"How's that yeah. I think i just get the sense that everyone's a little bit tired now. The drivers will be kind of low energy teams alone energy of louis. Louis mentioned a few futile nikolay problems. Today we're all tired I think it would have been great. To have ended the season with a saikia grump rage that brilliant climax to the season would have given us a huge feel-good factor for the winter. But what ago And then i'm sure you'll be tired shattered tomorrow night on sunday night Wake up monday morning. Counting down the days to the australian grand prix it was ever thus or preseason testing as well as always a lot of fun but you mentioned hamilton Having a couple of nearly two issues He has percents mercedes for this weekend. Having delivered gave it negative covid nineteen tests. I should stress but it hasn't been an easy return to the cockpit. How's it he has had very Sessions with with issues in them. Yes a him in he admitted is a little bit Kinda rusty in in first practice was now. There's a like break problem of think. Mercedes to took took thirty forty minutes maybe to get to the bottom of this. Break system replaced the master cylinder. Go back out there. Second section building up his speeds we saw in the pits he started outside outside-half with some suspected gearbox or clutch issue. Not quite sure what that was Just nikolay things but had up their testing as few teams than twenty twenty one bits. Today's well saving. Everyone's looking very much for looking forward to next season. These flow changes diffuses changes breakdown. Changes are going to. i think. We'll we'll actually shake things up more than people think the slot minor chains chopping off a small section the floor. But i think that's been a very very important part of 'cause aerodynamics as i'm sure you're well-versed in gpo so a lot of work on that I think lewis. He's just happy. Happy to be back probably important of him as well to be to be back if you had missed this race. It would windsor of people. Speculating about you know. He's not really interested in formula. One will he come back. The same county. Full was thing but back put all that to bed. Yeah he certainly has an a civil situation because he's had the time out obviously kindness only two weeks and back in the past. Obviously drivers wasted Took a week off per match fit. And he's been out with with covert a so of layoff He said he wasn't feeling to gets. It's get to see him back in the and we did have a few issue issues. L. sweat in the field of stops daniel ricardo. Fb one george russell's williams smoking and fb to and can be records out from that scene after spontaneously combusted down straits towards the end of the second session. I think we take respect about drivers and teams being tied. But i think the the friday engines were russell on. Yeah i think a lot of teams have started to get towards the edge of the life of these engines. The three power units for the season We saw clegg's ample sergio perez so bahrain grand prix. Md uk goes bang which therefore takes a relevance of the engine out so elastic elastic answer revert to a Older engine which fire had enough managed left but the these turbo hybrids. Don't perform as well. You know if the first thousand classes do their final thousand kilometers is performance degradation which has improved over the years. But it's not as best as a few tempts up and you can't run it as aggressively towards the end of their life so this weekend brace important to the decision despite battling for third place 'cause sham ship despite there are some difficult for taking this track is not the easiest on the calendar but they've taken taken the engine hit for sergio they fill guarantee him getting to the finish on sunday. He'll be run into the max. Go to last one race can rather than six or seven Some sure he'll be quite quite feisty on sunday charging through the field. But i think a lot of teams. We saw donnie at a few problems this morning. kinney's spectacular blow up. So i wonder if son sunday There'll be a lot of nursing going on out there. I suspect the certainly will be As you said you know we're in the final bay. I wouldn't be surprised. A couple more power penalties between now and sunday to be honest with the epa. We'll see how that plays out as you say perez from the back of the grid he'll win. Nc shirley yeah. I think he's got to go to tough tally. Now because i think he was the thing the stats people have poured over. And i think he's the first person to win from loss on the first lap of a race i think jenson button famously. One was last midway through that. Canadian grand prix. He won So if surgery is going to try and do some super record. Like being last quarter's the race or something and then charging three to win. Because it's not. It's not the lowest position the anyone's one. From i think john watson did it from twenty-second in in long beach. Nine hundred eighty one. Was it so obviously. We have a short grit now. That's the one stature. Have on that upset story. T the other ends of the grid or say mandatory. First glimpses of shoe macaroni pass. John didn't really see too much him but to the eaten throw off the right i guess. He acquitted himself quite well. It's quite hard to to tell especially in happy one. I think the fact that it was fairly anonymous that You know we didn't see the barrio. We didn't see any spectacular lockups. We didn't see any spins We didn't see him sex of the pace of said a lot. About how kind of good solid it was. You just got on the program Did the job done. Some unique sim preparations with ferrari You would have had this outing at the nurburgring. If it wasn't in the alpha but would have had the outing there wasn't for the weather So perfectly respectable job. Good for him to get at least a free practice session under his belt. Such minimal preparation heading into next season Preseason testing obviously is One half days each driver. There is the young driver test which has some old drivers in next week We'll we'll we'll more monash per every every kind of session any drive can get this state especially for rookies and just get your thoughts on the well. Lonzo has been traveling around in his. Oh championship winning run from two thousand five and the relatively youthful age of thirty nine. Hey will be in the young driver. Test Don ricardo won't get the chance mclaren. Gene you went for for our inspection to win for racing points faster demoss neither probably for our. It would been easy to get caught. Sign senior into the car Was you make of all of these Old hands coming in for what was essentially space to be a test session for the younger driver. I can understand.

Lewis Hamilton returning to F1 for Abu Dhabi GP after negative Covid-19 tests
"Yeah let. Let's come back to two and he released a video earlier on this week so giving an update on how things with going those the first time anybody heard from him speaking publicly since the needs to be positive test was announced and he didn't sound totally healthy and firing all cylinders. He sounded exactly like a person who's had to sort of model. We hope case of corona virus would expect a bit under the weather but you know he seems fairly upbeat but yet how how badly or how much as appropriate for repeated word. How much do you think that impacts his performance this weekend having to recover from from the owners. I think it's definitely something that has to be taken into account and talking to people who've had covet and i think even for drivers i believe space salon strauss today for example about the impacts of long covert. I think they call it in. Covid falcons sort of the idea of the even off detests negative. And you're clear this still just the after affects just take a while to to wear off and here people sort of taking weeks to shake out of that though beat that we find then three or four o'clock in the afternoon though just field so tied out of energy completely and it's also the author impacts of and lewis obviously is i mean he's as anything so his body will be well conditioned to not back as much as possible from covid. Same goes for long straw. I mean he's a he's an elite level athletes. his body will be of trained to deal with anything thrown at it but if he's still feeling the impacts that really does say a lot. So it's it's really hard to know. I think that lewis will probably want things go smoothly as possible and just back to normal this weekend. But i think we've got maybe just understand if he's not sticking vol position behalf second dominating the rice
Bahrain Grand Prix race review
"Wants twenty. Twenty borrowing took place today in sakir circuit. There's max stop into the win but the race was really overshadowed by a horrifying crash. Perhaps driver rugova. We survived his car bursting into flames of being sentenced barriers on that one following contact with alfred driver via the race was red flagged immediately after the accident and thankfully it soon emerged that grows have been able to escape. The inferno is being treated by the f. as medical crew. You played a vital part. And he's escape from the fire. Gordon was taken to the track's medical center and was then airlifted hospital from which he was assessed to suffered no broken bones but does have burns to his hands and ankles goes without saying we wish him well in his recovery and express our sincere relief at seeing him survived the accident after delay of one hour and twenty minutes is the barriers were repaired actually replace concrete blocks the race restarted with another great start. Concern was able to regain easily lead away things quickly. Boil down to a two horse race between the mercedes driver. Invest happen with how it's appearing to have things under control. The second stint was the biggest moment of danger of hamilton match. Step up in space on the hearts or looking after he'd softer mediums. They both ended up on the hard after their second stops after which for stopping closed in despite his own stop being a slow one but he never got within three seconds of the mercedes driver up from rebel in fact opted to pit the doctrine for a third time. Giving you had a large gap in hand over sergio perez behind peres was in third of the voucher tacit made a poor start and slipped backwards at town one which had paid to spark a series of smaller incidents that ended later crash which is of course not to say that there was any blame any of them peres done a fine job to run alex album in the second way boat and he looked set for a second successive podium until his engine let go with four laps remaining the race therefore finished under safety car hamilton. Taking his eleventh win of the campaign album completed the podium so joining me to discuss all of that and more tonight motorsport dot dotcoms f. one editor noble or tie sports. Fm reporter leaks and keep racing's executive editor. Stuart coddling now is gonna come to you first because you and i were in pretty constant throughout the early stages of that racist so trying to piece together what was going on once. We need that. Romain grosjean was all right. We try not. That's make sure. I raced on facebook dot com dot com accuracy. Accurate as it could be when it comes. I just just if you don't mind you could. You could talk us through the first thought and ended up the crash at the end of it. I could almost look through a transcript of whatsapp messages. Couldn't i is Yeah it wasn't very pleasant work actually a a not particularly nice to at the time given that we began the price s Before we knew what happens actually to out and before we okay we were starting to pick over some of the details leading up to the accident and and like you say it's it's one of those shunts is an accumulation of snow events and people doing things that builds towards a conclusion and and it does start with valerie. Batas having a slough guess away. He seemed to get away. When the lights went out he go to wipe perfectly well but then in the second phase acceleration not so much He wasn't the person off. Com was slough away was passed by morrison and gas lay album perez and then ricardo got passed batas. And that just meant that. You had this situation wearing bahrain. Three calls can go through taiwan abreast. Really won't you can get through ten to breast so that that's an. That's a natural funnel point that sort of vestibule between two warm an intern take so so you had basically people sorting things out with each other just just looking at my notes this squeezes all the way down the field and so i you have lewis getting a clean gas away. The stepan going through as well and then album sort of makes it stick and get through and you have ricardo an album sort of alongside each other and sorting out between themselves. That causes potus to slightly cheque's pace. Maybe a little bit through through turn to and then further back you have squeezes. You have leclerc veterans stroll who are also three abreast through san juan clerk. Poor gas away and then sent for a deeply into turn one see. Have an awful lot of people who are trying to make up ground. Having got a poor start so you have the situation where bats seems to be a little bit. As as album gets ahead of riccardo norris taps ghastly science has to get out of the throttle to avoid that squeeze with with with having to check up ahead of him vattel. Who's then arriving. Kind of three abreast with strollers rights. The clerk and his right has to check very hard to avoid running into the back of what's ahead of him. Hey jinx right stroll goes rights and then creates a scenario where. There's a lot of slow moving traffic and grow. John arrives at that scene. Say's all those costs loving ahead. You have reichen going off track on the left in an attempt to go around the so the slow moving cars and i think garage unnaturally in the heat of the moment goes to the right May be of either forgetting or not observing the caveat. He's five o'clock almost an caveat sunny there because he's been in a squeeze with with the alfa romeo's he's been slide down because he's had pretty much guy over the apex turn to avoid clunking into magnusson. If if if my notes reflect this accurately so all circumstances kind of build into into what we saw happen of very very fiery accident and one that was very scary indeed it was becomes. Talk about the really terrifying. The copying on fire grudge having to escape the inferno league. I wonder if we could just come to you. What is the latest information. We have at the time of recording about jones conditioning hospital so gross on as seen on the world fit. He was transported from the Initially exciting the medical card in the ambulance and the medical center and he was quick. They were quick to report that he had some burns to his hands and his ankles and then reports that he was being taken to the barring military hospital with suspected broken ribs and they've been conducted all of the x rays and all the checks her quiet out those to the east number bones which is really good news and the diagnosed that come back with the burns to the back of his hand. Side of c will require treatment. He's gonna remain sel overnights. They can complete treatment and Keep them on vacation base. Leads sure everything is okay. But remind he's in good spirits. He spoke to consign. He spoke to his family on the phone as well and then he also put a video up on instagram. A couple of hours ago which was really really good. say any. i'm okay and he was like well. No convenient okay. And then showed his hands. Which kind of in these white gloves to the cough to them and seemed very chipper in very good spirits
Saudis sporting soft-power attempt
"November twenty eighth the green lights over the greed in jeddah will go out and the first saudi arabian grand prix will into life and though twenty formula one qasr raise a mightily impressive in the start of a race. They will need to rev extra to have any hope of drowning out throughout about the propriety of this event occurring at all a row to which this very explainer is about to make a modest contribution. Let's look at the undeniable upsides. I which one take too long in and of itself. The saudi arabian grand prix will doubtless be a splendid spectacle. It is to be held on a street circuit in jeddah the precise layout remains to be confirmed but it seems certain one part of the track will conduct formula one's spelt machines down the konishi the boulevard which hugs the red sea coast. And the saudis will certainly dredge deeply from the bottomless pit of money to rent the proceedings as sumptuous extravagant as possible. It might even be of crucial importance in the context of next season. The saudi arabian grand prix will be the second lost race of the year. So if two thousand and twenty one turns out not to be yet. Another procession led by lewis hamilton. The wheel of his mercedes come at the calendar man lewis. Hamilton starts an incredible qualifying. They could still be much to play playful when the teams arrive in jeddah. So that's the good news. Then there are the reasons why this edition to the formula. One calendar is the stuff of foreign desk explainers. It is hopefully not necessary to reemphasize the variety and severity of the ways in which the saudi regime is one of the world's most repressive. We do not have all day still less all month. It is suffice to say a regime which ethically inclined businesses would tend to regard from the foreign bargepole formula one does not appear overly troubled on this front in recent years alone. Races have been held in russia as a fan bahrain and china. None of whom would be within sight of the podium at any sort of grand prix of human rights. it is probably not outrageous to suggest that formula one's principal objections to holding a race meeting in north korea. Iran equatorial guinea or turkmenistan would be logistical rather than an ethical. So we know what formula one wants from this. What's more interesting is what saudi arabia is off to. Saudi arabia has some history of recognizing the immense soft power possibilities of formula one in the late nineteen seventies and early nineteen eighty s saudi state airline saudia sponsored the uk based williams team australian driver. Alan jones carried their logo to the one thousand nine hundred world championship. Tell checkered flag often goes allen jones. what a wonderful way to pay is nineteen eighteen world championship. Riyadh's re engagement with the sport is being pitched as part of the modernizing reformist agenda of ambitious saudi crown prince mohammad bin salman though it does not feel untoward lee churlish to note that nba if to whole saudi arabia into the mid nineteenth century have made some distinctly old school d to via for example conducting a ruinous rampage in neighboring yemen and dispatching hitmen to murder a vexatious journalist the un's extrajudicial executions investigator. Agnes calamar has just released a report at pains a- damning picture of saudi arabia's role in the murder of journalists jamal has all of which is tricky to square with formula one's commitment to respect for human rights which f. one has typed out on their website and everything it promises to it says he engage in meaningful consultation with relevant stakeholders in relation to any issues raised as a result of out due diligence. A sentence which could have been designed to lull readers to sleep inside four syllables. Human rights groups are already speaking of their hope that lewis hamilton who barring mishap will be defending his seventh world championship. Next season might get out in front of this. How has grown more politically outspoken. This year in particular among the slogans on the black lives matter t shirt he wore at this year's emilia romagna grand prix was women's rights are human rights. A repeat performance would give saudi broadcasters amusing connections. Saudi arabia is clearly keen on what has become known as sports washing the tactic beloved unpleasant regimes of staging sporting circuses. In the hope that they may distract from your moral infirmities and impressed with your economic progress in recent years. Saudi arabia has hosted international gulf tennis equestrian and other tournaments formula one one of the planet's most popular television spectacles. He's a massive step up.

The Murder of Racing Legend Mickey Thompson
"Six weeks before the events of March Sixteenth Mickey Son Danny got a weird phone call from his Dad Mickey told him to be very careful and to make sure his wife Valorea and newborn son Travis were safe. He wouldn't provide any more details fast forward to March, and once again Danny's phone rang this time. It wasn't his dad it was one of his employees. He wouldn't say anything other than that Danny needed to drive to his dad's house in bradberry ASEP Danny got in his car and started driving you turn on the radio. There's a voice announcing some sort of celebrity murder, typical talk radio fodder but then Danny heard the word bradberry and his blood went cold as he pulled up to his dad's house at fifty three woodland drive. He saw that the driveway was blocked off with police tape news helicopters circled overhead Danny got out of his car and looked up the hill towards the house. His father's body surrounded by cops was lying prone on the concrete bloody and still. As, more family and friends learned of Mickey Intruders Murder One name was on everyone's lips. Mike Goodwin like I get that. That's a tough phone call to make. But I feel like the employees Kinda copped out a little bit whereas like, Hey, you should just go your dad's house like why what's wrong? I think maybe Disco Check Out Your Dad tells what's what's The anticipation of hearing bad news or the anticipation of senior DAD's dead body I. Think like paired with the radio and then pulling up in seeing police all around like having a piece of together to me. Seems, pretty rough I think that's I agree like the anticipation is much worse I I need to know like goes wrong. Just tell me I don't. I don't care like. Then you know and you can start dealing with versus like well is I mean it looks like it is but like hopefully, it's not like you still have that hopefully it's not hopefully it's not hopefully it's not and then you kind of have to like live the news, a number of times that way and also like if you don't know what's going on like you could think that your parents are still alive and so you're right. Maybe you're rushing and speeding on the highway, which is also like not great as well. Like if you know that there's like nothing you can do you're not gonNA put yourself in danger getting there. Yet. I can see how an employee would be like. I can't be the one to tell him but I. Yeah. I mean I'm sure that's what it was like. I don't know if it's my place but. It's sort of is if you're the one calling him, I would I would rather I would like preface of like. You need to go to your parents house like. There's been a murder is something. Yeah, how would you even say that like? Are they just say you can go like you're just like, Hey, your mom and dad had been murdered not good news. I Dunno very tough situation before we dive into the details of March sixteenth let's introduce might goodwin a name. You probably haven't heard before by the early eighties Mickey and his wife Trudy were managing Mickey Thompson Entertainment Group or Mt. A motorsports stadium tour that was one of the earliest touring off road racing series in the United. States. If you if you watch stadium trucks today M tag is. Basically the progenitor of that. Data Mickey Thompson basically invented stadium trucks which are one of the. It's one of the coolest forms of racing to watch. Yeah I love. It's like look like just like trucks just going off ramps. Are they like, do they kind of like? They kind of do. The wants today there. They mostly do on or street courses. Where they have the ramps and stuff like that. I mean you'll see him if you go to the Long Beach Grand Prix they're racing on the same course with ramp setup but guys. 'em Tagged Stadium tour was like they would go to places like the l a coliseum or these other big stadiums setup courses that are almost like dirt dirt bike or supercross courses rather, which will also mentioned later in the episode and race trucks inside of a professionals pro sports stadium. So pretty amazing although Mickey already had a successful performance parts company, he loved throwing himself into projects tinkering with. Other. Projects like hydro barriers which are now ubiquitous traffic barriers that can be transported and filled with water to be used on race tracks and highways. Hey, you know I'm thinking about putting water in a barrel. What do you think about that? It'll never work. I've been tinkering. Barrels a lot of water. Yeah. Never Catch people don't want water in their barrels they want barrels for the cement. ooh. However Mickey's true passion as he entered, his golden era was still am tag, which only had a small staff apart from Mickey and Trudy by Nineteen eighty-four, both nicky and his wife were experiencing health issues. Mickey famously subsisted on a terrible junk food diet that was now taking a toll and they finally decided to take off some of the load by partnering 'em Tags Events with a motor sports promoter known as Mike Goodwin.

"grand prix" Discussed on The Autosport Podcast
"Take into account. Mercedes incredible job the last two years it's going to be a struggle to to get that. And I guess he's also a function of how much Mansour was more confident that the car then then Ricardo portray you had running a bit closer to the before. So the reason. I put this in instead of the fifteen C., which was really a more refined version. We've got active suspension trashing and trial they experimented with UBS on the fifteen see as well. but luke or I feel that the fourteen be is just a bit cooler. So bringing in the fever facts, a slightly bigger rear ties read five knowledge amounts has helped me out the top are maybe it's a British bias which trying not to get sucked into too often. But for me for me, that is just a very cool car. No Corinne Channel think so as well he's he's at the pleasure of driving in recent times. Yeah. One hundred degree the easel think about Mansell Mania and that sort of Era Formula One and this is the car already the does take all those boxes and bring those memories back and All Bells and whistles basically isn't it is pushing the technical envelop as much as you can where Formula One car and as you said with the regulations subsequently going as they did meant that you could never really have anything like this again, wages kind of the well, let's put absolutely everything we can on there. Really. So yeah, I. Think I think is I think that is just no split itself and I think. On a fever writing I think we've gotTa, we've gotTa talk it up like I think the I would I would agree with your point is the definitive Williams Formula Lanka I would say now still so through goes the fourteen be and I think we may be similarly unanimous about the next car because if we're talking ultimate Formula One cars, the next period of that people talk about especially now because of the engine sounds. The sort of three Liter v ten era. And of see the Mark Ross Brawn Rory, Byrne John. Era. Ferrari and the the ultimate car that. Alex, the F, two, thousand and four, which is just an incredible pace. Okay. Isn't it is particularly keen stock by this I think it might be my favorite for of time just because of you know when I was growing up watching everything on TV and and being a fan of Marcucci at the time and what they did there it just it was the one that is the culmination of everything that secrity Johnson, Ross, brawn repair, and Michael, she everybody they're all comes together. Obviously they've been winning since two thousand and winning very well, two, thousand and three. Ever fight back for McLaren and Williams. You know there's an argument remade communicating could have won that season where we deserve like different Nisi different argument there. But. The F two four comes along and he's just again it's another step more brilliant is ends that run Ferrari bringing in? A carrying on the previous season's car for a few races and then introducing a new one, thousand three whereas thousand and four rock. Australia and it's just it's just the most dominant of the of the. Two thousand as well. Particularly Campaign She Maccabi Yeah Fifteen wins from twenty races. Iconic my question is maybe authorized straight care. How technically advanced? Would you say that compared to the other cause of the era off? It's hard to say because I think it was this is a case of rather than there being anything outlandishly. Technically advanced, but I think it was just. A call that was designed exceedingly. Well, it was. It was. As. You say it was a combination of. The home like I. Think it's about eight years. Since you had the shoe Braun Bun trio join same and if you remember a decade earlier. Ferrari was in absolute disarray before John Talk came aboard. It was an absolutely management shambles and Knicks owner came back as president on talk into crack the whip little bit. And this this was the combination of this was everything they'd worked towards. This was the result of Ross brawn banning like Sats, dello sport from the office because it was too negative about friar this is the culmination of Rossborough moving a engine department. Next to the chassis design department said they could work together. This is the culmination of Rory Byrne having all of these Matt Design ideas pushing that on the outside. IDEA. Just taking on all these ideas and keeping developing them, and obviously the two thousand and three call was so of. It was like a beats version of It had wolf these these aspects, but it wasn't quite refined yet and thousand four all those things refine them pushed the envelope and it was fantastic. And Kirsten can does it take that game changer box that we sort of Alex is kind of hinting with a technical thing. I think we're engineer away is incremental gains in areas. Isn't it a little bit las Mercedes but did think, could you make a case for it's for always relationship with Bridgestone and being able to develop a car and Tyre in unison? In a way you probably to a high degree than any. Anyone else before does that in itself, make a game changer making the tire development very much like making the engine development became it became a thing with working with the manufacturer. Do we think he gets that box ticks? As. A very good point. Yeah. Because that was the big downfall for Ferrari three, two, thousand and three was that they still have this this fluctuating type and the Michelin shelties able to be way ahead on occasion. For really worse than they really everything Olov FM with four carts gallons plays tire. She's and it's idea of saying mental gains. You look what went wrong lassie's and just do everything can't be marginally better in every single area and focus on it, and that's what they did with that car and obviously the relation with breach sign it was it became. became too close I think the lighting of many of. The seeds for the indeed thousand five shambles that we had, and ultimately it's high. Wall then disobey completely come two thousand and seven and it's so I think I, think game changer I think that's a that's a really good way to look at it. I mean in quite mature regulations of still take that box and still find another area they could innovate with that kind of thinking that does work. I'll also make the case on the rating as well. Just because it is it's just it's just bloody cove. Hockenheim last year. For the Grand Prix Schumacher did a show behind the wheel of that and I'd never seen the actually thousand four in the flesh before and I, never heard it before and both those despite this is I really don't mind the sound of the current generation f but you hear that and then just laugh it's amazing. Agree, and actually if you look old, our doesn't really feel that old sixteen years out. The white moves on track there so much lighter. Those cars were used to lower qualifying lap and eat so. Obviously it's very impressive, but he's a big turning speed. It's Kinda big downfall as big power whereas the the frog just looked so much more agile over curbs it's hopping and skipping around and you can see it's when mark she mattress really on it and at one with that, you can see the rotation into a corner. You can't normally see on the television how much is rotating a car but you're actually, county is really quite coin credible and there's actually no way this car is going to sell. Them to the. Definitely. I mean one thing that makes it look less dorm if you look at the qualifying. It was quite often beaten in qualifying. Or run very close and that was the coolest functioned the tires and the regulations the time. But in the race is just an example what Monzo in both Barrichello and she managed to have little moments early on choices CETERA. To them steam pass Jenson Button in the second half of the race been leading like he bites are different. There's a different race and they were second quick and everything else during the course of the race, which is a level of dominance as you say, with such material regulations. Amazing. So the one thousand four definitely goes through as the greatest Ferrari a very great for our team. which rather neatly brings us to the mistake want Mercedes team. Alex is already mentioned the w fife which got the ball rolling in two thousand, fourteen, sixteen wins out of nineteen and I'd like to throw up against the W..

I I think I'M GONNA have to agree with both Alexandria battle and that's I is the twenty five for that to Beasley the definitive like six with with club behind I mean. He will only driver to win and. Take the title in it but. That made I shouldn't diminish the greatness just because it was only success and. Had it not been for his untimely passing then. Maybe maybe that would have been the same story for the latest forty nine as well. Maybe he would. Of just enjoyed even more success with that car. Yeah, I think for that and also if we took my writing as well. It's a, it's a cool looking car. Lil. Skinny. That's how in the green and green yellow color vices as well. I think takes the boxes. I, have to say also sounds fantastic. We were fortunate to attract test with four low the follow talking about we've been Anderson Hathor last year and everyone talks rather culture theory. Of course, it's a great energy but the climax in the back of the low to sounds fantastic as well. So yeah, I'm very happy for the twenty five. To, go through and actually it'll fund factors. Well, the lowest forty nine still hold the record for the biggest pace advance. He's not converted to a world championship because in nineteen sixty seven, it was more than one percent faster than the next car and they managed not to win either the drives, Tarlov constructive start or say that probably that Scott Account against it as well. Surely, squandering such that would be like Mercedes not willing to change it this year with the w eleven which I think we're pretty sure is not going to be a problem for them. So the next pair of lotuses. Low to seventy two. So the contrast here, one of them lost a long time, but jake low to seventy nine it was it was there for a moment and then it was completely completely overwhelmed. So caught contrasting histories for the latest seventy-two in the night seventy nine. Yeah. I. Think if we're picking one it's a bit of a no brainer for me because. For me, the low to seventy two is the one that. Created. The Modern Formula One cars we now so I had. A the. Sites. This continued exploration into aerodynamics In every every Formula One car at the time was this sort of cheap cigar shape What latest did was they? They load the car a way shape or fight it which very technical term. But it created this been working with me explain things very very simply. Because this square cross section area, which allows you to create this a better poem pullman of inertia. So you don't have as much chassis flex is low to the ground. Therefore, you go less enter gravity was a better platform all the tools as well. So you. Know, the car did had It continued although by nineteen seventy five it wasn't tickly competitive a lot of the on the great kind of spawned from that you say the McLaren m twenty three. For example, that was very similar. Designed to the lighter I think was the penske three four. That was very, very similar in design as well. Because they were owed it's. The very least their aesthetics to the late central. To if not more are actually agree I think it also set the template for modern racing car would look like both in one and elsewhere. And at one twenty world championship. Grand Prix doing his long long career, which is more than any other car on this list and some of the ones that get closer done in a season where they were just more races in it's dominated. This is its first win came in nineteen seventy. It was still in one, thousand, nine, seventy, four, and those twenty wins don't count the non chance if one races at one as well. We used to have quite a few of those. And Jackie extra still able to win at brands hatch in on seventy four. So the car really was was old by then and Alex to conic as well. If we're going for the fever rating, Gold Leaf and GPS, it doesn't really get much better than that. Does it. After. Easy Sake. have iconic with those colors. Just screams the era doesn't it? You can just picture in your mind. So easily again, coming back to the longevity factor for me I think this has to win that I to seventy two. The latest seventy-nine just just kept going didn't they kept going and kept being successful and you just think of US think of. Your and Fittipaldi, and you can. You can just see the colors just iconic. Absolutely one one draws chance you with written in seventeen posthumously sadly, arteries accident Monzer Emerson Fittipaldi non seventy two, and it did win the champion seventy three as well.

"Welcome to the first of the new mini series celebrating seventy years of autosport. The first issue of magazine on the twenty fifth of all was nineteen fifty. And to celebrate that milestone, we've decided to take on the challenge or picking out the graced cars. History of. By category fairly predictably, we're going to kick off with go pre cows. I'm your host chief editor having Turner and join up three special guests. The first is normally hosts and he's outgrowing pre Edesur Alex calendar Orcas. Welcome. You'll your pundit for once how does that? How does it feel not to be hosting delightfully relaxing I must say you know I've seen this is this is classic auto iceberg. What twitter would tell us all we care about is Formula One who started off. With grand, Prix cars, it's just typical. Really you know it's not it's not what it used to be frankly for those wanting to know what other categories we're. GonNa go through we are going to go through sports, cars, touring cars, rally cars, Gina single-seaters, and in decals not necessarily in that order, we'll pick a winner from each of those episodes and then we'll have a grand finale where we have a proper argument about it to pick the greatest competition color of all time. So my second guest is our technical editor and that's one of the oldest positions in audible because John Bolster was famously technical editor for the first thirty four years old sport Jake Botswana leg. So big shoes to fill their I'm not that old y'all know I've done about a year plus of that of that stint. So a few years to go yet for a matching a Serb bolster. We'll see how that goes. As as you're the boss you think he's got a an intimate lost another thirty three years. Do you don't get to drive as many interesting causes a boast. Himself into all sorts of. Fantastic Machine Roy up to Grand Prix cars actually so Yes sadly, we can't offer that same thing to us all of these days I've never seen actually drive of claims he can. That's about the amount of time to the policies test. Doing driving and it's very stressful why currently own my parents recently scrapped car which hunt been used for about three years but it was a Renault Cleo and the electrics in it were. All And it was just a permanent source frustration. That's GonNa put me off of driving for a few of months. Well in a desperate attempt to try and get things back on track I'm going to introduce. My final guest, who also is the only one here who's brought some proper memorabilia in the background most bought memorabilia. That If One News Hound Luke Smith Lake welcome to. Welcome to this looking forward to it. Yeah definitely. To get into it got a Ferrari sports car my, which is really more fitting for one of the upcoming Alpacas you'll be daring. Yeah. Really have a look back through. History and relative newbie on the books obviously maggots actually be. Looking back on seventy as of this once magazine. Fantastic right. So the criteria that we'll be looking at. First of all, how successful the car was fairly obviously how much they changed the game of SOM- cars did change the guy more than others? So, we'll be fat Tunein as well on the now. Out of jail free card, which a fever rating where we basically get to say what we like the most so back, wriggle-room. I think so. And that's actually gives us a good place to start because the first car that we're going to talk about. Is. One. Of those cars I think it's just absolutely fantastic. We are starting prewar pre second world war. So before all sport even begun. Absolutely iconic design the Mercedes W UNSEE five, five point six, liter straight eight supercharged machine producing nearly six, hundred, fifty brake horsepower. On ties if you've ever seen a picture of one, you'll think how they keep that thing on the road. So so so jake, this is one of those sort of like conic silver arrows source sets up the legendary for for Mercedes motorsport. Well, the thing is it was originally born out of Mercedes that wasn't massively successful as the the W twenty five. When it was driven by Mercedes engineered. Out who was contract to design the W one five. found. It was the suspension was was so Steph, there was causing the chassis to flex news last obviously, just dreadful because this thing hasn't gone. Grip. Bright Down quite law. So that has completely changed will they're doing? The stiffened the chassis in soften the suspensions swung the other way when they were developing it as you mentioned, pat supercharge stray eight. And I'm sure there not allow people who because you know supercharging usually of restricted to conflict like the American muscle car seen something like that, and it's also difference between children and savage. you have a charger that's generates the compression through. The exhaust gas the SIF charger is actually stuck on the engine. So although it helps compressed the air to create that clean combustion also saps where power as well but it was a massive engine hugely hugely powerful engine. and I'm sure that you've got a lot more more on than I do but it was yeah became a very, very successful car the well before the war. You're absolutely right there cost also union with the other, the other major, German effort, a Nazi backing, both both of those efforts in Grand Prix racing taking initiative with the C type. which is a middle rear engine car, which is something that will come back to later on. Take Initiative Nine, hundred, thirty six but the W anti fife. Basically he was. Mercedes striking back it took six major winds and we'd have Graziella was the European champion in one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, seven, and the European champion in those days effectively was was the forerunner of the world championship and just some numbers for some people who think that a bit too old I'm not so interested. Because we talk about average speeds, Grand Prix racing and the record is a little bit over one hundred, fifty miles an hour of the Grand Prix of all time in most races now one. Well if get near one, hundred, forty dollars, that's quick. But in nineteen, thirty, seven at the Irish Ryan and. Hermann Lang one heat two at an average speed of one hundred and sixty two point six miles an hour and the fastest lap actually set by also union over one hundred and seventy miles now so. That's with no downforce. No safety features until you at crash helmets I think that sort of puts it. Okay. So it's a very high speed track of course it was. I think genuine heroes and legends, the the drivers that climbed into those things and try to try to time them. It was the year that they were going. So quickly I was the cause Razzi breaking bits, you just flying off their. Well regularly say punishing. They were although though that did happen but the.

The Racing Family that Death Couldnt Stop
"Welcome back everyone to pass gas As always. I'm your host, Nolan Sykes joined by my friends. One Joe Weber. What's up? And I'm sorry, I'm trying I'm trying to bring the energy, but this is also a very somber script already, and so I want to be entertaining Bhai also want to. Honor respectful. Done that. Be Entertaining, but respectful. And James. Humphrey. You hear him talking now. To, two. The river. All right anyway. gas. So today's are two part our second part of our story on the Isle of Man. T T we're talking about the Dunlop family, are you guys ready to get into it I? Am I think I just want to point out I. Think you're man is the one of the six nicknames I've ever? That's a great and I said well good. It's so it means it means you're a nice guy. It. Yet. It's a rare nickname that sounds really cool. But it also means you're Nice Kylie. Guy that the go-to guy whenever anything needs to be done. Man He's your man. Love it. Great. Start to great episode. Let's dive into it when Marjorie and Ian Forest and their twin teenage sons moved to their house on Douglas Road on the isle. Of Man. One. Of the things they look forward to was the opportunity to watch the legendary I'll of man tourist trophy races from their front yard after all, it's not every day that you can watch the best road racers in the world. Take a corner, your corner in front of your house at speeds of over one hundred, twenty miles an hour. Unfortunately, the forest family had no idea what they were in for on a practice day in two, thousand five, they heard a crash outside Yawkey Carlson, a Swedish racer had run into their gate and flipped into their garden. The Swede was severely injured. Medics rushed to the scene, but there was nothing they could do Carlson's name joined the two, hundred, fifty plus other men who had died on the t course. The horror didn't end there though officials told the forest family that was to logistically challenging to delay the practice and move Carlson's body instead who Carlson was zipped into a body bag on the Front Garden for ninety minutes as the road marshals waited for practice to end, all the garrisons could do was closed their curtains and forbid their sons from looking outside. We'll I got. Doubts pretty awful. there's no way around it. Motorcycle racing is dangerous. Even riding a motorcycle daily traffic puts you at risk of dying in a crash twenty, nine times higher than that. If you were in a car at the same time, motorcycle riders and racers understand that danger. In fact, it's part of what draws them to the sport. Unfortunately, there's no real way around risking your life unlike cars where technology has greatly improved safety and driver protection motorcycle crashes, you're basically experiencing the equivalent of a no seatbelt through the windshield accident every single time. And as dangerous as motorcycle racing is the Isle of. Man. T he stands out as a full degree of magnitude more dangerous than the rest. First of all public road courses like the Isle of Man were writers have to contend with what they call the furniture. That's sick. They're talking about telephone poles, ditches, garden walls. These are much more dangerous than closed circuit courses or dirt bike riding and racing. While those races do see fatal accidents there hasn't been a deadly crash in a speedway race since twenty sixteen and in the twenty years before that, there is an average of less than one year similarly motocross raced at much lower speeds also sees lower fatalities unlike public road races. These courses are designed with plenty of room to minimize danger to the writers. So if Motorcycle Race Games skydiving public road courses are like base. Base jumping in a wing suit taken an already dangerous activity and bringing it as close to the edge as possible. However, even among public road races, the Isle of Man is easily the most dangerous in the twenty seven years. The T T was part of the World Grand Prix, championship thirty, six racers died on the isle. Of Man. Obviously. More than one year. In comparison at Imatra, there were two fatalities in sixteen years at Hockenheim, three deaths in twenty six years. The second deadliest race after the man was a circuit day SPA francorchamps which. Baby Franker Jam Cams, which saw ten deaths in thirty five years making the Isle of Man and average four times deadlier than even the second most deadly race.

So what did you make your of the both their responses I wanna say that James Vowles does have this or it doesn't a you know we've heard. The voucher is James Before we arrive. Lewis is James. He just has this way of saint drivers. This ends now and they'll do it, but I think when the race engine is Well, he's taking more care than me. So you know I'm Gonna I'm GonNA carry on, and so he is told to stop Is Sort of like over a fraternal relationship in a way he's like well. He's doing it. Why can't I?

They have been told to hold them off. So tighter about it tonight and he denied he said up. Don't get to. Get to Worried about a big conspiracy. We all team owners returning to hitting team orders we do team orders the pair them afraid to raise under the right conditions, which basically means they can raise his heart as they like as long as they don't compromise the chances of Mercedes winning races and I think you'd have to be a bit naive to think. The missiles would issue team would like that and use exactly the same well two and a one in. Office Fascist. Go here! They do it again. It'd just be very very obvious within the I guess multi seven, seven, four four might be a little bit more difficult for them to get mouth around, and he did say in the in the pace race press conference that you know. There was no point was he told there be any any team? Orders freezing freezing the race, though, Frito race all the time. Taking Imagine Nico Rosberg was still in the second Mercedes alongside Lewis Hamilton, what happens a Batas at the end of qualifying if Roseburg had done? That would have blown up. Louis how I could imagine you've been at Monaco was the two thousand eight, hundred fifty, whenever it was all those years ago when he went down the escape road and got pole position that way. Whereas on this occasion, there was none of that. There's not a Sony its own. For me, it's just a thought that's gone off in my mind. There was no there was no no mention of any BLUEFIN. Hard. Dumbo, wherever because of course he, you know he he, he still finished second on lap when it comes qualifying, but in the end it costs Mercedes quite daily that often bought. Ask because eventually drops Hamilton down. The OUGHTA in terms of starting on the grid so. If that had brought us haven't gone off in qualifying. The rights could look completely different from his eighties. I've been a simpler so John. I want to come to you. What did you make of Batas? Performance overall the whole weekend a thing he was just on it, but he's been on Grand Prix weekends in the past, but I think this is a weekend where he was on it and also had the rub of the green, basically the. Scene in the policies I'd probably weekends. He's outperforms Lewis, and then certain factors all go against him as you remember getting a in Pacu or safety car coming out of the wrong time. This was just a weekend where he executed everything perfectly. he had the rub of the green in terms of making a mistake in qualifying on the the second round with a yellow flag. Then this three sixty video appearing last night, which Lewis got the penalty, which gave him a breathing space early on. And, then maybe even the gearbox issues were were a factor in helping into because it meant the pair them one pushing to the Max. There wasn't really the opportunity for Lewis to launch a massive attack in come at him so. Obviously we can perform brilliantly. Everything went his way, and he did it with. The wind is gonNA peak and deliver. Ten Rice becomes like that. It looks on the face of as one report is best performances just in the way that it all my seem destined to be Lewis Hamilton gets Poland wins the race. Judging by the is, he puts top three practice sessions. Just look so simple what he was doing every time right guard program up fast this, but bought US turn around. Around. He said he works out where he looked at where he was weak compared to commit to. You might wear where we could find time any nail those corners. He was a town three and four, and that's how he ends up. Paul position thinks he left on the table because he'd quicker in sector one before we had his often qualifying so that we. Could have been even better. Earning did make a slight mistake, but I do wonder about where what would have happened basically, because how was coming back in at the end of that soft highest stint, and he just looked like he had the bit between. You say from when Batas comes into the pit lane after Magnussen's. SAFE to go for my business car. The Right Front looked absolutely naked on his car, and it just seemed that may behind was hat slight edge. Had everything worked out. Straightforwardly. What did you make of Hamilton's performance today? I agree I think he did well to fight back from. The Grip Tounsi starting fifth the he made some good moves early on to get up. The order of was definitely helped by the resigning from stop the gave him second place, but then I think he was about seven seconds back for Botox when the Moore site, and he quickly slice that gap in more than half by the time that the safety car came out, not trick. That ran a pitstop so i. think it would have been interesting. That has maybe one got the undercover the over the other, just how that would have played out without the safety car, and then yeah, as you say the. Second half of the race as well we did see balancing really closing up on Batas even the middle concerns from Sadi's about the about the reliability of the cars. The parents was really trying to pressure. C May sat within the for a number of laps. It wasn't until that the final safety calls. Things really cool down again and neighbors. Maybe that's a bit of the physical fire. I think he would have been really interesting. See just how Mercedes manage that, because ultimately they had the buffer to album behind, and they could have said both Koslow. Just take it a bit easier, but you are still free to write and freeze fight, and and he's how far both drivers would have pushed out I..

"Com live covering as you as you do. Enjoy doing I know I am of the opinion that the the five second pounds of fat given the context of. The race of the of the ties they run, you know album will obviously on the software homebound and I think at that point when your nursing struggling car, and you're on a heart attack ties. Many many laps older I think you do have to resist the temptation to fight that to odd but as as Lucas at that was literally. albums. To maneuver, and but then again you get level. Hamilton as well and say you know he could move the right a little bit but then again you are still looking at that in. You're looking at these slow mo on boards and getting. Oh, well, he could have moved to the thing. Is that happened like that happened in a split second? and. At the end of the day, these drivers all human, although that they've got fantastic reflexes. This still happened in a microseconds second tiny microcosm of time I think yeah I to conclude I think within the context yet. The five seconds he was fat, but There is a bit blame on both of their shoulders. Agree with that I, think that yeah. Probably deserving the penalty, just because of how far album was ahead. Appreciate what you're saying. Lico can the point that. I. Made was the how far how far album was from the edge of the track, but he was just so far ahead that it just seemed it just seemed clumsy. You might as well. He was fully committed pages didn't. He just you know just just just from the way the way you know the way that the way that it panned out in the fact that the report so far ahead, but. I do agree with your point about alborn in the. Again it, oh my scene! He didn't have to do that. He still has good. Still Ten laps left to run now. Christian Horn has come out and said well. You know the event that you had was on tile warm up and it was the fact that he was on the soft. Some cities would have switched their hearts on eventually choosing dash getting involved. You never know we'll. That was gonNA. BE A. A factor. Yeah, you just sense that maybe I want could have could have been a little bit more patient, but then again. He thought he'd made the move done so yeah, really controversial incident and again what we saw last year that conclusion, the Australian Grand Prix shows the class and mattress tapping the difference being they were much more side-by-side amber. Stopping had much more rights to edge. Leclair out because he was hanging around the outside when you hadn't really earned it whereas one earned I think that's what the differences here and that's why the penalty justified for Lewis Hamilton now. It looks if it's always always writing. The REPORTS ICEBERG DOT COM I definitely handled that very calmly and was not who stressed at any point. A race to make Formula One coverage debut, and after say it was very enjoyable. It's out long last as well after straying into didn't get to see any on track action there Australia those was interesting from a journalism point of view to see of everything collapsing around around the event, and then oversee almost effectively around the world when we got. But but yeah, the big. The big I thought was going to be. The big story of the race was the Mercedes reliability issues now because that was that was a major major major talking point, but it was the fact that both drivers in in the end Mercedes had to get James Hours chief strategist to come on the radio and worn both bottles, and Hamilton stay. Stay off the curbs because it is critical to your continued participation in the race so Jayco if we could if we could come to you first of all, can you explain what the issue was? And why in particular? The cubs at the red bull ring were causing havoc, they report over the radio. That was sense a she and toto. Wolff said over the race the any.

"Dan Pass Gas. We're talking about the early years of Ayrton Senna. You know him as the legendary driver famous for winning multiple Formula One championships in nineteen, eighty, eight, nineteen, Ninety and nineteen ninety one he won an incredible forty one gram freeze on seventeen different tracks over the course of nine seasons. You probably also know how the story ends. At the age of thirty four while racing at the nineteen ninety four, San Marino, Grand Prix Senna crash on lap, set on leaving the track and a speed over a hundred eighty miles per hour, slammed into a concrete wall, killing him on impact. The. Final Jenny home two with L.. Tragic death cut a storied career short and much like Kurt Cobain, Heath Ledger or to park. It froze centers, accomplishments, and magnetic personality in amber. Deprived of the slow decline to any great talent at the top of their profession will eventually fall. Victim to these names are instead forever frozen their lawyers, and so they remained. Forever Young. Senator is now a legend. But where do legends begin with an origin story of course? So what senators version of being bitten by a radioactive spider, finding a weird lamp, genie or floating down the Nile in a basket made of Reeds? Well like Spiderman Aladdin or Moses Senna his monogamous, but before Senate was sent off, his last name wasn't even Senna at all. His parents worry that he was uncoordinated and even had him test report. He was born into wealth, but although wealth can definitely give you access to the world of bracing, it can't make fast and Santa wasn't just fast. He was the fastest. So what was the moment Senna truly became Senate to answer that we need to start on March twenty first nineteen sixty the day. When in Sao Paulo Brazil. Ericsson senator silver was born. Welcome to pass gas. That was a long intro. Great Man I'm. I got a little choked up there for a second. I mean this guy is so important and just such. Like I, don't know he's just a legend, and he's just like so important to so many people, and I'm really excited that we're going to die, have really deep into his life, but I mean just. A man just. I got a little teary eyed. When you're talking about the forever, young stuff is yeah I sure. Senna is a like I said an intro. He's a legend. Almost like a mythic figure at this point. Just such a hallowed name so revered in in in motor sports and the car world in general. Just like Oh yeah, you hear senators like he was I mean he was the greatest, but like it's just like an instant assumption of just like. Perfection basically right. Yeah, he's like Michael Jordan. Yeah, no thought given to, and we're going to see why that is because. There's a lot of good reason for that I. Think the moment where it hit where I was like Oh, damn was when? You when I I didn't realize he was thirty four when he died and I'm just about to turn thirty four, and so I'm like. I gotTA. Do. Joe You're the air and of automotive podcasting damage. Out Year Man. Is talking about how I am scared about dying. But what I've noticed is a lot of a lot of pieces that talk about center. Don't really dive into his early life. which is what we're going to do today? And I'm really excited about that. Hopefully will give people some insight into where this dude came from, and I, think yeah without further ado. Let's get into the life. The early life of one Ayrton Senna. Are you guys ready? I'm ready. Ready sale ever be. Ready, legit. You WanNa give. Fired up I think my new my new thing is. Fire Dub! Different words fired up. I could see that on a shirt for sure, but D. U. P. Oh, yeah, fire! Up I get a man. It's great. It's solid. C. memes are better when you explained. A Ayrton Senna Da. Silva was born in nineteen sixty in Sao. Paulo Brazil at the pro Ma tre. I'm going to by the butcher every Brazilian. Names Zillion were. Portuguese Brazilian. I'm going to butcher at all today. Just letting you know. Pro Monterey! Maternity Hospital of Santana a hospital I assumed was named after the legendary guitarist areas. Warn! Ayrton's father Milton Dasilva was a landowner and factory owner, and among other businesses Milton owned an auto parts company, and his knowledge and connections within the industry would become a key entry point for Airton into the world of racing

"It's been over twenty five years since Senna's death and there is still not a definitive judgment on exactly what happened that day in Imola but most everyone can agree that that tragic weekend was a turning point. Formula One racing. The sport was forced to take a more serious approach towards safety around on people season. The calls were really loud incredibly quick and you could really drive a wack kid and it was a lot harder for the drive. It's well to control you. Know in the headlight manual gearboxes. They I mean senator for example. He finished Monica races with a big hole in the middle of his hand from all the cages yet to the Like a thousand gearchange a massive blisters on just inside. That's not I mean. There's next you know people drivers Paul now. Basically says the real physical sport there since San Marino just one f one driver has been killed in a Grand Prix Crash Jules Bianchi died in twenty fifteen from head injuries. He suffered in an accident at the Japanese Grand Prix in two thousand fourteen. The fact that was twenty years in between Formula. One fatalities is evidence of the Sports Safety Crusade. After San Marino the Grand Prix drivers association which still remains enforced. Today was reformed on the morning of that fateful race. With a view to improving safety in f one Santa was named director along with Gerhard Berger and Michael Schumacher at what would turn out to be his last drivers briefing then in the late ninety s. A number of steps were taken to improve. The car's cockpits were lengthened and reinforce the suspension was strengthened and the wheels were attached to the car by tethers to stop them from flying off in two thousand and three ahead and next support system was introduced which is designed to protect the spine by attaching the helmet to the shoulders and in two thousand eighteen. The Halo System was introduced on Formula. One cars which protects our driver's head during a rollover and from large pieces of flying debris like wheels many race tracks were also remodeled after nineteen ninety four by German engineer. Herman Telka their wider and have bigger run off areas on the curves and many fans further away. The sport we see today is very different and as a result some would argue last exciting. The nineties were very competitive. Time that we're very exciting time. It was very tragic to lose Aaron Senate in the Mid Nineties but after that you have the rise of Michael Schumacher and Ferrari with me. Talking in sport continued to become more international and I think as more money came into the store and there was more money around the world to bring the store to more exotic places in a lot of ways. You kind of lost that that purity and it's still remained elite and it's it's still. It's still a hot ticket and a lot of places a very expensive ticket including in Montreal. But I don't think globally as the it's been able to keep hold of the footprint that had had the sports landscape overall the tracking in Imola. Italy was changed following the death. Severinsen Berger and Senna and then in two thousand and six San Marino was dropped from Grand Prix schedule altogether in recent years though there have been talks about bringing formula went back to the race track as statue of Ayrton. Senna was erected in a park across from the corner where he died and fans still pin flowers and handwritten notes to offense nearby. Senna's memory is alive in many other ways as well. The Internet for one has allowed young fans who weren't even born when he was racing to watch the old races that made him a legend. A wide variety of books and films have also been made about Senate including Popular Twenty ten documentary which includes home movies and photographs from the driver's family and friends. It's an excellent behind the scenes. Look at his life and if you haven't seen it I highly recommend you check it out to this day. Said his favorite soccer team still honors him by chanting his last name before matches schools in Brazil teach students about his life and racing career and even local airlines have painted fleets of jets in the famous yellow and green colors of Senna's iconic racing helmet after Senna's death. His family set up the Ayrton Senna Institute a nonprofit organization that helps educate Brazilian children. The organization is run by sister. Vivian and it's helped. Millions of kids with money raised from licencing sense image and from the production of a comic book series based on the driver called Sina or little center. And we can't forget about Roland ratzenberger. A man whose death was overshadowed by a racing legend Ratzenberger was buried in his home country of Austria and inscription on his gravestone reads. He lived for his dream a miniature race car and a Helmet Razon on top. Ratzenberger's parents moved into their son's apartment in Salzburg Austria after the accident as a way of ensuring that his memory was not forgotten. The home was littered with racing trophies and pictures of their ever smiling sun on the fireplace mantle. His father Rudolph has no bitterness towards the sport. He says he's just happy. That Roland achieved his dream to be a formula one driver..

"The San Marino Grand Prix race started under a dark cloud a massive start line pile up saw a wheel fly into the crowd and several spectators and the grandstand were injured. It was as if this weekend was cursed and sadly the worst was yet to come the race restarted and ran under a yellow flag with Santa leading the pack for four laps behind the slow moving safety car. When the cars were finally released Senate continued to lead ahead of Schumacher and Gerhard Berger then on lap seven the second lap at racing speed Senate entered the tamburello corner. This was a renowned part of the track that had seen many crashes in the past the corner was very bumpy and had dangerously little room between the track and a concrete wall which protects the center. No River that runs behind it. As Senate went into the Timber Elo. His Williams race car suddenly veered off course and slammed into the wall. He entered the corner at one hundred ninety two miles per hour and then breaks hard downshifting twice to slow down before impacting the wall at one hundred and thirty one miles per hour. Goodness gracious punt. Open the center has join chanted. You can see Know whether it was a little reverse billion com horrified fans watched as Senate remained lifeless in the cockpit of his car course officials stood by waiting for medical personnel to arrive. It felt like time stood still though it seemed excruciatingly slow medical aid. Was there in about sixty seconds. Rescuers struggled for two minutes as they attempted to remove Santa from the car finally he was freed and he was laid on the ground. F One race Dr Syd. Watkins was at aside Watkins who was also a close personal friend said as soon as he saw Senate he knew. The injury was fatal. A suspension part had pierced Senna's helmet. He was likely killed.

"At righty on Fangio and Mawson and then it was both glamorous and dangerous in the early days of the F one World Championship. Death was almost a regular occurrence between nineteen fifty two and nineteen sixty. Two twenty. Three drivers were killed in accidents. The drivers lives were on the line at every race. It's believed because of the high death rate there was a very unique camaraderie among drivers in this golden era of F. One driver from the fifties said the fear of death made them have a better appreciation of life and it led to many lasting friendships up and down the grid by the nineteen eighties and nineties. Formula One racing had changed dramatically fatalities. Were no longer common things to safety standards that were developed does. The sport grew in fact leading into the deadly weekend in Nineteen ninety-four the last time an f one driver had died during a race was twelve years earlier in Nineteen eighty-two Ricardo Poletti was killed at the Canadian Grand Prix and Montreal in a horrible accident on the starting grid that was also when they renamed the Montreal track to Siquijor Yield Villneuve. They'll move is a Canadian racing icon. He died in May of that year during qualifying in Zolder Belgium and the Montreal track just an hour away from where he was born was where he won his first f one race in the nineties. You might remember that. The VILLNEUVE name came back in the spotlight as his son. Jacques won the indy. Five hundred in nineteen ninety-five then made the jump to f one in ninety six and won the title in ninety seven another thing that a changed by the eighties and nineties was camaraderie among drivers. Thanks in part to one of the greatest rivalries of all time in sports there have been many legendary rivalries just think Ali versus Frazier McEnroe versus Borg or Magic Johnson versus Larry Bird but few can compare to the battle between Ayrton Senna and Elaine. Prost rivalry between the two of them is one of the best. Sports rivalries across the board let alone in front of the one. That's Brendan Dunlop. Sports broadcaster and Lifelong F. One Fan he says. The two drivers were polar opposites in many ways. A lot of it is that aired incentives so comfortable in his own skin. He was supremely confident. he'd really didn't care what other people thought. Olympics wasn't as Secure in his in his own skin and I think that that played into his actions a lot into his rivalry and his relationship with whether the obviously from a competitive standpoint. They both wanted to win. They both want to be the best. And I think that's Alain Prost could see that. Senator was a little bit better. A lot of people's eyes is one of the best race car drivers of all time so I think impressed Wanted wanted that pedestal. Senate came around and pros can have that PROS DOT COM FORMULA. One in the early eighties and the curly haired. Frenchman took his first championship in nineteen eighty five and then again in eighty six go both while driving for McLaren. Prost was popularly known as the professor because of his scientific and methodical approach to racing he perfected an economic style. He started a race conservatively. Took it easy on the brakes and tires and then made a late race challenge. If pros needed to finish shape six than a race to maintain his championship lead. He would sit in sixth place holding that position instead of pushing for a win and risk losing at all then there was senna. He turned F. One into a contact sport. He put everything on the line. Each time he raised. Senator went flat out all the time. Not even the rain would slow down. Say He's the one guy for it. You give him a shopping. Just drop the wheels off air. That's Ibar Malik. Author of the book. Nineteen Ninety four the untold story of a tragic and controversial F one season he says Senate was thrilling to watch. There's lots of senator fans out there. Because he's scared. Say obvious you watch any video of him and you really see him like Manhattan in the car and spots the flying and Senate was also straight out of Hollywood central casting. The handsome young Brazilian was often photographed with beautiful models and actors waterskiing or racing around town on a motorcycle. He grew up in Brazil the privileged son of a wealthy businessman and in the largest country in South America. He was basically God not just for his racing skills. Though also because of his deep commitment to giving back to a country struck by poverty and unrest Senate was different from most other racers. He was deeply religious and he spoke in a way that fans weren't used to in one thousand nine hundred eighty eight he qualified in pole position at Monaco. Enduring the qualifying lap. He famously said he no longer felt in control of the car. In the normal way instead he felt like he was in a different dimension. Finish that race but later that year as he captured his first world title. Santa said that he saw the face of God as he crossed the finish line in Japan. The spiritual aspect of Senate seemed in stark contrast. With this single-minded determination he had towards winning. But that was sent a man of contrast a ruthless racer. Anna Gentlemen ferociously ambitious and deeply caring at that time. A lot of people didn't view race car drivers as athletes. I'm sure there are some who still don't but Brendan Dunlop. Says Senate played a big part in changing that he had a diet? Athletes have at that time removed red meat from his diet and he trained relentlessly in the off season stories about his vacations. They had this beautiful beach ouston that he would spend months at that and the the off season where so much longer than they are now and he would be running twenty kilometers four or five times a week in the off season throughout the entire break just to be physically fit and ready for the season as possible and tell us partner success and I do think really was the trend setter that made the outside world understanding believe that race car drivers were actually athletes and I know that a lot of race car drivers that follow us him as the ultimate example of how the dedication hard work and the commitment. There's so much more of it off. The track than there is on the track. Senna and Prost became McLaren teammates in nineteen eighty eight McLaren dominated in the late eighties and initially the pair had a mutual admiration for each other at the end of the first season together. Senna beat Prost by three points to win the world championship ending any warm feelings between the two on the track. Things came to a head in October. Nineteen eighty nine at the Japanese Grand Prix. This race would become one of the most notorious in f one history. It was the climax of prosed and Senna's tumultuous two year rivalry as teammates McLaren through a stop beyond his car is the red and white McLaren lawn. Cross two men who do not like each other at all but the only two men with shot at the nineteen eighty nine Formula One world championship Senate needed to finish ahead of Prost in the race to win the championship with just six laps. Left in the race prost was leading senna but then in a desperate move Senate tried to dive passed. Prost at a tight chicane. Then they locked wheels and both cars left. The track.

They probably wouldn't be able to do that. All Oh you just leave out there and hope for virtual safety car safety coverage what they've gone saw yeah the credit Mercedes for having that little gamble on key to well the whole point of it was to put themselves in a position where they could do something different to Ferrari in the race so if I missed it while unfinished one say only conduct liken that to out beautiful success a week ago it when we had a massive points whole infancy premier elite with Man City midfielder Kevin Bryner what evolved Vice Captain Vice Captain Tim I was captain didn't play and therefore the point scores Gosh shifted onto the bryner and there's a lot of people just saying this is people like that. Just really lucky because that's no. It's not the whole point of making a decision like that. Is that you put yourself in a position where you you basically stacked deck in your favor so if something does go slightly differently to how you expect to go then then suddenly plays out in your favor and that's exactly the Mercedes they criticize roar in the past for not doing doing pointless gambles rather than just playing the hand and being differing in case something in case something happens. This wasn't a case ace of the Mercedes Ferraris both being on on sauce in the first in and Mercedes coming over the radio to to to Lewis and saying okay box opposite to Cla. That's that's doing. There is okay. We're going to try and see if we can make something different happen. The fact that they were on the different ties put themselves in a position from the very beginning to do something different yeah very very much we should say for one lost ultimately Nara do understand why they did it. Once the safety fifty co eventuality cartoons or rail safety cop because George Russell went off under the vast say there was some kind of fighter in the front left of the car until it wasn't a brake failure or something else he he also. I've a a young what was the WINCO under the the wheel of something about one entirely show before I love scalp it from the seconds so the safety call goes out. They decided you saw Hitler Claire to get an answer on solves that cost one place only leaked Bossaso calls for stopping. It started nine. Thanks to his place grid penalty so he wasn't anywhere near close enough so basically they sacrifice second-place drops a third to give themselves a dollar advance h that they hoped would allow Leclerc's Paul spots ice and Hamilton ideal world of course he resolutely just couldn't they couldn't even Marie seriously threatened Balsas no I I was quite surprised by that because although we know that Ferrari's engine advantage manifests itself most powerfully in short bursts so let's say a qualifying lap or potentially a safety car restart. Maybe on the first lap of the Grand Prix a certainly don't think it was a coincidence a Leclair didn't come under threat from anyone other than fettle on the run dance turn one despite being clearer failed because as we saw that car doesn't need talk it doesn't need the IRS and it could still hang on compared to a car chase in behind when it's a full rack so he had that situation for Karori normally and then when it Ki- when it came to declare needn't pause Batas even with drs even with that massive rundown to turn to flat-out right right hand kink turn one. He never even come close to mount proper attack. There were two sort of half hearted looks inside yeah exactly the which which I was quite surprised by because it's not just a case of Ferrari should fundamentally have that speed advance Jovan Mercedes to launch an attack also just fancy. Leclair attack much brought us in defense because we've seen before the Batas not to be too critical a harsh on him. It's not they just roll with various just he's the stern is the races is the fact that Mercedes and converted that into a relatively comfortable one to the finish which is the the final insult to Ferrari wasn't what we should talk a little bit about Mercedes. We talk some what they did with. Its is while buts. What should we make this one see see from from Mercedes Hamilton's qualifying that was good if I was it was taller than the neglect had any chance of taking police still split the Ferraris and and he just did what he could in the Rice luck played its part butts just as for automated lock difficult for themselves with the madness. Mercedes did pretty much everything they could've done. I mean I think most importantly Lewis. Hamilton did pretty much everything you could have done. I mean if you look at that first stint where he was keeping that car basically they're they're about with. La At so of gap that was keeping pretty consistent and was closing down by the end because of the the tar difference obviously he was obliterating interesting that I think he was something like seven or eight tenths quicker. All the time on task is supposed to be the king historians. Go ahead and bolts us. We'll say himself down a bit early on by spending three laps assigns to the safety coverage costume Johnson five point three seconds behind allison straight away so I think I think it's it's been a pretty young pretty full. Matt's a pre pattern leak race for Mercedes when it comes to the second part of the season is that they only have one driver until other game right now and they have another driver who's just hanging on to see out the season and I don't I don't WanNa be but too harsh towards victory is a better choice than people have given credit credit forcing. She joined the CDs just because you know so. Lewis does tend to make people look at the average but that early spark as hot in the season listen. I just know it to be seen. It's an particularly in race trim. He just eat doesn't have it and if you look at so of the final stint career sadness all of his car was not so good in the first thing they got much better in the second stint but you could see just how how much easier Hamilton's having it how he could keep the gap exactly where he wanted how he could fire in a fastest lap for laughs basically in the very ends how he absolutely didn't really seemingly have to break sweating that final sense is is another imperious rice by him. Obviously circumstances had to him but he did everything he cuts onto himself opposition to benefit from it. It's cutting into your exercise time it stabbing you in the back nine and it's attacking your peace of mind..

"Up from a little bit of uneasiness to something a little bit more potentially destructive. How do you make the whole the whole the whole atmosphere. It's it's important to say first of all that it was a few hours after the rice so emotions were still been running high and ultimately a few days on both of them might look at it and be like actually you know what this isn't worth so of throwing her entire team dynamic out of the window for that said by Gosh. They looked uncomfortable there. They were separated by Matteo. Yeah but I'll tell you during what was so of a session in a hospital unit that was being so of torn apart aside of them collected to leave paddock and they were all stood so of up against the wall and both federal in the class and I'd say van particular looked like profoundly uncomfortable teenagers being told off the cloud of course had nothing to be told off over but that little I think pretty clearly was Matiba defended him publicly. Only the easily backed and publicly said neither of his drivers broke a pre-race agreements. I think that's what they did. Emphatically well Vattel did emphatically sekely ignored repeated orders that that much been on secondary 'cause that's doesn't matter record on me on the radio and T. at at one point said I yeah I think that's fair enough which opens opens a whole can of worms but I understand I understand the desire to protect both your drivers from the media media and tried to sort it out in Toronto. He'll he'll how improving under control affair that might be a bit of a Horse's already bolted situation and you know problem is for me. The the thing with the way Leclair will see it after defeating Singapore that it was very obvious that he didn't take very well because of the circumstances because of how apply died and after nine consecutive races of getting the upper hand over battle in qualifying Leclair will probably expect expects a touch more respect from his team mate when it comes to the sole thing and for me most importantly is that imagine for a second that vessels engine didn't fail and imagine urgen that Ferrari's plans to get him swapped back during the bed stops backfired and imagine that Sebastian that will figure out a way to keep the lead of the race until the checkered accurate flak overly Cla what then what you've won a race congratulations that might be the loss ratio ever went from Ferrari. That's that's what's. You've been a bridge for sure. Your teammates will be forever limit whether you the team is not going to trust you much of anything anymore. You're you're. You're going to put your long-term F. One employment endanger by doing something like that yeah I think I think you're right on that one. It's a huge risk even if it came up but it was interesting. Let's let's Ferrari clearly mater appropriate sir to take it out of battles. Now say Mattie had been also claimed that the strategy's just works out the way they want they they said the littler as left rare was was going to which is true was losing a little. It's onto Hamilton not monsters. He's a lap in the last three laps before he puts his compared to what it lost over the previous three his pace over the previous alias three laps saw it. I think it was it was critically set they left battle out because I didn't want to be vulnerable to the to the visa safety and the most often the militia that worried about that you didn't need needs to bring the Kirk and that's early now. There is no way the it just so happened that the strategies of the two drivers. Let's let's but being given the fallout undercut. He needed to get ahead. That was clearly an quite rightly. The Ferrari pit will we'll take control of this and sorta out even though it it also claims came up with a bit of Willie explanation for that. They sure it wasn't just really coincidental. The amount of time they left at one track was exactly the amount of Tom. Tom Leclair needed to go quickly on fresh toys and then emerge ahead just as vital came out the pit lane so matter but also would have us believe modern uh-huh isn't that that's fantastic how that sorta the itself l. That's wonderful isn't it go. Ferrari got really lucky. Yeah just really lucky around the pit. Stop phase just just just one of those things was obviously the fact that the undercut was much much weaker at a circuit lost in it took basically four times as long for for Leclerc to make up almost leist to to make our team strategy where you bring one car and then you just leave. The car for four laps happens all the the time now. He's silly are being really cynical and actually always stress Ferrari. Were correct to do that because it was only going to give up the lead. If you drag them kicking screaming he sings it. I've always not close enough on quicker than him. Oh getting getting within this and although he was only going to AH GONNA lose that lead if they actually made him and the strategy they forced him to ensure that battle who I'm sure knew what was going on just cutting it short himself and save right on boxing now how long will no there was no way he was nuke it on well and if I had been in charge of fraud repair or inveterate the die out of there were no tires seconds because a it sounds stupid and look agree with what you said about. I do kind of admire that ruthlessness about Bertel for doing this because there is something quite appealing about that it shows these shows he's not giving exactly and it's almost like how the fallen giant hasn't quite fallen this fighting the guy left this is federal is peak rentals. The emotional determined to win because it's not even a title on the line he just wants to win another Grand Prix but I also suspect it's motivated partly by wanting to genucel missile reassert dominance within the team and pardon me does also wonder if they're still a little bit a lingering after-effects veteran slightly annoyed that Leclerc in honor of the situation at Monza in qualifying yet well we should say yeah because the teen said we're not happy clerk after that and in fact there was coming on the Radio Wisconsin. We've forgiven you for what happened yesterday. So let's not pretend Leclerc as these these free races in a row that there have been Philippine control and this is a young driver Oliver China Make Ferrari his team and then old stager trying to hang on and say are. I think you're a bit better than me but I'm just going to try and stay in the book yeah absolutely lately so I do. I like that I I don't necessarily agree you. It doesn't have to go along with it but I will very much enjoy the theatrics actress guy with it however as Ferrari in that situation you have one horseback and Lukla short-term medium-term long-term Leclair's your I bet not versatile agree so what you can't do in that situation is be bullied by an emotional and arrogant soaking overreacting however you want to whatever characterization you wanna make vegtable calculating the ruthless I would say absolutely I mean long champions exactly so whatever you you wanna say veterans was. I don't think Ferrari you can part with that so going back to what I said about him right there in the pit lane any ties that point in the race what you've try to do it. The Star is maneuver situation as agreed before the Grand Prix to your calls run first and second and what Ferrari could have done is when Vattel you did what he did is. I could have collapsed under the pressure. They could have basically gone. We'll deal with this later. Leclerc twenty one. He's going to have a lot more chances. We can explain ourselves goes to him and we're just GonNa let get away with it. Because you still got the result you wanted first and second. Even if it's not gone the way the way you exactly planned before the race however I don't think you can do that because of the aforementioned reasons declares the number one in battles the one being petulant in this situation so I think in that in that scenario I if if you do everything in your power to get them to swap on vessel refuses then you need to take matters into your own hand and all I really really admire Ferrari four four manipulating those pitstops so look logo in front I don't I don't like the fact that they won't admit to that but I do. Maybe understand on wall. They won't publicly say we did that. Stitch you up. I think he does but as long as they've got a bit deniability if they don't say assay out loud basically I would have done is on. I Wa- I would have liked it to the point where I would sacrifice. The one to the whole thing was about to prove a point a veteran because you what you can't do in that situation. You can't have a driver manipulating the goings containment being untrustworthy and acting as if there is no consequence because there was a time and it was at red bull when he would ignore such team orders with that was good enough to get away with this and he was the big fish so ultimately what can you do is a bit like Max tap in a ripple. Now Max can probably get away with saying what he wants and acting in how he wants because what we're gonNA. Do they really gonNA. Turn around and just say Oh we don't like you. We're not gonNA BACK ALEX album. That's not going to happen but throwing. Ferrari vet doesn't have that luxury now. If he steps out of line then it's not even the Ferrari will turn to declare Leclair's already built enough momentum over the the last of eight races also now to to prove that he's working on his own so I'm just pleased at Ferrari foot down. I'm glad it didn't come to the point where they affectively potentially compromise their own race to do. I'm sure there are people who think for our repressed the self destruct button on the pit wall and broke verticals. MG UK deliberately because that was that it was deserved com or and and that was the the punishment for his actions early on but if it comes to doing some into to put their foot down hard there have been completely on board with that one interesting thing looking ahead to the next reasons. Zucca is when multi twenty won't happen in Malaysia second race of the season. We went to China next a couple of weeks later. An initially Ashley in Malaysia velden realized quite how sort of how badly taken his ignoring team orders was when he when he didn't when he when he passed web of Alzheimer's China clearly thought about it needed eight. It is media session on the first anybody said well what about an of quicker pasta live with and he contacted it has it was Kinda. No shame yeah I did so on the on the big okay so interesting to see how he how we react to that of course as you alluded to go at this great thing where Ferrari while rough start to the race. Oh Yeah we've got the right way round. We've got a pace. We've got Mercedes covered as long as we get a safety car or virtual safety safety car will be fine in the K. goes on vessels car and yet they called their own virtual safety which which gives Mercedes and Lewis Hamilton the the village which is a a tremendous tremendous irony but of course loss conspiracy theories val about people suggesting about why battle stopped but we can be sure it was a legitimate K. failure and he was messing about with wary parks or anything he did what you told. Yeah first of all material omitted it's because everybody went in the media center watching it. I think everybody got the same question immediately the pit lanes right there. Why did he not get to the bit lane. Why did you tell him to stop and I think that the from I was on bowling happened. The engine was he could have gone to the pet yet but at the end of the die has made it pretty clear and apparently was basically we've had some colleagues. Ark some other team bosses too in regard. It's a safety thing you can't gamble in a safety thing. This is a sporting event. He counts gamble on a safety thing to ensure victory. Then this is something that you always have to respect one hundred percents and I have to my hat to to Benneteau into Ferrari fall so you know so of compromising race to to make sure everybody gets away Scot Free Rides. They had to pull him over right there. Partly according to race director Michael Lassie's comments laments vessel did a very good job pulling over. He's done as good a job. SC could've in that section of track to the point where he he could have. Maybe avoided virtual safety car. That basically costs Ferrari the victory. If only the car wasn't in an unsafe state which it was a must've. I think if I was in the Ferrari pit we'll out of call to the pet like even if you stop it in the Pantry or something I just wonder whether it was just stunned the procedure to to stop it happens. They don't want live car. I'll wonder if they could have overridden that. I wanted to say this is the same for our team that they have the unsafe release in north Germany with the fine for now. It's pretty dangerous in line so in a way with with the the the percentage of these calls to be unsafe if the if the the hybrids vice late say about yeah just just pulled I should say I don't think value departs anywhere else ready. He kept out of the way and it was just it was just one of these things it's funny because I switched to the clubs on board and so when the safety car was cool he said Yeah. We've lost this way so west. Affect or Hamels is going to go ahead. He knew straight away. What's happened now? I think we we only sub Obama fees low. Really I in that race for Ferrari. Could it not have happened really. It was always going to happen. It's written in this. I guess innocent well. There was also always the risk because how's Mercedes that donkey to and the mediums for themselves so that there were two approaches are members speak to Scott before bally's there's two approaches one if the undiscussed powerful enough records balls which was in the title surprise than they could've surprised fraud about trying to Nickelodeon pit stop and maybe hope they didn't notice and cover it with whoever it was leading but that wasn't.

"Lewis Hamilton Mercedes one the Russian Grand Prix Butler Real L. Story was controversy at Ferrari and arrangement of the first call that perhaps was not on it as quickly as some of those on the bill included men's that we had a little bit of a running debates going on in the race and then eventually for shooting yourself in the foot with an NGO UK failure that led to virtual safety car and handed a one to Mercedes so for for our after recent strong run. This was a bit of a nightmare to say the least so there's plenty. I talk about on this one on your heist at Jordan joining mate so you have a look back at the race. I is also spoke podcast deputies on Valentine's Hershey and I should say you always Russian you. Your expression suggests that didn't quite get your surname. Roy but I should add even though I've known you for quite a few years. Today is the first time about she learned roughly how to pronounce his surname surprise approach. You can correct us all. I skimmed no fairly Orinda but it was good enough for first attempt failing. Howard J Bokassa begins with a k. inning the is backwards K. in Russia knows among each in Russian is so regular Russian name really just English alphabet mix of it with that we it just makes it very very difficult. I just know you as valid iphone your val the Soviets and we also half doing his best doing his best impression of somebody who's asleep but leaping into Action Shen with Mike Fernandez is Scott Mitchell. How are you enjoying Russia and in particular how he joins our hotel with its puzzle full CESCO who you haven't had any run INS with all you've been running start with employees while he's been doing quite a bellowing awful the the the hotel owner pefect pleasant to be honest and I'm actually having quite nice timing. I mean sorcery. I I'm new to the to the Russian Grand Prix senior. Law was hey last year. I'm here this year but wasn't part of the initial contingent that came here when the race joined the calendar twenty fourteen and there does appear to be a co law so hang over for the people that were here first and foremost they seem to have a real struggle adapt eighteen to to what salt she offers from a Herman even important to view restaurants hotels wet wherever they seem to be a real struggle in the first year to get food so now people who just generally hate the race in the media seem to think so very negative one to go to actually quite like it. It's not the most exciting Grand Prix but in terms of the natural place associate itself is is quite pretty geographically. It's quite it's quite pleasant and traffic is decent multitude of restaurant options and I quite like the food here so I actually quite like coming here yeah. I I do enjoy it and I think the the first year twenty four hours here then it was a real struggle to to get food and he's a little bit troublesome sanction's going around but I remember going talion restaurant and waited for about three hours and needs to be told basically nothing on the menu is available because it's Rela which oversees very traumatic memory for other habits. No it has has grown on me. Slightly strange place where we are salt chase not really soldiers. isn't butts yeah. It's perfectly heavily pleasant place to be but it did produce a race. Little talking points it may be in itself wasn't the most dramatic spectacles motorized a yeah. We'll a story I mean. We've got a guy strikes. This Ferrari battle shoulder Klecko Sebastian Belford Place Lewis Hamilton second on the grid the Ferrari very clearly how to an advantage vow. Can you just talk through what we know what the arrangement was at the starts. How executed can lay the foundation nations football's to follow so yeah so rory have been unusually forthcoming in the sense that they've pretty much openly said that they orchestrated rated the start of the race. They had a plan in mind. They said that plan was executed. Perfectly shall was supposed to lead off the line and give a toe to veteran not Hamilton he stay to the left gaming to-to vital vets took him on the run to turn to shalt didn't fight and I was out there was a change for the lead and the next step of that plane was supposed to be that Sebastian gives the place back and obviously as we all saw that didn't quite materialize it in materialized for elapse. Sebastian said that you shall was not quick not close enough and then he only got further and further and further away and eventually free Hattie so of potentially take matters into their own hands. Even though that's they're they're not really saying that's what they've done but I think general consensus is. That's what they've done intended strategy yeah. I think that one was was pretty clear. I mean the whole the whole thing of the arrangement. The Star I kind of understand starts very very long runs to turn to which is actually the first corner we see last year the Mercedes Jehovah's kind of had a plan to block the track to avoid the Ferraris amongst them so it's not unprecedented but it was it was a fairly convoluted plan because it was all about uh obviously as you said. Lick fats left the door open by them not causing each other problems and unforgiving battle. It's so he did what he was meant to do. And then one st had a bit of a look at the start parameters they referred to basically they both have similar starts. Presumably there was a contingency that battled bins holt the if he made a much better style allows. That's just this complicated arrangement and it's I mean personally I can understand. Why are we tried to do something? The I even when it happened before it starts at sour as always complaining about it in the media center. I didn't really like what they were doing really dug it them being very open open about what they were doing. I think there was any way not to be a Ferrari of the past would have chauncey make something up but this this. Ferrari was very very open about what they were trying to d. And it might not sit well with most people it might not sit well with racing purists but at the end of the day I fawn teams are supposed to be smart enough to where they can deliver the optimal optimal results and they're supposed to do everything in their power to deliver the optimal results and if they look a little bit by doing it well Soviets now. I know you think certainly that they left themselves is open to exactly what happens one of their drivers seemingly disobeying the order and throwing a wrench in the plans and everything going very very sour but I think the the planet self without the of human fallibility aspect of it. I mean at the end of the slapped were Monte. They stopped one three of the slapped. They were one see they were checking out with the rice as if everybody played the role as it was expected then it would have been a Ferrari once a while I mean then's are probably would have gone anyway but from the strategy strategy point of view. They gained a position. They didn't expose themselves to danger they. They looked good after that first lap. Let's go what what do you make this point because uh it's fairly clear that I get the impression I don't know this. I'm not entirely convinced that Lewis entirely on board with us because obviously the driver starting behind this was always who is GonNa be a thing that probably disadvantaged multi. Maybe a helped him. Stay ahead of get ahead of Ameri dispatched him pretty quickly anyway so they hit also how the software's to the mediums. Hamilton started on so as well as the straight line speed advantage. The extra bites off the line and the fact that that'll kind of plays. He did suggest suggested to me. Maybe that this was imposed on him. Rather than money was totally on board with from the very start well. I do wonder what he actually thought. The agreement was because he said after the race so he thinks he did stick to what was agreed. We're back to Preston Center. Imminent Ninety nine am yeah exactly. I do wonder whether or not an let's let's take seven is word from it which is difficult to do when he seems to have just ignored him older. Perhaps he thinks that the team agreement was that hey if he gets into the lead then he will. He needs to move aside. Leclair should Leclair get to within that range so if I was not in control trolled the race and he needs to move back aside for the Clare Festival as we as we saw and I certainly lapsed. He was saying well if you want me to lecture plus shoney's to get up to the back comey and that wasn't something that was capable of federal did seen how actually quite decent speed in that first in and then there would have been the combination of however comfortable vessel unclear and the collusion pace because he was behind damaging his ties etcetera etcetera so slightly complicated. I think I really think veterans got the stand on to be honest because even even if it is slightly forced upon him ultimately do a better job over the first fifteen races of the season in a certain dominance is number one and and then you probably don't have the twenty twenty one year old second year f one driver in that position where they're being treated as equals. It's got to that point with rory way. on now filled the big the big downside of of the team order which ought to agree view. I see the argument with another there was some competitors padded to the botched attempt to manipulate net positions at the start of the season but I do think it was slightly different two thousand eighteen. It's quite direct compare attempts solve it before the problem arose yeah exactly so it's sort of backfired obey exactly so the big thing for me is that simply by having in place opened the door for Vito title who let's not forget has a bit of previous when it comes to defying a team order famously reprimand when he was at rebel with amount. Weber in Malaysia and he openly defied an order to to to to basically to to do we went on a date which was which was to take a win the rice so he was he was in the wrong there so maybe ferraris naive for trusting him and what the option is the big takeaway is that element of trust between the team and the driver and the two drivers must now be absolutely shattered because it will though when I also eclair this offer the race he said the still tross fertile and that they need to trust each other how he can and I can't see how on his reaction over the radio the constant the exclamation from Leclair that he had done everything he'd been told and he expected it to be reversed and it wasn't I don't see how that trust can exist and if you're working as a tame and there's no trust there are I don't think the situation salvageable it was. There's a whole multitude of things in his first into the rice because once fellows ahead I I think Ferrari Detroit or swap it round onto earlier I don't. I don't see why why did you the race. One source out lights are on unless you'll second driver. Significant faults in the leader and only evidence was achy that it wasn't fostering facts if you look at laps four to twenty one on average vital was point five seconds a lot quicker. I don't think Ferrari necessarily anticipated that now now secondly just because it was the wrong time to do it doesn't mean battle was correct to to find the team so I know we'll keep pushing on now. I don't even festivals primary reason for doing it. I think he did it because he wanted to keep that car had for as long as he can and the hype that you could keep it that he could be a bit far away. The Mercedes could get got in the way of something because he wanted to win the race after on and especially if he wasn't completely on board we speculate he might not have been with the whole plan. You can't necessarily really be too surprised at that and then it's just complicates of course was told on several consecutive outright is going to let you buy and then it didn't happen eventually. Lawmakers Ormoc as a sporting director had to get on the radio and say right. We're GONNA WE'RE GONNA do this later and there's a there's a bit on the radio where well club basically sites in in response so that message and I do like she said I completely understand. The only thing is all respected I gave into slipstream and then he said that the end managed situation so that now that was a very very clear loaded statement from him so that sort of mine interpretation of that of that section. I like Reynolds ruthlessness. Let's see more tried to do this guy clearly trying to fight for scraper vow you with when when the the Frederick spoke at the end of the rice so you have both of them in in the same place and wondering about whether this kind of makes relationship Tulsi certainly more reading this might be one of the ones we look back and say oh that's when ramps up from a little bit of uneasiness to something a little bit more potentially destructive. How do you make the whole the whole the whole atmosphere..
