"It looked like actually they'd let it slip because they hadn't, they hadn't counted on another team being as bold as Mercedes. So I know it's all if butts and maybes, but I think in terms of an individual performance. Yes, you're totally right in saying that spa is an easier track to overtake it. But it just looked like max was on another level. And Red Bull still provided everything that max needed to do. But as a driving performance, it was still mightily impressive spa. This kind of, I guess, I guess this is why it's so difficult to compare drives because they're always always in F one different variables to consider, but I think in terms of impressiveness, whilst I definitely do see what you are getting at, I think for me, as an individual, if we're talking about Max Verstappen, the racing driver, spa will still be that just that bit more impressive, just because you got to see the magic of max. Because other drivers were still struggling to overtake an AKA you go, well, he's in the fastest car. Blah, blah, blah. But I think that last week spa was similar to Hamilton, Brazil. And I think, whilst I maybe wouldn't say that Brazil was his best Hamilton's best race. I think we're still yet to see Max Verstappen is absolute best, which is probably a terrifying thought, I think he's going to be faced with more challenges where we will see more Hamilton esque. Comebacks. Which I'm really excited for. But yeah, for me, I think spa tips it for me as a driving performance. Yeah, it's terrifying, isn't it? With any like, you know, when it's football manager or whatever strategy you get, you assemble the best components, don't you? And at the minute it's difficult to look past Verstappen as the driver operating at his peak at the minute and the RBA RB 18 being the best car out there and then Red Bull's operations being as slickest of the lot. So you put those and that's quite the sort of three pronged attack. Luke, JBL, what did you rate of Verstappen's performance? And I'm looking at the time now and I need to wind down. I'm starting to feel guilty because we barely touched on any of the midfield, so are there any unsung heroes from the race that we need to shout about because I, as your host, have failed to do so. Honestly, Matt Q how do you sleep at night? In a racing car bed with my wife. Target, it was either that or he's going to be the radio. Is it really a wolf castle? And he's like, oh, top of a big pile of money. Lots of beautiful things. That's it. That's it. Yeah, but quite similar to say wolf in a voice actually, isn't it? Anyway, we've got very sidetracked there. Fernando Alonso, he's a driver who we spoke about the Fernando Alonso tax before and how some of his performances could maybe be over egged a little bit, but no, he was brilliant, I thought we saw in qualifying, it was a difficult day for Alpine and he dropped out in Q two, but he fought his way back up the order well. He was one of the first drivers on the move picking off both the avatars. And then yeah, that's which to the hard tyre, it was a really, really good decision by Alpine and then he bolted on a set of softs later on. There would go for a real sprint to the finish, and then he said when he saw the safety car he was like, oh no, because everyone else was doing the same thing, but I think it's come away with 6th place. I think it's a really good performance for him as a pretty close battle with Norris as well. But no, I thought I did a really good job today. Esteban ocon as well getting up into the points. He regretted that he wasn't his pace in the first he didn't get as much out of it as he would have liked, but he otherwise he reckons he could have been up there with Fernando as well. And I would also like to give a rare but welcome, shout out to Lance stroll as well because to BP ten, I thought was a really good job for him. And he was actually a bit disappointed because he thought that yeah, Aston Martin had more pace this weekend, but things, the late stage car game worked to get some little bit in qualifying. There was an issue in Q three, the men who couldn't get out. So yeah, all three of those drivers get up into the points. I think I've done a really good job today. I guess Luke has left me with shout outs for those who didn't have such a good weekend. Outfits are already out a bit of a miserable weekend and it's night and day over last season, isn't it? The car in 2021 seems so good. Pierre gasly was basically had P 6 on lockdown every qualifying session and now they're struggling to get out of Q one. It's not consistent. No points for the team. They're on, I think, 29 points. And I think Aston Martins on 25, where given their relative positions at the start of the season, that's really not particularly good. As Luke said, Lance stroll did have a very good day. And possibly could have had more, had qualifying gone to plan.

"Now how about Alpine? Alpine is tied with McLaren 31 points and if they can finish fourth ahead of McLaren, that would be a huge victory for them. Also, they're pairing of Fernando Alonso and Esteban ocon. It's going really well. They're both competitive. They're both scoring points. I'm enjoying it. Fernando Alonso is going to be 41 at the end of July. I don't know how much longer he plans to keep racing, but he's not really slowing down. And he is still competitive. And I'm here for it, man. I love love, love watching Fernando Alonso race. And he's a tough old school guy that's hard to pass. He'll yell at you. But again, I think it's fun to watch. And Fernando Alonso asked him about them. They're a great pairing right now. Our French driver driving for a French team with arkon. Fernando Alonso seems to be the driving force. They're kind of like Tom Cruise was with Top Gun: Maverick, like nothing goes on under that his approval. And I love it. Okay, Alfa Romeo, there are 6 right now in Formula One with 51 points. I find out for a male just kind of boring. They're in the middle, they got a rookie Joe grand you who is finding his way in Formula One foundry botos was actually impressed me. He took a big step down going from a Mercedes car to an Alfa Romeo car. And yet he still competitive. He actually had a couple of good finishes, 5th in Italy. 7th in Miami 6th in Spain, Alfa Romeo, they're a bit boring, but they are a decent team. Now Hass is 7th right now in Formula One with 34 points and man Haas has been entertaining to watch. They've been bad for so long and to see them get points and do well is pretty cool. And you know, Kevin Magnussen has been competitive, makes Schumacher. By the way, Kevin Magnussen wasn't even supposed to drive this year, then Russia invades Ukraine and mesa spin to keep a maze that's been mazepin really loses his spot and they bring in at the last minute Kevin Magnussen and he's done way better than mazepin could have done and very surprising.

"We'll mean that the Ferrari gets ahead. So he's realistic about these things. And that doesn't take away from what fantastic job Alonso's done. All weekend, and he was sort of, he also benefited from the sort of run plan he ended on the timings that Alpine worked out because I think in the end Lewis Hamilton, who ends up fourth just regretted he was the first car to state checkered flag. So he missed out on one extra lap of that he trying that little bit more on the track evolution factor. Yeah, because it was very much the only we saw it lap off the lap, just how much time they were gaining, particularly as it dried out. And even making some of them think about that slick switch, you mentioned that George Russell did that with, of course, get onto it. But Fernando Alonso PC on the grid, best result since 2012, I believe in Germany, I think he was on pulp. Fantastic result from him. And he's kind of been all the way through the wet sessions that he's always been updated to very well in P three as well was fastest there. We talk about L plan and everything and all of that, but was this was this sort of a sign of the older one so I guess just what he's still got and what he's capable of doing two time world champion obviously one of the greats of the sport, really rolling back the years. I'm not sure I put it to him that way because as we know he tends to give such things short shrift. Basically he was saying, you know, getting a lot of questions in the press conference people sort of trying to hope that he would say such thing, but he's too widely a campaigner to do that. And he was like, look, you know, second on the grid one, it doesn't matter because there's no points. And two, I know what I'm capable of, so it doesn't matter to me that I'm back on the front row, because I think in his mind, obviously, he's probably almost certainly sort of really alluding to this if he's in the Red Bull. He knows he's on pole position. It's always the car, isn't it? And that is true to a certain extent. But yeah, also, you mentioned topping FP three and quick in the wet. He was not been out of the top 5. All weekend, he was even in the dry, 5th in FP two, third in FP one. So yeah, he's really enjoying things out there. Basically, what he's saying is that Alpine just nailed it set up choices. It worked on its tire degradation that hopefully means can help him in the race, which we're expecting to be dry as I said tomorrow. And then also with Alonso, I think this is where you do get the sort of the wily saying things in the media point making Alonso. In press conference he was basically saying that I've been racing here for 1617 years. And that means that that made a difference. Is that experience? And now we're going to doubt him here. Of course, you know, you've got experience in anything. You're going to be better at it, but he's like, yeah, a lot of the drivers, the rest of the rival rivals, some of them never raced there before. A lot of them only a few times. So yeah, just interesting to see how we operate, but at the same time, just what fantastic result. Really, really good result for Fernando Alonso and Alpine. I think definitely one of the biggest surprises of qualifying. Another surprise, as we've touched on came the end and session when George Russell went to hell with it, I'm going to go for slicks. Your thoughts when you saw that happen? Genius or was it pretty clear that it was going to backfire? Bold cool, bold. It's a bold strategy card. Let's see how it works for him. We know what we know. It works for him. It did not work for him. And basically, yeah, I admired the optimism. And I think Georgie sort of said it afterwards. He thought back to what happened in Russia, where he was third there. And basically, if you get on the slicks early enough and you can get the heat, build the heat, and it's lap after lap. It wasn't necessarily that first lap that he ended up spinning off on. There was no even he would have said there's no chance I'm getting published in there. It's that last one right at the checkered flag. That's where it really could have come down for him. But as you and I know, Luke, because we ran the track last night, turns one and turned to just take forever to drain. It's crazy. I was really surprised, like they pull so much water. It's insane. It was really deep, but I wasn't. I wasn't risking getting my socks even wetter than they already were in the brain that was still falling as we ran around. Last night I won, by the way. I knew you were going to mention that. I was on the premise of I might do a second lap, so I was saving my pace. So we weren't actually racing, which is to compare times at the end. No, no, we're racing. Well, we didn't set up in the grid together. We've gone back to Russell we go back to what was basically that was what did you look at the replays? He's steering around those puddles at turn one and turned to, but when it all goes off, he's just too offline. The whole area is quite saturated, still very still very wet, but I said in the press conference that the whole of sector one basically was still too wet and that's why for him he said it was never on to go to slicks. So yeah, bold from Russell, but just I just think he has to be slightly too ambitious, but nevertheless, I think he's kind of right. Mercedes, just qualifying third or fourth matter for them when they're so used to winning probably not but equally there's an argument that maybe he could have been second and alongside this happens tomorrow and that would have been what a great what a great little stat what a great result to go into this amazing startup that he's had to life at Mercedes, okay, yeah, there's been no wins, but he's still leading Lewis Hamilton at a time that's very difficult for the team. So credit to Russell. Say yeah, we didn't throw anything away, but we did kind of throw something away. But nevertheless, I don't think even the team is that particularly we love the fact you made the call. Fair play on him. We back our driver, that sort of thing. So yeah, it could have been very heroic, had it come off. You mentioned Hamilton there, actually quite a almost a rare victory over George Russell's day, but it felt like he was people in a very good mood..

"Well, as we know, all eyes will be on tomorrow. Tomorrow is what usually counts, although there is rain predicted on Sunday, so we could see a bit of a mixed up race. If you were listening to the Sunday Night podcast after the Spanish Grand Prix, you might have heard Luke and I, having a bit of a discussion about Monaco, I am have not historically been a fan of racing here. I think I've described it as almost like a messy divorce between Monaco and Formula One in that Formula One has gone in a direction that's different from what's needed to have good racing around here. Now, I went trackside for the very first time and I can definitely say unquestionably, I have never witnessed Formula One, like it. It will be moments that stick with me for sure, but what I'm always concerned about is it's all well and good at saying that. We get amazing access. The experiences that you don't get at home and isn't translated at home and I know that the TV broadcast is something that is criticized a lot around monetary because it's a different company that usually takes over it's a local monegasque company that is running the world feed this weekend. So I do want good racing. I want it to be a really, really good weekend. Not just because I'm here and I would like to experience it for myself. But Luke, what are you expecting from tomorrow? The arguably the most important day in Monaco. Most important day in Monaco, but I think also one of the most exciting days of the entire Formula One season. I think that when you hook a lap up in Monaco, I say it's like I know this, but I don't. It's the drivers of who I've spoken to. They all say that when you hook up a lap in Monaco, it really is unlike anything else. It's an amazing exhilarating experience, gasly said that he can sometimes do an absolutely perfect lap, and it only be good enough for 5th or 6th. So he said, if it's the fight for pole position, I can't imagine what that buzz is like. Fernando Alonso he said he's had perfect laps here and they've not been his poll app. So it is, I think it's why you see the drivers at the absolute best and peak of their powers in formula, which is very exciting. But as you do, rightly, say, Jess, that does not lend itself to exciting race. I think that's something that we've all come to expect in Formula One over the years. We know that Monaco Sundays and maybe not the highlight of the season. But yeah, who knows a bit of rain could spice things up potentially Pierre gasly he spoke on Thursday said that a bit of rain he just thinks of 1996 when Olivier panis on Felicia, so who knows maybe some drama can strike once again, but yeah, I think that as much as Monaco Sunday may be a bit of a snooze fest, I think Monaco Saturday is one of those must watch spectacles in Formula One. It really is an incredible scene to see the drivers of the absolute limit and going for it around these streets. All right, well I will the jury's out until Sunday. Maybe you're here. Well, you will hear of it because both Luke and I will be on the review podcast on Sunday, but until then, stay tuned, we'll be back tomorrow to give you all the happenings from qualifying around here tomorrow night and until then we'll see you next time..

"And Lewis just took as long as he could possibly want to meandering slowly waiting till he pulled up and forcing max sit there on the starting grid and max has done a legal stuff like the way he passed through his Hamilton a couple of times. He even throughout the year, he's just cutting Lewis off completely on turns. The reality is that both Macs and Lewis are completely miserable to compete against. They will go to the stewards, they will make contact with each other and they're actually very, very similar, which is why I think this is so intense. If they were racing other people who maybe weren't as bull headed, but I think some of the most intense and competitive and bull headed drivers were they will do anything to win. They don't care. You got Lewis Hamilton. I think Fernando Alonso is that kind of guy and Max Verstappen. And now we got two of those guys against each other. It's gonna be the way this ends this year, it's going to be really intense and it's because they're very similar. No one's talking about that. They do. If you're a Lewis fan or a max fan, you go, all the other one is terrible and wrong and complains or does this or just add it? No, the reality is they all do whatever it takes. And they're similar, which is why it's been so intense as a year has gone on. Now, the margins are razor thin. It's been nail biting to watch because neither driver can afford a mistake or afford of anything go wrong a gearbox issue here or maybe a puncture there or you run widen to the wall. I mean, it's crazy how razor then the margins are at the end of this year. And there is a moment where max passed Lewis and it was illegal, so he had to actually give the place back to Lewis. And then max slows down to let him pass and Lewis rear ends him. And you're like, oh, no. And there are two sides. All right, Louis will tell you that max is being dirty and it's bad racing. Max will tell you so Lewis will say it's dirty driving max will say, I was just slowing down to let him have the position. Of course, you'll say it is innocent as humanly possible to get anybody on his side. Now, max actually got blamed for the collision, the FIA gave him a ten second time penalty after Saudi Arabia now. It didn't actually impact any of the race. It's a trivial move. So Lewis still won max still got second. But I thought that what really was happening there was they were trying to appease Mercedes and shut Lewis Hamilton up who was complaining a lot, talking about dirty driving consistent set. And I thought really what happened to us and it's kind of comical to blame max, although again it didn't matter, so it impacted anything, so who cares? But I thought it would happen from watching was that the FIA had poor communication between Michael Massey the race director and the two teams, they told max to slow down and give the place back and he did. They just hadn't yet told Louis what max was going to do..

"Formula One Grand Prix of Monaco. McLaren's Kimi Räikkönen starts strong. Moving from his grid position in third to knock Williams Mark Webber out of P two by the second lap. Raika in the soon hot on the heels of Reno's champion, Fernando Alonso, as he sets the fastest lap. Unfortunately, the momentum doesn't hold. If I mid race, after two frustrating last night on a safety car, raik heat shield catches fire. Burning through the car's wiring and cutting off the electricity to the engine. His hopes of winning Monaco dashed, the flying Finn is forced to retire the car. But that isn't where the story ends. Instead of returning to McLaren's garage, raikin parks his car at the sand of a corner, starts walking through the tunnel towards his massive yacht dark nearby. As his rivals continue to battle it out for the title, the TV feed cuts to Raikkonen and sitting in the boat's hot tub. His shirt off, with a beer in hand. This epic display of millionaire privilege would prove par for the course for the finished driver, who is equally known for his quiet nature and willingness to do whatever the hell he wanted. Kimi Räikkönen is one of the most beloved drivers in Formula One, a celebrated iceman with an open hatred for doing interviews and one of the most memeable personalities in the paddock. But outside of his curmudgeonly persona and incredible record, who is Kimi Räikkönen. What makes him tick? And why is he stuck it out in Formula One for so long? Considering that he's on record saying that driving is more like a hobby for me. And maybe most importantly, is Kimi F one's most underrated legend? Today I'm past gas. The epic and long as hell career of.

"He went from 20th last to 5th, and then after that, he still got another penalty. He got 5 more. I got a 5 more place grid penalty. So during the race, Louis started intent and still won. It was incredible driving. Yes, he has an amazing car. Everyone's gonna say, well, it's the car not Lewis and I don't know. I don't like I get it a little bit like I feel bad Fernando Alonso is talking about how it's hard to compete against a guy because his car is so much better than me. And I get that. I feel bad for Fernando Alonso's driving and Alpine. I would love to see what Fernando Alonso could do. And in Mercedes. But what happened last weekend for Lewis Hamilton in Brazil required even more than a great car. It was incredible driving. I mean, Louis was like a shark, just hunting down over take after overtaken it. We need like a mash up of the jaws music in the Formula One theme like done it. Done it, done it, done it. Take it out. I really want that somehow because I just every time I see Louis hunting down, he's just on the prowl man. It's so cool to watch him do stuff like this where he has overtake after overtake after overtake. And one thing that really did help Lewis Hamilton early on was a safety car that brought the pack together. He got a good start, got up up in the field a little bit. And then Yuki sonoda crashed into land stroll. Yuki cenote was way too aggressive, taking the inside on a turn that really wasn't his. By the way, there were two DNFs in this race land stroll did not finish neither did Daniel Ricciardo. But when the safety car happened because of Yuki sonoda, max was way out in front, had a big gap and was way in the lead. And the safety car slowed him down and now would Lewis have still passed max mini.

"In FP three. I remember seeing them on them. No, so they're going to want to fresh set for tomorrow. They might go medium medium hard. Well, as it turns out, you have absolutely nothing to worry about, because such a press goes. Sorry. For all the accurate branding that they've put on that Red Bull it also still says Honda on the back of it. Yeah, there's probably like some contractual. Yeah, the power unit deal. Yeah. But Honda and Acura are basically the same company as far as possible. Yeah, yeah, it's just home accuracy, American armor, effectively, I believe. Yeah, that's why accurate or the car this weekend. Yeah. It's like opal and Vauxhall. And then Holden in Australia. You've got GM and Ford as well. Yeah. So we haven't seen for stop and return to the track as our mentioned, neither Mercedes have come out onto the track Charlotte Clare, also in fourth, has also decided to remain in the pit lane. We're currently seeing Daniel Ricciardo in his lap. Not put one on the board. He's on the medium. He's got a minute left. Lando Norris who is not a small margin, either. That's .3 of a second. That's pretty much. I'd say Ricardo because you'll need to do a cooldown lap. This is the for me. I don't think he's going to make it through. Unless maybe he was just you know, it could be to be honest that watching it through the first sector, because the final sector is where you need to start faster than sonoda, who is sat in tenth in the middle sector. And they can only put his card 9th he saw them in Q one. That is that's a shock. Over Nazi who was in the danger zone, he can't go faster, Fernando Alonso here, what is he going to put his? I've just seen him put his green second executive, but it's 8 seconds off. Yeah, because he was 30 and a half seconds off. So he's he's not pushing. I think he's just gone up for a bit of a stroll here. Ofcom managed to push himself into the top ten, but Yuki sonoda has taken that place back, but we still got to see Vettel and Russell, who both have penalties on be surprised if they even they'll just be trying to get ahead of Fernando Alonso here. Which won't be difficult oxygen, his time was basically a cruise lap. Squeaky bum time for Danny Rick. And Louis, whoever's ahead of me, please don't spoil that. I'm not spoiling it. I'm still worried about that. So. Russell's probably not going to time is.

"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.

"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. 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 only have one thing to say. It's been a while it has been and after I said something about her in our text message the other day I kind. NFL to coming so acting Aliji subliminal when he put them like you know and I got through this week. I did it to myself so my battle Allen Greg question by Chad so we will continue on next from our pal. Tanner Watkins over on twitter. As do we see a potential surprise. Indy Indy five hundred entry. Ab that people aren't talking about right now. Of course Oh yeah I mean I think we. NFL question like this last week with Asher Asher and we kind of said you never know as far as nailing down like a WHO or a teamer will not. I mean. We'll just maybe throw win driver from last year. WHO's not racing enough to this year? Maybe they'll just come out of the woodwork and throw million dollars together and buyer. I'd I definitely feel like there's potential because there's always potential for somebody to come out of left field There's always the potential for somebody the double. There's there's always potential for somebody WHO's retired previously to come back or somebody who's retired from another series to come try it by Tony Stewart There's just always always that possibility with the five hundred because it's just such a big draw so I definitely think that we are going to see somebody. We had You know that nobody's talked about yet. I Guess S.. I will throw a name in the hat and will one my you. You obviously not take will be fully Massa and then the one who I think I'm sure a few. The people talked about him but Aaron. -Til it's no. He's got a little bit of funding. This year I think that is what I heard is doing. The endurance races with Lexis assists. So I would love to see Aaron. Get shot in the five hundred this year. Yep saw guy and avid spotted cow lover so Errands get dude moving on Timour here. First one is from Danny von from twitter wants no between Ed Jones Spencer big and Gabby Chavez who is likeliest likeliest to make an indycar return. Spencer Piggott I think out of the three have the most relative success out of I know Gabby wasn't in in particularly a great situation especially with the the harding ear when they were running the couple year old shocks on the car. But and I'm just GONNA leave it at that I say Gabby maybe not you know anything fulltime but I could see him possibly doing the five hundred. I don't want to say Jones owns. I agree with you too and I I don't I don't think Ed Jones bad so I'm GonNa go with it. I just I think he is Yeah quite like he's a I mean he's old. I mean I don't know I don't know I'm trying to say here. I think that because he was most recently only an indycar. I Know Jones but Jones already has a deal lined up in bega doesn't so big. It's probably still exploring an option for eighty five hundred so ominous say period as well all right so we are down to our final question and this might be fight. Possibly the best thing question we I have ever had submitted. It is going to stay anonymous but you guys have heard US mention his name before and you have it seen as tweet about him multiple times before but this person wants to.

"Guys. I thought this one the other day. I honestly don't even know why I thought of this. I was going through a bunch of stuff in my closet and came across some old racing memorabilia in so you guys are now. I don't know marketing. People Design People. Whatever whatever side of things you WanNa be here and I want you to come up with the most ridiculous item that you could sell or you know a race team or whatever that people are going to buy. I Don t shirts. I don't cousy. I have all that junk. I want something completely unique for your race team. What is it going to be mass produced Item Memorabilia once in a lifetime mass-produced? Imagine you and you're just GONNA walk up to the You know merchandise trailer at the track and back. This who doesn't want lucky underwear Ari I guarantee you. If they put Marco Andretti's phase on some underwear and said if you will were this Marco Andretti wins. Jake neely by like twenty satellite. He's GonNa buy them semi. I guarantee you might. Mom would probably buy one just that he would win her. As I mean I guarantee Marco fans would show up in droves and by those are a lucky underwear it is speaking of Marco I met. I have to send your mother. That Margot shirt that I were on the was like five months ago. Yeah listen I I get to the post office against the post office. I kid you not two minutes from my house anyway. Let's see here. I'm going to mass. Produce a really good answer matters. No chance I'm GonNa beat you on this one phone steering wheels okay. That's actually shockingly close to what? I came up with foam. I thought you said phone. I'm like where's the phone steering me? It's the new technology in INDYCAR. You can extend your steering wheel covers. So Yup we were. We were shockingly close there but I mean that's pretty you know I don't know it just seems like something completely ridiculous but people would appreciate it with the hills of phone. Steering Wheel makes no sense to me technology. I don't want underwear with Alex. Ross's face on it or anybody's face on it so once you want. Rasi space on her. I think that's a discussion for a nod family route so we will move on. Thank you just for the lovely question and thank you to everybody who probably played along with that one. Send us your best answer and we will. will tweet them out so with that being said the last bit of news before we get to our fan questions. This week is the F. Three America's Indy Lights News. Honda has come forward with a prize for the American F. Three champion stating that. They will get a full scholarship to run indy lights during the next season. So in this case whoever wins F. Three America's in two thousand twenty will be in the Indy Lights Grid for two thousand twenty one. So Matt Ingests. What are our initial thoughts? Positives negatives on this new scholarship hang. Its positive I don't have a whole lot of negatives I guess to say about this I think it's interesting. That Honda came out of nowhere with this but I can appreciate them wanting to put some people in his place To passably you know their their next big star. I guess I got a little bit of both. I think positives obviously is finding a driver. Fully-funded into jump up any lights. I think that's awesome for the New Light series. I mean it's hard to complain from that aspect of given the low car counts in recent years that you're GonNa get another driver with funding to instantly jump in. I think that's super cool. Miley negatives is that it. Kinda subverts the road to indy concept that was formulated in twenty ten and and obviously we do have drivers coming from Europe or wherever to jump into any lights rides every season anyways however they're coming with their own money versus having another series kind of at a run to the ladder. I don't know if the road was okay with that whatnot so I hope this doesn't diminish the two series below than delight series and I still hope that car council whatnot are still healthy than those those formulas affair concern for sure. It's definitely a positive. It will help the indy lights grid grow. I imagine the Rodin. The crew was in deep discussion with Honda Nf three on how to make something happen. I was wondering and I think. Rob How said this on the road to indy insider? Show that he thought. Maybe it'd be better for Indy. Pro Two thousand to kind of be the jumping point from F three to indy pro but nonetheless. I think it's IT'S. It's a real positive to grow the car. Count the F three and F for American series have been really good for drivers to who need a little extra time to develop so I. I don't see any problem with it. I think it's going to be really cold to grow that car. Count and see. Who's coming up through kyle? Kirkwood won the championship. A couple of years ago Dakota Dickerson a former road to Indian Driver won the after championship in twenty eighteen or twenty nineteen is now racing in the Michelin Prototype Challenge series so with that being said. Do we see more drivers or may have three teams using Series as a stepping-stone Danny Lights. Yeah I don't think that's unfair speculation to think that an after team may be stepping indy lights and again. That's kind of another positive Indy Lights can somehow not quote unquote steal but just quote unquote have F. Three teams expand operations into their series. That's a huge gap for any lights as well so there could be a Lotta ramifications from this one. Scholarship announcement. It's Kinda Kinda fascinating to watch. I hope it brings more people to the series and I also hope that it brings more eyeballs to the series because that will continue to help grow the car count even more because people will be willing to invest more so yeah. I think it's good. It's good I'm wondering if not only will teams use this as a stepping stone to indy lights but maybe teams say while this entire road. Indy ladder is awesome. Maybe I should venture into one of the other series which leads me to my next question. Should indy pro in. Usf Two thousand be worried at all whether it be the series as a whole or a team owners or drivers. I wouldn't see why they would need to be worried. I think this is like I said. Just GonNa possibly bring more eyeballs in more people to the series so I personally think it should be viewed as I would say fairly positive. I mean obviously there could be some things that shakeup between here and there but I I think mostly they should look at it as positive. I guess for just for me as I touched on is. If you're deciding between you know the indy pro two thousand or three to figure out what is your best bet to get into lights. Now there is discussion of which should I pick versus three days ago. There wasn't this discussion so I do think it creates a bit a conundrum for drivers on their way up the ladder and not nessim worried about it. But it's just something that will have to keep your eyes on if f two thousand drivers suddenly up and go to f three instead of moving up to indy prote- thousand. I think it say. I don't think that should be worried. I think you'll see some guys that don't win the championship but are go up from Ford F. Three in continue the improvement. You might see them jump into. Usf Two thousand or indy pro. They'll use it as almost like a lower rung type thing which we've I think we've seen a little bit. I mean Kyle quit started that way. So it's something to look into like Matt said but I don't think necessarily the sheer series should be worried. I don't think they'll be going anywhere. Although I think maybe down the line something happened. Where some sort of arena for merger with one of the lower series. I think that'd be really cool to see rob. How did mention that this week and made some good points on that one so with that being said we will jump into a ton of fan questions here. Thank you to everybody for submitting them. The first one ironically is anonymous came in to me on facebook so they wanNA know what the deal is with Carlin in Yukos racing young coast. I think might be Kinda just on but Karlin I feel like they're just kind of keeping a little things where they try to figure out the last few details but I feel like we should get some information from them here soon. But you coast. I feel like if if they do anything at all. It's GonNa be the five hundred in frankly. I don't even know we'll see him do that. You know like the wording of this question. It kind of makes me think of to middle schoolers at recess going. What's your deal man? Because I don't know how to answer quite really I mean. I think they're deal is that they're probably trying to get an INDYCAR program going but they're being very cloak-and-dagger about it so I guess I don't know what the deal is man. That was fantastic. I saw start with you in coast like justed it. Maybe they'll do the five hundred. I think otherwise you go. You'll see eighty pro and indy lights I don't think we'll see too much of them this year. Carlin I see what justice saying but I'm not feeling the positive vibes on this one like I normally do from what I've heard. They're really struggling. Gallagher hasn't necessarily been committed to the team which was their biggest sponsor. The last two seasons three seasons I forget how long they've in INDYCAR team four seasons. Okay thank you. So I'm going to say that we are not going to see Carlin in two thousand twenty. That'd be said all right. Thanks for that anonymous. Facebook question next up is also from facebook from our good friend. Marty Davis he wants to know and this is kind of just a question about N. Leases one he wants to know if teams that run any five on oil. Still have to pay the same amount of money per engine lease as fulltime entries. Or are they paraded? Just for the indy. Five hundred so I'll answer. This just can chime in if I MISS ANYTHING. But every team. Whether they're a fulltime engine or indy. Five hundred only entrant pays the same amount of money for their may only engine which is ever take fifty thousand dollars around three hundred thousand dollars. I don't know if that's changed in the last couple years since the since I saw that figure but no matter. If you're a dryer an Ryan bold or you're a team penske you're paying three hundred thousand dollars for the engines for the month of May Yep Nets that's as far as I'm aware that's still the way it works. We didn't get to make fun of my goodness question. I don't.

"fernando alonso" Discussed on Pit Lane Parley

"There are a couple of others who stepped up but only had a handful start so abu move on. I'm really not looking forward to the segment. I got my words towards your little bit. I bragged too soon. and May or may not definitely rubbed it in. Mike's face little early. This is in regards to Fernando Alonzo and in my defense. I think some petty nonsense going on here that we can discuss a little bit us. Basically what's happening here. And she hasn't heard yet is Fernando Alonzo was set to drive drive for Andretti autosport in the five hundred. Plus chance maybe doing some other races outside of Indianapolis which is awesome. What's Japan can got word of this specifically Honda in Japan? And the exact set Tokyo decided to axe the deal at the last second. Denying the chance for Alonzo to race with Honda engines in Indycar and specifically the indy. Five hundred I mean what are your thoughts and I know. It's a really kind of bummer. Armor News to hear as all that momentum was being built for the announcements. So do you guys think is Honda. Have the right to do that. Do you think they're justified in holding that grudge. So thank you for admitting that I was correct although I will say I did admit defeat because I thought there was no chance I would be right in the end so I'm and is Honda justified. Listen I get where they're coming from. I get Y Alonzo was frustrated a couple of years ago but I think they need to let-bygones-be-bygones and just move on with this. I for one am not that upset with Honda about this. I I think that they are kind of standing their ground. For lack of a better word you know kind of making him pay the price for basically speaking out against them. I mean he shouldn't probably done that.
