"It's got a bit more of a rocket engine up at the guts because it's fresh engine but still to be clawing his way up the field relatively effortlessly as Carlos did. He got it a little bit mocked over with the tyre strategy and what have you. But yeah, it was very telling and yeah it's funny how that, I don't want to say the pendulum is shifting Carlos Sainz's wife, but he's starting to get comfortable with this car and it's starting to work, which is, you know, stocks up for Carlos. If you got a formula that mcginley tank, Kawasaki and in it, you got to buy now before it's too late. Yes, wow, could be a good call, especially if the Sebastian Vettel leclerc theory turns out to be true. Like this could be the moment. By the bottom. And you know, do whatever else happens in stock market terms. Unfortunately, he races for Ferrari though. I feel like that's increasingly the theme. Because this was another, I admire how much Carlos Sainz defended Ferrari afterwards despite the fact he was really heavily questioning them on team radio, which obviously he knows we can all hear her during the race. This light pit stop thing instead of gambling for third. I don't know. It sort of feels like this weekend in particular because leclerc crashed as well and was a driver era and you can't really defend a driver mistake at the end of the day. Or you know, it's just a mistake, whatever you say. It really feels like it was hammered home this weekend that this team collectively is just not ready to win a championship and with strategies like these or like not even necessarily the study. It's just there was no ambition, was there. They could have gambled on third with those old ties, but they made the pit stop and banked thief, because I guess before the race 50 seemed like a good position to finish. It just doesn't seem like this team is ready to win the title. And that for me is almost why it's not going to happen this year. The point aside, like theoretically, the points can be recovered if they have a really great second half of the season. But I can't imagine them having that greater season. Yeah, it's like if they do win it's almost a fluke. It's despite themselves. Doesn't feel particularly imaginative on that pit wall. It's just like, we're just going to do off the heme shape. There's kind of like no color and interpretation of doing things a little bit differently. So yeah, now I'm kind of with you there on that front, but it's very honorable that that's science. Yes. I want to make a budget. Just making some lineup changes in my team. So yeah, yeah. It was very frustrating. You know when Paul dies there is a good criticizing for our pit stop strategies. But that said, he's also criticizing how much David Coulthard is waiting for as well. So he's

"Pit. And they made that decision way too late. I don't know what they were thinking, how they benefited there. It felt like Ferrari threw away third place, frankly. And they might not have been able to finish here's the thing. They had a 5 second penalty. So they would have had to either finish the race and then lose 5 seconds and deal with the consequences. But I think it's very possible that they finished the race and because George Russell Sergio Pérez were behind Carlos Sainz at that point, they would have been battling for fourth, the battle would have slowed them down a lot. It's very possible Carlos Sainz could have finished 5 seconds ahead of both of them. They've got the information I don't, but it felt like they just threw away a third place finish and I thought Carlos Sainz could have pulled away from both of them and it was just very weird all around. And it makes me think like something's got to be wrong at Ferrari right now. They are terrible. At the small details. And I believe it's a leadership problem. It falls on matia bonato, the team principal, either the culture is toxic there, and everyone is tense out of fear and afraid to screw up, or genuinely, maybe Ferrari just doesn't know how to handle the small details because when Charlotte Claire crashed, it felt like the whole team ten step, which to me is more likely it's a toxic culture where everyone's feeling the pressure because right after Charlotte Claire crashed, suddenly they gave Carlos signs an unsafe release. There was poor communication. They couldn't make a decision. I think the pressure is getting to them to the team to everyone and you can't just say, you know, we're Ferrari, we don't make these kinds of mistakes. It's like, well, you are. You've had engine problems. You've had all kinds of lack of details and I just lose respect for Ferrari more and more with every race. And it's baffling to me that Ferrari can not avoid to keep shooting themselves. They can't stop shooting themselves in the foot. I don't know what's going on with them, but it shameful, it's bad. They have a car that's worthy of being first and Formula One. And looks like hopes of winning any kind of world title this year are just being thrown away with every race. We got ten races left and I've got no confidence they can make up the gap to Red Bull and Max Verstappen at this point. And then it can happen.

"He had too much body damage and lost a lot of time and just couldn't continue during the race. Now, for Ferrari, it was another weekend of pain. Yes, charla Claire won the race, good for him. But they should have had a one two finish, and I remember making a note around lap 45, I said, by the way, this is word for word what I said in my notes. I said, Ferrari is the fastest car and should win. Podium will likely be one, two Ferrari with max and third. So I was writing in and out. I was like, man, it looks like Ferrari's gonna get first and second in this race. However, what we saw was another Ferrari failure on lap 57 of 71 Charlotte Clare was in first. Max Verstappen was in second and Carlos Sainz, the other Ferrari was in third and Carlos had tires that were 13 laps newer, by the way, then Max Verstappen, who was ahead of him. And more pace, he's gaining ground. He's getting ready to pass him. And as Carlos Sainz is about to pass Max Verstappen for a second place and basically secure a one two finish. Suddenly Carlos Sainz had engine failure and Ferrari botched it again. It's like, are you kidding me? Ferrari had basically everything going right for them. And once again, the results slipped right through their hands. Carlos Sainz Carr went from performing beautifully to suddenly it was rolling backwards down a hill on fire and the engine was blowing up. Damaging the side pod from the inside. It's horrifying. And kind of scary, honestly, to think about driving a car with explosions happening right behind where you're sitting. So despite having the two fastest cars on Sunday, what we saw was the fourth engine failure of the year for Ferrari. Can not get a break from these planes, man. Oh my goodness. Anyway, so all in all, Carlos signs Sergio Pérez and Nicholas Latifi had to all retire early and did not finish the race. Now, one more fun storyline from Austria is this. Alpine and McLaren walk away from the Austrian Grand Prix tied. They both have 81 points. They're tied for fourth and Formula One. We're halfway through the year. And to me, that says a lot about the improvement Alpine is made. They've caught up to McLaren and McLaren has not been as impressive as I thought. And I absolutely love Fernando Alonso. He's not perfect, but he's an old school driver, very entertaining. I loved when he was wagging his finger at Yuki tsunoda as he passed him as Alonzo passed him in Austria. Also Fernando Alonso once drove for McLaren and you know he enjoys that they're tied and wants to beat them very, very badly. So this Alpine McLaren battle, I told you a couple weeks ago, it's really interesting and really fun. It keeps getting better and better and better and I absolutely love it. Now here are the driver standings after this weekend in Austria. In first place and form of the one he got Max Verstappen with 208 points in second, you got Charlotte Claire with a 170 points in third. Sergio Pérez with 151 points, fourth is Ferrari driver Carlos Sainz with a 133 points in 5th. George Russell with a 128 points ahead of his teammate Lewis Hamilton was in 6th with 109 points. Here are the team standings or the constructors standings in Formula One so far, halfway through the year in first, get Red Bull 359 points in second is Ferrari with 303 points.

"And that's not what they're here for, because they won't then win races or get them podiums. So yeah, they're obviously going to be pushing other areas where they can get solutions, whether it's to solve their purpose you or rather bring it the level playing field a bit closer through different means. But to come back to the general situation, they're still largely where they were before. It does seem that when they're at smooth attracts or just track by track, it is incredibly variable. Yeah, like for example, that Spanish Grand Prix, it looked almost solved. There were very optimistic in that, and then you get through Monaco and Baku street circuits, different time X different setups and everything. And it suddenly is worse, it's ever been. So yeah, it will swing from race to race until they basically get on top of it. And whether that even comes down to car concept in terms of it has been this talk of do they give up on this concept, it's probably too early to say, but yeah, if they can't solve it, then at some point, they may just have to give up on it, but we're a long way from knowing that answer yet, but we're still in this bit of looking for vicks. They're looking for a fix, but like we mentioned about Ferrari, we've suddenly got 5, 6 races coming up in about 6 or 7 weeks. So if they don't have an answer soon, there's going to be a lot more bouncing around and painful backs. And yet George Russell, he didn't look as affected. A fraction of the amount of Lois and yet taller drivers are meant to suffer more from it. It is an odd subject to fully get your head around. Seems like a good time to run down the driver's standings as we are after the event Max Verstappen on a 150 points with two DNFs this season followed by teammate Sergio Pérez and a 129 the head now, as I mentioned of Charles Leclerc, also onto DNFs, but maybe worth pointing out that Max Verstappen has retired from races that he wasn't due to get such a big points haul if that makes sense. Leclerc has retired from bigger points losing positions. George Russell continuing that amazing run even being called mister consistency on the radio in fourth. Carlos Sainz with 83 points, Lewis Hamilton 62 Lando on 50 in 8th place Valtteri Bottas on 40 points followed by Esteban ocon 31 Pierre gasly 6. Mercedes Mercedes team coming away from an event once again where they're going to be really happy with the result today because of external factors not because they've solved anything. Yeah, it's pretty mad that George Russell is closer to leclerc in points than leclerc is to Verstappen. But I don't think any of us thought that based on the performance of Mercedes, it's pretty crazy, but the fact that Mercedes is closer to Ferrari than Ferrari is to Red Bull is probably not where we thought we would be at this stage in the competition. But as we said, Mercedes has been the most reliable car. It's the only car on the grid that hasn't had a DNF this season. Considering all their problems, George is also the only one who's brought home points every race. So although painful, consistency is key in at least staying in the battle because we could be in a position where we're talking about George Russell actually in the battle, at least mathematically, whether or not it's going to turn out realistically, probably not. I mean, I did joke that imagine if Red Bull and Ferrari implode, this is like the most ultimate what if ever. And George just keeps putting in results and wins on consistency. We have seen world championships one on consistency rather than run away or the most wins. So it's an interesting one. It's kind of a bit of a strange narrative that we're going to have throughout the season, but they just seem to be dogged with too many issues in terms of their outright performance that and for me, just not to dwell too much on the bouncing issues and the safety concerns. But I know it is massive, massive, massive talking point on Twitter. It's quite dark, isn't it? To use your drivers as a pawn to get what you want, performance wise, it's quite dark. How far do you go? How far do you push that as an advantage? But we did hear that after the, all the drivers came together to discuss, was there an issue with bouncing and all of them said, yes, apart from one. Any guesses who that driver was? Go on. Is Fernando Alonso? The only driver. Who said that there wasn't an issue. All the other drivers agreed that there is something going on here. It is uncomfortable, even if they're all suffering from varying degrees of it. And I do agree with both Hayden and Alex in terms of those that are on top of it, shouldn't really be penalized by the FIA coming in and mandating things or allowing people to change it. As they said, if you've got it wrong, it's kind of on you and you can't cry wolf to say that it's a safety issue if it can be fixed. But yes, it's quite interesting that Alonso was the one driver to say. As nothing wrong here. And this would be totally speculating and perfect thing to ask him for Canada. But given he is the driver with the most experience in other categories in another cars, we've been in wax, been an IndyCar, isn't it the only 500 dacre, he's been in a rally car..

"Let's get back to the pod. Let's talk Ferrari. So afterwards, you're speaking to the drivers this year so far. Carlos Sainz has been a bit down and that's understandable because he knows he's in a potentially championship winning car, Charles Leclerc, obviously he's had some fantastic results so far this year. What will the drivers like at Ferrari knowing it could have been a one two? And it was the second and third steps on the podium today. Science was, I think, shattered is the best word for him. He was very drained. He hurt his neck in that impact with the wall the other day. And also he alluded to a lack of race fitness because obviously his last two Grand Prix outings ended not far not long after the lights went out. So he just doesn't have that race fitness. So he was kind of clinging on in that race. Charles seemed a little bit more chipper. I think Charles accepted that he had extracted the maximum out of almost out of today in a way that he didn't at imola. So I would say he was quite sanguine about the whole proceedings while obviously not being overjoyed at finishing second. So there was an undercurrent of frustration there, but Charles wasn't miserable. I think Carlos relieved to have got a score in the book, but just a very, very tired man. Right, let's talk Mercedes then 5th and 6th today, Russell and Hamilton. So Russell made the strategy of starting on the hard tyres and going really long work particularly well. We even heard on the team radio fee they paid up played a bit of the conversation between him and the pit wall saying, look, let's just that the pace is okay. Let's wait until there might be a safety car later in the race, maybe some rain was going to arrive. They didn't know, but it was a calculated risk, a calculated gamble, of course it did pay off with that late collision between Norris and gasly, which meant that they got a bit of a cheap stop underneath at the time it was VSC virtual safety car. And of course, they didn't pit Hamilton though. So when had that last was 11 lap dash was it at the end, of course it was kind of a foregone conclusion. Again, safety car Lewis Hamilton, car behind on fresher tyres that he was Russell was going to get him. He did, but passed off track had to give it back and then do it again, which meant that he lost time and couldn't really attack any further places, but will Mercedes be pretty happy today with 5th and 6th. Could they have done any better? They certainly could have done a little bit worse. What do you reckon? It's a good hall of.

"Because it's going to be very, very difficult to overtake. So ammunition for the cynics, but yet lessons for the next few years. Indeed, the trouble with Carlos Sainz was saying was that he might not seem very, very many sort of late breaking late on the brakes, lunges, which looks like a spectacular but also encourage overtaking just because of a lack of grip, especially off. We saw that in the W series race and the push Super Cup. And I know we're not exactly comparing apples with apples there because they're very different cars, but anyone who ventured did not gain. Indeed, and obviously the W series racer interacted by red flags, there was a crash, nothing else can be my prediction, I reckon turn one that could be quite the pile up. I've got a prediction. I've got another prediction, and that is the prediction that the people who are on the book themselves seats on the I think it's the 9 30 BA A380 on Sunday Night. Going to be suffering some very sort of squeaky bum moments whenever there's a red flag. Perhaps a good thing we're going back on the Monday via Madrid. Yes. Tap us for breakfast. Indeed, actually, I once spent a Valentine's Day at that airport with a former colleague. It was not romantic. Anyway, there we go. We should wrap up the podcast. I also said race predictions for the race tomorrow. We knew the listeners will be listening to it on race day because of how time works you're very far ahead of us here in Miami. Anyway, Stephen Hawking moment there explaining how time works. Well, you know, sometimes I even I still am fascinated by it and failed to understand how it works. Thank you very much. Let's go and have dinner. Thank you to the listeners. Enjoy the podcast. Enjoy the race tomorrow.

"Like Carlos Sainz, I think, has been one of those people who's jumped from team to team and just very quickly picked up what it is that they are that he's handling. So yeah, it's still not looking rosy for him. I think the point was that he probably would have wanted to come into the season and had a bit more of a chance at getting the results that he was starting to at the end of last season, but the McLaren just isn't in where any of them want. I think Lando coming home in the points at least was a good finish for them. And obviously just missed out on a spot in front of ocon. That's something at least to come home with slightly optimistic, but yeah, there's not really much to say from my partners. There's not really much to say about Ricardo. I think he was, it is what it is. The one just very clearly the one good thing for Ricardo is that it's not like last year, this stage last year where Norris was getting the really high price results. Now, I was he's not going to be able to do that because McLaren doesn't have the car that's capable. But it's not like Norris is in a different stratosphere. If Bottas Alonso don't retire and Magnussen and Hamilton are able to pit when they want, I don't think Norris is in the points. So it's not like they're in a different class, but the reason why Ricardo shouldn't get a pass what happened last year is exactly who you just named Carlos Sainz Jr. also changed teams and didn't struggle at all. That's an interesting factor there. Yeah, should gasly was 8th just behind Landon Norris and he sent me another driver. Something that came out after the race, he was in intense pain for the last 15 laps. He said the last ten laps in particular were almost excruciating and his mechanics actually had to help him out of the car. Once he'd stopped in park for may, he said he had a stabbing pain in his intestines. That it got worse every time we turn left, it got worse. So obviously hoping because that sounds like appendicitis to me. So really hoping that it's I wonder whether it might be extreme dehydration or something, something that's just not gone right, but yeah, oh God that didn't sound comfortable. So for him to have actually done somewhere, there's a lot of medical support as everyone knows that at any Formula One round and so he's got the best people around him to work out what's going on there and hopefully it's something that he can as you say like a dehydration or something issue that's nothing more and more serious. Looking at the drivers championship, Charlotte Clare leading with 45 points Carlos Sainz with 33 points. Max Verstappen in third, getting obviously his first points of the year on the board with 25 points. George Russell is fourth on 22 and Lewis Hamilton somehow in 5th with 16 points but already that gap starting. Another funny moment was the fact that Lewis had to ask if you got a point for tenth. He's so not used to finishing in those positions. He's like, do we even get a point? Can't be true. So Bono, Bono came on and told him he was tenth, and Lewis was like, do we even get a point for that? Here we go. I've come full circle now. Sorry, I don't believe for a second that Lewis had within doesn't know that rule. I think that he's well and truly he's making a point. He's making a point there. He's just gone, oh, I love it. Now I've come back. I'm a city on the city called miserable one again now. Hey, you're heading off to Melbourne in two weeks in time well in the weeks time you're getting on the plane to go. The other side of the world for us at least, and it's been a couple of years, obviously. For listeners of the auto sport podcast, who are new and I can see the download figures they're growing all the time. So we know we have some new listeners that are new to auto sport and listening to us just fill them in and fill everyone in really on what it was like for you. So two years ago, you land the role of Grand Prix editor for auto sport, a role has been held by some legendary journalists over the years and that is your first mission. That's your first race, right? So take it away from there. Yeah, so I got my dream job and then the world ended is the short version. Obviously not permanently. Thankfully. But yeah, I had a great start to 2020 I was covering formula E at the time. And we knew, obviously, there have been a fair amount of stuff change going into that year. And I knew what my role was going to be from quite early on in that January. So I went to Santiago for my last formula erase. With Matthew, who's now actually, as I'm sure you can, we've said earlier on other podcasts about Matt joining the F one team. For this year, he came with me because he took over from Marie. So we had a lovely holiday, and at the time we were also because he's so far to go. I was like, we're going to the other side of the world. It's like a 15 hour flight. We're having a whole day after this. Do you want to come back? He was like, yeah, great, sounds excellent. Because that's sort of nice guy that he is. And we were filing random stories about this coronavirus thing and how it was threatening to cancel formula E races and there were things in China. That sounds a bit inconvenient. And then obviously, as everybody knows what a massive massive impact to having all of our lives. But yeah, it was a bit, it was a bit tough, just I went all the way to Australia to do my dream job and it was quite hard not knowing when we came back, what would happen as we all know, to support magazine, had to pause for a little while. Everything was so uncertain, would Formula One itself survive. Because of the broadcast contracts in 2020, it was able to carry on, but I was a little bit. I don't know about anybody else, but I spent lockdown and for myself, so I spent the first lockdown totally solo, so I was kind of a little bit of a prisoner with my own thoughts of as it can happen. But it did, and I'm very fortunate and very privileged that it did. So yeah, I'm just really looking forward to getting to Melbourne, taking that little personal personal box. Just to say, yeah, I finally seen a Melbourne race because what a great city it is. I was very fortunate to have a couple of days instead of going on to Bahrain as the plan would have been to see that race before I came home. Obviously at that time, everybody didn't think that the lockdowns were going to last as long as they did, and it Melbourne in particular. I know what they had the world's longest lockdowns is really, really hard time for that city. So I think everybody's just look forward to the Australian Grand Prix having to see me a great spectacle. Unfortunately, the home driver, as we've said, isn't going to be in win contention. But just.

"Auto sport dot com and also spot magazine, I'm Luke Smith, and this is the auto sport podcast. The first Formula One qualifying session of the season is in the books and it is Charles Leclerc who will start on pole position for tomorrow's Bahrain Grand Prix. The clerk defeated Max Verstappen and teammate Carlos Sainz Jr. in a tight end qualifying at the sakhir circuit and Mercedes couldn't get close to the leading drivers leaving Lewis Hamilton and George Russell with work to do as they head into tomorrow's race. Recapping a very busy day of news off track and lots of excitement on track. I'm joined by all sports Grand Prix editor Alex caloris. You said we talked on the way back in the car bats of how our days had been and things like that. And you said it's been a really good day for you. A lot of that was because of just how good a result this was for Formula One. Yeah, I had a very enjoyable day. It started off with I elected not to go to the media karting, which I know you enjoyed, Luke at the Bahrain cutting track. We won't talk about the result. It's fine, it's fine. It's going to die on my single world championship point in Alpine's competition from the other night still. Fair enough. And well done to you for that. Much more sarcastic. Sorry. I was just trying to say good, oh, yes, it's because whilst you were karting, I had a nice Lion, got in my plans for P three, which I was very lucky to get a pit lane tabard, don't normally get that, so there are only available if there are spare ones for the journalists to go in. So I went in, I had a nice time studying the sun outside the Mercedes garage for a feature that I'm going to do for a little sidebar feature. Addition to the race report for this week's auto sport magazine. And yeah, it was just great being able to watch that sort of stuff up close. I'm not sure if it came through in any of the TV feeds, but at one point George Russell actually hopped out of his car, took his shoe off because there was a problem with it or something in it or something, which I thought you know, nice little detail, never would have seen otherwise, but yes, you're quite right. Then it got into qualifying, which was an amazing session. It sort of feels particularly good because we've spent the last week and a half here watching testing where everybody constantly goes on them all these times and meaningless since the usual blah blah blah phrases. Now something really proper has happened. And as you say, it's a great result for Formula One. It's a great result for people who are interested in news stories and interesting things happening because I honestly came into the day fully expecting Max Verstappen to put it on poll and as we'll come to later walk off into the distance and win the race. The fact that Charles Leclerc is starting on pole, max's second, Carlos Santi's third, Sergei Perez, is again a way off the pace in fourth, means we have a really, really interesting race in our hands. So yeah, I'm very chuffed. Right the way through preseason we'd seen from Ferrari this kind of serenity. They all seem pretty confident, but I've seen quite chirpy even at points. And I think that there was all this talk about what Ferrari could do. Then we saw in fpt they went for SAP and put in that lap. We thought, it's maybe not going to happen that Ferrari are going to be a step behind. Come qualifying though, Carlos Sainz Jr. said he felt very far behind Charles Leclerc right the way through the weekend made a big step forward took provision on Paul and then that final battle for poll what 1.129 seconds in it between the three of them really, really close. Alex, I mean, the Ferrari hype train and I've talked about it a lot. I know, but how much confidence can Ferrari take from this result? They had a poll in Baku and Monaco last year. But this one feels a little bit different, I think. Oh, absolutely. I mean, I think the key thing here is the engine gains. I think there's one team principle this evening is already said the Ferrari engine is now the best in Formula One and there is complete evidence of that because Valtteri Bottas is 6th in the Alfa Romeo and Kevin Magnussen is 7th and a half, and those are the Ferrari customer teams that were last and second to last last year and obviously in the Claire pointed this out to me in the press conference. They have made their own games with their chassis designs in 2022 and of course it's the big rules reset, but there have been no massive steps forward at other squads. The order apart from Mercedes going backwards is still relatively how it was in 2021. So what's the big difference? The engine. So it's a fantastic performance from Ferrari's engine department, something that science was keen to praise the cleve as well. But interestingly, both Red Bulls still top the speed trap and it's obviously shows you how we know the drag levels, the very the way the energy is deployed through the hybrid systems that's going to impact things, but they just know that that Red Bull is really really, really slippery, really, really wrap it in a straight line as well. So yeah, it's not going to give Ferrari total domination, but it's enough to put them in the fight. Now I think there's a few things that's interesting. I think Verstappen and Red Bull probably underperformed. He talks about making changes in Q three and it all went awry because it looked very, very good for Verstappen in Q two. But leclerc equally was saying that that wasn't a smooth session he said he wasn't happy with his driving that there were mistakes. I think he even said at one point that you need to dropped it at turn 7 on his earnings final app that got in poll. Science as well equally should probably be kicking himself a little bit if that middle sector have been stronger as you say leak it's such a tiny margin. Our first career poll could have been there. But it's definitely great to see Ferrari in the hunt. As I know we're going to come to I am skeptical about whether they can win the race tomorrow, although we have a certain prediction or prediction is the right word for the race start. Anyway, let's come to that later. No, let's come back now, I think. I think with Red Bull, you said that Verstappen and Red Bull might be underperformed a little bit today. You mentioned Sergio Pérez earlier as well. He's going to be starting forth, but he was never really in the poll fight. What did Verstappen have to say about his session afterwards? I mean, how do you sort of explain what areas have he touched on, did they underperform? And what from your analysis.

"And I think that with max, we didn't get any of that. And right the way through the season, it is really just left to Horner and we have sort of bits from max in terms of life. They managed to catch a chap between him and Horner. But there's no vulnerability and there's nothing really sort of lifting the lid on max really in his first title fight, which is, I think, yeah, big miss for the series. And that is made only more obvious by, as you said, the fact that Lewis is so vulnerable and even Silverstone when he's obviously excited to see all the fans back, but he's like, well, there's a lot of people like how far back are they going to be and so worried about catching COVID and he really opens up about the Bahrain racist when he got cork over and he said it was one of the worst things I've ever been through. So I think that the fact that we don't have max to lend his voice to that and be a balance to Lewis, I think is, yeah, it's a big shame. And I think that really moving forward. I think obviously the big question is, are any other drivers going to do the same thing? We know in season one that missing Mercedes and Ferrari, that was a shame, but we got through it. But the fact is as you said in the intro, this was the first season to drive survive that had like a title fight that it could really hype up and handle. And yet we don't hear from one of the championship fighters, which is a big shame. Now and the driver champion. So yeah. Exactly. That's more pertinent. But you mentioned if other drivers might also follow suit. One of the criticisms last year was how may be out of proportion certain rivalries were blown in previous seasons. And this year, it seems that Netflix have turned their attention back once again on Lando Norris and his teammate, but apart from it not being Carlos Sainz this year is Daniel Ricciardo. Why is he with Lando? Why is he becoming? 'cause I guess my fear is if he sees this again and actually I guess sunny ironically, one of the moments that was called up within drive to survive this season was a quote of his getting taken out of context and made a big deal out of in terms of him not having sympathy for Daniel, maybe not getting up to speed as quickly. But is there a fear that maybe he'll go? Do you know what guys like enough's enough? Like, why do you keep making a big deal out of this? Or is it more of a fair assumption of what happened last season in this series? I think there is a bit of it does push it to the limit a little bit in places. And I think that the fact is obviously Daniel Ricciardo has been such a big part of Netflix right away from season one. So he was obviously going to be such a big character and a focus point after his move three season four. But that episode, yeah, I mean, I think it's very good in terms of highlighting that Lando was the young guy. He's already excelling and at the same time, Daniel, who's meant to be world champion material, has had a really bad start, a Monaco obviously being the real nadir where Lando managed to lap, Daniel. But I think they can be better in terms of sort of like I'm picking all of the same sounding a little why are these struggles coming from and what the challenges you face. And I mean, I had an interview with him at the end of last year and he was fantastic covering all of that. And I think that, yeah, you mentioned sort of quite been taken out of context and there's a scene sort of around some quotes that Lando is given. And I was thinking, I can't remember, I was writing a story about that. And I can't find the quotes anywhere on auto sport. I did a Google and yeah, I just thought it was interesting where that headline came from. And I think that, again, it is a case of that you kind of find things to fit the narrative you want as opposed to saying, well, what is the actual narrative here? And I mean, obviously, yeah, Daniel's struggles were real, real focus point. But I think that, again, similar to Carlos and Lando in the previous season, it was kind of made out to be more than it actually was. And I don't think it was like, it wasn't like crazy blown out proportion, but it was just interesting that again they sort of like pushed that a little bit and kind of looked for a bit of drama where there may be wasn't. And I think that with Valtteri Bottas and George Russell as well, I think that obviously imola was such a big moment in terms of their narrative and that is handled really well in terms of the crash itself. I think that the footage in the production and the editing is absolutely bang on for that. But again, you hear all of the radio traffic and George going over to the car and everything. But then it's afterwards that you don't, you don't hear sort of okay, but George actually a week later was like, I've reached out to file to read sort of like patch things up because I kind of realized that, yeah, I sort of look at it differently. You don't get that full stories. So yeah, it's interesting. And I think that it is just a question of drivers will be looking at it and go, well, how do I come across in this? And I think that philander, I think he comes across quite well through the season. I think that, yeah, it does highlight his real successful points earlier on in the very nicely, Russia disappointingly.

"That then there's going to be tremendous push back What's going to happen with the omarova professor O'Malley nomination To be determined if you saw the confirmation hearing you heard Democrat senators expressing serious reservations I'm quite confident there would be no Republican support for her confirmation And it would take only one democratic senator to cause her nomination to fail So we don't know yet But I'm hopeful that The White House will reconsider and come up with another nominee You've decided you don't want to serve another term You're going to slow it down You've paid your dues and you stepped down And some people are getting interested in that seat It turns out Doctor Oz is interested The reports that Dave McCormick Bridgewater has said now he's going to decide within the next few weeks where he runs as well Somebody who has served in the government before Do you have any sense about who it should be If it's a Republican No I haven't taken sides in this We also have candidates who have been in the race for a while Carlos Sainz and Jeff bartos for instance Look I think the way this is shaping up is that Republicans have an embarrassment of riches We have some terrifically qualified enormously capable very impressive people And that probably leads to a really robust primary and I have no idea how that turns out at this point But I'm pretty confident I'm feeling pretty good about the prospects that whoever emerges from this competitive primer what I expect to be a competitive primary who will be a really good general election candidate and will hold the seat And what will that take in Pennsylvania because Pennsylvania is I don't think of it as a blue state or a red state particularly It could be up for grad What would it take to have a Republican prevail rather than Democrat So I think what is going to take certainly you've got to appeal to suburban voters Those are the swing voters right In the core of our cities the Democrats are going to do well in the rural areas Republicans are going to do well And the suburbs are the swing votes So you have to have a message that appeals to suburban voters And I think it's very the environment we're in right now There is a very very widespread backlash against what I think is a tremendous overreach on the part of this administration and the Democrats in Congress So I think suburban voters are very receptive to a Republican message Someone who can appeal to them is going to win Pennsylvania Senator it's really great to have you here with us in New York I hope you have a good holiday pat toomey from Pennsylvania.

"Mercedes is frankly very very boring. I don't want to do that and it's a perfect storm red will because Mercedes got hit hard by regulations less downforce. No Das their cars been struggling. I saw Lewis Hamilton spin out a couple of times in Winter testing. And Red Bull has a great car there most competitive car. They've had it a long time in comparison to Mercedes. They got speed they got reliability and on top of that incredible added a legit number two driver checo Perez. So I think that this is the year Red Bull finally takes the crown from Mercedes and wins themselves a world championship take reclaim that thrown back from Mercedes. Now there's a Red Bull finish. Number one Mercedes will finish number two. I have McLaren finishing third in F1. Once again. The car is better their driver life better. Do you have Lando Norris going into your three? You have Daniel ricciardo is an upgrade on Carlos Sainz their driver from last year and I think frankly also Aston Martins going to have some engine trouble that engine truck last year that engine trouble in Winter testing. So I think fourth place is gonna come down to either Aston Martin or Alpine racing. I give the edge to Aston Martin because they focused heavily on improving their car and development in the offseason. Whereas Alpine focused a lot more on 2022 for next year getting ready for two years from now. It's kind of a standby you for helping both teams are kind of oddly similar where they've got new drivers who have previously won a World Championship. They've got a new team name a new livery kind of brand new everything but in the end, I think Aston Martin will be quicker. So I think Aston Martin is going to be forth and form of the one they're going to beat out Dean. But really the question is can Aston Martin be reliable will there engine work because again, I said it before I'll say it again. It doesn't matter how fast you are if your car isn't running so reliability is very very key for Aston Martin this year in 2021. I believe.

"Like your body temperature is insane and people don't realize about that like even in a hot day when it's 90° outside you're driving that one car the temperatures like 30 degrees hotter in the car when you're driving. It's terrified, especially on the track and I guess here's the thing about the replay should they show the replay was it insensitive to the cross the line off if Romain grosjean had died. then yes absolutely it would have been insensitive you shouldn't show that but in this case because he lived it's okay to show to some degree and then also I think it's important to show the replay I think there's actually some a deep importance where you have to remind people how dangerous F1 is and they have one actually almost has a responsibility to remind people that it's a dangerous sport and I understand why F1 drivers people like Sebastian Vettel and off and on Norris Carlos Sainz they don't like seeing that it's horrifying if I was an F1 driver like I don't want to watch that crash I don't need to see it again I don't want to see that because that could have been them and it's it's unsettling to see that like that could have been me in that burning Hulk a metal I mean I understand why an F1 driver goes I don't want to watch that and you shouldn't have shown that But the FAA and form of the one I also think I have a responsibility where it's important to be honest and transparent about how dangerous it is. I mean driving a car incredibly fast, whether it's it's they kind of set the example for the world and what it's like to drive the car and it's dangerous not everybody can do it and not only that it's not only is a dangerous also a lot of physical activities of driving to I try to push on the brake pedal an F1 car. It's unbelievable how hard it is? And so I guess I'm glad romack grosjean is okay. Thank goodness. But I also think again f one has them on stability to be transparent and honest about the dangers of F1 and part of that is showing the replay it's burned into my mind forever that image of romantic Roshan getting out I will never I never did but I never would anyway, especially because of this moment take for granted what an F1 driver does the risk they take and the danger and the difficulty of what they do. And so that replay does definitely get that place. Cross now..

I couldn't help but feel bad for Carlos Sainz because by leaving McLaren and going to Ferrari. He's absolutely downgrading next year. It's really bizarre and it's really sad. I mean like, oh dude, Carlos, you're going to a bad team man. Hate to break it to you. You poor soul. Ferrari has been awful and even weirder they refused to fire Mattia but not so they've talked about a Ferrari the owner. I guess somebody gave a quote one of the executives Ferraris saying we're going to keep my TV but not so we want to have continuity. We're tired of people getting fired so quickly and I get the the the tension there right you want to you don't want to be so quick to pull the trigger and fire people but material notes though.

We've got Carlos Sainz. He really does have a point to prove it a he is a very good driver Safar as United in my estimate. The aim is to Mason is a very good driver. But there have been times when he con maybe hasn't performed as expected to their that how it has been occasionally disappointing site really that this this is his opportunity to make his Mark and also land Norris as well comes in very highly rated, but you have to say that formula to last year after a ready ready megastars he conned lost a little baby didn't always perform one in qualifying. So he's also got a point prove the team themselves. Does have a point previous much of themselves that they can still design grand prix winning cars because I've been in the doldrums for most of this decade now, and it's been quite a shabby embarrassment filled past few seasons for them.
