"I'm joined by Matt Q and Jess mcfadden, and we'll be analyzing the singer poor Grand Prix and the shambles that followed, but that wasn't the biggest race today, not by a long way, because our friend and colleague, Luke Smith completed the London marathon today, just over 5 hours. We couldn't be more proud raising money for charity. Done it myself, in over 5 hours, similar time to Luke funnily enough, Matt, have you ever fancied putting on your trainers for 26.2 miles? I've not run it before. My brother has, so in a competition to be parents favorite charge, he has that over me, but no real desire. I enjoy obviously the endorphins after I just find it so tedious, so it's got to be, I've got to be kicking a ball or have a rack at my hand to make exercise that bit more fun, but fair play to Luke an amazing cause, really, really inspiring job saying how hard he's been training. And if I had to write an autosport, runners ratings for the Singapore Grand Prix weekend Lee could be getting a slam dunk ten, I can assure him of that. And Jess, I swear I've seen on your socials, you've put stuff like, oh, just home for a run, what is that? Is that like a little 5 K park runner or thinking one day that you might bite off a little more like Luke today and do the do the full marathon? No. No, well, so I was one of those people that got into running in lockdown. I wasn't really, I wouldn't ever call myself a runner. I was a bit like Q in that I prefer sports or actually doing something competitive rather than running. I find running quite tedious sometimes, but seeing as there was nothing else to do. My partner and I, we took, well, he's a keen runner, but he's done the London marathon. He's done more than one marathon in his time. So he tried to get me into it. And I don't mind it. I do enjoy it, but I'm definitely one of those people where I need to run with other people, like I can't do it on my own. And I know that you've got a big crowd of people with you for the marathon, but oh my God, I just could not. The idea of taking on that long of a run. Terrifies me. So genuinely what Luke has done is amazing. And obviously, for an amazing cause as well, remembering his mom and raising money for macmillan cancer support is awesome and he should be extremely proud of himself because it's definitely something I can't imagine I would ever do. Absolutely, absolutely. And if you check out Luke's Twitter, the best place probably I imagine the easiest way for me to explain it's Luke Smith F one on Twitter, most people are releasing it how to use it. Luke Smith F one, pinned post at the top, which is a link through to his just giving page, raising money for macmillan as Jess says. And even though it's after the event right now, and he smashed his target, whatever you can pass their way. I know it's a tough times, everything's tight at the minute, but you really will be helping and it will be massively appreciated. All right, here we go, then. Let's get into the Singapore Grand Prix. Business as usual. Really, leclerc was on pole. But he didn't win. Sergio Pérez took the lead before turn one. And he never ever looked back. Metaphorically, of course. He was looking at his rearview mirrors for large sections of the race as leclerc piled on the pressure, but couldn't eventually beat him. Hamilton shunted into the barriers, big time, but somehow. Man, that Mercedes is built tough. Change your front wing change of tyres, but unfortunately, put him out of the podium, hunt, which is what he was doing at the time, eventually finishing 9th Verstappen spent the afternoon coming through the pack. He also locked up massively, attempting a move on Norris, which put the Red Bull to the very back of the pack, fighting back eventually finishing 7th and today we should be heaping praise on Perez and talking about nothing else than a fine fine drive in changeable conditions. Well, very wet conditions at the start. Talk about Ferraris double podium talking about McLaren strategy and a big old dose of luck to come home forth and 5th. On both Aston's in the point, stroll 6th Vettel 8th, but instead, somehow, we're asking why fans of the sport that we love didn't know the results for well over two hours after the flag. The world's fastest sport once again takes longer than any other sport in the world to come to a decision. And there's copious amounts of hard data, but once again, the stuarts may the stewards making judgment calls based on how well the driver and their team representative argues their case, looking for mitigating circumstances, long after the race has finished, like it shouldn't be like this. It fosters conspiracy theories about how they're working out how to both dish out the penalty because Perez did break the rules, but also not so much that Red Bull get denied. Like that was what we saw after the race. I'll give you the background and then we can talk about this. Sergio Pérez fell back from the safety car more than the allowed distance of ten car lengths on three separate occasions, earning a 5 second penalty for the final time that he did it. He finished 7 seconds up the road from leclerc at the flag, therefore the result doesn't change, but it's the result that fans had no idea of long after the broadcasters had gone home and that's ridiculous to treat the fans that way and the sport. Now, here's the actual wording of what happens stewards say that poire has dropped back too far on three occasions. The first time lap ten on enters between turns 13 and 14, he was investigated for that and given a reprimand. The second time it happened on lap 36 on the slicks between turns 9 and ten, he was given a warning. The team was given a warning by the race director. The same lap, he did it again after being warned between turns 13 and 14, and for that he was given a 5 second penalty. Not at the time. But hours after the race finished. Let's get into it. You've heard enough of me. Jess, what is going on at the FIA? You're asking the fans that the story isn't over, two hours after, you know, sky had gone off the air if you're in the UK or most of TV broadcasters has stopped reporting because they ran out of broadcast allocation time and we still don't know who's won the race. People find out either through our websites. Hopefully all through social media, who is actually won the race. Now, as it turns out, in this instance, the penalty meant that the race results still stood from the provisional results that we got when the checkered flag dropped. But for me, it's a case of why on earth was something like that. Which happened, as you mentioned, so first incident was lap ten. The last incident was lap 36, so just about just over halfway through the race. Why on earth it took two hours from the checkered flag dropping for the result to be made? Completely ludicrous, it makes the FIA look like a laughing stock. If I'm honest, people just don't believe that the stewards are in control. They believe they're being influenced by people by calling them into this suit.

"It was a dominant victory for Max Verstappen and Red Bull. And he had today's Belgian Grand Prix, a one two for the team, max finishing about two weeks up the road, starting not quite at the back of the grid because there were a lot of penalties to take into account, but a 14th grid spot technically even starting 13th and whilst he and fellow championship contender, Charles Leclerc did start at the back and both made good progress on lap one after that, with their days did diverge will get into that and why it was an amazing day for Red Bull and not a good one for Ferrari and the other winners and losers from today's event. I'm joined by Jess mcfadden. Hayden Cobb and Luke Smith, who is fresh back from the track and look what was it like getting back into Formula One after the summer break. Really, really good, thank you, Martin. It was a nice sort of back to school feel in Formula One. I mean, it's lovely in the paddock. You see lots of people, lots of lots of big sort of life events have happened over the past three weeks or so for many of our colleagues and their Formula One paddock members that's been very, very nice to see. And yeah, it was good to catch up after a little while. So yeah, that was all good. And then when we finally got into the on track action, obviously I think there was, yeah, a familiar result at the end of it. I think obviously we had to pick up on all the Fernando Alonso, Daniel Ricciardo Oscar piastre so much has happened on the news cycle, but when we finally got on track, it was a very familiar result at the end of it. And versa and I think delivering probably one of the most dominant displays I can remember in recent F one history, despite starting so far back. And I think a real death knell maybe for Ferrari sham ship hopes, if it had not already sounded, it does seem that yeah, this display is really, really put into perspective just how far clear of the pack Red Bull is right now. Yeah, Ferrari mentioned that Red Bull are really quick in a straight line, but also really quick in the corners, which is doesn't sound great. Sort of win win, isn't it, really? Yeah, exactly. Luke, in terms of your analysis of watching the race in person today, where do you think Red Bull have got it so right? Because, you know, clearly technical directive zero three 9 has not hobbled the teams that we all that some people thought it was some people even thought it was a conspiracy and aimed at slowing down the quicker teams, but after perhaps some worry a few weeks ago, Red Bull don't need to worry about whatever technical directives have come out because they were brutally fast today, but what in your mind was it that won it for them today? I think it just speaks to how good the RBA team car is as an all round package as you said, it was quick in a straight line and then quickest through the corners as well. So really there's no upside for Ferrari. The Red Bull RB 18 straight line speed, that's been its big asset so far this season where it's really taken a step ahead of the Ferrari. But as far as we know how important that is, it's a 1.2 mile run from when you exit last source all the way to Lake on, obviously through a rouge radion up the kennel straight. And that is where I think you would expect most of the lap time gains to be made by the Red Bulls, but it was actually through the second sector through all the twisty bits where Ferrari running there are high down force package compared to Red Bull this weekend would have been expected to take a step forward and maybe claw back some of that time. But that was actually where Verstappen in qualifying made his biggest gains, which is crazy. So it really just points to how good a groove he was in a weekend. He did one run in Q one, Q two and Q three, obviously had the penalty, but that was still good enough for pole position. And yeah, it's just hard to see any weaknesses in the package right now. One of the drivers passed a comment on I'm trying to remember he hang on. Charles Leclerc passed a comment on Saturday after qualifying saying that if the RB 18 had been designed for any track, it would seem like it's been designed for spa, which I thought was quite telling and also he said after the race that unfortunately Ferrari hasn't got any hope that it was purely a trap specific thing that was why they were so far behind this weekend. I think it maybe is exaggerated and exacerbated some of the differences between Red Bull and Ferrari. But overall, you just can't get away from the fact that that Red Bull package. It just seems better in every single area than the Ferrari right now. And yeah, that is very, very bad news if your name is Charles Leclerc because the title race just keeps getting bleaker and bleaker and that's before we bring in any sort of team strategy errors or on track mistakes or anything as we've seen over the past few years. Jess, Max Verstappen seems to have gone into the settings and turned the AI drivers to easy today because there was no competition. It was almost Brazil 2021 S wasn't it in terms of how easily Hamilton picked through the field last year and max seemingly so this year in spa and two very different tracks, two very different situations, but in terms of the ease at which they cut through the pack was pretty pretty incredible. Even just how quickly he made those positions up on spa as everybody listening knows and as crafty keeps liking to remind us longest circuit on the calendar. The gaps can open up and make if you don't get your passes done early and you don't get strategy right, then you can lose out quite massively. I think Verstappen was aiming for podium when we, when he was starting out because he thought that the likes of science in Perez, who Perez in equal machinery, you would imagine would be as far up the road as he could possibly get by the time that max would have been able to fight through the traffic and get within striking distance. So I think he was thinking a podium would be great, thanks.

"England and Germany's sporting female stars showing how it can be done. And even with W series over the weekend, as well, let's hope we see some more progression into Formula One from Formula One's female future, female stars. Before the race, leclerc and saints weren't worried about George Russell being on pole because they said they had the pace to take care of Mercedes, but they hadn't factored in the fierce opposition that they would face from Czech notes. Oh, the Ferrari pit wall it says here. I'm joined by our chief editor Kevin Turner, Jess mcfadden, and at the track again this week racking up the air miles is Luke Smith. Luke, that was to me a masterful drive from Max Verstappen, who looks every bit oven ready for title number two. What do you reckon? Yeah, it is looking that way now. I must say Martin. I mean, 80 points as you say going into the summer break. He could miss the triple header and just come back in Singapore and still be leading the world championship. It's quite a daunting preposition that I think everyone has going into the second half of the season, but I think today again we saw just wire Max Verstappen is yeah, why he is probably the best driver on the grid right now, why he's performing so well. And even in a race where he made a pretty big arrow, let's face it, that's going to cost him a perfect ten on the driver rating. Sorry for any spoilers, but I know F one editor Matthew is working on that as we speak. And yeah, it was that era in the end didn't actually cost him the race win phenomenally. It was like, yeah, I really brilliant displayed by max. For his way from tenth on the grid slowly brought himself back into contention. The pace was there all along and yeah, when we got into the second stint and when he made that switch to the final set of medium tyres, that is what clenched it. His pace from there was so, so good. Ferrari definitely played into Red Bull's hands and definitely helped max win that race because yeah, they threw away what should have been a definite victory today. But yeah, I think they I think Verstappen again proved why he is the world champion elect. Why is the world champion and why ties with number two is really looking like a formality at this point because he's operating on such a high level right now even he can spin he can qualify tenth and still come back and comfortably win the race. Jess, we saw a brilliant overtake going into turn one from Verstappen for the lead, just amazing ultimate car control. How well did you rate his race? Yeah, I think I have to just echo Luke's comments. It was a champions drive. I think he said on the radio to his engineer GP said we stayed calm and we won the race and I think that is the epitome of Max Verstappen and Red Bull Racing, at least on his side of the garage. It's very controlled, very determined. We even saw it at the start, you know, he was clearly out of position starting P ten today. But he managed to keep his nose clean, literally and figuratively speaking. And just stuck it where he knew he could tire management was a one strategy was a one and he's gone from P ten to winning the race, which is just kind of incredible when you consider how competitive Ferrari Mercedes was looking at least at the start of the weekend, but that quickly petered out. I know Lewis Hamilton has come out and said, if he hadn't had that DRS problem and finished as far back as he had, he had the pace to win the race today. Which you would, he was the fastest guy out on track as we drew the race to a close. I think there is definitely an argument to be had, but I know we don't really like to deal in what ifs because anything could have happened had it played out differently, but yeah, Max Verstappen, he I mean, I've been saying it for a little while now. I wanted it to not be the case, but I don't think max has a competitor this year. In terms of anybody that's going to be looking to challenge him, it would take an absolute implosion at Red Bull. For him to not walk away as the defending champion and champion again this year. And Kev, you've been critical of max before, which didn't win you too many Dutch fans, but you were just, you were just saying it as you saw it. On our season review podcast at the end of the year, you didn't dispute max's talent. You had some issues with the way he went racing. Do you think now that he's got that championship under his belt, you've seen him perhaps become more of a full package? What did you rate his race today? Yes, I think he is a more complete package. I mean, my main issue with him in 2021 was the will to will. Battling with his hands and we talked about that a lot and I think he's shown on numerous occasions this year that he is capable of fighting cleanly and winning and losing he can measure depending on the circumstances. Apart from perhaps I think you took liberties with Schumacher at Silverstone for a championship contender, which we talked about at the time, otherwise now I think he has been very he's becoming a complete package, but I will just take an issue a little bit with Luke and just like he's still throw it off today and had a spin and in another situation that costs you the win. Now he's had two mistakes in races this year in Spain and Hungary that would normally cost you points in its costume absolutely zero and the reason it's costume zero is because of other things going on, namely Mercedes still isn't quite quick enough and Ferrari are a shambles on the pit bull. But that's not maxis Phil. He's delivering. I thought it was a very cool calculated drive other than that moment. He always looked in control out there. Another commentary was getting quite excited about Lewis charging up, but I don't think there was any ever doubt that max was going to win it. I think Lewis second was probably all he was going to get. So now he's going to be in the world championship, no question. Do you think that on a different day on a different corner if he'd have spun perhaps into the gravel or hit a wall, taking himself out, people would have been much more critical of his car controller. I believe he was suffering at the time with either a slipping clutch or he had some technical problems, I think, that were causing him to change some settings on the wheel. Yeah, yeah, that's true. That's true, I think. Well, I thought it was a great recovery. He lost very minimal time. I mean, his car can travel. He's fantastic. I mean, remember the very sideways moment in Brazil in 2016, which I don't think many drivers would have got out of that one at interlagos.

"In France back at his luxurious accommodation is Luke Smith. We have Jess mcfadden and in the UK, Matt Q as well. All right, Luke, we'll start with you as you are there. Were we denied a great race today? Would Ferrari have managed it or did Red Bull have the pace? You've looked at the lap times, what do you reckon on Verstappen's win today? I think we were denied what would have been a very close race between Verstappen and the clerk and even on Verstappen's radio on his in lap is engineered GP sets in well done and quite a kind of said yeah sort of a bit of a shame really that they didn't get a chance to have a proper fight because I think it would have been very, very close. I think we saw in that early phase of the race just how close Verstappen was getting to leclerc and Verstappen said afterwards he was actually surprised by the tiny margin. He was surprised that he could get close and follow quite well. He thought leclerc would be much, much faster. So I was setting up really, really nicely. We know that Red Bull brought in Verstappen quite early, but they were thinking more and more about going for the one stop they thought ty Doe wasn't as bad as they were expecting. So they wanted to get that undercut, get Verstappen in and get him ahead. They would have had track position, but then you'd end up in this position where Ferrari would have probably kept leclerc out a little bit longer. Then brought him in, switched him onto the heart and he'd have had that tyre delta against Verstappen and it would have been this probably reverse cat and mouse game that we saw in the first stint where yeah, Verstappen would have been ahead of the leclerc leclerc had the fresher tires would have been able to catch Verstappen, get ahead of him. Would either of them have considered a second stop. I think it would have been a really good race. So yeah, just a shame that unfortunately we were denies what would have been, I think, a really good finish and yeah, as you said, the title fight, it just takes another step towards looking like it's a bit of a foregone conclusion, unfortunately, a lot can swing, but 63 points is a huge huge lead for Max Verstappen to have as we near the summer break. And max sang that his Formula One championship with Charles Leclerc is bigger than it should be given Ferrari's performance compared to Red Bull. Nobody wants a hollow victory, but all sports people will take the victory because sometimes you create your own luck and sometimes there is just luck. So he'll still take the points, but max still wants a fight in the title. He doesn't want his walk to it, or just or win by default. He's what I'm trying to ham fist Italy say. So look, when you're talking or hearing from the drivers afterwards, what were their reactions? Because from the coverage that we saw on TV, Charles Leclerc took this one completely on the chin and said, hands up, this is all on me. The nose scream over the radio. I think that's going to go down in, yeah, F one radio infamy, I think it was it really just summed up Charles mood there and he was naturally just devastated of throwing it away as he did, but he was as he said he did put his hands up very, very quickly afterwards. There was a bit of confusion even from people in the media center myself included when he said about the throttle over the radio, so it was sort of a suggestion of a question afterwards that we were thinking, oh, okay, was it down to was it similar issue to what we saw in Austria? But it wasn't. He was talking about being stuck on the throttle as he was trying to actually get out of the wall, but the engine wasn't giving any talk, so he couldn't get out of there. The men's race was over. But yeah, he was in the media penny came and saw us, and he was naturally very, very frustrated. He basically said, look, this is all on me. And with the champs, he said, yeah, I've got stop doing stuff like this. I can't expect to win a championship with it. If I keep throwing away these opportunities and these leads and I think it's been a real, I think a real hard weekend for him. I think this is another race where Ferrari could have won should have won and they've thrown it away. The clerk threw away for them today. And it just looks like a race at yeah, it's very, very tough to see how things are going to swing around unless far I got a real runner form and Verstappen and Red Bull start dropping the ball, which they're not doing Verstappen. He said, today that, yeah, you've got to take the points when they come to you. You've got to get what you can. We saw that in Austria where, yeah, he didn't have the pace to win, but picked up a solid second place, and that was very, very good for his bigger championship picture. Same thing again today. The outright pace, I think it was very, very close between them, but the sapp has come away with a massive massive step forward in the title race. He was, I think, naturally very, very pleased with the performance but he said, look, we still need to find more. We still need to take another step forward because Ferrari is so strong right now. And I think that it's just a shame that we've got two teams who are so evenly matched to drivers. I think with the racing with real respect for each other to great young talents, but at the moment we're not getting the kind of tight fight we should be. And unfortunately today, that was all down to Charles Leclerc's mistake. Let's start with the discussion on Charles Leclerc and that title of battle Jess. How hard should we be on him? Because I think it's fair to say, although we don't pick favorites, he's a very likeable person. He's a great sports person role model in that when he messes up, he doesn't say, oh, well, you know, the car was loose at the rear end and it went round. He went, I made a mistake. I think it's a great, you know, he's genuinely also a really nice guy. But how hard should we be on him because Verstappen and Hamilton and world champions don't make these kind of mistakes too regularly? What are your thoughts on Charles Leclerc's championship battle? Yeah, it's a tough one because I guess to be honest, I mean, we're the media, right?

"The podcast today by agron prieto Alex kalanos, Jess mcfadden. We missed you guys last week after Silverstone, not that we don't love Hayden and Kev. And I'm joined by Megan white, who is at his home from home back at the accommodation. From the track today. So Megan would come to you first. You've been there. Your first time to the Red Bull rings are less about how you, what you made of it. Yeah, it was incredible. I mean, it's only my third Grand Prix weekend. My first Barcelona earlier this season, and then I was always still last weekend. And I've got to say the rebel ring was my favorite that I've been to so far. It's an incredible circuit. It's nestled in the mountains, beautiful scenery. And just a really well organized event. None of the problems that we had in Barcelona surfaced. There were no cues in cues for people trying to get in sufficient food, which was always nice. So it was an absolutely fantastic experience from that perspective. You know, brilliant brilliant circuit couldn't recommend the circuit enough. The only problem I would say was the fans. And that's a really sad thing to have to say after a Grand Prix weekend, you know? Everyone's gone to have a great time. Everyone's gone to enjoy themselves, but they're from my experience being out among the fans and wandering around. I didn't like the atmosphere really. I thought it was quite a, it was a highly charged atmosphere, which can be a good thing, but this one wasn't. Of a certain driver? Yeah, so, you know, I don't mean to be negative, but the vast majority of fans there were Max Verstappen fans, so it does skew the percentage of each driver's fans that were behaving badly, but the vast majority of fans with F one driver and they were not behaving well. We saw I saw groups of fans from who supported other drivers who generally seem to be behaving quite well. But, you know, a good example is one night we were leaving the circuit and there was a Verstappen fan publicly urinating and a group of Mercedes staff members walked past in their team gear and he shouted jeering and shouting at them and that was after qualifying. The whole atmosphere that all that kind of behavior was really symptomatic of the way that I felt like people were behaving. There was a lot of excessive alcohol consumption. There was a lot of what I would say like a log on out. You know, I'm not opposed to people going and having a good time at a circuit, but I do think that especially given what we've heard from other fans you've been there this weekend, there is definitely a limit and it was way surpassed by the behavior of the people who are there this weekend. Let's get into it straight away. We're going to talk about we've got an hour to do this. And we're going to talk about the result. And it's a fantastic result for Sharla Clare, not necessarily for Ferrari because of reliability woes. But this has been a horrible topic to get into, but let's just get into it and cover it off Jess. I mean, can you talk us through how you sum up some of the new stories that we've heard coming out of Austria? Yeah, I mean, again, probably important to note that I don't think it is just a problem with Austria. We've since had multiple stories come out from Silverstone last week as well. I've had a lot of people DMed me because I've been quite vocal about this topic on my own social channels and I have a lot of people reach out to me and tell me things that have happened both this weekend and last weekend. And as you say, it's a very last year last season was extremely charged and I think that we're still kind of feeling the rumblings of that in terms of the dynamic between British fans, Dutch fans, Lewis Hamilton supporters, Max Verstappen supporters. First off, I think we're very brave to take to Twitter and share their stories and say, this is happening. This just happened to me or happened to a friend or I witnessed this. And I think it was just the volume of people that were coming out and as to Meghan's point, it seemed to be that this track in particular has a reputation. I actually had a lot of people reach out to me and say that it was the same even back in 1985, a fan said that they witnessed a lot of lousy behavior. My only real experience of heavily. We don't want to make this about gross generalizing groups of people. So I'm definitely not wanting to start this out as like it being Dutch fans. I don't think that's fair. I think for all of this, it is a minority of people that are ruining it for the majority. As often is the case, but my first Grand Prix was spa 2014. Going as a fan. Well, I've been to Silverstone for a couple of odd but never race day. And it was my full my first full weekend. And I found the Dutch know how to party, right? They are there for a good time. And when I was there, they had full hgv vehicles with DJ booths and double beds in it and they were going until 5 o'clock in the morning and there were fireworks being set off at 5 o'clock in the morning. And I will say as a fairly young fan at the time, it was quite intimidating. But luckily I never received any bad behavior towards me. But I think the number of people that have said that bad things have happened to them. Yeah, the amount of stories that are coming out, I think it's just concerning and it's caused a lot of people to look inwardly at what the sport is doing. And I think there was enough of a rumbling that F one felt the need to power statement, which is good, but yet again, we're here, we're actually, is what we need just a statement or what are they going to do the to back this up? Because the fear I have that happens a lot when we come to these areas of or start talking about problems between fans or harassment or social injustice is that governing bodies or companies can hide behind these statements and go, well, we box tick that. We addressed it. We said it was a barren. We said we won't stand. But actually, what does that mean? The issue that I have is that what we don't want is for F one to pass the buck to the circuit promoter and a circuit promoter to keep passing the buck back to F one. There needs to be as a collective as a championship, just as the FIA as a governing body needs to come together with everybody involved and go, how do we stop this kind of behavior happening? Because one of the really upsetting things that I've seen is that people are now talking about not going to races because of this behavior. To

"For to be fair, I've never been to the beverage as a fan, but the orange army certainly make it look like a spectacle and a bit of a festival atmosphere, similar to sort of what Silverstone had, obviously, a bit more European feel. The one thing that did sour the taste, which is more of an ongoing thing is the booing or sorry, the cheering of when Lewis Hamilton crashed by the Max Verstappen fans. It's a difficult matter because I understand the upset and its part and parcel of the drama and a bit of the soap opera. And indeed, it's a million times worse in other sports football in particular. But yeah, it just is a bit unsavory. It's a bit like, yeah, he's already out. You don't need to like celebrate because of these previous rivalries. I know what you mean. It's where football but it's where Formula One becomes more football than more rugby. And rugby has intense rivalries, but at the final whistle. You go for a beer together, and all the fans of either side will talk about how your teams did, and everyone's Friends. And everyone is twice as drunk as at football. And everyone's still friends. And yet, in football, just because of no reason. You utterly hate the person standing next to you because they choose to support a team. And it went for me ones like that that I've got less time for. I mean, I know, was it on I was caught as last week when we were Silverstone we're doing the live podcasts from the GP racing fan village. Described it as a bit of panto. You know, you know, when the story was very fantastic. And I'm like, I don't know if I want F one to be so panto, but I guess, you know, I'm I don't know. The concern and I think perhaps to make it a bit more serious, the concern would be is if Hamilton say had a bigger accident and was injured and then you've got fans cheering because he's crashed. That is, yeah, that's just poor. Not that you need to, but you wouldn't see anybody cheering that Joe craft at the start of the British Grand Prix. No, but remember last year, when Hamilton and Verstappen came together at Silverstone, as Verstappen went through the gravel and hit and had that massive G impact, if you watch some of the Twitter videos or the videos that people posted after the event from their own cameras, the crowd, the Silverstone crowd, were like, way. Like, when he went off, there was a big cheer, and then a millisecond later when he hit everyone. Oh, that was nasty. But the instant reaction was to cheer Verstappen getting knocked off, so like the Brit fans did that and that's horrible, but still. It is both sides. This isn't British media. No, no, no, no, no. Which we told all the time that we're anti Verstappen. It couldn't be further from the truth. Definitely, if it goes the other way around, which would be fair we did see a bit of it, like you say, God has mentioned it about Silverstone and Verstappen getting booed or whatever like this. It does happen both ways in lots of places, but I think yeah, when it gets a bit more serious, that's when it starts crossing the line. The panto and the soap opera thing is one element, but if sort of danger and injury starts coming into it and they're still doing that, that's really bad. Dear listen, let us know your thoughts. You can email podcaster auto sport dot com that is you can send us an email or a social media stuff, but if you want an email, podcast at auto sport dot com with your thoughts on any of the things that we've talked about today, we can bring up your email or if you don't want us to share it, we can just send us an email and say, don't share this on the air, but we'll be back.

"Max Verstappen beat Charles Leclerc to victory, in Formula One's first Miami Grand Prix, winning after passing on track early on and defying pressure after a late safety car caused by a collision between McLaren's Lando Norris and Pierre gasly. Ferrari could not turn their front row lockout into a one two finish and I want to know from the guys on the podcast today where the Red Bull considered themselves unlucky not to get a one to finish. It was a power unit issue possibly holding Perez back in fourth. Instead, it would be Verstappen, leclerc, science, podium, not the last time we've seen that podium I bet you in 2022. I'm joined on the podcast today from Miami. It's so nice to have you guys all sat around a table back at the races again. We've got Luke Smith, Jess mcfadden and out of his box, Stuart coddling at cottage will start with you back at a Grand Prix. Literally out of my suitcase and out of the box room, which I share with the air con unit, which we've fortunately turned off so that our listeners don't hear some terrible wine in the background. Usually the wine in the background is me, of course. Carlos Sainz finished third ahead of a hobbled Sergio Pérez. George Russell coming in 5th in the first of the Mercedes followed by Lewis Hamilton, Russell would gain massively with the safety car timing and beating his teammate in that battle afterwards. Verstappen, well, he would do half the job at the start of the race, being aggressive around the outside of turn one to take second place from Carlos Sainz and really science had nowhere to go if he had a break any later. He risked running into the back of his teammate so Verstappen taking one place there on lap 7 Verstappen would get within DRS range of Leclair and two laps later passed him at the same turn one to take the lead and from them never looked back. Was it an easy cruise to victory? Could Ferrari have won today in any way? Well, Mercedes Benz delighted after that 5th and 6th. Other stories to get into today Bottas, finishing 7th, but will he feel hard done by because he was running much higher for much of the race. Aachen finishing in 8th some late penalties, which if you turned off the coverage, straight after you might not know about, Alonso, you might think was 9th, but he wasn't two 5 second penalties. In 9th place, Alex Albon and in tenth, Lance stroll. So let's start with Luke. From the coverage, which always is difficult when you're watching the Formula One on the director is choosing certain things. It looked like a bit of a not quite a walk in the park because he looked pretty shattered afterwards with his helmet off, but it did look like Verstappen had that one under control. What's your analysis? I think he did definitely face pressure from leclerc. I think Red Bull definitely had the pace of advantage this weekend. I think that we saw it was pretty comfortable once he got those moves completed and got into the lead and he managed to build up quite a decent advantage over the first and he didn't need to react immediately when the clerk tried to get a bit of an undercut because the gap was so big left it too laps and came in. And yeah, it was still a good sort of 6, 7 seconds up the road and was able to hold that gap pretty firm. And I think that the only real pressure we saw max come under was after the safety car period and that obviously gave the clerk a chance to get back into the fight. They were on the same similar age of hard tires. That obviously meant there wasn't a huge advantage either way. And DRS meant that leclerc was able to get close. Now a few times he was sort of having a little look, getting quite close, but he can never get close enough to really go for a proper lunge and make a move and then yeah, we saw leclerc in the closing stage just began to fall away a little bit and that max was able to get home pretty comfortably in the end. But I think it was, yeah, it was a weekend that I think he definitely had to fight through. I thought that he was brilliant at the start. He said that he found a lot of grip on the outside of turn one, which was something a lot of the drivers didn't really find. They were all trying to stick on that inside, but he swung it around the outside well to get science. And I think that it was a really good performance for max. I think he's going to be quite high on Alex's drive ratings, not a ten though, without wishing to bring any spoilers in, but it was, yeah, I think a really good display from max. And I think that, again, points to the fact that Red Bull does have a very slight but very important pace advantage over Ferrari at the moment. And for max, I think there's a stack going around Twitter of all the races he's actually finished this year and that includes the sprint race at imola, of course. He's won. So it's a really, really strong start to the year for him. And obviously not leading the championship, but I think him and Red Bull are in a really good spot right.

"Out the live section free practice three and then qualifying on Saturday as well. And I made the joke at the beginning of the podcast at not bitter at all, but Hayden, you know, you really have got so much to call on in Miami. We've got Alex kanakis at F one editor at the event as he is a sort of always does anyway with Matt Q, but also we've got Stuart coddling from GP racing, Jess mcfadden has gone over there as well. Who am I missing? Jonathan noble. I think they just did all in some big Airbnb somewhere. I hope so. Luke Luke Smith there as well. He's been of course. A lot of the sort of auto sports social media face of it currently. Yes, I think they have a great time, basically. I'm not jealous at all. No, I get to say it all through the screens and through the information, which is good. BS, I would look forward to we'll have a feature very shortly on digging into the practice pace. Obviously that we traditionally have the sort of post practice analysis on a Friday and yeah, be curious to see how the numbers shake up from Alex because like you say we've had basically Verstappen and signs is input, basically taken out of it, does this mean that there really is a Mercedes sort of return at the front. I'll see what he says. See, because they're off more often than not, they are correct. So yeah, it could be a very clear indication of what to expect come Sunday. For listeners who are signed up to autosport plus check out the plus section for Matt Q writing about how Formula One finally cracked America and I mentioned Charles as well. The inside story of F one's newest racetrack here. He lives in Miami's and expat, but very much a Miami man these days long-term listeners and.

"First and fourth and finished. First and fourth, but it wouldn't be the fairytale conversion of pole position to race win. The Sergio Pérez instead it was Max Verstappen taking the win. Over Ferrari Charles Leclerc by half a second with an enthralling last gas battle between the two, Carlos Sainz finishing third as Ferrari extend their constructors lead over Red Bull. Sergio Pérez did everything right according to Christian Horner until that early pit stop that he took followed a lap later by a safety car with the others in the top fight getting effectively a cheap pit stop demoting Sergio down nothing he could have done about that. Let's analyze what happened, how it played out. What an amazing afternoon of racing. Or evening of racing that was at Alex, and Jess mcfadden, and I know it's early stages of the season, but we saw Charlotte Clark pulling on alongside Max Verstappen after they finished the race giving him the thumbs up and in the podium and interviews afterwards, lots of love shared between them, saying they enjoyed the tough but fair battle between them are a relationship there that we hope stays positive throughout the season and talking relationships, our sponsor of the podcast once again, our friends at better help online therapy. Relationships take work. A lot of us will drop anything to help somebody else and somebody we care about, but how often do you care about yourself, that important relationship where you look after yourself, stick around around halfway through the podcast that I will tell you about our offer with our sponsors better help and what we're doing with them this week. Make sure you keep listening. So, guys, I'll start with Alex. New rules, new cars seems to be working out all right then. Or if we just been lucky for a couple of races, that was a fantastic fantastic couple of hours to spend for any racing fan watching today, wasn't it? It certainly was Martin. But I'm actually, I'm glad you come to me first because I've got a pick you up on something you said on last night's podcast, which I listened to, because I'm a diligent colleague. Sorry to hear that. Someone's got to. And apparently I live in a palatial bedsit. You heard that. I do hear that, yeah. That's quite an interesting description of my one bedroom flat in northeast London. I can happily report that it sits between palatial and bedsit. It is neither of those things, charming, one bed flat. I think that would be the description of grapefruit but no, that amusingly greatly when I heard that. But yeah, what a race. It was very interesting. As you say about Sergio Pérez, very, very unlucky with the timing of his stop. I think he was starting to struggle with his tires. I think it looks like if you just hear the one radio message from Ferrari, it kind of looks like Red Bull got dummy into making that stock, but effectively what Ferrari had done is do the opposite. There's no point pitting on the same lap as the car in front of you. You're definitely going to lose out. Well, it's just going to stay the same effectively. You're gambling on a pit stop going wrong, and they don't tend to do that that often it Red Bull. So yeah, he was very unfortunate at the time in the safety car, although Red Bull, let's face it. I mean, there's still must be riding the high of the safety car they got in Abu Dhabi. So I don't think they can have too many complaints on that fund. And then it won the team won the race anyway, Max Verstappen. But yeah, as you say, Martin, it's the key thing here is the battle once again, a thrilling fight to Max Verstappen and Charles Leclerc. And I think we're now getting enough evidence to say that yes, these rule changes have really helped. They can follow each other. They can pull off overtakes. They weren't able to last year. But it's interesting, Verstappen says it's less to do with the design of the cars and it's more to do with how the tyres behave, which I know some people go, oh my God, it's still Formula One talking about tires. They are just absolutely critical to the outcome of qualifying performances. That's why Verstappen not necessarily getting the most out of things in both Bahrain and here in Saudi Arabia. But he seems to be thinking that's what's making the battles so exciting. But what I really enjoyed was there was sort of a sense last year a correct sense that it was Verstappen being over the top, the majority of the time going up against Lewis Hamilton, who was choosing not to have accidents. What would happen if Verstappen tried that against another younger rival? And Charles Leclerc, I mean, I've always rated him since I covered him for covered him in formula two. He's a phenomenal driver and showing that he can really, really do it. Wheel to wheel. So yeah, we're starting to see evidence that it is the cars. It is the new eggs that obviously the change to the 18 inch wheels is going to help that. You know, he's going to help he's part of the package of changes. So yeah, as you say, a fantastic, a fantastic racing spectacle. Yeah, a 100%. I mean, this is why we're watching Formula One, right? We want to see racing. So they're delivered, which is great. And very much aligned with what Alex is just said. But for me, I think building on what Alex said and kind of hinting at what you were suggesting there Martin. It was the what I really enjoyed was how clever the racing was. I think from everything was, it wasn't just about who's got the fastest car or where the two top teams today were finding the advances in the disadvantages and using that against one another. It was about it was about the fact that they were cleverly using DRS and kind of playing mind games at 200 miles an hour, which I just still find extremely impressive. The fact that they can do that..

The full we really get into things and dissect how everything unfolded let star as we always do with a quick roundup of your race ratings nuke you were that in in the midst of all what are you gonna give. Maybe a five. I think might be quite fair. Five or six. I thought it was a very interesting race. Something that will look good little storyline. So they're coming through. And i thought we saw lots of good overtaking bit voluntary action even at the front. I guess yeah. It was pretty straightforward for us and there was a point when i was kind of thinking. Is anyone going to pay. All we can have just a no stock race at the blight to flag. That would have been very strange. A of intrigue over the pit stops and winds. Come in and weather's come in which obviously played against louis hamilton. The huge story. I guess after the race but yeah it was a funny. I i think i would settle on a on a six. I think for okay. You went up a little bit that as you spoke three. That jess what you're gonna say. I think i'm actually glad that looks at that. Because i couldn't. I couldn't tell how i felt about it. And just before we came on air. I was starting to talk about how i felt about the right scenario and was like stop no save with us but yeah i felt a bit strange. I don't even know how to really describe it. Not quite i just like the. It felt like that was going on. And i'm sure there's gonna be lots for us to discuss but not actually too much to kind of get overly excited by thames of a race. It didn't really play out super excitingly. They were just a lot of pockets of things in the way things ended up in the way that things have ended with quite dramatic strategy. Call from mercedes is kind of givers enough to talk about. But yeah it wasn't exactly a thriller and whip said on previous poke costs before the. I usually a judge a race based on how often i'm kind of looking away and checking other things like what's going on on twitter and i did it quite a lot during that race. Which is why. I feel like it was quite low down that kind of waiting in the latter stages to see if the track would dry out which mysteriously it just never did or at least not to a point where we kind of go any change away from the interviews that we saw so yes strange. One i think y- i'm tearing bef- to in between timing varying between a five and a six so maybe i'll get five and a half. Just to kind of sit in the middle straddle. Those two schools. I'm sitting between a five and a six as while. I'm not entirely sure where i would pin. I thought they were flashes of really engaging stuff like jessica said and then other times was Is kind of drying out low bit. So i'm probably gonna go five and a half. I feel like that's harsh but guy with that without now. We'll what change reminds me under the poet before we continue. Let's quickly run down. How the race unfolded. Courtesy of alex kalinowka so to sports grand prix edita at the start of the cars were fitted with intermediate ties. The top three scrambled off the line with batas comfortably leading the sapin into town one despite the tricky conditions. Earning lock one incidents Tapping fernando alonzo as the.

It was a disastrous day to the top contenders with max stopping and lewis hamilton clutching the red woolcott. Winding up on top of the mercedes and as a result neither driver finishing the rice. Max and has since been penalized for the accident. Receiving three place grid penalty and two penalty points on his licence. I'm we're gonna get into all of the discussion surrounding that later. In the podcast. There is a lot unpaid today. There were many stories today that we probably won't get round to discussing but we're gonna have a good guy on joining me to do so. Is it jess mcfadden. Director of strategy might Network hayden call editor of order and a very special guest harry benjamin podcast and commentator. Harry hayden is lovely to have you joining us harry first of all. How are you doing. Thank you very much for having me on. i'm good. Thank you hectic racist. Arson in sunday's always busy birth. Yeah very happy to be on. Thank you for having me and your fast time joining us on the Protests how are you feeling now. Good thank you. It's been a busy well managed to get through it. Just about so at yeah. It's been a good weekend an absolute pleasure. Having you joining us today. Harry and russo yourself hated. We can't wait to get stuck into the conversation now. You guys may not know but we always like to kick off the podcast with a race racing so that is exactly what we're gonna do today. We're going to just fast so that you can yuna so of c- a baseline for what how're we tend to write on. Then we will comet to you guys. jess what that you're gonna give today's yeah again Trekkie race to rates are in. Need because i think up until the red bull pitstop looked like it was going to be quite dull. It looked like it was just going to be quite easy to maintain. It was really tricky to out. There wasn't going to be too much a change in the running older but then we do get gifted these moments again. I say gifted depends on. If you're a red bull mercedes pharma guests gifted with these weird happenings and all of a sudden everything gets right into question. We have a bunch of things happening up and down the field. We had drivers making mistakes. We had a penalties and It was so after that it was quite entertaining. Not so much of a a huge strategy race but the west interesting strategies going up and down most. Interestingly i guess for mercedes pulling out lewis hamilton on hard tyres on the grid when he's in pay for and everyone kind of tanning around and thinking now is going on over here but ended up you know could have been a blinder strategy. Had we seen how that played out but we didn't so i'll get smart racing. I'm gonna give it. I'm gonna give seven. I'm slightly cautious. Only because again. I think had we not had the craziness happening. It might have been in weapon very very different but the second half of that race it was full hall. Pounding kind of edgy statement site and obviously a great great resentful from clara in the end but yet it wasn't it wasn't amazing but i think it had enough that will be talking about this race a for for the rest of the season pay saudi seven guys a decent decent bracing. Harry what you're going to give it out of ten very difficult to disagree with. A lot of justice said there was bit of danger that it was going to be a bit of a stop but i was also thinking of the number seven but actually i'm gonna go with an eight because to see daniel ricardo on the top step of the party once again and mclaren one two and we have fights down the field as well i would have liked to seen a bit more of how latifi go ahead of the the to alpine's at one point and he then oversee fell back a bit but george russell had a bit of a rice. Getting into ninth once again as well so there was action. Sort of all the way through the field. We didn't see much of it. Because naturally the headlines would take by verstappen hamilton which again added to the spice and drama peres. Batas both coming through as well. They looked at one point that he was going to challenge so for me. It had all the right ingredients. We think to get a full time. We were robbed of some of those things playing out by the safety obviously by the snapping at hamilton early retirements but overall i'd say that was a solid eight for me k. One up when jess hayden. What are you giving at definitely go up again nine. Nothing you've been on the selling it. Daniel ricardo winning from fire in.

You high ariana and heights the listeners. Yes it was good to chat in the in the product early on sale. Now back at my hotel having having yet over decompress after considering the second as formula sprint race. And yeah i mean it was the silverstone one who's particularly new and we go out go to judge everything for the whole weekend to finish before we can really say if it was a success or failure or it was just a little bit more interesting because it was lewis hamilton. An extra stop going hammer and tong. The front you not necessarily of action at silverstone but they were chasing each other pre closely stays just fell a bit met has not very very analysis or grump reedited wealthy but it just thoughts.

Jonathan neighbor colleague might support dot com spoke to ross brawn early on in the week. And i said yet. We hear people's frustration about the sprint race Sorry the driver topping qualifying on friday. Not getting the post that we hear that. Maybe that's something. They're look at changing says goods. Let's keep up the pressure if we can but yeah that's kind of what i'm feeding off the seconds but my sister not very much happened. Doesn't we talk about well. These calls are designed to you know to be competitive in nineteen minutes review if you just stopped the race before the first pit. Stop you expect you to be much action. particularly there's no chaos at the first corner was the safety car and you know what would have helped things ties. And under his stretch particularly the run starting in the mclaren. Say yeah. I think I think there's generally a feeling of more negatively towards it than there was a silverstein chesting very very interesting there now. Let's talk about the process day and as you said. He banked himself by himself slot yesterday in qualifying kept onto it today for the sprint but is going strip. Wait down because of changing engine. But it's been a really solid weekend for him and is sought to shame. The is not going to be able to convert on the race on sunday.

It seems like maybe the pressure on saturday of your future so of lifting off. Have you heard anything from him since the f. one sprint about why he is feeding say comfortable this weekend and so confident on the track. He didn't really touch on in the in the post race.

Tweet this is peak boundary. Batas astor to have been doing an amazing weekend and yet will get nothing from it. So far in this can come through and deliver an amazing result in the race tomorrow and i will say is. I spoke to mercedes earlier on today and they did confirm that he did get a heated. Get a an a A genuine performance at benefit from taking that new engine and bearing mind it was less than a tenth of a second the gap between himself and his teammate lewis hamilton in qualifying yesterday so while the team you know they weren't going to be putting an exact figure on it both has definitely benefited from from what happened there from from taking that that fresh engine however he still he's still delivered it he sportsperson. You can only play the circumstances in front of you really especially things like In qualifying and the race and so you and put us nowadays so absolutely fascinated him. Well done it's just going to be. I just faith what might happen tomorrow. In terms of we saw last year when he was down the order in that crazy. Italian grand prix. He didn't make any progress. There was able to and that was when they both had a massive car advantage over the rest of the field so as we saw. We've we've learned how much my sleigh after each back from his post as you said. Ariana couldn't get lenore soap. Not i think it's a slam dunk. That mercedes is going to make massive ground up tomorrow. Let's stay on the mercedes topic before we get to how they might fed. Tomorrow we dig into that but deepa lewis start today. What's happened now. What what went wrong. Because it was quite a poor start from him of course dropping right back down. The order losing that advanced. He had starting the p. To a lot people saying before you know given the bosses going to be dropping down the order anyway puts lewis in such a strong position on the team in quieter quite favorable position in terms of how they could play the sprint today. But lewis's star just really let him down. I guess he certainly did. It certainly did ambato st so of hints. That team orders were effective. Your mccarthy said possibly we would have done the swap because of the obvious situation bearing a referring to hamilton being in the top. Five max or stopping in the drivers championship. But yeah we've with. Winston stop basically said he was He was two millimeters too deep with the clutch padres es mistake of releasing higgins targets on the clutch. And it just goes we will spend you know. He launched okay. Attraction was was there seems to be but as soon as as soon as it came to to the it's been in the later phases. That's really what cost him and he was on the back for immediately at at this web. Of course some really Defend hard but fair against the landowners. Then he's got swamped ricardo. Who's coming by the starting mcgowan on the other side. Gase got by him as well So yeah i mean it could have been even worse. Radio you constantly doesn't enforce just tap. The left retire of avocados mclaren and break his front wing. Housing could well have ended up behind him. I may have got urban with get back by the. Yeah definitely as you said. We saw him defending a hard but fair against the cause around him. Do you think that in that position that he was in a part of him. It was probably thinking. Don't don't do anything to radical. Because of course you don't wanna risk damage getting coop. Any scraps expected to play a little bit safe. When you do have about solve star so that you can line up you know. People five as opposed to at the very back of the packing unit crashing out. Do you think any even goes into the drive as minds on a sprint. Light day or do you think as soon as is lights out that satan. And they're fighting that he go. I think we'd hamilton. Today was more than he had any other choice or anything there was. There was anything he could do. Just because of the nature of that rundown. Someone's i've been..

"Around bravo. And this is the sport. Podcast race say at the belgian chrome pre but in an incredibly strange china events. We didn't really get much of a race atoll whatsoever. Pacific throughout the day and race control announced shortly before the pond race saw at three o'clock local time the formation not to be completed behind the safety. I'm pushed the style of these formation laps to three twenty five. The field completed. Two full formation ops but with most of the drivers reporting visibility and a lack of grip the racers red flight at three fifty. An old drivers returned to the pit lane. A lengthy delay followed but with the rain showing no sign of stopping and the time. Ticking down from the start of the three hour window. Three the chances of running a race to award full points greece slim with one hour remaining on the clock at five o'clock the shoes temporarily stopped the race. Freezing the clock to try and wait for a break in the weather. The rain slightly so the coach could return to the track behind the safety car. Six seventeen passing green exit and competed to full laps to ensure the race was official and a classification could be issued during the thaad lap behind the safety car. Race control red flag. The race again prompting the drivers to retire the lane before it was officially declared the final result at six forty four it means the stopping officially wins the voucher grand prix for red bull scoring twelve point. Five points for the victory while george. Russell scored his fast f. One podium in second place to williams scoring nine points. The stop inside to rival lewis. Hamilton completed the podium. That place picking up seven point five points on. That is the rundown of a very very strange race today. I'm joined by jess mcfadden directive of district strategy for Net watt leaks. Mattis was f. One reporter has been a long long day. How are you very think that race is aged me about ten years and nothing even happened. It was just so intense just trying to pick a paw exactly what we do in such a strange scenario restore that's day so it's been a lot of rulebook analysis interpretation and listening to various radio messages but it was just good to say well was it say i'm not sure. The team seemed to be just as confused us. So i'm gonna take that as a k. That we that we had to take some time to work out what was going on this day because it was yeah. It was a definite a race. I am not going to forget in a hurry. And i don't think f wolf again. Hurry either yeah. I agree late. How failing yeah it's been. It's been a pretty hectic. I think we've all tried to assess understand what exactly it's been going on. And what rules. Apply what rules don't apply and if we results if we don't have results if there are on point some whatever and it's been it's been a very tricky one and i think that ultimately one can never it can never plan for crisis scenarios like this to an obsolete take like we could never have predicted fully. This is exactly what was going to happen. We've got to be balanced. And obviously i think a lot of fans. I'm sure we're getting two very upset that they didn't really get race today. Yeah very difficult. I formula one. I think and i think it can learn from I feel. I feel pretty pretty spent honest to be. Yeah beer i shall. I'm not even gonna lie beer as we speak trying. While does after the day that you would have had to try to keep track of orders the craziness that was unfolding now. Usually we kickoff wave race writings but it doesn't really seem right given the nothing really happened today. So you just to recap the results for any lessons may have. That may not have saved watching till the very end. Maximum stopping classified fast followed by george roster analyst hamilton. Meaning that lewis says head in the championship by just three points. Daniel recalled it was classified place ahead of sebastian veteran. Faith housley say i'm esteban. Oklahoma seventh show decline is recorded as finishing eight. For ferrari two bases clear of teammate. Colossians whilst nicholas feet took nine giving williams back to back double point finishes outside of the top ten. We had financial on eleventh ahead of altro batas and tiny nazi lander norris classified as fourteenth having received a five place grid penalty due to a gearbox changed following his accident yesterday. Yuki snyder was fifteen with the houses of mixture mecca. Anneke muslim behind followed by me. Reichen ama- says your peres off. The he crashed out on the way to the grid but rebel. Why able to use the delays to repair his call so he was able to race. Non stroll was classified as lost after receiving a ten second penalty for wing change which dumped him down from eighteen to that loss position. I think that is correct. But we have had some confusion even since the end of the rice about the caucasians which we will get into. But let's just try to walk through this as best we can. Let's start with some of the fast confusion that we had with today's race about whether the race had actually started or not because we had on the radio. I can't believe i'm saying this. We had the radio and the teams you has. This race started or not. What lapa lapa we're going to be. We reduced what was going on. That jess i mean. I know that you equally confused. I saw you tweeting about it. Own when the teams don't even know where we are weird situation right. The would unprecedented got bandied about Quite a lot today. But i guess is i think if anything. This is the definition of unprecedented. The the way that that we had to kind of address this race was was bizarre beyond belief as we keep saying but i think so the the confusion came in. How many formation lapsed we done and whether that counted towards the start or not and we also have to take into account the fact that we have this time period in which we have to complete a formula one grand prix and that everybody rather confused. Because i mean even the f. One timing screens were confused because at one point the clock haven't started and then it had started on. That's the three hour window in which you have to complete complete grump raid in order for its count Or at least in order to to decide how many points we're going to be awarding was full grand prix as well as the lap counter. Which we're going to get onto later on as well so a bunch of stuff happening and and essentially people couldn't decide initially whether because we did an additional formation because of how bad the weather woes whether or not counted as one of the rice. We also had on top of that just to make things extra complicated every time that michael massey cold for a delay to the race star it removed a lap from the title laps complete needed to be completed for the race so there was a bunch of stuff going on the delays that were removing laps from the title. Counselor that was the countdown clock that had started but what we essentially manage to find out about two hours into the race. Was it the race. Technically hadn't started until the safety cau- left the pit lane with the drivers entire at the stock. Which just to add further confusion was also colder resumption because they said right the race will be resumed not started so l. Just got very very confusing. Because we i guess just never really saw an initial getaway that we would say. That's the start of a grand prix. So that's that's basically. I have no idea if i've explained that any any well but essentially why we got confused. The teams were confused. The pundits were confused. We were confused. Mean the the to and froze going on our to'real chat trying to decide if the race had started on all was just. It just goes to show that. Actually i think one of the main takeaways today i think is really important is how important is have really clear direction and clear communication not just to the teams but also to the media in times of what is going on because i mean local. No better than than i will. But i just felt like that was Direction and there was no communication and it was lucky enough for at least on our side that we had the faa radio still going between colosseum the teams so that we could at least a kanai. There are still questions about whether or not this race has begun or how long we've got left to do how lax play because it just seemed like no one knew which is you can give element of forgiveness. I guess when it will strange. But yeah i mean the amount of red flags we thought the season is is is crazy So yeah i think it's just a just goes to show that in times of crisis like this..

"Everyone sitting outside your enthusiasm is palpable. Let me tell you. Ladies and gentlemen there's been an awful lot of lobster ours out there today. Sons out outguns out. We're right next to silverstein cuddling. I'm standing in for ariana bravo who's a regular host. She's in the f. M. broadcast bubble this weekend therefore unable to join us on site and now obviously the big story of the day here at silverstone was debuted the new sprint qualifying format. Seventeen lap thrash as marcus pie would call it. And there were some clear. Winners and losers lewis. Hamilton may have established himself as the pirelli speed king yesterday. Probably enjoying some sort of rubber is trophy for that and he went fastest in the pre sprint qualifying qualifying as we recalled as we refer to that session but max verstappen nail star sprint and that was that elsewhere. It's easy to take a broad view of who the main winners and losers today. Were fernando alonso. Sebastian veteran kimmy reichman were winners. Losers sergio perez and carlos sites other drivers shuffled around mclaren's gained one place each other the people outside loving mclaren. I can see now for mayo. Teasha that's unusual. Esteban akan three places. Which is pretty good. And kimmy reichen and fans can't breathe a sigh of relief. Because today's result means their hero has not been out qualified by antonio jovi not say joining me to digest this historic event. Our director of digital strategy jess mcfadden. Hi jesse looking. I understand that you've been on a hot lap. Today i did. I was treated very clearly by torelli to a mercedes. Am gt lap around silverstone which was new for me very enjoyable. Who was driving them. Christodoulou ooh yeah. Who was he did exactly as he promised me before. I go on the call and sent it sideways a lot. In order to try and terrify may. But i think it was just so much fun that i kind of forgot to do too much screaming so i feel like. He was a bit disappointed when we jumped out but it was thoroughly enjoyable. How great time. How old is he. Now no clap on him since he was in karting as He's taller than me. So that's a win. I guess him yes. I'd say reasonably size. Probably about foot age. Maybe gonna kill me wrong ricky. It's all gone. He's short easy. Spotting a look sean. Say yeah yeah. Speaking of joining us aside from behind plastic box cashier number three plays eight. it's also sports grand prix edits. Alex tanaka's his wizardry and hello listeners. To the sport podcast yes politics for the sound of my voice. First of all i was this is my voice is not going to do about why. I'm quite muffled because the condition of mike pasta going into to cover the british grand prix. Em things different. I am technically in the bubble so having to maintain that bubble for the recording which means blast explains the bubble is maintained. How successful do we think sprint. qualifying was obviously verstappen versus hamilton. We now see. We watched a little bit. Ted's ted kravitz his post not qualifying notebook earlier and he attempted to put rossborough in a bit of a headlock and say well. He should've would've could've sort of thing and ross as usual. You're going to see is. He basically didn't really answer. The question did he. He he in effect said well if today had been a rice than lewis would have lost it. which missing in and apathetic was kind of a race. Wasn't so yeah. obviously louis. We'll spend the star and that was it. I mean just what what. What did you make of and terms of the spectacle and where it where it leaves the actual feat of achieving pole position which seems to be that the massive hot topic this weekend absolutely and also how he referred to it. They're very much obsessed with how a referring to it i. I don't know if people are making it over complicated or wanna making cases but anyway. I had a ton of typical f. one on approach to sprint racing which meant i was nervously excited completely and utterly hyped to see something new but then in equal measure cynically Prepare to be disappointed and to be honest with you i. The jury is still out in my opinion. I am very much one of those people that i don't want to judge this format based on one outing. Especially around track like silverstone. I think is quite tricky track to really judge a sprint race because as we saw in terms of it being the battle for pole position for the race as soon as for stopping dropped hamilton of d. r. s. It was game over. And there's just no way that hamilton reading could find the answer to that in seventeen laps so in that in that way i think is very much Is it fat. I don't know because the side of me were saying actually what this does allow for lot of the other drivers if they are potentially not so hot so the team is not so hot on a saturday in a usual stage. normal qualifying. They get the second chance to show. Actually maybe where they deserve to be in a more racier position which ultimately personally for me as an fan as i will keep referring to myself. I watch one predominantly four racing and seeing the best races up where they should be performing and going to wheel and providing us with a ton of entertainment so in that respect for the for the front of the field for me maybe it was a bit of a flop but we have a different posta from the qualifying. We saw today which gives us a bit more of a narrative for the rest of the weekend and what we also saw was as we keep seeing in races. This amazing midfield battle that completely changes the order from what we might see over a single lap shootout so i think what we saw today. I'm sure we're going to go into more detail. The micon of top line overview of it. But we did see kind of all or at least most of the areas that we may be concerned about it. Crashes incidents drives maybe not finishing where they ought to But we also saw amazing feats like fernando. Alonso's jump at the beginning which again maybe phenomenal alonso. Could qualify up there on on a normal qualifying setup but it was very exciting to watch. And i think if the weekend has more action in it then fans should be suitably impressed but i will not cold weather. That was a success or not success until we see around a different track. Like a monza where you know the the kind of the the layout and the length of a lap might actually give us more racing. Alex what do you make if sprint qualifying in isolation the race. Because it was a race. We're not gonna going gonna call a sprint. I think. I think i i can see. It's a spring qualifying rakes in introduction of motorsport dot com.

"From otis for dot com and otis magazine. I'm arianna on this is that what is forecast. Wows why do we even start back you. It certainly delivered today with the race. Full of drama and fought break and ending with a very unexpected podium. Sergio perez claimed his fast red bull victory funded by sebastian battle with his first aston martin radium. Pa taking p. Three on a day when neither of the championship contenders scored any points. We saw two big accidents today causing end to racist of launched row and max western both incidents strikingly similar as they suffered from left. Rear tire failures giving rise to questions about those parental tires. The race ended up being incredibly manic. And i think it's safe to say that none of us could have predicted how today played out. And i'm joined by jonathan noble might spoil dot com f. one editor and jess mcfadden director of district strachey for export network. Thank you for joining may. Now before we get into the race recap. Let's kick straight off with your ratings jess. Yeah it's always. It's always hard to go straight into a rating the race like best because the so much unpack and where we get insane. Events happening then. Don't want to just go based on the sensationalism of big crashes and things. You wanna go a little bit more and go. Actually how good. This was this race as a race and those a lot of talk right at the beginning of the fact that when hamilton's got the lead over leclerc that it was going to be really boring and kind of like a management set procession to the to the line but us no week goal so there was a lot going on and see we did have the instance that we had a much. I think i'm going to give it an eight point. Five ten k. I think it was. I think it was. I think it was good. But i think without without the taya complications it could have been a little bit more of a straightforward rice even though themes the first initial pitstops were interesting and we had lots of things going on and it kind of it was starting to settle until we had launched stroz blow out and all it all changed totally changed. But i guess that's the nature of back like we know this stuff can happen backer but until that point it was kind of going into a bit below for me and then it it kicked off so i wanted to kind of like could come out and just ten because i'm still living on a high right now of everything that's happened but i think having gone away and had think about it i'm going to give it a solid eight point five not still strong gusts very strong john a you on the same wavelength of the difficulty of giving ratings like this. Is you have a sensation race. Then the next race is better than if you give one more point. Then you end up giving five races down the road you have to give thirteen points out of ten for some. So you quite gas. And i'd love to have to give thirty now. Tend to some races. Quite carefully awarding high points. I think we've out the without the verstappen tire. Blowout and without the louis instant would have been a much less spectacular race Body was it was good quite rarely. Do you get an opening phase to race where No one's able to break away basically the unpredictability of the undercover the over the strongest. And then obviously the red flag drama fat So good but there were equally a phase where it looks like it's going to be a straightforward ripple one two with louis third vet'll forfeit ghastly fifth. So it wasn't. It wasn't building up took a chandelier. We had in bahrain for example where the race was coming alive and really uncertain could go either way and if you re run it you wouldn't be sure what would happen side I've not sure if eight point five but it's more than more than a seven do important. Five's we'll do. I feel like you should be allowed. Maybe i'll give it seven point five just because if if it'd been a class of battle potentially between the leaders say peres max louis. They were fighting more for the win down. Think you'd elevator into the layer of eights. So i'm going seven point five. I am quite easy. Pleased if they even raise his monaco. I quite enjoyed so lost. People activated it so my my bar is quite quite low. Can you bought your bars quite and yet you're gonna give seven point four the low-powered i'm quite heart of master. Say about you arianna. Did you give it right. So i'm i'm going to go in the middle of uta. I'm gonna say an eight. Because i agree. I think the the drama of it definitely elevated it and allowed the race to unravel away. It did but had not been for those fake instance. I think we wouldn't have actually seen much more as you guys have said so. I'm going to go in the middle for eight. I think it was super exciting. Really really exciting. And i cannot predict it on wrapping like that. Atl which i know from a race. And i love back. Yeah definitely a little bit by staff but for anyone who may have missed the race all might just want to relive the How exactly did it go down. While off the line charlotte i held onto the lead but on lap three to pass the ferrari to take the lead and before long bike ride bose also made their way to the class who dropped back to fourth. Hamilton was the fastest three to pit on lap. Thirteen how briefly as gazi was let past.
