"It goes from Probably a podium in a definite top-five finished you barely getting points and wondering what if an it's a shame. Because i think sergio perez drove one of his better races this weekend up until that pitstop a. that he's driven all year and he's gonna be there next year because red bulls run through everybody basically But it's not days like today where it's like. Oh man we really could've gotten more there and it just didn't work out too well But i don't even. I don't really blame chaco in that. Just was an unfortunate circumstance. Timing and everything didn't really work out too. well he was in the same boat as landau So i mean we'll see what happens. Turkey i think is a better circuit for anyway I think some of these racetracks that are coming up in this. Last part of the season sue him and be the car Better so we will see what he responds within this last third of the season In regards to the constructor sham egypt because now that third place points situation is kind of iffy Bs thirty plus points behind a voluntary for third the driver's championship. So now it's really not about during the driver's championship anymore. 'cause i think is the only one that really could get get third anymore in that spot think he was genuine. Look today as far as you mentioned about about snobs. It's not the less ten laps so every could just breezed by the a terrible pitstops in that zoo so lucky for him and like you said yeah it got it got second place. That's a he last year. I think he was going to win that race for a little bit tune. Hamilton breeze by so much better circuit from coming up in two weeks time on the final point score. Today was george russell george russell in the top side. Getting a single point jared. This is getting a big bore. It isn't he's making it often in every week. Almost what is going on. He's dragging that williams into playstation obey especially Mentioned that you got third in qualifying yesterday. As well fed and qualifying any did such a great job at the start of the rice to hold up guys like hamilton. Stroh is who they thought were rising in think united. Unfortunately that's what georgia's rice Took a bit of a downturn because they shattered what strolled in the pits and ended up. Pinquater alien took him out of contention. He did come behind straw walser but then in the end coming back and finishing intense could possibly be More if landau gets a penalty for what we talked about in the pit lane but yeah he's making it a regular habit of this side. It's it's great to say absolutely Shown why deserves up mercedes drive so what. She's consistently scored points affect late to the guy seemed all consistently score points though. Acid boston are in. And i fought. That stroll was going to get some good points today after his after his megastar but it just didn't work out for them they just slowly sleep. The backend even collided with each other as well. It's a little for a time. If jones russula gues- sick place finishes so he was looking like. Who's going to do the the williams would be on the back. Filibuster ma in the constructors is not bad for them. It as it a bit worse because strong has actually picked up some points today but not the salt points. He really wants penalty points on his licence. Iowa ruby has just put in the a the slack group that we have the. He's got a ten second time penalty and two penalty. Points things Pa.

"Joy joins he walls. But yeah really good race for ferrari. I hope they can capitalize on tomorrow. I do think that will struggle to holm's opposition because if hamilton guests don't There's good chance they'll get a decent slipstream down into tune one or two. I think technically tend to now may struggle on is going to probably be thinking of the longest picture but feels Marzano sprayed so we will see. We will see in dade and louis with mentioned him twice already but judge russell you know. It's time for slakes. He said to his team goes onto. Slakes doesn't really set the timing. She alight but then when it mattered most doj russell delivered and you know pay three not even his best lap for the you know not even his best qualifying performance ever but still fantastic one and ahead of both ms eighty. 'cause you're not so a great a great so it's like the father george russell put his williams instead. Place out qualifying Eighties and it's not even his best qualifying phone to the it's like is crazy but Steady wasn't say the time she's like he was still trying to get temperature in ties. He was the first to go out onto the stuff ties. Us really pay the wage trying to get as much he into those ties and that he had the extra lap you know he had that extra up on those ties which put them in a really good window and they put three just shows that the gamble brady eight off because it was a bit of a struggle to get into q three in the first place ciba's But you go to be the you've got to be on the right size muscle Just show that. George russell is mega driver. You know he really. Is you know missile today. i mean it's going to be very difficult for him to stay there to tomorrow. You know when when you have the likes of lewis hamilton Just behind him. And i think he'll he knows that you won't be fighting the good points you know. Russia will think. Is you know. try to take too long straight. But it is very deceptive. The the amount of degrees hoods and how tight it gets not final site to just make it very difficult to follow the cause so if he can stand the points could be another points finish for woodlands to judge russell The amazing job around absolutely and just to go back to what you're saying about how sometimes it can be deceptive to take max zappin was complaining. Jerem practice yesterday that he couldn't pass 'cause adam and considering he's standing at the back that.

"Now when you're when you're calling a soccer game do you lapse into Like jargon like It seems like when. I'm watching a british announcer Every great passes a lovely bowl. Yes yeah the equalizer. Every once in a while. I'll use like probably i'd probably go too far. I'll say seventy five minutes. Gone guys really. Put himself through the ringer a so. He looks knackered out there. And and that's an expression that only people in england understand. I'm like this. I gone too far like am. I alienated my audience about using a word that no one knows what that means specifically though do you do lovely ball for a great yes. I've i've used lovely all the time. Loveliest great okay. Lovely is a great word to you. You give your top five soccer terms thank yes. Okay during the f. One qualifying race. This saturday the Team principal for williams said that. George russell raced a stonking lap. Stockade don king hell is that me sounds good though. It's good good to it. Sounds bad close to stinking. No but it's not stinking. Stonking all right. I wanna dissect christopher got so mad. He always does because he started to take based off something that he had no influence so annoyance assuming that gavin we're because he was so dominant was win these blowout games and he wasn't oh excuse me for assuming that when somebody's striking everybody out and throwing a no hitter that his team is winning and i just know you as a coach that would never take out your best player what he's dominant and if the game was in hand we will know. This one game wasn't right but he's saying became more. Gambling was in hand. They would've have taken the pitcher out earlier to save him because one day ended up losing as they couldn't use gavin weird. That's right you don't know that coaching i thing same thing. They couldn't use him in the semi-final game. Yeah into the ground that person we should be criticizing is the manager. Yeah injury so. I'm not allowed to feel uncomfortable when i see a pitcher striking out. Ninety five percent of the hitters should be impressed. Okay i just want the kid to do. I don't want the kid to do anything. Sit underhand. I want the manager to take him out conditions. But what if like this is the thing that he loves to do. He loves playing baseball. He loves pitching baseball. And this is a curse. It's entirely possible entirely possible. But let's say he loves playing baseball right. Loves pitching sure. Can't take them off the mound because you just he wants wants to keep pitching why. Tv well he's got a whole career ahead of them. I'm surprised a major league signed hinting says his career. This is potentially like a minor league. Maybe getting to mind the the minor leagues. The odds are. He will not be a professional baseball right. This is the height of his career. It's like when i goes play college across. That's it that will be the pinnacle. I right at gavin. Throw it a little slower gavin. Come on let him hit it. Don't enjoy potentially the pinnacle of your life. He's enjoying soft. Come on look adults these days. They're so soft. Lawn wants a participation trophy. If a college scou- something wrong with this generation or two This general care too much about feelings if a college scout is watching the little league world series. He doesn't need to see this kid. Strike out one hundred and forty batters. He can watch him for one inning and understand how much talent he has. There's no need to drive this kid's arm into the ground by over pitching them. That's all i'm saying back in my day and eleven year old could strike out twenty batters and we'd call him a hero and villain. We actually did it with the trouble. Connecticut pitcher talk about this. So he's so dominant right but his team's barely winning. What if there was some point shaving going on in that game and he had to keep a main because the coach was suspecting some of his hitters weren't doing their part because they may have had some of their you know milk money on the line. Thank i love how my dad has. You gotta limited pitches. They do in the literally world series. There is a limit on the pitches he can throw any grant. How many crews. maybe you're.

"It's not to come up with a rule specifically for what happens if it rains twelve hours in belgium mike in some as well by the way in august and it should be dry and let it be very clear and the regulations when they get an update. Saying monday monday it's gone it's a fallacy dreamt all along everyone. Might it up the monday grumpy. Unless it's like a bank holiday on this plan for the month. The prospect of monday grown prix is not going to happen. So get it out of your head and stop easing that as as the as the final parachute for any grumpy rising because it's just not happening absolutely right. Let's talk about the result because we should give maximum step in a lewis. Hamilton avenue sherston third pretty predictable championship gap. Now three points. But i do want to talk about george russell because he finished second first party movies korea i for williams in a long while qualified second by the way i mean okay so he finished second because there was a rising but the qualifying second pot is superb work from him and the team in terms of getting him at the right time with the track conditions. Exactly ride to deliver. What was a for brief period of time. Provisional position astronomical is the word that i would use this which is which is a welcome change from the word fast being used for us. Twenty hours absolutely thrashed. If you wanna say the word fast. I for me. This is why actually like the fact that were points. What would it. Because i think for george russell to pull that card to second on the greed second is it surely the i mean that alone is worth for me. The sort of the justification for points being awarded for the quantum quite fast fast. It's never been weaponized in these become freight i'm off sent and fun word and now it's it's as far as i'm concerned fastened Do your research or in the same boat. Yeah so for george to be able to do that and not to mention in the wake with told a wolf said yes. I've made a decision. I've opened up. An email turned off my out of office ed. I've made a call and it was quite telling when george russell pulls that kaffa paid adultery sets are the top ten but yeah truly. I don't want to believe this sort of the the bizarre other whisper going around the dress will end up at mclaren or any. It's mercedes not embezzles diet williams. Quite frankly if he doesn't go there look both mercedes. Qualify there on the white house. She'll lately right. It was a huge performance from him. I enjoyed. I did get a message from drunk. Bogin friend tonight decrying ridiculousness of the event maybe a barometer for the casual fan and the celebrations from george russell. Were a little bit over the top. I don't think sorry. I mean i can understand where he's coming from because they didn't right so i get that but i think that this and he's reaction after scoring points in hungary racists by the way with separated by whole month to score points school buds in. We both caused this weekend. Nick is well scoring some points. really shows first of all. I mean look very happy because his party but how difficult the slug has been with williams and how much it's meant to him to finally be able to deliver something for them even though you look the the team hasn't made much progress over. The course of these created has my progress from the patty low it's now a very competent team albeit still at the back but not. We're not talking like the the progress sorta so when ricardo arrived arguably became the third best team. Sit back danny. But i think that the emotion from george russell really underlying that it has been a real journey fahim. He's debut seasons with the with the sport and particularly with williams sort of starting to get better and and having hoped for the next year. Well absolutely again. There's nothing that's pretty mean. Cry joy the moment in this as in of of williams doing well which which is under new management. You're always concerned. They really bring to the table. And i think i guess with the caliber. People that they that they are bringing in behind the scenes. Obviously they're sort of preparing for the impending loss of driver a for sixty eight. They're in a. They're embellish. Than i thing i have been in. This is not just sort of i guess yes. It is flushing the pan results. Because it's not consistent enough bob. They good little nuggets for for the tame to sort of have tysoe v- some good news for once after some very very blake in dark sort of periods that team so the not out of the woods but we saw this with salva not only a few years ago where they were really in the doldrums and the the now at the stage where under new management under the alfa romeo guys but the added that design. If you know what i mean. So if for williams there they made him to stability as a team to actually exists is is fine and now it's just getting those results in and finally twenty points to them and that's that's that's so many of them in in the constructors championship that's so valuable. But it's also more than just the money as the bank. The the the the the the bursts that gives the rest of that team to sort of keep pushing and capable and just believing in in in themselves. It's it doesn't matter. What upgrades you bring until the car. I genuinely think this team which i think for many. He's culturally has always been a big question. Mark always room isn't innuendo about what it's really like to to bay with into work for but for moments like that galvanize tame and that's just awesome for williams which they so disparately nate. I think i need. This is the great reverse side of the coin about george russell williams and i think you've absolutely nailed it there. Which is that. He's been really valuable to the tame more than just being a very good driver of course and i do. I say this to talk down. Nicholas latifi either. Who i think has gotten better the but imagine williams without george russell in the last three years old standout performances that he did that made you sort of say some of the progress williams's making undoubtedly boyd the williams team as well. I've had a shocking. He's not just in terms of results but is been quite a lot of backroom tumult. We nine we say. Management changes a buyout last year. We that those high box williams. I would be a worse place on and off the track simply because they lack that sort of lightning rod result and i was going to look until it remains now in terms of the drive market..

"If we look at it in terms of the story of the season when you're talking about the likes of alpha mayor williams haas the guys that kind of towards the lower part of the constructors. This could be a game changing for them. The fact that some of the their rivals have been awarded. Even half points could be game changing for the rest of the season which then has massive commercial implications for them in terms of that prize money. So in that instance it does feel a smack of a huge huge justice really is an injustice to them and the hard work they put in butts roseby ruse we. We can't just stop changing although the to change the rules today. I guess i mean false majority when those amazing things where you can just claiming go yet crazies. Atkins dot says we can throw the robot out the window and do it. We want but you know we call it. Just do that just because it doesn't sit well with us so i don't know if it's really complicated. Had we not done it had cancelled there. I mean the the ideal scenario would have been. We turn up tomorrow and we raised smarter. But the problem that we've got is that we've crammed all these races the latter half the season. This is the first round of a triple header. We've got logistics to think about in terms of getting the circus virtues. Envelope full The next weekend's impre can't do it so do we abandon abandon race and then have a bunch of the sack promoters out of pocket because they be forced to refund tickets. all of this stuff starts happening sponsors. Don't get what they've paid for. And they start asking for money back or money on something that so many things apart of flamingo on pre the on just about the racing. And whether you're appearance in your light will autocare about all that stuff at the end of the day. What doesn't run without that. So in its current financial setup in its current financial model. It runs on that so we either have to be understanding that discourage this is a bit crap. Let's threats one side and just hope that we don't have a similar situation again and just get on with it. I think is probably what we're going to have to do. But i do think that needs to be a discussion after all of this as to whether the rules do need to be looked and whether we need to be looking at the probably had if we said i saw a few opinions on twitter in terms of well maybe what we need to look at is that it's not just three laps completed. Its three laps completed or two laps completed without the safety car. So the lead car essentially access safety cau- but at least then we've got racing in inverted commas problem with that today. Was it the visibility so bad the safety was so bad that the f. I would have been massively criticized for putting drivers at risk pre danger. They've been criticized as entire weekend for safety. There's no way that they'd have they'd have seen that through so as with so many of these events where we get these strange occurrences it makes it reflects and think about actually these rules. Correct do we need to tweet them. Do we need to change them. But i mean the fact is is that this is very unlikely will ever see anything like this again. So do we want to jump the gun on something. That is so bizarre. It's always worth a bit of a fair reflection. But i think fundamentally we got because then be the rose now. There is one big joe by opening at that. We're waiting to hear about who race next news. How much in twenty twenty two will they keep our tasks a will. George russell gave the job with wates cutting his people five from the eighties. Surely he is too good not to be on the grid next year but there is plenty of competition. There's no shortage of talent.

"Like you're saying. I missed the peak of fernando alonzo when he was one of the best drivers in the world and now seeing him come back from a couple of years away and seeing like that battle with hamilton. Just recently you gotta put some respect on the guy's name just like chris. Paul taken a team to the finals. But you're one hundred right easy theme famously difficult teammate. Which is another thing. That many civil like chris fall heavy d. A lot of people come claims to love driving them but there are a lot of guys that have not not yet that sentiment. Well okon should love it. He got a win and got his first career win. Thanks to fernando alonzo. Plan that defense. A lot of people are saying. Maybe fernando alonzo was going to be either coli leonard or lou door for the way shutdown hamilton for lyle there but moved on. Who's your george russell compares. He's come up a few times so far on the podcast so for me and this is name is already a you know. Been mentioned by some of y'all listening for me. If you're looking at george you're talking about a guy who's a supreme talent who's gonna define the sport over the next decade a person who dominated in you know the earlier in his career before he came up to the big leagues but has struggled to realize his potential so far because he hasn't been surrounded by the pieces he needs to really compete for a title for me. George russell is luca. Okay this is i think. I think he'll be luca him. I think they're they're they're greatness will coincide in fact. I think we'll probably see the two of them win. Titles when mvp's competed a very high level as similar types. no lives. While i guess a fear of mavericks fan you're then rooting for george russell. The stay with williams because if he joined Mercedes that'd be like hooking up. Lebron there on the lakers. Nobody would like that. Would that be when people look down upon that. If george russell goes to mercedes is that a thing to people worry about building a super team in formula one. It's just two drivers it no. I don't think anybody. I don't think it's the same culture around it because the the car is so critical to your ability to compete. Nobody blames a driver for trying to put themselves in the best car. I just say it's like you got the the car has to be capable. Put lewis hamilton in a haas. And he's he's not scoring points. It doesn't matter. Right is so challenge back. Yes i think it so. Nobody blames him for being. I'm going to go with and put myself in a position to win all right. I think that's a good one. We got a few more left here. Let's get to him. Why now we're having fun. Who is your mba comparison. First sebastian metal. I wrote down. Chris paul so i know that's not going to be the answer. Oh see for me here. Okay what this is. This is another tricky. One vessel is probably more achieved guy about to say. But you're talking about a guy who's at the end of his career is kinda bouncing around has chilled out a little bit but is hoping for just a little bit more of late career glory but for me the biggest thing about it is that'll has become kind of the godfather to f one. He's the guy that the all the other drivers love that the young drivers look to for guidance that they look to as almost a father figure for me that makes them a lot like carmelo. Anthony who is who is so respected by the other players in the league. I think in the same way that bell is. I think that's really good. Shirley melo would love to have four titles just like metal..

"Over doing very very well. I want to jump in we'll talk about formula one right now. Formula One is making a change. They are adding something called Sprint, qualifying, and man. It's going to be using three races this year in 2021. The first of them seem to be in silverston in the UK. That will be July 18th next Sunday. And so here's how about a normal race weekend goes for me, qualifying is on Saturday. The race. The Grand Prix is on Sunday. And qualifying determines the starting grid for Sunday's race the big race on Sunday, you know, this, if you fall from the one at all, and I do not normally watch very much of qualifying. I record it, I record everything in the sports, all they got YouTube TV, it's amazing that unlimited DVR. So I record qualifying and then I watch maybe the last three minutes of Q3 if it's off if it's close like to see who the top ten are for the starting grid. I've also recently been watching a lot of cute too. Like I watch the end of Q2 as well because I want to see if George Russell makes it into Q3 and how it happens. He's usually been like 12 to 11:10 to 8 to night like right at the kind of right at the edge of the top ten. But for the most part, I don't watch qualifying. I watch the end of Q2, sometimes in the end of Q3 sometimes it's just not a draw. But I mean, sometimes in the past I have even just read the results. I mean you can find the list online. Hey, Max was first Louis. Second voucher botas 3rd. June. Find that pretty easily actually, sometimes it's more accurate than watching cuz the guy will get a grid penalty and you won't really find out what the starting grid is till four hours later. So watching qualifying, the traditional qualifying actually is either boring unhelpful or not that interesting and I love racing but that's not really racing. It's just like it's like a time trial..

One of the disappointments for the session was that of daniel carter who was only thirteen in the second mccower and was estimate alcon. He failed to make out of key one amazon seventeenth to as always. I am joined by alex. Kalinowka orcas sports x. one. Alex how are you doing very well. Thanks yes Yeah an interesting qualifying session for the syrian grand prix in keeping rabou. A hates on home turf but i didn't. I'm not sure if i really expected that. Fb three where lewis hamilton. Suddenly back head and you ever stop and go traffic. And you know it was a bit disruptive but you think things are going to be really close again. And then and i max max Breeding away and hamilton left out that his car just wasn't feeding his good. Use a bit surprised nina. Why but yeah just said. Fb three you saw a neat. Thank you three. And he just knew he wasn't up to it so yeah sets up a pretty good race tomorrow because i think the trend has been the reps fostering qualifying On the mercedes fractionally foster in the

"At a alpha's laughs our next year if you offer mary. Sponsorship doesn't carry on if that sort of linked with ferrari closely macquarie's is seventeen. I could be ho- sal chinese he could be ca- comeback under a different name salvadorian return. It could have a different engine partner. Lots and lots of things could be different. Yeah i think there's definitely opportunities but it just needs other things to happen whereas if you look at things just on paper at the moment it's all there on a loss loss out there but give point you've got not see kevin and i took my but anyway. He's an excellent one cipher but actually either realized jabe day because that the caveat is we don't really quite know. where did you ever nazis. Because you don't know where rockin and is in his downward slope so it's almost like someone made that point to you you did. You did indeed my that points but if you think that raccoon was passed and we know that rocket policies best at ferrari because vetter was kicking his backside most time as i repeatedly mentioned until i got rid of him not taking credit for the driver change by the way because it would much suit if is down to make. But he's done a very good job in. Alfred's been he's definitely been worthy of the grid the rest of it but how much time giving away to the optimum. We don't know that means we don't know quite how good you ever nazi is now is on top of rock. And so if if he stopped both that call you know this is a guy that can usually qualify william tenths of a second of lewis hamilton. Normally okay so he's raised management east. High preservation isn't gray. Which i think he's probably what kimmie does bring them. But yeah. I think. I'll do think the batas deserves to be on the f. One grade. I think we've all seen probably enough of the the sort of status quo art night so happy together mercedes. We want to see that mixed up a bit. That's the nice nice way of Bring us back to address. So give a lovely tangent but some is wanted kept. What did you make of his thoughts about about louis. Really because i was really interesting and it really struck me when i read the quite back through and the feature was that he brings up louis completely unannounced. I ask him about his future. You know what's latest of your understanding. And then he gives. It's very very very very low. Answer and at the end of it you just guys you know. I think it's pretty is talking about staying around. I didn't. I didn't mention louis any point so i just thought that was a really interesting thing that he's thinking about. Maybe he wanted to say or we'd been told that but it just found interesting so what. Yeah what did you make his points about us are really like i thought that was really good. He's basically say yeah he's basically said he thinks he's good furloughs hamilton hanging around and all the time is operating is very high level. He wants to be the best and to be the best. You've got beat. The best and lewis is the best. And i think that's absolutely attitude to have think it controls quite nicely with a certain other leading if one name recently saying oh. I don't have anything against louis. I don't care for win. I will come on. Of course you date you you do want to be the best. You want to wait for the goal to retire before before you go in you. Chapman shetland and of course also helped would help. If he's in the same car. Josiah will get a very good idea of where he's at and where he needs to improve so he can use being alongside. There is to improve his own game so our answer was absolutely spots on an east. Yeah i i agree wholeheartedly. There's a whole other focused in analyzing the different attitudes of the young up and coming drivers. You've got channels declaring. Who is maps a bit. T one eastern occasionally. Max who will he will give you nothing. I found anything just Just just shut down single minded focus and george russell paps. Pats floats around a little bit between the two but he gave back gives. Excellent answers and in the future comes across. Set comes very interestingly. I'm taking a for year carpool question. Which is the exact same question. I posed at this point of minds. View with george rosso di thing he can beat lewis hamilton. He'll need to interested interesting. How was that. If gets the mercedes seat for twenty twenty two. If both houses may decide and george gets us twenty twenty so we'll be nothing of the you know expecting him to just learn from lewis get dialed into top team. Obviously he's gonna come in. And start the season gary out. Now i just want to learn and obviously orbis will be off because he'll try and beaten. I don't see gang on much further than that personally. I obviously i'm just cooling it from the outside in but i think we're getting to the end of his career. Now he's not going to do it can be reichen and just hang around and collect a paycheck. Your he's someone who likes his mind stimulated and he wants to do other things and if he's not if he doesn't find these twenty cars particularly challenging than he'll go and do something else and then in that situation. You would expect george to become are the number one or max latino come into the team and they'll have to be each other so i. I don't think you'll necessarily need to be possibly kurd all the end. They're a team that raises very interesting. Point actually is the men. Say the is louis. Twenty watt mentality. Come come in with you know. We're a long way away from stirling moss coming in happy to spending a season alongside fan and found jodi with a win. Basically fangio doing the winning. But i don't think it would would mercedes. Allow it because of the the background with george in tokyo. Would they allow it to be a fernando alonzo lewis hamilton. Two thousand seven mclaren. They basically gave away a world championship because they let their established world champion. Have to fight tooth and now they're rookie us. Sometimes there sometimes no Ferrari create through nikki of them. You know hopefully red bull or somebody. Several teams perhaps will be close enough to mercedes in two thousand twenty two that they can't let them get on with it and and have a rospa hamilton. Top situation so. I think that's very interesting. Toto trying control. That does george source of play. The game knowing that are but george lewis is gonna retire next to you and your on number one or does he just guy approve myself. This more one child in a car guy lewis. I think that'd be quite interesting interesting dynamic and probably if we're honest you know if you're if you're if you're top doke like george wants to be he's gonna go eat gonna go off the lewis if he gets off adults and they think he's ready to pay my across across the whole season yet and as i do the things i love about sport for millions valley really applies to is just the the mindset of these athletes in the single minded focus and determination and what they're willing to it just doesn't it doesn't compete with what the ordinary person on the street and you're right kevin and jay how we think about things like five wins and comes second behind lewis. Hamilton is twenty twenty ship. That sounds excellent whereas georgia's russell not necessarily the way he'll say because they just they just they just they just.

"That would suggest otherwise what we talked about before then loss. You've you've throat. You throw the march and the point about being demanding in a team at that is not anything you either. How many great drives have we heard that about us. Part of okay. So the way you do it can be important. Some drive more abrasive than others. And i think probably you get more experience you get older more mature. You probably gap it more clever and sophisticated in the way you do that. You know that the the great drives our leaders and of is going on need this. This is what we need today to get to here. And if you deliver on if they do that change and then negro and deliver. Not the teams. They've light working with the engineers and mechanics lot working with finance lonzo. Even though he's a pain politically for the team. Bosses is if he says do x. And i will go faster. He delivers in the more often. Need everyone distrust your feedback it becomes a virtuous circle. Lead so yeah. I'm pros knew what we wanted from. A call center was very demanding. Nauseam answer wanted specific. Setups we know how important mark shinmachi was in his team. So i think that's just a might make it could at times you're going to have awkward moments where you know you do end up with a shouting match. But ultimately that's what you want as a in in a champion not just in motor sport. I'm sure in many walks of life and sport. And i also told you about that. Netflixing lost to convict him in in last august and he basically said you know it's something that he's picked up from from mercedes jeannie and in two thousand eighteen when he was winning overseas in petty with the team races tested them and he seen how to how to deliver the feedback. That's needed to to get the car to go. Forwards and i think that's that's a really that's a benefit of that broke down that he's been on. I'll give you a counter example. Speaking to mark williams ex mclaren engineer when he worked with iraq and they tried a particular steering setup or power steering system or something different and they put it on. Well i didn't like it. And i didn't like it. We're not my previous team. And he's like well. Why didn't you tell us that you tried already before we've gone through. This whole process of doing is not enough feedback in demanding is the oil mentioned something once and then if it happens it happens and if it doesn't get on with so yeah that silvery we'll be laid babich getting what you need to do the best job that's not. That's not good so so yeah you can go too far the other way they indeed which is the furthest question at you. Maybe that's the way you make me boy. George russell good in qualifying because really really interesting for me. When i was back in the sidebars in terms of fem russell results so through twenty twenty one so far is just going back and watching looking at things. Like for instance in bahrain. The preparation laps for nappies. Slowly as possible so you do not these precious it and they'll give up tunnels towards the end whereas in other races. Put him out for example. It's you drive quite hard. Made me for to get them. Actually switched working so the rub is moving around grip. But that's one part of their. I'm sure but yeah. Why do you think he's so good. In qualifying agree with on the laps. They become very very important with these peretti. Ties is not full mid one in the past where you could you know go out. Tear everything out about tyrod. Lapin you need to be very very delicate. And i think that's what george been good at our three about this hungry twenty nineteen example again A he felt he got the preparation for that absolutely spot on. And that's how we go into key to with to read for car. It looked awful and it wasn't very good on the track. Either i think there's something appeals of his meticulous nature in that you need every single little bit right each get hit. The apex needs to hit the throttle. This time various other provinces and things like that and i think that's just something that kind of appeals to him Obviously we know that the williams struggles in the racist But also you know with with us little bike without sensitivity In qualifying as fewer calls around you. And you can kind of you have the space to solve strut your stuff and express yourself a little bit in that car And i think you know with the i can imagine. Being at the back of the grid is a little bit frustrating. And it's that time of the weekend. Were george can really show what he's got. I think he enjoys having the platform. If you like. It becomes a self fulfilling prophecies again as well. doesn't it because loss. Sport is confidence. And it's a mind thing. And the more that george has great saturday performances and gets cold mr saturday and all this stuff the more things. Yeah i can pitch gain it it just it just bills that momentum and confidence which is probably why. He was so irritated. To miss powell against batas in sake because you are just i could sit there for the taking. He didn't do it guy in these these. These guys are very harsh themselves. And there'd be honest with themselves and go. I could have done x. or y. Better and it's looking for these miniscule mountains which is what which is what lewis hamilton has been doing for years and years definitely a lot. I didn't think you would pass being little too hard on himself. They're considering just how close are sometimes runs hamilton. Qualifying i think rapid over that wasn't we indulge in a bit of speculation about what might happen at mercedes and several other teams in twenty twenty two and say peer speculation. That was fun. Not so that's what we're here. For to dissolve societies could be the most interesting thing why no understanding is obviously essentially by seats ripen. A mercedes at the time of recording because lewis ounces on a one year deal after you bought us get another one year deal. I think you probably have an option on continuing with him. Russell's contract is coming to an end williams than you've got esteban on inside. He's junior now. It's pain but retains ties or informally in a way contracted oversee. The contract without pain comes first. Then there's the wildcard element of still you know the even before the opposite thought this season that's remains about. He's trapping gonna end up in a mercedes of lewis. Hamilton were think federal of hammonton stays and max him to this series tied to really seemed jumping ship from and i. That's very very unlikely. Even even a even any consideration. But yeah i think Yeah i think that signings these boiling down to a choice between. Let's assume blue stays on. I think he's he's making noises about continuing that. I think i think we're expecting a shock retirements. I think he'd probably at the very least wants to see what twenty twenty two like with. The new cars mercedes with their were. Formerly one is like because he's often talked about what's good and bad in terms of the current formula racing and being able to go without driving. Probably at the very least have a look and see. I'm not going before. Starting his longtime feature equally. He's he's also talking about doing two along with sadie so if he sticks around think mercedes faces a straight choice between keep the lineup. The delivered what seventeen eighteen nineteen twenty potentially now five times in a row wins this double us. We've both aspects. He doesn't stabilize the team. Lucky easter with with nico rosberg or does it look to future pref- team by bringing muscle up even if that means putting him alongside. How risk being a little bit more fractious between the two drivers i think. That's that's that's the most logical thing that would happen. And i think also. I think that's probably what most people want to happen. I think formula one. The british grand prix promoters. You got a most fines and know is important to consider us of british perspective. Although week endlessly is not nationalism care on anybody accused of favouring charleston. Clara five minutes. But he's obviously not british but you know it would be good for lots of people to see that as up now the upcoming british star in that mercedes team going on against these the incumbent th. There's so many narratives that work. Yeah i mean. I put nationality wants to one side. You want to see the best young drivers in the best cars and Yeah and having the chance to fight for championships and racist so yes definitely. We'd love to see fans. Were definitely love to see george in the car. I'm sure and as you say it would be help sewer stonebridge gone pre british most bought generally but also i think as fans like things to be different. You're really wanting to sign drives in the same cars or will the time and i think is very good race android. I'm doing a little bit work. Actually the moment for pace later in the year which is assessing number two drivers and really want you want to be in the golden zion of you wanna be going somewhere between sixty and eighty percent of your number. One dr tally. Which any more than that. And you've got to number ones and you've got the slovak mercedes had we nico rosberg hamilton. Any less than that. And you've got a phenomenal.

"Investment people being appointed. They're going to find that part but that was happening even before dollars in capital from the williams family. Twenty was better things. So how how. Much of a part do you think he's played in. That i think needs to do is take a little bit of step back to what he was like in junior categories because the way that mercedes prepared him for life and on the way that you worked with his f. t. missile very very important with what he's been able to carry forward one. I don't remember the. I think it was like the star twenty eighteen season. Aol t found. George be very very so almost exacting. He wanted perfection and nothing less and they will. You know jacket can so much easier to work with. But come the end of the season. And george is the one. That's of the title by about sixty seventy points and eight. Can i think he finished like p eleven p twelve and championship and the two been very close in. Gp three year before. I think it's just that way. The george works. It's very methodical. And he's nor freight to keep people working harder if he's still thinks there's something on the table You know you go through the paddock late at night on an empty race we can. Because that's that's that's how it would be. And you'd still see the lights on in the air t garrett in people getting through acer and whatnot trying to find final little bit especially on thursday night or friday off qualifying just to see what you can find the race. There were lots of different examples of when george had issues and he was able to come back for the win the title by a margin and he's been able to bring that into williams and having spoken today robson in the past. Some sure that you've spoken to today before as well. Alex de very very happy to have him that because he pushes the team. He doesn't do it in a way. The either that was that fall out in two thousand and nineteen where roquette came into the team and everybody by sliding the car from the media. And whatever george able to give them the rights of persian the rights of ideas and that sort of thing and when he had that mercedes driver us. This is giving me ideas like can take to williams with me as well perfect sort of team driver in that sort of sense indeed. It's a good point. You make about the mercedes drive because he talks about this quite a lot. But he's ebays guys. I now know what an amazing car can do. So i know all these things on reporting to you. I know that i know that they're in. There must be a way to get there. So it's not a real benefit of williams loaned him out because it wasn't wasn't guaranteed that he would have caught secure grumpy driving negotiations. Take place in order to release him to do. That is very unusual situation for for both the teams and but it has times boop benefits for williams. And you know you just able to to see to to explain to them. How karsh being developed. Adding forward into the future is wanting to say to saito listeners. What jake's referring tear out sort of russell's demanding reputation which is very very well as a perfect illustration of you know. Think the second season of netflix's drive to survive where they filmed the williams guys. I guess at the twenty nine hundred british kwame brady. There's a debrief where russell as a rookie is basically tearing into the teen expanding about how. How awful the ho- sensation was presume. Apache session is kinda mentioned. It like it was the race but he probably wouldn't have been. And if i think robson myself just goes okay. Thanks a lot of a of that. Was that was an honest feedback. George which is obviously what he's like in east asia makes really really really good tv and kevin. I think you've you've you've appointed surveys. But i just wanted to say maybe maybe once you've made it. I think you've got you won't need quite like to point out. Williams wasn't there. Seven hundred and fiftieth for one star in one. Let's do that i. It was a think they're they've sent out a list. I sent you a listeners. She folded on which claimed they call that they ran. Ninety seven was a williams fort. Of course it was a march that frank williams had bought and ran under williams reengineering so it counts in terms of the starts for the team. But i think that being a little bit cheeky to try and claim that was a williams car. Think think there be some march receipts. Probably still hanging around with with. Patrick has in frank william somewhere that would suggest otherwise what we talked about before then loss. You've you've throat. You throw the march and the point about being demanding.

"You know. Sometimes you struggling. When i'm putting the cover fifth because the cover together for these these features sometimes you can arm really struggling to find one single quote balcony on the cover to go with this. This one had four possibilities. So i think it's a really good interview you are you either. You either wound him with your questions where he was distant particularly good mood either way. Yes some good stuff there. I would say on combination combination of the take initiative. I did i did Encountering in need it was great being back. you know. We've made a lot of the solutions of meetings for difficult for us to do jobs in terms of getting in the panic and speaking to people. And it's just remarkable. What difference that makes chatting to george impersonal. As opposed to you know obviously mckay are socially distance measures wearing anything like that but it just makes such a difference. You get a sense of how someone's feeling and what they're going through and the point in in the pace he. He came across so well in all chopped the harbor in monaco that almost beggars belief a month ago. What happened in email happened because that was reading quite shocking monument. Not the crash. I think we have to take the crash out of it to a certain extent because he was just a racing incident it was you know he he would have been worse really. I think if you hadn't gone for that maybe it was just unfortunate that it went wrong with hitting the wet track is as the track and benz around towards number. But it was what happened in the gravel trap going up and confronting batas that even being someone george for few years i just i was just like i was like is he to. Is he going to check on him. Because that fits much more with george russell that were you know. But then when i started having the big argument and both nas keeps in. The guy was a bit like laps. That's a misstep. And then he comes out in in the tv. he's often. he's not like oh hands up. That was a racing incident. You know you just flat out like the things he was saying. you know. rupa that if if it wasn't we racing against things. I was really like whoa hanging second. This could go wrong for you. George almost didn't he talks about tysun wolf giving him some tough love on their flight. Home from imola makes the point very very clearly and he said several times now that are much better in terms of their relationship. It's in the past that moved on. I don't talk about it anymore and whatnot but that really felt like a ooh. This could be something that could stop you getting a mercedes drive in georgia. It's gonna it's gonna play on people's mind is going to be a factor in the decision and trying to monica. I think that never happened to him. It was really. It was really really interesting. Let's go back to your point about about about the fact that the williams car he does qualify it very very high up when it comes back in the race. And i think there are lots of people out there. That sort of you know for for one phrase. They don't get the hype around. Russell don't racing because if he's like a racist what do you what do you. What do you counter to that. Because i think that's that's not how we perceive in not the feeding the most people have without russell. But what would you say to those people. That are so adamant that he's not very good. Just because he hasn't gone any points and williams. Well wait until we see minimus. Ivy's oh wait. We haven't he would have won the race sir twice Yes i mean you know you're always going to have whichever draw always gonna have a certain people he for whatever reason. Don't think that that is good at everyone else. Says or whatever. I think that we've seen enough now. He's one every level on his way up sometimes with quite you know all stacked against him at times i'm sure. Jbl remember some of the issues that that your toddler release car in the ftc's in you know and he's he's always bounced back so yeah i think he's. He's all the other drivers know who was. Are we know that when hamilton retard. We're going to be talking about verstappen declare norris russell pretty i think you so to say it but i will just just going back to that imitate. I'll agree everything you say. It's a ca- some people. I said he shouldn't even gone for the move. And i think he had so much more momentum there any racing driver would have gotten to the outside their where possibles the mistake he made within the move was that he thought was coming across more than he actually did so he then went further to the right and he should on that going on the wet patch. Staying cool saxton. I was very surprised about his history action. But i'm not that surprised that he's moved on the side mercedes because actually the way the reason it has been so successful in recent days because they they identify problem they solve it. They move on. There's none of this is your foreign backwards and forwards on shorto just had a very frank discussion with george george to think about it and then moved on as well because i think that's how he's wide so i think he's actually a perfect fit really he. He said that they flew high same flight. Together with james. Allison as well one can imagine a sort of good cop. Bad cop situation going to maybe tearing into jordan. James allison baps pat slightly more gently reinforcing. The same points with that of course is is pure speculation and another bit speculation. I was wondering. I wanted to throw right now. I just wondered whether the father he he's confident and he- he's talking in the ways has already gotten paid he's deal. It's not beyond the realms of possibility that i it's going to be we're gonna come onto this later on in terms of of what what's happening. What could happen in the future. Within said's we don't know what's going on. I thought i just it just struck me as a. Here's someone who's very very at ease with himself. I wonder why. I mean you could. You could easily be the fact that you know. He's a young racing driver. Monica and having a great time i can equally as well be but anyway jake. Wh- what do you make in terms of The paul george played in williams. Recent revival was that he's not massively fast but is on an upward trend..

"In for for the longer longer. Stints i've also been impressed with the With nicholas tv is obviously goes under the radar. He does get a little bit of a bad rap for being one of this wave of canadian drivers with rich. Stats if you like. But he's incredibly affable. He's continuing to learn an east getting closer and closer to russell when east east not ever going to be grateful to onedrive driver. I think in comparison to his teammate is doing a very good job so they guessing there. It's just that final push to get over the hurdle one get a p nine or a piton or something as just kind of what is needed. Yeah i must admit my not. Not belief is a bit strong but my just my thoughts about george waved slot into twenty and because of the hadn't scored a point not so much that robert we had interning because we won't have that was just a crazy rate. Yeah that's how it happened but this kind of making mistakes in traffic in the is the carrero sensitive in traffic. Seems to be. But there's no other way of checking that really. I'm speaking to derek. Warwick is a big george russell fan. Yeah the chairman of the dodgers on the award. And he's in my ease the stephanie's teammate. And he's doing he's doing everything to expect it. Now you're out. You're then he got the mercedes drive lewis hamilton getting in caves and proved the point not only in terms of level driving our ability to race when mercedes had one of their annual we with forgotten what to do in a pit stops. Boss has had monaci recently. That a shocker. In germany tony ict. I've won one race every year. where they just. They're absent in the picks and they chose the way george in the car but at least gave him the opportunity to then show his racing skills and eight people go. We'll away with butter. So yeah i think in the way that george in your piece addict says that kahn just convinced him yes he was doing a good job because you could see where he's leveled in a front running car. I think it did for everyone else as well. We now know we know for sure. The georgia's these good enough. We just thought he probably was prior to that race. Definitely i think just just on on williams. And the that's of the qualifying race results imbalance and pay imbalanced car. Has i think there's a lot to be said about. What's going on with the tires. Let speaking to the team. They took is remains a sort of pseudoscience in terms of getting ties exactly. Why didn't you saw that in the monaco. Quantum pre lewis hamilton is not office economic audi boss ass and finishing seventh when brought us is finishing second. Just like us is very good. We just know east much better and it didn't come together with the tires and a team as good as aids was not of course massively and amundsen as well and i think there's a lot of that going on with williams. I think the pace of the car still is better but it's not great. I may also being lapped seniors. You have to back off and lose that tire temperature goff lawyer and things a lot really does does not the drivers out of whack in terms of keeping those crucial parameters imply and also remember. It's it's one thing hanging onto an awkward car on fresh tyres for one lap to just absolutely hanging out and stick it somewhere hop on the greatest court and now to try and maintain that during the whole course of erases the tells guiding often will right. i mean we most most famously. This was the arno truly thing. Wasn't it yeah the tutti trained thing but actually really that was just a function of qualifying. The car probably higher than it should and then in falling back into its kind of average pace in the race. And i think there's probably a slightly sort of further back smaller version that going on with we with jordan williams and in obse factor in the fact that it does seem to be unfortunately seems to be a car. That's abyss ero sensitive and in a position where it's always if it's ever gonna get report is going to have to be in that midfield pack so yeah quite quite tricky one but i think. Jbl said they've moved. The team has moved forward a lot in the last two years so that definitely heading in the right direction but they all still nineties to centuries and but very very coast from a in terms of the the average gap across the season. He's really he's not close by alpha's as we saw. Monaco is make where where williams hasn't and you raise an interesting point there about you know russell qualifying the car probably higher than it should be and then coming back to where it should be right. Let let let's touch on that point in in a little while because e that ties in quite importantly with everybody's perception or look superior she say lots of people's perception russell and performance and how good he is. And because what did you make of inch is kind of weird for meter to. I pose the question to he did i get. I do a good job. The russell come across them no on fishing for compliments or anything. But you know some yes. You did a good job. Yeah now i think they might think the thing that makes it. Yeah i think it's one of those cases where you get you get good.

"Facebook podcast. Welcome to our latest episode. Which latest accompaniment perkasa this week's autosport magazine. Once we not recording ultra press day has ended and we even doing this during working hours for change which sadly means no accompaniment averages alongside our chance but how does chief editor kevin china field today after awesome. I was gonna cost wiki. Jonathan neighbor well described looking while the frazzled. I can say that that we're using to see each other you. You definitely not shop. If i if i d say say myself kept thanks very much. Yeah he was right. I did look very frazzled. I was quite shocked. When i opened the when i looked to myself on the laptop but samyong subsequently had a heck and shave and as you say. It's not suppressed days on approximately fifteen years. Younger than i was for the financial alonzo and as you say june. The day you can look it's daylight the only disadvantage is. There's no bear on my desk. I think yeah. I think mayday bear on days. Probably a very bad idea. So that's when we get back to the office one of your famous from apart from where we have a kevin turn all sport lunch in which case all bets are off a long for those days i will i let. Let's get on that and other coverage this week is all about one of formula one's up and coming drivers williams racer and mercedes junior at george russell. He's been in the headlines a lot lately thanks restoring driving place of lewis. I want to empower rain australia. And of course his infamous crash voucher batas in the season's race imminent before we get to russell's twenty twenty one so far and discussed the which i wrote. Let me do. My second guest is also sports. Technical editor great books leg now j. You've got some experience working with george russell fold. So how do you know george yet. Another back in when i was after his press office stories. So obviously that year. When i was working there in georgia just come up from gp three striving for bart and he was one of the tri factor of british slash. Anglo-thai drivers that were at the top of that year's championships. Those him landau and alex will like the main protagonists about years. Taito vassal and obviously by pas across with george since But this has been a lot more of a sort of official capacity rather than the old press of gt's of trying to create online magazine content by asking for breakfast each day and how many pillows he took two races with him as just the one. He's a one pillow one pillow racing driver. I mean that is inside. You don't get anywhere else not depend hotel. That actually take pillows that with their sleep. There must be some logic he brings. He brings his own. He brings his. This is one of the few things. I learned from All of this of inane. Pr questions is george. Russell brings one fin pillars races. I mean it does sound like madness and to ask about it for pr. He's obvious man but there is lottie to look like cycling teams. Like they bring home mattresses and pillows to stay in different hotels every night to advance with george talley or something and as because sleep is important athletes. And that's what they're they're just trying to minimize the risk of like a bad night's sleep we all know when we've been away to cover racing things like that. The hotel was never really assured of that quality. Most of them. 'cause absolutely lovely but a bad pillow can still make a bad night sleep so i i do. I do i d full of logic massively off topic already and how far. How far do you go with to address away. Insects quickly as well just to say that he was actually one of the very first racing drivers. I f. I interviewed also sports. It was the head of the twenty. Fifteen twenty fifteen season morons coveted covering for me to form british gt. He was the reigning champion. Having won the bureaucracy. Four which now have three in two thousand fourteen. I was giving number to call him up and to help to do my season preview piece which was very upset when covering me nuts. Two thousand seventeen when he won three. So yeah a reason you about george bush about you. How do you name. Yeah really goes back to the end of that season in dc four. I think i did go to one of those rounds but really got to know george better when he was a fine least in what was then the mclane old sport bayer. Dc awards now asked him out in one that point. I think he was sixteen. He was the youngest of he was the youngest finalist that year. One of the youngest ever immediately struck really is as just hamma cheery was an. You think this guy is this the some some years you think. Yeah there's some good drivers might make. It might not all. This is a particularly strong year. And i think that the two that really stood out to me. Because i'm fortunate enough to been a judge since two thousand and i think the two that stood in recent years are all george russell. Nine nine sounds yummy. Of course you would say that because of hindsight but yeah remember having chats with the other judges ganger these these these two we expect to make it. He was so mature and so on top of it and yeah i think he's pretty much maintain that all the way through it and he's really change much. He's just added experience. Really which which is. Exactly what william say of him in his two off years apetit. Myspace bites davidson monaco. About how they've seen georgia unless that's exactly what he said he's like he's he's basically the same as he was. He's just more experienced than that for has progressed that bit further quarter we make russell and william so far in two and twenty one. Because it's been interesting season in the getting better. They are close to the front that very far from wearing twenty thousand nine hundred nineteen which is basically what is at the my the times three seconds off the pace is really shocking was the has this season but williams is getting better but at the same time. It's a bit late last year. Qualifying tough in the races and so far there one opportunity. They've had to score points. Went wrong with us. Crash site how. We racing the team. In the driver's i saw impressed. Every year george continues to elevate that level and he went from. I think one one not key to appearances in twenty nineteen which arguably was one of the more impressive things to do it in that car to this semi regular appearances lost year. Now doing it absolutely regularly this year. It's just it is annoying for from that standpoint. the they just can't continue to solve executing the races. The car doesn't seem to be dialed in for for the longer longer. Stints i've also been impressed with the With nicholas tv is obviously goes under the radar. He does get a little bit of a bad rap for being one of this wave of canadian drivers with rich. Stats if you like. But he's incredibly affable..

The History Of Kayfabe
"Earned. Modern professional wrestling began back in the early twentieth century. When carnivals would put on catch wrestling exhibitions this was real wrestling. The competitors were actually wrestling with each other and there would be prize money to the winner. The wrestlers would often competing against locals. Who would win a prize. If they could defeat the carnival strongman so they really did have to know how to wrestle and fight. Unfortunately many of the competitive matches were really boring the bouts rough and nothing more than wrestling holds. Which could last for over an hour watching grown men grab each other for. That long really wasn't that entertaining. The whole point of carnival wrestling wasn't terrestrial it was to make money. Eventually the promoters figure out they could sell more tickets if they made the matches more interesting and that is how started the word k. Fame but self comes from kearney. Talk which is a pig. Latin type of language which was spoken by carnival workers k. Fehb just means fake. As the carnivals began predetermining the winners of fights it was a shortstop to adopting the tropes which were used in all good dramas good versus evil heroic comebacks treachery and betrayal. All of those became part of professional wrestling in order to put on a better show and sell tickets. However at no point did they ever say that the performance was predetermined people had to think they were watching illegitimate competition. So a bad guy and a good guy couldn't be seen together before or after a show the head to commit to their characters all the time. This is the primary difference that separates k. fehb from acting actors perform role and. Everyone knows that they're watching performance in k. Fehb the performer is living the role even when they're not performing and they're trying to convince the audience that israel for decades keeping cafe was the single biggest rule in professional wrestling. It was the wrestling equivalent to magicians not. Divulging the secrets. The primary care mechanism was having baby faces which were the good guys in heels which were the bad guys. The bad guys had to be bad guys all the time. If they were asked for autographs by fans at an airport they would often refuse to sign an insult. The fans just to keep k fehb when wrestlers travelled between cities heels and faces would often have to travel in separate cars and stay in different rooms. Just to keep k fehb. They would even have different locker rooms backstage. Occasionally they would screw up. Wrestlers would get in big trouble if they broke k. Fehb in one thousand nine hundred eighty seven. The iron sheik. Who was a heel was traveling with. Hacksaw jim duggan. Who has a face. They were both pulled over and arrested for possession of marijuana and cocaine when the arrests made the news to cause controversy. Because these two guys were supposed to be enemies yet. They were traveling with each other on rare occasions. A wrestler may go off script and try to really injure another performer. Any sort of predetermined match or storyline is called a work in wrestling circles. And something which is real or off script is called a shoot in two thousand and four for example. The wwe was running a reality show where the contestants compete to become professional wrestlers. One of the contestants was daniel putter. Who is a real life. Mma fighter on an episode of monday night raw wrestler. Kurt angle issued a challenge for one of the contestants to come out and fight him. According to the script putter was supposed to come out and quickly lose however he decided to actually fight for real on live. Tv when angle wasn't expecting it. Putter tried to put england submission hold instead of losing however kurt angle is a real life olympic gold medalist in amateur wrestling and would have none of it. Technically fehb died in professional wrestling in nineteen eighty nine. When vince mcmahon the owner of the then. Wwf testified before the new jersey state legislature that wrestling was scripted in the matches predetermined this was done in order to avoid being taxed and regulated. Like a real sport today in professional wrestling cave is pretty much dead the. Wwe hosts our own documentaries where wrestlers talked out of character and will often break cafe within their own shows however as cafe has died in professional wrestling it seemingly has taken off in other parts of our culture one of the best examples would be mohammed ali yes that mohammed ali to be sure. All of his boxing matches were real and he was one of the greatest boxers in history however the persona. he created of the arrogant loud rhyming. Fighter was total k. fehb he recalled in a nineteen sixty nine associated press interview about a chance encounter with professional wrestler gorgeous george in nineteen sixty one in las vegas. He said quote. I got it from seeing gorgeous. George russell in las vegas. I saw his aides spraying deodorant and opponents corner to contain the smell. I also saw thirteen thousand full seats. I talked with gorgeous for about five minutes after the match and started being a big mouth and a brighter. He told me people would come to see me. Get beat others would come to see me. When i'd get coming and going and quote alley began creating poems about how pretty was and how ugly. His opponents were his interviews with sportscasters. Like howard cosell. Legendary gorgeous georgia's prediction was absolutely true. Love him or hate him. You couldn't ignore. mohammed. Ali
"george russell" Discussed on Strong Opinion Sports
"The minimum he's a very very consistent driver who regularly finished up in Podium places and does well and Mercedes very happy with them. So I understand like there are no hurry to get rid of him. But certainly George Russell George Russell is probably the most exciting. I've I've seen from Mercedes all year where Lewis Hamilton is dominant and amazing and that's actually kind of boring because he's so far ahead every time when you have a guy like George Russell winning a race you go. Oh, this is interesting. It's new, it's different. It's fun and the three drivers who led the most laps in F1 all year or Lewis Hamilton valtteri bottas, and now George Russell's and the top with them. It's kind of crazy like Mercedes dominates this Sport and I just want to see about George Russell and a good car and I felt so bad for him man. Where He's going to win then they screwed up the pit stop then he was going to Podium but they had to send it back to the pits to take off his tires. But on the Right Tires again, then he had a puncture. So he he went from first place down volume two points. He ended up getting back into the points with really good driving got 9th Place and that is George Russell's first-ever points in form of the one but I just man it's so I feel so bad for him. Also. Gotta say people all year. I've heard people say like the Mercedes car is really bad at following and they always say that when valtteri bottas is trying to get ahead of people and passed people to get back up into the lead-off. I've heard all year. The Mercedes car is not very good at following. I heard that so many times and that appears to only be true and valtteri bottas and driving cuz Lewis Hamilton at times has driven right through the pack up to the front multiple times. They've seen George Russell did it on Sunday people keep saying this thing. It's just nonsensical not quite true. Like I get they're not supposed to be the they're they're supposed to lead the Mercedes cars designed..

"With this morning's fundamental list. Or we could go the grizzlies traded Mike Conley to the jazz, and a lot of people I was struck by how incredibly enthusiastic, people were about the pairing of Conley. Donovan Mitchell in Utah, and talking about how they are now one of the best backwards in the NBA. So I gave you a task this morning. Great, give me the top five backwards in the NBA as of right now, number five. Let's start with number five, we will start off with Mike Conley. And we will start with Donovan Mitchell Mike Conley. I was twenty one points last year per game, six assists for his career grant shipment of ball. Donovan Mitchell, slight little drop-off in its points per game series while you. But ultimately, I think he's going to bounce back in his third year. One of the most lethal backwards in the league he needed Mike because he had a little dry run in the playoffs. Take some. Oh my God. Okay. Great. So I just seeing seeing a little work thereby might commonly look at those trends and welcome back to the game Canley now about going to big sage. That's number four. Greenie number four. This one may drive people crazy. But I'm gonna tell you why wo- Paul Paul George. I say, Paul west come by to Paul George Russell Westbrook. Now Russell Westbrook's average a triple double entire season. Paul George finish number three in 'em. BB MVP voting. He also led the league instills per game. But I back their team play into this whole thing as well. And for all that talent, their team didn't live up to expectations not even beginning to the Western Conference finals. So that if you just again, separate the names. Yes, I think a lot of people would have expected, this PF pair to be a lot higher than great team play has to do a lot of stuff with it. All right. See number three. Now we're gonna go to once again, James harden, and C P three James harden. Now, James harden average thirty six points per game. Okay. Incredibly. I thought he should've been MVP so got love for Yanni. Congratulations. But see Pete three had his worst year statistically in his career shooting percentage he shot forty two percent from the field, onto pointers. He shot forty eight that's the lowest, he's had in this entire career in the NBA. I think he's still needs to have another big time year next year for them to be catapulted into the top two. Plus they lost back to back years. They should have won that last series of Golden State with Katie, and a lot of, and I can think of one pair that you probably have a head of them. I'm not I'm not sure who you have cooked up for us at number two. All right. Let's go number two Daimler j McCall put some respect. I mean, let's say this team last year. I stat him. They'll give me a great set. They average forty seven percent of their team's scoring in the playoffs forty-seven percent. They knocked down game winners CJ took his game to a different level last year. They got knocked out of the first round by the pelicans this year, regardless of their path or not. We're gonna take this franchise to the Western Conference finals. We had to put some respect though, her name, okay? That's a go ahead is McCullough. One of the best players also moving without the ball. And he's like a rip Hamilton two million euro but can shoot the ball from deeper as well. All right. Then number one, obviously, we go with Steph and clay. I mean it's definitely clay. It's, it's not for the injury to Klay Thompson. Seven games would actually given this team a chance to win the whole thing without Kevin Durant with Steph and clay that goes to show you how powerfully this has to be set out loud. Everyone always a first splash brothers as being the greatest shooting back court of all time. That's not even debate. Thereby does at some point, we have to start talking about whether they are actually the greatest NBA backward of all time, in terms of accomplishment, and individual talent, they've got to be creeping into that conversation..

"And he has the last five it's crazy when you think about the big picture of what Dane did scoring fifty points having a series game winning shot. It's crazy because he offensively has been second to nine ten threes. The second most in NBA history in playoff history ten threes by himself Damien lower going up. Against Paul George. Russell westbrook. Number one, number three in steals. This guy caught them off guard. And it's unbelievable because this is a time in playoffs. When scouting reports matter, and he still was able to look I have to point out something that will not appear in the statistics. A we'll all young people to pay attention to the character the Dame litter exhibits on the floor. He doesn't get emotionally intoxicated. He doesn't have turbulence based on the score of the gay. You saw him at the post game press conference. He was just as cool as he was during the game that allows you to keep a level of discipline and focus when everybody else has peaks and valleys, this is what you could pull up for thirty five heat at have the trust of your coach and of your teammates because they see you practice that shop. Listen, I've been saying it forever. You cannot spell Lillard without MVP. So I love let me go to the other side of this. There will be people asking do you believe Paul George regrets signing what the thunder out they go in the first round again. Hard to imagine. If he teams up with LeBron that, it would have gone this way. That's a question. People will ask is it a reasonable foremost people asking that question have they paid attention to the Lakers current situation. They had Paul George situation would be different. Maybe maybe not. They probably wouldn't have got LeBron James. You never know. But with that being said to answer to your question is an infant. No, no, he didn't even give the Lakers at interview. And guess what happened this season career highs in multiple statistical categories became an MVP candidate became a part of the conversation of top players in the leave. You don't regret making the move. What does he need in order to be more entrenched in that conversation needs to go to the finals he needs to win a champion year? He needs a healthy. He needs to stay healthy. If he did not if he stayed healthy. I think this team will look completely different. But you mentioned it. He's absolutely great. Especially playing off ball. Russell westbrook. It's russes shot. That sorta hurt them not necessarily Paul George. And would he needs to do is? Score fifty instead of thirty seven in a closeout game. That's what you do. They were going to give Daimler. He's the only all-star on the Portland trailblazers. But yeah, he's an NBA performer fifty points ten threes sending them home blaze mob. I it's exactly right in the thunder. Go home for a very long off-season of questions. And we'll see if Billy Donovan is one who pays the price for that. Now, let me get through some of the other action here. We'll get up and go because there were several other NBA games last night. Jalen Sixers blow out the nets they closed out that series. Do they look like they are sort of clicking on also not yet? Not yet the playoff really start for me in the Eastern Conference. This second round prompted a knits for our plan expectations. But Jared Allen ways as much as I do. He has no chance of garden Joel and be so it's going to be great to see him versus the soul is Serge Ibaka in a tough defensive team of the Toronto. Raptors in the next run, you mentioned the raptors they will be there because they finish off the magic last night as we get up and go. They take that series in five games. Chalet. How good is Toronto. Actually, good coming off of the seventy Sixers everyone assumes that the seventy Sixers have the best starting lineup in the NBA. Actually, the reference has the best plus minus in the NBA in the postseason. So they have so many different contributions. Whether it's surgery vodka, rebounding. The ball a coup why Leonard scoring and co is looking better. I know he's been up and down. But when he's been down who stepped up, PASCAL Siaka most improve..
