"Third is Mercedes behind them with 237 points in fourth as McLaren tied without being who both have 81 points in 6th as Alfa Romeo with 51 points and the next race is July 24th in France. We get a few weeks off between now and then, but the final 11 races of this F one season are going to be really fun, really interesting and I'm curious, who do you think is gonna win? The world title this year. Ferrari, Red Bull, max, Charles Leclerc, and then really the battle I'm very fascinated on a couple of things. First of all, can Mercedes catch up to Ferrari. Ferrari keeps screwing up Mercedes is in a position where they could eventually catch up to Ferrari and then I think galpin is a better team right now than Claire and I'm very fascinated on this battle for fourth. I think Alpine is probably going to finish ahead of McLaren and I didn't see that at the beginning of the year. So they've gained pace. They've gotten better. McLaren is really fallen off. Janet Ricardo is a huge disappointment. And let me know what you think of the final 11 races this year in Formula One. What are you excited for? What do you think is going to happen? And who do you believe is going to win the world title? All right, let's acknowledge it. We are at the halfway point of the Formula One season where 11 races in, there are 11 more races to go, and I want to share the current standings and check in on my thoughts on how every team is doing so far in form of the ones. So here are the constructors standings 11 races in. In first, you get Red Bull with 359 points in second is Ferrari with 303 points and third Mercedes with 237 points, then tied for fourth is with 81 points McLaren and Alpine. In 6, you've got Alfa Romeo with 51 points. 7th is Hass with 34 points 8 this alpha towery with 27 points, 9th is Aston Martin with 18 points and dead last intent is Williams with hey they got a whopping three points in Formula One, which I'm not gonna lie is actually pretty good for them. Also technically McLaren is fourth and Alpine is 5th because they were ahead going into the weekend. So if the year ended today, McLaren would be fourth and Alpine would be 5th, but we'll see his year goes on. I think Alpine's got a great shot to beat McLaren for fourth and Formula One. I want to start off by we'll check in with every team, but I want to start off by talking about Ferrari Ferraris and second place right now. 56 points behind Red Bull. And it's very, very disappointing because Ferrari should probably be leading Formula One right now. They've had engine failure four times this year, it's usually happened, by the way, when they have cars at the front,

"Many times this season. So let's play this recording. Daniel Ricciardo now regrets going to McLaren base off the pace of LP another. Sorry. Which at the moment is mildly concerned he had McLaren going to have the 2022 cars on rocket ship. But that's good. I didn't realize it was so long ago that Alonzo has been on the beside he you're telling me. So the status is what 2014 and Gary and Grand Prix. Which is, you know, about 6 lockdowns ago and the entire pandemic a couple of bushfires ago. And at least the pandemic ago. Or 2674 days between podium. So he didn't get one in McLaren. That's a Ferrari party. Wow. So he's hit. He's gone too. McLaren, buggered off to IndyCar and the WAC for a little bit, then the Dakar rally. And he's come back with that. Which is a nice result. I mean, I know probably Fernando. And I know the reasons why, because it was a big Daniel Ricciardo. I saw his haul it out pain that they couldn't feel the environment. But yeah, but but that's a good news story. I think for Fernando, the multi generational Formula One driver to be able to, yeah, he's still got it. And some of his driving, it was just, you know, Fernando evolved, which is, which is nice to say, and let's go for Alpine. And I think we were discussing last week of the weekend before about how, you know, the surprise surprisingly taught championship battle across the field. You know, Mercedes and Red Bull and then Ferrari McLaren. And then this Alpine alpha tower battle let's go on. So that's blind at a little bit. It's one 37 to one one two now. Channeling my potato Windsor. Between those two. So it's an icon did I can that race? What did he get in there? He did very well. L pain had a very good idea. The sort of a little bit up and down, which is, you know, again, hoping good things for that squad because, you know, serial visibles, hairy plan is a little bit behind on schedule, but there's glimmers of hope for that squad. So yeah, it's a nice little earner for them. Yes, it was Fernando evolved. Strong and bald one might say, but it was also what I thought was interesting. Well, I mean, let me tell you as well. 2014 Hungarian Grand Prix was before even Max Verstappen debuted in Formula One. If you do want to feel particularly yeah, yes, David in 2018. But he was still effectively free agency in formula three. Probably never heard of him. He didn't even get that some pretty short that test he had in F one. I haven't feel signed by then, but that was in Japan where they ran him, I think. Yeah. So he'd just been signed by it. There was a basically a bidding auction. Well, yes. And Red Bull. The history would have gone very differently if they signed with the silver arrows. Hang on, say how about this? I've just looked this up. Thank you Wikipedia. He signed with Thor Rosso or the Red Bull junior program. In August 2014, which would have been now I'm just, I just want to find out when the Hungarian Grand Prix was because theoretically, when Alonso last one, last got a podium. That would have been a maximum was technically a Mercedes driver. He was technically incredible. That's true. I can't be both looking at it so many things. Not enough. But yeah, it's a ran that sort of time frame of when the star of the staff was just about to explore, don't do the Formula One saying. Yes. And there we are, all these years later. It was good news for LP no. I think it's really interesting that in the space of one week and I've pretty much blown away alpha towery because, well, it's hard to say. You don't want to say it's sealed. Because we do still have two races to go and as much as this happened this weekend, it could happen in the opposite direction. What happened to dazzling? I saw that he was pretty high up on the green for the Grand Prix. So they just had a connection. Well, in fact, he started ahead of Alonso, but also got ahead with this great overtaking we've returned three around the outside. But that was really Fernando lots of old. But then, I mean, gasly said elf Atari, the car just didn't have the pace and you could see it with Yuki tsunoda as well who looked like he was going to move up originally. And then just couldn't go anywhere. And unfortunately, after his second stop Gaz Lee got stuck behind, Sebastian Vettel. It was just so he couldn't even score points in the Martin trolley. Yes, absolutely. Yes, did Martin shipping palette was just trundling around? And he couldn't get past overtaking was difficult. And he said anyway, the car was just not quick enough. So it wasn't even necessarily bad strategy. But a really off weekend for them considering gasoline in every practice session and then in qualifying as well as in the top three, I think I'm saying got up for. And for the last couple of weeks, that's pretty much where he's been. Every session he's been sort of top 5, scoring regularly, consistently. And then it's almost a bit of shame, isn't it? The LP just turns up and it's probably a bit of a function of a new track, which again means for the next certainly the next round in Saudi Arabia. We should expect a little bit of a random result potentially in the midfield so close. And then maybe even every Dobby considering that's a little bit new. But there's also this irony, isn't there that we're so used to at this point of the year? Saying, well, you know, Mercedes is one of the championship with the battle for second and third and fourth. Super exciting. But now at the moment, Ferrari's pretty much got third nailed on. Alkane looks locked in for 5th. There's nothing else happening in the constructor standings except the battle for the championship. Yeah, surely it is remarkable that, at this point, I wouldn't have thought either squad would have the upper hand on their respective rivals, especially McLaren considering that we're kind of ending the year looking like on a bit of an upward trajectory, but it kind of went. It packed very quickly and Ferrari just been the quiet achievers, which is ironically, which was the same strategy. McLaren did to get out of the real sort of funk of the JB two engineers with Honda where they just went, you know what, we're just going to quietly chip away and not make any noise for a little bit. And then we will pay out. But I haven't really hasn't really exploded yet. So yeah, like I said, Zack needs to stop driving old F one cars. Rebuild the team again. McLaren scored four points in the last three rounds. That's no good. And then another engine issue, but I think it was what fuel issues with. Yes. Ricardo again, and then landar had just it just wasn't there. So I really hope it's a case of well they've turned off the 2021 tap because presumably they raid sort of old car magazines. I have no money. They would discuss that last week. I think it came out like the night of the podcast, and then was refuted the day after. Yeah, which obviously I think is a case of, well, given that McLaren of Papua, you kind of have to sort of take the word that that deal is not happening. I mean, you know, it's I wouldn't close the door on it, but that would have been mentioned if that came true. I don't think a lot of people didn't like that. It was like a step into a parallel universe where McLaren was sold out to a magic car company and people didn't really like that because I think everyone enjoys how relatively independent McLaren is. But yeah, well, I should be steering, okay, so yeah, watch that spice, but hopefully the 2022 cars are a rocket ship because yeah, it's been a little bit underwhelming, perhaps you could siphon for McLaren give them the last couple of years where they've really looked up and up and up. Yes, it has been just a disappointing conclusion for them. Even with the rice win. But you need consistently good results and it just hasn't been there since since then. Yeah, it's just been very flat for McLaren, very unfortunate for McLaren, Landon Norris did have a puncture light in the race,.

"Let's talk about Fernando Alonso next because it was great day for him, his first podium since 2014 Qatar's cheering, unfortunately, you can't see that because of course there's any podcast, but he's looking very, very happy. I'm going to start with you because you just look so excited about this. Well, as you well know, one of GP racing's contributors. One of our great contributors is Andrew Benson, the BBC sports chief Formula One writer and also chief Fernando Alonso, fanboy. Has anyone checked in on that? Well, he was keeping it together in the Christian Horner press conference. He was there, you know, he wasn't, you know, he hadn't painted his face and, you know, popping the champagne cooks, but I imagine he was very excited. And yeah, you know, great, great race for Fernando and his first podium finish since I tasio nuvolari was a boy. Oh, no, sorry. Hungary 2014, very different circumstances. But what a great and very ruthless drive just his opening few corners. That was literally the way he defended his position, certainly against max, and then went around the outside of Pierre gasly to claim what was then second place. Around turn two, just amazing, and put me in mind of no less an eminence than Charlton Heston when he'd said that they would pry his rifle out of my cold, dead hands. You know, he was not going to be parted from that podium position. It was very remarkable. I spoke to some of the Alpine team after the race and they said that they were literally like shaking with anxiety over whether those ties would hold out. What did you think? Yeah, I can imagine. No, it was a fantastic drive is called a set of the brilliant first lap. And that really set him up well. And yeah, I mean, the alpena this weekend has just been so hooked up. And even throughout qualifiers, I think cracky, where's this pace come from? And they've been in a really good groove and yeah, Fernando, I think just, okay, yeah, the penalties helps them a little bit move up the grid, but he just took full advantage of it. And I really did wonder like, okay, oh, I'll think you're gonna be able to keep pace with like say the edit McLaren's, the Ferraris Norris and science behind, but then yeah along so what I think like a 9 second buffer or something you built up to Norris quite early on. So it was quite clear that he was going to top that midfield fight, and it was really a question of would Perez or Bottas be able to be able to catch it. And boss has obviously had his puncture otherwise, yeah, he probably would have got that place. And then I think the deciding moment though was when Red Bull switched Perez to a two stop strategy in Paris claim over the radio immediately after he stopped and when I think he made a mistake here like what are you doing? And his engineer told him, no, no, don't worry, they're going to struggle towards the end. And obviously, he did take huge chunks of time out and without the VAC yet. I think I might have been able to get there. But no, I think Fernando is fantastic. It was nice hearing over the radio as well. Saying I'll tell Esteban and east to defend like a lion. From Hungary when it was Alonso who defended to protect aachen from Hamilton, say he could win the race, and yeah, it was a really cool moment. I think that Fernando, yeah, okay, he's been an I'll admit as well. When he announced he's coming back to F one, and I was like, why? You're not going to be world champion without being. You said McLaren to those difficult years. Well, if I'm not winning, I'm not enjoying it. Why? But he has come back and he's really enjoyed himself and now he's back on the podium. And the competitive hunger of him is just absolutely phenomenal. So now I really, really good drive. Despite sep check off to the rice and obviously calm down a little bit and he said, no, I do understand why they did it and he said that it would have been risky going for the one stop because we stopped so early. Yeah, we could have been in a similar situation with a tire failure. And he kept all of it off by saying, but if anyone was going to deny me of podium, I'm really glad it's Fernando. He deserves it. And I thought that's a really nice touch. That is a nice touch. That's very nice touch. What about Esteban O'Connor as well? Because of course he came home 5th, I think it was, and it's a solid day for the team as a whole. Oh, hugely, because Alpine alpha towery went into this weekend tied on points and that battle for 5th place, which is obviously, I mean, you might think, well, who cares about finishing 5th? But the stakes involved for the constructor championship in the prize money involved is massive. And even like talking to team members, I won't say from which of those teams. But I was talking to one of them on Friday. And they were so saying like the bonus money they said between us finishing 5th and 6th is actually like it's a decent amount where it's like, I really want us to finish 5th. So everyone's invested. But yeah, I mean, and again, that I think is why it kind of compounded things for poor API gazley and for the authority team because they came away empty handed from a weekend where they had a car starting on the front row and Yuki had been pretty quick. And then Alpine much as they did in Hungary, they seized the moments quite one of our esteemed colleagues, and managed to maximize the opportunity that was given to them and came away with a hall of 25 points, which is massive. So it does kind of make you think, okay, is that battle now over? Like, can alpha tower fight back with two races to go, it's gonna be really tough because we've seen alpha target sort of making roads and making roads and recently it was like, okay, well they are the quicker team. It's a master of time until they do get in front and pull ahead. And Alpine to put a complete stop to that now. And a lot of that is down to Fernando Alonso rolling back the years with a brilliant display. And I've also another thing without wishing to ramble on too much longer. He's had fun this weekend. I said after qualifying that apparently he told the engineers, he was like, can you just fill it up with much fuel as you can? Let me just drive it all night. I'll drive that track all night. You really, really enjoyed himself, so yeah, really cool story. I really loved ocon's composure. Having been told, you have to do everything you can to stop Perez getting by you. Elbows out was the fries. And then, of course, Paris just drives by him under DRS, and he must have just kind of thought, well, you know, not going to be able to seize my moment here, am I? There's no moment to be seized. But then rather than capitulating a fought back all the way through to just beautiful and ultimately it wasn't to be. But the fact that he tried it, I kinda thought it good on you, because that is basically real racer material. So on passes, you try and pass them back. You don't just sort of sit there and go, oh well, that's it. So yeah. Thoroughly dependable. A very well done to Alpine to both drivers, as he said espan as well putting on a good show in doom. Doing what he could to support his teammate. I was very impressed with that performance this weekend and happy to see. See the progress they've made. Of course, as we've touched on already after, on the other hand, not a good day so much. What do you think that means for the battle between them to in the constructors? Because we've only got two races left. And it's all swings around about in the season. But what do you reckon for the remaining two loop? Honestly I think it's over. I think barring like a crazy racing Jeddah, which looking at that track layout may be possible, I think it's such a big point swing that yeah, it's gonna take something very big valve for tariffs to be able to recover that gap. So yeah, I mean, it's a bit of a shame. It's nice when we sort of go into the final stages of the season and there's sort of like tied on points or neck and neck to clean Abu Dhabi. But I just think this has been such a knockout blow by.

"Know, it's quite similar to Verstappen in 2019 at Mexico's incident there, the cost in poll. In fact, he passed Bottas crash. You would expect drivers of this caliber at this level to think there's probably going to be a yellow flag. It's tricky. It's very, very tricky. They have got that sort of tunnel vision of our we need to get to the line as fast as we can. But yeah, it's just I suspect this will be quite costly. And I think you said, you know, what sort of penalty could we be looking at? Well, there's sort of there's precedent already set, which actually is very relevant this week. It's Lewis Hamilton, 2020, Austrian Grand Prix passing a in that case, it was a yellow flag marker board, and when Valtteri Bottas had gone off ahead of him there. Well that was brought up in Mercedes appeal to have a right of review. You know, instigating, can we get a writer review into Verstappen's driving in interlagos? And they argued, you know, that it was additional footage that became available then that led to Hamilton's penalty. Now, that's where that thing mattering stops because then you get into all the stewards deciding, you know that he wasn't significantly strategic et cetera in the staff and case in terms of his on board. But why that's relevant is that he passed a single yellow flag on the market board, got a three place grid penalty. So you would assume Bottas and science will get a three place grid penalty. Verstappen, passing double yellow flags, that would be treated more harshly. You would assume at least 5 places. Possibly more, I doubt it. But yeah, that's what I would, that's what I would expect. I could be wrong, but yeah, that's what I expect. So that would definitely shake things up for tomorrow's race. And I'm actually quite intrigued about how things could unfold if that is the case, because there's been so much talk, of course, you know, if Lewis was to win this race in Saudi and max was to come home P two, then they would go into Abu Dhabi level on points. How much potential do you think there is for max to make his way through the park given that lots of the drivers have already commented on the fact that they think they'll be limited overtaking opportunities here because it is just the nature of the track doesn't allow for that. Do you think that this could actually throw a bit of a spanner in the works in terms of this championship battle and this idea that everyone has a bit going down to this final showdown in Abu Dhabi? Massively massively you got to say it has to go down as max's first major error of the season. If he is found found found guilty and things like that, you know, obviously, I know that these are broadcast on our social media channels on autosport in the mornings, maybe don't play out my verdict there before before the actual steward's decision is complete. But what I would say is, yeah, if it does come to it, it has to go down as a big error. And yeah, it really impacted his chances really, really, really does because Lewis Hamilton and I fully expect if it's Lewis Hamilton, Pierre gasly and Fernando Alonso at the head of the field, Lewis Hamilton will just disappear. The race is essentially already one. What's gasly in Alonzo? What are they going to do against the Mercedes at turn one? It's not their race. He's going to disappear off into the distance. Obviously does have to worry about his engine reliability, but if he's not being chased by Max Verstappen in a Red Bull, you know, he can just take it that little bit easier in terms of himself the way he's driving stressing that engine. So yeah, never write off Max Verstappen. Absolutely never write him off. He's very clever people, a Red Bull in terms of strategy. They may be able to use that to get him back ahead. As you say, Arianna, I'm fully expecting it not to be a particularly interesting race because it's such a technical majority of the track. It's corner corner corner corner. Where is the passing going to come? You would expect him to be able to overtake an Alpine and definitely an alpha towery if he comes up behind gas leaks, obviously, you know, there's a sister squads, but yeah, it's going to be difficult. It's going to be difficult getting there. So tricky, very tricky, I expect is the afternoon that matches up and we'll have. And unfortunately, in this instance, if he is found guilty, all his own fault. What we will keep an eye on the steward's decision and of course keep an eye on all of auto sports social media and everything they'll be bringing good news as soon as it breaks. But let's talk about the qualifying ses that we saw today because Lewis Hamilton took that politician and he did so in style with quite a big margin over Max Verstappen there. I mean, four and a half times. That was quite something. What did you make of that performance? Were you expecting him to pull out a lap with such a margin over his closest rival? No, I think even Louis said he was surprised that the gap, I think Red Bull struggling here. You know, we know that Verstappen went back towards a sort of wing setup that he had felt very comfortable with when he topped FB one, you know, he said he didn't feel happy in FP two or FP three, qualifying said it was all right. Just wasn't fast. I think the Mercedes is just hit the ground running. They're really, really nailed it. They've got things comfortable. They actually found this all out on vatu Bottas car. It's the setup that Bottas has been running for the start. The Hamilton went in different way. They deliberately try different things, putting back towards that. And you know, they naturally got together. I think when Bottas says, oh, I'm a bit confused. How can I be so far off when I was heading back to and I think, well, you're seeing the natural progression of if you put them back towards the same sort of setup, Lewis Hamilton is a faster driver. That is what that is what would happen. You know, historically, historically, we know that. And he's been unfortunate for us to end up behind Verstappen at least for the moment because yeah, you would expect that really should have been a front row lockout for Mercedes considering the pace of the car. But at the same time, what a lap for Lewis Hamilton. What a lap. I do wonder whether he's still he's still fueled by that he perceives as that injustice of being sent to the back in qualifying interlagos. These things, these motivational things who sports people can be so important. You know, Tom Brady and the NFL still annoyed about things that happened to him 20 years ago and uses that to bring out his best. So perhaps that's what happening with something. I don't know, but whatever. It was absolutely incredible. You know, three tenths up on his own already best lap. You know, any second running Q three, it was tremendous..

"Are still tied after Brazil. They were tied in the F one standings with a 106 points last weekend or last race. Now they are tied with a 112 points each. That battle for 5th place between alpha towery and Alpine is getting really interesting. It's also kind of sad basically Pierre gasly is fighting alone against the two Alpine drivers Pierre is not getting much help from his rookie teammate Yuki cenote who's only scored 20 points the entire year. I guess it's not horrible to be in 14th as a rookie, your first year in Formula One. I don't want to be too harsh. Do you keep soda, although man, he's definitely not had a great year. But the battle in 5th is really interesting. Pierre gas is alone. He's got 92 points on the year, I guess, I wonder if his back is sore from carrying the albino routine. Like imagine how much alpha towery would be squarely in 5th that they got any real help from their number two driver. But instead of that, because right now you look at Fernando Alonso and that's about knock on. They're both contributing about 50 60 points each. It's pretty even. But that alpha towery team is Pierre gastly alone against the two Alpine drivers and I'm just really curious to see how that finishes does alpha. How are we get 5th? Does alpin get 5th? It's just a really interesting storyline there. A fun battle. Now the battle for third in the constructors standings after this race Ferrari is pulling away from McLaren Ferrari got 5th and 6th tier. McLaren driver Lando Norris had a bad start in Brazil. He got a puncture on lap one, and put him all the way at the back of the grid. He was actually lucky to even stay in the race. He had to finish the entire lap basically with a busted tire. He did get tenth place and one point in Brazil. The other McLaren driver Danny Rick got a power issue did not finish the race. That's a little bit concerning for Mercedes. The Mercedes power team. But that put McLaren way behind in the standings. Now, here are the standings right now in Formula One, and the driver's standing so you have Max Verstappen who leads with 332.5 points. Lewis Hamilton is in second with 318.5 points. And 30th after Botox with 203 points and four through how Sergio Pérez was a 178 points. I feel like I should mention that, but I really only care about the battle for first and second between max and Lewis and the driver standings. In the team or constructor standings, you have Mercedes isn't first with 521.5 points. Red Bulls, and second with 510.5 points. And 30 got Ferrari with 287.5 points and four if you have McLaren with 256 points. It's not completely over for McLaren, but I'm at this point I'd be surprised if McLaren does get third and Formula One just because of the lead that Mercedes that Ferrari has..

"Was it a strange way of letting a car through maybe I mean, it kicks a lot of dust. So, you know, that is slightly distracting for somebody that is trying to be completely and utterly focused on their run to try and get as high up in qualifying as they possibly can. So I don't know was you to know that the whole track was blooming, dusty is anything over Friday and Saturday. So slightly unfair, maybe it was a slight, I don't was he told to move over. I actually haven't had that confirmed, whether or not he was told to move aside by the team. But I think Red Bull really need to watch out about becoming the villain. Because they seem to villainize themselves in what they say. They've had to back down on a number of occasions, or maybe one occasion in particular over the crash at Silverstone. The momentum and the fan momentum was behind them. After Silverstone. And then they managed to completely nasty turn that around and become the bad guys. And I just think it's really, I can understand, obviously, we're in a very, very fraught title battle, both in the constructors. There's a point in the constructors at the moment. It's incredibly close. You know, it's Red Bulls closest bite at the cherry in years. They're going to emotions are going to run high in every session is going to count. But for Christian Horner to come out and to badmouth, a Red Bull driver. To me, it's just smacks. It just smacks wrong. I've called it. We've been cenote as if this is Yuki's kind of second or third or repeat offense blocking the Red Bull drivers. I just think it's bad. Did it kind of come out because of the emotion? Had he thought about it? Would you take it back? Potentially. Is it that much of a big deal no, but we know how quickly fan opinion can turn. And I just think to put that much pressure on one of your young drivers, it is a bit out of order. And unjustly deserved, as I think, you know, we've seen. I'm quite glad that alpha towery can put their foot down and went actually. He did nothing wrong here. He tried to do everything right by your drivers and play the sister team game. And you've come out and told him that it's all his fault. Paris shouldn't have, you know, as JBL said, it looked like parish had a bit of a brain melt moment. And ruined his own lap. So and that obviously then distracted Verstappen. So, yeah, I think it's really unfair. I think doctor Helmut Marko on the grid today talking to sky made it very, very clear that they didn't think so Nodal was in the wrong. So I'm quite glad that they've come out and said that now. But just about, yeah. It was just a bit out of order and rebel just have to watch out. They don't want to become the villain in this. In this saga, but they have sometimes the tendencies of putting themselves in that position, which was easily avoidable. Just don't just don't say it, don't bad mouth, your drivers kind of just kind of support them and say that they're in the right. Seems seems like day one PR stuff, but who am I to say I'm not a team principal? Okay, now before we continue, we want to say a quick thanks to today's podcast sponsor. Everyone knows how important it is to keep their immune system as strong as possible, particularly coming into the cold and flu season. The team at suns are always looking out for ways to help men with their health and they have done it again with their new ultimate immune health supplement. Its formulated from 11 powerful ingredients and includes all the key vitamins minerals and amino acids you need, like D, C, B, zinc, and the plant macca. All the things you expect from a multivitamin. However, it's also got a special ingredient, a beta glucan accord well muon, which is clinically proven in 12 scientific trials. One trial in marathon runners led to a 40% reduction in respiratory infections. Another study is showed a 71% reduction in the number of individuals reporting cold and flu symptoms, so if you're already taking a multivitamin or are looking.

"So they've got the expertise. They've got the know how to make it count. And if Red Bull drops the ball a little bit then there'll be that profit. Obviously, on paper, yeah, it should suit Red Bull, but Mercedes has done it all before. So we'll have to wait and see. It's exciting though, isn't it? It's very exciting. I mean, we are literally getting down to the wire with this. And max is still so cool and calm and collected about it or even though, you know, everyone else is sort of saying, you know, it's really the momentum is really getting behind you and it's just so level headed about it, which does make it even more exciting. I am intrigued to see how the next few races unfold, as you said, Mercedes have done this, it's not the first time. But it's getting close. It's getting very, very close, and it's exciting for us. Let's move further down the field though. To Pierre gasly, who finished an excellent fourth, sort of a lonely race for him. I feel like we have this conversation about Pierre a lot. So we're not going to dwell on it too much, but once again, just solid and consistent and really there's nothing negative really to say about him, is he? He's just doing what he needs to do, but, you know, as we know the future wise, which I know is a controversial topic, some people are like, you know, keep them in Alfa tauri. That's why he's doing well. But a lot of people are saying his performance and his consistency warrants a better seat. What did you make of his weekend Jess will come to you fast? Yeah, I mean, it's kind of bad that we're just kind of getting used to Pierre gasly putting in these amazing performances, but not really having too much to show for it other than obviously a great point hall for alpha Tori, his teammate DNF aside. But on his side of the garage, it's looking it's looking great. I mean, the pace that he had today was incredible. You know, the Ferraris were saying they just couldn't get anywhere close to him. They even had Ferrari having team orders to see if science could eke out more pace out of him, but he just couldn't get anywhere near, I think, just under 7 seconds was as close as they could get in those final stages to him. So yeah, lonely, but very solid drive. And again, I guess it's the age old problem with Formula One, there are only sets, only so many seats. And so many, I guess premier tier seats available. He's tried it once in Red Bull. He didn't get on with it. So whether or not it would be a good place for him to go back to, probably not. You would argue. So for me, I think I heard Jenson Button saying this on the commentary as well. For me, the only thing that he can do is stay where he is and hope that with the new regulations, Alfa tauri gets even more competitive and he can kind of think about winning races with them, but he needs to get himself to a manufacturer, I think. But again, not too many positions available to him there, either. So is the age old problem that there's not enough seats in Formula One? There are enough teams in Formula One. They're under manufacturers in Formula One. So unless something is Formula One, a lot of crazy things happen. We've seen surprise and shock moves from people, I guess, you know, Daniel Ricciardo moving to Renault was a massive shock, no one really expected that. Could we see Pierre gasly Alpine? I'm not sure if that's a great move for him, but yeah, just it almost kind of there's nothing else for us to say, really. We know how great a driver he is. But he's not got much else to think about or go to. So just kind of one of those slightly sad, but also great that we're seeing him put in these performances and show what great driver he is, but yeah, there's not really many places for him to go to be really up there and in those challenging positions. And whilst we are on our tarry, let's quickly touch on Yuki because pretty rough day for him, of course, out in the first corner. And yesterday he had that little dressing down from Red Bull, shall we say? What were your thoughts on that JBL? You mentioned it briefly at the start of the podcast. What were your thoughts on yesterday and how Red Bull handled it? And who was in the wrong as such? I think generally yesterday, sonoda looked really, really good. He looked really good in practice and he looked like he was on top of everything this weekend. And it sort of, the form we've seen in the last few rounds, obviously is being sort of not quite driver coach by Alex album, but Alex Albon is providing support for him in that side of the garage. And he looks much better for it. It looks like he's sort of come out the other side of the difficulty she had earlier in the year and he just needs to sort of have an opportunity to build on that. And today could have been that, you know, he didn't have engine penalties and that kind of thing. And I think in qualifying yesterday in Q three, alpha towery has contended the cenote was aware of the situation. He had the Perez and for staff and behind him. And because he was got through to Q three because they felt that gasoline might need a toe. He was sort of done his bit and was just sort of trying to get off the track and I think Perez saw him ahead. Maybe sort of got a little bit distracted and had a little bit of a brain fade if you like and sort of followed him into that runoff area. And I don't think so notice to blame for that. I really don't. Whatever your sort of opinion on whether it should have been in Q three or not. I'll tell you how to express purpose for him being there. They got him through. He'd got through on merit. He was very, very quick. And he'd done his bit to help gasly out. And he couldn't really disappear off the track. So yeah, I think Red Bull has been very, very unfair on him. We know that Yuki is he's still in his first year he's made mistakes. He's learning, that's kind of what you do as a rookie. You should get a free pass and you first year to, you know, start the season off making a few mistakes. So you know where the limits are. But I think that sort of unfairly got him a reputation and it was very easy for rebel to kind of pin the tail on that particular donkey. And yeah, it was just unfortunate positioning at the time, I think. And then that first corner, it was just a mess. Because what it was him archon and Schumacher kind of three wide in that corner. Him and Schumacher kind of pins it on, or can't go out of it absolutely fine and I don't entirely know how. But Snyder and Schumacher were left by the wayside and that was it for them. And as I said, senator needs a weekend where he can take that form and build on it and get another really good result and he just didn't have that opportunity today because circumstances conspire against him. Jess, what did you make of the Red Bull cenote situation yesterday? We saw the Mercedes admin getting involved and, you know, sending him a motivational message on Twitter. But do you agree with JBL that he was not a fault there and, you know, Red Bull maybe shouldn't have been quite so firm in there was after. Yeah, absolutely..

"This is a circuit that he's raced on many, many times. He has a lot of experience. And this car seems hooked up. He seems to have got a really good setup in that rebel. And so he looks, he looks quite comfortable. And that sort of like precipitated in having that fastest time in FE two. So all four of them really could be in the mix. Obviously, I'd probably swing in favor of one of the Mercedes getting the fastest time. But we'll have to wait and see. It's definitely going to be between those two big guns if you like. And moving on to the battle for third in the constructor championship, Ferrari were looking quick today where they're both drivers in the top 5 and FP one. Despite a spin for Charles, but then in FB two Lando was a second fastest with Daniel 5th fastest. So the tables turning there a little bit between at the two teams. Ferrari have obviously recently given both their drivers that upgraded package, and it seems to have had a positive impact on the car performance. Can you tell us any more about where those gains have actually come from? Yeah, so one of the things Ferrari's done is it's reconfigured. It's battery within the power unit. And both drivers took new power unit components over the last couple of rounds and Ferraris just sort of seemed to kick on. And having had a look at the long run times towards the end of FB two as well. The two teams Ferrari and McLaren have looked really, really close. Both sort of running in the low, one minute 42s hymen one minute 41s. They look to be on a par. You wouldn't say that the circuit the Americas is one of the circuits that is best suited to the McLaren because, you know, you have the towards the end of the lap, the sort of reverse Turkey Turner if you like, which is sort of 1617, that kind of area. It's not great at those particular corners, and you wouldn't expect the McLaren to be sort of so good at navigating the first section. But that's one of the sort of areas where the Ferrari Ferrari really excels. It just sort of seems to ride those curbs really, really nicely. I say that because science did have a little bit of a moment towards the end of FE two. But they seem very, very evenly matched in the sense that they're producing similar lap times, but their strengths do vary. And so, again, this battle as well, like the Mercedes Red Bull one, this is one that's going to go down to the wire as well. Third place, it doesn't, you know, it seems like a little bit of a consolation prize, but with it comes prize money and all of that kind of thing. And a little bit of bragging rights as well. But yeah, the two teams seem very, very evenly matched. Now, moving further down the pack. It was a tricky day for Fernando Alonso today. So I want to touch on him for a moment in FP one we saw him stopping on track pretty early into the session. It brought out the red flag and then in FB two, he had a spin ended up in the barriers at turn 19. He was able to drive back to the pits, but going back to that first incident in FP one. Do we know any more about what the issue was with his car? We don't quite know what the problem with Alonso was in FE one at the moment. But yeah, it was very tricky day. They did manage to get the Alpine going at the end of the end of the session. So he was able to get some laps on the board. And then, yeah, that's been towards the end of FB two. Just spun it turn 19, which is catching a lot of drivers out. And yeah, sort of when managed to get it sort of rearwards into the barrier and didn't do too much damage. You could just kind of scuff an end play and I'm sure there'll be a few other little bits of ancillary damage that Alpine will have a look at and get fixed up for tomorrow. But yeah, it looked like a very, very tricky day for Alpine. And we'll have to sort of wait and see and see if Alonso is able to shake that off and kick on an FP three and get prepared for qualifying in on Saturday. Yeah, we'll see how things unfold for him tomorrow. But sticking with those at midfield teams for a little while, Alpine Aston Martin alpha towery, Alpine currently leading in the standings on a 104 points with alpha Terry behind on 92 and then Aston Martin trading behind a little on 61, what were your thoughts of their performance today? And how well do you think each team will be suited to this track? It's very, very curious in that battle because one of the things I saw on the F one feed was that alpha towery was the third quickest car according to the the performance indicator. But it didn't really pan out that way. Out of the two teams coming out of FP two Lance stroll was obviously the quickest out of those three midfield teams up in Aston Martin, after touri. Going P 6. I'm going to get a really clean running on the soft tire during the quality Sims. So Aston Martin seems to be relatively at home. You know, obviously, it's a sort of similar design ethos of the Mercedes, so obviously from Mercedes does well, then you would kind of expect us to Martin to have a good run too. Avery looked a little bit at C to be honest with you because Pierre gasly only, you know, we usually expect him in the top ten. He's a fixture in the top 6 in qualifying and he was only 12. In FP two, so yeah, the car didn't look that bad on track. It looked, you know, relatively benign handling. But it just didn't seem to sort of have the pace. An Alpine.

"An engine manufacturer in the future firm especially the next generation power units coming twenty five twenty six but in the short term of is a lot for rebelled. Go from a effects. You're racing team and chassis maker to an engine manufacturers in the space of a few months. So they need to arrange the deal with honda so honda will continue to supply kind of the manufacturing of the engines racing engineering support all background for the next twelve months Before full transition to red bull in twenty twenty three and pau this ray shiver seclude ripple supporting honda's young driver program will continue to see whatever these are enough might motorsport. Something just keeps a bit of a link between rebel and honda keeps honda close to motor sport. So they're not ten in the back on it entirely and obviously there's always that if you've got a ton of the link is always try to hook them back in at some point in the future Should honda have a change of heart. And especially you know. Maybe where the world's automative industry is going to go in the next ten fifteen years as love of electric cars at the moment but More more questions about the wells infrastructure. Is it going to be at a cape with everybody. Having the electric car is suitable for a lot of people's kind of realistic needs of what they use a car for F one's going on the sustainable fuels push say you know five ten years time. Honda could fill actually of manufacturers pushing on sustainable fuels in different propulsion systems. Maybe electricity in other words go. Maybe we need to be back in. We have it now. Let's turn our attention to the teams. And how they farren stain how things might shape them as the weekend on. Ferrari were looking very strong from today's runnings. Well charlotte Especially as i said p to f. b. to They had a good hit a good year hit yesterday as well call us his taking the penalty for the new the new spec hybrid system which he will be take. He'll be getting this weekend. Charlotte plot of course already has in his call What did you make of that performance today and how the call is suiting. The track looks looks. Good look strong. We know the for our as good on high doubtfuls than us. Oh see monaco. The clerk was on pole. Did that she start there Back was on pole Sequoias mason progress. This tract with high grip is high. Downforce i think grip levels are more important than efficiency. They get some of attracts so looks all good. Nick ferrari can kind of nail a good ray setup to look after tires then could be could be caused strong weekend for them I think creek critical aspect will be managing the thing. The right front hair has taken a bit of a battering Especially through tonight So i think critical to ferrari's performance isn't necessarily how strong are being qualifying tomorrow. We'll be how they match look after that those front tires because being their weakness Some venue so far this season definitely gonna be interesting to see how it plays especially whether they play a part in this battle that lewis is gonna have trying to get off the pot of them when he doesn't she get there and we have the red bull the voucher sas. I'm louis fighting to get on those spots. Will the ferraris be in the mix that causing Causing some drama. Technically we will see. But let's talk about alpha towery now They've had a bit of a disappointing loss couple of races today. We saw an ghastly as well he had ever moment. How do you think they're gonna fat this we can do. You think they'll be feeling more confident coming into this track or do you think that this could be an weekend by ever difficult one thing. They they've had a bit of a battering the last few races. I think france tossed said. Today it's been a nightmare that the cause being quick we've seen all season. It's been quick in qualifying Has been mostly up there throughout the entire season in qualifying as strong car every single app but time and again things has happened on a sunday to to go wrong whether it's Gang velden incidents Whether it's Mechanical problems Where wrong strategy choices or tar choices Just things seemed to go wrong on sundays. Which have hampered that the point scoring buffing that the problems the last two races where they've got things badly wrong Shows that often acts as a bit of a spur to try to refocus everybody and get everyone pointing in the right direction. So he'd hope there's been quite a big kind of investigation inquest after the last race to the bottom of what. They did wrong why they did it wrong. How do again second finally start delivering on that potential. That car is quick Is should be up there. You know fighting for that front end of that midfield with his talent and the quality. That carb just hasn't happened so far. This season hasn't bought as you said. Hopefully that we spied on by the the difficult. We have patchy fog. We will see them back home because it is brilliant to see the potential that drives have pig especially when he is able to actually get the call who lined up with how he wants said he's able to really compete and put it closer to the of timesheets. Let's talk about mclaren. We have a couple of minutes. Laughs now off to the heartbreak of loss race for london. I'm sure he's had time to reflect digest on that The mclarens have had some really strong showing throughout the even. If it hasn't always materialized how would have liked as in sachi but how do you think that they will be approaching this weekend. Resort in practice sessions down. You recall it was out of the top. Ten in bite sessions but lando was was pete us peace and f. b. to at and five down in one i think he was p. Seven how do you think they're approaching this weekend. At how'd you think that midfield facile is going to shape up amongst mclaren that goes competitors ferrari alfa tarries alpine's etc the disappointed by the outcome of russia. A think they'll also say understand the positive that we can that is the most The most competitive spend from one for all one to a monster pole position saatchi and could have one. So i mean that's incredibly good position for the team to be into build on realize the momentum that getting that we shop or after Russia a greater understanding of kind of the risk fee reward battle when you're fighting for wins Something that mclaren hasn't been involved in for and got you're making critical decisions as the the lead. We're rice in. It's much much harder to come into the pits and stop for tyres when you're leading a race than is with nothing to lose in second place When you're going on the attack so bit of.

Maybe not school trick will be to sign ormond and it was. It was shame because it seemed like they ci lit up from about lap. Thirty eight thirty nine. They got the hard switched on and they actually closed the gap to batas and they looked at a time actually to be threatening the Run as they were closing in. But i think the length of time it took them whether that was managing ties and then pushing once they knew that they had the life in them to get the end. And maybe that was a miscalculation all we noted. The ferrari has a bit of a problem as often with the higher at harder compound tyres switching that on the maybe that that was something in there as well but they they looked like they looked reasonably competitive. When we're talking about ferrari slightly run at the race starts may be because of getting those tires switched on again but the clock seemed pretty happy with painful and science i think is probably just very glad to see the back of mums. So yeah i think moving forward they just need to have a look into that that tie switching on situation because it's something that keeps kind of bugging them onset tracks compounds and let's not forget the next topic george russell in the points.

And even then agree , isn't it? These are three. So the best if you move swift to next year and then does a year in F one in 23. I can't see Mercedes putting him in that team alongside Russell after just one season. So the door is open. If Hamilton leaves, but then would they go for Verstappen or would they go for? I mean, Alonso would probably still want to drive at that point. Oh my God. Yeah. We can fantasize about this all we want, but yeah, for now that it's going to be Russell and Hamilton next year and that Mercedes Benz but yeah, we'll see what happens with Gaza. I hope he gets a chance at a better team, but I don't see it for a couple of years probably. I'll be honest. Anyway, those are all the drives we've gone through.

I do race previews, which you've joined me on one for the cursed Belgian Grand Prix. The race that wasn't here. The race had never happened. Then I do a race review where I write everyone's performance to a driver of the month vote because I have a real problem with the driver of the day.

With the alex voice stamp of approval tacitly owning some percentage of their ip earnings. Presumably from here on in on him. I say you gotta you gotta you gotta get into that action. But he's potentially. He's certainly i think he's sixth. In the standings tarot not alex jake's he's not in the standings at the moment Which means look he's probably not highest on the but he's on the right uh somewhere because he's quite highly rated in fact the only had one he was three wasn't he knew he started racing in two part of the way through. He's after he campaign last year. I think you've memory saves. I don't remember a lot of things from australia. So maybe memory doesn't serve but anyway make of it. What you will have uncovered effect. Yes well it is except i. It's getting covered. It's just long lockdown affected. Suppose long yeah. That's long lock dam suffering tonight. It's town let's look at the drive a market as it stands and let's say what we think is going to happen mercedes. We know. they've got one space eight but has to save the moment. Red bull racing hasn't resigned sergio perez. Today i've got one alpha towery que. They haven't officially resigned. Pig as a new peace and order but that sort of an open secret in fact guys lease or help one of the year and he's contract so he'll be at either alpha tower. Your red bull racing. I guess we shouldn't necessarily take it for granted. We there williams has george. Russell seat unsigned at the moment. But nicholas the tv's understood to have another year and he's contract alfa romeo has no unsigned nexia. And haas doesn't yet have makes jamaica signed up at a suggested it's pretty much done deal pending ferrari side of the bargain. Karori might yet decide to put me macaroni for mayor so we don't know for certain although i think they do want to take it slow with him and then of course that means we've got a whole bunch of drivers out of contract couple who on racing at the moment nico berg daniel. Caveat and then causing formula to oscar piaster leading to at the moment from guangzhou catelli lot and rubbish was island ending to the series. But robert schwartzman is and that's sort of everyone on the f. one radar iran. At the moment. i've got a feeding to only a handful of sates but it all starts with what mercedes is gonna do. It does feel like this market is slightly slightly ever rided. Erica george russell. Hyler effect that we've got going on here because as soon as he is that does kind of a. I don't think this is the case but this very much the the blank second sailor. It bowl is i guess. In the instance in some kind of a failure of plate due diligence on this path and not twenty in the second. Say that the sadi's sure like red bull be bad to welcome with open arms. But i don't think that's going to be the case so basically it'll be well drop george russell. One of the worst kept drive a sacred in formula one history in recent years Mercedes and in. What's the rest of the dominos fall after that. But it's what's a bit of a backlog disappointingly as well a bit of a backlog of some really tell us as young drivers needing to make that next step into into formula one. You've got the obviously that you got the haas of sorry. The alfa romeo sates up for grabs personally a little bit done with iraq. In if i is sort of rates hade saturday up. Get out on that. it's of wrong. It'd be like it'd be likely channel saving doing ray of morning drive reunion. Not the same often applies much. Change them at time. Obviously something's yeah. We have peak music face when good morning. Israeli was last day. Of course referring to the week. It's a so you know the say situation. I think he's going to be the most. Is it going to be the second most interesting part of the draw for market. Because it's gonna be will they weren't i saw in. Jv nazi into that safe again as sort of a little bit taking. Leave it In that sense but Yeah it's it's gonna be pretty much who's going to be is going to be wind mercedes toward russell and then hurries effort. I have than the rest of it is just. We'll we'll say it's true. Because i really are only two seats on the greed. That are interesting because at least one of them is open. Right like kim european presumably. He's not going to be around. And potentially antonio juvenile although. I think you'll probably be retained. Nobody might be because you know. Yes joe address. Veltri boathouse might not be a straight swap because seems like he might go to alfa romeo but the swap on the insurgency. Apparently i guess you'll stay racing but it does mean that we've got these potential because it doesn't feel like happens. That often does it. They'd like sania driver. Like kimmy racket and moves on. And then you just have a new guy who may warrant the state hopefully someone who warns to save rather than someone walking up because they've got money but the people.

"Seventy seven points alpha towery six with sixty eight aston martin's got forty eight williams has ten points. Alfa romeo has three and haas has zero. What a great way to send us off into the month long summer break. Yeah pretty great. I was off on thousand City for race any overtaking. It was really good. Let's take it to the news. I did not end up catching the actual podium ceremony. Oh do scary. How we're yeah. Tell me about rob. No i mean like so hell like every driver seemed out of breath after the race but it was like hot. It was humid. You kind of expect that. But also i think we're also used to these guys like sort of bouncing back likely. They're they're incredible athletes. You know they you out of the car. They look completely gassed You see in five minutes later. They've they've successor. Recovered hamilton was having trouble speaking during the interview he was breathing so hard And then on the podium ceremony his body language was just all wrong He was desperately like Like slamming water But the thing that really scares shit out of me was a point where you know. They changed their hats On the podium. When he bent down he was just bracing himself in a pair beholding himself up on those ridiculous giant champagne magnums. They add like he was like using it as a basically impromptu Like crutch to keep from falling over and then got back on his feet and then during the whole part with they spray the champagne. He couldn't shake the bottle he just stood there like frozen on the third. Step of the podium Just sorta like rocking it back and forth and not moving like it was. He looked bad. He looked on while it was. It was alarming because it was like it was one of those things where you would see someone. You're seeing someone in distress. And that's kinda how it read and it appears that indeed. He wasn't distrust. yes danny. What is this article from autosport. Yeah so i guess the the shakeout from this is that there's a couple of quotes which point towards His battle with cove it last year and the quote here. I'm so exhausted. Afterwards it was one of the weirdest experience of the said. Hamilton who missed last year secure grand prix in december due to cove nineteen i real dizziness and everything. Got a bit blurry on the podium. I've been fighting all year really health. You know staying healthy after what happened at the end of last year and it's still a battle i haven't spoken to anyone particularly badische but it's been lingering i remember the effects of i trading's been different than send the levels of fatigue. You is different and it's a real challenge will continue to try and train and prepare the rest i can. Maybe it's i. I don't know but it's definitely not had. I've definitely not had that experience. I had something similar silverstone but this is way worse. See people are speculating whether or not this is the effect of quote unquote. What we have called calmed to known as long kovic which is the sort of general. It's quite a general vague term. Because it seems to encompass a lot of different types of kind of post cova health repercussions that people may have some people think that they have a sort of an underlying fatigue or issue. That feels like a sort of low low noise version of covert..

Stop with yet another pole position and starting alongside him on the front very smart will be none other than landowners. Who had a fantastic session today. Sergio perez loaded into with the mercedes drivers training in fourth and fifth after they were unable to improve in that final key. Three laps as was the case. In last weekend's grand prix the sap inset poll on his first run in the final part of qualifying norris had been second off the opening runs and held onto take his best career. Qualifying spot peres jumped to third with his final lap which bumped hamilton brought us down as neither driver went faster on my second attempt in q. Three they were followed by the alpha. Towery papier as and yuki sonoda with sebastian vessel. Taking eight but he now faces a post qualifying investigation for appearing to impede fernando alonzo at the end of q. To george russell to ca- sensational ninth for williams in his fescue three appearance for the team. Which a call through to the final part of qualifying for the fast time. Since the twenty eighteen italian grand prix russell had anyone attempting kitri but managed to beat launched. Show to ninth place. An impressively managed to qualify on the medium compounds. The ferrari stayed on the medium ties throughout q two but with knocked out by russia's final effort call signs lead charlotte in eleventh while daniel ricardo was unable to find enough time on his final run and ended up that team. Alex tylenol cas or dispose. Growing pre editor is with me. Alex how are you. How is your day going and what did you make of qualifying going very. Well thank you yes it was a it was excellent qualifying session. Well unless you're mercedes. I suppose not the way onshore lewis money to celebrate his new his new contract announcement by even making it into the top three in fact my colleague leak smith and i were discussing how we were going to play things in the in the press conference. Such as as as as usual having the mercedes drivers in their interns. What we were going to ask. Larry is need contract where we're gonna play things and then obviously didn't didn't even end up back because he qualified fourth so that was turn up for the books. Yeah very very interesting. I mean fantastic if you'll report actually sat on of course but solano norris mclaren. He's been he's been rapid in. Australia is quick lost yards. He gets on the podium brilliant last weekend so he was interesting. Hearing talk on thursday. He was saying you so. I ended up at feeling a little bit. Frustrated not beaten the mercedes cars last weekend and then come a little bit. Scruffy in practice took about f. p. three you know. Awesome that in the in the press conference new source saying you know. That's the time to make those mistakes. You know explain that you ran off the road after catching another car. The final corner at one point but in qualifying absolutely in command was brilliant and very nearly beaten to pole position. I mean it was. It was interesting. I think that was more nor down the fact that the reporting only faster because it was that is that the head of the queue so he was a bit surprised to find himself there. I'm basically that member. He wasn't picking up a type of many other cars down straight line speed. And so yeah i think think would have been would have been fortunate in a way if he had go ahead but yet absolutely magnificent from him and yes. That's a great race earthquakes tamari as you mentioned. We're gonna dig into landowners illegitimate more. But let's start with our pole-sitter max happen. I mean i don't really know what to say are speaking to a lot of people in the paddock over the last couple of days and the majority of them that i spoke to was still saying that max was a firm favourite four pole position today and evidently they were absolutely right because once again he's come through robbed pole but he has since said that his poll was pretty bad. Can you explain a little bit more about why he thinks that because most people be pretty pleased with grabbing that pole position. I think it was more just the fact that he was feeling really good in q. One and the game does one running key. One snag is out now is enough to get through easily and then in key to he got through on that. I was going to be crucial when it comes to start in the race. Tomorrow to be on the mediums and you saw everything was being very smooth and then it came to key three. There was audio temperature. Go down just a little bit cloud. Cover the tight. The best of the track conditions away. Maybe that unsettled. It seems everyone to a certain extent. And the i just didn't felt that key three wasn't very smooth the key three. He's pretty good. But i think he was just expecting a little bit more. So that's the first lap and keith reading the expecting a little bit more and then yeah as i said you know he was basically saying i'd have been better off staying in the garbage than going going out and running it ahead of the pack so i think he's more. I think he was more well. I think he was saying. The poll app itself was bad. It's more just sort of anti-climactic ours. Ghost that faster on my ass running. And i just didn't because it just didn't work out with the placings in the key but nevertheless absolutely brilliant again from napa and i think he was absolutely note on favorite was using talking to the teams yesterday. You know there was this feeling that yes mercedes ended up beheading enough bt but even even mercedes themselves did not think that made them favorites. They they didn't they certainly expecting for snapping to know. I was engine turned up and to find a pace which is of course. Exactly what happened. And yeah i think i think we've we've we've mercedes is interesting. I think that they're focused. More on the race in terms of they sacrificed a little bit of one lap. Speed and that skinner's or exaggerate the gap ever so slightly to red bull but being beaten mclaren is a real shock to then. They think that that mclaren just what the software. That's yeah it will be interesting to see what happens in the race but critically from cds peres. Is there in place as well so he could play a really crucial role in helping his team. Stained front tomorrow. Is exactly what i was about to say. Of course chacko p three tomorrow. Red bull must be feeling quietly confident about that. Because that's where you want them you want them upfront. We used to seeing the mercedes splitting them tomorrow. No we have the mclaren loss weekend. We did see perez gang past landau. So i'm sure that he's going to be hoping for the same this weekend and then they could just bring hyme that one too but let's go back to london us because i think he deserves some more time off to such a stellar performance. Today he was so so close to paul and there was a second there when he went poppel in that fast sector where it looked like actually maybe.

"Up on the top spot. Now from the fast he was making places but then he was under pressure from lewis for a big chunk of the race. But he didn't crumble did he. And that's exactly what he wants from the second driver completely. This was exactly. The today was his job a surge repairs high by rebel to do that. They've needed and they've lacked for so long regarded to max and surgery. Did it even more brilliantly than it on track because we didn't know He was losing hundred pressure during most of that race The team was really weird. Really worried He wasn't gonna even make it to the finish. So huge concerns over that front of see when when max went out. I mean you could sense the stress on the rebel pit will cost ninety. Could sense Maxine there but the concern equally was that sergio wasn't gonna finish the race. And here's an open golfer. Lewis and mercedes to take twenty five points that five lots in the end with a looks almost impossible But rebel manager brilliantly. I think we switched on. I think if you look back at the replay switched on surgeries. Engine off the restarted. Last possible moment Just to in case those extra twenty thirty seconds of engine running would would be the difference between finishing not finishing so yet greater check. I i'm really happy for him. I think it's good when we see drivers list potential. We've always we saw last year. What what check do and it makes it all tonight. Chris horner check actually doing better than expected. So it's i think anyone would have expected vessel to be standing on my second spot. I mean i suspect we wouldn't have but he put in a fantastic drive today. Great overtakes get gaza lead to get pasta claw on british looks in control of his drive for the whole day and ultimately it more than paid opted. Now yeah he just. He nailed that fast in that his time management was was incredible and not give him track position. Which around here is so critical. So yeah i mean. The thought that he was leading the race for about. I think he was five laps. In the end it was caught on one of those. What year is it kind of name seeing vessel up in impe one which was obviously had the funds are crazy when they when they were saying that but yeah it was just this is the vessel. We used to saying it was elbows al. It was it was proper proper racing. I needed fab job and i'm so glad i mean pe- two's amazing p. Three would have been stellar but the fact that he ended up on the second second spot up there with checker. I mean as you said party. Today's just it's just a brilliant. Wholesome podium and i know we don't just one podiums that make everyone feel good every single one of those drivers on that podium fully deserved to be there and it wasn't just a case of like a race to the race to the line of so. Yeah absolutely top. Job by vessel is also one of those one of those occasions where qualifying eleventh proved to be the proved to be a benefit because we see it so many times in the past driver qualifies eleventh and says as fantastic. I get free choice. I can do something different than it doesn't quite pan out that way. But he took the same same compound. Soft tyres lays ahead but those extra few laps. Allied to some excellent time management many extend that first stint Which put him on softer tyres for the sorry newer. i'm hearts for the second stint and then having been knocked out in key to he also had a spare set of saas for the restart so he's one of those classic things with you his weekend. Some of the disappointment familiar in the weekend actually helped trigger the fantastic on sunday. It definitely was a wholesome. Piji him as you said jazz with ouseley taking off that final spot now. He had a really strong this weekend as we saw yesterday. Qualifying usa three the free practices. He was able to just take bringing out with your call that he's just pre-pretty that despite what He had with red bull. He goes ameritrade. Obviously it was very difficult situation. The actually. he's an incredible drive and he's really earning him his spot in alpha tower and making himself for such a strong lead driver. Nineteen isn't he. It's a shame he didn't on red bull. But we've seen money was tar ross. So he had very strong performance says and now he's back at the team now it's alpha towery. We're seeing strong performances again so it just goes to show that when you've got the right environment the right call. Nfl comfortable you can pull really great performances. I'll and he did look stronger weekend. And i'm sure. John i gotta talk about this later when we go on our instagram but i did predict gazillion. Podiums day because back. He's one of those tracks. I've done both took dna. Remember get double points. Yeah right yeah do that with But i think this is one of those tracks where we can get. These party can have drivers that. Take every opportunity. That comes their way as long as they can. Show you real strengthen guiseley again just had elbows al. And i'm sure as john is gonna come onto a bit more detail in a sec. He was actually running with engine problems. Which is just like an incredible in its in itself so yeah another another stellar drive from gas. But you're what was going on with his engines day. Just turn on power so they were battling some some problems under the turn of the technical details of its team was telling him to change switches to try and get it down to a lack of straight-line speed so because we heard on the team radio During the right south of battle got past him in a deeply unhappy it wasn't wasn't fair wasn't correct or he couldn't believe it. I kind of what. The exact three dollars was seemed to have a strange comment to make an it made sense when you stand the he was upset about just the engine being down on power so i think having come through that having known the star he was exposed to cause behind him Predicted leclerc. whatever. Take him which he did but he planned it back in the slipstream and set some mega mega late late moves. I think he didn't wanna lose this leases opportunity podium. They didn't come the often informal one and you know he's had his first place at monza last year. it had a second place. Brazil a few years ago. Now he's got a third-place who every every position On the podium. Let me think is good. Because we've seen flashes of speed from the alfred story this season but there hasn't been a consistent weekend. They've been quick on fridays. Some weekends have been quick on fridays on saturday. And it's not come together on sunday but finally they've had a weekend to deliver. I think just probably made a little bit so by the facts that you know the battle problems and still finish third. So i think it's a good good booster for the racist to come definitely is and another brilliant shoving from. What did you make all yuki. Snow distracts eight Seven but what did he think of his foments. It's today better a weekend where you don't have the sensational headline grabbing moments over. The you know the the brilliant pastry so in bahrain. The terrible shunts that we saw in imola He's throwing things away so there's been a much calmer we can from him just more consistency which is probably why he needs An i wouldn't be surprised is is this kind of result. The alpha tory rebels fell after monica where it crushed in. Fb to that. It was time for reset. It wasn't working Hot hotheaded Things just weren't working weren't gelling as it should be so he was told to me to italy. So i've moves into athletes on this. This kind of shed. You'll of jim chest gym sessions and engineering meetings. And then he gets a certain time for lunch. An english lessons then more engineering meetings then back to the gym and after that says you've got to bed so i think he hasn't had hasn't had much fun with this regime but I think if if it helps them fast track. His progress helps deliver more results than the pain of the pain of bitter a boring life in italy for a few weeks or months will be worth in the end if he's can deliver the results in may be friends hostile..
