"Did you try? Which F one driver most deserves the moniker of my evil wife Hamilton, because you love him, but he also confounds you and his team definitely confounds you. Oh, but is he the evil or is it Mercedes? This is the evil one, but you also want him to be your wife. So. Christina, I can't give this to you. Okay. Okay. I'm sorry. I love Louis Hamilton too much to ever call him my evil wife. Okay. Let me see. Sorry, Christina. Evil. So minus ten points or partial credits. And then I do want to hear Leo's. Yeah, I do. This actually probably would have been the one that Leo would have totally given great at. I do have one in mind. I'm willing to put him aside for the purposes of your creativity, but there is someone in mind that's like an obvious evil wife. Oh yes. I think, well, I'm torn between Daniel Ricciardo and Sebastian Vettel. I can't decide who should be my evil wife. I'm going to say Sebastian Vettel because he's sad and lonely. Now that he's not racing anymore. Oh, that's good. I disagree. I think Red Bull era said would have been an evil wife, but now he's just like a beekeeper dad.
Parenting Autistic Children David Grant MBE - burst 2
"This episode will be doing things a little bit differently, though, as I'll be interviewing my husband, yes, fellow broadcast a vocal coach and leadership coach and campaigner David grant. As we talk about our own experiences of raising four neurodivergent children, welcome to the show David. Wow, nice to be here, Gary. So for those people that don't know about our family, could you just give us a rundown of our kids? Okay, we have four children our eldest olive is an actor. Our and olive is 27. Next in line is Thailand, who is 20 and also an actor. Next in line is Arlo, who is 16 and at school. And next is in line is Nathan, who is 12. And supposed to be at school, but currently not in school. Yes, okay, so you just had a little bit of a hint towards their not in school. That's been a familiar experience for us with three out of the four children. Because you've named all of their ages in their names and stuff. But what about their diagnoses? Just run me by some of the diagnosis that our children have got. Okay, I will, but because this is like a pick and mix at which point I'm bound to forget some. Would you jump in if I forget any? Yes. Because you know them as well as I do. Olive, has a disparity. And ADHD, Thailand is on the autism spectrum. And Arlo, third is on the autism spectrum. And Nathan. Now I got a minute rewind rewind back up back up. Arlo is autistic and has ADHD. Of course, yes, I forgot all of it as a whole a whole suit of what coterie. Yeah, these disabilities, they're traveling gangs, don't they? And has ADHD. Nathan a 12 year old has ADHD DMDD. Probably dyslexia. Even though they're still working on a diagnosis, and yeah, we have, you know, at some point, if anybody does disability bingo, we jump up and say house. Yeah, well, it's interesting you say disability because I don't really think of them as being disabilities. I think of them as being just different. I don't think of them as there are any disabilities in the light of the fact that the world is so unaccepting. That's very true. I think that one of the things with an invisible disability so it's called is that, you know, if we what we have done in our family is to recognize that the reason why it's called a disability is because some people find it more challenging to do things that neurotypical people take for granted. On the other hand, without children, it's also proven to be a different ability, because so many of them are able in ways in so many ways that they might not otherwise be able. You know, the gifted in ways that they might otherwise not be gifted. They're different and see the world in ways that absolutely challenge a neurotypical vision of the world. Yeah, and that's what we love about them. So tell me what it was like when all of these diagnoses that you've just mentioned there started to pop up. How did that come about and what were your feelings? Well, it's interesting. I've spoken to so many parents because we run parent groups. And I spoke to so many parents about the initial diagnosis and the reactions have been very, very many in varied, you know, for some people, it's a bit of a shock for some people it's almost like a disappointment for others. It's a surprise for others. It's an explanation. And I would say for us, well, certainly for me, it was in part an explanation. And also, in part, a sort of a wake-up call that said to me, this journey isn't going to be anything that you might have imagined. It is going to be. We don't know what it's going to be, but what we do know is that it's going to, it's going to plow its own field and chart its own course when we first got the diagnosis of our second and third Thailand and Arlo, the ones who are now 2016, which we got the autism diagnosis on the same day. Tai was 7. Aloe was three. What was that like for you? I have to be honest. And there was absolutely no sort of like heightened emotion connected to it, concern or disappointment or what was there was, okay, I need to now discover what this means. What this means for them, what this means for us and how it makes things different. Is it going to make things different if it does? How is it going to make things different? Because it didn't change them in any way. They got in the car. You got given the diagnosis and then they just got in the car and they were still Tyler and Arlo, weren't they? They had to change. But with that bit of paper yeah, it didn't change them one dot. One shot. One bit. But what it did change was my awareness of who they were. What it did change is my awareness that they may see the world a different way. And I didn't know what that was going to be, because there are only 7 and three, but what I did know was that the carnage journey that you can prescribe and chart out and say that the raising of a child is likely to fall within these parameters. There may be anywhere from track a to track B but the train is going to run along these tracks in some way. That went completely out of the way. I didn't realize at the time just how far out of the window it was going to go. But I did think, okay, this changes things. And one of the, I mean, some people might call it exciting with the benefit of hindsight, but at the time slightly sort of slightly nerve wracking things was having no idea of what it meant was going to change as they grew and as they developed. And as they began to inhabit the fullness of their personhood and understand the fullness of their identities, what was going to change. Well, we didn't know. And I think that, you know, there's a saying that everyone to see person probably knows, which is even if you've met one autistic person, you've met one autistic person. And even with just having two children on the spectrum in the family, the presentation is so entirely different. Yeah, they are. If somebody said to me, when we got the diagnosis, this is what autism looked like. And used one of them as in illustration. It would have completely excluded the other. Because the other one wouldn't have got a diagnosis based on that. It's very, very good point. So you've talked about what it was like to kind of grow in your knowledge of them and who they might become and to understand them a little. But what about parenting? Have you changed as a parent? This was 2009 if I remember. So we've had a good few years since. Have you changed as a parent? As a parent, I am unrecognizable from the parent I was in 2009. Now let's be really honest about this. Anybody who has raised a child will say, well, yes, of course, the parent you are to a 16 year old and the same parent you are to three year old. So there's the natural evolution of your relationship that happens as your child grows and matures. But there's also, I think that certainly for me having children on the spectrum, it meant that I needed to really abandon everything I thought I knew about parenting. It meant that I had to discover and develop a bespoke style of parenting that fitted specifically the child that was in front of me rather than having a general sort of one size fits all approach because it absolutely didn't fit. And really, it's not to my credit that I think that I was quite resistant to that because of the way they don't fit the one size fits all. Then it's obviously because I'm not implementing the one size fits all with enough figure. So I need to I need to just retrain and double down on the one size fits all and it will work and the fact is it was never going to work. And it kind of I would say out of the two of us, I was you were the hair when it came to realizing that we needed to adapt and adopt a new parenting style and we need it to be fluid and I was very much the tortoise. There was a kind of rigidity of no this is how you do it. And you know, I think that with regard to parenting, having children on the autism spectrum has taught me and continues to teach me is teaching me to be a parent, I would otherwise never have been. And I think that had I never have been, I would have missed a lot. There's a lot of their growing up that I got by constantly having to reassess and reappraise and recognize who they are now. You know, not living on who they were last year or last week, even. You know, who are they now? Who are they today? And who do they need me to be today? Yeah. So you talked about the fact that it took you a little bit longer to describe yourself as the tortoise. So how was that then? Well, I made the tool to seem like St. Louis Hamilton. We got the diagnosis in 2009. Up until about 2012, I thought there's something wrong with these kids because they're really not getting my style of parenting. About 2012, I began to realize there was something wrong with me because I wasn't being the parent they needed me to be. And then I was all at sea. I think I took a little while to actually work out. If I've got autistic kids, I need to learn, it's not me teaching them and then learning how to be. It's actually me learning and I think that I think that when I kind of was humble enough to recognize that I didn't actually know, you know, sometimes you don't know what you don't know. But when you've got autistic children and they need you to be a parent, you have to learn what you don't know. You have to realize what you don't know and it is certainly in my case. I think I learned a lot from watching you, but I also learned a lot from realizing that I couldn't be you and I couldn't just be you the deeper voice that I actually had to change me. I couldn't just ape behavior that I saw it with someone else. I had to change the way my outlook and gosh, I would say that you're saying how long did it take to be? Well, the diagnosis arrived 13 years ago. And I consider myself still to be under construction, and a work in progress, because the dads that I was 5 years ago that they needed me to be 5 years ago isn't the dad they need me to be now. Because they've changed. Yeah. You talked a little bit there about you said this lovely phrase bespoke parenting. So just give me some examples of what you have bespoke. Bespoken. Okay, it's interesting because with, I was 16 year old, there was a rigidity of actions that isn't always, so it wasn't just a rigidity of thinking. So with Arlo, we have certain things. I am my face is a stress toy. I actually, I mean, I know I look like this, but you know, I think I would look about maybe 15 years younger, if not for all. All that has to excuse my face. And they always squeeze my face and there are certain things that we do. There are certain actions that we do. There are certain little dances we do. There are certain words that we say. I don't even understand your communication. I mean, you two are like a whole, you're like a double act. I know. It's all part of my being father to Arlo, is that we have loads of unspoken communication. That revolve around movement and actions and dances and laughing at the same thing that other people don't understand what's going on. I've had to learn that I've had to enter into our lives world and learn how that world works. On a practical thing, although loves to have drives, they want to have a drive once a day. It's part of a de stressor towards the end of the day. Some people read or watch TV or they're too young to have a drink, they go on a drive. They sit in the car and listening to music and we drive and 40 minutes later, half an hour, 40 minutes later, we arrive back home and they're in a different head space to the one they were when we left. And that's an important thing. So whatever the schedule will have my day. If I'm at home or if I'm coming home, I know I need to be out for that drive for Allah because that's an important part of parenting are there. And it's an interesting thing that to me, it's not even I don't even think of it as a chore or a stress. It's just part of being a dad. It's part of being their dad. Yeah. Because I actually think that, you know, speaking of bespoke parenting, I could quite probably be a rubbish dad to every other child in the world, but I've learned how to be the dad that the children I have need. Yeah. And that is bespoke. It is also humor. You have loads of humor, I would say, with Arlo. Yeah, yeah, we are a lot. Mostly at me, but often at all because Arlo is really funny at all that has learned to laugh at themselves in a way that they couldn't when they were younger. You know, in the early teens, they could not laugh at themselves because I think they felt such a level of low self worth and such a lack of confidence that to laugh with them at themselves would have been perceived to be laughing at them. And one of the ways that I can see that their confidence is growing and their belief that they have a place in the world is growing. Is for how much they laugh at themselves, how much of their humor is directed inwards. Yeah. I agree with you on that. Okay, so that's Arlo, who's our 16 year old. What about Tyler and katana is very different? What have you had to change very different? In your parenting of time and what's changed there for them? I think in my parenting style and what's changed is to listen to time. It's to really listen is to not be so ready to give advice, not be so ready to give an answer because even sometimes when ty says. I need to know what to do. I know that what will happen is that I'll be giving answers. And they'll be saying no, those aren't the answers. That's really bad advice. What I should be doing is this. So it's almost like they're using me as a sounding board. A classic example is when we run our way up to Holly oaks for their final audition. Time is one of the members of the cast of Holly oaks down. And it was their final audition and they were absolutely wrapped with nerves. And we're driving along the M1. And they're almost crying with us. And I thought this isn't good for them. It's really isn't good. And I said, you know what? I want you to know you don't have to do this. We can turn the car around and we can go back, and they said, so that's the worst thing you could have said. You can't say that. This is what you're supposed to say. I told you what they wanted to hear. And you know, it's a completely different kind of relationship to all that. And how we connect and how we relate is to share time together. Yes. And that's the wonderful thing we're tie. I mean, tiles say there's a box set that I've been watching and I really want you to watch it. So I'll sit and watch. And you know, maybe in the course of an hour, we'll say three or four sentences, but time. That's together time. That's valuable time. That's been our time. And you know, it'll be, I'll get a text with have a listen to this music or I'll send them some music. And tire listens and goes, yeah, I like this. I really like this. And then he'll put that on his playlist and that'll be and that will be a connection to the communication because what tie really loves. One of the things that I love is that feeling of being part of my heritage and my dad played this for me or my dad told me about this. And then what ty does then is to do the same for me. So I know you're like this. Have you heard of such and such? And it'll be somebody that I liked when I was 20 years old or something. And then we'll connect on that level, but it's a very, very different communication to our lows, but it's just as deep and it's just as valid, but it's entirely different. And if I was to switch and relate to time, like I do to other and relate to other, like I do to tie it, I would be completely disconnected from a couple of meltdowns going on there for sure. Yes. So you and I have run a parent support group. It has over a 180 parents, families, and we work with the families and with the children. That's been running for very long while. And over lockdown, you have run your weekly meeting online every single week for those parents. And I've been absolutely amazed and marvel at you and your consistency and the way that you love those parents is just wonderful. I love them too, by the way. But I love watching you talk to it to them. If there's parents of autistic children listening today or families of autistic children. What advice would you have? You know those parents when they join our group. What do they most need to hear? I think what most autistic superior will most parents of autistic children that join our group and need to hear is that they're not alone on this journey. I don't think that most people need parenting advice. Occasionally people will ask, look, this is a situation how would you approach this situation and ask the group? But generally, I mean, we're talking about super parents, parents who sacrifice everything and are willing to sacrifice everything. And by that, I'm not talking about money or material I'm talking about themselves. They're hopes aspirations, dreams, whatever they expected for themselves later on in life is just like that all of that gets put into a margin. That gets parked and everything is focused on the needs of their children. So what they need to hear generally is you're not alone on this journey. We've all walked this journey and so when you say something that to somebody else who isn't on this journey may sound outrageous about how you feel about what you're going through about how challenging or difficult or impossible you feel, how inadequate you feel to the task, it's fine to say it here because we've all felt it and we've all expressed it. And the other thing is having a space in your life where you can describe without having to explain, I think that so much energy is spent and wasted and exhausted by people feeling as though they have to explain their children. They have to explain their situation. They stand with a teacher. People say, wow, your child's your child's not that at all. Your child's like this. And they go, well, no, you don't know the whole picture. There is a different person at home to the one in school or the one not in school because they refuse to go into school. Or the one not sleeping because they're refused to go to bed or whatever. Just having a space where you can describe, but you don't have to explain because everybody else who is listening to you gets it. So is your advice that people link up with other parents? I think it's really important to do that. I think it's so important to do that because I think that in Albert Einstein said, if you measure the fish by how well it climbed a tree, you would think it was stupid. And quite often, all we get in terms of a metric for our own children is the yardstick of a kind of neurotypical world. And if the neurotypical world is the tree, our children may be the fastest swimmer in the ocean, but they're not going to climb the tree. So yes, I think it's really important to link up with other parents who are walking the same walk. Others who are in the same situation others who will be able to listen to you and not just sympathize and not just empathize but experientially understand. Yeah. No, I know for many of our families that we support theirs. There's quite a high percentage of their children and young people and we see this in the adults as well autistic adults might be struggling with their mental health, what have you learned about coming alongside our children in their mental health crises? Wow. I think I've learned more than anything that there's no quick fix. There are no easy answers and presents is everything. And that there's no guarantee that if you do a and B, you're going to get C that two and two are going to act a four. But what I do know is this that our children, even when they, we sometimes become The Rock against which they bash. And we feel bashed, but we're the only rocks they've got. And so the thing that I think is how important it is to be there and to listen and when possible to talk them down and when necessary to talk them up and also more than anything to also come alongside others so that we guard our own mental health. Because it's impossible to carry somebody if you're limping. You know, it's really so much harder. And yeah, our children's mental health is such a big deal. It's such a big deal. And it can turn on a sixpence. Everything can be going well. And then one thing, real or imagined, one thing can completely trans the picture. And so I think that most parents I know with autistic children live as such are a level of hyper vigilance that, if anything, yeah, do what you do and be there the way that you're there. But please remember your own mental health, remember your own need for support, remember your own need to be heard. Yeah, and to find voice. Just moving on to, I guess that thing of school and the workplace, how well or not well, our things set up for allowing our neurodivergent people to thrive. Wow. That's really interesting. It's an interesting question because the question in itself is it presupposes that any advanced society would recognize that there is more than one way of seeing the world and there is more than one way of thinking and therefore. An advanced society like ours would set things up that everybody, whatever that, not just the well-being of whether the neurological situation would be able to say, yeah, there's a space for me. There's a place for me. There's an opening for me. There's an acceptance of me. People are making the allowances I need made so that I can thrive, not just so that I can fit in and limp along, but so that I can thrive. But that doesn't really exist in any way like the number that it should. The number of employers who I think employers should be made to have a number of people who are on the autism spectrum, a number of people who have just had a neurodivergent. I think it's really important we get away from this cookie cutter one size fits all everyone has to look the same and replicate one another's strengths in order to fit in. And yeah, I suppose my answer so far suggests that I don't think that nearly enough is done. I don't think the nearly enough is being done. There's so much talent and there's so much ability there's so much intuition and knowledge and just being wasted being sidelined being overlooked being ignored. And if it wasn't overlooked, how much richer we'd be, the companies that actively seek out people on the spectrum because they have an attention to detail perhaps that others don't have or they have a skill set that I was specially interested, which means that they know their stuff almost as much as a PhD student would know just because they're taught themselves that kind of auto didactic skills that so many autistic people have, if only there was a recognition that these aren't just skills that come from a hobby. These are skills that become so deeply engraved. So knowledge based and so worthwhile that their valuable if we could find and be made to find ways to fully utilize the gifts and the talents that we have from people on the autism spectrum, the world would be a much richer place because so many of the things that enrich the modern world were devised or created developed or initiated by people on the autism spectrum. Yeah, which is exactly what all too kind of trying to do. That's absolutely you've just given their remit basically their davids. And we know that for Thailand, their workplace at hollyoaks has they've made all those kinds of adjustments four Thailand. So there is some good practice happening out there, isn't there, but there is. But probably not enough. And I do want to also about people even disclosing that they are artistic before they can even get to the needs that I might have. It is this sense of disclosure. How do we change perceptions out there, David? Gosh, I think that we change perceptions by I think drawing a line that delineates between our understanding of terminology and understanding that the term different and the term normal shouldn't actually be the opposite of one another. That your normal isn't my normal. And the your differences could complement my differences. The fact is that we've created an environment where two often people who are different in any way feel as though they have to underplay or deny their differences and create some kind of fake fake normal that fits with other people. And I don't think that that I don't think that that's right and I don't think it helps. But I can understand why. You know, somebody walked into a typical edition and started by saying, I'm autistic. They don't know they don't know the reaction they're going to get. They don't know whether the person sitting opposite is going to get, you know, yeah, fine. You almost want to go in and say, could you just tell me what you think is autistic looks like? Hear what they say and then
"louis hamilton" Discussed on Strong Opinion Sports
"On Sunday we had the Spanish Grand Prix in form of the one. It was a really entertaining race. There was a lot of drama early on right at the beginning, Kevin Magnussen and Louis Hamilton made contact with each other, they had to pit, they found themselves in dead last at the back of the pack. Lewis Hamilton, by the way, recovered. He got all the way back up to finishing P 5. And one driver of the day well deserving for Lewis Hamilton. Fun storyline. I love that. Great drama, really interesting and fun to watch him climb back up. Carlos Sainz and Max Verstappen both spun out in succession on turn four. Two laps apart, Carlos Sainz spun out lab 7, Max Verstappen, spun out on lap 9. That really hampered the race. It gave charla Claire pulled way ahead. Wait, he was like 11 seconds ahead of everyone else. He had a massive, comfortable lead, Carlos Sainz should have won this race in Spain easily. We also, by the way, got this amazing battle on lap 24 was really the peak of the battle. Where Max Verstappen and George Russell, George Russell was in second max and third. They were wheeled to wheel racing, battling George defending max. He couldn't get his DRS flap open, so the drama was heightened because of that. They were battling for second place. It was intense. He was super fun. I think it's the first time I've ever really seen a true great battle between max and George and I hope we get that for years to come. Like, wow, great racing really fun. I always knew George was a good driver, but I'm really enjoying watching him in a Mercedes prove himself every single week. Then suddenly the race took a turn. Charlotte Clare the Ferrari driver, lap 27, lost power and had to retire. Shocking out of nowhere, it was brutal. He had a massive lead. Charlotte Claire should have won this race easily by a lot. And unfortunately, that result suddenly put Max Verstappen and George Russell in a battle for the lead of the race. Charlotte Claire, he had victory yanked out of his hands in such a sad way. And in all, here's how things turned out here are the way the race played out Max Verstappen got first and won the race, Sergio Pérez came in second..
"louis hamilton" Discussed on The Autosport Podcast
"Do with Hamilton at Mercedes, often beat him because they're both incredibly fast racing drivers, but the difference was they couldn't keep up with the race pace and the tire management and there's not been a lot of evidence the last two races for science in terms of what we'd be able to do stay with Claire. But in Bahrain and Saudi Arabia, that was the difference he was quite far back from its teammate by the end of the race despite having pushed him very hard in qualifying. How are you feeling about sprint weekend Jess after experiencing the first one? We are allowed to call it a race finally, Ross Braun finally came out and said we could play. Have we had the decision from on high? God. Honestly, the amount of mental I mean, everyone's gonna probably come at me 'cause to say how stupid, but the amount of mental capacity I used to have to push to not say race and just say sprint. But you do feel like you're like, there's a word missing here. Sprint what? What does that even mean? The style guide, I believe, we just were like, it is literally a race, therefore, we're going to just look at. Sorry, F one. There is a start. There is a grid. There are some lights they go out. There are the FIA told us. It's a CFI that was like it's qualifying. And it's nice. It's a race. We're just going to write race because it's a race. The interesting thing is that a lot of listeners might not understand, obviously, there is a range of brilliant podcasts and outlets and blogs and things. And if you are auto sport and we've been around for 70 plus years and you say something that somebody doesn't often like, then the decision comes from on high, and we hear about it. If you're doing a bedroom blog or a podcast or whatever is brilliant as they are, they probably don't get the same phone calls that we get because we're trying to keep everyone happy. Anyway, so I think it was a brilliant, a brilliant weekend of racing. Who says you can't overtake at imola because there are some I thought some fantastic moments. This is like the first kind of challenging circuit where we know overtaking is super difficult. So it was going to be the first time that we could see if actually the new regs were going to make a difference. And in the sprint, you would say, yes, and I think in the race you could still say, yes, there's been an improvement, but as we saw, I mean, I did find it really funny that during the sprint, everybody was saying, oh, DRS is way too powerful around him alert. We need to kind of scale it back or maybe get rid of it. And then those same people were manically demanding that DRS be enabled during the race. But again, it's because they're two completely different beasts, yes, okay, they're both races now. But you have different levels of tyre deg and different levels of strategy and the gapping in the field changes. So you don't have that same, it's just a mad dash to the finish line and do 21 laps. It's we're playing the long game here and obviously there was today there was obviously the weather that also became a factor. So the strategists are coming on and saying, it's going to rain. It's going to rain and then it never did. And then it started to drizzle at the end. So there's so many different factors that mean that actually it's probably not fair to compare the entertainment level of the sprint versus the entertainment of today. Now, in the grand scheme of recent, I know we haven't got many recent races to go by. It was okay. Around imola, I was I'll take it, but we still had DRS trains. We still had struggling to pass. I'm sure we're going to get onto it, but Lewis Hamilton was stuck behind Pierre gasly. So there are still, it's not perfect, but it's a damn site better. I think the FIA and F one can be pleased with the impact that the new regs have had. In creating a bit more entertainment around a track like Emma, where it is typically difficult. But the jury is still out. I can't decide if I like sprint race weekends or not. They tend to add obviously to the drama. And we tend to have quite dramatic races off the back, whether or not that's you can directly say that's because of the sprints I'm not sure. I can't decide, but I also don't know, where when do we decide if they're good or not? Because we're running them for three races this year. The idea is to then multiply that next year. But I am a bit of a purist in the sense that I don't like gimmicky elements added to Formula One and having them only for a few circuits. It gives me that gimmicky feel. But the alternative is to either have them at every race, which fans might not like, they might not work. It might fall a bit flat. I can't decide if I like them. And I think the addition of The Rain and the weather factors today kind of doesn't allow us to maybe judge fairly, whether or not the sprint was a good thing or not a good thing. I'm very similar to you, Jess. I think there's just so many elements of it that I don't like, but it is actually quite good, which makes no sense. But anyway, I'm saying this is a no sense. Some would say it's like that. Anyway, my thing that I really hate with the sprint is that they award points for it. I think that's totally ridiculous. If the whole point is to set the grid, thank you for it for it. And especially if that was the case last year, I wrote my caller about it for the magazine and I'll just put dot com plus last week. It just really, really annoys me because there is already a sporting reward for gaining places in that spring race. And that's your spot on the grid. It doesn't need to award points for it. Anyway, for that column, I went back and looked at the three from last year and was like, well, what did the spoon have for an impact on the outcome of the Grand Prix? It definitely did its Silverstone. It definitely did at Monaco. It was less of an impact at Brazil because that was just all about Louis Hamilton and coming back and he had such a car performance and an engine performance difference over everybody else. Here, again, because of the weather, as you said, Jess, I don't think you can say the sprint made any impact at all on the outcome of the Grand Prix. Yes, some drivers were a few spots higher up, but leclerc losing second place off the line going out to fourth. That was all to do with the weather. Nothing to do with what happened in the sprint..

"Picture. That's a great Easter egg. Yeah. Hey, I wish you hadn't called me up on it because then people would be like, is he an idiot or is he just? I think you know which campfire is there. That's right. So we're going to Spain. So look, so Louis, again, beating max, a late charge to reclaim the lead turn one clash, any particular standard memories from this one. You look back on this part of the season, you go, it was all like it seemed pretty at the time it didn't seem chill, but that compared to how it finished, like it was quite yeah, it just seemed much more cordial as I think I said earlier. But yeah, we absolutely, well, it was again. Another one of those, yeah, those run ins and yeah, it did require quite a mighty fight back from Hamilton elves changing strategy and it was I think Mercedes playing the hungry 2019 card again, where they sort of look at the situation they're in the race car right. Let's go for this strategy. Later in the year of the Austin weekend, I had the pleasure of going up to Mercedes to sit in their race support room, which is basically their NASA mission control. Imagine that where all the stash and everything works. And I met the guys like who are behind all these strategies so running the numbers all the time. And they talk about Spain has been one of those weekends where they were like, yeah, we got the numbers and we were like, guys, we got to do this because we're not winning the race this way. This way we do have a chance. And it was just one of those strategies that they brilliantly pulled off. Yeah, some brilliant brilliant driving by Lewis Hamilton, but as Alex alluded to earlier, not entirely helped by his teammates. That was poor from butter. That really was like what he doing. I can't jump out of his way. It's just so easy. I mean, you can kind of understand that. So you see some buffers probably thought he was in a title fight. But I really enjoyed that Spanish Grand Prix and actually that first corner moved from Max Verstappen Martin if I can share my big memory of that race. I think I cheered when max did his move and just to be absolutely clear for idiots on Twitter. That does not mean I was wanting max was happen to be Louis Hamilton or that I care which one of them wins. It's because it was interesting. Oh my God, was that interesting? They did that. They came from so far back and he threw it down the inside. And it was Hamilton went yeah, no, we're not crashing. And he turned out of it. And I think again, the reason why it seemed so called you at the time, was Hamilton wasn't forcing the issue. Verstappen didn't change throughout the year. He stayed at the same incredibly aggressive and I think needless the aggressive level. It was Hamilton that changed, and that meant things boiled over. And I think Lewis was wrong in changing. I think he acknowledges that he spoke about it later on in the years. At certain point, I was so far behind, I couldn't afford to back out of contact, no matter what happens. That made it really interesting. So what a move from Verstappen, it certainly made for an interesting race and then as you say, that strategy call from Mercedes, I think you can go and watch it, I think it's an F one TV. If you've got access to that, you can see the whole story, the decision making, you can hear the guides that is because you said the tactics team deciding. This is what we're going to do. Title style I need to know everything about it. And I know that we are. You guys up to James thousand. He's like, yeah, we are doing this. And it worked brilliantly. Alex will stay with you and talk about Monaco and again probably when people cast their minds back. They're thinking about heartbreak for a clerk. They're thinking about will nuts stuck on Bottas and they might not necessarily put that in the context of the championship battle, which was max walking away with victory Lewis a bit absent in in 7th. So Monaco Alex. Yes, this is my first Monaco Grand Prix on the ground. I've been there for formula E, it was really interesting going back for the Grand Prix, but I still haven't had the full Monaco experience. I'm particularly keen on it because again there wasn't an answer you've had a Red Bull. I don't think it's gonna happen anymore Red Bull or do I do a floater home passing on the Thursday nights obviously Fridays were a day off. But now they've changed them on a schedule. That's, I don't know if that's gonna happen anymore. So I don't know if you'll get bio called the full Monaco experience. You also see me what I thought would be invited now. But anyway, it was an under capacity because of the COVID rules. They were just wasn't the pact Monaco that you would normally see. But it was very interesting. To be able to shame because they opened the track to all the cars so that they teach and still function in the evenings. I wasn't that keen on running that track because you were literally just eating traffic. Yeah. But I walked around it and it's just fascinating. It's just really, really interesting to go and see the entire track. And it's just really, really interesting to get different perspective on it. But yeah, that weekend Martin as you say, was it was a very interesting in terms of the context of the championship because again, this was another weekend where Louis Hamilton, as you say, was just absent. He couldn't get the tires working, the softer tires on those streets. And it was Bottas that could. And how often have we been able to say that in the 5 years that they were teammates that Bottas just nailed it and was the lead Mercedes driver was Hamilton was frankly nowhere. And then when it came to the strategy calls, the Mercedes made, they were very, very aggressive, stopped in first of anybody. He just didn't work out because avatar covered them. And that's the reason why I think McLaren widow on the race because if Pierre gasly can easily stop an undercard on Lewis Hamilton and Mercedes, I don't think Ferrari wouldn't have been able to stop Max Verstappen doing the same thing in Red Bull even though he was obviously in the fastest package. So yeah, and then Sebastian vet gets them both and then Perez gets all of them. So yeah, it was Hamilton was furious on the radio. Believe what was going on. But again, this just shows you it was not the ultimate vintage Hamilton year. I think he did improve and got on top of things later on in the year. But yeah, it was certainly it kicks off the Red Bull purple patch. The handed the win by le Claire's absence. But after that, they're pretty untouchable for a very good period. And I think it was a weekend where we saw Ferrari really show just how far they've come this season. It was on those in the low speed corners where the SF 21 car really really excelled. And all weekend long there were like they were quickest in practice on Thursday and they kept saying, no, we're not really much into it. Let's not get ahead of ourselves. And even we had to chat with Lauren meckes the fiery sporting director in Abu Dhabi. So reviewing their season and he was like, I still consider Monaco to be an outlet. We don't quite know how exactly that will happen. But it was a weekend where I think Ferrari, they were just so quick and I agree, I think, yeah, the clerk would have won that race. And obviously his hoodoo on home soil and Monaco is I don't think ever finished a race there. It's not out not out 5. It's crazy, even in F two and everything like that. Yeah, it's a real, it's really strange, but yeah, it was a weekend, I think Ferrari still took a lot of positives from even if it was such a heartbreaking one. The clerk still sees that as his biggest missed opportunity for this season. But yeah, it was, again, I think we can weigh up Verstappen, did capitalize on circumstance. I thought that yeah, science and nor a state put him really good displays as well to round out the podium. I've also Valtteri Bottas. I mean, he drove a brilliant race obviously he would have been a nailed on second, had it not been for the issue at the pit stop that forced him to retire. So that was one of those races where you yeah, it was hard, hard and bought asks. The actual and again, it's not all too often this season we would rave about Valtteri Bottas's performances, but that's definitely one of them that stood out even if it ended up with zero points at the end. Luke, we described auto sport described as a feel good podium Baku. In terms of the championship battle, can a neutralized massive massive blow up for max Pirelli would later conclude, I think it was all to do with the way the tyre strategy were being run no liability there. Of course love stroll. I think her tie problems as well. And then at the restart, if we thought the final race of the year, a one lap restart was extreme..

"Thanks to Squarespace for the continued support of this show and all of relay of them. So I'm glad we ended the show on a happy note because now we got to argue with each other in the show will be over. And I'll let you decide if that means just this episode of the whole run. So we should talk F one. And so let me very briefly briefly recap the season. So if you're not an F one fan, there's been two real contenders all season long. The up and coming fellow Max Verstappen. And the young Lions. The young one. And the comparatively older statesman, even though he's not an old man by any stretch, Louis Hamilton. And Lewis assert Lewis Hamilton, I'm sorry. That's right. I would like to just clear something up for people that are not aware. Louis received his knighthood. He was already united. People think that he's now solo is Hampton. He's been solo as Hamilton for a year. They just didn't have the presentation. He received the whole presentation from Prince Charles, that kind of thing. So he was already solo as hellmann. But he fair enough. He doesn't go by like he doesn't insist. Some people insist that you call them sub, but he has been served for you. Fair enough. Okay, so sir Louis Hamilton. And the two of them throughout the season have been going back and forth. And both of them have had good luck. They've had bad luck, both of them. I would just for, again, I'm oversimplifying here, but both of them have been the recipient of some good calls from the stewards, which you could alternatively call the referees, if you will. There's been a whole bunch of drama. They've both been kind of mean to each other. They've both been kind of nice to each other, although not that much. Not really. It was mostly relatively nice to max and max has kind of been a jerk. Well, what else is max's received some like some PR training that has made better interviews? But I think my feeling overall is that he has been quite aggressive, I don't agree with his drive and sense. I think I can agree with that. And so going into the very last race of the year, they by some stroke of luck maybe genius if you're cynical. They were tied in points. And so you earn points for place you finish a race and they were absolutely to a half point tide. And so the last race was for all the marbles, right? And what I haven't said to Mike, because I wanted to say it on the show. Is that for the entire year? I've been pulling for max. Because I really just like the idea of somebody not having one, what is it? This would have been the 5th consecutive trophy for Lewis, sir Lewis, is that right? I think I'll consecutive yeah, but it would have been his 8th overall. It was the greatest of all time. Right. Which he already is, but this would have just been that last little mark that he would make. Sure. And I think he already is, but nevertheless, it is. He's the most decorated. So one way or another. So I was really pulling for max just because I thought it would be fun to have somebody else win. But over the last month or so, not that I was ever in love with Max Verstappen. BLA wasn't. But I've really fallen even deeper out of love and borderline hate with Max Verstappen. Such a jerk. He's just seems like such a jerk. And so I have to confess that, although I didn't feel strongly about who would win the final race, I was kind of home for Louis to win. Which I think would surprise you. I think you would surprise you just a little bit, because all Europe have been very staunchly. But I was actually kind of home for Louis to win. And so the race max had pole position. Is that right? I believe, so he was going to start in the front. The beginning of the race, it ended up that sir Lewis had a phenomenal start and got in first place right away. And then there was a little bit of a kerfuffle wherein depending on how you interpret it, Lewis was forced or perhaps chose to kind of go straight through a corner, so instead of turning, he went off the track went straight. And there was a little bit of arguments to whether or not that's kind of cheating. And so in F one, what you could do is you could be told or compelled to give up your place. So even though Lewis remained in first place, because he kind of went straight through a turn, he could have been compelled to give up his first place. He would have to slow down and let max pass him. And that did not happen. And I'm not really here to litigate one way or the other, perhaps Mike is. I have been super early in the race. I didn't see the final race. I was on a plane. I'm very happy actually that I didn't see the final race. I'm pleased that I did not see it because I think it would be more angry. But my feeling is like, yeah, maybe that went a bit weird, but for it being lap one, that was a resolvable situation for max. It is possible. That wasn't the end of the race. And I'm completely biased towards Lewis, but you know, max likes to push people off the track so much that maybe it's every now and then it was not too bad if somebody gets an advantage out of it. Yeah, I can understand that. I actually personally felt like Louis should have given up that place, but I could make a compelling argument that I'm wrong. Like I could make a compelling argument that it was perfectly fine as it was decided. But anyway, that was lap one as per Kate in the chat. And the rest of the race was fine. It was not terribly remarkable in my eyes, but it was fine. But a few I was like lap 54 or something that toward the end toward the end. It ended up that Nicholas Latifi had a noobs and spun out and hit the wall. And so now there was a situation where they absolutely had to bring out the safety car or an American would call to pace car. They had to bring out the safety car for some number of laps so they could clean up the debris and the wall on the edge of the track, and so on and so forth. And I'm trying to keep this brief because we don't have 17 hours to talk about it. But suffice to say there were several different options that the race control that the stewards could choose in order to complete the race. Like they could leave. It was like three or four laps left or something like that. And they could leave the safety car out for the remainder of the race, which at that point, Louis was in the lead, so Louis would finish the lead. He would be world champion, et cetera, et cetera. They could red flag the race, which I'll explain why that is important here in a moment, but they could red flag the race. Everyone gets a chance to stop, make a few changes, then bring the race back out once it's all cleared and you race for a couple of really race for a couple of laps and that's that..

"Why are you expecting that? Well, hello, Ariana and hello listeners. Got to be honest. Now I was not. Lewis Hamilton topped FP three, but I think also looking back crucially, he was looking better over a single lap in FP two, which is obviously the most representative practice session of the weekend because it takes place in that. That's why in tonight's conditions that qualifying in the race takes place. Mercedes seemed fairly confident that things were sort of swing closer together between Mercedes and Red Bull represent a bit of a step behind yesterday, but crucially ahead of the head in terms of the long run, which I'm sure we'll get on to talking about later on. Mercedes thinking things will close up and Verstappen absolutely stunned them. Ripple moved to a low down force package, skinny rear wing, trying an FP three, went ahead with that in qualifying as having said that made the car much better. Had some question marks of what was happening there wasn't feeling particularly happy, said it was up and down all through practice, but Q one felt better. It'd be a fine tuning bit of fiddling and it's got better mess and better. And yeah, absolutely stunning proposition well done to him. It is the result that he should have had from 89% of the lap in Jeddah last week when it just went wrong at the final corner there. So brilliant. Yeah, wasn't expecting that, but fair play, great result from actress having. Well, I spoke to several people in the paddock today and general consensus was that the Mercedes was looking stronger and many were predicting Lewis would take it, but of course you can never count max out and he came through it with a really impressive lap there. What did you make of Red Bull strategy today is setting the fastest times on the softs in Q two and as a result setting themselves up to start the race on this office as well and then also check out riding the tofu Mac. Do you think that they were smart strategy caused by the team? It's an interesting one. Yes and no. In terms of yes, the toe tactics worked treat. Gained yet a bit of time. But also, as we saw in Mexico, it can go badly wrong when you try things like that. And actually, if you think about Red Bull over the course season, it's sort of much more than Mercedes is often tried to be a bit too clever in terms of the way those things sort of things. But again, as I said with Verstappen, fair play were absolutely brilliantly. It was really interesting. You said in the press conference that he discussed it with Paris, but when I asked if they'd had a chance to actually practice it out on track, he said, no, they didn't. They didn't sort of coordinate it in terms of giving it a go in any of the practice sessions. They just had the confidence that they would be able to nail it in one go. And they absolutely did with their with pairs leading with that inter turn 9. What is interesting is that Verstappen doesn't think that's the reason he got proposition. He reckons it was only worth a tenth of a second. He just nailed the rest of the lap of the exit from the chicane 7 80 chicane, particularly impressive. But yeah, again, absolutely brilliant from Verstappen and from Red Bull and it is interesting to also put the same sort of question to Lewis Hamilton he got asked about it in the press conference. Why didn't Mercedes do a toe? Because it's worked out and said brilliantly repel do you look very smart, but also could have looked very bad, but they didn't. But the point about that is, is that Louis Hamilton says, well, we don't really do that because it can go to disastrously wrong as it did for Red Bull in Mexico when Perez and Stafford came across yeki tsunoda. So we have seen it go wrong for Red Bull, but it didn't this time, so fair enough. Yeah, you have a bit of starting on the softs for the race tomorrow. And that's not what Verstappen wanted to do, at least that's what he's saying. And the reason why phrases like that is because Lewis Hamilton bizarrely was like, oh, you don't normally look up at one only locks up at her money, obviously hasn't watching any of the on boards from asses, this weekend, but pages that I'm skeptical with everything and then if he really locked up, then okay, but he sort of genuinely found it quite odd. But I think if you listen to his staff's reaction, you get a real sense that he didn't want to do what he did on the medium tyres halfway through Q two. He's right. I think ideally, you would want to start on the medium tires. I'm sure we'll come to talk about later on. So yeah, it wasn't a deliberate ploy from Red Bull as far as far as I can tell. Yeah, just circumstances, but equally, they could have gone back to a new set of mediums they didn't. They would like, right, okay? That's happened. Move on to the next move on to the next situation. And then out on the softs. I think that max starting on this off tomorrow will definitely spice up that restart. How wide do you think that that decision is looking ahead to the whole duration of the race? Do you think that is a choice that could potentially backfire on them? Against of maybe yes, maybe no, but what I would say is that it's definitely not the best strategy on paper in terms of how you would want to approach the race tomorrow, but it also really, really depends on how easy it is to overtake it with these track changes. Like talking to some teams through the interesting, if you look at turn 9, the first hairpin, let that happen at the end of this first act of sector. And turn 9 as well at the opposite end of the track. The braking zones are very, very, very short, so unless you've got a massive tire delta, don't think overtaking is going to be particularly easy there. That said, at the start of the lap those sector one, if you can stay behind it on the car follow very, very closely through those sweeping downhill bends, which I ran down around track tonight. It's us an amazing facility here. Got a great view coming out of town for all the way down to that stadium section where that new turn 5 years. But anyway, with that, if you can stay close through there, stay closer to 5, overtaking should be possible with DRS into the chicane that splits up the two backtracks. But we just don't know. In terms of the soft tires and what happens in car and it potentially backfiring. Rebel will look to launch away really, really well..

"All. Good year. More driven. So Ryan McGee, this is the part of the show where I typically declare that I have another story I want the listener to know about, but I actually want you to do that job for me because you are also you contain multitudes as well. You are also our F one Formula One racing correspondent and the grand finale to this racing season is happening on Sunday and F one, obviously do the Netflix series, drive to survive and all of the drama we've seen this season. It does feel like there's a bigger footprint for this sport in America and the Internet. Then we've ever seen. So where are we on the temperature check of this sport that you also love? It has been no hyperbole needed here. One of the greatest, if not the greatest driver versus driver one two showdown in the history of the sport. Max Verstappen, 24 years old, a son of Yas, his father, who raced forever, been going to the racetrack his whole life scared of nothing, intimidated, by nothing. For the first time on U.S. soil, Max Verstappen wins the U.S. Grand Prix. Yes, guys. And then Lewis Hamilton, the old guy, right? In his late 30s now. That is the checkered flag as the winner of the Spanish Grand Prix for Lewis Hamilton who strengthens his grip then at the top of the table. They go in to the season finale. In Abu Dhabi this weekend, even in points. Winner take all. The highest finisher wins the championship. It is so rare to have seen this in any form of motor sport. If you had gone to anyone who covers motor sports in October and said that Lewis Hamilton could finish the season on a winning streak that would win this championship and overcome a seemingly at the time instrumental points lead, you just laughed. And here we are. It's almost as if the guys won 7 championships with more races than any job in the history. Right? And that's the part of it is fascinating is for stopping such a cocky kid and I mean that as a compliment. Race car drivers need to be that. But it's in his head a little bit now, the way these races have been going down and Lewis Hamilton is the grizzled old veteran now. As hard as it is for me to say, as someone who's covered him forever, but it could potentially be the greatest final race showdown in the history of Formula One. And I'm here for all of it. I also love how this sport takes us to Abu Dhabi and in order to understand what's about to happen in this all time showdown in Abu Dhabi this weekend. We also need to go back to what happened last weekend in Saudi Arabia. There's a real Carmen sandiego vibe whenever I talk to you about the sport McGee. So what happened there because this feud, this blood feud now between Max Verstappen and Lewis Hamilton, it was also at the forefront last weekend. Yeah, and honestly, this happened in the last two races. For folks who watch IndyCar racing, another open wheel sport, the rules are different. You know, in Formula One, there's a team of stewards. This group will make a call in the middle of a race and say, you raced him too hard there, or you were blocking him here, or there are certain ways that you should drive through certain corners on these racetracks. In Brazil, Lewis Hamilton attempted to go around or stop and stop him brake checking. Here goes Lewis Hamilton. He was last at the start of the sprint. He's trying to take the lead from Verstappen, but he is false wide by Verstappen. I've been stopping himself. Has to go off the track. If Verstappen drive Hamilton off the track. I do. They didn't run into him, but Mercedes will think that. And later on, Hamilton went around him again. But he's weaving all over the road and he's going to force Hamilton wide again and Hamilton can't quite get past on the entry into turn four didn't happen for him. They spent the last couple laps of the race, their teams lobbying the stewards. What are we going to do here? And the storage are like, well, you're going to race. And they will figure out what happens after. Hamilton pulls ahead of Verstappen before they get to the corner. The crowd you're absolutely wild. It is third time lucky for Lewis Hamilton. He has gone from last all the way to first. What a drive Hamilton has come home to win the São Paulo Grand Prix. He's not ready to loosen his grip on that championship trophy. Not just yet. And then we had almost a bizarre replay of that in Saudi Arabia. Max Verstappen and Lewis Hamilton, how much damage on Hamilton's Mercedes what has happened there? And Hamilton has now got past Verstappen. Hamilton is going to give us level pegging in the championship as he comes home to win the first Saudi Arabian Grand Prix. Formula One is at its best when is as much about the drama off the track as it is the racing on it. And quite frankly for years, the off track, soap operas all they have because the on track racing wasn't very good. This year, the old track race has been the best ever been. Certainly among two title contenders. And so when you throw in wheel to wheel racing and then hurt feelings and then teams lobbying for help from the stewards and all this goes on for weeks and weeks and weeks. With amazing racing and then now we're going into the finale. Dead even all points, best man wins. I mean, if this had been written into a bad Sylvester Stallone racing movie, which there is one, don't ever rent it. We would laugh it off as there's no way. And yet it has happened right here in front of us. So if the world championship is gonna get settled on Sunday. And all the stakes are about as high as anyone can imagine. How do you assess what winning the thing would mean to each of these guys individually? How different are these propositions? Even go so far as to say, what it means for just a Formula One in the future. Because it's a quote the great philosopher Ric Flair to beat the man you gotta beat the man. While Hamilton's the man, and until someone stands atop that podium with that world championship trophy that is not Lewis Hamilton, and he's won 7 of these now, tied for Michael Schumacher for most auto record, no one thought anyone would ever approach. If for stop and were to pull this off, this is a changing of the guard. This is a 24 year old with a new money team in Red Bull. That will have knocked off Lewis Hamilton. The winningest driver ever. And, you know, does Louis Hamilton win another championship? We don't know. This might be his last chance. So McGee just to be clear here at the very end, there's no award that I should also be lobbying for your vote in F one, is there? Is there anything else that we need to reform here before we declare you the Tsar of everything? I mean, you know, I mean, I'm sure there's a Hall of Fame. I could be vote on over there. So I still don't vote for the NASCAR Hall of Fame, either which all these NASCAR Hall of Fame voters will call me on their way to go vote to ask for Hall of Fame and go, hey, now what's the story on this guy? I'm like, so I'm not bitter at all. No, I haven't noticed that McGee. I can tell you have no resentment on the fact that American democracy continues to cheat off of your homework. Well, I'll tell you this, we're going to find out who actually listens to this podcast and who doesn't. Because as soon as anyone hears me complain about any of this, I can already think of a couple names or people are going to call me and go. Well, now wait a minute. So we'll see.

"This is the artist sport podcast. One of the most dramatic qualifying sessions of the season came to an end with Lewis Hamilton taking his a 103rd poll, leading a Mercedes one too after Max Verstappen burrito spectacular lap with a crash into the outside wall coming out of the final corner. The crash means that Verstappen will line up third tomorrow providing his gearbox sustained no damage. Joining me to chat for each action packed qualifying session is Alex kalanick's order sports F one editor, Alex what a qualifying session wow. Three words to describe that. Oh, goodness, me, hello, Ariana. Oh goodness me. I quite like that. Wow, yeah that's sums up pretty nicely. But I want to go for three words. Max Verstappen wow is one of my three words. Because ultimately was all about him. He reversed the trend. I mean, you look at what Louis Hamilton has done since qualifying in Brazil and in terms of the sheer incredible performances he's been pulling out and he just looked like Mercedes had found an edge. I also may have maintained this throughout my columns and also support dot com plus and in the magazine in the reports and everything. I think Red Bull will have underperformed rather. Especially in Qatar and that seems to be the case again yesterday in practice, Mercedes looked a hell of a long way ahead, although Red Bull did seem to be spending more time focusing on single app and Mercedes insisted that things were a lot closer and is actually struggling a little bit when it came to the one lap on the soft tyres. But still, said he said the edge. And yet, come qualifying, rebel nailed it, max was that an absolutely nailed it right up until the very last corner of Q three. What a shame. Actually, in the media center, I've often wondered occasionally when big instance like this happen, you hear people going and you just shocking and shocking reaction. I've never done it before but that was me in the media center today. When you hit the wall, I just couldn't believe it because the lap was perfect. Yes, it was on the edge. Yes, it almost looked out of control at times. Before we got to the final corner, but it was fantastic. He knew he was up he was up on his own personal best. He knew how far I had to come to. We knew he was ahead anyway, didn't need to be that completely on the limit of the final corner, but he went for it anyway. Just.

"Keep writing in with the fun facts. Let's end the show this way with formula the one we just had, we just had the Mexico City Grand Prix is a fine race Max Verstappen one, and Louis Hamilton got second, but the guy I want to talk about first in this segment is focusing on Sergio Pérez who got third. This weekend was such a fun opportunity to celebrate Sergio Pérez racing in his home race. Mexico City, his home, as other promotions, it's fun. I've never seen a race or so prominently at the forefront of a race, like something like welcome to my I love that. That's fantastic. It's amazing. He's the first ever Mexican driver to get on the podium in Mexico. That's monumental for the oppressor. That stuff you dream about is a kid. Is there a kid? Dreamer, like, I wanna race in Formula One and get a podium in Mexico. That's amazing for him. Well done Sergio Pérez's fantastic, especially, you gotta remember Sergio press was almost out of Formula One last year. His team replaced him with Aston Martin, change the name of their team and they replaced mister Ashton battle. Sergio Pérez almost was not even in Formula One this year. Now he's number four in the F one standings. He's just got another podium and his team Red Bull is right at the top of everyone that's fantastic. How cool is it, by the way to see Sergio driving in Mexico and actually be with a good team who had a shot, like a real shot to win the race. I mean, unlike force India slash racing point in prior years, it's just cool to see Sergio Pérez on a good team competing in his home race. Oh man, what a cool opportunity to celebrate Sarah Gil Perez, this past weekend. Now turn one of this race was wild because first of all, drama during qualifying Yuki suno to slow down Max Verstappen and Sergio Pérez. So what ended up happening was Max Verstappen started the race in third for this one. And actually in a way really helped him because it gave him a slipstream behind vajra botos. He was able to shoot forward and then Botox was not very aggressive, breaking during tournament. He.

"Zealand, Australia, every sprint car drive in North America goes to Iowa, and he beats them. While he's racing full time series. But who else can do that? Listen, we're comparing this is like the conversation about who's the very best quarterback ever. Right. This is like one of those conversations. No disrespect to anybody. But they'll all can do that. Richard Petty couldn't do that. I mean, I don't know Mario Andretti is the only other guy. People could say AJ, people say Tony, but not to this level. You know, they're great drivers. I'm not putting anybody down. Again, we're comparing the very best of the very best. Kyle Larson. In my opinion, bring somebody else to me that you can say can do all those types of disciplines at that level. I haven't seen anybody that can do it until this guy. And it's just, I'm sorry. It is what it is. Well, the one thing Mario Andretti has on his resume is a Formula One championship that might be pretty special. That would be what people would probably take issue with. And the problem now is that the world has changed so much. Kyle arsenal never get a shot. Right. He gets it ever run equipment that we would really be able to tell. Just like we're probably not going to see Max Verstappen or Lewis Hamilton run the Knoxville nationals. I mean, Louis Hamilton said he wanted to run Daytona. That would be fun to see. But what I'd like to say is lose hey, I'd like to see Luis Hamilton come around Darlington and I'd like to see Kyle Larson go romana. That would be cool. And I bet you Kyle Larson would do better Monica Lewis Hamilton would do a Darwin. All right, the gauntlet's been thrown down. Given the given the same equipment, I'm gonna make a lot of people out there. Yeah, this is gonna get spread around the world. These are great drivers. I mean, listen, listen, Louis Hamilton is a great driver. And Kyle Larson is a great driver. The versatility is amazing. I can tell you that there's no way in hail. And I won a fair amount of races. If you look at the look in the history books, you know, my name is pretty high in regard to race winners. There's no way inhale. I could have gone to the local dirt track and run with those guys in a street stock car. There's no way. And this guy goes and wins the biggest races. And he wins and in this lab we win the road courses. He wins the half mile and a half. He runs a short track. He wins all of them. On that note about dirt, one of the things that got brought up last night was about how much Larson was allowed to race on dirt by Rick Hendrick this year. Dustin long has a great comment NBC sports dot com. I encourage people to check it out about how Larsen said after he won the championship last night that I knew I had no leverage at all. Yeah when I went to meet with him and Rick and Jeff, I remember that initial meeting, it was great, Rick talked about how much he loved my driving style and this and that and you'd love to get me in his race car and then he got to the end of the meeting and he was like, you know, what's something that you want? And I was like, oh, I'm nervous. You know, I know how Rick Hendrick feels about dirt racing and stuff. This isn't. I'm hoping I'm not shoot myself in the foot right here before I ask a question. I was like, like, I'd like to raise some dirt raises. He didn't shut it down at all. You know, Jeff had mentioned to me a few times before that the culture and how they kind of handled their driver's schedule was changing. But I didn't really believe it. When he was telling me that stuff, but I threw it out there and I've gotten a race way more than I thought I would, you know when I was Ganassi in the beginning, it was nothing. I couldn't really race anything, and then it kind of morphed into 25 races in a year and then it morphed into 25 races and a cup season and I thought I would be something similar to that, but by the end of this year I'll raise probably a hundred total races. So the most I've raised in a long time, especially yo, while I'm a full-time Cup Series driver. Rick Hendrick didn't really allow drivers to race on dirt. And he checked with cliff Daniels who checked with upper management and he essentially said, we're going to let this guy have a shot at it because I can tell it means so much to him. And what he's so passionate about, what do you make about that? Because you've seen Rick Hendrick over the decades and how he operates his race teams. And this was a pretty large exception. He didn't let Casey Kane do this. You know, I'm torn. I'll say this, though, in the era where drivers were not having practices or not, you know, we can't test and all that. Does track time really help. Even though they're completely different cars, we all know the only disadvantages injury. That's the disadvantage. You've got this incredible investment, and we talked about Lewis Hamilton a little while ago. Can you imagine Lewis Hamilton? And motor sports, perhaps the biggest name in the world. Can you imagine him getting hurt in a sprint car? And he can't run his F one car. I mean, that would be a monumental shift. I mean, that would be huge. And so now you come to the cup level, is it okay for Kyle Larson to.

"But on the other hand, he called Louis Hamilton a stupid idiot in flipped him off. So who's manufacturing the drama here? I just kind of feel like if you're gonna be like Kawhi Leonard and be like, all right, I just wanna, I just wanna focus on ball here. That's one thing. But it seems to me like Verstappen is gonna turn himself into a one man Netflix show with his drummer. That was really lame out of him, but not surprising. I think he's socially awkward in the best way if you were a driver. Like I think he is that guy. I think he's just wired so differently that I mean he's nothing else is going on. Nothing else is going on except for him going ahead and winning a race. And this is, you know, just an impression from somebody who I don't know that once all of this became more popular and the sport is so popular now in the states because of the Netflix show that that's what happens is that you never really like, hey, I'll be happy to grow the sport and grow the sport. Oh, now that it's growing, and I'm getting some attention that I don't want. Well, now I don't want to do this, which is stupid. I mean, it's why any of us are even talking about this right now is getting to learn about all these guys. And when you start figuring out some of the stuff and you're watching guys fight for tenth and 11th and you're actually into it, by the way, shout out to cenote, just tough, just tough to pass. He's not going to give it. I don't know if he'll ever sign with a better team, but that guy's tough every week I always feel like guys look great cenotes in front of me now. This is a pain in the ass. But I think the max stuff was very who's the NBA comp? Who's the NBA conflict? Tony Hawk. Tony Allen's Tony Allen might be a good one. But I'd like to go older. Let me be Alvin Robertson. I'm not sure. I'm not sure I follow a particular album Robinson comparisons. But yeah, no, I completely agree with you. And also, by the way, we already had this where Merck and Ferrari decided not to be in the first season of driver to survive. And then Danny Ricardo became a worldwide sensation by being mister Netflix and then Mark was like, oh, no, no, no. We're in this now. We're in this now. And so if we're stopping once to become international superstar, you got to play the game. Man, you gotta play the media game, you gotta play the Netflix game. Tens of millions of people watch this. I just think that there's just not, I just think it's a very short sighted of him. If he wants to be, this isn't, I got to be honest with you. This is a Netflix driven thing. And so many were 400,000 people in Austin this week, Shaq, Shaq was there. Shaq was one of them. Ben seller was there. Shout out Shaq, Shaq has apparently been to some of the European races as well. He's no Netflix bandwagon guy. He's no spend stiller might be some of those other folks. But there was 400,000 people I think there were less than 300,002 years ago the last time they had this race with full capacity. That's a Netflix thing. And if you want to be a part of the narrative of F one, I kind of think you have to be in the show, bro yeah, I think max is totally wrong about this. But he would be if I were to vote or give you odds for who would be the guy that says I don't want to do this. It would be him. Who are you rooting for between max and Hamilton the last few turns? Last few laps. Hamilton. I'm rooting for Hamilton. I like Hamilton better as a personality, which is, you know, when I don't cover this as a journalist, I'm just covering as a fan and somebody and a part time F one podcaster. And so I'm rooting for a team that I like and Mercedes I'm running for a driver who I think is a more engaging personality. I think it's more interesting, like Louis talking about winning is monitoring the max talking about winning or not talking about winning whenever he wants to do. I was fascinating. The one thing I didn't know I George Russell in 2018 last week, Austin is like cherished among F one drivers. I think Lewis said it last week. It's the only city where he goes out to dinner every single night. George says that the track is actually amazing. It was built. He said it was built on a swamp, so it's very hilly and also not smooth. It's just kind of a rough ride for a lot of people. And so it's a very interesting track. And so all of that came together, but I think that just to answer your question, I thought it was an amazing race, but I actually the whole time I was just thinking about how Louis is endeared himself to America. He lives here part time. I just felt like it was a better story if Louis won. And by the way, you know, take the lead in the championship race and all that stuff when we got the aerodynamic problems of Mexico lumen. Yes, yes. Well said, great track. Great track. And then there's a couple. There's a couple of tracks later on in the 5 races left. There are a couple debutants. They've never raced there before, and they said there's a bunch of straights there, so that might favor Mercedes.

"They undercut was very powerful today. We saw when Lewis rejoined after max's super early stop when he went on the website both went for the hard tires. You know, max had a lead of like what 6.7 seconds at that point. Then we saw Lewis carve into that lead, but the reason max had got 6.7 seconds was he pushed super hard on that first set of hard tires that he'd switched to after his first stop. So when it came to that, so not only they triggered early on that one, they realized on the set of hards that suddenly they were going to have to trigger early on this too, because, you know, he was complaining that he was losing grip, Lewis was coming back at him hard, you know, the gap was under three seconds when max had pitted for the second time on lap 30, so he had that 26 lap brands to finish. Lewis obviously went longer, 7 laps longer, the gap was now 8 out to 8.8 seconds, but this time max had that knowledge that Christian Horner said after the race that the tires are pretty much down to the canvas when they took those first set of hards off they knew that max this time should really ease into the set. He didn't push so hard he tried he managed it really to perfection. I think that's what really won them the race today. It was the trigger to get the undercut to get the track position in the first place, and then max is lasting was genius in the way that he didn't push too hard, and then when he had to because Louis was coming back and back and back and we saw the got to under one second right in those last couple of laps, then he put the hammer down, then he just had just enough in those tires to keep that advantage. Keep Lewis behind, because if Lewis had got DRS, you know, for one or two laps, he probably would have been toast. So, you know, that was the mission critical as Seth said they really did pull that off today. It was a great win for Red Bull. It was a brilliant win, and it had us on the edge of our seats until the very, very end. I mean, Seth, did you think that Lewis Hamilton was going to be able to take the victory? Was there a moment where you thought yeah, he's got this in the bag or did you think that Red Bull looked confident and secure in those final laps as Hamilton was chasing them down? Okay, so let's look at this. This was a little hand like I said, this is Louis Hamilton's backyard. He's got 5 wins at coda. The numbers are in his favor to have won this race today. You know, but like we've been talking about Red Bull have come, you know, they brought the thunder this weekend. You know, they literally rode the bull into the sunset. It was a showdown between the two. You know, I mean, and we really did think that Lewis was going to close in. You know, in the last three laps, we saw those numbers start to tick down. We got down to all of Leicester second, just in the DRS range, but just for some reason, the DRS did not open. He was in he was just inside outside the zone, but then it went back up to one second. And that's just that I think that was that it was that thin of a margin that he needed that. You know, to try to close in on max for staff, but it just wasn't able to do it. So it was a big surprise. I think it was a shock to a lot of people to see Red Bull be able to take it to Mercedes and take it to Louis Hamilton on pretty much his home turf. And take a crucial victory that may end up being a deciding factor at the end of the season. As you've mentioned there are a few times, this is what many consider to be Mercedes stomping around going into this weekend. I think most people were expecting Mercedes to be dominant as they have been in prior years. And I know that when I spoke to Alex Callen orchis, or just watch Grand Prix editor yesterday, I said to him were you expecting Max Verstappen to even be on pole yesterday coming into this weekend? And he said, absolutely not. But here we are at the end of the race weekend and Max Verstappen and Red Bull have managed to take this victory. You've said already stuff how critical you think is Charles, what do you make of that? Is this a point where Mercedes and Lewis Hamilton are probably going to start start to worry a little bit that Red Bull are so dominant at these tracks that we are typically used to being Mercedes dominant tracks. Do you think this is a pivotal moment in this championship fight? I think that it will have to wait and see how pivotal it was. It was certainly a brilliant statement of intent from Red Bull to come on to a track where, you know, Mercedes has this fantastic track record as we can see it was only by 1.3 seconds and the lead change in a couple of times during the race. So it wasn't exactly that they came here and blew Mercedes away. However, they did take poll by a couple of tents and they did win the race by a small margin. So it's definitely one feather in the cap for Red Bull. And maybe we'll go to Mexico and suddenly Mercedes will turn the tables back as, you know, we expect Mexico to be a Red Bull track. One thing we did talk a lot about coming into this race was the Mercedes having that kind of squatting suspension, the way that they were able to stall out their diffuser that we saw in Turkey, a lot of that was made over this weekend. Austin is just one of those tracks because it's so bumpy and you've got so many high speed corners. I'm not sure that kind of Mercedes system was quite so effective and again, we didn't really get to see that wheel to wheel fight apart from the first runs to the corner where they were side by side. So maybe these will come back in Mexico, maybe with that system you know, big long straight in Mexico is absolutely huge. They could benefit from that again. So I think this one's basically going to run and run and run and we've got a few curveballs coming up with Qatar, Saudi Arabia. New tracks that people just haven't been to before, they're not race Formula One cars around these tracks before. So it's, you know, it's literally anyone's guess. So all the teams are going to be working so hard with their simulation tools to make sure they're in good shape going into all of these final few races. You know, it's really it's the endgame time now. To Charles's point, we've got some unknown factors in there. But we do know that Lewis is very strong when it comes to new tracks. You know, he has a very impressive record when it comes to inaugural races and new tracks, you know, obviously with coda, you know, and various others that he so that may play a factor into that too as well. But the question I think is going to be how far is rip is going to be. By the time we get to Saudi Arabia, by the time we get the guitar because the way things are just swinging right now, that they have to Mercedes has to find a way to claw back a little bit from this. This deficit because at the time is running out. But I think these two these two unknown factors are going to produce something very exciting to similar to what we saw coded a day. Well, I know that I'm very very excited to see how they shake things up because this battle that we have at the top of the championship is just so, so, so close and gripping throughout the year. And like we've seen, it just keeps throwing it surprises our way, which is fantastic for all of the fans who watch and love this sport..

"Mercedes, Mercedes has the most money, the best car, they're dominant. Finally, this year, by the way, Red Bull is challenged Mercedes, but that's a new development in Formula One for years. Mercedes had the best car every single year. And usually, with 6, 7, 8, races left in the year. Lewis Hamilton was so far ahead, he'd already won the world title. Because he dominated for years. And people often discredit Lewis Hamilton by saying that the only reason he won because was because he was driving a Mercedes car. And that's incredibly disrespectful to Lewis Hamilton. Again, you needed both. And we're seeing this year when it's a little more even playing field between Max Verstappen and Louis Hamilton. Red Bull can finally challenge Mercedes. They've got a better car. Oh, even when he's challenged Lewis is still really good. It's because he's like one of the best ever to drive a Formula One car. You can't.

And then Riccardo, who, you know, such a lockable character on the greed, got to say the shoei on the podium as well for a win. And Monza is just one of those special podiums too. So, you know, great place for him to win. That's for sure. Absolutely. Fantastic to see the Shirley back. And great as well for the record, obviously, does that make Italian heritage? You spoke a bit talent as well after the race. That rather the crowd of no end, I'm sure he said some very nice things about them. Yeah, it's just a real feel good win. It's a win that a driver like Ricardo really needed because, you know, he's been doing better, but he needed a podium. He needed a good result, but to get a wing to get McLaren's first win if this new McLaren Mercedes era is massive for them. It's going to provide huge momentum for them going into 2022. But the thing is as well. I mean, obviously, the elephant in the room is that Hamilton has stopped and did they did crash out of the race, but Tom they were genuinely holding both of them up. Ricardo was ahead of Verstappen, Lando was ahead of Louis Hamilton, but both were holding them up and doing so successfully. They never they never really had to get the elbows out properly possibly a few times. So they had legitimately had incredible pace this race. Yeah, join me to talk about the crash course we got on stage. We'll do that after we do a little about McLaren. Yeah, absolutely. I'm more than happy to watch everyone about the camera and the two minutes. Yeah, what a race. You know, local said, first one, two since Canada in 2010.

Never really under threat, especially with the instant which we'll get onto in a moment. And his teammate was super as well. Lando was really mature.

I knew it's a brother. But then obviously I wasn't Michael. But you're reminded me a lot of that whereas we got an opportunity here for some really good points. And they help position they held off enough from Bottas and Perez who was certainly behind.

Track is about all his work with sort of hamilton commission and we race as one and all of f one's plans around that to improve diversity and inclusion within our sport and make it more represents to the world as a whole and i think that's why lewis is focused really is right now but he did say that the fight with stopping in this year has really sort of invigorated him even more. He's loved it. He's enjoyed it so much. And he said the replica putting away now but that early part of the season where they were neck and neck he said he absolutely loved that fight. And i think that has made a bit of a spring bacne step and yeah. He's going to be really curious. Gaze hands on two thousand eighteen mercedes and just see what they can do in terms of. Who is team is. Yeah it is so tough. Because i think the other issue is that i think you want stability moving forward and i think the idea of changing the lineup. Only a year into the regulations might seem a little bit sort of too too much knee-jerk reactions things if things don't quite work out if say what asses gets on for another year and he doesn't quite that things right with the car but similarly george russell main spends another year williams and then all of a sudden he's he's routes it up and williams. Mike brady good next year. We've seen the progression. They've been making. And i think the the thing mercedes really missing at the moment is like a halfway house. They don't have what would have been a force india in the past where they were able to. You saw a two thousand sixteen off on ver- lime at manner and it was basically case right. Who has better will get force in. India drive and akamas batches. They moved them on up. And yeah there's not. There's not that opportunity anymore mercedes and georgia said look. I want a multi. Do whatever i do next year. So i don't know do mercedes. Do they think less. Keep joy for another couple of years. Williams hope that williams come good. Cape lewis advisory together. And i mean louis. He said he said yesterday. I don't wanna be racing. Unfortunately he'll be a month away from telling thirty nine by the time this contract is signed expires. So we're getting close to the end. But who knows if it invigorates in he might wanna rating so. It's really difficult. And i think that it's very hard to sort of. Just keep george. Just ticking along and yeah williams next year. They might make a huge step for they might be that sorta midfield halfway house team. That mercedes come work with and it'd be a really good sort of training ground and proving ground for george but also you see forms like this weekend i mean. How often can you sort of keep saying well. Okay soon scene and so that drivers like well. You know what i need to. I need spread my wings. Anita opportunity because yeah. I don't think there would be any shortage of teams. That would be thinking. Let's try and snap him up. In in case mercedes were to let him go by. Don't think they will. I think that. Yeah i think on pure performance. I think you've just got to i think. Yeah it's got to be george for next year right now and i really. I'm ready tolan saying that. Because i'm a big fan fan boy found. I really appreciate what you bought us. Does i think he's an excellent drive. I think he's been a brilliant teammate. Four louis hamilton and has played a huge role in all the sadie success and he said on on saturday said if it were to be he didn't see mercedes for next year he would want stand f. one even if the options look very limited.

Yeah i think mercedes unless they are that sort of worried about breaking this team unit and keeping things they won't keep things to save as the combat though some vowed serie. I can't see any reason right now to not per george in that car twenty twenty new regulations. Actually i think that's a really good time to make change and say this cycle is over is the star of a new one unless bring in some fresh blood. What a particular mercedes find themselves in. I know that everyone is equally waiting for the news of who they will pick. And i'm looking forward to the podcast record. When they do announced that decision we are now over time so unfortunately not going to make our way through the rest of the grid licks prepared rundown though should we just do a quick down. Yeah i know what nicklaus tv does week. He's making deals week when we got to latifi and it was like. Oh no this is just made my evening luke. Please take it away. We've done one through eight. So gosling ninth good track position but again he was on that to stop strategy so that really did cost him in the end. 'cause back a made up a lot of time in in that final stint on a fresh set of hard wasn't quite enough. Cash leclerc and ricardo. So he finished seven tenths of a second off fernando alonzo intent. We covered off. See one that great battle with george russell. Appoint for our pain very good. All things considered george heartbreak. We've talked about yukie. Nobu sonoda bit of a weird racy at two five second time penalties. For cutting the white line at entry same thing twice. He would have thought it would learn from that he struggled with tom. Throughout a wasn't able quite make things up again. He was on the to stop like ouseley as well. So so in is in a bit of a pickle. Same philosophy i think eight made of really really good star. He was up there in the points early on again. He was on to stop any traffic when he pitted for that. First how ties and back compromises..
