"501st lap lead. That's a good statistic that David cross will be right off something. That's a great there was actually a great moment. I can't remember the qualifying of what we're crafty read something off his notes and just in the driest possible way with I think Martin Reynolds had had enough sleep he's just like good knowledge crafty, so I thought that was extremely enjoyable and like deliberately pulling back a curtain. But anyway, he led a couple lives of the race. Unfortunately a terrible pet shop dropped me on the point. Raced back into the point with some truly grace racing Jenson Button called his move on Kevin Magnussen. I think it was. One of the best he's ever seen. He's driving an Aston Martin. He's ever seen these maybe a mild hyperbole. So good on him there, but in terms of, well, despite the fact that I didn't watch the rice. So I do have a lot of fun facts. Oh yes. Acknowledge you may you didn't read them anymore. I have some great knowledge of completely off the top of my head and not searching for a old email to see if it is in my inbox. And if it has been binned, because either some great facts that I know that you can get $50 off in $3 if you order 30 minutes, click and collect. See, I haven't done these for a few weeks. You forget these things. You forget things. You're listening to Greeks on the roof. Let's check in quickly with fantasy Formula One formula mcginley. Goodness. I keep trying to say fantasy mcginley, which just is not should not be seen. That's so not right. SPS after ten 30 p.m. on a Wednesday, or something like that. Fantasy Formula One, or formula mcginley, depending on if you want to call it, you go to box you just come and join with three rounds to go. You never know. You might not finish last. It is our season long running fantasy competition. If you're doing badly, like us, I guess you must be looking forward to being able to restart the entire thing next year when you can do badly all over again, but for a little while, have the confidence of belief, much like Ferrari did this year that you might be able to do well in the grand scheme of things. Let's have a look at who's leading the not the championship, first to have a look at who won the United States, Grand Prix. I've done a really good job padding waiting with his website to load. They just logged in and I have to log in again. It's like, when they say two factor authentication, I didn't mean just log in twice. Yes. Here we go. Okay, it's lighted now. The funny games are over. Well, the funding game is just about to begin, depending on, hey, look at the winner was, is all the United States Grand Prix. Oh, no. Hang on a second. Oh no. Rob, it's not calculated. Oh, how's it cooking? Is it the top of my screen rob? Is dust and Martin or remco cognizant, et cetera which is your team? What? No, that's not right. It's not right, because even though you're in, I know, I've come back out and it's come back to zero because you have zero points. Because it's how you had zero points. Well, dusted monster and rhyme cook cognizant F one team scored a measly 105 points in ranked a pathetic 497th out of 534. Oh, don't worry. I'm back to form. I'm back. I scored a paltry 86 points in 526. That must be last. Tell me you entries we have. That's 134, very close. That's almost relegation. You would be really excited. If you're in double digit, it's pathetic, informal, mcginley. How can this be, though? My team has leclerc in it. It was on the podium. Okay, I guess Alonso technically didn't score any points. Bob has scratched out. Gazley was no good. But Verstappen won the rice. And then I guess I'll paying his own. It's a Lonzo. I hope it helped him get its appeal of the appeal back up and then maybe I'll spill some more points. That's outrageous. Here we go. I've got Russell, so that's a take. Alex Albon. Esteban ocon, Carlos Sainz, Sergio Pérez and Alpine as one team. No, you do right. I can see. I think that I did it right. 486 other people better than me. Yeah, I don't know. That's what I'm questioning the points. I clearly don't understand the points out, but it's like head of people with the lottery. I don't understand. I wish someone could explain that to me as well. Could be me, but it's just not going to be. Somehow I never is. It's incredible, isn't it? The winner of the United States Grand Prix is from the United States. His name is Dennis, and his team name is cheko, my parents. It's 292 points. Ahead of latent Hewitt march very good from Australia, the critically enough 270 points has a 12 point win. He was one point ahead of team two from the Netherlands, fourth is is Susan mcginley sport F one team, a Dream Team. God, I hope that will end one day. Racing is 5th 6 mcginley, Australian for F one is 6th, 7th, Martin Brundle yelling is that I can't read the rest because it does not allow longer team names to probably use that. Shade brigade is 8, 9, signs of the times very good. Tenth size of the time. That's weird. Two teams of the same name alongside one another in the rankings. No, Michael no is 11th mercy waters is 12th. Don't step me now is 13. Well, no one is stepping here. And then mcginley for race director is 14th God knows he leads more work as if he's not working hard enough as it is. Vulnerable mentioned in 18th Nikki. Good to see you. That is very good. That's very good. Enjoyed that one. The overall leader is still with three rounds to go with a margin of what is that? 116 points. And super cars land really these point system. Rob James 5 minute highlights. Second, check. Check yourself before you wreck yourself. Third azuki cookie fourth licker Lando Norris, no requirement to put liquid in the names anymore because the campaign has ended with the football season. The day of ranking, yes, I like it a lot. That's great. By the way, we've had to all mention this in a second. Some sleuthing on the rank in front, 6th is

"Was in car sea. He was very, very highly rated and very highly sought after and he became a McLaren junior. It was kind of Ron Dennis protege back around sort of like 2012, 2013 when he was in formula Renault Euro cup for fans of Formula One around then. If you remember the McLaren tune series, the CGI sort of little comedy series with Jenson Button and Lewis Hamilton in it. He made a starring role on a couple of occasions when he was around 16 or 17 years old. We spoke about that earlier this year actually. Just in case that you have a fancy is doing voice acting again. I think he quite enjoyed the experience. But he was a Euro cup champion in 2014. Moved up to Formula One O 3.5 with dams and it's a really big step between those two series. I know that two and 3.5, it doesn't seem like a big step, but it kind of was at the time. But he still finished third overall. Kind of took the backwards step to GP three. Had Charles Leclerc and Alex Albon in his team, but I don't think he particularly got on with that with that car. I think it was a bit difficult for him to reconcile with the backward step. But then moved up to F two in 2017. Did a sort of a weird campaign where he was with rap acts for the first half of the season and rap acts was they'd won the championship 2010 with pastel Maldonado but by then it was their last year in F two and they didn't have the resources or the money that some of the teams like prema or ART or dams had. So we did half the season with them and then half the season with racing engineering, who was also on the way out at that point. But you had a good season, you won the sprint race at Monaco, shared a good account of himself. But then he was very much in championship contention in 2018, which was the year that I was there. He was part of that pack with George Russell, Lando Norris, Alex Albon, de vries finished fourth in that year's championship, but he was every bit as quick as them. Really, really good in changeable conditions. The thing that I would kind of notice back then was that he was really, really engineers and knew exactly what he wanted behind the car. And like 90% of the time he was doing really, really good things. There's just that little 10% sort of slight bit of brain fade or slight bit of over aggression that would cause some trouble. So I think that ultimately contrived against him. So he did need a third year and I know it's not very fashionable amongst those that making the decisions in F one of which drivers they want to bring through. I think that's the same situation at Felipe drugovich is kind of facing now, having won it in his third year, but Reese did win 2019. It wasn't a particularly strong field. But I think at that point, as I said earlier, the chances of F one kind of dried up. So that brought him to formula E with Mercedes. He lost his McLaren backing at that point, Mercedes brought him in. Formula E program kind of a reserve program as well alongside fellow McLaren karst off a vandal at Mercedes. The team has just been really, really, as dominant as it's possible to be in formula E let's say. 2020 21, that was a really strange season where I think the top 16 to the top 18 by the time they got to Berlin could have theoretically won the championship. And it might sound a bit fluke, but de Reese was at the top at the front all season. He wasn't as consistent, let's say, as some of the others, but he got the wins where he needed to. And so he kind of got that over the line in a very, very strange and inconsistency. This year has not been quite as good. Stoffel vandoorne has been the stronger McLaren Mercedes driver. It will be McLaren next year. And one that I thought with this relentless consistency that de vries just couldn't seem to get his hands on, struggling with brake issues earlier this year. A few incidents of perhaps being a little bit over aggressive and trying to defend when he didn't need to defend. There have been a number of spats as such. But a few collisions between him and Lucas de grasse this season and him and Andre Lotterer this season and they're probably the three most aggressive drivers on the grid so when they get together it is fireworks. So it's not been a particularly great year in formula E and he did just miss out on the top ten of the official autosport formula E rankings as a coin flip between him and Nick Cassidy. But even though they're sort of been a few moments where he's had difficult years, it has been a sort of steady upward trend and upward progression. You know, it might not be the most fashionable junior career, but he's won when he's needed to, you know, from personal perspective, I think he kind of has proven himself over the years and I think Formula One's kind of slept on him a little bit. So to bring this full circle, tell us about what happened in the immediate aftermath of that point's finish in Monza. He was immediately tipped to join Williams, Latifi leaving, and partnering Alex Albon there. Also, tip to join Alpine because they're doing a pretty decent job of letting half decent drivers slip through their fingers. And now we know highly tipped this week we think the announcement will come that he'll be partnering Yuki tsunoda at AlphaTauri with a deal for gasly to go to Alpine.

"But it's hard to get away from the emotional thing with padal, not just because of that the sort of helmet in the hands sort of crying there by the side of the road. I think everyone you think you have to be pretty cold hearted not to have felt for him at that moment. But also because I'm pleased that he's in the list because I think he's kind of remembered for those couple of Ferrari outings in 2009, which is incredibly unfair really. I mean, I think he probably will hold the record for the worst all sport driver rating ever. I think one of those races you've got half a point, which I can't see Mac Alex kellan orcas being that harsh on any of the current grid to give such something so low. But that car was actually very, very difficult to drive, Kimi Räikkönen Felipe Massa struggled with it at various points during that year. It didn't exactly set the world when he got in it either. So I think that would probably is a bit hard done by there. So yet very, very happy to see him see him on the list I think that's fair enough. Well, look at you to give him the sympathy vote to the Italian that was denied. I know. Well, you know, the emotions are coming into it. Let's move on and let's get into place number 7 now Giancarlo fisichella started only 8 times and scored no points, but finished well in 8th as his highest position. And at the same race, Canadian Grand Prix in 1996 started 16th his best grid position. So less of an outing for the team, but making a higher ranking James, and 7th. He's a rookie in 96 when he gets his opportunity with minardi. He won the Italian F three championship in 94, which kind of marked him out as a future star. But he had been racing touring cars for Alfa Romeo in 95, and he was actually slated to carry on doing Turin cars for 96 and ended up swapping between the two. So a pretty good effort really given that he and also he was swapping backwards and forwards between two very different types of cars as a rookie and he wasn't really supposed to be doing the 9 60s and he was a late call up to replace takuya Nui who didn't set the world alike. It's fair to say with footwork in 95. A nuri's money fell through so physical was given the chance in its short notice he came in alongside army who had done better than badou in the end of 95. Confidently had army covered in their races together, he beat him 6 two in qualifying, which is a 75% record, which is one of the best totals in a head to head that any minardi driver had. Yeah, I mean, he didn't do all the races, obviously he stepped out for the two South American races so that tarsi markers could have a go. And he didn't see out the season either when he got back in the car because Giovanni lavage, who was you could arguably say Formula One's last gentleman driver saw out the saw out the season in his car. But he did a really good job given his lack of experience and I think it's that factor and jumping in between two different cars and going up against a teammate in an army who arguably should have won the 1993 Italian international formula 3000 championship, a really good driver as we've already covered. That means the killer runs his spot in the list. A good driver, a great racing driver over the course of his career, not the most illustrious Formula One career, I guess you could say, but Kevin, what do you think Giancarlo for sakala is 7th? What's your analysis of that? Yeah, and I fear that I promise that I will disagree with some of these choices further on in the list because we don't want to just go through all the ten and agree. But I think fizzy is fairly firmly in here because I think he's performances in a handful of races probably do just about getting ahead of the three. We've discussed already, but I think from that fewer starts, you can't really push any higher up the list. So I think he's probably pretty root in that. I mean, remember, I think Jenson Button described him as the best driver of rubbish car that he'd ever seen. I think physically is an absolute he's almost my archetype or go to driver when you're talking about someone who is brilliant when the equipment was poor and got progressively worse the more competitive his car was. So when he had a Grand Prix or championship winning car in the rent now he was absolutely and completely obliterated by Fernando Alonso admittedly is a very tough benchmark as many drivers have found since. But also you need to get radio calls to wake him up in the middle of the race and he suddenly goes three quarters of a second and a lot quicker. So I've always thought we'd be an absolutely brilliant British hill climb champion sort of championship driver, physically, which you won't hear that said in many podcasts. I'm sure. But now I think from bernardi point of view, I think he's spot on and did a very good job with very little experience. He's another one of those drivers that goes on to have a very long career as Kev's kind of said there in the nanini mode sort of thing as underlining what minardi was all about as well. It's a very niche list isn't it? Best drives of rubbish cars that were then rubbish in good cars because they'd have to have people like hunt Harold French and he'd been there as well. He could have friends and face off in that sort of list. As we always say, that's a podcast for another day. Now though, I know two drivers that Kev, you are going to disagree with on James here. So we'll look at them together. Now James you put Jos Verstappen in 6th place. He started 16 times from Minari, didn't score any points, did finish 9th in the 2003 Canadian Grand Prix also had his best grid start for the same race. He's in 6th, and you put yano trolley in 5th. Now he started fewer races for Minari, only 6 starts, also a non point scorer, finished in 9th, grid position, 17th, back at Australia in 1997. So I know Kev, you might disagree with these two. We'll look at them together, but James argue your case for why you put Jos in 6th and jano in 5th. Verstappen, we sort of covered that he went up against Justin Wilson, who was a very strong rookie, and did pretty well Verstappen had had a year out of Formula One after he was sort of unceremoniously dumped by arrows at the end of 2001. And he wanted to prove that he still had something to show Formula One and I think he did that because in machinery that was never going to be anything other than the tail ender. He didn't let his motivation get down out qualified Wilson and his record arguably could have been better had he not had a few

"Who could we possibly be talking about? Fernando Alonso, I thought, but he's determination he's more to prove a point rather than keeping it going when he's not got the firing. And he's also delivering is perhaps we'll come on to talk about later on when assessing candidates seek to replace better astin. But Vettel is that he is that sort of guy that goes, you know what? I've done it and now I go. I think that's interesting as well. In terms of whether we'll see him racing next Kev, do you think? Because we've seen people who haven't been world champions go on and have great successful careers in other series and pick and choosing a bit of GT racing or whatever is not as demanding on family life and we've also seen world champions stop and Nico Rosberg have a media career. And also a green advocate for renewables and things like that. We're also seeing Jenson buttons does a bit of racing, but a bit of media. What do you think you could see Sebastian Vettel doing next? Anything on the team doing the odds. I'd love to see him rock up at the good revival or Silverstone classic with his special fuel in a cobra or GCI or something like that would be quite cool. But I don't think he's going to have a proper program. I think he's going to he's more likely to be a spokesperson ambassador. I can see him much more playing almost like a political role, if you like. Because these things, I think he's retirement video. I think he's very sincere. I think he absolutely means what he says. And yes, I'm sure he will be spending more time with his family, but I also think that I don't think he's going to be Kimi Raikkonen and just vanish. I think that he'll be I think that we will be hearing more from said, but probably not as much behind the wheel. I could see because bear in mind this is a driver who between the British Grand Prix in 2017 and 70th anniversary Grand Prix went off to do some mountain biking in the Welsh hills. He's I think he'll turn up with his sustainable fuel at like, I don't know, a 24 hour two CV meeting. I genuinely could see him doing that. He just went under a pseudonym or something and it would just be himself. That's the type of guy that you remember, he does have a genuine, he likes the motor sport history, right? He was even when he first came into F one. He had more appreciation with the history of this book. He's the guy that brought out the SW 14 bit Silverstone, right? He's got his own collection, so he appreciates. In fact, I think you once correctly Christian Horner over the radio, didn't he, when he started listing four time world champions, you forgot about land Prost. So this is the moment of your greatest triumph and you still switched on. So I think we'll see him turning up at events. I don't think he'll vanish, but I like Alex's idea. Let's see, sib do a load of cameo appearances in really random championships. Absolutely. But I just won very small note on that FW 14 B run that maybe some people could spot this from the grandstands opposite the international pit straight itself down and so it's the Hamilton pitch rate is called now, isn't it? But anyway, Vettel got out of that car. I did all the did all the press code did the photographs, the interviews, the moment of Nigel Mansell, all of that. Then the driver's parade was happening for the British Grand Prix. Vettel was in his mocked up Williams suit with advertising the fuel that was in the car. Then he's got to get changed out of it into his Aston kit. So he just does it. He takes the kit off, he's sort of stood there in his underwear and then he takes T-shirt off and he just does it by the pit, well, then he gets in the car and gets driven around. But yeah, I just thought, yeah, just like, get on with it. And finally, before we look at a replacements, Alex, what do you think the role that he played at Aston Martin was under the stroll leadership? Very famous name in terms of automotive and racing. As well. And a keenness to revive that name. And also to have a four time world champion as expensive as he may be on their books. And also a fellow driver who needed mentoring and a team that obviously could benefit from all of his experience. What do you think that his legacy of his Aston time will be? Well, it's interesting he was hired because and I think this will offer us clues later on to when we come to consider who will replace him. He was hired because Lawrence Stroll wanted a big name world champion in the other car that his son is not driving when it comes to relaunching the Aston brand in Formula One. But it's interesting, I think the most the most important insight we've heard over the last few days when it comes to considering how Vettel has been has been working at that team was Lance stroll's comment when he was like, what were you missing out Sebastian Vettel and I'm paraphrasing here, but it was, well, I won't miss the long debriefs. I think that just shows you, you know, Vettel wasn't just here to bank a paycheck, which we understand is less than what he was on at Ferrari quite considerably. But he wasn't just there to make up the numbers and just do it as a hobby, like one of his former teammates, mister Raikkonen, right? He obviously put the effort in. With that with that, the challenges that Aston faced last year with the rear floor changes that impact the low rate cars because of what it had done in 2020 taking the 2019 Mercedes, that made it very difficult, even the works Mercedes got took half a season to get on top of that. It was very challenging. Then you've got these big regulation challenges. And you've got these big regulation changes in 2022. It was a difficult job, but it sounds like and what we understand. He approached it as professionally and as thoroughly as you'd expect from Vettel. All right, well, let's get into it then, and let's talk about who we could see in that seat. We call it the I was about to go to the second seat, but let's be careful with that. Kev will come to you first and start to have a look at some of the names and what it could do to silly season as well and affect the rest of the grid. Shake up. So what your initial stroll quote tells you something more about Lance than it does about Vettel or as much about him as he does better and also dictates that you need I would suggest someone quite experienced a slot into that seat because Lance stroll isn't going to lead that team to world championships is it. I guess there are two obvious names. I don't buy the Fernando Alonso thing. I don't see why he would leave like the Alpine thing makes much more sense to me. He's been they've made it very clear that he's part of the family days a legend for them. They've already talked about what he's going to do in hypercar and LMD once he's finished with F one. So I don't see the I don't see the Alonzo option, really. And why would he go there? It doesn't make sense to me. They might want him, but I don't see why he would go. I think the two most sensible options would be Daniel kear day because it's clearly not working at McLaren. He would be affected taking a step down the grid, but he

"That gives me confidence to say I think if max doesn't have that damage max wins the race comfortably, I think, I think the Red Bull probably would have had the race base, but now absolutely great. Great draft in Paris, really good overtaking us some great. We have some great wheel to wheel action. Obviously we had that brilliant moment where he was fighting leclerc. They both ran each other off the road. Lewis knit back through. Which was great. You could hear the cheers in the crowd. The only criticism and this isn't just applying to Verstappen. There was just a little bit too much of people running people off the track on the outside of corners today. The first one, I think, was Lewis on the clerk on the first lap, which Charles complained about. And I think he wasn't quite far enough alongside so it's probably okay in Lewis then gave him room later anyway. That was on the first first start. Then max did it happen to leclerc into Brooklyn's, which was a more marginal one, we think. Probably not a penalty, but that was quite tight to be running off there. And then when Perez went down the inside of Hamilton into the first proper breaking zone, the right hander. Yeah, Lewis is still pretty much a long side in Perry's driving to clean off the road. And I think at that point Paris should have given him should have given him room. I'm not saying necessarily I'd have given penalties to any of these because I think that lots of good racing, but I think there were a few I think if I were if I were one of the drivers stewards or even the team boss, I might just have a little bit of a quiet word to say. We were a bit marginal a couple of those moves today chaps, but we get away with it because lots of nice runoffs to play with. And that's the thing it was that move that Perez did on Hamilton at village that was bold, but the cars were quite alongside each other and Perez didn't leave any room. I don't know whether in that in that situation you would apply, you must leave a car's width plus a little rule or not. Well, I think there's nothing wrong with the move. The actual move down the inside absolutely fine, Lewis left him lifting back to your surprising amount in the room, I think, actually. It was more that whenever you're on the outside, you kind of, it's always a bit risky. And this is why it's very difficult to have a hard and fast rule about these things because it all depends on the angle of the corner and how alongside the other car is on the outside as to whether you need to give them room or not. And it's kind of almost it's kind of almost a gut feeling, which is why it's good that there is a driver steward on the student panel these days. And my gut feeling was that Perez was just a little bit a little bit naughty there, I think. I agree. And he's usually very clean racer. Yeah, that one was the only sort of borderline one for me. And apart from that, just like how incredible was that battle for the other restart between, yeah, leclerc Hamilton, Perez, obviously signs, I can't believe if you've watched that race back. He got clearer and more and just cleared off into the distance. Thank you very much. You guys can scuffle behind me. But yeah, incredible racing. And you've got to say, I think, throw in another context. That's what these cars were delivered and hoped for and they really did do that. Forget track limits and drivers overtakes and news of that. They were able to do this. In those cars and that's why everyone wanted and everyone was able to follow so much closer than they ever were. So big sick in the box that I think we knew that already, but we are seeing the benefits of these cars. Full credit, full credit to Formula One for helping that come to fruition. But yes, just mega racing, but the only one that I was a bit borderline with with Perez on how toward the end. But yeah. I mean, that's where you want the action though. If you start paying everywhere there, that's when it gets over regulated. And we have that before and it gets even more complicated. I do agree. And actually, that's a very good point Hayden makes about the cars. I think just now Martin, you said it's not Monaco, it sils, and where there's overtaking is possible. But actually, I've seen plenty of British Grand Prix at sealstone. They've been absolutely dull processions because no one gets close enough because of the normally in high speed and medium speed corners is where you get the worst of the dirty areas. Which is what these ground effects cars were brought in to address. And you have to say they've done that. We saw some brilliant overtaking. Okay, there was a lot of DRS as well, but it wasn't just that. There was some proper moves. I think the seals and layout changes have actually helped the racing as well. With that extra extra section that takes you onto the national the national straight as old time as we'll remember it. So yeah, I think it was some great racing. It was fantastic to watch. I still think the move of the day around the outside of Hamilton into cops on old tyres. And if Hamilton is more than an inch or two off the apex, leclerc is having a very Max Verstappen 2021 style crash. And I think and leclerc, you wouldn't do that to someone you didn't trust. It's a little bit like the famous Mark Weber into a rouge move on Fernando Alonso. He said there are only two drives he would do that against Alonso and Jenson Button at the time. I think he said because they're the ones that would just know the moment to back out of it. I thought that was absolutely fantastic race and the only regret really is that the safety car deprived of deprived us of Hamilton's charge. I think you'd have caught science probably I would take in science, but I think leclerc would have had too much in hand. So I think we'd have had a leclerc Hamilton science podium without the safety car. Ah, you've beat me to my next question, which was. Could move on. Could Lewis Hamilton have one today because I was gutted when that safety car came out because I was really looking forward to seeing with Lewis on a charge and that Mercedes package being an upgrade for Silverstone, but clearly not as good as the Ferrari. You know, could he have won today by making the over tracks overtakes on track, but so you're saying no, you're saying second. Could he have caught leclerc, front wing damage for leclerc losing down force, had older tyres? I don't know. You'd like to think it would have been closer. I think you'd like to think for the fairytale for the crowd. Would it have been win 104? Ah, I don't know. And going on now talking about going back to strategies and how the simulations were play out, which the teams do. You guarantee that the Mercedes strategist would have known, this is our best chance of winning, obviously. It's going to be going to be mighty close. What did sort of hurt them obviously? Was that Hamilton pit stop that took a couple of seconds longer than it probably was projected and should have been and with the added time loss of getting the hard tyres up to temperature at speed. Yeah, he just lost those critical seconds just in that pit stop changeover. I think had saved that and been in and around them, maybe.

"Series and I do see that happening. But in my opinion, that young man does need to stay in the Xfinity series or else in my opinion he's Daniel Suarez two. Remember when Suarez got the call to replace Carl Edwards in his abrupt retirement. And then all of a sudden, Daniel was making plans to go extremely racing. Boom, they put him in the cup car, and I think Daniel went into that cup car before he was ready. You know, two or three years, preferably like three years. I think is the perfect shelf life for a developing cup driver in the Xfinity series. I don't think ty is ready. So if you keep tie in the Xfinity series and Martin goes, who do you put in the 19? And then the following year when ty is ready, what do you do? Do you punt Chris Bell out of the 20 and make room for ty? Does Kyle stay, which I'm hearing, it's all but a done deal. They've got some matters to tend to, but you then get into the ripple effect of what happens to tie. Do you move him now? And maybe stunt his growth a little bit or do you let him continue to grow in the Xfinity series? And then what do you do with him after that? That's to me. So many drivers and teams to follow there are so many things to keep track of. So many phone calls that you'll be taking on SiriusXM NASCAR radio, Mike, Pete. Thanks for being here, really enjoyed your visit to NASCAR America motormouth. And when we come back, Dustin and I had a chance to talk to Travis Pastrana, nitro Rallycross champion, he'll tell us about season two of that series on peacock. Travis Pastrana who joins us now from the United Kingdom, Travis, thanks for being here and staying up late and joining us here on NASCAR America motormouth. So big news for nitro Rallycross, you're expanded to ten races globally this season, electric car, supercar as well. Tell us about what's new for the series in season two. Now it's absolutely wild. I mean, we have a former F one world champion Jenson Button jump in. He's sharing us with Chris meek going back and forth who's one of the top rally drivers in the world. You've got a lot of the returning turning names last year. Working with Subaru for basically like an east west shootout, if you will, if you're referring to like Supercross, but doing a European Championship for the non electric cars and a U.S. championship at all comes together in Las Vegas for a finale. It's going to be wild European the tracks. We keep them a little bit more traditional Rallycross, but then we come back to America and this year is going to be even bigger and crazier and more entertaining for sure for the fans than a little scarier for the drivers. Well, I'll tell you what, Travis, tell us a little bit about these cars because I feel awful driving in here with my car because it's like my car can't do that. I want one of these cars. I want to be able to do something like this. So tell us a little bit about these cars and the crazy things that you guys are doing in it. Well, they call this super cars, the rally cars are, you know, zero to 60 and 1.8 seconds. The biggest jump that we had last year, I think, was Glenn Helen, where the gap. So we jumped over under jump where the Joker lap, they call it where it's a little bit longer. They actually, the cars cross underneath of the other cars that are doing the main lap. So we had actually a three three way cars overtop each other, all jumped the two were jumping over. The one was going under. It was a 160 feet to where the guys were landing. It was absolutely awesome. Now this year, we're doing an electric class called group E similar to what the Group B used to be for rally, which was just absolutely insane. Way too much horsepower to know what to deal with. Before the regulations, the late 80s kicked in and said it was too fast. Well, that's what we went back to with the electric. We have a zero to 60 in 1.3 seconds with electric beasts. We can't even get the power down. We have wider tires, more traction in the Oklahoma is jumping in. Like everyone's trying to get us enough basically rubber to put down on this track so that we don't just fry these tires straight off the electric cars. It's going to be a handful, but I definitely looking forward to it. Yeah, we definitely are as well. Again, it's going to be on peacock this year, second straight year. Obviously, Travis, you're an international star, and you have a lot of fans, and some of them have called into the show today to talk to you. We're going to start with Raymond joining NASCAR America motormouth to talk to Travis Pastrana. Go ahead, Raymond. Hey guys, hey Travis. Travis, you've been competing in Rallycross for a long time now and many different series. And it's always fun to watch. What have you learned from competing in past series that you hope to apply to nature Rallycross and turn into a greater success? No, thanks. That's awesome question. I mean, it's really cool right now that we have Kyle Busch jumped into the Phoenix round last year. And then chase Elliott jumped in to the last round of Florida. Logano has been wanting to come out and it's really neat right now, especially with electric series because NASCAR doesn't have a lot of time off, but.

"The Crown. Alonso's quest for motor sports Triple Crown combined with some stellar performances for the then beleaguered McLaren team also kept him in the frame when his F one results alone looked unremarkable. He was third in our 2017 listings when he made his first appearance in the Indianapolis 500 and climbed to second in 2018 when he won the Le Mans 24 hours with Toyota. His quiet 2020 meant he dropped off the list, but his return with Alpine in 2021 and subsequent finish of 24th meant he stayed ahead by just 12 points of the second place driver on our list. The battle between Alonso and Hamilton is the one motor sports missed most over much of the past decade and a half. So it's perhaps appropriate that the Britain on 798 points is right behind the leader. Just as Alonso has won both the world title twice and topped our list twice. 7 time world champion Hamilton has taken our number one spot on 7 occasions. Whereas Alonso's first top 50 appearance was second in 2003. Hamilton arrived in 24th, two years later. After his formula €3 series title success. He was 11th after winning GP two as a rookie in 2006, before rising to second, ahead of Alonso in his first F one season. He's been in the top two every year since then, apart from his troubled year in 2011 when he came 8th and his first campaign at Mercedes in 2013 when he was 7th. If the 2021 top 50 result is repeated this year, Hamilton will overtake Alonso for top spot. There's then a very big gap to Vettel in third, partly because the German arrived in the higher echelons of the sport later, and partly because his career arguably started trailing off sooner. Vet first made it into the top 50 in 2006. In 41st. As F €3 series runner up behind Paul du resta and rose to 22nd the following year, when he was a formula Renault 3.5 race winner and made his F one debut. He was then a fixture in the top ten for 6 years, topping the list as world champion three times. There was a dip as he struggled alongside Daniel Ricciardo twice our top pick and 12th overall at Red Bull in 2014. Followed by a revival at Ferrari before a steep fall after 2018. Three more F one world champions. Jenson Button, Kimi Räikkönen and Nico Rosberg make the top ten. While 9th placed Mark Weber is the top F one driver not to be world champion, though of course he did become world endurance champion with Porsche. Aside from Verstappen, who on his current trajectory will make it into the top ten in the next two years. There are several youngsters lurking in the list who will surely rise in the seasons to come. Charles Leclerc is already 30th off the back of just 6 appearances. With a highest position of fourth in 2019. Incoming Mercedes driver George Russell has appeared 5 times and is currently 44th. While fellow McLaren also sport BRD, C award winner, Lando Norris, is 50th, 17 points behind, having also made the top 55 times. With Formula One at the Pinnacle of motor sport, it's not a surprise that normally, it provides the leading contenders for our top 50. However, other championships have been well represented over the years. The only non F one driver so far to top our list is world rally legend Loeb. He was number one in 2005. The year he won ten of the 16 events to take his third consecutive crown with citron and one race of champions. He's the top WRC driver in 6th, just two spots and 17 points ahead of his successor, Sebastian ogier, fittingly, given there in the debate about the greatest rally driver of all time, both have made 12 top 50 appearances and a well ahead of third place WRC exponents, double champion, Marcus gronholm, in 25th. But ahead of these rallying stars is 6 time IndyCar champion Scott Dixon. The kiwi has long been regarded as one of the best drivers outside of F one, and is fourth, although his peak of 5th in the 2013 top 50 isn't as high as Loeb, ogier or gronholm, his long career at the top of American single seaters means he has 15 appearances. His longevity has been remarkable and it's possible he could yet overtake Vettel for third in the list. Dixon's rapid but often unfortunate rival willpower is 16th just behind Valtteri Bottas. While four time champion and three time Indianapolis 500 winner Dario Franchitti completes the IndyCar top three in 27th. The other big arm of American motor sport also appears in the leading places. 7 time NASCAR Cup champion Jimmy Johnson, who rose as high as third in 2009, ten and 13 is 11th overall. Well clear of old arrival, Kevin Harvick in 33rd. Sports car racing traditionally has its peaks and troughs with the Porsche versus Audi versus Toyota. LMP1 era of the last decade, putting some drivers into the high placings. Andre Lotterer was sick in 2013 and 7th the following year. And LeMond winner Nick Tandy was 8th in 2015. But in weaker years, the leading endurance drivers of naturally fallen back. Sebastian Buemi is the top WEC driver on the two decade list and he's in 19th. He never made it into the top 50 during his Formula One career. But it's been a consistent presence since 2014. Normally his combined WEC and formula E performances leapfrog him high up the list. Though his dismal 2021 campaign actually dragged him back in last year's standings. Placing drivers from the various Tim top series, which are often esoteric, even if competitive can be tricky. But the main championships are represented. The DTM has at times been home to some of the best drivers outside Formula One. And double champion Gary paps long and successful Mercedes career gets him into 39th on the list. That's just one place and ten points ahead of outgoing Australian supercars hero, Jamie win cup. The 7 time supercar champion is of course one spot and three points ahead of triple DTM title winner Renee rest. When it comes to the less powerful touring cars, Ivan Muller is.

"Turner and this is the ultimate podcast. Well, after a year away, the Aston Martin all sort Bill D.C. young drive the year award returned for 2021 and the four finalists for this year are now in what I imagine is a fairly nervous time between doing the hard work of the driving on track at Silverstone, one of them will win 200,000 pounds in various other goodies and join a list that includes Jenson Button, David Coulthard, George Russell, and Lando Norris. And I'm very pleased to say that joining me for this podcast special is Zac O Sullivan, GB three champion this year. How are you doing that as the weight been too nervous or is it okay? I haven't been too bad I've been pretty busy for the preparations for next year. And yeah, thanks for having me. No, probably thanks, thanks for being here. So let's get let's get right to it then. I mean, first of all, the obvious question, what got you into motor sport? Well, what do you want to be a racing driver? I think I like some people I'm not like a family generational racing kind of thing. My dad had a kind of vague interest in cars, even from the mechanic in color side when he grew up in rural island just playing around building. I think it was an Austin miner at the time. And then yeah, when I was growing up, he used to always watch the F one every weekend. Again, with vague interest. And I thought I'd kind of follow suit and you had a couple of guys watching the F one. I knew I kind of fell in love with the sport then. That was during the Schumacher answer era and then into the Alonso Hamilton era of 2006 to 2007. So yeah, for me, that was kind of the main starting point on my love of cars. We went to a couple of Grand Prix as I was growing up. And yeah, I was kind of out of the sport from a young age. And then when I was age 7, I believe we went to the oldest sports show in Birmingham and I saw a go kart on sale and I thought this is awesome to me at the time. It was kind of a mini F one car. And I thought, can I have a go? So after a year of kind of pleading and begging of it, if my 8th birthday, I got given a little bambino go kart as a birthday present. And it kind of went from there. Initially, actually, we had a kind of derelict tennis court near home. And I kind of practiced drifting around there. So I could only go clockwise at the beginning and then I remember when I switched to anti clockwise, I really struggled because I couldn't really counteract that. So yeah, it would have been a good NASCAR driver. I think at the age of 8. Fantastic. And then obviously, after a casting, I guess it's one of those things where do you take it further? What was the sort of spur to get you into single seater racing? Because some people staying casting forever either as professionals.

"Have been the place where big big things happen, you know, you really see differences stand out performances in certain conditions in those cars for some reason. I guess it's because the relative lack of laps that the drivers have done and so if someone does just get in the rhythm quickly, then they can get on the pace ASAP. But I think what we're looking for over the three cars really is ultimately lap time that has got to be king. That's the main thing that we are looking for. But the fact that they're able to jump in between three different cards gives us an idea of their adaptability to different situations. Understanding the car as much as they can before they get in and whether they can I guess preempt how to get lap time out of a car before they driven it. It's all really interesting scenarios that we're able to put these guys through to assess them. To see a whole host of different attributes that they have. Yeah, so I kind of look at it as the F two cars are often the ones that decide the award obviously having four guys four cars on track at one time makes our jobs a lot easier as judges, but often the most memorable part is a standout performance in one of the other cars, Jenson Button back when he wanted 98 was amazing in the Nissan super tour. You wouldn't think it but yeah, he just got in nailed it. Alexander won't go on too much, but he was mega in the DTM car when he won Landa noise in the DTM car as well. The most memorable moments often come from the other cars. I think they really add something to the award and hopefully give the finalists some experience of something that might be useful for the nation in their career. Which brings us nicely on to the next part, Louis. What is the big plan you mentioned IndyCar? What are you doing next year? What's the, what's your career path over the next season or two? Yeah, so most likely is going to be in the pro, I'm finalizing a contract with a team which will be announced. I have no idea when but hopefully soon. Probably this side of Christmas I assume. So yeah, the plan make sure it's doing the pro 2000. Win that when the scholarship money then go to Indy Lights when that wins scholarship money and then go to indigo. That's the sandstone goal. Obviously this puts a bit more pressure on me for the next two years than I have had previously because like I said before about the Korea ambition not being to win F four F three or U formula. The next two years I have to win it to get the prize money because obviously to get that prize may be really helpful, especially with budgets being so high nowadays. So yeah, unfortunately we've got great backing the Copart. So that's realistically where we're going to be. It's going to be in the pro Indy Lights and indie cars. So hopefully in the next two, three years we should be at the end goal and then from there on, hopefully have a long and successful career in IndyCar, and then if one day our route opens up to F one, then we'll see what we can do. But yeah, that's pretty much at the moment. We've been doing tests in the indie, I did Chris Griffith from memorial test in Indianapolis two weeks ago now. I had a really strong pace. I think he won pretty much every session apart from the session where we didn't put new tires on. But yeah, that's pretty much it. And why have you gone for the American route? Is it because of your studies? Is it because the path there is clearer and a bit more sensible? Let's be honest, or is it always wanting to win the Indy 500? What's the motivation behind that switch? Well, I would say it's a mixture of the three, probably. Probably about a year and a half ago at a slider that the root for me would be IndyCar. I mean, back when I was doing genetics, we thought it'd be interesting to like three years. Well, I've done it. It was a bit fun, really. It was only until I actually showed some potential in my second third race that we decided it could be a proper good career in motor sport. And then yeah, going through the motor sport ladder, we kind of realized in F four and F three that there's a definite split in the road in Europe. You either go GTs or you go single seaters and single seater budget after window as soon as you go European, especially FIA after a the budgets just go through the roof. So that wasn't necessarily an option for us. On top of that, luckily, obviously, like a major before we have Copart, there are U.S. based company, which helps be willing to support us further, especially if we're based on the home country where the biggest market is. And yeah, the education side of things, I kind of only really came into study because I was racing out here as well. If I was racing in Europe, I wouldn't have come to America study that would be much point. So I just kind of linked the two hence why there was a three to two, three month kind of interlacing period this year, where I was racing in Europe, studying America is basically because the school calendar starts in September, but the racing calendar finishes in October. It's only that simple. But yeah, that's the main reason, really. Oh, I think there's a bit more opportunity in America than there is in Europe at the moment, especially not just single cities, but also GT's and LMP's. There's just more opportunities. Well, I wanted to bring Alexandria at this point. I mean, yes, it is going to arrive soon, isn't it? With lots of works teams, and I think we could be in for quite a good period in sports car racing. But Alexander obviously you've raced in inches as well in GTs. Would it be fair to say that maybe it's a bit more fun as well in the European scene, some old school tracks, it's kind of got quite a friendly vibe to it. Yeah, I think it's got a fantastic mixture of circuits that are have a more raw feeling I would say. Slightly more old school motor sport feeling to them. You know, paddocks are not particularly fancy. There are pretty much just poor to lose everywhere and I was going to say burger vans and things. But they do bring a decent set of catering to the races for the paddock, but there's no, there's no real facilities to be honest at most circuits. The racing is designed to be exciting rather than necessarily 100% fare the whole time. Which is great for the fans and actually I've realized it's fantastic to be involved in as well. I don't really care if I'm leading and there's a safety car because there's a bit of carbon on the track that conveniently.

"Joe is going to be a Formula One driver. China's first Formula One driver with no pain. They'll form next year. And not Oscar piastre, who will be the L pain reserve driver. Yeah, which is a great result. Well, not enough Aussie product. They don't have enough. Just a very tempered approach of Aussie pride, which I think just sums up Oscar piastre to a tape. Very, very calm, very decode and get a polar opposite. To Daniel Ricciardo, but he's well he's been passing along cryptic funny messages, no longer pit wall, so he's got a very dry sense of humans. There's Oscar, but yeah, it's funny because it's almost like he hasn't, 'cause it's a very Australian thing to really kind of struggle UI up to up to Formula One where, you know, he sort of not always in the best cars, he's sort of always a bit 50 50 about whether you'll get a say to all be the or you're the underdog in a championship battle but also is kind of just walking through them step by step with relative aids. Which is good. I think this is the only hurdle he's really had since I don't know maybe since British F four to be honest the handful of years ago. So for him to be effectively resigned to the fact that he's sitting out the 2022 season in terms of racing models, which we've always wanted to. I wonder how much a year of the herds or is actually good for you because he can just really focus on, you know, obviously there's the F one carrot dangling in the not too distant future. Which is, you know, no pressure on Fernando Alonso, but he's it's obviously the next logical stepfather he's not. Yeah, he has he's not going to be doing nothing. For no reason at least he's hope. He's hoping there's there'll be a payoff at the end of his I guess apprenticeship on the pit wall and a lot of maybe free practice and testing in 2022. So that's good news. So there's, yeah, it's always good that we know that there's another talent on the wife for Andrew westcott to get behind. And for 9, of course, they need the content. Yes, that's important. It is important. It's a circle of life, really. It is weird though, isn't it to have because when Daniel Ricciardo arrived in Formula One, it wasn't that much fan fit. It was fanfare here obviously. But he even when he got to F one, he was kind of just you know, he turned up to bloody the cows in football club for that world famous press conference and he was not the center of attention and this was maybe even second season in F one. So yeah, you only really like, you know, you probably ask, you know, there's some mainstream journalists and they're probably think his first race of the 2014 Australian Grand Prix. So it's quite remarkable, the amount of attention that also gets as a reserve driver, you know, let alone you know, when he gets to F one, which is good because it would be a case of he really has a beautiful profile before he gets there, which I don't think in racing times, correct me if I'm wrong. We haven't really seen a saying, I guess the green shoots of a dream are the driver overseas. From if three of two and then ultimately reserve driver, regardless, there's still enough two ran to be running one. Yes, you might not have wanted, yes. Nice thing. It could still be one you Joe. So people who are criticizing old mate jokes. Yes. Yeah, he still could be the champion. So, you know, in that case, then you'd have to you'd have to eat your words. You have to change your Twitter handle and the late to yourself. It's been very good for the last handful of seasons of graduates, which I think there was that follow going around of the greed for next season is going to be made up of, you know, over maybe half a dozen people have gone through F two or GP three back in the day. So in Paul, who's the oldest of probably George Russell, I also clue, actually probably would be the the older of the drivers. Probably wrong about that. Someone will correct me on the Discord and probably. But yeah, it's showing that that pathway is kind of it's really working. Again, in between sort of pastor Maldonado and obviously petrol came from JPMorgan. Melted out I would have come from JB. Okay, so I'm wrong. It's been good that there's a healthy level of really good next generation drivers on the grid at the moment. Yes, it is very exciting. And speaking of next level next generation drivers, it's harder than you can talk quick or slow. It is for me in the beginning. Let's check in with our fantasy Formula One teams for this weekend, the Qatar Grand Prix, third last round, of the season, and the winner. With a taco emoji in his name, check out yourself before you wreck yourself from Australia. From Australia, head of Ashley tane one. I've actually teamed Tuesday, okay? Head not heart. A good message for us all from New Zealand. Just a good honest message. Mcginley laughter. Just to be clear. Stone cold, cold, Steve harston. That's hard to see. Absolutely. From Poland. SFM GBP. We've made anything. No one still don't know what that noise. Number 6 put it in H, very important, very important reference, absolutely. Worthy of a mention, fosters mcginley with McKinley spelled incorrectly. I appreciate that. I like him. And I'm not going to read that one. No, it seems like it could get us into trouble. Something mentioned just a second VB long make F one academy 25th from the UK. Appreciate that was from the UK as well, but yes, there's been some talking about V long eggs in the Discord channel, which we will go to in just about every so often the old baby long neck kind of go. I think I saw some of someone saw the guy in the straight and he was confused about he's fine, Instagram. He's funny. Yes. Yes. We've got as well Doha a deer a female deer in 47. That's all right. I'll pay that. That'd mean someone's been changing that. That person's probably been changing their name every week. And we just haven't seen it because they've been very tough there. It's hard to scroll that far down. Sometimes the website doesn't really like it, you know? So you gotta be they like the Pirelli tires. You gotta be delicate with them. Otherwise, explodes all over you. Now, looking at the overall leaderboard though, if a formula mcginley, from New Zealand, I think we have a new leader in the overall championship standings. I bank mice elf. I see what you've done there. Absolutely right. Now I've also got from Canada, Christian Horner, who's doing very well, really? Very well for himself. Third is Napa wits a stand racing. From the Netherlands, probably a Dutch reference, the address was in the ones. Can't read never before. Still, I don't know what the epic material. Yes, why can't number four drop down the order? So a lot of you are so high up. From Mexico, it's 5th, 6th is check out yourself before you reckon yourself or wreck yourself, I guess, record I wouldn't really make any sense. And I'm gonna touch Louis's Rhea. That's the top 8 of the standings at the moment. So clearly, still a lot to play for because the order is changing quite a bit. Week to wake. In fact, if we look at the later this week, Trent from New Zealand scored 200 points just this weekend alone. That's a lot of points, isn't it? Didn't he? He could get that many points in this game. That is supercars ask. Honorable mention for 73rd place. Alexandra bay. Anti maxa. That's pretty hard to do with that one. That is very good. That is very good. I do actually number 213. Which is fine. You know, you don't have to be. You don't have to win this competition, good as I'm not. Latent Hewitt's Judd. That's pretty good. I thought that was very in a 104th place. There's a there's a hybrid of nations. Yes, I like it a lot. I absolutely like it a lot. Let's have a look over at the Discord channel, see what you've been talking about this weekend. It's been another busy weekend on the box for neutrals Discord channel discussing the race, obviously, what's been going on in Doha? It does something you wouldn't think about. If it's saying on a Formula One podcast, and yet here we are. Great airport. Very great example. It's been brought to our attention though as many people would have heard. The ease would have picked up that in practice, I think it was. Jenson Button described a box of neutrals. He said the full. I feel like we don't get them that often anymore box of neutrals.

"One of the things I wanted to bring up, Aaron, you mentioned ant earlier. You're talking about anstead. And ant teamed up with Jenson Button and a couple people and created the Radford type 62. It's based on the lotus. It looks fantastic. Carbon fiber body. We've seen the car out a few times now, different events, different auto shows. It was at sema, it was in the main hall. I haven't seen it in person. And it looks it really looks good. But they haven't shown the interior at all until now. And have you seen? Have you seen the photos? Yes. Yes, I am crazy about it. So there is still a little lotus love in there, but it is really, really, really beautifully designed and those I've always been a fan of rally cars and they definitely nod with the Bremen or Fremont watches, which by the way, you know, this is a high end bespoke vehicle because I believe those watches as a pair go for about 16,000 plus. Just for a couple, you know, watches. So yeah, you know these cars are nothing but the best in every trim piece in there is just going to be perfect. I gotta tell you, I am so impressed with the interior. It's the right combination of just sort of retro and mechanical, but with the latest technology, the dash is has the screen has a technology, but the shifter, the mechanism being sort of exposed to showing a mechanical aspect. I have a CAE shifter in my BMW that set similar idea. It's rarity. And I'm not ratchet, but it's very mechanical and man, I bet you that thing feels so good. It just, it's almost as good as a gated shifter just clicks right in. It has a great feel. You can see how nachi that thing. But look at the finish on the carbon fiber. Everything has like this beautiful satin finish and the gold finish on the seats. The satin finishing on this. That is so hard to get really, really right and some sort of production. And they've done a fantastic job. I love the fact they've eliminated the stereo because everybody uses their phones. They made a nice placement for the phone. I mean, there is nothing in here that I don't love. Except I can't afford it. I can't afford it and it's tough to get in and out of, whichever. I think they try to address the getting in and out of it as well by having the roof kind of open up a little bit more and it's GT 40 cutaway. Yeah. But they nailed the interior and I still don't really know what the price point is on these cars. I heard it's very expensive. I mean, for what it is. I mean, I don't know what advice or for us like, I don't know, 80 to a 100,000. Are these coming in at like two 50? I think so, obviously don't quote us on any of this, but yeah, I'm guessing, I'm guessing two three easy. Yeah. But I mean, just by the photos, I know the photos are the glam shots. I know they're getting the best of the best. But I think they're going to get this per car, man. These guys are real enthusiasts, they're real perfectionists. And every detail this finished, how many of these companies do you see that the stitching's a little funky or the carbon fiber just doesn't have that right finish. You know what I mean? Yeah. I mean, I think there's an unnamable SUV out there when the reviewer was reviewing it and the stitching is just horrendous. I mean, you know, and I get it, it's production, but that was a early piece. And this being an early piece, this thing is freaking perfect. I mean, I want to know who detailed. Yeah, right? Photoshop. Photoshop detail it. I think Photoshop details. It does, you know, or you're watching car wow, and it's like, really? Matt, you can dust that down a little bit. Yeah, right? Anyway, they nailed it. I think I think that's going to be the interior that they did is going to it's going to make the price of this car way more palatable. Because you see the car. And you're like, I know, but they didn't do a lot to the engine and it seems like a really big price jump. Even though it's got a carbon fiber body, they're like, I don't know, because you're going to feel like you're just driving a lotus again and then now that you've seen the interior like you're not really going to feel like you're driving a lot. So it's not in this photo set, which of link you sent me. But the attention to detail is insane. And just, if you can find the photos online, just look at the carbon fiber mount for those stopwatches. And these are like rally watches. It's a nod to this whole era of design. But have you seen the standoffs? I haven't seen the back of them now. Oh my God. I think ant posted something on this. It came up with my Instagram and I was like, I choked on my tee. Yeah, I drink tea, so I don't drink coffee. Chai tea. Brown water. But the standoff, the way these watches, usually they're connected to the dash on like a plaque or a plate, and it's machined aluminum. It has little spirals in it and stuff, little twists. This is this, I don't know how many inches at an angle standoff in carbon fiber. It's like these little legs, these little tentacles that come out and perfectly house the back half of these watches. So the watch is showcased all by itself, like from the right front view..

"So they've got the expertise. They've got the know how to make it count. And if Red Bull drops the ball a little bit then there'll be that profit. Obviously, on paper, yeah, it should suit Red Bull, but Mercedes has done it all before. So we'll have to wait and see. It's exciting though, isn't it? It's very exciting. I mean, we are literally getting down to the wire with this. And max is still so cool and calm and collected about it or even though, you know, everyone else is sort of saying, you know, it's really the momentum is really getting behind you and it's just so level headed about it, which does make it even more exciting. I am intrigued to see how the next few races unfold, as you said, Mercedes have done this, it's not the first time. But it's getting close. It's getting very, very close, and it's exciting for us. Let's move further down the field though. To Pierre gasly, who finished an excellent fourth, sort of a lonely race for him. I feel like we have this conversation about Pierre a lot. So we're not going to dwell on it too much, but once again, just solid and consistent and really there's nothing negative really to say about him, is he? He's just doing what he needs to do, but, you know, as we know the future wise, which I know is a controversial topic, some people are like, you know, keep them in Alfa tauri. That's why he's doing well. But a lot of people are saying his performance and his consistency warrants a better seat. What did you make of his weekend Jess will come to you fast? Yeah, I mean, it's kind of bad that we're just kind of getting used to Pierre gasly putting in these amazing performances, but not really having too much to show for it other than obviously a great point hall for alpha Tori, his teammate DNF aside. But on his side of the garage, it's looking it's looking great. I mean, the pace that he had today was incredible. You know, the Ferraris were saying they just couldn't get anywhere close to him. They even had Ferrari having team orders to see if science could eke out more pace out of him, but he just couldn't get anywhere near, I think, just under 7 seconds was as close as they could get in those final stages to him. So yeah, lonely, but very solid drive. And again, I guess it's the age old problem with Formula One, there are only sets, only so many seats. And so many, I guess premier tier seats available. He's tried it once in Red Bull. He didn't get on with it. So whether or not it would be a good place for him to go back to, probably not. You would argue. So for me, I think I heard Jenson Button saying this on the commentary as well. For me, the only thing that he can do is stay where he is and hope that with the new regulations, Alfa tauri gets even more competitive and he can kind of think about winning races with them, but he needs to get himself to a manufacturer, I think. But again, not too many positions available to him there, either. So is the age old problem that there's not enough seats in Formula One? There are enough teams in Formula One. They're under manufacturers in Formula One. So unless something is Formula One, a lot of crazy things happen. We've seen surprise and shock moves from people, I guess, you know, Daniel Ricciardo moving to Renault was a massive shock, no one really expected that. Could we see Pierre gasly Alpine? I'm not sure if that's a great move for him, but yeah, just it almost kind of there's nothing else for us to say, really. We know how great a driver he is. But he's not got much else to think about or go to. So just kind of one of those slightly sad, but also great that we're seeing him put in these performances and show what great driver he is, but yeah, there's not really many places for him to go to be really up there and in those challenging positions. And whilst we are on our tarry, let's quickly touch on Yuki because pretty rough day for him, of course, out in the first corner. And yesterday he had that little dressing down from Red Bull, shall we say? What were your thoughts on that JBL? You mentioned it briefly at the start of the podcast. What were your thoughts on yesterday and how Red Bull handled it? And who was in the wrong as such? I think generally yesterday, sonoda looked really, really good. He looked really good in practice and he looked like he was on top of everything this weekend. And it sort of, the form we've seen in the last few rounds, obviously is being sort of not quite driver coach by Alex album, but Alex Albon is providing support for him in that side of the garage. And he looks much better for it. It looks like he's sort of come out the other side of the difficulty she had earlier in the year and he just needs to sort of have an opportunity to build on that. And today could have been that, you know, he didn't have engine penalties and that kind of thing. And I think in qualifying yesterday in Q three, alpha towery has contended the cenote was aware of the situation. He had the Perez and for staff and behind him. And because he was got through to Q three because they felt that gasoline might need a toe. He was sort of done his bit and was just sort of trying to get off the track and I think Perez saw him ahead. Maybe sort of got a little bit distracted and had a little bit of a brain fade if you like and sort of followed him into that runoff area. And I don't think so notice to blame for that. I really don't. Whatever your sort of opinion on whether it should have been in Q three or not. I'll tell you how to express purpose for him being there. They got him through. He'd got through on merit. He was very, very quick. And he'd done his bit to help gasly out. And he couldn't really disappear off the track. So yeah, I think Red Bull has been very, very unfair on him. We know that Yuki is he's still in his first year he's made mistakes. He's learning, that's kind of what you do as a rookie. You should get a free pass and you first year to, you know, start the season off making a few mistakes. So you know where the limits are. But I think that sort of unfairly got him a reputation and it was very easy for rebel to kind of pin the tail on that particular donkey. And yeah, it was just unfortunate positioning at the time, I think. And then that first corner, it was just a mess. Because what it was him archon and Schumacher kind of three wide in that corner. Him and Schumacher kind of pins it on, or can't go out of it absolutely fine and I don't entirely know how. But Snyder and Schumacher were left by the wayside and that was it for them. And as I said, senator needs a weekend where he can take that form and build on it and get another really good result and he just didn't have that opportunity today because circumstances conspire against him. Jess, what did you make of the Red Bull cenote situation yesterday? We saw the Mercedes admin getting involved and, you know, sending him a motivational message on Twitter. But do you agree with JBL that he was not a fault there and, you know, Red Bull maybe shouldn't have been quite so firm in there was after. Yeah, absolutely..

Hello how are you. i'm fine. Thanks very much kevin. Good morning good to hear from you. Yes it some looking for this one. Something we've not done before actually what we'll do a few more m. a would related podcasts. Over the next couple months also joining me is a magazine. Deputy editor marcus simmons. Btc reported. but i think it's fair to say he's also something of a genius single see guru so welcome. Marcus how you very well. Thanks as you say Covering the that my little worn out after To back backed about weekends one of which was almost in norway croft but But yet Been been following. The to single seaters is as closely as can This season and i seem previous seasons so very very interested to see what happens absolutely and actually as a highlight of my season so we can start with. Start with you ian. It was fairly recently the we had our our big meeting where we go. All the judges together. Warrick is the is the chairman of the judges. But we've got a good panel of experienced judges as well so he could you just give us a bit of insight into how we choose the fondness and what you're looking for when when you put your four four favorites forward well let me come into the twos and really we have a long and then the shoulders. The long is ten. We look various single two categories which is the focus. Single seat racing. This this is all about and therefore we're not really looking at drivers. Doing well in touring cars. So marcus ole kiki racing all germs in each is essentially about single-season drivers these days that quite the choice that no long distance categories right formula reynaud from the vauxhall and so on and form a literally east debate we all choice and also because of the effects of both Brexit's ann's kobe. There were a few young drivers racing in europe. They have to be british With others aboard the just on that many racing it wasn't the case of hudson's choice robbing the pen on the belong list but it well as difficult using some years choosing that ten What we look utah constantly is somebody who based on what we've seen in the past from previous finalists has the potential to go beyond racing the level after the moments all she after the moments and move on to hi. Cathy will single. Cj knows she's the the exercise for us To find the next british formula one world champion. Absolutely and i say the award has been pretty successfully started in nineteen thousand nine. David was the first winner and since then some of the big names of c.

Champion anthony davidson's a form winners is quite a corden. An laucius sort of former list of winners price for this year process. You include two hundred thousand pounds which quite useful for the drivers stepping up to another another the next step. So let's start with stopping marcus with the with the first driver only bearman. Who obviously we've not been able to see very much in the uk Sixteen year old. But he's leading both the italian and german formula ford championships which are probably the two strongest series that that level would you say tightly. It has been that way really since since. Fyi formula four began that german and italian championships have a lot of the teams that we say at higher levels of of european single seat racing you'll be primers and your financial racing's etc. Funnily enough awful. Paradoxically might say that. The italian championship has the numbers thirty cars plus for each around. The german is we can numeric a probably about sixteen to eighteen is regarded as the bull competitive because they use the saying tattoo chassis. The same engine saint ties It's relatively simple thing for the for the competitors him one championship to go into another and that has happened over the over the past few since two thousand fifteen when the german championship came onto the scene. The italian was the first firefox championship that began in two thousand fourteen until now. Nobody has actually won both championships in the same year. Wake up alabama and leading leading both championships Second year at the chairman series. Last year he came in in twenty twenty and the intention originally was for him to car testing program along with them the final year of his karting career but he actually ended up racing in the german f four championship instead with the us racing the team of ralf schumacher gerhard google. The former img mercedes boss and then for this year switched to finance for racing The dutch team and His seventy eight points in front in the italian championship. Forty nine points in the german and both the Championships the runner up is the same guy as well. It said tim tremendous young. German driver and trumpets isn't doing the italian rounds. Sabine a little bit easier for bearman there but the seasons being tremendous for him the same really really write him. The team love working with him as well. They say he reminds them Personality wise he reminds him of kalomo. Who the team running the european three championship in two thousand sixteen. And we know what a lovely young chap. here's so Sussex recommendation and hey just seems to be taking the boxes and winning a lot of races. I it's mutating last friday. Actually being becoming bill de rising stuff and he reckons. The talk of italian formula fall is actually more competitive. There was a loss of jobs. You can perhaps might not rate as front runners inside the which is the number but he would say you might say he would say this wouldn't be because he's actually.

"The theme of what. This city is history luxury and sport and this year. We're sort of putting an emphasis on sport The sporting history of of automobiles newport is absolutely astonishing. A lot of people don't realize that the very first circuit race in america was held in cranston rhode island in eighteen ninety six no real Of course the first van yes. I was like oh dirt or was it a board track kind of thing. It was on dirt. It was on a horse race track. Oh yeah there was another Willie k vanderbilt had the first vanderbilt cup here in one thousand nine two and that was held at another horse track here in newport and of christina's friends love tearing up and down Bellevue avenue in their cars Here and also the first traffic arrest was made here important naito four-speed going twelve and a ten kind of thing. It was like low number driving a walking drunk driving walking. You know live on venice beach and they still. They still charge people with that about three or four times a year. Somebody takes a left and drives down. The footpath gets very lost and it becomes a problem driving a walking to walk in and and so with the emphasis on racing. We've got some spectacular programs. First and foremost we've got a great partnership with mclaren racing and so we've got a great mclaren bunch coming. Zac brown the ceo of mclaren racing. He's coming year hawk. Mika hakkinen is going to be here and yet. David donahue is doing a seminar with mika. Hakkinen johnny rutherford Got close in the convert opened with legends. We'll have an amazing Number of cars. We're gonna have unveiling of the most. Recent addition to the ranks elections the nineteen eighty eight mclaren. Mp four four. that alain prost drove through three victories.

It's amazing car and actually can go to the To the drain Museum youtube channel as well. And you see i. I saw the car at the festival. Speed and interviews that brown With the car and also talked to daniel ricardo and to What he's i just fall on my head. That's pretty funny Landowner remind linda north. Thank you all right. I just start right at the wall and hoped it worked. They have a got good personalities. Between zac brown daniel landau. I really liked the vibe of mclaren. That's going on. It seems like they're having fun. Yeah i like that. They are having a great time and as a consequence air. Well i think the to do go hand in hand you know i love your Your chat jenson button jensen rules. What a great guy he he. He's a fantastic tell rules and is that radford thing. I wish i got to see in person. Have you seen the radford and person yet. I've nothing in prison. It looks really good. It's really low. It's got the lowest roof of any any modern car. I've seen in a very long time. It's even lower than gt forty. Well i really. I'm really curious to see that. One of the things that i'm really happy about and i'm getting off topic. Everyone really happened. Because we've got so much stuff about is the return of coach building. Just like everybody thought that nineteen seventies performance was dead and now it's back in a huge way. Everyone almost ran much performance right now. Performance is scary. What the that you can walk into a dodge dealer and for eleven hundred bucks a month. No money down. Walk out of there with an eight hundred horsepower. L. cat is unbelievable. You know that gets me to another topic. Which again. I keep bringing it back to brand here because i have to do that. Because it's a and it's awesome but the having experienced that so many different cars me personally. The kind of cars that generally am gravitated towards are those small block cars where you have to really pay attention to your driving if it's a track cards momentum car it's all about torque and our to weight ratio not horsepower And even and this is something that that makes me enemies places. But that's okay jay Even the electric cars thing. I think it's fantastic. That they make these these these tests that accelerate so quickly but as acceleration the only parameter of performance that you really care about like oh i can't wait to get to another red light so i what you know. I know exactly what you mean. I have the four machi and i. It's not in the fastest one. It's the middle one and it's still super super quick. And when tesla model s came out in two thousand twelve and they ran a ten second quarter mile out of the box. I was genuinely very impressed right. But now you know okay so so now it runs a nine like oh my god that is so much more helpful thank you you know what i mean like i i just don't care anymore it's like now i i now it's okay. Evt's are dragsters. that's what they do and moving on. You know what i mean like. That's why i think the coach building thing as you just said is so much more interesting and it's weird how we got back to it by having the super cars become so mass production that people are now looking to take it so much further into Specialty cars like glickenhaus coach building like radford. It's it's really become very interesting even pininfarina and like is doing their own cars. What what's going on. It's awesome exactly and it's a funny thing to the you mentioned glickenhaus Also coming up. I keep making these incredibly shameless plug here. That's why you're hearing shame. Shame shameless away for for the drains network Video that will be putting up next In what's today. Today's friday's oh. Tonight is a great interview that i did with muldoon. One of my favorite people. Didn't she by the first glickenhaus. She just bought one right -actly as he ran it up. The hill at at goodwood did it. Did it work did it. Sound look awesome. After it was absolutely made and i had great up there and see one of those people who you think a hollywood casting director may up because no one could be that smart that charming that. Funny that beautiful. It's like everything and a total car nut and it's it's it's assange. I think her and the whole thing. I think is fantastic. She got an three. I believe or was no oh four. Oh three right s. e. g. o. three whereas Muldoon's and it was. It's like a crazy color. It's a green gold gold gold with gold with a snakeskin patterned interior. Go down one click there. Yeah that's it right there. It's it is. It is really a wild. Look at this color it is. You're right it is is very gold black wheels. A flag highlights is the interior shot down. There can keep scrolling that it has legitimately es nuts big one. It looks crazy. I mean if you're going to build if you're going to get one of these things like her really kudos. Yeah it's like. I mean if that interior was seriously and i and i come from this business if that was a handbag or a ralph lauren handbag. That's enough snakeskin.

"Lotus of vora which is a good lightweight platform with the rear mid engine. And they said what can we do with this platform and they completely redesigned it with carbon fiber body and it's gorgeous and they came out with the type sixty two dash two and that's all mosh to the type sixty two back in the day jenson. Button has been very instrumental in dialing in the performance in handling dynamics of the car. Aunt has been very involved with the build operations. Everything from carbon-fiber bodies to things like that. And and of course marc stobbs penned the car and it kind of decided what it was going to be. There's a few flaws that i found in the vora debt. I believe they've addressed. I is very difficult to get in and out so the door which does swing wide. The door does go up above you and cuts into the roof like the four piece. Do a little bit but get it right. But it does swing y. Let's the varas a little snug to begin with but good for these guys. It looks like it's going to be a fantastic car. I believe there are only gonna make sixty two of them. They're going to have a couple of different paint schemes a couple of different liveries classic liveries Some really cool features like we talked about carbon fiber body centre lock wheels. Eighteen thousand nine hundred lighter than the four with the carbon fiber body. I think this is going to wait around. Twenty two hundred pounds. That's nothing twenty two hundred pounds. There are still gonna use the three point. Five liter supercharged toyota v six. But i believe it's going to come in to specs. There's going to be a four hundred thirty horsepower spec with an available manual transmission then a five hundred horsepower back. I believe it's only going to have a dc transmission and the five hundred horsepower. Spec is basically just built motor. It's going to have upgraded pistons connecting rods crankshaft or camshafts. as you expect i beef up the motor. They're all the turn up the boost and and hit that milestone. But it's it's a good looking car. The only thing. I'm unsure about is the price and a doe quote me on this but somebody had posted sub five hundred thousand dollars. I i can't say for sure i want to say. It was probably mad. Farah from smoking tire. He was at the event i wasn't able to attend and i just saw post. He he did said sub five hundred thousand. I hope it's quite a bit sub. I mean listen. I want these guys that do well. But it's tough to say. Hey we're basing our car somewhat on the four platform that's a hundred grams or less. We're keeping the same engine Adiga carbon fiber bonnie and making it four hundred and eighty thousand dollars right. So i i mean. I don't know where this thing should come in. But and i know a carbon fiber body in a limited run of about sixty. Two is is tough. Maybe they make some extras in case. Something gets damaged and a car get repaired. Maybe they're gonna make seventy or eighty of these things. I have no idea. But i don't know a hundred and eighty i think sub two hundred thousand is what it needs to be. I can see two hundred grand for the car give or take whatever a small percentage i just don't see three four five hundred thousand dollars doubling the original rice the car but not much more than that. Yeah i i'm with you. I'm with you on that anyway. As we head up to monterey a couple of other rumors are in the works which we might be able to see our show over here on pluto. Tv going racing adams it. I'm edit gulberg. You're in an episode. We filmed with you at four years ago at goodwood and those episodes of all been edited and the first season. I think comes out this saturday on pluto. Tv and and there was a few more episodes that will be for next season. Which i believe will be in november but as we head up to monterey. We've already got some interviews lined up for that new season. I'm going to swing by a bugatti. See what they've got new talk to one of their bosses and i'm going to swing by lamborghini so lamborghini invited me and they said come on by. We love to meet with you and interview with our chief technology officer and then a few days later i say this announcement saying the new coon taj and i was like. Hey that'd be fucking great if we could see a new coup tasha i actually talked to adonis like ooh new coon tosh and he goes. I like that idea. I was like well. I don't know maybe we're going to see it and talk to these guys so That'll be exciting regardless. You don't have to wait for the tv show to get pictures of this thing because pictures are going to pop up everywhere and i'll be posting on social media as well but that's kind of bad ass and they're talking about hybrid with upwards of eight hundred horsepower. Super bad ass footnote. My neighbor's got an original concise with four thousand miles. Yeah i mean. I don't know if you've tried to drive it. But the pedals are off to the side and the brake pedal the gas pedal are so close together that you have to take your shoe off. But the clutch pedal was so heavy. You need aware like a boot on your left foot and just a sock on your right foot. It's kind of interesting and then you realize you can't really see out of it. And so i had an opportunity to drive on. You realize you can't see out of it but it doesn't matter because you're in a bright red kunshan. Everybody sees you. So you're like it's fine so just kind of something to think about when it comes to when it comes to that but anyway so monterey should be exciting. We're going to see that car now. The other car that. I just got.

I know you got plans to spice up the spruce up this place a little bit so we are getting. We're getting the cars outside packed up and soon as we're done with the podcast here on a wednesday morning we're going to be high tailing it up to monterey car week and we're going to bring you some content from there. I think the plan is definitely gonna hit up the the normal stuff. We'd like to go to the auctions and hit up the quail event pebble beach on sunday. We're going to be going to the racing track as well laguna seca. So if you guys are still hearing this and want to come by and say hello. We would love for you to do that. We the best place to do that usually at the tracks. I think the most exciting thing where they're pretty much all day saturday now. I'm not sure. How much vago. I can feed you guys. But i brought a couple of cases. And i put it in the back of the car so i'm going to smuggle it up there and it might just hang out dr cooler. We might be drinking it the whole time or back in the house as well but i do have a few. I do have a few can so come on by and and the breach the subject but is there any restrictions at the event. You know all that we've seen so far wise the normal like state and county guidelines right so there isn't any additional strictures now restrict. Now keep in mind. Almost everything car week is outside right. The race track quayle arguably the auctions with tent with big fans. They opened the sides. It's all pretty much outside. There was just a little a little a few things like when you go to the quayle event you have to park site and they bus you over to the event master required on the bus right so whatever. It's seven minutes you know. It's not now nothing nothing major. I haven't heard much about restrictions on attendance right because so many events tickets were sold out ahead of time. Unite talked to about this a while ago. In the instance of something like a wwe summer slam. That's coming up in a month. If if there was a restriction and they said everybody has to wear a mask the event probably goes on but if they said hey. We have to limit attendance. Wwe would say no. We'd rather postpone the event because they don't want to get a venue with sixty thousand people and sell thirty thousand seats right financially. It doesn't make sense for you know any we're using wwe's and example right also. They've been selling tickets ahead time ahead of time. So how does the city go to them and go. Yeah yeah you can only sell thirty five thousand seats. Everybody needs each group of people need to be distant part of they're gonna go. I don't know how to do that right right right so snakes. Yeah right so it wouldn't. It wouldn't make sense. So i think that was kind of the thought was. This show is going to go on as they say. Probably you know. This goes for everything at monterey as well as as summer slam because the tickets were sold. And you know maybe there's discussion as to what every other after you know that it doesn't already have tickets on sale. What's going to happen. Who knows but so far so good. I mean we're crossing our fingers like we said it's usually very nice and breezy out and and everything is outside. I'm not really anticipating issues and by all means people that are comfortable wearing a mask worthy mask right and if you're vaccinated or whatever you don't wanna wear the masks in the bass like that's it. Just do whatever you feel like. You wanna do unlike ninety nine percent of the population right. Now i'm actually looking forward to dawning other. Yeah okay. it's kind of like hide behind a wall a little bit. Yeah right walk around and just a tiny bit. Yeah i enjoy it. But i'm looking at it from a cleaning. Need with it right that's it. That's that's what you're going for all right so we're going to be heading up to monterey a couple of things i just wanna touch on real quick our friends over at at radford specifically for for me and i think for you aunt and stead our friend from wheeler dealers and a number of tv shows good dude like him. Alive had a couple up and down so it was relationships recently. Everybody's been watching the tabloids but he's the owner radford for now so here's the thing is not to be confused. I don't know the correlation between the radford racing school and radford car company. i don't know that there's a correlation before. I just think it's coincidence. It's similar names. Radford was a car brand from back in the day which they brought back and then the rad for racing school. I think has a different explanation behind their name. I think for for sure but Interesting question if anything. It's just licensing of the name the same history but these are different companies. So yes so radford. The car company has announced their new car and radford is is a company from jenson button the f one racer from and stead and from mark stubbs. He was he's a designer car designer. Who was at bentley. Bugatti and ask martin and together. These guys put together this this new car company to coach belt. I mean looks like a sports car. Maybe priced as a supercar. Can't really say for sure. They've teamed up with lotus and they took the lotus of vora which is a good lightweight platform with the rear mid engine. And they said what can we do with this.

"Ring round three. We'll get to later on this list of sites. I think he's fed say that it wasn't one by the car. It was one of dr of that day. So you get to around full on ferrari hodan home rat race. They throw they throw their three cars. That's it and the five one to that. Stage is five lead car than almost seven still learning how to four and a half years a power circuit and they had a full proper lineup of drivers and fairly rapidly rodriguez he's left farting alone battle against two three hours veil for these very quick. The full put gnarly nomin seven which joan wire decided to do around off the practice. So there's a whole different story there about the tension between the two words teams that car pumped her. I think syphilis card at bowman right basically rodriguez had to drive against the three ferraris. They even started moving. Chris ayman around their leave for drives to try and catch him. The okinawan lost. Tom and he was in the car so i would become a theme in nineteen seventy. Petro did an awful lot. The driving united's kind of heated the maximum allowed by the regulations. Leo would drive the car. Or whoever's co-driver drive the car for the bit that made it legal and then pedro got back in again so you had three three bigger engine ferrari's chasing the whole time and but i never got too. They were never able to catch him. So yeah a big high ground way in he. He said himself that he'd had draw basically flat out the whole way. Which in those days. You wouldn't do that very often. So to dry flat for thousand kilometers around moans with ferrari's chasing. You think that that was that was cost special. Drive his mind to that point because he's desperate to try gave ferrari deal but he's absolutely smashing into to pieces at monza. How did i cope with that. I think he was just once he was hitting the call. All you're gonna win. The rice doesn't really matter who is up against. And i guess maybe you'd say what if you keep beating for our eventually for always gonna give you a job so yeah i mean there's no there's no not going to get insofar as attention much better than being his car's or i would say but to be fair to ferrara do think that they ends. I was very aware of petros talents. And they just couldn't quite get for one reason or another. They never caught the deals. You know you had driven their sports car and sixty nine. He did do one or two drives in their foreign car but just just had got to the point of getting a proper deal done and it was on the table again for seventy two. Yes i was. One of those is one of those littler was lauren. His career is true. It's another for the nineteen seventy-one dodge cropper so another race against ferrari. So yeah so i. I'm fairly convinced. In that late sixties early seventies. There were three clear wet weather drivers and i were jackie stewart. Jackie and petrol regas jean-pierre. Outfalls was good as well. But i think the three consistently good performance. Whenever it rained core often students on different ties to the other two so the win would tend to go to whichever side of that equation was better on the day but at nine seventy one. Dutch gone pretty. We had a very rare if you look through history way. The racist tend to be dominated by dr. Who just having that day goes down in history as a great way the draw. This is a rare occasion. Where you get to doing at the same time. And i absolutely leave the rest of the field behind so after five laps six audrey again eighteen seconds clear the field. She's she's not vote was a hugely long circuit. We're not talking the norge life and they just completely thrashed the field. The forest owners were things the have but joseph rodrigues's team i it wasn't wasn't slouch was two seconds of that our regazzoni in the other ferrari had nothing for them. And i just put a fantastic gills. What in places as it dried and got wet again. The advantage you and forwards. Sometimes they change on successive laps. It must've been amazing to watch the sport i would. Anyone that's got the issue or what's to wash defa dick out that comes across a really fantastic race and in the end. Xs car appears to have better attraction. There's a suggestion that bill was a little bit fluffing load. Low revs the engine on the ball a bit more but all during this call downs a bit more rain and a guy. Petra just didn't care just carried on anyway. It's kinda was a bit more conservative and rodriguez coming back at him again and india in developing seconds. Show in the end. So i just thought it was fantastic to have a race where you've got to of the time where the greats actually in an equal situation almost identical at times in the dry. They were really close in the wet. Just a proper. Jill between two mega drive is really trying to think of the last time. That's actually happens in this. Current diva's has skype. But the one in georgia is the chinese girl. In pre and fool twenty ten on the side with jenson button lewis. Hamilton teammates mclaren. That was quite good. Because i think they're both to way. I mean they're both higher lewis's second in the list of all-time f. one where the where the winners and i think jason is fourth or fifth so you know to get f one wet weather stalls going at it but yeah they're very few examples of that's race number. Three is the one thousand nine hundred seventy belgian grocery which is actually his last at form with. Yes i mean. It shouldn't have been. I think it should have been the first of few b. r. n. really but they the p one five three was a was a good car. It was modern car which would really lacked matani. Southgate was father of a new broom if you like it into sixty nine designed a radical but a good sensible car. While he didn't appreciate was that the v twelve was not the most immediate oil. So you needed this much oil through as possible. But he took a few rounds to realize that they lost. They lost a few points to unreliability and for spa he was telling me. I wanna speak to him about it. They put absolutely enormous oil tank on the back of the car. It was something huge to just pump as much oil through the engine as possible. And he said lo and behold the fig together and Yeah he just picks off. He picks off. All the moves. Guy in qualify. Not no great shakes. But i think he's in the lead by the end of that five but because he was fantastic spa cars working but he couldn't shake off. Chris ayman in the march. And we've talked to human. Yeah he's he's one of the best drives not to win a world jaji grand prix and those he really wanted it and they were together pretty much. The whole race showed pedro. Kids withstand pressure on those nice managua robot. Into even if you use gathers caught nas line about human you.
