Fresh update on "abu dhabi" discussed on The Ben Shapiro Show

"Because she once dunked a basketball. I'm really, like, that's the real thing is that people know Brittany grinder's name because he made a huge deal out of it on ESPN when like ten years ago, she dunked a basketball and people were like, oh my God, first Duncan's WNBA history. It is astonishing how amazing the action is that the WNBA games to paraphrase Bill Burr whenever people complain that it sexism is the reason why WNBA, games have no attendance, women represent 51% of the American population, ladies, go do your jobs and attend a WNBA game. You don't want to? Don't blame them in. Women's basketball star Brittany griner has now been released from a Russian penal colony and is being returned to the United States through a prisoner exchange for Russian arms dealer Victor bout, which culminated on Thursday with a Cold War style handover on an airport runway in Abu Dhabi. They swap kept a drama that began in February when grinder, a 32 year old two time Olympian and center for the WNBA's Phoenix mercury was on her way to a high paying professional job in Russia during U.S. off season, which is, of course, a genius move. In the middle of expectation that Russia is about to declare war on Ukraine, you fly in, but you don't just fly in, you also land with hash oil in your luggage. A genius move. And just kind of put it out there. The world is not the world. It's not a, it's not a safe place. When you fly into evil dictatorships, probably don't bring your hash oil. Just as a general rule, don't bring your hash oil. Reiner was convicted of drug smuggling in possession sentenced to 9 years in a penal colony. That, of course, was dramatic overkill. The Russians were doing that in order to hold her as a hostage. Clearly. The U.S. deemed a grinder had been wrongfully detained and a designation that obligated it to work to obtain her release, which of course the United States should. I mean, it's the job of the United States not to leave people behind. Like, I don't know, like the 10,000 Afghan allies that we left behind in Afghanistan are the hundreds of Americans we left behind in Afghanistan or green card holders that we left behind in Afghanistan who are still there. Or the dozens of other people we leave languishing in prisons around the world. Brittany griner was top of the heap. She was the one who mattered absolutely the most. That sends off a tons, months long diplomatic negotiation between the two superpowers that perhaps the lowest moment in their relations in decades, a breakthrough came in recent days earlier this week, griner was moved from a penal colony in mordovia, about 350 miles northwest to Moscow, a city where her imprisonment had begun. About was given a conditional grant of clemency that was not completed until Thursday when U.S. officials in the UAE verified that griner was there too and ready to return to the United States. There's some tape that is now emerged of Brittany Reiner getting on the plane. I would not be the first to observe that Pete Davidson will apparently be playing her in the movie. And in any case, here is Brittany griner.

"World news roundup. Britney griner returned to the U.S. a few hours ago, capping a ten month ordeal that saw the basketball star imprisoned by the Russians in exchange for a notorious arms dealer. Phoenix mercury teammate Brianna Turner is glad she's back. She's such a kind, nice and giving person. Always willing to give a helping hand, always willing to help someone in need, whether it's giving someone a free meal or giving someone a ride. She's honestly one of the most generous people that I know. Here's CBS's Nancy cordes. The plane carrying Britney griner did not take her home to Phoenix, instead prefer stop is in San Antonio for evaluation and treatment if necessary at rook army medical center. Reiner crossed paths on the tarmac in Abu Dhabi with Victor boot, the 55 year old Russian arms dealer who was the other half of this prisoner swap. Rob za Harry cheves is a former DEA agent who was part of the team that arrested boot back in 2008. He owned his own fleet of former Soviet military aircraft, which gave him the ability to deliver arms anywhere in the world. Boot was accused of conspiring to kill Americans and sentenced to 25 years in 2012. Sahara Chevys worries the swap could have unintended repercussions. We just sent the message out that it is good business to have an American citizen in your back pocket for that day you need a bargaining chip. Still held by the Russians is American Paul Whelan. He's not part of this deal, and while his family welcomed grinder's release, relatives have expressed frustration. The business consultant and former marine has been in Russia since 2018. Whelan is serving a 16 year sentence on an espionage conviction. He's denied the charges. His sister Elizabeth, on CBS mornings. We have a country Russia who is trying purposefully to cause trouble over here. They weren't going to, in my opinion, send both Paul and Brittany home at the same time and give our president the win. But we need to figure out a way around that. I don't know exactly what that solution is. I constantly love crazy ideas at the people who are in charge of that, hoping that some of my ideas both spur them onto action that will actually result in polls released. A Senate Democrat now says she's left the party and is registered as an independent. Arizona's Kirsten sinema put out a video. Registering is an independent and showing up

"And welcome to today's edition of the briefing with me Andrew Muller. The American basketball star Brittany griner is now back in the United States. The Russian arms deal of Victor bout is now back in Russia. The pair were traded in a prisoner swap, griner has spent much of this year in custody in Russia after being caught with cannabis oil at a Moscow airport. About has served a rather longer stretch for rather more serious crimes. A clue potentially to the backstory of the deal was the location of the exchange, Abu Dhabi airport. Joining me in the studio is Bill lore Middle East analyst and editor of Arab digest build there are conflicting reports which we shall get into presently about what role the UAE and Saudi Arabia may have played here, but beyond the fact that they were traded on the tarmac at Abu Dhabi airport literally there is footage of them getting off respective planes and getting on the other respective plane. What do we know for sure? Well, what we know is that the Saudis and emirati have made this very public claim that they were essential to this swap and the Americans, the White House press secretary green champion is reiterated time and again, no, no. This was just between us and the Russians. What I find intriguing is that normally when these sorts of things go on, if you are engaged, you don't shout it out. Immediately, the release is affected. It's usually more of a quiet process. So I find that curious, I'm less surprised at how The White House has responded. There is, as you know, under plenty of tension now, particularly between the Saudis and Joe Biden, they just don't like Joe Biden. And of course, Biden went to Jeddah and the infamous fist bump, which didn't secure what he was asking for, which is putting more oil on the market ahead of the midterms as it turned over to Joe Biden. He had a rather good midterms in any event, but this, to me, this speaks about this shift, almost a tectonic shift that is going on. And what these authoritarian gulf leaders are saying to America is now, look, we are not the same leaders that you are used to dealing with. We're not the sort of leaders who, when you say how much oil do you want us to put on, we say, okay, we'll put it out there. We are, we are living in a different world. And the situation with the Saudis in particular, but also they have a line through to Putin. Clearly. I mean, they're all an open OPEC plus the Saudis came in in 2016. There's lots of give and take back and forth. The emiratis and the Saudis are on the same page all the time with OPEC plus the audience is actually put like to put a little more hell out there. The Saudis are saying, no, I'm not going to do it MBS is saying that. And of course, there are these competitive elements. Look at what the bin Salman is doing with tourism. He is spending literally hundreds of millions of turn the kingdom into a kind of hotspot for western and Asian tourists. Well, that's a direct challenge to Dubai, which for 20 years has dominated that sector in the gulf. And they have tensions over the economy economic tensions, for example, a Saudis put out this edict earlier this year saying, if you want to do business, you have to move your head office to Riyadh. And of course, the emirati is Dubai and Abu Dhabi are saying, hang on a minute. This isn't the way we like this. So there are these kinds of tensions back and forth. But I think it actually speaks to this bigger shift that's going on. I think Americans still don't get it. They don't understand that there is this new leadership in place that is not going to play the game that they're used to playing. And so I don't really know the extent to which the Saudis nevadans were essential. They might have put in a good word. I think the basic negotiations went on between The White House and Moscow. I think that that would be my best guess on it. Because it would be would it not extraordinarily cheeky for the Saudis to be floating the idea that they had played a role here if they genuinely had nothing to do with it. Yeah, and I think they wouldn't do that. It's how much you amplify. Your contribution to this, how much you big it up. And as I say, normally, I mean, if you look at the Qatar, it's for years they've hosted the Taliban. It was all done on the chorus. We knew that the Taliban were there but by golly, you couldn't get to the Taliban as a journalist. I could never get to them. I tried and tried and tried. That was all done in the quiet and in fact it was useful to Trump because Trump was able to use Doha to negotiate this terrible deal that he dumped on Biden as it turned out in regards to Afghanistan. But that was all done quietly. This is really openly open. And in a sense, I think there's a kind of petulance at play here as well. On both sides, that the good news is that Brittany griner is home. I mean, there are people saying, well, you know, was that a good trade in the sports world? You would say maybe it wasn't such a good deal, but I'm trying for her and her family and her wife that she's home. And it's a win for Biden as well, isn't it? Well, indeed, so, but as you say, there is clearly a relationship between Moscow and Riyadh and between Moscow and the UAE, is it imaginable that they could perhaps serve as a conduit or do we also assume and obviously I mean in reference to Ukraine or do we assume that Russia and the United States are also communicating about that quite directly? Well, I think in terms of, you know, I think there is still a pipeline between them because there has to be because of the potential of a fundamental error that leads to a catastrophe both sides. So I think that's going on. The extent to which the emiratis and the Saudis can be a pipeline. I'm not sure about that because if you look at what they have done, I mean, they've basically taken the side of Russia in this dispute because they have an honor to any of the sanctions. If you look at Dubai, you know where a lot of those kleptocrats have arrived with their money and their super yachts in Dubai. And so I don't and I think again, because of this shift, I don't think the Americans are feeling very comfortable right now with the Saudis or the MRI. Does it mean a few years ago, they were called little Sparta, you know? For their contributions in the war, and Afghanistan now look at where it is. It's all very tense. The Americans are really annoyed about this leak that was given to The Washington Post that the MRI has been inspiring not just on dissidents and journalists they don't like but on politicians using this Israeli spyware Pegasus. So I think this speaks to this kind of tension, this kind of shift that's going on in the two. Bill, thank you as always for joining us. You are listening to the briefing. Here is Monaco's Emma soul with the day's other headlines. Thanks, Andrew. The managing director of the International Monetary Fund has praised China's decisive move away from its hardline zero COVID policy.

Then the finish and Turkish foreign ministers have been meeting to address turkey's reluctance to allow Finland's accession to NATO. Plus European parliamentary systems, the sort that you have in Britain or Germany or most of Europe don't have anything resembling a primary because you're extracting someone who's already in the system. Washington correspondent examines Joe Biden's proposal to shake up preliminary voting systems. British lawmakers have given the go ahead to the country's first new coal mine in 30 years. We'll ask how that affects the UK's commitment to halt climate change and a delegation of writers from the U.S. has visited Ukraine to bear witness to the cultural destruction of the country and the heroic fight back from authors and artists.

"So yeah, that's the reality that we face of him no longer being on the grid anymore. I mean, with Sebastian Vettel, we've all come to terms with that one, and grieved comprehensively. If you watch the coverage, anything this weekend. The biggest loser out of all of them, the one who got no fanfare whatsoever Nicholas Latifi. No. He tried to crash to the end of the race. I thought that was pretty fitting. Yeah, I thought it was. How does it make Schumacher in fact? I thought it was both very, that both of them were very fitting. Wasn't even allowed to do a donut. No. No, he wasn't. He was not even donut permission. Very sad. You know what? Points down for Haas. I've had a very, they've ended as public enemy. They started the season with so much goodwill. Even Brazil with the pole position, but sort of a bit of a not even any sort of fanfare for poor old Mick. No. For that weekend, not allowed to do any donuts. Never again, not only your life, me. So yeah, although Nikola tefi, even I saw the Williams farewell video in he thought, oh, what are you going to give me a part that I broke or something? He thought he was going to get gifted. No, thankfully, he got a bit of wing that he got where his first points for Williams that he got. So that was a nice touch. Nice fellow. It seems like a nice man. Stocks up your capital stocks down Gunther signer. There you go. That's it. Sums it up. I did recover. Yeah, yes. Well, look right, these are the driver market time we talk about that, but yes, Daniel Ricciardo, you're right. It hit me on Sunday as well, that this was. I don't know. Do you want to say probably? Is this it? Like, is it a pause? Do you think that's it? Well, this is what I wish for. Rubs to dry mister struck gold again. I can't remember what episode, but I said it. I said the sabbatical being the best thing for him. And it's not the best thing, but that's the thing at the moment. Available thing. Come back to me in 12 months. And then I'll be absolutely vindicated by my decision. But I said that he needed to take a sabbatical. And here we are. He's picking his options. And it's just, well, I'm glad that it's funny because if you go, this is how important words are. If you say, if you travel back in time, 12 months ago and you say, hey, I've got some Gus for you. Daniel Ricciardo is either going to Mercedes or Red Bull. All right. That's awesome. Bosch. He's a reserve driver. Oh, that's bad. Very bad. The verification process on Twitter is much easier. Oh, that's good. You go to pay for it, and Elon Musk is in charge. It does SpaceX to work. This was the other one with the Internet one. Stalin. Stalin, can you go mobile on Starlink? Yes. Okay, what's wrong with that then? Elon's kind of lost his wife. I guess a white type, how safe for myself then. But yeah, Danny Ricciardo on sabbatical. He's either got Red Bull or Mercedes. Let's look forward to. Sounds like Red Bull, doesn't it? Well, helmet Marko is pretty convinced his Red Bull. Yeah, very convinced that he said, I don't know if it's a poor translation because nothing's come out. So my understand I looked into this and my understanding is that he said it. He said that Daniel is going to be here for three whatever he said. Not three years, the driver. And then after the fact tried to say, I meant if he's coming records in the dark. But I don't think I said rouse head red shirts. Oh no. But I don't think he said it. I think he wanted either he wanted to imply it or he didn't want to imply it and realized he shouldn't have said it. I do like that I like how much thunder that's stolen from the situation and I like that he said it so explicitly that even Daniel Ricciardo, who's been extremely cagey and reserved about it and Christian Horner, who never runs any questions, have both said, yeah, look, it's 99% done. We just haven't signed it. They've both had to say it because Elmer Barker was so definitive. Man, so it's like, ruining the surprise. Yeah, it is. It's like he's ruining the surprise. Which he saw, I don't know how I don't know how and you should feel about that, but it seems like it would take something extraordinary at this point for it not to be Red Bull. Yeah. So that seems like where it's going, which means you'll be to bring this back full circle to where we started and detour to talk about this. He will be in the wings, I guess. You wouldn't say shadowing Sergio Pérez, but there's always that risk. Perry's got a two year contract, Red Bull is very happy with him. They want to construct a standing this year. That's all I want. And what Maxwell in the driver's title and vampires did do enough to win the constructor's title. But if they don't, check that box next to you. The other teams will compete with whatever. And if Daniel Ricciardo is doing well in the simulator, he knows how to drive Red Bull cars. We know that. Maybe that's what happens? Yeah. And because what? Sergio is locked until the end of 24. So it's just kind of going on, Jesus, another classic tenure Ricardo movie. He's pushed out of a rice state, still stuffs up a reserve travel role. Didn't work out also for 2025. Yes, for your year was easy to do with these pandemic. F one font, the 5 looks like a three. Easily forgiven. But yeah, it kind of coming to warm to that reality. I think Red Bull I wouldn't be unhappy if he was there, because clearly, well, then again, it's just like, well, obviously he's gone there going, well, if it was a case of Mercedes not offering me say till 2025, it's just like, well, where do I go? Where do I want to go? So it's like, well, it's 6 of one, half a dozen of the other saying. I don't know what it means, but for him to go back to Red Bull and it's like, well, at least another car and I had to success there and I drew no he's still there. He's officially there backing sandwiches apparently. He's there. And you'd say you've either of those teams is more likely to make a wacky driver decision tax someone. It's going to be Red Bull. Yeah. They may as well be there. You never know max could always disgrace himself. Never know. You never do that. You never do that. You're listening to Greeks on the roof. Let's check in for the final time. In 2022, on formula beginning, the F one fantasy competition ran at one fantasy website. The one that doesn't work, they still haven't. I've noticed updated their photo to a photo of this year's card, still one of last year's cars. So something they can improve in the next season. Yeah, well, I think the latest Ferrari sponsor is involved in the software. It's been a competition that's been taken very seriously as you can tell. Oh, I'm very excited to bring you new characters into effects. Let's see how long I could run that one into the grand fool. Oh, yes.

"How could you forget? Yes, the year is 2010. You're having a great time. Yes. I don't know. Temper trap for Phoenix. Phoenix. One of the greats. Not an Alex. Iconic. Iconic time. And the total old man. Yes. You've just got an iPhone. This was an underrated era. Specifically, 1950 something. Not a 150 something. It was a great year. It was a great year and then when it came back in 2010 it was special Vettel's time as a primary life and Aries retiring in teddy's time, Max Verstappen will have just Elon Musk names to remember. His career by and where will they be post a drop if not on Twitter? Mastodon. No one. Don't want to do anything. I'm not getting messed it up. We learned how to listen with Google+ back in the day. I'm not doing it with Mastodon. All right, we're at the limit. We've maxed out. It's finished, guys. It's finished. No Twitter it's all over after these. Oh, Mastodon. Wait, wait. What are we talking about? Something about Abu Dhabi? It's boring. It's boring. It's boring. It was all right. But this is the thing. If you have to say, it was all right because the battle for second place was good. That's an equal indictment on circuit and season to be fair. Yeah. But it's still not a classic and there was a decent amount of overtaking, but none of it that exciting. I don't know, just a little bit, why do we keep ending the seasons here? Yeah. Imagine if we ended with Brazil. Ah, that would have been the best. That would have been very good. I would have far more enjoyed that. But here we are. These are the cards we deal with. And you kind of know that going in. So at least you're not sort of you're not being a hoodwinked. It's going to be an epic season. You've been warned. It's always, you can tell a race, even itself knows. It's the promoter knows that it needs further sizzle where at the final at the final lap. And everyone across to the checkered flag a literal smoke screen. You know, the old saying so I can basically just smoke. It's just fireworks. Even the KFC big bash would have said, I think that's a bit much. In between playing Avicii at a 128 disciples at the MCG. I do agree with that as well to be fair. Oh, I did that. I don't know. So Formula One's really, it's having a moment at the moment. And it's gone from the Dutch jpeg being arrive that happens at a Grand Prix at it. To them, try and apply that to everything. I remember because I was at the Dutch GP this year and then went to Monta. And I tried to do exactly the same thing that's had some old made on you know the podium at Monza the one portrait had some old made up there. The crab now you can imagine the crowd at Italy. Like they're all old Ferrari. But they're all hardcore Ferrari fans. That's all I wanted. They could not give a damn. No, this was their reaction. That's the best on the party. This is the engineering daybreak after. This was when. Gazette sport broke that even though I was losing his job. Back radio in the morning about how well Charles Leclerc did to get second place. What do you think of the suburban rail loop? I tell you what I waited to wormhole last night typing in old Italian men arguing because one of the great I think arguing languages is just. But it's subtle because it could also be exciting. Yes. What? Two things. It could be a comedian. It's very diverse. It's a very diverse form of communication. But now doing it again, you have a job, the lab music on the creed, even though it looked like the grandstands were half full of taste that no one cared. Everyone was done. They made the music. But they did it anyway. And then they had the fireworks at the end. It was all just for Max Verstappen to start on Paul and win the race pretty easily, led all but one lap. It did it with one stopper, but I was very good, very convincing performance. Charles Leclerc got second in the driver's championship ahead of Sergio Pérez now.

"We had an interesting media session with doctor saf now or after the race and he said ask him about the season and politically how tough he found the pediatric court case. And he said, well, it's something we had to go through. And he said, at the end of all of it, I think we've ended up with a better driver. And that was really, really interesting, I thought, it struck me as being like, okay, I mean, it's like, well, maybe you would say that because ultimately, you know, that's how the case panned out. But he said, hey, look, but he's a Grand Prix winner. He's established he's still young. So yeah, I think we've actually ended up better off there. Yeah, I mean, that's probably a whole other podcast when we come into the start of next season. I think we should take it back. Which will explode first. The Alonso and stroll situation by stroll, I mean, stroll senior, or will it be the two French talents at Alpine? I think both of those have got absolute train wreck written over them, which could be could be good for your headlines next year. I reckon. I do also, I actually want to tell a little story about Alpine and mention them, because. On Saturday, south now hosted a round table media session, our colleague from motor sport dot com has ended. After that session happened, a few people said to me, they're like, oh, have you heard what Omar said about you? And I was like, no, what's been going on there? And Omar apparently went round the media session and said, right, where did everyone say we would finish this season? And everyone said, well, either like fourth or 5th or 6th or I can't remember. And then apparently said, oh, well, Luca auto sport. He's finished 8th. And I was like, oh yeah, and I did. I did. There was a video that came out in testing where I said, I think they're going to finish 8th and be the disappointment of the season because their first test was terrible. And Lauren Rossi, the Alpine CEO said today, sorry, said on Saturday that they were a shambles after the first test. So that kind of shows that I was kind of semi justified in what I said. But clearly, that was used as some kind of motivation, I think. And then today we were working out who goes to what media Sessions. And I said, no, I'll go to my map to take it on the chin and say, yeah, I got it wrong on whatever. And I went into Alpine and I sat down waiting for him and then over to me came Alan pomade in the sporting director and Lauren Rossi, the big boss of Alpine. And Alan said, oh, we've just been watching your video where you said we finish 8th, then we would be the disappointment of the season. I was like, oh, here we go. Here we go. And permanent was like, yeah, quite the expert quite the expert. And I said, yeah, fair play lads, like I got that wrong, totally fair, well done congratulations. Shook hands with them and everything. And they're not Mark aim over the session. I said, oh, well, almost some media are writing you off pre season saying you might finish as low as 8. Who would say that? And he said, 8, 8, how on earth did you think 8th? And I said, yeah, maybe I'm in the wrong job, I don't know, but it was all getting and one of the works that I'll be messing with me to say you handled that really well. And again, I'm happy to, I think it's important that we do make these kind of predictions and that we are opinionated in terms of what we say. Obviously, you want to do that with you can't just say things for the sake of it. It's got to have some sort of basis. But yeah, but also have the gumption to say, look, yeah, I've got it wrong, fair play lads, because Alpine did a great job this year to beat McLaren to that position. They said they don't regret going for the aggressive strategy with the car in terms of going for pace over reliability. And yeah, very well deserved espanol, really good drive from him today as well, I think, and they've done, I think, a good job this year. So well done, well done Alpine. Thank you for consuming our content and watching our videos and reading our articles. And yeah, we'll see where am I mystic sort of predictions going for next year, but we've also got some youngsters in Jack Dylan will be in the second Alpine car, a Felipe drug of it should be in the Aston Martin. Logan Sargent as well. I think tomorrow we should get sort of formal confirmation, basically, he will be racing for Williams next year, even though we know that is the case, but that would be another chance for him to get up to speed before his debut, F one season. And yeah, I just think it should be a pretty exciting test as Tesco and if they can be exciting. And with so little before the testing as you mentioned already next year, how they end this year is incredibly incredibly important. Of course, they'll be development over the winter, but just whether people leave on a high or a low coming back to that leclerc thing as well about leaving on a high and feeling like they're buoyed by the last race of the year. Shouldn't matter, but it totally does Jess. Thank you very much for everything that you've done on the auto sport podcast. This year, and what a year it's been, again, without doing the season podcast review. Safe travels back home over the next few days, how are you feeling about how formula ones wrapped up this year? I can't believe how quickly this season has felt like it's gone by. I know it's not quite 12 months since we were here wrapping up the 2021 season, but

"Shocker's Jess is anti holcomb. Mick needs time in the seat. Mick needs time in a race seat to work out those rough edges that we've seen this year. He's not a complete he's not a complete driver. But and that he has acquitted himself well at times, but being a test and reserve and spending time in the sim doesn't achieve that. And this has really been the first without a race. The first season he's really been able to be anywhere other than always at the back. I'm not saying he's had plenty of time at the back. He said some rather costly crashes. I'm not saying he likes the world on fire, but with Magnussen, who is the steady constant and the experience is kind of covered now. I'm not saying that that excuses some of the bad performances that he's had this year. But I mean, I don't know, maybe I'm going to be pleasantly surprised, Kev, by the hulk's performances next year, but I have heard that the team that there was disappointment with his level of fitness, at the beginning of the year when he had to jump in the car and although he did an okay job for someone who has never driven or tested this era of F one car. He did okay. And I'm sure he's going to be he's been using all of his time. I can't remember if we spoke about it, but apparently he gave a PowerPoint presentation, so taking a leaf out of George Russell's book in terms of convincing gunter Steiner that he's ready. I'm sure he's going to do all the preppy can, but I don't know. It's just like, I mean, maybe Hass does just need someone very vanilla. I think they're both, but there isn't that the point they're both kind of fine. Mixture and he's not going to be a future world champion but I think actually the way he's compared to kit, it's been nice to have a season where they've been along the side Magnus news and known quanti. Whereas last year against mazin, you were like, I don't know. You could both be driving around two seconds off the pace and we wouldn't have a clue. Whereas now. So actually, make sure you macro is a perfectly solid acceptable Grand Prix driver. Is your future world champion? No. I think hulkenberg is basically the same, but with more experience, but less recent. I'm not saying I have a preference either way. I think it's pretty cool. Don't sit on the fence. Come on. For me, I've just always had a bit of a thing about hulkenberg, because he did, if you always look at drivers coming out to the junior ranks, he set fire to every series he was in. He was amazing. He delivered that incredible poll for Williams in Brazil. Like he's got more of an X Factor about him than Mick has ever had, but have we, has that moment now gone? I wonder whether it probably has. Are we ever going to see that again? To me, there are two standout drivers from this year from outside the big three. And they are Alonso and Norris. And the difference is that Alonso's car doesn't finish any races. Again, I didn't finish today. I guess just what the hell is going on there? Whereas an aristocrat finishes. But he hasn't got a teammate. It's been able to score. So our pain of one by having two strong drivers and Clare lost by having they've had more reliability in one strong driver, basically. I can't move well, we've gone to that side. Oh, hulkenberg and Mick Schumacher. I'm struggling to get overly invested in either storyline if I'm honest. But I'd like to see, I'd like to see hulkenberg do well just because I've always thought he was he's someone that hasn't delivered what he's I think he's under delivered on his ability, whereas I think Mickey's just delivering what we expected. Let's talk a little bit in the last few minutes about where we head next and that is Luke. Nowhere. You're staying exactly where you are. Don't check out of the hotel. I get to move hotels, at least. Because you're starting. Okay, right. Because you're going to stick around to watch the tyre test, but it is really interesting because drivers probably not in fully commercially branded race suits, as you mentioned last week, they're probably a few logos missing because teams have allowed drivers to leave early and go to competitors and things like that Logan sergeant secured his FIA super license over the course of the F two. Weekend as well. So who are you expecting and looking forward to seeing in the cars? Thanks, Martin. There's lots of there are lots of changes here and it's a good chance for everybody to get just bed in with their new teams and although obviously you don't learn anything about the 2023 car because it's not the 2023 car is little things like getting a seat fitting done and sort of like pedal placement and steering wheel and how systems work and everything like that. There's lots of little adjustments that the teams can make and just really understand to try and get the new drivers more climatized to their cars and the other thing is that testing is so limited next year. They get three days in Bahrain, so that's one and a half days per driver plus obviously a couple of shakedowns. That's all the running you get. So any extra time you can have to kind of speed things up and I guess shortcut this learning curve is really, really valuable. The big one is obviously Fernando Alonso at Aston Martin. He's going to be he said last week in all black race suit he'll have, so we'll see, but yeah, it's quite stick like, isn't it? Without the proper logos and stuff. But yeah, it's been a torrid season for him in terms of reliability and he just said today I'm happy it's finished now. I'm happy I'm done. And that he could just sort of get on with get on with the next chapter, which is with Aston Martin. And he said, yeah, it's going to be amazing there and he's very excited and positive about that project. And it'll be a first chance for him to get in the car and see how he can get on. I believe Lance stroll is going to be doing a few runs at the end of the day. I don't know. It's sounded like that, but yeah, but it will still be a chance for a big chance for another load to get up to speed a little bit with Aston. And then obviously Oscar piastre finally back in an F one car and with McLaren for the first time, piastre is being here this weekend, but in plain clothing, so not like in McLaren gear or anything. I'm not entirely sure contractually where things stand in terms of if he's going to be like in former Clara and gear and stuff, but still it's going to be a chance for him to, again, get that speed and see what life with McLaren is like and give him a first taste. Pierre gasly, he's going to be with Alpine, of course. He's the man replacing Fernando Alonso. We had an interesting media session with doctor saf now or after the race and he said ask him about the season and politically how tough he found the pediatric court case. And he said,

"Said, I'm sure like what is really going on, they have to keep Verstappen happy because he's their not to go all Star Wars quote, but he's their only hope, right? Like he currently is the one that is going to win them the championship, Sergio Pérez will not win them championships. But it's a very different situation. I always talk about the binary of Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen. In that Lewis constantly talks about the team. We're a team. We work together. We rise together. We fall together. Everything's about we are one unit, even though he wields a hell of a lot of power in that team, and I'm sure that there are conversations that I had behind closed doors where Lewis says, actually, this is what we're going to do. But you never ever get the sense publicly that Lewis Hamilton is bigger than Toto Wolff. In the Red Bull camp, I would argue you don't get that same sense. I think you get, you get the sense of it probably changed as of last week, but there have been multiple instances where you can see that they're almost afraid to upset Verstappen. And they have to if he says jump, they say how high. And that's a very, very precarious place for a team to be in because nobody should be bigger than the team. What you've just said reminds me that last week on the radio when they crossed the line, Christian was straight on the radio to Perez to say, I'm sorry. And that felt like that was his natural as a compassionate human being as his team boss, he immediately said, I'm so sorry. After Perez asked for the drivers to be swapped in the sprint, that it wasn't discussed. As an option for the Grand Prix itself, because they're saying that they shouldn't have left it late, they left it to the last lap. Well, actually, if you scroll back through F one TV and listen to radio calls, even with the slight delay in when we hear the radio versus what we see on screen wasn't done on the last lap, it wasn't mentioned on the last lap, Sergio Pérez. There were multiple multiple reminders to Verstappen. Got it. Well, Sergio Pérez got it at least three laps from the end, if not four. And you're telling me that they left it to the last lap to tell max. I highly, highly doubt that. So there are holes in there argument for what happened. And it just does smack like I'm so I'm so on the it's more that the way that Red Bull have gone about it that's irking me and making me quite frustrated with them as an entity. But at the same time, had we been talking about Lewis Hamilton and Bottas and Bottas constantly her, asking for help, then I might have said screw Bottas. Get up there and be faster or get up there and do better. But I think it's that it's the power play that is the more interesting factor here for me when we were talking about this example. Especially when max had nothing to lose. I think he's come across as very selfish. He's come as cross as very belligerent. I think he would probably admit that he knows he didn't come across well. I think he was shocked with the level of negativity that he got from last weekend and I think that you could see that again in the press conference when he was talking about the amount of abuse that him and his family received. Drivers are selfish by design. I think they have to be. Yeah. But at the same time, you've won everything. If one everything, like, if anything, it makes you look better if you're having to give like a toe to your much slower teammate. It makes you look far better. If you are helping, you know. Oh, I'll help him out go on guys. I'd like to know what Kevin would think about that actually. We've got a lot to come to Kev. But I tell you what, we'll take a quick break and make care of another thumbnail. It'll be worth waiting for. We'll come back and we'll give Kev the floor and we'll talk about some other drivers we say goodbye to in Formula One and maybe team bosses that have sat on the pit wall for the very final time. Stick around back next. All right, let's talk a lot about how the second place is the story who would have thought it of the final race of the season. And whether weather actually, let me throw another variable into the mix. Add this to your bullet point list of things to talk about. Whether clinching second place in the driver's championship at least, which is the best result Ferrari have had since 2018, is enough to keep Mathieu bonato in a job when the rumors this week were that he was being lined up to be replaced and that he is not on speaking terms with Charles Leclerc. What? That also seems like a crazy rumor. Where do you want to start, really? Where do you want to start? Literally second place. Like a stress ball I'm having to squeeze dude because of this. I don't really know where to start. Okay, so first of all, I agree with Jess that the Verstappen has the control of Red Bull. I don't actually think it's entirely unheralded at Red Bull because I think Vettel wasn't told off when he should have been at various points when he was there because he was the Red Bull protege. They knew they needed to hang on to him. So he got away with things that he probably shouldn't have done multi 21 turkey 2010. I think the difference now is obviously there's no Dietrich matter shits above everyone who can say well this is what we're doing because I'm in charge. Probably the Verstappen family is probably got more clout within the paddock and within the situation than the Vettel clan would have done. And I think probably as we've just been talking about Vettel is a fundamentally really nice guy, whereas I don't think that we would necessarily say that about maxi still maturing, so we don't know where it's going to be in ten years. I think that that's an issue. How much of an issue is it for the team? It can go either way. In the Vettel case, it didn't matter for Red Bull too much because it wasn't Vettel guy that was their problem. But if you go back to it in center at McLaren in the early 90s, it got to the point where he was pretty much called in the shots to the point where he rock up on a Thursday or Friday 93 to decide, yeah, I'm going to race this weekend. All the time while trying to engineer himself into a William's seat, McLaren spent lots of money on Cuban center because he was the thing to have. Which Ron Dennis later said, but that actually could tell our development of all the trick stuff that was on the Williams, which senator then went and got into anyway. And then when how long was it after senator left at McLaren won against four years before they even won another Grand Prix.

"Is it going to be a big picture of Vettel in a small picture of Verstappen, but then again Verstappen's just an absolutely dominant season? Is it something like 17 or how many wins as he had with any sprints? Our world with sprints as well. But we don't count then. Don't pull me into the sprint nonsense. I'm sorry. Just a little started to the main course. Let's not get carried away. We're counting those as well. Otherwise, this is statistics will be even more screwed up. And as someone who likes 6 next year. Until presumably we should NASCAR point in 36 races, but it's a tricky one. I have been thinking about that tonight. I think in terms of the content and the magazine, it's going to be about it's going to be a lot about the Grand Prix and the record breaking. I've done a piece on comparing Verstappen's record breaking season versus other great seasons, so I think max and of course is the fight for second as well, which we would have to have to weave in there somehow. But yeah, there will definitely be a slot somewhere on there for said because that's the feel good, that's the feel good story of the weekend, right? Everyone. Everyone likes him. And actually, I think he's always been a pretty good character. I know that he was for a while. It was all this young German in a team that's never won anything before. And people's noses out of joint. Actually, you know, he's always been someone more interested in the sport on sports history than a lot of drivers. He correctly Christian Horner over the radio once about previous world title winners. I'm sure we've all seen the video I've been reading off all the world champions going back from now to 1950. That's pretty cool. Other people are going to rock up in their own FW 14 B at the British Grand Prix as well. You can't not like him really. And I think that Lewis Hamilton being outspoken about things he believed in is kind of perhaps added to Seb's feeling of confidence in maturity. Yeah, I can have a say as well. And the two of them have been of real force for good beyond F one. Probably since the pandemic really the last two or three years has been when they've really found their voice. So I agree with what Jess is. I think we've definitely not heard the last from special investment. I hope we haven't, too. But I'd be very surprised if he does in Alonzo and comes back and starts to grow any more Grand Prix. I think we're done. I think he's on two 9 9. I suspect it's a bit of a kind of most of what he's doing. He probably quite likes that as well, that's a nice little quirk. He'll be back, but I don't think he'll be back as a Grand Prix driver. But of course, the website is there 24/7 at auto sport dot com and one of the articles you can read on that right now is all of our writers talking about their favorite Seb Vettel moments. Luke, I should quickly ask before we get on to talking about Verstappen. What was your favorite Vettel moment that you wrote for that? Mine was the 2013 Singapore Grand Prix which is a bit of an odd one because it was just another dominant Seb vessel win through that run of 9 victories at the end of 2013. But that was one of the first F one races I covered actually on site and in that race vessel would have got a poll obviously, only the one lap in Q three didn't even bother going for a second run. Then start the race, went off into the distance. And then there was a safety car that basically completely wiped away his lead and sort of made it like it was going to be pretty tough for him. But then afterwards, he pulled away at two seconds per lap and that's not that's not a gap you've seen nowadays in F one. You look back through the record books and like the 88 McLaren or whatever and obviously the advantage was so big. But I just remember just the way he just pumped out lap after lap after lap and made this huge lead. Yeah, that was my favorite at said moment. Let's talk about today's race winner, Max Verstappen. It was one of those races where I'm sure it's not easy because it's flippant to say that, but he made it look easy, which is, of course, the hallmark of any great driver, let alone a great double world champion. Whatever tyre strategy, Red Bull went with and today the winning strategy was was that one stop was anyone catching Max Verstappen today, could anyone zigged when he Zach was there any way to do it because the Ferraris gave it a go, but it looked like the one stop was the quickest way to run a race today. Yeah, there wasn't there wasn't really anyone who could get close to Versace and staff. I think there was a moment when he came out after his stop and Perez was a bit closer than he had been before the stop. And part of me thought, oh, my Red Bull might want to maybe do something here, just to give chaco, give checker that pizza in the championship, absolutely confirm obviously that that wasn't going to happen because it was just that the undercut was so powerful that Chekhov being able to make up quite a lot of ground and get close to max and the max again peeled off into the distance with his fresher tyres.

"It really wore on me as the winter went on and even when we came back. I just didn't enjoy that aspect of Formula One. I know lots of people like that gladiatorial aspect, particularly on social media, or they support their team. It's a bit like people who come home when their football team has won or lost at the weekend. That's where they're going to have a good or a bad night. But I'm like, well, you weren't on the pitch. So I'm glad you're invested, but it's a sport and it's a sport we love. So it's really nice. And so did you get a chance to talk to sev this weekend or was he swamped? All of the auto sport contingent that are out here managed to do a track run with which was we were saying how very different it was from when Alonso retired, there was obviously there was stuff done like we were remembering that the driver briefing room got painted in all those murals, which since got painted over because he came back. And it would be very weird for all the drivers to have to sit in a briefing room with tributes to a guy who's still there. So that didn't last too long. But it was just such a wholesome thing to have organized. And it was said that organized that run. It wasn't organized by anybody else it was, it was the media. He put it on for the media and for the teams because and he said, last night he gave a little speech just before we went on the run. And he said, you know, this is just something that I've always enjoyed. I've always enjoyed running the tracks and I would just love to share it with all of you who have been here for my career. And yeah, he ran with Mick and it was so hot and so sweaty and I had not hydrated in preparation for this. I think I'd had a double espresso before we hit the track, which was in a complete rookie error. But we were all noticing as well. Like the conditions out here are actually, even though we're only a couple of weeks earlier, say, then last year, it's so hot here. Like this week has been sweltering. I did feel like, oh, maybe this is a little insight into what the drivers go through when they're losing buckets and buckets of bodily fluid and weight because of how hot it is out here. But no, it was just such a really wholesome thing to do. And there's just been a bunch of really wholesome things happening, and I think it's just testament to what a guy Vettel is. There have been so many stories coming out this weekend about how much he's been there for drivers, Ricardo said that he's picked up the phone and called Ricardo at tough times to help him max even gave the story of when he had his crash last year at Silverstone and ended up in the hospital when he got back to the paddock. Seb was waiting for him and his motor home to make sure he was okay. And there aren't that many people, you know, there are some plenty lovely guys that are driving on this grid. But it just feels like Vettel goes that extra mile and I don't think there was a bad word to be said about Vettel from anybody and everybody wanted to make sure that he had the send off that he deserved. And I think he did. So it was really, yeah, it was really nice to be here and to see it and I hope it translated back at home as well just like how much he's been a valued member of Formula One and how much he's going to be missed. Do you think we're seeing back in the Formula One paddock at some point, not necessarily testing next year? So it was interesting. He said, I mean, he said in the press conferences on Thursday, this place has a funny way of being able to draw you back in. So whether or not he doesn't Alonso and comes back in a, would it see a seat becomes available or if he comes back in a different guise because I think his campaigning he did actually did an Instagram Live this evening. I don't know if anybody again managed to catch that. It was, it was on just after the couple of hours after the race finished. But he jumped on Instagram Live and he wanted to explain the T-shirt that he was wearing as he came into the paddock, which had a picture of the world and it just said the word invitation underneath it and essentially that was connected to his message after the race where he's saying that he gave the reasons as to why he is pushing the climate change agenda so much and he said it had to do with his kids being born and then he lost his father in law and said that the juxtaposition of life and death made him think differently about the world and what his lifestyle had been, you know, he was very honest about the fact that I flew around in private jets and I drive a gas guzzling Formula One car. So I think he's not he knows that he's not lived a perfect life but now that he knows that he can use his platform to try and drive good and I don't think he's done with that. So I don't know, maybe there will be some kind of role for him in helping F one find better sustainability or you know maybe he'll just want to come back to make sure that he's got a platform and can use his voice for good now that he's not burning the fuel. Shall we say? Curve now, Kevin, we got you've got a magazine to get out for Thursday. Last week, of course, green masthead with Russell's first win normally at a color that we've reserved for auto sport turning from red to green when Lewis Hamilton wins a title. But certainly won't be doing that next week, but who's going on the front cover of the magazine? Is it going to be a big picture of Vettel in a small picture of Verstappen, but then again Verstappen's just an absolutely dominant season? Is it something like 17 or how many wins as he had

Yeah, he spoke about it this evening and said basically he wants to use next year in this third driver role at Red Bull to work out, does he want to keep racing? And he can quite easily walk away midseason and Mick Schumacher, of course, we've got to see what his next step is, maybe a reserve roller, Mercedes, total wolves make pretty clear they'd be interested in talking to him about that. Nicholas sati as well, obviously his final race in F one, he said he's treating it as though it'll be his final Grand Prix start. Pat Simmons as well at Formula One, I believe it's his final race.

"I certainly can leak hello and hello to the listeners and the sat nav, which is talking to Matthew Otis was F one editor driving the same. He promises to drive very gently and respectfully on the way home, but I've seen no evidence of it so far in the weekend. So let's see what happens. But yes, I really pleasant evening actually here at the aspirin track. Yeah, we've got an email from Aston Martin yesterday whilst Matt and I were out trackside during FP one, staying out of the blazing sun we've managed to get down to the grandstand at the first hairpin at the end of the first sector, enjoying some shade. It's a lovely email drop. And yes, come along, run the track Sebastian vet, that's how he's choosing to say goodbye to the F one paddock specifically, obviously I'm sure I'll have his own message for the fans and everybody watching on with the Grand Prix tomorrow. So yeah, basically everybody headed down to the start finish line. About 9 p.m. local time and everyone was given a T-shirt, which says, thank you to Sebastian and commemorates his championships, the main picture is him next to his Red Bull in 2013 at the Indian Grand Prix where he secured his fourth world title. But yes, and then after that, there was a group photo, Charles Leclerc turned up. I noticed he didn't then take part in the run, but very nice film to come and say goodbye to his former teammate. Mick Schumacher was there. Group photo at the start and then off we went on the run and there was a fair few well basically there was a bit of skullduggery from one of the auto sport team, which was to go against the team order, which was to run with each other all the way around you, isn't it? I was me, yes. I very quickly multi 21, both of you and Matthew, but I think that's that's what vet would have wanted quite frankly. And at one point I did end up overtaking him. And I thought, well, this is good. He's running, having a chat with Mick Schumacher. Maybe I'm having to beat Sebastian vet in a race. That would be a great story, but having held him off for a good two thirds of the lap just before the happy at the end of the second sector he absolutely put the jets on and legged it past everybody. As did Mick. But what was really nice was that when we got to the end, my victory comfortably assured over you and Matt. Vettel was still around. He clapped people in. High 5 people, he posed for selfies, with loads and loads and loads of people. It was really nice. The musical and all the PA systems in all the various stadium sections were blaring out with music coming from his dad's iPod. He was following along with the family on one of those big trucks that they take F one guests around in. So yeah, it's the real feel good evening. Yeah, it's been really amazing. And I think the number of people who turned out, I think we're well into over a hundred I would say Democrats. Maybe close to 200. It's really hard to tell because obviously everybody ended up in the same kit. Loads of mechanics from loads of different teams, yeah, just everybody seems to be out enjoying themselves. The FIA were there FOM officials, yeah, it was really nice. Really, really wonderful. I think very, very fitting way for get everyone together and say goodbye. Said that he loves running tracks, which I didn't actually know, but that's quite a cool thing that he likes to do and yeah, just a really great evening and I think a lovely way to continue to sign off ahead of his final Grand Prix tomorrow. As I said in the intro, he will start from 9th place on the grid. And I think that there were so many like onboards and bits of qualifying on the world food following WhatsApp was doing, probably more than usual. But he got all the way through, made it right the way through his key three, a really impressive display from him today. It was that really the maximum you think he could have got out the Aston Martin getting through to Q three. I think so. I think obviously best of the rest would be 7th place behind the Red Bull Ferrari and Mercedes cars. He was there briefly because the only other one set of soft tyres to use in the last part of qualifying ended up getting shuffled down a couple of spots by Lando Norris and Esteban ocon, but they are in, let's face it much faster cars than the Aston, yes, and he's much improved. Vettel said that you know it's doing what he wants, he's feeling good with it. But also he revealed that just this last race there's a bit of emotion getting into the car for the final time speaking to so it got to a person I know at Aston Martin, who actually saw on the run ahead of me and he was my he was once veteran. He was my target. I thought I'll catch up to my mate Joe. Did you? No, he hadn't done. He's a fellow marathon runner, and it's been 5 years since I did my last marathon, so I had no chance of catching him. But yet, basically, Vettel said, basically, sorry, I've been told there is a bit of emotion going around the team. This weekend, and it's added in an extra dimension. They've got to try and keep a lid on, and Vettel himself apparently been very light note. We must focus, when you've got a job to do, we can still perhaps be alpha in the constructors championship. But yeah, he admitted a bit emotional getting into qualifying for the final time. But he did a fantastic job, revealed afterwards that as it was his final race, he gave him something. He gave me an extra little lift if I'm being very cynical grand Prix at a time. I would say, well, where has he been all seasons, Sebastian, but we're giving that an accident performance and let's see what you can do in the rest of the way. Fernando Alonso actually said that he was sort of looking in his mirrors quite a lot to make sure he wasn't getting insects away. He's starting 11th on the grid. He said, don't worry, I'll take care of Seb as and he's going to look after him and make sure he doesn't get in any funny business off the line or anything like that. So yeah, I think all eyes will be on set to see how he bows out tomorrow. I think guaranteed to be a very emotional day for the whole F one paddock. But emotions aside, there were still people fighting for pole position and it was Max Verstappen who again tops qualifying. Do you think he was out of reach for everybody today? Seemed like it, yeah, I mean, obviously missed FP one, but quicken FP two. That's something we know it's all season, even if he misses a bit of various practice sessions. He's on it right from the start. And yeah, I think Red Bull just really confirms they really did get it wrong on the tyres in that one practice sessions and now the setup in Brazil last weekend, they're right back on form. Also, you say that Alonso was looking in these mirrors to stay out of veterans way. What the Red Bull drivers were. Because in both key one and Q three Vettel kept flying up behind them in the final corner and was getting understandably frustrated to be losing out, leaving that little bit of down force and grip as he flew through that final corner, which is really critical. We saw Max Verstappen in his first run in Q three, coming very, very close to exceeding track limits. And that ultimately could have been very, very costly. He did end up doing two laps that were good enough for

"So if everyone's hot takes out there, there's definitely three thoughts to the story. I'm just not your championship anyway. You're not taking home the trophy, sell them. The only outcome I expect from this appeal now is just for the Mercedes dozen withdraw it, which I wouldn't be surprised by either. That's usually what it has and the line will be for the good of the sport. That's usually the pro forma line. They whip out when these kind of things happen. We've seen them many times from Aston Martin in particular. But I suspect that they're going to try and extract from the FIA, which I wouldn't think would be unfair either in my opinion anyway. That things could have been better handled at the end, having some cars unlike themselves and not others, I think was a messy conclusion. And I think as a result, I always think that the end of the race would have been more exciting, had they not let them any unwrap themselves, because Verstappen would have had to pass three or four laptop cars. I would have been blue flagged as well. But it would have probably generated the past right at the end. We would have had to I think while still have won, but it would have been not as straightforward as it was, or alternatively, a rule that I feel like we've talked about before. Why do they have to unlock themselves? Why don't they all just drop to the back? Then we might have even got two laps of racing in. I mean, he still would have settled one even more. So it would have at least been non controversial. You know, those cars are never a lap down. He's not going to suddenly be very competitive at the end of the race again unless you lose Hamilton email, of course. But I just think that there are different that could be a rewriting of the rules. And the combination of F one rules and sporting regulations, I mean, hundreds of pages of the timing. But can't I all just be they can all just be a lap down? I continue to be a lap down, no? I mean, I don't know how well the point is that I am semantics on this. Yes. I think the only issue that needs to be sorted and I don't think this is absolutely not going to result in a change of result because it would not only be grossly uncomfortable for everyone involved if suddenly Verstappen was not the champion. The ABC would have to issue a new portion notification to my phone, and I think they didn't get one F one notification that you'd use. That'll be no good at all. But is that the situation probably could have been handled better? And I think that's what Mercedes will be pursuing is just like a little nod that things could have gone better. But in the end of the day, Lewis Hamilton will not be the world champion. That is the result. And you know what? In a championship it's closest to this. It was always going to be decided by some small dumb thing. Whether it was in Abu Dhabi or some other race. With 8 points, that could have been you could find 8 points anywhere. You could finite points in like a slow tire change or you could find out points in the qualifying lap. You could find that anywhere. Of course, this was the last race, but you could just swap this with another race when you remember this season it would be a very uncontroversial swapping with Austrian Grand Prix that Verstappen dominated by like half a minute and then the ending was very non controversial. You got to think about it like that or just run it in reverse and that's the way the 2021 championship unfolded. This is the part of box of neutrals where we stop talking about the championship and stop complaining online and tell you that support for boxing neutrals all this season in fact has been brought to you by manscaped. It's my great pleasure to say for the final time certainly this line..

"We'll thank you. Mark. Who'd have thought the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix might be interesting and worthwhile talking about? That is the most impressive thing in 2021. The way kids started so innocently went from changes here. Here's a nice graph to illustrate the radius corners, which was great because I've always connoisseur of the F one 20 21 franchise. Never enjoyed the Mickey Mouse chicanes of Abu Dhabi. It was almost I would design for a different time when the cars were a lot more quad gargantuan. In size and proportions, the truck changes were pretty good. I mean, it wasn't, didn't generate, I guess this thrilling ricing that we expected. No, the result we got was different. Well, yes. That was a different very different rate. Especially if you've been I feel like you used to ride it was again the big winner of the everyday world for China because fourth in I mean he's had such a mixed bag of season. I think for the next, let's start with the very first rise for you. Yeah, so some people benefited I think from the changes. Yes, Christian Horner accused Karen chandrak of making it a Mercedes track, which is actually doing it for Yuki. How did we know? That's the controversy. It's under the radar. I wouldn't be surprised if someone's protesting that result after these rights. Exactly. Very strong result from Mickey sonoda. And good on it. You know what bloody good on it, if he's going to stick around for at least another year in Alfa tauri deserves the fourth place. Very nearly a party of I know, look, we will talk about other things, but he was only like, I wish I had the results in front of me. Like, less than a second away from a podium. We're going to have the cenote. And it is like being at a party and something bad is like someone is vomited all over the wall or something. And I'm describing what happened to this. No, no, that didn't happen. But if a college stand there and go. Yeah, I'm happy with it. Yeah, okay, but I'm not the story you want to talk to. Talk about today. Even worse, I think judging by the transcript I was not in the press conference, but that it was just max and science. I don't think Louis was in there. I don't think he made it there. Or he was just asked to know questions for some reason, but Carlos was in the post race. Yeah, yeah, okay. So I think he was going on. Yeah, I think he had reasons to be upset. But I like that he had to turn up and let people didn't ask him questions with max just there and he, you know. Very great first year for everybody by the way. I think that's the other underrated story. Well, I mean, he finished ahead of Charles the click on points. Shouldn't be on the list? He did. He finished fourth in the standings. I think he's good like that, Carlos. It's very steady to the hand. He'd fit. This Ferrari, again, in various wash ups of tame reviews, which will save a later on in future editions. Yeah, very strange for Ferrari. It wasn't as a title connection that I had last year. I don't know, it's kind of like, I don't know what they're doing. The 2022 car better be bloody good because it's been a strange thing. You said that supper was so far ahead of lobster all in the SMS and that one caught me. I wouldn't pick that, but there we go. Well, good for Carlos in that case. So that's your PD. You flew onto the right off. Yeah, exactly. Well, not on this show. The talks all the big issues give us a call. What else is going to have the whole types of what happens? Let's talk about other things. We'll do the cool take things. I also have to do this right. I don't know. I'm sure Nick was the same thing. He decides to look for staff at world champion first time, very good for him. And not as good for the result obviously. Unfortunate result of Lewis. He did not win. It was very close. He dominated the race. I would say, in fact, he was the world champion for 56. You have people say that Felipe Massa was to world champion for one lap or half a life whatever. Lewis Hamilton was a world champion with 57 and 58 laps. And then was it not after that for the candidate? In fact, yes, although the live ladder for half a lap, the womb showed that he was ahead and all of a sudden he said something racist and the audience turned out he didn't do that. But you understand off of him. He said something about taxes. He's going to raise taxes to pay for a bridge and then all of a sudden everyone voted for Max Verstappen. He was the winner of the championship. That's how I assume things working for me to one. And it was, I mean, it was in many respects the ending that the season, not necessarily, but certainly warranted, which is a scene in the deserves. So there's no point saying a second word. But after the year we had, they couldn't be as straightforward ending this season. No, it was. We protested by saying who knows what's going to happen by the time we next catch up and record?.

"I mean, he questioned it. I don't know what he's 50 50 if I'll stay in. Yeah, he's like, I don't know why they've say something like I don't know why they signed me up. I keep damaging the car. Oh, yeah. Which, I mean, Yuki. It's Apple Tyree's best result in the year in terms of for a double points finish. So again, it's not really a talking point because we've had so much else and also just quickly clipping back to car of science. I mean, every time this guy has been on the podium, it's been overshadowed by myself. No one cares when Carlos signs on the podium. That poor guy genuinely. So again, a similarly without the tower is like, I wish we had more time on this podcast to talk about it because it was great. Gasly went long. I mean, he was him and alongside were the two last guys to pick. So again, and then Yuki's tenacity, I think, was just was just brilliant and brought home a good amazing result out. Yuki for so long has been saying my confidence is back, I'm back to where I was in Bahrain when I started. And I actually wrote off Saudi saying, okay, he's got the confidence back, but he needs a result back all of this up and he's finally got it. He's ended the season with that. A great performance and yeah, with Gaussian P 5 as well, a really good day for powerful Atari. They fall just shy of Alpine and that fight for P 5 and the constructors. And I said to Pierre after the race, I was like, you've been more consistent about being kind of at the bigger one off results of sleep the win in Hungary. And he was like, yeah, well, just the way it is, but no, he said, he's just so proud of what him and alvare and you keep done this season. So yeah, again, another team where it's like, it's good vibes when the year. So it was really, really cool to see. And a fantastic send off for Honda as well. World champion and also after Harry getting a really, really solid result there. So yeah, I'm sure they are very, very happy, but yeah, living on a high, leaving on a high. Let's now talk because we're running out of time. You're going to have to do a mega rundown on your heads up now, but let's talk about Kimmy because final race of Formula One season came to a premature and but it's, you know, that's a big loss of character leaving the sport isn't it? It is, yeah, I saw on the grid, I've made a point of going down to see Kimi's car and everything like that. And it was lovely had min two and his kids on the grid, which is really nice to see. All of his alpha mechanics were wearing special Kimmy T-shirt. Giovanni's crew were as well. And yeah, it was one of those races where you saw he was fired on the older so obviously it's never going to be anything special to sign off. And then he had a spin and then ultimately retired. He said over the road at the sheet of break issue, but it was actually an issue with the left rear tire that caused the spin and then the retirement in the end. And he yesterday was meant to do the FI written media pen and didn't. And the FI went over to him and said, he needs to do that tomorrow. He was like, well, I don't want to. And they were like, you need to, like, come on. And he said, I'll say. And I was stood there and I thought he's not going to come over. And he came over and I was like, fantastic. And he only spoke for about a minute or so, but he was very, very calm very nice and yeah, and I sort of said like, that's it now. You're done, and he said, I'm just looking forward to going and getting my normal life now. And that's really the vibe we've got from him, and I did a phenomenal interview with him on Friday, he got some really pretty interesting answers about F one and life in the sport, and that would be, again, on auto sport over the winter. But yeah, F one is losing a huge huge character. And I think that on the grid, I was kind of like, I've got this amazing title fight and there's celebrities everywhere and whatever, but the one thing I was most like, oh no, it's Kimi. Like he's going. So yeah, that same go. Saddam ends with the DNF because you never want to finish like that. But yeah, what a man. What a career. And we may never see him race again, but if so, be it then so big. He's given so much to us. Yeah, those were lovely scenes with him and his family on the grid. They were so so lovely his kids are absolutely adorable. Jess, any words for Kimmy? Well, not for him. I don't know. He's listening to the podcast. Anyway, it's about Kimmy as we reflect on his final race. I mean, I think Luke put it brilliantly, but he's just, he's.

"The software will be a massive advantage at the start, particularly Hamilton on the mediums. And then you could think the Red Bull will potentially say right max, you're in the lead out of town one, use all the life, go for it early, keep track position using aggressive undercut to stay ahead because if it is very hard to overtake as it potentially, I think probably will be. Just educated guess what then talk about teams in the paddock. Then that keeps them ahead and as we saw in 2010, as we've seen always through the years Abu Dhabi very, very hard to overtake even with these changes, that would make sense. Equally, if Mercedes goes, right? They've done that. They've used all the life in their office, their Brooks happening they've kept him on track with the critical track position. Sen Hamilton long, the only thing they can do, get a massive tire advantage tire delta in terms of the life, the age of the tires, it really could be a thriller. As we've seen in Spain, as we saw in France, as we saw in Austin, absolutely now bite up with the championship on the line. And here turn 5, that new left hander at the start of the second set could be absolutely critical because it's so wide. It's also deceptively downhill. I went out and watched trackside in FB one down there is a great place for the spectators seats that are going to have an amazing view in the back comes through early. But you can take different lines in there and you can definitely do that if you've got fresher tires better grip, so potentially that could be a point where I want to either maybe never head or do something that gets in really, really close to Verstappen if that's how the race pans out that way. Yeah, it's going to be so interesting to see how everything plays out tomorrow. Let's talk about the performance of Lewis and the Mercedes today. He said in the post session interviews that he just couldn't get anything more out of the car. Were you surprised though by the gap between him and max? Yeah, I think I am, because sometimes I said earlier, Mercedes did look stronger throughout practice. But it has got things wrong with the tyres earlier on in 2021. And it just seems that that is what happened again today. You need to do the preparation for these ties to them to get in the workings very, very tricky need to be going quite hard on the outlap in sector three. And did many drivers up and down the up and down the grid really, but yeah, Lewis Hamilton, I think he's referencing the press conference just in maybe the track conditions just went a little bit away from Mercedes today. But equally the other Red Bull Sergio Pérez down in fourth behind the nurse was going to come and talk about I'm sure. So yeah, fair play to Los Angeles, and I think it's just worth remembering again at this stage that the Red Bull packages the vases back into the season. There's no doubt about it. Max was that in ten propositions, absolutely brilliant. And deserving of those propositions, but also what a fantastic job Hamilton Mercedes are doing to still be in the fight. With one race to go. And looking ahead to tomorrow, I mean, aside from the expected nerves and tension that I imagine comes with a title deciding final race. How do you think that Mercedes will be feeling about the pace of that Mac showed today? Probably annoyed because, you know, they know what the perfect strategy is. It's starting for position, disappearing the distance at the start, and when the race, but I wouldn't say they're overly worried. They've got the experience of winning 7 world title, what type of doubles? Of course, in 2014 to fall back on, they get a Nico Rosberg winning here in 2016. It's interesting Hamilton's asked about that. How does it compare the last time he was in a time to decide in Abu Dhabi? And actually, he's done it four times 2010, 2014, 2016 and now turning 21. Pierre 2026 in the last time, any F one world title went down to the wire against Nico Rosberg he's something a million times better. You've seen it in a much happier place in his life basically was also said almost cryptically because he also got asked to sort of follow up to that bit of the press conference. Are you a better driver than you were in 2016? He said yes. And teammate. But yeah, about Mercedes being worried about pace stuff and show today. No, I think they'll take things in their strides. They're very, very, very competent team. Plus also, they know they've got the Lewis Hamilton factor in the race tomorrow. You just can not count him out because of what he can do with the tires. The relentless pace he can show. So yeah, it's going to be an absolute thriller. I already seen tomorrow. And let's talk now about Lando Norris, P three, really solid result there. How did he pull that one out the bag? Yeah, I suppose him in Qatar a couple of races ago and we did this once one interview, which we have to read in auto sport magazine. That will end the year. In a couple of weeks time. And just setting, you know, you look at your season results in 2019 and 2020. Very good, especially last year. And then again, this year. And it's happening again this year. They tail off towards the end. Is that coincidence? Or is that something you've got to work on? He was like, essentially, he's just coincidence and you think of the incident he had with science in Brazil, but he really hit back strong in Abu Dhabi last year and he's done it the same again. So it's really interesting seeing things work out again for landowners, but as they're one of the stars of the season. But in terms of third place, brilliant result, but he's only just ahead of Sergio Pérez. He once again, you know, we've talked about this many many times. If this happens on poll, he has to be second. Pointing result for him, even though he was very, very good to give him the toe. And the first running Q three he was ahead of him the second guy in Q three had his hand is shot to get on the front row. And Carlos Sainz Jr., fourth place, what a lap from the Ferrari driver like absolutely fractions behind land. I don't know. It's very easily, I've been starting third tomorrow. But in terms of no idea, what's interesting with him is that he went from being annoyed of course to come across a Red Bull late in the lap on his first Q three run, then it's absolutely nailed it on the last one. So this track just seeks McLaren a bit better compared to Brazil and Qatar where particularly compared to Ferrari there were not showing great pace, although I said he was caught up in that incident with science at the start in Brazil and he was so unlucky in Saudi Arabia last time with the red flag rule rule change in the fact that he stopped and others he didn't allow to get ready to get ahead of him and he's got stuck in the back from there. He's absolutely mega here as last year proved and he's ending on a high which frankly is what his 2021 deserves. Really, really solid performance from him and a brilliant way to round out the year, but of.

"Why are you expecting that? Well, hello, Ariana and hello listeners. Got to be honest. Now I was not. Lewis Hamilton topped FP three, but I think also looking back crucially, he was looking better over a single lap in FP two, which is obviously the most representative practice session of the weekend because it takes place in that. That's why in tonight's conditions that qualifying in the race takes place. Mercedes seemed fairly confident that things were sort of swing closer together between Mercedes and Red Bull represent a bit of a step behind yesterday, but crucially ahead of the head in terms of the long run, which I'm sure we'll get on to talking about later on. Mercedes thinking things will close up and Verstappen absolutely stunned them. Ripple moved to a low down force package, skinny rear wing, trying an FP three, went ahead with that in qualifying as having said that made the car much better. Had some question marks of what was happening there wasn't feeling particularly happy, said it was up and down all through practice, but Q one felt better. It'd be a fine tuning bit of fiddling and it's got better mess and better. And yeah, absolutely stunning proposition well done to him. It is the result that he should have had from 89% of the lap in Jeddah last week when it just went wrong at the final corner there. So brilliant. Yeah, wasn't expecting that, but fair play, great result from actress having. Well, I spoke to several people in the paddock today and general consensus was that the Mercedes was looking stronger and many were predicting Lewis would take it, but of course you can never count max out and he came through it with a really impressive lap there. What did you make of Red Bull strategy today is setting the fastest times on the softs in Q two and as a result setting themselves up to start the race on this office as well and then also check out riding the tofu Mac. Do you think that they were smart strategy caused by the team? It's an interesting one. Yes and no. In terms of yes, the toe tactics worked treat. Gained yet a bit of time. But also, as we saw in Mexico, it can go badly wrong when you try things like that. And actually, if you think about Red Bull over the course season, it's sort of much more than Mercedes is often tried to be a bit too clever in terms of the way those things sort of things. But again, as I said with Verstappen, fair play were absolutely brilliantly. It was really interesting. You said in the press conference that he discussed it with Paris, but when I asked if they'd had a chance to actually practice it out on track, he said, no, they didn't. They didn't sort of coordinate it in terms of giving it a go in any of the practice sessions. They just had the confidence that they would be able to nail it in one go. And they absolutely did with their with pairs leading with that inter turn 9. What is interesting is that Verstappen doesn't think that's the reason he got proposition. He reckons it was only worth a tenth of a second. He just nailed the rest of the lap of the exit from the chicane 7 80 chicane, particularly impressive. But yeah, again, absolutely brilliant from Verstappen and from Red Bull and it is interesting to also put the same sort of question to Lewis Hamilton he got asked about it in the press conference. Why didn't Mercedes do a toe? Because it's worked out and said brilliantly repel do you look very smart, but also could have looked very bad, but they didn't. But the point about that is, is that Louis Hamilton says, well, we don't really do that because it can go to disastrously wrong as it did for Red Bull in Mexico when Perez and Stafford came across yeki tsunoda. So we have seen it go wrong for Red Bull, but it didn't this time, so fair enough. Yeah, you have a bit of starting on the softs for the race tomorrow. And that's not what Verstappen wanted to do, at least that's what he's saying. And the reason why phrases like that is because Lewis Hamilton bizarrely was like, oh, you don't normally look up at one only locks up at her money, obviously hasn't watching any of the on boards from asses, this weekend, but pages that I'm skeptical with everything and then if he really locked up, then okay, but he sort of genuinely found it quite odd. But I think if you listen to his staff's reaction, you get a real sense that he didn't want to do what he did on the medium tyres halfway through Q two. He's right. I think ideally, you would want to start on the medium tires. I'm sure we'll come to talk about later on. So yeah, it wasn't a deliberate ploy from Red Bull as far as far as I can tell. Yeah, just circumstances, but equally, they could have gone back to a new set of mediums they didn't. They would like, right, okay? That's happened. Move on to the next move on to the next situation. And then out on the softs. I think that max starting on this off tomorrow will definitely spice up that restart. How wide do you think that that decision is looking ahead to the whole duration of the race? Do you think that is a choice that could potentially backfire on them? Against of maybe yes, maybe no, but what I would say is that it's definitely not the best strategy on paper in terms of how you would want to approach the race tomorrow, but it also really, really depends on how easy it is to overtake it with these track changes. Like talking to some teams through the interesting, if you look at turn 9, the first hairpin, let that happen at the end of this first act of sector. And turn 9 as well at the opposite end of the track. The braking zones are very, very, very short, so unless you've got a massive tire delta, don't think overtaking is going to be particularly easy there. That said, at the start of the lap those sector one, if you can stay behind it on the car follow very, very closely through those sweeping downhill bends, which I ran down around track tonight. It's us an amazing facility here. Got a great view coming out of town for all the way down to that stadium section where that new turn 5 years. But anyway, with that, if you can stay close through there, stay closer to 5, overtaking should be possible with DRS into the chicane that splits up the two backtracks. But we just don't know. In terms of the soft tires and what happens in car and it potentially backfiring. Rebel will look to launch away really, really well..

"It will go to Lewis. I just think that car looked better today on single lap pace especially. The Red Bull wasn't as comfortable on Singapore, especially the temperatures dropped away. It has been a bit of a slight weakness if the Red Bull this season so I think I'll go for Lewis just based on the performance there and kind of the timing of the sessions tomorrow. And based on what their feedback was saying that ripple, especially with so they were lacking on single lap pace. Okay, Lewis for Paul and now the big question who do you think will end up as the 2021 world champion? I'm going to have to see on the fence, I think, because I don't think anyone knows or has the answer or can make a prediction. I think it is genuinely too tight to call. I think even after qualifying tomorrow might be too tight to call, because I think there are potential swings of performance between single lap pace and race pace. There's a strategic elements. There are the possibility of incidents the possible interference between Perez and Bottas and that battle at the front. I think there's two many factors at play to even have a stab at thinking who's going to come out on top. You know, my prediction is that it's too close to call that you do have to tune in on Sunday to watch this race. It may well be one of those events where the first ten laps you get convinced that one of the drivers looks on course to win the championship. Then the momentum swings back the other way and then it can come back the other way. So maybe some twists and turns and incidents and spectacular moments that nobody can predict. And then we'll end up with our winner at the end and then try and dissect it. But hopefully it's a hope. It's a less contentious race than we had in Saudi Arabia that hope is just absolutely brilliant or battle between Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen Red Bull Mercedes where it's won by the best team and the best drive on the day doing the better job. And we don't have to have any involvement with stewards. We don't want a massive controversy. Let's just get a great motor race and drop out and sign off on what I hope we'll look back on as one of the greatest F one world championships in history. It could just go either way, but I hope we agree that this is a race that you have to have to tune in to enjoy it, soak it all up and I hope that we are treated to an absolutely fantastic race with both drivers giving it their absolute all and signing off on what has been a fantastic fantastic season. Jon, thank you so so much for joining me. It's been an absolute pleasure speaking with you today and I'd rather race weekend this season so far enjoy your weekend tear out in Abu Dhabi and enjoy the race on Sunday of course I'm sure we'll catch up again. Thank you to all of our listeners for tuning in and move back tomorrow with the qualifying pod..

"Ones I think is more difficult for drivers to judges the final corner, the white lines defined as the edge of the track and it's a place you carry a lot of momentum. You've done your lap. You need to nail it and you're pushing wide and I think we saw quite a lot on the exit of turn 16 today as people just carry too much speed in and run wide. But I think that will be the critical and qualifying tomorrow just to see if drivers are willing to push it to take it to the max to push that push that limit there without going too far and losing the lap time at all. Thank you for that clarification drawn. Now, as I mentioned at the start of the podcast, we come into the weekend without title rivals on equal points first time in 47 years that we've had this situation. Do you think that the new style track particularly suits Mercedes or Red Bull better? It's actually hard to judge who it seems better really. I saw heard Christian Horner was speaking on sky today to Korean chandok who was involved in the track changes a little bit and joking that you took out all the corners, Mercedes doesn't like obviously the Red Bull is quite good on the slow speed, stuff the agility. Traction. So the old configuration may well have seated Red Bull better. We saw last year, Red Bull, one or other factors at play. Lewis come back from having COVID. The team has spent a lot of practice working on development tires rather than set up for the race. So different things at place. It was kind of an unreal picture last year of form. It was clear the Red Bull was competitive there, but now I think it's much more much more equal the straits obviously favor Mercedes higher speed corners, favor Mercedes, but it doesn't seem to be much much in it today. I think it could come down to setup and tire temperatures. I think in the warmer temperature of the day, the rebels seemed quicker more on it. And the Mercedes didn't seem as comfortable, but as the temperature dropped away, which normally shifts the car balance, you need to get the kind of better gripping and up to temperature better. I think then the Mercedes excelled a little bit and the Red Bull fell away, especially on single lap pace. So I think that's the only difference we've seen. Today, and I still think it's too close to call. I still think we don't know. I think we've seen we see more potential of themselves on a single lap. And potentially more potential from the Red Bull over long distances, but again it's Friday night. The simulator boys will be working flat out tonight in broccoli and Milton Keynes working through the processes and data and setups and I think we'll know a lot more maybe even not the end of P three because it takes place in the wrong conditions. But the temperatures drop in into qualifying, I think then you'll definitely get the clear indication of where things are at. That is the storyline of this season to close to call. I've spoken to so many different people in the paddock so far this weekend and everyone has said, you know, they're just completely told on how this weekend and will play out. And that is what makes it so so exciting. But there has been so much talk coming into this weekend about what to expect from the title rivals how things might unfold. Of course, we're not going to actually speak to you again on the pod ahead of race day. Do you think that this track will set us up for an exciting finale between the two teams though? Yeah, I know in the past, I would have been criticized for having delivering quite boring races, but I think that the track changes allied to the fact that it's a world championship decider whichever driver and the point situation is fantastic because neither of them can afford to finish second or behind the rival. It's not as if max can safely finish second or Lewis can safely finish second or just shadow him home. Just kind of set up one of those finales. It doesn't quite come alive. This is winner takes all absolutely finely poised. Lewis needs to finish ahead of max. If he doesn't finish, or finishes behind max, it's over. And max can't afford for Lu to finish head, then he's off the championship. So I think there's a lot of play a lot of tension. It's going to come down to the performance of over the long run. It can come down to strategy. You can come down to the rolls of the teammates in disrupting the battle head, but I think all the ingredients are there. Neither car seems to have had particularly stretched its legs. So far to leave you thinking, yep, this team's got it nailed that car looks better. It's still completely open. And I think that's exactly what we wanted, really. Yeah, that is exactly what we want as fans. Now looking further down the pack third in the constructors is very almost secured with Ferrari 38.5 points ahead of McLaren, but which team do you reckon we'll fare better this weekend? Because things are still really tight between Charles Lando and Carlos with 8.5 points covering the three of them. I think in terms of the constructors championship in that fight for third place, I think very slim possibility of McLaren overhauling it would take a phenomenal spectacular race of the Mercedes and Red Bulls all retiring to open a scenario where Ferrari or McLaren can come out there. I think that run of triple header results for McLaren where they scored four points in three races. Obviously they had Daniel's problem in Mexico. Disappointed in Brazil and then the Qatar tire failure for Lando cost the massively Ferrari stretched its legs and built that gap up. And I think on the grander scheme of things, McLaren accept that they probably had probably fourth place is what they deserve this season that Ferrari has probably had a pretty quick car from the off didn't capitalize early on when McLaren did and was bringing in all those results. So I think slight disappointment they didn't take third, but I think fourth place is still very good. They've built potential built some momentum. And I think it does set up a fascinating seeing if Ferrari can kind of build on what it's seen this year and step up and be battling Mercedes and Red Bull equally from the start of 2022. Another big storyline that we have this weekend is that it is Kimmy's last race weekend in a Formula One. Big loss to the sport and unfortunately today he ended up in the barriers after a fairly heavy shun at the end of FP two. Have you heard anything more from him or the team about that incident? Not heard very much. I think all Kimi said after they were trying some things on the car, sounds like setups. Ahead of the weekend, obviously looking let's save the session. You'll normally do long runs trying to analyze how things are mapping out for the sundown. It's quite I think it's just a perhaps a consequence of the changes of that final hotel sequence at the corners of an open up a bit. So whereas before they were quite low speed, coming out of there wasn't too much on the edge. I think that's cool is now just a bit quicker. You just need to push that little bit harder. And they've remained off camber. So mistakes are punished. And we saw Valtteri Bottas brush the barriers there in FB two quite early on. I think the same thing with Kimi, you accelerate..

Traditional vs. Contemporary Classical Music

"Today we are talking about the somewhat controversial topic of traditional versus contemporary. And this is a debate in pretty much all areas of life or art forms, whether you are thinking literary. So where you have a more traditional or even historical type fiction versus contemporary fiction or in music, if you like the traditional sounding songs, very classical, or a more contemporary pop genre, and obviously to apologize to everything else, like politics, if you have your more traditional people and your more contemporary progressive people anyway, I personally believe that it's important that we can appreciate things on both sides. Of the line. So when it comes to more traditional sounding violin music, you're going to think, especially a lot about Bach baro, classical era, music like Mozart, so here's a little box. Okay, so this very ornate decorative sounding music or you might have something even from the romantic time period, which was 19th century. Right? Now, if you are actually trying to do something more contemporary, you might do a little bit more with improvisation, although actually in the baroque era Bach did improvise a lot. But for example, if this was like twinkle little star. You know, Abu Dhabi in French Mozart did a ton of variations on that. But a contemporary version of that could be.

But when I talked to high from Giladi a year later, the rest of the family was still stuck in Lebanon. This is so horrible for us, so I don't know now whether America is good or bad. 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. But immigrant advocates say the hard work is still ahead. It's not just what they conduce the stroke of the pen. As important as that is, it's just simply step one hobby. Damn. Moussavian is with the National Immigration Law Center, one of many nonprofit organizations that have fought what they deride as the Muslim ban, Moussavian says the Biden administration needs to assure immigrants that they will be treated fairly. 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. They met in Seattle, where she lives as a U. S citizen. After they got married. He applied for a green card, but his application was denied. At that point, we were devastated. Under the rules Rock. 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. Now he's stuck overseas. It's an insult, but we will keep trying. Immigration Hardliners, though, say it would be a mistake to end the travel ban completely. 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. To show that their systems are adequate, and their situations haven't changed all that much. But even some national security experts say, banning all travelers from a country wasn't the answer. Just feel the narrative that the U. S discriminates against Muslims. Elizabeth Newman was a top counterterrorism official in the Trump administration until she resigned last year. These bands damaged our nation's reputation. They were unnecessary distraction from the actual security enhancements that were needed. Newman says. The travel ban tarnished the U.

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

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.

Same goes for long straw. I mean he's a he's an elite level athletes. his body will be of trained to deal with anything thrown at it but if he's still feeling the impacts that really does say a lot. So it's it's really hard to know. I think that lewis will probably want things go smoothly as possible and just back to normal this weekend.

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-.
