"Formula One has descended on the orange army's home turf this weekend for the Dutch Grand Prix at zandvoort and Max Verstappen was not going to disappoint them. Bouncing back from an issue on Friday in a couple of areas in final practice that left him trailing Charles Leclerc, Verstappen snatched pole position in a dramatic Q three on Saturday afternoon. At that time of one minute, 10.342 gave Verstappen pole by just two hundredths of a second from the clerk who is left to rue his own error at the end of Q three. Elsewhere there was a response from Mercedes after its sparse slump, joy for Mick Schumacher and Lance stroll after making it through Q three and questions of a fan actions after a flare was thrown onto the track at the start of Q two, bringing out a red flag. Joining me to debrief today's qualifying session is auto sport Grand Prix editor Alex Cullen or Alex, let's start with the main man this weekend, max stapp and we've all seen how crazy the fans are for him here. I've got the supermax song stuck in my head. It's charged to pole position. I mean, it was kind of maybe inevitable in terms of the whole event, but it was a close run thing. What did you make of his performance to get poll in Q three? Do you know what I often have that supermax? Oh really? That's so damn catchy. It really is. It really is. No, but the first time hearing it sung by thousands and thousands of people, which are pretty cool and they're all dancing, dancing around. We will get to the idiots that are frankly I guess what I would say ruining it for the rest of them. We'll come on to that later. But yeah, if you're actually stopping the sporting action with your own stupidity, you are ruining it for other people and they should be widely condemning it as very good to hear Max Verstappen and other drivers doing that. But yeah, talking about max Verstappen today. Yeah, it was interesting. I was very fortunate enough thanks to you, volunteering to do the FB three report, allowed to go outside and watch final practice from the turn three and the incredible banked corners, I think very much leaky. You're welcome. It's one of those places and there are fair few on the F one calendar, but genuinely like. It's one of those places where you're like, I'm so lucky to be here. Because obviously it sort of raised up sort of above the paddock overlooking if you look behind you, and you can obviously see the pit lane entrance and then the grand sans are behind you, but it's relatively few people who can go and stand around though, so you've got the marshal as the photographers. And they are bringing some paddock club guests up there as well as with that various points, but just yet now to look down at it, you're like, wow, hardly anybody seeing this at the time and it's just a tremendous way to experience Formula One cars because of that banking is so steep, it's such a narrow, just of area of the track. But yeah, they're turning in so late. It almost just wait for their front wheels to hit that branding at the edge of the track and then turn. There were a couple of areas from max late in Q three, particularly on the exit he was looked like he was really really struggling. And it's interesting in qualifying as well in the head of the final ones. That's where it looked like it was going ever so slightly wrong because the car looked quite loose. It looked like he was struggling. That was on the first runs, but also on the second runs, he said that rebels didn't quite get it set out lap optimal. He was in traffic a little bit of traffic just about the tyres weren't quite ready. That's I think that probably paid him back come the middle sector will come and talk about Charles Leclerc in a moment because speaking to some of the sort of engineers at the moment with the tyres at this track as ever tyres which will be delicate. But what happens here is that if you push them too hard as this case other tracks, you will lose the lab go on. But this one's quite different in the engines don't seem to be sure exactly quite how much. It's much more of a guessing game, just what the ratio, the percentages of life left. Versus life taken already. So yeah, that looked to be something that might cost Verstappen. But in the end, yeah, leclerc, I think he's going to look back on that one and think, I probably threw pole position away a little bit there. We'll come on to talk about him in a moment, but yeah, could end up being very crucial for the race because as good as the 2022 cars are in terms of being able to follow closely, the DRS zone being closer is a very narrow old school track and I think that will make overtaking very difficult. But considering what we have seen at other venues, I'm slightly more optimistic than I would have been if it were 2021 cards back again. Yeah, definitely. I think that's going to be an interesting point. It's something that's been asked of quite a few drives this weekend. It was put to Daniel Ricciardo after qualifying sales. He's fighting back from 18th on the grid, and he kind of grimaced a little bit when he was asked like, oh, is it going to be better? So we'll have to wait and see. But we'll get on to leclerc. Now you mentioned such fine margins between them at the end they're .021 seconds between him and Verstappen and it could be very, very decisive because of the struggle to overtake, as you say. Can you talk us through what Charles said about his mistaking Q three and what cost him and well, and I guess did it cost him pop position? Yeah, I think judging by his words and the sort of the time that he estimated he lost there. The mistake would have cost him about one tenth of a second and that obviously is enough to make it up on the other end in terms of getting poll against Verstappen. But yeah, essentially the problem went wrong for him in turn ten. Now sorry, this is once again a self indulgent anecdote that I'm going to give to the listeners for basically an FP one. I was lucky enough to sworn off track so I had to get as well. Twice in three sessions. I do tend to do that. It's just because I like to just get a different sense of difference. But it also also for the track side feature in the magazine, which I would urge everyone when they naturally go and buy the magazine on Thursday to read.

"Third in the championship, only what four or 5. 5 points behind Charles Leclerc, who is the people's candidate for this year's drivers championship. Sergio though, your rankings, everybody on boxes of neutrals. Is 7th with 6.425. Yeah, oh, I won't reveal who's between him, but quite low down the estimations in terms of everybody. If there's a close fight, but I would be inclined to agree. I'd say that's about right because it's despite the fact so Sergio, what he's got a race win this year already up his sleeve. In terms of the number two drivers at Red Bull, it's certainly one of the better results on the label. But I just don't feel like it's been the same kind of kind of surge Sergio. I mean, Monaco obviously was, yeah, massive for him. So he probably, you know, if we want to give him a little bit of a bonus point, probably ran it out to. Let's give him a 7 in that case because I would have made it a 6.8, but let's be generous. Let's round it off to a 7th for him. But I would agree that a 6 and a half or 6.4 is about right. With Sergio Pérez's kind of just there and outside chance, but not really not really in the picture. It's bizarre that George Russell is more in the picture than Sergio Pérez to be honest. How much of a difference would it have made if news poll took the temperature of the box and it was Discord channel like not after Monaco, that's too easy. But let's say roundabout Canada time. So when he was still, remember there was a period of time where it was like, ah, he could be he could be a sneaky dark horse for a title contender. I don't think anyone really thought he was going to beat max. But there's a period of time where it was, he was in there. But it's come off the boil so hard in the last month. I wonder how much that's and look at as it should influence people because, you know, he's just not being there and he's been complaining about the car and I mean even some of his qualifying performances have been relatively poor in the last month. But the start of the up until I reckon what you finished second in Silverstone and in Austria I can't remember what happened. Why did you retire retired for some reason? Up until then, I reckon I would have probably up until then put him in the top four. I reckon maybe. Partly because of as you sort of sit there, like the Red Bull second seat syndrome and he seemed to have overcome that, but he's last couple of races, I don't know, they've been a little bit more questionable. I've been clogging and kind of great. I'm happy with these ended up here, but I think he's got potential to the end of the year to improve if he can sort of get back to where he was. Robert, what's your ranking? Oh, that's real. That's absolutely real. It's got the robo ticket of approval. So one in 7. For the Red Bull combination in the rankings. In the Nikolai feld ranking. Let's go to second and the vibe for second was very close. I'll tell you it's

"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.

"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.

"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.

I started again to get on the piano and became obsessed with it then boats more serious piano and got into lessons. I probably three or four months of lessons once. I knew how to rid the music basically. I kind of stopped even though i want to re restart now but just with the season. There are too many things to do that. I really have the time to to take lessons. But i want to take them back overall. I'm just any every time. I've got like ten fifteen minutes free at home getting on the piano and try to relax. What is it about the piano. I dunno just new music makes me makes me relax. Otherwise just can't stop thinking about racing. So i'm just putting myself on the piano and think about everything else about from racing. Does your girlfriend to charlotte play. Yes she does. I still together actually. We've tried it's not been very successful but it's It's nice yeah. I mean i think probably better having to pianos and then playing together done playing while four hands on the piano. Here's the problem though. Because you've got stein miami. I do know apartments big enough to stein ways. Yeah but it's How do you. How do you say An upright yet. It is an i grand piano. No not yet on my do the the step once. I've got two big up on had visions of a crane having to lift steinway ngop. Yeah yeah yeah quite Quite tricky But everything. I mean the the piano is in in the perfect place now. It's fantastic that you play. Do you sort of find yourself in a hotel in somewhere in the world and maybe going play reception and we have actually piano here showing the hotel. But i haven't played it haven't played i think i'm going to be too shy to To show my skills to the public yet. It's a fantastic. Go on very jealous. Another thing. i. I gather that you've taken vaguely recently is chess. Yep between the two austrian racists. You played against teammate call sites but what got you into chess. I was playing when i was younger too with my grandfather. Actually and then. I completely stopped playing and around at the beginning of the year with carlos musically. We were on a flight. We didn't know what to do and this chess up on my phone. Let's let's play chess and then since then. We are so competitive that we were actually more or less at the same level for some reasons and we found that very very an since that day. We just keep working now. I've got all the marching youtube videos to get better. We are just so competitive with everything we do. so have. You watched the queen's gambit not yet triggered your interest in gianotti. Oh no no no not even. But everybody's telling me to watch it. It's really good. Sales of chessboards. Went up eighty seven percent around the world in the first. Three weeks of the queen's gambit being released nice. So that's chest your man of many times. Because i wanna come onto paddle. I don't even know what paddle isn't it is. Some weird form of tennis is incredible when you show usual play paddle really sell paddle to me. Why would i enjoy it. It's easier to play them tennis. Do you play tennis. Yes okay unless the fact that it's easier than tennis immediately over. yeah yeah. Yeah because i was struggling a lot with tennis and every time you do a small mistake it has a huge consequence and basically you you lose the point in puddle. It's a lot easier to play. Okay you lot less mistakes. Why is it because you can use the wolves right. Yeah you can use the walls and the rockets are just more forgiving. And i don't know the thing that you play with the wolves. Give something that i love. And i think also my racing in general just a reflects his anticipation of where the ball is going to go. This kind of helps also so. I'm not doing it for racing. I'm doing it. Because i love it. But i think it might help me also for some of you any good. I'm playing quite a bit. But i've started on leap probably a year ago so i am okay. Spanish isn't it. Is that where. Spanish mexico cacao kuzin is very good. Have you played. Have you paid callers. I did of course i did.

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.

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 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.

"Like four hours. Four hours sleep every every night. which normally I'm more around nine ten? I'm a big sleeper so Yeah was it was a bit more difficult. But I haven't got any particular technique to get over the time zones. Peter was greedy and asked. There's two questions so I've thrown him back into the mix. Let's open the next one Stephanie. Also off the Internet now does this This is definitely instagram. Because it's well over two hundred eighty characters Stephanie asks how much involvement have you had in the development of the twenty twenty car. And how you oh you drivers make their contribution to preseason car design. This is quite a difficult one to the car design. We don't have much influence because we are not. It's a technical foul say to to try and yet to have the power to change these things then on the direction. It's more on the balanced you you want so different. Drivers have their preferences in balance whether you want to more of a series of our more industry now the team styles to know me a little bit so they know so what I want from the car and they tried to build the car around that to have more or less these balance and then we of course through the details. We changed the last few days with the with the setups and the freedom. We have with the setups on the Council on the cloud. These I need self. We don't have much influence but but mostly on on the balance as I said which depends depends on on different drivers and they're changing the car throughout the year. Quite a lot that you made a big step in Singapore but there were other steps and that's all in response to you. You saying what you want to do with the balance isn't it. Yeah exactly they are two different. Yeah in Iro Dynamics or you change something to other better better balanced throughout the corner. I WanNa all you just change the level of dynamic you have on the car so high downforce or low downfalls but this is more down to the engineers to to choose as I said we are more parts of of the drivers feeling at the end what we are feeling the balance of the car. If we got lily may from south had another one. The lady you down there with the tinsel Hello Lilly may from Southampton. I'm afraid my colleagues have spelled Southampton as two words can you forgive them. I know P for people from from Southampton a very proud of Southampton what I got you interested in formula warm. I love the speed. I Love the Journal of these sports. And that's what what I need when I was younger. I just love the speed. And that's what makes me like carting at first and that's why I still love the sports because it goes you grew up in Monaco. So you'll have heard the cars while while you were growing up. Wouldn't you also when I was at school. Actually the Thursday they were practice. That was starting which is quite special for the money for the money got Monaco Grand Prix And Yeah it was called here. The engine The former ones engines engines going on and of course I the only thing I wanted to go out of school. Go to see the film on cars and and that's what I was doing with With my father and my family in general whenever it was done so these also pushed me to to look even further into raising my illustrious predecessor. Zor is host of this stage. Got Expelled from stowe school for bunking off watching the Formula One testing at Silverstone. So you're in good company so we have read this Viagra. But I'm afraid lady from the Internet called V.. Andhra says how does it feel to be teammates with a four time world champion champion. How many things did you learn from him? I learned a lot really a lot. He's extremely professional and he's going a lot in to date. Details and savvy is also very nice Besson. So we're we're working well together. Obviously we've had our moments on the track which which in which we've learned together and hopefully it won't happen again things like in Brazil but at the end I think we are mature enough out of the car to work together Dan to try and develop the kind the right way but she I think in the way he's working with the team and the engineers I've I've learned a lot and I still got a lot to learn a lot in the details. I said and things that I never thought would be helpful to the engineers. He will say anything and sometimes I'm just here listening running for one hour. What he says about about a session and and he's just a very very interesting? Okay Stephen from the Internet. I'm thinking thing this might be a twitter question because it's slightly eccentric. How many flies on average hit your helmet erase the race? I'll say thousand. Yeah the answer the answer tear off so you don't Yeah we've got I think twenty twenty dollars off on the on the visor anytime I start the race twenty on I finish. I don't have any and I. I wish I had more. So yeah quite quite a lot. Do we have Karen from London here. Karen from London we have a question from flow. She covered dropped off. She left after depositing her question Karen from London ass given Ferrari's close links with theat- what will the chances be for Motoji he F- warm swap our love to drive motor GP. But I'm not sure for area agrees I need I need to us but I'll love to. I mean bikes. I love by in general but chair. I I'm not sure Ferrari agreed for me to drive them. You can't. He's in biology now. Isn't it so that will be off. Wouldn't it as a terrible shame. Meghan again asks what track do you find most challenging and what. We're on safe ground here aren't we. What track do you find most challenging and why overall roll the city trucks are the one? That's most challenging apart from them pro-police Uka the first sector is very technical. And if you miss one corner then you are late for all the others and you are losing a lot of time Suzuka and then in the trucks probably Monaco and Singapore my my two favorite trucks. But probably the two most challenging trucks or the season toughest Singapore you. You're sweating basically all the time on you. It's really hard. It's a big race. The race in Singapore's extremely difficult because it's very very warm nitrous. Oh for the is also you are making a lot more effort and I think he's also the longest race of the season. We always close to two hours and yet they are all so you can't afford to do any mistakes but but I enjoy this Joel will asks. What's your favorite moment from your Formula One career and why Monza Monza without any doubt just for the same reasons I said earlier to be on that podium and to see so many people cheering for one team and the team racing for was was something very special? Okay right one from the floor. I think we have logan from Bonn mirth anywhere Logan from Palm Earth logo for Logan from Bournemouth asks asks is twenty twenty one the year your going to win the title. I hope twenty twenty nineteen.
