"Are we allowed to still use letters of the Greek alphabet to describe things that aren't viruses? Yeah, well, I don't remember. Alpha and beta we went to Delta straight away. I started to Delta. I'm waiting for sigma alpha and sigma. One of the great venues. Max Verstappen had a crap away here too. In the end, couldn't get Paul, wasn't even close. City didn't like the delta. Was it? Delta comm all over the track, in fact, by the time you feed it seemed like it was a fuel line problem. Another engine problem though, and you know what's funny? It's only when Honda stopped calling them hondas when the engine started to be named Red Bull. They had reliability problems. This, of course, after years of making fun of ran over not being powerful enough, and then of course taking on the Honda engine wasn't quite reliable. Not so easy now, is it? All of a sudden, yes, technically it's still the hundred in the big built in the Honda headquarters and a symbol there and maintain there. But they want to name it the Red Bull powertrain and the Red Bull powertrain, rob, it's a bit shit. Yes. I'm still staggered as to how this is occurred. In the space of the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix last year and a few months of passed by and it's, yeah, it's genuinely a concern because I think, I don't know if they've underestimated the project involved as well. And you're right. It's largely it is the Honda engine. I would almost argue a case of it's more of it had been distributed era that it just happens to be called the Red Bull engine because if it was Honda was still around, I think he would still say the same kind of era so I don't believe it's a change of paperwork that's caused this issue. There is something that has gone wrong in the off season. It's like the engine is in witness protection. It's changed its name. Why tell you where it leaves? You know, we can't say. It's just off kilter at the moment. So that is concerned in their title defense as well, but that has changed that I guess the hierarchy of the engine order and all the radar. Nowhere to be found. But the Alpine team, I think, with a quiet achievers of the quiet, he said he should have got Paul and he I think he said it's probably probably said afterwards. I didn't listen. It was the best race of his career and he should have won it. He loves to say it's my favorite part of Fernando Alonso. He was very good. He's pretty good. Pretty good driver. But he loves to tell you how good he is. Lyon is Alonso. Write that down. Max Verstappen though 46 points off, I think it is now the championship. I don't study three races. 20 races still to go. The whole 2019 season. I think it's still to go. I think it's going to take their 20 crisis. Don't remember. Too many races ago. I don't want to call it a crisis. It's too early. But it does feel a bit like it's hitting to that. Like, it's taken a turn left. It's heading towards an easy corrected sooner rather than later because there's some weed races that we're going to. What we're going to email the next. Yes, oh, can you imagine if you thought Melbourne was a risk of COVID risk? Can you imagine Ebola? What do you mean? Well, the number of people, I could not just I mean, Italy's Ferraris on top of both championship standings. Kilometers away from Ferrari. It's like a precursor Italian Grand Prix. It's like a prologue. That's the one they realized. Yeah, it's like a saying playing a marvel stadium. Reference of the year. I've brought that one down. Yeah, it's like, yeah, it's quite marvelous, yeah. 1230 on a Saturday afternoon. It's just like, oh, it gives. Yeah, no, that's a fair point. But and then we have Miami, not long after. So there's a weird jumbled up calendar, especially in not to mention the two Middle Eastern races that we've started. Surely, Australia is still round one. The season officially started at least for me because that's the first Grand Prix actually. It was my own eyes and not the 5 and a half minute world time as YouTube replay. I'm not even watch that this way. I am very happy. The count is down. You can't just dab. But it's for the best for the best. But before we wrap up, straight in Grand Prix, we've got to talk about Australia's own the clarence. Famously, Australian team. And Daniel Ricciardo had a good crack this weekend. Well, I'll tell you what this fight had a very fight was the loser of this weekend because if there was any way to put the car wash in Daniel Ricciardo was to have a J 0.0 Ricardo side. Which was also the very cruelly points as it was very cruelly pointed at. Grant, some of points also far this season. Heading into velvet. So for him to just finish. Albeit behind Lando, but just to finish the race, you know, granted, I don't know if he still has the memories of 2019 in the back of his mind where crashed out for literally within meters of the race starting. Yeah, for him just to finish the score points. It wasn't a spectacular start to his championship campaign, but to start nonetheless. For him. And then Dave McLaren as well. It was, I think they maybe underachieved, if I'm perfectly honest, this weekend because I had them on for the podium and certainly they form in practice and in dating qualifying, you know, could have certainly suggested they should have been up there. So I think they granted they needed the points. I think I massively were under this weekend if I'm honest. Well, considering the retirements we saw, since they've been able to stay ahead of Mercedes, it may well have been. I think Mercedes was quicker on the ties at the end. But Mercedes Benz was still difficult. McLaren were the only two teams to sorry, the only two teams were both drivers. Finished in the points as well. Yes, there is something in that. I think there is something in that absolutely. And there we go and see whether the car will still be good at other tracks and all that kind of thing. But look, it was a good start as the old saying goes to finish first, first you must start the rights. So you can have hey, good old daddy. I do want to mention as well before we do wrap this one up as very briefly. Because boy did my crack have a should weekend. It was not good for you. Yes. The cracks are forming. Arrested. And if I'm perfectly honest, and not because of my credit, I think if you're able to fight in the lawns, I think there's something there's some bad juju going on it. I don't feel like they're very happy tame. They were even criticizing the Aston Martin's safety car this weekend. That's how much yes, it was George Russell, I think, and max knows Max Verstappen and George Russell agreed of course because he's a Mercedes driver in the other states. The safety car. She said it was too slow. So even copying it on the safety car. Sit against Colorado. It was the medical car driver this weekend. I didn't know that. Yeah, good on it. Yeah. It's great. Losing. I almost disappointed what you say in the leaves on the new paid highway drove the medical care this weekend. Now there's a fun fact for you. Did he drive it home? He probably. I would. The.

"Listen to box of neutrals? Well, how about you fill out this form? Yellow one. Ah. There's nothing much more to say other than how bloody good. How bloody good job was it to have the Australian Grand Prix? Yeah, it was awesome. We both went to the famous for Friday the 13th event. How good, by the way, that that was in the 1330. You could not have scripted that bit. I know. In hindsight, there was so many things going wrong in bed 9 30 that morning, but it was great to actually tell you what it came back with a vengeance to the Australian Grand Prix. There was something quite special about it. The weather was perfect. Wasn't it? Very unlike Melvin, if you ask a local Melbourne. It was just very, very nice. It was very pleasant, very positive. I hate this whole sort of, Melvin's back. Melbourne's recovered. No one never left. It was here all along, so but yeah, as an event as a spectacle, it was a joy just to walk around and sort of say Formula One after and about as well. And also, the thing that made me, you know I love revenge as well. I've hated nothing more than Cersei British takes. Melvin deserving of the price Formula One that canceled it. They invented the carnivals all Daniel Andrews felt that whatever this that the other and it was quiet. Shocking some of the takes out there from Twitter in terms of Melbourne's place on the calendar. And what's the alternative when they saw the crowd and they're like, oh, it's now a must see event it's a bucket list kind of for people, which is, which is great because I still can't believe it as far as two months ago people were saying, oh, is the Melbourne Grand Prix even happening? Aren't they locking down again? And it's like, no, it's the whole boy. Yeah, it was a good playing opposite. It was very much opening. It was a great spectacle. Sorry, in terms of a bucket list of events, I could definitely show you. It's one of the great grand phrases of the world now. Yes, absolutely fill your buckets on your back at least. I've got to say though, you know, I do agree. I do enjoy the revenge element of this, if not just because some other people had to get up and watch the race in the early hours of the morning. Slightly inconvenient times for them. Although that's it, I think it was only two weeks ago we decided to cancel every Grand Prix later than 10 p.m. on the countless. Sorry, you know, I guess I cut out to stand up. But look, suck it off. It's one race a year. 6 a.m. is not even that early. Although some people may have different points with that. Let's talk about the rice. Charles Leclerc, man, they bloody double that. In fact, there was almost no race because he was so good in this one. Yeah. Well I haven't gone through the time capsule box of neutrals but I'm pretty certain and I said that was going to be Ferrari weed. For this one. But just as if we go through one, two, three. Great podium. That was. Perez and George Russell. And charla Clare first, I mean, for whatever reason, the Melbourne circuit has always flattered Ferrari in various gauzes of formulas of F one. And it almost seemed like in this upturn of form four Ferrari it was going to be a case of, well, that status would resume. Yes, we had the new track surface. That ended with the couple was very excited about. The revised track layouts and just everything was different. And so the form guide was a little bit out, but nonetheless, it was a little bit sort of history repeating itself in terms of years gone by. With some differences, but it was great to say, I think it was a popular victory for Charles Leclerc apart from him not partaking in the show. Okay, well, you look good for him. He has had COVID twice as he probably started to think about his way. You can get from mixing. You know what to avoid COVID just in the off season then in some kind of God problem. No one wants that. I got an airplane 24 hours with the sickness nowadays that kind of thing. It was popular. As you say, I mean, there's always probably Ferrari wins in Melbourne seems to be. They only color that rivaled orange. Naturally enough in the crowd. But it was just, it feels like Ferraris really here now, doesn't it? You know, we've had. Obviously being titled content is even before this, I know it's still very early in the season to say this. But the way they won this race, putting aside the Max Verstappen didn't even finish. We'll talk about that in a second. Haven't had pretty much for the duration. He said after the race course, it doesn't want to start talking about the championship, but you can tell there's, you know, Ferrari is grazia ragazzi starting to believe. Yeah, which is great. I mean, we've often joked or remarks about how Ferrari just hasn't been the same since a little French man in a couple of the very international very Olympics. Any decades ago. And even when Kimi Räikkönen won the title, they were still very much that influence behind the scenes really. So in a purely Italian sort of management style, I haven't really cracked the code. And they've gotten close a couple of times and have comically cocked it up. Season still we hug Michael, but nonetheless, there's a confidence about them there is something that just seems to click the car is working obviously to be very capable drivers. And the team seems to be also just not making silly errors. So I think it's a case of yeah, when everything is going good, there's obviously that confidence around the team and that bodes well for everybody. So everyone performs their part really well and it's just a good news story for Ferrari, especially given the last couple of years to be honest with their form. Yes, and how good to see the song sung in real life person. Yes. We kind of saw. It's quite interesting. One of the great anthems. It was a great day for Ferrari unless you were Carl science. Then it was pretty crap day. It's pretty bad day if we can't. It's interesting because for two reasons it's been a little bit off the pace style of quick. Definitely fair to say. You feel like he feels like he knows why though is what he says. He knows what the gap is. But it felt like this weekend he was starting to be a little bit under pressure. It seemed like he was feeling the pressure bit and this results kind of helped. It's a bit of a danger for the result for Carlos to be honest because I think you could argue if the first handful of races this season that, depending on how it goes, I mean, you know, for example, let's look at George Russell V, Lewis Hamilton, for example. He's in the box 8 of the life. He's the champion. He's the driver on that front is Russell, but obviously early days yet in that dichotomy, I guess, as well, but the clearance science is going to be a very evident alpha and driver in that lineup soon where they're going to have to put their eggs behind the leclerc train. To be honest, whereas if Carlos was right behind him, if they were fairly close by and be like, I don't know how to split it, but kind of doing that work for them to be honest..

"Good morning and thank you for taking time out of your busy title listen to this statement. That was great. That was just Greek. This is books of neutrals. From the balcony where I'm clapping the NHS. With your house band. David Croft Tomb Raider. The Australian Grand Prix finally happens after three years of waiting, was a COVID safe with all those people I don't really care what I'll answer that question. We are going to talk about the race though, yes, the race that actually happened my name's Michael Leonardo. This is box of neutrals and joining me as always. It's rob James. Our redemption redemption Marco on the streets of Alba park. What a glorious festival it was of we both attended in various capacities and boy and out of the three of us. Of course the silent partner has made him CJ. Yeah, I was the only one to do the track invasion. And this is, this is going to be a great test at all. My immune system is oh boy, it was warm in there. You get the tips. I do like the effect, of course, other people they have glass barriers. They're really add to the humidity. Just like a salad, just like this, the salad got it. It seems like that's what it was. Preventing the brakes bridging. Spores entering the paddock. Yes, we will be reviewing the delicious salad bar that was the Australian grog Prix, the garlic toast. We'll get to that.

"There. Let's check in with the box of neutrals community on Discord. You can join the Discord channel if you go to box screen tools dot com follow the buttons there and there are also links in the podcast description and of course this was the first week of Formula One coming back, which means it's the reunion in an online sense of the morning replay crew. The people who get up to watch the not at the time, obviously, 2 a.m. is, I mean, it's technically morning, but it's pretty borderline. Let's be honest, they get up at a different time. In fact, this way you can seem to be more like 4 a.m., which in my opinion is really pushing it for a replay, you know? I would, if I were going to watch a replay, it would be much lighter than that. It would be very much lighter than that, but you can not fault their commitment again you. No, except well, look I can, because why would you be willing to get up at 4 o'clock? You might as well get up at two. What's the difference? The damage has been done. 4 a.m. is sickening. I work up before I am the other week for work purposes. It always disgusted. It's not good. It's unnecessary. It's not natural. It's not meant to be. Humans were not designed to perform such a task that in the dead of the night. It's not a good E blocks. Yes, in fact, there was a little bit of a debate as well. Someone who where are we? We're in the morning replay crew. Alex is suggested to see if we're doing an 8 a.m., so 8 a.m. is more of a reflight time, even though it is a work day. Aim you in order said more like a 5 a.m. person, which is getting there, but it's still pretty better than full. Pretty borderline, to be honest, it's better than four. I mean everything is. I don't know, I don't know why, Ross and Russell start at 5 30, but there we go. Clearly, people are up that early. Things are going to be done. I don't debate that fact. Well, if you started for a regular distance Grand Prix will be done in time for Ross and Ross, I guess won't it like a tight 90 minute race. You can turn them on as you get the podium ceremony and I think that's maybe that is the more maybe that's the perfect morning, in fact. So maybe we've judged too hastily. Yeah, call up the rumor file and get and get a hang on. Where is it? Calcium drop bottle, 375 mil or a carton drive bottle 330..

"We'll thank you. Mark. Who'd have thought the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix might be interesting and worthwhile talking about? That is the most impressive thing in 2021. The way kids started so innocently went from changes here. Here's a nice graph to illustrate the radius corners, which was great because I've always connoisseur of the F one 20 21 franchise. Never enjoyed the Mickey Mouse chicanes of Abu Dhabi. It was almost I would design for a different time when the cars were a lot more quad gargantuan. In size and proportions, the truck changes were pretty good. I mean, it wasn't, didn't generate, I guess this thrilling ricing that we expected. No, the result we got was different. Well, yes. That was a different very different rate. Especially if you've been I feel like you used to ride it was again the big winner of the everyday world for China because fourth in I mean he's had such a mixed bag of season. I think for the next, let's start with the very first rise for you. Yeah, so some people benefited I think from the changes. Yes, Christian Horner accused Karen chandrak of making it a Mercedes track, which is actually doing it for Yuki. How did we know? That's the controversy. It's under the radar. I wouldn't be surprised if someone's protesting that result after these rights. Exactly. Very strong result from Mickey sonoda. And good on it. You know what bloody good on it, if he's going to stick around for at least another year in Alfa tauri deserves the fourth place. Very nearly a party of I know, look, we will talk about other things, but he was only like, I wish I had the results in front of me. Like, less than a second away from a podium. We're going to have the cenote. And it is like being at a party and something bad is like someone is vomited all over the wall or something. And I'm describing what happened to this. No, no, that didn't happen. But if a college stand there and go. Yeah, I'm happy with it. Yeah, okay, but I'm not the story you want to talk to. Talk about today. Even worse, I think judging by the transcript I was not in the press conference, but that it was just max and science. I don't think Louis was in there. I don't think he made it there. Or he was just asked to know questions for some reason, but Carlos was in the post race. Yeah, yeah, okay. So I think he was going on. Yeah, I think he had reasons to be upset. But I like that he had to turn up and let people didn't ask him questions with max just there and he, you know. Very great first year for everybody by the way. I think that's the other underrated story. Well, I mean, he finished ahead of Charles the click on points. Shouldn't be on the list? He did. He finished fourth in the standings. I think he's good like that, Carlos. It's very steady to the hand. He'd fit. This Ferrari, again, in various wash ups of tame reviews, which will save a later on in future editions. Yeah, very strange for Ferrari. It wasn't as a title connection that I had last year. I don't know, it's kind of like, I don't know what they're doing. The 2022 car better be bloody good because it's been a strange thing. You said that supper was so far ahead of lobster all in the SMS and that one caught me. I wouldn't pick that, but there we go. Well, good for Carlos in that case. So that's your PD. You flew onto the right off. Yeah, exactly. Well, not on this show. The talks all the big issues give us a call. What else is going to have the whole types of what happens? Let's talk about other things. We'll do the cool take things. I also have to do this right. I don't know. I'm sure Nick was the same thing. He decides to look for staff at world champion first time, very good for him. And not as good for the result obviously. Unfortunate result of Lewis. He did not win. It was very close. He dominated the race. I would say, in fact, he was the world champion for 56. You have people say that Felipe Massa was to world champion for one lap or half a life whatever. Lewis Hamilton was a world champion with 57 and 58 laps. And then was it not after that for the candidate? In fact, yes, although the live ladder for half a lap, the womb showed that he was ahead and all of a sudden he said something racist and the audience turned out he didn't do that. But you understand off of him. He said something about taxes. He's going to raise taxes to pay for a bridge and then all of a sudden everyone voted for Max Verstappen. He was the winner of the championship. That's how I assume things working for me to one. And it was, I mean, it was in many respects the ending that the season, not necessarily, but certainly warranted, which is a scene in the deserves. So there's no point saying a second word. But after the year we had, they couldn't be as straightforward ending this season. No, it was. We protested by saying who knows what's going to happen by the time we next catch up and record?.

"With Michael laminata and rob jans. With your husband Tommaso stala and the tomato lamina. Zero points between them after the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix, which means we're set up beautifully for Abu Dhabi, the grand final of our sport. This is box of neutrals. My name is Mike. I love it. And joining me is always is rob James. Whoops. Wrong hand of it. Clearly, I think the one if we have zero points, I feel like forget about sort of conspiracy as to whether FIA bloody, you know, trying to rig the championship or whatever. To be conspiracy, or this is going hard to get zero his fingerprints all over it because it is literally hard to can 0.0% points between Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen after the savvy arriving Grand Prix, which again, which will come as no surprise to any listeners I didn't watch. I chose sleep. I may be mildly regretted it when I woke up in the morning because when I woke up the world was a different place. My Friends, it was one of those 5 minutes in history where I went. Oh boy, I was actually due to and catch it, but there we go. So that means congratulations to everybody. I will be I'm a guaranteed starter to walk through the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. Congratulations. It's a pleasure to have you with us, and yes, it is a dramatic twist, but it wouldn't be anything. It wouldn't even be a patch on the idea that the 2021 season was just an elaborate Honda con commercial at the end of it. They took off their overalls and they were all just giant ironic and bottles on today? That'd be weird. Nico Rosberg. It would be an incredible choice. An incredible Indy. Baby deserved it. The 2021 formula says we're going to talk about the beautiful setup we have in.

"Your balls will thank you. Only two races to go in Formula One for 2021. We're getting very close now. Yes. I was excited. He's pumped. He's absolutely pumped. Probably as well because he's still in the lead. At least for now. But two years ago, one week off. This weekend, which is very exciting to have finally a bit of a break to breathe to understand what's happened in the last couple of rams, maybe catch up on the highlights, if you will. A break, and when we come back another bright quick today, we're getting through them today, aren't we? Absolutely locking them up. That makes sense sick out of there. Yeah, me. There we go. It's an action packed stuff. But let's start with Lewis Hamilton because he won this series. Yes. People don't use that so often anymore, do they? No, yeah, it's kind of gone out of fashion. Maybe like sort of like a two cool of an uncle and say, no, no, no, just call me. It's called me so Louis of bothering Tim or whatever. That's lord to get 90 attention. But I don't know. People on Twitter will just say so little tax haven. But yeah, this is well I will admit, I did catch the 7 minute and two second highlights real today. On a tram. And we'll pass outward part two. Very lush. I should have done a live stream, but no one would have a kid anyway 'cause it's just you know built. There's a couple of ducks everywhere. It's heels. People having lunch. Yep. Well, probably is a few start live streaming in Melbourne. People think that you are right. Independent journalists. Of course. Unwanted attention is crucially. But yeah, it was my point. But yeah, no. It looks okay, from what I saw. Everyone was a bit nervous that I think about the fact that this is a primarily used for moto JP kind of circuit, but it looked in the timing from what I saw. A lot of punctures. From what I could gather, but I'm telling you, just all weekend, Mercedes, again, just in classic Mercedes style, just kept their cool kept their composure in amongst sort of vexatious litigation and sort of the lack of, I guess harmony between Red Bull and Mercedes. They just kept their head heads high. And yet again, Christian Horner has come out with more and more paths. And so they're the ones looking probably nervous at this point. I'll tell you it wakes a long time in Formula One, and you know what? I think it's advantage Hamilton Mercedes here on in to tell you the truth. I think the same way. Red Bull's cooked. All right. In this stage. I'm sure we'll have a different opinion until you wakes when max wins. The Grand Prix Hamilton has a connection because probably Netflix is filming the Saturday right in Grand Prix. But yeah, I don't know. I just feel like Red Bull a little bit more nervous than perhaps I would like at this point of the season. I don't think the handling it too well. A 100% feels that way and it's just the whole it's really funny, isn't it? Because Christian Horner will talk a little bit about old mate Horner and his interactions with total later on. Boss, all he does now is go on the attack and accuse toto wolf of not handling the pressure. And, you know, I don't want to sound like I mean, primary school, but it does seem like it takes one to no one in this situation, doesn't it? Yeah, like I've said before. He's a very good leader of the opposition. You're very good at saying, oh, well, they're no good. Yes. You don't have any policies of your own, you know? Kind of not standing for anything. You just like, oh, well, that shit. I don't have a an alternative as to why we're any better. So they just kind of throwing the shit over the fence for lack of a better phrase and hoping it sticks whereas but I think it's yeah, it's not working out too well. I think what Christian Horner got to please explain about. Talking about Marshalls and the yellow flag. Incident during rules of qualifying was where the double wired yellow situation, but, you know, the flags are the primary points of communication, the stuff on the dash in the light to kind of just do it. You got to supplement the pay attention. Exactly. You can't be relying on your car's JPS to tell you what the speed limit is. Yes. And I know that and it cost me $269 once filed to update. It is a problem. You gotta look, you must always look before you change lanes, don't rely on those little lights on the mirror at sick. No, they're not good. They're no good at all. It was a difficult weekend for Red Bull that sense. And I wonder how much as well. You know, there's the pressure of the fact that Lewis Hamilton is on a great run of form at the moment. Ever since he rocked up in Brazil pretty much, he's been absolutely fired up. Total wolf called him a superhero, which was bordering on the fan fiction in my opinion, but that's, you know, he's entitled to do that. He's the boss. But it's also the fact that coming into these three weekends, because we've just ended a triple hit up with something we probably should reflect on spending a lot of racing at some pretty cool. I haven't noticed. I couldn't tell the difference. Often tell you the truth, but there we go. That's a planet rob before. There we go. But of these three races, the expectation was and grounded the cause of being very close so you don't expect so much. But the expectation was that Red Bull would be the better car or all three of them. And it was certainly true in Mexico. Far and away the best car. But in Brazil, we know that while the Mercedes car was very quick, but Hamilton smacked it out of the park, and again this weekend, Mercedes had the upper hand, but again, Hamilton was the difference because it was stopping qualified second, let's not forget a hit of Valtteri Bottas. Before the penalties of course, there has been the Mercedes has been just quick enough to enable Hamilton to, I guess capitalize on the form he's enjoying. And that's making the difference. It's not just the car as much as Christian Horner desperately wants to make it happen. It is also that Hamilton's just found himself this great place where he is able to make the difference..

"Team principles space we don't know. There is something though about the idea that Aston Martin is I mean, look, as man's losing the team principle, it might go, they have lost their team principal. And that does deserve a mention, I guess. Well, scrutiny. That's big. Yeah. It's big. Set up a Senate committee. Yeah. Well, clearly they have enough people to do it, but you do have to run the hell. How much of a whip is Lawrence picking up at the moment? As well, given this was everything's gonna be. I gried Lawrence thrall tick of approval in terms of who we associate to the same with and in terms of the branding and the look of the car. I mean, you know, if they spent less time worrying about what color Sheik agreeing that should be using for television, you know, maybe that should be focusing on the performance of the vehicle. So yeah, just maybe up mine's just going, can you believe the shit that they're making me do? At this time, we used to punch it by my wife, so we didn't care if the cow was pink white, blue, whatever. And now we're forgetting about this. I'm sure that's not the reason. It's just yeah. Maybe it's just trying to much because it used to be the little thing that could the essence of that tape was changed in that season for better or for worse, who knows? Time will tell. Yes, that is a fair point. A story you've almost certainly heard of before. Grand Prix in the City of London. That's been doing the rounds this week. Incredible, isn't it? It's been this rumor has been going around for I reckon 20 years at least. Maybe longer. Who knows? It's gone on so long. Boris Johnson was pushing that wheelbarrow when he was just a quirky man. I was just like, oh, imagine if he would go to the prime minister. Careful what you wish for sometimes, hey, so that's how all that newsies. Yes. But I do like there was an article and I think it was the right order. So I think it was the race. Written by one of the people who is working for one of the companies that is backing this race. So of course he was very optimistic about it. He thought it really did think it was going to happen. My wife will happen, in fact, and the key asterisks I think here are that if you're thinking it's going to be run where they did that famous demo around that everyone uses photos of when they ride up the story in the right in the middle of London, wherever it was, I don't know. It's not going to be there. It's going to be or will be in the east of London. The London city airport and the sewage treatment plant, so less spectacular, I think it's fair to say, can't really say from my explorations on Google Maps, much of the iconic parts of the City of London. It actually was written up a little bit. I don't want to do this too much. If it happens, it happens. Good on them. But it was written a little bit like a real estate advertisement. It uses phrase like London's 21st century landmarks, which I assume means that landmarks, no one's heard of. Or don't exist yet. Which is a good one, I guess it's a way to sell it. But it's still it's that thing where it's like, I understand why you'd want to race in London, right? Because it's a world city, very people recognize it very nice. Scenic background, whatever. Yeah. But it's not the same if it's in a part of London no one knows. Much in the same way and look at the Miami Grand Prix might be great. And everyone seems very happy to go to another race in the U.S.. But it's not the same racing in a car park around a football stadium is not the same as racing on the beach front of Miami. It's just not the same prospect. Yeah, could you imagine if the Australian Grand Prix started all ever again? The Australian Grand Prix Nevada. And the best location I have right, the what's a real hub that sort of every it's a focal point of the community, you know, it's an international venue has a hotel on it. Let's do a rice at the Cheddar shopping center. But I've seen that they've expanded. They put more levels on it. Are they hotel there? Giving it a great one lessons in speaking. Tom will tell. Yes, yes. I will tell, yes, it's the same if they, you know, again to go back to his rumors of Sydney. Yeah, they'll take it to Sydney, but then if you just run it at eastern creek, it's not really like it's next to a tip, which is the same as the London Grand Prix to be fair, pretty much, so maybe it is 5. There you go. But yes, that is the rumor at the moment. But, you know, take it with a grain of salt. And finally, news that's probably already happened by the time you listen to this, so we'll just go out and say it as if it's happened. Antonio Giovanni is asked. He's gone. But when you Joe, it's been announced already, or it'll be announced soon, or it'll be announced tomorrow art. Or we might be wrong, but apparently no, that's what's gonna happen. I don't like the Callum a lot to be confirmed. I can not wait. Let's check in before we wrap this up with the F one fantasy competition formula mcginley. Why does the page always refresh once I go and try and read the scores? It's just a terrible design, isn't it? It's just not a good design. I didn't make it. I.
"grand prix" Discussed on Box of Neutrals
"You're listening to Greeks on the roof. Before we talk about the Brazilian Grand Prix, I do want to talk about the championship. I mean, the championship is every round. We get closer. You know, every round, we get closer to finding out who's gonna win. Brazil is the next round. So logically, we're gonna find out a little bit more about he's gonna win. But the 19 point margin, which we mentioned, which is in Max Verstappen's favor at the moment. We're getting very close now to when we can start saying those things like Verstappen finishes second for every race then he'll still win the championship all day, but he's not at that stage yet, but one more victory, and okay, there's this weird, we've got the sprint qualifying coming up in Brazil, which adds a couple of points into the pool. Pool. But we're getting very close. One more victory, I think because that'll take Verstappen to 25 points at least. Well that's a whole rice when he's at 25 points. And then 7, 14, 21. Yes, there are four races to go. If you win one more race, it'll be out of Hamilton's hands. Winning the law all the three races after that won't be enough to win the championship. So that's how close we are to tying it up. Don't forget to we've also got the four points up sla for the fastest lap. This is true. DHL the great packaging. The great shipping crisis as well. DHL, if they just spent more time ferrying cargo from my the iconic orders or my manscaped orders, I should say, 20% off N for a shipping. It's not wasting your time bloody handing out trophies to Valtteri Bottas. Whoever's on Paul, but we've also got the sprint qualifying for the Brazilian Grand Prix coming up, which is the next round as well. And so there's a handful of points available there. So while I know you're preparing, I know you weren't Kane for the championship story for the step into win, but I still think there's a little bit of a long way to go. I think if it's, yeah, with every even step in victory, the you can get the to start. Yes. Putting in. It's like wheel of fortune. Private can get a crack on an a? Maybe maximum. In no X no, I'm not going to have an X for well, would they give me a name? Isn't it Maximilian? Maximilian. The brand name. You're not going to go with Daniel's mixture or whatever. It was Daniel Ricciardo. This is what Daniel Ricciardo can't win the world champion because he would like, he would change his name for the Grand Prix where he clinches the world title to Daniel fake, you know, 69, I'm just a little dilaudid hot ricotta. Forever that would be on the trophy on the dark trice yes of this. Yes, ricotta. Stop putting friend names in their own name. The ultimate show of loyalty to the brand. Exactly. Exactly. So, yeah. What was my point? Oh yeah, so yeah, another verse happened when maybe you can come close, but I'm not sold entirely. This is yeah, this is a rough job because I don't know, I feel it waters, roster dramas is cooking something. It's for the lack of perhaps quality of the 5 minute highlights videos of racing. The championship permutations. Going to be worth watching. So that's still I'm still holding it home. Look, I hope so. And the Brazilian Grand Prix or the circuit itself rather should not be as one sided as Mexico. I know there's not being made about the altitude. But that didn't play as much as a role in Mexico, like the engines around similar pace and altitude now, Mercedes is sort of their app. This was more about Red Bull being able to add more down force to the card. Shouldn't be such a problem meaning to Lagos. It's much lower to the ground anyway. Low to sea level, I should say. So the race is on the ground. I know this is the I don't want to I don't want to be disparaging, but this is the COVID round, shall we? Lots of other sports have famed, you know, so they support good causes and things like that. The burping president ran. Instead of and, you know, in hopefully, you know, no one's no one contracts the old, the old say virus in Brazil, but you know, in terms of your reserve drivers, if you say, all right, we're going to send you to Brazil. There's probably a very high likelihood you are not going to rise. You have a great chance of contracting a disease. They do. Yes. You'd Formula One. So shortly, the obvious solution is to enlist the local reserves of Brazilian stock car drivers, you know, great, year max Wilson's and Rubens Barrichello's of the world. You can get big back at it. He'd love to. Yeah. That would be. I don't, you know what? Don't put it. Don't put past the season 2021 for Rubens Barrichello. It's spectacular comeback. Yes. At the ripe old age of 70 IE's of age. All right. He may be a factor on the grid. I'm gonna put him in my fantasy F one tipping thing. Oh, wonderful stuff. Didn't people people criticize the Australian Grand Prix when it was canceled for not putting in local supercars drivers into the Formula One cars instead. So, you know, it might be they were right all along role. I think it was, yeah, I do look back at that, but I just got probably not the points. I love logic. I love the logic of people who comment on 7 news Melbourne, I think like that. It's a frustrating well of joy. It's a beautiful thing. Take a look at dip face. I will say the Brazilian Grand Prix could be interesting. I really hope it is because it's at a crap time. It's four in the morning or something like that. So well I sprint qualifying is at 6 30 for some reason on the east coast. Beautiful if in New Zealand, that'll be 8 30, I think on 9 30 maybe even imagine that that'll be all right. But that's fair. It's good on in New Zealand. You're lucky if you do. But let's look at matters before, well, this is actually after the Brazilian Grand Prix weirdly enough. Alfa Romeo has said this week though that it will make an announcement or hopes to make an announcement in the way they're all Formula One teams only hope to do something and never actually do it. About it to.

"So I hope there's a lot of people feeling, please themselves really do because I think they've all done a fantastic job. And Seth was saying there that Miami next year that's going to be the next Grand Prix in America is going to be in Miami in May. You know, the guys there, I know we're doing a fantastic job. I was talking to the mayor of Miami just on Tuesday about how he's trying to make Miami this great sort of global gateway, not just for tourists, but for technology and sports and everything like that as well. So this is where I live. It's a great sports town. You know, we've got NFL NBA, all the American sports, but there's also quite a melting pot of cultures and it's the demographics much wider, a lot of European people live here. It'll absolutely I guarantee you the first year will totally sell out. It will be another success story in America. The trick is going to be whether they can continue that year after year. Hopefully the races couldn't be good. That first race is going to be good. The track's going to be good and come together because it's going to be another kind of, you know, I don't like to call it a car parking lot race, but it's a race track around a stadium, so think of, you know, it's going to be more Abu Dhabi than than coteries. The potential there is absolutely phenomenal. It's a great international hub, so people can fly in from all around. Huge Hispanic demographic as well. So check all of all this fans here. So again, I say that the potential for this race can be off the scale and can elevate it further and where does it stop then to deliver teeth then thing? Okay, let's try and hit the West Coast. Let's have a race in Vegas. Do we go back to Indianapolis, you know, America is such a big place. It can have all these different races and they can all be very, very different from each other. You know, could you even go back to Long Beach? Fantastic venue, great Grand Prix that's now for IndyCars that would be a fantastic house city for a Grand Prix as well. So I just love the buzz and it's a really exciting time to live here and see it all happen all unfolding in front of our eyes. Oh, it's absolutely fantastic. And just you talking about Miami has got me so excited.
"grand prix" Discussed on The Autosport Podcast
"So close and gripping throughout the year. And like we've seen, it just keeps throwing it surprises our way, which is fantastic for all of the fans who watch and love this sport. Looking to the two drivers teammates. Let's talk a little bit about how they form. We've already spoken about czecho today. So we won't revisit that. But Valtteri Bottas, what did you make of his performance? We saw him struggling to overtake Carlos science towards the end of the race. Charles, what did you make of his drive today? Yeah, it was just one of those where you knew he was on the pace just like echo was of max and Lewis, then it comes to the race and he's in the battle and he's in the sort of dirty air and stuff like that. And it's just not making a headway like got stuck by sonoda gaslit TV mister gastly past him at one point before he had his suspension issue. And it's like, come on, guy, driving him sadies, you know, you won the last race. You know, you should really, really be doing better than this. Obviously you did then battle his way past Norris and science, but again, you'd expect him to do that. And he's ended up finishing three seconds behind Rick Ricardo and yeah, you just expect more from somebody who can qualify that far up the grid. It was a shame they had to do the grid penalty, but yeah, it's one of the reasons why he's not retaining that drive next year and George Russell's got it instead. The outer he dealt with the cars that were dealt to him this weekend. You know, and just tried to make the best of it. I mean, it was surprisingly false said that we saw him step behind Sonoma. But then, you know, with Valtteri as sort of this weird hit or miss thing that, you know, you ask him to deliver a certain area to ask him to put out and he can do it. You know, but then aspects and certain situations like will to will, we've always seen that he's had a little bit of a struggle there. The lesson is to be honest. There has been a little bit of a struggle with will to will with Valtteri. We wanted to get his elbows out just a little bit more and really dig in there. He had to deal with what was put in front of him. And, you know, he got the best result he could 6th place. So, you know, at the end of the day, point score for Mercedes, they're in a crucial moment of constructors. They really need to hold on to it. So they're gonna Valtteri did the best he could. And like Charles said he's on his way out at the end of the season. So I mean, I'm sure he's racing as best as he can, but, you know, I mean, when you know you're moving teams, you're not really going to, you know, you're going to say, hey, I'm a race the best I can, but I'm not going to be here next season. He was also only a 6th fastest lap as well. So he's 1.6 seconds off his teammate, which just doesn't get enough for me. So Charles based off of that, I'm guessing you definitely are in agreement with Mercedes choice to switch to Russell next year. Yeah, absolutely. I think you've got to look forward rather than back, you know, Valtteri, is that he's done a great job for the team he's been a fantastic win man for all those Lewis Hamilton championships that he's been involved with since Nico Rosberg retired. I think he was absolutely the right choice at the time. And I think he'll do a great job for Alfa Romeo and bringing that team team forward. It might have a new owner, it might not. And I think he's a really, really good Grand Prix driver. You know, the guys won multiple races now, but he's just not a top liner. He's more Mika salo than Mika hakkinen and, you know, to be blunt and but I still think he absolutely deserves his place on the Formula One grid. And I just look forward to seeing what you can do with a smaller team and try and drag them up for some exciting performances and future. Now, before we move on, we're just going to say a.

"The intro. was me in the twin turbocharger. You would hear a big trask. You're to go wall after. I second gear bitch to learn how to drive. Dude i to run with. I need a runway or tarmac. Yeah well definitely don't hit a wall because there's a lotta and we keep talking one of the richard right. Richard walling wait. Is it rawlings wallich's in that car. We've talked recently so much about the the power on that thing. But we haven't really touched on like seeing it in person because a while back when selvarajah was doing the bodywork. And he's like. I'm gonna do some carbon. I'm going to do red stripe. We're like okay when some of the photos kinda got teased on that thing. It looks good. A good combination of the gloss paint and exposed carbon. The i can't come up with stuff like that. You know the in the the creativity to do those little details. But i mean they elba job. The things beautiful. it's funny. I've i've had it two weeks and i haven't put videos out again but i just i want to do right. We don't wanna do it right. I want to be able to drive the car without looking like an insul- and without killing myself and i want to be able to put something out there. That's cool you know. Hopefully well at least get some you know. Get a couple of beauty shots at that pain and put it up on instagram. Just so we can take look at that thing in person because at this point it was only kind of teased and a few close up shots. The detail shots and although it's not an over the top paint job which black it's just the right way like you said just a pretty good artistic look at how to do the gloss black with the the exposed carbon and then kind of break it up with with a stripe of some sort like what do you do. What color used. How much do you do. where do you put it. I always i agree with you. There's always kind of a thing and artistic thing with that of just like how you bring a line across a bodyline stripe across a body line and any little thing on the side of that party can oftentimes throw it off. Not door handle. But just the way it curves up or down and it's just something simple like that takes a little bit thought and quite a bit of experience car. I'll tell you beautiful next to the carbon charger. I'm into the carbon challenger. I gotta get both of wash to get it out. There gets beauty shots. they're just they. They play off each member how he did the. Yeah the for the Flares kept them carbon. So it's it's quite similar but nothing well The mustang mach one as you guys know we've sort of tease it's getting some carbon-fiber as well with our friends at anderson composites they're developing. Some parts are using the car to develop some parts but in their catalog already. They have a handful of mustang parts. And what's interesting is on that car it has a. It's the fighter jet gray with your parents. Package was got the black and the orange stripe on it again which looks cool and tear point the black hood. Stripe has a combination of sort of sat in sort of a matt black and gloss black. You know so even just. The sticker is complex right because the orange and the two shades black. And there's some interesting things on that but then all of the black trim on the car like these splitters and a little bit of around. The fenders is not quite a friend or flare but basically that's kind of what it is. It's all done in a an textured molded black which we were looking at going well. These would be great as carbon fiber and can they develop something. That's not super kostov but something that could be purchased by other mustang owners and throw the anderson. They could build the. Yeah so they're doing it so i haven't seen the car in quite some time. Make payments on it. That's for sure. Four keeps asking for their money. But i i was down at the grand prix of long beach and got a chance to connect with them. They had a couple of the cars. They had a charger anama stang. They had a gt three fifty which they had done some parts on any again. Just kind of getting up close and seeing those parts in person in you know. It's good quality stuff. It's really nice. They had some gloss carbon parts on display and some matt carbon parts on display. And they're cool. I personally for me on on like this mark one. I think i would go with the gloss carbon. I just i just think the the mad carbon is kind of cool. But it's a little racy looks like a dry carbon and it looks a little kind of race ish and on this particular car. I wouldn't mind having the gloss carbon and A nice uv. Clear coat. And and i do kinda like like to bring the car into the garage and you know put on some music and detail the garage and not have to worry too much about. Oh my going to get some wax on that matt carbon and i don't want to give it a shiny spot by by accidentally buffing. It was just. I just want to shine the whole thing right and kind of make it a little bit easier in your head. You're like oh it'd be easier to just skip those parts. Don't even have to polish the hood. I was like you. Have you put to do it right. You kind of want to tape off the edges of that hurts. You don't get any polish on it. And then what do you do when you want to put a little bit of uv protection on it you know through a wax are ceramic code or something like that so i don't know just kind of the thought was otherwise you'd have to maybe even wrap it like you were doing. You have a combination on on your chair x. accommodation of the gloss rap and a satin.

"How you meant to have any kind of ones or urge to purge. When i guess it's the same about the house drivers right now right like how. How can you have any real verse for formula one when you not really driving formula one So i i agree with. I think it's i think it's five and the other thing that i thought was was was really really kind of a dinner if this is under if this is typical fernando alonzo but i wasn't surprised at all but what did you make of his start when he darted down the The ten to escape right which was something. He actually practiced on the phone on the reconnaissance laps on the way to the us because technically as long as he doesn't gain like too much advantage of fast line but it's still be within the rules. Like i guess that was the that was the point. Anne anne would avoid any kind of tend to matt if there was ever going to be a point in the opening like kind of very early stage of the opening lap. It was going to be there so it was a tactical move by alonso to avoid any kind of opening-lap craziness shenanigans and getting pumped it out. Kept his track position. I think it was a foster line by loving watching him. I'm loving watching him racist season. So calm absolutely hundred converted. When i think i did to hungary sign is great salem. So back and someone's dug out a tweet. I done a year ago and stuff. thanks bye. Delete wait sorry and then you should probably think more before you riot. It's like because everybody does. Everybody does that when they toyota. It's fine to accept. That's what we're doing lake. We can accept that we were wrong and on. Isn't it great. Isn't it great. Because otherwise we wouldn't we wouldn't be able to enjoy fernando alonzo a wise a wise old fox and another one. Who outs out joy his teammate. Today he outdraw conan and angevin finished sixteenth but teammate. Kimi coming home night. I mean again when the rain comes down there is no substitute sometimes for the experience. And i'm gonna miss kimmy. Yeah fantastic and again. This was a result really made by the decision when he came down to like weather. Cool and as much dallas. By alpha's technical every pool are after the race. And i said to him how much of that was between the driver on the team. He called the shots and they said that was okay. Me and i guess when you've got close to three hundred fifty grand prix experience dasa lots tap into and you can just put full faith in more. He's gonna say and they said that sorta halfway around the lappy were saying. I think it sends us. I think it's interests and then tries to pay entry. They were ready and they said what do you want to do. And he said inter definitely dived in. He was one of the first drivers to pay. It was him russell and bossa stay with the first guys to come in became a really big winner in order. That eighth-place alpha may i mean. That's the team's best result since brazil. Two thousand nineteen either had such a miserable couple of years. So it's really get that. I think is a big breakthrough i think the. Yeah if you take away. Perhaps the madness of spa. Then you might say that it would probably breathe some life into the hope of beating williams constructors championship. They're still a their margins bridge. I mean it's only a whole of four points. Finishing eighth bar i think is a bit of hope alpha. Yeah even though they don't have the pace right now they're still able to win it matters or capsulize and take advantage and that is all downstate experience of kimmy and i think we're going to miss him and that kind of experience that really other drivers on the grid could've solely done with today we're going around the top ten and then we've got a couple of final issues in the last five minutes of pod today to discuss so the ever absent. Sergio perez thinks she thinks just. Wanna thank you fast to react. So i'm interested to make you can both take me down. Mind okay. Yeah i think i think prior to the rain. I thought the chaco driving excellent race again. He managed his ties while as he always does and he was. He was genuinely looking. Good for a podium shop and the two things that renewed was the slope from red bull. Wait you haven't yet found out. An explanation for baugh was something we saw. Monster as well with max stoppings car. And they blamed on the clamp down in the regulations is an eight point nine second. Stop otherwise check. I think would have been out on well in the hunt for third place secondly it was the rain. It was the fact. The red bull didn't bring him in soon enough again. I'm not sure that it's down to the team or the driver something to find out but he just left a couple of laps as alonso did and that in the end he just dropped back and didn't have the pace in those didn't have the ties up temperature. He wasn't quick enough to make switch but up until then. Actually i thought check. I drove good right. So i think the qualifying yesterday today. They didn't quite time things right and with check are there is a lot of all but this happened. That happened at the moment. And i agree. Yeah results off brilliant but today was looking actually set to be. I think one of his best drives ambassadors of the year. He i think he would finish third heart. We got dry into the race in the allied. That whether it's the driver of the team who didn't make that call on ties. Yeah it's it's something for them to learn from but no. I thought he did a really good job today. Perez problem is not getting the car qualifying high enough and having to make up ground where he is potentially still struggling with balance the car. But i i agree with luke. He was shafted by things outside of his control today and yet that was pretty much the kyw bosh on him being able to get any further up the griffin then eat than he did before the rain came. So it's i don't yeah. I think it's a bit harsh. I think it's maybe quite easy to sail pin on. And i guess that's that's the that's the bullet point right walking away from today. He's pay nine. And max p two from the back of the grid and i think in terms of the championship is not really going to send him in good stead. We can sit here and talk about an isolation but yeah you know. I think it'd be unfettered. Said he had a poll race. Today he had an unlucky race today But there's only so many times as seen in the case of batas where you can keep blaming bad luck before you start getting well. People start thinking about who else could keep that seat. Wom- so i think. I don't think it's as you said he's got contracts. That's not gonna happen anytime soon. But it's just an unfortunate pay nine for him today much but could have been a lot higher. Nineteen points to lando in a far superior car was being harsh The gap widens today because bland. I got fastest laps gets the point. That's so good to see george russell Just getting a high profile informative without that starting position today. What are your ten tenth good result for. George would walk away pretty happy every ru what could have been today with the rain some points. Isn't that well. Eight point.

"I'm completely in italy joe king. I don't think that's what we should do. It was because the reason why it was so interesting because we had so many calls out of order. And i'm sure that for the gimmicks amongst probably going to be shouting for well. This is the exact reason why we should have reverse grids again not something that i'm a huge fan of but that was the reason why we got so much action and to be honest i didn't and i look and i we. We tend to rate the races on this podcast. Sometimes and i very often say that. I base it on the fact that you know how. How much of my attention did it keep. How how often was i looking for things on social media or anything like that and i genuinely was gripped for the entire race. And that's quite an ask so again cause a bit of variability with the with the weather and the sonata on the situations the fact that teams actually really seem to have too much information on tire deg this this year. So we was that. Come into play. The fact that the mediums kind of found a second life span later on in the race when people on the heart or starting to struggle. It all made everything really variable and teams really hot to get the stress. She heads on in order to make headway and not to not to forget that we had quite a few drivers taking a new power units as well. So we're starting at the back and having to fight their way forward in order to take point time for their team so it was just that level of variability i think grunted us an exciting saatchi and twenty twenty one. If you told me that we'd be sitting here saying that. Both the french grand prix on the russian grown pray were potential highlights of the season. I would think you were crazy. But here we all is twenty twenty one hundred wins for lewis hamilton. How did he win the rice. Let's try and work out. Because his worst he was down seventh as the leading pack started to pits. So that was for calling in science at the end of that thirteen. He rejoined just in front of stroll. Although the undercut was was powerful he couldn't signs despite that slow change for ferrari the early stops ready for science stroll and russell meant that ricardo hamilton peres had no choice but to stay out to avoid coming out behind them again until the rain arrived. Luke how did lewis. Hamilton go from dropping down to seven. Point is worse to able to get into position but when the rain came he could capitalize and jump landing. Well is really the the the undercut wall initially powerful as he signed allowed strokes the jump russell for example it didn't have a long lasting effects and it wasn't enough to everybody to jump in and follow seats are we saw that. I think most plainly with science nor science. He really struggled with grinding the end of that first. That's why he came in when he did. He lost a lot of time to norris before coming in and had the undercut being radiated pie. Full mclaren had no choice. But it's reacts pretty quickly and bring morrison as well but they didn't they just kept going and kept going because landau sounding actually pretty chill on the radio saying you can go for another ten laps or whatever and we saw with nurses times compared to science so they are pretty much even even though science had these fresh ties on so it was really just about avoiding not grading which is something that mercedes were able to do with lewis. Hamilton's cars so and then the by the time. The earlier pitchers had got out of the way we were left with ricardo leading from hamilton. Even though hamilton couldn't get posture kado newsradio really struggling. He was still going quickly enough to ensure the it wasn't going to be a massive deo towards Towards the answer still reiko basically and amend the when hamilton day coming. Although i was a few software called his pace again have been quick enough by the time he got into that claire. Any undercut recorded might get just didn't work basically so only know that laid out the cars basically they just norris ahead of him on track can he was left with open road and then we really saw him. Put the hammer down his ties. We're only two laps older sets yet times. He was taking a good sort of six seven tentative second album per lap i even higher points nor sometimes a little bit of traffic ahead of him. I was also held up a little bit by alonso towards the end of the sort of dry phase is. The rain's coming in again allowed. Get a little bit closer. And all we've seen a gap who've i think it was eight point eight seconds at its peak. Dropped all the way down to just one second and we're thinking is he gonna get drc gonna get drs and then we look to the ground stance and we saw the rain jackets carrying on the umbrellas. Gone up and we knew that it was about to get spicy. Yeah i reckon it was with about twenty two laps to go. Just the i thought right here we go. This is all all the cards have been played now. We know the the leaders of the race. That time surprise alonzo Leclerc they were running really deepal now. Hard tires That started on gasoline. Had as well but they all failed off. So as luke says you left with fifteen laps to go that was down to one point seven seconds of the late and then it seemed to stall because the way that lewis was catching landau with those between twenty two to fifteen laps to go. I thought his pace. He's either gonna take all this tires and blow it but we know lewis is so good on time management. I'm like well lewis has got. This was my my take on that state until the hamilton charge stalled. How were you feeling at that stage of the race. I think it's very easy to go out and say these is. The is the fastest about packages. Scott hamilton is seven time world. Champion is going to breeze pass. And you know we kept seeing that graphic pop-up aws graphic saying striking distance in five laps and everyone landau was inland. Is cam would probably getting a bit. Squeaky time butts butts. That mclaren still does have mercedes power at. We know it's slippery. And i think i said going into this race. If anybody on this grid of the top three burying my we pretty much knew russell would would would fall away. I would put my money on london. Norris keeping lewis hamilton at bay. We've seen it multiple times a season already. He he is a very very good defender. And he doesn't seem to crack under pressure when it's placed on him especially by the seven time world champion. So i actually was thinking as long as landau doesn't make mistakes as long as he positions that mclaren where it needs to he could hold on to the end Because as as as you know landa started responding not by much but he was keeping that gap to the point where it was manageable and if he could keep that for as you say you know fifteen laps to guy would have worked. How i k- i mean. We'll never know because as you said the rain came and then we had the crucial decisions being made the lead to What we what we now know to be the one win for loselle. We saw in asia of the mercedes. An is very different circuits to saatchi of course but actually when you get stuck behind the mclaren. That doesn't have the benefit of downfall. So they do run a lower downforce sets up the actually. It's not easy to pass even when you're in d. r. s. range jess. What's your gut feeling on how it would have played out without the rain. I would put my money on london or staying out head. He's such a good defender. I would've. I would put my money on him. Keeping them at bay. Unless i mean we started to see a couple of mistakes was only when the track psyching slip e so until that point he unperfect wrong and just i i would put my money on land holding lewis at bay which is quite a big thing to say when talking about london norris i is low thomasson but i think as i said we've had enough evidence to to see that i would i. That's how i would be interested to know what luke things. Because that's how i would have play out one hundred percent landau holiday. I think we saw the lewis was okay. It was making those gains but then when he got around so at one point three seconds. Cy landa them responded. He sat faucet. Sloppy was setting and know pretty much neck really with the they were doing. So i think the although lewis would have had the.
"grand prix" Discussed on Box of Neutrals
"I shit on him and we say it's getting e web's the a remember those battles and like the the i'll give you an example like a moment shade between ricardo in and norris. You know if it was a world championship battle it wouldn't have been the same is cogil But because it's a it's a team effort and it was attained grand prix victory as opposed to an individual if it because the not rising for any individual plaudits really at the moment. Let's say aiden wanted to use time if they are Championship contenders the picture. All altogether in terms of that dynamic saint before you say novelty in roseburg know. They absolutely love that. Have good moments like that bahrain. Twenty was sixteen battle where they were rising really hard really fairly and they both taps love the battle afterwards and it was smiling laughing about it afterwards but to quickly deterred very sour. Not long after that. But that was also just as fine for every sort of khan and lovey-dovey moment and i don't want these are real men onto team. It's all those amendments that of championship battle that grand prix victories. A they easy going to be easy to come by with grown for and then it is a world championship and he's facial hair spray but he hasn't wanna well toddle yet and that's the one that he really really wants. And this is a different you know ferocity a to us and the has to be and it's great to watch is just mexico spectacle because at the end of the day is much sport. It's still entertainment as well. So you can. You can have calculated to i. Reckon yeah i think it's i think there's no problem with the overall rivalry. I like that sometimes. Red bullies petulant and mercedes sometimes comes across his arrogant. But that's that is sports. That's all of it. You don't get to the top level of the multimillion billion dollar motorsport industry and then just shake hands over on all the time. That's just not i think that's fine. As long as now on assaulting anyone outside the paddock at the end of the day or getting into punch on delivering school. It's good everything's fine. I think it's to wrap up the incident. I suppose yes. They both left the grand prix with no points but maximum step of course got a couple of points over lewis hamilton. The sprint rice. two points. so he's temperature believes that five points. It's hard not to putting aside the idea of whether deliberate i don't think it was It's hard not to say that red bull racing didn't fundamentally win this weekend in the championship battle rights expected to really call pain because this i mean we saw in qualifying mercedes was nearly half a second faster than red bull to leave with an extended championship lead staff in any way. That's a pretty big weeden for monday for them. Yeah they go to wi with. It was a fairly average. You know we we think about the sunday results The perez with the five-second penalty. And so he he was bumped off the podium as well Yeah that they. At least the you know in terms of both hamilton verstappen walking right with effectively points. Nice substantial point to the weekend oceanside. It's it's not the not the worst result however there is a hangover effect. Because obviously max now has three m three greed plice penalty for the knicks grown prey. So he's you know he's going to be to work on that for. I'm but in our three grid penalty arguably fee finishes on paul for the next race for example in stockton full at the end of the world for him in that regard. Either so it's Yeah it's it's not a dealbreaker entombs if he's world championship but i do do have to wonder though for the next girl and pray because obviously it's going to be repaid of silverton where he's going to get hassled about every he's gonna he's gonna get the sheets press conference because it obey the pace of every single. Tv journalists in deviant. They have to ask the question asked him sort of north south questions like books brezler command to ask but i gotta ask you questions about and that the growing prey so he's going to suck it often with a and again you have to think that in the psychological battle hamilton will be again their heads in that front because max's walked away essentially the villain of that grown pray. He'll be handed by the press in the late up to bring he'll be annoyed about that. Whereas louis desaix in halo often. Yeah we'll just we'll just carry out. There's less greasy ryan hamilton. The certainly more on for stepping in and red bull and yeah. I don't think it affects them. But it's just it's an. It's an annoying background noise that they probably don't need. And this is the main at the crunch point of the championship rounds to go. We've got russia and then a bit of a break in turkey and then a bit of a break still. I think depending on whether or not that race chain do and then we've got a real condensed drawn to the finish. This is now. We're well past the championship establishment face. We're way past that we'd and it's still so close. It is almost already met the qualification for down to the wire even if someone broke away now we've had so much already. It's such a long as as in any other year. This would have been down to the y. Already but the pressure is gonna mantovano precious ambiguous thing. You like to say about sport and that's sort of true but it's gonna can. This is way whether or not verstappen nate's championship. Winning experience on this way crashes like this will irritate more. Because you can't say well there's more than half a season to go. There wasn't silverton. Every rice is gonna count more. It's going to become only more interesting. How h drive response that it's going to be interesting and i do wonder now just to wrap up this weekend if one sprint qualifying trial left at the brazilian grand prairie normally anyway. Yes that's only small points but then as we've said estaban has extended he's championship laid this weekend solely because of spring qualified the title as only five points. I can't help it one way. The of course the points in any of the spring qualifying can because you've already had a couple but secondhand that's gonna influence all trial successful right. Imagine you've sprint. Qualifying judge to have decided the championship. Does that mean we keep it. Does that mean the pressure will be great to then get rid of it because it'll feel weird. Wow it's had a couple of isis full off the kalemba so it kind of even the the the the points lost. But i did think about this. How much bearing this has on on the championship. But it's the same for everybody so that and it's not just spring qualifying this you have a whole heap. There's rice in you think so but also not enough as well so the margin for era a lot smaller so if you think about it is what are we got the the rask grown one go russia turkey at sites. That's three mexico for brazil. Alive the table say rice and then saudi arabia every w we got seven or eight races so mental with me takes over five times before bed forty odd points at play then sprint rice as well and then you've got fosters latin as well said theoretically mec sets the fastest lap had finishes it in the points for the next seven or eight pray. Those that's another seven or eight points upi slave and in the context of this battle. That's that's nothing to sneeze at so every single point. Cancel no matter where it comes from. He's he's going to. He's going to be really on these.

"And it's building up to be one of the all-time toddle fights and this is for hamilton. It was very. We came home jazz. All that rhetoric will that propaganda. All that scott sports propaganda at silverstone It was it was very frustrating to watch. And so it's kind of like he's just desserts. Zoom zumbado just at zandvoort even had orange shirts. Try to fit in. Didn't have anyone fooled with that sort of antiques it differently. It wasn't there rice. I mean you know they if harm cried is worth three. Tenths martin guarding worth about two seconds. The atmosphere was was electric but it was also a lot of people commented on this. It's not that enabled proving but from experts to have I guess the the demand air everyone wants the pace of step in sort of the media in the crowd of course One these time and red bull tried to make sure that it was just like any other groom for a weekend in terms of his preparation with engineers. And what have you And yeah there. Is that home sort of nerves of wanting to do your home. Nation proud and fahim. He's conduct just took it easy stride Which probably just sort of confirms and solidifies that mexico is has news steel to be honest. Well it it is interesting thing. isn't it. i think this could be maybe a subplot of the championship. We don't know yet but we'll certainly find out if this really does go down to the wire when we get to the last couple races. That's a situation. Hamilton's bain before it's not a situation with staff and has been before but this was in some senses attest of that pressure gauge. I guess because well it's not competitive pressure to to rock up. Seventy thousand fans absolutely go at partying twenty four hours a day and shouting you name. It is a type of pressure and there was no sense at all across the course of the weekend that he was really feeling. And i think they walsum as you sorta ribbon kind of play mind games but you know some psychological exercises. I guess to make it as normal weekend. This possible. And i think there was some sort of self chat to try and minimize the effect of the crowd. But there's still the pressure there he dealt with it. I mean got it on paul won. The rice didn't put a foot wrong for the hallway hand. That's a big check. I think for his campaign in the sense of whether or not he's got what it takes to complete a championship campaign is the talent the only question whether he can seal it also point to yes and is another reason to think that he can take it all the way to again and again a shortened multitude assualted practices over the weekend. A game confirmed Let's practice he's He's good practice for grown bray very again. I couldn't just off the back of week. It's a beautiful point track time for. I can't believe people were aghast as to bang quote unquote ralph of track time. Yes again during practice. I even software and if one photographer describe the the length of some of the red flag does a fast. I think. I told you the would foss has been. It has lost all meaning. It's been weaponized at. It's now being used will. It's losing its maiming. Almost very quickly just teasing tossing at fast as left rawson singer. I can't believe at this stage with debating about how the the length of red flags and having to be quicker with because the the friend turned up for practice auspices it ended up it was it contributed maybe to some question marks of course with the mercedes. 'cause were the oil reservoirs we saw. I think it was hamilton. Had an engineer shoe. And even ricotta had that sort of oil flare up during the growing perico to see the banking I'm willing to say so. It tossed up a couple of questions. I certainly my the rice interesting because there wasn't much action on trek so we had to big solder. Bet something i hope. This is my sort of cautious optimism. That's next year. We'll get a bit of dutch grand prix. Because i'm reminded of the first as a by a european grown as it was called the time and remember there was so much action in the support categories in fact it was too much dangerous driving categories and so when the time if one rolled around we all thought. We're going to get something similar. But all the drivers really reigned in and we got a pretty tame growth in the second year once everyone sort of digested the track. What they learned all that kind of stuff. We gotta really crazy rights and we've had pretty good racist generally since then. I think this is one way. We will be slow. And i can't remember but anyway and i wonder whether this is this weekend. We're pretty slow. But all the practice sessions so many offs i think. Four or five red flags or six red flags from practice to qualifying. Where the by the time. We got to the rice because overtaking was so difficult everyone sort of kept it within themselves. Everyone took it relatively tamely Maybe next year when they've had again time to just the data most simulated timing. Some drivers didn't even have a cracker distracting the simulator including steph and strangely enough that we get back here the banked corners that were meant to improve overtaking will actually do the job of it more we might even dr out of the last corner which will help overtaking to the first corner some a little bit optimistic that actually the first bryce syndrome if you like work in the opposite direction for us zandvoort yeah. That's true. I'm willing to give it sort of a pass for for this year. Because the attrition rate was quite high there were a lot of special at all through. The rice just had a clumsy speed of science. Had he's monumental shunt in free practice three So i think everyone was on agent just wanting to get away with a relatively clean and undamaged car for the weekend so they'll have a user processes and maybe the next year the the action won't just be reserved for greeks on the roof. We'll get back talking about the dutch girl prix and well maybe not the dutch grand prix itself but the things that have an off track of the dutch grand prix in just a moment.

"And i think the alphabet marriage is a lot of credit for the strategy day today we saw structures ruth buskens fist pump on the pit wall when he may one of his passes and yeah good battle with veteran. I've come home eleventh. Sep twelfth probably have done a little bit better. I think you look stroller done. But i think that was reached in qualifying yesterday and couldn't quite match. One strategy ricardo. We covered spinal cord similar to. He said the pace and the just wasn't there and he said that being stuck in that train the rare qualifying obviously with g of nazi and say on at yet made it quite difficult. Gymnast did a pretty good job. Given me was put up in that. I spit. In order to the chaos. At ted three site complain their schumacher massive pain finished one behind schumacher birkenstock.

I had a lot more to deal with so otherwise he was happy with his pace side mentioned for the massive spin spinning top the signer gifted nikita masbate was a dairy nice self-deprecation such by the team and nicholas latifi. Don't reno about school. And i say that's my rundown duck. Of course we're racing here again next weekend. So let's have a look forward next weekend. Do you think is going to be easier. Ifo ready for again. Do you think we might see a little bit. Low bit more improvement from mercedes. What you thought looking ahead to the austrian grown pre next weekend Mercedes and who else do you think could make a big step forward from five adama pack. I think we touched a little bit on earlier in the In times of sorry battling puppy that wants the noisiest toy in the world. Sorry touching earlier. I think the big the biggest thing that we're going to have to look at is how the The step soft parolees if that makes a real difference to either rebel mercedes or both in terms of how they're going to approach things. What mercedes can do if anything to answer. Ripples pace advantage whether they're not going to be mind games that get thrown out in between now and the weekend to try. Try and play the game there. But yeah i mean. I don't think we've definitely shouldn't be looking at it like it's the exact same race. I mean. just just remember last year. I mean the difference between the stereo grand prix and the austrian grand prix and that was the other way around last year We look at the weather forecast. I'm not even. I'm not gonna look because i'll just be disappointed. Say let's just assume that it's going to be a dry race. I think we saw when we got back to backs last year. They don't always deliver. In fact i don't think they ever delivered the same copy paste race so that's going be something that's really interesting and we should be. We should be looking forward to to another round. The ripple rang and to be honest. It doesn't have to improve a lot to be a more interesting rice. So let's hope pit keeping expectations low. And then maybe be pleasantly surprised. Yes i would say definitely do not bother looking for costs because having been out here i can say it is not very accurate everyday untold thunderstorms and. We have no doubt that a tool so dying. Get yourself doing that. New walked about you. Is that anyone that you is gonna make a fake jump next weekend also providing a few days so there's any sandwich the teams can do but we know that some people oversee missed out from things out that control for instance george rosso. Do you think that there's anyone that you can really be keeping your eye on next weekend. I think it's going to be interesting to see. What mercedes does i think the way they kind of deal with this walkie direction and the they sort of made mention of it they. They've got something to look wasn't lie. They were like oh. We're a lot of ideas said that there was a reason that they can maybe identify. I think that's going to be really interesting. I think the answer is probably going to be a two race next weekend. That could spice things up a little bit ever gets really hot than that. Could as well to come into action and sort of play a role as well so i think that's gonna be interesting. I think the the step softer on the compounds. I think that might hurt. Ferrari a little bit. So i think it's a good transfer mclaren. Maybe trump little bit further claire in five third championship guitar. Down your car. i think williams. They've got to look at next week and we've got a huge chance clearly quite clearly. We've got the car in a good place. Let's give georgia another shot. Getting those breakthrough points. Iowa yeah i think as jessica is very is not going to happen that we see sort of mirror race of what we have this weekend. I think is going to throw up a lot more interesting things. So i didn't ask him to interesting and one thing i wanted to ask you. Arianna is australia's always one of my favorite races to go to absolutely love of last year. When i found this year fans believe the attendance is going to go up next. We ask changing the restrictions. Wherever i what does the atmosphere like in australia. Have you found it with all the fans back. And everything like that because it's is one of my favorite writers by absolutely love this trucks. I mean casino is insane. Yes we do have founds back so this weekend. I think it was fifteen thousand pounds or allowed a next weekend. It's a big jump. I think two hundred thousand because you the rules change in the middle of the week. So yeah next weekend's going to be good one. The atmosphere has been fantastic. The fans are loving it. I mean i was doing track. Tv one say literally. Just what fancy on the big screens and they were in element. Lots of red bull fans in the crowd. Obviously osha saw some people.

I don't like definitely think this is a qualifying. That red bull lost rather than mercedes one. So yeah lewis. Hamilton was brilliant. Excellent job but he himself will admit that neither of his two laps were particularly a hundred percent. Perfect is what he said he needed to being said. If you can him about listen in the press conference he says if you put the t. laps together you would have not perfect but i think we still felt both of them. There was time on the table. And you could see that. And secondly didn't improve. Both of the rebel drivers made significant errors. And actually if stopping hooks. Everything up. He's clearly on head of hamilton.

Bahrain Grand Prix Qualifying: Should Mercedes be Worried?
"Of the weekend max stock has taken pole and it feels like we have a bachelor hands. What did you think of the stephens. Performance arianna was fantastic today. It really really was. I mean like. I said a few nights ago recorded our hand i've represented. I was always very pessimistic. Is very wary of the potential from his eighties to to come back out of nowhere and stunned the formula one field and maintain its advantage from the previous seasons. But yeah i mean what. What a great drive from vistaprint. The there was a slight a slight down a slight negative aspect to it. It did make a mistake in key. One damaged his car and put not seemingly not enough christie reckons that it costs about one tenth for seconds in terms of each latte did after going over the cubs and damaging his floor. I'm an by By over three tenths of a second so you know he could have been even further ahead. Bob that just shows you how good that packages and and how well see bishop in eastern. It was just a fantastic fantastic drive in and again. Sergio perez out in key to in the other red blue. I mean obviously is a new car concept for him so he's gonna take a little while but it really does again show work good job. Verstappen does yeah definitely but mercedes did look better than what we've seen previously. They seemed like they had improved. Low bet but ozzy said max zappa me was only four. Tenths ahead of lewis. Hamilton and various hamilton. Did say after. He gave everything he had so i not finding hot one qualifying session and we have a very long season ahead.

Red Bull Looking Strong at Bahrain Grand Prix Practice
"I. around bravo and joining me today to discuss everything is motorsport becomes editor jonathan noble. Now john how are you good. Thanks very much enjoyed today. Actually for for a friday practice session and we've had some boring ones in the past. I loved it. how did he find the show's format. I really liked actually. Because sometimes you an hour and a half. He often set there. That the teams will do nothing for the first twenty minutes so boring installation apps in the afternoon will be lost in long runs and Today there was no. They couldn't waste any time. They had to get out there to be doing stuff. I think what may happen is we may get a pattern. As the season progresses in terms of when they do new laws and old tires or long runs and short runs mixed up today but it was really frantic. had a little bit extra spice to it and you sense maybe teams have had to show a bit more bit more pace than they normally would like to on a friday. I feel like sessions had a lot more energy than we used to like he said and it was just nice to not have those gaps that you used to practice sessions where you just sitting around waiting for more to happen. Maybe it's just the excitement mean back of the cause on track. But i definitely loved it today now ahead of today. Of course one of the biggest topics was red bull locked and the fact. That mercedes want looking. Quite as good as what we're used to. Max zappa and topped the sheets for both sessions today. But what are your thoughts on. How right boy looking the looking strong. I mean i think. Sergio perez is first race weekend for red bull. Those kind of a big step for him to get in their new car new team new concepts all that sort of things He's he's admitted. Single outpaces lacking at the moment doesn't think he's at one with a car he's probably having to over. Think a little bit too much which suggests pacers and coming naturally to him. Which is he's ended up six. Tenths off max. Today but for max kind of the the perfect star
Grand Prix 2021 Season Preview with Laurence Edmondson
"Season's just around the corner with the start of the bahrain grand prix around one of twenty three china to count them. You might get up about. How long will be watching television for this. But it'll be good. I'm sure there will be good to tell us. It'll be good join me. Spn by laurence edmonson lawrence. How you doing very good. Thank you. How you doing. Absolutely fine exciting's you get a new season underway. I feel like everyone's talking about helping the off seasons vein. But i think this is actually one of the shortest. We've ever had opened with that. It feels like a long while. I think because i guess we knew all the stuff that was going to happen ready. Usually the off seasons for the driver changes and stuff that that happened before the last season started. So we've had this big buildup of like all these expectations about drivers going to different places and now it's come into reality so exciting. But i'm i'm definitely ready for it to kickoff. Well i think the big question on everyone's lips and it's not whether the with a hassle behold through the world sporting cancel controversial livery. We'll come back to that light. it certainly doing. Do we even bother with free practice. Come the brian growing parade. Let's be honest. we already mostly done. And if we go by the foam the unofficial form guide the unsanctioned form guide of bahrain price as and testing. If you were betting market and will purely looking at the results of intesting and bahrain you necessities at twenty dollars to win the grand prix because if you believe that performance that they put up in bahrain testing something. What is changed. They were going so well last year. This year seems to be unraveling under nathan. What's going on and it's a really good question which. I didn't think anyone had the answer. As of sunday and bahrain testing included mercedes. Which was that. Was the exciting. Bit economy expected to get there and then you they might start slowly but then something. You've come to the car on the final day. Do they use your trick of setting a time that when you look at it and you kind of calculate the fact they had thirty more kilos fuel than everyone else it was actually good but when you looked into it you went into detail at speaking to some of the people who team. It doesn't look like a situation for them. But because we've been here so many times before. I'm not willing to place that bet against them and if there are good aunts to get on them. Yeah we'll take that up. And i think the other side it which allow people have really talked about maybe given much focus or giving us much credit. Is it a massively. good job. The winter they seem to have come from a car which really wasn't very. It's one which really is quite good so when you combine those two things. The hope is that they meet somewhere in the middle and we have a competitive season. But yeah i don't want to jinx
Secrets Of A Grand Prix Photographer, Bahrain Testing Day 2
"To go with today's action i'm joined by grand prix alex kalinowka and a special guest photography. Extraordinaire stephen t. To get his perspective from the front line. Stephen thank you so much for joining us today. it's been a very busy couple of days and bahrain How is the great nice to be here. Thank you for inviting me. Yeah it's been been okay at as you said. The weather was was fit. Weirder than we expected. I think everyone thought we were gonna come here. Very benign and a ball. They were able to really halt yesterday. And and we have to sandstorms but amazingly I think the amazing thing was caused the often is still managed to get to the time that they did a landau for about a day. That saying how amazed there was that you manage to get such a such a quick time in and he said that he thinks the because the track is Has got such a. It's a very rough track very wraps up. He seems to think that maybe the oldest a very very fine sand that was being blown around. What's going into the cracks and wasn't really effective in sumatra. 'cause they said it looks a lot worse. The cheap felt basically. So that's quite interesting. So how was that from your perspective because obviously it was very very sandy on friday. A love wins. And when you get bahrain as well you have to deal with the conditions of going from light to dark as a photographer. How does that change things. Foyer day these tests have been quite long. There's actually quite nice to have the dnc the otherwise everything will be a little bit one dimensional. You'd be reasonably nice light in the morning. He's got reasonably life nights. Layoffs at all or you should But it's nice. It's nice to have the opportunities to the lives as well. I'm here with them choosing mclaren so we're only allowed to even be on track or in team garage if you work and they see what folded at one team so we could allow full overseeing the garage then all out and circuit two very separate team says guys are on track. Spend the whole weekend on track guys in the in the cowards and spend the whole weekend in that garage is but so so it. It's quite nice to have to the you know the the change of life because as soon as the lights come on you can stop doing different things etcetera so It otherwise it would be very very long day on a bit. One dimensional when you set up for the weekends. You and the other talkers. Guts bahrain for the weekend diesel to come together make list of like the shots you want to get or is it very much A little bit more fluid than that shopping list is kind of creative. I in a client whether it be working might multiple dot com or ulcers. Full repay racing. We were We we put them yesterday. They they went suppress Last night basically. So they needed. They needed five parades and And pictures of every car. The team sponsors. We were all have big shopping list of stuff they need so it's very much driven by but yet you're absolutely right we do. It's around a on a breakdown. Who can do an five of the days. The best time to get the shot get shot there is a lot of discussion about basically and obviously in preseason testing updates as well which is quite important factor for editorially and i guess for you guys this photographer how do you kind of with that kind of aspects of preseason testing as well. What about talk of his mom. He's tossed with looking for that stuff and shoots just basically shoots stuff on circuit tries to get angles but my show walser. What the what. The teams are doing differently. So that's that's that's very much role this year because there's no active free actress to the line. I know access to other people's got the one working working working in it's it's very sham an od on the oneal and tracks Soup scenario about. He's been with this gopher nisa kind of see stuff so it's kind of interesting to hear it from especially within the time currently in but you know you've been you've been at the track stephen and you've been watching things happens. There been anything that's kind of caught your eye for the past couple of days. I mean just the number of laps they've been doing is one thing. Obviously we all know the calls on all the other they. They social differences to the merrill basically the same as last year. So somebody's been doing testing for chip more years than cats. Cats are remember One of the features of testing nor in especially you know going back a few years was the cause would sometimes do you know first day of testing four or five laps and spend the rest of the time in the couch being being get the updates in an engineer stunning scratching their heads over a various positive. But they've just been they've been pretty pretty now and they just been going round and round around so i think good other than that frustration for us i suppose The the there's been a lot flow is on the cars and And that's not something that Clients we go out to us basically because that gives away lots of secrets. So those those those locks have to be Speeches copy used from the laps. That's happening on and then hopefully they've been using the the arrow gates as well and a lot so That this There's been quite a lot of. Let's be quite a lot of that going on the last two days especially in the
