When is the belgian grown Spa when james hunt's was mia ofter particularly on lines. And i think you'll brabham Todd from the race and so inside of what you can sign next to demari what that was. Obviously you know there wasn't planning the tool. But how much did murray help you in that first. That first instance then afterwards. 'cause you mentioned him give you a bit of advice but was he is a cheetah as you like did he let possibly all not in history. Because i was a you know a formula one driver is literally dropped out of rice and My drennan still fighting. When the disappointment grows at the same rate and not wilkin of bbc at the time was looking for any driver that dropped out of the race could speak english and go with mary. 'cause i e giants hunt was missing in action so and i'm do remember my manager time afterwards saying why didn't you stay there longer. It was going so well. You should have stayed But i was thinking about getting the hell out of bed before the traffic traffic But then i had another chance to contact ninety five when i had Yet shot half alesia. Dr didn i and so on the racists. Where i wasn't driving i would assume But then are on the saturday. I'd be in the years comfortable on the sunday. The bbc books. So that's where i have. I learn to work with married over an an understand television show that perhaps ended my phone on career early because if at the end of ninety six brundle stopping formula one driving. He's going to become a common tyrone on tv and it kinda turned It's interesting isn't it. How life works. Is you never quite round the corner of the mari was very Is well known for his marines. Which i'm sure anyone listening watching a real ten just off the top of the head of the ads. I mean you'll sort of developing a few you'll sell the the brundle 'isms they're not marias seen Hugging the a favorite grounded in bits and pieces of that it must be quite satisfying. Is this a sign that the public is a sign of endearment from the public in this world of social media in kind of a sort of hatred. Yes it is lovely when people come up to you and say how much you've given them over the years were wedding. That used to be allowed to come up to An approach in an airport or a underground in london or something but Let's hope we get back to those days. But yeah the reason is is because huma is a great way of communicating and one liners people remember. One line is the putman and relevant to what's going on track. They'll talk about it. They'll they'll occasionally. I'll get replayed back to me and obviously they. They can chinese whispers. They ended up being different to the word. You use meaning quite something else. But it is. And i've also noticed the people have very different sense of humors of course and they remember completely different things but it is. You gotta get information over bite size pieces. Little shiny magpie pieces that people wanna grab and take away with them. Because if you do a three minute monologue on how peretti ties work or don't and the meaning of life they just people's heads just turn off to you gotta give them the information in and bite sized bits. The obviously one of the lodge sort of things nine for his the gridlock Which i think kind of it wasn't a hugely plan saying it just seems to be developed. I think you said it makes us to make you nervous. Does it still make you nervous. Not section eight does. It's the only thing ready that gives me so. The live television excites me. So i always think is about thirty percents exciting to be on the grid with with live television as a with being a driver and often we've got two or three people talking are s while we're while we're doing the grid Somebody giving me a hard countdown producing and somebody else saying. Saying you know charlie humming. Talk up the front gun talk to them. And then i gotta find my next day my go to think of a question. Go to listen to the onset because that's the biggest crime if they say something really big can you. You didn't want a listing and workout where. I'm going to go next. So i like that challenge and it makes me nervous. Because it's eight nine minutes of live television unscripted unrehearsed and just go. Everybody might just sit back and wait for me to look a complete idiot in front of millions of people around the world which frequently do so it does make me nervous but mostly because i it smiletree go. I do not recognize that person interrupts. Three will champions having a conversation together. Enjoying the grade and i go barging in and an interrupted or some movie star. Just want to talk to me. Awesome football agents. Only speak spanish or something like that. But i had some classically good moments on the great and some classically classically bad ones. But i've never watched one. I hate i could better. What should on the telly anyway. I've i've never said this. So far through this pandemic. But i'm really pleased at an after at moment really pleased but by equally. I'll be really pleased when i'm allowed to do again talking about what does jensen. Dc story about serve making you watch a growing profits on my second but as one of the wonderful lines i found. This must be you on a grid walk and you said there's a story that justin bieber might be on the grid so to avoid it. If we get jobs something. I found the lines. One hundred zero without but if it is wonderful yeah is i get cheeky down. I get ready ready cheeky And i think there is that it is that silence i need. I need to fail if you just if you just practiced talking for nine minutes with not knowing any particular it's going to happen. Next is quite a long time..

"Gone. They do have tremendous g force now under breaking and lateral and accelerated and the car. Still very hot inside with the confined space in so many heat sources around you but I think yeah that they're sort of analog days when that's when I think the driver had a greater input into the overall performance of a okay and final question from me about saying I think I know the answer to this but the car that you most enjoy driving of the fifty you've driven. Oh that's a good question because they've will been great cars and underprivileged to try them. It's actually one we haven't talked about witches Senna's Lotus Ninety eight t Reynaud to buy one point five liter beautifully put together by Patrick. Morgan and I have joining to we. Were doing a Santa Fe chicken and we had his told when someone all sorts. Things I had is only full black beauty and I think I did. Two thirds of a grown pre distance. That day in the Cup I turned up it was being warmed up in that Brenno turbo of that day. Boop BOOP BOOP boop assigned the pets and taking off Outta Pierce the wonderful view of the track. Cau- just superb. That was quite something that caused the grunt that it had the grip physical very physical car to drive though but you fell you sitting over the front axle. Could you probably were back then? They used to put the drive. It's why most of my era who survived limp. Because we put right to the front of the car to counterbalance the way to the engine and in an your feet were right out there. But that's how it. Fao As you turn the steering wheel in that the just on a you you felt you sort of moved into the corner. You transitioned into towards the apex as part of the Front axle. A little bit but that was a beautiful Cobb. The card want to race would be the mistake. The current Mercedes hybrid car as is aspects. I don't like about them. You spend your racing career trying to improve our as an hours and days to engineer and testing testing testing up Dean sets ties robots and trying to improve your car little and then you jump into car. That's like a spaceship and is move so fast forward. You realize you're just wasting your time trying to find a tenth of a second by changing the front springs by fifty pounds or something like that so you. You crave performance in grip and balanced so. You'd always cry if the latest. 'cause I so I understand why the is loved. These caused the problem. Is that any twenty people in the world can appreciate unlucky people like me. You get to drive Mackay's he can appreciate just how amazing they are sometimes a brilliant answer and I love your passion moten. Thank you so much for your time. And what a trip down memory lane?

"Qualifying trim and using qualifying tyres. The cause a fiercely demanding to drive and the car that encapsulates the era best of all is the McLaren m four full from nine thousand nine hundred thousand eight. I remember you driving the car in Brazil last year Martin. Many of the people watching put crying. That was a wonderful opportunity. Because the first from Gob I ever drove was the peaceful one. Nine thousand nine hundred eighty three when Senate and San Stephane Bello for myself. Were invited long ago. Which was pretty special and my fifty Fourth Cau- not hopefully not my last was the full four. Actually the way it's turned out. I wanted to drive that car. It'd been on along with the Gurney. Veto was lake The one I haven't driven so far is ninety two Williams at W. Fourteen Bay. I think it is. That was the bane of my life. When I was a Benetton works driver otherwise it was so dominant that yet sort of took the shine off. Yeh Benetton but the MP for Honda. I mean six at about six hundred fifty host very low line. Steve Nichols Carbide low. Line car and you felt that you'd like you're lying down in it again Quite high about I'M. I'm one me to seventy three five feet. Eight and seventy nine kilos. Plus if I'd have been any big a couldn't go into car senate was about the same size as me. I couldn't go. Anything was bill to minimal. Is Elbows needed to fit somewhere and we ran in the shenanigans. We had to go through where we on the track where we know the Ryan was coming. It had one set of wheels. Rain was threatened. Heavy rain was threatened so to get ties. Change to wet dry. There's about three or four hour job so we had to commit to slicks with rain. It was right near we Whether forecast right put the slicks on three hours later this are on because you just don't have loads of wheel sitting around for 'cause like that and thank God it was dry. I was terrified literally in this precious car in Incentives Back Garden in in San Paolo into law. A few miles from ways gray is where he won races for McLaren and it was just the most brilliant opportunity in Cobb won fifteen out of sixteen races six times. It was over a second faster than the rest of the failed in qualifying at any full. Retirement's it was the most extraordinary and the thing is. I had a small hand in. What didn't win sixteen sixteen but I'm not sure if we got time to go into the store. I've got a couple of questions about it. In that Gordon Murray. Who was the technical director at McLaren in eighty-eight told me once that that MP for four is just an evolution of the Brabham bt fifty five from nineteen eighty six? Which was a very low line car yet. I'm one of the things deryck work said he struggled within that Brabham was. He said he couldn't breathe. Because of the driving position. Can you relate to what Derek was saying having driven the car now yes? I don't think it was quite is extreme as the problem because then they should have had the chin bar that helmet literally pressed into the brush. Play an an extreme sort of laid-back position. It was towards that way Also you feel like you such wonderful view because you've got this aspect screen and you go such wonderful view of the race track and the curbs and the and the apex is you are again. You were sitting long way out of it because it wasn't a whole lot to the car but it just didn't it but if again if you look at the aero straight lines in the side pods but it's one of those it's a piece of art should be on a wall in a museum somewhere One of them because it it just so utterly beautiful nothing on it. That didn't need to be there. No twists and turns now hundred pace barge boards. What hanging off the side of it. The purity of the car on the way in the way drove and gave quite pushing back when that Honda came to life. It was just all at one. The car and driving vision was compromised. But you could get round it. What was the single most impressive thing about the car? I would say how together it all fell chassis aero engine gearbox just a very together racing car you immediately fell you could build on every lap every corner as so often happens with these things you know show. Will we go out when we get out? Whatever knows I got six right laps or something and you think okay. Next time I'M GONNA come through their gear up name so I'm I'm not going to break next on. I'm not going to break it to you just immediately. Stop the racing driver stuff. Even though you're making a piece of television owned you're protecting our ready precious car. It just makes you feel like you know getting ready to go racing. What a wonderful car. One final question about the eighty S. Something you touched on. Actually the top was the six wheeled Williams the W. O. A. B. I read the Frank. Dernie said it was going to be. Williams is answer to not having a turbo engine but what an extraordinary looking car. What are your memories of it? My memories at wonderful traction unsurprisingly with full rear wheels is quite heavy quite long car with massive interior on Cyprus. Because it's so long and I was trying to compare it with the car. I ran at the same time for zero zero twelve and I think it would have. It was heavy with all the extra transmission in length. And what have you? But then we're going to have to do something about that but I think a certainly would actually smashed debates any other. Nomi aspirated calls around into pice driveability and didn't need any front wings so the central pressure underneath was so good. Can you imagine how good the racing would be if he didn't have you know? We keep changing the front wings on the current cars to try to improve racing. This thing didn't even need front wing a tool. So you've gotta follow so closely it would have been really quick but I suspect in the end the DMV would have run asked in quite quickly against the turbos and it wasn't enough to stop Jones going into retirement. Was He tested it in November of eighty one and then disappeared off. Australia didn't come home. What didn't come back should I? Yeah the nineteen. Nine hundred. Ninety s characterized by the rise in multiculturalism and international scandals. Remember the name Monica Lewinsky. The first Harry Potter Stories published and Titanic is the decades highest grossing film in F one normally aspirated engines of the GNOME. Ferrari Com oh so close to a world driver's title with Alain Prost while the deaths of Roland ratzenberger and at and senator horrify the watching world. Martin you raced a lot of cars in the ninety s. Which was your favorite and why a easy answer really is the of the ones that. I raced is the B one nine two from Benetton. We used it from the Spanish growing premium woods. I remember I went to test dot remember it so son going around. We have to be one nine one. We've been using and go down the Cau- understood Ross Brawn Simmons to woken Joel Eagerly. Waiting to hear from me. What it was is is very good. Coffee is good is is a step forward and it was a step forward. I mean the one nine one was fine him. And you can't say there was a whole Lotta new bits on the one nine two. She's better Carl round ready with the HP engine for hp the news good but it was a very analog car manual shift no power steering throttle cable. No electric throw anything like that. It was just a very together straightforward bracing car where you could go a bit like a Formula Ford you could go to an event and he might tweak the spring rates or you might tweet the robust if NASA Lupe and fine tune it. It was a great f one car for every night. The problem is it was up against a Williams with a paddle shift gearbox. And they would've had back there and they must have had of course active suspension an economy. That was so massively more complex and electron Than our car. We did keep inside from time to time. She won the ninety two. Spa In pre which I should have won had pitted a lap Lia and I should win the Canadian Grand Prix and had the transmission filed Bu- scored eleven podiums in the cost.

"Drivable. No doubt about it added. We had to push away that beautiful Thailand on. It was scoped around the fuel time because that was a key aspect of all of these. 'cause you're sitting in a lot of fuel the outstanding challenge in that although I found a easier to reset my brain on it was that the break and the throat of the wrong way round or the other way round Shall we say in? The break was on the right and the throttle in the Middle. So when you find out if it also again a little bit to slide in and you panicked you would immediately defoe to pressing what you thought was hit. Throttling go even faster so you really did have to change. Cheer for that one and quite quickly getting into the hang of you know but as with so many of the cause of that phase it was getting it in the right gear in an and and getting into corner was was dominant parts of the lab. But there's no doubt about it. The two fifty was a Brady Nimble. Great Little Car. I mean it didn't feel as engineered is the might of that Mercedes and it had a bit less power but it was. I could understand why. Es Steady Mass described. Also the best front engine ever drive. There's one more front engine cartilage ask you about. And that's Mike Hawthorn's nineteen fifty eight Ferrari Dino two four six the car in which he beats sterling to the championship by one point. How was that? How did it compare to? The MASERATI fell slightly more together It was a nineteen sixty car of course in fifth late fifties into state. Sweet little engine. In that to forsakes. It was Was at two point. Four lead to V six that one and there again very driveable feature on Michael Thoughts. I drove that in a bow tie and led the Jackie as always used to race and the outstanding aspect of this causes the visibility. You have of the right track. 'cause you sit on them rather than in them and so you feel a total command lovely lil gearbox gave me a lot of confidence straight away even though the track was the wet when. I drove that car over. Stud and anytime you drive. A Ferrari is great a member there was the KAVA had the prop shaft coming sort of horror a dislike angle through the cockpit and again with all of this front engine cars. You can't help but feel you're sitting on a little C- With your legs splayed out and you're sensitive parts extremely exposed to Gabe boxes and prop shafts universal joins just underneath you and he doesn't oh come. Apo- bats That's GONNA ruin the rest of my life if it doesn't kill me because you do feel that you know you're sitting on top of a lot of turning pots and again just few every way own around you but him abusive Simplicity with the controls with the dial Dashboard Issa great responsibility. When people let you in this causes because they trust you trust that you went crash I did take the front wing offer for India. Wants the only time ever damaged any of those fifty forecast is that I've driven different. F One cars. But you won't crash it. You won't ever river. You ended up dropping the clutch and trying to do practice starts or something like that you they they put a. Lotta trust in you that you will hand it back in the same condition that you were giving it as a great privilege. 'cause when I drove the Bruin Goodwood? They said to me. Please don't do doughnuts the bottom or the top whatever. We have one of everything for this car. And it's on so if you evading goes wrong it will run and we will disappoint. People are pressure just one quick question about a front engine cars in general today. They require a different style to a rear engine. Co. Is it a lot more tail. Happy Yeah they did. Tend to be pretty towel happy. No undisturbedly knows front sliding you might imagine. And I think that's because they probably set them up to get whatever the straight six strata eight vitro avoid it was in the front of it into the corners skinny tires. So you even though you didn't really have a hell of a horse power. You had enough to break the release in the car and Stereo on the start on the two fifty f. You used the throttle pedal as much as the steering wheel to turn the car. Let's go onto the one thousand nine hundred. Sixty s the swinging sixties. When anything seems possible man walked on the moon for the first time England win the World Cup the Beatles are idolized on both sides of the Atlantic and the first heart transplant takes place in F one. It's the decade of unstoppable innovation. Engines go from front to back and for some people. Driving isn't enough Jack. Brabham and Bruce McLaren build their own cars as does Dan Gurney. And Martin you've driven gurneys Eagle Mark. One thousand nine hundred sixty six sixty seven beautiful car of that's got to be the most beautiful f one car. Hasn't it in existence that blue e go with sort of the beacon and the V twelve motor the West like the twelve in the back Dan goody himself won the Belgian Grand Prix. And my guys sky said to me right so you know. We getting near towards fifty cars at this point. Let's talk about the ones you really want to drive. And that was really quite high on my list because it's just such a stunning looking Cau- and so I find out who owned it is in America and I called them and said is there any chance when I'm over in all stay something can I is rain. Chance we come round and how to drive that cough television sky if one and they're like yeah sure would be gray as you probably never heard of me John. You Know I. I love him. Yet we know your name so wonderfully it was coming our way over to the UK for Goodwood. So I got to drive down. And Sterling's T. Fifty three as well for good met Cuba. They go to for good measure up the hill. A goodwood so yes absolutely. It couldn't have been puffing timing for my call and I sat in him. Dan Gurney was a very tall man and that car was built for human surprisingly so I could reach the pedals and we pack me out with some foam. Remember you in this car. Yeah as so I could reach the pedals and the wheel but as I accelerate off the line. Just sunk back into all of this because it had a fed to speed and you always want to put a good show. Won't the crowd there at goodwood up the hill and Iran is. I was going further for the back. Couldn't reach the pedals and couldn't reach hysteria everytime I accelerated at heart so we managed to so that our little bit. But the sound of it now really key thing is when you in any racing tar sands Different to what? It does outside because inside. A lot of the sound is dominated by the mechanical turning over the engine camshafts extended combustion rarely threw the ball so whatever general mechanical noise and something like a DSP Qazi from one engines go hi Ni distinctive so the sound and feel to it and the feedback which when you outside car dominated by the exhaust note that you can hear rather than the mechanical so but even even I could hear The v Twelve rasp of that as those going up the hill I mean what a privilege drive that guy just is sort of thing.

"Martin is great to have you on the show. Good Hope everybody's well in the friends and family and colleagues Strange times we're going through a little bit stir crazy stuck hung. I'm so used to circulate in the world as a driver or with the TV or whatever we do alot. I've been very lucky to be with a long time with the family in Norfolk now. What a landmark moment is the seventieth anniversary of Formula One that seven decades of inspiration and innovation and as well as your one hundred and fifty eight races that you did in Formula One and those nine podiums evil side driven an incredible number formula. One cars haven't you? What's the total? Now it's fifty four. A sneaky. Suspicion is one more that I drove a goodwood widow such light but over the years as either I raced in them or I've since driven them for TV features or up the hill at Goodwood magazine features. Yep I've been very lucky in I've been in calls from all of those decades and it's fascinating to compare them on the rate of change particularly the great cars that I've driven own had one defining factor and that they had this beautiful balance. This predictability driveability. You could feel the really truly great. Cows won't to work with the driver some of them pretty quicky in terms of gearboxes and pedals and the way he sits in them but generally speaking. You've always understood why turned out to be a winning car. And has the driver always wanted the same thing from a car? Did our mental Fangio want the same thing in the fifties? That Lewis Hamilton wants today. I think fundamentally a challenge is the same. You have mostly four wheels. Did drive a sixth grader? Williams in there you find the limit of the grip on you drive to it as long as you can as as hobby as fast as you can. And there's a device to turn the from Wales school disturbing whale some kind of mechanism to shift the gays. And that is it. You drive to or just over the limit of that grip. You won't balance predictability you you if you can you? Don't one the cost surprise you because you'll crash too often so yes. I think the absolute basics of remained. Exactly the same. It's just the drivers of had to finish this style through the decades to go and find the optimum place for the tools that have got available and the way the cost shift gear or the way they put the power down particularly driveability reliability. One thing. I've noticed this even certainly through the phase where I was a racer through to today where I drive them for scaife. One is a much better the front end of the 'cause you know you. We went through various stages of understood most of our careers A few decades ago now the cause really do stick to the road. You turn the wheel a proportional response from the steering wheel. Let's start by looking at the nineteen fifties the Second World War is over but it continues to cast a long shadow while Europe is reconstructed under the Marshall Plan. But entertainment is on the rise this decade marks the arrival of Elvis Presley Marilyn Monroe and Humphrey Bogart and spoil is once again Durica. In formula won the world championship is born in one thousand nine hundred fifty Italian teams dominate the early years including Ferrari who continue to be a leading light today and there's another similarity today. The dominance of Mercedes Martin. You started your career in touring cars actually in the same team as Stirling Moss. Let's begin by talking about the car. In which sterling won his first Grand Prix in one thousand nine hundred fifty five the Mercedes? W One nine six. What was that? Like a driven versions over a Mercedes used to bring along what they called their old time as to you grown pre and. They asked me to drive them from time to time. I remember driving the w one nine. Six at SPA was so sprinkling rain. And Y'ALL CAN. Mass was driving the pace car at the time and I didn't realize what he was supposed to be phoned me out in the five leads to. Sec super-duper safe the pace coughing. And I went round ups enjoying it so much that when I eventually came back into the paint ambushes Rouge where restoring the cause. Running the cost from he turned up about a minute later. Red Face like puffing. It'd been trying to keep up with Matt now. Guess was to wait for him. But it just shows you the speed of this. 'cause so they narrow the slippery didn't have a huge amount of power. So the two hundred and fifty horsepower such like but they were so good through the air. They gathered speed so quickly. You sit astride them and it. It's really odd in the beginning house. Played Out your legs. Our with a clutch pedal ones this massive transmission tunnel and then the brake and throttle on the other side. The first and enduring challenge of driving at w one nine six is the Gabe folks. Because it's sort of Meriden how you'd normally expect it to be in the in a normal manual. If you went from second third you'd sort of Dogleg from the bottom of the Gabes across an up without beginning second to fifth in a w one nine six and you really have to put a different chip in your brain to get used to the box. And as you're traveling around I also then drove the the one nine six streamline type Monza with Lewis at Silverstone last year Sanca with the with the body work on the the only grown precor one three races streamline to win races with covered wheels. Because we don't normally single seats Open wheels isn't that an goes Fangio. Not Duly Leo drums out when bent the front of that stream liner at Silverstone. Does he couldn't really see the extremities of the Cobb Ignore Asleep beautiful. They are unquestionably priceless. Quite a known on a responsibility to drive a car dot on off you go and I remember slithering around spa around silver in those two and immediately use especially spa as I was going to be blowing Shimon so full will drifting you immediately realize vulnerable you are. You haven't gone seatbelts. All you got no crushed Should you sitting astride this transmission tunnel? You know if you hit something how you just submarine done into the copay and that after Po. You often awards in quite quickly realized that if you if it was going to stop to go wrong jump up. I could see why they did that. I could see why they hope to be thrown clear of the car if it crashed because it was your best chance to survive. So you immediately felt those kinds of vulnerabilities and challenges and only Gabe outside. I tried to give Lewis a heads up the third and fifth for up and second and fourth is down because yes you can go second to fifth really easily and it is yet. The scary thing is easy to go fifth. Two seconds an over the engine lives like it won't be a problem and then I drove the cough. Said he was sort of taking the Mickey out a little bit because I was fumbling the gays as I came pasta. The pits the first couple of times trying to remember where these guys were and of course he got into the exactly the same thing. You can contri- After that. So just challenging and brilliant. Sorry Very Long too short question of brilliant answer and can you see wide that call one nine of the twelve races entered. I think it was ahead of his time. Wasn't that day we using direct fuel injection from the MESSERSCHMITT? A think warplanes. I mean it was just a piece of engineering For the time yes I can see why it won so many races it was just so comprehensively engineered. It was only two liters a straight eat but sadly because of the nineteen fifty five lemon crash. Everything Mercedes withdrew at the end of that year. Didn't they and otherwise I think would go on too much great things but he comes back to the point. I made earlier on about the balance. And about the driveability commanding position. You have from the cockpit and I can see why just ran and hid in the distance fangio jumped ship from Maserati to Said's made nineteen fifty four and then he went on later to say that the Mercedes w one nine six wasn't has nice to drive the Maserati to fifty f. Which is another car you've driven. Can you compare and contrast the two for us? Yeah fifty with fell a much smaller car. Much morning bogue spice frame and it just was smooth easy. I mean a call that between nineteen fifty four nine thousand nine hundred sixty didn't really evolve to quickly back in those days drum brakes dion rare axe. Oh the one. I was very happy on three wheels waving. It's inside from wheel up in the air and an incredibly.

He hasn't stopped driving anything but in fact he's one of the few people on the planet to have driven cars race winning cars from every decade in the sports illustrious history many for his job on Sky Sports F one and those who watch sky if one. We'll know he's just as good at talking about cars as he is driving them.

"One alongside his friend Martin Brundle at Leisure and he then replaced none other than Nigel. Mansell at McLaren in one thousand nine hundred five after a spell at terrel marks was a roller-coaster Grand Prix career. And we talk about everything from the realities of living on a back of the grid former wage while raising a young family to is enduring. Friendship with Martin Brundle and his life now as a businessman and driver manager. I hope you enjoy our conversation. Mark Welcome to beyond the great lovely view on the show. Now I want to start by asking you about the first time you drove a Formula One car. Can you just paint the scene for us? Where were you and what impact did the call have? Only you know. That's a really good question on recommend my brain now because I think the first time I sent my backside at F. One Co was an airfield nickel the Williams factory because that was my first foray into fall allows test driver for the Williams Grand Prix team kicked off a moderation formula. Ford Sixteen hundred nine thousand nine hundred eighty four and by nineteen eighty nine was sitting in an f. One call about to become the test driver which back then was super fast transition. Now know we go. Babies JUMPING IN FORMULA. One calls lot younger step in at seventeen years old or something. So it's It's not very novel these days but It would have been then. I'm pretty sure of it and it would have been a straightforward up and down Arrow test and I think like everybody draws f. One call for the first time you all loan away no so much by the straight line performance but but his stopping power and that's always been the thing with with f one for me it's not really been that acceleration term speed. It's been the stopping power. The cornering loads and the finesse of every import evident output. And I think that's the pinnacle of Motorcycle F. One call when you ever get to drive on anyone who has will relate to him saying. Gotha clamor of so. It was an airfield near neither Williams factory. It wasn't Monaco is it. It wasn't my I regret to inform you. There was no glamour that time you know we get back then tell them that was the first sort of role as a full on test and development driver. You know I was kind of like the new kid on the block and the start of a generation of of test drivers but very fortunate. Because you know back then. I think I'm probably accumulated. You know ten thousand as an f one car testing during a season and not only. That was doing some fantastic work you know. Huge amount of work with semiautomatic books active ride suspension. So I was way up on all that technology much forever. Hit the most of the race car drivers at this on you. Touched on emanate ago. It was a very very fast transition for you from motorcross. Which is what you've done as a kid through two former one just five years. Why do you think Williams took a punt on someone so inexperienced really I went to the Williams factory to me frank with a guy who John McDonald who had been a previous form of one. I think with the the Ram F. Eighteen. He was running a company called middle rich which was a a race team Every thousand always doing every thousand at the time and we'll spot championship combined programs. We've Nissan. I think John took me there. Basically to say to frank as a young English kit who is a my is fast has got good feedback can memorize lots of information process it. You should have a test driver and it was off the back of John Recommendation that she the frank bought into it. I'm negotiate a fee so I was actually paid at that point incredibly small amount of money on my at at that stage it was the you know the entry point for me into F one and Eternally grateful for and to this day still treasure. All those moments we've Williams and John McDonnell big may have Bernie ecclestone so you're getting. You were sort of friends with the right people at that time. Well you know John. Jones got A very Very background and at the same time you know. He's he was from that generation. Yes see the likes of Bernie that he knew very very well. Frank lots of people but I don't take nothing away from the fact that she fru Jones recommendation having known me as as a young driver and woke me it helped to get into the factory at Williams and for frantic notice and and give me an opportunity Which is as you say. Frank Patrick head fantastic guys and you know there's A. There's a lot more of that story that we could get. But you know eternally grateful as you were with Williams for two years and that meant you touched base with well oversleep Patrick head. Who is the technical director? But also Adrian. Newey came on board at Williams at that time. Em what impression did they make on a young monk Blando? Hey I mean I think just being in that environment full stop was impressionable for a young racing driver and I took everything in and and try to resolve as much as possible. And I think we've got the caliber of Patrick head or newey a patty low. Yeah what patio on the semiautomatic and the active suspension side in. He went onto the far bigger things but they operate a different level. They expect a different level back. They don't take no for an answer and also take any prisoners. And so you know you make a mistake and you screw up. You're accountable and As a young guy I mean back then I was probably what twenty one years old Quiet responsibility and and you know an and quite awareness show this to to deliver back into an environment which at the time Williams were a top grump reaching a Grand Prix. Winning team how good were. Fw twelve and thirteen those two cars that you'd driving at song. I mean thirteen if it was a good car but not a great car in my my best ever racing car. I've ever sat in in my life would be enough w fourteen to drive that. I did find it and I'll tell you why because of the back of my Williams testing I got picked up by Brabham again another story because I should've had a manager at that stage. You should've told me to fourteen. Fourteen got the opportunity to drive the fourteen be as because Williams asked me to come back and test the calls. Even though I was a driver contractor to Brooklyn unheard of. It doesn't really go on I asked them. They were like no problem. We'd love to understand what their Williams is. All about Williams. Thank you very much coming through some work for us again. We'd like some evaluation feedback and it was Imola and and just on the Grand Prix Imola then. We did the testing afterwards. And I remember to this day going around and w full team be two point. Two seconds faster than what qualified with qualifying is in the Brabham and it was at that point. I realized I'd made an error judgment in going to Brabham. Because it just told me you know without any shadow of a doubt Euronews. Good as what you drive and that call was mighty I mean it was awesome and how much things like the semi automatic gearbox and active. Ride that you'd be working. How much did that look? Come on since he'd driven it before huge amounts. I mean massive step in technology from that side of things again. Just The purity of the of the package in terms of the dynamics. It was the beginning of the blown underwing error. You know will you. You've physically put you down on the for Oh pedal when you felt the rear end of the call school you know it was that effective and you know the balance mccaren and people talk about balance. It's not you sit in the car on top of one way or the other as about the balance of a platform of a car. Going INTO A corner we've just those little nuances as opposed. Ivan fundamental handling problems. A fourteen was Ni- on a perfectly balanced. Fundamentally was a fantastic alchemist. I must have been awesome bullet so you had a three year testing deal with Williams eighty nine hundred ninety one as you've touched on your ended outracing for Brabham in ninety-one how did that day. Oh come about so that came about purely because of my testing pay. So it's a really I mean it. Was you know we were running around doing all of these tests days back? Then you know those days. You had a full on test team. Had a very busy testing schedule. You were quite easily able to compare yourself against the drivers in the car racing So like teary boots and recalled at betrays these guys doing a good job and actually sticking some lap times together that were very comparable that sometimes even with the active ride car even quicker Yes we are technology enhancement with the COMP. It was getting back and it was getting noticed. And bram approach me again prove Jomaa Donald and a guy called Dennis Nursey. He was part of the Japanese ownership. Gakuen Koji Cuccia. Fingers name was back. Then yeah We always one that was sticking my mind I never forget. Turn off in Tokyo with Martin Brundle and the team owner picked us up in an St One rover which which was probably worth about eight hundred quid pro and we were in we made. I mean we both looked at each other in Spanish but then like is this guy supposed to be a billionaire or something. I'll maybe it's a novelty factor. I don't know yeah anyway. Yeah that the problem drive came about fruit for John. Again and again is relationship stuff which so often in f one goes on accounted for but there is a lot of relationship building that goes on didn't have a manager with was John McDonald. The closest thing you had to manager John was John was a guy that actually I think you know we related to each other. Yeah we probably spoke the same way And I think John could say Ame- someone who is hungry and could see there was a little bit of I was willing to go and do the extra mile and he would relate to that and I just felt that he could take a bit of a risk me and was quite happy to do so so he put me forward to Frank. Frank took me. I did a good job for them. He was then involved with Brabham Aladdin loss but he managed to get into a seat Was Thankful Yeah. Incredibly thankful. Was I think about sitting in on a couple of occasions because my check bounced and I didn't get paid non other stage but again this is former on. This is what it's all about. You know you look at it and you have this perception of Glitz and Glamour but where we were on the grid and what was going on. It was far from it but what we hopes going into that ninety one season with problem. Because you've given up. The Williams testing row ran oversleep at the time you know with the engine to have so as the right package the Williams Renault boots in and and portrays were coming towards the end of their careers. Did you not think there might be an opening at Williams in the near future? Y The problem thing I you know. Bring out really bad. Meme you're bringing up. You're bringing up fundamentally stuff that as a young guy. We've limited experience.

"Basically keeping pace at the front of the field even the ferraris are are about one full second a lap off the pace it is this is a weird race in terms of the degree to which for stop hamilton had this thing on lockdown and ferrari despite having an okay car. This year was just was just nowhere. The only explanation i can think of maybe is that <hes> leclair was saying coming into the race. The lack of downforce on the ferrari this weekend was pronounced. <hes> so my my only thought thought is that it was just a situation where the ferrari could maintain cornering speed or that you could be confident corner in but nevertheless the last the ferraris was falling farther and farther behind and the fields kind of stacking up behind them but in terms of like halloween for stop and they were just completely separate race ace which sure is a fact that was hammered home in the in the dying stages of this crime free indeed speaking of tyre tire strategy lap twenty two the mercedes pit crew jumps out into the pits like they're going to pit hamilton but hamilton drives by and and as martin brundle points out on the commentary for safety reasons. You're not allowed to put your crew into the pit lane unless there is a chance that you'll be pitting so legally legally.

Reynaud finally moving up in the world Hoss. Gino's and team have eight points along with McLaren racing point force India. Nope. I made that mistake just like Martin Brundle.

It's really sad to see the just how far back those drivers are once the checkered flag I super field. Robert commits almost just feel like a like a pylon. The people are just overtaking the states. It's it's really terrible on a waste of young talent as well. You know, it's just it's a bad. It's it's really a big shame for them. Yeah. So this is a this is our post race show. We're not going to die too much into news. Because really there isn't that much. We'll get into more of that next week. But we did want to shoot it over to some emails. This guys got some pressing stuff you want to cover for that. All right. Danny wanna take some emails. Sure, I've got a bunch of emails. They're gonna re debt three of the goodies that rose to the top Africans from Eric. It says the topic of Donnie Rick having to jump out of the car came up on the last episode. I'm an electrical engineer. So I can finally conjugate something useful to one. So the earth system possibly energizing the car the chassis will be at a higher electrical potential potential. However, there's no place for that charge to go as long as there's not a path to ground at the tires are very good insulators. That's like what is it like wearing rubber boots or something when your electrical work? So it can't get through that way on this long as the driver jumps off the car such that he doesn't make contact with both the car and the grant at the same time, they should be safe from electrical shock. I think the way the birds can sit on powerline knock it chucked never thought about that for this is why they instruct drivers to climb into the top of the car and then jump off with both feet. Until the car can be made safe if he were to touch the car and the ground like he would have to do if he reattached the steering wheel..

"A big admission anyway and martin brundle said and also ted crtv is a lot of people as well said that yeah he was very brave james for i frankly admit in that it was a a big call just to actually come on the radio in front of hundreds of billions of people's i listen i have lost the race instead of that team of you know we've lost the rate today we will fight back again you know we we lose his team we win as a team instead no one guy yeah actually it was all me unusually in any motors boys film is i'll be honest this as we all know fully away motorsports team game and at the same time you know as you say they will win or lose it's not often i'll be honest always very rare engineer on a radio in a former one race or another type survey seen as well to admit they've made a mistake and potentially lost a race for the team going to say canova saying earlier in the same mysterious of the calls but before the at one point being the oldie of the group should we admit it reminded me of ninety nine hundred ninety seven when the williams is before the front and everyone else is just forty out like flies so it's it's though no no this australia's well all right okay yeah i was thinking of the no that was eighty four monaco nobody wants now that's eighty six australia saw she can correct myself one point for an example that you had person center falling down the back of the field and there were so many calls retiring in between they made it back into the top six so yeah rid of a bit of a car break here the weekend also at the same time this one's about you build the best cars you push into the limits and you say exactly how for you can get on the tiny spare fuel the tiniest tweak for sets up so yeah no joy for from what i saw it was a pretty good race and i'll be honest i think it's actually red win on hope turf if we can call it bring organically so yeah i thought it was pretty good yes as you say team game we'll win you'll lose and they'll find this weekend exactly yeah they do move on to silverstone this week as part of the f ones i ever tripleheader weekend this weekend do we do know anyone who's actually going i know silverstone has various financial packages available for anyone who mean as soon as you have to start taking out like a mortgage or something similar just to get a race ticket may your prices are steep i'm not going not for that reason actually for that reason but many other people will i'm sure enjoy this weekend at silverstone the home of british mold spores and silverstone played host to now this'll be a perhaps a good comparison how many do we know phil how many were there at the recent speed machine weekend figure of surcharge remember i'm trying to remember ran about twenty nine thousand believe it was so again down in the small stove cirque area so a lot smaller overs got the toy pre circuit remember correctly mr brundle kosher figure of ninety five thousand apparently expected over the weekend i think that twenty thousand my the good as a representative figure if you put it up against maybe a friday even a frie i think frying friday you probably get just as many on the friday two because the cheaper tickets then on sunday although i don't know i've not even seen bothered to say an email from silverstone light last year at the sizing for the grand prix this year finance packages available no i don't think so i'm not i'm not taking credit just for just for lewis hamilton sebastian veto not worth it basically anyway that's another debate for another time but is register your thoughts how outraged are you at that and actually done the deed have you actually took out finance and i suppose if you're in debt to silverstone they oh you a good race they do oh so could you complain if they don't give you a good race so you don't have good experience of the hotdogs a little bit pricey or to halt or whatever then surely you could like renegotiate terms and could could could you actually get silverstone bailiffs coming around knocking on your door if you don't pay up he would do that anyway that's my mind just going crazy this call dell just financial packages.
