just not worked out for him. What we can expect is what we've learned from his union singles ECOWAS? He's very willing to take a long look himself to work on his own. Drive in to listen to advice ace to accept when he's not got it right and to go back on that all key traits. I think for you know we've seen drivers come in to form a woman not have those traits Be Very restrict about how they want the cost. That's up and not be willing to make changes and realize that they're the problem and that kind of drivers who you don't last long phone so I think judging by the fact that Williams allies let's be at the back of the field again. I I think he's acceptable choice for them to take you know. We don't know the INS and outs that L.. But we're all human that brings him some push it through his valley. Extensive family family businesses is. That's been involved with longtime opposition. McLaren were purchase law share on around Monaco. Time last year so You know he's very interested in Formula One and ease always in the potty Atlanta Pushing Nicholas to to today better and not in a in a porsche cartoon dot kind of way. But you know very supportive kind of always have a presence in the product and always co presents Tautou about Nicklaus's performance as well and you can see where am would look from. You know there's no there's no shame looking at yourself and say I've made a mistake this round all we've made a mistake over the last couple of months so yeah I think I think good job. Williams obviously with people like Nicole combat on the market. You Know Williams have made a big coal to go with Nicholas despite the father is single. Is You know not spotless. As some of the people learn a lot from Georgia I think you know Georgia's year to establish himself in full now has proven that. He's a very talented driver I think Nicholas will have a lot to learn. And The Times where he doesn't impress any makes mistakes and you may be isn't on Georgia's pace but I think he showed in his journey single career as we talked about the East cots ability to to really book look at data analyze workers engineers and you know definitely acknowledged you know. When he's made a mistake he'll it'll be the first one to try to? He does strike me as one of those droves. He's never really caught the all you with this kind of stellar underlying ability lights like you say that work ethics been important. I Know Williams have been quite impressed with his attitude the way he's asked today Robson. Basically principal engineer thinks his job title and he was signed the whenever Nicholas is on a Friday always kind of lets. The garage obeys. Go a good approach and I think he's going to be the second Dr George Russell next year I think I don't think he's quite in that class from what I've seen he does lit- lie. Someone who can just work through. Things will be quite useful additions to the team and he may not be someone who's jaw-dropping laptop so that kind of thing but I can say in putting together decent rights performances learning from mistakes as you as you said obviously it's a financially motivated decision. There's no doubt by the number I've heard is in the vicinity of maybe fifteen million euros For the year which is designed basically as well commit suicide was bring joy. Says there's no shame in that what's whatsoever so he's not kind of Norris Norris Russell Alban Types Helen but one of those interesting ones. Sometimes you see drivers like that. Do get progressively better the more complicated implicated the job become. Shall we say we've seen come through with the perfect junior single seater. Save a lot stuff over northern. It's not worked for them. It's not A it's not golden cave conforming. One for the next twenty years is part of a much bigger package and I've seen some comments on social media and and some actions it to the feature we wrote and and people you know say Nicholas Pedroia and he's boy is see he doesn't to be there and all that kind of stuff you know. I think I understand is Is Unique single. CBS and probably what you've come to expect from people committee chairman one but For me all the signs that he's got the ability to to improve even I don't think You know it's obviously difficult to to compare jounieh. Are you single. Say it creates how he's GonNa React. As you quite rightly said he's very good at working with engineers We've already talked about how he's good at work on himself and he understands astounds data and is a very intelligent driver and the one thing we didn't mention there really is is race craft as well which is Something old same good info. We want I think because he's very He's not he's not perfect in January squash. Don't get your own book for Someone Who's not schooled Paul Position and he scored six wins in the championship but not shows that he can come for the failed. I've seen him many times for the season. Qualify around sixth seventh eighth and work his way forward to score podiums. He's very very good in a race and I think the Dan the criticism I think I have of his is race Fisher. Toll was incident with. We've gone you Joe. I mentioned earlier. That was split-second decision that you had to make their and I think he should have failed to the runoff quicker. Could then he then he did. I think that that was all that was on jobs fall. In in my opinion you know the opportunity to get out of the way of that one I think and he left the call that almost in you know trying to hold his ground and and I think if you went back to change that but that was a split-second decision. He didn't know what the other driver was doing. And I think it's hard to criticize him for that but yeah for the for the rest of the season in the rice crop spin been ready to good and I think not you know that should help make up for some of the. NFL will qualify deficit. That you will have to Georgia so because as you earlier this year is shown Georgia Shannon Alonzo like solve approach to their share in Alonzo performance if you like from when he was a minority so Obviously is in is in the Mercedes next week. So there's there's no doubt with Georgia's in you know in in the in the Grens game and things at the moment Nicholas's Through through maybe You know maybe it's always own fault but through his junior singles Ebay. He is going to have to prove the DOT was wrong. Whereas Policy George came in with those big title?.

"Could be reduced in the short term. Furthermore it's difficult to power larger vehicles such as trucks and aircraft with electric powertrains. So it's still worth focusing on the icy it's fuels quote however what we cannot do is carry on digging those out of the Ground Continues Simmons. We're going to have to somehow synthesize them. And that's what we want forming the one to explore and hopefully to lead so completely synthetic combustion based fuel is the goal. Apparently have basically where would you. Where would you get these thanks? You doesn't matter like it's not the fuel like it's okay if we pulled oil from the ground and the emissions weren't the issue with the emissions. It's the burning running it like it's not that it's it's not that it's oil from ground that's bad and it has all these other chemicals in it. It is that the process of using an internal combustion engine region to burn a fuel creates a mission that like drives global warming and greenhouse gases and the rap on bio fuels. Is that it really like with a lot of things. A lot of it depends on where you're sourcing thing at from like for instance Like the history of synthetic fuels goes back basically to World War Two Germany right as the sort of cut off from oil and and they start developing synthetics to power increasingly power Their fleet of military vehicles and I think their first synthetic fuels came came from like potatoes. I WANNA say like there was a famine in late war Germany in part because so much of their food crops got diverted into like synthetics attics to a big part of the Irish Dasa as well because we were just doing too many open wheel races during that period of time. A great tragedy The Irish just felt that need for speed Well we got Eddie Irvine out of its on all worked out you know but the is so that was kind of a model that was encouraged as well for like what if we could create whatever you take Arable farmland and turn that into a source for fuel fuel as oil becomes more scarce in bracingly oil scarcity is not the issue that is not the concern. The concern is the emissions where you can get some savings is we are in an era of What I've heard some of the oil industry call like dirty oil? The idea of like fifty sixty years ago so you think a while and you got the beverly hillbillies gusher right and it was just like Oh shit like oil out of the ground. Danielle plain view right and now increasingly. You hear things like Tar Sands and such we're like really inefficient or hard to access sources of oil that do create a lot of energy Overhead and create a lot of environmental impact. Just to get the oil out. biofuel does solve for some of that but then it still has to hit an engine and still get burned and as I understand it and I was just reading a little bit about this as the topic. Ah came up. But it doesn't sound like biofuel really solves the emissions problem And me in a piece the guardian from two thousand seventeen Where you know? A survey of different biofuel sources. A lot of them were worse than oil. Oh Oh wow like and this is two thousand seventeen. Obviously they dea is that to me is going to continue improving. But I don't think that bio-fuel actually solves the problem we're facing of can be interesting too sick Formula One on that. Try to solve it. But I think you're right rob the point out that that doesn't seem like the precise problem that they are aiming to solve. No I mean think about like where have you seen the most aggressive bio-fuel live fuel advertising. Who's WHO's marketing idea? bio-fuel crisis PAT petrochemical companies right. Yeah it's people looking down the barrel of inevitable notable environmental regulation and trying to figure out how you can create the smokeless cigarette basically of the oil L. Industry So I don't know this is a pretty disappointing initiative. 'cause I like I understand that I understand there are some things that internal combustion engines are really good at the they're kind of ideal for I understand maybe you know. F One is not quite ready ready to go purely electric but this notion that biofuel is some sort of like out there we go solve that problem just doesn't and not to be online about it but my reaction to this is very much like this ain't it but like I think would be kidding ourselves if we didn't think that this entire initiative wasn't mostly about the optics rice the and and the word biofuel in and of itself is an entirely entirely like that's a marketing like word bio when you get right down to it so a lot of this stuff it doesn't hold up to that it doesn't hold up to scrutineer right like when you get right down to it in the same way as well if you talk about Tesla's and you're like yeah. It's wonderful electric cars getting powered it off the same grid that everything else is you know you try and hope maybe that these things are a means to an end or like a step towards a brighter future but yeah yeah you're totally right. It's it's it's kind of to me at least this whole part of us. I if if they were doing this you know this is what is going to be in ten years time and and they didn't have something that was bending. The knee somewhat to environmentalists that and they'd be called out on it. It's just side. I guess that the reality of this is what we need to fix. These problems are such massive institutional changes to the way in which we create energy the like even if one can't get ahead of that right what what are we going on like. What's the alternative? Solar cars get rid of the Abu Dhabi race. Then there's a missing the opportunity here though and this is what frustrates me. That feels like Formula One looked at the situation and they're like well. How can we partner with the Petro? Yesterday where where what I think could be an opportunity for Formula One and like this is sort of the stuff that George Russell was like pointing at right is that the opportunity is actually in reimagining. How complicated logistical chains that span? The Globe can be reimagined to have a low lower over lower overhead ahead of emissions to make it less energy and emissions intensive to do things like send bespoke parts and You know cars around the world and I don't know what that looks like I don't know if it means like Formula One gets super into advanced principles or something so that there's Pappas abilities ladies around the world and basically not shipping cars. You're you're shipping files I don't know like what that looks like but I think there's an opportunity there of okay. You can still have Formula One something like Formula One which is not just like the pinnacle of Motorsport also kind of the pinnacle of the globalized era. We've all been living in and the interconnected economies and manufacturing and resources. That have started to find this era. How do we keep? What is good about this Madera County? We've come to know while reducing thing instead stating environmental impact. I think Formula One could lead in some of that stuff because the thing that people are often frightened of giving up is like or has to give up in the wealthiest parts of the developed world are the really high end luxury. And there's has nothing more like luxurious or consumptive than than Formula One. But this notion that you can you could maybe reimagined the sport retain its identity and retain. What's cool and ridiculous about it but also make it less? Harmful is intriguing to me. What's far less intriguing? Is this idea of gesturing vaguely like an algae pool and being like someday our cars will run on that. I guess see. It's green. Yeah Yeah Yeah well said speaking of clearing the air very wealthy This on what he saves he saves. He saves the best till the end of the season. The this'll coming from Reuters this one. Just basically Ferrari a clearing the air in relation to that Haphazard Collisions always shall we say between Seattle and Charlotte Clare at team. Bus Before we talk. That's about it. Let's get the Dwyer opinion on it. We we missed you last week. Yeah I mean yeah what an awful race to I was literally getting on a plane like an hour after the race or I've after before you were quite in the pot guys thank you God. Can I just do the podcast while in the airport. Maybe it was. It was such a fun race and I mean look I think. Battle the battles sort of we've seen the tapes from previous races again. He he tried to give himself a little bit more space so he wasn't in such a disadvantageous position. Making that left at the end of destroys and obviously the Claire wasn't moving and so like I don't know it's like one of those times where somebody nobody hits. Maximum Max Acts Weird and then people tend to give Max a little bit more elbow room. You know what I mean or I've obviously Charlotte is not. It just didn't doing Josh is not interested in in in keeping where he was he had enough space. You could've stayed there. It's this it's similar to the Hamilton album thing. Where like Louis? There was a gap. There should Louis in an album closed at haphazardly but also was Louis going to make any kind of committed to laze. It was just what both of them were just kind of messy crashes. I think appleton was more at fault for the Albion one in a way obviously. He ended up getting penalties so just saw sought that way too but for the Ferrari one I think it was just it was unfortunate for both of them. I think if anyone was to blame it was vital bus also how to blame was he. He he didn't really crush into him. That bad and the resulting damage to both cars was probably more than you would normally see and that type of incident so yeah and and I guess maybe Ferrari just want to sweep it under the rug as quick as possible. I think for that reason nobody really comes. Editors when looking good the team don't Fateh look a bit Amateurish Church doing us and the Claire.
