And you see a video of him lodging off. Oh yeah yeah ripping headphones off. Yeah my god. I love angry. Town had been the head to have seen the magic button toggle on like they like. They knew what had happened. They like somebody saw the display. What he just done. Remember the can't radio the guys you know at the start. You also can't do coaching anyway. So i'm not sure like yeah. Maybe they told him if there were a lap under his belt and he done that. I don't know if that if that falls under the coaching role but fast. Yeah they just had to watch as he definitely would have had time. It was on the shift so they would've would've had like the heartbeat to realize like. Oh shit he's gonna easy doesn't break he doesn't know it. He's got the magic. It's like something out of like kids sports movie. You know where you break it down into something really simple to understand so the complex. He's like oh no. The magic is on the magic's not meant to be awed the michael jordan secret sauce and space jam Kelly it's also the now this point horner and wealth are dislike reality stars Just like shaving each other Post race game but like race by race This time he had horner Talking about like. I think you know tono bashes his team in public too much. It's not god quietly. Strangle your drivers behind passive aggressively. Bury them relations finally getting a number two who by also kind of by accident because people were saying like rebel. The finally cracked a number two driver. It's like this. This happened to them. He became available like they made the not particularly difficult decision of getting one of the best veterans who is an underdog his entire career or over a kid who never never clicked where you what the rebel pressure cooker. Couldn't like you know. break him. Like an egg. Yeah yeah but at the same time. Like i i would say like there are circuit courses coming up. I'm sure like mercedes is eager to get to those but like panic time maybe rob mercedes have scored just seven points in the last two races. Their worst run since hamilton signed for them but who but just to finish off here. Nicholas latifi in sixteenth to address on seventeenth Max for stepping in eighteenth setting the fastest lap so he doesn't get a point for that but no one in the top. Ten does either And then lance stroll and esteban con Latifi also received a ten second. Stop go penalty for not pitting under the for staff and red out. Sad sad. sad sats asked. Yes team told him to stay out but and then immediately backtracked but by then it was too late but they were telling him to stay. They thought stay out as in as in the. Don't pass go through the pit lane but don't stop at the box right and he was like what the fuck is like. Yeah so that was converted to a thirty second time penalty but Yeah and that. That was baku. Baku wow what a fun. Time the last street circuit of the no. We've jetta because news news news. She begins do it. Singapore's out unfortunately although not all that surprising singapore grand prix for the second year in a row. Well not happen. This is of course due to the tightened restrictions over covid nineteen in singapore. It is a very densely populated area. The track is slapped buying in the middle the city so unsurprisingly. They weren't willing to risk probably a lot of people in close proximity in the middle of the city for that. So it is The i won't belabor as bush does bunch of quotes. They're basically just saying that but at the faa are looking to replace it with something. Sounds like we were all in agreement before this podcast. They replace it with baku here more back. Who just like run it like. it's it's. It's moving up the ladder of like racing venues. And i think this year. It's like the chaos element is too powerful. It's it's something the something there is like. There's like a. there's the ancient beast buried. Underneath the sewer grate came up. It takes dot com. The cosmic horror was unleashed. We just couldn't see it with our with our puny human is rob. Ross brian of formula one management also feels good about baku. Yes so he hit. He'd said like he's really hardened by the reaction to the race he said i've encouraged a number of commentators. Say we need another ten laps. The actually we saw in the final two laps of the azerbaijan grand prix. Because it acts as a prequel to sprint qualifying. It's been called. We'll be a little longer on seventeen twenty laps but it could well feature the same type of thrilling racing as the drivers won't have to worry about saving tires Yeah no i mean mind you a two laps sprint very different from even twenty laps but this notion of just drive the wheels off the thing does sound cool has l. We just need to make sure those we'll stay on the ad f- to weekend was very good but the spread races were definitely more entertaining than the the feature race. I think anyway. They were both super solid and they vary it up because some races where people are held for other because it doesn't matter i've got my position in the next one. It's it was. It was a lot of fun. You should check those add even if you don't wanna watch a full race the f. One youtube channel has highlights of all races. Go check him up and we get our first trial of the sprint races. Come july eighteenth in silverstone is right yes. That is the first one right frank. I one we have a lot of races in there. And then though it's it's we're one week often and it's tripleheader yeah.

"The claire doesn't concede and fights back with probably the most intense turn by turn battle this year and maybe for a while. it's awesome. Leclair gets him on the first part of the straight and because this straight is so long gasoline actually gets him back and seals it on the inside of turn one but then leclair swings back around. The outside tries it again unturned to intern for all. Meanwhile the leclair's also defending from norris who's looking for scraps. It's it's such a great back and forth and eventually though gas does keep the position. Terrific drive-by gosling. We saw this with monza against signs. He's got under pressure man he he keeps it together. He's been trialed many times now in these situations for podiums and otherwise and he has a head for it. He's good at defending was fair racing. Really good by the two of them. Yeah i guess. I'll just i'll cap it off here. In the end peres does keep it together up at the front and finishes in first place which is saying something because he was told right after the race to stop his car like dirt while he was over the radio. Great job jacob. You stop the car. Just just pull her son. Apparently there was a hydraulic problem. That could've turned catastrophic And that they were worried about rearing its head before the race head and he was. He was nursing at the last part of the rice. We can we say also the best wall celebrations since his win at the secure grand prix last year just three teams and three drivers who were pumped to be where they were a radio message. Where he he gets on the radio you he has he has he has he has the. I was so happy. Like reminded me like he is such an odd little nerd when it when it like. His personality was really great seeing him. Put together a really good race and Without putting a foot wrong It was it was cool seeing him back up there and it may be. He's coming to grips with that With that aston which was awesome. Ed and a monumental win for them as well right. That's the first podium for aston martin. That's true yeah Did you catch the massive than schumacher thing. I don't yes oh back turn to. Is it on that across the end of the race. Oh no really. I don't know you've seen the video cameras didn't pick it up. But i saw the stories about the fallout from it So they're racing to the line in the in the flat out part and into the background area schumacher's coming up fast behind maslin it as there As the road straightening out she walker has the to- He moves off to the right to execute. What should be a pretty easy. Overtake and maslin swerves over and tries to block him At full speed there's enough room for schumacher to put the car between Like maslin in the wall. It's not a full like block but it was bad it was a really dangerous and sudden lurch That was like the gone. Wrong is one of those. Things perfectly calibrated to launch one car over the top of another And schumacher you know. Lift him off as he goes by and then immediately is on the radio like what is he doing trying to kill us now. Haas said it was a misunderstanding. Mazza pin ran out of juice. He ran a battery on straight and then they just sort of say he got frustrated and upset. I didn't wanna lose lose the place and it's like yet clearly. Didn't want to lose the place but it's not a misunderstanding. That's a that's a fuck up and so once again like it's it is unfortunately it's just gonna be recurring unto until maslin can get his head right. It's going to be recurring theme. Where like he is miss. Ms playing his hand He is not distinguishing itself as much of a driver. But it's hard to assess when you're in haas but also when it comes to like the judgment calls racer has to make he makes bad ones He remains kind of a temperamental and thoughtless dude out there And that could have been real bad and your is making a bigger issue out of it But i wouldn't be surprised if that's basically the end of schumacher's form and so like maslin might just be one of those dudes who like he's scared because they can't get rid of and he bought his way in but like nobody has any to any any any time of day that guy. Yeah just a couple more race notes here alonzo head. A monster restart going from tenth to sixth in two laps. I will post a link to that in the show notes along with the The schumacher pin thing and formula. One is now apparently doing formula eestyle in car interviews of drivers as we're cool down laps They did it with sebastian federal and he was like a high. But how did you get my number. They're like congratulations. You're on driver. The day in his life yeah cool. It's a weird thing. I used to not like this interview format and i don't mean get crack the code yet because it's too new but it is so weird when you watch like endurance racing or indycar where they're just like chatting news before restarts for the race and like the guys are so used to it now It it does. It is a cool vibe. When i think if they ever get there it'll it'll be a good interview format. Don't call yuki sonoda got. He's dump button ready. Not doing it alone shop. I love it..

John mara half. Let's say thank you for joining this month. Well yes let's. Let's jump right in to baku fellas because there's a lot to get to here buck. You started biting hard and qualifying. Oh turn fifteen took out. Stroll and juvenile z in q one both causing red flags the red flag for stroll actually enabled wrestles mechanics finished repairing his car. After a problem that he had yeah which was pretty cool. The monkey paul work in there right. The red flag for giovanni though led to a three place grid penalty for norris because he didn't enter the pits when the red flag was one of those. Like when you're rolling up to a traffic light and the light turns yellow right at the wrong time. Like should i got it. Should i slam on the brakes. It was one of those situations chose to not enter. The piss even asked his team like. But here's the thing right not happens in in your heart of hearts you know whether or not you're meant to slow down or an and norris i think caught. I think he was like you know what. I'm going to finish this because just in case i want to get a time in a but i'll ask my pit lay if it's the right time and then you know my reply where people are like. Oh it was a real. It was real judgment call is real close there on. It's like that he could have dumped all the speed and safely entered the pets. Oh it's a tough entry. It's like it's not that tough. Like i could have done that and so weird labs. I wonder if like was he distracted. He didn't fully know exactly where he was on the straight and he thought he was closer but like if you look on re look at it on replay. It's like it's a clear mistake and there's no it's kind of baffling as to why he would be asking is up at lynn. Unless he's trying to get lab. Yeah so normally. It is apparently a five place grid penalty for this. But i guess the stewards were a little lenient because they only gave him three place penalty. Sort of a half a half measure. A talking weird. Yeah yeah he also got some penalty points on his licence bringing him. I think he has. The most does ace. Yeah eight hundred. Eighteen is a. I think i was. Twelve okay yeah you get. You accrue twelve points in a twelve month calendar year and you have to sit out a race so i wonder what his last one was because of course it's not by season it's why colin. So yeah. I don't know when those are going to drop off in the back near but acute so that was all in key one. It turned fifteen turn four took out two more cars ricardo in q two and soon oda in q. Three signs also had to bail off on an escape road to avoid sunanda on the last one and that that crash also meant that nobody got to do a second run in q. Three so everybody went out once and that was kind of your lap. Meaning charlotte clare gets his second pole position in a row crazy lewis hamilton qualified right next to him in second place. Then we've got max verstappen third pierre ghastly in fourth and fifth sergio perez and six. Yuki sonoda doing well to get it in seventh fernando alonzo in eighth landau norris ninth again after his three place grid penalty and then voucher botas in tenth behind them. Sorry go ahead. We should mention the series. Like qualifying is a little bit deceptive there because like he like because of the truncated q three He never really.

"All the dots are getting connected. It's incredible all the dots and he was on the incredible staff. So it could upset peres. Well earned victory. Whoever you wear under the helmet and pears got the trophy. I guess this is going to be a great guests. Who died this everyone area. No one does not real not real god site people. Let's let's lewis hamilton. Because i guess too is looking at these rice right to tell you that Vistaprint was very lucky. I know we decided that because he crashed out because he's tie blew up buddy goes lucky because he didn't lose granted the championship hamilton. Could it be as much as Twenty points up or something like that. All was mercedes very lucky because after friday practice and even qualifying if you bought as or hamilton not getting for belt bought as there were absolutely no way there was a lot of. They could've finished well down the order or just obstacle points at all as they didn't and staff and also could have one red bull could have had the first one to in two thousand sixteen. So the weird situation where we neutralized kind of interesting. I guess that's what it is but this mistake. Hamilton made. Although can you even say it's a mistake. Likely i mean it was because he accidentally pressed the wrong button and who amongst us hasn't pressed the wrong button and you could tell us a mistake because lewis hamilton was just always messaging and when he discovered a off the press that button. It's not like he owns He's actually gone This stuffed up but the thing for may and of course it is. He's absolutely right. I mean he'd pressed the button but what like win. Is that ever happened. What how did he do it. That's why i want someone to do like a three of like an air crash investigations edition of hamilton instead of chinese new station. That always does really low rate reconstructions. Major tragic effects like three seventy in other massacres always have the rights to the royal claymation of olympics events. Tv what causes the dynamic loss on. Riots i think i think that's going to be asked future train the rice with but this is like okay. The jury this patent thing. How do you even do it. I watch the reply and you can go and say it on like. He's hands adjusts doing the regular. Like you know paddles as you would in your regular and then all of a sudden probably saw i've got too much going on inside the car which which is which is understandable unforgivable. But what. I the thing that tickled my fancy device was when Team radio and they cut to that shot of lewis in the cockpit and they had the team radio and said all all the magic but an anthony davidson new. Everyone just wait. You know what he did. I tell you it's absolutely right wasn't magic. He probably developed been probably. He's and he's sitting. Make exactly contel from net conflicted credible trade. You get that kind of coverage on sky. Sports such Up-to-date topical and also anthony davidson appeared dot com. All of a sudden like pulled arrested. It's almost like lost his accent and then suddenly it was anti wasn't prepared for but it's magic button wanna terrible for somebody that would ruin. The rice made essentially turned off his rear brakes. What happened and that's not gonna work out for you. But i it's hard to know who was the biggest loser out of this because we know of in parrots streak speaking strictly the championship contenders. Or do we just forget. Azerbaijan ever happened. And pretend that the knicks rice's ran seeks. Ni- it's it's it's going to be a tough laden very tough lady and it's like watching the x factor in justin bieber's and then you got old by these trying to do a cadillac and it's just a bit underwhelming. You need that buffer zone in between issue rice in the middle. We just need to go back to monaco again. All now the french grump phrase nick's story but the biggest is by far parental. Because the good points of. I think on a couple of times to that fairly such a shit job to as in they come into the sport. Everyone whinges you know. They say the tires have to do this in that and then they actually do a tie. That doesn't ever complain to the writings boring. So you never poorly the government. They get priced. What is just always attract the art criticism and mad conspiracy theories and really very much going via. Why do we review we doing this. Because every time something catastrophic happens the microscope they hate really turns up on them and yeah. It's the biggest louisa straight three west on grand prix with. I lock it on whether it was even their fault was just by myself. And i mean it's it's they paying for these pirelli pay to do this. And why would you because everyone complains. I don't know when i saw them both blow up because it was strolling tire failed in almost the same part of the track. It was easy to think that it was a fight. Like a proper filing tie like indianapolis style failure not quite but pirelli so to it off to a good college that that's not even the loaded taya which doesn't make any sense. I don't know maybe. I think there's a lot of quite aggressive reaction and from the verstappen's in particular and you never want us to react badly because that's police need to be involved if that's the case but I i sometimes. I think they've got to be caught a little bit slack. I guess mary we slow. He doesn't eat ice just an ambulance driver on heck with like the the the everyone all the tire. All the inventory epidemiology work and everything else wants would pay people Experts on that and one ties because they were very quick to blame purely before the rice david finished grunted those about a forty minute. Gap conducted laps basically but people very quick to blind poorly without knowing the full story and of course people point of just like well. It's the tame. It's the due diligence of the teams. That i how the law expanded they taught and if they do such a aggressive pitstops they they they know it comes with the territory on the cake. Frankly i've just realized something. Did you say during the week not to bring up. Veltri has again who doesn't deserve much more of a mention shocking rise. He said during the week that he's desktop background is what toda wolf called enemy building. He saw some like. He's going to know what these even say refused side that it's something that like he'll turn on his computer. It'll be the desktop back. I know fire him out like get angry. And nazis motivation. Maybe because he he's was crapping all the ties this weekend. Maybe it's just. Mario is in the background. Think and that's he's yeah he's just it's all the other thing maybe he's excited on this. Maybe you should change it to something more soothing. We need credit. Twitter can't cold Report has google searches He's obviously going to images. Try to find stimulating wallpaper..

"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..

"Quite tag onto the back of peres and by do wonder if maybe there's some strange quirk with these tires or the way. The car is because when they did the last time in portugal when lewis went lower downforce inventory in theory that should have punished the ties. More vouchers tars. That went off more so wonder if there's some strange quirk difference driving style or different understanding. That is shifting so we need to do a deep dive into the differences that these these wing settings made to tires. We find it quite hard to kind of appreciate and comprehend just how tricky it is to have the pace when the tires aren't switched on. If you've been carting and you go out with a really cold In the pits. I first lap of the day. And you turn into turn the first corner. Just go straight on with with nothing and then a few laps later you can feel the grip and is all changed but these guys are operating a different level. I saw on board the the restock From vouchers car and he just falls fall in fervor server back just hasn't switched ties on. There's no pacers got no traction and everyone was just driving around him. He's not necessarily still but you can just see he's got no no pace and once you start getting swallowed up by the pac one call comes pass and the everyone sees the opportunity and you just lost that momentum and kind of snowballs out of control say some big big questions. I think for valtrex perspective. You know it's not looking too hot for next year if you're trying to deliver performances to convince the team to keep you And you can't finish in the points on a day. Your team might could have won the race. That's not what they need. Because we know from red bulls perspective. They signed check because you cannot champion one one guy at the front one going not scoring points or not featuring at the front so you know maybe i'll reset. Maybe we'll get back to normal tracks. Like paul ricard and austria and silverstein felt you'll get up there and we hire is higher. Energy comes back. it'll be a different thing. So maybe we just had just had a blip and maybe monaco showed that there are tons. Valerie can be comfortable in. Tons of lewis isn't comfortable and it switches around but it's also typical vouchers luck that he has the thirty six hour tire change on the weekend when he's battling for podium not when he's struggling to finish in the points it makes it say much more painful i guess to witness because he should be out there battling. It was a race where we will report having by federal Back and as we know. When max on lewis have days where they fall off. That is the point where the drivers can capitalize brady bag. The coins on the fact that matthew was absolutely nowhere. To be seen is pretty shocking. And i mean if you're mercedes at this point you now behind twenty six points from red bull snot. Something that you're gonna wanna have if you were them right now. You've just said to john looking at next year. It's not looking too great. Do you think that this is a point where they're going to be getting a bit worried and a bit concerned about second seat and they can actually be considering other options or do you think that you know they'll give it more time it's just a blip or do you think actually now things are really heating up and they're gonna have to really reconsider worry now is actually world championship spiked to tonight on him so down and depressed and angry and upset about where things are going. He said mercedes form in. Las t races was unacceptable. You not quick enough too. Many mistakes Operation you're strong enough not produce in the form they need to haven't been on their game said it needs to niece change needs to turn around frenchtown pre says the work starts. He says as soon as this medicals finished the work starts in addressing. Our problems Last thing i mean the battery issue isn't something that is anywhere near the top of the list. They need to get this car back on the pace. They need to stop making stop throwing any opportunities away. Lewis hit song button. Be slow pitstops Not switching tires on having poor practice sessions. I think that is their priority. Right now. the driver can wait till summer. But i think it'll be more and more concern issue for veltri than it will be team right now. Because they've got much bigger issues to issue to stress about yeah. I think that that's going to be some very difficult in conversations. Going on at mercedes to these lost two races because they really were not on the phone that we used to seeing them on. They did such a good job yesterday. They getting lewis on that when it looked like it was so safe. Aw off the pace And they managed to do all the simulations back broccoli and brixworth. They brought us it. They got hamilton. to p to. Obviously the magic button mistake is a bit of a freak occurrence. It's not anything down to not having the pace. Not being up there it was it was misfortune but having both us back them meant When these freak occurrences do happen. He wasn't there to bring higher something. You know something to keep the points coming in because when the pack is quite as this season vouch we could get away with certain misfortunes and things last season and the seasons before because mercedes which is so dominant that not this season. So it really shows you up when you're having these struggles and you're having these nichols on you're not able to keep bringing it and you're able to keep finding the answers when you've got charles leclerc you've got here guys liv got to and you've got caparros like you've got all these drivers are hungry for the for the things that kind of came very easily because you're a more dominant car. So as john said like they need veltri up that they need him at the very least scoring some points. After what is as john said a hugely disappointing. We can for the team And if you're not you're not there then. It makes the whole thing so much more stressful so obviously the season has been such a mixed bag for him. There have been misfortunes. And there have been instances where it's like will boycott ye fund the pace when he's teammate is lewis hamilton right e to have to give him that his teammate is.

"It could have been more catastrophic than we saw even today Obviously barth drivers walked away. Spit shaken and obviously max in extremely upset. But i think that that is a bit of a concern for everyone involves not only just kind of what do we do with the but why was that. Why was that a warning. Thank goodness the neither lost. Nor max y injured because they were big accents Have been much wa but it was gutting end to the races. Of course especially for max was leading the race and now leases the race win under points that come along with now. The points lost may be slightly less painful given that lewis has scored any either but it still really tough nonetheless. I mean obviously the racist they still wanna get winds onto that outside. We saw how a noise he was initially happened and he got out. He kicked the retire. It's gonna be a difficult to sort of pick yourself back up after losing was radio fo- but that's what he's gonna have to do. Isn't it jess. He will be probably a bit more buoyant. Considering where lewis finished the championship is kind of intact. There's not going to be one of those kind of Lewis hamilton malaysia. Twenty sixteen scenarios where one dna is going to kind of make or break championships. So in that in that sense he's he's lucky so i'm sure they're gonna choke it down to a a nail nail you know. It's like nobody. Nobody's conceded in this scenario so in that sense championships alive from show is going to come out as a strong as ever would decoding into france but the the the pain will be that. Obviously it's great. That checker has the wind for red bull because for the constructors at least you've got maximum points from the scenario and you've got mercedes completely out of the points which which not side where all the money comes from his brilliant for at bow But you know he's he. Max isn't like today's the drive is like to lose. And i think it's kind of going to be a bit sore painful tonight. Probably literally as well 'cause that was quite some some smack into the wool that he received. But i think it he'll come out just to see everwood in teddy the other races so i don't think he's going to this isn't gonna knock him back. I the fact that louis didn't score probably probably eases the pain an awful lot. I think if louis had gone on to win the race. And max had lost those points that i think you would feel so filled a super unlucky that you'd seen imola when you on the way to win. Lewis crashed out the race and then had the good fortune of the red flag in the the restart allowed into come through and get eighteen points in theory he. He wouldn't have got enormous circumstances. Then of seeing a swing like that today would have a tremendous amount. So i don't think max would have been too upset. Lewis create an escape broader term. One i was just thinking. Can you imagine this be in the world champ. Finale that we'd come in here with max. Just leading lewis and then it all mexican championship. Then he's out then it's all in lewis hands to win the championship And then he makes that mistake would have been the. It would have gone down as a party. What he got. More than seven point five race because it would have gone down as one of the greatest by two shutdowns since cruiserweight so so relative john at your school. The final the final race the season the schools can run up out ten points for the last rites the season it definitely would have stung a lot. More had lewis scored then on the other side of things for lewis. I imagine the the outcome today was a tough pill to swallow for him because he was on the brink of actually securing p. One hatay been able to make move on perez and he'd had such a difficult weekend with that mercedes but he's come out since and said that the issue is actually to do with the break magic. John can you talk us through exactly is how it came into play today. What what was gonna yes mercedes. Have this thing called the magic button. Which amazing just talking about last night on our instagram thing about mercedes needing this magic button though. I didn't think we quite predicted it would play such a significant role. So what is used for is used to beatty switches the break balance all the way forwards so the drivers use it on the formation lap can then push the brakes on the brakes get warmed up and ready for the race start and also in the brakes being hot but he radiates into tires. You get nice nice. Warmed up front tires which is really important. Forgetting that biden grip in term on the drivers us on the formation lap bright bandsaw forwards than you Kind of disconnected all. I'm not sure if it's actual switch that you switched off or is just a but any press but and then release but in disconnected all switch off. Whichever whichever way round you do it. And then that puts the right balance back to normal distribution too in the front and the rear. And then you offer the race. So what appears is that Somewhere between disconnecting it and lewis hitting the brakes for term one. He accidentally reengaged it so all the balance was towards the front and as seen as he hit the hit. The brakes oversee the all the breaking force that car shifts to the front The fronts locked up and his often escape rd so a rare era basically having lewis is a bit shocked when he came on the team radio and said did i leave the magic button connected. Because i thought i disconnected it. So it's quite It's not very often lewis. Hamilton makes a mistake. That costs an awful of points in a race is really really rare thing to do and also what's even more amazing is that we heard on the team. Radio louis came on the team radio and said this is a marathon not sprint We need to think bigger picture instantly that moments earlier chat room. That's open during the during the window. We see things from lewis out my ties a finished. I can't keep going and then the five consecutive fastest laps so we thought this is guaranteed that when lewis says america sprint. He's going to be a flat out tacky into term on and that's what happened. I wouldn't say actually move onto bossass because even if things ended badly for lewis he did actually manage to make some really strong progress today on yesterday qualifying considering how much they were struggling with the mercedes he got his car up on up until the era he was a brilliant position Actually competing for win but batas hadn't utterly miserable day. Today he started piton. She finished peach. Wow i mean what is that to even say about how his day when i always feel slightly cautious whenever anybody wants to talk to me about us and i don't really know what there is to say it's just he. He didn't make the moves when he needed to he. We saw last time. I monaco lewis. Hamilton was struck laying at this time. This weekend has been bought us his turn to struggle about monica much harder time of making up ground around baku as we seem with a lot of the other drivers including the rice winner. You can make up places but it just seemed that you know he got stuck was it behind was at brighton. They up behind. Yeah he was. He stuck behind him. It was a non event him. And especially when max are lewis a bite out of the points. He didn't bring any points home either. So i mean as far as i'm concerned unless something really crazy happens meeting fluid. He's completely out of the championship. Fights is going to be really really tough for him to pull this back. I don't really have too much to say. I'm sure jones got a ten will to addle. Da because it was pretty much. I mean it was weird. How off the pace. He was Some deep diving. That mercedes to understand what happens in theory because lewis and value around different wings settings lewis much lower downfalls which meant struggling for pace in the middle sectors which then we saw in the race because the red bulls would nailing those middlesex's and lewis couldn't quite tag onto the back of peres and by do wonder if maybe there's some strange quirk with these tires or the way..

His rice came to an end. This for our red flag with three laps remaining when the race restarted it was astounding stall on lap fifty with peres and hamilton on the front ri- how much and made the back to get away but experienced brake issues. That saw him going. Straight off into the runoff. Ira on otani late. He came home. P. fifteen three paces behind teammate. Victory bought us. Who had a hugely disappointing day. I'm really was nowhere to be seen. But the widow of the day. Sergio perez claiming a well-deserved victory sebastian Driver of the day providing a reason to celebrate it aston martin on ouseley continuing his strong weekend to buy another podium lander norris months she come home p five ahead of financial alonzo and he keeps onoda call. Us is across the line in p eight with daniel On kimera can competing the top ten. Even when i'm recapping it now. I still comedy believe how it unfolded now before we get troppo. Jim think fast we need to discuss the tires because they ties really triggered so much. Today's madness we saw the left. Raise of launch stroke on maxwell sapin failing causing big accidents. That could have been awash. Actually now of course ties are going to be taken away analyzed. They would time whether it's a structural issue caused by debris or some other issue. But john from what we've seen in hard and no so far. What is your take on it. The fact that they found a cut on live wanna lewis. Hamilton's tires in that red flag period tends to suggest an. I think a lot of it points to to to them being Actually been failures caused by brianna maxwell stepping told dutch media after the race that we'll have a conversation with pirelli and they'll say blaming as debry yet again like it was emily last year when he went off There's not much you can do. I've just noticed just now that we've just done a story probably has come out tonight and said it looks like debris and max tappin has just responded to our story twitter tweets and just said they always say that so There's two issues as take cumby. Legitimate deborah an instance and is a street circuit Things blow onto the blow onto track being picked up earlier in the race with the launched. Roll incident there was a tree branch on the track at one point which triggered the move between kind of delayed charles little bit which allowed louis take onto his back so these things can happen but equally the tires were changed this year. There's a big move by predator to change the tires because being under say much force that when there was debry debris does occur on racetrax. They shouldn't have these failures in these exact reasons why the ties will change during the facts that we've had to failures potentially more does raise question marks about you know make did did poorly make a mistake bringing soft tissue. They're put more durable. Rubber are still question marks over the before his. Aw should have been higher here So still thing. There's still a lot of uncertainty even if even if rarely come here and conclusively say these Failure caused by deputy. We believe it was of a carbon fiber or curb will something about the needs to be a bit more kind of response and understanding from this definitely but on the other side of things party Shoe to debris but if it was determined to be a structural issue in ties in the compounds what would the next steps then be to ensure that we wouldn't have repeats of what we've seen today. What would her any then that have today. What normally would happen ivy. It raised the a tire. Pressures because teams You know when you if you Have a If you bicycle or something and you pump your toes right bike you're pushing up to one. Twenty psi and stuff is just phenomenal. And in a row you'll be about thirty five psi an f. Ones you know well down in the twenties the Really really precious. Because that allows the maximum grip says always battle between the teams one of the precious to lowest possible which obviously puts on the huge structural problems. Because they're moving around much and probably wanting to push precious up so in the short term could result in more multi pressure being put in there by pirelli or you change the choice of compounds or You get to a situation. Where a parolee can impose a maximum stint link. I think so if they if probably felt for example in a is always a really really big punisher on the tires that if there were concerns that this could manifest itself impromptu silverstein. The nikkei a think i'd have to double check the regulations imprint t shore There is there is allowance that means they can limit a maximum stint link. And i think one of the biggest worries for both well everybody involved the teams the faa and pirelli was that the team's got no warning from the telemetry. That was going to be a tie failure. And that's obviously a massive massive concern for everyone involved because they do have huge amounts of telemetry on the ties. Normally they would get some kind of warning that something was going to happen and they didn't so i think you know they're going to be looking They're going to be looking into that as well. Because thoughts thus terrifying especially where both tires failed it was incredibly scary. The highest speed part of the entire circuit You've got concrete walls either side. It could have been more catastrophic than we saw even today Obviously barth drivers walked away. Spit shaken and obviously max.

"From otis for dot com and otis magazine. I'm arianna on this is that what is forecast. Wows why do we even start back you. It certainly delivered today with the race. Full of drama and fought break and ending with a very unexpected podium. Sergio perez claimed his fast red bull victory funded by sebastian battle with his first aston martin radium. Pa taking p. Three on a day when neither of the championship contenders scored any points. We saw two big accidents today causing end to racist of launched row and max western both incidents strikingly similar as they suffered from left. Rear tire failures giving rise to questions about those parental tires. The race ended up being incredibly manic. And i think it's safe to say that none of us could have predicted how today played out. And i'm joined by jonathan noble might spoil dot com f. one editor and jess mcfadden director of district strachey for export network. Thank you for joining may. Now before we get into the race recap. Let's kick straight off with your ratings jess. Yeah it's always. It's always hard to go straight into a rating the race like best because the so much unpack and where we get insane. Events happening then. Don't want to just go based on the sensationalism of big crashes and things. You wanna go a little bit more and go. Actually how good. This was this race as a race and those a lot of talk right at the beginning of the fact that when hamilton's got the lead over leclerc that it was going to be really boring and kind of like a management set procession to the to the line but us no week goal so there was a lot going on and see we did have the instance that we had a much. I think i'm going to give it an eight point. Five ten k. I think it was. I think it was. I think it was good. But i think without without the taya complications it could have been a little bit more of a straightforward rice even though themes the first initial pitstops were interesting and we had lots of things going on and it kind of it was starting to settle until we had launched stroz blow out and all it all changed totally changed. But i guess that's the nature of back like we know this stuff can happen backer but until that point it was kind of going into a bit below for me and then it it kicked off so i wanted to kind of like could come out and just ten because i'm still living on a high right now of everything that's happened but i think having gone away and had think about it i'm going to give it a solid eight point five not still strong gusts very strong john a you on the same wavelength of the difficulty of giving ratings like this. Is you have a sensation race. Then the next race is better than if you give one more point. Then you end up giving five races down the road you have to give thirteen points out of ten for some. So you quite gas. And i'd love to have to give thirty now. Tend to some races. Quite carefully awarding high points. I think we've out the without the verstappen tire. Blowout and without the louis instant would have been a much less spectacular race Body was it was good quite rarely. Do you get an opening phase to race where No one's able to break away basically the unpredictability of the undercover the over the strongest. And then obviously the red flag drama fat So good but there were equally a phase where it looks like it's going to be a straightforward ripple one two with louis third vet'll forfeit ghastly fifth. So it wasn't. It wasn't building up took a chandelier. We had in bahrain for example where the race was coming alive and really uncertain could go either way and if you re run it you wouldn't be sure what would happen side I've not sure if eight point five but it's more than more than a seven do important. Five's we'll do. I feel like you should be allowed. Maybe i'll give it seven point five just because if if it'd been a class of battle potentially between the leaders say peres max louis. They were fighting more for the win down. Think you'd elevator into the layer of eights. So i'm going seven point five. I am quite easy. Pleased if they even raise his monaco. I quite enjoyed so lost. People activated it so my my bar is quite quite low. Can you bought your bars quite and yet you're gonna give seven point four the low-powered i'm quite heart of master. Say about you arianna. Did you give it right. So i'm i'm going to go in the middle of uta. I'm gonna say an eight. Because i agree. I think the the drama of it definitely elevated it and allowed the race to unravel away. It did but had not been for those fake instance. I think we wouldn't have actually seen much more as you guys have said so. I'm going to go in the middle for eight. I think it was super exciting. Really really exciting. And i cannot predict it on wrapping like that. Atl which i know from a race. And i love back. Yeah definitely a little bit by staff but for anyone who may have missed the race all might just want to relive the How exactly did it go down. While off the line charlotte i held onto the lead but on lap three to pass the ferrari to take the lead and before long bike ride bose also made their way to the class who dropped back to fourth. Hamilton was the fastest three to pit on lap. Thirteen how briefly as gazi was let past.

"Have you seen the youtube video on the f. One channel where they got all the drivers to try name and f one team from every letter of the alphabet is very good and they score them so you they have a winner at the they do a driver standing of of who who is the most knowledgeable nice to show notes. Who do you think someone's knowledgeable. It rob kinda. Oh that'll i know very well a very surprising laps. That's all i know about this. Dust own really from yes he did he did also he kept like he kept going for very obscure team because at the end of show you like who were all the l. teams and the ones that were picked though in the ones that were not you know some some weird team from the sixties only did two races or whatever but he kept picking very obscure ones which is very obscure. But yeah i mean louis freeh said mclaren instead of it's good. I am not doing well. I'm doing it in my head. And i'm like i don't eat very difficult. Yeah yeah what's the what's the most obscure team you can name. Oh my god like els leon. Wasn't that one. yeah le- shea biker. Yes forget speicher was totally. Forget that there's biker team yeah all right. Well i'll post that in show notes. That'll be fun to watch it. Speaking of teams. If you wanna create your fantasy team of drivers and put it in with us you can do. So there's a link to join our fantasy league in the show notes. You would take some emails at this point. Let's do it shifts the phone as the team dot com or dot com slash emails. I'll read the first one is from noah. Hey guys as. I've been watching the races this year. I've come to realize that ricardo almost definitely isn't going to be a world champion. Something i thought he go to for the longest time. Do you have a list of other drivers. You think had the talent to do it if it weren't for some other team or driver being extremely dominant during their career. At first of all. How did you feel about ricardo as the world shopping. Good point when he entered the sport he had that sort of mark webber feel he was from down under he was told he had a straw jaw line shoulders. Exactly does he fit in the car full of full of possibilities but just has nas found the right combination of car or has struggled with i guess. Jumping from the leap adds a little padlock over the past few years too. So what do we think about. Ricardo was the world champion. This is such a weird question because not everyone of course is is operating on the same footing right like you. In a lot of ways. Your destiny is determined with who you sign up with. Not even just informed me one but like formula two at this point formula. Three like i remember Jamie chadwick W series champion saying guy going to formula three because you get a decent cash prize for winning the w series and he didn't want to cast her lot with formula three team. That wasn't very good because that kind of it's like setting your salary right like you you you get bumped up based on what that salary was instead of like. Well no. I'm going to hold out for higher so that i start at a better spot because if you started a bad formula three team you don't look very good so if you get to formula to you don't get into one of the top teams there so interesting. I think that can just kind of cascades so yeah. I think a lot of the drivers here have championship potential if they were in the right cars right like the actual physical. The people in those cars could probably do a lot Maybe you know looking at voucher. botas lewis hamilton Kinda undercuts argument a little bit. But i think ricardo if the cards had been if he'd played his cards right. We could be talking about that but but for all the other drivers in the way right. No it's a good question. I would have loved to have seen more ricardo versus verstappen. Right and i mean alexander. Rossi was in terrible backmarker team manner and then left f one and then went and won the indy. Five hundred. you know so. It's not like the guys in the back of the field have zero talent. I'm rambling this point. We're going to say no. I think i think that analysis mentally sound like there's so many things have to go your way that somebody like. It's such a stratified field. I will say. Ricardo showed a lot of early promise. But part of that was showing up kicking battles ass and at the like. In retrospect well there were major holes in that'll like armor We hadn't fully seen. And then what's your car on the scene. They started get exposed at the time. The narrative was man ricardo's just the new. Sheriff look at this bad ass taking on the four time world champion or whatever it was and now with the benefit of hindsight. It's like well that all any more competitive situation has not like covered himself in glory So some of the some of the early buzz on ricardo has to be taken with a grain of salt. I didn't follows pre f one career at also. I can't speak to it. But if he really wanted to champion like the thing to do was he would've needed to fend off max. And he didn't like he was pretty us being pretty thoroughly beaten by max and it wasn't totally lopsided but it was going that way and when chris and i felt like dan daniels running from a fight i met was a bit unfair but i think there was a degree of truth to it as well. Ricardo's positions always. I wasn't getting a fair shake at red ball. I can certainly see that the result there are a lot of things going. Max is way but if he could have shut max down he would've he didn't. And from there yeah. It's the sort of thing that i'm curious is how it's gonna cloud for him because yeah we'll tell you was not doing favors is going from like driving a really into like podiums and starting to make it look like. You're being part of a real turnaround that program and just like driving like in a mclaren that has been shown have considerably more pace so some this is is lock and he is making choices that have had that have been proven to be maybe unlucky and then the second part of the question. I mean i think that there are obvious sort of standards here with the driver who never one of my guy. Philippe him funny by massa. I mean he was so close as well wasn't it was literally the final turn of interlagos actually rubens. I've always thought like is the number one odom. My my teammate is like as much as we look at brought us. in hamilton. rubens was second in the championship. All those years and mark he was never given a fair shot. They put like they stabbed rubens in the back so many times that like they never let it be a situation where ruben could have proven that he could move beyond michael and boy. There's a lot of drivers up and down the grid when they talk about like michael is that he's bastard as a teammate and like works in the gray but is he that good driver and very few people argue that put. He's that good. But that's on your right. Like i in that respect like when you see that is borne out of those situations like the whole you know civil war of rosberg and hamilton being able to fight it. Add like that's off did not happen at ferrari during that era you didn't you didn't have those types of fights rubens was was often used as a you know.

Yeah i was. I was looking forward to doing a podcast. I couldn't family business to attend to the. Yeah i i think it's a it's a mixed bag. I think i cost. Some of the podcasts was editing. It and i agree with these sort of the grow. One i really liked. I think that was a really good example of like yes. They stretched us like. I think this is where people understood. What documentary filmmaking. It has or something like the internet was like but he was out of the car and like twenty seconds. It's like well. If you're watching the live broadcast he was not at at the car and twenty seconds. If you're watching live broadcast you sash. Stewing for a bash. As long as you sit doing in the movie and they do a really good job of like fill that space and sort of showing the perspective of the people in the pit wall and giving it the dramatic levity it deserves. I think the sound mix. I'm not entire section is incredible because they have like bob izzy pulls out different cameras so when the crash happens. You hear like people reacting which there wouldn't have been but also you hear like the chopper rozier noise on that which i'm not sure if they bother recording that there's lots of interesting. I am creative choices. I thought were cool. And yeah but but those last four episodes are a strong couple of week ones and also like the. Oh no this five minutes in this series you better talk about racism. Lewis here for a second was was like like yeah almost worse than not even covering us. It was just the sort of you know week attempts putting it in there. But yeah all in all i think the series is really good considering what they work with I think that it a good job of i production hurdles you can see where they had to sort of tie to individual people and the mclaren episode is. The one is stupid like the the creating friction between signs. Nour's who's just like so such a reach. That's that's where they lost me but it was good. It was good series. I clearly a lot of people who listen to. This is still on the emails. I get emails from people. Saying the i live is just watched drive to survive. And i'm getting into f one so it's clearly doing its job. You know yeah. Speaking of sound I believe it just won a bafta for sound or not surprise. The sandwich and the show is tremendous yet although i i don't know if you guys find this but i have to turn subtitles on. Not because of the accents because the dialogue often gets lost in rice the sound effects canisius. Yes same deal yeah. I don't know if it's just my mix or what do you guys find. That is didn't have. I didn't have trouble with this. No i did tennis bush for me. It's the accents getting a little bit lost in the mix like i think the mix is just aggressive enough that like some of the has become a little bit hard to parse Even though i can parse them just fine like enron interview. it's like totally but like catching them in the in the mix with the music and the and the sound effects can be a bit much cool. Well yeah if you wanna get the full breakdown in the last four episodes rob flapping our jaws about him. You can do that over. Patriot dot com one..

Mutual-appreciation anxiety: Putin and Erdogan

"At a rally yesterday the prime minister of armenia nicole passion. Yon warned of an attempted military coup. He told crowds. It was the army's job to defend the country. It was up to the people to decide whether or not he should step down. Y'all guy even hats manhattan borough. She mr young has faced protests since a peace deal struck in november. In which is our by. John gained territory in nagorno-karabakh a largely ethnic armenian enclave. Mr john has protests since a peace deal was struck in november in which is by john games territory in nagorno-karabakh a largely ethnic armenian enclave clashes over the region had erupted repeatedly since nineteen ninety-four drawing in russia which stood behind armenia and turkey which back oscar by john but in the end it was russian president vladimir putin and his turkish counterpart rany tight air to one who put it all to rest. Brokering a peace deal. That's just one sign of remarkable political alliance. It's picking away at the post cold war geopolitical order so i think it helps to go back to the really low point of relationship which was in two thousand fifteen. Daniel franklin is our diplomatic editor. Turkey shot down a russian warplane which had been flying over syria. Entered it's ass base and this happened. After repeated warnings to the russian pilot in the warnings became increasing urgent they were ignored and turkish f sixteen fighters that were patrolling shot. The plane down remember turkey is a nato member and had engaged with russia militarily. That's not something that happens. Often and russia responded quite vigorously by imposing sanctions on turkish products and a bombed ethnic tuchman fighters in northern syria that allies of the turks so that was Towards the end of two thousand fifteen and into the beginning of two thousand sixteen but it was a dramatic shift. If you remember in the summer of two thousand sixteen there was an attempted coup jet sopa head. The world watched in shock as a military coup and in turkey eight. Us ally a major strategic partner in the fight against isis putin was quick to call president of and commiserate show solidarity is some suspicion in turkey. Anyway that gave some advance warning to add one that his life was in danger helped move him out of the area where he might have been bombed and from that point onwards things have changed dramatically in the two men developed this kind of own tone this brotherhood of hard power. And what is it. That had changed between the downing of the bomber and this evan beginning of a friendship they first of all recognize in one another leaders who know how to use power in a full full way but there are other similarities between them in terms of that authoritarian style of leadership at home. And there's a common set of grievances against the west in turkey's case decades of not being properly accepted wanting at one stage to join the european union but being put on hold. And i think one of the reasons why the attempted coup was such a turning point for adwan is that he came under attack from his own planes and he felt that nato had improperly come to support nato countries were slow to express solidarity so he started to think that maybe putin was someone could depend upon for his own survival where he couldn't necessarily depend on nato partners and how the relationship between these two men evolved since then it's developed in some very concrete ways add one has bought from russia s four hundred air defense system. So it's a nato country. Remember that is buying russian. Ed defense system that does not delighted his nato partners. It's meant that it's been kicked out of the f thirty five fighter jet program that Nato has its face sanctions from america and despite all that it's gone ahead and on the ground in particularly serious led to kind of accommodation even though they're on opposite sides they've managed to accommodate each other's objectives in particular turkey vis-a-vis the kurds and most recently they've accommodate each other in the south caucasus. Where again they support opposite sides. The russia has played its role as a mediator. Turkey supported azerbaijan. And they've managed to end up with a result that suits them both well. Russia has peacekeeping troops on the ground. Turkey has an economic opportunity and the air that causes missed out has got nothing out of this is the west. You mentioned the word accommodating in the sense that that perhaps they're just essentially keeping out from under each other's feet or is there more to it than that. There is more to it than that because a particularly developed closer ties economically. The two economies have been struggling so they can do all the support they can get and although russia has a big surplus with turkey. Turkish contractors get a lot of business from russia. So there's the economic aspects of the relationship is particularly important and putin to have turkey as awkward member of nato driving a wedge within nato. That's a huge attraction for him and for to and sometimes to be able to play off the west and russia that's also helpful so that they play the power game very effectively by using each other and given all of that. Would you call this alliance proper and if so what should the west make of it well. It's a remarkable development given the long history between the two countries going back centuries. It's remarkable when you think of the more recent history of of the to literally coming to blows as recently as two thousand fifteen but it's far from being an alliance turkey is still a nato member that's valuable to it and it's also bristled it's fragile. Remember they are on opposite sides even where they're accommodating each other in places like syria in libya they have differences over ukraine over georgia as well so there are many places where this could deteriorate rapidly. It's rather brittle its recent depends too much on personalities with big egos so does mean that. There's absolutely no guarantee that this is going to last or even develop further so in that sense. You think the west doesn't need to worry because the alliance will eventually fall apart from. It's the concern for the west. It's certainly a challenge. One of the things that will be on the radar screen of the biden administration. It's a worry that there is this increasingly close relationship between her big important nato member and russia and although it's bristol although it could blow up in various ways it's a serious concern and worry that a nato member like turkey could drift further away from its moorings

Azerbaijan, Armenia trade blame for new truce violation

"Talk about the fighting in. Armenia. Azerbaijan to start we've talked about this a couple times the conflict itself started on September twenty seventh over a disputed territory but not everyone can do on Nagorno Karabakh transition like that six years. The NFC. Of talking about this fighting before it's scary for lots of reasons, you know obviously any violence is awful. It's especially when it's harming civilians, but it has the potential to draw in both Turkey and Russia into a broader proxy war. I think that's the bigger concern on Sunday president trump announced his team had brokered a ceasefire between Armenia Azerbaijan, which would obviously be very good thing. But unfortunately, within minutes of that ceasefire coming into effect, both sides accused the other of violating so. It seems unlikely to hold. This wouldn't be the first fire that didn't hold Putin brokered one that was immediately violated the situation on the ground is not good as seen estimates of up to five thousand people who have been killed in the fighting Armenia has accused Azerbaijan of executing prisoners and committing war-crimes. As John is reportedly used cluster munitions which are bombs. They basically released lots of little bombs that can post threats to civilians for years if they don't go off. Bennett impressed at how the Armenian community in the US has organized to raise awareness about the conflict. There have been a bunch of rallies here in La. I'm seeing you know planes dragging signs there's banners everywhere apparently president trump spoke to a group of Armenian Americans in New Hampshire for the weekend and said, ending the fighting would be quote an easy one. So that's good to know So you know the Obama Administration negotiated many ceasefires in places like Syria that didn't always hold. What do you think of this latest effort? Does it tell us anything about whether the US is sufficiently engaged in trying to solve the problem? Well, look I I on the one hand. I'm sympathetic intractable problem. It's been around for decades but were we got from the election so I'm gonNA focus on. Brown here which is. What was wrong was trump going out and spiking the football. You know I mean essentially declaring victory tweeting like as if the United States had just ended this conflict when this is very tenuous I think. You know the fact that collapsed is not a huge surprise to Russian brokered ceasefire had previously collapsed I. Think what needs to happen differently is this needs the broadest possible international engagement. You're just the US just Russia just Europeans not enough like. If we add administration I think a very broad multilateral process that brings in Russia, the European Union, the United States. These countries by the way that are selling arms to both parties to just say like you guys got to pull back from the brink here and deal with this and frankly as revised on has been more the aggressor in this case, and they basically said as much. They said, you know we're tired of waiting for diplomacy to deliver what we think is Arslan back to us, and so we're just going to start killing people including civilians and releasing. Like video footage of drone attacks on Armenians. Really really awful stuff. So I think it's just gonNa take a really muscular sustained multilateral effort with the US involved with other countries to save. We got cut out this fighting and then really start a process of negotiation around these disputed territory. So it's not just a ceasefire everybody kind of goes home, but like drive the momentum from the ceasefire talks into actually addressing these underlying territorial questions, which are there's no, there's no layup answer to that. There's no easy answer. Both sides claim it. You have to figure something out though it's a mix of territory in autonomy for the people who live there for the two warring parties.

Nagorno-Karabakh truce frays amid reports of new shelling

"Alliance to mano, and we're joined by Professor Brenda Shaffer of the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies. I begin with the news. This is Reuters. Within these last hours, Armenia and Azerbaijan accused each other on Sunday within last hours. Violating a new humanitarian ceasefire and fighting over the mountain enclave of Nagorno car. Bach after was agreed The truce agreed on Saturday came into force at midnight after a week old Russian brokered ceasefire failed to halt the worst fighting at 10. 10 GMT, The Azeri Defense Ministry said the aft Agdam region adjacent to growing a car back was under Armenian shelling. It said overnight army and military units open fire from large caliber weapons along the border, which Armenia denied. Armenia said the Azeri army had fired twice during the night and used artillery and accused Baku. Rejecting its request to withdraw the wounded soldiers from the battlefield. Mr Ambassador, I come to you with first the poor news of the breakdown in the cease fire. And then the positive news from Washington that the foreign minister of Armenia will meet with your foreign minister of Azerbaijan, and Mike Pompeo, the secretary of state on Friday. Does that look to be a moment when a more lasting ceasefire could take hold since the Russians failed? Can Washington succeed? Good evening to you? Good evening, John. Always good talking to you. And once again thank you for keeping this, Uh public and listeners updated on the development of the region. Unfortunately, issue actually pointed out the ceasefire has broken down again. That's the second time that the minions violate the cease fire. We don't fully understand why they Sign this file. Just violated very shortly afterwards. What elevation is that once they don't really want to seize fire? They didn't don't wantto engage in the Meaningful conversation on substantive talks. All they want is to prolong the occupation of the virgin lands on DH by why didn't cease fire created conditions with third parties to participate to direct, uh, posters, other parties, including courses of action in this case in tow, direct confrontation into direct conflict. That's that's a danger. Think. So this continues to because ceasefire is a good thing off course nobody wants people to die. Nobody wants to shooting to continue. But at the same time. The most important thing, of course, is no justice filed by the medical conversation and substantive talks based on international war, and that's what I hope is that meetings in Washington will produce something like that, of course. Every effort for peace is appreciated. Andi if the United States as a culture of the men's group wants to take a proactive approach to that, that's a very positive development. We don't know exactly what what exactly you expect from the conversation. But Um, a little over to the visit to Washington. Mr Ambassador. I believe in these last days, I've seen video of more missile attacks against ganja is that is that correct? These are in addition to the ones we talked about last week. It's holding. It's just horrible. Uh, easy losing on the battlefield. I mean, is exactly what every dictatorship which is militant and the hunter is doing when they was in the better. They attacked someone else's civilians so Friday, just hours off deciding the ceasefire agreement Ah, I mean, you're fired. Ballistic scarred me so into the sedation neighborhood in gadget, this tongue everything. Now they're trying to say this is occasions versus Muslims they hit in, added 500 M from the major. Go to the kitchen, Cassio and 300 M from the major mosque. This is a type of behavior over uncivilized. Nation. I mean, it's like Saddam Hussein. Firing things into Israel works for them works at the same doing that towards others, by the way. Saddam Hussein began firing missiles into civilian Attias of is a also once you began losing in his occupation, illegal occupation off of it. Washing others of the same thing. This is this was a horrible poker, Uh, scores of people died, including a good 10 years old. A 10 month old baby. Can you imagine that toilet picture over father holding it? 10 months old. Body off his daughter. There's a girl who was killed whose birthday was on our additional day, which is the way it is October, so Visit when we go into a cease fire when we're going to come into a negotiation, I want people to understand. If you look at the emotions on the outside when we go Talk to people who do this kind of thing's Ah, Professor. There is a video I have seen

S. and I present this puzzle to Gordon and also to our guest author Walter the university of Pennsylvania man who is much schooled in Chinese civilization gentleman I have anecdotes not confirm just on the front pages of China morning post but strong anecdotes from very good sources two of them that the Chinese P. LA that is the people's Liberation Army lots of the party is establishing fast caps quarantine caps made up of army tents vast in backwards areas are dated ares with open drainage ditches between the tents these are for the migrant workers who went home for the holiday and have plans to go back to their homes in the cities where they've been working in the Chinese manufacturing these cancer to be established people need to stay there for two weeks if they don't get sick they're released if they do the re concentrated they're going to identify the people and put them into groups but you can see the opportunity for trouble is vast and the Chinese Communist Party can do this because they're non transparent and because the Chinese people ark how'd or in some fashion used to trading there of BDS for GDP that just disappeared our third I cannot confirm it but I've seen the videos I am surprised at how badly the Chinese Communist Party continues to behave are you surprised actually I am surprised I wouldn't say badly that I've I've always thought their wicked but they're behaving in a transparently incompetent way now so it's quite clear with they're doing for instance you're talking about the P. L. A. campus life also built some new hospitals and I've been bragging about how they build them in ten days currently these are pre fabricated prison buildings from Turkish day of which have been moved down and this explains why they have bars on the windows and all sorts of things that you wouldn't expect in purpose built hospitals we've also had some other news which confirms they've got big problems there is a on Saturday night there was a open an internet presentation they have a little louder count the number of sick and so forth and it's kind of failed to act properly three times this each time you've gotten a glimpse long enough for people to take a web of of take a photograph and the numbers that it shows are just incomparably bigger for instance it showed on Saturday a hundred and fifty four thousand infected people which is ten times the official FAQ to figure eighty thousand suspected cases which is four times the official figure and then listen to this one twenty five thousand dead on a day when the official listing of three hundred so if there is clearly the huge cover up going on here or at least that's what I'm saying and I think that if you start concentrating these people it's going to make things worse it's also going to make it quite obvious this is the disaster of the sort that I I can think of unless you go back to the terrible died in these terrible plague food the tongue dynasty you know in the sort of seven hundred Gardner this is Gordon I think that essentially the Chinese people understand right now that there is a big discrepancy between what they can see and what the government is reporting and my sense is that this sensually any trust that did exist before the corona virus outbreak between the people and the Congress party is is now gone and that this is going to have to have consequences after this disease goes away and when the recriminations really began to dominate the national conversation it just seems to me that is can be extremely difficult for the party to get past this one largely because people understand just the party completely fumbled its response to something it should have been able to deal with I I think that's exactly right I think recrimination is the word we have many examples of how people who tried to give early warning in fact as long ago as five years there were warnings the what I'm gonna say in just a second might have trouble who we might ask the question why is it all wheel hot wives of people flying in from all this that and the other because the official narrative is these germs are coming from wild animals the interact with people and it's a kind of form of evolution is going on and that that one day a new form of of corona virus appeared in a bouncy feel free market and move on and somehow jumped into a person and that was the case one we have about a minute or so it'll still free market that why should be you hire the answer is through high is the only city which is got a level for biological enviro logical laboratory where they keep stocks of all of these things so it's sort of like say well I think the reason I saw that lever on the street was that came out of the zoo and that's why I thought this town I didn't see it in any of the towns that don't have food and analyses of the new virus show there are apparently have been insertion of DNA and so forth which are not naturally occurring wrists are certainly have not been found in natural specimens and just for good luck there is a chunk of sars virus which is also been inserted so it looks as if what we really have here is a French build biological experimentation station which is designed for the most virulent path we have thirty seconds are there thirty seconds that experiment designed to create a virus leads to the escape of a virus and then if not at all surprising what happens then are there walls in the university of Pennsylvania I'm in Baku Azerbaijan I am here thanks to Scala dot com my global partners at the embassy of Azerbaijan in the U.

"Great success of Azerbaijan today Fred a very good evening to you why did garbage chaff why did the Soviets abuse Baku an ancient and important capital in the south Caucasus good evening to you good evening to you well Mister Gorbachev was angered hurt and insulted by the as there are eight and specifically by the person who had had that they that K. G. B. Azerbaijan and then have the the the government of Azerbaijan and then went on to a distinguished career in Moscow on but what it became the third most powerful figure in the Soviet Union why was coverage of angry at him because he was angry at a whole group of local leaders around the USSR who were asserting that right then do that and traditions and cultures of their of their native land hi hello yes god Lydia who was the key figure and they and Azerbaijan he got fired and in nineteen nineteen eighty seven and he and and but so then we have December twenty second of eighty nine we have the Berlin Wall falling and you and you have suddenly Azerbaijan's neighbor Armenia making claims against territory which had been part of the by John for the throughout Soviet times this created a situation not unlike what existed between India and Pakistan after the partition of moms in both countries attacking people of the other country who happen to live on their territory so that the back background what happens specifically leading up to the to the massacre of of twenty January is that as you said the Red Army was is in present in force around Baku there were fights taking place you can call them part groans just as there were programs taking place on the Armenian side but the economy the Red Army did nothing and nationally only one order finally came from Mr garbage at himself did did they act and of course a hundred and seventy people were killed and another eight hundred in injured the next day immediately there were million people out on the streets this symbolized and and it and marked the end of communist rule in Azerbaijan but then it it that and and you can say this was one of the key moments in the overall collapse of the USSR no wonder that garbage at himself that this was the greatest mistake of my career it was in it was a brutal mistake it's just thirty years frat and yet I did not have this background story when I first arrived in Baku two years ago and I've been there several times you've been there many times there the it is it is a phenomena then what's happened since then in thirty years this is a modern capital with without a with a booming economy and surging consumerism how we measure an economy you would never know that it'd been abused I was told the story of how when the Soviets pulled out another was after this massacre they were left with nothing a broken country without resources and they build it themselves will literally took him thirty years it's a miracle it is impressive what they've done that I'm back is by any measure one of the great and very very attractive modern cities however they didn't have the advent it they did have the advantage of a of oil I heard and remember the contract of the century that enable that oil to get to Europe but beyond that they had a and a population that was absolutely committed to the to building a new nation this it out about John it briefly been independent after World War one and was smashed by the Soviet Union so there was the will to build something new and build better and they did in remembering the black January that January twentieth and the victims and all of that that it's become a way of Azerbaijan remembering how hard it's worked is the way I take this now look what we've done and we remember our roots much the same way we remember early conflicts like the Boston massacre that led to the creation of the Continental Congress in other words there the shot heard round the world and in Lexington yes indeed but beyond that I I think there there what we tend to lose sight of is that there was a growing and deepening spirit of national identity religious identity cultural identity new call of a you name it all over the former Soviet Union all of whom were rebelling against the concept which was the Soviet concept of a of a merging of nations so when we look at the world today where we have many people asserting identity again we should learn very soberly we should learn from the experience of the Soviet Union which pushed it super national analogy if you will also be at identity down pays people's throats and they rebelled and eventually overthrew the USSR I'm Fred we're at the edge of a voter parliamentary vote and I'm going to be in Azerbaijan in back for the parliamentary vote I take it this is a way of signaling that Azerbaijan is now moving sophisticated Lee into the world of democratic politics and also feels confident enough in a rough neighborhood to to stand for you know competing parties is that a way to take this well I it certainly is a step in that direction it has been a very controlled system very powerful role for the president and certainly mind minority parties and have suffered and had a difficult time but there is a wave of reform taking place across Central Asia and the Caucasus and it can be seen also in in in Armenia neighboring Armenia and they can be seen and especially and was back and stand but also in Kazakhstan this is something very very important and by looking at each specific case alone we're missing the bigger picture and that is a at the height finally moving beyond the soap post Soviet hang over Frederick Starr fed stars the author most importantly of a book that will transform your understanding of a part of the world with that we did not get in school in the twentieth

"Of Azerbaijan it is a resource rich country that is going to transform the whole region it also is a country of a surging population I see lots of baby carriages in Baku so therefore I turned from knowing about the resources that are going to be use fossil fuel resources going to be used for the security of Europe and Asia minor to thinking about diversification of the economy and I'm very fortunate to have here in the port of Baku which is a brand new glass tower with great cappuccino on the first floor a mean Hussein off aid to the first vice president who's going to educate us about the thinking now about the economy and the thinking about what the economy will look like in twenty five years for the new population and the population here already I mean a very good evening to you thank you for this all right it's not only about a fossil fuel resources it's about the wealth that will come from that and transforming that wealth into a knowledge economy what does it look like good evening to all good evening Sir thank you for having me and welcome to Baku Azerbaijan it's always a pleasure to have such well known people as such as yourself to be here and to actually see first hand what's going on so we hear in Azerbaijan a living through quite interesting times it's been quite a journey since the collapse of the Soviet Union and I'd like to set the stage a little bit by providing some background on what we've been through all this year's to be in position to better understand what is coming next good this is Christmas time nineteen ninety one Soviet Union collapse and all of the attendant countries including Azerbaijan. were cut loose on the route yeah here we go the only difference as what John had at that time is that it started its real economic reforms much later than many other so former Soviet republics and also much later than eastern European transition countries so that was quite the a striking difference we lost about two years due to objective reasons because the country was under threat by military aggression by one neighbor country and it was no time for us to think about how to build up the market economy at the time. this is there was a second difference that was really distinguishing Azerbaijan at the time which is we are we were the country which experience the deepest recession among go older former Soviet republics we lost about sixty percent of Paul were pre ninety one GDP and that was the the biggest collapse among all other countries so that really put us in a very disadvantageous position from the very outset. but the third difference of Azerbaijan experience was that during the short period of time and when you got a list of the fact that we experience the largest recession we actually were also the country which has a covered the fastest in just about the two thousand five we have fully recovered the pre ninety one GDP in just three years we doubled it and by two thousand fourteen we tripled over GP so that was a tremendous trajectory of gross translating into people's slow quality of lives and will be and that was the also tremendous transformation that we've been observing people who would come to Baku in early in the late nineties and then about five years later they couldn't recognize the city so and it's interesting to understand what it's like to leave through that kind of transformation that's one question the second question is what is it based on how sustainable is that. and the you know how can we actually make a quality change based on that kind of transformation. so this questions are really have been on the top of the is it a gender of economic policymakers for quite a you know more than a decade. and of course the answers are not simple so the there like there there are things that we need to take into account including the international experience the experience of other countries similar to Azerbaijan in this or another way so I just wanted to draw your attention to one fact which is the well known by now that Azerbaijan is a resource rich and free and the the fact that we have come under quite sue is external shocks in the past twenty twenty five years have been a yeah giving us some lessons for example I wanted to talk about two thousand fourteen collapse in oil prices the second half of two thousand fourteen we so global oil prices come down and two thousand fifteen in an effort to cope with that challenge of central bank has to the value of a national currency but two times so that translated into a radical fall off living standards double digit inflation. complete loss of confidence in the banking sector as well as a shift from a very substantial surplus in the balance of payments into quite a significant deficit so this actually the walls of very major test to the economist has a budget. and as a result who starting from two thousand sixteen we started the macro economic stabilization programs and the structural reforms and which actually was mainly focused on trying to re establish macroeconomic stability and then of course trying to push for over two more radical structural reforms to increase the role of not all sectors in other words to actually. try to pursue the diversification agenda more vigorously. and here's the point that I wanted to drive that talking about knowledge economy yes and I wanted to draw your attention to one of them. recent. research number the World Bank. wore a Eurovision countries trying to understand where developing comes from is the versification is such a fundamental factor for development. by the fact that by the way I need to mention that there is no evidence worldwide the diversification is necessarily leading to the development. it is neither a cocinar effect so we've seen countries which are well diversified and they grow well well well but we also see countries were not well diversified they still growing well so there's no a clear cut evidence suggesting that if we diversify our experts and we become a developed economy. so then that points us to the issue what is more important. to diversify our experts to diversify our assets. and this is what the World Bank is saying they're saying that. if you consider your national wells comprised of three different components. natural wells produced wells. an intangible wells. natural wells being. natural resources. produced wells being all the infrastructure and the capital that you put together as it as the economy. and intangible wells meaning the human capital and institutions. institutions here imply rules of the game. so in if you look at the composition of this three components of natural world in the case of Azerbaijan you see a dominance of natural wells. so we when we started exploiting all were Kara a hydrocarbon resources and that gave us immensely natural resource wells that was accumulated partly under partly it was directed to producing a more than infrastructure physical social we see a lot of bridges we see a lot of roads water supply irrigation so the throughout Azerbaijan the infrastructure has been upgraded to the top much level. and that actually is going to be the two all were produced capital produced wells but what we lacking and what we need to really shift of focus too is to invest more in human capital and invest more in building more effective more efficient market institutions I want to ask about that when we come back at him because what I've observed over the time of my travels here is that you have a lot of smart young people who speak many languages on like in America we only speak New York Yankees language and so I wanna I wanna hear what you're thinking about going overseas to educator educating here in building your university structure I'm speaking with the aid to the president a first vice president of the Republic of Azerbaijan and mean Hussein off where they've been and where they're going given that their natural resource rich and
