"Week's episode. We can't wrap this Hungarian Grand Prix review up without talking about the Hungarian Grand Prix. Fortunately though, there are two main topics from this one. One, Max Verstappen, one hand on the title. Now, we already talked about it being decided after France, blown out to 80 points. That means he can finish second for the rest of the year, or if he wins the next 5 races, he'll win the title in Japan. So Ferrari have gone. Okay, we now remember how to build fast cars. So we've got that damn pat. But in terms of it's like the old Jerry, it's like that Seinfeld thing. You're happy to take the reservation. You just don't know how to fold. The reservation. So you can design these very fast cars, but you don't know what to do with it. Big Carlos. Even when the drive is going, are you sure real? What are you doing? So yeah, Ferrari just haven't quite worked that point out yet. And I remember I gave Ferrari the benefit of the debt last week when you said that just not ready to win the title yet they're close, but they're not ready. I'm like, surely they could turn it around. This was it. This was it. This is where they use another Australian expression. This is where they shoot the bed. Oh, yes. Because this like I had done. They can't come back. Because making all these errors. And to the point where, yeah, if the drivers narrow where the errors are and it's frustrating to them. It's disappointing because it's not every day you get a Ferrari. That good. It's very cool. It was a faster car on the weekend. It was one of the Grand Prix Max Verstappen spun out of the lathe by some mysterious gust of wind. And still manages to overtake the was it both Ferraris in the entity? Well, you only had to overtake with Claire on the track. I think I'm pretty sure. Science was in the pit stops. Yeah, so there was an era and he still recovered from it. And Ferrari was supposed to be the quicker car on the way. He started tenth. Is that a tenth? Yeah, so yeah, they're done. It's really bad. They're closer now to Mercedes in the standings than the other Red Bull. So the 97, I think, behind Red Bull. 30 ahead of Mercedes. 30 points. Charles Leclerc is 80 points behind Verstappen as we said. He's only 20 ahead of George Russell. He has to win a Grand Prix in his life. He's 20 points behind Charlotte Clare, which I say. Are we willing to say, I think I might be willing to say, I hope Ferrari comes back stronger after the break, but on the other hand, you know, since it would be wasted because they're not going to win the championship. No. I think Mercedes will not only beat them to second in the constructor standings. I think at least one Mercedes driver is going to finish your head of Charles Leclerc. Mercedes driver, they might not even win a race and still do it. Could George Russell become the first world champion to win a world championship without. Just purely by just turning just by turning up. Just my favorite champion. The stealth champion. Yes, great nickname. I'd love to say it. Not a fan of the behavior last year, but I actually would love to say it. It's completely different now. Well, it's not completely different now, but it's a bit different now. With George Russell, he's nice. People like him. Yeah. It is staggering to think that he has a more of an outside chance than shot look low. Does it this stage? It is, do you remember the aisle never forget? I was walking out of the Australian Grand Prix with a colleague. And everyone was talking about this. So it's not even a unique story. David Croft is not interesting story. But we're walking out wondering when Ferrari was going to how early they were going to wrap up the title. Dominated in Australia. But clay was 43, 43 points. 43 points up in the standings after three rounds. He's now 80 behind. Yeah, 80 behind. It's a 123 point ship to Verstappen. It only ten rounds. That's more than ten around. Yeah, you know it's bad when it's right digits. That's frustrating. It's to go. Yeah. I tell you what. On right uno on Ferrari 360. Toronto and Roberto. Instead of the third is like the Peter oven.

"You want to listen to bucks of neutrals? Well, how about you fill out this form? You la one. Another ice, another Max Verstappen victory. It's just. When do we start to think that this season's in trouble, rob? Well, it's now very much the, it's like that Simpson's main where Homer comes out of the bushes and last time it was just we wanted Lewis Hamilton sort of to start faltering at the hurdles. But now it's Max Verstappen. It's like, okay, time for someone else to have a go. Or even Carlos to have a crack his domination because it's now, yeah, be careful what you wish for. This is we're currently in a majority Red Bull government. And Max Verstappen is winning all of the states at the moment. And that's not fun for anybody. It's nice as that was last year. In classic tall poppy F one syndrome style, we just want to pay them back a little bit, and have someone else have a go. So we can build them up and destroy them. That's all fans want. We just want blood. Every other season, not every seat. Just every other season. This was Max Verstappen's 5th from 6th rice wine. It's Red Bull 16 a row. Now, of course, I famously, of course, at the very start, admitted I've been very honest with the interesting frame for this. For me this week in the time zone was just not good for me. So I was also a good FP two was at 7 a.m. that was all right. Exactly. That's mess for you at home, kind of. Behavior at 7 a.m. on a weekend. When you really got nothing else. Really nothing else. Rage is finished programming and where the watch sort of Hungarian news on SBS. You've done looking for fish for the fish show. Fish tank. Fish tag. Say what baby he has to say. He's like Bosch. I could tell from the little bit of footage I overheard. I overheard people talking about pain. I overheard. Commentary, I didn't go out of my way to look for it. It's actually my dedication to my cause. It's not watching single frame of the Canadian Grand Prix. Was I could tell it was the end of the race because across these doing his sort of his winding up. He sort of wrapping up his jacket on, he's got a timeout for the 7 news. News is very important. I wonder if news is as important, clearly not on Sky Sports, because he's very important on Skype. He's all the baby say that. All the news is coming up. We've got a time. Again, another one for the box of neutrals Discord for all. What's this confusing Australian reference? This obsession with the news. Literally revolves her timing out to the news. Because we just have to find that. It has to be dead on 6 o'clock. It's all padding. It's all filler content. It's already been used at 4 o'clock. 8 or something like that. I don't know, whatever. But it's crafty was winding up and I can tell. It's just even the enthusiasm in his voice just wasn't quite there. And I'm extra stuffing. Get in there. You know, that kind of thing. Yeah, even he was struggling to really get the enthusiasm because now it's coming Max Verstappen season again, he's very much kind of in the box 8 as things then, you know, a 175 points to Sergio Pérez is one 29. If we do the whipper in there, one 26 Charles Leclerc, so not too far off that front, but it's enough it's gone. Isn't it? Nearly three rice wings with a head of an advantage for him. So max is sitting pretty at the moment. And these races are getting few and far between. They try to catch up after the Monaco curves. It's sad. I think it's a bit sad. Because not only, I don't know, maybe okay, maybe I purchased from a different direction. Maybe it's not that sad because Ferrari had a faster car this weekend. I think the Ferrari car was faster this weekend. But just the way the weekend panned out, maxed up and had a great pole position in the web, and then Carlos Sainz, I love the guy. Just lacks, I think, 1% at the moment or sorry to Charles Leclerc like didn't, I feel like if Charles Leclerc would if the position is reversed, I think Charlotte clay would have passed for Stefan or would have crashed strong. Interesting. Right. I think. But I think Carlos signs, he did look very comfortable. I've got to admit he was very close to the walls throughout the weekend. Confident driver does. But I do also feel like almost maybe he's too sensible. Maybe Charles Leclerc sometimes he just, you know, maybe he goes a little bit too much. He goes a 101%. Carlos size is very a 100%. Yeah, well, with my objective view of the Grand Prix having not seen this, I'm therefore very qualified in my opinions for this Grand Prix, but save your home. I have footage. But for Carlos Sainz, for me, I feel like for a man who has crashed ass and has had all these other wobbles in between. This Grand Prix. I feel like he needed a result like this. I mean, I know it's not the Winnie's perilously close. To getting there, I think, one day, it's just, he needed to, I think, rebuild his stocks and his confidence a little bit to be in that position again because you're only as good as your last race and for Daniel Ricciardo. He's still probably riding the Italian Grand Prix little bit. Tim's credit. It's wearing theme. And so for Carlos, he needs a result in the bag to go. I can build on this because let's face it. He's not in championship contention this year. Yeah, a hundred and outsider, but it's very much a Charles Leclerc presidential candidate, shall we say for Ferrari this season? So for Carlos, he needs to step up as Sergio Pérez, play that number two sort of role at the minute. So it says you're proof. Number two is still not solidified. It could sneak in. Save his own home, but for Carlos, he needs to step up and needs to play the team game and knows he needs to be defensive offside for well now the red balls into a lesser extent the Mercedes. So a result like this I think was good for Carlos. It wasn't quite but I feel like a couple more results like that than the wind is very close. Interesting that you say that it was close to the wall because I would have thought he would have just taken it a little bit easier, not made any silly mistakes because he needed a result like this. Yes, I completely agree. I think that's a good call. He did need a solid result and one where I think you could say he probably got the maximum from it. Even if he didn't make any lunges, but it is a very hard track to be fair to him actually to do a sort of ambitious lunch because there's not a lot of run off a lot of walls. So in that sense, I think actually probably got the most out of it. Had luck on a little bit his way, he might have been positions reversed at the end of the race and he would have been defending, maybe he could have pulled that one off, would have been a very good win..

"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..

"Abode where I think we're going to aim once we've finished all our work for stuff we've still got to do, watch a bit of the Champions League Final. We used to support him by the way. Oh no, I've got a route for Real Madrid because I'm a man united fan, so see Liverpool. And I know that our overall company president is a massive Liverpool fan and I said to him yes to how you nerves and he was like oh no I like depends on the midfield. But I reminded him that Liverpool have always won. They've won 6 Champions League titles or European cups. Always against the team playing in white. So that bodes very well for Real Madrid playing in white tonight. Alex, who are you supporting being the big football aficionado that you are? Yeah, I mean, yeah, famously I don't care for football disparage it whenever I can to be honest, not because it's a bad sport or anything just to find it a little bit a little bit boring, but yeah, I do enjoy a good big sporting occasions. I'm going to be cheering for Liverpool because I think Jürgen Klopp is a great manager. It comes across very well. I mean, I have no idea what it is about him. Football technically wise that made some good, but he comes across very, very well. With all these positions on life and I appreciate that. Anyway, we've got massively sidetracked from our Formula One podcast. But kind of remember where that point started, you know, actually. It's because we escaped the traffic jam and we finally heading, heading, heading out. But yeah, we're talking about McLaren and Daniel Ricciardo. Yes, that was it. I was up at mason a watching watching FP three with codders. And Carter said, you know, it's interesting that Zac Brown and McLaren are coming out and making these public statements about Ricardo in the media. And they're not doing it by accident. It's obviously got to be part of some sort of tactics cottage used the expression is that a carrot to try and get into perform better and really got to look at it as it's a stick to beat them with surely. That's what they're just trying to really, really inject some sort of fierce reaction from them. So it'd be interesting to see how we respond, but I mean, even with rain and a chaotic race from 14, it's hard to see him doing anything particularly special tomorrow. So he's got to hope Baku is where the next fight back begins. And for the football fans listening to this, I have Googled it. And the status that every time live for one European Cup or Champions League has been against the site in white. So although there was that defeat a couple of years ago, two Real Madrid, that does tie in with that statistic. But of course as college is calling it the champignon final is not the major sporting event this weekend. It is, of course, the Monaco Grand Prix. Charles Leclerc is not only aiming to win the Monaco Grand Prix for the first time, but finish a race in Monaco for the very first time. He's at Owen 5 at the moment, two formula two races and three Formula One races. Obviously one of them, he didn't even start let alone finish, so it's not been a very happy hunting ground for him, but Alex is tomorrow the day that I know, I know you don't believe in curses, but it's more of the day Charles Leclerc does finally taste success in Monaco. There's no reason why he shouldn't win bear in mind he's starting on pole and he's got his teammate alongside him. And we know how critical that is at Monaco. But yeah, as much as steepest dish in his nonsense, things do seem to happen to leclerc, whether he makes a mistake or something goes wrong as it breaks, because it don't have, doesn't happen because we hope that with all drivers down there's no sort of you celebrate or enjoy a particular team doing badly. These drivers are all brilliant and all the teams are tremendous. So it's unfortunate when these things happen. But you can't be ruled out. So that being said, just going back to the first point, starts on Paul's team at alongside him. He should win it. If it's dry, if it's wet, he actually said he doesn't think he's ever driven a racing car in the wet. And definitely the formula two races in 2017 were dry. But so yeah, that could be an interesting challenge for him, but as you said Ferrari's car is performing better in the wet than it has the last couple of years. He was pleased with how things were going at imola when it was where earlier on in the season. So hopefully for his point of view, he's got all he needs to cope with whatever, whatever the Monaco curse or whatever Monaco itself throws out. He may not be superstitious, but quote Michael Scott from The Office. I am a little stitches, so we shall see how Charlotte Clark fares tomorrow. Alex, thank you very much for joining me. Coddles, thank you for driving. Very, very quiet from Yukon as I was expecting some quips or some jokes or something from the front seat there, anything you would like to add as you keep your eyes on the road, of course. I'm physically concentrating on not hitting any passers by or people in black trucks driving like psychopaths. So I've let you.

"The reasoning being, you don't get to speak to the referees in football, which is fair enough pastry, but whatever it's always nice to get more accountability because it's all very, very important. But yeah, back to Carlos Sainz. Yeah, that's gesture that he deserved penalty or he's going to have trouble coming in his way. I think it's way off the mark because as he said in the press conference, it was as he turned right into Portia that the yellow certainly the yellow marker board lights up and I think if you watch onboard just ahead, I think the yellow flag is waving, but the fact that as he comes around the corner and he's looking at the next apex. It's all at one. He said, you know, he's certainly with the marker board. It comes on as he's already got the steering lock fully applied. So nothing he could do he saw the two things effectively at the same time, the yellow, the crashed Perez, and basically, I think science thought he could just about get through, but then he as he just agitates, just gets on that brake pad a little bit too hard, spun the car around. And yeah, caused more damage to Perez's car, he does think though that the Red Bull should be fine to raise tomorrow. That is some good news for Sergio Pérez and Red Bull, but one Red Bull driver who wasn't really a much of a factor in the poll fight was Max Verstappen. I think all weekend. It seemed like Paris just had that little bit of an edge over him. We saw that in final practice, Perez led the way there, then throughout qualifying, always seems like Paris were just a little bit of a step ahead of max. We've talked about the chemistry, and I think one of the big narratives going into this weekend has been team orders after what happened in Spain and for Red Bull, are they already putting all their eggs in one basket with Max Verstappen as though that was ever really a question anyway. But for max, knowing we've seen over the past few races it tends to be the Ferrari excel over one lap in qualifying, but then the Red Bull's race pace is so much better, but this is Monaco, you don't overtake it. It is sometimes decided on a Saturday. How much trouble really are rebel indie thing with their only third and fourth on the grid. And for max, how much for a big fight back is it going to require from P four to get up there and battle the clerk at the very front? Yes, I think he's already hoping that it's going to rain tomorrow. I think Charles Leclerc would like a nice dry race because this is we mentioned that that Monaco curse that he's got hanging over him not that curse is a really cool but you know he's just mounting circumstantial evidence with all the run of incidence he's had at home. But yeah, so Verstappen needs rain I don't think we can be under any illusions that if it were a dry race to the finished Red Bull would if they don't overtly swap the positions they'd find some way to engineer it. The risk they play there is that Perez is not an idiot. There's going to come a point where it's just going to get too much this constantly having to cede way to max despite the fact that it is clearly the Verstappen team. But anyway, let's cross that bridge when we come to it as I'm sure Red Bull would do tomorrow. But yeah, with the Ferraris and the rebels the long run pace in practice. I mean, long run pace in Monaco practice is a bit of a misdemeanor because you say Luke starting on pole position effectively wins you the race. You know, there's no reason to suspect why leclerc won't win tomorrow, but then he could say that for so many other races he's had here. So he'll have to deal with whatever the curse that doesn't exist those at him, but yeah, with what little race running was done. Ferrari looked pretty good. So many different factors and reasons why reasons why is we're overtaken by a ring in patient motorcyclist. We're still once again, it took us, I used to get out of the media car park. Leaving Monaco tonight, thanks to the F two cars they need to come back and we now stuck in another tunnel on the motorway to nice, which is where we're staying in a very nice Airbnb. It's got an excellent view over nice. But yeah, anyway, just very quickly going back to the race race, where I do have a certain slight edge, a couple of attempts a lap, but too difficult to read if that's going to definitively transfer over to tomorrow, but if science is second out of Sandoval and the clubs first, there's no way Max Verstappen is speaking, Charles Leclerc. And did the Red Bull guys they talk about why Verstappen has been slipping behind Paris this week and why is Perez managed to qualify max? Yeah, so basically Verstappen has said that effectively the Red Bulls just seem to be under steering a bit more than he would ideally like around here. And also he just wasn't happy with the balance, that sort of saps the confidence. But he finally found the balance and the feeling that he was after right at the end of Q three right on that final interrupted run and it's really interesting. If you watch the sex of times, he just said his best time of qualifying right at the point for the red flags come out. He still was a tenth down on leclerc and if the club was expecting to make the gains that he would, I still think Verstappen was fighting for second and he himself acknowledged that, but it's really interesting because he's absolutely furious when he comes across. He's the next car behind science. When he comes across the two, he's like, oh, this isn't fair. This isn't fair. And he said afterwards, you know, this really needs looking at this, you know, because he's point is as happened with leclerc, not that leclerc did it on purpose. You could secure the provisional poll as Michael Schumacher has attempted to do or did badly crash and secure yourself that pole position. So Verstappen's like we need to look at this. We need to look at this, but basically the understeer with the Red Bull. He said that Perez can just just likes it a bit more and it's helping him a lot around here whereas Verstappen, we know response a strong front end and then hang on to the rear ace is what makes him such a joy to watch because he's so exciting behind the wheel because of the way the car behaves in his hands. So yes, that's the difference to Verstappen, but as I think I do get the genuine sense he thinks that it should be him on the front row of the grid alongside alongside a cloud tomorrow. And I'm sure max will be hoping for a little bit of rain. I think I'm seeing varying percentages as to what chances we're going to get. But another person wanting some rain is Lewis Hamilton. He will start 8th on the grid. He was asked if he's going to do a rain dance, he was like, no, I don't dance. I won't be dancing. But then he said, I would actually like a bit of rain maybe to help him from PH George Russell in 6th for Mercedes..

"Welcome to our Sunday Night show analyzing all the action from the 2022 Spanish Grand Prix, which unusually for Barcelona was a pretty good race for most of its 66 laps. Max Verstappen led a Red Bull one two ahead of Sergio Pérez, but that headline takeaway barely scratches the surface of the whole event. For a long time, it looked like Ferrari's Charles Leclerc would romp to a simple win, given Verstappen and made rather a poor era on lap 9, caught out by a heavy gust of wind at turn four and he half spun into the gravel, but even before that, leclerc was gapping his title rival. But his ultimately a big disappointment for leclerc and retired from the so far undiagnosed engine problems just before the halfway point. Well, that stage, Verstappen had been frustrated in his comeback by Sterling defense from the very impressive George Russell, with his Mercedes team, looking like it has the pace to at least threaten the frontrunners thanks to its recent upgrades. Verstappen was also very annoyed with his Red Bull team, thanks to further DRS problems thwarting his attempts to pass Russell and allowing Perez to close in. That was after, of course, he had a DS DOS problem that stopped him taking part in the final ones in Q three yesterday. Anyway, that set up a Red Bull team ordered squabble as Perez's request to be allowed to attack Russell fed on deaf ears before Verstappen was switched to a three stop strategy, so he could then show his pacing clear air and not have to worry about making a DRS pass. Such as Verstappen's pace, he had actually cleared Russell when he emerged after his third stop and after that he easily caught up the Perez who had indeed quickly passed the Mercedes out of Verstappen's second stop. Red Bull ordered Perez not to fight Verstappen, which he called unfair before accepting the order and letting his team might buy to score a win that puts Verstappen into the championship league by 6 points over leclerc. Russell completed the podium to score his second trophy in Formula One and as a Mercedes driver, while elsewhere, Carlos Sainz was another spinner in the wind at turn four, where Lewis Hamilton and Kevin Magnussen clashed there on lap one with a 7 time world champion then putting in a pretty remarkably good recovery to finish 5th behind sights. That actually might have been fourth having said he's not encountered a reliability drama on both its cars within sight of the finish..

"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.

"A Vettel would later be investigated for how he got back to the pits will get on to that in a second with Jonathan noble. In FP two Alonso would top the timesheets halfway through the session, we'll work out how genuine the Alpine places with John in a second. The session was topped by Charles Leclerc, followed by Verstappen two and a half tenths down but not as it seems a bit scruffy for Verstappen to Diana's quick runs in third. We had science and Alonso in fourth. The Red Bull's Perez in 5th and Alpine's icon in 6th, the second off the pace. McLaren's finishing both in the top ten, good for Ricardo's home race, 8th and tenth, but will see what teams like has to when they start to get through the weekend. Can we get a clearer steer on how the teams are shaping up joined on the podcast today by Jonathan noble back on the Friday pods actually. John, it's always a bit difficult on a Friday now when you are at a circuit because of the, all of the crazy press Sessions which have been moved from Thursdays in the interviews into Fridays, now it's hard to get some time with you, but you are back on. Today, I'm looking at my window here in deepest darkest dorsets. It's wet and windy. Today, where you are in the South of England. The same not quite the sunshine of Australia. It's also not so windy today. But it is a bit cold, I must say, yeah, I have 23 race calendar. I mean, it's quite a drained for somebody to all of them. So it's about being kind of sensible. So I just felt that 24 hours on a plane to Australia for three days to then fly home for 24 hours after three weeks away for the tests and the first two races. More sensible to miss this one and think Luke and Luke and Alex Saudi Arabia for the same reason just spacing out have gone instead. So they're up there in the sunshine and I'm here in the cold. Hey, what do you make of the remodeled Albert park track a chicane in sector two has been removed, turned three is four meters wider. They all seem to be struggling with turn three today. You've been there before, what do you make of this new look track? The cheerio only give its verdicts on Sunday. It's obviously been designed for racing in a better racing, better overtaking. And that's a really hard thing to judge before you actually see that the cars actually racing on track. I think more intriguing and more that's a matter that's the focus of quite a lot of debate at the moment is the use of DRS in its role in Formula One. There's four DRS zones there. This weekend. And we saw in Saudi Arabia that how powerful DRS can be with these cars. And I think we've now maybe the point where I think F one needs some discussions about what is DRS therefore. When it originally came around and I quite agreed with it, it was there to make an overtaking pass that was impossible to make it possible, but not guaranteed, so it would get you into the place where if you judge the move perfectly, you can make the move getting overtaken done and we go away so races don't turn into possessions, but judging by Saudi Arabia and this is what triggered that kind of bizarre situation of Charles Leclerc and Max Verstappen, not wanting to be the first car across the dearest detection zone of that final corner. Was it guaranteed a pass basically meant if you were leading coming out of the final corner, you wouldn't be leading heading into turn one. And I don't think that's what dear I should be. It shouldn't be about making a pass automatic and easy. It should only ever be about making a pass possible. So I think that's something we need to see on Sunday. I think it's a debate that Formula One needs to have. And I think relies then on the FIA being able to better judge and move the DRS zones over a race weekend because they didn't move in Saudi and I think that could have made a better situation on Sunday. And I think if we see a race here on Sunday where Chris and Horner said today, it could be like MotoGP where we get four or 5 overtaking re passes every lap. If it turns into that, you know, maybe spectacular for the first two or three laps, but after a while, it doesn't maneuver taking part becomes irrelevant because they're swapping so much. So I think it would be an interesting race to speak about on Sunday Night about overtaking, passing and DRS. Yeah, on the Sunday pod a couple of weeks ago. I was talking to Alex and Jess about the feedback and the criticism about DRS and we see it on social media and we talk about it and our fans say, look, it's fake and what have you. And I said, look, one way to shut those people up, just take it away. And of course, and Jess fell off her seat because you're like, you can not take DRS out of Albert park. But I was being obviously a little bit flippant and saying it to get a reaction. But is that a possibility? Do you think that they could take it away completely at some races this year to see how do these cars behave without it or do you think it's going to be more of a sort of typical? The way Formula One teams work, which is iterative, they always get a little bit better. I think they just make the zones shorter and shorter and shorter or move the detection lines or what can they do to sort this out. The perfect Formula One wouldn't need DRS that it's a sticking plaster over a problem that how difficult it is for cast to pass. And I think a Formula One with no overtaking that's completely procession, like we used to have in the old days, you know, Albert park was like Barcelona where whoever led into the first corner basically was pretty much guaranteed to win the race with little tyre strategy variation. A standard one stop and zero overtaking. So that's not a good Formula One and not a formula we want to watch. We want to see overtaking and passing and cars are able to defend. So DRS should allow that possibility for overtaking light circumstances. So think it's.

"To baku twenty nine thousand nine so has gone straight on into the fiery. Yup stupid physically. He looks absolutely fine. The bad news is that he is just glowed. What was shaping up to be a very fine chance of at least a front row here. The self today by quintin nineteen was was a difficult. one say why we don't dwell on the negative. it's just. It's quite an interesting comparison rhino different stages of your career backwards to nineteen was. Okay disappointment because i knew that The poll was possible that they and i put all the efforts in the bin but on the other hand i still had the sunday comeback in monaco. The difficult part for us was that we couldn't start The race on sunday. This was very difficult. And obviously it's at home too so so that he's appointment just gets bigger so tell us about this car water strengths wise it performance a little bit up and down the strength. I think is our balance in general. I think we're doing a very good job by setting up the kinda right way to just have a good balance and this helps us in many occasions. I think that's also one of the reason why we also quick in qualifying but on the other hen. We are struggling for now to get on top of where the cow needs to be exactly to be performing at. Its best other race. And we've seen that in puerto rico. It has been a big disappointment. A big surprise obviously to be struggling so much in in in race but also we've shown that we can turn things around and then Last week in here in australia we had a very good race pace but a bit less in qualifying. So it's a fine line that we need to balance out that we haven't find the right balance yet but we are working on it and we are working well so I hope that we can find the right balance. Sounds really frustrating. It is it is frustrating. Because one race. It's one way the other races the other. But you never get the best of both worlds but it's Yeah it's part of life. I guess and we'll try to to find the right balance shall would you sacrifice the remainder of twenty twenty one. It guaranteed you being competitive in twenty two with changing regulations. Yes yes of course. I mean if he guaranteed me from the contract just in front of me telling me that if we sacrifice twenty twenty one for a competitive twenty twenty two. I'll be happy to take it but nobody has these these gravity unfortunately. So where are you pushing the team bo. More focused on twenty twenty two. And i think this is clear for for everyone i mean. Twenty twenty two will be a huge opportunity for everyone. These new cars are going to stay for many as after. That's and the we've still. We are still fighting with mclaren for the third place in the constrictors but at the end we know that's our goal is to fight for the first position very very soon and these will be from twenty twenty two onwards and this year. So i'll be happy to give up about the third place in the constructors in twenty twenty one to be fighting for the first place in twenty twenty two so british grand prix. Next yes silverstone. The home of british motorsport. That's what we call it. I love it an apology. Love about silvestre. That i've been competitive in the past. I think I like trucks. Where where i'm competitive silverstone is one of my strong trucks. But i just like the reader. My like high speed and silverstone with those cows is is just incredible. And we're gonna have a lot of fans always ferrari fans wherever you go exactly as always but he hates. It's nice to finally see that life is getting a little bit more towards a normal life like before covered. I miss it especially once. You are driving. Ferrari think you can fill it even more because very has so much support all around the world wherever we go and with govett not having the public. We didn't have as much support. Obviously we had all the people on social media that. I'm always trying to be on top off but the truck we had nobody so it's a bit. It's a bit sad. And i'm i'm really looking forward to to have backed up the kindergarten. You know you say you love high-speed how challenging is the high-speed at silverstone. Do you have to take a deep breath or these caused just so good. Anyone can go flat through cops for example. Oh well wish will try you. Try and do flat out. Is it corner. Numbers you at silverstone. When i say cops do you know each corner. I mean nine nine. that's right. I'm very body with corner number so it's like medicine say that's right but i think he's very difficult for us. To put it into words. I will love. I mean this is another dream of having my life is to try one day. I'll probably have to speak with ferrari but to do a very similar in terms of performance to a formula one and to bring people around just for them to experience what it's like to be driving so much downforce we so much. Power is just incredible. The speed are crazy jeez crazy. I don't think we are breathing in those high speeds is just crazy. Very good luck in the race. Do you go back to maranello. Between australia and silverstone or is it you going get some time out in monaco. What's the plan. Just give us an idea of your shenzhou. No i do i do go to a i will go tomorrow. It'll to Have some preparations because eat will also be the first time this year. We have a sprint race on the saturday. So we'll have to do some meetings to try and and into the exact format how we can maximize that format. You're looking forward to definitely. Yeah i mean. I think it's a good opportunity to at least try something different and i think we just need to be realistic and off once it's been done whether it added something to the weekend always was just not as great as expected which can also be the case but Yeah so. I will be in manila for that and Also a little bit of simulator to the correlation with the tracy's we've had show the correlation. I'll i don't know if everyone knows what it is. But he's basically we are getting into the simulator with the data that we have of the real key. And trying to correlate that in the best way we can just for the simulator to be as close as possible to reality and then we'll be working on the simulator for stone. Where'd you stay when you're a mariner. Is it the planet hotel. Isn't that wherever on stays on. No i actually have an apartment that i'm renting that whenever i mean milo i'm saying there is a new thing. No no no.

"Didn't. I didn't know i didn't well. How did it feel in that. Two thousand nineteen season to arrive at every race knowing that you had a chance of winning or at least a podium that bottom was not really my head's awareness winning winning only winning. But i knew we had pushing. Etf winning every races of methodist was obviously extremely strong. And probably a stronger than as. That's yeah but i. I knew that there was probably an opportunity to win any anyway so it was good. I mean it felt amazing. I mean ferrari first opportunities to win. it was very exciting. Did the success almost come to quickly not willing to quickly nervous. Who quickly leads. You appreciate it how hard it is to get to that point at the time knowing what you know now after twenty twenty and the difficult start that you had in twenty one years came quickly but i think is different ones. You live because you can see every steps you have done in your career. How they've paid off just feels a lot slower. Once you live so from the outside it might seem very quick and obviously looking back. It is very quick because in my second year design with ferrari and fighting for wins. And this is incredible. It was an incredible opportunity but on the other hand wants you live at once. You leave your career. I know so how much work i've done before. That encountering in single seater than in my first year of formula one is not always been easy. And there's also been very difficult moments but Yeah once lit you. You feel while you see two looks lower. It's interesting now. Let's talk about the two victories that year in very different circumstances i'm sort it sort of reminds you of a bad moment but of course that whole small weekend was such a rollercoaster for everybody. Let alone you with. Antoine's death in informally sell. The car wins prayed. He's what he saw when you look back at that whole can now. Would you think it's very difficult very very difficult. Because on one hand. I've lost a friend with which i've raced in karting. I can remember my first ever important traits which was a frenchman. Sheep onto one hundred. One we were we were with esteban and yes obviously on the saturday. It was a big shock once. We've all learned that has passed away and this is probably the image that all keep from this weekend. I didn't enjoy as much as i shall. Have these first win for that reason. Obviously yeah it was just a very strange weaken on one hand. Just like i've when i've lost my father in baku in formula too. I think it's always nice to just prove yourself that you can perform in those very difficult moments. The main point that. I take out of this weekend's he's just a the pain that i hide inside me as a person to to lose a friend into a father. When did you mourn the loss of your friend. Because you can't have had time with that weekend and then of course monza the following weekend did it take a while to sort of i think the week after was the the funerals and these kind of made me realize the whole thing because once you are in the heat of the moment we the racing also. Obviously you realized that you've lost a friend but on the other hand you i was trying at my best to try and think about my race to try and because i still was starting the sunday import position for race and i still had to go and try to win it so i hope to be on it so it was very difficult to preparation until the sunday and try to stay to stay focused. But i'll say the funeral. Then i i kind of accepted The loss and and try to not to forget it. I hate to say forgets but to try and and keep it in my mind but in a in a more positive way how did his staff and of course you'll be hanky before him. Change your attitude to the sport. It never really changed for me. How come. I don't know. I can't explain racing is my passion is my life. It's always been my life. I'm i'm doing that since i am Since i am three and a half years old so since i'm very very young i probably didn't know when i was three and a half years old days was century. Sports probably realized it. At be later but i knew he touched one point. Four centuries spoiled things cooled. Happen by things could happen. Obviously speaking about jewish. I've realized it thinks it and of juice but for me it was. I mean every time i'm putting my helmets milem. No other things in life can bring me such a smile for me. The relationship with the sports this is. I'm happy whenever i put a helmet. I know that there's danger but on the other hand it's what makes me happy. So they are. They are no questions for me.

"But both of them were were very very strong. So you have all of these off track interests that you share with carlos. What about said. We said. It was a little bit of a different relationship. I so him a little bit more like an older brother. I mean he had so much experience that it was different. It was not the same type of competition that i had with. We said then. What i've have with carlos with carlos we're more or less the same age we are so competitive with everything severed moisture and so he was a little bit more. Yeah he was a bit less competitive with everything. If i wanted to win something he will basically let me let me win this thing and i'll be happy and he wouldn't care with gallows. It's a little bit different. I can see. He's so soapy stuff. If i'm visiting him at anything it can be the most stupidest thing and he will be so angry and same for me but with said what you've just described is only off track right on track. He was as competitive with you as the next person right. Oh definitely definitely then once you put the helmets. There's this whole relationship eat stops. You just think about the performance you just think about trying to extract the maximum out of the car and especially bittu the guy. That has the same car as yours did he. It awkward with sabe. I'm thinking brazil. Twenty nine in particular so clan down the side of sebastian. Federal himself up into fourth place festival. We'll get trs. Tell the retro pasta county now. Five back tougher now for the tax. Cut a punch caused by. Contact with his teammate sebastian. Federal so but then we came here. Didn't we there was the break the first six months of last year. But then we came here and you guys make contact again. Turn three in australia. Ferrari's birchall contacts. Yes they did. Both ferraris try to fight over the sign peace. Can you just described that. The debrief after those incidents. How hard was it between the two of you. It wasn't that hard actually. I'm in brazil. Was probably the moment where it was quite difficult. Were right after the race on me right after the race. Obviously with the heat of the moment is not easy then. I think the thing that was more difficult to manage is how much media are coming into play and putting a little bit of of excitement in this Trying to make things exciting and trying to make to the people that they are actually tensions when there weren't so we knew there were intentions but we also asked at every races. We came whether there was attention. And and yeah i. I think we managed eat very well and the there was never any tension in between us in sure. I think it was quite straightforward. Because whenever i do mistake. I'm just putting my hand up and that's it for brazil. Had my opinion he had his opinion. So and we never really got the answer that we we both wanted so Basically stayed like this but we dealt with it very well and there was not any tensions. How's your relationship with sebastian. Changed since you've stopped being teammate. It's very similar before very similar. Before i mean we always talk whenever we see each other. We we still have discussions conversations. About how is it going for human stunt. How is it going for mean in ferrari and and yet the relationship is the same now when you look at all the guys at the front of formula one they will have a very close relationship with their boss. Unthinking lewis hamilton toto wolff. I'm thinking max for stepan christian horner. Can you just describe your relationship. With ferrari mattie been otter is going very. Well i mean matia knows me since Since a long time now. Since i am in in gp three so he's been a longtime that he sees me coming. He was not at the position. he's now at the time but that didn't matter and now to my bus fills Feels great had a very good moments together now. We are in a slightly more difficult moments. But that didn't change that. Never change our relationship. We have a very good relationship. We are very close. And and yeah. Everything's going good ego to contract with ferrari that takes you through to the end of twenty twenty four. How much of a risk was it to sign such a long term deal couple years ago now. Well i've signed with for hurry so i don't call that i mean for me. It was an incredible opportunity. As i was saying the first time. I knew i was going to be a ferrari driver. I couldn't believe it and it's a it's a dream for me for me. It was it was not a risk coming was signing for five years for the team. Always been dreaming of so. Yeah then surely. Of course we are. We are going through more difficult moments. But that's only motivates me to to push even more the team to try and and and bring it back to where it belongs. Would you be happy to spend the rest of your formula one career in red. of course i will be. Yeah but i'll be more happy if we get back to winning Because that's what matters and i know that this is what matters also for the whole team. We are pushing like crazy to try and combat a twinning. Because this is what this team is used to because it's been a rollercoaster as an i. Think back to twenty nine nine bahrain. Your fast pole position sitting that in front of me. I'm convinced you're about to win your first grand prix and then of course reliability comes into play any finished third but to hit the ground running so fast with ferrari. You must have had to pinch yourself by then. I felt incredible can remember exactly like the the greed especially i remember. It was very very very busy. There were like. I don't know like thirty photographs around me before. Getting into the car. And i was trying to put myself in my zone trying to not think about too much about the surrounding i did it but starts then came back to the leads pulled away that everything was in control and then the failure another failure but we had a problem with the engine which costs us to win. It was a difficult moment but on the other hand. I think i kind of proved to myself that i could do it. That what counted the most these day even though it was obviously difficult to lose to win. That's interesting so it's kind of a confidence thing. A breakthrough moment. In that way. I deserve to be at the top table. Yes no i. I deserve more. I can do it if i if i put everything i if i don't do any mistakes if i do the job in the car i can actually fight for victory and from that day. I knew that this was a possibility.

Because whenever i do mistake. I'm just putting my hand up and that's it for brazil. Had my opinion he had his opinion. So and we never really got the answer that we we both wanted so Basically stayed like this but we dealt with it very well and there was not any tensions. How's your relationship with sebastian. Changed since you've stopped being teammate. It's very similar before very similar. Before i mean we always talk whenever we see each other. We we still have discussions conversations about. How is it going for. He knocked on. How is it going for mean in ferrari and and yet the relationship is the same now when you look at all the guys at the front of formula one they will have a very close relationship with their boss. Unthinking lewis hamilton toto wolff. I'm thinking max for stepan christian horner. Can you just describe your relationship. With ferrari mattie been otter is going very. Well i mean matia knows me since Since a long time now. Since i am in in gp three so he's been a longtime that he sees me coming. He was not at the position. he's now at the time but that didn't matter and now to my bus fills Feels great. I mean we've had a a very good moments together now. We are in a slightly more difficult moments but that didn't change that never change our relationship. We have a very good relationship. We are very close. And and yeah. Everything's going good ego to contract with ferrari that takes you through to the end of twenty twenty four. How much of a risk was it to sign such a long term deal couple years ago now. Well i've signed with for hurry so i don't call that i mean for me. It was an incredible opportunity. As i was saying the first time. I knew i was going to be a ferrari driver. I couldn't believe it and it's a it's a dream for me for me. It was it was not a risk coming was signing for five years for the team. Always been dreaming of so. Yeah then surely. Of course we are. We are going through more difficult moments. But that's only motivates me to to push even more the team to try and and and bring it back to where it belongs. Would you be happy to spend the rest of your formula one career in red. of course i will be. Yeah but i'll be even more happy if we get back to winning Because that's what matters and i know that this is what matters also for the whole team. We are pushing like crazy to try and comeback a twinning because this is what this team is used to because it's been a rollercoaster as an i. Think back to twenty nineteen bahrain. Your fast pole position sitting that in front of me. I'm convinced you're about to win your first grand prix and then of course reliability comes into play any finish third but to hit the ground running so fast with ferrari. You must have had to pinch yourself by then. I felt incredible can remember exactly like the the greed especially i remember. It was very very very busy. There were like. I don't know like thirty photographs around me before. Getting into the car. And i was trying to put myself in my zone. Trying to not think about too much about the surrounding did it but starts then came back to the leads pulled away that everything was in control and then the failure another failure but we had a problem with the engine which costs us to win. It was a difficult moment but on the other hand. I think i kind of proved to myself that i could do it. That what county the most these day even though it was obviously difficult to lose to win. That's interesting so it's kind of a confidence thing. A breakthrough moment. In that way. I deserve to be at the top table. Yes no i. I deserve more. I can do it if i if i put everything i if i don't do any mistakes if i do the job in the car i can actually fight for victory and from that day. I knew that this was a possibility. Charlene knew that you knew that already. I.

Three beyond the grade has won a gong at the british podcast awards and a cafe at all. We one of the sport's biggest stars on the show this week charlotte lamb. He may not have the car to challenge for the title. But shaw is flying this year. He's had two pole positions in monaco and baco and he's shown. Incredible consistency in the races is currently sick in the world championship. Making him the highest place driver without a top three finish and scholley. It's only a matter of time before he adds to his tally of twelve. Podiums charles being on the podcast before back in two thousand eighteen when he was still racing for alfa romeo salva in his rookie season. So our chat. This time focuses on his years in red with ferrari. We reflect on his stupendous first season with the team in two thousand nineteen when he won a couple of races and came so close in bahrain as well and we look at how he's coped with the climb back to competitiveness after a tough twenty twenty. We also talk about teammates and team bosses. Bush charles talents arm limited to driving racing cars. He's developed a multitude of interests away from racing since we last spoke so we discuss those as well. And let's just say he's multitalented. It was great to spend time with them again. I hope you enjoy our conversation so great to see you. Last time you came on the pod. You're still a sour driver. Yeah there's been a lotta water under the bridge since then a little bit. Yeah things has changed quite quite quickly. let's deal with the whole big picture. Ferrari in what ways has driving for ferrari changed your life. I mean first of all. It was a dream since Since child obviously it was just incredible to know that. I will be driving for the team. I've always dreamed to be we since being a child. Then second in my private life also a little bit because friday drivers. I beat easier to recognize that. When i was in enough romeo so each a change a little bit but on the other hand half. You say that. I'm quite lucky in monaco people. I used to see formal drivers. So i'm actually having a normal life. Can you remember your first day's work for the team i do. I was very very impressed. By how many people were working on the cars I mean ferrari. We are a lot of people are the beginning. I felt quite lost to be honest. I really didn't know to who. I should speak to refer dotto dotti shoe but thankfully they really helped me and they was lost in the first days and and help me by putting just my mind geneva as a as the person to talk to for anything and then my engineer will help me to. Just go to the right guys at the right place. Yeah but it was very very impressive the first few days. How long did it take you to get your feet under the table at the team feel comfortable. I was comfortable from the from the beginning. I had a lot of things to learn but it felt like Like i've known them since a longtime straight away on the social relationships Then to feel comfortable in the way such a big teamwork's probably nearly a year will say nearly a year to understand exactly the dynamics. So the team. How you face issues. How you react to those problems. Yeah probably almost a year sommese and it's a long time really it. The man who only spent one year and every formula on the way up. Yeah yeah it is. It is a very very long time. But he's very very interesting to live. It fills a lot shorter and you can see oldest stepson every time. You are learning something that you have light than you are. You're just getting a better a better understanding of how everything works and also you feel more in control of the of the situation. How much better you now than you. Oh when you arrived my feel like. I've grown a lot as a driver as a person. How much better is difficult to quantify. But i definitely feel a better driver compared to when i when i first arrived just how much detail we are going into after every Difficult races bowl softer good races. We've had y'all always try to analyze absolutely everything and it makes it so interesting. I mean it's a easter sports where i'm always learning. I think anybody on these while everybody on this grid is actually learning. Every time they get into the car. It's so complex to extract one hundred percent of the car that you you learn something every time you get in it so it's It's very interesting. We're gonna come onto some races in them in it but before we do that you've developed a few interests since she lost came on the podcast and i wanna talk to you about some of them piano for example. I've seen. I know i was looking at your instagram. And there's some fingers playing the piano. How do i know they use get question. Tell me about your draining. Bring beyond noah the next race struck and hopefully show you that it's actually me. That's a that. Plays it. But i i enjoyed.

"STI carb dot com for all your carburetor fuel injection need. All right. We had Brian Armstead comeback on is a major one enthusiast and anybody that would get up early in the morning is you have to to watch f one. That's why we're having him on were they racist. What was it last night? No, no, actually a reasonable time. It was the middle of the boarding rain. So it was a nighttime race in Bahrain. Because. Bahraini because you'll be roasting and your Formula one car. Even thought of that. Did they do the same thing in Abu Dhabi? Absolutely. You don't wanna be a middle of the desert in the in the sun. Burlington your former one car. Lifetime race tyres rubbing off. Yes started off with, you know, Rory hold positions and position number two with the ANC patrol team positions. Lewis hamilton. Listen four thousand. The race got off to a buying Sebastian from Ferrari books that ahead of a pole-sitter Charles Leclerc in the first part of the race. And even Nova Leary both thousand Hamilton get past. So you know, after after I left. Klerk was in fourth place. But then he managed to get ahead of votes house to and then he finally got back into the lead after some some. I think what was the court by Mercedes to switch moves Hamilton to assault, which spent an extra pitstop. Escape out very quickly. 'cause Lewis Hamilton's aggressive. And I think the combination of the heat and the cars compound had Lewis Hamilton looking by. He was going to be you know, impressed position three at the finish. We're both houses coming in fourth place. Oh. Anything can happen. On rain Sunday. And you know, it just it just seemed to be really crazy. So Clark is comfortably ahead of the race by twenty five seconds. So. Out. I'm sorry. That'll spun out. Well, if you give me to tell you though. Okay. Thirty seven. In Hamilton where we're doing their thing. Vegetables second elements. To makes some move guest has Hamilton. And then bettle better health guess pass bettle better as he's prone to do, you know, he's always seems to make an error Formula one. He lost control of the cards spun it on track. At that point. Hamilton was clearly in second place votes. House both houses coming on. Eventually being in third place. So here's the real kicker of the race. By lap. Forty six. It was clearly in the lead by twenty seven seconds and St. radio in told his pit crew that he was having trouble with the engine. Well, they confirmed an engine issue for worry. Basically, his turbo gateway is hybrid power system gave way. Turbo was not able to regenerate power to the hybrid system. So he lost up one hundred horsepower. It was basically just running on the gasoline engine where the fuel racing to lead you on the other racers had there. Raking in ender hybrid system for just no boosts. You know, eventually, they're twenty seven seconds whittled down to just a few seconds and laugh after laugh you. Could see the gap lessening and by. Hamilton had taken believe me. Hopefully, but then things got really strange that fifty three also and I may have Hamilton lap. Incorrect as far as when he took the lead. I do have this correct left. Fifty three. Both of the the Renault's Daniel Ricardo when Nico hawkenberry. What was worse? Power consecutive each of each other. Only thirty seven fifty map oddest thing I've ever seen. David my show coming down the raceway ho convert was having a best races as ever seen him. Do you always seems to be midtech racer? Here we go, you know, they had earlier science. Whether you're ready to cover all your Jason there. Consecutive both lost power saying on still unknown injured problem being peer to run out of fuel. But you don't run out of field on on tracking? Those guys can. Two cards run out of fuel. So it turns out that with McLaren's engine failing. This happening. It didn't stay for the ending. But it was just kind of an odd. Because here comes both has to pass the clerk you pass them. Here comes back for stabbing from the red bull team who a couple more maps so pass Leclerc. Some part would have finished at while leading the race and almost guaranteed to win that he would have ended up in fourth place. 'cause here comes max Verstappen. Oh, and I'm sorry. This did have an impact on the race. Because of. Have happened because the safety car to come up. When the safety car comes up you have to hold position that you're racing in. And unfortunately, they didn't get to a Renault's also the racetrack until the end of left fifty seven. By the time Christians Hamilton winner. Suze restrictions. They wave. Hamilton. I folks I second Leclerc hung onto third spot because for stop and never got a chance to pass because Renault's crapped out on that. It was one of the oddest rates. It was really starting know Ferrari, friends, what color your curse me, cursing, me royally. But in the class of show up the, you know Hamilton is has kind of garnered a reputation as a spoiled diva cry entertain to a certain degree. That's true. I love the guy who you know. He's he's just a great racer and you'll see people of color sowing the sport, right? This very often. Or you never have really now. But at the end of the race and the drivers hit, you know, the little area where the symbol before. They in boats has clearly told the faster car. You've heard won the race weight goes Hamilton went on to tell them that. Hey, this kid's toy. He's got Gracie. Continues to raise prices racing. He'll be the new Michael Schumacher Lewis Hamilton. The great race state in the show. And one of the charter, so yes, it will be one of those early AM affairs. But yeah, you one you only get twenty one races year. So I'll be up while she all twenty one. Welcome back. Well, it depends on whether Moore. Hey, by the way, I reached out to Jerry. Because I saw I saw that.
