"Freak out but it's not it's a scenario he's not used to, whereas George Russell's like mate every week in Williams. Well I was gonna say surely the reason is well part of the reason is George Russell is just very used to having shit cars at his disposal. And Mercedes is look, there's probably still top half of the grid. Maybe even third best, depending on the track and everything. But it's clearly not very good. It is closing in physical pain in George Russell's situation, so he's used to shoot cars. It's also been the thing even in Hamilton's best, he's even last year with you before. If there were grip problems, Valtteri Bottas, that often be the racers he'd be doing better. I don't even think Monaco last year weirdly with a car just couldn't grip and Bottas could figure it out. So maybe actually we lead to the weakness of Hamilton's being exposed. But over the last few years, when Hamilton has been winning everything and people have been going to be pouring, isn't it? I think we've said soaking these moments, not that they really enjoyable. But you're watching the greatest. Like you will be watching the greatest of all these years. I think it's now so interesting that you are watching a guy who arguably still at the peak of his powers. Maybe arguably just over the hill, but pretty much there. In a car that can not do what he wants, he knows he's retirement is soon. I feel like it's in the next few years, maybe he'll extend because he really wants his 8th and maybe it's not soon, but it just felt like even last year, regardless of the outcome before even Abu Dhabi. It felt like, you know, it was around the corner. It was a matter of getting the 8th and grinding it out, cashing in your superannuation. And away you go. We are watching something that's really rare in sport, I think, which is this stifled genius for one of a better phrase. And I know maybe I'm being disrespectful to Sebastian vet who's been doing this for many years now. But Lewis Hamilton is at the top of his game. This was going to be his 8th championship year. It's not going to happen this year. This is something you don't see often in sport, not that often. And I think we also should be absorbing this moment. Yeah, well, it says shoe back in 2005. Moment to be honest. All conquering season and look what happened. But that's it. Did bounce back quite a bit in 2006 and walked away from it? But yeah, this could be, this would be interesting. It had a bit of a crossroads at this point. Yeah, but again, I need some more data before I can be really confident to write off Mercedes for good because they have been detained there have been crying total wolf for a very long time about the performance of their car and they often turn it around. This is what's the space? Yes. And finally, I do want to mention Haas because they've been doing okay recently. Except for Mick Schumacher, who's been doing a bit of shit recently, but you know, hopefully he gets there because we all want to see mixing all right. Kevin Magnussen is doing good job though. Good enough job, in fact, that teams are choosing House of cheating, which tends to happen when it is doing well. He would have if he would have fornicated the whole paddock for one point. I don't know what he would be doing to be accused of illegal activity with his car. I think it's a flattering case to be. He would, I don't think he thought at any point in the new year when January came around. That's annoying. Father, that's on my case. Do we ever think that give it a few more months? And his cars, yeah, are in the points. They are being accused of well, they have to be chamber because can't be this good. Kevin Magnussen can't be finishing 9th on marriage. Must be shady. It's like a photocopy from maranello may have arrived in Charlotte. And..

"But sort of technically a poll in Monaco and his star performance in Canada in 2011, not enough to get him in this list Kev. Not quite. I mean, there were two drivers that George Russell wasn't one of them. I don't think you can put someone in this like this on the basis of while outing. And let's not forget, although he could have won that race, he was out qualified by Valtteri Bottas as well. So it wasn't a complete dominant weekend. He was right with Bottas. It was around qualifying. We expect him to be better than Bottas, right? And to be ahead of him on this list in a couple of years time. So in that context, that race will become less significant over time, I think. But yeah, the two candidates are for number ten other than faggioli where Mark Schumacher and Richard seaman that pre war England the best pre war English driver. Seaman doesn't get in because really he won the one race, which was slightly fortunate because his teammate caught fire in the pits. And he was still, he was really becoming a good driver, a great driver when he was killed at spa the following year. So he doesn't quite make the list on that. Whereas Mark Schumacher's problem is the other way around. I think that if you're Mark Schumacher fam, are you pleased that he came back for those three years? I'm not sure that he did it would be harsh to judge him on that. As his whole career, because I think the motorcycle accidentally had between retiring from Friday O 6 and coming back in 2010 was more significant than perhaps people realized at the time, he also missed three whole seasons, the rules changed in that time. But ultimately, you know, he wasn't as good as Nico Rosberg, who wasn't as good as Lewis Hamilton. How key was he to building that team up? I'm not entirely convinced that he was, and you can see a big step up actually in their competitiveness when Lewis Hamilton joined the 2013. So it was very close, but if we're comparing with, he actually has some similarities because they both have those sort of three years stints at Mercedes both as Mercedes came back in as a constructor. So Mercedes problem in 1934 was that it didn't have a top line driver, Rudolph correct shoulder of the obvious one, but he was still injured from his Monaco crash, so they weren't sure that they could run on him and Manfred von brauchitsch was still too much to inexperience really. Fagioli was an established top line he had one Grand Prix for Maserati and Al from Io. And so he was the kind of Mercedes let's hire a Top Gun. And he did do that job. He did win races, which marks the macros he didn't do in his second coming. The reason he isn't any higher on the list this list because fagioli actually fascio actually was someone who was a top liner in the pre war days. He just couldn't play the game with Mercedes. He fell out with Alfred norbert was a very fiery Italian versus a very organized German team. He felt that crack Yoda was getting preferential treatment. There's even there's even an example of him stopping a perfectly healthy car and walking away when he felt the team orders weren't going in his favor in the middle of the Belgian Grand Prix. Very fiery character didn't really fit into the Mercedes mold. So that's why he couldn't really be any higher on this list. But by the same token, he did come and he did win races and he was a FrontRunner. So Connor thought we had to be there. But he couldn't really be any higher. I mean, that's a pretty good care if that's a key back in his place, not for not for the first time. But let's move on to driver at number 9. We're staying in the pre war era. This list is really testing my inability to pronounce people's names and surnames, which is ironic really considering my surname but there we go. And number 9 is Manfred von brauchitsch, as you said, Kev, is Mercedes ears 1934 to 1939, one three times three major Mercedes Grand Prix wins, no titles. Kev, why is one brought it at number 9? So for me, he's almost like the Mercedes Mercedes number two for this period. So I don't think he ever really. I mean, there were days where he was as quick as the team leaders. And he did win races. He had a particularly good performance at the 1937 Monaco Grand Prix, which was in the W one two 5. So 650 brake horsepower monster of a car on ties that looked like they fit on a bicycle rather than a racing car these days. So yeah, pretty phenomenal performance. So he did have some strong days. And he was very quick, but he tended to be the secondary driver. The backup to your crack show and then the Hermann Lang later on. So wasn't always the luckiest, but a kind of easy in the list because he was a long-term stalwart of the team throughout that period did play the game in a way that fagioli didn't. And probably worth mentioning as well that as Q lights dimension tatsuya nouvelle at every opportunity in these podcasts we've decided. Nuvolari is famous pre war 1935 German Grand Prix win in an outdated Alfa Romeo. I actually only came about because von brauchitsch had a puncture on his leading Mercedes in the closing stages. So although it was a great victory for naval, he did need a bit of luck and it was one round hit you not for the first or last time had a little bit of misfortune on the Mercedes side. So a kind of a loyal lieutenant is what's got him in the list really. Yeah, nothing to disagree with really, but it's just an observation. I would say probably with the exception of obviously Hamilton and rossberg and Fangio moss, Mercedes just really have a good knack at having a number one and it almost designated number two during a sustained period of success and I think as Kev is sort of alluded to. This is another case in point here. Indeed, and that's what's going to make the upcoming 4 million 1 season so fascinating with George Russell, so highly rated going up against the most successful driver is there in the most successful driver of all time in Lewis Hamilton. But let's come on to the driver at number 8 and following on it's another excellent number two driver for Mercedes, although I'm sure he'd be absolutely furious there himself I referred to in such a way. It's Valtteri Bottas, obviously just departed from the Mercedes Benz Formula One scene. Joe from Mercedes between 2017 and 2021 following Nico Rosberg's shock retirement took all of his Grand Prix wins ten victories and of course no titles. Kev, why is Bottas at 8? And why is he ahead of Ron about it if there are sort of similar number two sort of status? I think even more success scored in his Mercedes, let's not forget the Bottas has been part of that can run of all those constructors titles. And in fact, on a separate piece, I've been working on I've sort of compared number two drivers through the years. And as you say, Bottas, hated the wingman tag, didn't he? But the reality was that he was effectively number two to Hamilton. And Bottas, his scores against Hamilton.

"Via our sister publication GP racing magazine. The original F one Maestro, who said the bar for Schumacher and Hamilton. Juan Manuel Fangio, peerless on track and charming off it, established the gold standard of Grand Prix greatness. Nigel roebuck writes about a remarkable champion. In Nigel's words the brown of the facsimile helmet wasn't dark enough, but never mind. The pole position trophy won by Valtteri Bottas in Mexico was something to savor. And Valtteri, the epitome of Finnish calm, had a crack in his voice as he accepted it from Jackie Stewart. The power of Juan Manuel Fangio endures and always will. Once, at interlagos, I saw him tap set up on the shoulder and Ayrton. Momentarily annoyed, swung round, then saw who it was and tears glistening, but his arms around the old man who was his earthly God. I first met Fangio at Monaco in 1971. On the morning after the Grand Prix. Outside rampal days, a lovely old restaurant on the rundown from casino square, there seemed to be a lot of activity, and I wandered in to take a look. The place was packed with movie people, and in their midst, sitting quietly at a table was the great Juan Manuel, with knives, forks, and model cars, he was fighting old battles again. This for.

"So then Valtteri Bottas set the fastest lap. And two to his credit, he did back out massively in final sector on his lap, so although he set the fastest lap, Hamilton was easily able to smash it another another lap later, but it was yeah, it was just a really funny moment that we had the I believe it was a battle where it's James call saying don't do this and then he did it. So yeah, it was a funny one, but no, I mean, the atmosphere in the Netherlands is crazy and I mean I've only been sad, I didn't go to that race. I've only been once in my life and that was on a school trip we did as a part of a cricket tour to Holland. And it went to zambot beach, I think we did some fishing on zambal beach. And there were others a race track near here and I said, yeah, it's quite small like it used to be F one, but it's nothing special. And now I just think it's just crazy how it's just exploded into this huge thing for everyone in the Netherlands because of the Max Verstappen facts it because of everything he has done. And I know one of our colleagues Owen, he put he's from the Netherlands, he put on Facebook after the season he was like, I never thought I would see an F one race in my home country. I never thought I would see a Dutch world champion and it's just incredible how it's come together for that market. So yeah, I think anything other than a max victory would have completely torn up the script for that weekend. So it had to be really, but take nothing away from his performance because he was on another level. And in terms of the Bottas dynamic within the team, we'll come to that at the end of the podcast. We talk a little bit about team dynamics. This race was September 5th and I think it was the day after the news became public that he would be changing seats. So at that point, he knows he's not racing for the team anymore. I presume is that the way it works, but he would have known the day before, right? He would have known it was pre spa, I believe it turned out in the end, by him and George Russell came out of the summer break knowing where they were going to be racing next season and how things were going to go. So yeah, and just to be clear, I mean, that's not impacting the fast lap stuff to what it was literally the power of that late pit stop was so strong that Bottas like even without trying basically was going to set the fastest lap even when he backed out. So yeah, but it was definitely the dynamics here. It was interesting. I think that it was by that point. Everyone kind of knew where they were going to be landing for next season. If George Russell, his stock was just going up and up after waited at spar as well. And yeah, it was a very interesting part of the season. The driver market, I remember that the days leading up to Monza. There was so much going on in terms of the drive movements being confirmed. And we thought, well, let's maybe see how this weekend's race goes to, well it just adds some more spice to the week that we've had the busyness and boy oh boy did that. Where things would land is a nice segue onto Monza because of course max would land on top of Lois at this race. I've written frustrations, Boyle over in my notes for this one. Alex will start with you. On this one, I mean, it's gotta be the defining one of the defining images. Of the season, right? That picture that shot, oh, a 100%, a 100%, but you're right about frustrations boiling over. But the frustrations was entirely Max Verstappen. Lewis Hamilton had messed up at the start of the sprint race. That's what gets Daniel Ricciardo ahead of Norris and Hamilton. Your bot asks often wins that spin race, but he's got the big engine penalty, because the key point of the season now we've reached is where the reliability factor comes in and Honda and Red Bull had taken exchange in Russia because they just needed to make sure they had enough parts. They're not risk a failure, which is a big consideration in championship. But Mercedes, they're in San Francisco engine, the new one was faster being one harder. You know, things like that was having a big problem and they were getting through them real rate of knots at that part of the season. But yes, the boss is obviously not a factor in the Grand Prix, but Verstappen also messes up the Grand Prix start and then Red Bull has a very long picked up. And again, this is another sort of one of those unseen factors off track factors in that the clamp down on active pit stop technology, which would come in for the spa race, had a knock on effect. You saw particularly at that time of year there were loads and loads of long pit stops for things going wrong. Rebel was one of the teams that these thoughts have been particularly harmed by that because they invested quite a lot in that really clever active technology. But yeah, this happened as a long pit stop and he's furious. He loses it on the radio with his engineer with GP and you can just he's furious. And I think that feeds into what happens next, well Lewis Hamilton comes out of the pits emerges ahead of max, having been well behind him in the first inn. A match just doesn't accept it. He's like, right, I'm going alongside. I'm coming in again and Hamilton stands his ground again. He could go. He could go further. But he's like, I don't have to hear. And it's the reverse of imola. Max puts, you know, at a certain point, he has to go over the curbs because Lewis is taking the rating line as he should do. As max died in imola. And that's why it goes down as statins felt there. And it really is nearly a very, very, very nasty accident. And again, there's a sort of element of this is why things felt bad this season because obviously max wouldn't know that his tire went and Lewis on the head, but equally, his car was on top of the Mercedes, and he just walks away..

"There's enough in there to say where it wasn't his fault, but equally. He puts the car with the car goes, if that makes sense. So you could chalk that up as another down now. And it certainly costs in points because Norris is so close, Mercedes can't just let Bottas sit behind Hamilton. They have to construct his championship and pays them back later on in the season. They have to take the two four as opposed to the three four. But if Norris wasn't there and being so brilliant, Hamilton would have finished second, even though the damage car. So yeah, it's just interesting the little that the little subplots of those races. So for those keeping score, French GP Verstappen, Hamilton, Perez, styrian GP Verstappen Hamilton Bottas, an Austrian GP Verstappen, Bottas and then Lando that third place. It was the Austrian one, was that the outpouring of love on the radio from Lewis about Lando, was that Austria? Yeah, as a good ten or 15 laps that Hamilton takes to get past Norris after Perez has gone off and got the penalty when he's running second is absolutely cleared off. Yeah, there's Lewis gets goes by Hamilton says great driver, Lando, which I think is interesting asking nice about that afterwards because I think also he was so annoyed about that penalty. I think all his answers were sort of had the sort of cloud of that hanging over them because he was so annoyed he didn't get second place. But yeah, he sort of, I don't know, he's kind of interesting. You put that to the drivers. There's such competitive animals. They're not exactly going to go, oh my goodness, how wonderful it is to hear that from doing Hamilton. No, I should just like go, okay. All right, well look, we definitely can't wrap Silverstone up into any group of races because we need to talk about that. Lots of interesting things about that Saturday spring race, of course, at Silverstone, but it was the cops incident that, after that race when we did a podcast with our own Ben Anderson from GP racing magazine, who has raced through that corner three wide, who says, I think he agrees with Kevin that a perhaps a wiser head on Verstappen would have realized there's going to be nowhere for Lewis to go look is that with all the hindsight now recording yourself of the season, is that a fair criticism of max that he could have given more room or was he always going to race in there and try and close Lewis off, what do you think? Both, I think, yeah, he could have given Lois more room, but as we saw throughout the season, he wasn't going to was going to make that as hard as possible on your max to him. It was his corner as we saw from all the fallout that followed, and for all the comments by Christine Horner and helmet Marko calling Hamilton desperate amateurish. You don't stick a car up the inside at cops and all of that. It was, yeah, it was very, I think this was the first major flashpoint of the season where things got nasty and things spilled over and yeah it was a big big incident and I think that looking back even with hindsight, I think the way that the steward handled it, I think that was correct. I think that Hamilton was predominantly at fault very marginally, but I think he was more to blame than max was for that incident, but was not fully to blame. Again, the steward's report said predominantly, so did put some of the blame on max. Yeah, and I think that everything that followed with the God that Alex album reconstruction on a filming day and everything, it was a pretty crazy story and it sort of dominated F one for a good couple of weeks where we were just sort of seeing everything go back and forth and the aggression from Red Bull as well in its comments about Lois and his move. But yeah, I think it was, I think, I agree, a max definitely, yeah, he could have left more room. I mean, Alex mentioned in Spain earlier where Hamilton thought was going to happen. I was like, oh, I better get out of this. Max, yeah, okay, so much higher speed, but he could have definitely left the bigger space for Hamilton, but that wasn't going to happen. We know through this season how max has been in those wheels 12 fights like he's very aggressive and he makes very clear look I'm not moving aside. And that resulted in a huge huge accident. Alex watershed moment? Absolutely because of how much it changes the points gap as Luke said 32 points after Austria, a massive Verstappen is walking to the title. But what happens at Silverstone is the reason why he doesn't end up as the number one driver in our top 50 rankings in my F one top ten and why I still believe that it was ultimately the difference in why he wasn't for me, the best driver of the season. And it's because of what Lewis Hamilton has shown, time and time again in his career and he showed it in this season. If you want to win a world title, there are moments where you have to go, I have to back out of this. I have to take 18 points and not 25. And bearing in mind Verstappen only what three or four races earlier has lost 25 points in Baku. Yes, he was gifted, Lewis Hamilton, not winning 25 points in Baku by the magic button incident, but he's got to think just on this one occasion I just need to leave him that little bit more room. Now Hamilton equally has gone right. I can not afford to back out here..

"You've got Max Verstappen going wheel to wheel with Lewis Hamilton, who is the aggressor in the term one instant in the first instance. He lives Hamilton on pole position, which max has absolutely gifted him an off track moment in qualifying needy put Perez on pole, Perry. He's not the fastest qualifier. We know that staff should be beating comfortably Lando Norris was nearly on the front row after those track limits. And Hamilton is basically gifted pollen and his car believe his luck. But at the start, Red Bull did a lot of work over the wind so I got much better at that start to turn 21 was to have an aces the start. That was a theme in the season as well, although some of them did backfire as I'm sure we'll come on to later and Hamilton was like right, I have to try here. Go to the outside line and match just happen as is he's right because he was so far ahead and on that line runs the amount of matter of rude, runs him out on the road but does it in a fairly rude and forceful way. Comes about 7 kerbs, get some damage. So there we go. It's the first, right? This is the first real flash point. I think time for a Bahrain was contentious in its own way, but this one is a bit different. Then you've got The Rain, the Verstappen is winning pretty comfortably. He's got chunk ahead of Hamilton. He's sort of aging back, but then he goes off, he makes that big mistake as they lap George Russell ends up in the gravel and that was a real shocking moment because I don't think we'd seen that man with him in many, many years, that kind of error and certainly not in races that really, really matter. So that was a theme of the season. This was not Louis his best year, far from it, I think, equally there were moments as we'll come on to later where he was at the absolute best that he was comfortably better than anybody else. But yeah, that race also got the massive crash between Russell and Bottas. But also equally, I was something that I wanted to put a case on wanting to make from having gone through this race. How good Charles Leclerc was in that race and it's completely forgotten because of the red flag which saves Hamilton, which gets him back on the lead lap. He's absolutely locked into it there, charges about the second, very good, but without the red flag he's never in that position. It wiped out a nailed home podium for leclerc, who would driven away from Perez who was falling off the road left right and center, even behind the safety car at one point I think. He was absolutely nailing it. The one of the great lost drives of the year was leclerc in that stage, I think McLaren probably insistent that Ferrari had the third fastest car for out, but he didn't look like it at the start of the year. Look at his disappears. And it's forgotten from history because the red flag safety car closed everything up. He doesn't have a radio, Norris gets by him, Hamilton gets by him and he comes forth. Anyway, I just thought I thought that was worth mentioning there. Maybe because Lando came third improving on his fourth in Bahrain, maybe he took some of that tension away from the liquid he reckoned? Yeah, definitely. And I think that there was so much hype around Lando's performance that weekend. It was a very, very good display, don't get me wrong, but and I think it was maybe a sign of sort of leclerc season as a whole. I think leclerc season has been criminally underrated. I think that I saw, I think the F one fan power rankings were put out a couple of days ago and the clerk's 9th for the year on there. It's crazy. He's been so good this season. And I think that imola was yeah, one of those races where, yeah, he was fantastic. And I think that, but I think I would agree that it was that race was a good sort of microcosm of the seasons to follow. And I think the other big in some of the crash between Valtteri Bottas and George Russell that brow the red flag and Russell post race gave some very spicy comments saying, oh, like wood boss ass of defending that way if it wasn't me signaling like, oh, as in I'm the guy that I might take a seat next year, what does that mean? And that really just stoked the fire and I think that, yeah, Bahrain, so got the season going and yeah, we have that sort of track limits drama. Emily, I think there was more track limits. Jargon, I'm stuck in my ten things now and I've said it race to how boring track limits I'll talk about and that is again very fitting for the seasons to follow. But yeah, I think it was just a weekend where you thought okay F one 2021 is really up and running now and it's getting pretty pretty feisty out there. What are you saying about leclear being underrated? I think that's what Martin was saying earlier about that. You're only as good as your last race thing is really, really true. I think a lot of people were seeing all those late podiums from science. And I don't think Carla science was very, very good as I'm sure we'll come and talk about later this year, absolutely brilliant, but he had the rubber the green more later on in the year and also the people are like, well, he got more and way more podiums than the Clare. How can you rate leclerc higher or whatever? And it's like, well, yeah, but if you look at all his podiums, to a certain extent that he's only on the podium because of luck. He's brilliant. He done brilliantly to get in that position. But that's the reason why he ends up there is that you need something massive to happen ahead of him. And also, Leclair's brilliance, much more of it came earlier on in the season. So that's why people at home when we get, well, he probably stayed the same level, science just rose up to him. So anyway, that's fine. And you look at the stats as well underlies it, leclerc, our race science 14 8 this season and had two DNFs. And now qualified him. Yeah, our qualified in 13 9. Monaco as well, that was come online. Nailed on podium, possibly even a win for the clerk. I think win. Yeah. So it's things like that where you say, yeah, I mean, science had a bloody good season. Don't get me wrong, but I think that leclerc season was better. And I think that people are thinking, oh, that has the clerk been sort of found out or beaten like no way. It's just speaks to how good both of them have been this year. Okay, let's move on to Portugal and again maybe a bit of a forgotten race Alex. What do you think? Again, Lewis takes the win. Max and Valtteri second and third, 30 seconds odd behind, but that gap is inflated because they both did a late stop whereas Lewis stayed out. Maybe not a classic race Alex what do you reckon in Portugal? It isn't isn't, I think the reason why it is a forgotten race and you're right Martin is because it's a classic Lewis Hamilton race in the he doesn't get politician how to Bottas does a very good job gets politician, Louis then is quite funny as the safety car restart. Oh, Kimi raik being absolutely underwhelming and driving into the background's only idea given actually changing setting and his steering wheel, oh my goodness, my letting down 12 year old Alex who's watching F one in 2003 and it's like come on, not how you made that mistake. Anyway, the safest car restart, and bought us leaves it so late, Louis has tucked in behind him, Lewis then gets such a good run on him. He goes to overtake Bottas, but that lets him Verstappen and he's like, well, you're not coming back across me in the slipstream..

"Now, here are the standings in Formula One after Sunday. The driver standing look like this. Max Verstappen is in first with 351.5 points. And second, you got Lewis Hamilton with 343.5 points. Vader Botox has 203 points in third and Sergio Pérez, the other Red Bull drivers got a 190 points in fourth place. And the team or constructor standings you have Mercedes, which is narrowly narrowly ahead of Red Bull Mercedes isn't the first place with 546.5 points Red Bull is in second with 541.5 points. There are only 5 points a part of each other. Lewis one, but Valtteri Bottas did not finish. So with max getting second and Sergio Pérez getting fourth in Qatar, Red Bull actually gained a lot of ground on Mercedes, and it's very possible we see a world where Lewis Hamilton could win the individual drivers championship, but Red Bull could still very much win the constructors..

"Faster than anybody else on track. So max did a great great drive. And yeah, I think that it was impressive given that Louis had such a pace of vantage that he could hold on for as long as he did. Maybe that's why he was so aggressive at time for because he thought I've got no other way of keeping Lewis behind. So I think that, yeah, it's come away. Okay, you've still got a points lead. It's down to what 14 point star. So he's lost 5 across the course of the whole weekend. Thanks to his Peter and the sprint race. So not the end of the world. I think the biggest of alarm bells will be just how quick Mercedes was, particularly in a straight line. But I think max, like he's been very, I mean, almost annoyingly so. Like very much like, well, yeah, if we got the best car we'll win if we don't, we won't, and it won't change my life if I don't win the title or I do whatever. And personally I would love to see a bit more fire of like, yeah, I have to win the title. I'm giving so much for it's my life dream. That's his approach and fair enough. Really that actually ran quite true today that yeah, he didn't have the car that was going to win the race. So I think much as Lois finishing second in Mexico was very much like now I'm going to be content with this, it's damaged limitation. I think max can treat today exactly the same way. Yeah, because even with all the circumstances around, Lewis was just on another level because of the pace of his car today. Reaching like the boss level of a video game, wasn't it for Louis? Because it was like picking him off, picking him off. And it was getting gradually gradually, I guess, more difficult. And then he got to max to stop and it was like, nah, this is going to take a few goes. And it was, again, this is what we want to see. This is everything that we want from the season is to see these two go at it, because they are great. And as Luke said, you know, max it absolutely everything today that you possibly could have including running out of road. So I think you can't fault. He had a great start, you know, taking Bottas like he did, especially after what happened yesterday in the sprint to come back from that and to obviously Red Bull did probably went away and tried to fix the gear issue that they had or seemed to have on the sprint yesterday. But that was he knew what you had to do. He was like, I've got it. I've got to get out, stay out and hope that there runs out of time to chase me down. They played everything brilliantly. And as Luke said, you know, both not just on track, but in the pit stops and the strategy, everything was thrown at it. And it just got it went down to the dying moments of the race, where Lewis eventually found a way around. And so you definitely can't fault. It was a commanding drive still from maxed up, and even if he's ended up. On the second step of the podium today. So yeah, I don't think and again, I think that's probably why I didn't seem that disappointed. Because it's not like anything went wrong. It's just that they just didn't have an answer. So and I quite like, I'm going to disagree with quite like max's attitude, but it's so different from Lewis's. Lewis takes everything to heart and he talks about, you know, even today talked about being behind and he just had to put it behind him and he was going to come out and he was going to come out racing and I was going to max's like, yeah, I'll turn up. I'll see how I do. And I'll move on to the next one. I just think I love it. The two characters in this main title fire are so juxtaposed. It's brilliant. I love it. So, yeah, I think absolutely stellar drive from max day. Did everything he could end up P two on to the next? Yeah, that is what made this race so good as well. Like I said, everything was thrown at it. It wasn't one of those races where we have someone just sailing off into the distance. And then it's just a case of watching the labs take down. It really was fought to the very end between the teams and max as he said. Did everything he could? And that was that. Let's move on to Valtteri Bottas though. Of course, he came home at P three started on pole, but he couldn't hold on to the lead far back straight away, dropped back behind Paris but managed to get that get back ahead of him. What did you make of Valerie's day to today Luke? It was a day. I mean, the guy okay, the guy starting on pole, finishing 13 seconds off the winner and yeah, it's not brilliant, but I thought that yeah, I mean he clearly struggled through that opening extent, obviously losing the position. It's Paris and then by the time Lewis came along, it was very obvious what Mercedes were going to do. Because Louis obviously had so much of a pace advantage and a fresher engine, let alone the title permutations as well. But I think that yeah Mercedes Benz didn't they played it very well, sort of dig out of that hole a little bit, but they were able to pick Bottas under the virtual safety car. That got him the jump on Perez, of course, you say so much time when you do that. So I think that's some really good quick thinking. And then we did hear over the radio when they went for the second round of pit stops. Obviously, Red Bull triggered very, very early by bringing Verstappen in to basically prevent Hamilton from getting the undercut..

"And it's just going to be in your head and you know, that's where you never quite as fast as I think. Yeah. So both Mercedes have completed the flying laps now, Bottas goes 30 did set a purple of the Mercedes looking particularly, you know, particularly good in the middle sector. It's the first and final sectors where the Red Bull tends to shine. So he goes 30s just over a tenth off and Lewis Hamilton a further tenth and a half off Bottas in fourth. Rickard has gone purple in the first sector. He has gone perp in the first place. I wonder if sorry to show it. I wonder if bots has had traffic in the first sector. Almost certainly. It was four tenths down. How much of it have had that traffic? We saw the traffic from the bottos Bottas was ease out as I believe. He is also having a look. Oh, go on Daniel, sorry. And. You watch it live and you still get spoilers. I broke the one I broke the one rule that we set at the beginning of this. I wouldn't worry about it too much. I honestly think they were complaining in first practice at least and they've been playing less about it as the weekends gone on. They were complaining about the rears getting a bit too hot. That is quick. The rear is getting a bit too hot. And I think it might be to do with the fact that obviously, but they know the cars bouncing up on the bumps. And then it's coming back down and that's forcing the tires obviously to regret with extra lateral load, then I think they must have changed. Awful traffic. I mean, we just, I don't know if you've just seen it away and I'm on board with a Sebastian vet, but Aaron, as we talk about traffic. What picture you'd want to be on? I can't hear the team radio. Be honest I'm listening to it on mute. Yeah. I've got it on very quietly in my headphones. No, no, no, I heard that. That team radio was reminiscent of Seb when was it, would it have been Abu Dhabi in about 20, no, it was. It was Russia in 2016. I have to give you a twin. And put him in the wall.

"We had a moment in FB two, where the championship rivals lined up will to will along the main straight and up the hill to turn one, looking like they'd forgotten for a moment that it was only FP two. We saw a few spins throughout the sessions and several lap times deleted, and of course the standings are as close as ever, there is lots to chat through today. Today we are joined by Jake Vauxhall leg, or just what's technical editor, JBL is been a while since we chatted on the pod. How are you? Yeah, I'm really good. Thank you. We're getting into that final stage of the season now, which is kind of exciting. This final title fight is coming towards its crescendo lots of races for red board and Mercedes to really show what they can do over the next few rounds. So we'll see how it all goes down, but yeah, it's been such a great season. It has, indeed, and it is so great to be back in Austin. It's actually my first time at the U.S. Grand Prix and I have to say the atmosphere out here is incredible. So day one of track action is done and dusted, Valtteri topped FP one and checkout was fastest of FP two. The Mercedes versus Red Bull battle continues, it shows no signs of letting up, although in this case, it was not the championship rivals that were quickest. What did you make of seeing both Valtteri and check out quickest in today's practice sessions? Yeah, it was a bit of a surprise to see them both at the top, obviously, you know, we expect this Hamilton and Verstappen battle, but as we know Valerie's very, very good at getting up to speed, very, very quickly. You know, he just seems to have that instinct when you get into FP one. He's very, very quick. Obviously, the Lewis then dials it up, but the voucher is always been very, very good at FP one. And yes, Sergio Pérez faster than FB two. FP two was a bit of a messy session. The staff didn't get a clean lap because of traffic. The Mercedes seem to be doing sort of different run plans if that makes sense. And obviously Hamilton did go quickest but is that time was deleted track limits at turn 19? But there's a lot more to come from both teams, I think. You know, there were suggestions on the Internet that maybe Mercedes was sandbagging a bit, maybe Red Bull was found a little bit more. I think they're closer than you think. Mercedes probably does have the edge at the circuit the Americas. It has done for the last few years, but Red Bull as they have been all year are very much in the mix. That is the thing about this season, right? We go to tracks where we typically think we would be Mercedes track so we typically think they would be Red Bull tracks, but what we're finding this year is that both teams are showing up every single race and I think it was czecho Paris that was saying this weekend, you know, they don't look at it anymore as this is a Mercedes track. This is a Red Bull track. They're just taking each one as it comes because this season is shown us that either team can take it, Red Bull have been bringing their a game throughout the season and it's certainly paying off in Mercedes have certainly be stepped up over the last few races as well. So definitely definitely neck in it next still. Now I wanted to talk about the news that we had from Mercedes that Valtteri Bottas will be taking his 6th engine of the season. I believe it's his fourth and 6 races. He's going to be receiving a 5 place grid penalty as a result. Can you shed some light on why Valtteri is taking yet another engine and what the issues are that Mercedes are trying to remedy? Yeah, so it's another penalty for Bottas. Some of the issues that Mercedes is trying to remedy as you say. Is kind of isolated down to an internal combustion engine. That's the bit that's been changed quite a lot over the last few rounds. It's not clear what 100% you know, the issue is, and I think they're still trying to find out what it is, but they're very much erring on the side of caution they don't want to get into the final couple of races and really be pushing the limits of reliability, especially with the title battle going down to potentially going down to the wire. Having Bottas being able to play his part in helping potentially Hamilton get his 8th title, that's what they want. And obviously they don't want to lose a car because reliability is safe at that stage in the season. It's quite interesting as well because that was something Mercedes worried about at the start of the season as well. If you remember in testing, Aston Martin struggled and Mercedes struggled as well to get laps on the board. In Bahrain, and they seem to have sort of fixed it, but things are starting to rear their heads again and I don't know if that's just because it's old engines or whatnot or whether there is a legitimate concern about the internal combustion engine. But, you know, they're working on it. They're trying to make sure that they can keep everybody going forward into the season, the rest of the season. Without suffering reliability issues. So that's the main thing they're trying to cover off. Obviously championship implications are huge, so I think they're just being very, very careful. And don't want to go into the final round in Abu Dhabi and Hamilton has an engine problem and that loses him the title. He's been there before, so they don't know if they don't want to repeat that. Now, of course, we also had the news from Aston Martin and Williams, that Sebastian vet and George Russell will be starting on the back of the grid as they are replacing components. Obviously using the same package there, as Mercedes, looking at the on track action that we have today though, we had neither the championship rival fastest, but we did see Lewis and max racing each other up to Tam one. Pretty unusual to see drivers going will to will like that in FP two. Is this a sign of what is to come and just how competitive the drivers are feeling this weekend? Yeah, it was pretty feisty that battle between Hamilton and Verstappen in FP two going to turn one. Verstappen through the finger is Hamilton passed in called him an idiot. And obviously, yeah, it's only Friday that it want to be racing this early, but it is your right, it's so competitive between the two drivers. And it's just really, it is kind of interesting to see that that happened and you know Hamilton continued with this ash and it seemed to get to max a little bit there. Obviously, I don't want to stir things up, but he seemed to be sort of quite abrupt on the radio then got caught in a lot of traffic as well and had to abandon his fast lap. So he had an unrepresented time in any finished in 8th in FE two. So, yeah, it's just this battle between the two of them. As doctor Helmut Marko said after the session, they're not going to go for dinner together any time soon. So it's just, yeah, it's the championship scrap and it's boiling over and it's getting very, very spicy between them. It is getting spicy indeed and looking forward to qualifying tomorrow. We know that Lewis has fantastic form at this track, but this year things are so, so close as we've already touched on. Who do you think has the upper hand going into qualifying? Do you reckon the ultimately, it will be a battle between Lewis and max like we've seen it so many times throughout the season, or do you think that it will be open to their teammates, for instance, and potentially other people further down the pack? You can't discount Bottas. He's been since he signed that deal with Alfa Romeo. He's been on form. And he'll be in the frame for it. I mean, obviously, he has a penalty, but going into qualifying, he'll be up there with Hamilton and Verstappen. And Perez is looking good. He looked very, very good in FP two, and you can't discount him either..

We'll be joined by jonathan noble luke smith and checkbook so leg talking about the announcements. But we all knew it was coming. But you never really know until it's a done deal. And that is that valerie bots will join the alfred formula one. Same twenty twenty two at the start of what. The swiss outfit says is a multi year deal with the fans. Departure from mercedes has been expected for some weeks now. A return to williams was on the counts before it became clear that his destination was indeed. Alpha may kimmy reichen ends retirements announcement. Last wednesday was the first in a series of pieces of the drive market puzzle to fall into place confirmation from mercedes. George russell will be joining the well. Championship team hasn't officially happened at the time of recording. But surely that's happening in due course maybe today or later in the week or both ask will be reunited at alfa romeo with the team principal. Fred visa now. He worked with him but iot and at three back in two thousand nine and ten g. p. three and twenty eleven. That's when he won the championship and despite the strong contribution of batas over the years the prospect of promoting russell from williams ultimately proved irresistible for mercedes and the team boss. Toto wolff with the austrian was involved in balsas acids management for a long time before conflicts of interest. Obliged him to step back but wolf has long stressed that he wanted to ensure that his former protege found new seat. Should russell be given the nod for the mercedes drive and said after boss assis move to alfred was confirmed that he would absolutely have deserved to stay in. Twenty twenty two. Let's hit from john luke and festival. Jbl on the podcast debate joining me to talk about the big news across the great artists ephron reports league smith and most sport dot com ephron editor. John mobile gents. What do we think about the moves that just happened. I kind of makes me think of the pretends to be shocked. Gift costa ronald asian media. Because the thing that's kind of everyone's reaction that way. It was for so many weeks. I think it's been pretty clear what's going to happen over the zandvoort weekend. Joe dresser revealed that he'd been told practice. Bob what he would be doing. Obviously both he and value both asked have been quite klay with our answers. They both kept saying that there was not an use to shabbir. That didn't mean that hadn't been decision types of wolf. He said that he had taken decision. But it wasn't the right time so announce it so it's been pretty clear which way the wind has been blowing by. Get it finally out in the open. Put an end. So i think the big drama of city season and i think Yeah pave the way for a new shop so both full volleyball tasse out for may and really exciting options. If george russell finally with that mercedes team thinking the a decision that makes sense for all camps really. George russell come and send his contract williams. It was clear he needed to do something. Different be somewhat different being a different competitive environment. If if his career was going to progress voice it just becomes a williams driver a such a thing that kind of forced the decision on mercedes vouchers had his had his time at mercedes is giving his all just hasn't clicked not necessarily all three his own fault. I think touchable said recently. That bad luck seems to be stapled to voucher potus steering wheel because he's had a lot of misfortune and like along the way but his wins pole positions his contribution to the team on the of confront of evolving there and i think titus comment about veltri deserving to stay. There would have been correct if there wasn't george russell sitting there needing to be placed in moved somewhere so An alfred says squad car goodell fit for veltri become a team leader. He gets his multi renews. Punish with fred vesa With twenty twenty two rules. who needs. Who's going to be who knows who's going to be quick. He's gonna be slow next year. Maybe some of these midfield teams gonna make a big jump and push towards the front. We will get shocked. Podiums in twenty twenty two so i think a satisfactory outcome everybody williams. Who's in for for both houses while app. He has taken that route to go down for mayor. Have off the most ideal. What was the thinking behind that particular. Move on his part because it's quite baker kifah out for isn't it is a great me for alpha mad Nothing fred adversaries. Being quite clear for while veltri was at the top of his list he knew is capable of when they worked together from the three in. Gp three He's now he's now a race winner in formula one. He's now understands. What a championship. Winning team how it operates what it does what the mindset is will the staffing levels alike the facilities alike and that can be invaluable for a team alpha mayor especially in this cost copyright where you're having to choose what your resources go Solving is very very good for him. I think with alfred mayor he. He gets a chance to completely new environment. There's no longer any kind of element or cessation. We've williams is not going backwards in his career. He's not coming back to where he started out in formula. One a clean break on a thing. We've not seen the full. Potential of alfred meyer. This year. that bad season last year we seen some good qualified illnesses and gm nazi especially in zandvoort lost. We can but this is a team that hasn't developed by car at all When i spoke to fred vassar recently. He was pretty clear. We are the of the past the only team that has not developed the car. One bit so in theory they should have fallen down the order Be stuck at the back but at delivering occasionally the surprise performances so with this extra resource to twenty two could they spring a surprise. It's a good environment full boss. I think that jon. He's in really good spot now..

"The minimum he's a very very consistent driver who regularly finished up in Podium places and does well and Mercedes very happy with them. So I understand like there are no hurry to get rid of him. But certainly George Russell George Russell is probably the most exciting. I've I've seen from Mercedes all year where Lewis Hamilton is dominant and amazing and that's actually kind of boring because he's so far ahead every time when you have a guy like George Russell winning a race you go. Oh, this is interesting. It's new, it's different. It's fun and the three drivers who led the most laps in F1 all year or Lewis Hamilton valtteri bottas, and now George Russell's and the top with them. It's kind of crazy like Mercedes dominates this Sport and I just want to see about George Russell and a good car and I felt so bad for him man. Where He's going to win then they screwed up the pit stop then he was going to Podium but they had to send it back to the pits to take off his tires. But on the Right Tires again, then he had a puncture. So he he went from first place down volume two points. He ended up getting back into the points with really good driving got 9th Place and that is George Russell's first-ever points in form of the one but I just man it's so I feel so bad for him. Also. Gotta say people all year. I've heard people say like the Mercedes car is really bad at following and they always say that when valtteri bottas is trying to get ahead of people and passed people to get back up into the lead-off. I've heard all year. The Mercedes car is not very good at following. I heard that so many times and that appears to only be true and valtteri bottas and driving cuz Lewis Hamilton at times has driven right through the pack up to the front multiple times. They've seen George Russell did it on Sunday people keep saying this thing. It's just nonsensical not quite true. Like I get they're not supposed to be the they're they're supposed to lead the Mercedes cars designed..

"Rear-ended and so Max. And watching him helplessly get knocked out of this race made me want to yell. So I have no idea. I was trying to put myself in his shoes. How would he feel and had to be so frustrating? I have no idea how frustrated Max for staff and must have felt on Sunday in magelo. And at one point in the race, I mean Mercedes, but so far ahead they were wanting to Lewis Hamilton. Yep. First voucher botas in second. I realize there's no competition here and for me, it was nice cuz I got to check out who cares Mercedes is so far ahead. There's no drama. There's no story. They're offering me the story of the race became who's going to get third-placed and it was actually Alex Alban the from Red Bull who got P3. It was his first podium in F1 and I gotta say hey, I'm very very happy for Alex Alban awesome for him great finish. So cool. but it is a bit disappointing though because the one day Did Alex album finally shows up for Red Bull is also that one day that Max verstappen is out of the race. Like come on Red Bull. I wonder when or if at all can red bull ever put it all together where they have both of their drivers up at the front challenging Mercedes because it's worth pointing Max verstappen had that power failure and the first lab because he had this great start where he was pushing with Hamilton. He's coming around the corner. He was just pulling up next to Lewis Hamilton. Then you lose his power pushed way back. It's knocked out of the race and it's kind of wild because the starting grid for the race was won and to a Mercedes with Hamilton and bought. And then three and four Red Bull with Max for sap Red Bull with Alex Alban, and I thought maybe this is going to be the race where Read book and finally challenged Mercedes and bang Max verstappen got knocked out. I will say the battle for third was fine. In fact, Alex Alban found himself at 7th place at one point in the race, and he worked all the way back from 7 all the way up to third place. Got P3 got a Podium pretty cool for him. But I just was so disappointed. We didn't get to see Red Bull push Mercedes now Faith is not a lot else that stands out to me from the Tuscan Grand Prix. It was Ferraris 1,000th race Ferrari. They were really bad. I mean at one point it was very quiet like weird. The competitive wage Williams was catching up to do Sebastian vettel's Ferrari Ferrari and Williams are on the same level right now. That's not good. I also really gotta say no no hate against Ferrari. Yeah, the special edition like dark red Livery to celebrate their thousands 1000 race. I didn't like it. I I just I didn't look very good job. I felt bad for Kimi raikkonen Kimi raikkonen. It's a good racer. That's constantly in an inferior Alfa Romeo machine this year and he always finds himself Kimi raikkonen's a good enough race, or he always finds himself off any good position where he's either like in sixth place somehow or secondly, how does Kimi raikkonen get into these positions and then helplessly you watch him just get pass pass after pass after pass. I just feel bad for Kimi raikkonen every single time. I watch him and then because Max did not finish the F1 driver standings are just kind of not very competitive. Any more wages. Hamilton has a massive lead. Like I the only three racers in the 100s our Max. And valtteri bottas and Lewis Hamilton and Hamilton is way ahead of both for Staffing and bottas and then Mercedes has a massive lead over everybody else in the the team Constructors Cup championships. So I got no problem with it, but unless Mercedes falls apart..

"A three point one second Pitstop Mercedes was actually kind of sloppy in the pit Lane in my opinion but their car pays just so far superior to Red Bull. It didn't matter. I just wished that those little things that Red Bull does right were actually things that had an impact on the race because they do the little things right and still are nowhere near Mercedes. That's so dominant Lewis. Hamilton is with Mercedes home because their car pace is crazy now valtteri bottas did have a Another Bad start in Spain. He had another bad to earlier where he kind of that falls start. I believe it was off steering. I don't remember which Grand Prix it was he had a false start in one of the Races they decided not to penalize him cuz doctor Bob. Just had has had a weird time struggling to start races this year. We're off on turn when he got passed by not only Max verstappen. He also gave an opening to Lance stroll to get on the right of him and get inside go around him. So it's not the first time this year and it's maybe not the last name. Botas has been infected been impacted by his start on the race and it really made it. So he constantly had to chase and try to get back into position. That's why Max was happened got page two and on file TurboTax got P3 aside from Payson Central mother things now, I'm sure that Mercedes is still happy without dribbled us. He keeps getting podiums are actually probably quietly. Thankful that hey like if your if Mercedes looking about your Botox you like. Well your scores a lot of points. He gets podiums quite frequently and also as a benefit but he's not as good. He actually quite effectively stays out of the way of Lewis Hamilton. Yes Mercedes is probably not as dominant. If as if they had a better driver but a better driver would get in the way is Hamilton and cause problems and so maybe very quietly behind the scenes Mercedes is breathing a sigh of relief going. We got a perfect just the right amount of good. He's good enough to get podiums. Yep. Not good enough to get in the way Lewis Hamilton. Thank goodness..

The browser the browser central sort of list of Mel there for you. Honey is also doing things there are cashback offers through Honey in a similar way. And it also tracks prices on the number website. So like Amazon com target dot com. Walmart dot com, so often, you know, you're looking prices move a lot round a lot online, and it can kind of give you some historical perspective on the price of that product. While you're shopping getting perks. From shopping always good one thing that I learned about was dodge. Now, it's a service that links your account too. The retailers for certain deals. How does that work? Yeah. In the difference with Don at but links to your colleagues, you gotta give head of your credit card information wouldn't use that credit card in a in a physical store you go into the store it gives you cashback says not for online shopping yet. So that's a if you if you tend to be more of a store shopper that might be one that you want to check out and getting back to price tracking in particular. I second something I don't do. But I should I it's most people. I mean, why wouldn't you? What's a good option out there? Yeah. There's there's several now one that's Amazon specific and has been around for while skull camel camel, and you can basically just plug a URL of a page in there. It'll show you the productivity sometimes years of pricing history. You can also sort of sign up for alerts when a price drops on a certain product. But again, it's the these services are all tied into this idea that prices move around a lot now online, and if you're looking at a black Friday deal, it can give you some historical perspective. And speaking to that another company you made sure to mention is. I let me know if I'm saying this, right e Botta. I bought it in particular about got it. They'll offer daily deals for the big shopping week. Right. Yeah. And this is a mobile app. So this is again cer- tapping into people beat on their phones when they're shopping or shopping on their phones in the similar system to some of the others. We've mentioned where the retailers and the brands are offering about a commission and the bought is giving back percentage of that to shoppers, and they said that there are offering specific deals on thanksgiving week with higher cashback rates and commissions during that period for certain certain days. So they're trying to tap into heavy shopper period, the last one that we talked about the story is that just really really shows sort of the enthusiasm going on the space right now, it's called lolly and it similar to others. You get something back while you're shopping line. But it's not cashback. It's bitcoin and the the one of the co founders that I talked to said his idea, he's a former Ebay's executive. So he's very familiar with that model and he aims to make bitcoin accessible. To the masses. You know, your fear shopping at Office Depot or Macy's or WalMart dot com. You can earn some bitcoin that way this is good to know if I want to shop while earning bitcoin, I can and I bought I just got it. I be OT egg goodstuff, Sarah. Thank you so much for the time.
