"Chilton but yet I like like you said he added cost of tires and whatnot is is the big differentiator. I don't know how much of a difference I would make but I can't disagree with your point there. Yeah it's Kinda hard to hard to draw a line in the sand. I guess honestly I you know. They brought back morning warm-ups which they took away for a long time and in so they they have given a more time but obviously at a track were. There is no conflict a little more time would be great but unfortunately I think right now. It's just not gonNA happen and to kind of add onto that a little bit to another thing. I think it should be addressed. Zep In indy lights right now. What they have what tools they have. I M S and gateway and I think that's it so even the guys coming up from indy lights right now aren't getting in my opinion enough experience to make that step to go to a Texas or previously Pocono and and so like I full faith that you're going to go out there and nail it so again that's kind of just reinforced in my opinion there but I think going forward now that there is only the two super speedways one big rate is now is Texas and drivers have seen come up to speed with that very quickly more recently. That's good so I guess it was always just kind of thinking as far pocono Pocono ever come back. I would have some concerns. Yeah it's fair. It's a good question. We could bait for a long time. About what would be the ideal situation. But we don't have time because we do have some fan questions tonight. I'm going to start us off. Fan Trevor. Mcclure from facebook wants to know with doing more prostitutes. The plan Here lately it seems like do we see anything like the Iraq series or something similar ever returning. Well that would be fantastic and thank you. Trevor for messaging me the question in jotting racing the other day. I would love it but died. I sincerely doubt it. It's one of those pipe-dream if we can find some sort of dot something expensive type of thing. Yeah sure but probably not the question trevor. I'm GonNa go with the never say. Never you know trying to be a little ray of sunshine here because I'm not normally the ray of sunshine on the show but never say never and I think Iraq was was awesome. And I think if we could find some sort of happy medium to bring that discipline I think the fans would react really positively to it. It just kinda comes down to finding someone to start it up but you know I'm not going to say no because I don't think we can never definitively say it's never gonNA happen. I am going to say no definitive expensive lag. Mike pointed out but also given the other series on Nascar F. One the links of their seasons and overlapping in things getting people interested to come from other series in be able to do that with no conflicts than anything else would be very difficult so I think that the people who may be interested in running this hypothetical series would would end up with conflicts with somebody else who is interested so I think it would be difficult to get enough people interested in time slots in their busy seasons to make it work. Just what it feels like when you guys are both Kinda rays of sunshine in the night is coming in storm. Cloudy you very weird. It's not this is weird that year. Then posited widened as a weird feeling. What's going on here I? I'm not sure I like that. And to add onto your point pretty soon one's going to be at Lake. Forty-seven raises a year. Whatever they're trending towards so yeah I I guess I kind of ads for us at like forty three or something right so it's it makes it very difficult layer thirty six. Oh yeah they've gone backwards. Well regardless that's still a lot of rage is almost the full year yet. F one is not to exaggerate F. One is trending towards twenty two or twenty three which is more than anything they've ever done. So yeah the racing. Calendars definitely already full as is but Like an never say never in my opinion. Next question is from Chad Franken on twitter. You want to know would aid. Traction compounds system like a tire dragon. Help track like Richmond on allowing a second grooves. Maybe but let's let 'em race once before we start worrying about it the Oleg. It's a little early to even think about that especially at Richmond. But I mean it's it's something to keep in the back of their head for down the road. I think the big debate there will be resolved in the open test at Richmond which I believe is March twenty fifth. If I read correctly in hopefully I'll be able to get down there for the day so Chad. Thanks for the question and thanks for always chatting racing with me and I'll follow up with you in a couple weeks on that one so I'm sorry. Go ahead I think the thing for me would be is if it's tough to see how the banking is going to affect the cars. Because I think if the banking is sufficient enough there should be a second groove. It's just tough. I really don't know and I don't honestly think that it's higher. Dragging thing is GonNa help just because I saw what happened at Phoenix and we all saw what happened. Phoenix didn't help at all so and I believe maybe even Texas too. I can't remember if they did that. A Texas turn three or four but I wanted to but you know. I don't think that is the foolproof system that people think it is so I think we'll have to kind of like Mike said the test goes and then see if there's something that is actually needed at all I before we'd start to jump to that conclusion before the race but even if they do decide after the first test of this kind of a one track that. The dragons not a foolproof system. Either ever well so. The next question comes from somebody. I know very well and that would be my father. So thank you dad for submitting your first fan question after many text messages asking you to submit one at some point so with that being said who fills the remaining indy lights slots and the second part of that question is who will the championship battle. Come down to the championship. Battle is going to come down to Kyle Kirkwood versus Kyle Kirkwood and Kyle Kirkwood needs to stay Kirkwood's way to win the title and as far as filling those seats you know a couple of names still out there. One is Rasmus. Lind who I believe is connected to Lardy. There's a mysterious third age. Md motorsports entry that has yet to be announced as far as the driver But they have been posting many social media's about testing so with three cars there so they've only announced the two drivers at this point. The rest you know injured. I don't have a clue on. There's a party or two that maybe.

He said that, you know, sometimes you have to be a certain character to in order to advance. What the show is about.

I think that's I think. Know, you can't you make the best decisions. You can any given time basically information you've got so econ necessarily say they were wrong decisions. But you can save with the benefit hindsight. Well, maybe we re praise people for making the right decisions things. I manage more coming to that as well. Don't name him.

"The podcast about Alonzo in the NASCAR and album getting Toro safe you going to much, but by point there was the Easter very very good. You never know all happened in the driver market. And if one of those top teams needs a mega driver, and they haven't go for stopping Hamilton or Vattel, whatever on Burks than they might think. Actually, I work. We'll get we'll given underlines because even the full two year old Fernando Alonzo long as he's still right sharp is going to be full middle. Absolutely agree. So all over necessarily say the fun because completely closed very very specifically left the door. Yeah. He hasn't closed. Somebody will get carried away at the time in the summer saying he's retiring from from low nice. He did they very deliberately did not use very Nigel, man. So I'm not retiring. I'm still racing. I'm sitting fatal obviously Jenson Button, Saddam, not retiring in cozy hasn't but the phone on door probably has closed with Lonzo. Like, it says, I think is very much the chance for him to come back if the circus right because he left over his own accord, if he wanted to he'd still be on the great this year, the only the were against him is that is that the modern equivalent of saying on the leave McLaren because I'm sure for in the way into competitive call because there's going to be they're only going to be more. Good drivers come in. Auchan already on the thing when it comes to balance. I preparing let's those of you just felt there's no point carrying on. Any winning in twenty nine hundred type. Of course, there's no chances are always going to be faffing around in the midfield. Because sometimes sometimes you just need a break don't use well to clear head and maybe even come back stronger. We think there will be you know, if you put yourself in the position of team, boss, let's just say Mercedes Lewis Hamilton wins another world champion next year. The Nikkei Rosberg had enough. I'm gonna retire with six world championships. And then we'll saying what do I do anything? Well, let's say you the keeping boss in the car anyway cycle arguments. Our all come in fine. But anything wrong in a minute. We've got one guy maybe never seen in the front running Coleman guy. He has also a championship winning run already strongly. We need. Giral declared shirt join that league reporters and others could as these Charleston want. I want. The fact that people know Lonzo can do job means, I McClellan would never you never have imagined McClellan ever possibly go about Nando Lonzo a few years ago, also the seven, but they did because it was a it was a marriage it became a marriage convenience Alonzo needed somewhere porter optimistic about McLaren needed neither joyful at that. So thing we've seen haven't we fully pay Massey was done. And then owner we need a driver back. You come when you got some of that quality. And if you never know send you give him a cool, wouldn't he? Yeah. Chat might happen where we'll we'll see if we can find a few billion in the heart of even more one said store found his own F one upload data to go through. That would be a good thing rather than we have to go. Well, anyway, we've taught forty about Lonzo. But we could talk about many more hours. I think he's a driver who is still too close to his career to really make definitive reflection. There still may be more foreign racist comment, certainly it's gonna be great to see how it gets on the Indy. Five hundred twenty nine and continue sportscar outings. But he's driving for the ages though is one hundred percent drove for the ages. No question, and from my perspective, either privilege same in action Formula, one an enormous amount. And you can say what makes him such an incredible driver. He's a he's a likable is a likable characters and intelligent guy. It's very interesting to interview. Oh masterpiece. Oh, and he Osman interesting question. You'll get an interesting also rule I found some of the bombast a little bit frustrating. That's just him playing. Game. Yeah. Like, you said some I was talking about what he's like, he always said the snapshot that the public guesses, you know, a few seconds or minutes grabbed here and there on TV when drivers just come back from the most stressful situations their heart's racing it's not in the other and circus as well as needs to show..

"Yeah. An example of that is the top ten ratings again. There are there. Only three drivers got more than about a dozen most people got single figure ten now. Tenzin imagine logical country to popular opinion is difficult to get hurt. You know in the last ten years where thirty one alone has got twenty four. And normally you get more points of view in front of the great in the sense of your in champs, you, blah, blah, blah. So that's that's that's twin twenty four ten hour. Tens in the law them on wins. And it gives you an idea of just how many of the word to go through the night. I did have a long long shot list, the normal and that signed something because they usually pretty pretty long. That come to your your you've you've both been so many of lonzo's rices. There are there are so many. I mean, even with minority in see among Japanese Grand Prix. Excel. Indianapolis, equal turning really outstanding performances. The nobody nobody noticed that. There's so many of them as races where he's been where he's chasing in a car wasn't quite but he cut the car closer to the front the knee. He should've done could twenty ten guesses. One one example of that one right below dominant with Alain Weber Egypt's how normal to two thousand fourteen Hungarian grown pre. He came pretty close to winning Ricardo in the navy end. But the fact that you could argue that good Alonzo tunnel caving behind for that last couple apps. Maybe. Those those performance of hunted for free color was was Dr there's lots of these races the races. There is finished. I we shouldn't have done. There's other ISIS where he's finished third when he shouldn't finish fifth or finish when he should finish ten twenty Dhabi going previous light that last race is I rated, and I think I gave him a ten ten. He beat Philippi masses Williams eighth or ninth or someone lower points paying position. But again example of a race a battle that he won that he shouldn't have done really not that Williams was better than the McLaren Honda on that kind of track very engine sensitive track. Must have much more power. But Lonzo manage to find a way to to be. That's that's the thing about those needs so many races where he finds a way to achieve something that of course, it's possible. But so unlikely in the circumstances, it's just it just reflects what he is. He's a driver who consistent you manage to get the best one. I think one of the good things about the fats. He spent an unusually large amount of time in poor cars, and it has been frustrating at times, but you have seen some some great performances in very unpromising situations in the material and we saw in twenty eighteen as well just what he's capable of doing. And when when he's on some he's able to just just drag up performance that will actually stand the more. That was timing gets that incentive. We talk about legacy subjects, for example. Let's take another two-time champion at a very long post temperature. Emerson Fittipaldi now he had a few races when he's drawing Fittipaldi team races. Where diesel valuables and really pushing. It wasn't very promising. The call Bloomberg good. Whereas. Lonzo more often able to police performances out in in more limited machinery inside probably say, actually, you know, that that that's a great, positively do that the soil. That's and that's why I'm looking forward team and all the other calls, even if we don't say in back in informal, actually, his one one phone a question to both of you. And so what would you like to see him in? If he because he hasn't announced four two in nineteen program as didn't think about saving anything Frank. Well, yeah. Well, suggestions wish I nine one seven historic historic. Yes. Rec- called Simpson. Classic t the revival. I remember watching him. He demotes a fifty one for all rhythm five. I grand prix winner. Silverstone? I think he might have driven Bahrain one year as well. And you can see slowly Macau around really spectacular. You know, sometimes you see drivers getting calls about vintage and they so poodle round. But he was he was loving it. And just spectacular brilliant to say. So I think they call that. Because. He be in competition. I think it'd be great anything. But honestly, I prefer to see mak- unexpected to roic midseason comeback in Formula one it can ignore. We talked about only.

That was a good car that year. It was published one involving thing that. Yeah, he was a bit rusty was as well. Carb now, poverty, just well if it was to sum up on those crave. Really he should finish second behind vessels red bull. But actually, the red boo breaks on the same lap, grow egos. Pulse. Crozier then asked to offer assertion grows on, but he shouldn't be head of him in the first place grows as the same tonight to problem is ripple. And he wins on these runs out fuel has to stop on the slow down lap because he's got life you need the sample. And then so he just celebrated the home fans for a few minutes before he gets picked up by the so it's just emotional number one most having, you know, hideously quintessential on it was a brilliant tricks. I mean that that's me is taking a tricky car getting the best out of it. Been given big presented an opportunity with battling trouble that race novel. And she twenty two should have been. But was that they would send races off was. Yeah. It was able to walk in particular. Shame. I thought. Turn on as he came in the crowd is he said it Raty oversaw at Lloyd for for that Canada. I think it was not yet, but legitimate reasons, but yeah, but it takes all the box is lesser car. Given us knife victory some great over taking place. Just absolutely forcing the issue. And the other reason we really wanted to have a twenty twelve while number one because I think the twenty twelve hundred twenty twelve campaign is one of your time great agrees campaigns. I think is I think you made a mistake it star. And I think that's pretty much any point. He gave away draw people underestimate how tricky that for was at times. It wasn't a great car. But you just seized opportunities whenever whenever they happen to just maximized, and and so many random variables pretty ties nobody could work out. So to have a driving like that he's able to improvise better than the other that allows him to elevate college had never been in championship contention ROY into the Harlem, it would have been.

There's so many different types. I many different things winning on the pressure coming from behind winning in the best winning in definitely not the best car. The legacy tracks. You know, it's not every we talked about on a recent combat somewhat really pizza of Embry tools about though certain tracks where he was incredible on. But you don't say any of that with Lonzo. You just see just consistent excellence. That's my it must have been such a hard job to do this this cave because I mean, I didn't have to undertake this task. But thinking about it is so hard to pick. Because so many of his races are so good. Yes. He's always at such a high level. There aren't these kind of massive peaks stand out where you can oversee say. Oh, yeah. This this this this because the others fool bellator Senate, even some really nice, even something great drivers have kind of obvious choices, and it's very hard to sustain that level as long as I just been so relentlessly good throughout his career..

"Which is. And this is where the my of let emotion creep in. Just having time. Yeah. Succumbing Porsche nine one seven and that. Seven. Control. Yeah. Absolutely. So this was this was the one tyre year and British ending it right with Ferrari. So they were often qualifying for back and then having amazing race pace in this one. She MAC ape over second quicker than anyone else and sheltering tenths to third to Jenson Button, the second and then charge a foster Lonzo and with eleven twelve laps together together, and he had at least society second advantage, and given how Weli breeze pulse. Everyone else think also on. I was still on the engine that used to win in Bahrain. Previous rows. Right. So even turned down. But he just didn't make a mistake. She said the problem had was just didn't make any mistake. Anyway, he was sliding down. We needed to use the traction of the ran away in the right places. If you watch the if you're the reply obviously afterwards repay not from TV 'cause he's the rice famously where I went for bright with about. Three or four minutes to go. People wrote in and missed very free cross. I missed it. He just Margaret she gets the nose down the inside into tosa once twice prop is not a we can get within the second. These in the here. Yeah. So are have had a bit social media feedback on this. I've rated because San Marino it's hard to tight which is fair. But I think given the context of who is and the patient launch. They've got and the fat. And this kind of this is a long ago era chat to warm. Well, the pace you think is the key point neck is. I mean, how been saying recently that that's that's the the threshold isn't it you need really a second a lap over another driver to make a pass in ferry. Aero dependent cars most the numbers actually higher. Maybe it's gonna accounts when those nice. Now when there's even more arrow than there was then. So if she might go a second on everyone including Alonzo even on a slightly tricky, but not impossible to take on circuit. He probably should get the job this great defensive drive, isn't it? It's unusual parties guy. We talk about the thing is that kind of drives people though, everyone's will see sensational passes at that discipline and opening a foot wrong under intense pressure from an all time great, you know, so incredibly difficult and many many drivers would fold under. We said we said the had roles reversed in that. Nobody green rice two thousand seven months ago passed the nuns, I probably wouldn't have been. So that tells you drivers do they cracked? In fact, that was one of the criticisms often never him that in the rare occasions where he was under pressure. He folded the bit on occasional vocals, you did return the favors. I'm gonna throw. Here's. But it was everything that physicality Boston Suzuka. Yeah. It wasn't defending phantoms in the breaking areas renew where I guess you. Yeah. You trust the guy behind the economy. It's just based his judgement not cracking under pressure. It's just two very hard close. Drawers did not going back to the emotional side that you let creeping did Mark that sort of passing of the garden. It was the moment at which she could see again. Yeah. This finally this run being broken. Definitely that special rice and not even as that pace of answer. So what's number one, so reveal offing Fernando would probably agree with this because of the emotion here bit, again, the two thousand twelve European Grand Prix is Valencia street for it. So he he rates as his best rate. He he's one of the ones he mentions a lot when he's looking back. I think partly in front of his home crowd. But it's also it's just classical. It's swashbuckling streetfighting. Clearly, the call was in the chrome down the grade eleven this puts him into the having won grand prix from outside the top ten calls, which is very small class. It's hiney. Twenty three or twenty four or something like that house and we've out almost thousand rates, so you know, lots of teen. He did have a bit of lot. Some of the calls in the mid pack had slow stocks jumped limited. I would take a lot of cars got up third before safety car period and impossible to take on that, sir..

If you remember, I think pumps on both right? And so is flawed damage all sorts of things it was a mess. And some drivers Kim Moroccan would have pulled over going. Back to the hotel and semi dragged it back along as I said himself. No one else. I. He rated is his best race of the year. Very. In fact, because he when he came into the pets. It was basically coming in Knoxville scans the pit box because he couldn't turn left very much. You actually hit the wall of the pit will though. The union the pointed in the right direction. So you guys sort this out what I think this shows is just this well to kind of carry on drug it back in it's like, right? And it's called it's been battered at Lowe's a floor damage. I mean, he said the actually it wasn't it didn't feel too bad. But it was damaged which were missing Bill to go. And how about Moines such as to guard and say, right? I'm gonna go and call that you've taken a few big hits. So then once once the restart happens, and you go into that. I hit the brakes that take something in a car that that could easily truly no you put big low through the through the front suspension, something fails, you rated it as one of the best drives the aid. Because it was just I mean, he he paused for offer dozen calls in that rice in hobbled car in a call already. Having watched the way with driving previously in the weekend during free proc- was having to hustle it to get out of it. So it was just a very improbable win. It just shows that sort of indomitable spirit, and is it says a lot that is the from his second. Prince value was seventh place where I saw previously. Best seventh place ever. Yeah. That's probably fair. Only sunny his holidays today. Crikey. Challenge long and the next one really sums up particular Aaron east career for me as well as a two thousand eleven bridge and pre this was the one rice where they temporarily banned blown diffusers exhaust blown red bull Renault red, boo. Techno Joe, everyone is going to hurt. Right. Bill actually, really hurt and claret did help for already. So they were in being three calls the saying of the pace of the rebels within two in qualifying and he just chase them relentlessly classic Alonzo in the rice. A night both had slightly slow pitstops, and he jumped on June the stops that ain't stop behind Hamilton who is struggling with. Mclaren. I think he chewed up his toys and in the few laps for Vetter to get past Hamson, Lonzo put ten seconds on them. And that was it race never going to get back to then he ended up winning by sixteen. Anyway. So it was once again, this is within the range of win ability bang. He's done it opportunity, and he spent most of that polish create chasing red boost in the and that was one day. React. She turned the tables on them. It's interesting, isn't it? If I wonder if if on parallel university in one mate category, and you had more of this equalize performance between the cars alongside probably would have won so much more because he take that little bit performance away from his main rivals, not completely closed the gap, but he's able to make the difference. His name. That's another sign of a special drive within your Lonzo Kubica Hamilton is you three air than if the same. What's number seven the treaty? Thousand twelve Malaysian Grand Prix. Yes.

"Great great, great from and let the stats don't do Justice do that. He's one of those drivers forever reason their myriad. He just doesn't have the numbers to back up. How good it drive is. I agree. I put him slightly above vegtable. Even though he has half the number of one of the things that also Alonzo houses almost wanna talk twelve for our which saw the season was real really difficult car. And he that was a long almost one of the Trump's much the same way as he dragged McClellan to six constructors championship eighteen that was the Lonzo doing it. If I was being really cheeky. I'd say he never drove into anyone from winning chance you Schumacher. He would not allow Nico Rosberg twinset twenty sixteen chance she'll lose because he wouldn't have messed up the starts and he wouldn't have lost twenty eighteen Sanjin furry because he wouldn't give them any points. Whereas Vetter though. Of course, it's never simple as you. Don't know. But he's he's in there with them. We should also say that he came very close to twenty two thousand seven championship very close to winning the twenty ten championship very choice to winning twenty twelve Petrov in twenty ten. So there's there's three championship straight away the cane ultra ultra close to. So suddenly, you do that. He's got five championships and changes. So I think it's kind of his his is what he's like a holy two time champion if you'll put it that way, he's a statistical anomaly isn't he is he's statistics are amazing. But they're not quite amazing enough. Now, that's probably very fair in its it shows specifics tell you a lot of things, but you have to be responsible with the use of them though. They're only parts of the story. There's a there's a way to pitcher. Hi, it's Jamie, progressive's employee of the month to month in a row. Leave a message at the hi, Jamie. It's me, Jamie.

"Right. Because of what happened what? Well. Well, though, I lost ticks. Oh, I think they're an indicator of the fun proof that list, I put my head of vital. Get into bit more to debate. In fact, we had one here it's difficult because she mica on question in your top view of that that becomes really hard bartered Alonzo's our top ten for me talk ten to twelve ever. I think that if you were doing a constraint comparison with I mean Louis is probably easiest one. I think Hamilton is got in the last eighteen months two years where he's probably at the same level Lonzo has been at his peak while the above she throwing the caller phone thing. But for me if you look at their whole career Alonzo got his Pete, Mark sooner or can't think of a year like Louis had into Levin race into bounce off a massive or Salvador every other and Jenson Button beaten by malls. Hasn't really button Lewis. I think fifteen maybe I think. Still wasn't. He was beaten by himself to me in Brazil. She goes smooth press briefing the other journalists and he's only asked him to write his own season. Kinda do point you just because it's interesting to see what make him make of how they've done in. Whether they are overflowing performance or underselling in our surprised at how honesty was just not he'd Steuben brilliant. But he felt he had been below his own best because I guess the project just didn't. Anyway, name was gonna does also have a slot. You wait thing. He does. Sometimes when he's a bit the noise with the world his slightly religion while driving. We saw a little bit of the end twenty eighteen or one stroll forced officers which fine stroz in the wrong map. Then just going on the throttle across those three track cuts and long season mistakes. That night ice when he retired and the rice on Okinawa's just point the hang on the outside today.

Counterpoint to the ice. He spent an awful lot more Tom of his career in media machinery, the great stew. So they're not off most grace if I got the second year away, even the first year mccown Honda two thousand fifteen having a bad yet. Content paycheck and retire. But it was still putting heart performance, you still one of the highest rice guys in twenty six hundred seventeen hundred eighteen that's remarkable. So yeah, I think that's what if you compare the other great that always gets counseled out by the the number of extra. He's had had to face that particular challenge one. And otherwise looking as you both know poetry both with the average driver racing's world sport of that ten years. He's been doing the F one drive YouTube on most of them, and the average across that time is that the peaks the best seasons have been put in by veteran Hamilton and the average until the last couple of years Hamilton lawns. I almo- almost exactly the same to the topic. The newest hundreds of Mark. Wow. Even ten that close. So. I think that shows the consistency owns those had and kinda backs up our point about he's he's real races relent since as as maybe coins relentless out of the cars. Yeah. Absolutely relentless person. I think we can say he is an all time..

So often some of the reasons why I make the comparison mountings member when he got former out the suspension Williams after fourteen bathing portrays off to portrays the actually the previous season. Been a bit more out with him. It's because Mansell had that mindset to Chuck into a corner. No, the actor was gonna buy even a certain way. No that he'd be able to deal with that. And it's just that confidence premium Ferdinand to to say, I'm gonna go in and sort that not many people can can achieve what we've know even touchable. Another one of these great strings rate it which is just think he's just all around awareness of what is going on.

He doesn't need to know really normal Indianapolis, but you see source of exam when I was we'll get on greatest races lists soon, but what comes out and you so many times funding space on a on a first lap.

Did he get hit those yet? He could say look onboard enu that was all happening before anyone else had nowhere to go. And see that all the time. He just knows what's going on expand with lots capacity to to know what's going on capacities. The key word, and it's one seem as well. He said in two thousand and three lines.

And when his first race that season in the hungry hungry and Pat said during that lap he was talking to us navy all the way around he says low to drive a slowdown that little bit. They don't like to be spoken to on the radio certain points. We hit I even now only talked to me on the straight. You know, the Staten the said Alonzo taught us all the way around and set the fastest lap of the race. That's the the mount of his brain he's using to operate. The phone one car is that much smaller than everyone else. We just gives him that much greater with to do things, including engineering of the things little bit of showing the in the past few years when? Radio's become ubiquitous in the coverage. That kind of thing that Alonzo FM has become a bitter comedy channel, which I think doesn't down a bit because we haven't been able to hear him operating. There are examples in your greatest winless to exemplify that before we go to the the top and Lonzo. Wins. What about Alonzo's legacy cavern, statistically speaking? He's the fourth of his era behind marketing Makarova's. Hamilton, Sebastian veterans championships wins pole positions as the numerical argument. But so where does he stand?

"But your other guy calm and then suddenly overrule for the team that's challenging because you won't both of your car's going quickly as possible and scoring many points as possible. Whereas if you've only got one doing that job your half as effective as a team, I think the thing is the word Allwood of used as well. It was a piece in all spoil thousand five compare in reluctant and loans who were at the time the next well came on tour as well. Go to mention, but really it was wrought Rodman versus Lonzo and the Bassi arguments that on your perfect lap. When the caller is absolutely bang on rock and will be quicker than he would be now. But those days he would be because he closer corner speed precision all the rest of it. But Nantes at ten you don't have the perfect race car. And that's why. Fall on the way to get. But I think that's also why has this reputations of relentless driver. If you look at laptops at the Mon lost in. So over the best ten last best twenty laps. He was second. Third quarter. Toyota guys, you extend that stint longer and longer and he moves further and further ahead. Nothing is because doesn't matter. Whether you got hard fuel low fuel ties in nacogdoches, new whatever he will find the best way getting that particular packet at that moment around the track in the quickest time. The hearts of what makes a great. Because for example, if you ask anyone who's at McLaren in two thousand seven but say, well, Louis, actually, probably any given qualifying not good may be fun extract little bit more speed from it potentially. But in the races Alonzo's, always the guy who was there all the time authentic and changing and dropping in and out. Exactly any Any other other. other sit there and argue the the greatest qualifier and f one history Alonzo is not quite in that talk peace. Not with the sun is probably the Hamiltons as well until handle. But he's still still exceptionally good. I mean, we're talking the best of the best Laso you still out there. But not right in the very saw. But just as all round package and the ability to just operate and get the most out of in in all of these conditions. Incredible LeMond is a great example where you've got so many variables feeding into it. But he's able to adapt. And that's what the great joy was do. They can they can adapt to situations. And that's why there's no car we couldn't drag out time out of that's why he can demolish teammate live live under difficult. And perhaps that's always say why hasn't ended up being one of the great qualifies. Because you'd think that that ability to adapt and improvise with making brilliant on a Saturday. But it might also mean the of chasing the opposite finite points set up you don't need to because you know, he can deal with problems. I will. Accost your Hamilton's may be the key to them getting that little bit more is that they hone in just that little bit more. They try not to live on their wit's, quite so much very much. Only talking Tony mountains. Of course, a weakness. I would say I'm not a bad qualify. Let Cammie times I've my teammate three for the he is an extremely good qualify that just says about what makes intrude exceptional that the strengths stress really seen bad cars, isn't it where he really shines on of the the hidden joys. The fact that he has to fight for title is one thing. But the fact he's been some bad cars for so long recently, get to appreciate actually the full extent of his ability because he has destroyed drivers like Reichen in Vande on who really really really drivers sessions from the twenty eight thousand season watching tracks to every grand prix weekend places like back in Singapore to seeing the ability to hustle, the car and that that just showed van Dorn just kind of constrained by the limit. Stations whereas lawns. I was willing to kind of right on the edge and make spectacular to watch. And it's.

He's been in the top five throughout av six he's remained makers much grill. Now, so on from that point of view. Yes. Your oversee losing somebody who is fantastic. And it's always showing unleashes that. But it's not like we can have a bunch of talent city running around look at the people coming in here. The clerks getting into a top car, which I think we all think is correct George. Russell landau. No is coming in from. So it just is. For moves on. I think venture this early on just it will fill that hole. I mean, I don't get motion to hold and cynic who now don't get to motion about multiple very often. But I did did get a little bit the last that TS twenty knock quite is. You know, when lonzo's go with veteran Hamilton on the slowdown nappy nappy Dahbi news thing that the fact that he's going is a real shite places. He could get to them. Exactly. Yeah. I is a real shame. Turns of universal like those three would have had some unbelievably good thoughts loss years, but it's not happened in east going and someone will fill the vacuum. Because that's how one in ten years me why how on vet Elisa. But there were a whole new guys guys would be talking about how make this interesting. You may not point because I think the stopping said that he was slightly upset that he wasn't going to have these fights the Lonzo, you know, he's going to miss each other on because Alonzo's bang out. Just as max. He's really coming. Good. And Lewis had a few of those battles oversee direct one in the title fight that we mentioned in seven, but for stopping won't get to his against Lonzo. We think in a straight fight is a shame because you you like to see the new guys coming in properly tested against the established stars. Yes. We have got some we've got Vetter we've got Hamilton. But Lonzo is in that bracket, and we won't get to see whether all leclair's your the snap ins gasoline, or whoever you think of the coming guys take him down in the way that Alonzo took down. She Macah what he has done though, initially Pratt's movie onto his legacies. That he does bridge that gap between Mark Schumacher era and the current law, and so you we know Lonzo could go toe to toe issue MAC and come out and talk not saying is necessarily greater. That's komo's that sort of thing. Yeah. He did the job. So the people that come on off towards people are how much all they matched up to him and tell it to will then they must be underlines the strength of the current generation, even when Alonzo's gone and also the next loud coming in some stoppings will do so against how in Vetter. So there's that kind of policy on balking understand. Why max it'd be disappointed? Other Lucy's quotes at the end of twenty seventeen interesting when he's basically saying he basically was Vetter world, Lonzo Mustapha as the three dollars you reading between the lines are now can be wetter. Don't know about wrapping yet because Alonzo. Yeah, I'm not that test really for a while. He no, they they will know who the good ones are knows. I think those four no that the other three guys to be looking. Then don't your question that is shameful Ephron. Because if your rain is make got your reigning double world champion saying. Lonzo ease one of the three guys. He most has to watch out for on the great accepting all the others the time. He said that he didn't know anything about the clan. We wait. No, probably until we end this year. But Lonzo is in that bracket for Lewis and is shame. If Dr with that quality is no on the great of how it happened. My one caveat to that is I think he does that he's doing the world of motorsport favor because he's still box office. He is able to an analysis fans of IndyCar icing. All sportscar racing.

"The need Eric described it as like a person needing oxygen to breathe Alonzo needs to win and he said himself, even even mundane pointless activities like football with his mates. He wants to win so badly if he doesn't he throws. He throws his toys out the prime. He wants to change the team's up. He wants to redefine everything. So he can win the next time saying the former one environment he'll go into every project thinking, right? We are going to win nothing else. Who do how do we get? And if any part of that project fools away or doesn't deliver you instantly get into problems, and then it becomes a deconstruction of okay, whose not pulling their way who's not telling the truth or who's trying to hide behind something that they did wrong. If everyone's honest about where the failings are and can present a clear map to get out of that trouble. He'll he'll buy into it and oversee McLaren had to do that quite a few times in the the second stint because the Honda project was going so badly wrong. If you don't do that, then he'll he'll coup. Out on it and start demanding that things change in a cost. That's when you can get into tensions with people who are trying to maybe protect themselves or deflect attention away from them, and it can get into a hole into a whole mess. But there is one preconditions will that Lonzo sees the focal point needs to be him for that. And that's really what went wrong with the first one McLaren with Lewis Hamilton unexpectedly being strong in his first season. And so a lot of things to be done correctly done the right way such such Satcher. That's a positive thing for you run into plenty of people in management positions are necessarily focused on the right things, you will run into politics centuries, cutting through that CPA demanding it's this fact that he has to be the the man that is focused on redid see with run out a few times when eat lush out the team has made a really really good point on that score. He said joined the the high of success with that team t- thousand six just want his second world championship. He said he. Had an extraordinary press conference where he just slacked off the team and everyone was totally taken aback. He said the alums I lost a lot of friends within the organization that year and pats point having worked closely with Michael Schumacher, another great data chief the numbers to matches ability. He said Michael was all about the team. Even when the team was having bad moments or struggling things weren't quite working. He would always support them openly and behind the scenes, whereas in pats mind Alonzo is all about team Alonzo. The team is only a secondary element that works for his ambitions, which actually is fine in terms of if you have team set up that way that can be really successful that can really really work. Well, everyone has to exactly, but this this is what this is that that's the the facts at the heart of the disruption. He's not some lease county runs around causing problems. That's the sensor of Saudi blaming you want to be the focal point. And maybe you can do that. Maybe you can decide your that driver when Marcucci Micheals dominated death one. And you're the new kid on the block and the guy you can beat him which is while he was in the air before Hamilton came on the same for Sebastian veteran. And then later you get drivers stop. And so he's almost he was at a point where he do home-ice cornered the market for exceptional grand prix drivers, then the market flooded Cabezas appearing and Jenson Button rising as a championship winning force. And that that's one of the things that made it harder against positions. He wants to. Yeah. Because four one as Musone it's never static. And there's a there's a point where Alonzo he is the man he's toppled this mighty German drive. He's dominated phone on for so long. And we're all wondering when furry rain would ever end.

"What you can't do that. Now, maybe with a big disruptive rule change a lot with seven twenty twenty one. You can make a jump at it takes a long time to get into the front. So he can stay with McLaren for nineteen and realistically, expect anything better than with absolute perfect drum McClellan, we know better than the front of the midfield and most likely behind that gave them another gave them enough time. Didn't he Tony Tony t seasons of mccowan? The thing was all promise in delivery, and he had three seasons of that torment. And then still stuck around to see oh is Reynaud engine a basis around which we can actually get. Up to the front again one season in snow happening comedy blame McClellan had their own problems. But it's just the same old story with a different engine him, isn't it? So he's thinking, well, we're no further forward. It's been by now four seasons. So even if there's another rule change opportunity, we didn't take advantage of the last two if you count the engine changes that occur and tried to get on board with Honda, and then the two thousand seventeen aerodynamic rule changes that were vast are the ones before nine changes. They fell foul of. Yeah. So, you know, he's he's he's probably looking at the bigger picture there and going well, the signs look very positive for the future. So maybe it's time to just finally pack in who may temporarily I think are very fair the point about the way the rules are now and they're not commensurate teams. It's not like you can get there for the human gearbox and go from one rushing hope to competitive, but they're all three teams therefore sixties winning cars, and for one reason or another can't get into any. Now, I'm big fan of his. There is a reason for that. Because it's not nothing to do with what he does on track. We will accept these been one of the top two or three best draws decade in half. So I think Lonzo has played his part in him. Now having no options other than aren't gonna go and win the Indy. Five hundred and whatever else he decides today. Now, the case Christian Honan talks about it that they were Cain Alonzo because I felt he was a bit of a disruptive influence, and again, this is where myth comes. Auditor later, while some of that is is massively over blind. There are certain aspects of Alonzo's character. He kinda needs to be your focal point and a that kind of comes with with its Harry as we seen in the past. You could argue that McLaren had been in in button Renoir together, but they weren't fighting at the front says easy to be matey with the other world champions in that in that scenario. So interesting interesting that you know, talking about these three teams and six eight to if those teams he hasn't worked with before horn has no direct relationship with Lonzo from four point of United tighter. But both of them at different points of made publicly that reference to not show about loans as characters the kind of guy we want to have in our team. So they must have got that through secondhand information. Because they haven't had it been team win besides one him alongside Hamilton and rebel wouldn't want him alongside stop. They didn't have those two different story. Of course. Yeah. Yeah. And of course. He had the Ferrari see. That that protect unraveled again because it frustrated ambition. You know, he he he dropped probably drive like a hair. I didn't send me two seasons. For Orion came Cyclades doing the championship. And eventually he just kinda thought well, this is not going to happen. They at that down with slide massively in fourteen and then mass of the rest of my to the challenge of the Hollywood engines anyone narrowly same as Reynaud with red bull in that point, the reason they struggled so much early on is that Renault underestimated how much of a jump that wasn't didn't didn't plan for enough ahead, and of.

I mean, well, just an example on on also dot com. Lemond coverage into eighteen where it wasn't really rice because Katori to beaten sales. The numbers just because the loans I was there occupant Indy. Five hundred on the cover in two thousand seventeen because Lonzo it was there. So yeah, he's he's incredible. He still got that pulling power so long after what you would consider to be pumping Formula one. We should say that that is real is not us imposing ECI website stories at now, there's constant fascination with Lonzo. He's a genuine superstar driver and the sleet and the interesting. So the fans let's get into it. And. Informative critic and chief in the past twelve months is it entirely votes. F one that it's lost one of his biggest stars is a little bit more to the story than that. I don't think you can really say this Formula One's vote. Phone on just as well as if anyone supply.

So it was his choice to leave one didn't reject him outright. If you if you're trying to find an entity to blame for his decision to walk away from foreign one really pro re that blame has to fool with McLaren Honda because he staked a lot on that project restoring McLaren to former glories and challenging Macedo for well domination. It just didn't come together. And it's all been downhill since that project unraveled fair thing is lost four f one, but isn't effluence full econ. Correct. Who and what do we mean by F one? That's a bit strange thing that people say is the great Dr with we should be in a great car. If there were more great competitive cars than he'd be able to fly for wings and each style. You could also. Might this argument that one of the key reasons was the Alonzo it lost hype. It seemed like McClaren getting to the front within a realistic timeframe. And he was quite right because teams are competitive when he first came into formula thousand one with minority look at weather, the Benetton voters, the Bobo that sage was and if he is later winning championship championships, right?.
