"It might drive did Zack tops it to what I want but you know it's good faith that I won't crash it. And that's what he's done and it's not to say George Russell isn't capable of that, but 16 seasons of experience Hamilton brings that vast skill set that vast knowledge and so he has said in subsequent interviews that second place in the constructors good for the team third or fourth in the championship to be honest I don't really care. So that's fine if he's admitting that that's fine and that talent is what we're seeing as soon as world title or regular race wins wasn't accessible. Then he'll take the hit and that's fine and I think in the long run okay he did suffer with that narrative of everyone saying George Russell is better but it will help that working relationship and that means that when the team may be next season the season after in a position with a stronger car to fight for world titles, that means if Russell's had that bedrock of stability and not chasing radical setups, then he can be the better partner in crime to get Mercedes back winning constructors championships and then they'll talk the driver's title is out between themselves. Well, of course, Lewis did go on a bit of a social media silence as I think many people probably should do actually occasionally over Christmas and new year. And that made lots of people question. Is he leaving the sport? Is he going away? As he points out in this interview, he was with his family. And in the past, he would have, as you said at the beginning, gone away and done so called showbiz things on for an Instagram picture or a picture of his big red jet and this time he talks about how he was building snowmen with his nieces and nephews. And again, in this interview, he really opens up in a way that I haven't seen in a long time and it was so lovely to read. It reminds you that these guys are human and that sometimes I think we forget that over the years with the dominance, for instance, in the Sebastian Vettel era and would do anything to win multi 21. He was a winning machine. As time goes on, to Sebastian Vettel, why are you leaving Formula One? And he's like, I'm a dad. I just want to be with my family. And it reminds you that these idols we have are human, but they don't talk about that at the time. Let's talk about his future, though, because he does talk about this in the interview. How is Lewis now talking about his future? He's absolutely going to stick around, so on the eve of the Bahrain race, Max Verstappen signed his mega deal with Red Bull until 2028, and it was put to Hamilton that you'll be in your mid 40s by then, and he said, absent not sticking around it's not sticking around for that long, no plans by sort of thing. And then we've got to Monza and it's now looking like Daniel Ricciardo's been paid out of his contract. He's not going to go to Hass. He's not going to go to Williams, but he might take a Mercedes third driver role. And it was probably unrealistic even then, but the logical chain of events to suppose was that right, Hamilton's contracts up at the end of 2023, maybe Ricardo gets that drive for a year and relaunches his career. And then Hamilton stances soften and said, nope, I feel fitter and stronger than ever. Sorry, Daniel, but you're not having my job. And now he's talking about, you know, obviously, obviously Mercedes are going to want to keep him and renew talks. But he's talking, you know, regardless of what they think. He said, no, I'm at the negotiating table. Now, over the winter, we'll get something else done, which is one is really nice to hear, but it's also a bold call, I think, because you see the extent of Mercedes problems in 2022 and how far they are behind Red Bull. Sorry to play down next year as well, but I don't think that is a gap that one winter. Resolves entirely. So Hamilton's already committing his future before saying how 2023 transpires. It might be a more conservative small C but more logical to wait until let's say round 8 of next season see what's the deficit now? Is Mercedes? Have we at least gained two tenths on Red Bull? Are we going in the right direction? But the Hamilton to come out so emphatically in terms of stick around is massive actually. Well, he says it as repaying faith in in Mercedes for when I stuck with him through some rubbish that was printed in the press and him getting expelled at school. I would argue that 8 constructors titles and 7 or what's he got a 6 driver's titles with him is probably already repaid that face. The wider the wider point I think and this is very difficult to access, but it's something I think you have to ask Sebastian Vettel as well and Lewis Hamilton is when they are such sort of figureheads. So with Vettel, it's advocate obviously against the climate crisis with Hamilton. It's better representation and diversity. They have that platform F one Vettel Vettel is a hero, but I think when he retires, it will be a lot harder for him to get his message out, depending on depending on how he does because he'll lose a certain proportion of his audience. And well Hamilton, I'm absolutely convinced he can go and make a proper guy a bit with what he recently invested in the Denver Broncos and he has other business interests and that I'm sure can be his full-time job and he would get immense pleasure from that and be successful at them. I think where he is now still motivated by the Atwood title, still feeling is that his peak, loving, so he says F one, although I imagine that's driving a car riding with politicking going on at the minute. He can still do that while being the figurehead for diversity, inclusion, wow, supporting the Mercedes initiatives to diversify their workforce. He can do that all while he's still racing at the front of F one, so I think when you have that platform and yes, he has a bigger social media following so he quits F one and still has the followers, the money, the opportunity, the recognition, the fame to go and achieve anything outside. I think for now, while he's at his peak, he's not doing a Ronaldo and slumping quite visibly. He would know that now it's probably not his time to go. I think he can achieve everything he wants to and race in F one if that makes sense, Martin. It's not, he's not picking between, I think he can do it all, which is why he's come out so emphatically. Let me ask one final question. Why is having Lewis Hamilton around good for the actual sport of Formula One? Well, you've got the main headlines that it keeps it 7 time world champion and most decorated guy and also the person with the biggest and I would mentioned in his podcast, but the biggest following on social media. So there's that big audience. There's also it's great to have a such a high profile black sports person and that is good for F one as well, how they interact with Hamilton and without Hamilton. There's no way F one would be quite so visible with its own diverse and inclusion programs. And also I think there's a bigger narrative and I don't just mean that because he's working on a film with Brad Pitt or Netflix, but if Mercedes does get it right and there is a sequel to 2021 where Verstappen and Hamilton are going together. That is a story that we all want to see. And so having Hamilton, it wouldn't be the same if it's sort of Russell picking up the button to take down Verstappen. If it's Hamilton, then that is absolutely blockbuster and it's, you know, a good endorsement of where F one is at, that Hamilton

"A position to potentially challenge for a victory in the United States and Mexico that says how badly things have gone wrong and as you say Hamilton he obviously he's not an unappreciative guy. You don't it's not a coincidence or a fluke that Mercedes have won 8 construction championships in a row and you appreciate the work they've done but he says he has changed his role for this year. He's had to become a better teammate, not strictly where George Russell was concerned about a part of this sort of wider organization. So that does mean more visits to brackley, partly so he can be in more debriefs to understand what's going on. But I expect and he doesn't say this, but I expect there's that sort of intangible element of your working in a design department or whatever and you see Lewis Hamilton worked through the office like right. He's in with us, you know, we know what this is all about and he's a bit more, you know, it's hard to call him detached, but you know what it's like. I suppose Martin even when we're in a richer end office and it's always good to see our colleagues and stuff because you realize what we're doing it for because it's easy to get lost when everyone's traveling and everyone's behind a screen or whatever it sort of galvanizes you a bit. So I think having Lewis Hamilton there it's been a two way street. He's realized that the hours going and he talks about in the interview. I don't want to regurgitate it 'cause obviously you should go and spend your harder money and buy the interview or read it online is that you know he says, well guys, have you taken a break because I saw you at the track? Last night and I've had a lion or whatever potentially but you've been here, they tell me since 6 a.m. are you okay? Have you had but so I think that two way street of appreciation and also the understanding that yeah they're the best minds and business, but they don't always get it right and that reveals the extent of how badly really the W 13 went. There's not only did it come out of the box badly. But they're getting upgrades and not only is it when it's projecting or the world of data is telling us we're going to get three tenths a lot from this upgrade. Not only does it then make them attempt to develop slower, but it hasn't cured basic pulsing problem that they're trying to get around in the first place. I think the Mercedes crew they got a nice bonus each and every one of them for winning the constructors championship last year, but they all felt agreed by the rules. They all felt aggrieved that their dare guy Hamilton didn't win it. So to go through that strain, then if you're paying any attention to social media, the toxicity that came after Abu Dhabi. And then find that at this new era, your car's not nap, but needs so much work done. The mental and physical strain is enormous. That's a really good, a really good point to take a pause. We'll come back and talk about his teammate battles over the years and particularly this year. And how he talks very openly about adversity in this auto sport interview. Stick around. I welcome back to the podcast and we're here with Matt Q talking about the front cover of this week's autosport magazine and also online, a very open and honest interview with Lewis Hamilton much more than I've read in a very, very long time. And that's why I wanted to get you on the show to discuss more about it earlier in the year. George Russell was outscoring him, which led to a lot of external people saying that Lewis was getting slow that he couldn't win unless it was in a great car. You touched on it as the year went on as you were learning more about it on the Sunday Night podcasts. We do math. But he talks very openly in this interview about what was really happening in the background there about welcoming George into the team and not wanting to put George in a position of having to go toe to toe with engineers that he doesn't have a relationship with, whereas Lewis can be very Frank with someone like Andrew shovlin because they've got those years and years of bond and trust. And if they don't see eye to eye, you know, you can have an argument or have a disagreement or a fallout over something and then at the end of the day, close the book, walk out of that debrief room and you're still good mates. How does he talk about how George came into the team and then how Lewis really had to take one for the team in terms of all that hate that he took of driving a slower car. But what was really happening in the background? Yeah, I think it's something that everyone really has to hold their hands up and say there was certainly a narrative towards the start of the season when Russell, I think he made it to the British Grand Prix and that first up shunt with Joe. Until he didn't record a top 5 finish, a massive run of consistency in the early part of the season. Hamilton wasn't doing that. And there was this narrative and I think it was Jackie Stewart saying sir Jackie Stewart saying the press that he should retire. Now I firmly believe those quotes were taken out of context and why a mainstream publication is calling up an oxygen error and asking him putting him in a corner and ask him about Hamilton, I don't think is entirely fair. So I take those with a pinch of salt, but there was certainly a narrative that not that Hamilton had lost it, but God, Russell was good and, you know, student has become the master already, but you know, Hamilton's obvious goal is yeats world title. And it's pretty it was pretty apparent fairly early on that this car in this guy's against Red Bull and even Ferrari at that point wasn't going to give it to him. So then as you take a step back and you look at the bigger picture and it's like, right, how do we get there because I want this 8 title definitively number one in the record books. And that is to improve the car as much as possible. And so Hamilton recognized his teammate is comparatively an experienced F one and obviously brand new at the team. So it goes right, I've got 16 years worth of experience in F one. I can troubleshoot this car. And as you say, I can have the arguments constructive arguments with the engineers. If you think of Max Verstappen, how many times does he get so irate with his race engineer? And then Sean barzi sorry. When people go, oh, max you sounded really angry. He says, no, no, that's just a working relationship we have. We have that mutual respect. I know that I can vent and then and then got on with the job and it's all smiles and hugs after it. That's what Hamilton has been able to establish as well. He's much more comfortable. You know, you think about toto wolf in him next season, it will be their tenth anniversary of working together in the same team, and that rapport that relationship allows you to be hot headed or take people to task. And that's not to say that Andrew shoveling or Mike Elliott or whoever the crack designers have been neglectful, but Hamilton is able to go in depth with them, I suppose, and be a bit more bullish. And again, just by virtue of having that experience and Russell being new, it's Hamilton, it's gone right. We've got porpoising because the back end is jumping up and down, and that's because either the aeros attaching or stalling or it's a ride height. So in FP one, you set me as high as I can go and I'll manage that I will not bend this car in a cost cup era. I will not damage it, whatever. And then in the next session we'll run it slammed into the ground and then we'll have the two extremes and see where we go from that and you

"This is the auto sport podcast. You're stuck with me for quite a bit longer. Those are the words of Lewis Hamilton. From an interview that we did with him recently that was vulnerable that was open honest. Talk more about the problems that Mercedes and he personally have faced over the last 12 months than I've ever read before. So today, we're going to dig into that. So the headline on the front cover of this week's autosport magazine as well now listeners who are subscribers will have had that through their letterbox yesterday or today. I'm pretty sure many people who just pick up the magazine as and when if you walk past the magazine racks and you'll see a big picture of Lewis, that's the interview that we're talking about today. He opens up very rare open interview about the challenges and even his Formula One future. On the podcast today, we'll find out where and when it happened and who from autosport did that interview. Why he hasn't had enough of Formula One yet, and why? Now, was the time to do this interview with journalists. The scab to speed with lots of sports Matt Q Matt, welcome back to the podcast. We're recording this just before a busy Brazil weekends. But that's not you done for traveling, right? You're going to be traveling next weekend. Yeah, straight to Abu Dhabi. So it's a good run now, a couple of races to finish the season. And what we've got, we've got season reviews, top 50 drivers to write a couple of sort of debriefs on how this season went well or badly for some teams and drivers, and then even looking forward to 2023 all before Christmas. So easy time of it, but looking forward to it. I mean, this is the first time in a number of years I've covered in inverted commas a conventional championship. I've been on formulary for a past few years and will not run obviously from the winter until sort of midsummer, whereas now the Formula One kind of fits into the calendar year. It's made me realize how terrifyingly fast 2022 has got. I'm sure for as long as I cover it by years are going to flash by, but there you go. And so let's talk a little bit about that front cover then of auto sport, magazine. And get into it with you. You've been in the Formula One paddock this year. You will be next weekend as we wave goodbye to 2022. Where was that interview conducted? What was the setting? It wasn't me that represented auto sport in the interview. It was our much more respected in a paddock colleague John noble, which is why you got some great answers from Lewis, and it was conducted in the United States Austin, despite the explosion of social media, tabloid press, whatever it was, it was a real nitty Gritty nerdy motor sport press that got that big scoop. Well, I begin with some lazy characterization and you can feel free to shoot me down. Lewis Hamilton doesn't waste his words. So when he speaks, it's often to the point, but at times he can come across in the written word. If you just read what he says, as lofty over the years, that didn't necessarily help some fans bond with him in an era when the sound bite rules, you just print a quick quote on a website or something that he's said, fans often like celebrities because on social media there, almost one of us or you follow their journey through their highs and lows and there was Lewis recording studios on his private jet, which of course has now gone, but how do you think he is in terms of this interview and in terms of how he's opening up now that he's not the current world champion and that he's not even defending a title anymore that max is a double world champion. It's rare for Hamilton to be sort of totally this accessible and it exposed this is not to downplay any drivers intellect or whatever, but this isn't a TV interview, potentially where you have to send the press officer, the questions in advance of their driver can be prepped. This was Hamilton leaving himself vulnerable, come what may, and also I think Hamilton isn't a Lando Norris at live streams racing exploratory gaming exports, whatever give me a bit naive to that sort of thing. He's not doing too many TV interviews. He's not on question or sport. He's not on TikTok and I'm only 26, but I'm making myself sound all by my inability to grasp these concepts. But what I'm saying is quite inaccessible. So to get those, you know, that half hour 45 minute period where, you know, he's speaking directly to the press, with no ulterior motive, no book to plug. I think that's a really rare opportunity. And it's a really introspective interview, actually. Like you say, Hamilton isn't always that forthcoming. And he's known longer than most people that to get the best out of himself. He needs to be not doing F one things when he doesn't have to. So we'll go into a bit more that yes, he has spent a hell of a lot more time at broccoli this season because Mercedes has been struggling. During the winter, you're right. He's a recording studio between races even. He's touring a Grand Canyon or hiring a table at the New York Fashion Week to Met Gala, and that's the one I was looking for. He's there. He's not pounding round in a simulator. He's not doing all the press guff really. Another bit that listens might not know is that I wouldn't say he's not forthcoming, but certainly it's rare to get him this candid, I suppose, interesting. Well, he opened up in a way that I've not heard actually in a long time. And one of those things that he talked about now it's the end of the season now that we know that between him and George Russell are going to finish fourth and 5th in what order we don't know, but Mercedes are probably a little far behind Ferrari unless Ferrari do a sort of a DNF implosion in the last two races. It will probably finish the way it is. And I think that for the first time, Lewis Hamilton opened up in a way that I've never heard him do about the car and the struggles and we all saw at the second test we also like, wow, look at those side pods. This is going to be I presumed they've just discovered something nobody else has. It's going to be brutally fast and then, of course, the results were kind of okay at the beginning of the year. Despite the car, for reasons of Red Bull, DNFs and things like that. And so circumstance favored them. But he really opens up in this interview about how the car wasn't good enough. Can you tell me a little bit more about that? Yeah, well I think Hamilton is included in this, but when everyone rocked up to pre season testing and you just sort of took for granted that all right, what we'll do is we'll watch a Merck around this corner and we'll see how that looks and then that's a benchmarking. And if the red ball looks better than that, then they've got a brilliant car, and if the dial from ale looks worse than that, they've got a not so good car. And obviously that is how it played out eventually in terms of competitive order, but I think it was obvious that Barcelona is something was fundamentally wrong. Everyone was apart from sort of McLaren was suffering really from this purpose and phenomenon that came. But Mercedes was so extreme. And then it's actually now we have been sort of looking at season review stuff. If you think about how the season was going, so there was in a Spanish Grand Prix, famously leclerc's engine blows Verstappen spins and winds, but Hamilton has that first up collision with Kevin Magnussen is coming back through the grid showing good pace in toto wolf is talking about then add another day we win this race and you think we wind on what are we 15 rounds later and it's only in the past couple of Grand Prix that they've got themselves into a position to potentially challenge for a victory in the United States and Mexico that says how badly things have gone wrong and as you say Hamilton he obviously he's not an unappreciative

"Attache Bradley lord had got the hand, got the chance to slap a gagging order on him. And so he'd say something. And I think basically going to going to Helmut mark out is route one when you need a controversial quote, and it's something that the Austrian media do, and then the other, the other media, pick up those quotes. Obviously it gets fed through the German and his Austrian accent probably confuses a few syllables, and it comes out even more fiery than it was intended, because very often when something is translated, some of the nuance gets lost, doesn't it? So it's a difficult thing in the media landscape at the moment where so much news is quite driven, and it's the actual words rather than the sense in which it's spoken. But I suppose we're digressing now because as F one media, we have to keep the news machine running 24/7 and Grand Prix is only happen every few weeks or every week if it's a triple header. Or you can look at what's published in other magazines. On this month, on the cover of GP racing this month, we contemplate Lewis Hamilton and not just the fascinating pink ensemble he wore for the cover shoot of a recent issue of Vanity Fair. He kind of looked like the second coming of Don Johnson in Miami Vice and that high waisted short sleeve garb. Fantastic only Lewis can carry that off. But it was a very interesting interview and months and months ago as it turned out while the interview for this Vanity Fair piece were happening. I approached our regular correspondent Andrew Benson and said, is it too early to drop several thousand metric gallons of cold water on the theory that Lewis is a spent force and about to retire? At the time, he said, well, actually, it's kind of a little bit tricky to work out because there's mixed messages coming from the, from the Hamilton camp, but at the same time, the narrative that he's being absolutely tonked by George Russell is wrong. And this is around the time of the Miami Grand Prix we were having this conversation right about the time when the tabloid press were at fever pitch saying Lewis had it, he should cash in his P 45 now and take his private plane off somewhere and make way for someone else. So finally, am I to persuade Andrew that he had got enough data to write this analysis of where Lewis Hamilton is now. And he's come up with what not to bang my own drummers, the man who commissioned him to write it, but I thought it really, really good story. Has taken apart Lewis season and analyzed the early season wobble that's related to last season's controversy. It's deconstructed the whole business of whether he's firing an oil cylinders, clearly he is. And also, we look at how Mercedes has now come to rely on his unique skill set to restore them to the front of the grid because this is a team which is struggling with its car and not only that. They are finding that they've lost correlation with all their tools. So what's now needed is a driver with Lewis's experience and speed to be able to feed back to them and say, no, this is working. That's not working. Let's try this. Let's do that. This is the way forward. And they're doing things like putting a floor on the car, which hasn't been tested in the wind tunnel, but relies on his backside to sign it off. And I think that is quite fascinating. I wouldn't normally read a sentence there, but I love that the point where Andrew talks about Lewis is a man whose worldview is one of perpetual struggle. It's what he feeds off and it's what motivates him. And I think that's so true. And he, in fact, the opportunity to work with him and I mean, he will happily talk about what motivates him in life and how as a child. He failed to face a lot of obstacles, you know, being bullied at school and then some of the racism that he faced in cartoon and the aftermath of Abu Dhabi and then Lewis going away taking that winter after coming off social media, which of course of itself then raised lots of questions. Why has he come off social media? Why is he not giving us a narrative? What does he thinking? Is he going to retire all that kind of stuff? Then coming back only to discover that Mercedes Benz have a car that's uncompetitive. And I've got some fundamental problems. But actually, rather, he's not a quitter. You know, he's a fighter. He likes to come back and fight. And the team know the strengths that he has on that front. And you have to say, you know, they've done an admirable job, considering where they were at the beginning of the year. Operationally, they're kind of their execution at race weekends is better than Ferrari. And only the other day I was somebody who was asking me about Red Bull and the championship. And I said, actually, the thing that's fascinating to me is what happens for a second place in the constructors because if Ferrari continued to trip up and God forbid, have any more reliability issues, et cetera, I think George Russell and Lewis Hamilton will enjoy vanquishing them and so there's actually a huge motivation there and total, as I said earlier on, massively committed individual, and he knows it and Lewis has a fellow fighter. I think the George Russell comparison is really interesting. I was very struck by the performance differential. You know, Lewis had qualifying George not by a huge huge huge amount in terms of race and the number of races that I qualified, but the margin, you know, set 57,000th of a second on average. I mean, that's not too tense. 57,000 of a second is basically little to choose between them. It's incredibly impressive in terms of both Lewis and George because Andre says in the article, you know, George is in the first flush of being with CNN Mercedes and the enjoyment that he's getting out of that. You know, a bad Mercedes is a lot better than a good Williams. So he's enjoying every element of it. But I think it's a really interesting piece. I think the whole point about the discussion around Lewis is for me also

"You enjoy what you are about to listen to over the next 60 or so minutes, then search for us on flat chat with codders and like and subscribe, smash that like button. It's various idiots on YouTube today. And as the latest issue of GP racing magazine arrives on the newsstands, we look at why the Porsche Red Bull marriage is off before it was even on a news story months in the making. Meanwhile, on the cover we have Lewis Hamilton written off by some pundits as a spent force who ought to retire. He says he's going to prove them all wrong. And Mercedes is counting on him to do just that. Joining me to ponder a nonexistent mergers and retirements are life from gateshead, it's auto sports Matt Q hello cutters, hopefully at this stage of my career, I'm nowhere near retirement and as far as I'm aware, no merges on the horizon, so just simple, unadulterated Mac for you. Very good. Well, hopefully you're about to merge with a BMW 2002 in a week or so time. Tittering at the other end of a line is Mark Gallagher. Welcome Mark. Thank you very much. Good to be here. I'm not going to mention retirement. This is getting dangerously close. Some people never retire that idea. Well, I'm hoping not to completely retire. But once you hit the big 6 O, it starts to back in. We, in our office, we have the joy of the ageless and boundlessly enthusiastic Tony Tobias. Various sales related to the auto sport international show and I actually quite sure how old Tony is, but he's nowhere near contemplating retirement. And he's so enthusiastic constantly. We've just had the funeral of someone who kept going. Well into her 90s and worked right up until two days before being a mortality cold. Indeed, I do have that you came up with I suppose some people might say a massively obvious stat but one I actually hadn't considered on the Twitter the other day, which was that only one Formula One World Champion kind of completed their entire record before she was the reigning monarch, which just that sort of underlines that amazingly long run. Yeah, that tweet took a bit of a three days to compile because every previous version of it begged the question. Someone was going to go. But Fangio, Fangio and 51 and so I had to come up with their entire world championship record completed under Queen Elizabeth so yeah, so Nina farina and that was it. But it actually kind of makes you think that it was kind of good perspective. I wonder what she an autosport subscriber for the entire time. I'm not sure that back house was on the free list. And actually when we went to the first Grand Prix, didn't they? I mean, she didn't go to the first business in her parents, but it's a sort of a popular misconception that's grown up because of misreading of the caption of the images because it says king George let me get my Georgia seat. George VI. King George VI of Queen Elizabeth appear at the inaugural world championship Grand Prix at Silverstone in 1950, across that Queen Elizabeth more lastly known to us as the queen mother who left us 20 years ago. Queen Elizabeth II, as she was not yet then, was pregnant and definitely not going to be attending motor racing events with loudoun. I didn't realize I didn't realize you were the water sport network's royal correspondent as well as everything. The Nicholas witchell just call me Nicholas witchell. You promised never to call you Nicholas witchel college. Let's revert back in the words of a former colleague to the actual subject. Let's try and unpack the Porsche madness, which happened just before this issue of GP racing went to the printers. Fortunately not as we were hitting Apple P unlike last month's seismic news. What a strange thing this was. This was supposed to be not just an engine supply deal, but a partial acquisition of Red Bull Racing, and the due diligence had been done, all the legal boxes ticked, and it was just a question of when the 2026 engine reg refined that they would then, they would then tada as various irritating PR types using a sort of a not just a noun as a verb, but a ridiculous noise is a verb. Unfortunately, those engine regs were delays and second thoughts set in. So Mark, you've been in the engine trade, you've had dealings with corporates. Surely it's never a good idea to give people too long to moll the consequences of a deal, buy a stroke seller's remorse can set in and scupper it. It's interesting when you look at the fact that it was all looking to was moving in the right direction and then all of a sudden there was that gap and then it kind of fell apart. But actually it kind of feels that maybe both parties have had a near miss there, which they may well come to appreciate because quite often there's a haste to getting deals done and then you sign up to everything and then you find out afterwards that it wasn't quite the way that you wanted it to be. And I was kind of really thinking about the fact that when BMW and Williamson there a deal and that looked on paper like it was going to be just going to be a great partnership and it began to fall apart and the beyond of fall apart because of power play between Munich and grove and in the end BMW just they were often and over to sabre to do their deal over there. And I think the prospect of Porsche and Red Bull going the same way where you could too heavyweights come in together and unable to find a structure that works for both of them Porsche putting their brand into Formula One. It's such a massive statement. They don't really want to be playing second fiddle to Red Bull, and in equally Red Bull don't well, they don't need Porsche. I mean, this is the thing which really became evident. I suppose was that it's a nice if it's a deal that can be done. It would be great, and obviously there's lots of benefits to that, but Red Bull don't need the money. I mean, that's a thing the Red Bull Racing don't need the money. I'm sure there's a welcomed it, you know? It's more profitability and great potential there in terms of the two dare I mention the brand where the two brands working together Red Bull and Porsche you can imagine they can start taking a whole bunch of things together. They'd be synergies. There's a lot of synergy, huge medicine and are we going to see how many times you can get the word synergy into the podcast. Helmut Marko and Christian Horner could not be more relaxed about the fact that this deal has not moved forward. That completely relaxed about it. There is no sense that Red Bull were in the last chance to learn trying to do a deal with Porsche because what helmet 79 Dietrich Madison 78. I mean, it was some people thought, oh, this would be like the stepping stone Red Bull into porridge portion by the team or by half the team and then take it over. And actually the opposite has proven to be the case. Red Bull are in no rush to go anywhere. They've got their powertrain division. They have high degree of confidence over that. Hamlet Markle seems to think that they have at least one manufacturer and I don't think it will take a rocket scientist to work out who that is.

"lewis hamilton" Discussed on Box of Neutrals

"The championship is up for debate, whether Mercedes can do it, whether Russell can do it 'cause he's not that far off in terms of points, Louis is much further back, but I mean, it is also Lewis Hamilton, his pace is pretty good this weekend. But regardless of whether or not they're going to contend for the title, if even in next race or a couple of races time, the day start winning races. Then that really complicates the championship picture for Verstappen and leclerc and for Ferrari and Red Bull because it's, I mean, I can't even remember the last time we had a genuine three way front running battle consistently. The way to approach that is completely different. We are we are down one race and obviously some of the headlines this week where we won't have a record breaking 23 race season where you get 22, but there is still loads of racists to come loads of points to come. Mercedes though really needs to make up still a bit of ground, but then also clawback. Quite a distance to reclaim the lead of the championship. They're also going to have to do that. With your address and not Lewis Hamilton Lewis Hamilton will then have to play the wingman role. George Russell, I just don't even know that he has that in his DNA to do that. It's just not cool to him. I mean, he won't even take out a ring to drive him to college and support his teammate and give up a win if that's what's on the cards. I think Russell would really need to be very, very close. If not leading the championship and Hamilton would have to be completely out of contention for him to even do that. So there's a lot that has to go right. I'm not saying it's impossible. But that's sort of in brackets. I'm saying it's a bit impossible. I just don't even see it. I think Mercedes would be lucky to win a few races here and there. I'm not considering them in serious contention at the moment. Fair enough. I mean, they're on the separate battle now, aren't they? You know, they spent the first 6 races, and still more to come. Let's not forget because this is one track they've been good at, and it's an important track to be good at because it's an all rounder, but they still have to prove that the form is repeatable, and I can't help but wonder, Monaco is such an outlier, but and so by that token, if they don't perform with Monaco, then it doesn't really necessarily mean anything. But it would be a bit of a dent to morale after having a great weekend. And then, I mean, we still have two slightly unusual tracks after that coming up Azerbaijan is very weird. Canada is a bit more normal, but super high speed and then we start to get into a couple more familiar tracks. Yeah. So it is difficult to know how good they are, but they seem confident, don't they? You know, there was a definite shift this weekend that it feels like they kind of know what's going on. The porpoise thing is happening less and the car is lowered the ground and all that kind of stuff and Lewis Hamilton even smiled a couple of times. He's very unusual. And one of them was even about the prospect of buying that photo or Valtteri Bottas skinny dipping in the Lake. Oh boy. Is it a good thousands of them? And good on him. Ten of them were to me, but still it's all charity, so that's fine. And I like putting them on my windows and getting to know my neighbors a lot better. On the Mercedes though, let's say that let's say that they go would be to win a handful of races, right? And then it's a disrupt and just get as many wings as they can. They're not going to win the championship, but would they, from here, would they settle for completely ruining Red Bull's championship? They would be happy with that. A 100%. Can you imagine that's probably the only thing driving toto will follow at this point. Not for his own benefit, but for the complete destruction of Christian Horner and Red Bull Racing. Because I think that is interesting, I feel like that and it's something we don't really we haven't seen for a long time. I can't remember the last time where you have a team that they've had such a slow start as Mercedes is happy and maybe the slow start will continue for a little while yet. But then when they recover whatever are on the pace, the prospect of Mercedes being an not like not like Red Bull used to be with Mercedes a couple of years ago where, you know, depending on the track, they might be able to win the race here and there they'll be on the podium. Like a genuine three way contest, that puts, I mean, that is a hung championship battle, right? Like that means Mercedes is the balance of power here and they can decide. They can make because if they're strategies are targeted. In this strategy you'll have to be targeted at someone, right? Like they'll have to choose who to take on in a three way battle, whatever. I had to be really interesting. There is a political element to that. That we haven't seen in a straight 5. Do they then disrupt whoever the leading team is? Let's say Red Bull, for example, or do they disrupt whoever's second and go, oh, we're going to disrupt Ferrari, because then we might end up where do the Mercedes preferences go? It's hard to read. It is difficult to know. It's undecided. And I think that's really interesting. I think that's part of the reason why, I mean, look, if I could end up containing for the championship is unlikely that is, I thought it'd also be a great story, which I know is weird to say because if the writing.

"Weber fernando alonzo at the nurburgring and john we there we many memories of that race. I don't nothing stands out in particular from that race. Was i said to kevin before we started today. That lewis hamilton is a career. Where an off. Just an awful lot of brilliant wins the become the norm because they're not go against the grain. He's we know he's a super strong driver. Can qualify the front and perform some pretty lapse in brilliant overtaking moves and brilliant strategy and comes through him wins so sometimes they kind of old merge into each other and i think this is a classic is always came from the back or pulled off an amazing top. Ten overtaken. History was just a classic lewis. Hamilton win that can sometimes get overlooked a little bit. Which is my memory is completely blank owner. it's funny. She say that john because the in the ultimate driver ratings the the line was vintage hamilton. You're absolutely spots on. Yeah the reason. I picked. That one was because he had he had wheel-to-wheel fought through the lonzo and weber. They really were. The three of them had had a pretty much almost race long fight and there had several key we'll moments particularly when one of them was coming out the pits and one of these multiple peretti pitstop erases and in each of those sort of contested. Louis came out and he he he did. He did the moves and he passed lonzo after owns. Oh stop which is we now. He's not an easy thing to do so it was. It was getting the getting the better of to to strong rivals when it was it. Could i think it could probably have gone to any one of the three of them and eat. Well let's move to number seven. Which is one of one of the surprisingly few cave. I must say for hamilton's early career that's in. This list is the caribbean from one. That is. It's a two thousand eight german grand prix at hockenheim which is how much it's twenty-seventh formula one races. Eight victory starting from pole position. And i mean wha- was particularly was illegal different in terms of thinking about to hamilton's early career in terms of how he won these races. I guess this one mainly memorable because it was nelson be junior an not a rival regularly. guy gansler simonson and his former on career. I think i think it stood up. This this is a lewis. Has a brilliant habit of doing is that you can have races where he appears to be in control. Everything's going smoothly. And then an instant will turn on his head. Which in this race was my crash in. The safety car and wiping is lead and then pk peak getting front. But lewis never gets flustered. never kinda throws it away and they circumstance even when he say massively wiped away from him or some it goes against him to keep calm and focused and keeps delivering. And i was absolutely critical here. seeing lead wiped away being on the back foot and having to come through again and a nailing it so another classic lewis win. Yeah even when he's having a run on the radio we've seen it more in the mercedes days of course when he's ranting on the radio all these finished fastest lap you know that sort of thing Yeah he. He has a ramp as john says he doesn't. He still delivers on track. And this is an early instance of the team inadvertently sort of scream really left. Imagine safety car period thinkin. He'd be able to build up enough lead and they got really wrong and dropped him back into the pack and it looked like a race that mclaren had lost but the over to need to overtake philippi mass. Earn a nelson piquet junior. And kinda save. Mclaren's yes say. Some red faces really. If you don't do that would have been a win. They'd have they'd have really thrown away just to protect your point. Alex on on some of the perhaps the early races in his career not being their first of all was trying to get a bit of a spread across different types of race in different areas. But also the ones that come to mind. I've seen on other people's top ten wins lists are food. Gt thousand seven monaco. Two thousand and eight. We both wet weather races. I think one the reasons. I didn't put those in this. Because i think there's a better way where the race that we'll get to later but also food g. ferrari messed up with their ties and penalties and drop to the back. Lonzo crashed the main. Oh and and of course. There's the veteran weber behind the safety car. So he's rivals. Essentially tim sales out on a monarchy in two thousand eight. He biff the wall and okay was fantastic fast. After that he needed a little bit a lot with the weather in the way the strachey panda off that for him to get a win. Back the heat to throw away by putting into the barrier. So if you're doing a top fifteen or twenty. Maybe most dramatic hamilton wins. Then it would be there. But i don't think in terms of pure driving it was it was. It was his best data evans. Dude driver ratings that race. Letty ones in twenty. One definitely wouldn't have a maximum. Wouldn't you can't hit a wall and an end up even if you win to get the maximum score but then we got. Let's move on to number six. Which is really interesting race. Actually is the two thousand nine monaco grand prix sandwich since two hundred thirty fifth racy seventy-seventh winston position. But two things. Really stand out from this. An show your expand on the quite an emotional emotionally charged. We can for formula one infamous as in particular following the death of the he louder but who said the battle of hamilton has with mattress napa. And maybe have you about this. So of shadows wants to come in. Sounds of their rivalry because rebel hadn't been the big problem for mercedes during the recent years of that turbie. It'd been veteran. Ferrari or three teams are in the mix. Twenty nine thousand. But he's so it's not an hounding. Hamilton was on those on the wrong tyres essentially on the on the medium sized to keep it going. And yeah what what's your..

"One hundred wins. I mean he was already at this point. He's the typically the greatest driver of time because he's not shoemaker in terms of window to surpass macs demean seven more times so he's he's the greatest statistically now he's got one hundred he's potentially going to go on to win more championships away resist. Now in the debate of who's the greatest driver against one hundred makes any real difference in that sense. We you know. Hamilton is now. We're close enough to the end of his career. I mean i'm intrigued to john jonah. He could go and build the the next two years. I mean if he were to do that and wish to genuinely be. I ought to fight off the whole generation of leclerc which tappin russell. I mean that would really would be remark on. Surely age will catch up with him eventually. Don't think we really you wouldn't say oh now. He's definitely the greatest now he's got to one hundred. I don't think it's yeah. It's all about context all the things we've been talking about. Yeah that was that period at mclaren where yeah. He was beaten by button. Did lose township to ross burger these. These factual ways be there. I think we've talked about talked about before. What could he possibly do on track to somehow. Increase the position. Ease ordine which let's face it. He's in in the top. Three great steph draws of all time. What could eat to lift up. The only thing i can really think equipments as and went to ferrari went going to win a chance. You know lawns. I didn't do it. Veteran didn't do it. And i'm processed in des back in the day. If he went there went wrong. Win chance you with ferrari. Then i mean that really would be remarkable but he. He would be crazy to do that at this point in his career. And that's i think that's very likely so. He's he's in. He's in the debate of the boils down to what your criteria looking we could do until i pulled cast on who the greatest race driving. Well yes but. I don't think the you don't think the the that into one hundred and eight. Th world title seven eight nine makes a huge amount of difference is more about the the context that those successes scored in reading it as it is and while i'm going to remain sitting on the fence air in terms of giving an opinion on his grace woman who drove d think another interesting element is half drivers changed were they have they done in terms of that. He's not even look at jackie stewart and all the safety that he promoted and he achieve wonderful. Extra element is the identity debate on lewis aside. He's driving this force for change in multiple to improve things that people have been underrepresented him. And i think that's a a big consideration when you think about the greatest defined terms how defined as a chat for another cost. Let's go onto your top ten listed on again. Vive you spent many an evening considering lewis hamilton's Well let's face. It was nine thousand nine up until up until saatchi which isn't which isn't in that turning twenty twenty one rushing groundbreaking to give out the Beginning right to the first one at number ten which the twenty thirteen hungarian grand prix. And that's how much is one hundred and twentieth formula. One races twenty-second victory base. First mercedes and john. I'm gonna come to you. Have you any particular memories of that day. The hungarian i imagine it was quite hot at the hungarian in july. The body memory of that time was more the political background to all nine lead that it was lewis his first win but it was the year of the famous mercedes secret test. In barcelona's this has been a real ongoing political battle. Between this was the point mercedes have become a serious threat to the teams so that run this test after spanish grand prix with nick owen. Lewis is a test. Ripe food peretti's tara test and so they've run this test after grand prix drivers in black helmets so although they claim there there was no reasons. Keepdriving secret so big political thing they got were cleared of a major rules breach. There was an f. i. Hearing and they agree to not run a young driver test but the belief was that this tested had allowed mercedes to better understand the huge tide degradation problems that had because it had races where the car was quick but couldn't tires and was mashing the tires hungary was nicer pricey lewis on pole position as such but you. It was no way in the heat of hungary. That car is going. Be able to look after its tires and manage it and this was the day it turned is the day he he did it. He nailed it key. Was that that move on. Jenson button after pitstops which got in through so that was the the arrival there was not only the lewis win for mercedes but confirmation about this kind of the background that secret tests and he just sense that the momentum is covering this team was becoming a major force and wise that made the list once the in at number ten john zarrella very well. They looked after the ties when even he didn't expect her thing after giving his comments to qualifying he now the that the overtakes on on panama web when he needed to and also like to look at what. What their teammate seducing when. I'm doing these races. And eka rosberg was battling for ninth. When he's engine let go and his best and that was almost harvesting slow than hamilton so especially given the context actually there had some great races. Were quite close. In subsequent years dasa thrashing really so just an error-free looked off the tires over to when you had to thrash teammate. And of course it was a supposedly of autistic license because it is a bit of a milestone. you know he's i he's first mercedes win. Let's come and number nine. Which of the two thousand twelve. Us grand prix at austin. That's someone one hundred ninety. Three one racist twenty-first victory john. You can take your memories of being there. I was thinking. This is the race where ferrari triggered the great penalty from moscow lonzo onto the clean side of the greater. The austin. Now this was this was get first austin's first year so great mega venue and everyone was raising the venue and austin's an amazing city so at forms automatically love with the new home of the american grand prix but the track as we saw in turkey last year. The new track had absolutely zero grip was driving on ice. Put the onus on starting on the clean side of the grid say much say that when fernando alonzo locked in the title at that time and was managed to qualify behind fleet paymaster but on the dirty side of the grid ferrari basically made mass official lemon deliberately open his gearbox penalty to move onto the clean side so a remarkable remarkable moment really indeed in worth thinking about in the context of the rumors that mercedes that done similar. Things voucher brought us. They said they didn't change. Chat change engine because the one that put in it was a big problem with it but kevin is the two thousand twelve. Us go pre illness number nine so sums up one of those rivalries. We talk about the one. We've vetted where normally had the advantage. Because john kerry had an agent new he read and it one of those. Those races opportunistic really. He chased you know once he got up to second and got up behind veteran. There was quite a long period homers behind him. He's not. There's not really a chance. Discovery gordon covered. Yeah he was hanging on in a car that was as quick as the red bull. Not not sure. It was at times during that season. Certainly and then of course veteran just caught nourian kinds. hr not were those. They very slow through. That twisty turned three to seven section. And she's great bear trap but you can't take it just brought hamilton into range and he grabbed the lead so he had one opportunity to win that race and he took it and i think it was a it was one of his sniper winds mclaren poorly produced those amazing stetson hats through the podium podium finishes to wear and we're gonna come onto the number eight now which is the two thousand eleven german grand prix at the nurburgring. That's how much is eight hundred. I i'm going to one race is sixteenth win and kill him is gonna read a line from your your copy here because one of my favorite words in it so this was another swashbuckling races performance. The help time with them. Pete.

"And formula one itself of course being so liberty media. So just how much is hamilton's career encapsulated over that change. The biggest influence of all was the threat of the kind of photo breakaway late. Two thousand ten period when teams are trying to get power and rest rested from eccleston. And there's a chance of them. Winning say echo stein picks them off by offering the big teams extra cash basically so picked them out. So you handed all these constructors Bonuses to ferrari to red bull and mercedes managed to grab it as well which then basically triggered a two-tier formed one because the the best teams at far more money than anybody else split the grid so you had three teams at the front and everyone else. Not only behind bert well behind. I think. I think i'm correcting twenty seventeen in two thousand eighteen only to non mercedes red bull ferrari cars on the podium which was the force indias impact one year land. Stroller ammonia sergio perez. So this was the low point in f ones competitiveness. This thing that liberty media announced trying to roll back so the cost cap coming in to stop the big spenders spending their way to success Better revenue distribution system so The small teams more money. We've got this many era handicap system to have the back teams a little bit. Hope you're 'cause it can race better and we are seeing the grid coming together now. So i think during that era if you weren't in one of those top three teams. You weren't going to get much success. And luckily for lewis. He joined the top three teams and a joined. The team that completely nailed the twenty fourteen engine which was enough to keep them ahead for the first era but at a time when tighter wolf's probably bringing in a new management philosophy into formula one and it pushed hard on the area front and then the team while the engine vantage also built up his knowledge and became very strong on that front as well and it was it was a double combination. Rebel couldn't match all times because they were lacking on the engine front. Despite having renewal board kept going back to silverstein in july. Because we've been planning this podcast ever since then it's been all right. Let's get ready to go because we never know when he's going to hit one hundred wins. Then we've got this. Have this planned dame. We've got to change the magazine hundred page special and he said earlier this week. Connor surprised that it took louis so long. Because it's kind of weird. He's in a very close championship fiber. There's been some. There's been more. One randomness injected along the way to the point where one of the german publications build kept asking how he thought. One hundred win was cursed which is of course. This is ridiculous but he's just interesting to think you know you on the verge that milestone needs. It's it's is taste. this is not coming. Yeah i think if you asked that. The loss g. o. Even the start of this year you as the boys taken as was it taken until september to get it. But i think by silverstone we knew. Didn't we yeah. We we know that the red ball more from the not has a slight pace advantage and hamilton's it be up against maximum poor goodenow operators that. They're they did make that. They had a bad pitstop at monza but normally they are pretty on it. So all things being equal it was gonna take a while. I think what's been breeding about this seasons. We have had a couple of the random winners as well. Which is what you what you would want to good. Champion for. A couple of random winners like autonomic. That's that's fantastic. So now i'm not surprised dopson. It took this long. We weren't quite ready hungry so quite pleased that lonzo actually managed to hold up held sharp enough rock onto because we were that would have made the sunday night. Monday really caught hardware but are by baya by monzer and then see russia. We were a bit more on top of it so yeah no. There's a little bit of a delay is good days office of his back now as well just got back. What you're saying about the different era is also worth mentioning. That lewis has been able to adapt to those different different regulations very well. The top drives away of course. But you know you you mentioned earlier. The bridgestone's or sprint format gone through the different engine. Changing relations all the energy management can after the ties. Which i i think. It's one of the underrated parts of his game. He's had yeah. Now we got sprint qualifying. There's lots of different things. Eight had to adapt to. And he's yeah he just doesn't doesn't seem to be anything really that that catches him out. You can now say that he's become a driver of change with mercedes. Be running black cars. If it wasn't lewis hamilton. I would suggest not so. I think he's now blend with the hamilton commission. He is now in his last year or two. I think he's becoming a driver of change within formula one and then he's east breaking our surprised he was surprised and touched really happy day. Them mercedes we're going to do that. There is some suggestion that they might go back to two silver for two thousand twenty two. Which again. I think he's world visit was what's more important things. We started the ball rolling We committed as a team to to improve when it comes to diversity and changing things you might just as well. John lewis got a new two year contracts coming up with mercedes as we go into the new era in twenty twenty. He's going up against the Highly rated teammate. And george russell raising the specter of could we get another rivalry locked behind With mercedes but then if you know if the rebel continues to be a threat if other teams come back into the mix could be even more exciting than not but how many possibly might lewis go on to get his foreigner winds to win formula. One of the critical point will be whose whose got these twenty one regulations right i think the general consensus in the paddock is for all the all. The liberty media's aims of the cost cap and equal revenue. Sharon closer racing. 'cause will work in the long term. It should bring us a a great this as is right now. Which is why we're changing rules. But i think in the short-term one team is going absolutely nail it and dominate in the first phase of two thousand twenty two. So i think if if mercedes get it right then he could easily a louis in six seven. Eight wins each year so And you could probably. I could see him doing another contract beyond these two. I don't think he'll do these two. And then disappear if if there's if there's a decent amount of success and he feels he's still got it and is invigorated by what russell brings to the team and this this challenge of new drivers coming through then i think he could add twenty thirty more wins title before before the end but i think if if said he got it wrong next year and struggling poor season then he could easily see that tally not getting added very much and then louis decides after two years. Actually i'm an interest in winning a million the success and then he disappears off solving. It'll be an awful lot more or not very many all. There won't be anything in the middle and this the other extra element of willie carry on. His next contract is the he. I'm sure he knows. And most athletes do. They're worth far more in terms of what they can say the messages that they want to promote by being active and successful in in the sports there. And you think about what smashing vets with msg conveyed in hungary with the the lgbt rainbows. T. shirt you think pink blitzer you know. He knows he's going to get more coverage because he's still formula on driver. It's the same with lewis hamilton and promoting diversities.

"Whoa talk so he said well that was enough. I can't i can't do that again. So of course he what goes in retirees so john. What's your impression of how lewis's kept that motivation. Hi how he's kept himself just trying to get better and better because again. When i started team last year. That was something he said. You know that. I i do feel like lamm still getting better as i get older and think about that season he said why are in twenty nine thousand ninety four or five pole positions whereas before i was getting double that so i need to improve when it comes to qualify. Did and that was a key part every time to win last year. See a house cats raising the game. Parviz this brilliant psychological makeup of believing. He's the best in the business but believing that at any point that could get taken away from him if he doesn't work as hard as he needs to. And this paranoia with falling off the cliff and that that performance not being there I thought that again schumacher net flicks firmware current talked about michael having this this winter in norway after the ninety seven championship and just shut off from formula one and then as you return for ninety eight just the doubts about not sure. If i can do this anymore. I need to check if i'm there and i think lewis almost goes through the same thing that there's this uncertainty about his performance. Has he maximized his work. Engineers has he maximizes understanding of ties. Has he maximizes. Caller font formats is race performance all is elements. nothing is that this work ethic. He's got the doesn't rely on his natural talent. He he knows he's quick but you know he's he has to work and has to find details and pushes on with marginal gains and he's kept hungry in. He's kept motivated. You've never sensed any time where. He's being tired of racing and form lonzo board racing full-on. There's been frustrations has annoyances that far had such a strong engine in twenty eighteen. He's had no noises. Difficulties nico rosberg. The the falling out. Which i think was was proud of the low. The low point for lewis atmosphere during that era When there was a big thing to the whole thing falling apart but through old he just keeps pushing. He keeps working and constantly trying to improve without complacency falling without motivation falling away. I think you could argue. Actually that two thousand sixteen season it was the conduct final thing that completed that process in that he yes we know had unreliability problems and that nico was probably being a bit political behind the scenes. Away lewis doesn't appreciate. He just likes to rock up and do his thing. He's not really a political catcher in that sense but he also gave away some points that year with poor starts a combination of nico absolutely maximizing what he had and making sure we could starts. They've unreliability lewis was enough for him to lose a chance that he out clearly. He never thought he should have lost that ship to nico rosberg. And he probably shouldn't have done. And i think the twenty seventeen spent hamilton. Since then we've seen him just be making absolutely sure. There isn't any way that he's gonna lose a chance. You la again. And i think he's been pretty awesome. Since the second half of twenty seventeen we have been periods where ferrari had a quick car and he and we'll about trump shelby. Yeah he stepped up. And he's just i think he's you're brilliant. I suspect probably the big wide faster car seat him as well. When you look back at the photos and footage pre two thousand seventeen. They do look a bit skinny and rubbish. I do think. I look call or better now. And i think the environment mercedes without nico has obviously been better for him as well. He doesn't really want an intra team fight. he wants to be. Yeah the the main guard teams around taking on for oil rape or whatever. That's the saw alikes. So i think it's a combination of all those factors and these own personal drive is remarkable. Egypt keeps keeps keeps going in improving. I rely that line came up with the thing is last year. Where even if he's paul. He imagines himself or car. Just that little bit at a reach shows away striving if you've ever played a computer game where you're racing a ghost car drive there when when you when you trying to cap site goes and he's having real yeah in his head in real life. That was caught. this shows. Yeah you could be on second. And he's still got try and get that invisible cards just fun exit or something and they also saying ways tiresome. Ridiculous point trotted out. Know it's all about in the car and was we know on. The car is very very important in a certain degree point. He doesn't work because if it's all about the call wise voucher bots winning every race and and things not at the moment but what is undeniable is in terms of kids. The tires that lewis used throughout his career is only got. The one world title came on the bridge. Stein's in two thousand eight over the rest of the parolees which don't have the grades. Reputation is still trouble going on in terms of you. Think matt tobacco in jane balance a master of management. I think we look at that race in sachi. Just gone i can. He wins the race because the rain comes i still. There's a sense that undermines did accidentally the racist pasto offer a little bit. You just got the sense. That lewis was doing what he's done so many times throughout his career mainly davao botox in recent years. Which is what. I'm going to sit here. White v to destroy your tires and go policy. Because that's what that's what. He did so successfully. Obviously it was more dramatic in the early. The early years of the twenty thirteen twenty fourteen onwards and things like that. I think that's just something about amazon's success that we should always be recognized but in terms of in terms of his rivals cave. you mentioned. Twenty up begins sebastian.

"Be very very surprised he gets to two hundred. If i'd be very surprised if any driver gets to two hundred. So i think the first one to get the century is a is a big moment for f one. Even if we didn't quite appreciate as much as we probably could done on sunday and data a second element in terms of that one hundred race. Victory that some of the shine of things for both hamilton. A mercedes was the fact that moslem went from the back of the grid to second because saw of e you get you get the feeling that lewis won't start eighth worlds is more than anything else and they would have nine that perhaps they were. They were expecting to have a big point. So we're knowing rebel staying in the back but it didn't work out that way do you have i mean. Did you ever think hundred race wins would be achieved in formula one is. It's difficult nick. Records there to be broken. But now i don't think when marsha maxine ninety-one one that just seemed a ridiculous number itself and for lewis to get there the arm sure someone will break it in the future. You know season's getting longer careers drivers yum extra step so young. When he started it impossible that he could be the one the brakes if if his career guy who's the way he he wants to wants it to. But yeah i don't think you could. You could have predicted it. Hundreds of seems the arm bar beyond got really into one when our land prostitutes and senator battling out on their combined. Total is ninety. Two nice to be you know. Don't one eight hundred four one years so for for those come along. Get one hundred dollars. Eight case yeah. It's an incredible achievement. But now we've learned that records records can be broke concern show. Hamilton's will be vulnerable at some point. I think john's are being the first two hundred eight does it does mean something. This is a remarkable achievement in date and evenings engine to think that form with the with the upcoming ruse changed. Its the thinking behind. That is to stop one team. Absolutely dominating as mercedes have of late as ferrari today at the start of the century but the influence history there's always being team to dominate remains to being wherever that comes to pass it. Does you would expect if the wind is spread out a lot more much much harder for one particular driver t to get anywhere near hamilton's total but again if he does come to pass that another payment is an amazing cycle. That mercedes did as you say that. With the with the racist with the season length approaching twenty five. It's not going to be that many. Think when when lewis matched or broke democracy amac is record daniel regard. I must be at the nurburgring because we're always in the press conference with him. Mccarter said that is basically you think about that. Toto is basically winning every single race for five years. That's that's that's that's the that's the that's the level of domination that he's had and that's what it takes to reach that high numbers and but john just thinking about this this milestone in the context of hamilton's career. Where do you think that ranks among his other achievements. i think the number of titles will be the is the thing that makes people reflect on when we look back on careers. I think the number. I think if he can go for a nine or even more And take that record. That will be more than you know. I think nine titles would be more than one. Hundred fifty wins or something. I think that's what people look back. On and reflect on justice she mce breaking franchise record and getting seven lewis. Going eight or nine will be a much greater achievements in winning world championships. Still the number one aim is still the the most difficult thing to go through the pain that You know to she might netflix film. You know that that pain and the push to get that world jump ship for ferrari came you had to wait till two thousand and all the all the winds they got in that period counted for nothing even not remarkable. It was sean. Todd said we were questioning. If michael was the the right man. Did we need some someone that make hackman despite all the winds. So what counts his championships. So while i think it's a you know we'll be a nice thing. If lewis hamilton's is created with the most world championships the most wins. The most pole positions still thinks that the championship still ranks up. There is you know how how the how most people reflect on the success for drivers are would agree with that. But i think he's a little bit of a shame. Actually that is the case a completely correct but the point jolly of any race whether it's in the challenge is to win it and i think he's gonna the purest measure your law. Statistics in full honor been ruined. Now one way or another thing. I thought he slapped giving point is messed that up position. They're in the middle of trying to screw up with this sprint near the sprint race result gives you an official position. The point system has been chained so comparing hamilton's points to say somebody like prostate centuries. Point is as pointless. So yeah the to i think the two stats you can look at. And yes that is meaningful still all the winds in the in the world titles and are completely agree with john we'll chap she says what he will be remembered for are offering the winds in the ratio of wins starts yet. Lewis is one more than a third of his gone pres. Which if you remember. They had to put up with red bull domination for a few years. Against the best. In veto think's remarkable prostate senator about twenty five percent. Yeah most of the great drivers in the sort of mid twenty percent. And he's over thirty. So i do think that is that is meaningful..

"I'm so excited for this. I finally watched the Italian Grand Prix. It was on Sunday morning. I apologize I'm late. That game took place the same day that NFL week one kicked off. Saturday night leading up to the race was an all nighter for me. I was busy editing my predictions and previews and trying to get everything out I could. I think I uploaded literally like 35 videos that morning. I was a little busy to be watching an F one race, which isn't my bread and butter. People realize that my number one thing is football, I have to cover that. I will cover the Russian Grand Prix much more quickly hopefully Monday morning, my race review will come out for the Russian Grand Prix and Sochi this upcoming week. Anyway, I did watch the race from last weekend and it was a wild one. Oh my goodness. Lewis and max collided, Danny Ricardo won, it was a blast to watch. I want to break it all down. I want to start by talking about Max Verstappen and Lewis Hamilton crashing. So Lewis just had reentered the track from a pit stop, and max was really, really pissed because he just had an 11 second pit stop. He'd win her on the track one time and had gone from second place to tenth. And was really upset about losing his positioning, and he did not want to give up his position to Lewis Hamilton. So max drove up alongside Lewis as he went around a corner, and they crashed going around the turn. It was a scary cry. So terrifying. I put a video on my Instagram story, I put it on Twitter. Max Verstappen had all four wheels off the ground, and he climbed up on top of Lewis Hamilton's car. It's one of those things where you see Max Verstappen's car on top of Lewis Hamilton's Mercedes, and you have this awakening moment and you're like, thank goodness for the halo. Without the halo, Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton might have literally died, and anyone who had any opposition to the halo was proved on Sunday, like you were ridiculous. Anybody who didn't want the halo in Formula One, I think was just flat out wrong because you would have lost one of the greatest drivers if not the greatest driver in Formula One history, Lewis Hamilton. Definitely in the conversation. At minimum would have been severely injured by literally Max Verstappen's car landing on top of him. And it was ugly. And I do fear that this is not the end of battling and crashing between Macs and Lewis max and Lewis are number one and number two in the title fight in Formula One.

And before I say loaded, Mel and Todd, I'm gonna give them like five extra seconds to catch up on some sleep and say Thank you, everybody who spend time listening to us. Over the last handful of months, plus the people that I'll make this podcast possible. Mike Boss Matt offer David Presley helped bring this podcast to life through video, Daniel dot our intrepid producer and all those involved with the audio product. It was a banner year for us, and it was a banner year again for Mel Kiper Jr and Todd McShay. Mel, How are you doing after the draft? Have you slept more than like six or seven hours per night? Since then, a little less like that survival? This is kind of our bear Grylls moment. Throw us out there and We could come back and still stand today after a couple days after the draft, and we're still standing. We're so excited. Hot. Scott is mock draft for next year coming out Thursday. I've already got some guys raided that I got a big board coming out in two weeks for next year's dress up this one of being a rearview mirror will move on to next year pretty soon, But today we'll kind of review everything and come up with some Some ideas about who we think did well, some surprising, puzzling moves and wrap up the dress. I'll tell you what, guys. A lot of good players went on draft and they've already signed with respective teams there. You kind of your 8th and 9th round picks, and some of those guys could be in camp and and helping things this year. The national football it hanging in good. I told type of the story yesterday. So my parents both worked for Delta. Right Growing up. I've been flying on planes since I was like 89 months old. I've never been able to sleep on a plane ever. I so we I'm flying from Cleveland to Boston, and I got a tap on the shoulder. It's a flight attendant, and he says it's time to go. You got to grab your bag and go. Ah $100 seats heated and one that was my safe. One veterinarian 150. People had passed by that I slept through the whole thing and I look around and there were people with You know the cleaning through the trash bags cleaning everything up on the roof. This is embarrassing. Isn't it? Lucky that no one had somewhere else to take you out to take it. Oh, yeah. Good One wound up in Germany. That is amazing. Well, it's certainly well earned, and the content has not stopped. The draft is over. I know Mel astonish draft great artist on his biggest question, Mark, You mentioned that ties doing his 2022 mock draft, which comes out on Thursday mail. You're working on your big Board. The draft really is a 365 days a year event, but we don't want to let this draft that just went behind us passed by without taking at least one more bite of the Apple to review some of the picks that were made some of the strategies involved by teams and maybe those that we felt like fair, stronger than others. So we're going to start in reviewing this draft by starting with teams that we thought How to stand out draft knocked out of the park. So, Mel, I'll give you the first pick. It was a team that knock knock this draft out of the park. A two ways the Miami Dolphins are so it had a great trance. I don't do they get players to help on both sides of all. We got 2023 1st round pick from the 40 Niners, but Jalen Waddle Jalen Phillips should be impact performers of pass rusher and Phillips and a receiver. Return Man. Put returner and Waddle Jamaan, Holland Liam like the bird hunter long that second tight end Barnell Coleman at huge book an underrated attack while you mask They did really well in the Chargers, I thought lined it up. They sat. They waited for Slater to be there. He was a 13 Asante Samuel, junior cornerback from Florida State line. The more underrated players goes that 47. Then they get guys like Chris Rough. A good pass rusher in the fourth round. I like Brendan. Hi. Mrs. Potential in Nebraska know about the Senior Bowl practice. I went back. It's those the tape in the brass, Katie. He held up very well. There was the Cornhuskers Roundtree running back in the sixth around. Nice pick there. So I gave the Chargers and the Dolphins of two highest phrase in the Giants. Kind of amended that Came up the B Plus should have given him a day They moved down twice. They got a first round pick next year from Chicago. They got social or in a second to various Tony and the first added some real good players along the way. So I'd say that the Dolphins Chargers giants in that order for May. I was just saying that comes to mind for you. I was just to say quickly. Gettleman. Dave Gettleman. The GM of the Giants has never traded down before And so he kind of went against the grain and move down twice, and I thought it over. Really successful draft. I'll start with the other New York team. The Jets. I thought Joe Douglas did a tremendous job and listen. He deconstructed the roster and get got all this. This draft capital on 20 picks over to your span so that he can maneuver around. He's not going to spend all 20 text, but it's just figuring out the guys that he wants. Obviously sitting in number two They love Zack Wilson, the quarterback from BYU. He knew that he wanted to go up and get Elijah Vera Tucker, the offensive tackle in college, who's gonna kick inside the guard from jets to put.

I don't like definitely think this is a qualifying. That red bull lost rather than mercedes one. So yeah lewis. Hamilton was brilliant. Excellent job but he himself will admit that neither of his two laps were particularly a hundred percent. Perfect is what he said he needed to being said. If you can him about listen in the press conference he says if you put the t. laps together you would have not perfect but i think we still felt both of them. There was time on the table.

He sounded exactly like a person who's had to sort of model. We hope case of corona virus would expect a bit under the weather but you know he seems fairly upbeat but yet how how badly or how much as appropriate for repeated word. How much do you think that impacts his performance this weekend having to recover from from the owners. I think it's definitely something that has to be taken into account and talking to people who've had covet and i think even for drivers i believe space salon strauss today for example about the impacts of long covert.

Saudis sporting soft-power attempt

"November twenty eighth the green lights over the greed in jeddah will go out and the first saudi arabian grand prix will into life and though twenty formula one qasr raise a mightily impressive in the start of a race. They will need to rev extra to have any hope of drowning out throughout about the propriety of this event occurring at all a row to which this very explainer is about to make a modest contribution. Let's look at the undeniable upsides. I which one take too long in and of itself. The saudi arabian grand prix will doubtless be a splendid spectacle. It is to be held on a street circuit in jeddah the precise layout remains to be confirmed but it seems certain one part of the track will conduct formula one's spelt machines down the konishi the boulevard which hugs the red sea coast. And the saudis will certainly dredge deeply from the bottomless pit of money to rent the proceedings as sumptuous extravagant as possible. It might even be of crucial importance in the context of next season. The saudi arabian grand prix will be the second lost race of the year. So if two thousand and twenty one turns out not to be yet. Another procession led by lewis hamilton. The wheel of his mercedes come at the calendar man lewis. Hamilton starts an incredible qualifying. They could still be much to play playful when the teams arrive in jeddah. So that's the good news. Then there are the reasons why this edition to the formula. One calendar is the stuff of foreign desk explainers. It is hopefully not necessary to reemphasize the variety and severity of the ways in which the saudi regime is one of the world's most repressive. We do not have all day still less all month. It is suffice to say a regime which ethically inclined businesses would tend to regard from the foreign bargepole formula one does not appear overly troubled on this front in recent years alone. Races have been held in russia as a fan bahrain and china. None of whom would be within sight of the podium at any sort of grand prix of human rights. it is probably not outrageous to suggest that formula one's principal objections to holding a race meeting in north korea. Iran equatorial guinea or turkmenistan would be logistical rather than an ethical. So we know what formula one wants from this. What's more interesting is what saudi arabia is off to. Saudi arabia has some history of recognizing the immense soft power possibilities of formula one in the late nineteen seventies and early nineteen eighty s saudi state airline saudia sponsored the uk based williams team australian driver. Alan jones carried their logo to the one thousand nine hundred world championship. Tell checkered flag often goes allen jones. what a wonderful way to pay is nineteen eighteen world championship. Riyadh's re engagement with the sport is being pitched as part of the modernizing reformist agenda of ambitious saudi crown prince mohammad bin salman though it does not feel untoward lee churlish to note that nba if to whole saudi arabia into the mid nineteenth century have made some distinctly old school d to via for example conducting a ruinous rampage in neighboring yemen and dispatching hitmen to murder a vexatious journalist the un's extrajudicial executions investigator. Agnes calamar has just released a report at pains a- damning picture of saudi arabia's role in the murder of journalists jamal has all of which is tricky to square with formula one's commitment to respect for human rights which f. one has typed out on their website and everything it promises to it says he engage in meaningful consultation with relevant stakeholders in relation to any issues raised as a result of out due diligence. A sentence which could have been designed to lull readers to sleep inside four syllables. Human rights groups are already speaking of their hope that lewis hamilton who barring mishap will be defending his seventh world championship. Next season might get out in front of this. How has grown more politically outspoken. This year in particular among the slogans on the black lives matter t shirt he wore at this year's emilia romagna grand prix was women's rights are human rights. A repeat performance would give saudi broadcasters amusing connections. Saudi arabia is clearly keen on what has become known as sports washing the tactic beloved unpleasant regimes of staging sporting circuses. In the hope that they may distract from your moral infirmities and impressed with your economic progress in recent years. Saudi arabia has hosted international gulf tennis equestrian and other tournaments formula one one of the planet's most popular television spectacles. He's a massive step up.

2020 F1 season: No reverse grids for double-headers

"Talked about this last week, but it's been confirmed now that reverse grids will not be happening at the double header this year because Toto Wolff is not into them. He's apparently the only dissenting voice that required unanimity and Formula One fell one short as a shame authority I thought he would be an all for that. You know he's talked about these issues in the one where? He has provided on things for the greater good. Decisions that may not necessarily be the best for for his team, so in this instance. Sort of gone against that one little bit hasn't even as given three reasons which we didn't have last week, so let's consider them three very specific reasons, reason number one that is formula a meritocracy and this would be a gimmick. Which look I understand on one level because it is very arbitrary, just reverse secret especially when there is such a big performance disparity I mean. Let's be honest. That means Williams is going to be starting on the front row with agreed every double header. And that does look a bit silly. When the wheels of Folding Company and they've decided. Yeah, but I, I think people are now beginning to unravel an inherent problem with qualifying represents. Your qualifying at the Front of the grid to get. Not even to get ahead. What is qualifying? Is it to get a head start on the foster 'cause, or is it basically an order of which you'll car is better than everyone. Else's so therefore you also get more of a headstart than everyone, but then I'm going to be able to catch you anyway, and then therefore you know. Come the groom furry. We don't have a spectacle of saying the best car. We. We literally say the best car being the car, and while that might be nice for Lewis. Hamilton NFL bought has depending on the time of day. It. The rest of the shark doesn't it doesn't really matter so everyone's having a bit of an existential cross whether pay a boiling it down so well. Is this entertainment or sport that we're after? Wouldn't it be? Form One, just adopt the model of trading itself as the ultimate speed comparison. They have it some grown pretty well. You do all this relations on practice actually with wile, maybe Rendu like a sprint rice ingred order not in reverse order, and then just figure out how long how much quicker the Mercedes than the red bull, how much quicker the red believes in the Ferrari and just. Just place them several laps pot, and so the idea is that on the final lap they'll end up crossing the line at about the same time, and you'll have a great. Fini the other thing is i. think everyone has caught up with the history of what qualifying is I mean people always do the direct comparison of all man as instead of had x amount of pole position. We Wanna piece on that sort of history well. Things evolve and and things change. So you know we we you capable of open open-minded Tim's of what? The one he's going to look like.

I'm going to my friend's house devastated by Rhonda Right and I loved it so much am but my dad was really hot for my family. My Dad remortgaged had to remortgage house. God knows how many times He had four jobs at one stage in the early stages which sounds crazy because there was no future plan for us you know but it was just hoping that we love doing but it was getting more and more expensive How can I? How can I make money to pay for the tires this weekend? How can I keep the call going? Nowhere weekends wells like aside to do a race number desert. I'm I'm sorry. I've done the money this weekend. So He's been the the one of the most infamous stepmom. She's coming to a new relationship as a kid there and she gave up her life. Saving and belief and the commitment was just. It's so special to the real story is not the success that I've had that that people from working in a working class families can really relate to dance. Who Don't know what to do with his. You see people out there today. Support naked on the side of football pitches the same the same thing and there's not a lot of Jarvis data have that background so as the Honda to a lot of people to relate to. But that's the one. I'm trying to make sure that people know because we came from nothing you can do it with a lot of hard work and of course you've got to have fortune on the way in the sense of meat if I didn't meet the boss of the four one team a win of signed and without that signing I would have made it because we would add money. Have you seen cool runnings? Yeah Yeah of course. You know my favorite that took place in Calgary. Yes I grew up in. Calgary did yes. I was there for Olympic no way where the Jamaican bobsled team shown. Yeah Wow and I got two weeks off of school does those. I was in the opening ceremonies. Actually no way so I spent the whole and we were obsessed with that to make him pops team no way. Yeah the the W tops. 'cause I was I was like I don't know in one thousand nine seventy five thousand nine hundred eighty eight. I was thirteen years old but yeah I remember that team. Why Cool runnings? I'm just remember watching cool. Runnings Is My favorite movie and causes. So just the most relatable story that had as a kid so I always relate a lot my life to that movie casino. They arrive this rust bucket at the top of the hill. For the first time they put out and everyone everyone goes quiet and I always relate to light me. My Dad arriving you know would race track the race rapid he would say with trump's because of you know what we have these great close the 'cause shoved Shoved in the back of the boot of vodka and we be picking up on the floor and it looks doesn't look good and A lot of people looking us like what they doing here. You know because again. It wasn't a diverse group. Is it always been a white dominated sport however there was in in the early stages there are there were some other families are trying but they would have they run out of money but So a lot of that you know we just did our talking on the track as they did in the Post said they kept. They didn't win over the nitty. Did they narrowly people's Hopkins? Yeah they did. But you've you've gone on and you become you know without exaggeration. A living legend in your field six F one titles the first one at the age of twenty three youngest ever at the time. What what did you learn about achieving success at such a young age at such an elite level? What does it take? Yes you had some lock. You had clearly got a gift incredibly supportive home environment but at the end then again it comes down to your dedication and and then the focus on what you wanted. Yeah talk to me a little bit about that. It was really difficult out. Search the journey. I think people generally seem to own see the tip of the iceberg. Don't know if you've ever seen an iceberg unknown. How big is beneath the huge? Yeah and there's a picture I found that shows you the success one sees this little bit on the top underneath his world however is so you know. I'm people tune in today and see someone that's one times in the championships and 'em probably not fully aware of how it's taken me years Windows Eight. Danton pro to those twenty two and when I got two phone one so the build up to it. It's just not prepared. You prepare to race. Don't get any preparation tons of media training. You don't get prepare repression tons of what you know. No-one said this is what's going to happen when people start seeing on TV. And that because that's a real shock to the system and Am working no this when you work with a big station when his thousand people behind you working to make your decisions out on the track impact every single one of those you know so if you're selfish Choices and you make mistakes and crash. Everyone feels it. Sure there was a it was a lot of pressure but And again being that we came in every conversation so you the first year the first back from one driver. This never been here again. No diversity in it's only me my dad really people of Color in the in in this which is quite felt alone. A little bit in that sense But it was a great platform for us to do something great and
